Yes but they gave you 6 what instead of 2 what?

My Thunderbolt is 3 years old so I have been month to month for the last year. The choice seems to be getting a new phone on ebay and swapping the SIM card or losing my unlimited data plan in order to get the roughly $200 discount on a new phone from Verizon. I usually don't use anywhere near 2 Gigs a month, but it's nice to have unlimited data and not worry about it.

it's okay, but the Hygiene of the characters throw me off, especially the pearly white teeth..   It's a meh so far

That's funny. I'm noticing the perfect teeth in a lot of shows now where it just stands out.

Even in modern day shows they can bother me. Like in Bates Motel one of the sons has these super white and perfect teeth that stands out in contrast to who his character is supposed to be (poor and a bit of a drifter). So any time he flashes those things it just is a bit jarring to see.

I always think of the bar scene in one of the Back to the Future movies where he's in the old west. A guy walks up to Fox and yells something like "Where'd you get those pearly white teeth!"

The only game I purchased during the Autumn sale was Brutal Legend. For $1.99 it was a steal. Didn't know much about it and so far I really like it. Fun with the Jack Black intro and game premise.

Just can't hold it in any longer, Chiefs 9-0, man it feels good, despite all of the teams flaws, they seem to pull it together and win. I am being realistic, however, and know it won't last, but I have been letting myself enjoy each win for 24 hours before nitpicking on them. Looking forward to the next 3 games because it will give a better idea of where the team will finally end up.

They have a good defense, a fairly safe offense and a veteran coach to keep things running smooth.  Its not flashy but it does win games. 

Unless they play Denver.  icon_wink

Companies offer cheap premiums and people are surprised when they don't get the same coverage? Shocking! If only the government could come in and make it all "free".  Roll Eyes

Quote from: Autistic Angel on October 31, 2013, 09:37:11 PM


In short, the ACA was written to allow people to keep their existing plans while forbidding insurance providers from ratcheting up the price for that privilege.  It also requires that insurance companies actually honor the terms of their contracts by paying out when people get sick, rather than rescinding the policy and keeping years of paid premiums for themselves.

This means all those cheap "junk policies" aren't lucrative any more, so the insurance companies are responding by offering comprehensive coverage plans as mandated by the law.

Waitaminute - so prior to Obamacare insurance companies could sell these junk policies and then say "oh you're sick? Tooo bad, your coverage just expired today, so sorry!" without any repercussions? Whatever happened to free market economic principles that were supposed to weed out these kinds of policies? Surely the people would flock to an insurer that offered cheap policies without the shenanigans and, via sound capitalist principles, ensure that the market would drive out the bad policies and only keep the good ones?

Waiting to hear from free market advocates...

Stop pretending that prior to Obamacare we had anything remotely resembling a free market in the health care industry. A free market requires unregulated prices and the ability of any company to enter the market to compete. Companies can only overcharge when the government limits their competition through regulations (i.e., making it too expensive to run a start-up) or outright barriers (e.g., not letting insurance companies do business across state lines).
