    He paid them $536.49?

      No, he paid them .2 cents.

      e^(pi*i) = -1
      1/2+1/4+1/8+1/16+... = 1
      • $0.002 != 2 cents
      • of course, the i would have to look like a 2 in the tiny little scaled version of the picture. so I end up looking stupid.

        oh well.

        I thought e^2pi was kind of large...

      Sounds like you'd have a very strong leg to stand on, being charged for a service never provided? $99 buys at least a few hours of my yelling on a phone.

      • You don't understand. If I pay the $99, I pay the $99. If I don't pay the $99, then Verizon sells my "account" to a debt collector (or several, repeatedly), harrasses me, ruins my credit, and so on.

        I say this on the accounts of others, such as the one who posted the $.002 +1 -1 photo.

        In other words, Verizon appears to me to be a legally criminally minded organization (that is, the company violates thou shalt not steal through means that are barely legal, but designed to be illegal) that very much should b
