30 Days

I have become addicted to a new show: 30 Days. I don't know if anyone else has watched it, but it is wonderful. In its first episode this season it had some issues with telling the truth, but I am willing to forgive that. This episode was about a man whose job was outsourced to India. He traveled to India to take his job back.

I’m going to skip to the moral of the story because that is what matters. The conclusion which Morgan Spurlock arrives at is that outsourcing American jobs to India is a good thing, because they need the jobs more. He believes that more American jobs should go overseas because Americans are richer and therefore do not need these jobs.

He is a proven leftist, but I don't know what to make of this belief. It’s not right or left, it’s just insane. I cannot seriously believe that this guy exists. I am going to watch his show again next week just to see what crazy shit comes flying out of this guy’s mouth.

Spurlock is a (Micheal) Mooresian liar, who is now about 7 1/2 minutes overdrawn on his big 15 minutes. He got famous for the sham documentary Supersize Me, in which he claimed his McDonald's-only diet caused him to become overweight (he has since lost all the excess, apparently). The catch was, he was eating 5,000 calories per day and not exercising. It doesn't matter where or what you eat, if you pack away that much and don't exercise, you're going to gain weight.
