Stop televising Thespian Award shows

    I believe people who complain about these awards shows watch them without exception, even if it is just to look for something to be pissed about.  I promise that if you don't watch, it won't upset you in the least.  

     

    Same goes for the constant whiners about the media. 

    You choose what you consume, and holy fuck people ingest a lot of garbage these days.

    Hilariously exaggerated faux-outrage is all the rage these days.

    I think it is the twitter effect.  I don't follow people I find annoying, but then people post retweets, quotes, etc and you see the shit anyway. It's almost impossible to not see bullshit unless you don't use socia media at all.

    I definitely can agree with this. Whenever I get on Twitter, it's a race to see what I find first: one of the people with conservative beliefs posting some lame attempt at humor over something someone on the left said (politard humor: the least funny "humor" imaginable) or did OR one of the people with liberal beliefs retweeting post 1 of 24398730568 in Seth Abramson's latest meaningless tweet barrage.

    The worst thing about our current divisiveness is that everyone feels their voice should be heard...even if said "voice" is simply to parrot what someone else is saying. And it's impossible to avoid unless you give up on technology, move to the most isolated place imaginable and shut yourself away from everyone and everything.

    It's not as hard as you think.

    Don't follow garbage people on social media. Ditch cable.

    Done.

    And if he'd succeeded, no one would have snitched on him and he'd still be unabombing and the world would be a more lively place!

    Not sure, but he was a big proponent of the health benefits of cold showers
