Verizon offering 4G smartphone owners doubled
data caps through the life of their phone

To tie in with the upcoming Droid RAZR launch, Verizon's going to offer both new and existing smartphone

customers double the usual data allotment for the same price. As of tomorrow, $30 will get you 4GB instead of 2GB,

all the way up to a whopping 20GB for $80 a month. The best part of this deal? Once you sign up for the

upgraded data plan, you'll keep it for the life of your 4G smartphone — Verizon confirmed that there's a

limited time to sign up for the data plan, but not to use it.

Unfortunately for non-4G users, this will only apply to 4G smartphones — that means all those new iPhone 4S owners

will miss the deal. Verizon's also launching a new, less expensive data plan; $20 will buy you 300MB each month,

$5 more than AT&T's 200MB plan. The bottom line is that Verizon just substantially increased the amount of data you

get for your dollar through the holiday season... now, AT&T — care to respond?

Stealth is a Bastard

For those of you who like your stealthy games but can do without the 5 hours of Metal Gear soap opera 

cut scenes, I present to you Curve Studios' Stealth Bastard.  Stealth Bastard: (full name Stealth Bastard: 
Tactical Espionage Arsehole) is the bastard child of the aforementioned Metal Gear Solid and instant death 
explodey games like I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game (hopefully it's not nearly as difficult).  It's
straightforward 2D game-play has you hiding in the shadows, evading traps and trying not to get your ass
blasted to pieces by pissed off robots.  SB features a level editor that you can share with folks over the
Internet and on top of it all the game is FREE! The PC only game is available through stealthbastard.com.

Brett Ratner is an Idiot.

During a post-'Tower Heist' Q&A session on Friday night in Los Angeles, director Brett Ratner said "rehearsing is for fags"
when asked by an audience member if he rehearses scenes before filming. So, yeah, that's not good.

Ratner has since apologized for his comments in a statement to The Wrap:

 

I apologize for any offense my remarks caused. It was a dumb way of expressing myself. Everyone who knows me knows that

I don't have a prejudiced bone in my body. But as a storyteller I should have been much more thoughtful about the power of

language and my choice of words.

 

He is a producer for the Oscar's. As far as I am concerned he should soon be a former producer for the Oscar's. Say you are sorry all you want. Forrest Gump's mom said it best.

"Stupid is as Stupid does."

Pa. man picked fight with grandma's dog

 




A western Pennsylvania man has been cited for animal cruelty
 and other crimes because police say he tried to pick a fight with his grandmother's 15-year-old dog.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 21-year-old Nicholas Wooddell,

of Hopewell Township, who was briefly jailed Sunday after the incident.

 

The Beaver County Times (http://bit.ly/sRRSHU ) say the incident occurred Oct. 10

when Wooddell pounded on the woman's door to get inside.

Once there, police say Wooddell punched the dog which was lying on the floor and left.

Police say Wooddell had recently been staying at his grandmother's home but was asked to leave.

Wooddell does not have a listed phone.

 

A relative's phone could not take incoming calls when

The Associated Press tried to located Wooddell for comment Monday morning.

 

 

Disgruntled customer urinated in bank tube


WESH.com

Authorities have identified and charged a 67-year-old man they say

urinated in a bank tube after he couldn't get a money order.

The suspects name has not yet been released.

 

Investigators said another customer unknowingly picked up the bank tube

and was then covered in the liquid, which they believe was urine.

A man pulled into the drive-up teller at the RBC Bank in Palm Coast on Thursday,

deputies said, and urinated in a tube when a policy upset him.

The customer behind him had no idea what he had done.

 

"It's a disgusting act that nobody should have to go through.

You go to the bank to make a deposit or withdraw.

Nobody should have to go through this,"

said Maj. Dave O'Brien with the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.

 

Investigators said they knew who the man was because he's an RBC customer

and may have done the same thing once before at a branch in Port Orange.

Flagler County authorities have charged the man with creating a public nuisance.

Once the paperwork is filed, he could face arrest and a year in jail.

The bank's manager says the branch closed down the suspect's account and gave him all of his money back.

Naughty veggies, anyone?

This gives new meaning to veggie wedgies.

Kitchen workers at the Morton's of Chicago steakhouse in Boca Raton are accused of sticking raw vegetables

in their undies before serving them to their customers, the website Jose Lambiet's GossipExtra.com reported,

according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

A sous-chef claimed in his harassment suit he saw a colleague at the restaurant "place stalks of asparagus

inside his underwear, next to his anal/genital area in order to simulate his penis," then "serve that asparagus

to Morton's unsuspecting paying customers."
