FTA: However, we have listened carefully to our customers accountants and have determined that adult video-on-demand entertainment is not in keeping with our company's vision and goals moving forward. no longer profitable as it was before the Internet was widely available, and thus is not worth the hassle

Fixed that for them

thornhill: BMFPitt: That's what tethering and Chromecasts are for.

Can you get a Chromecast on the hotels network if you have to go through a splash screen to get the WiFi to work?


It's not pretty but you can do it with a $20 travel router, easiest if you have a wired connection in the room, if wired is not an option you can bridge the wifi from your laptop to the wired port on your laptop and get it to the router that way.  All could be for naught though if the hotel disables the HDMI ports on the TV, or it is too damn close to the wall and doesn't move so you can't get the damn thing plugged in.

/travel a lot for work.

Mugato: While I'm hardly the bastion of dignity, I can't think of anything more pathetic than watching porn while sitting in a nice hotel room on vacation. I guess unless you're married and alone on a business trip or something.

Anyway, the maids are probably grateful.


Oh, I can get way more pathetic than that. Calling the front desk because your porn order doesn't work, for starters.

Seems like a lot of work unless you're going to be living out of the hotel room.

I'm surprised that none of the major hotel chains haven't just negotiated a deal to put Netflix into every room, and then charge people a few dollars a day to access it. I mean, I can't believe that they still make much money from PPV.

And, I'd think Netflix would be willing to cut hotels a very low rate because this would be a great marketing opportunity for them.

thornhill: I can't remember the last time I turned on a TV in a hotel. I always just stream stuff on my iPad, like PBS Masterpiece Theater.



I turn it on for local weather while I'm going back and forth to bathroom, luggage, etc.  Or to do automated check out.

I can think of something more pathetic. I used to work at a large chain record store, and we had a porn rental section. I remember working on Christmas day once, and being horrified at how many dudes came in to rent VHS porn from us on Christmas day.

I vowed that day to eat a bullet if I ever realized I was renting porn on Xmas.

Years ago, I went to a strip club for a bachelor party in the month of December. The club was hyping their upcoming holiday party, which would feature decorations, a buffet, and all of their dancers on one night. I couldn't help but think that the grizzled club regulars would surely be in attendance, this possibly being the only holiday celebration that they'll have with other people.

Now if that doesn't make you want to eat a bullet, what will?


When your wife, who makes twice what you make, has an affair and decides that you need to move out of the house you've shared for 16 years, and to leave the two kids when you were always the primary caregiver, while insisting that you "pay your fair share".

Happened to a neighbor of mine.  Though technically he didn't "eat the bullet", because he shot himself in the lung.  With a .22 Short.  Good thing he wasn't a "gun guy", he had to borrow the gun*.  Oh, and he was always kind of anti-gun in the first place.

*Not from me.  I don't lend guns, not unless I'm there the whole time.

You are aware that not everyone celebrates Christmas right?

Hell, now that my kids are all grown and moved away it's just another day of the week to me.
