Yes, I am aware that I missed a week. So this is going to be the news over the last 2 weeks.
This week in the news! Bill O’Reilly was on The View and pissed off the hosts… go figure there. Something downright disturbing about McDonald’s food. There’s controversy over the design of the “ground zero” community center. A teenager from a high school in Ohio has committed suicide, wouldn’t be news except it’s the 4th one from that school in less then 2 years. And Captain Jack Sparrow visits a classroom in response to a fan letter.
~Bill O’Reilly (henceforth known as Billy) was on The View and managed to piss off the hosts so much they walked off the stage! I am not going to respond to what any parties involved said on the show though. It’s Billy… what the fuck did you expect! The guy is an extremist! Just look at his shows: “ridiculous” as an insult (congrats there btw…), cutting his caller’s mic whenever he’s losing a debate, such blatant extremism that extremist groups don’t even want him. If that wasn’t enough he can’t even pay attention to the importance of his own material! A few years back when Bush was in office he talked about a convention saying it was too festive with the war going on and the horror of some tsunami. If it was too trivial to be having during those big things why the hell was he reporting on it then?! Done… not talking about Billy the Kid anymore.
~McDonald’s food doesn’t degrade. A woman bought a McBurger and a McFry and left them on a plate for 6 months. 6 months later the food is hard as a rock and now looks plasticy but that’s it. Not even mold will grow on it! Excuse me but EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! This is why I don’t eat at McClown. I cook, I cook rather well actually. If I cooked up a burger and left it on a plate for a WEEK outside of a fridge it would be molding. Last I heard it was illegal to use embalming fluid in food…
~Big controversy over the released design for the “ground zero” community center! Personally I think it looks very nice.
People are saying that the honeycomb design has hidden meanings and blah blah. Everything has a hidden meaning. If you try hard enough you can find a hidden meaning in ANYTHING! Get over it! My only complaint about the proposed design is that the floor and ceiling design pulls some funky optical illusions on my eyes.
~ You know, I only have 2 things to say on this one. 4th teenager in 2 years commits suicide from bullying at a single school.
1. The school is insanely lucky that the kids just decided to end their own life instead of getting a gun and going the revenge route. See Columbine, Virginia school shooting, or the guy that worked at a metal factory and made a fucking sword to see what happens sometimes when you push people to the breaking point.
2. Teach your kids to deal with bullies!!!!!!!! Here, since you are too stupid to do it I’ll do it for you. You kick the bully’s ass! It doesn’t even matter if you win, as long as you put up a fight they won’t mess with you anymore because they want easy marks. Yes you’re child will get suspended, but I can almost guarantee that the bully will quit fucking with them. Usually I am not a violent person but in some cases violence is a good educator. Some people the only thing they understand is pain. You can talk all you want but until you see if you’re hand and their head can exist in the same place at the same time they won’t leave you the fuck alone. I read once about a guy that kept getting picked on at school. The bully decided to pick on him when he was having a bad day once… no the bully didn’t end up dead. The guy picked up a desk and hurled it at the bully, needless to say no bully ever messed with him again!
School isn’t like work. At work you can report that you’re being harassed. If it continues you sue for hostile work environment. It’s considered a standard (although generally last resort) way of getting the problem fixed. At school that doesn’t work! The biggest threat a school can give is suspension and the bully just goes “I didn’t want to be here anyways, alright!”
~Top story! And thank the gods it’s a good one. Johnny Depp visited a British school as Captain Jack Sparrow in response to a fan letter he received from a student there.
This is why I like Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga. They appreciate and respect their fans! Far, far too many celebrities don’t want anything to do with their fans other then take their money. Depp was over there filming for Pirates 4, read the letter, and decided to go visit in costume and in character. That is something the girl will remember for the rest of her life. It makes me happy to see celebrities, who aren’t supposed to be role models but are often raised to that level, do something nice just because it would be nice.
This has been Gwen. Your pissed off, ranting redhead. And I’m going to go try that McBurger experiment.
