Default Anyone else notice this?

Dumb people love the news.

Yeah I said it, and I'll say it again. I have this guy in my office right now who insists on watching the news at least 6 hours a day. 6 hours of Fox News every single day. Now this guy is good at his job, but he's as dumb as a brick. Just as an example, he had no clue what heresay was. But yet we still watch the news, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't help make him any smarter.

Now I'm not the brightest crayon in the box, but I can more than hold my own in an argument. And I watch sports almost all the time. I don't know. Maybe it's his way of trying to hide his incredible stupidity, but it's annoying and I'm about to snap on him about it soon.

Well, if you're at work, it's probably being blocked by your firewall. It's a picture from a blog site. I know when I'm at work and I log onto the forum during my lunch hour, a lot of pictures that people post here get blocked by my company's firewall, especially pictures linked here from blog sites and the like.

My dad's another dull tool in the shed who will only watch the news. Well, either news channels or Friends. That's it. He tells me that they don't have time to read at home. No time to read, yet they watch TV all the time. Last time I was home, there was a TV in every single room in the house. I watch TV, too (no news, though; I get my news from elsewhere), but a TV in every room in our house is too much.

Calling your own dad out for being dumb?

I've heard it all now.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I stopped watching "The News" years ago. The problem is that they don't really report the news anymore, it's more just like Entertainment Tonight where they talk about local events instead of Hollywood. Gawdawful!

I'm thinking it's more willful ignorance than idiocy. He doesn't get out much, and it shows. Phone conversations usually go like this:

Dad: "How's the weather?" [Quite possibly the biggest conversation killer ever]

Me: (Sunny/raining/whatever)

And then mostly dead air. Can't really talk to him about much of anything. But then, this is a guy who doesn't understand why the Steelers didn't draft Larry Johnson. *facepalm*
