What Makes Me Happy When I'm Sad and Sad When I'm Happy?

Funny, you never see shirtless men on television anymore (or, in any media). I can't remember the specifics but something about the psychology of men feeling bad/threatened about their bodies NOT buying products and turning away, whereas making women feel bad/threatened actually makes them buy.

Most depictions of men in media are devoid of handsome, masculine, muscled hunks for this reason. It's now slobs or metrosexuals (both non-threatening to the viewer)

Total tangent, but it just makes me mad.

Jeezus, this is worse than I remembered. Anybody could have jumped that thing. Tie a ham sandwich to that rope and it clears the shark. Sticking the landing is another matter, but who cares about that?

The best part of this scene is at 1:22, when Henry Winkler does a pretty damn good job of skiing ONTO the beach.

I have "This Too Shall Pass" tattooed on my left shoulder for exactly the reasons Lincoln described.

Talking about jumping the shark has itself jumped the shark.
