I have seen two things this morning that just makes me wonder what in the world is going on. The first was an ad for an anti-perspirant that is for people with low-testosterone. OK, seems a little odd but the wonder came from the disclaimer information at the bottom of the screen that said it is possibly an addictive medication. Are they expecting people to put on deodorant all day multiple times a day? Is it like steroids? While looking at the fine print of the commercial I noticed a blurb crawling across the bottom saying that free-style snowmobiling has been canceled in the X-Games. I don't watch the sport, but I've seen it on televisions in sports restaurants. It seems that the safety of the competitors is in question. Really? Who would ever think it is possible to safely take a snowmobile and do a loop-the-loop? It's not a matter of putting on a helmet or a seatbelt. These guys take a machine with every safety feature and protective panel as a motorcycle, launch it into the air upside down, with no hands, or any other method of grandstanding and showboating, and some sanctioning agency is looking to make it safe? What's next, will they be trying to figure out how to safely play Marco Polo with an alligator in a tank of piranhas?
Next thing you're going to tell me is that someone wants government to be effective.
