Wings - TV Shows
If it makes Quagmire feel any better (outdated reference, I know), I've heard of this show and even saw a few episodes back in the day. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on February 25, 2014, 2:45 pm

2010s - Random Topics
The 2010s has continued the issues that started with the 2000s. However, it has only served to make them even more obnoxious. One obnoxious thing the 2010s has given us is the overuse of the expression "really?!?". I'm not sure who or what TV Show got seemingly everyone using this but use of it has spread trough the human race like a plague. In short, whenever anyone does something stupid or annoying, the 2010s has ensured us that the inevitable response to that will be "really?!?". Oh, some will try to be a bit more original and have the response be "Seriously?!?" but the spirit is still the same. While it may seem a trivial concern, it feels like one more step down the road of insanity that is the 21st century so far. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on February 15, 2014, 7:38 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
In Supersize Me, the guy also iirc, spent those days inactive. So, not only was he eating Mickey Dees three times a day, he was sitting around all day. His experiment is an extreme example of what happens when you eat fast food and are inactive. I think it should be obvious that you shouldn't be eating fast food that much, you certainly shouldn't be that inactive and you most definitely shouldn't be that inactive. Like everything else, you need to know your limits and enjoy responsibly. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 7, 2013, 12:46 pm

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
Why are they doing this? It's horrible enough to picket a funeral, but to picket the funeral of a child? How sick can a person be to not only do such a thing but to claim they're speaking for God? What they are doing is hate speech, why is the law allowing it? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on December 17, 2012, 10:56 pm

Angry Birds - Random Topics
I'm surprised that no one has pointed out that Angry Birds seems to be a ripoff of Crush the Castle. Either that or the similarities in the games are one heck of coincidence. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on November 23, 2012, 3:09 pm

Commercials playing before videos. I know they need to find some way to pay for the site but seeing the same trailer for a movie or some really annoying commercial repeatedly is annoying and has me wanting to click on the skip commercial button as soon as it will let me. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 15, 2012, 11:54 am

As a heads up, there appears to be a bug on the site where if you click on "Random Topics" the "A to Z" list will take you to the TV Shows rather then the proper alphabetical topics for Random Topics. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on June 4, 2012, 6:34 pm

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
I recently read that he made a video mocking the lady that claimed that he was the father of her child. At this point, it's well after the fact when I'm sure a lot of people had forgotten about the story. Isn't making a video mocking someone rather hypocritical given his whole anti-bullying stuff? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 26, 2012, 2:35 pm

Unsolved Mysteries - TV Shows
I still remember (even if even only vaguely) the episode about the Ghosts. One of them being a haunted bed where they had to destroy the bed to get rid of the ghost if I remember correctly. I remember another scene of a lunch box flying out of a guy's hands. I remember people telling me not to watch the episode and naturally, I watched it only for it to scare the living crap out of me. I know I wasn't the only one and I recall that becoming a rather infamous episode. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 16, 2012, 12:32 am

My Little Pony 'n Friends - TV Shows
What I don't understand is why people say this show was plot-less. I remember plenty of multi-part episodes that often had enough parts that they could be hard to follow if you missed an episode or two. Yes, things generally turned out okay for the ponies, with life being back to normal after the villain or monster of the week attack. The show however did have plots. One generally can't really have a ten part (yes, even if we're talking 10-15 minutes for each part, that's still getting into movie length) episode with characters running around cheering and giggling for the entire thing. So, what's the deal? Why do people say this show was plot-less? Granted, my memories of it are fuzzy, so maybe I'm only remembering the episodes with plots. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on March 22, 2012, 5:17 pm

Married with Children - TV Shows
I remember hearing that the show lost something like 75% of its viewers over the course of the last season. Does anyone remembering hearing this and knows if it's true? I remember them shifting the show around in the last season a couple of times which certainly didn't help things. Although, some might argue the declining ratings were responsible for the timeslot changes. I also remember hearing that the cast ended up hearing about the show's cancellation from fans who'd heard about it and asked them about it. Does anyone remember hearing about this? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on March 9, 2012, 6:30 pm

Don't worry, I have nothing against working for McDonalds. After all, someone needs to do it. If no one worked at McDonalds, what would one do when they have a Big Mac attack :)? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 30, 2012, 10:57 pm

Occupy Wall Street - Random Topics
Part of the problem is that, in the States at least, from what I've read, the number of unemployed is a a lot higher then the number of open positions. Another problem is the way people view jobs like McDonalds, retail etc. They see people working in these positions as uneducated and/or feel bad for them for having to 'suffer' with having such a job. It's annoying because our society honestly needs people to work these places of business. Society couldn't function if we are all big executives and no one stocked the shelves, flipped the burgers or washed the floors. Having said that, what you said still has value. Let's face it though, we're not all cut out for these high playing jobs. With some, you need to be a certain sort of person to get and keep a job like that. If you're in school, just look at these students that are at the head of the class. Look at the effort they're putting in and the sort of mentality they have. Yes, some make it look easy to the point where it's easy to get a feeling of entitlement towards the sorts of accomplishments they have. Let's face it, we're not all meant to go to one of the better Colleges or Universities and to take a high level degree. The problem is that, it's easy to expect the same sort of pay from any job that the sort of jobs these very expensive and high standard of students type degrees are geared towards. Not only that but it's easy to forget the dedication and long *long* hours some of these jobs require. Often, these are not the 9-5 sort of job where you put in your 8 hours and then go home. I think if a lot of us were to see the level of sacrifice and dedication these high paying jobs require that we'd be a lot less bitter about making less money. Now, that's not to say there isn't corruption or greed in these companies and in these positions. However, acting as though everyone should be handed the same sort of income unless you're ready, willing and able to put in that effort and dedication indeed, seems just as unfair. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 28, 2012, 11:05 pm

Occupy Wall Street - Random Topics
I was under the impression that the problem more or less gets down to the fact that there aren't enough jobs for all of the job seekers out there. The reason why it's so many young people is because a lot of these young people haven't had a chance to begin careers. Many are facing a job market where it's hard to get even a part-time job at McDonalds. They're facing competition from older job seekers in the same boat who even after years are still unable to get a career going and both groups are facing a situation after what sometimes gets into years later, end up facing competition from younger graduates. Some are facing the worry that they'll never be able to get a decent job and their education was for naught. The problem is, this is not a new situation. This has been going on for a good decade or so. Protesting like this however, is not going to fix things. As many others have said, they need leaders, people that can make a coherent and intelligent argument along with reasonable demands and a way to get those demands into action. Then they need to go to Washington and make those demands. Blaming the rich for everything is not the way to solve these problems. It's a situation where we all need to sit down and ask why this is happening. We all need to take responsibility for the role each of us has played in creating this situation. Screaming and yelling won't accomplish anything. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 26, 2012, 10:09 pm

Texting - Random Topics
My main issue with texting, especially given that you can use it to text to (as an example) instant messenger contacts is the idea that you're always connected. The line between one's online life, work life, family life and personal life (to name several) is blurring. Whatever happened to being offline or at least in away mode? I can't help but think of Star Trek's Borg. It seems silly, but is everyone being connected via a technology powered form of telepathy as far removed from what we currently have as we think? How far do we take it? I love the Internet and computers but I also love being able to be offline for a while as long as I know I can get back online later. A message or two is fine, but when it's getting to the point where we're giving out friends/family a play by play of even basic events in our lives, I think it's going too far. Again, how far do we take it? Will we someday see texting as it is now as the good old days when technology and communication was simpler? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 1, 2012, 12:41 am

1980s - Random Topics
I think a lot of people look back at the 80s with nostalgia for the same reason a lot of people look at the 90s with nostalgia. That reason being that I think a large portion of the people using this site were kids in the 80s or the 90s. I was a kid of the 80s. I remember the whole 'say no to drugs!' movement, I remember the years where the media taught kids to fear strangers and to think that everyone in the world wanted to abduct us. I don't remember hearing much about cocaine, crack or AIDS. I remember first hearing about AIDS in the early 90s or so. As for the cartoons existing solely to advertise the toys, even though I seem to remember hearing that with at least some, they created the toys *then* made the cartoon to advertise them. However, I still have trouble feeling that way about the cartoons. I think the commercials for the actual toys are far worse even though I know it's more or less 'you love the show, now here's the toys!' Although as one might say, the best form of advertising is an advertisement that doesn't feel like one. To use a modern example of an 80s cartoon, just look at all the fanart there is of MLP. It's all free advertising for the franchise once you get down to it. However, it doesn't feel like advertising. As for the live action shows, don't forget ALF. A lot of people loved that show and I think it's still fun to watch. I don't remember any of the financial stuff. I do remember (to an extent) the cold war and the worries that came alone with it. Overall though, I think a lot of people call the 80s the good old days is for the same reason people refer to any decade with that term. Perhaps it's not so much the decade which people refer that was a time of innocence or at least a good time as much as it was a time of innocence and/or a good time for the person reminiscing about that decade. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 17, 2011, 1:08 am

Feminism - Random Topics
One annoying feminism thing is how women complain about making less money on average. For a long time I wondered why this was. Why would employers pay women that are doing the same job and have the same qualifications less money? How could they legally get away with it? Only recently, I read an article (written by a woman btw) that called people on this. It mentioned how career choices are much more for a factor in this then unequal pay (which in my opinion, any degree of is not acceptable). I remember the same article also decrying a woman that balked at male students in need of assistance, the woman saying that 'they'll just make more anyway, so what's the point?' Again, that seemed like one of those attitudes that might have had a point in the 1950s, but in more modern times seems bitter and outright cruel. I also acknowledge that it comes from both sides. There are men out there that have an attitude about equal rights and regard women in such a way that one might end up wondering if said men have travelled forward in time from the 50s or were in suspended animation and only just woke up. As for one point that's not really feminism but is still interesting. In Firefox, the dictionary has the word misogyny but not the word misandry. A minor thing but still interesting. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on August 23, 2011, 3:07 pm
