If I were to ever go (genuinely) insane, I'd imagine it'd be like having this played in loop in my head for the rest of my life.  But it's a cute song.

Sad, but true.  Is anyone actually surprised?  

I guess it's all for the better.  The other inmates could contend that being in her presence could constitute "cruel and unusual punishment".

If done well, extremely helpful, but the education is hindered by people with agendas.  Teaching teens the possible (and likely) consequences of sex is highly important.

I think people are highly confused about what "sex education" entails.  I don't know how your sex education classes went, but as far as mine was, it's not a "how to make someone achieve orgasm" class.  They don't have a class on how to perform fellatio.  There's nothing in the curriculum to teach kids exactly how to have gay sex.  They don't assign kids to masturbate for homework or anything.  

What I was taught in sex ed, and what should be, is that pregnancy can result from sex, that those myths like "you can't get pregnant the first time" is a load, and that you can still get STDs even without intercourse.  This is stuff that kids need to know, so that they'll be less likely to rush into these things.

Added comment, 6/7:  I feel kinda bad calling her "man-ish".  I mean, to be fair, if you look up other pictures of Carrie-Anne Moss when she's not dressed as Trinity, it's a great deal more flattering.  I guess the slicked-back hair just isn't a good look for her, that's all.

(Original comment 6/5): 'kay, I'm not part of this list's "target audience", but I gotta say . . . I mean, I'm not saying that I'm great or anything, but doesn't she kinda look . . . "man-ish"? Sure, she can kick butt like nobody's business, but, uh . . .

A relatively benign single, "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" is mostly remembered for a good video and the singer's (Brad Roberts) deep voice. The Crash Test Dummies never made much a splash with anything else (besides a few minor chart appearances); however, VH1 considers this song as the 78th greatest one hit wonder. "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" charted in the States for 18 weeks in 1994 (#4).

I like bugs, enough to not want to kill them and pin them to pieces of paper.

It was very enlightening to find out that the creator of Wonder Woman, William Moulton Marston, was actually a major bondage enthusiast. It certainly explains why she carried a lasso and was getting tied up all the time.

She's cute and all, but quips like "you're a little short for a stormtrooper" would have to go. I'd prefer it if a woman was more sensitive to the plight of the vertically challenged man.

Seven of Nine was beautiful, intelligent, logical and always had that irrestistably aloof and unobtainable quality that made her all the more desirable. She was also very cute in the way she tried to understand the complex and often illogical nature of human relationships. I was always anticipating when she would let her luxuriant blonde tresses loose from her matronly bob and express her feelings more openly.

Yes, I know, I need to get out more.

I could definitely tell that the ninth incarnation of the doctor was intended to "bring the doctor into the 21st century". Christopher Eccleston's rough and ready northern doctor was certainly in dynamic contrast to the genteel southern doctors who had traditionally populated the series. This rendition of the doctor was, relatively speaking, the most bitter and merciless, taking a borderline psychopathic relish at the idea of killing every Dalek in existence. Of course, he was a nuanced anti-hero; a hardman with a heart of gold, ultimately demonstrating this by sacrificing himself to save Rose in the rather naff deus ex machina conclusion of the final episode.

The internal contradictions of the ninth doctor's character are most strongly evidenced in the episode where the doctor encounters the last human being in existence; effectively no more than a layer of skin kept artificially hydrated. He allows her to die under the the philosophical premise that "everything ends". A pretty contentious statement, particularly for someone who has ressurected himself eight times.

I must agree with LadyJesusFan on this one:  music doesn't necessarily distract from work.  In some situations (monotonous work), the use of a personal music player actually drowns out any distractions and can increase productivity.  I know I used to do it when I worked at a bank processing checks all day long.  It kept me awake.  

I can't do that where I work now, since I have to answer the phones, but we do listen to the "hold music" through the phone system, played at a low volume.  Which can be funny, since the music is compiled mostly from the practice owner's own music collection.  And some of it, though we love it, is arguably less than professional:

Stuff that probably shouldn't be on hold music (but was):

"Faint" - Linkin Park:  The thought of an older gentleman put on hold being screamed at with the words "I WON'T BE IGNORED" is very funny, but . . .

"45" - Shinedown:  Because contemplating suicide is probably not one of those things you want your clients to do while they're on hold.

"My Happy Ending" - Avril Lavigne:  No, it's not offensive, I just think she sucks.  Definately wins the "what-song-here-is-out-of-place" award.

Gregorian Monk Chanting:  Because nothing makes the time pass by like listening to 14 minutes of chanting.  No, we don't keep them on hold for very long, but after listening to 30 seconds of it, you might think you were anyway.

I will give it this:  it's definately one of the more interesting of the Staples "Easy Button" commericals that have come out (not nearly as cute as the Copy Cat, though), but even so it's a little flat.  Perhaps it's the office environment that makes for a bland setting that doesn't draw much interest.

Raising the "yeah, right, in your dreams" bar a couple more notches, Axe puts out yet another ridiculously improbable scenario which turns the table and portrays women as the uncontrollable hornballs.  It was mildly funny at first, but then it got old fast.

Mounds has to be the worst candybar on earth. The coconut in this candy taste awful!!

It taste like an incomplete snickers bar.

My favorite candy bar, good for the stomach and its name reminds me why I want a job so much.

It's hard not to rate this character somewhat high on the "evil SOB" scale when you take into account that he's a child rapist, torturer and murderer.  You can't even feel sorry for him when he's, ahem, "disarmed", twice.

- Rated by: kamylienne (76)
Even up to the sixth book so far, he doesn't make a very strong villian.  He's jut kind of a whiny spoiled little rich kid brat who makes fun of poor people.  I won't go into the actual storyline, but his role in the worst thing he's been involved in was still questionably small in comparison to the other antagonists involved.

- Rated by: kamylienne (76)
Lame villian (he pales in comparison to the Count Rugen.  I mean, he's the guy who actually build a machine that sucks out years of life, painfully, just out of scientific curiousity.  And, he after offering only a tenth of the price of a custom-made sword, Inigo's father refuses the deal and Rugen kills him), but entertaining.

- Rated by: kamylienne (76)
(Spoilers contained)  Definately an interesting antagonist, especially for being an alter ego.  Leads a revolution of young men who are unsatisfied with their lives in a series of bizarre stunts.  Collects fat from liposuction clinics and makes soap out of it to sell back to overly rich people.  The character is unpredictable and willing to put himself in danger, but when it comes down to it he's not murderous (he waits until people are out of the buildings he eventually ends up blowing up).

- Rated by: kamylienne (76)
Creepy and maniacal.  Psychologically unstable and unpredictable, which makes for a pretty good movie villain.  She kept a guy prisoner in her house just because she didn't like the ending he wrote for a book, and for good measure she broke his recently-healed legs again.

Though the Balrog played a very small role in the film, he was kinda cool.  He was a big, giant fire-demon with a flame whip.  But, despite that, with regards to being a villian he was a one-dimensional monster.

This chick was a nutjob.  Wielding a spiked ball on a chain and a whole lotta of eyeliner,  she's the bodyguard of O-Ren Ishii.  Led on a horny teenage boy and buried a knife in his gut for no apparent reason.  Clearly insane, but as she had such a small role in the movie and was only acting on orders, she gets a lower rating.

- Rated by: kamylienne (76)
Though he was the guy with serious dental problems whipping around swords to cut off people's heads, the real villian ( . . . if you haven't seen it and you still want to, stop here to avoid spoilers) was the stepmother/Lady Van Tassel.  This role was more of a puppet.
