1, 5 & 8 were rules in our house. I have no idea where we came up with them.
No, I would say it’s the school’s that are completely lost. This is disgraceful!
I would much rather the govt. bailed out college students than bailing out bankers. If Uncle Sam spent half the $$$ on education that it spends on the military, our country might actually produce educated masses that would lift our country up. What is the drawback to educating our children? I see PLENTY of proof right now in what happens when we don’t educate kids. Education should be a RIGHT not a privilege.
I’m going to have to call bullshit on the Hate Fest that’s been going on with the critics over The Lone Ranger. That movie got so much bad press before it even came out it was ridiculous. Never in the history of movies have I ever heard such a big stink being made over one character. There are a hundreds of movies that did not cast exactly according to the book. Oh my god people deal with it. Everyone acted as though Johnny Depp had personally destroyed everything good about Native Americans. I went in to watch this movie very much expecting to not like it, due to the way the press and the public at large had vilified it. I personally wonder if even a quarter of the people complaining about the movie had even SEEN it. Sorry people but Johnny Depp was great. I never once thought he was making fun of or demeaning Native Americans in his portrayal of Tonto. I felt like he came off as much more interesting and smarter than the Lone Ranger. I will absolutely see the movie again and recommend it to anyone that asks. I don’t understand why the public held this movie up as being more un PC because Depp wasn’t actually Native American. Seems to me that there must have been something more going on behind the scenes and someone was intentionally trying to tank this film. You have to admit there is something wrong when a movie like this gets rated lower than crap like Knocked Up or (ironically) the remake of 21 Jump Street. Talk about not funny.
I used to like Will Smith okay. When he was on the Fresh Prince all the sitcoms had about the same degree of talent. In his movies Will always seems to play himself. Will Smith Airforce pilot, Will Smith matchmaker, etc. The best thing he ever did was Enemy of the State and let’s face it he had Gene Hackman, John Voight, Regina King & Lisa Bonet in a great cast. He absolutely did not carry that film by himself but it was really good. It’s hard to find well written films first off but he just doesn’t seem to step outside his comfort zone when he does make a film. He needs to stop pushing his kids on the world and get back to doing some serious acting. If he’s not really interested in doing any hands on parenting I don’t see why he’s so damn involved in trying to force his son to be a movie star. Will may have gotten to where he is by hard work but he can’t do all the work for his kids. They act like they somehow deserve acclaim and respect that they haven’t earned. Hell those kids aren’t even properly educated. I’m not saying you have to have a college degree but the basics can’t hurt. For whatever reason I can’t stand his wife either and I feel like she too has ridden his coat tails more than she should. I would much rather be around someone that had to work to get what they have because they seem to appreciate it more. That group comes off like the world owes them something and they straight up haven’t earned it. I’d be much more impressed if either kid chose a project of their own and worked to make it a success instead of Daddy buying everything for them. You can’t buy talent.
Well played therblig. I see what you did there - hair/heir. Masterful burn.
Generation Xers are actually (currently) around early 40’s to early 50 ‘s. The book was published in 1991 when the author was 30 years old (which means you were 5). This quiz has nothing to do with Gen X.
I’d be willing to bet Beiber thinks they’re badass. There are still guys walking around that think mullets are badass. Think about it.
Has anyone here actually read Generation X? The author of the book was born in 1961 (so most people are off by a decade or more when they think they’re Gen X age). The book came out ages ago and the media is still using outdated terms to refer to kids that weren’t even born when the book was published. Time to come up with some new terminology for more recent generations.
She looks incredible. Not everyone has a professional photographer on call (snobs).
I for one will openly deny he’s a great movie maker. Half his movies star him (acting as himself) and he’s generally hooked up with some completely mismatched female. He originally wanted Brooke Shields to be with him in Manhattan but she thought he was too creepy so they went with Mariel Hemingway. Yeah. CREEPY. I know everyone has their own opinion but you said nobody could deny how “great” he is and I just did.
Paul McCartney ~ 1972, a Swedish court fined McCartney £1,000 for cannabis possession. Soon after, Scottish police found marijuana plants growing on his farm, leading to his 1973 conviction for illegal cultivation and a £100 fine. As a result of his drug convictions, the US government repeatedly denied him a visa until December 1973. Arrested again for marijuana possession in 1975, in Los Angeles, Linda took the blame, and the court soon dismissed the charges. If they were this harsh to a Beatle why not Beiber?
You got: Mutt!
You’re a renegade, an artist, and you will not be confined to any sort of box. You have tons of real-life experience that makes you a great dinner-party guest with tons of stories. Plus, you are cute in that “je ne sais quoi” kind of way.
After seeing the (after) photos it makes me wonder why the rich and famous don’t all go there to have their plastic surgery procedures. I didn’t see one person that looked “done” they all looked very natural. As far as the jaw/chin shaving goes, several of the before photos looked like they had a severe under bite or that their jaw was out of alignment. I don’t blame them a bit for wanting to correct it. I didn’t see anyone on here that looked worse after the procedure. What is wrong with wanting to feel better about the way you look when it looks so natural? I didn’t think any of them looked “Americanized”. Just because it’s your heritage to have a massive jaw/underbite you should wear it with pride? Forget that!
What about pralines?
I’m talking about some of those women on reality TV that seem to believe that it is somehow a true size and wear it like a badge of superiority. I thought we were talking about how the media (and people spot lit by the media) distorts girls perception of their bodies. I’m certainly not talking about average women.
How about if the fashion industry goes back to sizing clothes realistically. I have to laugh at all the women that say they are a size zero. Zero? Really? How can you be a size zero? Does that mean if you turn sideways you disappear? Seriously can we go back to putting real sizes on clothes again? Just because your pants say a size zero doesn’t change the fact that you are really a size 5 (or whatever). Sizing these days is a joke.
Sorry but when you can get REAL chocolates ~ Ghirardelli and Lindt right here in the U.S. why on earth would you want to eat any of that so called “chocolate” from wherever? Eat some honest to goodness cocoa filled chocolates and then try to eat M&Ms. They’re foul! There are plenty of great chocolate bars and candies on either side of the pond. This article is apparently just trying to sell the candy it featured.
Reading this article it occurs to me that the author is blessed with family members that are understanding and loving. How very fortunate indeed.
I always read the comment section of anything site that has them (that’s where half the fun is). Thanks so much for such a great and moving piece.
There are half as many poor people because the other half died from living on the streets because they lost their jobs & homes.
He’s 42 so that’s practically 50? No wait 100! Yeah that’s solid logic. Cause look at all the 42 year olds walking around with canes. There are loads of good looking actors out there. Just because you have a fixation with this guy doesn’t make him the sexiest guy around.
Oh my god people - how serious were you at age 20-21? Did you have your whole life planned out then? She’s financially Independant, she’s not driving her car into people, cars or buildings every other weekend and she’s NOT PREGNANT! There’s always going to be people sitting around judging every little thing others do. Good for her that she isn’t bulimic or anorexic or on antidepressants because she worries about the stupid hateful crap people say about her. She has her shit together a lot more than the majority of 21 year olds I see out there. If she was a guy we wouldn’t even be having this conversation. Double standard bullshit.
How about raising the minimum wage period. Personally I wouldn’t want to do many of the “unskilled” jobs others do. Cleaning up after others and dealing with arrogant jerks. Why is it that some people have to belittle these jobs? I don’t understand why so many people are so hateful towards people that are trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. It takes all kinds of people doing all kinds of jobs to make this world function. Why do actors get paid so much money? Nobody has a problem when they get paid millions for dressing up and playing make believe. What about lobbyists? There are LOADS of people that have essentially useless jobs and they make insane amounts of $$$. How about athletes? So why must you single out fast food workers? It’s like certain people feel like they have to single out a group of folks to blame for everything. Who knows, you could be out of work next week (have some compassion people). Thing is - I thought they outlawed slave labor in the US.
The one that was the absolute worst was George Clooney. It’s like ~ this is George today (before) and this is George 20 years ago (after). That one looked like someone was just screwing around to see how young they could make him look. Took every line off his face & darkened his hair. I’ve never seen Clooney photoshopped like that. Seems like they always show him fairly au natural. What gets me is how rough Britney seems to look every time I see her. Maybe they used to photo shop her face more before. Her nose seems bigger than it used to. Seems like they’d photo shop those sloppy black roots if anything.
I don’t think it’s race I think its $$$ and gender. Look at Woody Allen. Actors still line up around the block to work with him and gush over what a genius he is. The guy is a pedophile and nobody cared because he’s rich and he’s male. Do you think any woman of ANY color would get away with that behavior? Hell NO! This country is still run primarily by men, so until that changes, I doubt that sex crimes will be taken as seriously as they should be. Can you imagine if Gaga was raping young boys? Yeah that would get shut down real fast.
I also came to see what everyone was shouting about. Is it a big deal because bands/artists mainly release singles now? Is it (like someone else asked) because it was a secret? Before iTunes back in the days of vinyl and CDs bands released whole albums all the time. Then again you want something amazing. Let’s talk about Pink Floyd The Wall (and the movie) The Who Tommy (and the Rock opera) Led Zepplin, The Song Remains The Same. David Bowie and his amazing catalog of music and videos, Annie Lennox/The Eurythmics and THAT music and THOSE videos. People are acting like this person is the only one in the history of the world who ever recorded/released a full album and videos. If you’re gonna talk about who’s the “Queen” let’s talk about Freddy Mercury and/or Elton John. If you’re speaking of the King get in line behind MJ & Elvis for starters. There are plenty of enormously talented musicians/singers out there. She’s not that special when you look at the talent pool she swims in.
Using a timer works wonders (as long as you know the proper cook time). You can pick one up for very little $$ and if you cook frequently I’d make sure you have @ least 2 on hand. I rarely cook one thing at a time if I’m fixing a whole meal.
They look like he attached pearl Covered ankle weights to the shoes. FUGLY!
He’s meticulous about how something is filmed? Have you seen that joke he calls a video? That is the worst thing I’ve ever seen. It’s like - Oh did your 13 year old nephew just get a video camera, so you let him shoot your new song? The green screen effects are horrible. Kim looks like she is on planet…..uh Kim. She has no expression during the whole thing. He acts like he’s screwing her and she looks like she’s trying to decide which outfit she’s going to wear next week. I mean did Kanye even watch the video before it was released? His video production skills are right up there with his fashion design skills…or should I say DOWN there!
They’re all getting random body and finger tattoos. Get a tattoo that means something to you don’t just slap something on there to be like everyone else. You don’t have to cover yourself in them before you hit 23yrs old. Trendy stuff you love in your twenties might not be your bag by the time you hit your 30’s or later. If it means something personal to you - no regrets.
I agree with what someone else said. Use the money to hire more people (yes actual warm bodies) to moniter and weed out abusers. So many “services” these days = the client getting stuck on the phone with a computer for endless transfers or instructions to push # 1, 2 or 3. I would love to go back to the good old days when live humans handled inquiries and customer service. Not to mention it would be great to fund more jobs that are truly needed. When a con artist/rip off artist has to deal with a real person I think they are easier to detect. Also when folks need help with the services it’s always easier to discuss issues with a human not a machine. Just make sure that they speak understandable English. No outsourcing to India please!
You think the writers go too far in the way they portray Becky? You obviously have never been on any Supernatural fan sites. I would say they nailed the (extreme) SPN fan girl to a T. I have no doubt that if some of these (a bunch of these) fan girls could give Jared or Jensen a potion to make them fall in love with them they’d be lined up around the block. A large portion of these fans are major drama queens - they cry themselves senseless over just about everything (by their own admission) and are consumed with feels every time Castiel appears. I love the show but (over on Tumblr anyway) there are definitely numerous “Beckys” out there. I’d say the writers know their fan base well.
Answer to #12. They probably bought the baseball uniforms when they were new and just kept them all those years. Maybe they liked the style when they came out, so they bought extras. They are old timey vampires after all right?
I’d cast Charlie as an Irish Setter. Maybe Lucifer as a black German Shepherd and Michael (Adam) as a white German Shepherd. I’m gonna go ahead and throw Zeke in as a Greyhound. Love the Corgi for sure. Can definitely see Crowley as a black pug.
I have to agree with a good electric toothbrush. The one they show looks really expensive but I’ve used Sonicare for around 15 years and there is no way a manual toothbrush comes close to cleaning that well. I have a water pik water “flosser” but I prefer regular dental floss. It’s easier and cheaper to take care of your teeth by using a much more efficient brush than spending a fortune at the dentist. You only have one set of (adult) teeth so I would say it’s well worth the investment. Same goes for your mattress. When you’re younger it’s not such a big deal, but as you get older (or if you have back problems) your mattress can make all the difference in the world. A bad mattress can really jack you up. That’s not worth it at all.
