I've seen the single true sign of the impending apocalypse.

This... evidence has me profoundly disturbed. Dare I say it, even frightened.

Has anyone else seen this show Cheaters? Seriously, that's screwed up. Yet incredibly captivating. They ambush people who they've recorded cheating on their suspicious others, and we get to watch the results.

What an age we live in.

On even less meaningful news, if your parents ever try and pull a "when I was your age, I didn't have a discman", just ask them to talk to Vicki's dad. Growing up in Hong Kong, they used petrified dog crap as road chalk. You might ask, surely that wouldn't work? Well, I don't know, and don't intend to test the theory, so I'm gonna let that stand.

I was at a friend's place one day in the summer, and "The Amazing Race" was playing, which we were watching with a mix of amusement and guilt. Something was bugging me, though, and it didn't take long to realize that it was the fact that here I was, voluntarily giving up my free time to watch couples bicker over money. I'm very happy that with the occasional exception due to The Daily Show, television is almost entirely absent from my life.

My Grandmother, by the by, is of the opinion that since we're living in a bread-and-circuses sort of situation anyway (she perhaps moreso since they moved to the 'States), we should just be done with it and bring back bloodsport; some people who need to channel their aggression get to do so, we get rid of them, and the rest get the bloody entertainment that perhaps we still secretly desire. A highly debatable point, but one which I find endlessly entertaining, given its source.
