Out of the Blue

Well I'm sure there are folks from Canada who feel this would be t-shirt weather, but it's been downright freakishly cold in these parts, which is not helping with my cold, which after my optimistic zinc-aided start, has taken a turn for the worse, having made the journey from my head to my chest. This got to the point where I busted out a pack of Cold Tylenol for relief last night, only to see that the expiration date hadn't just been passed, but downright left in the dust (we're talking over five years here). Of course I took them rather than brave the arctic air to hunt down replacements, and they worked fine... at least until I grow a second nose or my head explodes.

We should make good food illegal or maybe put warning labels on them. Seriously. We should even consider throwing people in jail if they sell candy to overweight kids

nice try...

I wonder how much he was paid for that?

I have a hard time believing that they could have paid him enough, in money anyway, to do that - although I can't help but wonder it Nimoy didn't get a little of that groovy 60's free love after they were through shooting. There is no other explanation.

-----------------------------------------
Of course I could be wrong... but really, what are the chances of that happening twice?

"Actually, instead of Bush urging people to be more healthy, why not make it mandatory in school to do a couple of hours hard physical workout a day?"

1st off the parents should be the ones that have to manage their weight. Of all the subjects that have a mandatory minutes per week, Physical Education is the ONLY one. I believe it works out to 45 minutes each day. Math and Language Arts are not given the same consideration, so a teacher could just teach math only 30 minutes a week.

Plus, some parents constantly try to have thier children opt out of PE. When I worked as a supervision aide, we got the written notes---Please escuse my child because he/she is allergic to the grass or more common I don't want my child having any P.E. because he has asthema(sp).

When this card is released I'm hoping it will drive down prices. I'd like to see the 9700 fall below 200.

"One of the named plaintiffs is a 15-year-old who said he weighs 400 pounds and has diabetes after eating McDonald's food every day since he was six."

The State should sue the parents for Neglect, and Child Abuse for feeding their child Fast food everyday! I hate stupid parents blaming their child's problems on others, Fess-Up You are bad parents!

That Bilbo song... oh boy, the sixties were strange...

Despite the fact that Nimoy didn't have his ears on my mind kept grafting them onto his head.

I wonder how much he was paid for that?

I wonder why everyone is throwing stuff around (is it clothing?)?

I know that both Nimoy and Shatner have recorded music but that is just beyond weird.

Saw this a long time ago, and it is still just a partial clip. I would like to (see? no) inflict the WHOLE video on someone, since it is even worse than the audio-only MP3 I have of it from years back that I always thought was the worst thing ever done in the history of "music". But the video tops it by miles. No words to describe it's badness.

- Actually down under in Oz land a judge did that for a case that got a link off of Blues. But for the life of me i cant remember what it was for.

I do remember that it was an idiot lawsuit.

And - The kids should sue the parents for neglect, as the parents gave them enough cash to eat at Mc D's everyday instead of cooking them home meals.

Either that or the kids were illegally working underage to feed their habit,... But then again i doubt that cos they are large and the only form of work they do is figuring out what to buy and then eating it!

Actually, instead of Bush urging people to be more healthy, why not make it mandatory in school to do a couple of hours hard physical workout a day? start em young and their habits will carry through the rest of their life. AND if they come up with some dumb excuse, like it hurts or they have a medical condition (Spelt F.A.T.) that prevents them from doing the exercise, they should be made to do double!!

Honestly i have no sypathy for those who are grossly over weight. A little fat is fine, cos nobody can be permanantly ripped. But if they are sitting down and their ass hangs over all sides of the chair then its open season! Their is NO excuse. Bad genetics do not cause it, bad hand in life doesent cause it, Fast food does not cause it. What causes it is Lazyness!

Ok Rant over.

The legal profession is in serious need of an idiot clause.

A Judge would hear the plaintiff's pathetic attempt at laying blame upon others for their moronic actions and summarily dismiss the case on the grounds of "You're an Idiot!"

but then the true idiots would sue them for defemation.

Atop Mt. Washington in New Hampshire had winds reported of over 150mph this morning. With this artic air around here in the Northeast US I wonder what that translates into as wind chill factor....*shudders*
