Why, this thread has gone to Hell!

Welcome to Webderland, Legion. Stop possessing Hathor and enjoy the boards.

Ooooo. What time? Midnight, duh. I'm bringing the kerosene. I couldn't find a virgin, but I did pick up a $10 hooker and she's in the trunk right now. Is she black? If so, all the better for me. Being a bigot and all, I could kill a couple of birds with one stone if she was black. Ummm...Can anyone...

WHAT?! NO PDA??? FEMI-NAZI!!! You and Rush Limbaugh both like that word. Pretty hilarious! Gee, a liberal who when you scratch the surface is a prude disgusted by a man and a woman enjoying each other's company, How do you know Legion is a man? I thought he was a collective pandemonic entity. Is se...

Take that $20 and get a hotel room. This is a public forum.

Have you read the eponymous (to you) William Peter Blatty novel? What did you think? I thought it was a worthy successor to The Exorcist, and the movie, which should have been II but was made as III, was pretty damn scary.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

It's Will Ferrell. What's with you guys and spelling people's names wrong? :wink: Anyway, Will would be a bit over the top, and Jim Carrey... what's weird is that was my first thought too. I hope they don't go that way.

Hey Legion, I got a question for ya-- if Jesus were here, could he move you off this board and into a herd of swine, and then send you down a mountain into the sea?

Rick-- If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times... Stop sneaking into my house and taking pictures of my cats in their underwear. Next time I'm getting that restraining order.

I'm going to ask the unpopular question now: is it wrong to come up with a reading of this story where Leona kills Jeffty/ purposely contributes to his death? I know Harlan says that's not what happened, in no uncertain terms, but before I knew that, I thought she had. Here's why: 1. Donny says, "So...

I agree with Piretta’s assessment: SIDNEY is damaged goods. Piretta is just a zealot. Piretta is just plain insane, twisted by her own jaded pursuit of thrills. Yes, Sidney is screwed in the head, as a result of being in a terrible war. Sure, Sidney latches onto Piretta and creates an elaborate fan...

Jan: "Sublimate" has a similar meaning to "suppress": to modify the natural expression of (a primitive, instinctual impulse) in a socially acceptable manner. Thus, Harlan used it correctly. Is the Sidney Carton of this story making a heroic sacrifice for another's happiness? Or i...

Oh, Cindy. Your post, evidencing no close reading of the thread and no room for nuanced response to the essay, hardly bears reply. All I will say is this-- criticism from fans is not mean and shouldn't be considered nettlesome. We should be allowed to discuss our dislike of a piece of writing withou...

Please re-read the first few paragraphs of "Valerie," where Harlan makes a valiant attempt to particularize the situation so that no one could assume this to be a universal parable about women. I think most of us are agreed on that point, if not all of us. Also, please note the paragraph where Harl...

Paula: Harlan did admit his true feelings for Valerie in the piece: "In a way, I believe I was in love with Valerie." Even though his relationship with her was composed mostly of a series of casual hook-ups, it clearly meant a lot more than that to him. In this case, love wasn't nothin' b...

That was simply the moment in my life when I felt most betrayed, used, hurt and weak. The anger isn't about the act itself. It's more along the lines of "How could I be so fucking blind?" Someone hit a soft spot, and I suddenly realized I wasn't as tough or as savvy as I thought. I unders...
