Monday Mayhem

Join Us for Monday Mayhem

Welcome to Monday Mayhem. This week we will be playing 5 easy questions. For each of the 5 questions, give us your view. Have fun!

1. Lindsay Lohan was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail. What do you think her future has in store for her? An iota of a jail sentence (literally like... 1 day.. maybe. They're overcrowded. Which, in itself is a joke that people that DESERVE jail time are being released. I wonder how many illegals are in the jails getting heat/cold, food/water, medical/dental, television, recreation...while thousands of US children go without daily.... and which also prevents US criminals from serving THEIR FULL sentences. I don't think celebrities are above the law...but stuff like this is just ridiculous. WHO CARES?!

2. What is the biggest fashion "don't" that you would like to police? Anything Lady Gaga wears. She's a freakin joke/moron/idiot (choose your adjective).

3. How should we punish sites that lure us in with "read this" and take us somewhere where we are first greeted by a pop-up and then a series of click throughs to actually read the meat of the story? Personally, I don't believe there's anything you can do to "punish" them. Companies lose money daily because people don't watch the advertisements anymore like they used to have to because of TiVo and DVR. Therefore, they're compelled to seek out ways to force us to see these ads.

4. What is the most you will do to post a comment on a site? At what point is it not worth posting a comment? I won't register anywhere to post a comment on a site. If something makes me feel the need to communicate my thoughts/feelings, I will write a letter to them or look on their site's website for contacts in which to e-mail.

5. If you purchase something online and you are charged for postage, is it still reasonable to charge for "shipping and handling"? What exactly does "shipping and handling" entail? I think that's just another way to make money. If it's that big of a deal that they feel the need to add in more, they need to raise their prices. I hate and am sick to death of being nickeled and dimed to death.

Thanks for playing! Have a great week!
