I cut the cable TV cord over three years ago. It's the biggest waste of money ever! OTA antenna FTW!

I tend to think once you kill the son then you've won.  But that's just me.

SON, Y U NO BUY ME CABLE TV?!?!   chic-kik BANG!

Subby read fail. They had no cable and no bill.

after the son refused to pay to install cable television.
 The suspect's pastor told police that the son had said that the father could move out if he was angry about not having cable.

OTA and whatever Netflix, Hulu, and the wilds of the internets have for me.

The Dirctv salespeople are unusually pushy. I wish costco would make them leave.

It's ok. It's not the father's fault he didn't know that the afterlife martial arts tournament of DragonBall Z isn't real.  So his son won't be waiting for round 2.

Unless Bruce Lee decided to create one while we're still here alive.   Nobody says no to Bruce.

Some people live to argue.  And then there are some who go that extra step.

This.  I've done the same.

Also because the cable/satellite boxes are slow to load channels (or channel guide, or menu, or pretty much everything) and have horrible UI.  Why would I pay more for a worse experience?  especially when i can get everything i want to watch ala-carte online. (via amazon instant, or apple, or the many VOD services)

I guess there are were still true Vikings alive. It takes commitment to kill someone in battle and then bet you both get access to Valhalla just to keep on fighting.

I've had no issue with them. Then again, as soon as they start their sales pitch, I say "I get my TV programming over the air with a Mohu Leaf. Can you get me a better price?"

Never had one try and sell me after that.

When dad wants to watch reruns of the Golden Girls, you better get him cable.

I told the last one I cut the cord, and he looked around and told me quietly that he had too.

They are crazy aggressive. They don't take a polite "No, thank you." for an answer so you're left with awkwardly ignoring them as you walk by. I had one follow me through Best Buy, start talking to me about video games and then try to sell me TV service. Weird high pressure sales tactics. Had the same type of experience with an AT&T U-Verse sales guy that was prowling the neighborhood. Said he could get me more than I had with Charter for less money but wouldn't let me look at the channel listings and detail sheet, INSISTING that I had to sign up NOW. That's the mark of a great product.

There must be a hell of a commission on that stuff.

Can we kill the high-pressured commissioned sales staff and stab anti-vaxxers so we can have them battle each other in the afterlife.  (The arena, I presumed, will be fire-and-brimstoney)

As for Dad killing himself right after. . .gotta admire his dedication in following things through to the end.  Too bad he did not know there is no god.  Perhaps it will turn into a competition of who can push the most daisies.

FTA: The criminal complaint alleged that Vang admitted shooting his son, and stabbing himself because he "did not want to settle the issue in court. He would settle the dispute with his son when they reached the afterlife."

HOW F**KING BIG WAS THAT BILL?! :O

Or the knowledge that they are peddling an obsolete service, and must squeeze all the commissions they can now.

I'm getting ready to dump cable. The roomate dosent want me to and I told her I will transfer the bill over to her name and she can pay for it. Especially the movies she orders and forgets to tell me about.

You live in a area without hills, highway overpasses, electrical interference, in a house or other place where you can put up an antenna and that doesn't have steel or wire mesh in the walls, and you live close enough to the line-of-sight transmitter. Congratulations. Many of us don't.

You are correct sir! Getting 19 over-the-air channels as a result. :-)

Of course the walls wouldn't affect reception for an outdoor antenna(on a 30' mast) anyway.

That's real anger right there. Killing yourself so you can continue the fight in the afterlife.

/To bad there's no afterlife.

I hate those commercials and I hate parodies of it *looks at local radio station* but this is HILARIOUS, But they didn't have cable yet so ...

Again, someone is taking too many notes from movies.  Only in 7 Psychopaths, the psychopath who sliced his own throat didn't directly kill anyone.  He just harassed the guy to death.

I did pay for cable for the last couple years I lived with my parents, but it was so I could have cable.
