That "Anything Else" commercial was awesome.

So to me, John Oliver just suddenly materialized. Which I know can't be right. Where'd he come from?
He's just skyrocketed.

The Daily Show. He's been around for quite some time. He had a highly successful fill-in stint recently for Jon Stewart when he took time off to go do his directorial debut, leaving the chair for Oliver to occupy until he came back. But Oliver was always great in the role of a reporter long before that. Very solid alumni from TDS that includes Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell. The rest as they say is.....history.

I found these survey results suprising in just about every way. To give up so much for cell coverage.

Gas prices are hitting an all time low around these parts.

Currently $1.78/gallon

I'm happy and will take it. We all know one day it will go back up.
I'm one of those who look at... I have more money to spend on other things. Which I would think, more consumer confidence, which stimulate growth.

It has been hovering around $2.70 - $2.80 for the past few weeks here. This may seem like a lot compared to what your currently paying, but this is a huge drop for us. The average for the past year here has been around $4.20. It's literally the reason why I walk more than I drive.

I haven't been paying attention.  I don't even think I've driven my car more than five minutes since before Christmas.  I need to take that tin can for a spin.

Are wallets becoming a thing of the past?

I say this because I just saw a "card" holder for men. It hit me. I haven't used money in forever. My wallet holds some cards an vital info like doctors card, insurance info and my card for strip joint of the month. Which reminds me, I need to renew.

I'm going to look into this. I've always tried to keep my wallet as thin as possible. I never use the inside sleeve.

Hmmmmmmm

F*ck, I hate living in a city that has been rated as one of the highest markets for gas in the US. As of 3 days ago when I last hit the gas station, we were still at $3 per. Sigh.
