Here’s a Novel Idea: Cooking Shows About Cooking

julie childRemember when the TV Food Network was nothing more than instructional cooking shows – cool kitchens/sets with cool personalities doing what you’d expect on a cooking channel…cooking!  Between the cooking game shows, the cooking reality shows, the cooking documentaries, the throw-downs, and all this “Unwrapped” crap, who learns anything about cooking anymore?  Drives me freakin’ crazy.  Maybe there should be a TV Food Network II, like ESPN II, that was devoted only to the traditional cooking show.

Dog Parks with Chickens…

squirrelIf  I had it may way, there would be fenced in dog parks where from time to time bunny rabbits, squirrels, chickens, and other miscellaneous varmits were let loose.  Most dogs need more to play with than just their owners and their dog brethern; if it were up to them, they would spend their days chasing live animals that are tasty to eat.  Now this kind of park is not for the dog that’s weak in the legs…no fluffy, poofy, yappy dogs.  Only dogs with hair on their chests.  How fun would it be to watch a bunch of dogs chasing chickens…plus you may get dinner out of it.

If I had it my way, Donut Shops would Deliver

donutsAt least on Saturday and Sunday mornings…how awesome would that wake-up call be?  You could preschedule it like at the hotels and they’ll arrive at your door with fresh donuts, hot coffee, and maybe they’d even pick up the paper on the way up.  This, I think, is a damn good idea.
I think Dunkin Donuts was trying it through Snap Foods for while, but that venture failed.  With a little “in your face marketing” there is no way this wouldn’t work…I just hate getting decent enough to head down to the local donut shop.

If I had it my way, I’d surprise drug test everyone on the California house/senate floor…

Just legalize it already...

Just legalize it already...

Does anyone know whether drug testing is mandatory for state senators or representatives?  I bet you all this debate around whether pot should be legalized would be an easier one if we ran a surprise drug test on the legislators who don’t have big enough cojones to actually support it.  If it’s true that 40% of Americans have tried Marijuana, would it follow that a similar % of state legislators have?  Probably not, but I bet it would be at least 20%.  I wonder how many would actually be found to have traces in their system today?  Let’s at least decriminalize marijuana and stop wasting resources on enforcement and corrections.

Sports are Antiquated

new sportsWe need a new sport.  Baseball, Football, Soccer, Basketball, Hockey were all invented hundreds of years ago (slight exaggeration in some cases).  Doesn’t matter, though.  With all the advancement in our socio/economic environment, you’d think we’d evolve in the realm of sports.  Sure, how we watch, play, and enjoy sports has evolved…but the sports themselves are all the same.  We need to get a group of 8 – 12 year old kids (who are really good at making up games with whatever is lying around the house) to sit down with a bunch of slightly inebriated college students – some of them “performance art majors” – and several corporate executives to figure this out.  Forget the Super Bowl , I can’t wait until The National Viking Ball Championship

Smokers have all the luck…

smoking area@seth3981 suggests through his Tweet that “if it were up to [him] smokers would be herded into communes in the woods. [We] could then live our own lives w/o their intrusion.”

Don’t you kind of feel like they already are.  I mean, I’m not really a smoker – OK after like 15 beers – but sometimes I feel so sorry for those guys huddled around the ash try in the corner of the parking lot.  They look so damn depressed – like they really hate the fact that they have to hang out by themselves…or maybe they just wish they didn’t have that nagging nicotene fit every half hour.  One thing is for sure, though; if it were up to me, smoking breaks would be unpaid…man, those 15 minutes really add up.  I feel like every time I go by the smoking area, the same people are out there.  Are they out there all day long?

Taze Me

What if everyone were allowed to taze one person a day for no apparant reason?
