Why is it that the drug companies feel that they should tell us what a drug’s side effects are in double time? So we do not know what bad things will happen and only focus on the “cure?” Are they just tring to bamboozle us? Common side effects may include dry mouth, headaches, nausea and anal leakage. Anal leakage? Seriously? May cause sharting…jus’ sayin’… Dry mouth is a side effect of a drug I used to frequently enjoy but we called it “cotton mouth”
Why is it that the drugs that work for headaches are not just added to the mix? “I’m not depressed anymore, but I have a splitting headache and I feel like puking…” I do not know, but it seems to me that I would then be depressed again, but for different reasons.
It seems like a waste of money and a large part of the gianormonous ill that is the debacle know as health care in the USA. The rampant over medication of our populace is driven by greed. Why is it we feel as a society it is okay to drug ourselves silly, with prescription meds at ridiculous profits to the drug merchants. And yet the side effect is sometimes worse than the problem.
Does every drug with that anal leakage side effect have Olestra as a component? They could just say that you may shart, so if your ailment is that bad, pick your poison. I would choose to live with the pain rather than wear a diaper, or walk around like I was wearing a dirty one. http://www.cspinet.org/olestraform
Why is it that the actors and actresses that are in these commercials are so unbelievable? They never look unhealthy. They never look like they need anything except one less trip to the gym. I do not ever want to ask my doctor for a ‘scrip for Viagra, but if I did I sure would not walk around the house or stand in front of the mirror rehearsing. And really what is so wrong about a 4 hour erection? I spent most of my teen years in that state and from what I remember, everything else worked pretty well then, too. How is that a problem?
Why is it that a game on television takes about 30 minutes more during the playoffs than the regular season game, because of commercials, but the commercials are just as bad? Thank god for the magic DVR. However, the Superbowl always seems to have a few really good ads. Did you notice that there were very few drug company commercials during the SuperBowl? Unless you count beer ads.
Why is it that we pay for cable or satellite TV, but we still have to endure commercials? And why do most non beer commercials leave me feeling like I lost intelligence points after I suffered thru the fifteen to thirty second spot? Does anyone ever review what they are saying? Or do they just say “Well, I guess that is the best we can do for the price, let’s just run with it.” Man, I gotta say if the guys putting these commercials together are the best and brightest, we have bigger issues than global climate change and terrorism. The dearth of intelligence from the supposedly educated is a VERY scary thing. Maybe they are just over medicated....jus' sayin'...
Damn straight those beer commercials are spot on. While they do not get me to switch beers, they sure do entertain and most times I remember the beer that they were pitching. They become iconic phrases of our pop culture. Waaassssuppp? And True, while not the best beer commercials ever, definitely got played in every day vernacular during their heyday. Any guy that says they did not yell Waaassssuppp? To one of his guys during those days is either lying or was in a coma. “Watchin’ the game, havin’ a Bud.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDTZCgsZGeA
Why is it that the best days seem to fly by, but the bad ones seem to feel like they run for 28 hours? I know that if we eliminate Monday’s we would then still have a Monday but it would be a Tuesday, so what is the point? Why is it that if you’re having a bad day that some one will always say to you, “Looks like someone is having a case of the Mondays”
Why is it that some people ask you ,”How’s it goin’?” and then immediately start to tell you how bad they have it? Just looking for the magic pill to cure the ill. Sometimes it is just venting. Hey, it's a bunch cheaper than buying a bunch of drug company spoilsmakers...That and listening is not YET getting taxed.
Why it that it takes what is twice an eternity to get to somewhere you want to go, but it takes no time to get home? It would seem to me that the distance is the same to go there as it is to come back. Unless Sheila is f-ing with me.
Why is it that the rich bad guys (you KNOW that they made THEIR millions on drugs both legal and illegal) in movies and TV always have a crystal looking decanter of whiskey? It is always in a decanter, so you never know if it is Rich and Rare or Crown Royal? Do you think they drink the good stuff when you’re not around? I would bet that they are offing the rot gut on you….jus sayin…
Why is it they ask if you want a drink, no matter what time of day it is? Do you think that it is a subliminational message? (I know that is not a word, but Norman, the spell checker has not had to work too hard in this blog.) I would bet that the stuff they are offering you would cause a headache, some nausea and quite possibly some anal leakage. Well, depending on how much you drank and all that.
Just another day in paradise
