I've decided to dedicate this entire blog post strictly to things that make me wonder. Lets begin.
I wonder why...
Bristol Palin beat out Brandy for a spot in the finals on DWTS last night? Want to see their faces when it happened? Here you go...
Can I just point out that the look on Bristol Palin's face is classic. She looks shocked and pissed that she didn't get kicked off. Personally, she should have been gone weeks ago, but Momma Palin's big support group kept her in the running, regardless of the fact that she had to endure 7 straight elimination rounds in a row. I personally think the competition is now fixed, and will no longer watch any more seasons. Ironic because, this is the first season I actually did watch.
I would also like to direct your attention to an article that also made me wonder something today... Why the hell would someone shoot a TV? Steven Cowan, a Wisconsin resident, got so mad that he actually took his shotgun and blew his TV straight to media hell. All because he was watching Bristol Palin's performance on Monday nights episode.
ISN'T THAT INSANE? I could see shooting it if like, she actually won, but she was only performing when he flew off the hinge. No I couldn't really shoot my TV. He even pointed the gun at his wife, who thankfully managed to escape the home unharmed:
"When Palin, the 20-year-old daughter of tea party favorite Sarah Palin, began her routine, Cowan jumped up and began swearing, saying something like "The (expletive) politics." His wife said he was upset that a political figure's daughter was dancing on TV even though he felt she didn't have talent. Janice Cowan told investigators her husband left the living room and reappeared 20 minutes later with his shotgun, "raging" with his face bright red, and blasted the TV. She said he then pointed the gun at her and told her to go fetch his pistols, and threatened to kill himself if she brought anyone back"
Somebody needs a time out.
Today, I wondered why it was necessary to have a new stricter pat down law implemented when it comes to traveling by plane. The law, put in place November 1, gives TSA officers the right to perform a more invasive pat down on travelers. With the full body scanners now in place and being used all over the country, I don't see the need to have more people pulled out of line to be patted down. Yes, the TSA officers use the "back of their hands" but that doesn't mean the "back of their hands" are not invasive to the privacy of your backside. Also, if it is bombs they are worried about, there is no reason for not using more bomb sniffing dogs at airports instead of having someone pat you down.
The pat downs only occur if you refuse to go through, or get "randomly selected" not to go through the body scanner and be patted down for "additional security." I also wonder after years of constant and frequent travel, if those who constantly are exposed to the radiation of the body scanners could experience side effects later on down the line. There is no way anyone who ran the testing of the scanners, experimented long enough on that question to answer it. So again, I wonder...
"The combination of scanners and more aggressive searches have prompted several high-profile incidents at airports. Some pilot unions and passenger groups have said they will urge people to boycott the scanners, forcing TSA officers to pat down thousands of additional travelers."
Most people dislike the scanners either way, pilots unions and passengers have started to react against the new TSA policies by declining to be scanned, however, they are simultaneously making more pat downs necessary and more TSA agents are having to put their hands where they shouldn't.
Ick! The article from USA Today that I linked to this post basically explains that these new policies are in place, and no matter what we think of them, they aren't going anywhere.
and in case YOU were wondering...
THERE IS ONLY 1 DAY LEFT UNTIL HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 1 IS IN THEATERS.
T-Minus 20 hours for all of you PotterHeads. I have tickets for a Sunday showing at my local IMAX theater. Lucky me, waiting an extra 2 days, oh well.
Anyways, moving on again.
I also wondered today... what a guy like Tony Parker would have to be thinking to dump Eva Longoria for his ex-teammates
fugly wife. Way to break up the double date, Tony. First of all, as an NBA fan, I'm disgusted that a player would really go after his teammate of 4 years, Brent Barry's (son of Rick Barry!) wife. Granted, the Barry's were in the midst of a divorce, but until he started creeping, Tony Parker wasn't.
Cheating to me is disgusting, but these high profile celebrities do it ALL the time and think they can keep it a secret. NOTHING stays secret if you are in the public eye. But a tip for you, Mr. Parker? Don't save hundreds of text messages in your phone proving you are having an affair. Delete that shit. In the words of Pauly D from Jersey Shore "you gotta prepare for that."
Okay this is the last thing I wondered about today...
|Rest in Peace MJ|
Black Eyed Peas member and music producer Will.I.Am recently spoke out against the music company, saying that he strongly disagrees with the choice to release the unfinished tracks in the vault at Sony because Michael was such a hands-on perfectionist when it comes to his music.
"to say that what [Michael] contributed during his life wasn’t enough. He just wasn’t any ordinary artist. He was a hands-on person. To me it’s disrespectful. There’s no honoring. Michael Jackson songs are finished when Michael says they’re finished."
Now, I may never say this again, because this dude did think he could become the president of Haiti pretty recently... but I agree with him.
On a happier note, the Boston Celtics are killing it this season so far.
To Health, Wealth and another NBA Championship Boys!
until next time..
Later Haters xO
