Seems like you fucking Canadians have the same problem. The speed limit is 65 miles per hour. Not kilometers. Move your fucking minivan over to the slow lane. I'm looking at you, lady with the Quebec plates!

As a slow driving lady with a Quebec licence plate. (Our cars only have a plate on the back), I resent you implying that I have a minivan, you insensitive clod.

also anecdotal

I had a 3GS that I got used. Last year, Rogers in Quebec had a deal with 5G of data, unlimited texting, unlimited local calling and domestic long distance for $70. I got an iPhone 5 on contract. What the hell? Anyhow, the clerk started pushing me towards Samsungs, but once he found out I already had an iPhone, stopped pushing the Nexus.

He then told me that Rogers pushes the Android phones harder because there is more profit in it for them.

Whether it's true or not, I can't say, but Tim Cook might be right in saying that people bought something that they were manipulated into. However, that's business and I am sure that there are people who are walking around with expensive Apple products that they don't need or planned to by either.

Secondly, this is Facebook, many people who might be in the 50 options of gay and transgender should be wary of trusting a company not to share that information beyond what the user originally sets in their privacy settings.

Finally, many people who might considered to be in the 50 options of gay and transgender and happy with the dichotomy.
