Yesterday was fun, Lucy & I visited Double R as he was collecting money for his latest Double R Challenge:Â Change For Haiti.Â Since Dub was in our neck of the woodsâ€¦Stinky & I jumped in the car & visited him at Big O tires!
Thanks to Walter Koenig for joining us this morning.Â Walter is the original Chekov from Star Trek, plus he was in Babylon 5â€¦Walter has a film out that he made called InAlienableâ€¦which is out on DVD today.Â We all watched, erâ€¦we all tried to watch this film, itâ€™s more like â€śIn-Ambien-ableâ€ť as this film put me to sleep in less than 10 minutes.Â BJ asked me if I saw a scene that happened relatively soon in the film, and I said â€śNo, I was already asleep.â€ťÂ Regardless of our reviews, if you are a Sci-Fi fan, you should probably check this out as it has a bunch of Sci-Fi stars like Richard Hatch (â€śBattlestar Gallacticaâ€ť), Erick Avari (â€śHeroesâ€ť), Marina Sirtis (â€śStar Trek: The Next Generationâ€ť), Richard Herd (â€śVâ€ť), and others.Â The special effects on this film are hilariousâ€¦check out towards the end of this trailer there is a baby that is an alien that is supposed to have octopus like tentaclesâ€¦but it looks like they just went to a sex toy shop & attached fake penisâ€™s as extra arms.
This story blew our mind:
A new study from the University of California at Davis has found that ONE in FIVE women has experienced some form of "pregnancy coercion," which is when a guy uses threats or deception to try and get his girl pregnant.Â And 15% of women say they've been victims of birth control sabotage, which is when a guy pokes holes in condoms or destroys contraceptives in some other way. Overall, 53% of women say they've experienced physical or sexual violence in a relationship.Â And of those women, 35% say the guy tried to coerce them into getting pregnant, or sabotaged their birth control in order to "trap" them.Â A woman named Elizabeth Miller led the study.Â She says, quote, "This study highlights an under-recognized phenomenon where male partners actively attempt to promote pregnancy against the will of their female partners." Not only is reproductive coercion associated with violence from male partners, but when women report experiencing both reproductive coercion and partner violence, the risk for unintended pregnancy increases significantly."Â (EurekAlert)
Why would any guy want to trap a woman by getting her pregnant?Â There are so many woman out there that have a â€śbiological ticking clockâ€ťâ€¦these guys should be with those chicks instead of impregnating the few women out there that donâ€™t want a child.Â My take is that these men are so insecure, and donâ€™t want to lose the woman they are withâ€¦so they impregnate them to keep themâ€¦itâ€™s the same logic why women try and impregnate their men.
We had a guy named Shane on the show that admitted that he is that guyâ€¦he said that by having a baby there is a lifetime connection, and he can manipulate the woman to do what he wants.Â He doesnâ€™t have a child, but said he is trying.Â I have to sayâ€¦this view point saddens me.
This was a spirited debateâ€¦download the 8â€™er to hear it.
