Things you just don't get - Page 414

post #6196 of 12401
Today is another traffic thing: women putting on make-up while driving. More precisely, the stupid bint leaning up, forward, and to the right to look into the rear view mirror while she pats something on her face and then gets upset when I honk at her as she's half in my lane due to paying attention to her fat, mottled face vs. driving.

You love hating on fat chicks, Pio.

Nobody can blame you really.

I do not hate all fat chics, really, I don't. It just seems they commit a disproportionate amount of the stupid shit I see.

Excerpt: So here's a rule: If an emotional display comes raw from inside you, you will most likely be punished for it; if there is an emotional display that you are rewarded for showing, most people who show it will be faking it.

Also: Years ago in one of my zines, I wrote that a "real" job means a job like other people have. It's the same with a real car, a real house, a real life: Real means imitation. And now "real" emotion has come to mean the emotional clichés that other people expect. Rob comments:

The ubiquity of film and television has probably made this worse in recent years, where actors have normalized our expectations as to how people would react in certain situations.

I pretty much agree with the general point being made, but those quotes (all I read) make the writer sound like the sort of smug, annoying douche who goes through life convinced that the only reason he got his ass kicked on the playground so often is that the other kids were threatened by his intelligence.

Just bought a macbook Air, and now for some reason I am feeling a vague sense that I shouldn't have spent that much money. I'm not really used to financial stability I guess.

Not if he punches her in the face afterwards.

Never considered it but in the same vein, why is the overweight daughter doing commercials? The message seems to be , "Eat this pink slime and you too can look like the before picture in a Weight Watchers ad". The ad people are charging hundreds of thousands of dollars and they can't see this?baldy[1].gif

Media creations like "pink slime" is something I do not get. The world is not a better place.

The company that produces it calls it lean finely textured beef or boneless lean beef trimmings. ABC is also getting its ass sued off over driving the company close to bankruptcy and it had to shut down most of its plants.

ABC may be getting sued, but it won't go much of anywhere- there's an incredibly high bar to suing a media organization for defamation in this country, not to mention that truth as an absolute defense thing. They're probably just hoping to get a settlement out of ABC, because if it goes to trial, ABC has no chance of losing.
