How long are we going to continue falling for advertising hype? How long do we continue following the crowd like a sheep following the herd?

I think we need more Japanese influence on our TV.
Would be much better than the rubbish we see right now…
You just have to admire the resilience of these contestants on this gameshow. Even when all seems hopeless!

Firstly, watch this funny clip from The Daily Show:
So then… In a ‘debate’ between Islam vs. Christianity… It seems they only found agreement when they had a common enemy; “The Jew.”
Now all joking aside, this is not such a bad concept. History has proven it to work. Hitler was able to be defeated by the combined forces of the Allied powers coming in from the West, and the Red Army of the USSR defeating Hitler from the East. Two very opposing camps, Western Capitalism and Russian Communism, were able to work together to defeat a common foe.
Very soon afterwards, the co-operation broke down. A breakdown which culminated in the Cold War and the subsequent arms race between the two emergent Super Powers of this new world order. Had the threat remained indefinitly, would the co-operation have remained also?

A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand-new BMW drives up in a cloud of dust.
The driver, a young man in an Armani suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the shepherd: “If I tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?”
The shepherd looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answers: “Sure. Why not?”
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his AT&T cell phone, surfs to a NASA page on the internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite navigation system to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra high resolution photo.
The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany. Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored.
He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with hundreds of complex formulas. He uploads all of this data via an email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response. Finally, he prints out a full color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the shepherd and says: “You have exactly 1586 sheep.”
“That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my sheep.” says the shepherd.
He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then the shepherd says to the young man: “Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my sheep?”

So there has been many incidents in the news of GPS going crazy and giving directions that send drivers completely the wrong way or even stuck the wrong way into one-way roads… This council has even resorted to big signs to warn users of dangers ahead when following the GPS so blindly…
I didn’t think I will see directions as crazy as this though:
“Swim across the Atlantic Ocean”? LOL!
Ok in all fairness, this isnt the GPS software that came with the N95 originally. It is a free application that uses the online map services such as Google Maps and Yahoo Maps. Still.. “Swim across the Atlantic Ocean”? Wherever it may be getting its data from, someone, somewhere had to have been having a laugh with that one!
It gets even better!

Now I may watch Top Gear whenever I can manage it… but I really hate Jeremy Clarkson!
However.. I have to say that being able to test drive the best cars as and when they come out, like here, I am really jealous of the guy and wish I could be in his place most of the times I watch the show.
I mean get paid to drive cars and review them? What could be better than that? And just when I thought I couldnt be more jealous of the idiot.. what do I find?!!
