    I use I Heart Radio to listen to coast to coast, drowns out the -70 freezer I guess. Anyhow, they must have lots of extra ad space to use and run the .gov ads. I swear, they all say “in times like these” “in times like these” “in times like these” “in times like these”.

    I’m going to go freakin’ crazy.

    I suppose they'll only have a couple of ads, essentially saying the same thing, and will just keep replaying them.

    To be fair, you can't expect them to go to the expense of producing loads of unique ads in times like these...

    $50 to the next person who goes to I Heart Radio and requests 'Times Like These' by the Foo Fighters and dedicates it to Full of Win. :p :D

    If I hear "socialism" one more time from those who don't understand what the hell they're talking about...


    P.S. :D <-

    Yes, yes, yes. I'm pretty sure 99.999% of the people who throw around that word as of late don't even know what it means.

    Socialism is a huge threat in times like these, mainly because people take no personal responsibility any more.



    :D

    I agree with my esteemed colleague Mr. Cake. In these tough economic times, we all have to be a little more careful how we spend our advertising dollars. Cliches are economical.

    Technically two steps since I posted it (albeit more subtly in a smiley) in post number 6.

    All your thunders are belong to me... and maybe bradl, since he mentioned the song first. :p

    Well, darn... I get nothing now! Not even the drizzle after the thunder.

    So, I should revise my post to "+1"

    Yeah, I see your point... but we need proof, in times like these.
