    You've obviously never read a post of mine before.

    hint: My temper is perfectly fine, thanks.

I just strongly dislike the adult-oriented themes such as high-level violence (of course there's almost always going to be some like jumping on top of enemies to defeat them, or a series of big firecrackers going off destroying a model house, but that same scene on someone is too much. It's not just violence though (although it has the strongest effect), it's bad words (these have the weakest effect), and the male-female unitation thing (speaking doesn't count, this has the second-strongest effect, a very close second). I'd rather add another two weeks to my current song's already long streak than watch a 30-minute MA-rated TV show.

    Still wrong but close. It's 23.285 to the nearest thousandth (or 23 1/4 for simpler values, 23 2/7 for the nearest common fraction). Sure I'm 23 2/7, but I feel much more like 12 to 14 or so.

    I can respect your preferences. But I wonder if you shouldn't perhaps be making these decisions yourself based on circumstances rather than depending on some committee to decide what is "adult" and what isn't? What happens when some buffoon gives an "MA" rating to a show about the history of calculus? Are you really not going to watch it because some dork decided you shouldn't?

    These content rating things have been around for quite a while. They have been quite accurate and if they're far off, they'd often get sued as it is anyway. Whether it's rating something G when it should be MA (or the other way around), they'll get sued for it. When I watch TV, I first go by the title. If it's interesting or questioned, I look at the program description on my satellite's guide. If it's of interest, I check the rating, then the final motive for watching it is derived. I watch whatever has the highest motive and it's frequently the G and PG-rated ones that take over.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Isn't the rating decided on by the people who make the show itself (or maybe their network)? I know it used to be like that.
