I just went through an equivalent of a lobotomy.
"I freaking love making out with people—it's just that it's got to be someone who's just one-upped me in a wits' battle first."
And for the one-upper (as a man) it would have to be a woman he just one-upped? So in his case, he would still have to be "physical first" type, because he has to have *something* high to aim for, right?
Also, as far as I'm concerned, there is only one good getaway location in Southern California: Los Angeles.
Sounds exhausting. I too would rather have a bowl of soup instead.
@stuffisthings Yeah, once MP opened their mouths about this, EM got their way. Not taking the money at this point would be the same as donating it to them.
"They actually confronted me and told me that they think we will never be truly happy because people from the North and people from the South will never get along"
Well, at least he's not black! Wait, bigotry is the problem with the South... I'm confused now. Your man is from Bama, yet it's you parents who are the hicks. I'll be damned. We learn something ever day!
@stuffisthings At the very minimum, I would expect choirs of Communist Youth with blood-red umbrellas like the ones over the letter "t" singing revolutionary songs at each Citi Bike station. *Sell* your apartment? Hahaha... all your apartment are belong to the people!
@mothra "divided very clearly by gender"
I'll give you one thing: once you take the brains out of the picture, the genitals do clearly stand out! I guess when I think of "divisive" I think more along the socio-political and otherwise intellectual lines. It didn't occur to me that a move can be considered to be the most divisive of the year by being too masculine!
"It’s hard to find stateside"
If you are not smart enough to figure out how to watch "European" TV (well, at least UK, as it's almost all available on the net) from US, you are probably not smart enough to enjoy it.
That said, this is a great article. All these shows are great, and superior to US network shows for the stated reasons. I'd just add that US has one good thing that Europe doesn't: HBO. But why should it? One HBO is enough.
"Man of Steel—one of the year’s most divisive films"
The main reason these movies suck is because they are purposely made to not divide - so that they can attract the widest possible audiences (to recoup all the money spent on them). Giving them this much thought is bad enough, but to call one of these movies "one of the year’s most divisive films" is just... c'mon.
