Centralia wasn't even a mining disaster, really. Its just the ultimate dumpster fire.

Seam fires are actually really common naturally. When Europeans first arrived at the Forks of the Ohio, they thought Mt Washington was a volcano because of a smoke plume that turned out to be a seam fire.

From my understanding you can't just record 6 random shows at once, instead you get two shows and the four major networks.

You're not the only one. It pisses me off because a loving Kit Kat bar does not crunch like a god drat potato chip when you bite into it god drat it, candy marketers, how do you not get your own product and annoy me so endlessly.

Randy Savage also took money from Slim Jim for years to intentionally misrepresent the sound a piece of their beef jerky made when you bit into it.

It did not make a "snap" noise, nor did it ever make a snap noise. It will NEVER make a snap noise. Ever.

gently caress a commercial that features a lot of chomping and lip smacking and talking with your mouth full. Miracle Whip had one a while back when they were doing some bullshit pretentious "Oh we're like...heh, totes underground much? Probs haven't heard of us " ad campaign and one of the commercials had an incredibly goony gently caress flapping his gums with a mouthful of sandwich and a shitload of Miracle Whip at the screen being super awkward because that's totally in guys right right heh you just don't... get sandwich condiments???

I don't know what it is about this stupid commercial about a high school football player video gone viral, but it fills me with a burning rage. It's not so much the player's stunt or himself saying HELLO!, but it's the stupid people featured throughout the commercial repeating the drat phrase in an unbelievable "OOOOOH OH gently caress ME WOAH " tone.

Also, a 4G network isn't what makes a viral video, AT&T; having it go loving viral on social media sites and message boards does.

says some high school football player is going to be stupid enough to attempt that, suffer a horrible injury or even die in the process, and the parents will end up suing AT&T over the ad. The lack of a "do not attempt this" or "don't try this at home" warning makes me think this will happen even though most people seem to ignore them regardless.

If you're in the physical condition to actually pull that off, you can do it safely. For instance, when it happened a last season (and what inspired the commercials): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qN1SFA2UDOc

Also its been 15 years since Starship Troopers gave anyone the idea in the first place.

I couldn't tell you why, but the first time I saw this, I wasn't really paying attention and I thought he was with a different girl in each one of those last shots. I feel like it would've been a better commercial if that were the case.
