I don't really own a TV. Well... okay, I own a TV, but I don't have access to any kind of actual "programming" so I use it for video games and DVDs. Instead, there is Hulu, and streaming video that keeps me in brain-candy and witty one-liners. That pretty much means infomercials are a no-go. 

Вопрос дня: Наркотики - это модно?

Существует ли мода на наркотики?

мода на наркотики мне кажется прошла в 90
сейчас всё больше пропаганда здорового способа жизни
мода умерла ,наркотики остались сами по себе ,кто хочет балуется
иногда заканчивается вот как у Эми и Бриттани

      Внешне, ничто не напоминает политику.  Но мы увидели, как обычное судебное разбирательство в неумелых руках превратилось в политический скандал. Почему?
    Да потому, что перед судом должны быть все равны - будь то простой рабочий или бывший руководитель страны.  А мы увидели, что страна еще не готова относиться одинаково строго  ко всем категориям людей.

Set-and-forget-it Rotisserie Chicken Machine!!!!!!! Used to be my favorite. We even had one at my grandparents. It really lived up to it's commercial. The best chicken I ever ate.

I am also partial to the Ronco knife commercial, the salad chop bowl thing, and the weird Foreman like dish thing that I can never remember. With the old lady and the Cookizza? COOKIE PIZZA. I would use the snot out of one of those.

We also owned the turbo cooker, glass watering globes, green bags, pedegg, and all sorts of other Made for TV things. The magic bullet is pretty cool too, but hey buy a mini food processor - close enough.

I could do without the genie bra, the Nu!Girdle, and even the NuWave Oven. I am as addicted to infomercials as I am Egyptian documentaries and How Its Made.

 A friend has influence over even the most secure person. If a friend insists on using
profanity, manipulation, or breaking the law the person witnessing the behavior may begin to accept that behavior from
their-self. Additionally, friendship can be a source of
profound pain, particularly when it is a casualty of a misunderstanding. When I
was a teenager my motivations were misinterpreted and the loss of two best friends was the price I paid. Although
they eventually forgave me, I could
never forgive myself. For many nights my
sleep was held captive by the guilt. They would have been happier if I had
never ventured into their lives. The third issue is whether male
and female relations can be purely platonic. I found it difficult to remain
divorced from romantic feelings when a
member of the opposite sex genuinely is cared about me. The persistent pressure
from peers, friend and family obstructed any clarity of my own feelings. Although him and I are
currently on speaking terms, my intimate emotions are barricaded from his
presence. My passion is displaced, and I am hollow assortment of facts, and
sarcasm. He can't even be my friend anymore because I don't allow the real
"me" to be around him anymore. . . . .

THE MAGIC BULLET.





I love this thing. I love this thing so hard that there aren't words for how much I love this thing. I love the characters and imagine they have their own little story there: Mick and Mimi the hosts, the blonde chick that I'm pretty sure is Mimi's sister and her husband, the middle-aged Midwestern Mom type, the bald party animal, and the Jewish mom with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. They all had this crazy party the night before and they're all getting up and are hungover and then Mick and Mimi cook the entire day's food (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and PARTY FOOD because these people never stop partying) in half an hour of infomercial glory.

It is amazingly retarded. The whole thing makes you just sort of stare with your mouth hanging open the first time you watch it, but then, you start to realize that you have stumbled upon pure genius and glory.

Incidentally, I now own not one but TWO Magic Bullets. I can tell you right now that they don't chop onions and garlic nearly as well as the infomercial suggests, but Kyle is more than pleased at their capability when it comes to making frozen drinks. I need to start using them myself and seeing what I can come up with. My guess?

Pure magic.

After graduation, Knight continued to pursue MBA degree from Stanford University, and Bowerman is inherited as a track coach at the university and the design of sports shoes.

Writer's Block: Just a perfect day

Describe the best day you’ve ever had. What made it so good?

Many days have been good. How does one ascribe "the best day ever" to just one? What makes them memorable? Contrast. Results. Benefits. Twice, in dramatic fashion, I almost died. Living through those circumstances made those days seem rather good. One day started with a lot of negative emotions, drudgery, strife, sickness, and pain. Becoming God's child changed all that. (I was born again at age 16, so I remember it well.) That turned out to be a very good day. Seven years later, again feeling negative emotions and condemnation, I changed my mind. *I* put in the work and effort needed to alter my thinking enough to believe what God's Word said, so just before midnight on November 2, 1981, I spoke in tongues. That, too, became a good day.

There are no days when everything is good, just like there are no days when everything is bad. Days that have been completely free of strife are so uneventful as to be utterly forgettable. I know I have spent days at the beach that were fun, days in the mountains that were fun, days with a loved one that were fun. If, however, I have forgotten the details, how could they be the best days? No, I remember best those times when mental, physical, or emotional pain ended. Those were the best days.

 Конечно модно. В наше неспокойное время вообще очень сильно поменялись ценности. Парень-подросток который в 14 лет не употребляет спиртные напитки считается чуть ли не идиотом. А 15ти летняя девушка у которой ещё не было секса вызывает только ухмылку и жалость. Конечно я не говорю что всегда так, но в большинстве своём наше поколение потерялось, запуталось в ценностях и уже не знает что хорошо а что плохо.

Truthfully, I really detest most late night infomercials, mainly because DH has to fall asleep with the TV on.  He turns it down quite low, so it's fine, but sometime after 2 or 3am, suddenly the infomercials start and they must record at a much higher volume.  I've been jarred out of my sleep by  them so often, and I sleep with ear plugs (DH snores).

When I'm working, I get up at 5:30am, and often to infomercials, frankly I am so over extenze and girls gone wild, they make me wanna pitch something at the TV.  

On the flip side, it was tie Shark infomercial that prompted me to research it online and eventually buying their steam mop, and for the record it is a pretty good product.

I saw this one informerical a few years ago and it made me think of something really odd.   It was for these ceramic knives that had some kind of diamod zirconium type casting into the blade and it cut through this piece of glass like it was butter, yet it could also cut a tomato very dainty like.    It made me think of a parody for that informercial.   The knife was strong enough to cut through someone's ribs, instantly killing them by lack of blood, yet gentle enough to chop the celery needed for tonight's beef stew.

Of course I admit that I've watched infomercials! While I don't watch much TV anymore, I've had insomnia for so long that infomercials were often the only thing on when I wasn't in the mood to watch The Weather Channel (yes, I am a huge dork!).

My favorite infomercials, however, aren't any of those cheesy late-night ones.

I've always had a soft spot for the St. Jude fundraising infomercials, where Marlo Thomas shares patient stories while asking for donations. They update them every year or so, and always includes stories of both successes and losses. They are interesting and heartwarming. While I've never made a direct donation to them, I have bought a few items where the profits go to St. Jude, in large part because I know (thanks to these infomercials) that they are going to an excellent cause.

When I saw this question I assumed that it was about commercials put out by the Government to give information that might be of vital importance to its citizens (some of which, the 80s AIDS ads, the various highway code ones, and the more recent 'have you remembered to make your tax return' are very memorable if not, like Lonely Water positively terrifying.

However, having done a quick Google, it appears that 'infomercials' are simply long commercials that impart no information whatsoever. And are sensibly corralled on UK TV onto channels that I skip past at speed.

So no.
