Once they've been caught. Fluke being one of the major names in meters they absolutely knew what they were doing in choosing that color. They were hoping the color recognition would help sell units. It was part of this companies marketing strategy. Make a meter that people will think 'its like a Fluke' when they look at it. Which is exactly why it's trademarked. Now I will agree trademarks in general are silly, but for these guys to plead naive is also.

So you're saying that people in the last 20 or so years of their lives who believe that once they die it is all over, and are coming to the realization that the minuscule amount of time they spent on this Earth means nothing, are more stressed than those who may hold the belief that maybe, just maybe there is something else? Shocking. I'll also say that you will see a trend of people who have claimed for a good part of their lives are atheist (in reality they are agnostic) actually find themselves peering over the edge of the abyss as they get older and in some form start to find God.

Who is collecting these taxes? Last I knew there aren't any Federally run colleges, so how is it getting distributed? Most people can easily afford their state college and university tuitions which are already subsidized by state taxes. The people with crazy loans are those who have decided to go to a private school. In which case that was their choice. Completely unworkable with our current education system.

As evil as they may be they were by far the easiest and most accommodating when I had to deal with my mothers accounts after her passing. All I had to do was give them the $ of her last bill to show it was me and they even gave me money back retroactive to the date of her death. TMobile on the other hand wanted to keep billing me until I had full power of attorney to cancel her account. What a nightmare they are.
