Watch A Guy Sit On Hold With Comcast Until They Close

3:22:35 and counting…



The saga of what happens when you try to cancel your Comcast account continues this evening with a recording of the tail end of a more than three-hour wait on Comcast’s retention line. As far as we can tell, sitting on hold with Comcast for upwards of three hours isn’t a unique experience, but not everyone is creative enough to call Comcast with another phone while still on hold… only to hear a recording informing them that the company has closed for the day.


Three hours is a long time. (For context, during the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong spent 2 hours and 31 minutes walking around on the surface of the moon.)


We suppose there are a few explanations for how such a absurdly long wait time could happen. Perhaps this customer was lost in some mysterious queue. Perhaps Comcast plays that recording after a certain time of day and then finishes up the calls that are already in said mysterious queue. That doesn’t seem to be the case for this guy, however. He says (on reddit) that after being transferred to the retention department, his call was never answered.


Because he was calling to terminate his account after Comcast’s repeated failure to repair his service (multiple no-shows by technicians) there’s probably not much Comcast can do to repair this relationship. We’re just happy to hear that he had another cable provider to which he could switch. Not everyone is so lucky as to have that choice.

New York State Will Officially Ban Tiger Selfies

(main4rme)



Hurry up, people who aspire to take photos of themselves with tigers: today, the governor of New York State signed a bill banning the practice of paying to have your photo taken with a large cat. Yes, this will be commonly referred to as the “tiger selfie” ban.

As radio station WPDH in Poughkeepsie points out, businesses that let you pet and take a photo with tigers and other exotic animals have been popular attractions at county fairs, including the nearby Dutchess County Fair, in years past. You get a sticker that says “I touched a tiger,” and a photo perfect for your online dating profiles. Starting in 2015, exchanging money for tiger photos will now be illegal in New York state.


“It is hard to believe it is not already illegal,” Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal, sponsor of the bill, told reporters. The bill is intended to stop small roadside and traveling zoos that charge for contact with big cats. Advocates for the animals say that the zoos take small kittens from their mothers, then discard the big cats when they become too large to handle.

The Main Difference Between These Sleep Number Mattresses? $2,000


Sure, when you step into a mattress showroom, the sales placards might tell you all of the fancy differences between different beds with widely varying price points. A $3,000 bed can’t possibly be three times more comfortable than a similar bed that only costs $1,000… right? Mattress tests by our foam-cushioned cousins down the hall at Consumer Reports found that there’s very little objective difference, but “comfiness” isn’t really an objective measurement.

For example, they compared two Sleep number beds: the c2, which normally costs $1,000 and was on sale for $700, and the Innovation Series i8 (Pillowtop), which cost $3,000. In objective tests that they run using specialized equipment, they found that the less expensive bed, the c2, was actually more stable than the pricier one, which means that a person sleeping on one side won’t disturb their partner on the other half if they move around a lot while they sleep.


Of course, there are real differences that account for that price discrepancy. Namely, the more expensive mattress has a thicker foam layer on top. You might find that more comfortable for sleeping, or you might prefer a more stable mattress: that’s why it’s important to try them out in person instead of depending on price as a proxy for quality. You already knew that, though, didn’t you?
