What is your feeling on Magicians?

They are pretty much the same as clowns minus the makeup. One time I was at a restaurant with my family and some fancy magician came over (WHILE WE WERE EATING…WHO DOES THAT?!?) and he started pulling out cards and doing these lame tricks. I was not impressed. Until someone can pull a million dollars out of their hat and give it to me, go away.

Only cool if they are being played by Batman and Wolverine. (Seriously, The Prestige was great)

I actually really liked magicians when I was a kid. Even learned a few magic tricks when I was a kid and threw a magic show at my little brothers B-Day party… yea I was THAT kid :/

I love magicians, but am constantly torn by a compulsive need to figure out how they do what they do and an irrational hope that magic actually exists. It’s complicated.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Trick 'r Treat

If a “trick or treater” came to your door and demanded a trick, what would you do for them?

Slam the door.

I explain to them how student loans work

I thought the origin to this was the other way around, where the trick or treater would do a trick to you if he didn’t get a treat. Anyway, I would probably do one of those magic tricks I learned as a kid 🙂 … or just take their bag of candy and slam the door… yea that sounds like the more delicious trick.

I’d give them a second chance to answer the question and/or phone a friend. Just take the damn treat.

 
 
 
 
 
 

wolfman

Who’s better a wolfman or a werewolf?

 

Kim with the rings

Kim P.

Werewolf. First of all, werewolves are only wolves on full moons right? Is that how that works? I don’t know, Twilight has me all messed up. Anyways, I love dogs. I don’t love men that are all hairy like a dog but aren’t really dogs.

What about a Man Wolf?? (I seriously pondered this question and can’t decide, help)

 
 
 
 

Angelo B.

Angelo B.

Not sure what the difference is… Is this similar to how Dracula is was a specific vampire? If so, I will go with Wolfman since if we follow the transitive property that if Wolfman = specific monster and a specific monster > a monster. Then Wolfman = better monster.

A werewolf. A wolf man is just half-assing it.

Fight Club’s 15 year anniversary just passed. What life lessons have you gained from Tyler Durden?

“Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing.”
Also, Tyler Durden/Brad Pitt is absolutely delicious in this movie. That is all.

That making a movie with an anti-corporate message loaded with product placement is a great way to sell posters to college kids (I had one on my dorm wall all four years). I am Jack’s Sense of Accomplishment.

I actually read this article where they were stating some points on how Tyler Durden, or actually the narrator, became the Joker from Batman. Which made some really good points especially the ability to wreak so much chaos within a city.

That sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.
