That's not true. Some people have three. We'd have to be careful how we treat dogs too, as they have six--meaning they'd get triple the votes, right? Cows to a lesser extent (having four).

I thought of this story the other day when I was engrossed in a Facebook debate on Calvinism. (Calvin was whack, yo.) Calvinism is the relativity prison.

I presume you are referring to the Original version of The Ring as being the creepiest movie..

The US remake isn't a patch on the original Japanese version.

I was just thinking about that movie this morning, oddly enough. I have to echo the sentiments that it's about the creepiest movie ever put down on celluloid, and not because the imagery was particularly grotesque (certainly not, by modern post Clive Barker standards) but the psychologically horrific aspects were so well done, with allusion at first, leading up to what was the best horror denouement I think I've ever experienced...

I hear the sequel was meh though.
I've only seen the American remake. I really liked the movie, good horror stuff, up until the final reveal. And that final reveal was so so dumb that I'm not sure I like the movie anymore. If I retcon that part out it's not too bad.

I asked for it for Christmas, but Santa brought me Ace of Bass instead. (To be fair, I also asked for that). I do want to buy it sometime soon, and I'm looking forward to his Bbardle CD too. Also, I need to go get a Jonathan Coulton CD--probably the one with "Creepy Doll".

I have seen both. The American version is superior.

Excellent outro. I really wasn't expecting it. Anything that means the people I walk past give me 'that look' because I'm giggling at them uncontrollably is uber-awesomes. I love it when absurdism unveils the absurdity in life, excellent satire.

Oh boy. Where to start with this one?! Great episode from start to finish. I thought the main feature was very good horror. A world of passive voice! In Soviet Russia, world lives you! Nicely executed.

But oh, the intro and outtro were truly brilliant. Spot-on political satire all around, and I didn't expect the bonus spliced together news clips at the end in the least. MUTANT SEA TURTLES!!1!!!one!!!!!

And then I get here and read this thread, and completely fall to pieces when I read this:
strawman wrote:I agree with treeman (apparently cellulosic minds think alike). However, the senate idea has the same problem as Jehovah's Witnesses. Millions of players, only 144,000 winners.
But all that's required to fix that is an amendment whereby everyone gets their senate seat in exchange for a DC PayPal donation.
I propose we call our postpartisan (postpartum) party NIPPLES, since everybody's got two of them (unless they had to surgically remove them).
Bo would create our campaign poster, Uncle Sam with a milk mustache: "Got Milk? Vote Nipples!"
Debate formats would be rap.
Just because we're postpartisan doesn't mean we aren't deadly serious about the really important issues. But the most important issue is Giant Mutant Turtle/Monster Jelly Fish. After all, the earth is 80% water, and as England knows, whoever controls the waves controls the world.
Only clowns fight to control Minnefreakinsota.
Get ready for 1066 redux: Invasion of the Normans!
Or 1865 Redux: Sherman's march to the Sea!
Either way, it's not unprecedented.
Oh god. The laughter. Make it stop. Can't. breathe.

Whoever's in charge of ShermanPAC needs to get on the ball and start showing some Nipples before the next election.
