No Cheating Allowed.....


Read this gem from the latest report from the Parents Television Council.

"Among the networks overall, references to adultery outnumbered references to marital sex by 2 to 1. The "family hour" _ the first hour of prime-time TV, which draws the most young viewers contained the highest ratio of references to non-married vs. married sex, the study found."

Why the hell is this even an issue? Is it better to have your 5 year old hear a reference to married sex than non-married sex? If all adultery references vanished and all we had were good, wholesome references to married sex, would that make the PTC walk with a renewed stride? Hearing about how Dad cheated on Mom with a high priced call girl in Vegas is worse than hearing Dad brag to his co-workers about his wife and how he "gave it to her good" the other night?

The children of PTC members will grow up knowing that it's all in the context of how you....you know....do it.

Huh..hahah..huh...I said "do it". Said, of course, in that married, male and female, missionary position kind of way...

Go Green...All of the Cool Kids Are Doing it.....


Bowdoin Collage in Maine has decided, in all of their wisdom, to outlaw cars for all first year students starting in 2009. Yes boys and girls, if you are a freshman in 2009 you will be without a car. This, of course, is all a part of Bowdoin going "green".

What fucking balls they have.

If I'm a first year student and I have a car that I bought and paid for by doing some shitty job throughout high school, I can't have it on campus? A legal possession of mine is outlawed in some half assed attempt to make the public think that your little corner of the world is more civilized than the rest because you have gone "green"?

It's stuff like this that drives me to make my carbon footprint the size of Orson Welles. I'm all for saving the planet, but I'm all against stupidity. That, when coupled with how I cut my nose off to spite my nose....I just want to set a pile of plastic on fire while drinking the tears of polar bears who's home of ice has melted due to global warming.
