    Ok according to wikipedia these are the first seven episodes they'll do, in order.

    War on Porn

    New Age Medicine

    Nasa

    Dolphins

    Sleep Inc. (probably mattresses and some sleeping pills and maybe those learn while you sleep things)

    Being Green

    Sensitivity Training (a great topic, worthy of BS)

    So that leaves 3 left. I hope they tackle sex offender laws (any law that treats streakers and mooners like real rapists is serious bs) and violent video games, I really don't want to have to wait till season 7 to see them.

    Well, since they've already completed filming for this season, here are the topics I'd like to see covered in the next one: - The Un-funny Pages: Why do comic strip syndicates deny new, innovative cartoons a chance to appear in papers and instead keep publishing strips that have gone on for 60-70 years despite offering no new material, as well as strips that don't bother with humor and focus on appealing to a certain demographic?

    Curses: Debunking famous ones such as the curse of Tutankhamen's tomb, the Red Sox curse, the Hope Diamond, ect.

    Pop Art: I've seen a string draped over a chalkboard and light bulbs dipped in chrome and they're in the freakin' Philadelphia art museum! Crap like that is not art, and the "artists" are just manipulating a gullible patronage.

    Astral Projection/Karma: two BS theories that I'd love to see put to rest.

    Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories & Holocaust denial: @$$holes who believe those lies deserve to be torn a new one.

    You know what's b-u-l-l-s-h-i-t? The fact that the title of this show on tv.com is Bullsh**!

    Yes, yes it is. I'd try to get that changed, but when I originally was posting to the first few eps, whoever was modding me (i'm not totally sure it was Benzite) rejected a few (for example in the baby bullsh** ep where Penn goes "why does the baby whisperer whisper....WHO THE F*CK KNOWS?" was rejected). I get the feeling that that probably won't get changed though I do find it odd that half the early synopses actually do have the uncensored word in them. I may not like having to change them, but I'm going for the uniformity so if the overall site's gonna call it bullsh** that, unfortunately, is what I'll use.

    Sweatshops – why they are necessary, beneficiary, and wanted by people in third world countries. An episode on the destruction caused by labour unions would also be good. Last but not least an episode revealing Che Guevara as the murderous collectivist parasite that he was.

    If I Could Choose Season 8, It would be:

    - "Live" Television, Good Luck Charms
    - Walt Disney Corporation
    - Energy Drinks (Rock Star, Monster, Etc.)
    - Declawing Indoor Pets
    - TWA 800, The Holocost
    - The KKK, Emo
    - Commercials, Age of Consent
    - Hummer's, Movie Ratings
    - Ocean Pollution (I Doubt they'll be able to say this is Good and not Harmful)
    - All our BS! (What they were Right about and were Wrong About)
