Do you think...?

Do you think Michael J. Fox is really good at making Shake'n'Bake?

Do you think Waldo would wear camouflage to hunt?

Why has no villain ever tried to use Raid against Spiderman?

Why couldn't Captain Planet ever make Major?

Seriously though, what kind of messed up ranking system is that? It's... a few kids, Captain and then the spirit of the Earth. Really?

She couldn't have made him General Earth or something? Why did it have to be Captain? Is this a fight against polluters for the environment or a football team?

Captain Planet, man, it's bullshit.

How to really stop bullying.

I'm really starting to get annoyed at all this anti-bullying stuff I'm seeing on TV. It's not because I support bullying, it's because I think it's just plain ridiculous.

Let's have a meeting! A special on TV! Let's talk it out! Maybe a Youtube video or twelve?

No. That's not going to cut it. Do you want to know how to REALLY stop bullying? If the Internet has taught me anything, it's that if you have rules they must be enforced with the will of a mad dictator or they won't be taken seriously.

Schools need to step the hell up and enforce their rules. Maybe the teachers, maybe they need to hire security guards. And if the schools won't do anything? Students need to take care of it. If you get bullied, beat the fucking shit out of whoever is bullying you.

I got bullied... one time in second grade. Some kid decided it would be amusing to kick me as I walked up a hill. I turned around, punched him so hard his nose was broken and then casually kept going. I got into trouble, but not much. He never bothered me again, in fact he went out of his way to be friendly. Whatever trouble you get in from doing something like that will be more than worth the message you'll send to anyone thinking of doing anything similar to you in the future.

Bad ideas for Halloween costumes.

Halloween is coming up and I'm sure you want to know what you or your children should go as. Here's a few really great bad ideas.

  • Casey Anthony. Bonus points if you have a young daughter who dresses as Cayley Anthony. Even more bonus points if you follow her around holding duct tape.
  • One of the Twin Towers. Bonus points if you have a little airplane sticking out of the costume.
  • School shooter. Wear a school uniform and carry a fake AK-47.
  • Zombie Michael Jackson.
  • Zombie Caylee Anthony.
  • Zombie Amy Winehouse.
  • Zombie Osama Bin Laden.
  • Zombie Steve Jobs. Bonus points if the black sweater you wear says "iDied."

Do you have any other ideas? Leave a comment.

Would a 2012 Obama defeat mark the end of politics in America?

That's not the alarmist ramblings of an Obama fanboy, I'm really wondering that.

What do I mean? Well, look at politics recently. Republicans are doing everything they can do make Obama lose the next presidential election. They say no to every idea, they vote against anything he or his supporters propose. They're completely and utterly unwilling to compromise on anything if they think it would make him look good, even if they end up hurting the country in the process. We've had obstructionism in politics by both sides for a very long time, but lately it seems far, far worse.

What I wonder is, if Obama DOES lose in 2012, will that be a signal that this new, more aggressive kind of obstructionism works? Not just works, but works on a grand, president-defeating level? Will that mark the end of traditional politics forever? After all, if Republicans see that this can work, why ever stop?

I don't see how we could ever go back to honest debates and compromise, even for short periods of time if this works. That's the reason I'm going to vote for Obama in 2012, to help send a message that this kind of "we wanna win, fuck the country" stuff won't fly. That's why I think you should, too.

Thoughts?
