Superpowers, I Want One!

Wouldn’t life be so much better if you had superpowers?

I mean… come on, the ability to fly, shoot lasers from your eyes or run at the speed of light would be pretty epic. What if one day you had the ability to chose one super power that you could have for the rest of your life?

So, you wake up and check your mail for your daily bills, and you see this mysterious letter. This is no any ordinary letter, it is in a blue envelope and stamped with a yellow S-shaped logo. You look at it from all angles just to make sure it’s safe and finally get the courage to open this mysterious letter. Reading through the letter, you can’t believe what you have just read. It was from Superman himself; he has selected you to be his new sidekick. He said that you could have one (any) superpower of your choice. He also stated that he is flying over to your house tomorrow to pick you up!

What are the chances that both of them happen to use their laser beams at the same time. Gosh!

Here it is, the big decision. You thought to choose what to eat for breakfast was a tough decision but how about this one. One super power that you can have for the rest of your life. If it were me, I would have to sit down and think about this one.

Let’s start with flying; this one would be a favorite choice of many. It would be cool, but there are already other things that fly, like planes and birds. I fear that I would hit into a bird on my way to beat down some evil villain. Next, on my list would be laser beams, the kind that Cyclops from X-Men has. Laser beams are pretty awesome and would be useful if you would have to fight some evil villains. What if an evil villain had the non-breakable metal suit? Never thought of that did you, exactly. I don’t think that would be the best choice.

I think I have it. The greatest super power of all-time and it is waiting for it wait for it… invisibility! That has to be the winner, right? You could walk through walls, sneak behind villains and attack them or even sneak into the White House to see what the president does on a day-to-day basis. Invisibility would be my choice. You could even go to the supermarket, switch on the invisibility mode, take the candy bar you wanted and head on out. Invisibility would not only help against fighting villains, but it would also help you in many other ways as well.

When it comes down to it and the choice of any super power to choose for life, give me my invisibility!

No More Reality Television

You turn on the television to find something that is entertaining to watch. Flip to the first channel, and it doesn’t look like it is of any interest to you then on to the next one… the next one. Finally, you stop on this new reality television show that catches your eye.

If you start watching, then you will notice that this show is pretty much what you do on a daily basis. The only difference is that it usually involves celebrities or people claiming that they are normal just like you.

For some reason just because it is a celebrity, people can’t change the channel. They must continue watching to find out how these people live on a day-to-day basis and watch the “terrible” life they have rolling around in millions of dollars.

I think the biggest problem why people waste their time watching reality television is because it is “popular” and it is what everyone is watching.

You go to work or school and for some reason, everyone loves to gossip about reality television. I just don’t get it, people spend their time watching how other people live instead of worrying about their lives.

There are many different reality televisions shows from the Jersey Shore to show like Survivor and Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory. These are three entirely different shows, but they all have one thing in common. They are all trying to entertain the viewer and keep them interested so they can make sure the audience watches the next episode and keeps the money pouring in.

Do you think that Snookie and the other Jersey Shore members act like stuck up snobby Guidos off camera?

I am sure they still do to some degree, but they are actors. People don’t get it!

They still tune in to watch these shows and give up their time to watch how other people live or claim how they live. These are the same individuals who complain that they don’t understand how reality television stars make millions of dollars even though they still tune in every week.

I think that it is time for people to tune out from the television and tune in and worry about their lives (smh – shaking my head).

Top 5 – Shows of the 90’s Nickelodeon Edition

I am going to break down the top shows of the 90’s on Nickelodeon. Honestly, this might have been the hardest list to create . I grew up on these shows, so it’s so hard to choose and rank them. I’m sure everyone has their opinions on their favorites, but here are my top 5!

# 5 Rugrats

What more is there to say. Babies who can talk, get in and out of trouble and grow up right before our eyes. The best episodes of the Rugrats were when they were all babies before Dill Pickles came along. After they grew up and had the Rugrats All Grown Up season, that is when I turned out.

#4 Rocket Power

To this day, I still don’t know, “Who put the sand in the potato salad.” Inside Rocket Power joke right there. Otto, Twister, Reggie and the Squid make up the gang. I wish I had the life they do. They live near the beach, get free food because Otto and Reggie’s dad own the “Shake Shack” and just skate/surf all day. Have to say that the Squid is my favorite character, the poor guy is always trying to avoid danger, but still trying to fit in with the crew. Don’t forget Tito and his amazing Hawaiian flashbacks either.

#3 Doug

Doug Funny might be the greatest name ever. When you pair him with Patty Mayonnaise, a dog Porkchop and his best friend Skeeter, who is blue, you have an incredible show. Doug initially started off on Nickelodeon and also aired on Disney, but I’m counting it as a Nickelodeon show because that’s where I watched my daily Doug. Quailman was Doug’s alter ego who fought crime, and that guy would make me laugh every time, just on the outfit alone. Doug introduced us to the greatest band in cartoon history, The Beets. Their songs still run through my head from time to time.

#2 Kennan and Kel

Kennan and Kel is classic. This show is hilarious, one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. Kel and his love for orange soda are kind of weird, but pretty much sums up what the show. Kel is the trouble maker while Kennan is the sidekick, kind of like Batman to Robin. Kennan and Kel are just an amazing as a pair. That is why Good Burger, which is the movie starring both Kennan and Kel, is in my top five movies of all time.

#1 Hey Arnold!

Here is my #1 pick. Honestly, my favorite show of all time. I watch Hey Arnold even today. Arnold, Gerald, Stinky, Helga, Sid, Grandpa, Jolly Olly Man, Stoop Kid trust me the list goes on. Not only is it funny, but you still get that take home moral lesson at the end of the episode. My favorite episode has to be the snow one. Epic episode. Amazing show.

Honorable Mention

  • CatDog
  • SpongeBob SquarePants
  • Rocko’s Modern Life
