Learn or Lose

Some people really need to learn to either put their dogs on a leash or in a fence. If your dog is a big dog, and tends to go off wondering around the neighborhood and bark at people, then you really do need to do something that will keep it from doing that, otherwise someone will call the dog catcher and haul it off to the pound.

Just 5,000?

What the heck is the point in having in having a friends limit on Facebook? Myspace doesn't do it. Are they trying to prevent a page from getting to clogged from posts from friends? I think 5,000 friends can do that. Heck, 50 friends can that. It's true, you can create a fan group with an unlimited number of fans, but ...for some people the feeling isn't the same, plus sometimes they're just created and left alone.

Rock Music?

Apparently there are some people whom have no idea what "rock music" really is. Kenny G (a name I would never put in in the same sentence with either the words "rock" or "music") has, according to AOL music, has done a "rock song" Weezer (another name I would never put in in the same sentence with either the words "rock" or "music"). Does no one know what "rock music" is anymore, or for that matter, what "music" is anymore?

Hard Headed People

If there is one thing I have learned, it's that people are going to do what they want to do and thats it. You say say whatever you want to say to a person, you can advise them that what they are doing will in the end just break but in the end, they will do what they want.

Be Respectful, Or Shut up

Is it possible, just possible, to be opposed to something, and not attack people over the Internet, and not act like a complete jackass? I was reading an article about how Maine will end up allowing same gender marriage after the November election if the voters there approve it, but some of the comments that readers could post at the bottom of the page were some of the most ignorant and quite frankly, hate filled things I have read... for the past couple of days at least. And this is just one issue. Everything these days, regardless of what it is, seems to attract people whom seems to think they have every right to start bashing people with language that sounds similar to (or in fact is) hate speech. Maybe those people don't know that it is possible that you can not like something, and still be respectful, or, not say anything at all.

Booze is fine, but Cigarettes are not?

Anybody here who watches NASCAR knows that these drivers get the majority of their money from sponsors, and some of those drivers are sponsored by companies who's products are alcoholic drinks, something that causes about half of all the automobile fatalities in this country, yet there are no regulations on the sponsorship of such products for NASCAR, but try to put one little advertisement for a cigarette company on a car, and the federal government gets up in an uproar. I've never heard of one smoker ever causing a crash just because they smoked a couple of packs before they got in their car and drove off somewhere, yet I've heard plenty of stories where a person has drank a couple of beers, and had a car crash that killed someone. Now I'm not saying we should make it illegal for beer and whiskey companies to sponsor car races, but let cigarette companies sponsor some drivers too, and make these races look a tad bit less ironic.
