Fail Differently

Here’s to the zany ones. The slim fits. The devils. The upgraders. The ones who put flat phones in curved pockets. The ones who want a working cellular radio. They’re not fond of returns. And they have no respect for being told it’s their fault. You can hang up on them, quote policy to them, put them on hold or disconnect them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they take their money elsewhere. They switch to Android. And while some may see them as market churn, we see market share. Because the people who are crazy enough who want phones that work, are the ones who will get them.

Apple. Fail differently.

A Conspiracy Theory

A Tinfoil Hat

And stop worshiping Jesse Ventura!

I think I’ve nailed down 10 words/phrases that instantly make you look like a lunatic conspiracy theorist. Use any of them to instantly invalidate any argument you make. Find another way to phrase what you mean, folks are conditioned to tune out those who use these phrases.

1) One World Government
2) New World Order
3) Martial Law
4) RFID implants
5) Sheeple
6) Illuminati
7) Chemtrails
8) Fluoride (Unless you’re a dentist)
9) FEMA Death Camps
10) 9/11

Bonus Phrase!

11) Sovereign Citizen. You know the kind, the person brays on to the police/judge that laws don’t apply to him because he’s a so-called “sovereign citizen”

By the way folks, NFC (like in your debit card) is not RFID. Nobody can read them from 3 feet away. You don’t need a metal wallet. You have to be within 3 centimeters of the card, and oriented just right, to read it. Get a normal wallet, you look ridiculous.
