I grew up in Ireland. The skinflint, poorly funded national television station, RTE, would (it seemed) gather any and every form of viewing content to fill the daily programme schedule. So - a lot of public domain stuff was shown. Can't say it was necessarily a bad thing. Lots of Harold Lloyd, Laurel and Hardy, early Popeye, Keystone Cops - probably anything they only had to pay a nominal handling fee for. The downside was a lot of horrible Czech and Polish animation that defied a young child's willingness to be amused. I found some of this animation recently (out of idle curiosity) and it is still as bad now as it was then! So, free is not always a good thing...
Mainly the clergy.
Did they have the 'Hooray for Harold Lloyd' theme music? If so, they have been around in that form for at least 35 years as I used to watch them when I was a teenager.
Last time I looked there were a lot of silent films at internetarchive.org
Think of the children whose lives will be saved.
So, best not attend ball games, the beach or parking lots in case of a one in several million chance of being struck? Meh
Competitors? Ha, ha, ha. It's mostly monopoly here friend.
I doubt very much this had anything to do with Comcast's customer service reputation. The government doesn't give a shit about that stuff. I, perhaps niavely hope, that this decision was actually an intelligent, reasoned one, but really, I wait to hear the details of the machinations that went on behind it all. Someone somewhere made some money from this.
Yes, I am saying exactly that. Good day sir.
I'm relieved to hear this. I have been falsely accused by some bitter douchebags of being a narcissist. Since I don't have a facebook account it is clear that they were all wrong. Vindicated at last! Thank you sir! And here's another exclamation mark: !
If you were as arrogant as you think you are you wouldn't have condescended to reply! Come on, it's time to up your arrogance game.
My surprise overwhelms me. Just, how could they? I mean...I'm speechless
You are: crass asshole. FTFY
Watches? The last thing I want is a thing on my wrist. As soon as I got a cell phone - what? 13 years ago - watchless. Stupid unnecessary things. Rings, tattoos, ear rings - fuck all of that stupid shit. Cue boring fuckwads with stories of their grandfathers watches handed down, blah, blah...pathetic.
