How do I ask my future big brother to be my big?
Im in a sorority and i finally found the perfect guy to be my big brother--- trouble is, i dont know how to ask him. Any ideas?
Answer: Just so you know most sororities don't allow you to have a "Big Brother" because in the past that was used as a form of hazing. So don't go around bragging about it. Sorority women don't have bigs with fraternity men.

How do you feel about surveillance and the idea of a "Big Brother" society?
Hey yall. Im doing a project for this class Im in about Big Brother societies and I need to focus on an American perspective. How do you feel about increased surveillance? If you can tell me your thoughts, your sex, age, and location, that would be most helpful in order to keep a steady statistical sort of data.
Other things to consider:
Do you feel there has been an increase in surveillance?
If so, how have you seen this manifest itself?
Do you feel safer? Why?
In what ways have you noticed or encountered surveillance in your area?
Any general thoughts are deeply appreciated. Thanks!
Answer: In the UK, it has gone too far.
The term "Big Brother", as you know, comes from George Orwell's novel "1984" (read it!), which was set in Britain. In my opinion surveillance here now greatly exceeds the snooping Orwell condemned. For instance, if you read the book the hero escapes surviellance by going into poorer ("prole") areas of London: the cameras normally only covered areas where the government elite worked and lived. But there are hundreds of cameras all over London. Similarly, Winston Smith escaped to the countryside, but now we have satellite surveillance.
Excessive surveillance in general leads to a breakdown in society, becasue everybody suspects everybody else. The demoralisation leads to economic difficulties because a demoralised workforce does as little as possible and because crushed people do not yeild the innovations that are crucial to the success of a developed economy.
A prime example of a country that was led to disaster by excessive surveillance was East Germany.
These are general points: as a foreigner I would not wish to express an opinion concerning the extent or desirability of surveillance in the US.

What happens on Big Brother when someone breaks the rules?
I happened across the show Big Brother last night. Ive never watched it before, but there was nothing else on. A guy was a "Have Not" and on food restriction, but he kept sneaking and eating foods he wasnt allowed to eat. The other housemates kept telling him to stop and telling him that he was going to get into trouble, but he didnt care. The show ended before anything happened to him. What happens if you break the rules?
Answer: Have nots can eat things like Pickles, condiments like Mustard,Ketchup, and one of those shake things along with slop and whatever America voted for them to eat for that week.But other than that they can't eat anything else
if they eat food they can't have and are a Have not. They get a Penalty vote against them if nominated or if they aren't nominated they get like an extra day of being a have not
Jen in Season 8 was nominated and she ate an apple when she was on slop. She got a penalty vote against her
Enzo in Season 12 ate and was a have not.He got an extra day of being a have not since he wasn't nominated
They aren't as strict as they used to be.They have let people eat when they aren't supposed to or sleep in the Extra room.They have let people get away with it sometimes
That's the rules for the have not rules. There are other rules too.
You can't sing because of copyrights.But they just tell them to stop singing or just move to another feed(For afterdark) or go to fish for the live internet feeds
You can't tell people if you are going to nominate them.
you can't talk about production
You can't talk about your diary rooms with other houseguests
Those things they just tell them to stop
You can't physically harm other houseguests or destroy Big Brother property(Like your mic) or you will get kicked out

How can I help my big brother overcome his drug addiction?
My big brother is having a relationship with Mary Jane (marijuana). He knows that its not good for him but he says he likes what it does to him so he continues to use it. The thing is, Mary Janes really affecting his life. Hes getting failing grades in school (hes really smart so I dont know how that happened) and hes getting worse at baseball. He even spends more time locked up in his room with Mary Jane than hanging out with anyone else. I think he really needs help. Hes such a gifted person and I dont want his talents to go into waste. Were from Eastport, Maine.
Answer: Try to convince your big brother into entering a drug rehabilitation facility to get treatment. I'll include some sites containing list of rehab facilities near your place. A smart and athletic person like him should not be a victim of drug addiction. He has a great life ahead of him because he's smart and talented. Maybe he'll just screw it all up because of marijuana. Have you told your parents about it? I think you should. It's about time to start intervening. Do it fast!

EDITORIAL | IN OFFICE; Immigration and the Candidates
Even by the low standards of presidential campaigns, the issue of immigration has been badly served in the 2008 race. Candidates -- and by this we mean the Republicans, mostly -- have been striking poses and offering prescriptions that sound tough but will solve nothing. They have distorted or disowned their pasts and attacked one another - Editorial scores Republican presidential contenders responses to immigration issue; singles out Rudolph Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee as candidates who have changed their views to call for stricter enforcement; praises John McCain as single voice of reason among Republicans; says Democratic field, including Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama vigorously supported legislation that was killed by Republican opposition; holds that bill was flawed, but it contained seeds of true reform

How many signitures would i have to send Channel 4 to stop broadcasting Big Brother?
I cant stand it, and they have spread out into about 4 different channels.
Does honestly anyone care?
SO i think ill start a petition online to kill Big Brother and get some real programs on.
Answer: Never Enough. Until the ratings come down far enough than big brother will forever be on the screens. At around 1-3 million viewers daily for C4, very stable for them,there seems to be no reason for the channel to stop showing it. And because alot of younger viewers watch it, advertisers are drawn to the program

What is the screening process of the big brother program?
I live in washington state, it might be different everywhere. I am interested in becoming a Big brother. I was wondering what the screening process entailed and how long it takes. Do they look at your job history? Do a drug test? Or just have a simple background check? That doesnt seem feasible because I heard it takes quite awhile to to be accepted into the program. Please only answer if you actually know. Or can provide me with a website that has information the subject.
Answer: They look at everything, and have an EXTENSIVE interview process and reference check process. Visit the web site for the Washington state Big Brothers Big Sisters web site for more information.
It is a LONG process to get into the program - that's part of the screening. They figure, if you can't commit to the screening process, you won't commit to your little brother/sister either.

Whats the difference between Big Brother & The Real World?
I hate big brother, but for a drama project I have to do something along the lines, only with an entirely fictional cast.
I asked my drama teacher if we could do something different & he said that we had to do something along the lines, but not nescesarilly the same.
He suggested this american programme called the real world. But from what Ive heard it seems pretty similar.
What exactlys the difference?
Answer: real world has no voting out or eviction neither are they stuck in a house all day it also does not have contrived tasks like big brother.
Big brother is very contrived deliberatly tries to get a bunch of crazy weird people together and then imprisons its contestants in a house and it has a system were people are gradually voted out until there are three left and a winner is chosen.
Real world gets a bunch of relatively normal people together to share a house for a certain amount of weeks like normal roomies or house mates would do.
there are no evictions no contrived tasks they can leave the house go out bring friends over ect .
Real world is less contrived and phoney than big brother since the program makers just get the people together and then lets them get on with life in a normal everyday way

why do the women in big brother wear thongs while taking a shower?
Ive noticed from watching big brother clips that oftentimes, the women shower only wearing a thong. Dont they realize that the entire world entire see their butt and breasts? I mean, if they like the attention, why not just shower nude? I would think its hard to shower and scrub yourself while wearing a thong. Also, someone told me that they sign contracts saying that they have to wear a thong while taking a shower. Is this true?
Answer: That way Big Brother can be subscribed by a larger audience. Meaning if they are nude only over 18 people can watch. Half nude 15+. ;)
