Yeah, I am a little depressed over Avatar.  Not the same way those folks are, though.

I am depressed that folks I know actually called it a good movie.

After the huge ad campaign about chocolate milk being secretly good for you, schools ban chocolate milk as bad for you.  Net result, milk consumption drops 50%.  When they try to figure out why, they basically come down to white milk tastes yucky.

Not very good Dairy State attitude, is it?  ::)

It's the chocolate part, methinks..  And with whole milk being as obviously unhealthy as it is, chocolate milk is a nail in those poor children's early coffin.


Seriously though, today's society want to sterilize and isolate kids from any minor risk they may suffer from a number of things.  I blame the litigious nature our society trends towards.

I can understand trying to reduce things like injuries and accidents, but part of life is falling down and bruising our knees.  Part of life is getting hurt and knowing how to get past it.

And yet look at all the harmful things and ideas children have access to nowadays that weren't a problem a couple of decades ago, most of them mental and psychological.  Things children ought not to have to deal with, perhaps even some things forced upon them, despite parent's wishes against it.

I'm not looking forward to grade school years with my kids.

So, a couple days ago, I arrive at work and clock in. Almost immediately, one of my managers grabs me and tells me to follow a specific person to make sure that person doesn't just walk out the door and steal a cart of groceries.

So I follow. And I wait. And I watch. And said suspicious person walks out the door without paying, and it greeted by the security officer asking if she paid or not.

It's not the fact that it's the proverbial little old lady walking out of the front door with a cart of groceries that gets me. It's not the fact that she decided to go to a different door when she saw that a police officer was standing near the door she normally uses. It's not only the fact that she's done it (at least) three weeks in a row, minimum.

It's the fact that she asked me for help that gets me. She couldn't lift a 12 pack of pop because they'd been stocked sideways, so she asked me for help and walked out the door 5 minutes later.

I'm amazed at how brazen that little old lady was. And I'm going to check to see if she tries it again next week.

It's always been a running joke about how long it takes to get Packer season tickets.  There was even an ad once that joked about the fact that if you put a newborn on the list for them, by the time they were 35, they'd still be waiting.  But really now...

955 years?  Time to stop adding names to the list I think.  ::)

Oh, don't worry about being lumped in with the cliche banjo pluckers from Deliverance. We know you'd run them off with a shotgun if they showed up.

I'm glad they found the bunker of TNT before the fire did. That would have been an unwelcome surprise. Then again, I get the feeling that "backyard" for you is a lot more than it is for me.

I'm just sourly surprised it wasn't looted as soon as it was found.  :(

I could have had lots of fun with 339 stix for TNT........... at-least they could have invited me to the explosions. :P

So, the new Yahoo! mail had it's great unavoidable unveiling today.

It's old yahoo. Only shinier.

WTF Yahoo?! Give me something new or update something instead of just putting a shiny new skin and a few drop down menus that change nothing!

At least it's not any worse than it was. (It's mediocre, reliable and usable either way.)

EDIT: Also, the default setting is an ugly shade of green. Which is a bit petty of me to complain about, because it took me less than a minute to figure out how to change it.

My thoughts on the video are: How stupid can George Lucas be? And how greedy is that plaid wearing guy?
