BOA to Charge Debit Card Fees

I canceled my Bank of America account years ago, but for those of you who still have one you might want to consider canceling it now.

BOA has recently announced that they will start charging a $5.00 debit card fee. This is most likely due to their poor management decisions around the housing bubble and debt associated with it. It is also most likely because they can charge it. They are a massive bank with a large customer base.

The Problem with Vegetarianism

Image
Here is the problem with being a vegetarian as is see it. It isn't the fact that you have a harder time finding meals at places, or that you pay the same price for a meal of vegetables as someone pays for a meal with meat. The problem is feeling like a complete tool when you order a vegetarian option.

I went down to the local sub shop for lunch today and because I spend so much time at bars eating bar food, I decided to order the vegetarian sub. And for some reason I couldn't help feeling like a complete ass as I ordered it. Like the, "Oh I'm so special that I don't eat meat," attitude that vegetarians have. And I think that's really where the problem sits. Most vegetarians are snobby assholes about it. Now don't start leaving comments that you aren't a snobby asshole vegetarian, I said most not all. But most actually are snobby tools that think they are better than everyone else and they look down on people who eat meat, as if they are better t…

The 4 Crazy Stages of Women

Image
After many years of field study, conversations with others, both male and female, I've come to a conclusion that all women are some sort of crazy.

Stage 1: Nuts
This unfortunately is the smallest percentage of women and if you can find a woman who is just nuts, marry her. She might get a little emotional sometimes, but everyone does that at points. And that's more or less all you will have to deal with. At this stage they are aware enough to admit that all women fall somewhere on the crazy scale. They get along with their parents, and might even be friends with an ex-boyfriend because "it didn't work out" but they wont hate him.

Stage 2: Crazy
This is where the majority of women fall. This are the ones who get emotional for no reason, get mad at you for being the same person you were when you met her. But, given a little time you might learn to deal with her. These are the women you hear guys talk about when they just admit to being wrong about something even tho…

Crappiest Movie Sequel List

Over the years the movie studios, with little for original ideas, have take good and sometimes great movies that people love and want to see more of, and ruined them by making a crappy sequel. So, here is my list of top crappiest sequels of all time.

X-Men 3 Last Stand
The series started off great, the second one was almost as good, but the third movie really was crap. Hey, lets just kill everyone off and destroy some national landmarks, without any regard to a decent storyline. Luckily the franchise redeemed itself with X-Men First Class.

Superman Returns
Not necessarily a sequel but crappy enough worth mentioning. I know it is hard to live up to the iconic Christopher Reeves as Superman. The superman that we all know and love, so doing a movie with a new Superman is a difficult task. Add to that a boring plot and lame special effects, and we have a stinker.

The Matrix Revolutions
Another series that started out great and ended with a super crappy 3rd movie.
Indiana Jones and the Ki…

We caught Bin Laden, we've invaded two countries, and spend trillions of dollars. Yet we can't seem to finish the construction of the new buildings.
