    Do you get angry, irritated, annoyed, frustrated, irked, frenzied or just plain infuriated with the stupidity spewed from the television and then start screamng like a crazy man at the television as if the miscreants can actually hear you?

    I scream obscenities at the weather forecasters, I call the actors in ads sluts, whores, sacks of shit. I rant at news briefs and the fake people that deliver them.

    Earlier I ranted against a dullard spewing the things he'd been instructed to say. He was a fake. The hair, the costume, even his fabricated midwest accent, all fake!



    I detest Meredith Viera and Alex Trebek even more.

    I hope you are never the test audience for one of my commercials.

    Well, there are sometimes (rarely) good reasons to get angry, but there's always a cost.
    I can't see any good reason to get angry at what's on TV.
    So no, I never get angry at the box.


    One of life's most important goals is to make our buttons less 'pushable,' imo.

    Hoss, this might help. The Squeeze and I keep a basket of plastic guns that we load with plastic suction darts. We never watch TV without loaded plastic pistols. When someone says or does something we dislike -- we shoot them.

    Hint: It helps if you lick the suction cup end before you shoot. They stick to the TV better.

    Between yelling into a vagina and licking the suction cup end before I shoot, I tell ya, I've learned a LOT about sexuality here at good ol' LPSG.

    I'm usually pretty calm..... unless there's a L.A. Kings hockey game on.... or a good UFC fight....
    Then, some of the most vile crap comes out of my mouth... gets pretty bad at times.
