The Biggest Loser

Every year on channel 10/TDT the TV show The Biggest Loser is held. 12 contestants who are all overweight are sent to camp Biggest loser to lose that extra weight. They are forced to undertake a number of challenges,temptations and weigh ins.

Sometimes I think the show is mean and unfair.  The point of the show is to lose weight but in the temptations make them eat or drink 1000s of calories just for one more week in the house. This year they introduced the double and nothing bracelets. if the person with the double bracelet wins that person win $40,000 instead of $20,000. If the person with he nothing bracelet wins, they win absolutely nothing. This can take away the motivation for the contestants.

However there are good things.The trip to NZ for the top 6 was nice. The double bracelet was also OK. They let some contestants back to the game after they were eliminated. And they do the most important thing of the game, losing weight.

So is the game fair or is it more about entertainment? You decide.

Guns vs Tasars

A while ago a 14 year old boy left home in a rage. He stole 2 knives from the supermarket. He ran into some Cops at the local skate park. They asked him to put the knives down. When he didin’t they all shot him. He was killed instantly.

But what if the Cops had Tasars? Tasars shoot 2 wires with pins on the end of them. they go into the body and then send an eletrical charge along the wires. This imobilises the criminal. If the cops had had tasars the boy would still be alive. I think we should give the cops tasars and not guns. Cops are supposed to prevent Murder not kill people. If they have tasars hopefully no 14 year old boys will be killed by police.
