    It's all pretty strange. I wonder what my kids' kids will think of TV from this era. "Oh god, it's not in 3D. What the hell IS that?"

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Also, it'd be awesome if you could give examples of political correctness to support your beliefs.

    Thank you.
    I don't really care. I'm going to say what I want to say anyway and I think other people should do the same thing and all this "but I'm tired of people telling me what to say" is just whining from people who let pressure get to them.

    In the end, the language I use is situational. I choose my words based on my audience, how I feel about them, what I want to communicate to them and whether or not I care if they accept what I say.

    For example, if I'm around my friends, I'll say "retard" as an insult. If I'm around someone whose business I care about, then I won't use it. Political correctness is really not something I ever think about or have a problem with because I've always felt like I'm free to say whatever.

    Tessa's not really his type, from what I understand.
