I'll agree with you that honest people don't need to tell you they're honest, but in my experience the BBB complaints actually worked (sort of... I had to file the second complaint because Comcast reneged on the first after six months...).
Actually, yes. I occasionally go on weekend trips and having to bring a charger quite sucks. Even at home, my girlfriend runs out of charge almost once a week. It really is a hassle.
Has there been some change over recent years that has made phones hard to get out of your pocket?
Yes. They are now FUCKING HUGE. I really miss my RAZR V3.
To do the same thing with The Pirate Bay, I'd have to sit at my computer, search their website, filter out all the weird containers like DivX and MKV, try to find a non-HD file that would take multiple hours to download, make sure the MP4 version I choose has subtitles and will play on my AppleTV, download the file, wait for at least 30 to 60 minutes for the download, add to my iTunes library and then finally watch the movie on my TV.
Half the stuff in that list is the fault of the Apple TV, not The Pirate Bay.
They went over to Africa to help the people there and we want to ostracize them for 21 days when they get back?
Pathogens don't care how much of a hero you are. FWIW, the same thing is being done to soldiers, and it seems no one in the media is crying over them.
There is a nonzero time interval between when they notice symptoms and when they get to a hospital. During that time, they could potentially pass on the virus.
Listen, we the great unwashed are ordered to get our shots for everything under the sun. Admittedly, things like the flu are more common and more likely to kill you than ebola. But most of us aren't fans of bleeding to death from every orifice. We expect a high level of dedication from our medical professionals, and when they disregard protocol (that is, what they said protocol was before they changed it suddenly) it makes it harder for the rest of us to take them seriously.
BBC, Al Jazeera et. al. run exposes on my local politicians' hijinks and corruption?
If I want a functioning DVR, I have to rent one from them for like $400/yr or some BS like that.
Or you would have to swap out your tuner for an HDHomeRun Prime (or similar) and get a CableCard.
I cancelled cable and went with Netflix and Hulu.
...but this was the better solution anyway.
The report proves the problem is not technical, but rather a result of business decisions.
Is anybody actually surprised by this?
This has always been about maximizing profits, and preventing a competitor from gaining access to your customers.
Because cable companies are ran by assholes.
The Bible is "God approved".
Sorry, but to anybody who isn't a believer in your damned god
Anybody who made such claims now would be investigated for schizophrenia, and a host of other mental illnesses. So why should we believe these people were any different?
Just because you believe god himself wrote that book, doesn't mean there's any truth to that, or proof of it.
The existence of the bible is not proof of god. Not even a little.
So, if god wants to tell us what is approved, why doesn't he get on his loudspeaker, and tell all of us what he's thinking instead of whispering in the ear of crazy people? Surely he's got the ability to remove any ambiguity and confusion?
Your collective delusion is your problem. Don't offer it as proof to the rest of us. Because we're not buying it.
The "Gnostic Gospels" aren't all gnostic, and most of them aren't gospels. And the Book of Mormon is not called "the Bible" even by Mormons.
If you're going to stretch this out to such lengths, then the Qur'an is also "the Bible" and maybe the Bhagavad Gita and the Satanic Bible are "the Bible".
