    Cheap Keyboards and Mice

    Been there and am doing the same. It is sad that they (manufactures) are turning us into a throw - a - way society. I would rather pay for 10 times more for something that would last 10 or better times longer but I think that will only happen in rare instances these days.

    So sick, so tired

    I never wrote that genetics makes a person fat. I wrote that genetics is responsible for a person's appearance.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetics_of_obesity

    Including thyroid problems.

    Some people will also have a lower metabolic rate than others.

    Granted that a sedentary lifestyle can be the cause of it and in the general American populace this is true.


    Another factor to consider would be mental health.

    It would be good to check your facts before making a semi-educated statement.

    Genetics don't make you fat, eating too much and doing too little makes you fat. *Genetics makes us individuals, makes us different. We are not equal. Person A might be able to handle a twinky a day, while doing very little exercise and maintaing his weight. *Person B is different then person A and doesn't have the same genetics. *I guess if person B thought they where entitled to a twinky a day (after all why not person A gets one) and then proceeded to eat one and not increase their exercise then I guess you could say it's genetics making person B fat. I'm not a big supporter of the entitlement mentality. **
    I saw a sign the other day saying "hunger is not an option", since when? I could see it saying "starving to death isn't an option", but now just being hungry means some one has to provide you with food. I grew up poor and hungry, motivation throughout my life. Now I can eat anything I want. Though if I did I'd be fat, so I don't. At least I'm neither poor nor hungry.
    Is it me or is*America the first country where obesity is a sign of poverty? How can Americans be fat and the rest of the world not. *Most Americans get their genetics from the rest of the world. If our genes made us fat then shouldn't the rest of the world be fat.***

    I can see a bit of truth in the laziness part; however, on appearance and what you said: No person makes the decision on how he or she looks. Genetics is responsible for a person's appearance.
    If you saw a person with a physical deformity, would you mock them?
    Are your weekends spent taunting hebephrenics?

    Yeah, owe me is growing. It definitely seems to be a certain sense of entitlement.

    I do not know if you have to be older to understand your blog but at 67 most of what you said I agree with. I see no way to turn around this 'owe me' movement.

    I agree with most of that. Maybe not to the degree you feel it, I guess I'm not that jaded yet. Getting there though...

    What really ticks me off is people who go 'Oh, I don't understand computers...' WTF? Just about everyone uses one every day of their lives and sometimes for some pretty important stuff too! Don't just revel in your ignorance. It's nothing to boast about. Make an effort to at least start to 'understand computers.' There might not always be a handy geek to bail you out all the time.
