The Broadband Snob

from the well-at-least-I-don't-look-down-at-people dept

As many of you know, I am the broadband Bermuda Triangle. However, here is the official broadband snob. She looks down on those “56k” people and won’t touch their computers. She tries to convince everyone she knows to sign up for broadband as well, so they stop mooching off of her. I don’t know, but to me it sounds like a challenge. Maybe I should figure out who her broadband provider is and see if I can take them down.

Mike, I think there must be a better historical analogy than the Bermuda Triangle–perhaps somebody famous for being on more than one ship that sunk. (The opposite of the Unsinkable Molly Brown.) Or maybe some WWII pilot who was shot down a lot. But I can’t think of any example like that. Maybe you’re the Typhoid Mary of Broadband. Does that fit any better?
