Comment Never trust a telco (Score 1) 582

"significant resources are spent to maintain 'legacy' POTS service" and when we kill POTS we can fire everyone and then keep our rates as high as they are and steal more money. An obvious win-win. For the telcos. Lose-lose-lose-lose-lose for us.

Also, the zoning board of my old town is so full of nimbys that they'd rather fall off the comms grid than erect a cell tower where it might be *gasp* VISIBLE! (ie. the only place a point-to-point signal is reliable.) Pretty sure they're not alone.

Fukt on many levels.

two points about valet keys.

Most cars have folding seats which can be opened into the trunk from the inside. second a lot of cars have internal trunk release levers. you can open the trunk from the front seat.

two points about people who have never had a valet key.

They're oblivious to the fact that a proper valet key can LOCK THE FUCKING SEATS. second there's a switch in the glove box that you lock with a key to turn off the electronic trunk release.

Car designers are smarter than you. And unlike you, the people that valet park at the airport probably aren't borrowing your ex-roommate's little sister's 3rd generation hand-me-down Saturn.
