Shortly after the Korean War, the son of then South Korean President Syngman Rhee was hired as a Life Magazine correspondent. The younger Rhee was a remarkably kind, gentle and considerate man, but he had one problem: He loved to drink and sometimes was gone on a bender for days. On one occasion, Rhee was missing for three days before someone at the magazine's office finally suggested they look for him. Other correspondents and even the police were involved in the search. Finally, about two weeks later, a policeman walked into a tavern, looked at the man slumped over the bar and cried, "Ah, Sweet Mr. Rhee of Life, at last I've found you."

Alty, you know what I can't wait for?

the day that they decide to REMAKE the originals.

You think Star Wars is immune to a series reboot? It would be an awful idea, but after Lucas kicks it, I bet our grandkids will watch a new A New Hope in theaters.

Justin Bieber as Luke Skywalker.

I called it first.

I will go right the fuck up a watertower.  You see if I fucking don't.

It's not like he has to act or anything.  It would be his "thrilling debut" into the Hollywood scene.

The strange thing is that they both had the same lead developers.  So I'm wondering if it was a time issue - writers never have enough time to go into the detail they like.

I thought they fired a bunch of their writers and canon people when they started Oblivion.

In the early 1900s, the president of America went to visit Russia. Of course, Russia was still ruled by the Czar back then, and the American President was warmly welcomed by the whole Russian royal household.
As the two leaders and their entourages were dining one day, in one of the huge dining rooms in the palace, the Americans were telling the Russians about some of the great things in their country. One of thetopics of conversaion was the Grand Canyon in Colorado. Of course, the American were quite boastful about this being the largest canyon in the world, when suddenly, from the head of the table, the Czar stood up,and made an announcement.
"In Russia," he said, "we have a canyon even bigger than your Grand Canyon!"
Now no-one was going to stand up and contradict the Czar, but of course no-one believed him either.
Finally, the American president stood up, and said "Okay. Let's see this canyon then."
So an expedition was organised. Of course, their destination was way out in the remote wilderness, and they only had horses to travel with, so the going was slow. But eventually, after several weeks gruellingjourney, they finally arrived at where the canyon was supposed to be.
But there wasn't one. Not even a little one.
And then it dawned on everyone - he had been using Czar chasm to make them look stupid.

Somebody please tell me this was never paid.

The man's father told them to go shit in their hats.
I hope they had a sense of humor.

It's like looking deep within yourself and saying, "I know who I am, world, and I am proudly beige."

That's amazing.  I saw a TED talk where a guy talked about this exact kind of thing being widespread in the future.  Except, essentially, he was embracing the change and talking about a way in which it could achieve "good things" if handled properly (for instance, promoting exercise by giving points whenever someone runs for so-and-so length of time).

That somehow, by ignoring the reality, it will just go away.
