A moment of silence

The inventor of Pop Rocks died on Monday, July 26th. (And no, it's not because he was drinking soda while eating the candy). According to the article, he spent his life fighting to dispel that myth.

On a completely different topic, I have a Verizon cell phone, and like it a lot. But I don't think my phone company would lie for me. Cingular has a new service called Escape-A-Date where they'll give you a rescue phone call to help you escape a blind date that's not going very well.

Here's an example from the press release:
Hey, this is your escape-a-date call. If you're looking for an excuse, I got it. Just repeat after me, and you'll be on your way!

"Not again! Why does that always happen to you? ... Alright, I'll be right there." Now tell 'em that your roommate got locked out, and you have to go let them in. Good luck!
The name Cingular sounds like it's meant for single people, so maybe that's affecting their marketing strategy?
