duh duh duh - TVs and Bees ...

Posted on 2007.05.05 at 17:52

so - here's what's going through my mind as i sit here waiting for another download to complete...

why does saturday TV suck - unless you really like sports or kids shows? plus there's nothing good on at night - unless you catch some family guy marathon on adult swim or whatever. it's like tv thinks it's ok to take the weekend off - just like everybody else - but this is DUMB!

and what the hell is a talking africanised bee supposed to mean in a frickin allergy commercial?! bees don't make me sneeze! jeeze! and the commercial is racist cuz the bee is talking like he's from colombia. is their product supposed to stop illegal immigration? are they preying on fears of illegal people who fly around in your living room? i don't get it! oh - wait! bees like pollen - ergo: an allergy drug that fights pollen?! - with a bee who looks like - ewwww god - i don't know what he looks like - he sure doesn't look like any bee i've ever seen. and i've seen a lot of bees.

but i think this commercial belies an underlying problem - mainly the end of the world...

which i think might have even been mentioned in the bible... (or one of it's pop-ups)...

well - here's how i see things: the world is going to end, and china's going to eat us - all because we are switching to digital TV in 5 years...

it's bad enough i'll be sitting here in my living room staring at a static-filled TV screen... with some fuckin talking killer bee flying around... there also won't be any food to eat! how am i supposed to watch tv without eating food?! that already sounds like the end of the world.

since 1/4th of the bees in the US are thought to have been killed by disorienting digital cell phone towers, reducing crop pollination and leading to rising food prices, JUST THINK what's going to happen when all our analogue TV stations suddenly switch over to digital!

fuck we'll all be eating dead honey bees!

problem solved - no more allergies!

... but killer bees moving next-door to white people and chinese people eating our dogs!

yessm - no not really into watching sports lately unless i have a reason

i still support the badgers - don't get me wrong

and i want the cowboys to prevail

but i always tought it was stupid to watch sports when you could be gardening or something

well - fridays...

i tried that a while ago and it really let me doon

but i know fridays change - sometimes they rock

so it's still possible i might stop by for a slumber party some friday

global warming...

i'm beginning to love it

it's like the one thing you can rely on

and it's about the only thing that proves me right all along...

Apparrently, they got all the data wrong. The rate at which the ice is melting is now 30 years ahead at which the computer models predicted. Oh joy.

That would be fucking funny if they turned around and said, it's all one big joke. Hell, they did it for years.

yes - i did hear about that too - but i'm not too surprised - and in a way i am deviously happy - not about the global warming, but about being right - yet there is nothing REALLY satisfying about seemingly forever swimming in a tide of ignorance

the nay-sayers always acted like the CREDIBLE scientists were just emotional retards making alarmist claims - and the nay-sayers didn't THEMSELVES come up with any science to refute them

i hate small-minded people like that - who project their own BS onto other people and then start fighting them instead of looking at themselves, working on their own problems and views, AND GROWING UP

the thing about science is that it is intrinsically CONSERVATIVE - it not only is based on slowly observed EVIDENCE - but scientists are not INTERESTED in being WRONG and losing their jobs or peer approval. So they tend NOT to overestimate! That's why it is so important to find PROGRESSIVE thinkers and put them into political office. But we don't support wise men or women - we only shoot them down because we want the attention or we have pent-up sibling rivalries that we want to play out on strangers.


thanks hun!

I heard that they were "over estimating" for media purposes...Which is very sad.

i watched TRIBAL LIFE on travel channel all weekend. i don't know why. but i did. it's interesting that there's life like that going on in other places of the world in 2007 when we are creating robots and flying cars.

wow - that sounds really interesting - i've done that too

i love the travel channel - that's where rachel ray (sp?!!!) got her start

although i don't get receive that channel right now

i really believe in watching "alternative-concepts tv" because yo people like us got the balls to think about these things for what they're worth

flying cars? futurama-like? i dunnnnoooooooooooo!?!!

what interests me is tiny nanotech microscopic-robots technology - good cuz they can help fight disease - but bad because they can reproduce and destroy the earth - i mean - wow - human-engineered mechanical viruses - wow

remember when they thought the segway (sp!!!) would be a flying machine? i was so bummbed when it turned out basically to be an old-folks shopping cart

Funny :)

TV hardly holds my attention anymore. My DVR has helped so that I can now watch the few shows I like whenever I want, like weeks later if I'm really lazy. There are only 2 shows I like on Adult Swim anymore. I used to watch it all week long but now it's just the 2 new shows on Saturday nights. One (Bleach) I've been keeping up with by downloading online and am only watching it on tv because it's nice to be able to just watch and episode, rather than reading it.

Also, that bee is rather weird looking and sounding.

yes - zee bee is queeeeeeeeer! - i wonder if they stole the idea from that simpson's character...

well - i don't watch much tv either - just background news and some shows

i've been out of touch w/ adult swim, but it rocks when you have time for it

now i'll have to watch out for bleach!

Adult Swim got too stupid for me. And I have a hard time watching crappy animation.

Bleach is great. I heard about it a lot online, since 2005. I didn't get around to checking it out and downloading it until early 2006 and I've liked it from day one. I wouldn't have the entire anime series so far (124 episodes) on my computer otherwise. Adult Swim is up to episode 35 or something now.

oh - i think i do remember wanting to see bleach - or else i liked a little of what i saw

you're right - adult swim got really dumb - it started even before the yammi yammi goochy goochy girls or whatever they were called
