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.

Meh. Buncha spoiled brat roidheads under a system that goes out of its way to reward the teams with the most money with perhaps the most incompetent commissioner in sports history in charge to boot.

Grammy Awards - Random Topics
I think there are simply way too many categories and the list grows every year. Now there are about 125 of them. I wish they would at least cut the number in half and get rid of some unnecessary categories, such as rap/sung and maybe even the best new artist. Most of the people who win best new artist end up disappearing within the next few years. Anyone remember the Starland Vocal Band? A Taste of Honey?Christopher Cross? Marc Cohn? and so on. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on June 29, 2010, 5:57 pm

Golden Raspberry Awards/The Razzies - Random Topics
A great way to point out who did the worst in the past year. Last year, for example, although Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (the no-talent hacks behind Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, and Disaster Movie) were nominated for quite a few Razzies for the last two examples I listed - they didn't win. Still, though, I haven't heard a peep out of those two - guess they finally realized they can't write or direct their way out of a wet paper bag. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 29, 2010, 10:31 am

Major League Baseball - Random Topics
BigAl, lets put the shoe on the other foot. You are a star player, and people flock to the baseball park to watch you. The team makes millions off of your name, yet you only see a fraction of it. How would you feel? Yeah, some of these guys deserve the millions, but some of the others, its way overboard, and yes, some of the owners do not have guns to their heads forcing themselves to spend millions on guys who really do not deserve it. Thats why I respect clubs like the Minnesota Twins, who know they don't need to spend $200 Million to put on the best product on the field, all they got to do was build a good farm system, and go from there. Some of the other teams should take notes from Minnesota, and follow them to a T. If money was really everything, the Yankees would of had a mega-dynasty in the 2000's, not just 2 world titles to bookend the decade. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 28, 2010, 10:08 pm

MLB went on a downward trend after the advent of free agency - that was when owners went hog-wild and started shelling out millions of dollars for players, regardless of their past performance. Now owners are crying poor, fewer people are coming to games because it's too expensive...guess what? Nobody held a gun to the owners' heads and told them "You must pay Joe Blow that much money or else".

Vuvuzela - Random Topics
I can understand blowing them to celebrate a goal (hell, yes, OF COURSE blow the horns for a goal!) and when someone on the team does something spectacular. I see similar horns all the time at major junior hockey games. Blowing them at those times (for a goal, or in hockey, for a big hit or a fight) makes perfect sense, and when they're used that way, I don't mind them much. (Also, coming from a fanbase that rings cowbells at games, I'm not in any position to get overly critical about the noise.) But what's the deal with blowing them for the ENTIRE game? That's what doesn't make any sense, and that's the point at which they might as well make the things out of fish bones. If a swarm of bees were to enter the stadium, the people blowing the horns would be the LAST to know about it! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 26, 2010, 7:10 am

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
Many reasons this one boned: 1.) Garfield went from fat, ugly cat (look at the 1st-3rd years of the strip) to cute. 2.) Garfield's attitude became nicer and nicer as the strip progressed. 3.) Jon went from average guy/cartoonist to complete dork and nerd. Lately they've made him more normal/average guy like again. 4.) The humor has been blunted considerably from the early days. 5.) Same old repetitive story lines (Garfield hates Mondays, Garfield loves lasagna, etc.) 6.)Characters have disappeared with no explanation (Lyman, Nermal, Arlene) I think that's enough for now. I actually think having Jon hook up with Liz was a good thing. It could lead to fresh new storylines for once. We'll see how it unfolds. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 14, 2010, 4:46 pm

Apple Inc. - Random Topics
While I believe over time Apple has actually gotten better than PC, the fact is Steve Jobs despite his initial success had the wrong idea about marketing his brand at first. He was only fortunate that the Apple II debuted in a time when the open format PC computers didn't yet exist, and it's true that he did make things easy for people. Problem is, people first needed a reason to have computers and when Microsoft buttered up to IBM he ended up getting a hard lesson of how the business world worked. Because IBM had numerous relations with businesses across the country, they could sell their PCs to businesses and people who have the same computer at work will want the same computer at home because it was the only way to get things done. Likewise, since Microsoft owned the operating system, it was that company that prevailed because of their selling of the system to other computer companies. The Macintosh, as Jobs thought, was such an easy to use machine he thought that alone would sell the computer, likewise he even thought he could get away with everyone buying from him. But he wouldn't accept that it didn't work that way and ended up quitting Apple in 1985 over his spite. This left Apple without direction for a decade and eventually Jobs came back, having learned his lesson and taking advantage of the internet world to make the Mac a more relevant machine than it had been in the past. Additionally he expanded his business beyond the Mac with the iPod, iPhone, and it did wonders. Meanwhile the open format had proved to be the worse system over time due to it's vulnerability issues with hackers and viruses, thus resulting in the User Access Control on Vista which sadly makes a computer not very friendly to use. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on June 1, 2010, 10:52 am

There is just way too much to tell here. I believe the first non-music based show they put on was a game show called "Remote Control" and it just went downhill from there. This was also marathoned to death like MTV loves to do which ruins everything if you don't like the program that they shove down your throat. A critic just noticed that "Jersey Shore" isn't anything special, it's just that MTV keeps playing which makes an artifical buzz. In the 80's I liked being surprised by which video they would show next and weren't limited to one genre of music. Rock, rap, new wave, etc. It didn't matter, I just wanted to see a fun music video and not just focus on one type of music. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on May 26, 2010, 12:59 pm

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
Pelirojo, I was merely describing a current state of affairs not endorsing a particular action. People need to reclaim ultimate responsibility for their own specialized needs though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severe_combined_immunodeficiency Kids are commonly forbidden to bring any peanut butter to school and, in some day care situations, parents must sign a pledge that their kids must be nut-free at home too in case any traces should remain. It's not labeling that concerns me, the more info the better, rather it's a strategy which would seem to have only dire counter-evolutionary results. A similar misguided strategy may be connected to the dramatic rise in childhood asthma rates, but, let's not digress. The world is a difficult environment and is not getting easier. To foster a fatal weakness into future generations is a poor tactic. Better to figure out how to switch off that gene in ourselves or to take the specific toxin out of the peanut crop. I'm sure there's an Aggie working on this in a university lab right now. Treating peanut butter as if it's the new Sarin is just crazy. An unscientific internet check shows that more people are at severe risk from bee stings (2%) than peanuts (0.4-0.6%), yet, bee-allergic people just tend to keep an EpiPen handy and try to avoid bees. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 24, 2010, 3:22 pm

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
baldrick, Am I reading you correctly in that you think we should isolate those with peanut allergies? Even if one doesn't care that it would be exceedingly punitive to folks who didn't ask to have that reaction, how difficult would implementing that proposed solution be compared to merely continuing to print a 'this product may contain peanuts' label on packages for consumers to make the decisions for themselves about whether they want to eat something with peanuts or serve it to friends/family who may have the allergies? If you don't want to have kids with peanut allergies ask your intended to take an allergen test before having sex with them if you like but isolating folks as though they comitted a heinous crime seems a bit extreme and quite the opposite of any freedom of choice! Thankfully, I don't have that condition but if I knew someone I cared about had it, I'd be sure to check the labels before I served them anything I knew could trigger possibly fatal reactions. Personally, I think for the sake of those who suffer the allergies (rather than those who consider it annoying to read the packaging labels), peanut allergies boned Day One. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 23, 2010, 5:40 pm

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
The only thing worse than this "group" protesting at funerals, is when they threaten to protest something, then pussy out last second. And them protesting Dio's funeral. That ought to be fun. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 23, 2010, 4:29 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
I've read everyone's comments and agree to infinity. Lisa went from being an intelligent character to an extreme leftist mouthpiece. She also became incredably annoying. The wiki article for her is f*cked up to the extreme. All praise for her and no negatives. I used to like and sympathise with her but now I consider her the worst cartoon character I've ever seen. She is a stupid twit and completely obnoxious. It's gotten to where I wish they would kill her off. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on May 22, 2010, 9:32 pm

Liberalism - Random Topics
Liberalism on paper seems like a great idea. Free rights and equality for everyone. However, it doesn't factor in logic, common sense, and inherent human nature. Ignoring these things, liberalism ends up being wishful thinking for a feel-good utopia that will NEVER exist thanks to the way humans are wired. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 22, 2010, 9:22 pm

Ice Cream - Random Topics
Ice cream, the perfect desert. No need for elaboration. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 22, 2010, 7:14 pm

Atheism - Random Topics
When I think of atheism I think of Bill Maher and other uber liberals like that who I want to punch in the face. Then again, I want to punch people who are uber religious in the face as well, so I guess it's one of the two extreme belief structures I can't stand. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 22, 2010, 3:50 pm

Dr Pepper - Random Topics
Never boned. Love Dr. Pepper. One of my favorite drinks. Dublin Dr. Pepper, made with real cain sugar, is even better. Hopefully with the bad reputation HFCS has they will start making this type of Dr. Pepper more available. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 22, 2010, 3:43 pm

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
These hateful snobs are protesting Ronnie James Dio's funeral. http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/sick-church-planning-on-picketing-the-funeral-of-ronnie-james-dio/ I don't know how these people call themselves a church; they're just hateful. The WBC actually quotes verses form the Bible, but they twist the words of it in their favor, like when they call Dio a "devil-worshipper" and saying that his two-finger gesture is a "symbol of Satan." Here's what that gesture REALLY means: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/8687002.stm -- Submitted By: (MacFan95) on May 22, 2010, 1:45 pm

Dr Pepper - Random Topics
Baldrick, I agree with you on the high fructose corn syrup part and the manufacturing stuff. In my opinion, Mexican Coke (made with sugar) is sweeter than its US counterpart (HFCS). -- Submitted By: (MacFan95) on May 22, 2010, 1:24 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
A follow-up to PYLrulz's comment about wikipedia's entry on Lisa: There is not a word of her becoming increasingly intolerant. However, I can't say the same thing for Reverend Lovejoy's entry. What the Hell? Lisa's gotten increasingly intolerant, too! I guess the deletionists REALLY love Lisa Simpson. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 22, 2010, 11:22 am

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - Random Topics
I see what you mean there, PYLrulz. I took a look at a pic of Ingrid Newkirk...geez, no man would ever want to have sex with her even if they Maced themselves first and put a paper bag over her head. The stuff my cats leave in the litter box look a lot better than her. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 22, 2010, 10:36 am

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - Random Topics
Speaking of PETA's founder, she's also a topic in the celebrity section. Not only is she doing our gene pool a favor by sterilizing herself, but she's also doing a favor for her potential child(ren)...it would be cruel and unusual punishment to be born to Ingrid Newkirk, who would put the life of an ant over your own. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 22, 2010, 10:34 am

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
In order to try and defend those unfortunates born with a hyper-allergy to such a mild toxin as that found in the peanut legume, our modern culture has, in effect, placed the rest of the gene pool into a anti-nut bubble rather than socially isolating the at-risk individuals. The inevitable effect of this policy will be to foster this genetic vulnerability in the general population. Many of the foods we consume as adults are mildly toxic in some regard - coffee, tea, certain herbs, alcohol etc are used specifically for their mildly toxic effects. Other stuff like raw milk or honey or the way we choose to prepare certain dishes make them slightly risky from a hygiene angle in favor of preserving the purity of the taste or eating enjoyment. We should preserve the idea of Choice in what we eat. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 10:23 am

Dr Pepper - Random Topics
I didn't personally see the episode and it's never to be re-broadcast by CBS due to legal and political pressure, however, one can assume that Dave was making a joking reference to the fact that most US soft drinks made from High Fructose Corn Syrup in place of natural real sugar or sucrose ARE the liquid end result of an agri-industrial process that begins (and one could also say ends) with manure. Liquid manure accelerates the growth of government subsidized corn to make cornstarch which is chemically processed into HFCS. If you can get a bottle of the beverage (same goes for Coke) from an overseas factory (Mexico, Caribbean?) you might like the way it tastes. To me it's just peppermint flavored cola - not a very tasty treat. I'd rather not dwell on the literal version of what was suggested below. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 10:10 am

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - Random Topics
PeTA is in no position to talk about ethical treatment of animals as long as they continue to euthanize perfectly healthy cats and dogs. And their founder...I heard she bragged about having surgery so she couldn't have kids. That's the smartest thing she ever did - see to it her inferior genetic material doesn't pollute the gene pool. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 21, 2010, 2:09 pm

I don't mind vegetarians and vegans as long as they don't attempt to shove their "perfect" diet down my throat. If they stay off my back over my food choices, I'm cool with them. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 21, 2010, 2:06 pm

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
It's gotten ridiculous about allergies to certain foods, especially peanuts. I daresay it's more like the mass media has turned the general populace into a bunch of thin-skinned paranoid hypochondriacs over everything. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 21, 2010, 2:03 pm

ESPN - Random Topics
Several things. 1. Everybody on ESPN is trying to be like their 90's counterparts, and fail epically at it. 2. Bias. If you are not the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Lakers, or Dallas Cowboys, you don't mean sh*t in their eyes. 3. Poor coverage. Look at their rotation for Monday Night Football. Yikes at times. NASCAR races. In the 90's, they were regarded as the best in covering NASCAR races. Now, they just plain suck. 4. More Bias. Its not as bad as it used to be, but I remember a time when if ESPN didn't cover it, they could care less about it. I remember when NASCAR took its races to FOX and NBC. ESPN treated NASCAR as if it was nothing more than a backwoods hick sport. The NHL was laughed upon the first few years after the lockout. In all, I say its time someone gives some competition to ESPN, or at least they pull their heads out of their rears. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:52 am

Major League Soccer (MLS) - Random Topics
I will say, Soccer is gaining traction in this country, though if I am the head honchos in the MLS, or US Soccer in general, I take notes from the NBA, NHL, NASCAR, etc., all the sports that had a surge in popularity, just to start sagging, and not do what they did. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:45 am

National Basketball Association (NBA) - Random Topics
Scotty, yeah, you do have those occasional upsets, but for the most part, its usually the Lakers, Celtics, Spurs, or, if you look back about 10 or 20 years, Bulls, or Pistons that end up in the finals. The NHL and NFL in comparison, yeah, you usually still have at least one favorite/familiar face in, but you can almost always count on a upset or two every playoffs. Hell, look at the NHL playoffs this year. Who would of expected the Flyers and Canadiens as the two Eastern Conference finalists? For the NBA, unless you are in the Top 2 in your conference in a season, you might as well, way more times than not, forget about the NBA Finals. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:38 am
