    I think a large part of the reason Manny isn't funny anymore is that his type of lines are expected now. Back in the first season, when he was this little kid coming out with all these lines that we'd expect from a middle aged man, the contrast between our expectations and the actuality created the humor. Now we expect him to say the things he does, so there's just not as much humor there.

    I know, I was just teasing.

    I'm 40 and very much wish I could have another.


    Also, as far birth contol-sometimes it fails. I have two very intelligent friends who decided not to have kids. Guess what happened a few months later?

    I am happy to hear this. One of my biggest fears is that all the intelligent people will stop having babies - or just have one - and we (the world, the usa, I don't know...this is not a rational fear) will soon be overrun with many not so smart people that continue to mate with each other. I can't have kids, but keep telling my intelligent friends - have babies, save the world!

    I don't know about this. Intelligent people have been screwing the world up just as much as dumb people since day 1. They're just better conversationalists.

    Intelligent people might screw up the world, but stupid people definitely will.

    Intelligent people screw up the world on purpose. Stupid people do it because they don't know any better.

    Some intelligent people make the world better. Few, if any, stupid people do.

    Why check when the show is just starting? why not wait till after the show and not expose yourself to possible spoilers?

    I don't get the whole "getglue" thing. I get checking in when you're out and about but what's the deal with checking in when you watch TV?
