It turns out that not all creatures need to be saved. The Mucinex species is a prime example. You would think the graphic image of a family of boogers being sneezed and coughed out of a human host would be a great advertising campaign wouldn't you? Somehow I doubt I'll be reaching for mucinex for my decongestant needs.

Another thing. What's with the anti smoking commercials?! I am THIS CLOSE to taking up smoking and buying cigarettes for kids just to show them that their tactics are ineffective and unappreciated. I don't want to see brains cut in half and gunk squeezed out of who knows what. People blowing smoke in my face is far less offensive!

Olympic Games

There are some great things about the Olympics. It's fun to see sports other than Basketball and Football. I like seeing different countries compete and for the most part get along. I also like seeing different countries compete and sometimes cause a bit of controversy. It's also cool that the United States tends to clean up as far as the medal count is concerned. One great thing about being in a country where I know we'll end up with a ton of medals is that I can be happy for competitors from other countries when they win.

On the other hand, there are some things I really hate about the Olympics. I don't like how the difference between a gold medal and no medal can be a tenth of a second in a race or a tenth of a point in a subjectively judged competition. I guess it's ok because the same people seem to consistently win by that hundredth of a second, so it must be a measure of who is the better athlete, but come on, we need high tech timing devices to be able to tell who won! Oh, and this isn't a big deal, but I don't like the medals this year. Too wavy.

I know what it's like to be second place when first place is so close. It's called Doodle. I was almost the world champion of this online game. I would play it for hours and almost perfected the sport, but I could never beat some guy in Greece. His name was cyprusisgreek and he will haunt my dreams until my dying day.

Avoid Him!!!!

This is the Noid. Avoid the Noid! Man, I really miss this guy. I feel like it was irresponsible of society to avoid him into extinction. Does not our great power to impact the environment require us to take care to conserve the species we displace? Do we not contend to be more than animals following the law of survival of the fittest? While quite possibly the fittest, is living without the beauty and diversity of nature really surviving?

The Noid is gone forever and younger generations have never seen a living 7up Spot.

They are gone, but it's not too late for some of their friends. With your help, we can save these beautiful creatures.
