1. User Profile: A 22-year-old grad student gets own phone plan but keeps her old number because the last four digits are the year the plague struck medieval Spain. Makes thirty dollars a week as a grad student and feasts upon a mixed diet of own tears and sometimes grilled almost-cheese. Company shuts off phone and while the 22-year-old grad student had gathered enough to pay the bill itself, she didn’t have enough to pay the reactivation fee. Much yelling of the evil of feudal lords was uttered nonsensically. (via The History of the Cellphone | The Hairpin)
