Dateline Makes Me Think About Stuff

While watching Dateline, a thought crosses my mind - Exactly how many true crime shows do you need to see to know that when planning to murder someone, do not, I repeat DO NOT, conduct internet searches such as "pull off the perfect murder", "how to kill someone and get away with it", and "poisons undetectable in autopsy" on YOUR OWN COMPUTER. Dumbass. You deserve to be tonight's story.

Another thought that came to me while I watched this particular episode, on this particular night, a night that the entire state was whimpering over a few thunderstorms coming through. Of course the local weather guys immediately interrupt the show to give us 'live action video of the storm' which to us at home looks like black screen. Fascinating! They "interrupt this program for breaking weather news" approximately 60 seconds after a commercial break. So for those of us who realize that most of the time people actually survive thunderstorms, we're thinking "you couldn't have interrupted the damn commercials?" Ah, yet another example of how everything would be better if I was running shit.

One last thing, if I'm murdered in some fantastic way, I wonder which snapshots of me will they show every 34 seconds during my episode? Let's hope it's not these. That would be embarrassing. On the other hand, do you think my blog stats would blow up? Hmmm.....

I am always shocked at the stupidity of these people too! The best show to display how stupid murderers can be is "Snapped"; have you ever seen it? Its hilarious really ~ its all about woman who murder their husbands/boyfriends and they are all so stupid! They really gives our gender a bad name!

I've visit your site more often...maybe. Well I would just to make your stats go up. I know that would make you happy!
I'd go to the library and log on with different accounts, just for you!

I saw that episode the other night and thought the same thing. How freakin' stupid are these people? Or maybe they do it because they think they'll never be caught?
I think your dorky pictures aren't that bad actually.

OMG, when did you install the video camera in my house so you could listen to me saying the EXACT things to my hubby!
I also think that people are so STUPID when they do the searches on their own computers... I mean, come on people, really???
I HATE when the weather people come on during a show, right after a commercial, esp. a really DUMB commercial.
I have actually TOLD Bill which pictures to use if something happened to me so that they don't use some dorky photo.
I thought I was the only one who was that nuts... it's good to have a friend like you! :-)
