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.

D-Generation X - Random Topics
I belive that is a no, as at first, she was, in the storyline, married against her will (Triple H hitching up while she was passed out drunk), then when she stuck with Triple H in the storyline, he was out of DX by that time.

PYLrulz, you are right about DX09 were reformed just to sell stuff. They couldn't do much with the watered down of WWE but I think also because Shawn Michael is a Christian but he and HHH is still funny neverless. But having DX as a tag-team wasn't the same to me as having as a 4-men or 5-men group back in the attitude years with Chyna, Shawn Michaels, HHH, X-Pac, Road Dogg, and Mr. Ass. I got a question though, was Stephaine Mcmahon was offically a DX member also since she was married to HHH back then? (Keyfabe Married I meant back then before they got married in real life of course.) -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 9, 2011, 6:04 pm

Well, okay, Pelirojo, you've forced my hand. My only beef with Louisiana is the profound level of political corruption that has characterized the place for almost its entire history. Some residents, and many outsiders, seem to think this is one of the state's more endearing charms; I do not. I agree with you about the culture, and some of the music is decent. But as long as the folks who live there put up with - let alone keep electing - leaders who in a perfect world would be sitting in jail cells, the state will continue to rank at or near the bottom in a host of quality-of-life indicators until the Sun burns out - and I will always be less than enthusiastic about donating to relief efforts there, as I can never be sure that the money is going where it's supposed to go (as opposed to some dumb-fuck congressman's freezer). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 12:18 am

Pluto (Dwarf Planet) - Random Topics
I like my solar systems to have nine planets. Every other known one does (or at least, is supposed to). If this is what science is being used for, to arbitrarily say Pluto's not a planet after all after decades of saying it was, then science isn't very useful these days. Instead of demoting Pluto why don't you scientists live up to your smugness (God doesn't exist because we have SCIENCE and anyone who disagrees is a knuckle-dragging moron!) and get to work on the MANY incurable diseases out there and finding an alternate fuel source to replace oil. Hell, it's been over 40 years since man landed on the moon, that's more than enough time to have sent people to Mars by now. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 5, 2011, 2:33 am

Pluto (Dwarf Planet) - Random Topics
Instead of demoting Pluto, I am unclear as to why the astronomy community did not hold to the earlier definition of a planet and accept Pluto and Eris and Ceres and the other so-called dwarf planets as full-fledged planets. Had they done so, we would now be talking about 13 definite planets and perhaps as many as 60 other potential planets extending out to 8 billion or so miles from the sun. The recently decided-upon criterion that a full planet must have enough mass to "clear" its orbital neighborhood of smaller bodies seems kind of arbitrary. (Besides, neither Earth nor Mars, nor even Jupiter, has cleared its orbital zone.) I say the more planets, the better. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 4, 2011, 11:33 pm

Pluto (Dwarf Planet) - Random Topics
I still consider Pluto a planet. It's neat how it trades places with Neptune for 8th or 9th planet. I think the reason for its demotion was because of the other dwarf planets. Either welcome them, or demote Pluto. The latter was chosen. Thinking deeper, Pluto may one day cease to exist...in the future, it's bound to collide with Neptune. :( -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 4, 2011, 10:30 pm

Maskdt is correct: The mosquito has killed far more humans - indeed an order of magnitude more - than rats ever thought of doing.

Radio - Random Topics
There's nothing special or unique about radio anymore. It used to be that every city had their own shows or personalities, but now with huge conglomerations owning multiple stations, the local flavor is largely gone. In favor there is the illusion that it's local, when it's really produced in New York or Los Angeles. Add to that all stations play about five songs an hour plus tons of commercials and stations have a playlist of about ten songs total and you have many reasons why now I just take my iPod and used that for my music these days. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 31, 2011, 9:04 pm

Elmo - Random Topics
So someone submitted Elmo as a random topic. Well, Lisa Simpson has her own topic, why not Elmo? What can best be said about Elmo? He ruined Sesame Street. Lisa's motto is "I am always right", but Elmo's motto is: "PAY ATTENTION TO ME!" Who's more annoying? I say Elmo, and here are some reasons. 1: Because he's front and center when it comes to Sesame Street merchandise. For Simpsons merchandise, it's usually Homer or Bart, not Lisa. 2: In most situations, you can ignore Lisa's soap-boxing, and she's mostly ignored by the other characters. You can't really do the same for Elmo, who demands your attention for the last 15-20 minutes of Sesame Street. The added bonus? This doesn't stop Elmo from appearing in the first 40-45 minutes of the episode, usually with Abby Kadabby and Baby Bear. 3: Lisa doesn't put her name in every sentence. Elmo says "Elmo this" and "Elmo that" when talking about himself. 4: Elmo ruined Sesame Street. I know I said that before, but it's really that important. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 31, 2011, 12:15 pm

I have, and they probably HAVE called back sometime later in spite of it. One company calls almost every day at about 6:15 p.m., in spite of the things I tell the rep on the rare occasions I answer the phone. (It's my bank, or rather the massive corporation that owns my bank; they want to offer me a home equity line of credit, despite my never having applied for one. They always mispronounce my name too. Sometimes they will also offer me a service I already have with them, which tells me that the various departments of the corporation are not communicating with each other very well - or, more likely, that they just don't give a shit. The first dozen times they called, I politely asked them not to call me any more. That was at least fifty calls ago.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 30, 2011, 3:57 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
I haven't watched the Simpsons in some time to be honest. As for Bart being a jerk, remember the vacation episode where Bart embarrassed Lisa in front of the new friends she made. He did it because he was jealous of her, he felt she was a nerd and was faking being cool or, I dunno, some other reason that seemed logical at the time but was in reality stupid. Granted, he felt genuinely bad when he realized he'd hurt her. Yes, he took action to fix things but it still, his initial actions were wrong. Or, in the Thanksgiving episode where Bart ruined Lisa's centrepiece, didn't care and got all upset when the adults yelled at time. He eventually ran away, still not seeing the error of his ways. It wasn't until Lisa finally sat him down and talked him that he saw it from her point of view, realized what a jerk he'd been and apologized. Granted, teaching someone to not do bad things out of 'how would you feel if someone did that to you?' is worlds better then making them not do it out of fear of someone retaliating. And yes, Lisa also felt terrible when Bart ran away. IIRC, feeling that it wasn't worth losing her brother over a centrepiece, even when he was in the wrong. In the Science Fair episode, remember that Lisa did make her experiment "Is my brother dumber then a Hamster?". Although Bart did ruin her previous experiment, so, he kinda deserved it. Also remember in the episode where Bart lost out on the trip the chocolate factory, Lisa was smug about Bart missing out on the bus and even felt he deserved to miss out on the trip. Her attitude was it was the only way he'll learn. I don't recall him doing anything to her in that episode. One thing I've noticed about Lisa vs Bart. When Bart is the villain, it's usually more sibling rivalry stuff. The kinda stuff one looks back at as an adult and wants to smack themselves for doing. I think part of the issue with Lisa is that we're supposed to sympathize with Bart, even when he's a jerk. So, when he's a jerk, we cringe at how he can be such a jerk. However, they don't glorify it. They take the attitude that he's being a jerk and it's wrong. With Lisa, they've turned her into the annoying teenager (even though she's a kid) that's learned a bit about environmental stuff etc. that demands we do things the way she think is right. She doesn't take into consideration that if changing things for the better were so easy and worked just as well as the bad for the environment ways that we'd have all done it by now. However, as I've said before and want to elaborate, Lisa is also the victim here. They're using her as a puppet for those views. Btw, is there any way to get paragraphs working? Posts would look much better if they weren't all one big block of text. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 30, 2011, 3:54 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
People still watch because...I don't know. I stopped watching regularly around 2000, vowing never to watch a new episode again after "That 90s Show". You know, I did some deep thinking after reading these comments. I come to the conclusion that maybe it's not Lisa we hate, but instead, we hate what she's become. As ExplodingConsole pointed out, Bart can be a jerk too. After ruining her babysitting service, Bart apologized, and I remember thinking, "That's nice, but saying you're sorry isn't going to bring back Lisa's babysitting service." But all was forgiven when she got two calls asking for her help. Before that, Bart ruined her science fair project (I know, who can resist throwing a tomato that size at the principal's butt when he's bending over?) then hijacked her hamster experiment and took first prize. I felt bad for her. When an aptitude test pegged her as a homemaker, she went bad, then stole the teachers' editions. Bart had a great chance to turn his life around, but took the fall so Lisa could have a bright future. This was possibly the biggest sacrifice Bart ever made for Lisa, and I felt bad for him. But at least Bart becomes chief justice of the supreme court when he grows up. Lisa's not the only one who's taken a turn for the worse: while she's gotten self-righteous, Bart went from a menace with some good in him to a jerk who's almost as stupid as Homer. Homer's gone from a dopey dad who at least cared for his family to a selfish jerk and a complete idiot. The reason Lisa's singled out is because her holier-than-thou attitude is more annoying than stupidity. Nobody likes a mouthpiece character, which includes Brian from Family Guy. We want to be entertained, not told what to think! Marge and Maggie are the only ones who haven't really changed. For now... And PYLrulz, you're right: I think the only time South Park refused to see the other side of the issue--and rightfully so--was the NAMBLA episode. When the leader says he "learned something today", Kyle replies: "Dude..you tried to have sex with children!"

Smoking-pill suicides overlooked in missing reports Hundreds of reports of suicides, psychotic reactions and other serious problems tied to the popular stop-smoking drug Chantix were left out of a crucial government safety review because Pfizer Inc., the drug’s manufacturer, submitted years of data through “improper channels.” Some 150 suicides — more than doubling those previously known — were among 589 delayed reports of severe issues turned up in a new analysis by the non-profit Institute for Safe Medication Practices. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 28, 2011, 3:16 am

Chick Tracts - Random Topics
Apparently I've lived a sheltered life because I've never heard of these things before now. They seem to beg the question of how to evaluate their fish-boning status. If taken as a serious evangelizing aid, it's probably fair to say they boned from the moment of their creation. (Has anyone actually converted to Mr Chick's odd strain of Christianity as a result of reading them?) If the tracts are taken as the sort of unintentionally amusing propaganda that characterizes, say, the film Reefer Madness, I'd say they provide too many chuckles to have boned. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 28, 2011, 1:41 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
There are two trains of argument on this board. One, that the character has become excessively, irritatingly strident and self-righteous over the years; and two, that these traits are being spun in a positive way by the show's producers because she is voicing their own views. From what little of the show I see these days, I can see plenty of evidence to support the first claim, and rather little to support the second (at least insofar as the more sharply leftwing stances are presented as how we viewers ought to think). And if the second claim were in fact accurate, the fault rightly belongs with the producers rather than with their mouthpiece character. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 27, 2011, 7:35 pm

I consider myself fairly left when it comes to environmentalism and far-left when it comes to animal rights-- and she even annoys me at times. I think it's the snobbish arrogance that she frequently displays. It's not always political.

Remember though with the wacking day episode, Bart helped as well. Remember that it was Bart that pointed out the inconsistencies in the history books that proved that wacking day was a sham. And yes, Bart was acting like a jerk (beyond jerk) in the babysitting episode. While I can understand why he was so upset, it doesn't make his actions right or acceptable. He was justified in his indignation. However, acting as he acted only served to show that he *really* needed a babysitter. Notice however that when Bart goes with Lisa as an equal that his behaviour and intellect are often considerably better. Also don't forget what Bart did in the episode where Lisa was rebelling and took the teachers copies of the text books. I've also noticed that there is one word that can often sum up why Bart misbehaves when he misbehaves: Homer. Notice that when Lisa uses her indignation and morals for good and Bart is on her side and they work together that they make a pretty kick-ass team? Then again, Homer is the same guy that said "Bart can kiss my hairy yellow butt" when Marge expressed worry that Bart would be jealous of Lisa (i.e., when Lisa was born. Homer also declared Lisa to be wave of the future when her intelligence was blooming. When Bart was at the same time starting to have issues, Homer took an attitude of writing Bart off as a failure. Bart Simpson strikes me as the kind of person that could be a good kid. Heck, he could be a damn good and smart kid (let's just forget that Simpson gene garbage they came up with in that one episode) if it wasn't for bad influences like Homer and the bullies. Lisa in encouraged to be the best she can be while Bart is encouraged to be an ass. Notice that in early episodes, they had Bart and Lisa being successful as an adult? Later ones have Bart being more of a failure and Lisa more successful. Perhaps the problem with Lisa isn't Lisa per say. It's that they're making Bart and Homer look increasingly worse to make Lisa look better. Everyone has become caricatures of themselves. Lisa is a victim of the same issue Homer is once you get down to it. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 27, 2011, 12:56 pm

Lisa wasn't always bad, but they made her that way. She used to be the voice of reason, just like Marge. I think another reason people resent Lisa could stem from once liking her as the voice of reason and seeing she's de-evolved into a crazed activist. Stan and Kyle (usually) don't ram their ideas down the viewers' throats, they just "learned something today". Speaking of South Park, I see a comparison between Lisa's vegetarianism vs the South Park boy's vegetarianism: Lisa ruins Homer's BBQ, the boys steal calves from a veal farm. Both Lisa and the boys disrespect their parents (Stan even tells his parents to "kiss [his] ass"). Lisa's still a vegetarian, the boys stopped after Stan got sick from it. Lisa was never punished for what she had done. The boys, however, were punished despite "learning something today". When it comes to their opinions, Lisa is hyper-left, while the boys are more balanced. If they were to suddenly tilt hyper-right, there's a good chance they'd be hated as much as Lisa. Perhaps more so. Also, considering how awful the Simpsons had gotten in the past decade--and STILL being kept on the air--it's not hard to see why people have more respect for Parker and Stone than they do for Groening. When Parker and Stone do an episode with a political message, I hear: "Here's what we think about it. If you don't agree with us, OK, fine." Unlike Lisa, in which disagreeing with her means you are "wrong, wrong, WRONG!" -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 27, 2011, 12:38 pm

Lisa can have some good points and a good reason to complian or protest like the time Marge was in the hospital and Bart and Homer is too lazy so Liza tricked them to believe they were sick because they never done housework. Or the time when she babysat Bart and Bart is acting like a jerk (even though it was funny), or when she wanted to create a doll to insirpe little girls to be more than to be some bimbo housewife. Also like Robert said before the wacking day episode but she is annoying when pushing her views down everyone throats like the infamous BBQ Episode with the pig or when Ned just wanted the schools to teach creativism but she doesn't want creativism at all, they were teaching both (evoltion and creativism) at least to have a comprimise and a open mind but Lisa doesn't think both should exist just one, she even wants Marge to choose one she Marge doesn't see what wrong teaching both. It backfried on Lisa however and got rid of evlovtion instead. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on May 26, 2011, 6:32 pm

I've said it before. When Parker and Stone usually portray their opinions through South Park, they are usually sensible, and anybody on the other side they are goofing on are usually the nuts to begin with anyway. Lisa on the other hand, as I have said, started out ok, but now can't stand because of her portrayal of some super left whacko at times (note, I am neither right or left when it comes to politics, so I'll get that out of the way right now) -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 26, 2011, 2:42 pm

Granted, I don't watch the show as much as I used to, so maybe I'm a bit behind the times here. But in the past, Lisa usually HAS been the voice of reason. (Except when her idealism proves unrealistic.) But then, so are Stan Marsh and Kyle Broflovski of South Park, at least by the end of each episode (when one of them gives us the "I've learned something important today" speech). How many of you who gripe at Lisa Simpson being positioned as a fount of wisdom have the same complaint about Stan and Kyle? Could it be that Parker & Stone are worthier than Groening & Brooks of feeding us their opinions because their opinions are closer to ours......? (Just a thought.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 26, 2011, 1:01 am

True, Lisa's just an annoying cartoon character, and she's supposed to be a self-righteous holier-than-thou type, but they rarely portray her as that. Most of the time, she's portrayed as a hero whose beliefs are never wrong (OK, she's RARELY wrong). It's that part which we don't appreciate: Nobody likes having other people's opinions rammed down their throats, hence why many dislike/hate Lisa. In her defense, there were times when she was right: like protesting Whacking Day and trying to find out who shot Mr. Burns. As for the future Wilma Flintstone trial, she doesn't ram her opinions down our throats. We the jury find Wilma Flintstone: Not Guilty! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 25, 2011, 9:03 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Let's face it, it is indeed true that Lisa Simpson is a fictitious character. She's a figment of the writer's imaginations. The only difference between her and any other imagined person is that they've animated and publicly displayed her. It is indeed silly to be jealous of or to dislike Lisa when everything about her is imagined. She's as smart as the writers decide she'll be for that episode. Everything she says and does is all part of a script. Perhaps we should also take another thing into consideration. If Lisa is indeed a parody of intelligent/prodigy type kids then remember that her behaviour and/or making Bart/Homer look bad in order to make Lisa look good makes Lisa look bad too. The sad fact is, Lisa is as much of a victim of being an annoying character as the other characters (and viewers) that need to put up with her crap are. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 25, 2011, 4:37 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

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

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
