Next week the next cycle of 'Survivor' begins. I have to admit that I really enjoy getting into this show. There is nothing better than watching these goobers turn against each other and basically prove what I have always said about humans - that we ain't no damn good. The strong eat the weak and then use the remaining bones to fashion a knife to stab their 'allies' in the back.
If aliens could watch one show to illustrate who we are as a civilization I would suggest 'Survivor'. Where else can you see pretty girls using their charms to manipulate men for a handful of rice? Or males with egos so massive that they think that winning a rigged contest and surviving forty days under a tarp while pooping in the jungle makes them 'the man'.
For the THIRD time in recent memory, Russel is back to try to finally win this thing. I swear it's getting kinda pathetic to see them bring back all the familiar faces instead of looking for new people to annoy and delight us. I have seen Russel's 'brand' of gamesmanship and I am so over him.
Also, 'Boston Rob' is back. Wasn't he the same guy who had a panic attack in the jungle last cycle? He used to have the killer instinct but he has been tamed since getting himself a wife and baby. I need to see a lion - not a neutered house cat.
But let's all wait and see what it will be like. I am surprised I have seen no adds or information for this cycle except for the fact that the show is not happy because apparently Russel has been releasing spoiler information out to the Internet. Don't they have somewhere to seclude these people? Where the hell did he get a cellphone in the jungle? I refuse to spoil the experience for myself but good lawd, way to start this cycle with a non-story.
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.
