Comment Depends (Score 4, Interesting) 29

You know those commercials that sometimes come on local stations late at night for "Consumers Cellular"? The ads sell it like a cell phone provider for old people, since they always have sixty-somethings being hip with their no-contract cell phones and buying slutty red dresses to see if they can interest their hubbies in one more roll in the clover.

What you may not know, is that Consumer Cellular is actually a really good provider. You pay as you go, you can use practically any smartphone, including the iStatus from Apple. They mail you out a sim card and away you go. Data, calls, texts, it's cheap as shit. If you pay attention to what you're doing and know your way around, you can even avoid giving them real information, so it's the anonymity of a burner phone and the convenience of a major provider. And no contracts.

My wife has some Cadillac plan from one of the big providers, but when my contract was up with AT&T but my phone was still good, I figured, "What the hell?" and tried Consumers Cellular. It works great, has coverage wherever the other companies have coverage and AT&T can just suck my dick.

The hyphenation in Berners-Lee is a linguistic device, whereas Wasserman-Schultz is statement of Womyn's Liberation.

And he outs himself as a troll from /pol after all. Another Matt Forney/RooshV wannabe.

In case you don't know who that is, Matt Forney is a "men's rights activist" and all-around scumbag. Here's a photo, in case you're wondering why he's a man-going-his-own-way (MGTOW):

And RooshV is a guy who lives with his mom and writes pick-up guides about smashing puss. He believes rape should be legal, and has never been with a woman that he didn't pay for.

So the rest of you: the next time you see an AC trolling here, don't get upset wondering where all the messed up "nerds" have come from. These ACs calling people "nigger" and "kike" are just greasy scumbags who got lost on their way from the /pol sewers to Stormfront.

From Kurt Vonnegut's 1962 short story 2 B R 0 2 B:

âoeIn the year 2000,â said Dr. Hitz, âoebefore scientists stepped in and laid down the law, there wasnâ(TM)t even enough drinking water to go around, and nothing to eat but sea-weedâ"and still people insisted on their right to reproduce like jackrabbits. And their right, if possible, to live forever.â

Also, there was a telephone booth in the story!

And slashdot STILL mangles unicode. I'd be ashamed to work there.
