Comment Pay ONLY for what you VIEW not for their CONCRAP (Score 1) 107

COMCAST is a greedy fat little blood sucker that takes all that technology has to offer and screws it up with moronic menus and programming lineups, lethargic and useless VOD and database features, inconsistent policy, and BAIT AND SWITCH quarterly revision to service fees that require hours of wasted time to correct. They run infomercials on every channel, refuse to stagger the programming over the clock and calender, and advertise on packages that were once commercial free. It boggles the mind how their only skill is to offer the minimum amount of program choices over the maximum number of channels. I get less programming on 6 HBOs 6 Showtimes and 400 other channels than I did back in the 1990s on an analog oak box on less than 70 stations. So SCREW COMCAST and SCREW the FCC for making us have to pay for all of that wasted bandwidth and packaged crap. WE SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO PAY ONLY FOR WHAT WE GET, as apposed to getting what we "pay" for....I no longer am interested in COMCAST content or packages. If I decide to watch PBS and then just binge on whatever I want, and then decide to watch nothing for a week - then that's all I should pay to see. If they cannot organize their bandwidth then they should no longer be allowed to screw around with programming. Their duopoly programming advantage (NBC Universal vs. Viacom CBS) is a cornered market, and controls domestic media agenda. Netflix, Amazon, Youtube seem to know how on demand programming can function properly, so why can't they?. COMCAST MUST BE NEUTERED, They are the ONLY cable company in my market and I would rather do business with fascists. Death to BIG PIG corporate market exclusivity entitlement. Let the parasite die, if it can't or won't compete for its market share.

....Take, say, a bagel, for instance. The bagel didn't come out of nowhere. The bagel didn't create itself. The logical conclusion is the bagel was created. Extrapolate that out to the vastness of the universe. There is a creator.

Or perhaps, more precisely, there is a baker

...and are healthier and more robust"

These Shrimps ain't shrimps anymore, I guess. With a 40% increased growth rate we should feed that stuff to Yankees sluggers.

These statistics sound like those cattle and poultry farmers achieve from hormone injections. If these shrimp suddenly become lobsters maybe the cholesterol will be a little too high as well.

It seems to me that "healthier" is a marketing term, not a scientific matter of fact.

They are not unlike Emos.

If you go through life looking/acting like a refugee from a Dr.Seuss book you should expect to be mocked.

People who fuck through holes (in costumes, bathroom walls or bed sheets) deserve to be laughed and pointed at.

You are entitled to nothing.... no freebies.

And no substitutions.... green ham only

I've been taught my entire life that you will never get a break. so I've learned to live within my means and save to buy what I want.

Comment Re: Its easy, take your pick (Score 2) 319

The choice is yours the future is clear - you can chose good or chose to burn to death. Chose to win or lose and die. Its real freedom and a real choice. Its a true hypothetical vision or real hallucination of San Francisco and the Universe, pick one:

A) Over paid, under worked, black, real market bureaucrats who live large and plump when you cook 'em

B) Well-paid, Geeky, blooming better bus and uber car riding historians who never get in the way unless you're a legit taxi

C) Zero paid, hopeless, smelly, street people who contribute vomit and graffiti for a fair city life.

Not so fast ! Its a trick question ! Geek humanity won't possibly survive AynRandtopia if it can't get laid !

You whack the ball back and forth over the net, but you gotta win by two: Advantage, Deuce, Advantage Deuce, Game,. Set, Tie Breaker, Match. Its both the rules of the game and the game of the rules at the very same time. So its not, not just a game. Its not not the law.
