Is there something you want to tell us?

That whole 60 minutes was odd.

I would have to draw down on 60 minutes after about 5 minutes. Can't do that with plasmas.

I watched a portion of it. It was fucked up. Especially the part where they were selecting how the rat would be the rest of its life.

No, why?

Is was an interesting story because it supported multiple viewpoints. Not something 60 Minutes is famous for.

That one chick is hot...

Ok... the kid (WTF... he looked like he was about 8 years old at most) wearing nail polish and saying he wished he was born a girl?

I didn't catch the whole show. Was there a father in the picture because I can't imagine any guy letting his kid grow up thinking that.

The problem that (US) gay activists have is that they want ADA-style legal protections, but they can't come to terms with admitting that being gay would then be classified as having a-
birth defect.

Only if you have a Nielsen box hooked up to your TV.



What is "gender non-conformity" anyway?

Is it when men grow their hair long and pretty, and women wear pants? Because that shit has to stop right now!

I'd guess they would know from your cable box.

I don't believe that is how ratings are currently calculated. It is still based on Nielsen viewers, and extrapolated to all viewers from there.

Given cable, Tivo, etc - there are probably better ways becoming available to measure viewership, but I'm pretty sure it's still calculated based on Nielsen boxes these days.



I could be wrong, and I'm sure someone will correct me if I am.

I always just assumed they were collecting that info. like for the SOTU address when they know 42 million viewers watched ( I pulled that number from thin air) or is that just a poll estimate?

More like a "not being able to have children" birth defect, but yeah, something like that. Or being born a minority or woman, if you extend the analogy to the EEOA.

Come on guys, They are totaly normal and acceptable. Just like a pedophile who want's to put his dingaling in your 5 year old's butt. Just accept it or be labled a homophobe!

Wrong....Grandman,JW777 and Ol Painless have never said that homosexuality is acceptable. And I have never called them a homophobe, but call me a pedophile to my face and I'll be calling you a dentist.
