If Quentin Tarantino was black, would there be such a fuss over his new movie? I ask you that. You guys can downvote till your hands melt off but you know damn well the answer to that. You know it's true.

For your benefit, I say it again: Acid is drinkable. Not only that, you drink some form acid every day. In fact, I am drinking my morning acid right now (coffee).

Fact is, the term "acid" in itself means very little

Go buy some hydrochloric acid and dilute it to you preference, drink up.

the integration of entertainment and commercial advertising must go beyond ads.. with social media reshaping the landscape of advertising and agency income from media buying... entertainment and entertainers are HIGHLY underutilized as mediums and media that not only target the lifestyle of the consumer.. but makes fans who do more than just consume coffee.. it becomes part of the psyche.. the values.. the chosen lifestyle of the fan. Fans also promote and through word of mouth.. a brand can become insanely popular overnight. Putting a JPOP star in a commercial is nothing new or that cool.. but creating a multi dimensional strategy can enhance the career of the artists and if done properly.. grow and sustain sales for the associated product.

Well, duh.

In agreement to a commentator above. If someone did this to my kid I'd flat out murder him and get away with it.

ave you been conscripted? Many of those of us who HAVE been conscripted under threat of violent punishment or death would attest that it is slavery.

You've never conscripted so shut up.

Posted in: Sony Pictures exec: 'Zero Dark Thirty' does not advocate torture See in context

This movie shouldn't be nominated because it's based on a whopping lie. There's no photographic evidence, no autopsy record, a "body" was conveniently "buried" at sea and nobody in the ship's crew witnessed it. Two weeks later, a helicopter crash allegedly eliminates almost all the SEAL team that carried out the raid, leaving behind a handful of guys to write contradicting books, advise on screenplays, etc.

^^THIS. ^^THIS. and ^^THIS. For a thousand years.

Why would he take a photo like that anyway? Guy's a sicko.

So that it may never be forgotten... obviously.

Why do you think they filmed an avalanche of corpses being bulldozed into mass graves after the holocaust?

That's right you probably guessed (no you didn't), SO THAT THE IMPORTANT IMAGE REMEMBERED FOREVER.

And what about the late Kevin Carter? Do you think he was a sicko too?

I just want a comfortable relationship with an average woman that loves me and who I can be an endless source of love to, no matter what. In other words we can proudly fart in each others presence without hesitation nor second thought.

I'm totally serious.

Posted in: 2 new Ghibli films out in summer 2013 See in context

I'm very excited about this. Miyazaki and his associates are among the best in their craft EVER. Grave of the Fireflies is the most heartbreaking film I've ever seen. Generally one sheds some tears when moved by a film and then that's that, however for me, that movie made me grieve for days.

I'm a full grown man with real day to day problems but I simply could not let that go, I've been trying to steel myself to watch it again because I have an HD copy of it now but it's very hard for me. Anyway, anything that can have that much of an affect on someone is quite something.

Ghibli is top notch.

When I was 18 I was mugged when I was on pizza delivery. It was pretty scary and I never would have thought of it happening considering the area I was in, it didn't seem like the kind of place. Needless to say are started carrying a gun with me when I was working from then on. No worries.

I don't exactly care about their band their brand or the music, catchy though I must admit and can grow on you. But they are gorgeous, all of them, all these Asian girl bands, no question. I like seeing them acting up and being cute on TV shows, I find that enjoyable. I don't mind seeing them paraded around, however, not at the cost of their consent and happiness, but hey that's show business.

In a nutshell; I like being bombarded at every corner by beautiful things.

I don't mind it at all.

Not in the slightest.

Simple as that.

Kill him.

Don't listen to these spineless "humanitarian" people who want to slap him on the wrist. They are a part of the problem and their weakness to shy away from the natural order to administer justice that is due for scum bags like this, is in itself, a kind of violence. Get out of the way.

Posted in: Disney buys Lucasfilm; new 'Star Wars' film in 2015 See in context

Not really. Last time we got a Star Wars movie starting with 20th century Fox was the prequel trilogy and we all know how that turned out.

While I agree the prequels were a let down, that has nothing to do with the fact that a Star Wars movie beginning without the 20th Century Fox fanfare will be just weird.

Hindsight is always 20/20. That being said he does look like a sleazy yakuza villain in one of those bad (great) Toei gangster/sukeban exploitation films from the 70's.

You know if you don't want the child give her up for adoption their are plenty of men and women, wives and husbands who are so desperate in the their want to be a mother or father yet are incapable of having one of their that will gladly raise her, feed her, love her and give her a future (you know, like REAL HUMAN BEINGS DO)

If the babies dead (still-born, S.I.D.S, what have you) and you absolutely have to dispose of the corpse without letting those pesky authorities know about it. BURY IT. Give it some sense of dignity, don't throw it in the goddamn trashcan!

Thousands of people shoot themselves in the head every day. Now that they've seen one on TV all of a sudden everyone loses their minds with outrage because they accidentally saw it.

Reality check for the plebeians:

1 - Grow a spine.

2 - Get your priorities straight.

Posted in: Panetta: New Asia focus not aimed to contain China See in context

Could someone really say that without giggling?

There is a side to a nuclear arsenal that is often overlooked. That is that a nuclear arsenal can prevent the escalation of a massive conventional conflict. You remember reading about World War II right? Yeah, one like that. It's not perfect, or even wise; but it is what has happened. We (U.S.) having not had our very own country obliterated during the war, unlike European and Asian countries, had been graced with economic and industrial advantage and we also held all the cards (the nuclear ones). This gave us power to essentially dictate world policy and to have the world (excluding the soviet block) to serve our interests, namely, free-market capitalism. "Stability" in a region is another word for the maintaining of the super-powers interests in that particular region.

Anyway, I've gone off track a bit here, sorry, back to the point; that is that the threat of Nuclear annihilation can and has prevented full-scale conventional warfare. (The Cold War never became a "hot war" for instance). Conventional warfare (and warfare of any kind come to think of it) is a real messy affair, obviously, any one can see that this Iraq and Afghanistan business has been a real nightmare for the people in those countries and the soldiers involved. Korea was a mess. Vietnam was a mess, Douglass MacArthur said "Don't get involved in a land war in Indochina" and he was right. Of course Nixon (naturally) wanted to drop nukes in Vietnam because the conventional war had gotten completely out of hand. (thankfully that never happened because there would have been NO redemption for the general character of the U.S and it's citizens.) So it's a two-sided sword in terms of "peace-keeping" but that's just how it is. Like I said these kinds of weapons do play a serious role in terms of "stabilizing" (keeping the interst serving systems in-line) and preventing the kind of warfare that is so much more devastating and economically draining than the, no doubt, equally horrifying alternative.

Your are evil or violent because of who you are... Nothing to do with religion

Quran (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."

Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Quran (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"

I don't see anything reprehensible here. Do you?

I remember when Legion (Prof. X's son) went back in time to kill Magneto before he became his father's arch nemesis, it was a time when they were allies before X-Men. Xavier threw himself in front of Magneto to save his life and Legion ended up killing his own father, thus creating this massive paradox that caused an alternate future to suddenly exist. It was called the Age of Apocalypse.
