Rat Busters NYC

I just heard about a new show that's going to be on Animal Planet, called Rat Busters NYC. Being a rat and animal lover, I am completely appalled by Animal Planet having a show like this where the rats are going to be killed and not even in a humane way.

What were they thinking?
Obviously they were not. It seems money talks though and they must think they can make some money from a show like this one or they wouldn't have it on a channel that is about animals. What does this say to the people who watch Animal Planet?

It says, Animal Planet doesn't really care about animals, they only care about their profit margins. What were they thinking adding to the ever growing animal control shows on an animal related channel like this. I realize that most people consider wild rats in places like NYC to be pests that need to be exterminated, but they are live animals who have as much right to life as anyone else.

I don't know about you but I am going to be contacting Animal Planet and telling them that as long as they have shows like this on, I will be boycotting their channel and telling everyone I know to do the same.

Confession Time...

I thought it would be fun to set up a facebook account for my husband. I was wrong...

His account has been set up for about 3 weeks and he's made maybe 3 comments so far.

He didn't like the picture I put on his profile so he took it down and now there's no picture. lol

So last night he says, "You wanna teach me how to navigate this fb thing?"

So I come over to the computer and he's all logged in and says, Ok, now what?"

So I get him over to the 'newsfeed' and this is our conversation....

Him: So now what do I do?
Me: You comment on your friends status messages.

Him: Ok, and then what?
Me: Look at their pictures, write a status of your own, click on your friends links, fill out your profile, select a profile picture for yourself.

Him: This sucks. this isn't fun. This is boring.
Me: Just read your friends status's and make some comments.

Him: Why do you write so many statuses? Your on my newsfeed more than anyone else.
Me: That's because you only have 10 friends and I write more than the rest of them do.

Him: *reading statuses* What am I supposed to say? Why is everyone 'liking' this it isn't funny.
Me: Just make a comment on some of the statuses.

Him: I made a comment. Are they online, how come they aren't liking my comment? Why are they responding?
Me: it's not like Instant messenger, you have to wait until they are online before they respond.

Him: well this sucks. this is boring. I'm logging off. *grumble grumble*
Me: Give it a chance.

Him: There's nothing to do on the computer.
Me: You're insane.

LOL So that's how it pretty much went, I will not be making him a twitter, LinkedIn, or any other account. He can go play Pogo and be quiet. lol
