I wouldn't recognize them if I stood next to them in a supermarket check-out line or saw their faces on the covers of all the magazines!

Hey despite, apparently, being anti-semetic Mel Gibson is pretty boss. Apocalypto was awesome and I was really looking forward to his newest picture, but I guess that's not going to happen now It really is tragic he can't get his personal life in order.

Well, I've got to say that there's a different brand of stupid in the East. Everybody wants their kid to be a doctor or lawyer, everything's got to be just right...basically what I'm saying is that Eastern culture, in general, makes any kind of sheeple thing we could ever do in the West look like child's play.
You're an individual and a critical thinker in the West, and you'll be a bit of a social outcast and thought of as a bit odd. You do that same thing in the East? You're either going to be on the streets living in poverty or outright killed.

My girlfriend actually gets ANGRY when I try and discuss the world with her, yet she will happily bore me to tears talking about X Factor or how funny that man on Britain's Got Talent was.
When you step back from that, then there is something very wrong with this.
