World War II - Random Topics
If I had been in Congress back in 1941 even knowing what I know today, I would have unhesitately voted for the US to declare war after Pearl Harbor- and as a son and nephew of World War II veterans, I take a pride in how the US and its allies rallied and achieved many positive things for the world during that time and its aftermath. However; considering that at least 60 million soldiers and civilians DIED in this war, countless others were permanently physically and/or psychologically maimed by it and innumerable homes, farms and historic sites were irreperably destroyed by it; I can't pretend that this was a clean, painless, happy time. War exacts a very high price even amongst the victors- and I'm not talking dinero. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 24, 2012, 3:39 pm

Compulsory Voting - Random Topics
Does this show endless lines of voters with 'enforcers' standing behind them with riding crops- and what channel broadcasts it? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 17, 2012, 2:19 pm

Ben & Jerry's - Random Topics
Just curious. Does anyone know if they're planning any flavors supporting HETERO marriage[e.g. Birds of Different Feathers Can Flock Together Orange+ Pineapple], or, for that matter flavors supporting divorce [e.g. Split But Happy Bananas] or singlehood[e.g. One's Not The Loneliest Number Nougat ]? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 17, 2012, 2:16 pm

Joe Bag of Donuts, To each their own, I say. However; I agree that these days I DO seem to stand out in my city for being one of the few folks under 50 who doesn't have one! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 13, 2012, 12:30 pm

Chad Ochocinco - Celebrities
PYLrulz, Did he never consider that the possibility that he'd get married or have kids who'd have his name passed onto BEFORE the name change? Also, it doesn't seem as though he's Hispanic so I don't get that angle either. Oh, and just so everyone knows the only time one would say 'ocho cinco' [ eight five] postal code, etc. NOT when trying to say 'eighty-five'- his jersey number. Well, I say he should count his blessings that that lion ONLY peed on him. What was he thinking getting so close to that critter anyway? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 13, 2012, 12:25 pm

State Fairs - Random Topics
I never bothered with the musical stuff but always had fun with seeing the agricultural demonstrations and exhibits. I think it's fascinating to know where [and HOW] our food is produced. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 10, 2012, 12:33 pm

Ancient Aliens - TV Shows
Friedrich, I'm glad you view purely on entertainment value instead of buying into it. For me, I think our human ancestors were a LOT smarter than these 'theorists' give them credit for and able to do a great deal with far fewer tools but sheer smarts and sweat. Forgive me if I've said so other places on this site, but I believe that the surest proof of intelligent life on other planets is the fact they NEVER visit here.

Sitcom - Random Topics
JayD and kingbk, I'm totally WITH you all on this! "Modern Family" is proof that good sitcoms aren't entirely extinct while "Full House" is proof that lame ones aren't a brand new phenom. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 10, 2012, 12:18 pm

KFC - Random Topics
I don't think it's been the same since they scrapped the rotating barrel signs AND turned it from Kentucky Fried Chicken to the acronym [too many syllables to say?]I haven't eaten there in ages and don't miss it. However; if one wants the best fried chicken possible, I say go to a local mom n' pop meat-and-three that has the best,most detailed customer reviews in an online city search! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 10, 2012, 12:12 pm

Bewitched - TV Shows
I say it boned even before Darren #2 come aboard with the death of Marion Lorne [Aunt Clara]. Obviously, Aunt Clara being a witch and the show being a comedy, they couldn't ever say Aunt Clara had died but the audience all knew she'd never come back. As much as I liked Alice Ghostley's other work, I always considered Esmeralda a poor sub for Aunt Clara especially since she was klutzy for no good reason and whiny as opposed to klutzy due to old age but goldenhearted. Even Samantha seemed to have little if any liking for Esmeralda while she [and Elizabeth Montgomery] genuinely DID adore Aunt Clara [and Marion Lorne]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 6, 2012, 1:20 pm

Sasha Baron Cohen - Celebrities
Why did the Academy let him anywhere near there knowing he was going to pull something? Also, having heard from others what he pulled in "Bruno" , I have to wonder what would he have to pull for his 'fans' to say 'Yeah, he went too far! That was too nasty for me to spend my hardearned money to help support!' -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 6, 2012, 1:08 pm

Barbara Eden - Celebrities
Joe, I agree that Miss Eden's a very talented lady [not to mention she was downright smokin'] but you do understand that Jeannie was a character she played NOT Miss Eden herself. If Miss Eden had had those powers I think she'd have used them to spare herself far more serious stuff than JR getting shot- like the horror of her only child dying. Anyway, to keep this post from becoming a total bummer, I invite you to check her out on a site that rhymes with Few Moom in which she sings "Spinning Wheel". You won't care WHO did it originally after watching her perform it, LOL! Yep, I agree she's never boned! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 6, 2012, 12:59 pm

Whitney Houston - Celebrities
What a tragedy! She had such a beautiful voice before those demons destroyed it- and may have destroyed HER. I pray she's at peace and that her shattered mother and daughter will find the strength to cope with what's happened. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 11, 2012, 7:28 pm

Your Show Of Shows (The Sid Caesar Show) - TV Shows
A somewhat forgotten but then- revolutionary FANTASTIC sketch comedy show which would prove the ancestor of Classic "Saturday Night Live" amongst others. Sid Caesar ruled [and rocked] here with an encyclopedic assortment of characters with seemingly hundreds of accents/languages but was very ably helped by such wonderful castmates as Carl Reiner [who'd later use the experiences to form the concept of "The Dick Van Dyke Show"], Imogene Coca [who'd been in television as far back as 1939 and would work into her late 80's] and Howard Morris [ later Ernest T. Bass of "Andy Griffith Show" fame]. Moreover, these performers who also wrote much of their own material were aided by other writers who'd become famous in their own rights including Mel Brooks. Did it bone? To some degree, yes. The network suits thought it would be better to scatter these talents to several shows so Miss Coca was somewhat unwillingly spun off to her own show and replaced by Nanette Fabray. Miss Fabray was/is a perfectly good performer [and was noticably more attractive] but she lacked Miss Coca's uninhibited zaniness on the stage which gave her characters that extra oomph! Ironically enough both Mr. Caesar and Miss Coca would admit to being painfully shy people who barely conversed with each other offstage but there was undeniable magic that happened when those two performed their wide assortment of characters together and with the others! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 30, 2012, 6:06 pm

Anyone else saddenned that for many kids, THIS is the closest thing they've been exposed to re life in the Inca Empire and it has ZILCH to do with it? Thanks alot Disney for another lame try!

If the US Congress wants to get serious about the 'Net, how about putting forth bills punishing spammers, virus senders, hackers and, especially, laws with teeth re identity thieves? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 28, 2012, 10:00 am

Alpha-Bits - Random Topics
Jp, I wouldn't be surprised if they put out a Suduko Cereal with that idea. I always thought Alpha-Bits was made for parents who thought their kids were too young for alphabet soup. LOL I can't say I ever really liked it myself. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 28, 2012, 9:55 am
