Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

I just discovered the site. It's strange that my interest in linguistics didn't lead me there sooner. The webmaster/author/publisher, one Reinhold Aman, is an unusually bitter fellow, but also oddly interesting, and it can't be denied that he knows a thing or two about the history of naughty language. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 25, 2011, 3:39 am

(more crickets) Dol, you're good at drive-by criticism, but you have a habit of bugging out when called on to back it up. A mere statement that something sucks, with no effort to elaborate, carries all the weight of a feather. Surely you must have a persuasive - or at least thought-provoking - defense of your assertion that rock is dead. Why withhold it from us? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 25, 2011, 3:09 am

People of Walmart - Websites
Considering how many Walmarts there are in this country, I think it's safe to say that a good percentage of the customers are just your basic average Americans. Nor am I persuaded that the average Target customer is alot better looking or better dressed than the average Walmart customer. I will say that I've dealt with some Walmart employees whose IQs were not far above that of a sea urchin. But customers? I'm too focused on finding the product I'm looking for to notice what the customers look like. I might add that it would be helpful to see what the people who run the People of Walmart site look like. How many of THEM look like they stepped off the front page of Cosmo or GQ? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 25, 2011, 2:18 am

Star Trek: Voyager - TV Shows
Some very interesting posts here. I feel a bit inadequate following them, but here goes: Being a Trek loyalist back then, I dutifully watched Voyager, though without much enthusiasm. There were rather few really gripping episodes, and the show wasn't as dark as one might have expected it to be, considering the overall concept. The season-ending cliffhangers did little to make me look forward to the next season, and the comings and goings of cast members made no real impression on me. In fact, I never managed to make an emotional connection with any of the characters, which meant that my interest in seeing them get home wasn't more than casual. (It was more a matter of curiosity than of hope: "How are they going to write that final episode?" As it happens, the finale was okay but, again, not terribly stirring.) I hoped Q would not make an appearance in this series, but unfortunately he did, and so did his predictably bratty kid. I can't identify a particular Boning Moment, though there was an early episode which answered the question of Amelia Earhart's disappearance in an EXTREMELY STUPID manner. In fact, there were quite a few episodes featuring stories that were scarcely more than retreads of earlier Trek stories. I will say, though, that I developed a grudging respect for Kate Mulgrew as the series progressed. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 25, 2011, 1:43 am

Roger Ebert - Celebrities
The "Siskel Croaked" boning reason is odd. I don't recall Siskel being a political conservative, and I certainly don't recall any on-air arguments between them that got political. By the way, Ebert is hardly the only film critic with a snooty attitude. If he rates a 6 on a one-to-ten scale of arrogance, John Simon would rate an 8, James Bowman (American Spectator) would be an 8.5 and the late Pauline Kael would be an easy 10. Of course, none of them ever had TV shows (as far as I know). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 24, 2011, 8:32 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
Robert, you make a damn good point about the stigma of being fat vs say, being alcoholic. As an example, if someone is fat, society tends to make fun of them and seems to consider it acceptable. It's as though with obesity or simply being a little overweight, people seem to attack the person rather then the issue. If they drink too much, society often seems to treat them like a hero or at least laughs at them but in a way that seems to consider the habit funny rather then dangerous/foolish. Society indeed seems to view drinking as 'it's a very bad habit to get into and/or you need to cut down before you end up killing yourself.'. That or 'you have a problem. This is why AA exists. Please, get help.' It's not the person they're saying is bad, it's the drinking they're saying is bad and is the issue. While with being overweight, it sometimes feels more like 'you're fat because you're a bad person and/or being fat makes you a bad person." Instead of (if indeed, over eating is to blame) 'You're overweight because you eat too much and/or are too inactive. If you want to lose weight you need to make some lifestyle changes. Help is available but you need to admit and accept that you have a problem.' What makes it worse is that we all need to eat while we don't need alcohol. It's easy to over indulge when it comes to something we do every day out of a biological need. As for the medical system stuff. I was speaking from the point of view of someone that lives in a country with socialized health care. Although even with an insurance system, wouldn't it be like car insurance where everyone ends up paying more if some people cost the company more money for whatever reason? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 24, 2011, 4:15 pm

Wikipedia - Websites
I originally wrote a lengthy post here, on the question of Wikipedia's reliability and overall value, based on the "Reasons for boning" complaints. But then I got to reading the discussion page on the "Jumping the Shark" Wikipedia entry, and specifically the "Linkspam" section, where the BTF link controversy is brought up. This made me shift gears (and delete that original post). I'm now curious as to the relationship - assuming one exists - between the two sites. Have there been any communications between the admin crew at Wikipedia and their counterpart at this site? Oh, and which of you fine citizens is Kb3777 (aka "just a random internet user")? I am tempted to wonder how many of the abovementioned boning reasons were prompted by the rough treatment our friends here suffered at the hands of the WP crew.......but maybe I shouldn't go there. At any rate, it's a shame WP doesn't have (won't allow?) a BTF entry, though I can see both sides of the argument over the appropriateness of linking to this site from their JTS entry. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 24, 2011, 12:20 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
I don't understand how treating people's obesity costs America millions of dollars. If I need a root canal, I pay the dentist's bill. Nobody else. Or is it based a faulty statistic tweaked to make fat people look like a drain on society? Since we don't have socialized medicine (or whatever it's called), how do fat people cost others money? Fat people pay for their own insurance and medical bills. I agree with ExplodingConsole on the obese kids thing: Parents who let their kids weigh as much as a minivan should be investigated, and their kids should be helped immediately. I also agree with Dolfan that there are plenty of other unhealthy lifestyles out there, WAY worse then obesity, yet less condemned: promiscuity risks STDs, excessive drinking causes alcohol-related illnesses, and so forth. Unlike other TRUE diseases, obesity can be cured with diet and exercise. No amount of pushups will undo a person's HIV infection, and eating tofu instead of potato chips will do nothing to cure an alcoholic's liver cancer. I think the reason obesity is the new villain is because fat people are an easier target and still have stigmas against them. I sigh in relief that they don't have an ultra-powerful lobby (in which calling a person "fatso" is considered a hate crime). As for fat people who blame others for their plight, they have nobody to blame but themselves. It's not like Ronald McDonald barged into their home and crammed big macs into their mouths. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 24, 2011, 10:57 am

Cigarettes - Random Topics
Cigarettes are a gross, expensive habit. Smoking has many bad side effects (yellow teeth, wrinkles, cancer, etc.) that have been well documented, so I won't go into them. Even the whole smoking a cigar every once in a while thing is gross. I think cigars are worse than cigarettes. You can put lipstick on a donkey, but it's still a donkey, if you know what I mean... At the same time, if a business wants to allow smoking, it should be able to do that. I understand certain smoking bans (the workplace, airplanes) as second-hand smoke sucks, but private businesses should be allowed the freedom to make that call, but that's the Libertarian inside of me talking. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 23, 2011, 6:58 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
I can't make them and I know I don't have the right to. In the end, it's their life and their body. And yes, it's also a case of don't judge others unless you prepared for others to judge you. The problem is that, a lot of people sometimes fall into the trap of seeing others not as separate people with their own lives, motivations, feelings, thoughts, influences etc. It's easy to see someone else behave in a way we consider less then acceptable and to imagine ourselves in their position and wonder how 'we' could do such a thing. Sort of how someone that is obese might not understand why someone else has an issue with it while the other person might not understand how the obese person can live like that. I think it's also the issue where it can be very hard to change one's lifestyle. I'm sure there are a lot of obese people that want to (perhaps badly) lose the weight and life a healthy lifestyle. Actually doing it however is a whole different thing. And like with so many other things, it's often not a matter of only eating less bad for you type food, not eating bad for you food anymore or walking to the store/work/school a bit more often. Losing weight and keeping it off can be one of the hardest things to do. Although, as others have said, I think that the so called obesity epidemic is way overblown. People talk as though half of the kids out there are obese when I doubt it's any worse then it was 20-30 years ago. Everyone seems to say how when they were kids that they were more active, ate less candy and less fast food and all this that and the other and how they lived so much better then the kids of today. If parents think there is an issue then I think they need to use their position as parents to do something about it. Only complaining about it isn't going to change anything. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 23, 2011, 3:03 pm

Barnaby Jones - TV Shows
I was always irritated by the arrangement Quinn Martin Productions had with Ford Motor Co to only feature Ford cars on its shows - Barnaby Jones, Cannon, the FBI, Streets of San Fran, etc. Watch any episode of any of those shows and you won't see a single vehicle that isn't a Ford/Lincoln/Mercury model. (Well, okay, maybe there are a few VW Beetles here and there, since they were everywhere back then.) It's a very minor detail, but it annoyed me to no end. I think Barnaby Jones drove a Ford Gran Torino, Inspector Erskine drove a Ford Galaxie 500 or (later) a Mercury Marquis, Cannon drove a Continental Mk III, and so on. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 23, 2011, 12:59 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
I'm with Robert all the way on this one. What people weigh should be their business. The same people who want to force everyone to weigh the same are the ones who keep saying you can't legislate morality. You can't tell people how to act but you can tell them what to weigh and what to eat? Puh-lease. And the medical system is drained anyway by malpractice suits, insurance companies (that doctors HATE having to deal with) and drugs for diseases I never heard of 10-20 years ago whose side effects can KILL you. And someone 5-10 pounds overweight is NOT "obese". I think the whole thing is driven by excessive shallowness to be honest. Everyone *knows* exercise is good for you and the people who want to do it will while those who don't, won't. It's as simple as that. How about addressing the far bigger issue of rampant societal amorality that's led to political corruption, celebs making a mockery of the justice system, and crime being worse than ever? After those issues are dealt with THEN people's body shape can maybe get worried about. It's not as if people who don't have the right look aren't already shunned by society anyway. If that's not enough motivation for them to lose the weight how are YOU going to make them? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 22, 2011, 6:11 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
Normally, I'd agree about the idea that it's their body and if they choose a lifestyle that leads to them being overweight or worse that it's their right. However, being overweight can lead to any number of health issues, which puts a drain on the medical system. It's also the issue of overweight parents tending to raise overweight kids. When one's bad habits start effecting the health of others, then I think it's no longer a private matter. The ultimate problem is that people want to blame everyone else but themselves for their problems. It's that and everyone wants a quick fix. Staying healthy can sometimes be a full time job that requires a lot of effort and honestly will not always be all that fun. It's often so much easier to just go to McDonalds or another fast food place to get a meal. Likewise, it's often so much easier to watch TV or play a video game then it is to exercise and/or take a walk. I think the bottom line problem is that it's become so much easier and perhaps even far more tempting to live a lifestyle that leads to being obese that it's of little wonder its become an issue. I'm not sure what the solution is because it seems that human nature could perhaps be the root of the issue. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 22, 2011, 1:02 pm

I've done some research on high fructose corn syrup: I heard it's not the villain people make it out to be. Your body can't tell the difference between it and cane sugar. Sugar is sugar. It's probably like saying the Vitamin A found in sweet potatoes is unhealthier than the Vitamin A found in carrots. The reason it's not "natural" is because it doesn't come from cane sugar. I agree people should eat healthier and take better care of their bodies, but it's none of our business. People have no right to impose themselves onto others. You see what happens to those who try to impose themselves onto gays or women who want abortions. Besides, when it comes to the people in my neighborhood, obesity is HARDLY the epidemic it's made out to be.

I had no idea the much tamer - and frankly much stupider - Baretta was a more family-friendly repackaging of Toma. And with all due respect to Fletch000, whose tastes are often fairly close to mine, no, I don't have to admit that Baretta was "one of the best shows on TV from 1975 to 1978", or even one of the best cop shows.

Meet the Parents - Movie Series
If this series did not bone with Meet the Fockers (despite great efforts from Hoffman, DeNiro and Stresiand), it certainly has not got any reminants of a skeleton with Little Fockers. That movie managed to ruin close to all of its jokes by showing how the set up was going to occur (for example, they showed one of the little kids walking towards a door to open it to walk in on DeNiro and Stiller in an embarassing situation - I forget what it was though - thus screwing up the vital spontaneousness of the "comedy"). The actors all looked aged, bored and over it. Not that I was that big a fan of the first, but it at least seemed like they cared and should have left it at that stand alone film.

Billy Joel - Music Groups
Huge Billy Joel fan. Love his music. Have pretty much all his albums. His hits are great, but some of his better songs are the regular songs on his albums. As a person I know he has his flaws (multiple marriages, addictions, multiple car accidents, etc.), but I still love his music and think he seems like a pretty good guy. Went to his concert in Las Vegas with my wife about two years ago. I think we were the youngest ones there, but still was awesome to see him live. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 20, 2011, 3:36 pm

S#*! My Dad Says - TV Shows
Soggy, I guess they [and Shatner] thought the viewers would eagerly watch ANYthing he did. At least this time, someone DID lose money underestimating the public's taste. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 20, 2011, 12:42 pm

Arnold Schwarzenegger - Celebrities
I don't disagree with you, Robert. However; this sort of thing is nothing new- and let's not deride Maria Shriver in this. The US Civil War diarist Mary Chestnut put it well, "every lady tells you who is the father of all the [biracial] children in everybody's household, but those in her own, she seems to think drop from the clouds or pretends so to think." Yep, none so blind as those who don't want to see. Moreover it's rather sad that, in terminating himself, he put her and all the kids [including the employee's] through unwanted and undeserved scrutiny . And, while US American employees have infinitely more rights and options than do slaves[how I wish I could say slavery is entirely past tense in this world], it would be next to impoossible to imagine this extramarital relationship to have been a partnership of equals. Lastly, I can't say I was ever a fan of his. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 20, 2011, 12:39 pm

Robin Williams - Celebrities
He's a talented man, but sometimes he can be a bit much for me. I think he actually does a great job as a dramatic actor and I also think his stand-up comedy is very funny as well. I'm less thrilled with his comedy films (though The Birdcage was great and he did a fabulous job as the voice of the genie in Aladdin.) -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 20, 2011, 10:48 am

Miss America Pageant - Random Topics
Beauty pageants are the lamest competitions ever devised by the human mind. They seek to make virtues of attention-whoredom and narcissism. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 20, 2011, 3:57 am

Cigarettes - Random Topics
I'm not into anti-smoking nazism by any stretch, but I would appreciate it if more smokers had the sense not to blow their toxins in my face or toss their butts on my lawn. One of these days I might just have to take a golf club to one of them (and I'm not talking about a putter). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 20, 2011, 3:43 am

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
I agree with the comments about the do-gooder groups forcing the watering-down of Saturday morning TV fare. That actually started in the late '60s. The same hand-wringing goody-goodies were responsible for the de-sugaring of breakfast cereals, which began at about the same time. (Stinking bastards.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 20, 2011, 2:41 am

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
Two thoughts: One, the only complaint I ever had with The Flintstones was its use of the most annoyingly phony laugh track ever recorded. Two, is it possible Shanequia is still here under a different persona? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 20, 2011, 2:21 am

Kirk Cameron - Celebrities
Well, Lewis and Tolkien were also geniuses; each had an intellect best described as astonishing. Both the Narnia and Lord of the Rings series draw from their respective authors' very deep understanding and command of all sorts of fields - history and linguistics and comparative mythology and literary theory - as well as an impressive understanding of what makes humans think and behave as they do. (And of course both Tolkien and Lewis were masters of elegant and soaring prose.) Neither Tim LaHaye nor his coauthor Jerry Jenkins - nor Kirk Cameron, for that matter - appears to have more than an average IQ, if that, and little awareness of anything beyond their narrow dogmatism. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 20, 2011, 1:57 am

Obesity - Random Topics
I'm going to have to disagree with the majority here. Any time I go into public I see tons of morbidly obese people waddling around. The USA is said to be the fattest nation on earth. Obviously Americans are incapable of making dietary decisions on their own. The question of why Americans are so fat also needs to be answered. I have heard that "Americans are lazy" explanation and just don't buy it; I don't think our lifestyle is that much different that Europe. Personally speaking, I have no idea about nutrition and I suspect many others in my age group are the same. That's because they stopped teaching nutrition entirely in my schools sometime in the '80s to make room for AIDS/Safe Sex and Drug Education programs. There are also all sorts of weird genetically modified foods here and crap like high fructose corn syrup that are banned in other countries. All this needs to be studied and perhaps certain kinds of foods and oils need to be banned outright. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 19, 2011, 8:18 pm

Bill Clinton - Celebrities
I was not "defending France"; I was pointing out that relying on stereotypes and cliches as sources for your opinions - rather than actual knowledge - is the sort of thing easily-leed fools do. Nor would I ever vote "Never boned" on this Clinton page. I think he was an average president but not such a great human being. Like Nixon, he was a combination of a high IQ and a low character. He had a host of psychoses - I could give you about a dozen off the top of my head - and he was morally unfit for any of the offices he held. But he wasn't some flaming commie -let alone murderer - as you rightwingers were so insistent on portraying him as when he was president. And he proved able and willing to work with the Gingrich Congress on a number of issues. (His core ideology was not far-left, it was "me first", and that set him apart from the true believers like Ted Kennedy.) All you conservatives are required by your ideology (and its gurus) to demonize the guy and deny that he ever did anything positive in his life. Fine, I get it: I know how it works when you attach yourself to a sociopolitical doctrine that demands conformity of thought and speech. Your opposite numbers on the idiot left have the same requirements regarding George Bush (and Ronald Reagan), and they are no less slavishly loyal to the demands of their ideology to parrot the party line than you are to yours. And I have zero doubt that if someone had serially voted 8000 times on this page for "Boned from birth", you would not be sniveling about the dishonesty of serial voting. I respect those of you who are politically moderate and don't have any use for Clinton, because you arrived at your conclusions free of preconceived bias. I have very little respect for those of you who are from the political right and who don't have any use for anyone who isn't (and whose opinion of Clinton is therefore a product of your political dogmatism rather than of independent thought), because you are nothing more than tools. (And all through the Bush years I said the same thing to leftwingers who hated Bush. They called me a thinly-disguised rightwinger, and I'm sure some of you mutts would like to dismiss me as a thinly-disguised leftwinger. I don't give two shits if you do.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 19, 2011, 8:15 pm

I had a friend who needed to make a call regarding her computer. She could press 1 for English, or 2 for Spanish. She pressed 1 and got an Indian whose English skills were...well, if the situation weren't so serious, I'd have said "laughable". She tried calling again, this time pressing 2 for Spanish, and, miraculously, got someone who spoke English. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 19, 2011, 11:41 am

Kirk Cameron - Celebrities
C.S. Lewis was a Christian, and he didn't make "The Chronicles of Narnia" series lame. J. R. R. Tolkien was a devout Catholic, and he didn't make "The Lord of the Rings" series lame. Quite the opposite, LOTR is one of the greatest literary masterpieces of all time. It's possible to be a Christian and write good stories. Kirk Cameron should have taken lessons from these two. And Left Behind sounds bad, from what people here are saying. Anti-Catholic and antisemitic propaganda? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 19, 2011, 11:31 am

Robin Williams - Celebrities
I said this on the Arnold Schwarzenegger topic, and I'll say it here: I don't care what political leaning a person has, if you cheat on your spouse, then you're scum. End of story. How disgusting that Robin cheated on his spouse with a nanny. But it would have been great justice if that nanny turned out to have a lot of things in common with Mrs. Doubtfire... -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 19, 2011, 11:26 am

Arnold Schwarzenegger - Celebrities
I'm disappointed that he's yet another cheater. And his mistress...what a dog! I don't care what political leaning a person has, if you cheat on your spouse, then you're scum. End of story. Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch Terminator movies the same way again. But that pain pales compared to what he's put his family through. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 19, 2011, 11:21 am

Ozzy Osbourne - Music Groups
Terror- Ozzy's new album in 2010, "Scream" was probably his best effort since "No More Tears" in 1991- so I have to disagree with your comment on lack of new singing. It might actually be about the third "unboning" in his career- "Blizzard of Ozz"- 1981, and "No More Tears"- 1991 being the other musical revitalizations in the catalogue. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 19, 2011, 3:50 am

Robin Williams - Celebrities
Maybe they didn't care because Williams has a (D) next to his name rather than an (R). Or maybe because he is relentlessly PC. Or because any actor who plays a person like Patch Adams - cough cough commie cough cough - gets an automatic pass. However, I'm leaning toward the fact of his never having run for office as the key factor there. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 19, 2011, 2:12 am

Jennifer Aniston - Celebrities
Here's another case where I don't understand why a person is trashed with such enthusiasm. Is Ms Aniston the worst actor who ever lived? Is she known to be an unusually spiteful person? Does she vomit her political opinions all over us every chance she gets? Does she choose roles in movies that are calculated to spit in the faces of large segments of society? Answers: No, no, no and no. Therefore, she has done nothing at all to earn my ire. And I suspect that if some of you looked at yourselves a little more closely, you'd find that she hasn't done much to earn yours either. (Unless, of course, she personally "done you wrong" at some point in the past.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 8:21 pm

Glee - TV Shows
If there is anything in this world capable of turning me into a homophobe, it's this program. It is as alien to my TV and musical taste as a show can possibly be, yet I would be courting trouble if I were to admit this in certain public settings. (Rather like the Seinfeld episode where Kramer declines to wear the AIDS ribbon and gets tormented for it.) Look at the flak bands have gotten for expressing a lack of interest in having their music played on the show; they've practically been made out to be Nazis. The degree to which Glee is hyped is very unsettling - but I suspect it's more a matter of heterosexual guilt, and the mad urge to overcompensate for it, than anything else. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 8:02 pm

John Mellencamp - Celebrities
Pelirojo, I'm scandalized!! I'm beside myself with rage!!!How dare you!!!! LOL Hey, I'm not gonna bust your chops over a small matter of personal taste. Besides, I didn't say Mellencamp had no talent or was a bad person; I only said that he isn't my particular cup of tea. Part of it is a genre bias; I've never been into the whole heartland rock thing. (And not only because it's so TV-commercial-friendly.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 7:33 pm

Sons of Anarchy - TV Shows
It's still the best show on TV, even with its faults. Season 2 was the best. Season 3 was weighed down a bit by misdirection and too much emphasis on the missing baby story arc, but ended with a bang. Can't wait for Season 4. -- Submitted By: (MyWordIsGospel) on May 18, 2011, 5:11 pm
