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

True Grit - Movie Series
Oops! I meant to say Matt Damon instead of Jude Law! Don't know why I got them confused. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 8, 2011, 1:05 pm

True Grit - Movie Series
Why the Oscars didn't give ANY Oscars to the participants of the 2010 version, I'll never understand. Jeff Bridges and Jude Law each gave one of the best performances of their respective careers and that Hallie Steinfeld did an incredible job nailing Mattie a shrewd and determined 19th century US frontier girl in quixotic circumstance for her first movie role! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 8, 2011, 1:03 pm

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
RIP Harry Morgan. Colonel Potter was easily my fave character on this show. Although I admit that I was sad seeing Henry become fish food [ I recall my mother crying when we saw it happen in '75], it was a relief to see someone show up who actually was able to corral ALL the Swamp Rats instead of letting Hawk and Ferret Face run amok and have their contests nonstop. Also, I liked how Potter was tough+ firm yet always fair and not without a sense of humor- just was needed for the sake of the wounded! Moreover, it was kind of ironic how he was able to command all these folks noticably taller than he! Of course, Mr. Morgan had had a career that went all the way back to the 1940's even playing a teenaged soda jerk in a movie that starred big bandleader Glenn Miller shortly before his own still mysterious death. 96 years is quite an accomplishment to reach and for that and his work, I salute him! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 8, 2011, 12:50 pm

Year at the Top, A - TV Shows
Seeing this, who would have predicted Paul Schafer would now be famous while Greg Evigan would be obscure? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 4, 2011, 7:15 pm

France - Random Topics
OK, I apologize to those French citizens who do NOT consider Napoleon a hero. It was unfair of me to forget about you all. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 4, 2011, 6:59 pm

Billy Joel - Music Groups
John, I agree it's not one of his best songs. However; the fact that he turned down a seven-figure sum for the publication of his nearly-completed autobiography not too long after his daughter went through some very tough times, DEFINITELY showed that his heart was in the right place. Not that many celebs care enough about their kids to turn down compensated publicity for their sakes but that's what he seems to have done and, if that's the case, I admire him for having that integrity. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 4, 2011, 6:52 pm

Alvin and the Chipmunks (Live action/CGI film) - Movie Series
OK, Robert. I won't tell ya! Sounds like something to avoid like plutonium! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2011, 4:50 pm

Jeferson Airplane - Music Groups
I agree the music was amazing but I can't help think it's just as well I've never met any of them! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2011, 4:46 pm

Christmas Story, A - Movie Series
Interesting points, Robert. Yeah, Ralphie's mom buried her head up to her ankles not wanting to deal with needing to pull out the planks in her eyes while dissing the neighbors' splinters! While I could understand but not condone a child lying under those conditions, I still maintain it was horrible that even as an ADULT narrator, he still had no regrets or remorse for his cowardice in frame Schwartz! And I dislike this movie very much! No surprise the 'star's' ex-great-aunt Barbara got her immortality ensured via June Cleaver but few folks remember anything about him despite starring in this movie. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2011, 4:42 pm

Blossom - TV Shows
John, It sounds as though both Mr. Hanks and Ms. Biaylik should have been insulted but it's hard to tell which of them should have been MORE insulted here! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2011, 4:33 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
Robert, Oh, that's whacked! Whom do we make out the Reality Checks to- and is there any chance they'll cash them? Hello, folks, it's JUST a movie depicting fictional characters and the folks onscreen are performers NOT documentary participants! Maybe someone should tell them not to wait by their furnaces Christmas Eve with milk and cookies for Santa Claus. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2011, 4:31 pm

Voyagers! - TV Shows
Geez, this show made the CARTOON version of "Back to the Future" seem like a documentary! Lame. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 30, 2011, 7:12 pm

Microwave ovens - Random Topics
Works great on popcorn and hot water but fair to middling at best on other foods. Too bad I can't live on popcorn and hot water! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 30, 2011, 7:03 pm

Growing Pains - TV Shows
John, I'm not sure how you get these confused. I mean, Michael J. Fox became a much bigger star than did Kirk Cameron. Also, Alex Keaton was likable but covered it up by pretending to be obnoxious whereas it was vice versa with Mike Seaver. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 30, 2011, 7:01 pm

Daniel Stern_(actor) - Celebrities
Maybe one day I'll forgive TPTB of "Wonder Years" for overwhelming the rest of the show with Stern's relentless narration. Aside from that, I have no real objections to him. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 30, 2011, 6:55 pm
