What's the deal ...

... with the scruffy beards on David Letterman and Conan O'Brien? Are there auditions for a "Grizzly Adams" big screen remake? Are they running for president in the 1800s?

What's the deal?

I know, I know, it’s like we’re providing a how to manual for an alien invasion. Any alien race planning an invasion will only have to watch our movies to know how to defend against any counter-attacks. :)

Whats the deal with the popups on the Chaska Heralds websight, post them on the side and if peple are interested in a subject they can open and read them.
Whats the deal with articles like the Backyard raingauge and Mr Boe goes to city hall, why do we have to go to the last page to read the current postings. Current postings should be on the first page. Kind of Backwards isn’t it?

What’s the deal with stupid aliens?
Aliens continue to be portrayed as idiots in every movie. I’m waiting for some sort of intergalactic defamation lawsuit.
I watched “Battle: LA” last night. Once again, aliens were defeated by humans who discovered how to break down their defenses in about a day.
These were aliens, mind you, who flew across the universe in spaceships and attacked humans with arms made out of laser guns.
Here’s a few other examples:
Star Wars: Oops. I guess the Death Star can be blown up by hitting a special “Blow up” spot.
Independence Day: Gosh. All we need to do is download a computer virus into their spaceship and then they can all be destroyed.
War of the Worlds: Wow. They came millions of light years away, only to be killed by a cold.

What’s the deal with the latest “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” ads? They keep touting the movie as “Part 1” of the finale.
How can there be a “Part 1” of a finale? Wouldn’t “Part 2” be the finale?
I haven’t been this confused since “NeverEnding Story II.”

What’s the deal with the basketball-size Honecrisp apples?
They were the only honeycrisp variety available at the grocery the other day.
Don’t they sell “individual” size honeycrisp apples any more. Because really, these are “family size.”
And how do they grow them that big anyway? Is it some sort of watermelon/apple hybrid?

What’s the deal with the fortune cookie I got today: “Your present plants are going to succeed.”
How does the fortune cookie know anything about my continually under-watered plants?
Or perhaps fortune cookie manufacturers are going through the same trend as daily newspapers — ditching all their copy editors.

Not too long ago I saw a young girl (sans helmet) cruising down the bike path along Highway 41 as it passes Clayhole Lake looking … straight ahead? No, at her phone, as she texted while gliding down the bluff path.

What’s the deal with the driver I saw earlier today on Highway 169. He was text-messaging while driving 40 mph in a 65 mph zone. He had his phone at the top of the steering wheel, which he was holding, while texting with his thumbs.
Was driving slower while texting some sort of safety compromise between actually driving the speed limit or pulling over to the side of the road? Such as: I might only seriously injure someone instead of killing them if I drive slower while texting?
Idiot.

It seems like a good way for the restaurants to make money. I am having my mother over for a linner, or lupper, or dunch . . .OK. Maybe brunch sounds better, but we’re not eating until 3. What do you call that?

What’s the deal with the popularity of the “Mother’s Day Brunch”? Don’t mothers deserve a dinner, or at very least, a lunch?
Are these brunches so children can get them out of the way, so mothers don’t take up the rest of a perfectly good Sunday? That doesn’t seem quite right.
Is there a “Father’s Day Brunch”? If so, I don’t recall it being such a big deal. Maybe someday someone will start a “Father’s Day Happy Hour.”
Readers: What are your thoughts on the “Mother’s Day Brunch”?

Path has a 10mph limit, and has peds. Riding a bike on the road, you are often better seen by cars crossing intersections (read safer) than riding on the path. I’ve had my close calls with cars coming out of driveways or making turns while I’m on the path.

What’s the deal with bicyclists that insist on riding on the street with all the motorized vehicles when there is a perfectly good path (not sidewalk) right next to the roadway? Is taunting death that much fun?

What’s the deal with the sound quality on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien? I caught the show’s premiere with the band Pearl Jam and the sound quality was terrible.
Last night John Mayer performed “California Dreamin,” and it sounded like a California nightmare.
These musicians are playing in a brand new Tonight Show studio, but it sounded like they were performing in a quonset hut.
I enjoy O’Brien, but what’s the deal with the sound quality?

Well, it might be safer than drinking Mountain Dew. Apparently that electrifies you, making you susceptible to destroying bugs. I wouldn’t go into the water with that stuff in my system.

What’s the deal with those Sprite commercials where people start running into each other and explode into … water?!!!
Or is it Sprite? I’m not quite sure.
In any case, that advertisement frightens me.
What happens if I drink Sprite and accidentally bump into someone? Is that the end of me? Just squeegee my remains and pour me into a casket, or decanter.

What’s the deal with sun glares? You know, when you take a photograph, and you get spots on the image from the sun’s reflection off the lens?
Well, as a coworker pointed out to me, the new Star Trek movie has numerous sun glares. But much of that movie was created digitally — so the sun glares were created artificially. Pixar, as I recall, is also a frequent user of the “sun glare” effect — and those are completely computer animated, with no camera work.
I’m starting to see sun glares used more and more often in action movies.
So, while most of us are trying to avoid sun glares with our camera work, Hollywood is going out of its way to artificially create sun glares artificially.

What’s the deal with complaining about the heat? The snow left about five minutes ago, and I’m already hearing complaints of how hot it is.
Whenever you think it’s too warm this summer (all two weeks of it), think of the other 50 weeks of the year when you can die of exposure within minutes if you’re stranded outside.
I’ll take the 90-degree temps any time.

What’s the deal with all these nice new vehicles that apparently don’t come with blinkers? Or maybe they come with drivers that don’t know how to use blinkers? Your guess is as good as mine.

What’s the deal with the same school bus pulled over twice by the Chaska Police on Hundertmark in Jonathan within a few days time? Anyone else see this? I’m wondering what’s going on. I sure hope the driver got slapped with a ticket or two. Twice in a week is a little much!
