A Clockwork Blueberry
Apparently some fans of an immersive blockbuster 3-D movie are having trouble stepping out of the pool when the film ends:
On the fan forum site “Avatar Forums,” a topic thread entitled “Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible,” has received more than 1,000 posts from people experiencing depression and fans trying to help them cope. The topic became so popular last month that forum administrator Philippe Baghdassarian had to create a second thread so people could continue to post their confused feelings about the movie…
Other fans have expressed feelings of disgust with the human race and disengagement with reality.
Well, that’s pretty much our adult life. Without the glasses.

Oh, fuck, this is for real? I’ll drive them to a bridge to jump from for a discount.
@FlyingChainSaw: In fairness, I was disappointed when I couldn’t laugh myself to the ceiling after watching Mary Poppins. Then again, I was five.
@nojo: I am waiting for my credentials for the Avatar Forums mostly to whine about my failure to commit suicide by stuffing my head in an oven and discovering when my hair burned that it was an electric oven. You want to help me zoo Avatar fucktards?
Bah, lamers and amateurs. Real fanboys don’t complain their world isn’t real… they convince themselves that it is and make it so.
It’s not easy to Blue myself
Wanting to spend it as the color of Curaco
When I think it could be neater than being a human being
Or something much less meaner like that
It’s not easy to Blue myself
It seems you blend in with so many other insane things
And people tend to look you over ’cause you’re
Just standing out like a bad floater in the water
Or SF Convention
But Blue’s the color of AquaVelva
And Blue can be cool and friendly-like
And Blue can be big like an alien, or important
Blow up humans, or defend a big ass tree
When Blue is all there must be
It could make you wonder why, but I so WANNA BE SO
WANNA BE so BLUE and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful
And I think it’s what I want to be
@redmanlaw: Not explained is why this gentleman felt he needed to carry a gun at a movie theater.
I felt exactly the same way about The Wizard of Oz. When I was 5.
@Dodgerblue: As a rule, these punk ass boneheads (i.e., Plexico) don’t use holsters so the heat is subject to slippage. Also, some revolvers such as those made by Ruger have hammers that don’t directly touch the primer on a round, thereby greatly reducing the risk of discharge caused by dropping. One can safely carry such a revolver with the hammer down and rounds in all chambers. All three of my Rugers in .22, .38 and .357 have that safety feature.
@redmanlaw: What is the problem with holsters? Unsightly bulge?
@Dodgerblue: Not sufficiently “cool,” I’m sure.
@IanJ: Not gangsta enough. BTW, some magazines call in the waistband (IWB) w/o holster the “Mexican carry.”
