What’s Bugging Me?

March 2012

So, the title of this post is what’s bugging me, but I’m interested in what’s bugging you too…  Here’s a short list of mine to start:

1.  Supplements that cram 500 pounds of [insert fruit or vegetable or plant here] into a pill.  A human being can’t possibly eat 426 bushels of tomatoes so cramming all of the beta carotene or whatever the hell it is that’s good in a tomato, just seems ludicrous to me.  There’s another one out there that claims to cram the good stuff from 500 saw palmetto pills into one of its own pills.  Really?  500!!!?  I’d be willing to bet the original pill crammed the good stuff from 200 quarts, or so ,of saw palmetto fruit into one of their pills…  So you’re looking at somewhere around 100,000 quarts of saw palmetto fruit…  In one pill?  Gimme a freaking break.  If a human can’t possibly eat it naturally, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that you probably don’t need it in a stinking pill.

2.  Geraldo Rivera.  If ever there were a media whore, he’s it.  I hate the time change, I always feel like I need a shower after watching five minutes of his show.

3.  Female Sideline Announcers.  I get it, in an attempt to draw more women to watch men’s sports (football, hockey etc.) they’ve gotta throw a few female announcers in there.  I get it, but I am utterly exasperated with having to sit through the soap opera side of sports.  Suzy Kolber doesn’t count here because she actually understands the sport she’s commenting on and can speak intelligently about said sport without resorting to the mushy theatrics.  Nice work Suzy.

4.  Ditto the soap opera stories involved in endurance sports.  Lance Armstrong’s story aside, because he’s the one who overcame cancer – not his cousin’s, wife’s, neighbor’s brother.  Could you imagine trying train through your cousin’s, wife’s, neighbor’s brother’s illness?  It’s so hard!  Illnesses suck and training is hard.  I know, but life happens to all of us.

5.  That stupid contraption that will clamp your phone to your head.  I can’t wait to start seeing people walking through the grocery store with their cell phone clamped to their melon – that’s gonna be awesome!  Cripes.

6.  Young people who drag their feet on their way into a store – at about a 50 minute per mile pace.  Old folks obviously get a pass here, it’s awesome they’re out in the first place.  Oh, and pajamas in public!

I feel much better now.

I’ll be traveling for work today so please load up the comments section, I’ll need a laugh.

    Uh oh, somebody has a case of the Mondays… But truly – one big vitamin pill can not breakdown fast enough for your body to absorbe the nutrients. Chances are one large multi-vitamin is just “passed” on through. I prefer USANA Health Pak. Have fun travelling.
