Position On Time Travel / Travelers On NetFlix

My friends and I had a rather interesting conversation about time travel last week… well… every conversation I have with anyone about time travel is interesting.

I used to believe that it would be like Back To The Future I, where Marty has yet to go back in time to change his parents future. Like we are still on the original time line where we don’t know about time travel because its discovery hasn’t happened yet. I thought this for years. Time travel hasn’t happened yet so we’re still getting there.

Then I kinda flip flopped and changed my thinking to more align with what average people think about time travel… like it hasn’t happened yet so we know it’s not possible. Kinda like in Back To The Future II, Lost, and Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban. We can’t change things by going back in time because we would have already done so.

I am able to debate either way. I wasn’t 100% on either way and I’m still unsure. It make sense way 1 in which we haven’t reached in time where we have the ability to go back in time (the original timeline theory), but it also makes sense way 2 (we can’t change time because we would have already done so).


Over the weekend we binged watched Travelers on NetFlix (I HIGHLY recommend it). It was awesome but it got me thinking about time travel yet again. My issue with Travelers is that they take over someone’s body just as they’re about to die. Wouldn’t that change the future? To me it would create a paradox since that person didn’t die on that day or in that way so then the traveler couldn’t go back and take over that person. As the season progressed, their actions did have futuristic consequences like they intended; just not the desired outcome quite yet.

I’m optimistic about season 2 but we’ll have to wait until December I guess for a new season.

In the end I continue to remain on the fence about time travel… not that it’s not possible but that if it is, would something have already happened or are we just living the original time line?

I guess we’ll never know until we know?

Years Of Living Dangerously

I’m really excited that finally a network is giving some attention to our climate change problem. Showtime now has a series out, Years of Living Dangerously, which airs Sunday’s at 10PM.

The other week the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) shouted saying, “Hey guys! We have a problem here!” and no one was listening. And it doesn’t have to be that difficult. Instead places like Oklahoma, who is now making solar and wind more expensive.

One of the reasons I became a vegetarian was to help the planet. I also ride a scooter, recycle, put solar panels on my house, bought a Prius, bought an electric car, reuse as much as I can, etc to help the planet and reduce my carbon footprint.

I think with a little effort we can do amazing things. For instance why don’t we stop eating meat one or two days a week? Why don’t we plant some trees? Or get a pile of recyclables and take them somewhere if you can’t recycle at your house? I think little things that won’t change your lifestyle can make a difference.

If you have Showtime, make sure to catch Years of Living Dangerously. They have celebrities like Harrison Ford, Jessica Alba, Chris Hayes, and Michael C. Hall on there who go investigate climate change and its effect. It’s pretty cool. Check it out if you can.

This problem of climate change doesn’t and shouldn’t be political.

Dexter’s Ending: Not The Worst, But Almost

I know I’m not the first one to gripe, as I was griping through the entire season and last nights final episode. I’m just confounded beyond belief. It wasn’t what I was expecting at all.

Let’s start with the Titanic references:

  • When Dexter was saying bye to Harrison, it did sound like “it’s good bye for a little while, only for a little while”. What fathers said to their kids before the kids got on the lifeboats.
  • When Dexter put Deb in the ocean, it seemed like he was going to say “I’ll never let go, Deb, I’ll never let go”.

I don’t get Dexter leaving Harrison with Hannah. That’s like the last person he should be left with. First time Harrison talks back, the bitch will poison him. And why isn’t anyone looking for Harrison? Did they assume he went down with the ship like Dexter?

Didn’t Dexter sell his apartment? Didn’t he give his car to Astor? Didn’t he sell his boat? He was ready to leave a lot of loose ends before he left the country.

What about their stuff? Harrison’s never going to have all of Dexter and his belongings? What happened to the blood slides?

And a lumberjack? Seriously? What did they just throw darts on a dart board with random crappy ideas at the beginning of the season… Oka, Hannah’s back… oka, lumberjack… oka, Deb dies.

Dexter left too many characters hurt by his disappearance. There’s like no closure for that pain. Everyone just assumes he’s dead without ever knowing that he was a serial killer… I will give it this, at least it didn’t leave a lot of loose ends with the characters.

Elway’s asleep on a bus. Last of that awesome character.

Quinn is tore apart because of Deb.

And what about Deb’s body’s disappearance? No one is looking for the body? No one looked at the tapes and saw Dexter take the body?

I get it that Deb was Dexter’s last kill. I get that the whole lumberjack thing was his torture. He thinks that everyone in his life dies. He has no pain now; no nothing; he’s just a shell. Is that his punishment?

What I Would Have Liked To See

I wanted an ending where people found out about Dexter. I wanted an ending where Dexter died by the hands of Miami Metro via a shoot out or something. I wanted to see a semi-happy ending where, years later, Deb and Quin were married and raising Harrison. Where Astor and Codey were a part of their lives. Where Hannah was caught by Elway and he collected the reward. Where the Miami Metro department knew the truth… how some would praise Dexter as a hero and most as a villain. I wanted to see more cameo’s of past characters.

How I’m Imagining The Series Now

Like I said in an earlier Dexter post; the series ended right before the Rita death scene. Dexter and Rita meet and have a nice vacation together and Dexter continues being a hidden serial killer. Everyone’s happy. No one dies. It sucks that Deb doesn’t find “true love” and that Lundy died but hell… maybe I’ll imagine a season where Deb and Quin hook up and get married. I need to watch them again to complete this fantasy. Seasons 5-8 can be thrown away!

Series That Had Bad Endings

Big Love – In the history of all bad endings, Big Love takes the cake. Bill dies at the hands of his neighbor? Who the fuck saw that coming? And there was no closure with the other supporting characters. We never saw Wonda again or baby Joey… just some minor closure with the main characters… Still don’t understand how Margie could have taken a cruise 2 months after her husband dies but whatever. And her “dreams” weren’t reveled until that very last episode. They were in too quick of a hurry to wrap it up.

Series That Had Decent Endings

Frasier – I kinda liked it that he went to Chicago to find Laura Linney. It left me hopeful that he’d finally found love and happiness. It just sucked that he was far away from Martin, Niles, and Daphne. But I loved that Daphne and Niles had a kid. We never saw the other characters again though. No Lillith, no Fredrick, no Bulldog.

Lost – After rewatching it again and again, I like the ending. I just wish I knew more about how Hugo ran the island and if the plane made it safely to the main land. I know now that Jack dies which is probably for the best since he was a douche most of the time.

Series That Had Good Endings

Scrubs – Besides the “Scrubs 2.0” which was kinda funny; I thought they wrapped up Scrubs pretty well. It had a lot of closure. We saw a lot of the characters from before when J.D. walked out of the hospital for the last time. I thought it was nice. And it showed glimpses of their futures.

House – This TV show had an ending that everyone should take a lesson from: live your life. It was great that House faked his own death and that him and Wilson were riding motorcycles across the country together. It was a very happy ending and a good moral. We all need to live our lives more.

Monk – That show had an excellent ending. I loved the fact that they finally tied up the loose end with Trudy. I thought it was great that Trudy had an estranged daughter that Monk fell in love with (as a father). I loved the fact that he found that part of Trudy and how they basically lived happier ever after. He continued his detective work.


I’ve just finished watching one of HBO’s older shows, Oz, on HBO GO. It had six seasons. I’m seeing a lot of people I recognize. And the crazy thing is, they’re all in a bunch of the same shows. Here’s a list of people I recognize from each show.

Law & Order: SVU

  • J.K. Simmons (Doctor Emil Skoda)
  • Dean Winters (Detective Brian Cassidy)
  • B.D. Wong (Doctor George Huang)
  • Chris Meloni (Detective Elliot Stabler)
  • Philip Casnoff (special guest star in Pixies)


  • Harold Perrineau (Michael Dawson)
  • Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko)
  • Lance Reddick (Matthew Abaddon)
  • Ken Leung (Miles Straume)


  • Lauren Velez (Lieutenant Maria LaGuerta)
  • David Zayas (Sargent Angel Batista)
  • Erik King (Sargent James Doakes)

Just kinda crazy. I thought I’d blog about it.


Finally tonight’s the night! Usually that’s for Dexter but tonight it’s TrueBlood. We’ve been waiting a year for this. WTF is going to happen? Last we left off some serious s**t went down. Obviously they’ve got to continue where they left off.

I’m also very excited to see the sexy Chris Meloni join the cast. I loved him when he was in SVU. It’ll also be great to see Denis O’Hare come back as the evil Russell Edgington.

This season should be awesome.

Quote From Bill Maher IV

Not trying to quote Bill Maher so much but he had another good rant on Overtime this week. The panel was talking about Michelle Duggar and her campaigning with Rick Santorum and how overpopulation is a lie. Bill Maher said it pretty well.

You know what it is? I hear this from people all the time. They say have you ever flown over the country and when you look down, there’s a lot of nothing? That’s true but that’s not the issue. It’s about resources. It’s true we could actually fit on the planet a lot more people but there’s not enough food and water for them. Especially now that China and India are eating meat and getting cars. We just can’t do it. We would need to like triple the population, we’d need like five more earths. Again this comes from scientists, it’s not in the Bible, it’s probably bull s**t.

Is it so bad that I think that the Duggars are sick and selfish? When people have so many kids, it makes me not want to have kids even more to try to decrease the population and make up for them being so selfish and procreating in such abundance. The earth can only handle so much.

How I’ll Get Through Dexter Season 6 +

Warning: Spoilers for those who haven’t seen Dexter season 4… none about season 6 episode 1 (aired last night).

I hated Dexter season 5 with a passion. The first episode of the season was alright it was just not the closure I was looking for. The end of season 4 left such a void and depression with Rita dying. Season 5 did little to nothing to bridge the gap of Dexter without Rita.

Therefore, I will convince myself that Dexter season 5 never happened. He never met that bitch, Lumen, or got tangled up in anything in that crazy, stupid season.

Here’s what I’m going to convince myself happened during the very end of season 4 to now:

  1. Rita didn’t die. Rita got tired of Dexter’s sneaking around and his not being a proper father to the kids.
  2. Rita decides to leave Dexter and take Astor and Cody (of whom we’ll probably never see again). She decides to let Dexter have Harrison in order for him to become a better father. Maybe she saw something evil in him?
  3. Dexter sells the house and moves back into his apartment.

Oh, and here’s a prediction that I’ve been saying all summer: Deb will find out about Dexter this season. There are subtle clues hidden among the previews that make me point to this happening.

Let’s hope it’s a great season. Yay! Dexter’s back!

Why Season 5 Of Dexter Sucks

I’ve been out of it for a few weeks since the election. It really hit me hard. An overwhelming sense of depression, helplessness, and hopelessness for our country. I haven’t tweeted or done anything social networky in weeks.

I wanted to blog about this before last week, but I was hoping last weeks episode of Dexter could have changed how I felt about the show. It didn’t really, despite the two somewhat shockers.

This season of Dexter has just sucked. I kept searching for Dexter in the news and found an article today, finally, verifying that there WILL BE a sixth season. I have mixed feelings about that considering how crappy this season has been, but it’s good to know that the stupid cop guy (the one who Quinn hired) will probably not be the one to take Dexter down.

So I’ve compiled a list of why this season sucks:

  • No personal relationship with the villain(s) – In season 1, it was Dexter’s bro which we found out at the end. In season 2, it was Dexter himself. In season 4, it was Trinity of whom we had a known relationship from the start. Maybe we’ll know more about the Jordan Chase people, but there’s only four episodes left…
  • No twists or shockers – With the exception of the last episode (a tiny bit).
  • No character building – Are we just learning about Lumen the whole time?
  • Little emotion shown by Dexter – At least the first episode there was sort of emotion. I did like when he covered Lumen’s ears though last episode.
  • Little Harry involvement – I can’t remember the last time Dexter talked to Harry. He doesn’t even have flashbacks or anything. At first I didn’t like the Harry/Dexter talking, but now it’s an important part of the show.
  • Little time’s going by – So I guess we’re only like a month after Rita’s death? Shouldn’t Dexter still be grieving? Shouldn’t anyone still be grieving?
  • No one knows Dexter’s secret – Strike that now. Lumen knows but it wasn’t a shocker.
  • No cliffhangers – I hate cliffhangers to begin with, but this season has nothing. Maybe with the exception of last episode. There’s been nothing that makes me want to scream or tweet. Not Dexter like at all if you’ve seen any episode.
  • Previews don’t make me want to tune in – Seriously, I’m not thrilled like I was last season with previews. They don’t show anything that really make me want to watch or get me on the edge of my seat or wanting it to be Sunday even when it’s Friday night.
  • Julia Stiles takes away – Is it just me or does her acting suck? She was so good in10 Things I Hate About You.
  • Little problems get solved right away – Like with Laguerta’s money… solved by the end of the episode. Nothing’s lingering or coming back to haunt anyone.
  • No explanation of little things that matter – Like the dude Dexter killed in the first episode… what happened with that? Did he really clean up the body, clean up the blood, shower, change clothes, and get to the funeral that quickly? I still don’t understand why Paul’s parents (let alone anyone) weren’t at Paul’s funeral in season 2.
  • A nobody has gotten closer to Dexters secret than anyone else – Even Doakes didn’t get THAT close. Who the hell is this character of whom we know nothing about and who has nothing to do with any of the other characters. That blows.

Quote From Bill Maher III

I probably have better things to blog about like the email I just got and had to reply and debunk, but Bill Maher had a rant which I felt needs to be said more (though not verbatim). He was talking about Virginia Thomas and that whole message thing, but it morphed into talking about Citizens United.

Because of the Supreme Court decision last year, which her husband ruled on, which basically negated McCain Feingold, in all this secret money in checks they say up to twenty million dollars from hedge fund managers, from fat cats; and people don’t know where it’s coming from. It’s coming into this election. This is a giant scandal which of course people don’t care about anymore than they care about Darfur because it’s not on Dancing With The Stars.

The Tea Party likes to coin the phrase “Wake Up America”, I think it’s true. But America needs to actually wake up to the corruption and propaganda and anything else they actually believe from an email, Fox News, or from a 30 second commercial. They need to stop watching their reality TV and get back to their actual reality and fact check and do research into their candidates before blindly voting. There’s so much unchecked money going into this election, and it’s not going to stop. Republican candidates don’t even care who’s putting up propaganda to attack their opponent, just so long as they win.

To try to encourage more turn out at the polls next week, I’ll be blogging my long list of achievements Obama and this Democratic controlled Congress has had over the past two years. They have been the most productive Congress since the 1960’s.

Done With VHS

I wanted to watch one of the movies I had on VHS the other night. It turns out my VCR I had since I was like 14 had died. I’m not 100% sure it was the VCR but it’s not like I can go buy a new one.

In light of this I have decided my VHS days are over. I have quite a few movies on VHS I have to rebuy on DVD. I hate that. One of the reasons I don’t want to buy a blu ray player. It’s pretty not cool that we have to keep buying the same movie over and over because they switch formats. I’m glad one format won in the blu ray vs HD war.

Anyway, here’s a list of all the movies I had on VHS. I’ll probably try to sell all of them for like $20 on craigslist or something this next week.

  • Star Wars Trilogy (originals, episodes 4-6)
  • Star Wars Trilogy (digitally remastered, special edition, episodes 4-6)
  • Planet Of The Apes (old, all movies, movies 1-5)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (old, all movies, movies 1-3)
  • Indiana Jones, Raiders Of The Lost Ark
  • Indiana Jones, The Last Crusade
  • Isn’t She Great
  • Niles Loves Daphne (a tape I made with all the great moments of Frasier and Niles & Daphne)
  • mini tape to VHS adapter (for my old camcorder)
  • a head cleaner (LOL, remember those?)
  • Not Another Teen Movie
  • Drowning Mona (the movie I wanted to watch)
  • Jurassic Park
  • Fatal Attraction
  • Ordinary Decent Criminal
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Big Business
  • Clue (already bought DVD)
  • Bad Company
  • Dick
  • Mr. Holland’s Opus
  • Fried Green Tomatoes
  • 9 To 5
  • Driving Miss Daisy
  • The X Files (movie, first one)
  • South Park Bigger, Longer, & Uncut
  • Junior
  • What Lies Beneath
  • Presumed Innocent
  • Austin Powers (first one)
  • X Men (first one)
  • Last Action Hero
  • The Sting
  • Grumpy Old Men (first one)

Ahh, VHS. You were so good to me. I don’t have any way to record shows now… not like I have done it in years. On Demand has covered me in that department. We don’t have TiVo or DVR or whatever. But, I guess I won’t miss you.

Verizon FiOS Destruction

That Comcast commercial is completely true. FiOS really does do a lot of destruction when installing their crappy service. I blogged about this when I got FiOS installed.

A bunch of friends and I were up for a movie the other weekend but FiOS OnDemand was down. This was at like 11:00 PM on a Saturday night. Like prime time for watching a movie. We called them up and they said they were doing maintenance… on a Saturday night. FAIL.

Our HD box has also been finiky. It’s pretty slow. You have to be very delicate when choosing menu options. For instance, I can’t go down to Recently Viewed stuff or else it will freeze. If I want to see something I stopped earlier, I have to navigate back to where I found it. FAIL.

Anyway, the main reason I’m blogging is because FiOS totally screws up the streets. I saw their van a few months ago installing their crappy service on Broadwood Drive in Rockville (a street that I commute on). They had to navigate traffic around their crappy little cones in order to drill the street to lay their crappy wiring. I should have called then but I thought they’d actually clean up their mess.

When I take my scooter on this road, there are bumps everywhere and uneven pavement. There’s even a place really bad where I have to completely slow down. It’s like a reverse speed bump. The scooter doesn’t like it. Neither does the Camaro.

So I finally thought about calling them the other day. I thought they were going to hang up on me but surprisingly, they created a ticket for it. I had to give them all my Verizon account information. Not sure why they needed that but whatever.

They called me back the next day and basically said it wasn’t their problem. The city of Rockville had to fix it even though they were the ones who installed it! My tax dollars going to another greedy corporation for stuff that THEY’RE responsible for fixing. It’s like the oil rig explosion in the golf… except this is 2,398,438 times worse… just kidding.

Quickie Quote From Bill Maher II

Bill Maher said something last week that was 100% true. Too long for twitter…

“You ever watch House or Gray’s Anatomy? It’s like ten or twelve doctors for just you. All they do is treat you and then they go home and fuck each other and think about you. That’s the fantasy.”

Makes a strong case for watching Nurse Jackie instead of House.

Random Thoughts 2/1/10

  • This one probably deserves a post in and of itself. Bri and I are looking to expand our family. We want to adopt another dog but we’re running into a lot of difficulties. We can’t adopt a puppy from a shelter because one of us needs to be stay at home. You’d think with the economy being bad and a lot of unwanted animals, they’d be lenient.
  • Bill Maher blogged if Democrats really wanted to pass health care, they should be against it. Makes sense and I agree. Republicans are the party of no and the opposite of everything the Democrats are for.
  • I’m almost done three of my 2010 Resolutions.
  • Re Big Love: If Bill would embrace the Progressive idea of Universal Health Care, he wouldn’t have to worry about his wives/children being dropped from his family coverage. But he’s running as a Republican (and Right Wing Christian) and we know their views.
  • I think the iPad is a joke and will fail regardless of Apple’s following. It doesn’t do anything new.
  • I REALLY hope the economy rebounds soon. I’m tired of it day after day and it’s really hurting me, even though I have a job, believe it or not.
  • I have a few money making ideas. I’m waiting for a few things in order to get started.
  • I’m REALLY scared for our country if we can’t get the recent Supreme Court decision undone. Alan Grayson is leading the charge in introducing two new bills to try to stop it, and an online petition. This issue should be bipartisan and Obama was correct in bashing the Justices in his State Of The Union.
  • Also, it’s a relief that Scott Roeder was convicted. It had me REALLY scared that in our country we might be crazy enough to let off a murderer.

Quickie Quote From Bill Maher I

Bill Maher was on the Jay Leno Show last night and said a pretty funny thing. It’s too long for Twitter or else I’d tweet it.

“If you’ve voted for a guy who wouldn’t give you health care, as opposed to one who would, you should have your head examined… Except you can’t afford to have your head examined because you don’t have health care.”

Just thought I’d share it.

Successful Government Programs

As some of you may have watched, Rush Limbaugh was on the Jay Leno show last night, talking nothing but trash. Leno got in there a few times to correct Rush on a few of his “misunderstandings”. Most of what he said, of course, were lies. I debunked a few as he was saying them on my twitter.

The one lie I loved the best was him claiming that there are no successful government run programs. I desperately wanted to tweet but, come on, my list would be well over the 140 character limit Twitter has.

I decided just to blog about it quickly here and list a few successful government programs. Some of these everyone uses in their day to day lives, without even realizing it:

Federal Highway Administration
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
Environmental Protection Agency
Tennessee Valley Authority
National Park Service
National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA)
Social Security
Family & Medical Leave Act
National Weather Service
Consumer Product Safety Commission
Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
Government Grants
Food & Drug Administration
Americans with Disabilities Act
Servicemen’s Readjustment Act (GI bill)
Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act (another GI bill)
Peace Corps
European Recovery Program (Marshall Plan)
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS or cash for clunkers)
Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act
Public Broadcasting
Public Schools & Universities
Public Transportation (it has a lot of faults but a lot of people need it to get around)
Public Libraries
Fire Department
Workers’ Compensation (ex Sate Compensation Insurance Fund of California)
Rural Utilities Service
Federal Aviation Administration
Community Development Block Grant
Housing & Urban Development (HUD)

It turns out there are a lot of successful government run programs, making this list rather incomplete.

How Am I Going To Watch Everything?

So football is back, as you know. I’m already in. The problem is now that shows are starting to come back. My week is like packed.

10:00AM – 11:30AM I try to catch The Chris Matthews Show and Meet The Press. It usually doesn’t turn out that way, though.
12:00PM – 11:00PM I watch all the football games I could possibly watch.
9:00PM – 10:00PM is Dexter… I’m going to have to watch it on demand or try to catch it another time. I can’t sacrifice football… I might miss something.
10:00PM – 11:00PM is the rerun of Realtime. I usually miss the live show on Friday cause Friday night I’m always doing something.

8:00PM – 11:00PM MNF. No way around it (unless the Suckles play).
9:00PM – 10:00PM House. Going to have to miss it to watch MNF.


9:00PM – 10:00PM Law & Order SVU.

9:00PM – 10:00PM Fringe.

Always hang out with buddies.

Usually at Dad’s working… but it could be soon I won’t have to!

Monday – Friday
5:00PM – 6:00PM is Hardball… This show is the only show I watch religiously because it’s so nice. Just get home and put it on.
8:00PM – 9:00PM is Countdown.
9:00PM – 10:00PM is Rachel.
10:00PM – whenever is Leno.

Lots of quality programming available. I guess I’ll have to squeeze stuff in somehow. Or do what I usually do and watch KO and Rachel at work on msnbc.com . I can catch Dexter and Realtime on demand. I always rearrange stuff to hang out with peeps anyway… TV isn’t that important. I just wanted to list out all my TV stuff I would like to watch.

Verizon FiOS Ordeal

So Bri and I recently moved to an area that is FiOS ready. To those who haven’t heard of FiOS, it’s supposed to be the bomb as far as internet, phone, and TV go.

Bri and I wanted to keep the same number we had at the apartment. That required us to wait two weeks before Verizon installing it, so they can port the number. Also, it required us to keep our Comcast account active (even though we couldn’t watch TV, Internet, etc). We made an appointment with Verizon and they were scheduled to come out on a Friday. Brian took the day off to get it installed, along with Brinks.

Verizon never showed up. Nor did they call to tell us they weren’t showing up. Supposedly, there was an error in their system saying we couldn’t get FiOS. Come to find out, they also could not port over our number, which they claimed they could do. Hours on the phone later, we set up a new appointment. And, no, they couldn’t pull some strings and get dispatch out there early for us, nor could they install it on the weekend or on Monday.

We now had an appointment for Wednesday between the hours of 8 and 5. I didn’t want to take the day off because leave is very important, and I have to save it for Dad stuff. I bribed one of my friends to come up and spend the day waiting for Verizon.

They showed up, I guess, around 1PM and proceeded to install FiOS. I get a text saying it would cost $55 per TV to run wire so we can have cable. The house CAME wired with Coax. According to the techs who were installing it, it wasn’t Coax, but a thicker wire. Whatever, Bri and I weren’t home so we couldn’t tell.

When I got home, I let them do their thing, thinking they are professionals and wouldn’t mess anything up. Was I wrong. When the guys left, Bri and I walked around the house to see what they had done. They had CUT our wire to our current Coax system. Not only that, they INSTALLED Coax! The very thing we had wired throughout the house!

Brian called Verizon (yet again). They are supposed to call him back sometime today. We are NOT paying for the Coax installation which we already had. It’s been ridiculous. If they say we still have to pay, we’re probably going to take them to small claims court or something. We can also, hopefully, get the dudes in trouble who installed the stuff. They did a horrible job anyway. They even left their twisty ties on the floor so my cats can choke on them. Nice, right?

Needless to say, I laugh every time I get off the phone with these assholes and they say “recommend us to family and friends”… Yeah, right.

My opinion so far, I watched around 3 hours of TV. Picture is fine. HD is fine. More HD channels than Comcast. Internet is very fast. Honestly, it’s the same as Comcast. I see no real difference. It is NOT the bomb like it’s made out to be.

Bottom line, don’t get Verizon. They’re jerks. I’ll update later about how it all turns out.

Subliminal Message In House

How cool is this?

House season 4 finale Vote For Change sticker

On the House season finale, I saw this. Vote For Change!
