Just the most annoying noise ever.
OK, you’ve probably seen a few commemorative coins that are “clad ” in 14 milligrams of pure gold or 14 milligrams of pure silver. They generally sell for 10 to 30 dollars. So lets see how much the gold or silver is worth (as of January 2, 2011)
14 mg = 0.0004501 ounces
Price of gold = $1416.20 per ounce
0.0004501 x 1416.20 = 0.63743162
So that’s $0.64 worth of gold. Sixty-four cents.
Price of silver = $30.91 per ounce
0.0004501 x 30.91 = 0.013912591
So that’s less than 2¢ worth of silver. Two cents.
I don’t know how I missed this one, but hell yeah. Times sure have changed.
I’m not saying all the facts are correct – check the wiki page for it – but sometimes things just demand an intervention. Three thousand adverts per day? Actually, I’m guessing I’m down to five or ten given that I don’t really watch television or listen to the radio. And then there’s my baby, Adblock Plus. Battle technology with technology! Right now I run it with the “Myspace Junk Filters”, “Rickroll Blacklist”, “Malware Domains”, and “EasyPrivacy+EasyList+EasyElement”. I’m lovin’ it!
You can’t exchange insurance information with a tree! AARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHH!!!!
These commercials make me want to stick an icepick in my ears and claw out my eyes. I want to beat the monotone chanters with a blunt object until they SHUT UP! They are the absolute most annoying commercials on TV. And I pay Comcast way too much a month for my services already. The least they could do is spare me the pain and horror of seeing these over and over.
