X-Men: Deadpool/thought bubbles = BFFs

Deadpool would have handled this shit with grace.

Let me tell you about me and Lara's exciting evening!

Okay, so there was a Mexican night at Cath and Jen's and we all had noms and wonderfulness and Lara and I decided we'd take off and catch the earlier bus home, perhaps not taking into account that it was a Friday night in a kind of crappy area of the city.

All is going well until we're halfway across one of the little side streets and this arsehole comes hooning around the corner. Since he's the speeding dickhead we sort of had little choice but to get the hell back off the road and stand there on the sidewalk. Dickhead pauses at the corner slams his horns and yells at us 'FUCK YOU!' Then, because my mouth goes before my brain does, I turn and yell out at the car, "EAT ME, BITCH!"

We keep walking and dickhead slams on his brakes and come screeching back towards us. Lara's pulling out her phone and whispering 'oh shit, oh shit,' but I was just seeing red. I was thinking Fuck you, mate, because you're in the goddamn wrong here and if you think I'm going to let you intimidate me then there's no way in hell that I'm backing down.

Which is STUPID because not only haven't I been in a real fight since I high school, this guy could be some huge kickboxer with a knife for all I know. But, no, adrenalin said bitch, let's fucking go!

I'm glad that he didn't get out of the car and after letting the car sit for a moment took of again. (At the time I actually felt a little let down.) edit: re-reading this makes it sound like I think I'm some sort of tough chick. I'm not. I'm a rubbish wimp which makes my emotional decision to want to fight this guy all the more ludicrous as I'm fully aware of the pummeling that would follow.)

The tortillas were awesome though.

Silent Hill, not actually all that silent it turns out.

Lewi has come over to visit Lara (and us a little bit, but mostly Lara!) and he's teaching me how to play Silent Hill like the n00b I am. Which involves a lot of swearing at the screen when the monsters show up, insulting their mothers and sexual proclivities. (Turns out, when monster killing, I turn into a raging misogynistic who yells things at the screen like "die, you fucking whore beast from hell! FUCKING EAT MY BAT!" Which is... a little concerning for my inner mental state, I'm sure.)

I have discovered two things about this game so far. First that, oh my god, is there a shit load of walking around. Down streets, in buildings, walking walking walking gimme more monsters! (So I can panic.) And secondly, the protagonist that you play, James? A complete and utter walking Doesn't Deserve To Live. Oh, so stupid! So stupid! Let me count the ways.

I might understand all this if he were some super cool marine dude before coming to Silent Hill, but he was a regular freaking guy! He has no badassary excuses!

Also, at some angles, he looks like Edward Cullen. No one else seems to see this, but I do. I SEE IT. And it means my desire to help him remain alive is even less. Damn he and I being the same person!
Spaced: People like you make me sick!


Don't read this unless you feel like being so fucking angry you want to kill everyone even remotely near to you.

College students proud of 'pro-rape' Facebook page.

I honestly do not even had WORDS for how incensed I am right now.

I think the worst part is that I'M NOT EVEN SURPRISED. Goddammit, society. I HATE YOU.

But when you combine a sexist culture with an inadequate education system, you get boys, who would no doubt condemn 'real rapists', telling researchers that is is acceptable to 'hold down a girl and force her to have sexual intercourse in instances such as when she gets him sexually excited or changes her mind'. According to a 2001 report in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, 54 percent of teenage boys agreed with this comment.

That, right there, is quoted from the book Princesses and Pornstars by Emily Maguire and it is horrifying.

54 percent? THAT IS MORE THAN HALF! (Just in case the maths failed you there. You're welcome.)

Just to be clear, gentlemen I know, I'd rip your cock off and feed it to you. Although hopefully most of those boys they talked to will, at some point, realise that that is fucked up?



EDIT: Ohshit, the irony of LJ auto picking a Pyramid Head icon for my for this post is lolworthy.
