OK, not all millennials are like this but there are an awful lot of them that are. I worked for an engineering firm a few years back that was trying to hire a summer software intern but not a single candidate was willing to work a forty hour work week.
I got pulled into one of those click-bait slide shows this morning showing pictures of stars “like you’ve never seen them.” One of the pictures was of a Yvonne Craig who played Bat Girl in the 60’s television series Batman. She was quite lovely, curvy in all the right places and was wearing a bikini showing off her killer body. Being a guy, I was curious if she ever posed nude so I did a Google search. Somehow I ended up typing Yvonne De Carlo (Lily Munster from the Munster’s TV show) instead of Yvonne Craig while doing the search.
Who knew there was such a thing a Munster’s porn?
While somewhat disturbing, some of it was actually quite creative; featuring the various members of the Munster family involved in all sorts of sexual situations.
It always amazes me that no matter what you can think of, someone, somewhere will think that it’s a good candidate for a pornographic treatment. I guess it’s true when they say “it takes all kinds.”
The title, “Horrifying video shows California cop shooting man SEVEN TIMES outside a 7-Eleven after suspect grabbed the officer’s magazine” leads one to believe the cop had just purchased a copy of “Field and Stream’ from the local Seven Eleven. In reality, if you read the article, you learn it was a gun magazine that was grabbed. Huge difference.
I would think the editors would want a more accurate title, but I guess making it sensational gets them more hits.
That was the comment I attempted to post on the UK Daily Mail website but of course it was never published. I guess they can’t have any decent from the riff-raff and anyway, everyone knows you mustn’t let reality get in the way of a good story.
A boy mowing the lawn is about American as apple pie. For a great many of us it was the first job we had when we were growning up.
Earlier this week, we were treated to the story of Frank Giaccio, an eleven year old from Falls Church Virginia, who wrote President Trump saying that it would be his “honor to mow the White House lawn.”
The president took him up on his offer and Gaiccio did the job telling Fox News, “So far it’s pretty much the best day of my life.”
Nice story. Hard working, self starter, showing ambition and drive. A story that should make everyone happy.
Not so, Steven Greenhouse, former labor reporter for the New York Times.
Here’s what Mr. Greenhouse had to say, “Not sending a great signal on child labor, mimimum wage & occupational safety >> Trump White House lets a 10-year-old volunteer mow its lawn.”
Sounds like the rantings of yet another loony lefty with a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Here’s a comment I made yesterday on an article about racism:
I went to high school with a guy from the Philippines. He was one of the most popular guys in the school. He was involved in all sorts of school activities and everyone loved him. I only wished I could have been half as popular as he was. To hear him now, you would think that his life back then was a living hell. I’m sure there was the occasional jerk that made rude comments or did something discriminatory against him but I never witnessed it. Most people treated him just the same as they did anyone else, both good and bad.
There was a recent discussion on one of the local bulletin boards about changing the names of some streets in the area that were named after Confederate generals. At one point two different black women chimed in. One said she had lived in the area for thirty years and said in all that time she never felt discriminated against. A second black woman had just the opposite story; claiming that she and her family were constantly harassed.
Up until a year ago I did a lot of running. Occasionally, while I was running, some jerk would drive by and make a rude comment or give me the finger. The thought came to me at one point that if I were a woman, I’d probably feel like I was just sexually harassed. If I were black, I would feel it was a racist attack. As a middle aged white guy, I just took it as some low-life loser making a rude comment.
I’m sure some people are truly discriminated against, but I suspect that a lot what is assumed to be discrimination is just people viewing reality though their own filters.
I try not to eat doughnuts on weekdays, but since it’s Labor Day, and I have the day off, I decided to treat it like a weekend day and made a trip to my local Dunkin’ Donuts.
Today, I drove into the drive-thru and pulled up behind a woman, probably in her mid to late forties, placing her order. As is often the case, it was a large order and every item was customized. I’ve never understood why people with complex, special orders can’t just go into the store to place their orders instead of slowing down the line for the rest of us while their orders prepared. It’s just rude.
But the rudeness didn’t stop there.
After placing her order, she pulled up to the drive-thru window and while waiting for the order to be prepared, took a half full McDonald’s shake and proceeded to pour the gooey, disgusting, congealed mess out of the drivers side window and onto the pavement below.
What the hell is wrong with people. Granted, it will eventually wash away, but in the meantime every car going through the drive-thru will be splashing it on to their cars and tracking the sticky mess all over the pavement. On top of that, the workers at the drive-thru window will have to put up with the smell of souring dairy product as the day goes on.
How does a middle aged women go through life thinking the world is her personal garbage can?
Even if she doesn’t give a damn about dumping her crap outside for environmental reasons, is she not the least bit ashamed that people who view her actions will think of her as nothing but a slovenly, disgusting pig?
My guess is she doesn’t even have a clue she did something wrong. Her parents were probably pigs and I’m sure shes raising her children as pigs.
I know, I’m probably being a little harsh, but this sort of thing just drives me crazy.
Cause nothing says “I love you Mom” more than a movie about sadomasochistic sex.
This was in the Best Buy Sunday May 7, 2017 circular. I think someone in Best Buy’s marketing department needs a whipping.
