Talking about the Howard Stern effect doesn't mean I despise it. It just means I'm capable of seeing it:

Researcher: The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes a day. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes.
Kenny: How could this be?
Researcher: Answer most commonly given: "I want to see what he'll say next."
Kenny: : All right, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?
Researcher: Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day.
Kenny: : But... if they hate him, why do they listen?
Researcher: Most common answer: "I want to see what he'll say next."

Now pretend it says Donald Trump instead of Howard Stern.

Yup. Hence the free billions in media coverage. Whoever put their strategy together was honestly genius. Everyone hates me when I say it, I’m not saying I like or dislike trump, but the execution of his campaign was pure genius.

Well that and how the DNC with Hillary had the media concentrating on Trump only and ignoring the other R candidates because they thought Trump was the candidate she could win against. It’s just horribly backfired on them. And rightly so.

level 7

also the party where they stole the primary from Bernie

level 8

It's insane how many people voted for Trump after Bernie was cheated. I've talked to a bunch of people online who voted Trump just because they were so angry with the DNC for fucking Bernie over.

level 9

Yeah, I know some people personally who did, because they figured the election was already decided.

Now, because i dont live in a swing state, it would've taken a lot more than the people I know to even begin to have an impact, but that's the glory of the electoral college.

"They are not "news channels" anymore; they are "Trump channels". CNN, Fox news, MSNBC... all of them. One is for Trump, the other is against Trump, another is about Trump, but they are all "Trump channels". All Trump all the time, 24/7".

The flaw with this logic is simple. Howard Stern is on one station, when I don't want to listen to him I can change the channel and still have hundreds more to choose from. When I don't want to hear from Trump I have to turn off every device, coworker, family member and friend. I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm just running out of places to hide the bodies.

i really like using /r/all. it's nice to see what's popular in all of the subreddits, and it's always fun to see when big news hits a niche community.

i've filtered the pro and anti trump subs, and the other masturbatory outrage subs as i identify them; kotakuinaction, pussypassdenied, gamersriseup, wewantplates, etc. it's pretty nice.

Ask them whwre they are. One of two things will happen:

  2. The police arrive, and you're in trouble but somewhere in the case, the playground's location will become known to you so it's worth it in the end

555? You don't have to be a dick about it. If you don't want to get together, just say so.

level 3
102 points · 12 days ago · edited 11 days ago

For the unknowing, 555- numbers are disabled everywhere in the world. They were initially created for the use in movies for example.

So if someone asks for your phone number, and you want that person to know that you don't actually want to give them. use a 555-sum-ting to moderately troll them.

Edit: Ok guys, don't need to keep correcting me one after the other. This was meant to be a simple answer that covers it mostly for the average folk. I get it, some of you know more specifics on the matter but you're being redundant now.

They're disabled in the US. I'm not aware of another country where numbers with 555 are disabled. But then again, the system varies from country to country.

Reading your edit I just want to say: There are people living in other places than the US and for us a correcting comment stating that this won't work in our countries is actually pretty helpful. Also, I think we count as "the average folk". No reason to get mad at the commenters.

Ehhhh some U.S. numbers that have prefixes like 800-555-xxxx could be real numbers. They aren't strictly disabled but there aren't many of them that are active either.
