BC versus AD – where does 2011 fit in?

Hey guys – long time no blog.  Har Har Har

I have a question for ya.  Im watching Wednesday night TV (aka Reba because I only get the tube between 8 and 9) and many of the commercials are about being “germ free” or “use clorox it gets rid of 99% of germs”.  And you know it got me thinking.  Back in the day (bible days) they didnt have clorox or germ killer or even hand sanitizer – and get this – they lived to be like 400 years old!  They didnt have refrigerators to keep their chicken fresh or humid temp sensitive drawers to keep our vegetables crisp.  If you think about it – they didnt even have running water.

Back then they had bacteria eating their skin . . hello scarlet fever!  Now we have cancer, heart disease, AIDS, STD’s, plastic being injected into our bodies to look younger!  WTF is going on with us!?!  How can we tell our children its ok to be who you are when everything around us is screaming CHANGE YOURSELF!  Its a scarey world we’re living in and its only gunna get worse if we dont change. 

With all these birds dying and the whole “end of the world” coming scenarios – it makes me wonder . . . . “what the hell are we doing???”  We have to be doing something wrong right?  We have all of this new “technology” all of this new “ways to live longer” but in truth it seems like we’re killing ourselves quicker. 

In the olden (urrg sorry spelling) days couples (gay or straight) stayed with each other “for good or worse” but now the media teaches our children that marriage doesnt matter.  And if you want to get married – hey write E or TLC so that maybe you can get a reality show.  And HELLO if your 16 get pregnant!  MTV will hit you up! 

What it comes down to is this – we are a truely fucked up generation. 

Damn now I need a drink

  1. I offer no consoling. I too agree the world is ending. Lets all get wasted and wait for 2012!

    • Already started 🙂 haha

    • Me too! Whatcha waiting for? As soon as the new year rolled in (still in the bowling alley) I was confronted with a (12) whose look turned to panic as she realized we were only a year away from 2012. I had to calm her down before leaving the joint because I didn’t want to cause a scene.

      • Oh man my 9 yr old said he heard people saying the world is going to end in May of THIS year! I gotta keep the news off my TV

  2. Oh who are we kidding? Modern day society has gone to hell in a handbasket (did I use that saying right?) Oh well. Media teaches us to be self conscious, insecure, friends rather than parents, hate our jobs, hardly work instead of working hard, party all the time, disrespect the ones we love, and respect the ones that can get us where we want to be. No wonder we are all screwed up.

    • EXACTLY!!! You hit the nail right on the head HAHA HEY I used a saying thingie ma jig NICE!
