Would You Watch an Ad to Avoid Paying an ATM Fee? [POLL]

I hate ATM Fees.  I mean, I understandy why a machine charges the fee.  The owner of the machine and the service wouldn't make a dime if they didn't dink you every time you took out 20 bucks.

It just seems that I'm nowhere near one of my bank's ATMs when I really need one so I wind up coughing up around two to four dollars just to pull out twenty; and the fees can add up.

Let’s Start A Petition To Rename The Moon

I think we got ripped off on moon names. Other planets in the solar system have cool moons named "Ganymede," "Io," "Titan," "Europa," "Phobos," and "Charon." Ours is called "The Moon." And considering it's the 5th biggest moon in the system, I think it should get a little more respect... and a new name.

Should High School Refs be Allowed to Work Games if they are Related to Players? [poll]

The NFL has been using replacement referees this season because of a labor dispute.  Yesterday, they had to replace one of the replacements.  Brian Stropolo was assigned to work the New Orleans Saints game against the Carolina Panthers but the NFL removed him from the game, because his Facebook page was full of photos and comments about what a huge Saints fan he was.  They replaced him with an alternate official.

Should the same rules apply to high school sports?

Zippers or Buttons? [poll]

It never fails.  I'll be out somewhere in public and look down only to find my fly is wide open.

I hate zippers.  They never stay up... or maybe it's time to move up to a bigger size.

I submit that we make zippers illegal and move to buttons from here forward.  Who's with me?
