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.

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
I didn't realize that, PYLRulz! I wonder if today's episode will reflect that. When she spoke to Hugh, all she did was bash her family, bash her family, bash her family, and hyperventilate that her family would embarrass her in front of Hugh. Then, when it's Hugh's turn to say something nasty about her family..."How dare you say mean things about my family, the wedding's off!" She doesn't realize she did him a favor in the long run by leaving him at the altar. And to Chubby Rain...it's a zombie, all right. Alas, it seems that this zombie will be forced to walk even when it's reduced to nothing but a pile of dust. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 1, 2010, 1:09 pm

Moderators (Internet Forum) - Random Topics
There are good mods, but on many sites or forums, they're overshadowed by the actions of unreasonable mods who misuse their powers to get their way (controlling a board, making sure nothing negative is said about a certain subject, Wikipedia, etc.). Years ago, there was one board where me and fellow fans of a certain subject started a comment thread. We made sure to stay on topic. One of the mods, who clearly did not like the subject, decided they could claim it was off-topic and soon removed it. We appealed that we felt the thread was not off topic, and the reply was "I think it was". They didn't want to hear it anymore and upheld the removal of the thread. We didn't want to risk being banned or whatnot, so we decided not to restart the thread. We had the last laugh, though. We started a new topic which was VERY on-topic...and included criticisms against the mod's unreasonable attitude. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 31, 2010, 10:47 am

It honestly depends on the particular mod. I've seen some that were the worst. They'd let their personal circle of friends bully anyone else who wasn't with no consequences whatsoever while anyone not in the Inner Circle would get banned for literally no reason. Then there's mods who literally refuse to do anything about people ruining a board, because they're just too scared to "abuse" their power. A good mod is hard to find. But they're out there, you just have to spend a lot of time looking. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 30, 2010, 6:27 pm

Homework - Random Topics
I remember having to do term papers and book reports when I was in elementary school, but that was only because I was in gifted class. Regular elementary school kids back then didn't have that kind of workload. Now they do. And yet the state of education gets worse the more homework is assigned and the longer they make the school year. What I loved were the teachers (and professors) who clearly thought you didn't have anything to do for the rest of the day and thus had all the free time in the world to do THEIR personal mountain of assigned homework. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 28, 2010, 10:09 pm

You want to talk about a superstar league? How about LeBron and Chris Bosh coming to join Dwyane Wade in Miami? Parity is nonexistent in this league. But that's just the way it is in the NBA.

Pokemon - Random Topics
Argh, it jumped the shark when Generation IV introduced a whole region full of Pokemon that were either evolutions from previous Generations or Pokemon that had no inspiration what so ever. There were also too many legendaries by then, they just weren't special anymore. People always say that Gen III had the most unoriginal ones, but how can that be when only two Pokemon had evolutionary relatives from older generations? It is true that the Pokemon Wurmple was a shameless ripoff of Caterpie, along with it's evolutions, but at least it served a purpose as to further explore nature (Wurmple evolved into a certain Pokemon depending on it's nature). Compare that to the Pokemon from Gen IV that were just evolutions of Pokemon that were fine on their own! Not even of Pokemon that would actually benifit from gaining an evolution, like a great number of Pokemon in the Hoenn dex!! GAWD! Plus, Ruby & Sapphire were rushed games. They likely would have had time to put more freakin' Pokemon in if you impatient idiots had just waited. They might have had time to put in Johto and Kanto too! Derp.

1990's - Random Topics
The 1990s was a decade of change. Granted, one could say the same for almost any decade. The 1990s saw major changes in communication and computers with the Internet becoming public and mainstream. That was of course only one way in which the 90s changed everything. In some ways, the 1990s was a 60s wanabe. That does make sense however, given that the 90s was the decade in which at least some of the Baby Boomers kids' were teenagers. The 1990s saw entertainment want to be darker and edgier. In some ways, this paved the way for far higher quality entertainment. In other ways, it also gave some characters (and I know how strange that might sound) a sense of entitlement that it was okay and perhaps mandatory to be edgy simply because it was the 90s. The 1990s also saw a sharp increase in one annoying trend, that being parenting issues. That however, is a whole different post. The 1990s did have another annoying issue. That being the obsession with being politically correct. This is an issue I've been hesitant to point out of because of the concern that it's wrong for me to say this. However, it was something I noticed. One effect of wanting to be more politically correct was the idea that being anything but a white male somehow made you cool. Ending racism and sexism (or at least trying to) is good. However, giving preference to someone because of their race or gender is still discrimination. The difference being that it's just taking a different form. I understand that this was an effect of a society that gave preference to white males and that people were trying to even the playing field. However, I think it ended up punishing people for discrimination in which they never participated. That's not fair either. Having said that, I do feel that the 90s was an important decade. It was a decade of change that changed things in ways that we still feel today and generally for the better. The main issue of the 90s was that it was a decade that perhaps took the various trends and themes of the decade a little too seriously. It was as though it had the attitude that it was the 90s and the 90s are cool and edgy and people felt a need to be that way simply because it was the 90s. It was however, an important decade in my life given I was a teenager. It was awesome in ways yet obnoxious in others. Perhaps both at the same time. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 21, 2010, 5:24 pm

1970's - Random Topics
I suppose I'm so fond of the 70's because I was between the ages of 4 & 14 in that decade. Some of the fondest memories of my life occurred in that decade. No responsibilities, no worries, not a care in the world. The popular music and the TV shows were great! I will say that the only thing that really boned in the 70's (IMO) were 'Elephant Bells'. Those jeans/slacks with the MASSIVE bells at the cuff. Any time I rode my bike (metallic purple with the high handle bars and the 'banana seat' with the 'sissy bar'), I had to roll up one leg of my pants to keep from getting them caught in the chain. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 19, 2010, 10:42 am

1990's - Random Topics
True, 90s music wasn't as great as the ones from the decades before it. However, in other aspects pop culturally, the 90s was very good.

It did have its flaws, but then again, what decade didn't? -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on July 18, 2010, 6:16 pm

It's a nice change of pace to eat tater tots instead of french fries with your meal. The food there is good. I don't eat breakfast there, so I can't say anything about that. But the stuff printed on the tater tot box made me furrow an eyebrow: "If french fries come from France, Tater tots come from Awesome, because they are awesome". It makes no sense at all. It's probably a subtle way of saying "Your tater tots are getting cold because you're wasting time reading this box!"

What a mixed bag this one is. It's true, you get it or you don't. Either it's a clean picture, a pixellated mess of the last images before the signal messed up, or a black screen with the words "NO SIGNAL". Rain? Good bye, picture. An airplane flies overhead? Hello, pixellated jumble. At least with analog the worst we'd get is a fuzzy screen. I still don't understand why they just had to get rid of analog. They say emergencies, but I fail to see how using analog for TV affected emergencies, when analog TV's been around for decades. Why couldn't they use digital for emergencies and leave analog alone if digital is so much better than analog? Wouldn't something of better quality be better suited for emergencies? The pros to DTV: You get channels you never had before. However, I have satellite TV now, so the digital converter box just collects dust. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 10, 2010, 8:59 am

I bought an actual DTV in anticipation of the takeover. During the interim when we had both analog and digital it worked fine. When the actual switchover occurred-- suddenly I had no channels. Zero. See the thing with digital is it's either 1 or 0. You either receive the channel in perfect picture or not at all. During the analog age I would have one or two channels you could always count on and five or six others that were usually watchable. Now, nothing. They say TV ratings have been down these last couple years and I think DTV is to blame.

I'd like to know if any of the big animal-rights orgs are legit before I donate to them. As it stands, I'll only contribute to the local no-kill shelters. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 8, 2010, 12:06 am

Atkins Diet, the - Random Topics
I like was MCS said!! Seriously, I got so sick and tired of all those people on their Atkins Diet. I'd eat a big juicy hamburger right in front of them. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on July 7, 2010, 11:23 am

Taco Bell - Random Topics
I used to think it was decent, cheap fast-food. But a couple of years ago they changed the ingredients and the way they prepare them, and now it's like microwave food you buy at a convenience store. Totally boned the fish, and I won't be eating there any more. -- Submitted By: (Scaramouche) on July 6, 2010, 6:11 pm

Sears - Random Topics
My brother and I LOVED the Wishbook. Every year when we got it, we would immediately go through and start circling everything we wanted for Christmas. Then, my little brother would sneak it later and start x-ing out the stuff I circled just to hack me off. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 6, 2010, 4:27 pm

Big Mouth Billy Bass - Random Topics
My dad gave me one of those for Christmas one year. Never left the box and it went straight to the Goodwill store. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 6, 2010, 4:16 pm

Panda Bears - Random Topics
Sigh. Pandas screwed up again. We need a CPS for panda cubs. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/07/06/panda-chinese-zoo-accidentally-crushes-cub -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 6, 2010, 1:40 pm

NASA - Random Topics
This is Obama's NASA priorities, folks. Note that none of these three things involves space exploration. "Inspire children to learn math and science, expand international relationships and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering." http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/07/06/nasa-official-walks-claim-muslim-outreach-foremost-mission -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 6, 2010, 1:31 pm

Dave & Buster's - Random Topics
Dave & Buster's rules! Whenever I can spare the time and money, I go there and have a great time. The food, although pricey, is worth the money I pay, and I enjoy the games they have available. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on July 5, 2010, 12:48 am

Independence Day (USA) - Random Topics
Seeing today's July 4th...Happy Independence Day! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 4, 2010, 10:53 am

Democratic Socialists of America - Random Topics
Interestingly, I read from somewhere that socialists think Democrats are not socialist enough or something like that. I also read somewhere the socialists themselves say Obama is not a socialist. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 4, 2010, 10:52 am

Hip hop music - Random Topics
The worst part is, all these so called "gangstaz" who constantly told us about "keepin' it real" turned out to be the most blatant sellouts in the history of the entertainment industry. Which says a lot. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 4, 2010, 12:13 am

France - Random Topics
Just before the French soccer team pulled their whiny quitter act that even embarrassed French people (and that's damn hard to do), I read an article on the net about how French service staff are rude BY DESIGN since in France they're considered the equal of the customer. Which still doesn't explain the incredible rudeness. Only in France would waiters and store clerks adopt the attitude of "you're not the boss of me!" LOL -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 4, 2010, 12:08 am

France - Random Topics
I read somewhere that when France was eliminated from the World Cup, the team took a no-frills coach flight home (they flew in first-class). But that wasn't all of it - the French coach was so angry that he didn't shake the hand of the coach of the opposing team...talk about arrogant. I always knew the French were sore losers ever since they attempted to plant performance-enhancing drugs in Lance Armstrong's hotel room when he won the Tour de France 7 times in a row - wouldn't surprise me if their mindset is "WAAAHHH!! We're the only ones who are allowed to win the Tour de France!!" -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on July 3, 2010, 8:20 am

Hip hop music - Random Topics
Virtually all hip hop songs have samples in them. There have been so many samples that even samples are being sampled. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 2, 2010, 6:30 pm

Golden Raspberry Awards/The Razzies - Random Topics
@Robert - Friedberg and Seltzer were nominated quite a few times in '09, but didn't win one. I recall they lost Worst Picture to Love Guru, and I'm certain they lost Worst Director to Uwe Boll that year. I don't remember which other ones they were nominated for or who won it instead of them. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on July 2, 2010, 7:22 am

Golden Raspberry Awards/The Razzies - Random Topics
It's a surprise that Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer didn't sweep the Razzies, but they didn't even win ONE nomination? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 1, 2010, 7:18 pm

Christmas - Random Topics
It bugs me when there are people so thin-skinned and oversensitive to the point they insist everyone has to say "Happy Holidays" - but it bothers me even more when the Christmas music, decorations, and/or advertisements start around October. A place for everything, and everything in its place. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on July 1, 2010, 4:30 pm

Body Piercing - Random Topics
"When did shrapnel become a fashion accessory?" - Bill Engvall -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on July 1, 2010, 4:26 pm

Trolls (internet) - Random Topics
Anyone bet the "Never Boned" votes for this are trolling? Or trolls elsewhere? -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on July 1, 2010, 5:21 am

Grammy Awards - Random Topics
Feh. Just another self-congratulatory celebrity circle jerk. The best thing you can say about the Grammies is that at least it's been around for a while as opposed to any awards show MTV or Spike TV does. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 29, 2010, 10:43 pm

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
Ever notice in the more recent strips, his hind feet are almost as big as his body? How did they grow so big? I don't know about you, but I have always preferred Heathcliff. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on June 29, 2010, 10:42 pm

Vuvuzela - Random Topics
If I was in charge of the world I would make possession of a vuvuzela a capital offense. That's the kind of crime one gets the death penalty for, right? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 29, 2010, 6:45 pm

Motel 6 - Random Topics
I heard Tom Bodet doing a Motel 6 ad just last week so I don't think he's gone just yet. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 29, 2010, 6:32 pm

Major League Baseball - Random Topics
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. Plus the season is WAY too long--the next one seems to start almost as soon as the previous one ends! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 29, 2010, 6:29 pm

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

Guinness World Records - Random Topics
Agreed. Most of these "records" are either bogus, or just plain stupid. Too bad Guinness has a stranglehold on this, otherwise, I would suggest someone else jump in and throw in a new record book that actually focuses on records. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 28, 2010, 10:14 pm

G-20 Summit - Random Topics
Agreed. Want to hold one of these without inconveniencing a city? Go to Camp David. Go to some Swiss mountain lair. Go to some wilderness retreat. Just keep it out of the large cities where all that ends up happening is riots and damage from anarchists who's only goal is to come and raise hell. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 28, 2010, 10:12 pm
