Not MARK! Geez god, no, please not him! Tell me he is NOT leaving! This is the END!!!
Who is Mark?
Seriously dude, navelgazing, stop doing it.
I once knew a person like you, a most entitled little piece of shit who never did anything for anyone ever. And he couldn't figure why he couldn't hang on to a good job. Because NOBODY liked him, so at the first opportunity he got fired not because of cost cutting but simply because nobody wanted his odious ass around.
Enjoy your dead end life.
Nothing, but nothing warmed the cockles of his heart like the 8 billion no-bid contract given to the company he was once CEO of.
Name one other company that even offered (let alone could deliver - never mind competitively, price-wise) what Haliburton specialized in doing. Please, go ahead.
While you're hunting down that non-existent company, please also discuss on the no-bid contract awarded to the company that so gloriously just executed Healthcare.gov, despite there being all kinds of competition (to say nothing of companies with competent track records) willing and able to do the job.
Your kidding right ?
I understand that they've been working on how to decide which people will get to colonize new worlds, and which people will be stuck here. They've boiled it down to determining cognitive horsepower by looking at whether or not people can grasp the difference between "your" and "you're" - so, that's a shame, huh? Oh well!
If you're really going to maintain that you can't find a bank with free checking, then you're some kind of extra special uninterested in looking. It's almost like you don't want to bother opening such an account because that would take the fun out of whining about The Man and pretending that everyone else is being paid by The Man just so The Man can keep you down. You're just embarrassing yourself.
There's only one person trying to make a point, here. You. I'm just telling you the facts. You're the one trying to pretend they don't exist, and resorting immediately to telling someone else to fuck off so you can distract from reality. What do you get out of pretending that hundreds of banks aren't out there competing for your business? Is it really that important to you that prop up your silly world view by pretending that trivially demonstrable basic facts aren't real? Do you understand how that makes you sound? Let me guess. You also think evolution isn't real, right? Get a grip.
How much do they pay you to post this shit, really?
Ah, yes. The classic ad-hominem-strawman combo! Anything to avoid substance, of course, right?
We just talked about this. Banks make money putting money to work. That's how mine make money, and it's why I chose them. BofA has all sorts of accounts without fees. Walk in, talk to a branch manager, and get one. Of course, you'd have to get off your but and put aside the shrill whining for a few minutes, and I know that's upsetting to you. Your mom can drive you.
When the monthly charge for a checking account with 500USD was only 6$ and paper checks and phone support were free, I might have believed this bullshit.
I'm sorry that you're too lazy to shop around, but not too lazy to troll here. I've got several checking accounts, spread around four different banks. None of them carry a monthly fee. None of them charge me anything to write checks (though I do have to pay to get checks printed, which I do very cheaply at Costco), and none of them have ever charged me to talk to them, because I've only ever had to talk to them about opening or closing accounts, or about something they wanted to talk about. Everything else is self-service via dial-up or online, and via mobile apps, and costs nothing.
What part of the "infrastructure" do you think they'll be claiming to provide for previously free-over-public-network-lines bitcoin transactions?
Gee, I don't know
Charge you to hold it
You mean, charge you to provide the service of holding it, which includes people, infrastructure, legal and regulatory costs, and more.
charge you to transfer it
You mean, charge you to provide the infrastructure, support, people, reporting, and security around transferring it.
charge you to talk to phone support rep
Right. Charge you for making a person's time available to you when they already provide no-charge mechanisms to get the same information by other means.
gamble with it on the side
Sure, interest rates are low right now. But where do you think interest comes from? How do you think loans happen?
So yeah...delivery drones will potentially reduce the delivery time of those amazon packages to 30 minutes...for a cost of $5,000 per package
Are you assuming that each drone will self destruct after dropping of a new SSD drive in the rooftop mailroom chute at an office building? I expect they're planning to use the same drone more than once. Sort of like we use UPS trucks at least three or four times before destroying them.
If it was a hit song, then why is there no income in July? And August? Oh wait, there is, he might still be collecting money for work done years for DECADES to come.
Who else gets payed for work they did once? Let him add the total, over his lifetime AND his childrens lifetime, and divide it by the number of hours he spend on it. Wanna bet it comes to far more then minimum wage? And this is ONE source of payment? You ever did work and get payed by multiple people for decades to come? No, me neither.
This artist purposely uses misleading data. That means he is a lying piece of scum.
