    In my experience, there's no such thing as luck.

    I don't know how Femme meant it, but I don't bring up River Phoenix in the context of, these are comprable actors that both died. I bring it up because those were both actors that I think were hot. I mean, it's shallow, but they were both great looking guys to me. My reaction for both was not along of the lines of young actors that had a whole career ahead of them, more like, "they were too cute to die!"
    Shallow, yes. Embarrasing to admit to, yes.

    I think this may be my second favorite Bosh_Talk quote/post. My #1 is from a few years back, in the thread "[link=http://boards.theforce.net/chicago_il/b10152/17229694/p3]RE: Feature length fan film trilogy? We need help[/link]". It's weird to recall a single post from so long ago but it worked so well in the context of the thread, it's one of the funnier things I've ever read on these boards.

    The gist of the thread was YodaDaMax wanted to make a fan film, a huge production as it was described. Responses varied from supportive to highly critical, and about halfway through this six-page thread, out of nowhere, ConnekAnchi posted that s/he (sorry, I don't know) was working with YodaDaMax. Bosh_Talk's response:

    "This is getting out of hand...now there are two of them."

    It was like Nute Gunray was sitting right there. Out of context, it may seem only mildly amusing, but at the time something about that made me laugh for days.

    Bosh has adapted his paintball "spray 'n pray" method to online posting. He posts so much that one or two good posts are bound to slip through.

    Check back in 2012!

    ...and did you guys hear what that Fox News guy said on his radio show. I don't know why famous people dying has to be an opportunity for people to be really tacky.

    I guess they glossed over the section about he who has not sinned can cast the first stone.

    Considering that Heath Ledger (as far as I can tell) wasn't actually gay, he just played one in a movie, it's stupid to assault him for it. Jeremy Irons talked about how when he did Lolita a few years ago people attacked him for portraying a child molester. He mentioned that earlier in his career, no one condemned him for playing Hamlet, who is arguably a more vile character than Humbert Humbert.

    The Phelps family (aka, Westboro Baptist Church) doesn't even qualify as worth anyone's time. Unfortunately, they're ridiculously vocal and confrontational. YouTube may still have the BBC series from a year or two ago called "The Most Hated Family in America." It's pretty depressing, but also somewhat reassuring to see the pathetic nature of their lives.

    A friend of mine from school posted it on his Facebook page. He also writes for the school newspaper...if that tells you anything.

    I tend to agree with you, but they still piss me off. For me, it's like being an American and traveling abroad; I am not embarrassed to be American but I am constantly embarrassed by the actions of the other Americans around me. The Phelps family are even worse, claiming to be Christian when their actions clearly prove that they are not. They are sullying the image of something that I care about, and they need to stop.

    Were I a violent man, I can see how about 300 gallons of napalm would take care them. Well, their earthly existence, anyway. Of course, having broken 8 of the 10 Commandments* already, I could kill them and worship an idol and have the complete set. Do you think you get a set of dishes or maybe steak knives for that?
