Guess what today is, its venting day! You know we all want to have them whether we actually do or not and we all have something to say about virtually anything yet we keep to ourselves, well most of us. Its fitting that today is my day considering I am having some serious writer’s block and haven’t been interested in most of the things I was reading about today.
I’ve been asking this question for years but never get a concrete answer, “Why do we park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?” Yes I know its one of those unanswerable questions, but maybe, someday, they’ll be a little insight on that one. I never understand why construction workers on the freeways have to work during rush hour traffic. I mean we already know its going to take you like 5-10 years to get it finished anyways so why not wait until rush hour is over.
Steroids? I’m so sick of hearing about this. So what some bad apples took some pretty bad drugs, but does that mean that you shouldn’t be allowed to go to GNC and buy supplements? I mean who cares the baseball fellas still have to hit the ball right? Amazingly enough we all have complained about it in some sense yet we still go to the ballparks and watch the boys play. Whew, talk about a bunch of hippocrates. The same people parading around how bad Barry Bonds is yet a stadium full of people are cheering him on to beat the home run record, come on.
How bout the war. Ooooooooooo this is going to ruffle some feathers I’m sure. All I have to say is WHAT’S THE POINT? 9/11 was what 6 years ago, and where are we now. Outgrowing the death toll in New York in Iraq with soldiers of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and children. What exactly have we accomplished, and while we are over there piddling around with a country where 1% of the population basically wants to live as a democracy we have blind issues here. You know the Jamaat Ul-Fuqra group living within the United States in secluded areas with military training facilities and corralling as many convicted men and women in our prisons to convert to their religion. So they put this group on the U.S. Terrorist Watch Group? What exactly are they watching again, for something else to happen. I mean this people are growing in the thousands and feel their law is above any. So again I ask, What’s The Point?
Eventually are is TV only going to be reality? There’s not a major network you can turn where you won’t find a game show or reality television anymore. Eventually we’ll have to pay additional money to the cable companies just to get shows like CSI, Grey’s Anatomy, 24, and all the good shows. Speaking of TV, you don’t really need one anymore do you? I mean if you have a computer you can pay cheaper prices and watch television right there. So what if its small just get a big ol’ flat screen and hook your computer up to it. Oh wait, that would mean we still need a TV. Well then the computer companies need to build bigger monitors then!
Anyone know who Hannah Montana is? Its Billy Ray Cyrus’s daughter and he says he’s not going to let his daughter turn into the likes of Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. If I remember correctly their parents said the same thing when they were younger and innocent and full of potential. We’ll have to see down the road how this one turns out. Hopefully BRC is right. How about Justin Timberlake denying that he is dating Jessica Biel. ARE YOU CRAZY MATE! If you are going to deny that you should have denied your marriage to Cameron Diaz every time you spoke to someone. You know, like “Yes, I’d like to order the New York Strip with potatoes and I deny ever being married to Cameron Diaz. Can I have a coke with that?” Bro they have pictures of you kissing and Jessica spending time with your mom.
Oh and whats fast about Fast Food? I don’t know where you live, but where I live there is nothing fast about it at all. Except for a Wendy’s establishment in Fairfield Township that serves you with the quickness. Otherwise anywhere else I go its “Sir can you pull forward and we’ll have your meal out to you momentarily.” Ah well in that case why don’t I just come inside and sit down to eat!
How about Hydrogen vehicles being the future of the economy. Last time I checked there was about 25 hydrogen fuel stations around the country, how we gonna swing that? OH ya I forgot we are going to have refrigerators in our garages with rechargeable capacities, so how much is that gonna cost? I believe NASA uses this to lift the space shuttle into orbit and thats gotta be a hefty price in itself. It will be awesome if you can swing that in a three year span, but who’s going to be able to afford everything for it when they come out?
Who here has a profile on a social or business networking site on the Internet? How ridiculous is that becoming. Not only is there thousands of networks to begin with, but now their are websites that will create your very own networking site for you free of charge while they place Google ads or whatever all of the pages and reap the benefits. Eventually if there isn’t already there are going to be as many networking sites as there are cities in the United States and it will be just like another scavenger hunt to find where your friends are. Who will spend the time looking through all of them.
Why do sports figures make so much money even when they are hurt. First person that comes to mind is Grant Hill. If anyone says they have the easiest job in the world think about Hill when he made millions sitting in a PTA meeting seat on the sidelines for 4 years. Or what about Roger Clemens, don’t get me wrong but he got $28.5 million to pitch from May until September? 5 months of playing time which he would pitch at most maybe 25-30 times. So its basically a million dollars per start and if he loses how much does he have to pay back?
Racial issues, ugh, is it ever possible to get rid of this crap! So sick of turning around every 5 minutes and someone screaming race. You can call me anything you want just don’t call me late for supper! I mean pretty soon it will get to the point that people are suing each other because they “think” that the other person was thinking about racial remarks.
Or how about those codes that you get when you either go to a fast food restaurant or look under the cap of your Coca-Cola. Why do we never win and why is it always a mystery who does. Not to mention that are completely absurd codes, “Your number is IUDG267865GFDIRYUDYTJ45643636” how many people even spend the time placing that in the boxes. Then of course when you get to the websites you fill out all this information before you submit. THEY GOTCHA! Time to mail out a few thousand emails to your inbox to catch your attention.
What exactly is Child Support? How is it different from Spousal Support if they can use it for whatever they want?
Cigarette smoking commercials can be comical at times. You know the ones that role play this car full of people and there is one person who is a non-smoker that had the equivalent of 4 cigarettes in an hour or whatever. OK so if that is the case then why wouldn’t they just smoke, I mean they would actually be having less right? Haha, I do love the one that has about 1200 people standing out on the streets with no smoking shirts or what not on and the big wigs are in this tall heated mirror building when they look down and it all the people play dead at the same time, thats a good one.
Why in the world are bedbugs more likely to be in clean homes than non-clean?
Why do they keep snubbing Pete Rose for the hall of fame, isn’t it for your on the field job over the course of your career. I mean Cooperstown is already conveying its okay to be an alcoholic, wife beater, racist, drug abuser, and many other types of people that is not good for the game. Especially if they are all supposed to be role models.
Is cancer ever going to be cured? Or is it another propaganda tool for new and open medicines. Why don’t more people try natural healing?
I think Shaq’s television show helping obese children is awesome, and it only took the networks about 8 years to finally decide to do it.
Why is it when you go and get a haircut you can never make it look the same even if you spend $30 to use the same products they do?
Why for so long for fortune cookies written in English. Hows that big immigration fence for Bush working out. Who wants a woman president? Who wants an African-American president? Why is there a difference, WHO CARES! You still get up every morning or whatever time of the day your job requires and you work, you still do the same things you do every other day so whats the difference.
Curious to see where our economy is headed after the war is finished, which it never will be by the way, we will either pull out or continue a never-ending war. Do you really think Saddam Hussein was executed? Could that have been a double in his place?
I think Pursuit of Happiness is one of the best stories ever told in the movies with the way society is today. I think Coach Carter is another one. I don’t think The Chronicles of Narnja was everything it was cracked up to be, I thought the Dr. Seuss movie with Michael Myers was one of the most boring kids movies I have ever seen, and I think Ryan Phillippe was an idiot for cheating on Reese Witherspoon.
I hate leftovers, and if I pull something out of the fridge and the expiration date is the same day I throw out.
I love how so many parents can’t stand for their children to play video games even though it teaches them great hand-eye coordination and for the younger children you can use the story lines to practice their reading skills and use statistics for math skills as well.
I hate to love Kool-aid, but hey its cheap and loaded with sugar. I’m disappointed how my life has turned out to this point which is probably all my fault, but I am excited for what the near future brings. I love to write, and hate to be wrong. I can’t stand not being able to do something and am stubborn enough to try it again with the same results over and over until I finally figure it out. Like the two news articles I wrote for AC. Can’t get paid for either one, but one made the front publish. A little ironic but OK AC thanks!
Why O Why do people take showers until they run out of hot water. How come others get dressed before they brush their teeth and men that need to shave. When is texting and instant message abbreviations and slang going to be taught in your local school system. Can you imagine what the spelling bees are going to be like then, “Suzy, can you spell the sentence, I don’t know how I’m going to”, “IDK how I’m goin’ 2” .
Who started this Emo Kids stuff. I mean emotional kids have been around for what like a million years, was someone watching Sesame Street and saw Elmo and was crying and upset and went, “Hey I’m not an Elmo Kid, I’m an Emo Kid”. Why are we stereotyping them with haircuts and clothing anyways. The way they are describe I could look at thousands of bands and rock groups that dress the same way. In fact I bet an Emo kids band will come out soon.
Why do people think it is important as to what is going around in the world? Or in political office. Isn’t most of it “ca ca mimi @#$@” anyways letting us hear what we want to hear and letting us see only what we are allowed to see. Have you ever seen V for Vendetta? Great movie and hilarious political parodies.
I love the rain, but I wish it was sunny, I love the snow but I wish it was warm, lol. Sounds like I need Prozac or something.
Anyways, this would be a never ending article as I could topple all kinds of subjects and well I have had my venting session for today. Maybe in a few weeks I’ll throw a few more out there for you. Until Next Time……………..
