Let’s say, “That’s so gay”

Ok, so you have probably seen the PSA about not saying “That’s gay” or “that’s so gay”. They are right on about how we should stop using it in such a negative way and that it only builds more negative feelings.

Let me present a quick thought to you.

If you Google define:gay you get

  • cheery: bright and pleasant; promoting a feeling of cheer; “a cheery hello”; “a gay sunny room”; “a sunny smile”
  • full of or showing high-spirited merriment; “when hearts were young and gay”; “a poet could not but be gay, in such a jocund company”- Wordsworth; “the jolly crowd at the reunion”; “jolly old Saint Nick”; “a jovial old gentleman”; “have a merry Christmas“; “peals of merry laughter”; “a mirthful …
  • given to social pleasures often including dissipation; “led a gay Bohemian life”; “a gay old rogue with an eye for the ladies”
  • brave: brightly colored and showy; “girls decked out in brave new dresses”; “brave banners flying”; “`braw’ is a Scottish word”; “a dress a bit too gay for her years”; “birds with gay plumage”
  • offering fun and gaiety; “a festive (or festal) occasion”; “gay and exciting night life”; “a merry evening”
  • wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

Now I ask you, is that a bad definition? No it is not. Instead of trying to ignore the word, and yet still have it be negative lets take the word back. Let’s go back to the original definition and make it a good word again.

Let’s say things are “so gay” and let’s do it with a smile, and realize that it is not a bad thing!

Some times you need a sense of humor, Tibet is important but lighten up!

Should life always be serious? Hell no. It needs to be fun some times too. That was my take on the Groupon ad in the Superbowl. I know what is happening in Tibet is serious. It has been serious for a really really long time. Do I know how long. NO. Does it matter? NO. What matters is it sucks and it’s not right and we should want it to change. Remember the 90s? The Beastie Boys made sure we all knew how wrong it was. So we all get it.

That being said…I can’t be serious all the time. I loved the ad. It started off like the typical guilt fest than quickly turned into a laugh fest. I think it is similar to looking at The Simpsons VS Family Guy. The Simpsons tends to be slightly smarter humor that requires thought process. You don’t have to over think it like some horrible Dennis Miller jokes on Monday Night Football but you have to put a small amount of effort into it. However that is not needed with Family Guy. No thought process is needed. In fact if you try to think while watching it chances are they will beat the thought out of you with mindless repetition. Think about Peter and “the bird is the word”. Or pretty much any other joke they do. But guess what? Some times you want dumb stupid entertainment. I won’t apologize for that. I will stand up and proudly say I liked the ad. It was funny. It made me laugh. Thank you Groupon.

CardioTrainer by WorkSmart Labs Inc


cardio trainer
First off let’s line out the basics.
What do we all want to know?
Cost-basic is free, with the ability to upgrade to a full trainer mode as well as a race mode
Add-ons-Move your bot game, and Race yourself and a calorie tracker.
Facebook compatible Yes, status posts and profile box
Twitter compatible-Yep, that too.

What does it do? Well it basically tracks your workouts. It uses both GPS and a pedometer so for those of you always running down your battery you can save it if you need to. It also calculates your calorie burn and lets you enter your weight to keep it accurate. The map feature is really great. I really enjoy being able to see where I have gone and share it with others.

Another good feature is music integration. It will start automatically if you choose or you can turn it on when you start the workout.

It also connects with google health as well as Facebook and twitter so no matter what social network you like it will do it. Unless you still use myspace but then if you do you probably don’t have a smart phone either. Cause that is so 2000.

They are constantly updating the app and making it work better. That is always a plus. They recently updated it to work with a blue tooth heart monitor. This is really neat. I don’t have the money to buy the monitor, and so will have to stick with using the one I have that feeds to my watch but that is a great feature.

I don’t use the add-ons. For counting calories their system is to basic and I don’t care for it. I use Calorie Counter instead. And the other add-ons are more to kinda take up time and I don’t have enough of that as it is.

Overall I would rate this app 4/5 droids. If the calorie counter was as good as the one I use it would be 5 for sure.
