Our rates went down from $1500/mo to $1300/mo for a family of 5 with medical, dental, vision, and prescription coverage. We're in Maryland and ages are 34, 34, 4, 3, and 3. We kept all of our doctors.

Oops. Missed one.

That's OK, we'll check on you next year as you re enroll. We've had some problems with our computer systems keeping up but we're working on it....

That is why the prudent iOS User with hardware > 1 Generation "back", waits a few days/weeks to see if they should Upgrade. After all, all it takes to not Upgrade, is to, well, not Upgrade. You iOS Device will continue to work exactly as always.

The truly prudent iOS (or for that matter OS X) user waits until the .2 release to upgrade. That gives all of the beta testers, err, early users, time to debug the stuff that Apple, despite having a closed hardware platform, just never seems to manage very well. By the second point release, most of the mainstream bugs have been fixed as best they ever will.

I could even see circumstances in an Apollo-Thirteen kind of accident where engineers at NASA could come up with a fix that's safer and more reliable than duct-taping some plastic sheeting to a bulkhead because the tech to manufacture a few parts exists with those that need those parts.

As opposed to use socks and duct tape? Philistine. I weep for the world that was.

Things got serious.

Commenting with wit, snark and the very occasional bit of insight went from a light whimsical passtime, to a grave risk of the men in black showing up and disappearing me.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is why bath salts are bad for you.

Get off of it. NSA and friends cares not one flying fuck what goes on around here. You aren't dangerous. A group of overweight, Cheetos flavored clowns locked in basement isn't a threat to anyone.

Actually, it's television. Before TV (and now the Internet) you pretty much had to see people in person - radio was a poor simulacrum. Now, you can ' be with' your voters, up front and personal, pancaked and coiffed to look perfect.

With the Internet, you can tailor yourself to be exactly what the voter wants you to be. No more bad hairdays. No more potential assassins.
