CSI Miami - TV Shows
Not a bad question, Bob NYC. The best answer I can come up with is that his voice is somewhat dramatic but, as shallow as this sounds, it somewhat is at odds with his appearance that seems more suitable to "Mad Magazine" than a dramatic character. If radio serials still existed, I could see him making a solid career doing that but it's been about half a century since that time. Oh well, even if we don't get it, I guess there are enough viewers who keep tuning in and he seems to have learned from his "NYPD Blue" dispute. Now why there needs to be more than one show covering the CSI franchise is something I don't understand either. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 27, 2011, 9:52 am

Miss America Pageant - Random Topics
Stephanie, That does explain a bit. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 19, 2011, 8:54 am

3rd Rock from the Sun - TV Shows
VeritechRyan, Thanks for clearing that up! That makes perfect sense as to HOW the studio audience sounded so 'spontaneous'. Oh well. Still, I liked the show. It's OK not to like this show if one doesn't. To each their own. I feel the same about "Sex in the City"- never could stand it in spite of all the hype that went into it but I'll save why for THAT board. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2011, 12:36 pm

Clint Eastwood - Celebrities
Agree with you two! Clint- you've ALREADY got fame, a thriving directing career and a good amount of dinero in the bank so WHY trash yourself and your family this way?! What an AWFUL note to cap one's accomplishments! BOO! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2011, 12:31 pm

Laverne & Shirley in the Army - TV Shows
Thanks for clarifying that, JayD. Too bad the Army didn't turn the whole cast into its mainstay of Spam [the(barely)edible variety]- so we could have been spared this. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2011, 12:27 pm

Miss America Pageant - Random Topics
If it turned out Stephanie had stock in this pageant, it wouldn't come as a total surprise to me. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 17, 2011, 11:01 am

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The - TV Shows
Anyone else wish that Arthur Dent would have found something to wear besides his pyjamas and robe? I could see being caught unawares when the planet exploded but I don't see why he couldn't have bartered/bought something else to wear instead of the pyjamas for several YEARS! Even if he bathed regularly, if that's all he ever wore, they'd have gotten rather funky in very short order. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:33 pm

Common Era - Random Topics
Ironically, the first place I ever saw 'B.C.E.' 'A.C.E.' -Before the Common Era/ After the Common Era was in a divinity department when I was in college! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:24 pm

Atheism - Random Topics
Everyone can believe [or not believe] whatever they want. For me, it boils down to being more willing to risk saying 'oh well' if it turns out that there's nothing after this life than to risk having to say 'uh-oh!' if there IS an afterlife! Oh, and prayer has gotten me through a LOT so I don't see how something nonexistant could answer much less hear my prayers. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:16 pm

Best Buy - Random Topics
Anyone else seen these holiday ads in which this woman with a major chip on her shoulder assaults Santa who does nothing more than say 'ho ho ho'? It might have helped had Santa acted obnoxious or bullying but this one seemed genuinely friendly as though he could have fit right into "Miracle of 34th Street" so what was her problem and why are we [the buying public] supposed to cheer for her and jeer at Santa? And I say this as someone who thinks the Christmas season has quite a bit of Santa Saturation! Oh well, I wasn't going to buy anything from Best Buy anyway. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:12 pm

Super Dave - TV Shows
The show wasn't all that great but I thought it was interesting that he was actually the brother of Albert Brooks- and their original surname was EINSTEIN! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 15, 2011, 12:47 pm

Vlad The Impaler - Celebrities
Just so folks know- he got the name of 'the Impaler' for how he sometimes executed folks and it wasn't through the chest. The method's not something that most folks would want to have recreated for dramatic purposes but let's put it this way, it could have been the origin of the "Happy Days" catchphrase 'sit on it'! Yeah, truth's not only stranger but it can at times be NASTIER than fiction. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 15, 2011, 12:29 pm

Laverne & Shirley in the Army - TV Shows
JayD, So which of them got turned into a talking pig? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 14, 2011, 4:13 pm

Texting - Random Topics
No, DolFan, You are NOT the last holdout on the planet. I'm not about to get one of those gizmos that make it look like one's getting spastic on a cigarette case. Scary thing is that I know that more and employers and even colleges are REQUIRING their employees and students use those things. And I recently got a flu shot and they asked me if I wanted to sign up to get my medical stuff texted to me. WHY are employers, medical and educational authorities trying to push having very private info sent through thin air which could easily be intercepted by hackers? Only if my job ever makes it compulsory, will I break down and get one. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 14, 2011, 4:02 pm

Back to the Future - Movie Series
DolFan, Segways are similiar to hoverboards- though they stay on the ground and cost most folks several months' rent. Still, I agree and would prefer hoverboard to Twitter,too! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 14, 2011, 3:49 pm

Jennifer Aniston - Celebrities
DolFan, Thanks- of course if that list was accurate it would describe the 'hottest celeb woman in our lifetimes'. To say Jennifer Aniston [or any contemporary woman] is the hottest of ALL time shows that the participants aren't making even the slightest attempt to consider any history going back more than a few decades. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2011, 12:53 pm

Texting - Random Topics
I'd agree excecpt that the only grunts to be made will be when folks wreck their cars while texting when they should have both eyes on the road and both hands free for the steering wheel and controls. Even those folks who text off the road look like they're playing with cigarette cases! Hello, humanity survived how many millions of years without these gadgets so why can't folks now endure even ten minutes without 'em? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2011, 12:48 pm

Brady Kids - TV Shows
I agree in retrospect, John. However; being that this show premiered shortly after the time of Nixon's Visit to the People's Republic of China in 1972 I had a fascination with seeing whatever traditional Chinese people, places and things that had somehow survived the ravages of the Cultural Revolution. Hence; the idea of pandas living in the Brady household intrigued me enough to tune in but I don't think I made it through even one full cartoon episode because they [and the rest of the cast] were BORING! I never realized how much the show needed the parents and Alice until I saw this adult-free version. LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2011, 12:44 pm

Jennifer Aniston - Celebrities
I read that she got voted 'Hottest Woman of All Time'- excuse me but no! I have nothing against her but can anyone imagine her face launching 1000 ships?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 10, 2011, 5:33 pm

New Coke - Random Topics
Travoltron, For a brief time, one COULD get both New Coke and Classic Coke. As to why they came up with this? Well, I believe that the original patent gave the company exclusive rights to the formula for 100 years and they took the original Coca Cola off the shelves and distributed the New Coke around the 99 year anniversary so let's just say it wouldn't totally surprise me if this turned out to have been a strategy to keep from losing the formula. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 10, 2011, 4:48 pm
