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.

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
I don't like Wal-Mart. Therefore, I don't shop there. I'm not an active hater of the place like some people are, but I just don't like going to it. It feels gross inside, the stuff is made of bad quality and it's too busy. I could care less about their business practices because people have a choice on where they shop and where they work. If you want cheap stuff, be my guest and go to Wal-Mart. If your mad you can't unioize there, quit. Nobody's forcing you to work there. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 2:30 pm

Organic Farming - Random Topics
Organic food is a false hope for produce. It has a much lower yield than genetically modified food and is why people in impoverished countries are starving.

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
I still remember Calvin's troubles with Moe. "Never argue with a six-year-old who shaves".

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
Boned for me when I realized I had more fun on Saturday mornings sleeping in, playing a game for a sports team, playing outside with my friends or playing video games. Crudely drawn 30 minute toy commercials never really did much for me with the exceptions of Scooby Doo and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 6:55 pm

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
Never boned. Sure, I'd love new strips, but I'd rather it end on top than on a decline, and it did indeed end on top. Look at other cartoons like Garfield and you see recycled story lines that are growing stale. The great thing about Watterson's strip is you can read it today and it's just as fresh as it was twenty years ago. The story lines don't age and neither do the characters. Calvin, Hobbes, Susie, his parents, Moe, the babysitter and Miss Wormwood never lost their charm all 10 years of the strip. It's hard to say that with most comics. Bill Watterson's mood swings towards the end got a bit annoying, especially in the 10 Year Anniversary Book, which had more complaining than I cared for, but I didn't see it bleed into the strips. They stayed intelligent, hilarious and enjoyable. Today the comic page is pretty much a wasteland except for the occasional Fox Trot or Peanuts rerun. Blondie, Dennis the Menace, Gasoline Alley, Garfield and the insufferable Family Circus are all showing their age. It's too bad there aren't any new cartoons to step up and take their spot. In fact, one could say Calvin and Hobbes leaving back in 1996 is when the comic page in general boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:19 pm

I think it's time I speak about the subs themselves. This place is a ripoff. All you're getting is a loaf of bread with a few pieces of meat and veggies stuffed inside. They're so stingy with meat.

Obesity - Random Topics
Obesity is a problem, a problem that has been blown way out of proportion by the left. Are kids fatter these days? Yes. Who's to blame? First and foremost are the parents. Taking your kids to McDonald's for most of their meals is the problem. Letting kids play video games and sit around indoors is the problem. Letting kids eat junk food on a regular basis is the problem. When I was a kid, McDonald's or fast food was a once a week, maybe twice a week treat. Most of the time I played sports outside with my friends. When I got into high school I was involved. Today as a functioning adult I can watch what I eat, work out, and at the same time enjoy a treat or fast food without it ruining my health. I did this because of my parents, not because of Super Size Me, not because of laws regulating food choices, not because vending machines were taken out of my high school (they weren't), but because my parents taught me a good balanced diet, the benefits of exercise, and at times indulging yourself. People suing McDonald's or demanding that P.E. be taken out of school programs are way off base here. Weird diets, government laws, and hatred towards fast food aren't the problem. Lazy, indifferent parents are the problem. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 11:32 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
Wait, Eminem has a social conscience? Since when? Honestly, I'm old enough to remember rap from the beginning and it was *always* trash, only I listened to it when I was a teen because...I was a teen. In the 80s every song was all "I'm from da hood and I kill ten people every day before breakfast and then I screw some bitches and hos then I kill some more people so don't mess with me or you're next!" Then in the early 90s the content actually improved a little but the fad of deliberately NOT rapping in time with the beat started and got on my nerves. Then in the late 90s suddenly it was all about "Look at all my bling, I'm much richer than you! And here are all the hot chicks I'm boning! Be jealous of me!" Ever since then I've pretty much stopped paying attention but even *I've* noticed it's gotten even worse. They can't even call it "rap" anymore, now it's "hip hop" since that sounds less threatening to parents of today's teens. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:14 am

Subway (Restaurant) - Random Topics
For all that Subway is worth, people should just pack their lunch instead. Yes, they have healthy menu items, but they still have one thing in common with other fast food restaurants, they are a money waste. If they truly cared about your health, they would stop selling soda, chips, cookies, and their subs that are over 6 grams of fat at six inches, discontinue footlongs, and serve whole wheat bread only. But as you can tell from the fact that they don't do that, the plain fact is, they are a business in it for money. It's one thing to stop for lunch casually when you are with friends, but don't make Subway a daily routine.

Socialism - Random Topics
An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism." All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided that since they could not make an A, they studied less. The second Test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed to their great surprise and the professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder people try to succeed the greater their reward but when a government takes all the reward away; no one will try or succeed. And that, my friends, is why I'm 100% against socialism in our country. I will work hard for myself and expect you to do the same and I will donate and help out the needy when I want to, not when the government forces me to. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 2, 2010, 7:28 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Johnnydough, your description of Lisa's character evolution hit the nail on the head. Lisa complains that no one pays attention to her, but I have a newsflash for her: nobody wants to pay attention to a constant whiner! I love how you called her an "alleged" Buddhist. I guess I'm not the only one who noticed that despite identifying herself as a Buddhist, her views are more in line with that of an atheist or agnostic (feeling the people of Springfield were stupid to believe in angels, among other things. I know the angel statue was fake after all, but that's beside the point). You know how one reason the Simpsons boned is because it became a parody of itself? Lisa's a good example: all the stuff she complained about in the early episodes? She became them herself! Criticizing Homer for changing his religion to one he founded (but it was perfectly OK for her to convert to Buddhism), complaining during Burns' election campaign that she and her family became political "tools of evil" (later on becoming one herself to promote extreme ideals and political views), and I haven't even scratched the surface. I'd be here all day if I wrote them all down. I especially love how Lisa turned her back on the United States by pretending to be Canadian just because Bush was president at the time. Classy. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 2, 2010, 11:28 am

Even a lot of die-hard Simpsons fans consider the episode "Lisa the Vegetarian" to be her low point.

Atheism - Random Topics
I am accepting of whatever religion and denomination a person chooses to be, even most cults (if a person wants to be a Scientologist, fine). Where it gets less tolerable is when they become militant, violent or just plain disdainful about "other" people's faith. Atheism is a prime example of this. You do not *have* to believe in God, Allah, karma etc but then you do not have to purely believe only what science or Earthly material tells you. There is that issue you try explaining aspects of religion to atheists and there is a chance they will not listen as they think they are right and nothing will do so otherwise. Then there is the faith aspect, where it is only seen as a "religion" thing but that is needed for true belief in anything. I will not say that it boned the fish, as that is insensitive but the idea does need critiquing and close analysis. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 1, 2010, 2:10 am

Obesity - Random Topics
I agree with MCS that obesity hardly qualifies as an epidemic: it's neither killing people in alarming numbers nor difficult to cure (eating less and exercising more are two of many cures to this so-called "epidemic"). I'm also sick and tired of people calling it an "epidemic". But, it's not fat people's fault that their condition has been given this ridiculously inaccurate term. People who consistently use incorrect words and change the words' meanings to reflect their new definitions are to blame. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 28, 2010, 7:36 pm

Edsel - Random Topics
I agree with some, but not all, of the comment below on the Edsel. I always felt that mechanically, the Edsel was a typical car of its era, and it was probably as reliable as anything Detroit produced during that period (apart from some understandable teething troubles that will crop up on any new design when it first launches). I also agree that the timing of the Edsel's launch (at the beginning of a pretty major recession) had a hand in the car being seen as unsuccessful. But I must disagree about the styling - for the term "striking" I would substitute "distinctive", and that is not meant in a good way. The vertical front grille was certainly unique, but in my opinion it looked hideous. I saw a restored Edsel out on the road last week, and I still think it looks awful. The 1960 Edsels actually replaced the vertical grille, and I think they looked a lot better, but by then the brand was doomed. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on April 28, 2010, 11:55 am

Obesity - Random Topics
Considering the urge to overeat can be as addicting as tobacco, alcohol, etc., a support group could be a good idea. Since some people often eat because they are bored silly (like I do sometimes, which is not a good thing), curing boredom could also help alleviate the problem. When I read a book or go on the computer, the urge for me to snack is curtailed. Another idea is that one could try lowfat foods...instead of chips, try eating lowfat crackers, preferably one rich in vitamins and minerals. Instead of soda, try sports drinks (which have about half the calories of soda and can taste as good), low calorie drinks, or water. Of course, if the urge to overeat is that bad, these ideas are easier said than done. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 20, 2010, 12:09 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
Yeah, it's quite a connumdrum, Exploding Console, re how one should react to the morbidly obese. One the one hand taunting and dissing them for something they are [often painfully] aware of every moment of the day doesn't help matters but saying and doing nothing isn't effective either. Good point about how extreme overeating is often like alcohol or drugs to the morbidly obese. Unfortunately, unlike alcohol or drugs, everyone MUST keep consuming nourishment to survive so it's not as though one can ask someone to stop eating altogether . Then, too, as one gastric bypass operation survivor who then became addicted to illegal drugs put it, the surgery takes off the weight but it doesn't take away the underlying demons for the obesity. There are friends and family in my life who are slowly killing themselves this way and I wish I could think of a definitive answer as to how to help. I guess the best way is to show encouraging examples and to seek out less destructive means to deal with the underlying demons. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 20, 2010, 9:44 am

Split decision: As a business strategy I say never boned, as a product from day one. The six inch subs are healthy because there hardly any meat on them. I want more than just breadand vegies on my sub. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on April 19, 2010, 2:23 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
I understand that with some people, they can try whatever diet or lifestyle they want and they still might not lose weight. Likewise, there are people that can eat like crazy and never seem to gain any real weight. There are all sorts that are somewhere in between. I get that it isn't fair that some people have to watch what they eat, lest they gain a lot of weight and be unable to lose it. It's also unfair that some people are born with great intelligence and others are born disabled in that way (or whatever term society asks we use now). It's unfair that some are born into wealth and others poverty and so forth with whatever example one wishes to use. I know it feels wrong to look down upon obese people and I understand this. However, there is a difference between being obese because of health issues and/or being unable to maintain even a half decent weight even with good eating habits and exercise and being obese because of a lack of exercise and poor eating habits. I think part of the problem is we're so afraid to say that no, it isn't good to be that way, it isn't healthy and it doesn't look good. Mocking people for being overweight isn't right either of course. However, there must be some way to get through without being insensitive. I mean, if someone is alcoholic, you don't stand by and do nothing. Is right to compare being obese to being alcoholic? I dunno. However, the health risks are certainly nasty enough that saying nothing and allowing the situation to worsen seems equally as cruel. I don't know, I just don't know. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 19, 2010, 2:15 pm

Pokemon - Random Topics
Every time a new system is released by Nintendo, you must start your Pokemon collection all over in order to "Catch em all". It started with Red and Blue on the Game Boy Color. Then came Gold and Silver, which added a new batch. When the Game Boy Color went obsolete, it was time for the Game Boy Advance. Ruby and Sapphire were released with another new batch, and the game itself was missing many of the Pokemon from the previous games. The only way to get them all was to buy Colosseum for the Gamecube, AND FireRed and LeafGreen for the Game Boy Advance. Now that the DS is out, there's a new batch in Pearl and Diamond, and it doesn't have all of the Pokemon from the previous games in it. You can put the Pokemon you need from Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed and LeafGreen onto Diamond or Pearl through "Pal Park", but once you do, you can never get them back on the GBA game paks again, so you wind up ruining the collection you worked so hard on in those game paks. And once they're in Pal Park, you must go through the rigmarole of catching them all over again. Even if you decide to trade with friends or use a cheat code rather than buy all the games to collect them all, there are now a total of 493 Pokemon. And once the Nintendo systems after the DS and Wii are released, how much do you want to bet that you'll have to do this all over again, this time with well over 500 Pokemon to collect? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 19, 2010, 1:19 pm

If you're fat, don't blame everyone else. While I'm at it, don't blame McDonald's for your extra cargo. Ronald didn't kidnap you at knifepoint, take you to his restaurant, and feed you Big Macs until your stomach nearly burst. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 18, 2010, 7:17 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
When that stupid kid tired to sue McDonald's for making him overweight and that documentary, Super Size Me, came out, everybody started going on the "eating junk food and fast food is evil" attack fad like it was something new or scary. And anti-obesity people make it sound like those items cause extreme weight gain only. Agree with other posters that mental illness, discrimination and not taking personal responsibility are faults but the lack of proper education of what makes good nutrition, the high cost of healthy foods, and the modern inactive activities we do (such as typing on the net all day) makes it also a problem. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 18, 2010, 4:44 pm

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
I think Wal-Mart boned when they started putting in five stores in one area. Talk about being monopoly hog. I think the worst part about it is the actual stores. Stores are never clean (junk in the aisles), the workers seem moody or mean (meaning that they hate their jobs), and that they are crowded and full of people that are strange to everybody. It is a good store to shop in casually but I prefer Target more than anything -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 17, 2010, 11:11 pm

Nintendo (company) - Random Topics
I think Nintendo's downfall was when they continued to use cartigdeds for their games instead of using CDs. Well Nintendo is right in one point. CD-based game consoles before the Playstation did suck very bad and nobody could afford them. Playstation did improve everything that was wrong with CD console and made them popular. Also Nintendo tended to be a pain for third party game developer and rigidlly controlled them to the point where they could not take Nintendo's demands anymore. So most of the good games went to Playstation. Nintendo haves improved alot but they are not the mammoth they once were. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 17, 2010, 10:32 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
I agree that they need help, but still, when you are 400+ pounds, and nothing but what seems like lumps of fat, don't go blaming anybody or anything for it, and if its a health issue, that should mean you should of taken extra precautions (aka, watching what you eat) so you don't end up looking like the Michelin Man. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 17, 2010, 6:08 pm

There's going to be a live-action/CGI movie of Marmaduke. Why are there people out there who feel they must turn every single cartoon, comic strip, etc. into a live-action movie?

Obesity - Random Topics
All this progress we've made in learning to accept people of different colors, races, creeds, religions, sexual orientations, etc., and it seems little, if any, progress has been made when it comes to accepting people who are overweight or obese. Why is there always so much hatred towards fat people? What have they ever done to you? Yes, obesity is really unhealthy, I'm not saying it isn't (being slightly overweight is OK, but obesity is the state of being super-overweight). Some people are overweight because they're depressed or stressed out. They eat to calm down, gain weight, see they're fat, get depressed, and eat to comfort themselves. Insulting or attacking them for being fat just makes this vicious cycle even worse. If someone is super-obese (like 400+ pounds), they need help ASAP. Their life is in grave danger. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 17, 2010, 10:10 am

Obesity - Random Topics
Agreed. I myself am a bit overweight (about 265 at about 6'1"), but I play lots of hockey in my free time, and for my weight, I do have a little build on me. I would love to be more around 200 or 225, but in my case, I am happy with who I am, though I do try to lose weight. I would never, even if I was skinny, bust on someone who has a bit of a gut on them. The way I see it, its far more healthier to be a little bit overweight, and be happy with yourself, rather than worrying about trying to lose every single pound. If you are 400 pounds though, I don't care if you have a health issue, you and you yourself is at fault. No one ordered you to eat that 5th Double Quarter Pounder. No one ordered you to take on a 3rd dessert. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 17, 2010, 3:07 am

It's basically just a presidential pissing contest at this point. Obama scraps Bush's 2020 moon landings because Bush would get credit. Now he's apparently got his own plans for Mars in 2030 so he can get the credit. The next President will probably scrap those plans for his own pet project. In other words, it won't ever happen in our lifetimes. If only the Executive Branch could be cut out of the equation. Somebody needs to pick a plan and STICK WITH IT. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 16, 2010, 1:50 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
Yeah, I agree that unhealthy eating's a bad thing but, put it this way, anyone who's morbidly obese with more than 50 extra pounds has far more serious issues than a love of cheeseburgers and fries! No one gets to be 400 pounds overnight and no stable person would choose to barricade themselves in a [barely] portable prison with seemingly the entire world gawking and dissing them. Considering the many debilitatingly serious health problems (e.g. diabetes, early onset arthritis, heart disease,etc.)that often result from it, this is rather serious for the morbidly obese themselves as well as all their friends, families and co-workers. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 16, 2010, 12:05 pm

Too hip for the room. Still a striking car more than 40 years later. Attributing it's lack of success to styling is erroneous.
