The Death Star is Everywhere, Fighting Those NIMBYs – We Need MORE Antennas, Hang Those Who Talk of Less

You know, I read this and I think, “Wow, five bars on AT&T?* That’s pretty sweet, huh?” I mean, I’d put that info front and center in a craigslist “roommates wanted” ad, and then I’d open the blinds to prove to prospective roomies I was telling the truth.

Hey, why don’t we install a modern communications infrastructure in town** first, and then tune things up for aesthetics later?

D’accord? D’accord!

If AT&T were to start stalking you, it would look like this:

Vaya con Gaia, AT&T. You should put your antennas wherever your engineers think it best.


Joe Turner: I’d like to go back to the 415.
Joubert: You have not much future there. It will happen this way. You may be walking. Maybe the first sunny day of the spring. And a van will slow beside you, and a door will open, and someone you know, maybe even trust, will get out of the car. And he will smile, a becoming smile. But he will leave open the door of the van and offer to give you a lift.”

And then, kapow!

*I’ve never used the AT&T myself. I’m spoiled by the mad bars you can get from Sprint 24-7 (except for the basement of the State Building, the EMF Death Zone).

** You know, so we could finally catch up to Dubuque, Iowa or someplace.

    Let me guess, you are renter… I am sure AT&T would love to put an antenna outside your window. If you are a homeowner, you can just call NextG networks an volunteer. Sounds like you could use five bars.

    Let me guess, you are a selfish NIMBY.

    SmartMeters, cell phone antennas, rescue helicopter flights, daily A380 superjumbo flights from Frantkfurt, all of it, bring it on. Else I’d move to the country, right?

    Let’s make sf look like a 3rd world country. The boxes that NextG is installing are ridiculous. Trying to get this stuff up cheap and quick… I guess we will rely on your strategy to “tune things up for aesthetics later?” I am sure NextG will be a dear and do that for us…

    Tell that, NIMBY! Tell us how your Will To Live has extinguished ever since a metal box went near your wooden box in the West Bay. Tell us about the concomitant headaches you have ever since That Horrible Day in th’ Avenues.

    Your nabe is the same place before and after, actually. Try to worry the more important things in life, why not?
