You know, to call these people 'Neanderthals' would be a slap in the face to Neanderthals. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 12, 2011, 3:20 pm

Green Acres - TV Shows
I loved this show as a child (my parents never cared for it), but I only developed a true appreciation for this show when I revisited it as an adult (college student). To echo what others have said, this sitcom was way ahead of it's time. I loved how it, in so many ways, poked fun at itself and had this seeming self-awareness of itself being a television show (ie: last portion of opening credits are superimposed over a scene of Lisa and Oliver sleeping in their bedroom. As the last name fades out, Lisa wakes up, sits up in the bed and awakens Oliver to tell him that she had just had the strangest dream. Oliver inquires about it and she continues 'I just dreamt that the name was floating above our bed'). The writers were also very skilled at taking a gag at the beginning of the show and repeatedly blindside you with it for the remainder of the episode and never wear it out (ie: the Hotcakes bubbling the tune 'Auld Lang Syne'). One of these days, I will probably buy a DVD set of this show (assuming it's available). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 10, 2011, 10:35 am

Chuck E. Cheese's - Random Topics
All true. But they do make some tasty hot wings (at least the one I've been to did). Otherwise, I will NOT set foot in the place if I don't have to (and I pull ALL the stops to 'redirect' my kids thinking when they even hint at wanting to go to Chuck E. Cheese). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 6, 2011, 4:54 pm

Wonderbug - TV Shows
Ahhhhhh The Wonderbug. Always enjoyed the theme song to that one. As I recall, there was this one character on the show who, when they got into a jam, would start concocting some wildly fantastic plan only to be interrupted by one of the other characters who has a more rational plan. The guy would always start out something like this: "I have an idea! All we need is 16 garbage cans. A bowling ball. 8000 feet of dental floss, 3 cross-eyed chimpanzees and a roller rink. What we'll do is...." Just once, I actually wanted to hear how one of these insane plans would play out. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 9:03 pm

New Zoo Revue - TV Shows
Yep. It's still out there on YouTube. I'm not going to provide a link considering the rather crude nature of the humor. Not what you'd call 'PC'. But, it's still out there. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 8:50 pm

Hee Haw - TV Shows
This was required Saturday evening viewing in my grandparents house when I was a kid. First Lawrence Welk (that was my Grandmothers favorite) then Hee-Haw (my grandfathers fave). One did not dare even THINK of asking to change the channel while either of these were on the air. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 3:22 pm

New Zoo Revue - TV Shows
Found some funny stuff on YouTube several years ago regarding this show. Story is: Supposedly the actors who played the animals were some old-school off-off-Broadway actors who had the raunchiest senses of humor and would do little improvised skits to entertain the crew between set-ups. LOL funny stuff if you can find it still. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 3:19 pm

Rifleman, The - TV Shows
Yes, going in, you know that ol' Lucas McCain's gonna shoot somebody before the show ends, but all in all it's still a pretty watchable show. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 2:59 pm

Popeye - TV Shows
Yeah, what was up with the name change for Bluto/Brutus. My little brother resolved the problem in his own mind by simply referring to him as "Bruto." -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 2:50 pm

Supertrain - TV Shows
This had to be one of the dumbest ideas for a show for the entire decade. I think they were trying to capitalize on the popularity of shows like The Love Boat, but yet pull in the Sci-Fi fans as well. BONED! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 2:46 pm

Wasn't this show kinda billed as a '90210' for regular kids? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 2:40 pm

I only watched this show for the opening credits. After that- I'd lose interest about five minutes into the episode. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 2:34 pm

Cracked (magazine) - Random Topics
Cracked had it's moments, but those were few and far between. Bottom line- it was 'a Poor Man's' MAD Magazine all the way around. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on December 28, 2010, 4:41 pm

Facebook - Websites
"Friedrich, But wouldn't just putting all your far flung friends on an email list accomplish the very same thing with a lesser probability of an outsider hacking into that list than with Facebook?" Honestly, I don't know for sure. The way I see it, I'd rather make it available for my friends and family to access at will rather than clog up their email in-box with something they might not be interested in in the first place. For example (this is a totally made up example, BTW), I may love my cousin Jerry dearly, but I might not really care if my cousin Jerry is keeping a daily diary on Facebook of what color socks he wears to work but at least he's not sending it to my email in-box everyday and cluttering it up. On Facebook, I can take a more passive approach and choose to ignore. However, as for the security concerns, I do know that people hack into email accounts to steal information all the time. I think that as long as you take common sense security measures as well as familiarize yourself with the privacy settings, it's no more dangerous than using amazon.com or paying with a credit card at your favorite casual dining restaurant. Who knows- I may decide a couple of years from now that Facebook is for the birds and make an appointment with George Clooney's doctor for a check up. ;) But for now, I'm okay with it. I am in no way trying to convince anyone that my opinion is the right one (I might be dead wrong and if I am so be it). Just logging my opinion based upon my 2+ years of personal experiences with the site. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on December 27, 2010, 1:38 pm
