Today, I realized I've been confusing scenes from The Lord of the Rings with American history. FML

One does not simply confuse real life with Lord of the Rings.

If only our history was as cool as LOTR's...


OP, please tell me you at least read the books...If you did, I can still respect you.

And so the British king proclaimed, "one ring to rule them all." and George washington said, "my precious"

I have so much faith in humanity

Then Abe Lincoln simple walked into Mordor.

Lol WIN! I wish they were interchangeable.

Ah, like when Cornwallis surrendered to Washington at the Battle of Helm's Deep.

And then Kennedy defeated Hitler in the Mines of Moria.

One does not simply walk into mordor!

Sometimes I forget that it was George Washington that beat the British not Gandalf.

If only our history was as cool as LOTR's...

I'm sorry to come across harsh, but this is kinda stupid OP. You're mind must have been dazing or something, you're life will still go on and nothing will change after this incident.

Confusing LOTR with LOTD is also pure stupidity.

Before a Grammar Nazi stalks my comment... :P Your*

You just stole my comment :p

"The declaration of independence must be taken to the fires of mount st helen and cast into the abyss from whence it came."

wud is an grammair Nazi?

30 - A little off topic, but necessary. Its Mt. St. Helens. I don't mean the capitals, I mean the "s" on the end. Just a minor detail.

This will probaby get like 10,000 thumbs down but here it goes. One does not simply defeat the British

Very similar aren't they?

One does not simply confuse real life with Lord of the Rings.

Unless lord of the rings is their life....

I used to study American History until I took 3 arrows to the chest

One does not simply comment "one does not simply" anymore.

One does not simply fail at noticing 44's epic reference...

Why does Sean Bean have to die in everything?!

82-We'll find out in Season 2

Ahh I can't wait!

I see what u did there

83- your persons gonna die too :)

A little *spoiler alert* would have been nice 116, it's a good thing I've already finished the series.

This is what I get for trusting Filch from Harry Potter

One can confuse it when they don't have a grasp of reality. And when one has no life

It's quite easy to do tho. But maybe thats cause I'm a complete dork, who is sorta Lord of the Rings obsessed. But still.

Oh lawd. I was thinking the SAME thing.

If you study that... You will not pass!

*shall not pass, precious.

Your comment made we want to go retread those books. I think I'll go start. Thank you kind sir

Actually, in the book Gandalf says "cannot pass" :D

Abe Lincoln would be Treebeard. "Four hundred score and seven years ago, hoooooooooooom hmmmmmmmmmmm..."

Only in America. I now know why other people call us so dumb. I have no faith in my own country any more. >.

Some of u Americans might be dumb but a lot of u American guys are really cute ;)

Ah, yes, the United Sates. There is an evil there that does not sleep...and the great Eye sees all.

And that's the problem with America. Americans no longer have faith in their country

Every day I get asked if I am; German, Australian, Russian, Irish, Italian, or French. I'm English. I am disappoint America...

Ok 5 chill out its an fml

There are some idiots in this country. Every country has its idiots.

39- do you get asked if you're from London? I get that "are you from..." question a lot here too but I hate the London one. I don't ask all Americans "Are you from New York?".

66- It's just that the level of idiocy in America is -sadly- elevated beyond measurable proportions.

25 ... you must not be in the same part of the states as i am.

Red Foreman, anyone?

If you don't like America, no one is forcing you to stay. Every country has their idiots, Americans are just a bit more vocal.

Actually #125, some people are forced to be here. When I moved to Australia a few years back, the one-way ticket was over $2000. Then when I moved back, it was even more expensive, and that was BEFORE the economy went to shit. I'm sure it costs a lot more now.


in my opinion.. theres a correlation to the amount of.. erm... certain religious folk.. in this country and the amount of stupidity..... and on a happier note.. "the hobbits are going to isengard.. WHAT DID HE SAY?!" *finger wag* :)

Only in America are people so insecure about their own intelligence that they must insult one another over humorous slip-ups.

Our idiots may be the dumbest in some cases but our geniuses are among the brightest

Even though LOTR was written by a Brit.

How do you manage to do that?

this is why people think america is a country full of idiots.

One of the reasons...just one.

They don't think; they know.

@98: Yeah. Simply by realizing the differences between American history and LotR, the OP has elevated himself to roughly the 60th percentile* in America. *Figure is a statistic. Usual rules for statistics apply.

You mean to tell me that George Washington wasn't at Helms Deep?

Who needs history? Make your own up!

Already been done, they're called American history textbooks

As an American, I propose a slow clap for you. *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap clap clap* *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP*

I don't want to live on this planet anymore
