And the all-caps. Goddamn, it's like one of Kimmo's rage bulletins but a law.

Which is a pretty terrifying concept on its own.

I kind of agree with the law. If you buy a subsidized contract phone, you are to stick with the plan and stay locked to the carrier until either the contract is fulfilled or you pay the fee to cancel. When you cancel or finish the contract, however, the phone companies should be obligated to unlock your phone. Fair is fair, after all.

The UN should take one of those hopeless bankrupt third world countries and give it to Kimmo to run.

Also there must be some sort of electronic bulletin system where every citizen must read and acknowledge every bulletin every day or be shitlisted.

And a secret police who enforce grammar.

Any citizen caught mispronouncing or misspelling a word is taken during the night and sent to a grammar camp, never to return.

Stop being such poorfags and buy unlocked. For fuck sakes, the Nexus 4 is only $400.
