    3. Those are 2 different phone books, one is the white pages (alphabetical list of residential phone numbers), and the other is the yellow pages (advertisements and phone numbers for businesses listed by categories). I know it’s 2007, and nobody uses a phone book anymore, but c’mon…

    13. Casemods need to learn the difference between “your” and “you’re” before he can go on bashing other people’s stupidity.

    14. I know it says “before and after”, my point is that the yellow pages are always bigger than the white pages. Also, white pages in every city are shrinking due to people giving up their listed land-lines for cell phones.

      Point is…those phonebooks illustrate absolutely nothing about Katrina.

    16. I don’t think those are the yellow pages; I have a white pages that is a year old and is experiencing some yellowing. This book probably was exposed to water and urine and other shit.

      Yellow pages are a deeper yellow than that.

    17. Maybe its because they bussed them all to different cities and they’re not leaving.. Hint hint.

    18. True, natakumus, plus, you can see the white in the side of the book.

    19. Bear in mind that the post says “Phone Book” not “White Pages”. There were 1086 pages of residential listings (= above the blue line) in the 2004 directory vs. 765 pages in the new one. Page thickness seems the same as far as I can tell. What’s also interesting is that the 2007 directory has a Lasik surgery banner ad (?!) on the top of every page, reducing the number of listings per page to 250 or so; there’s an everage of about 300 listings per page in the 2004 directory.

    20. But after taking all of everything that was said into consideration.

      That subtracts from teh phunneh.
      Hence; mass-fail.

    21. Yes, Kaze, I’m beginning to think the 9-11 pictures a better investment of time, although this was a nice break from offensive.
