In this first episode of an ongoing series, Robert Anton Wilson's name is dropped as the dumbing down of America the ignorance of retail customers is discussed. Also mentioned is Scott's recent experiences with Verizon's dismal customer service, his past history of teenage rebellion against former employer Woolworth (remember their lunch counters) by eating raw bacon, and other forms of employee retaliation through minor acts of petty theft.
Not enough, how about Planned Obsolescence, Joey's Tech Talk, corporate ignorance of the importance of a sustainable infrastructure to commerce, how much Service Electric sucks, and the importance of a good lead solder.
In the next episode, Scott will take additional time to explain to Joey in detail the literal definition of a Can of Juice.
