Just another thing to add to the list...

I haven't written in a while on netalive lately because I didn't really know what to say. Now I do.

I sat down on my couch this evening to do something I very rarely do which is watch television. We have all seen stupid television before, it is inevitable. Tonight; however, I saw the wrost of the worst...

Let me begin my story with reality television. We have all seen it, and how could we not. Im sure reality television takes up atleast 80% of our television air time, if not more. I remember when I watched the first reality TV show, Survivor. The concept was great, it was new, and interesting. Nothing of the sorts had ever been done on television before. It provoked interest.

Within the last little while though, reality TV shows have polluted the tube with their continuous overdramatic, simple, half retarded plot schemes, and even more retarded cast members, aka Jessica Simpson from the newly weds or Nicole Richie from the Simple Life. And what a simple life it definately is... Not to mention the extremely controversial "The Swan". Not only is it extremely controversial but I find it to be the most revolting, media-influenced, disgusting piece of garbage on television today. Fear Factor was a very close second....

I know Nicole, Paris, and Jessica were all raised by wealthy parents and grew up wanting and having all they have ever wanted. So I guess I cannot blame them individually for their horrendous outcome. But while watching the newly weds, Jessica said something to Nick (her husband) that didn't shock me, it just made me shake my head in disbelief: "Nick, did you know that your heart stops beating if you sneeze?" For a minute I was dumbfounded (which was exactly the way Nick's expression was). I couldn't believe that a 23, or however old she is, woman, would not realize that that is definately NOT TRUE? I also know for a fact that my 7 year old neice would of laughed her ass off after she heard that comment from Mrs. Simpson. It makes me wonder...."Jessica, do you ever watch yourself on a sunday afternoon and just want to kick yourself in the face? Because if you don't there is something seriously wrong. I mean, your a moron, can you not see that?? Probably not........." Same goes for Paris and Nicole. But the even more sad part about this is that I actually watched an episode of the newly weds...I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. However; it was exactly the way I knew it would be. Shallow. People are so interested in famous peoples lives its disgusting... They're just like you, except they have no talent, so they use sex appeal to cover the lack there of.

Moving back to the Swan. I have one thing to say. If you are that stupid to think that you will be healthy after such a severe operation in such a short time, you are seriously mistaken. Alot of you women have children, and Im sure you'd want to see them get married etc.... But do you think you'll live to see it since your so consumed with physical appearence that you'd do anything to look like the woman on the cover of Cosmo? News flash. They've all been airbrushed. No one on the cover of a mag is real anymore, even the men. Everyone has their flaws, we are all human for christ sakes! And if you are that worried about your physical appearence, get a gym pass, get healthy, and do it the old fashioned way.

Do you really think getting the fat sucked out of your ass is going to change the way you feel about you on the inside?

Of all the things that I have lost in my life, it's my mind that I miss the most.

You know, not seeing it may actually be one of the greatest advantages of being a moron. Think about it: the lower the IQ, the higher the fun!

Apart from that, well written! If only TV stations would listen to more people with your attitude. (Yeah right, keep dreamin'...)

Yes, maybe I do. I want to believe, haha, pun on Mulder.
But I'm not going to elaborate on that. The chance of coming in one of those changing series that go further and further is negative. So I'll just go on with my way accepting myself.
Why getting excited about tv? There's no reason.
Well... in my opinion psychologist should name this "illness" with a new name, like... hmm ...uglyphobia or something like that ;) Any more ideas for nice psychiatric names? Hands up!

I hate to put a damper on your excellent post, but I think there may be some truth to what she says.

I recall reading an article about sneezing (I think it was in Popular Science) which mentioned that, when you sneeze, all your other bodily functions temporarily halt, including your heart. Your heart doesn't really stop, it simply doesn't beat while the sneeze is occuring. Also, you can't sneeze with your eyes open, they close automatically each time.

If I find a related link, I'll provide it.
