Seeing all those dipshits walking around with a bluetooth headset glued to the side of their face 24/7 reminds me a little too much of the Cybermen. It's creepy. Also, you don't impress anyone, and you don't NEED a phone attached to your head all the god damn time. Nobody is that important. Fucking idiot douchbags.

What about brandy-drinking conspirators in shadowy rooms at 3 in the morning?  Didn't you ever see the 5th season of 24?  What the Hell are they supposed to do, use a land line?  HUH?  DIDN'T THINK ABOUT THAT, DID YOU?

Yeah i have met a few people who did that and there are people in Wal mart all the time who think you need one for your new HDTV to work!

So I know it's happening.

Three pages and not one person has wrote "What's the Frequency Kenneth" yet.    Very impressive.

Obama's got this.

I doubt they will push it back, maybe a few weeks, lots of big companies with lots of lobbyists payed billions to use the frequencies that are being freed up.
