Sketchy or Straightforward? CoverGirl Mascara Ad Uses Fake Lashes for 'True Volume'

May 31st 2011 12:04PM And most face wash commercials show women getting "fresh, young, clean" skin and they have on water proof foundation/mascara/make up. Come on. It's an ad. Everyone tries a few mascaras or reads reviews or asks friends until they find what they really like... this one ad is no different than the others so either change the industry and base your product on actual customer reviews or just accept it. They all do it so in my mind it's not false advertising because it looks the same as all the other ads.

Claire Danes Talks Plastic Surgery, Her Ever-Changing Hair Color and Long Lashes

Mar 18th 2011 4:49PM You're not too bright to be assuming things like that based on the fact that when she was "considerably heavier" (in 1994!) She was also then, what, 15?? I dunno about you, maybe you're blessed but I looked completely different at 15 than I do now at 25 and that's less time to change and grow... if her height/weight/appearance was really that similar from 15-30 then she'd be doing something very weird. She was never large by any means, she simply had a 15 year old's round face than she's likely slimmed down with a combo of age, height growth, and taking charge of her own body and diet (not being a child, but an adult) to become more defined.

Sheesh. People, spend less time deciding what you assume to be true and cut people a break.

Tipping Around the World: A Traveler's Guide

Jan 13th 2011 4:35PM You're a jerk.

I suppose you think people are looking for handouts, but not knowing if people are working a decent hourly amount or not you should consider that you likely (from the attitude in your post) treated them like cr@p while they served you in whatever manner for basically no money, and you're not going to pay them because they're beggers and you're selfish. They're not looking for EXTRA money and to con you... they're busting their butt to likely make less money than you do while working 3 times as hard and not just sitting on their tush all day at a desk.

Nice, buddy.

Tipping Around the World: A Traveler's Guide

Jan 13th 2011 4:27PM To anyone who's never worked in a industry where your income is majority tip-based you may not understand why I'd say this thinking "Americans are reading it, and they already know this" but this article should've STARTED with a quick 2 line break down of how to tip in 2011 in AMERICA. 1) It's a good base point of comparison when constantly saying "the standard" (although no one can live here off 10-15%, but that's another story) in the article itself and 2) A lot of people traveling here from other countries don't know because we're the ones that seem to have "different" standards than everywhere else and there are alot of people from different regions within America that tip totally differently... The most recent regularly written etiquette standards on tipping were written in the mid-ninties at best, early 2000s. :/

Blonde in Lingerie and Wheelchair Gets Extensive TSA Pat Down in Oklahoma

Dec 2nd 2010 4:09PM I wish you could read... yes I realize she's basically naked, but TSA didn't strip her or encourage her to take her clothes off. She thought it would be a way to make her point that obviously she'd set off a metal detector in a wheelchair but how could she be hiding ANYTHING with no clothes on. She took off her coat and by CHOICE had nothing but underwear on underneath. I get her point, but it's already been done and it didn't do her much good since she's got residue (even if from meds or a hunting trip) on her chair. She wanted to make her point (and let's be honest, get attention for being hot in undies at 52 after proudly posting in Playboy in the past) by wearing nothing... she was not "strip searched".

I think this whole system is ridiculous, but I wish people would read and not get all fired up about "strip searches" it's why TSA and government officials say we don't understand the policy. Apparently, people still don't.

Glitter Nail Polishes for Holiday Manicures

Nov 24th 2010 7:59AM "we aren't to bright" Well that's obvious. I grew up with jokes that offended everyone even of my own ethnic decent and gender, but man... you not only admit polish jokes may be true and you're not TOO (spelled it wrong) smart, but that just is the icing on the cake to the fact that you clearly can't read and either spam message boards with the word "polish" on it, or really are that stupid. Wow.

Fired UPS Employee Keeps Showing Up at His Old Job

What Happens if You Decline a Full Body Scan?

Nov 17th 2010 9:37AM I think too many people are getting carried away with "people can see the pictures"... that's really not the biggest issue. If you only fly once or twice a year, it may not affect you or be important, but how many people fly 2-3 times a month for business? You go to the dentist and get an zray or a scan and you're body is covered in a lead suit, but in order to fly everyone and every part is exposed to these same rays. There is a certain amount where it's not just "unhealthy" it's downright dangerous. I suppose if you want to avoid these everytime you go (or most times) you time it out ahead (adding onto the hour we've already added in the last few years) and you get pat down... and then yes, that's just invasive. It's not that they don't have reason to check there because of idiots that put bombs in their underwear, but regardless it feels very private and awkward and when you're tired, stressed, traveling, or god-forbid have other problems outside of having a strangers hand on your boobs and privates, it is a miserable feeling and it just isn't right. Yes, there are travel alternatives but there's a reason plane travel is so popular... nothing else is as efficient and fast. We don't all have the "choice" without losing our jobs... so to keeps our jobs and feed our family, we lose our sense of self. I don't complain about much, but a bad day when you just feel like everything's going wrong to have a stranger grabbing all over you just feels embarrassing and upsetting. Enough said.

'Undercover Boss' Todd Ricketts Plays Ball with the Chicago Cubs

Nov 8th 2010 4:17PM This show has never advertised to be a hidden camera show... they say there are 2 people participating in a reality show about going out to get a new job. They both follow the same current employee(s) and are taped (one is a stand in and the footage is never used, tyhe other is the boss). They ask personal questions and get friendly with each other because the current employee thinks they're going to contribute to deciding who will get the job along-side them (they're not gonna pick the guy or talk to him if he's a jerk). It makes people feel like they can open up more, plus the boss often has some casual (true, most likely scripted) questions that don't seem pushy but bring out big answers.

I'm not saying it's my favorite show or it's not slightly set up... it wouldn't be a consistantly laid out show if it wasn't mapped out, but learn the premise before you comment on things incorrectly.
