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.

The ads are annoying in the extreme, no doubt. All the same, I've gotta give some props to these folks for having the sense of humor to poke fun at themselves in later ads: "Head On! I hate your commercials, but I love your product!" -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 11, 2010, 8:50 am

BigAl, I think Cartoon Network currently holds that title. Nickelodeon might be pretty bad, but I'd rather watch SpongeBob and Fairly OddParents over Adventure Time and The Regular Show. As for those "tween" shows like iCarly and Victorious, however....no, thank you. (On that note, does it appear to anyone else that Dan Schneider is to Nickelodeon what Seth MacFarlane is to Fox? Think about it.) That being said, the network needs improvement. I only really watch the channel for Nick at Nite anyway. It's better than anything else on the network. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on November 10, 2010, 6:05 pm

Nickelodeon. You'll never find a more wretched hive of garbage and unwatchable crap.

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
At least Viacom had the decency to remove the "Music Television" tagline from the logo this past year. If you look at it now, it's gone. I was born in the mid 80s, so I remember the different phases of MTV, from it's new wave/Michael Jackson phase to it's post hair-metal/grunge phase to it's post-grunge/bevis and butthead/Singled Out phase to screw the college aged audience, we're going for teens/TRL/bubble gum pop phase to screw music we're the one stop shop for trashy television phase. Haven't really watched a full show in probably five plus years on the channel. Last thing I watched was the tribute to Michael Jackson because surprisingly MTV played videos, had news reports and VJs that seemed into the music. What a concept! Too bad it only lasted two-three days. If I need a music video fix, I either check out Fuse or look up different videos online. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 9, 2010, 5:21 pm

These online advertisements are just better mice built against better mousetraps. They created pop-up ads. Pop-up blockers are created, so they find a way to override the pop-up blockers.

@PYLrulz: Something similar to that happens here in Nevada (which I would like to mention is the state with the highest unemployment rate). Roughly 90% of the population live in either the Las Vegas metro area or the Reno metro area, and if the two state counties that have those two cities vote support of a law, while every other county in the state votes against it, the law would pass because most of Nevada's population is either in Vegas or Reno. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 9, 2010, 6:25 am

Nintendo (company) - Random Topics
I voted Gamecube, but would say Nintendo was at its best in the 80s and 90s. From 1985-1990, NES WAS the game system of choice. No one was even close. All the best games were for the NES and everyone who owned a video game system owned an NES. The Super Nintendo had competition against the Sega Genesis, but the SNES still had superior graphics and sound. For a while, we thought Genesis was better for it's "blast processing" and sports titles, but eventually we learned and knew what the better system was. SNES on its own was great with games like Donkey Kong Country and Chrono Trigger, and Genesis tried to catch up with the terrible Sega CD and the even worse 32x but dug it's own grave. The Nintendo 64 started showing kinks in the armor. Super Mario 64 and Zelda were amazing, but Superman 64 might be the worst game ever and Playstation started catching up. By the beginning of 2000, Nintendo was no longer the mega giant in video gaming it once was. Sony and Microsoft caught up and passed them by. The Wii is fun and everyone still enjoys the latest Mario/Zelda games, but it's definitely not the same. Nintendo 64 started the decline and Gamecube accelerated it. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 3, 2010, 11:53 pm

I grew up in the church and have seen it with my own eyes, so I'm not just saying it.

The "unpleasant character" quote comes from Richard Dawkins. He is another intolerant atheist like Bill Maher and Christopher Hitchens. Anyone can cherry pick from the Bible to portray God as a cruel "tyrant", overlooking examples of him being benevolent and just. And yes, Dolfan, I think it's amusing how these people who vehemently don't believe in God suddenly believe in him when they need a scapegoat. Also, you don't need to be a religious fanatic to do terrible things. Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot did not believe in God. But that didn't stop them from killing and torturing millions of people. If you eliminate religion, it won't bring world peace or end war...people will just kill each other in the name of something else. In fact, most do already. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 2, 2010, 1:02 pm

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

HA!!! PREACH IT, BRUTHAS!!! Hell, even in baseball the Yankees didn't reach the World Series this year. I even heard last week that CONTRACTION is being considered. (That means teams being eliminated, the opposite of expansion.) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 27, 2010, 6:26 pm

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - Random Topics
Hmmm...punching ACLU members in the face doesn't seem like such a bad idea >:-D Seriously, they ought to rename themselves the Fomenters Of Evil (FOE) and be done with it. And the best part is, if I DID punch an ACLU member in the face, what could they do? They openly support criminals, right? :-) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 27, 2010, 6:23 pm

National Basketball Association (NBA) - Random Topics
Exactly, kingbk. There is absolutely no parity in this league, and the same few teams are really the only ones that compete for titles anyway. I don't even understand why Milwaukee, Indiana, Golden State, New Jersey, and Minnesota still have franchises. There's no sense in playing a game you realistically have no shot at winning. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 26, 2010, 7:29 pm

National Basketball Association (NBA) - Random Topics
The new NBA season starts today and already Minnesota, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Toronto, Golden State, New Jersey and Indiana have pretty much been eliminated from making the playoffs. You already know only 4 teams really have a chance at the title this year. No other league in college or pro sports is that predictable or that divided between the weak and the strong. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 26, 2010, 2:26 pm

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - Random Topics
The ACLU wouldn't know what's good for America if it walked up to them and punched them in the face. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 22, 2010, 6:44 pm

National Public Radio - Random Topics
Wow, NPR fired Juan Williams for not towing the liberal line strong enough! http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130712737 -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 21, 2010, 7:49 pm

Subway (Restaurant) - Random Topics
As others have said, of course it's healthy. There's almost no meat in their sandwiches. Very little taste either. We usually go to Quiznos now for subs. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on October 21, 2010, 7:36 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
It's the media jumping on something to be self righteous about... for a while it was the battle against smoking, then it was the battle against global warming, now that is slowly fading away and now it's obesity and gay rights stuff... give it a few years and it'll be something else. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 21, 2010, 5:28 pm

Homework - Random Topics
Sometimes, I get the feeling every teacher thinks their subject(s) is/are the most important and heap on the homework to the point it's impossible to do a good job on anything. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:42 pm

Tattoos - Random Topics
Cost and health concerns aside, what keeps me from getting a tat is I don't know what design to get. I've ruled out sports team logos and band names because my loyalties may change years later. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:40 pm

Peanuts (comic strip) - Random Topics
Peanuts was a staple of my comic-reading in my youth - I still like it to this day. R.I.P. Sparky, you touched many with Peanuts. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:35 pm

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
@JayD - the feet changed size/shape sometime after the first Garfield special (Here Comes Garfield) aired. It was Charles Schulz's idea to make Garfield's feet bigger and Jim Davis ran with it (read about it in one of the Garfield anniversary books). -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:34 pm

Parallel Parking - Random Topics
Parallel parking is a big WTF for me as well. Something I seldom (if ever) have done since I got my drivers' license. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:30 pm

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
Never boned. I was gutted when C&H came to an end, but I guess Watterson did the right thing in bowing out while he was ahead. I mean, there are only so many jokes/gags one can do involving a 6-year-old boy with an overactive imagination regarding school, home, whatever before it gets stale. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:28 pm

National Enquirer - Random Topics
"Men don't read the Enquirer, they don't read nothing that says 'I had a UFO baby'. Men say, 'Good, wasn't mine!" - Gallagher -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:25 pm

Screamer videos - Random Topics
I encountered a couple of these and frankly, I don't see what the hell is supposed to be funny about these damn things. Day one suckage, pure and simple. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:20 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
Calling obesity an "epidemic"? Puh-leeze. *facepalm* It is NOT a disease, FFS! I don't see more fat people these days than I did 15-20 years ago. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:18 pm

Albertsons - Random Topics
There used to be a couple of Albertsons stores in my area, but they became Rowe's and then went belly-up. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 21, 2010, 1:12 pm

Action Jackson (Toy) - Random Topics
...and now- the rest of the story. My brother discovered that Action Jackson made a great chew toy for our German Shepherd. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 21, 2010, 9:57 am

Action Jackson (Toy) - Random Topics
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
