We live in a world where TV agents hunt out local news stories about murders and kidnappings that look like they could be juicy, contact the family, and get their cases on shows like Nancy Grace. And you want class and restraint?

Watching Nancy Grace trial-by-fury types of shows is one thing. But if you're the kind of person who says "Wait no, don't turn the channel, the next segment's gonna have that call where William Shatner's wife dies and he's panicking!", then you are at a whole other level (or whole nother level, if you will). All I'm saying is that I can't get into the head of a person who thinks that way.

Yeah, there are three kind of 'likes" that I don't get

Those people who like voyeuristic crime
People who liked the Human Centipede
And why women like candles so much

Well when it's video of someone being murdered, my curiosity gets the best of me. I usually regret it before I even see it, but I can't help it. However, I don't want to see a decent guy like Shatner crying over his dying wife. That's too much for me.

Also, Human Centipede is a Disney movie compared to A Serbian Film. uhoh.gif

But how do you feel about your woman being genetically programmed to arson, just because the candle smoke smells yummy?

Curiosity got the best of me back in high school when people were getting kidnapped by the taliban left and right and getting beheaded.

I saw the video of one of the guys getting beheaded and it totally fucked me up for a good couple of days.

It wasn't so much the visual (well, can't downplay the visual component at all, really), as it was the sounds of the guy choking on his own blood that really got to me. The initial scream from the pain to the progression of the gurgling from his choking on his own blood, and finally to the end where you can only hear the sound of air passing in and out of his trachea..

Ugh..

shudders.

Luxury sneakers. I'm not trying to make a definitive aesthetic judgment about them; just saying I don't get it.

Mrs. Piob is actually fairly meh about candles but I am quite the fire bug. No scent (ugh) but I like candle light.

Just looked that up. Uhhh...uhoh.gif

Given the context no amount of money could make me Google "A Serbian Film."
post #7241 of 12652
I looked it up few months back, just the synopsis of that movie is sick. Really sick.

is it a warning to other motorists not to smash into your car because your snot factory is aboard? because most people out there see a car with adults in it and are more likely to say, oh let me crush this one and take us all out in a fireball?

seems to me that the person who should care most about that baby is the one who doesn't need to see a sign to know that there's a baby on board.

i see quite a few of those cars with signs that are driven by the biggest dumbfuck on the road. perhaps people buy the "baby on board" sign as a plan B when the "please give me a lot of space - i'm a dumb shit-for-brains that doesn't know what the fuck he's doing" sign is sold out (or has too many words to fit in the rear window)

Sorry to go back to this but I thought it was relevant: I always thought it was a basic apology "should I swerve across the road, or generally do something dumb its because I have a screaming infant distracting me, not because I've drunk two litres of Jack Daniels. Your forgiveness and understanding is much appreciated!"

It makes sense that this is the origin, although now I believe they are an advert that the driver will have an unattractive vagina or child support cheques to pay.

Why does everyone like miran? He's one of the more awful posters we've had in awhile, I get bored just seeing that he has posted.

Also, what is this cissexual garbage about? Is it just a convoluted PC way of saying straight?

why do the youth keep the stickers on the lids of their hats?

Throwing a hot dog down a hallway?

Has this blight of signage spread to the UK?
