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.

God - Random Topics
Yada yada yada. The same people who say God doesn't exist are the ones who blame God for everything. Anyone else think that's weird? Or doesn't make sense? I also love how these people attribute behavior to God (who doesn't exist remember) while ignoring or enabling the same behavior that humans display 24/7 right in front of them. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 1, 2010, 7:11 pm

It's not just the noise / nuisance factor ... the name sounds like it should refer to a female body part! If I didn't know any different and heard a guy saying he got a vuvuzela, I'd be inclined to ask if it was the result of surgery or a purchase from an "adult" gift shop. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 1, 2010, 6:34 pm

Speaking of Vuvuzelas, while I was watching the World Series, I thought I saw somebody holding one (although I could be wrong). Anyway, I agree with Mythigator. I can understand why someone would blow them when someone scores, but why blow them the ENTIRE game? -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 1, 2010, 6:07 pm

Pac-Man (video game series) - Random Topics
Pac-Man was the game that made me into a gamer long ago - I first played it at a roller-skating place in San Diego when I was a lad of 5. I was taking a break from skating when Mom gave me a quarter and I played. I had so much fun that I always asked for a quarter if the place we were shopping had a video game. One of my favorite songs of all time was because of how popular Pac-Man was - I'm talking about Pac-Man Fever by Buckner & Garcia. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 1, 2010, 9:13 am

God - Random Topics
Pick any newspaper, look at the headlines and tell me there is an all caring compassionate god. I think not. The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: ...

Anime - Random Topics
The reason I got into anime because during the Golden Age of anime (70s through early '90s), these cartoons were light-years ahead of the crap cartoons we Americans were getting at the time. Most American cartoons were formulaic, cheap, dumbed down, and boring as not to offend any busybody parents groups. Anime respected kids' intelligence and faced issues head-on instead of trying to shelter kids from reality. When an anime did make it to US shores, even in edited form, it was a godsend. In the early '90s the AKIRA boom brought a lot of more mature titles over to the US home video market. I loved how the Japanese pushed the animation format to new boundaries, the political incorrectness, and cultural differences. I think it all fell apart in the late '90s with the Pokemon boom. This show got so huge that everyone started to rip it off-- every new show for awhile was based on kids collecting animals or playing card games. The Japanese also got self conscious about internationalization and started dumbing down anime from the beginning for international audiences. Meanwhile American cartoons had gotten smarter and better while anime got worse. Now when you say "anime" to most Westerners they think of that kiddie schlock instead of greats like Yamato or Gundam. The recent moe trend I know little about, but it certainly isn't encouraging. It seems like every new anime title now is either some schlock based on a card or video game or something for perverted losers. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 31, 2010, 5:06 pm

SimCity - Random Topics
How to get a Megalopolis: It's been a while since I played, but IIRC, you can get one by creating LOTS of industrial zones. You can do this by designating one very large area (away from Residential or Commercial zones) to be all Industrial Zones. A landmass totally separated from the R and C zones by a river is perfect. First, build your city as normal, leaving the landmass alone for now (except to put a power plant there, away from people), and keeping the current I zones at least 6 or 9 squares away from R zones on the North, South, West, and East sides (the cursor is 1 square, and each zone is a 3x3 square). This includes rail or road, which each take 1 square. It's OK to place C zones between R and I zones. Try to keep the number of rail or roads minimum, while making sure each zone can be accessed by road or rail on at least one side. Make sure all roads and rails are connected to each other. When the zones are built up, start building I zones on the landmass (remember that pollution extends enough to affect the zones on the other side, unless they are 6 or 9 squares away (the river's width included). Use your cursor to measure how far the closest R zone is from the proposed I zone, and plan accordingly (if it's too close to an R zone, that's where you can build a police station instead). Make sure each I zone can be accessed by road or rail on at least one side (I prefer rail, as roads make too many problems). Ignore the complaints of pollution, but make sure there are enough police stations around the I zones, as crime will reduce the population. After some time, you should get a Megalopolis. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 29, 2010, 11:09 am

I enjoyed SimCity on the SNES greatly, but no matter how hard I tried, I just could NOT make Megalopolis, either in a standard game or that scenario where it's 100% land and no water anywhere. The best I could do was a population of about 432,000 - then the ugly head of pollution vs. unemployment would arise and nothing I could do would satisfy the citizens. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 28, 2010, 8:50 pm

Nice try Mego! This toy was a "poor man's G.I. Joe." One year, my brother wanted a G.I. Joe. That's what he asked for: A G.I. Freaking Joe. He opened up the box in great anticipation of all the GI Joe missions he'd now be able to join me on- only to find in the box- An Action Jackson. Talk about the air coming out of your tires. That was the hiss heard 'round the world. Just to give you some perspective, for a young American boy in the 70's, getting a G.I. Joe was a big deal. The only modern analogy for GI Joe vs Action Jackson I can come up for is this. Imagine you're about 7 or 8 years old and you've been asking for LEGOS all year. Finally, the package arrives and the day comes when you open it up only to find- not LEGOS but MEGA-BLOCKS. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 20, 2010, 3:29 pm

Any idiot can go to college, they'll literally let anyone in as long as they can pay somehow.

I have to disagree about this so-called "obesity epidemic". I don't see any more overly large people now than I did 15-20 years ago. Don't let the media brainwash you, being 5-10 pounds overweight is NOT "obese". My gripe (besides all the others I've listed that is) is that this was the decade of superfluous change for the sake of change that never actually made anything better and often made things worse, while utterly refusing to change anything that really needed it. It's insane. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 18, 2010, 6:13 pm

2000s - Random Topics
I was a child of the 80s, teen of the 90s if it's relevant to my views and perspective. I think we also need to remember that our views are often based on our own personal nature, the people with which we grew up and how they influenced our views, where we grew up etc. Two people of the same age could easily have vastly different standards when it comes to when they feel they should have achieved various life type goals (e.g., moving out, getting married, having kids etc.) If the problem of too many people living at home into adulthood is indeed the 'kids' being lazy and uninspired, who is to blame? The kids for being that way or some other external factor making them way and/or allowing it to happen? Don't forget that the lousy job market also in some cases had people that we never able to move out because they could never find a good enough job to afford to move out. However, I think the 2000s also became an excuse decade. By that I mean it used to be that we'd see adversity as something to overcome. Now, people seem to use it as an excuse. As an example, how often have you heard of someone with some sort of mental issue use it as an excuse for bad behaviour? Now, I don't mean to offend with that example, I'm just using an example based on stuff I've witnessed. The staying at home example could be using a lack of income or sufficient income as an excuse rather then perhaps having to find housing that while perhaps is not what one wants, seeing it as having to suck it up and it being unpleasant perhaps being the price one pays to be independent or at least as incentive to improve. I think the end of the 80s saw the end of the playing outside era. Although, the expression "in general" indeed comes to mind. I still for example, see plenty of kids playing outside. However, the temptation to play video games or engage in Internet related activities literally all day is unfortunately there (for adults as well). To be honest, a lot of the problems we've been seeing go to extreme levels in the past decade started in the 90s. Agreed on the politics thing. I mean, I remember Regan and Bush Sr. I never had a problem with them. I don't remember it being until Bush Jr. and post 9/11 that suddenly, everyone was more interested in the parties then the candidates. As for the video games issue. Well, from various things I've read, the problem is that video games give often have a way of giving the players that same sort of satisfaction and accomplishment that comes from accomplishing real world/life goals. The problem is, with video games, that satisfaction is a mere illusion. Another issue with the 2000s is the lack of discipline. I see it not just with people and their kids but even with people and their dogs! An example being people that don't listen to leach laws and let the dogs do whatever they want to the point where the word no had become almost non-existent. I mention discipline after video games because I can't help but wonder if the prevalence of video games with teenage and kid characters that have all this freedom, power and authority (in some cases over entire worlds) and often answer to seemingly no one has given people to illusion that the kids and teens run the world and make the rules rather then the adults (who are often conveniently killed off or otherwise taken out). I wonder if that's also part of why people don't want to grow up. I think a lot these problems stem from a few main issues with the 2000s. The Internet and other technology has made life so convenient and in some cases, effort free to do a lot of stuff. When it comes to having to put some effort to accomplish something, we get all upset rather then sucking it up and saying 'no pain, no gain' or 'you get what you pay for' or some other inspiration type of quote. We've also become a society that seems afraid to put it's foot down and say enough is enough when it comes to almost anything that isn't acceptable (i.e., we're terrified to say NO). We're so afraid of offending someone (although this perhaps goes back to the PC obsession of the 90s) that we say nothing and put up with crap rather then saying even a simple 'now what just a minute here'. I don't mean offending some intentionally, I mean, protesting in a diplomatic way. The sad fact that we did it to ourselves and we're still doing it. The problem is that these problems have become the norm rather then problems to confront and overcome. It's sad and I'm not sure what we do about it. -- Submitted By: () on October 18, 2010, 5:52 pm

Also, fast food was a treat we were lucky to get once a week, typically on the weekends. People are so freakin' brain dead and stupid now that we need Michelle Obama and the NFL to tell us to get off our butts. Just pathetic. Comes down to crappy parenting. How about we add that to the list? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 18, 2010, 10:27 am

2000s - Random Topics
Kingbk, Stephanie, and Exploding Console, the idea of the Boomerang Generation" moving back home with their parents is definitely a sign of the 2000s. While it is true that it can be very difficult to find a job due to being over or under qualified, it seems that there are too many people who are moving back in with their parents at the drop of a hat when there is any sort of a setback. I have been asked countless times if I was going to. You also see lots of people who live with their parents to save up and buy a hose which I think is pathetic. If you can't afford to buy a house until you are 40 so be it. That kind of behavior represents a dumbing down of society. I think in general video games have caused the worst dumbing down; although that started in the 90s in earnest. Kingbk, you mentioned the political extremists on both sides. That is also a sign of the 2000s. I don't remember the 90s being that bad (this was when I was in junior high/high school) and I don't remember even hearing the words liberal or conservative so much as I've heard since the 2000 election. It seems like ever since then you hear them all the time. I was too young in the 80s to remember much politics other than I knew Reagan and Bush were presidents at that time. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 17, 2010, 10:04 pm

ExplodingConsole, you're right. I'm not talking about people that are unemployed or lost their job against their own will. I have friends who are very hard workers who don't have a job now and had to move back home to get on their feet. That's okay and understandable. I'm talking about people who could grow up and should grow up and don't and how society today makes it seem okay. I'm all about following your dreams, but sitting on your butt playing video games in your parents basement day after day is NOT following your dreams. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 16, 2010, 10:56 am

2000s - Random Topics
Don't forget that the lousy job market of the 2000s has contributed to a lot of people that are unemployed not by choice. That and the poor job market also forced a lot of people into low paying jobs that do not pay enough to allow them to afford to pay rent. That has accounted for a lot of people living at home when they should be independent. However, I have a feeling that you mean something that goes beyond that. I'm getting the feeling that you're talking more about the idea of society in general just not wanting to grow up. The question is, what's causing this? Why are we as a society becoming so afraid to act our age? And I don't mean acting old. What's interesting/funny is that, I remember someone on the Scottish site (I forget the topic) using the example of the cereal commercials with the adults in the shadows saying they enjoy some kids cereals but have to be in the closet bout it. I seem to remember the poster blaming Tony the Tiger encouraging those adults to come out and admit it seems to be what started this whole refusing to grow up trend. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 16, 2010, 1:59 am

It's really tough for me to describe this network without having to go into cussing. Another favorite network ruined by removing classics and replacing them with craptoons and live-action.

Sci Fi Network - Random Topics
This used to be one of my favorite networks. They used to have so many good shows such as MST3000, Incredible Hulk, Lost in Space, Land of the Giants, Gigantor, Transformers, Darkshadows, Farscape, Lexx, Sliders, Twilight Zone, X-Files, etc. And they used to have an actual schedual as opposed to all day marathons. They used to show classical sci-fi/horror movies. Now everything is crap. This network needs to either go back to the way it used to be or be pulled off the air and whoever is responsible for all the changes needs to be shot in the crotch. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on October 15, 2010, 8:36 pm

Austin, Texas - Random Topics
One of the few places in Texas I can tolerate. Nice city, fun nightlife, good weather, great educational system, lots of big companies close by, nice geography. Yeah, the high number of hippie burnouts and deadbeats is annoying, but not to the point of never returning. I'd definitely consider Austin a place to move to in the future. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 15, 2010, 5:02 pm

2000s - Random Topics
Stephanie, I agree completely with your comment. I think a big reason why there are so many young adults that are delaying marriage, staying with their parents longer, and unemployed is because of laziness. It's not because they are "finding themselves" or whatever. Let's call a spade a spade. They are lazy, feel entitled, and will live rent free, job free, with the laundry done and their meals made as long as they are able to. It's sick and liberal media like NY Times make it sound like something good because they are "not settling, but reaching out for something special." Give me a break! If you did that 20 years ago, you'd be a laughing stock and would have little respect from people. Our society has gotten so soft and passive-aggressive that now it's okay to be lazy because you're "finding yourself." I call BS on it. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 15, 2010, 2:30 pm

Cartoon Network - Random Topics
Even though Hole in the Wall is actually a pretty entertaining show (not to mention it would be better than basically all of the shows CN has made since the logo change), it just doesn't belong on Cartoon Network. That's why we have GSN, to broadcast game shows. In the meantime, the smoldering pile of crap that is Cartoon Network needs to start producing creative, interesting shows of ITS OWN in order to start climbing out of the massive hole they've dug themselves into ever since they got rid of everything they had that was worth watching. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 15, 2010, 2:08 pm

Skip this and get Boomerang if you can. However, since it's a sister channel to CN, it has advertisements for CN's lineup. Guess what I saw? Commercials for Hole in the Wall, a game show. Yes, you read right: a GAME SHOW! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 15, 2010, 10:21 am

When Cartoon Network started in with the live-action stuff is when they boned. Hello! McFly! Anybody home?! It's called CARTOON Network for a reason, meaning live-action is OUT OF THE QUESTION. It went the way of MTV - an all-music-video channel became an all-reality-show channel. Makes me think those who run Cartoon Network and MTV both have sewage for brains and the decision-makers aren't much better. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 14, 2010, 7:38 pm

It's sad but true, ScottyB. In my junior year of high school (1992-93), there was a girl on my school bus who got pregnant and had the kid. While I'm struggling to make ends meet, she's probably living off the government teat and sucking it drier than the Atacama Desert. Ugh. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 14, 2010, 7:31 pm

Definitely, the prevalence of the "half-assed" attitude. I recently saw a job posting on craiglist that said: "Do not apply if you are over-qualified!" And the job description was calling for someone of extensive experience! What happened to wanting the best person for the job? Nowadays, it's as if the less you have going for you, the more you fit in. Why try? Just roll out of bed in the morning and slide through life. No goals, no effort, no self-improvement.... -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on October 14, 2010, 6:47 pm

Oh boy, don't even get me started on the teen pregnancies in school nowadays. This girl that was in my Spanish class last year was already pregnant with her second child! The point is, it's actually sort of depressing to see these kinds of people walking around, because these lazy, irresponsible whores (sorry to put it that way, but it's true) will be feeding off my tax dollars when I'm out in the real world actually trying to make something of myself. Simply sickening... -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 14, 2010, 1:03 pm

Homework - Random Topics
Homework is SUPPOSED to refresh you with what you learned earlier in the day, but it doesn't take a detective to understand that it does far more harm than good. First of all, the amount of homework assigned to students at ANY grade level is far too much. As if assigning hours of homework a night isn't enough, some teachers (and this is what pisses me of more than anything) assign homework over vacation time, with Christmas break being one example. I can just imagine a typical high school kid over Christmas break: "Come on, let's go to your grandma's house for dinner." "Nah, I have to stay here and DO MY HOMEWORK." I find homework to be a negative, detracting nuisance that hinders students rather than helping them like it was intended to do. If the schools passed a law that banned homework, I sure wouldn't miss it. Good riddance, and don't let the door hit you on the way out. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 14, 2010, 12:58 pm
