I Got Verizon FiOS today...

For phone, internet and cable TV.

I think I'm in love.

Phone works, internet is fast as hell, and 100's of TV channels I will probably never watch.

I can download shit so fast now, it's crazy.

I'm so happy, I just thought I'd share.

How fast is fibre optic compared to normal lines?

Women's tennis sucks.

Advertised as up to 30 Mbps downloads. The reality is much slower of course. But still, it is way faster than the cable internet access I had through Comcast.

Re: I Got Verizon FiOS today...

I hate Verizon and their lobbying asses. Glad you're happy though.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

well for $179/month it better be 30Mbps. but at the lower end it says $34/month for 5-10mbps which is twice as fast as lower end dsl. not bad. particularly for that price. but i never was a fan of having the fastest connection because if the site is running slow it makes no dif. and most sites that i am on, www.cuteoverload.com and so on dont even take advantage of the connection i have. so for me its not so good.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"
