Jim Halpert: If he wasn't good Looking

Just wondering, if Jim Halpert from The Office
wasn't good looking could the writers made him
believable as the nice guy.

The Office ran from 2005 to 2013 and Jim and
Pam were the heart and soul of the show.

Female fans of the show, wrote on message boards,
what a nice guy he was, and how they wished they
had a boyfriend like Jim.

Well I personally think if the role of Jim was played
by an unattractive male, the role of Jim wouldn't work,
because Jim was well kinda a jerk.

The going up to Pam's desk wouldn't be called flirting
it would be called Harassment, the pranks on Dwight
would be called Bullying, and the cruel pranks on
Andy would've made Jim the most hated person
on tv.

How also would've they written Pam's reaction to
what Jim does??

Think for a second, if Jim was played by someone that
looked like Kevin, it wouldve been perceived to be

So why do these good looking guys in roles on television
seem to be applauded when they bully and harrass, but
the exact same behaviour is hated if played by a actor
that looks like Billy Bob Thorton?

There have been many pieces written on Jim Halpert and
how he is a sick sociopath who bullies and torments, yet
the female fans of the Office, always called him a nice
guy, Why? Is it just the looks thing?

Can someone explain it to me?

Back to the Future

Back to the future day was great. It seems the
whole world got into it, people from all over,
remembing the greatest movie trilogy of
all time.

So so glad that everybody got right behind it.

Even though there are no Hoverboards. My final
impressions of this movie trilogy is one of

I guess the day for me is best left in
saying this....
Marty McFly got his self tying shoes, and
Doc Brown left us with a great message, that
even though the future is not what we imagined,
it's because it hasnt been written yet.

So make it a good one.


This sums up it. It seems Hendo 2.0 hoverboard is
lamer than their 1.0 version.

The Hoverboard dream is officially dead.

Here is a link to the  Hendo Hoverboard news item.

It had been fun writing about Hoverboards.

But now its time to grow up.

I will have one more post, but that will be about back to the

The Hoverboard dream didnt come true, and is at
a end.

Time to move on.

October 21 2015 is nearly here.

Of course New Zealand hits this date first, but
its October 21 2015 4.29pm Pacific USA Time
that the world is waiting for.

Back to the future fans everywhere will be
celebrating this day, and the greatest movie
trilogy of all time.

What will this day Bring? Self tying shoes,
Pepsi Perfects, and maybe just maybe,
what could be the greatest invention of
mankind. A working hoverboard for the

I hope the day also brings, cast reunions,
stories and people reminiscing. This day
which is so special to back to the future
fans, of course wont come again, so
enjoy it, make the most of it, watch it,
dream it.

The day of our childhood fanasties is
coming right up.

Lets make it a good one.

  Update 6:
Hendo's Statement on the Hoverboard

Update:5 Mostly bad news, with a bit of good, Hendo
today, stressed they're not a hoverboard company, and
and the hendo 2.0 will only walk on a copper surface, there
are some compaines that want to create a hoverboard
park (like  a skatepark) but that is down the road. In
the meantime, you will need a copper surface. The
main bad new is that they're stressing that Hendo is
not a hoverboard company. Again this up and down
rollercoaster ride, of good and bad news is terrible.

 update 4:   Hendo Arxpax Official Statement

 (Update 3: Reports coming in, that some skate parks 
across the USA and theme parks may be developed so
Hendo users can use their hoverboards. Im just blown
away by all this, completely stunned, of course we will
know more on October 21 2015, back to the future day,
but this is just plain brilliant)

(update 2: Is it time to say... "HOVERBOARDS

 (update: major news sources are now reporting
this story, so it appears 100% factual, we of
course wont know until October 21 2015 what
the board is going to be like, we know the price
$10K USA. There is now talk of a hoverboard
theme park . This appears to be real, Im still
quite stunned, dont know to think, for the first
time, it really really appears that the world
might have working hoverboards, you will still
have to use it on the  special surfaces
 that Hendo has devloped, but hey its a working
hoverboard, can you believe it!!!!)

As you know hendo hoverboards came out some
time ago, with a version of a hoverboard, it did
hover several inches above the ground, but
only on a special magnetic floor, you could stand
on it, and use your bodyweight to make it move.

It was such an advancement to anything else we
have ever seen, but still lightyears behind, the
hoverboard featured in back to the future 2.

Hendo Hoverboard according to pc magazine,
has said  they will release Version 2.0 of their


Is this what we have been waiting for??? Could
it finally be  we will have what little kids and big
kids have been dreaming about for decades.

There have been hoaxes before, there have
been massive letdowns, but is this it?

Should I be getting excited? Or will it be another

I have real hope this time. Less than a week i will

The anticipation is killing me.

Time will tell.

Madison Avenue ruining the countdown to October 21 2015

Never underestimate the power of money. With a
week to go until October 21 2105, and as fans around
the world wait with anticipation of a actual hoverboard
and back to the future day, the money people have been
trying to steal the day.

Advertisers have been firebombing every website, spending
tens of millions with news stories, promotion and generally
BS about that ugly pathetic segway and having the
nerve to call it a Hoverboard.

I knew the buildup would be bad, when every news site were
cheering justin beiber on, as his dancers danced on a segway, and
they called it a Hoverboard.

I never thought it will be at this level though, even if you googled
"Back to the future hoverboard" you basically come up with webpage
after webpage after webpage for stories about a "segway" yet the
news report calls them hoverboards.

Its really a hijacking of the upcoming back to the future day.

Heres hoping at least some websites will make a stand, "Vanity"
already has.

So deep breaths, as we countdown to Back to the
 Future day, with the slimmest of hopes, that Hendo
 or maybe Lexus or someone, somewhere
has invented  a real hoverboard, and hoverboard
 means no wheels.

Time well tell.

One week to go
