Things I'm learning from Survivor

I realized the this season of Survivor gives us the opportunity to really understand what makes a hero and what makes a villain.

Heroes:
  • Allow men to "run their mouths," but vote out women when they do it.
  • Allow men to suck at puzzles, with no consequences. (Even though losing the puzzle means voting someone off.)
  • Are really good at building huts in the tropical forest.
  • Like to repeatedly shout "ONE VOICE" over the top of other people talking.

Villains:
  • Have the uncanny ability to predict horrible events. (At least if you are Courtney. She has two fulfilled prophecies so far: "Break her shoulder!" and "I hope he doesn't drop dead.")
  • Can't build huts or make coconut popcorn.
  • Allow men to complain loudly, but mock women when they offer suggestions. Or at least when they are waitress offering suggestions.
  • Make really sad boo-boo faces.
  • ROCK at puzzles.

I'm so glad I picked Courtney simply because she says the wrong thing at the wrong time in an attempt to be sarcastically funny and therefore comes off looking like a bitch. That is so me.
