Quotes and Frustration

-"Robbing a police station is like dating OJ Simpson, it's just something you don't do." Unknown

-"Wars against nations are fought to change maps; wars against poverty are fought to map change." - Muhammad Ali

-"Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity." Unknown

-"Mmm, grahlic, gorlious grahlic." Moose, passing through thekitchen while dinner is being cooked.

-Here's an odd question: Why is sex such a hot button topic and people get all upset about sex ed in schools, but it's alright for Mike Rowe to basically "fist" a cow on national tv in a time slot that can be seen by kids?

-I really want to get back to the gym. But every time I start up again, something comes up or I get hurt, and I'm getting really discouraged. It's kind of like why should I try when I manage to get one day in and something goes wrong. And that's sad, because I like going to the gym and feel guilty about us paying for the membership and not going. It's very frustrating.

I totally understand on the gym thing! I have practically given up! If it isn't one thing, it's always another thing....*sigh*

I am with ya on the whole sex ed thing, too. Why is it okay then to show what they do on primetime television where our children can easily view it yet people freak out at what they teach them in schools. Somehow I think the schools pale in comparison to television.

The funny thing is, that was on the show "Dirty Jobs", and he was at a dairy farm!
Like you it bothers me that people spazz out over "Sex Ed", (in some places that amounts to "don't do it"-that's material for another post), but they allow their kids to watch the lascivious crap on tv without thinking twice or monitoring it.
