That's what most people think anyway, and to be honest, thankfully.
Summer's coming, and so is most folks insecurity and going swimming, with the least amount of clothing on anyway. Most people know how to swim, they just don't want to put on the swimsuit.
7 put of 10 people are self-conscious about the way their body looks in the summer, especially in a bathing suit. Most people have trouble with the way their belly looks.
More than 70% of Americans would rather go to the dentist (really?) or do their taxes than go shopping for something to wear at the beach. And 75% of women have miss out on all the aquatic fun because they're not happy with their body.
If you ask me....I think it's less about weight and more about personal hygiene. Phew!!!!!
Probably. Do you care? That's up to you.
Unless you've been away or are totally disinterested, our government is apparently spying on almost every digital thing that passes through the optical fiber highways that affect our lives. Want to prevent it? Here are some tips from some of the most intelligent geeks out there:
--Stop using social networks...OMG are you kidding me? The government has direct access to Facebook, Microsoft and Google servers, so you should stop using them. I'll believe it when I see it.
--Surf using HTTPS...If you use Chrome of Firefox, you should install the add-on. HTTPS is an encrypted form of HTTP. It should help.
--Create an alternate identity...it's one of the best ways for the government to have a tough time tracking you--the use a proxy or VPN to hide your location. Very mysterious!
--Encrypt your phone calls, or use a "burner phone"...it'll probably work, but they still could use voice analysis to find out where you are.
Good Luck! Now...get lost.
Big movie weekend coming up! The new Superman movie is expected to pull in anywhere between $85-$100 million over the weekend. Plus, it will christen the new Imax movie complex at Destiny USA. A ticket to see the movie in Imax will cost you $17.50. $2.50 change so you can buy 1/4th of a box of popcorn!
You can hear a review of the new Superman movie this morning with me and our movie critic at 8:50am, or podcast on my blog.
Just read a fascinating article about the future of the movie industry with some dire predictions from two of the best in the business. Mega-directors George Lucas and Steven Spielberg say the movies are headed for a big implosion that will change the industry entirely--and the industry could do something about it but probably won't.
The movie industry, they say, is obsessed with the "blockbuster", which will drive out the truly "worthy" movies that deserve more attention such as "Lincoln" and "Red Tails" as examples. The problem is there's going to be a meltdown of 3 or 4 of these big budget movies, and when they crash, there will be a mass closing of movie theatres. Going to the movies will cost $50, $150, or $150, like the cost of Broadway tickets. Independent movies will avoid showings altogether, going right to "on-demand" services.
Pretty sad if that happens. Just keep blowing stuff up on the big screen. That may end it all!
