Does anyone else literally argue with the people in commercials or tv shows or movies giving their 2 cents worth? Here's a few examples of stuff I currently encountered.

1. That commercial where Shaq is telling everyone that the insurance with the general is a legit company. I'm guessing some people somewhere have voiced their doubts that it is an actual insurance company.  My response is WHY are they questioning a guy and a cgi of a person (the general) promoting a certain insurance company and yet apparently no one has thought to question the validity of a talking lizard or a guy who's partner is a cgi ostrich.  I get that the insurance co. names are familiar, but really??  

2. There is a commercial about some bug stuff that kills cockroaches (YAY) anyway the tag line is cockroaches have evolution on their side, you have _____ on yours.  Well, if the miserable little bugs have evolution on their side then eventually they are going to develop an immunity to the product sold in the commercial which would make it useless and your pocketbook empty. 

3. Underwear that I guess soaks up a woman's monthly??  Now that sounds disgusting and gross!  What idiot thought this would be a good idea?  NO, NO, NO.  

4. Avengers movies-  Has anyone ever noticed that Thor has some issues?   Oh, I'm not worthy or I don't know if I am worthy? Really?  You are a god just because you get your butt kicked once in a while during a minor scuff now and again does not mean you're not still a bad a$$. Just grab your hammer do that really cool lightening thing and call it good. 

5. Cooking shows/ tournaments on tv. - apparently sanitation is optional.  Good Lord!  Too many here to get into. 

6. Tv guide info on the tv-  Many times I have looked at the info to see what the current episode is about and it will read something like;   When so and so and whosits become aware of the situation they        and that's it, that's all I get....  I'm like They?  They what?  what did they do? or not do?  And what situation?   I'm so confused, even if I have seen the movie or tv show and I actually know what happens, I'm still confused.

Reality shows (NO. I don't watch them, I think they are stupid) but I have seen an episode or 2 of a couple)  involving people
 hunting for treasure.  That Oak island one where they dug all the place trying to find gold or some treasure (no idea what they were trying to find) that I guess people have been looking for, for hundreds of years,  With as many holes that have been dug on that island someone has bound to have found it by now. I can just picture the entire island resembling swiss cheese.  And another one where some guy did a dive to find some lost coinage that no one had been able to locate for thousands of years and yet he dives down and 2 or 3 steps later he just happens to "find" a coin that leads him to believe he is in the right area. This is right after he tells the audience about ALL the people that have searched that exact area for the lost treasure of Somebody or other and never found anything. 

What are some of your random thoughts about commercials and stuff?

Umm, a dumb question: Why watch stuff that is irritating?

I cut the cord - TV, Cable, Satellite, Direct TV, Streaming services - did I miss any? - and I'm still in one piece and much more relaxed. The only service I support is Public Broadcasting (streaming) and catch a series every few months - commercial free at no extra charge. My wallet thanks me too.

Car commercials that portray the cars as wild animals or even worse the one where they are three wild teenagers doing their own thing and talking back to the parents.

Commercials that have fine print on the bottom that you couldn't read with a 100 inch tv even if they left it on the screen long enough to read.

Game shows where the contestants don't know how to play the game, especially Jeopardy where few people know how to bet in Final Jeopardy in order to get the best chance of winning.

And on and on. But I thank the inventor of VPN's that allow me to watch British tv from Canada.

I keep telling my wife that the people on tv can't hear her, but then I turn around and shout at them myself LOL

the underwear has an environmental goal. It’s made of organic cotton, that is with low use of water and pesticides. By using it you can avoid using plastics used in womans monthlys, or of course you can use the cup, thus using rubber.

@Daneborg   Not a dumb question.  and I do like the cooking tourney shows even with some issues. I also like the Avengers movies (at least the ones I've seen). Not all is irritating.  

@Jose   I kinda figured there was a reason for the under-panties, But they still sound really icky. 

@just4fun  that would be the Reese's commercial; which made me think of the one for Haribou Gold gummy bears where the adults have children's voices,  I finally looked up to see the commercial after hearing it for a few months and have regretted it since.  It's just creepy and disturbing; I can never un-see that.

Yep, it saves all of these disposable sanitary products ending up in landfill (or stops them blocking sewers up by women who insist on flushing them down the toilet). Given how many of these disposable products are currently used I think these alternatives are a great idea. The underwear may sound gross or icky Michelle, lol rofl,lol . But they are hygienic (well as hygienic as the person using them). They have layers that not only soak the period up, but lock it in, keeping it away from your skin. Just change them regularly and wash them properly. In fact they are less gross than using some of the standard non eco-friendly alternatives. I say a very clever person thought them up  Smile

@Downton Falls  ok, point taken, But at 54 years old I might be reasonably close to menopause (maybe) so before too long I won't even have to worry about those things.  Yay.

( I mean not worry about the objects in question not the environment)

One good thing about chemotherapy…it threw me into menopause and my period never returned! Although being nauseous and having hot flashes wasn’t much fun.
TV…my thoughts are more like…1. They actually PAY people to come up with these ideas, and 2. Do they really think that people are that stupid?  
If it has 4 wheels and goes FAST, you have my attention.

I find the peloton commercial where the guy goes they can't break you a bit entertaining; only because I imagine the conversation with me going more like this-  Step away from the Cheetos and put down the cinnamon roll!  YOU FAT!! pig They can't break you!  BUT I CAN!  GIT YO A$$ BACK ON THAT BIKE and PEDAL!  I can just hear that guy yelling at me.  

There's also a bike or something? that makes the entire room look like you're biking through a beautiful country side or whatever you choose. Knowing me I would be taking a nice leisurely ride and forget where I was at and get off the bike to enjoy the scenery and quite possibly pick some wildflowers. Or stop to smell the flowers.  LOL  Keenan told me, "I can see you doing that too."
