British Bulldog! You were totally playing British Bulldog, the most dangerous sport this side of dodgeball.
@Anne Helen Petersen Actually, that would be Ethan Hawke, circa Reality Bites.
You, me, five bucks, good conversation. Right?
@metermaid I was just joking about how the reason I never went to med school was because I was petrified of puke! Seriously, if I'm even in the vicinity of puke I have a full-blown panic attack. I've been told that immersion therapy will help with the fear, but I don't think I'm brave enough for that yet...
Am I the only person alive who hates gifs? They make me kind of dizzy/annoyed.
Horns was pretty good too. Not as scary, but still super creepy.
Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill scared the pants off of me! He's Stephen King's son so he knows from creepy.
@dracula's ghost I never read that book but I did read one called After the Bomb which was frighteningly realistic YA book about what would happen in if a nuclear bomb was accidentally dropped on downtown LA. It included incredibly graphic descriptions of radiation sickness. I still have nightmares about this book. I had one about it last night in fact, where I couldn't decide if it would be better to die in the blast or survive. Still not sure of the answer to that though, but I think your dad might have had the right idea.
KD! Love this stuff, but all you people who add things to it, like hot dogs or beef, are crazy. KD should only be eaten in it's purest form. The only choice when making KD should be dry (with not all the powder mixed totally in) or soupy?
@OhMyGoshYouGuys After VC Andrews died, ghost writers took over the brand. You can see where the books start to go from carefully crafted incest insanity into boring retreads of incest insanity. For the record, that moment is Gates of Paradise book in the Heaven series. Everything after that book is crap. Well, crap compared to the original trash so I don't really know how that works on the larger scale of actual quality literature, but you get the idea.
I need to have that last paragraph tattooed in my brain.
Also, openly weeping at my desk. Thank you.
