Trading a lifetime of potential employment for a $90 membership. Not sure if this is such a good idea.

Netflix has demonstrated that they consider this individual to be worth one yearly membership ($96). I don't think they're going to be hiring him any time soon.

Someone should tell him about all the savings he could get with a Circuit City tattoo.

If I make myself a permanent advertisement for you, I'm not settling for anything less than a permanent paycheck.

Has anyone pointed out that the tat probably set him back $250 or more? If Netflix covered that AND gave him a free year, I might be impressed, but at $8/month, he's not getting a great ROI here...

ZeroCorpse: I don't even wear corporate logos on my clothes (no Gap, Nike, Adidas, Old Navy, Budweiser, Goodyear, et. al.) and I couldn't imagine being such a whore as to trade my dignity for a year of Netflix. This guy is cheap.


I'm the same way except for a few exceptions. There is only one logo that I wear because it is just part of the shoes I have. But it is a black logo on a black shoe so it is basically invisible. If I was more motivated, I would rip that logo off too, but it is pretty well sewn into the shoe.

Wearing logs as some identifier of one's "uniqueness" is just an example of the narcissism of small differences (wiki). If you do it and are not getting paid for it, then you are missing the point.

I don't go out of my way to buy clothes with logos on it, and I won't buy anything that's just blatant LOGO and nothing else.  But I'm also not going to go out of my way to rip them off.  I just don't care.  It works out pretty well. If the best product/price I can find happens to have a small logo on it, whatever.

I went to Home Depot the other day.

That is some flagrant false advertising. They do not sell homes there at all!

Yeah, I was going to make a comment regarding lots of people offering to give subby wood.


Gotta word that one carefully. Is it a year free of wood or a year of free wood, stud? Or a year of wood, free?

Redbox streams now too if you're a Verizon customer. For 8 bucks you can stream all the 60s and 70s movies you want. Old b movies too.

If I'm marking myself for life, I'd better get the product free for life, too. For starters. I'd also want a portion of their advertising budget to go to me. After all, with a corporation's tattoo on me, I'm a walking, talking billboard, right?

I feel the same about shirts with company logos on them. If I'm walking around advertising YOUR business, then you should be paying me instead of me having to pay for the shirt. Even if the shirt's free (which it damned well ought to be!) I would expect to be given at least as much money as the company would spend on an ad in the local newspaper. More if I actually talk positively about their product or service.

People are idiot whores who don't know when they're being used by the plutocrats.


Are you one of those guys that goes out of their way to tape over, pry off, or obscure any and every logo from products they own? Cuz that's annoying. Just put the damn shirt on already. Or why'd you spray paint all over a $2500 bicycle?

Bikes, cars, etc. are different. I don't mind the make, model, etc. on them. But I'm a person and my body isn't ad-space. I don't rip off logos so much as simply avoid them. I don't shop in places like Old Navy or Gap, and if I come across a second-hand shirt from them I'll pick the ones that don't have the company name printed all across the front. I don't tear logos off jeans, but that's because they're fairly small and nondescript. I don't wear trucker hats/ballcaps, because I'm not a mook.

Like I said: If they want me to advertise their company for them when I walk around in public, then not only should the shirt be gratis, but I should get paid for the job. The same thing would cost them thousands of dollars if it were in a magazine, newspaper, or on TV. Why should I have less respect for my body than I do for magazines, newspapers, and television?

Bikes, cars, etc. are different.


I should add: I do rip the dealership logos off of cars that I purchase. There's no reason I should be paying through the nose for the vehicle AND advertising the dealership everywhere I drive. If they want me to keep their dealership decal and license plate frame on my car, they can give me the car for half price or better.

Carth: big pig peaches: Netflix streaming service: All the movIes from the nineties you could ever watch.

House of Cards is up there with Breaking Bad,  Mad Men and Game of Thrones as some of the best television out there.


I assume you mean the original british house of cards. Because I'm 8 episodes into the Kevin Spacey version and it's prime-grade stupid and makes no sense.

I'm pretty sure they just took the british script, search-and-replaced every "parliament" with "congress" and started filming without really thinking about how American government works:

Why are Congressmen picking who's going to be the governor of Pennsylvania?
Why are congressmen running the gubernatorial campaign?
Why was the VP pissed that he wasn't consulted on who was going to run for governor? Like what does the VP have to do with picking who runs for governor?
Why was a congressman the point-person to negotiate during a nationwide(!) teachers' strike?
How did Kevin Spacey get to be the only manipulative self-promoting person in Congress? Is everyone else there completely oblivious?
Did you realize that Kevin Spacey's character is married to Princess Buttercup? INCONCEIVABLE!

I'm pretty sure they just took the british script, search-and-replaced every "parliament" with "congress" and started filming without really thinking about how American government works:

1.Why are Congressmen picking who's going to be the governor of Pennsylvania?
2.Why are congressmen running the gubernatorial campaign?
3.Why was the VP pissed that he wasn't consulted on who was going to run for governor? Like what does the VP have to do with picking who runs for governor?

1. The organization is based on the DLC or DNC election committee where a few party leaders decide who the party will support in competitive races. As majority whip it isn't surprising he would have a huge say in who is selected to run for an open race; particularly if a democratic president values his opinion as much as the president in the show.

2. He isn't running the campaign, that is the female staffer, he is running the congressman. He is doing it because he needs to use him.

3. The VP was the former governor of PA and left the position to be VP. He is upset because no one in the DNC asked who should run for his old job.

5. He isn't the only one. He is just the protagonist so you see him the most.

6. I didn't know that. I also can't figure out why his why she bought such a crappy rowing machine instead of a concept 2.
