10 On Tuesday - Fads You Just Don't Get

10 Fads You Just Don't Get

1. William Hung (He auditioned for Americal Idol, he was terrible, he now has multiple CDs)

2. Low carb diets such as Atkins (Can it really be healthy to have a diet consisting of mostly meat and cheese?)

3. Baggy / saggy / ripped pants (These just look tacky)

4. Ant farms (This just doesn't make sense because...aren't we trying to keep ants out???)

5. Heelys (I just think these are dangerous...but that might have something to do with my lack of coordination when it comes to anything with wheels)

6. World of Warcraft (I understand the fun in online games, I don't understand things like couples breaking up and fighting over their accounts)

7. Using online slang like lol and brb in oral speech (We don't write in the same way that we speak...why would we speak in the same way that we write?)

8. Jumping Beans (These are just weird!)

9. Energy drinks (I can kind of understand one for a boost...but people who drink them tend to drink many or mix them with alcohol. Both options make people act nutty!!!)

10. Staples Easy Button (I really just don't understand this. People love it and I don't get it.)

ooh I love your list. I hope you don't mind but I am gonna post pics of mine too. Great idea!

I don't know what all of these are but, as a dietitian (inactive), I certainly agree with the low carb diets. Someone told me once, "well, they work!". I replied that drinking Drano works too but that doesn't mean it is recommended!
