    Besides the actual ever increasing "regular" commercials, there's the constant AGT, the Shittens, the gay dude song-writer for Tan Mom and OctoMom, NSAL,.......what else have I missed?

    The Sham Wow is a more respectable brand than Howard Stern.

    Think back. His show has always been an infomercial, full of plugs and self promotion. We see now that he was a better salesman than entertainer, because he got a lot of us hooked, yet, when you listen to his old shows they really were lame and full of "shock" value and yes, self-promotion. He made it appear that The Beanstalk, Snapple, and his crappy pay for views and videos were a way of life, when in fact he was intentionally duping us on his way to fame and fortune. Now that he's there, he thumbs his nose at his fans, some of them loyal.

    I don't know how you guys do it, Ruffy. Even two days a week sounds like hell.

    Do you base it on Marks Friggin of board chatter? Or are you of those people who just needs constant background noise?

    I tried sticking with it until the end, but I just get angry. I now spend the morning hours trying to learn Spanish....because it's much easier than Chinese! :bigcry:
