Who would have thought that this thread would turn into a flame war?


What flames? All I'm reading are valid complaints from real-world experience and a delusional person trying to defend horrible UI decisions for a corporation that we all know doesn't care one way or the other.

Big fukn surprise that the girls who belittled us in high school and college might have a hard time dealing with the social outcasts they themselves created later on in life. Remember, ladies, cosplay says you're slutty, not necessarily nerdy. There's a difference.

"significant resources are spent to maintain 'legacy' POTS service" and when we kill POTS we can fire everyone and then keep our rates as high as they are and steal more money. An obvious win-win. For the telcos. Lose-lose-lose-lose-lose for us.

Also, the zoning board of my old town is so full of nimbys that they'd rather fall off the comms grid than erect a cell tower where it might be *gasp* VISIBLE! (ie. the only place a point-to-point signal is reliable.) Pretty sure they're not alone.

Fukt on many levels.

two points about valet keys.

Most cars have folding seats which can be opened into the trunk from the inside. second a lot of cars have internal trunk release levers. you can open the trunk from the front seat.

two points about people who have never had a valet key.

They're oblivious to the fact that a proper valet key can LOCK THE FUCKING SEATS. second there's a switch in the glove box that you lock with a key to turn off the electronic trunk release.

Car designers are smarter than you. And unlike you, the people that valet park at the airport probably aren't borrowing your ex-roommate's little sister's 3rd generation hand-me-down Saturn.

Are you kidding me? Have you seen the size of Nevada? Do you know how far Reno is from the Hoover Dam?? 2 seconds on Google would have shown you that Reno is powered by the natural gas fired Frank A. Tracy Generating Station. Furthermore, Clark County has FIVE nat-gas plants AND a coal burner to power Vegas and friends. The vast majority of Hoover power goes to CA and AZ.
