T-Mobile has a program that gives you 1000 minutes or texts for $100, and you have a 1 year to use them. I'm not on the phone a lot, so that lasts me five or six months. So I'm paying less than $20 per month.
For years I used a long password at Vanguard. Then I discovered they only use the first 10 characters. So not only do that use weak passwords, they don't even tell you. You could have a long password, but if the first 10 were easily guessed or socially engineered, you wouldn't even know it.

In the second, students were able to differentiate the political affiliation of other college students. Accuracy in both studies was about 60% — not perfect, but way better than chance."

University of Utah research professor of geophysics Robert Smith led four separate studies that verify a plume of hot and molten rock at least 410 miles deep that rises at an angle from the northwest."
