For fans of Mike Rowe on Dirty Jobs, this is wht he was doing in the early 90's... Working for QVC. This one's a little sad, actually. The lady he's talking too, anyhow.

80% of the American Soldiers stationed overseas during World War II had sexual relations with foreign women, and were treated to prevent venereal diseases.

I wonder if artificially impregnating pigs and hunting for geoducks on national television is a step up or down from QVC? :)

LOL! It's a damn good question. I'm gonna go with step up after pondering it for a bit. But just barely. hehe

Now I'm fascinated with knowing how he got into/onto that program. Was there an idea for such a show and he showed up at the host auditions, thinking "Anything, anything is better than selling one more damn ceramic cat sculpture!!" Or did he himself have the idea and approach Discovery Channel with it? "Hey, guys! Watch me sort this pile of waste product!"

I think it's google time...

But of course :)

From, Wiki, second only the Great and Terrible Oz as source of all knowledge:

The show is a spin-off of a segment host Mike Rowe once did on a local San Francisco program called Somebody's Gotta Do It. After completing a graphic piece on cow artificial insemination, Rowe was inundated with letters expressing "shock, horror, fascination, disbelief, and wonder". Rowe then sent the tape to the Discovery Channel, who commissioned a series based on this concept.[1]

Mike has stated in recently aired promos (done along side a large sow) that he originally wanted to honor his father, a lifetime pig farmer, by bringing fame to the less-than-glorious careers.


Wow.

I know! Makes me like him even more, knowing all that. :)

As a complete side note, I have to laugh at the fact that it's barely after noon and this is actually only the second strangest conversation I've had today...

Home remedies for treating a yeast infection. There are several, but the one we got stuck on was "painting the cervix and labia with gentian violet." ?!?!?!? And then we had to come up with methods of how to apply...paintbrush, turkey baster, one or two requring "audience participation." It's art, medical science, and possibly sexual deviancy all in one clever little package. :)

That caller was borderline if not on the line creepy.

80% eh? Sheesh, makes me wonder about today's numbers. Makes me wonder about how many of my friend's are in those numbers. O.O LOL

Wasn't she creepy? I had to share.

I don't know, I think it's a little different now. HIV wasn't around, and the std's that were had pretty simple treatments.

I don't have it but I thought the expressions on their faces was perfect for some std sharing, but in Star Wars everyone was down for it.

I actually had to stop the video about halfway through, because the lady was making me that uncomfortable. I can't imagine having to improvise your way through calls like that, but he's seems good at that kind of thing. (I heart him.)

I hate to see him brought low like that. He's much too cute and funny for that.

we live in a society of hypersensitive people who take drugs to feel nothing. but aside from that, you have Zoot Suits in your list of interests. let's be friends. :)

Funny how even doing something like selling porcelain dolls to shut Mike Rowe manages to be witty. I guess it prepared him for being witty while doing such things like regurgitating snakes to see what they're eating habits are. On a complete side note I think a better tag line for that show would be "I'm Mike Rowe, and god hates me"

To go back to an earlier discussion: have you noticed that SUP is still changing LJ? Once again changed the posting screen to EXCLUDE custom posting--meaning I can now only post to Everyone, No one, or ALL of my friends. Which totally sucks--my friends use LJ to plan surprise parties or post gift ideas for other people I'm friends with on LJ, and that won't be possible now.

Apparently LJers are organizing.

http://community.livejournal.com/ljspeaks/

There's talk on that board of having a massive leaving of LJ. A lot of people are apparently really fed up. I know you have contact with a lot of people through this blog, and I was wondering if you have heard anybody talking about this through your friends page. I'm curious if there is widespread grumbling, or if it is just limited to this community.

Btw, SUP is calling it "The New Era of LJ" This should be interesting...

First I've heard of this specific issue. You can't have custom friendsist anymore then? That's really messed up!!! Thank you for the headsup. I'm going to look into this.

I know for a fact that not a whole lot seems to have changed. A wedding ring means nothing when "what she don't know won't hurt her" is not uncommon.
