Happy anniversary! Due to a glitch in the Matrix, we forgot to mark year number 6 since you first became a Sifter. The community wouldn't be the same without you. Thanks for your contributions!

I don't like Newt, wouldn't vote for him if you paid me tons of cash.

However, this isn't as bad of an idea as it may seem. You don't mandate it, you ALLOW it. Allow students to sign up for janitorial duty, pay them a decent minimum wage, even give them an hour during school with which to perform their duties, or an hour before or after school. Allow the head janitor to also fire them if they suck, and hire outside help if resources are low. Make it a maximum of 5 or so hours a week per student.

I see nothing wrong with this.

Nice points, Wax.

This show has many 'problems'. It's obvious by its popularity that many people indulge in Schadenfreude, which is left to their own moral compass. And sure, we all think it's despicable for the rich to pay the poor for degrading acts, but that will never stop as long as there is even the slightest differences in pay. After all, people tend to do what they can get away with. However, the real problem here is that people have something to hide in the first place. If the slut had just simply been honest with herself and her husband about wanting to be a slut, and not bended to society's and possibly her religion's standards on what is acceptable, there would be no show with her in it.

My wife and I are a perfect example. We are completely open and honest with each other. The show could not possibly bring any new or shocking information from either one of us. The audience would be snoring in no time.

As a side note, that last question was a trick. Since the question is so subjective and there can be so much internal conflict on the answer, it is ENTIRELY possible that no matter which way the person answered, the lie detector would say it was a lie. It's one of probably a few failsafe questions used by Fox so they don't have to pay the contestants the money.

Now THAT is classy... :-(

The only way to stop shows like this is to stop watching. After all, advertising is their income. Make it known to friends and family that you not only do not indulge yourself in this kind of Schadenfreude, but that you would want them to refrain from it as well.

I personally have never watched this show or any other degrading reality show.
