If Verizon only made the 300/150 cheaper...

Dude that is crazy. What is the price for 150?

Well if you take away the TV combo price and the DVR Rental, about 140 a month.

Now before you go rich spoiled brat on me, consider the following. Back in Denver when all I had was Comcast, I was paying 130 (internet alone) just to barely crack 50mbps.

My upload on Verizon should be 75mbps.

You can get 75/30 for about ~80 a month.

300/150 is a little more than 200 dollars a month.

I just got the service upgraded today. Just testing out some things if I find improvements in some areas. If its not giving me the desired results I'll go back to the 75.

I want to try 300 for a day just to see...

Another day (mostly) wasted thanks to a migraine. And of course, it was over when it was too late in the evening to get anything worthwhile done. Bleh.

Dear Nike,

You are stupid. Why not have a continual supply of all the Air Jordan retro line available in many different colorways so I don't have to attempt to purchase one on ebay that could be a fake? Don't you want my money and everyone elses?

I would love to get either the Jordan 3 or the Spizike (red/white) but I cannot find them.

From the Anglican Low Churchman's guide to Solemn High Mass:

"It goes without saying that loyal churchmen do not allow their children to marry ritualists. Sometimes, however, two persons of a ritualist persuasion will marry each other. Such marriages are deeply unfortunate, since two ritualists who share a home will only confirm each other in their fanatical extremism. One shudders to think of the children produced by such a union, for whom even such horrors as Compline and the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin would be accepted as everyday occurrences.

When two ritualists make plans for their marriage, their first priority will be to organize an elaborate wedding ceremony; indeed, in many cases it may appear as though the marriage itself is a mere pretext to arrange this service. Ritualists are especially eager to hold such complicated weddings because marriage provides a pretext to trick their family members and social acquaintances into attending ritualist worship, as it were by stealth. It is not clear whether Ritualists view such wedding invitations as an opportunity to make converts to their cause or as a form of abuse; if the latter, they are notably successful. The loyal churchman, aware of such stratagems, will refuse all wedding invitations as a matter of course unless he has been assured that the ceremony will contain no ritualist elements.

The English church, in its infinite wisdom, has appointed a brief Office for the Solemnization of Matrimony, which if performed soberly and without such irrelevancies as processions or music can be concluded in twenty minutes without difficulty. There is no need to affix this nuptial office to any of the other services of divine worship, which are meant to be celebrated separately: that which the Prayer Book hath put asunder let no man rashly join together. Among Ritualists, however, the marriage service is not considered complete unless it is preceded by a Grand Procession with confraternity banners and followed by a Solemn High Mass, a Solemn Angelus with Benediction of St Ursula, a Te Deum, the Rededication of a Lightly Used Monstrance, the Conditional Rebaptism of the Oblates of the Sacred Heart of St Januarius, and the Requiem Dance of the Seven Virgins. By the time the bride and groom emerge from the cloud of incense in which the service had begun six hours earlier, they are typically greeted by an empty church, as all their guests are in an adjoining room being treated for smoke inhalation and heat exhaustion."

ayo I went to Finish Line, Champs, Foot Locker, etc to pick up some Jordans and wow their new stuff is garbage.

No retros, not even Spizikes. Terribly made stuff though.

When will Nike learn to actually screen print instead of using what feels like some kind of a harsh iron on print, when looking at their tshirts.

Over on NikeTalk there is this thread on taking care of them. Apparently you can make a sort of insole to protect the tip part of the shoe so creases do not come in on the leather.

Then they suggested buying 3 different kinds of Amour All.

Nhorm I should tell you the story of when I returned back sneakers after I used bleach on them to try to clean since I NP longer wanted them.

They not only took them back but I got two pairs and 20 bucks back.

But the guy totally smelled bleach and I played it off like I have no idea what you are talking about.
