The Snob Horizon

I collect snobberies.

I like knowing what makes some things high-quality and other things crappy (it's different for every kind of thing), and being able to distinguish the subtle differences between the two.

However, the traits that distinguish good from bad are arbitrary and, like fashion, are often cyclic and based on class/expense rather than any intrinsic measure of quality in the snobbed object.

The Motivational Power of Big Pants

I've been watching The Biggest Loser, and enjoying its strange combination of inspiration, disgust (stop crying already), exploitation, abuse, and crass commercialism.

I really love how whenever we see a retrospective of a contestant (every time someone is kicked off boot camp island, and once for each contestant on the finale) they have a big pants moment, where they stand behind their giant old pants and then drop them to the floor to show how awesome they are now.
