    My father-in-law is a security consultant for a very well known worldwide agency and he recommends that I hire a body guard for the first several weeks of iPhone 4 ownership.

    Also, I've been told that the Fed-Ex plane en route to the U.S. will be escorted by heavily armed Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche Stealth Helicopters. Steve what's his buckets has personally asked for these helicopters himself.

    These are the most sophisticated helicopters on the planet. Normally they are painted black or white. I've been told that there won't be any white birds available for this mission though. Wow, that's really freaky. Anyone see a pattern here? The Illuminati periodically reveals itself and I think that's what were seeing with this version of the iPhone launch. It's a little scary.

    Yup, I plan on spending thousands of dollars to hire a body guard for a few weeks to protect me from losing my $300 cell phone. Good thinking.

    Ps. I don't think I would ever trust a security consultant who recommends a body guard over a cell phone. I don't expect him to be consulting for long.

    You never know with some people on here. Also, normally people would use some kind of smiley or something to show they are being sarcastic. Sorry I'm not an expert at detecting e-sarcasm. Maybe you could teach me?

    Maybe if people stopped creating pointless threads we wouldn't have this problem.

    i honestly struggle to understand how you didn't get the joke.

    a sarcasm/humour course should be mandatory before you join the internet, else new internet users will end up looking like this guy, mr. serious pants.

    Don't say that because you'll get flamed by people who joined this forum a week ago so they think it's normal for threads like these to be here.

    LOL.. reminds me of "The Onion"

    To defend those who missed the sarcasm and snapped at the OP..

    There HAS been an abundance of ridiculous threads lately and caused an otherwise intelligent board to get downright silly. And not a good silly.

    Once the crowned jewel has been unclothed I suspect the threads to return to their once revered status. Though Im sure we will see plenty of

    "WHERE THE HECK IS MY NEW IPHONE" threads

    I'm not entirely sure if the helicopters supporting a freight jetliner to the us helped or hurt the joke.
    I have flown halfway across the country crewing a black hawk and compared to a Fedex cargo jet it was more like a 20 hour car ride stopping for fuel, eating, resting, and slow.
    Raptors would have been cooler :p
    Long range, higher altitude, faster and less risky inflight refueling.

    Does anyone care to tell me why my post in this thread was deleted? All I said was "I lol'd". I got that it was a joke and I don't think it was rude or anything....

    Unless, it wasn't a joke? I noticed a couple other posts were removed as well.

    I think that the "escorted by heavily armed Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche Stealth Helicopters" part just might have been a tip off. ;)

    Saying that will get your post deleted around here. I speak from experience.

    I've already made my tin foil hat...

    And when the black helicopters come to snatch my prized iPhone 4 out of my hot little hands, I will knock them out with my secret death ray.

    Well, when they are running full on into sarcasm without a smiley we tend to give them a gentle push.

    I don't understand mods sometimes. They'll delete a "I lol'd" comment but they won't manage all of the multiple useless threads all asking the same questions.

    better luck next time champ.
