David Thorne strikes again. With moderate success.
I like that he’s a bit of a Robin Hood. Fighting for the everyman. Taking on the corruption inherent in the system.
This time he had some overdue DVDs from Blockbuster.
Read the whole lot here…
He poses a question you’ve no doubt wondered about for years – why are late fees so high…
I have checked pricing at the DVD Warehouse and the cost of replacing your lost movies with new ones is as follows:
Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay $7.95
Journey to the Centre of the Earth $9.95
Logan’s Run $12.95
This totals $35.80 so I would rather pay that than the $82 late fee. I have no idea why Logan’s Run is the most expensive of the four movies as it was definitely the worst. Have you seen it? I wouldn’t pay $12.95 for that. I would use the money to buy a good movie instead. Probably something with Steven Seagal in it. The entire premise comprised of living a utopian and carefree lifestyle with only three drawbacks – wearing seventies jumpsuits, living in what looks like a giant shopping centre and not being allowed to live past thirty. This would seem logical though as I would not want a bunch of old people hanging around complaining about their arthritis while I am trying to relax at the shopping centre in my jumpsuit trying not to think about the computer crashing.
