Survivor 13 - Cook Islands - Appalled but enthralled
« on: September 11, 2006, 02:41:47 PM »
Someone posted this opinion about Survivor on the web: "This is such an incredibly mean-spirited show. And I thought cock-fighting was cruel! If anyone doubted that the human race was on the decline - here's your proof!"

And now it's gotta new hot-button twist (all for f&*%$g ratings of course): Race. Not as in horse race or car race, but RACE as in black, white, brown, yellow - Sounds like satan himself came up with this $hit

So why am I going to watch it, when I've *never* before watched even 10 minutes of this show? I have not a clue. Something tells me I shouldn't. And I'm always yappin' to others about trusting their instincts.

Does it automatically make you a racist if you root for a specific tribe?
LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
RIDE!!!

I think he meant the bird, as in rooster, Matty ;)

The Cook Islands aren't that far from where the Brits tested their first H-bombs in the late 1950's. My dad was stationed there, on Christmas Island, which pretty much explains my genes and tendency to glow beyond the sunset!

sorry, can't help myself, the pedant within just has a couple of words to say on geography.

I could be wrong but I doubt it.

Christmas Island is an Australian Territory (unless of course you wish to immigrate here. another story) located in the Indian Ocean about 500 km south of Jakarta (Indonesia) and about 1500 km from Perth, Western Australia.

The Cook Islands are in the South Pacific, a couple of thousand km's east of Australia.

I'm not sure I understand the uproar about dividing the teams by ethnicity this season.  In the past...Survivor has divided teams by gender and age group...no one seemed to object to that.

Gary, those aren't instant hot buttons, whereas race usually is. I've decided I won't watch any of it. I think it's satans spawn and this Christian will have no part of it  >:(

My favorite Survivor will be when they divide them by religion and put them in NYC!  Muslims, Right Wing Christian Fundamentalists (Which alot of people call Republicans), Southern Baptists and Athiests. 

NOW THAT should be a hoot!  My money is on the Athiests, just sitting idly by while the others kill each other off.

Matty, you gonna apply with me?  I'll TOTALLY split the million with you if I win.

I can't wait for the new season to start... I've always watched it.

I don't care what color they are... I alwsy root for the cutest guy on the show... or the gay guy if there is one, minus Richard Hatch.
