Why Can't Women Cook Anymore?

Women's liberation, burning bras, equal pay for equal work, it was all supposed to make us equal. So, why is it that women can't cook anymore?

 Let me give you a couple of examples (not necessarily in order, or about the same person

Example 1:
Girl spends the night and decides to be nice by cooking breakfast. At first this sounds great, except she attempts to cook the hash browns in a pot used for boiling. The hash browns end up burning almost ruining the pot, and the house filled with smoke.  The hash browns came from a bag.

Example 2:
Girl lives next door to her parents. So instead of cooking for herself, she just walk over to her mother whenever she is hungry. Fully admits that she can't cook, and has no desire to learn how to cook. Not an issue until her mother passes away, or she moves to a location not next door.

Example 3:
Went out with  a girl and mentioned I liked open faced turkey sandwiches. So later on, to be nice she offers to cook me one. I gladly accept, not knowing she actually has no idea what one is. She shows up with some left over turkey and basically tries to make a regular turkey sandwich, just without putting the two halves together. 

Example 4:
This is more of an honest mistake, but funny enough to call it out here. A girl I was seeing, went to put a frozen pizza in the oven. A while later we go to check on it, and notice the smoke from underneath it, where she forgot to remove the cardboard from the underneath side of the wrapping.

Moving beyond the examples, in most relationships I'm in, I have a tendency to do most of the cooking. A good friend of mine, always does the cooking in his relationship. He is a good cook, so great, but still interesting to note that he does most of the cooking as do  I. now before I get a response from a bunch of angry women, this blog is about my experience and that I would say more than half the people in relationship I know, the men do most of the cooking. This doesn’t' mean, there are not plenty of women who also do cooking, and not that I am saying there is anything wrong with it,  but it is interesting to note the dynamic change over the years.  And it would be nice to get invited over for dinner and not have to pretend to like whatever the girl is cooking for me.

Chevy Volt, 12,000 Miles and 26 Gallons oif Gas

I'm not a fan of GM, or that much of a fan of the Chevy Volt. I do support the cause of electric vehicles over gas. So a story of a Chevy Volt owner driving 12,000 miles of 26 gallons of gas, it worth posting.

NRA Response to Gun Restrictions

Image Source
Contrary to most of my left-leaning beliefs, I am in favor of an individual's right to own a firearm. And, with the recent shootings, I believe that we should focus on mental health over gun restrictions. Now having said that, their is nothing wrong with restrictions. We have restrictions on speech, and other amendments to the constitution. So why not the second amendment?

The NRA came out today in response to the Connecticut shootings, making statements that we need "armed security" in every school and "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." And, I'm sure to remind every politician out there, how much control they have over the political process. I've always been neutral on the NRA, but after this, I'm am now anti-NRA. I'm still for gun ownership, but can't support such stupidity in statements. So, instead of funding art and math, already underfunded schools should be paying security guards? According to one estimate about $18 billion dollars a year.

 It's interesting to note, that the right-wing, who always spouts off about individual rights, seems to also be associated to parties that are trying to turn this country into a Orwellian police state: Warrantless wiretapping, holding people in prison without trial, torture, and a cop on every corner. If they want to live in that type of world, maybe they should move. There are a few counties in the middle east already like that, I'm sure they will be happier there.

For now, how about a little dialog about gun restrictions and mental health at the same time. And not making dumbshit statements like, more guns are good. Especially considering, per capita, we have more gun violence than other first world countries.

Guns don't kill people, the person pulling the trigger does. The gun just makes it a lot easier.

Fox News Anchor Caught…

I go to Yahoo.com today and the top trending item is, "fox news anchor caught". So, of course I click on it, thinking, fox news anchor caught… in men's room at truck stop with under age hooker, or dead on toilet after brain aneurism, or choked on meatball sub, or admitting that fox news isn't actually news, or in dance club toilet with ounce of coke, or in bed with cross screaming "let Jesus fuck you." The list could go on as we have so many likely possibilities. Unfortunately, the top trending item on yahoo today, has to do with an anchor dancing to a song during a commercial break. BFD!

Thanks Yahoo for tricking me into clicking on the link, and thanks American, for being retarded and caring for this kind of crap.
