Sometimes I watch the strangest shows on television. Maybe I should rephrase that. Sometimes Hollywood puts out the strangest shows on television that of course this oinker can’t pass up and has to watch. Take for instance, a couple of weeks ago on A&E a new show came out called Fear: Buried Alive. Now, it intrigued me and mom. We thought you know we gotta check this out and see what it is all about. Now, I’m kind of like on one hoof WOW ya’ll did what and on the other hoof like that was time I can’t get back in my life. Why do you say? Let me break it down for you like only this oinker can – snorts.
There are three subjects that volunteered for this experiment. Now here’s something I forgot to mention – this is live television. Not only will they be buried alive in a coffin six feet under ground, they will be wired so that doctors on scene can watch their vitals and there are cameras as well as sound in the coffins. There are two guys and one girl.
The entire reasoning behind being buried alive is to conquer fears. Mom said she could somewhat maybe do the buried alive part. I mean, there are so many people watching you that they aren’t going to let anything happen. But that’s where they start throwing in twists. One twist is that as you are laying in your coffin, you are strapped in and then they push a button and your restraints are tighter. Another time, they play on your biggest fear. In one box with a guy, they let in a snake. Another box with the girl, they let in large rats. Another box with a guy, they let in thousands of huge roaches. All of this while you are six feet under the ground in a box. Can you handle that now?
During this time, the audio is turned off and on between the boxes so they can’t talk to each other while they adapt to their biggest fears. Now here you are in a box, hot, dark, you have something in the box with you, you are tied down and now you don’t have any communication with anyone – you are cut off from the world. You are thinking to yourself, “What have I gotten myself into?”
The guy with the snake – did I tell you his history? When he was little, he fell in a hole with a momma
snake and her babies. The momma snake bit him on the arm. And there he is with a snake in his coffin with him. He tapped out during a commercial towards the end. He couldn’t take it when the snake started slithering up from his feet towards his head.
Then the coffin with the girl, dirt starts falling in from the top of her coffin and she thinks it’s caving in. The remaining guy, his alarm starts going off and he thinks he’s running out of oxygen. Of course, mom and me called this – it was all in the plans to make them “think” they had immediate death upon them. A little over an hour they stayed in their boxes under ground.
How long would you stay?

Oh dear piggy heavens above. Yep, you read that right. A show on television called Naked and Afraid. I’ve been watching this on my television for a while now. It’s taken me a while to wrap my little piggy brain around the concept. Let me explain that to you so you get why I’m amazed.
A man and a woman sign up for this adventure. Voluntarily might I add – snorts – remember that part. They go somewhere remote in the world. It could be Panama, Fiji, a swamp, the beach, a rain forest or wilderness. They have to survive for 21 days alone. Together. Naked. No water, no food and no clothes. Did you get that? Naked. Two strangers that don’t know each other on their own.
WTP (what the pig?!) I can understand 21 days of survival in a remote place but naked? As in no clothes. Not a stitch of nothing. For all the world to see. A complete stranger. In nature. With bugs, rain, heat, no food, no water, slithery things like snakes, dirt, and yuck. Shivers to mergatroid.
This show comes on the Discovery channel. Have you seen it? If so, thoughts? If not, you gotta see this show. Oh, and let me add there is a small camera crew that follows them around. Of course they can’t help in any way unless there is an emergency but they see you in your birthday suit too.
So, are you going to sign up? Snorts.

This past weekend mom was outside minding her own business. She was just innocently walking to the mailbox perhaps even whistling. When out of the blue – BAM! Something hit the back of her head. She ran her fingers through her hair, didn’t feel anything and kept going. She didn’t think twice about it while she was running her errands.
But as the day went on, she started getting a headache. There seemed to be a lot of pressure in the back of her head. She reached up to give it a feel and WOW! There was a huge bump back there and her head felt slightly swollen. It also hurt to touch. What in the world happened?
She went and showed it to daddy. He felt it and gave her his best advice, “Call the nurse hotline.” Mom called the nurse hotline and told them what happened. Well, it is that time of the year when all of the bugs come out in nature. They think she possibly got bit by a bee or wasp. She took some benadryl and the swelling has went down some. You can still feel a little bump on the back of her head but the headache is nothing as bad as it was.
So friends with two or four legs if you are out in nature, please be wary of these winged creatures who like to hit it and run.
