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.

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

Bowl Championship Series (BCS) - Random Topics
Know what the BCS reminds me of? The "in" crowd in high school. Why? Because they wouldn't let anyone in who wasn't already a member no matter what. Already you've got people arguing that Boise shouldn't be allowed to play for a title period and a one loss team from any of the BCS conferences should get in ahead of them instead, and these people are VEHEMNT about this. They;re more passionate about this then they are about REAL problems, like crime and hunger and disease and corruption!!! These people have the attitude of "screw all that other stuff, the REAL crime is Boise playing for the title!" It's literally insane. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 29, 2010, 8:33 pm

1990's - Random Topics
MCS, I disagree about when the 90s officially ended. Just like "the sixties" was really just '65-'69, the 90s were really just from '91 to '97. In '97 and '98 things started going downhill and then bottomed out in '99 when all of pop culture boned the fish. And who put divorce as a reason? The frequent divorce phenomenon actually started in the 80s. Half the kids I went to school with were from broken homes and I graduated high school in '91. I even remember the school counselor asking me if my parents were still together for graduation arrangements, that's how common divorce was even back then. And also, kids of the 90s never really got the chance to imitate the 60s because the baby boomers saw that my generation was the first one to really question authority since those days and because THEY were now in authority they did their best to stamp us out, including attaching the derisive and dismissive "Gen X" label to us--and then turning around and spoiling the generation right after us rotten!!! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 29, 2010, 8:07 pm

Doonesbury - Random Topics
In my local newspaper, there are two political comics for the opinion page. Doonesbury, and Mallard Fillmore (since the "Republican" paper and "Democrat" paper merged to print one paper together instead of two seperate papers). In terms of sanity, Doonesbury far outdoes Fillmore (which seems to be nothing more than a comic to scare righties into thinking we are going to hell or some crap), so it has that going for it. That being said, I do not care much for the comic either, but at least it doesn't freak lefties out into thinking righties are taking this country straight to hell (short of the Bush bashing it did when he was in office). -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 27, 2010, 10:15 pm

1990's - Random Topics
The 90s was a fun decade. That was my high school years and it was a great time to be a teenager. There were good sitcoms on TV. The Simpsons was king and you also had Friends, Home Improvement, NYPD Blue, and the X-Files. This was the last time that there were regularly good sitcoms on TV, before reality TV took over. The 90s witnessed the decline of MTV but had some decent music until the bubblegum music of the latter part of the decade took over and hip-hop and rap became the norm. The 90s ended on September 11, 2001. I guess you can't really say it boned, it just went past its prime (except in fashion which still seems to be hanging on). As an aside, does anyone else think the transition period from about 1989-1991 was such an awkward time period? It was a weird bridge between the two decades. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 12, 2010, 1:04 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
Not a McDonald's fan and haven't eaten there in years. I personally don't think the food tastes good, but that's my opinion. Having said that, McDonald's boned the fish when they dumped the McDonaldland characters and started the "I'm lovin' it" campaign aimed for urban audience. The ads bug the crap out of me and seem to be pandering. Also, I love how they only emphasize their healthy options these days. I can't remember the last ad I saw for a Big Mac or Quarterpounder, but seem to see ones for the snack wraps and coffee pretty much all the time. Most people I know who go to McDonald's don't go for their salads, they go for their burgers or chicken McNuggets. Oh well, McDonald's will always be a good way to relieve constipation. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 11, 2010, 2:39 pm

Action 52 (NES) - Random Topics
Believe it or not, I actually got to play Action 52 on a REAL cartridge. Before AVGN's review came around. So, when did Action 52 bone the fish? For me, it's a tie: realizing how many glitches there actually are, the awful controls, and how stupid the games' premises were: A guy with giant feet stomping on eyeballs. A giant baby climbing furniture and squirting milk at adults half its size. Indecipherable mishmashes of pixels shooting odd-looking bullets at other indecipherable mishmashes of pixels. And with that last sentence, I summed up the premises for more than half the games. But if I have to choose the one game which proved A52 BTFed, I guess it should be Cheetahmen. Why? Because you'd think the other games were poorly made because all the attention went to this one. Sadly for those who paid $199 for this cart, Cheetahmen is only SLIGHTLY better than the other games. And even then, I'm being too generous in calling it "slightly better". The truth came to light: these people couldn't get even ONE game right, tried to cover it up by making 51 games which were worse, then tried to get rich off it by tricking unsuspecting buyers into getting 52 "new and original" games for less than $4 each. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 11, 2010, 1:30 pm

Street Fighter - Random Topics
Capcom is kind of damned if they do/don't with regards to characters. They tried an all-new cast of characters in the first version of Street Fighter III and people hated them. I wasn't fond of any of the SF3 original characters either. They were corny and weren't iconic at all. I liked them all up until 3 came out. But the story has gotten progressively more and more ridiculous. I can deal with crazy chi energy balls and such; the first two games seemed like a kung-fu movie. But now we've got robots, cyborgs, clones, mind control, people coming back from the dead, etc. SF4 was a step up from 3 though. Still haven't played Super SF 4. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 10, 2010, 3:00 pm

Socialism - Random Topics
Yeah, Nazi was short for "National Socialists" but that doesn't mean they brought socialism to Germany or that was their main platform point(there are obvious others). Germany has traditionally been socialist regardless of where their political pendulum swings. Anyhow, I'm not a socialist but like it as a balance for capitalism. Pure capitalism may be more interesting but unbridled capitalism allows those who cheat or exploit the system get away with it. With capitalism there are winners and losers. The problem is what to do with the losers. Pure capitalists will say that the winners will hire the losers to work for them especially if they get lower tax rates. Ok, those workers will be hired but paid as low as possible no matter the tax rate is and if another nation can provide cheaper labor they will go there no matter how low the tax rate is. Capitalism has sense of patriotism just make money as efficiently as possible. So the question is what to do with the losers if they can't afford basic living needs? If those winners are not hiring them or paying them a decent wage, then the govt has to tax the winners to give the losers money to afford what they need. Either that or give them credit cards and put them in eternal debt. It is more complex than this but this why socialism exists. So the wealthy will still have to pay for the poorer in society whether they pay them for work or through the govt. Again, I might be oversimplifying this but this is just what I see. I'm not trying to be anti-capitalist or pro-socialist if that's how I come across but this is just the way I see things. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on August 19, 2010, 11:11 pm

Independence Day (USA) - Random Topics
The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival.

It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not." John Adams -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on August 19, 2010, 9:06 am

Veganism - Random Topics
I'm vegan, it's a personal choice. I don't feel comfortable being responsible for doling out that kind of suffering and pain on any living being. It's easy to close yourself off from what actually happens in factory farms because you never have to deal with it, but I choose to acknowledge those facts and not contribute to them. I also don't pull the "guilt-the-carnivores" stance either. People are so offended by people like me making a personal choice and I don't get why. It's the way I choose to live my life, that is all. I don't live this lifestyle to be "holier-than-thou." -- Submitted By: (bandeapart) on August 18, 2010, 3:36 pm

ESPN - Random Topics
You know, I think ESPN has always been for the casual fan. At one point it was entertaining enough to appeal to everyone when Sportscenter was in its golden years, but really they've always been about watered down coverage for casual fans. A serious sports fan wants to see all or most of their team games, hear quality coverage and analysis from a full-time reporter... a serious fan is never going to be satisfied with Joe Morgan reading the notes someone else prepared for him and Chris Berman screaming cliches in lieu of providing any kind of meaningful analysis. But hey if you just want a bit of entertainment with sports in it, ESPN is there for you. That's their game plan. They have been doing this for decades. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 17, 2010, 9:41 am

Domino's Pizza - Random Topics
As far as I can tell the new recipe is the old one with herbs in the crust. An improvement but... the ads are overstating the difference a bit much. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 17, 2010, 9:35 am

Napster - Random Topics
Npaster was a business joke from day one. It never produced or sold a product or service but just parasite that provided a way for others to ripoff content. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on August 16, 2010, 1:55 pm

Tin Foil Hat - Random Topics
That post is worthless without pics! Sorry, had to say that, lol -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 15, 2010, 3:23 pm

Tin Foil Hat - Random Topics
Whether you buy the mind-control theories or not, the tin foil hat is still a fun conversation topic. I used to have a message board pen pal who said she had not only a tin foil hat, but also a tin foil bra -- to protect the REALLY important parts, I guess. I never was quite sure how seriously to take her ... :-) -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 14, 2010, 7:53 am

Sagging - Random Topics
Everytime I see somebody with baggy low lying pants, I am tempted to say "I didn't know that the circus was in town." -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 12, 2010, 10:29 pm

Video Games - Random Topics
I was a huge gamer back in the day, but not to the point kids are today. When I played games, it was a diversion with friends for an hour, maybe 2, to kill some time during summer vacation or Christmas break. Now, kids play games ALL DAY LONG and never go outside, exercise, or have real life friends besides those they meet through playing their games. I feel it's definitely one of the major causes of the rising rate of obesity, yet it doesn't seem to get the same flack that candy, soda and fast food companies do. Sure, video games get flack, but more for the violence factor, not the obesity one. Then again, the gaming culture was a lot different in the 80s and 90s. Arcades were still popular and it was cool to go to an arcade, challenge people, drink some big gulps and eat some pizza, and maybe make a few new friends or having your friends over and playing 2 player games on the Genesis or SNES. Now it's more an activity done alone in your own home with "cyber" friends. Games back in the day had more variety. Now it's just WoW type games or first-person shooters. And like previous posters, 3-D games make me sick... So yes, I think video games have boned, probably around the time the WII and XBox 360 came out, so early to mid 2000s. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 12, 2010, 2:57 pm

Sagging - Random Topics
I remember driving through a neighborhood in Los Angeles about 13 years ago and seeing some guy with those big baggy hanging down pants and a friend in the car with me said "Man I sure will be glad when that stupid A--ed look goes out of style." Little did I know 13 years later it would still be around. Ugh. I sincerely hoped that that particular style of pants would become to the 90's what 'Elephant Bells' were to the 70's. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 12, 2010, 2:37 pm

Sagging - Random Topics
My girlfriend is always disgusted at the sight of some asshole who thinks its cool to have your pants so low, your boxers showing. I never got it myself, and if I didn't feel like getting into a fight, would probably help the rest of the trip down for the person's pants. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 12, 2010, 5:26 am

Sagging - Random Topics
Sagging = half the dacking done for you or the most convenient wedgie opportunity ever? -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on August 11, 2010, 5:41 pm

Napster - Random Topics
The recording industry trying to shut down Napster all those years ago instead of figure out some mutually beneficial conclusion was one of the worst mistakes they ever made. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 11, 2010, 12:00 pm

National Football League (NFL) - Random Topics
Roger Goodell...get that bum outta there! He fixes what ain't broke and doesn't do a thing about the real problems. The fact he didn't do anything about Bill Bellicheater except cover it up proves he's a wimp of the worst kind. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 11, 2010, 11:57 am

KFC - Random Topics
Grilled chicken was meh for me...the food is still good, but rather pricey. Still, I indulge in some KFC every so often, if only to give a big loud "F*** you" to PeTA. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 11, 2010, 11:52 am

For Better or For Worse - Random Topics
For Better or For Worse wasn't the same after Farley died - anytime there was a death in the strip after Farley (notably Elly's mom and Mr. B (the rabbit)) - I half-expected another flood of letters printed in the editorial page of my local newspaper that had variations on the theme of "Comics are supposed to be funny! Death isn't FUNNY!!" -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 11, 2010, 11:50 am

Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) - Random Topics
The RIAA suing old ladies and children over illegal downloads made them look even more stupid than they already were. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 11, 2010, 11:43 am

Sagging - Random Topics
Sagging, if anything, makes the person look more stupid than they already are. Seriously, there is NOTHING more ridiculous than pants hanging so low that your skivvies are showing. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 11, 2010, 11:40 am

Massively multiplayer online role-playing game - Random Topics
Agreed. Only one I play is Football Manager Live, and I only play it because the mods on there make sure no greifer causes any trouble. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 9, 2010, 10:23 pm

Doom (Video Game) - Random Topics
Doom was one of the first in the genre of first-person shooters that I got into and enjoyed greatly. Solving puzzles, killing monsters, finding secret passages...my kind of game! -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 9, 2010, 5:46 pm

Super Nintendo - Random Topics
@Robert - Keep going, you aren't wrong - not by a long shot! :) -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 9, 2010, 5:41 pm

Massively multiplayer online role-playing game - Random Topics
Griefers are the main reason why I don't get into this genre of gaming. I think the South Park episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft" said it the best regarding why I'm not into MMORPG's. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 9, 2010, 5:34 pm

Profanity - Random Topics
I don't mind the occasional bit of swearing, but when it's overused, all it does is make that person sound like an uneducated schmuck. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 8, 2010, 9:54 am
