BOA to Charge Debit Card Fees

I canceled my Bank of America account years ago, but for those of you who still have one you might want to consider canceling it now.

BOA has recently announced that they will start charging a $5.00 debit card fee. This is most likely due to their poor management decisions around the housing bubble and debt associated with it. It is also most likely because they can charge it. They are a massive bank with a large customer base.

The Problem with Vegetarianism

Image Source
Here is the problem with being a vegetarian as is see it. It isn't the fact that you have a harder time finding meals at places, or that you pay the same price for a meal of vegetables as someone pays for a meal with meat. The problem is feeling like a complete tool when you order a vegetarian option.

I went down to the local sub shop for lunch today and because I spend so much time at bars eating bar food, I decided to order the vegetarian sub. And for some reason I couldn't help feeling like a complete ass as I ordered it. Like the, "Oh I'm so special that I don't eat meat," attitude that vegetarians have. And I think that's really where the problem sits. Most vegetarians are snobby assholes about it. Now don't start leaving comments that you aren't a snobby asshole vegetarian, I said most not all. But most actually are snobby tools that think they are better than everyone else and they look down on people who eat meat, as if they are better than the rest of us.

And that is why I felt like a tool ordering a vegetarian lunch. Because I don't want to be some snobby asshole who thinks he is better than everyone else because he doesn't eat meat. I already have plenty of other reasons to think I'm better than most people.

So in summary, most vegetarians are snobby assholes and meat still tastes good, even though I might occasionally order something that makes me feel like a tool when I do it.

The 4 Crazy Stages of Women

Image Source
After many years of field study, conversations with others, both male and female, I've come to a conclusion that all women are some sort of crazy.

Stage 1: Nuts
This unfortunately is the smallest percentage of women and if you can find a woman who is just nuts, marry her. She might get a little emotional sometimes, but everyone does that at points. And that's more or less all you will have to deal with. At this stage they are aware enough to admit that all women fall somewhere on the crazy scale. They get along with their parents, and might even be friends with an ex-boyfriend because "it didn't work out" but they wont hate him.

Stage 2: Crazy
This is where the majority of women fall. This are the ones who get emotional for no reason, get mad at you for being the same person you were when you met her. But, given a little time you might learn to deal with her. These are the women you hear guys talk about when they just admit to being wrong about something even though they weren't, just because it's not worth the effort to deal with her. They won't let things go, and bring up stuff from years ago when they get mad at you. At this stage they will start arguing with you when you call them crazy because they think they are not. And they most likely have issues with at least one of their parents.

Stage 3: Batshit Crazy
Women who are batshit crazy should be seeing a therapists and possibly medicated. They will flip out for no reason. They will make stuff up about you when talking to friends, they will assume you are cheating when you are not, and they definitely don't trust you even though you have done nothing. They certainly have issues with at least one of their parents, most likely the mother, and all of their ex-boyfriends were bad. These are the women who will tell you how they were molested, raped, or have some other kind of emotional trauma on the first date. These women might stalk or harass you after a breakup, so keep that in mind if getting involved with one. 

Stage 4: Completely Fucking Insane
These are the women who will freak out and jump out of your moving car for no reason other than that they have had to much to drink. Then tell the cops you pushed them. They will accuse you of abusing them, or emotionally traumatizing them in some way. At this stage they will for sure have issues with their parents, and most likely siblings as well. They will tell you how every single of their exes were horrible abusive people. And they most certainly should be medicated, seeing a therapists, and possible in an institution. They will tell you they love you and would die without you one day and threaten suicide if you leave them. Then the next day they will hate you and never want to see you again. They will break your things when they are mad, then start crying 5 minutes later because you are mad at them for it. You should not let these women know where you live, and if hooking up with one go back to her place. Because on the plus side, the more crazy they are the better in bed they end up being.

It's possible for women to fall in between stages, so for example they could be a stage 3.5 or 2.7. Or maybe when you first meet they are just crazy, but as the relationship goes on they turn out to be completely fucking insane. So keep an eye out as to not what stage they seem when you meet them, pay attention to what stage they might end up being as the relationship goes on and they can't control the crazy as well as they do when you first meet.

Crappiest Movie Sequel List

Over the years the movie studios, with little for original ideas, have take good and sometimes great movies that people love and want to see more of, and ruined them by making a crappy sequel. So, here is my list of top crappiest sequels of all time.

X-Men 3 Last Stand
The series started off great, the second one was almost as good, but the third movie really was crap. Hey, lets just kill everyone off and destroy some national landmarks, without any regard to a decent storyline. Luckily the franchise redeemed itself with X-Men First Class.

Superman Returns
Not necessarily a sequel but crappy enough worth mentioning. I know it is hard to live up to the iconic Christopher Reeves as Superman. The superman that we all know and love, so doing a movie with a new Superman is a difficult task. Add to that a boring plot and lame special effects, and we have a stinker.

The Matrix Revolutions
Another series that started out great and ended with a super crappy 3rd movie.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Kristal Skull
After Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade the trilogy was complete with what some say was the best movie in the series. Yet for some reason George Lucas and Steven Spielberg made a forth movie for the series. And within the first ten minutes we knew it was going to be a stinker, thanks to Indiana being thrown across the desert after an atomic blast in a refrigerator.

Star Wars Trilogy # 2
The first set of Star Wars were some of the best movies of all time, even with the Ewoks in The Return of The Jedi. But when George Lucas answered fans with a desire to see the prequels to those fantastic movies, he responded with three of the crappiest movies of all time.

Ocean's 12 and 13
I can't really decide which of these I dislike more. So I will just list them both and say they blow.

Batman and Robin
People like to blame George Cooney for this movie sucking. As if it's his fault the script sucked, the costumes sucked, and pretty much everything about the film sucked. Maybe people should considering giving some of that blame to director Joel Schumacher and the producers of the movie.

Note: I will continue to update this list as time and crappy sequels continue to happen. Or as people remind me of ones I missed.

Ground Zero 10 Years Later

We caught Bin Laden, we've invaded two countries, and spend trillions of dollars. Yet we can't seem to finish the construction of the new buildings.
