    Any random thoughts, including questions are ok as long as they don't violate forum rules. :)

    I'll start.....

    I've been noticing something. Every so often when I pick up my prescriptions, I notice that different ones are either less or more potent. I know there is quality control, but I can feel a difference. I know it's either more or less than what it says. It seems to happen more with generics, but has happened once with brand name too.

    Why do the actors in movies speak so quietly and dramatically? No one talks like that in reality. Seriously, when do two adults wisper to each other when there isn't anyone within earshot in a two mile radius? I just seems unrealistic to me and stops me enjoying the film.

    Everytime I watch a modern movie I have to have the remote in hand to turn it up so I can hear important dialogue. Even with a good 5.1 system.

    It's so annoying. Maybe it's just me.

    How can foreign (English speaking) actors/singers with deep accents, speak or sing without any accent perfectly fine, but then I can't understand them during a live interview?

    Why do men think it's OK to urinate outside?:cuss: I can understand an emergency or if you are camping/hiking. Their little boys start school and think that's OK.

    EDIT
    We moms end up having to encourage nice manners. "Joey, You can't go pee on the playground":lol:

    I always go outside to piss unless we have company. No neighbors here and it's 2 gallons of water every time I flush the toilet. My well was down to 2 ft' of water last month. Just trying to do my part to conserve water. :D

    Edit: My wife gets angry when I piss in the sink/tub or don't flush the toilet.

    :rofl:

    No, it's not just you. Take "Ironman," for example. Movies like that have action scenes that seem as loud as an explosion, and the dialogue seems more quiet than a whisper.

    While we are on the subject, didn't they pass a law that the volume on commercials was supposed to be substantially decreased? I'm not seeing a difference yet.

    LINCOLN CITY, Ore. – People who got spinach on their sandwich or salad at a Subway restaurant in Lincoln City earlier this month may have unknowingly eaten food tainted by a dead rodent.

    But the state health department said it didn’t put anyone in danger of getting sick.

    “They [health inspectors] consulted with physicians and we followed their advice that, although it is not very appetizing, the risk of someone becoming sick due to eating lettuce with those particular circumstances were very low,” explained Cheryl Connell, Dir. Of Lincoln County Health and Human Services.

    Watch: Dead rodent found in Subway sandwich

    Subway can't catch a break especially after the Jerred Fogle nightmare, now this. This doesn't make me want to eat at Subway.:ugh: I thought about putting this under Weird News Stories but I wanted to stick it here.

    Any other thoughts. America has a short memory, maybe they will with this too. I don't know if I will be forgetting about this anytime soon.

    so mang things to hate... so many people to be offended by opinion and race and sex and creed and orientation....
    but the important shit always slips away... cause in reality... we humans only care about shit that we cant fix and shit that doesnt matter...

    whatever happened to fukushima?
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-...otage-japans-abandoned-nuclear-exclusion-zone

    nobody talks about it... hell I know people who still dont know about the biggest nuclear disaster since chernobyl... how the fuck can that be? shits still destroying the oceans and land and nobody in the USA gives a damn cause they are so wrapped up in guns and race and sex and money and everyone wants to scurry to the tip top of the moral ladder... what do you see up there? cause I see a bunch of self righteous assholes who dont actually give a shit about anything but thier own personal agenda.

    is it terrible I just like to sit back and watch the world burn?

    who cares who holds the high ground when its little more than ash?

    ironically a fat hemp crop could save us all from radiation.

    heres another random thought...

    why does Einstein have to be so on point?


    cell phones have made people lazy and stupid.... even worse... it makes parents into terrible parents. ignoring children for a phone call or whats on facebook.

    I hate when someone wants to read you this facebook post while their kid is just freaking out bawling for attention and moms like shhh im trying to have a conversation here... im like your kids trying to tell you she shit her pants and wants to be changed...

    "well what makes you think that?"

    idk maybe the fact she smells like she just activated the shit rocket to take off and I can smell the afterburners...

    but whats even worse are the self righteous asswipes who think man
    .. I really need to tell every parent to get off that phone and pay more attention.

    so im shopping and im looking at my phone and some pretentious bitch walks up and says to my 3 boys...

    "wheres mommy at? I bet she would be paying more attention to you in the store if MOMMY was here..." and im like ... im looking at my phone cause it has my grocery list on it lady...

    and by the way... mommy died three days ago. so thanks for that. we really appreciate your FUCKING understanding.

    disclaimer: mommy is not dead she was over yapping with some friend from work while I was shopping..

    stupid people never quite know when to just jog on.:doh:

    and thats my random thought for today.

    We were at a restaurant a while back and my daughter asked my wife to use the potty, my wife said "OK, let's go".

    She sat there waiting patiently for the people that were walking out to give her some room to get out of the booth when one lady standing in her way says " If you are going to make a promise, you really need to follow through with it"

    I asked her " what did you just say"? She just put her head down and kept walking.

    That's what I thought you said...

    I just watched Dr. Phil with the Jarrod Fogle tapes of him, talking about arranging dates with young kids ages 11 and 12 years of age, some kids as young as 8. He is one sick piece of sh&$. The guys in prison will have a good time with this low life. I doubt if he makes it out alive after serving his time.

    There's more to come tomorrow.

    Fukushima, the media is doing that Wizard of Oz thing, Don't pay attention to the little man behind the curtain,
    I mean no coverage, no update and there is no fix for this . WTF!
    On a lighter note, smart phones equals dumb people
    I don't remember anyone's phone number so if I lose my phone I'm fucked.

    And why don't people say 'goodbye' when ending a telephone conversation in films & T.V?

    So often when I'm watching something, I'll see people talking on the phone and when they finish what they're saying they just hang up. No "you take care, bye!". No pleasantries at all. It's more like dropping the fecking mic! I mean, who does that? It's so rude!

    I don't get it. And maybe this is just me.

    It's the little things :uhh:


    MuchLove!

    Fukushima is off the radar...
    That Asian airline that disappeared off radar has also been forgotten about!
    How the hell can something so big just disappear???
    Anyone else noticing big news stories just seem to vanish after a while as if they never happened...

    Seems like someone has their own Bermuda Triangle to dump unexplained events into...

    Those "news" stories are just like sports and American Idol, created to distract us.
