The first three items are solved by using non-DRM content. One click, play game (total 1 second after removing .bnk logo videos). One click, play .mkv file in Media Player Classic with Community Codec Pack (total 1 second to start playing). Downloading content makes channel surfing obsolete. What's on TV right now? Whatever you want to be one it.

Cars were faster in the 1970s, but they were ugly, noisy, polluting, and fuel inefficient. I'll take a nice fully electric sports car over a muscle car any day.

For credit card purchases, it doesn't even take me 5 seconds to swipe and enter my pin. For restaurants, you just sign just like in the 1980s.

As for music, for every Nirvana there was a Milli Vanilli. For every Queen, there was a Vanilla Ice. We remember the good music and forget the bad. Today's music is even better than the 1990s, which was better than the 1980s, which was better than the 1970s/1960s. Music gets better with time because the music industry figures out what people like. It's just that as people get older, they tend to no longer be open to new types of music.

Personally, I like quite a few of today's artists like Taylor Swift, Celtic Woman, Escala, Evanescence, Kelly Clarkson, Nina Gordon, Michael Bublé, Cold Play, Katty Perry, even Avril Lavigne has a nice voice. I still like a lot of the 1990s artists like Alanis Morissette, Jewel, Cranberries, Natalie Imbruglia, but I'm not going to limit myself to listening only to the music that came out when I was in my teens or early twenties.

There will always been crap coming out, but there always will be good music coming out as well. The trick is to not get into the worldview that the only good music is what you grew up with.

Can you re-post that feisty one at the ballpark with the two other guys again? I am too lazy to pull up that other thread. TIA!

OK, I'm glad Barry Manilow wasn't on your list.....

OK, there's one Barry Manilow song I like (well, two if you count Copa Cabanna)

I've liked that song ever since Angeles sang it on Angel.

I don't buy that. 1 in 4 men are not wife beaters. 1 in 4 of your sons do not grow up to be wife beaters. That is a ridiculous percentage.

Don't tell me that a couple with two sons should expect that there is a 50% chance that one of their sons is going to be a wife beater.

Dan, calm down, this is the Funny picture thread... don't take the pics so seriously....

I am calm. I'm calmly pointing out an obviously incorrect statistic.

And you would be correct. I am guessing that the popup ad is covering additional text something along the lines of, "Boyfriends or Dates."

Here is a quote from the study:
"Intimate partner violence is pervasive in U.S. society. Nearly 25 percent of surveyed women and 7.6 percent of surveyed men said they were raped and/or physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, or date at some time in their lifetime;"

That's those crazy Asians under the Liberal French and English utopian enchantment. They have to villainize the mean old Man unit if they are ever going to stamp out sex inequality, and the best way to do that is by waging an agenda campaign of negative reinforcement and propaganda.

It almost sounds like something but I can't put my finger on it.

You know, if you substitute the bathroom hand dryers for the blow dryers in the pic, that is pretty much what I think happened.
