Yeah, that sums up everything pretty nicely!

I....this thread....I'm speechless.

Look, I like TDK, but it not the creation of everything, the cure for cancer, and not even the best movie of all times. It's just a movie, it did not influence the election one bit. Nor is TDK anything close to woodstock. It's a movie, not a movement, nor a defining moment of inspiration and change among an entire generation.

It's sad, but I think I actually like TDK less and less the more I read stuff like this on the Hype. It's ****ing everywhere! Go into the funny thread pics and we get those awful lolbats pics... Go into a thread about the creation of the universe and man's greatest accomplishments and see a pic of Batman headlocking Joker as Budda rides a triceratops in the background.

Not even the political section is safe anymore!!! I'm beginning to freak out now guys when I close my eyes I see Batman...The caped crusader is everywhere!!! It's like crushing Batman into a syringe and injecting him straight into your eyeball while someone kicks your nuts repeatedly.

Is no one else concerned about how detailed that description is?

Actually I just remember hearing the 'injecting straight into your eye' part from something else, want to think it was a TV show....maybe a movie. So drug addict no. Kicking in the balls part was all me, so subconcious masochist...possibly /puts knives and leather choker away.
