The Top Ten Most Overrated Actors/Actresses of All Time

According to Ben Shapiro at Big Hollywood:

Here are my criteria: are they considered great actors/actresses? If not, they canít make the list (sorry, Rob Schneider). Are they actually great actors? If so, they canít make the list (sorry, Laurence Olivier). Only those who are considered great actors but are not, in fact, great actors can make this list. Even then, Iím not claiming that these are bad actors unless I explicitly say that I am.
I would quibble with some of his choices and think he's flat out wrong on at least one of them, but yeah many of these actors are overrated. See if you agree. And if you disagree, please, please forward all your hate mail and rudimentary pipe bombs on to Ben. Thank you.


The Wit And Wisdom of Milton Friedman

"The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit."
"When everybody owns something, nobody owns it, and nobody has a direct interest in maintaining or improving its condition. That is why buildings in the Soviet Union -- like public housing in the United States -- look decrepit within a year or two of their construction..."
"There is all the difference in the world, however, between two kinds of assistance through government that seem superficially similar: first, 90 percent of us agreeing to impose taxes on ourselves in order to help the bottom 10 percent, and second, 80 percent voting to impose taxes on the top 10 percent to help the bottom 10 percent -- William Graham Sumner's famous example of B and C decided what D shall do for A. The first may be wise or unwise, an effective or ineffective way to help the disadvantaged -- but it is consistent with belief in both equality of opportunity and liberty. The second seeks equality of outcome and is entirely antithetical to liberty."

Lost in Krappetown

But then another part goes bad, and another. Accepting that heís made an unfortunate choice, Mr. Cee buys a different American-made brand from another store.

Vacuum Two lasts a year. At this point, Mr. Cee is slowly coming to realize that todayís plastic vacuum cleaners have nothing in common with his grandmotherís indestructible Electrolux modelóa.k.a. ďthe tankĒówhich was made of a miracle substance called ďmetal.Ē

They don't make them like they used to - and may never again.

Red Letter Media on the Suckitude of the Star Wars Prequels
So I ended up rewatching the entire Plinkett Red Letter Media review of the Star Wars prequels and it was just as epic and entertaining as I recalled. I sure hope that it's now required viewing in film schools these days - especially at USC where Lucas himself graduated 40+ years ago.

Be sure and watch parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. Oh and on a related note genghis points out that the inventor of the pizza roll died last week.

Secret Passageways & Hidden Doors
I've always had a desire to have my own secret passageway/room. Maybe I'll eventually install one in the lighthouse.


The Vibrator-Alarm Clock?
Well if you can dream it, some factory in China will make it.

Itís an alarm clock! Itís a vibrator! Itís Both!

The device sits inside a ladyís panties with its tip resting on her privates. At the proper time of day, the Little Rooster will wake her up with increasing vibration intensities. It includes both a traditional snooze setting as well as a Snorgasm setting, which vibrates very gently for ďa ten-minute erotic slumber.Ē

Well one problem I see with the wake-me-up orgasm is that it pretty much guarantees the rest of the day will be a huge letdown.

Dinner Table Talk For Lesbians & Their Possible Sperm Donors

When youíre in a committed relationship, itís inevitable you will be asked by friends, among other people, if you plan on having children. When youíre in a committed lesbian relationship, itís inevitable youíll be offered your friendsí sperm.
Apparently we must run in different social circles because no one ever offers me sperm or *sniff* takes me up on my generous offers. And by the way ladies the offer still stands.
