Chelsea Manning on the short list for commutation: call the White House at 202-456-1111 to help her!

Area codes are the way they are because the most populous areas should be the easiest to dial on a rotary phone. So, New York got 212, Chicago got 312, LA 213, Detroit 313, CT 203, NJ 201, etc. The second digit was always 0 or 1 to make dialing easier. Now it doesn't matter, and it's total anarchy, with middle digits greater than 1, overlays and cell-phone-only codes everywhere, and people having cell phones in states where they don't even live.

It's the same number you call when you don't like the way the guy in front of you is driving.

I never thought to bother the US Federal govt about drivers here in Japan.


#26

Soon you can. We'll send nukes to deal with the problem.

Then there isn't a number for you to vote no at. But there is an open venue for gloating about wanting to, if you so choose.

Thank fucking God

Good. Fucking. Riddance.
