## Comment Re:The whole concept of 1%/wealth is ... irrelevan (Score 1)1799

Just doing a little math and public numbers .. assuming the US has a population of about 310M, then 3.1M people would be 1% (since I don't know if it's adults or adults and kids, they are using the 1% nomenclature for, let's just start someplace.) According to Wikipedia, the total net worth in the US is \$55T. That means that if 1% of the population (3.1M) have 90% of wealth, then they have about \$50T or about 16M/person, and the rest of us (the 99%) have \$17K per person.

First, 90% is way too high. The top 1% of the population probably has between 40-50% of total wealth. Second, income/wealth is obviously not uniformly distributed among either of the two groups being analyzed.

I actually refused scholarships in high school because my family could pay for me to go to any school I wanted, and I wanted the scholarship money to go to those who really needed it.

It would be better if this film was retractable like a true shade - on a hot summer day, when one's not home, this could be keeping the house cool by not letting light in.

There are many developers on the CyanogenMod team that are still dedicated to further development. There's been little progress because they're all waiting for a new version of android, and more recently the kernel.org hack put a halt to current efforts. I think reports of CM's death have been greatly exaggerated.

Eeek! You are fat! Ah well, you meant pounds? Not kilograms? Ah ... and you are male, no worries. BTW: would you like to carry my camera and equipment?

I usually take someone at their word when they bother to include units. Also, I've never met any men named Samantha, but there's a first time for everything, I suppose.

But even the "unlimited" plan is capped @ 5 GB.

For the millionth time, this isn't true. Please stop repeating this. I am on an unlimited plan. The data is unlimited. That said, I am grandfathered in and new customers won't be able to get this plan.
