My roommate can go hours upon hours without saying anything... He can turn on the TV, sit on his ass and not make a sound. But, by God... if the news comes on, you can't shut the boy up. We don't live in the news capital of the world, so I've only got about 10 minutes worth of legitimate information to sort through. And tonight, like so many others, he found a way to talk through all 10 of them. And it wasn't as though he was discussing the news. He was just rattling on about all sorts of stupid stuff. I looked away from him, turned the TV up and said, "let's see what they're saying here" and he kept talking. I tell you... I don't understand these kids.
