I am starting to feel sorry for Ben. Sure he is a prig and the worst kind of condescending wanna be posh that I have seen in a long time, but he tries to get along with everyone and have them like him. Personally I think he tries TOO hard but that is what insecure people do.
One day Shabby (who just ripped him a new one) and everyone else hates him because he made an observation and the next day BB is having Shabby be all nice to him. She was given a task by the 'Tree of Temptation' (which is hardly a 'temptation' if you are ordered to do something upon threat of punishment - contestants should be able to tell the tree to 'sod off' if they don't like the deal he is giving them) to stick no more than touching distance between Ben for two hours and to give him at least twenty compliments. If she succeeded she would get a special treat of a diner between her and one other housemate.'
To offer her a dinner with Kiva, who Shabby has a girl crush on, made the task too good for Shabby to pass up despite hating Ben with every fiber of her being. She showed all of us what a convincing liar or actress she is.
Ben had no idea that this 180 degree turn would be waiting for him when he woke up. He thought he was going to be yelled at by Shabby all day. He soaked up her praise like biscuits and gravy.
What about poor Ben now? Here this hypocrite Shabby is lying to him and pretend complimenting him when all along she DESPISES Ben. He of course hates anyone mad at him and tries desperately for approval. After fighting with Shabby the night before he was very vulnerable and asshole Big Brother took full advantage of that.
When he learns the truth and he WILL learn the truth he is going to feel like a fool who was played. It hurt seeing him think that he had righted a wrong that he knew he caused. His self esteem was high enough to make crushing him sometime soon in the future a masterful manipulation on Big Brother's part.
Even in the outside patio, he can't avoid criticism for stating a simple truth that he didn't like chimps. He called them disgusting and he is right. Who wants an animal around that flings pooh and chews your face off? And personally I am not having a pet that needs to wear a diaper that I have to change.
Asshole Aussie, John James wasted no time is declaring that monkeys are better than babies because they don't talk and that was suppose the end the discussion there. He gave Ben shit for finding them hideous (oh, the poor Monkeys). Sunshine supported John James (what a shock!) by further arguing that monkeys are better than babies because they don't write on walls or wear your face paint. And if my grandmother had wheels she would be a wagon. What a pair of douchbags.
John James is an idiot crybaby bully who has to knock anyone down who he is talking to. He's not going home this week but he is going home sooner, rather than later.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
