I’d like to think of myself as a rather intelligent person; I’ve been on the dean’s list from day one, I’ve gotten academic awards, blah blah blah. Then why, oh why, do I watch the things I watch? I just sat on my couch and watched people dive into a tank of rotting squid to retreive as many sunken weights as they could in 3 minutes. I also find myself watching normal, decent-looking women get surgery after surgery in order to look like the “ideal” woman and to have a “new” life.
