Ah! Alton Brown. My favorite personality on the food and cooking channels. Humor and in-depth science of food is enjoyable, knowledgeable, and just plain fun! Alas! Probably does not make enough money! So…. what do the knothead executive who worship money and Ayn Rand do? Bank their money on Alton Brown and “Cutthroat Kitchen!” After all, with senseless, shameful, shallow Americans today, there will be a money-maker!
Knowledge is power. THAT’S IT! This senseless drivel on television, then Americans can no longer gain knowledge and wisdom! And Americans think this entertaining crap is better! …. BETTER … than the educational value of what Alton Brown was doing before – the SCIENCE behind preparing foods! That’s right… No value in the “S” part of STEM, is there? Because the swine at media corporate HQ tell us so! Mindless entertainment, so we don’t have to think anymore. But it is also barbaric.
People can make money at violating an item in the 10 Commandments: Murder. Contract murder. How horrible. But people are so numb that “Cutthroat Kitchen” and sabotage is not even recognizable as a flagrant abuse of at least ONE of the OTHER – perhaps two others – of the 10 Commandments? Let alone the consideration for the REASONS and PURPOSE behind the 10 Commandments – to avoid those things which can LEAD to murder. But alas! Sabotage cannot possibly EVER lead to murder.
Alton Brown: maybe you will make the money. But you are doing nothing more than contract murder, as far as I am concerned. Maybe it is murder in another sense. But it is murder. I hope no one will buy it. But then again, I don’t hold out much hope for what I WISH would happen.
I have lost all respect for Alton Brown.
