    What do they have in common? The idiocy to keep their WiFi 100% free with a quarter mile range. I'm chillen in their parking lot using the internet right now with no intent on going inside to buy anything at all. :D

    Yay for free interwebs!

    1/4 mile range on wifi? Must be no other signals from competing devices on the wifi spectrum in your area . . . . . . . . you live in the middle of nowhere :p

    I was sitting in the mall parking lot around a 1/4 mile away when I picked up the signal, so I drove over and sat in front of the store to get a better signal. haha

    I live in the middle of nowhere, but I can almost get one of my neighbor's wifi signals, they're about half a block away... I've been wanting to Pringle's-can that sumbitch and see if I can get a connection.

    Learn some manners... it was just a question, if you don't feel like answering then don't.
