Rethink This, AT&T
10 February, 2011

Today we picked up our brand-new, Verizon iPhones. Our OG iPhones were slaved, of course, to AT&T and thus suffered horrible audio quality and most calls being dropped. That’s right: most calls. We experienced well over 50% of calls being dropped. From whence comes our deep and abiding antipathy toward AT&T.

We are ecstatic to have switched to Verizon: outstanding audio quality, no dropped calls, and not a single penny going to AT&T.


It Can Happen

In the fifth grade I proudly reported that my great-grandmother traveled in a covered wagon. As I got older, I realized her birth in 1890 was about half a century late for the westward immigration implied. So for years I thought I had embarrassed myself by reporting an inaccuracy. While researching my genealogy I discovered that my great-grandmother had taken a noteworthy trip in a covered wagon circa 1895, albeit eastward to visit her grandmother.

So it turns out I was right. Yay for me!

This morning while watching Joel McHale heckle Mega Python vs. Gatoroid my spouse commented on the silly spelling of theĀ the channel formerly known as the Sci-Fi Channel. Later whilst we were watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory Leonard makes the same comment.

Coincidence? I think not. It’s obvious they’ve been spying on us again. From the future. And then going back in time. Oh, it would all make sense if Christopher Nolan filmed it.
