Is-Hollywood-Releasing-Too-Many-Remakes-82292457980
You know the story. A cop gets in a terrible accident, undergoes a futuristic surgery and comes out as a war-machine equipped with lasers and high-tech anti-bad-guy software. It’s ‘Robocop’.. and it’s being remade, because apparently the first three weren’t good enough – or we are just too lazy to come up with new movie plots. (If you

Slow Walkers

In the land of the free and home of the brave, people have the right to make their own decisions. As long as they don’t harm those around them – it’s all good. However, isn’t the pursuit of happiness in there somewhere? Nothing makes an average speed, or quickly-moving walker more unhappy than being stuck behind a slow walker. A foot dragging, sight

Personalized Online Ads

Remember that item you almost bought on Amazon and then decided it was impractical, too expensive or just plain wasteful? Your ads remember. They remember so well, that now, when you want to visit your favorite game site during work – the ads remind you of what “you like.” “Hey [proxy user 4387465] look what we found you! Aren’t we

In this day and age, there are countless ways to connect with another person. Technology has run its course on human interaction and landed us at a strange impasse. We find ourselves in between the technology of the future, and the technology of yesterday’s future. The irritating mix of these two worlds has created a rift in the form of communication technology. One

Flopping is not “part of the game.” It’s the act of fooling an official into making an inaccurate call for the benefit of the actor’s team. Most athletics fans would call this by its more direct definition – cheating. Some sports are more susceptible to this disgusting practice…(cough) Soccer! (cough) Basketball! Yet, examples of

The Biebs Goes to Space

  That’s right. Justin Bieber is going into orbit.   Before everyone gets excited – he’s coming back. Unfortunately, we have not voted him off of Earth, nor are we preparing to send him to an uninhabited planted somewhere in a distant solar system… that would be awesome.   Instead, the Biebs is buying a whopping $250,000 ticket from

No-Scoop Poops

  There are many ways to disrespect another person’s property, but not many ways compare to the total disregard of leaving a dog turd on someone’s lawn.   Those that walk their dog generally carry a small bag… you know, for the poop. However, many dog walkers have convinced themselves that the waste will magically disappear, or just kind of work it’s way

Movie Talkers

Talking in cinema
  Summer blockbuster season is approaching! A season of exciting, high-budget action/thrillers is on its way to a theater near you. Popcorn, candy, soda, friends… oh, and this guy.   This is the guy that all moviegoers hate. He is the epitome of unrelenting selfishness. He is a movie-talker.   Warning: This clip from Scary Movie contains some adult

Kids on Leashes

    Recently, a practice has become popular that even some animal activists will agree is a bit harsh – child leashing.   Now before we really dive into this issue, let’s be clear. This debate is focused on healthy children without special circumstance. Those using this tool to handle medical conditions or cognitive impairments are why child harnesses

Unhandicapped Parking

    Everyone likes the wide open space that a “handicapped” bathroom stall provides. It’s comfortable. It’s private. It’s made for taking care of business.   In addition to its luxury spaciousness, the “handicapped” stall is the only stall with a changing table, enough room for a parent to accompany a small child who needs help and a large enough
