Anybody see the commercials run on the History Channel for Axmen?   (This season's 'Ice Road Truckers' I guess.)
 
They keep showing how dangerous of a job it is, then they keep using a guy who holds up his hand and he's missing most of his fingers.   It's just a nub with a finger or two sticking out.    The problem is they use it in every commercial.
 
Good god almighty.  It is almost as bad as the fungus lifting the toenail.

History/Discovery and the lot have all lost their way.

Ice Road Truckers was ALMOST entertaining but fell short so they moved to the woods and I watched two f them so far. (I live in Portland, Oregon and grew up near one of the towns showcased on the show and know the family of a logger on there)
Man, it is boring as hell. Then I realized, or my wife made me realize when she said, "Why watch a show about stuff we grew up around? Logging and rednecks are everywhere why spend an hour trying to make it interesting?"

Maybe they show the guy's nubs so we could see just how dangerous it is. I watched their first episode, mehh, it looks hard. Glad someone else is doing it.

Using Jimi Hendrix as theme music is awesome.

Agreed. I have no idea where they got the idea that every last little profession on the face of the Earth deserved its own reality series, but I'm seriously sick of that crap. There's even one called "Parking Wars" that's about meter maids. Meter maids, for Christ's sake!!!
 
"Hey, look everyone! Parking Wars is on! They're about to put a boot on some guy's car again!" 
 
Ooooooooooooooh...just thinking about it gets me so excited that I almost want to touch myself. Unhappy
