FOAD Thursday: My Blog Rants In Review
It has been quite a year and even before I came across the concept of Fuck Off And Die Thursdays. I loved the outlet of a blog to rant my frustrations. So with this being my blirthday week, I thought that I would revisit some of my past rants.
1. Pro-ana websites: Type in these words in any search and you come across some of the most horrific websites imaginable. These sites give anything from tips on how to remain anorexic, to what they call thinspiration which are usually pics of obese women or half-starved models and celebs such as Kate Moss or Nicole Ritchie. So for doing what is actually assisted suicide fuck off and die but on second thought just eat something damnit and cut that website crap out. I don't want to see you die. I just want you to learn how to live.
Four months into this blog, I posted a rather different post for me here. It concerned an old and dear friend who died from complications arising from this dreadful disease. I want to thank again all of those that commented on this post and helped me through that time.
2. Whiney-Assed Pro Athletes: The current age of fighting for the biggest contracts has taken a lot out of pro sports. Gone are the days where most athletes play hard for their team now they play for a photo op so that they can get a highlight on ESPN Sportscenter. Nothing screamed this more than the Peyton Manning story after their loss in the AFC Playoffs last year. Click here for my take on it then and my position has not changed. It is a team sport assholes. If you want to go for individual glory take up an individual sport such as golf or tennis or fuckin' tiddly winks otherwise shut the fuck up and take it like you own a damned set.
3. Political Correctness: This blog is my space. It is for me and for those friends that I have made here in the blogosphere and those that come and read quietly in the shadows. I will always do my best to be gracious to any guest that comes to this site but I will not change what I say or the pictures I post to avoid offending anyone. If the guest does not like it then the exit is only a short click away. They will not be the first to have done so and I can guarandamntee that they won't be the last. As I stated in this story, I learned long ago that no matter what you say or how nice you try to be there will always be someone offended by the truth. And if that isn't good enough then by all means send me a shitty little e-mail and I can tell the offended person to Fuck Off And Die right here.
Next weeks FOAD post will feature the winner of the Talk Shit contest. If you haven't entered, then what are you waiting for? It isn't often that you can brag that you won Jack Shit although guest posting on this blog is a little bit of a booby prize.
