Virgin Media

In general, I dislike companies who are trying to sell me stuff, however I just received the most fantastic phone call from Virgin Media.

See, they took over NTL about a year ago now, and since then I have been pretty pleased with their service, and I recently moved to a very nice package deal where I get phone and broadband for £20 a month.

The phone call I received was from their sales department, and the conversation went something like this: (paraphrased)

Sales Person (SP): Hi there, I’m from Virgin Media!
Me: Hi…
SP: I’m just calling to see if I can save you any money, what package do you have at the moment?
Me: I have phone and broadband for £20 a month.
Long Pause…
SP: Right, you’re on a really good deal at the moment, and I can’t save you any more money.  Thankyou for your time… bye!
Me: Bye!

How fantastic is that!

The Brick Testament

I just discovered this, and I think it’s fantastic!

There are some fantastic pictures, and I can’t imagine how much time it must have taken to make all of the scenes. Here are a few of my favourites:

God kills 50,070 Israelites
Balaam’s taking donkey
Love your enemies
Samson tears a lion apart
