Smoking in England

This article is silly.
Besides the obvious comments ("You're in a BAR for Christ's sake! It's not like you're there to be healthy.") I had problems with this bit:

"England snuffed out smoking in bars, workplaces and public buildings on Sunday in what campaigners said was the biggest boost to public health since the creation of the National Health Service in 1948.

The legislation is designed to protect people from the effects of second-hand smoke at work, which doctors estimate kills more than 600 people a year."

(Emphasis mine)

The biggest boost since the creation of that agency only saves 600 people a year, maybe?

What douchebags.

OMFG. Guys and Dolls.

So Lady Head and I were flipping around after John From Cincinnatti and during the commercials during Ice Road Truckers and found the most disturbing, yet intriguing show ever.
It's called Love me, Love my Doll and it's really freaky. IT's on BBC America.
Basically it's about these men who have these $10K life-like dolls that they have relationships with instead of real women. They take them places, have sex with them, etc.

I really don't know how to describe it. I'd also advise not to be high when you watch it.

Hugh Jackman sucks as Wolverine.

Yep, super timely post here.
Screw you, anyways I was watching one of the X-Men movies the other day. Something about Jackman's Wolverine always bothered me. It's his running. First off, he runs like a sissy. Second, this is Wolverine who's all rage-filled and whatnot. He should be lunging at you out of control and crash right into you. Not stutter-stepping into you. In the second movie when he goes all raging at the SWAT team in the mansion there's a scene where he's charging some of the commandos. He's doing this pussified yell while running at them. He's running while standing straight up and down and he pulls up at the end before he slashes. Twatariffic!
In the 3rd movie he does something similar in the forest when that guy is throwing shit at him. At least here he slams into the guy but when he's running he's deflecting shit with his claws while doing his fast babysteps.
Get some friggin' wires on him or something.

Also, Wolverine shouldn't be attractive. Women should not be turned on by him with his shirt off.

Man, that was an incredibly geeky post. I'm going to kick my own ass now.

Hell's Kitchen

Good Lord, I am turning intosome kind of monster.
I remember bitching to people "What kind of douchebag watches that show? It's just some asshole yelling."
Well, I was in a rut since many of my shows - 24, The Shield, etc. are done for the year. So I was flipping around last week and figured that I could entertain myself yelling at what a stupid show it is.
Well, I like it. WTF is wrong with me?

I think it's like Sex and the City - I liked that show and still have no idea why.

Help me.

Important thoughts

1. For James Bond, I like Daniel Craig's build in Layer Cake better than his build in Casino Royale. He was a little too bulky for Bond.

2. Tonight we had steaks and baked potatoes. Lady Head and I were discussing out sour cream situation. We didn't have any. So she says "Well, we have plain yogurt."
That's fucking hilarious.

3. Looking at #1 about Daniel Craig's build, I'm wondering if that means I'm somewhat gay.

Heat Redux

OK, I know I already made a post on that part in Heat that pisses me off. But I watched it again recently and it still pisses me off - even more so if possible.

For those of you that haven't seen it stop reading.

Anyways, besides De Niro's and Pacino's mega-overacting the part where De Niro and his crew have broken into that warehouse-ey type building and are drilling the safe pisses me off to no end. Pacino (the cop) is sitting outside watching De Niro as lookout and they know the entire crew is inside robbing the place. Pacino's got ye olde SWAT team there and they are going to take down this group of violent master criminals. Of course one of the douchey, played-by-a-waiter-who-called-his-whole-family-to-talk-about-his-big-
break-even-though-it's-a-bit-part SWAT guys accidentally makes a noise in the SWAT van and spooks De Niro who calls the whole thing off. That's all fine. The part that enrages me is then the SWAT commander's all "Let's take them" and Pacino's all "Blah blah blah, we've got nothing, blah blah blah, just breaking and entering, blah blah blah, misdemeanor, blah blah blah, let them go."

Now, I'm no lawyer but here's half-a-dozen violent felons with long rap sheets of doing this crap and a bunch of drills and shit at 1am in a warehouse where they punched the lock. Hmmm, I wonder what you do need for them to get into trouble.

Gah! How the fuck did nobody have a problem with that scene when they were making the movie.

Nice job, Pacino's character. All your cop buddies would still be alive if you didn't fuck this up.

I also remember saying in the last, pretty much identical post, that Burt Reynolds' Heat was a better Heat than this Heat. I still stand by that.

Michael Mann sucks. I did like Thief however.

Damn you Burger King!

So I missed lunch yesterday due to work and, since Lady Head was going to a wine tasting, I was on my own for dinner. Lady Head hates Burger King (yeah, I know, how the hell did we end up married?) so it was a prime opportunity for me to reconnect with my old friend. I've been innundated with those midget constructuin worker commercials so the clear choice was the quad stacker. Four beef patties, four slices of cheese, bacon, and no veggies to be found. Perfection.

Or so I thought. Let me tell you something. If you eat something from BK called the quad stacker, when you're done you should feel like you're going to die. I finished the value meal and thought to myself - "I could probably eat another one of those). See, the commercials make you think that it's 4 whopper patties, but it turns out it's the lame regular burger patties. I mean, we're talking the same order of magnitude of those little ass McDonald's double cheesburgers, maybe a double quarterpounder with cheese.

Ash-hole - who called me a chomacheg for assuming that it had the whopper patties and still ordered it - had the brilliant idea of ordering a triple whopper and seeing if they could add another patty to it. ow that would be what the quad stacker should be.

Trip report to follow...
