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 Cowboys are playing terribly right now because Wade Phillips doesn't instill discipline in his players, therefore they make stupid, easily avoidable mistakes.

High School - Random Topics
For me, high school was rather cliquish but in retrospect, I'm glad I went through it so I'd be able to deal with cliquishness in college and the workplace! Still, I think parents need to be extra careful NEVER to tell their kids that high school's the 'best years of their lives'- because more than one depressed kid's taken that literally and seen no point in living beyond that time. Needless and tragic. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 18, 2010, 8:06 pm

High School - Random Topics
I hated high school, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. And this was in the late 80s/early 90s, when it wasn't half as bad as today. And I don't get all this college admission stressing. There was none of that in my day. I took the ACT once and never took the SAT, and nobody cared. Colleges were sending ME letters. Any idiot can go to college, they'll literally let anyone in as long as they can pay somehow. All this artificially created "competition" trying to scare kids into thinking they'll never be admitted to any college is a big, fat lie. And how many high schoolers even make grades high enough to meet these made up standards anyway? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 18, 2010, 6:27 pm

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

I like how someone added obese children as a reason. This whole "epidemic" is disgusting. How hard is it to eat right and exercise? When I was a child (back in the 80s-90s) I wanted to go outside and play with friends. Video games were like something you did on a rainy day or when you needed to rest after playing outside. 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

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

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

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

2000s - Random Topics
I've enjoyed reading these comments about our most recent decade- now completed. Here are my thoughts from an entertainment point of view. Entertainment (movies, comics, music, film, TV shows etc.) have gone from being from fewer studios/ and or production companies to many different sources and places- this has led to things a very broad mix of things that are very good- better than we have ever gotten before (see TV shows like The Shield or Mad Men/ Movies like "There will be blood" for the extreme good) to the complete crap end of the spectrum the other way (American Idol, Crap CGI pictures for families etc.) the crap has outweighed the good by a mile- so there is a perception that entertainment has gone downhill- it has for a large degree, but the good stuff is really good, and harder to find in all mediums. For the smart consumer- this is fine with me, it's easy to avoid the garbage, and you can find many gems. Now 20 years ago there was more of a median to entertainment where there were less things, and they were more or less closer in general quality, but not as much stood out as outstanding. Read the Book "Brave New World" for a great speech about the ability of the masses to understand great entertainment and how the masses are entertained by garbage. Now another focus has been remakes- I think this is because of all of the choices, we can individualize our personal entertainment much more than in the past, so to find a common touch stone, you have to go abck to when we ahd less choices- Think Evlis Presley, Star Trek, or Wizard of Oz- we all KNOW WHAT THEY ARE. Could anything be that big or widely known again? Probably not it is too fragmented with media outlets and platforms now to stick out to everyone. So the 2000's are filled with gargbage, but for the smart entertainment consumer it is a great time to be an observer- Boned for the masses , because they get screwed all the time! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 10, 2010, 5:55 pm

MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) - Random Topics
I can agree. The premise they started with is great, but to extend it to just go after alcohol consumption in general, and pretty much demonize anyone that drinks alcohol, that is just going overboard -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on October 10, 2010, 3:02 pm

Doom (Video Game) - Random Topics
Oh yeah, nothing like kicking kids who were actually studying out of the computer lab in school to spend more time setting up the LAN than actually playing the game! This game was awesome back in the day. I recently downloaded both this and Doom II from X Box Live and they are both still very satisfying to playing. Nothing like shotgunning zombie apes with horns all over their body that shoot fireballs at you. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on October 10, 2010, 10:05 am

KFC - Random Topics
When I was a teenager, the chicken was to die for. But then, I assume they changed something because now, the chicken is usually undercooked and tasteless. Sorry KFC, you lost me as a customer forever. And what pimply faced idiot decided KFC was a better name than Kentucky Fried Chicken?

2000s - Random Topics
Not only that but Internet access is now -- for lack of a better term -- much more accessible then it was in the 90s. In that case, it was definitely the proliferation of always on high speed connections that made the Internet go from hobby or novelty to the point of being a lifestyle. The Internet has also made the average person more knowledgeable because of the access to information. Plenty of people also reached life milestones in the 2000s such as graduating from school, getting married, having kids etc. So, yes, it indeed wasn't all bad. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 8, 2010, 9:46 pm

It wasn't THAT bad. You just got to wait 10-15 years then the nostalgia will kick in lol. Wait until you see what the 2010s are like, then the 2000s will seem amazing. Oh and one good thing I can think of: the internet isn't painfully slow anymore like in the 90s. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 8, 2010, 4:33 pm

2000s - Random Topics
The lazy, impersonal generation with some of the worst music, movies and TV in history. Extremists on the left (global warming, going green, etc.), extremists on the right (religion, tea party, etc.) and everyone obsessed with technology. I long for a return to the 80s-90s. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 8, 2010, 12:21 pm

Christmas - Random Topics
How can people say Christmas has boned lol? I know it's not the same as when you're a kid but it's still a good time. The holidays are the only time I see some of my family and friends. I agree it is annoying when the commercials start early. What's more frightening is that it seems to come around quicker every year. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 8, 2010, 11:23 am

2000s - Random Topics
The 2000s sucked compared to the 90s and 80s. I think the start of the 2000s was on 9/11/01. That was when terrorism became such a primary focus in our lives. Technology has been overdone as well. Movies use crappy CGI that looks very unconvincing and everyone is glued to their cell phones. Kids are getting even fatter than they were in the 90s because their asses are parked in front of the TV playing video games. The last piece of evidence the 2000s sucked can be found all over this site. Sitcoms as we know them died and were replaced by reality TV. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 8, 2010, 12:42 am

Well, the Dolphins did win a playoff game in early '01 so that was good. They haven't won a playoff game since and have only gotten to the playoffs once in the last 9 years though.

2000s - Random Topics
Oh dear lord...the worst decade in American history, and I don't see how anyone over the age of 30 can possibly disagree!!! The best thing you can say about the 2000s is that there was only ONE terrorist attack on American soil that killed thousands. Seriously, the 90s look like a freaking utopia compared to the last decade. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 5, 2010, 3:43 am

Bowl Championship Series (BCS) - Random Topics
Speaking of Boise, all the pressure is on them to run the table so that they'll at least have a chance to play in a BCS bowl. Boise is currently #4 (they were leapfrogged by a BCS team even though they beat NMSU by 59, go figure), but since they aren't from a BCS conference, they better hope they run the table to even be CONSIDERED for a shot at any big-name bowl. If they lose a game, even just ONE game this year, they might as well kiss their hopes goodbye. They probably wouldn't even be ranked anymore if they were to lose. Meanwhile, a big-name school that has the BCS kissing its feet (USC and Oklahoma, I'm looking at YOU) can lose three games in one year and still manage to keep their ranking. The sooner the BCS crumbles, the sooner we can get back to a system of college football where everyone has an equal shot at the title. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 4, 2010, 4:15 pm

1990's - Random Topics
That does it MCS, you have forced me to go on a political rant!!! j/k :-) IMO the idea of divorce became popular when after the "sexual revolution" men and women alike started asking themselves why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free, if ya know what I mean. It's casual sex that destroyed marriage as our grandparents knew it. These days it really is just better to live together without getting married, for a variety of reasons. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 3, 2010, 4:14 pm

1990's - Random Topics
I forgot to mention, the divorce rate did seem to start skyrocketing in the 80s. This is not meant to be a political statement in any way, but does anyone think it is possible that the fact that Reagan had been divorced made it more acceptable at this time? Just a thought, please don't start a political rant on it. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 3, 2010, 11:19 am

1990's - Random Topics
I say that the 90s ended on September 11th because that was when we really were into the era of George W. Bush's presidency. That single event was the very last tie that severed his administration from the Clinton administration and it was what defined the Bush administration. It seemed in general society took a very different focus than what it had before. Terrorism was even more at the forefront than what it was before and of course politically Bush's administration was much more conservative than Clinton's. I will agree that pop culture signs of the 00s were visible in 98-99; The Simpsons was tanking, boy bands were taking over, and reality TV was starting to appear (look at the FOX network). I think every decade does have a bit of a transition but I think September 11th abruptly changed the 90s into the 00s. You also cannot discount the burst of the dot com bubble in 2001. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 3, 2010, 11:18 am

1990's - Random Topics
I guess reality really is in the eye of the beholder. I don't remember divorce rates being all that bad until the past 10-20 years. But, like everything, perhaps some areas have higher rates then others. As well, it could be that I'm now simply more aware of it. I graduated HS in 1997 (though from a five year system). One could classify my generation as being the next generation after yours. Although, to be honest, I think I relate more to Gen X then to Gen Y. Though in some ways, I feel caught right in the middle. Sort of, feeling not cool enough for Gen X but not haven grown up surrounded with tech to the extreme people perceive with Gen Y. The mid-late 90s were a lot different from the early 90s. The one thing I associate with the early 90s was the whole PC movement. I think the Internet growing more popular in the mid-late 90s was what really got the tech obsessed ball rolling and ushered in a sort of second 90s era. People started getting more knowledgeable but perhaps some loss of innocence accompanied that knowledge. The Internet growing in popularity seemed to be around where technology took off and perhaps went too far. But, I accept that this is matter of opinion. For all I know, 20 years from now we could be discussing that time as the more innocent days. Perhaps it indeed is a case of one's perception of a decade mattering more. Maybe there is no 'real' definition of a decade as much as there is a definition of what one experienced during that decade. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on September 30, 2010, 6:39 pm

Sagging - Random Topics
I believe you are right about that 'Dolfan'. Seems that I can recall occasionally seeing someone dressed like that as early as 1989.

Sagging - Random Topics
I never got into it but I can recall the exact spot where I considered it had boned- in a department store where I saw 'sagging' shorts that had extensions appearing to be underwear showing. Silly me, I'd always thought that underwear was something that was supposed to be worn UNDER clothes. No sale. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 30, 2010, 11:57 am
