    I think I could give you a pretty good synopsis my thoughts on multiple threads on Reality Shows-specifically survivor- by the Same Poster on the same day...

    It is as follws:

    And whats funny is that because of thread jackers I have not yet been able to have an intelligent discussion about the subject. The original thread has pretty much went to crap so I thought if I started a second thread and worded it a little bit different as to not offend anyone I and some others may actually get to discuss the subject. By creating this thread the ones who want to talk about how much they hate Survivor can do it here instead of on the new thread. Thank you for your support!

    I hate Survivor, but I'd rather talk about something else on this thread.....

    Who likes pizza? Anyone?

    I like Pizza... also... could we have the mods possible merge together the Survivor Threads into one... soon to be about pizza

    No need to merge. They have all pretty much died except this one.

    I like pizza. I was just saying yesterday that I could live on pizza.

    Don't you mean "I could SURVIVE on pizza"?

    I have to make my own pizza because I can't eat cheese (lactose intolerant) so I use soy cheese instead. It tastes much better than you'd think.

    If you were trying to survive on an island, what kind of pizza would you take with you?

    Dude, pizza is only enjoyed by people who don't have the cognitive capacity to enjoy real food. Besides, pizza is only tasty insofar as it is tasty within the synthetic parameters manufactured by the major pizzerias. Not to mention they're all the same... crust, sauce, cheese, the token gay sausage, the pepperoni that's only there because she gets drunk and sleeps around, the angry black olives... The main reason we have so much pizza in this world is because the food service industry would rather not pay the bloated salaries of real chefs.

    Uh.... ok....

    I just want some pizza. Frozen. From a box. No chefs.

    Personally I'd take mexican over pizza any day of the week. We got a new mexican place in town that absolutely rocks!!! Oh, and I'm hooked on The Apprentice but the others mostly blow.

    my wife used to work for Kraft at the plant where they made DiGiorno (sp?) and Tombstone pizza. We used to be able to get them for $1.00 each.... it was great.

    Why I hate reality shows:

    First, it's not reality. The fact it's a television show should point that out. Putting people in artificial situations and calling it "reality"? Please go away.

    Second, setting people up to act like complete and utter assholes for prize money is disgusting. It reinforces everything ugly about human nature. Greed, selfishness, pettiness, etc. And to use that for entertainment is as low as it gets in the entertainment business.

    Third, manufacturing celebrity annoys me to no end. One of the previous "survivors" (yeah, survive this!) was at the local county fair signing autographs a couple years ago and everyone was "Like, OMG!! She's, like, here. Like, OMG!!" Give me a break. Completely undeserving of this kind of attention. No talent other than being a complete bitch and whore. Let's all celebrate that!!

    Forth, reality shows are a substitute for creativity. Hollywood ran out of originality and creativity long ago. They are brain dead and produce this kind of garbage for those who are also brain dead. Talent and creativity are not important. Big tits and being a slut and a whore has replaced talent in Hollywood.

    In conclusion- Putting a million dollar carrot in front of people in an attempt to bring out ugly and despicable behavior for entertainment illustrates what kind of society we are. It exemplifies the exact opposite of what most of us want from society. Why not just have a show where we randomly track down people and see what depravity we can elicit from them for the right price? Let's see how many marriages we can break up. Let's see who's willing to betray their family. Let's see who would lie, cheat and steal for the right price. Why not? It's only entertainment. Where's the harm? Rewarding these lowlife attention whores that go on these shows with piles of money and celebrity is disgraceful. I can't wait until one of these people on a reality show gets pushed to far and violently lashes out. That's really what we're all waiting to see right? With huge dollar signs in their eyes, who is going to finally snap and give us the ultimate reality? I can't wait!!

    EDIT:Wow this took a different direction while I was typing. I like pizza too. :biggrin:
