I don't see the problem with this photo.
He looks like every other iDiot that waited in line for a phone.
I kid, I kid.
I SAID CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?!!
Nothing wrong with the photo? Think again.
If i'D known this would have happened, i'D have picked my own cotton
Hi customer service ..
About my bill ..
AT&T's time-roaming charge is HOW MUCH!!!??
That's why the North won the Civil War. They were using iPhones. Those Southern rebels were using Pres and there weren't enough of them to go around.
the only thing about the photo is that it does look a bit overexposed... the flash could have used a bit of difusion
That guy looks stupid.
Oh I am so going to regret this.
I am so going to regret posting this.
Technically, you shouldn't. He holds the phone to the ear, yelling, to the home screen. Stupid indeed. I would have done the same.
good point pavlindrom. I am just glad i am not as hot and sweaty as the dude to his right!
i prefer the X11 logo on other dudes back
Thanks, faceless internet commentator.
The reason it's on the home screen was because I specifically took it for a caption contest on Engadget.
It's for a laugh, not for legitimacy. As you could tell by my expression, it was purely for a photo.
And I don't do these events, normally. My Dad asked me to when I went back to VA to visit. I told him only if I could get a shot in battle on my iPhone.
And that's the end of that story.
lol@ the X11 logo. You
have damned sharp eyes, sir.
Also, "Thomas: "Robert E. Lee!? I thought you said rob a 3G" got me pretty good. :)
My Contrib: "AHHHHHHHHHH MY BRAAAAAIN AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!"
(I'm assuming humans from the past have a lower tolerance for cell phone radiation)
Virginia's good for these kinds of get-togethers ...
Well that explains the miss match blue then. Seems it might have been photo'choped since the only person in the picture that didn't have the same hue also had the iPhone.
Can you hear me now?
Nope, I still get no signal!
"And I thought AT&T's 2009 coverage was poor..."
How about: "It's the future calling. They want their phone back."
Did The Doctor mod their phone to get temporal reception ?
I'm sure this is a dead zone
God dammit I ctrl+f'd dead zone hoping no one took it. Someone did. FML
holy crap I know that guy! I used to work with him!
Who are you? Where did we work together?
One of the overlooked features of the new iPhone 3GS is that it has the ability of time travel.
Time travel? There's an app for that!
Apple's Time Machine does much more than was
Maybe this guy is with the Doctor. The Doctor can fix cell phones to work anywhere in time and space.
We must go back to the island.
Can you hear me now?
Nice, but the guy CT above you already said it... so don't go commenting on others about how you were original when you weren't...
I knew the reception was going to be bad in 1865, I really shouldn't have to yell. Damn Iphone.
"Ma, that dude behind me is looking at me funny again"
"So ... the blue soldiers get and iPhone and the gray soldiers get a Palm Pre?"
could you please be more specific?
I hear Stonewall Jackson was very fond of his Blackberry.
What about the guy who used a digital camera to take the picture of the guy on his technologically advanced iPhone?
He used a pinhole and everybody was standing still like that for 5 minutes, I'm sure.
I am going into an ACTUAL dead zone, call me back.
"Naw, they couldn't hit an elephant from that dist-"
It's the South. They said they're sorry. We can go home now.
What do you mean tethering to my iRifle isn't allowed on AT&T?
"Any one know how to get google maps to work on this thing?"
I managed to, and according to this... There should be a McDonald's 200 feet south.
"Hey the Smore Schnapps are on their way!"
Lol South Park rules
"...you see kids... my great great great great great grandfather was an Apple fanboy too.... just like you will be someday"
a good one!
too bad i just said it...
Can you hear me now?
"Dearest Annabelle. It's been so hard these last five months without seeing you, I only hope the service I do for our great Union... hold on. Enough with the cannons already!"
You say MMS available soon!?
"So ... the blue soldiers get an iPhone and the gray soldiers get a Palm Pre?"
"...This is so much cooler than the iTelegraph"
Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson??? Forget it, this war isn't worth fighting anymore.
Civil War, Slavery, Death and Dying we got an app for that
Why isn't the GPS working ?
What? Are you telling me bullets now have to be bought individually after the 3.0 update?
popular bullets are priced at $1.29 instead of $0.99
I will defer to the wisdom of George Carlin on
the topic of Civil War reenactments:
"There are actually people who go out and re-fight these battles. You know what I say? Use real ammunition, assholes! You just might raise the intelligence level of the American gene pool!"
Yeah. Carlin. There's
a class act of sophistication.
I would almost agree with you, minus the fact that these guys also teach morons such as yourself to distinguish between Blue and Grey. Half the time tourists don't know the difference, or know Union from Confederate...
Just because it's a hobby that doesn't involve a computer or technology doesn't make the enthusiasts morons.
However, I cannot say the same for the Grey Rebels. Most of those guys ARE idiots.
"General Grant! We need air support... NOW! "
Forget 3G coverage, we barely have 0.01G
Also not pictured is the 1-inch thick telegraph wire attached to the back of it!
Maw! Somthn just jumped up and bit me in the buttox
One second earlier:
"Y'know, Watchin' tha war, havin' a Bud"
what? I paid $600 for an iphone clone?
All the confederates wanted was tethering.
"whaddaya mean they took of the Hottest Girls app!? How the hell am I going to finish the job!!?"
"Theorizing that one could time travel
within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into
the desert to develop a top-secret project known as Quantum Leap. Pressured to
prove his theories or lose funding, Dr. Beckett prematurely stepped into the
project accelerator, and vanished.
He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was maintained through brain-wave transmissions with Al, the project observer, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Dr. Beckett can see and hear. Trapped in the past, Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home."
Ziggy! GET ME OUTTA HERE!!!
+1 for the Quantum Leap reference!
Stop texting or we will amputate your thumbs, you can fire a weapon w/o thumbs ya know.
Another dropped call. Poor soul.
Alright men, we came back from the future to try and stop the North from winning this time....what?...can you hear me now? Hello? Damn dropped a call.
Sonova b... 1 second too late.
Mr. Lincoln..I'm having a problem getting the Gettysburg address on my GPS
I knew the iPhone was alien technology.
Guy number 1: "What's that you got
Guy number 2: "The Devil"
"that's not from
the civil war..."
"BUT IT HAS A COMPASS!"
1865 iPhone: Government secrets revealed. Tonight at 9.
I want a bigger version for my desktop!
"...Although had strict orders not to alter the course of time, agent 089 couldnt resist popping back to the future to grab a new iPhone, especially since the line in front of the SoHo store was so short..."
Doc: Marty, you've gotta
Marty: I'm calling you from 1865, how far back do I have to go, Doc?
Doc: Far enough back to stop AT&T, so I can get my CDMA iPhone!
"NO, MOM, we're NOT DONE, yet! You'll have to drive around for a few minutes."
They later burned him for witchcraft. Stupid Pre fanboys
"I bet I can get on engadget if I break the rules of this reenactment." - Tool
Yeah, that's basically what happened. I would hardly call myself a tool, however.
Bad day at work... I wanted to use something with a little more sting.
Hey guys! I just checked Wikipedia and it says that we win this one.
"...and that we then ally with the Klingons to take over the Delta Quadrant?!?"
"This was day that would not only see
North against South, but Lincoln against Lincoln."
"Well, you see two Lincolns showed up. Now, that was a case of poor planning, pure and simple. And Lincoln himself had never been at the actual battle in the first place. So? neither of them should have been there. It was just two Lincolns too many."
Also we might want to watch our left flank...
History Channel Civil War: Secret Missions for
"Uh dude I don't think this is a game anymore......"
Help! I'm surrounded by "Grays"!!
General Lee... your only error was twittering
your battle plans.
The real tragedy is that General Pickett dropped his iPhone in a puddle... he never got the message that the charge was cancelled...
When Marty McFly went back in time, he left something behind...again.
I had no idea that participating in Civil War reenactments meant that you were a nerd. I thought it meant you were a dork.
The 3g speed is faster than Grant going through Atlanta!
Sherman. The bastard.
Send in the Cavalry NOW!
talking to the home screen = tool
Well that makes two people calling me a tool, guess I'll go shoot myself now.
"I'm going to have to wait HOW LONG for copy and paste?"
Yeah we are totally pwning the south.
"Can you hear me then?"
Hello? I would like to order 700,000 tombstones please!
guy taking the photo with the digital camera: Hey dude, put away that phone. This is a civil war reenactment.
"It's the South sir! No, I'm not shitting you. They ARE rising again!"
Let's get them slave holdin'
Yeah! We'll Tar and Tether them and MMS our victory to the world!
"Oh Gawd, Laura, I know you told me not to use the Time Machine on our Mac again, but dammit, I couldn't help it. Help ME! I'm surrounded by a bunch of rednecks!!!"
My proximity sensor isn't working !!!
wrong war, but, "don't fire until you see the whites of their phones!"
You want me to bring milk home for the baby?
Why is the guy behind me soooo sweaty?!
Think wool + Pennsylvania summer + extreme exercise.
It was New Market, Virginia. Wasn't THAT hot, but yeah...and the 3G coverage was there. I was surprised.
What do you mean I'm fighting for iPhone equality?! I can scarcely afford the one line I already got!!
How about this one "WHAT?? I don't have service here, they haven't invented cellphone towers yet!"
You mean you still don't have mms?!
he looks like max bemis.
Could we, uh... talk to Colonel Kurtz?
Honey just relax, I'll be fine... yes I'm sure!...yeah, Shelton-Laurel Massacre had something to do with college basketball...well, who are you gonna believe, me or Wikipedia?
Um yeah...Mr. Jobs? This is Dean in R&D. You know that Time Travel app you wanted me to test...
the guy to the left "fin annoying iphone holders. think they own everything."
"The Pron App ROCKSS!!!!"
Taken at the battle of Applemattox, I presume?
Yeah, yeah...but I wanna know, who had the CAMERA on the Civil War hike!
"I said, this would be a lot easier if we just used Pocket Tanks."
No! We did not order any port-a-potty's for our re-inactment.
hey,any body here seen Mike Hunt
Wow this new time travel app is AWESOME!
Augh!!! What do you mean you don't deliver in Gettysburgh.
"Hang on, let me call missus to prepare my bath. There really should be an app for that."
"Is the the line for the new iScorne 1864GS?"
How fitting. My Dad, who took this picture, helped coined that phrase.
Wait, he didn't coin it. Sorry. He found who coined it, and wrote an article in the Camp Chase Gazette.
So I assume he doesn't soak his buttons in pee?
ew. my brother is such a dork.
My wife is doing what???!?!?
So, I actually know this guy. :) Yeah, that's not a comment, but it's funny to see him.
"It's OK guys, they're sending Terminators!"
From a time when bullet wounds meant amputation, and soldiers had to wait days for their data over EDGE.
Mammay....I can haz cheezburger....it dun jailbreaked
I can't find the Gettysburg address on google maps? I wish this thing had VZ navigator.
"guess what my left hand's doing"
Going to war against your own country... there is an app for that.

NERD:: Hey! We Got mortars incoming!...
"And I heard tell that General Samuel Cooper made one of his slaves wait in line for 7 days just so's he could have himself the first iPhone 3GS south of the Mason Dixon!!"
AT&T are such tyrants.
"And the plane will be
"What's a plane?"
"I don't know, I saw it on M*A*S*H."
Fruit company stocks? No thank you very much.
