Today, my father, who is going through a serious mid-life crisis, walked into my room, told me to "sit the fuck down," and spent the next two hours ranting about how the Lord of the Rings books prophesy the end of the world this December, and that Sauron is an analogy for "corrupt bankers." FML

Lmaoooo my comment is total shit. In fact, I'm not sure why I even commented. You'd think I'd keep the inane TXT language to actual text messages, right? Ah well, fuck my life; fuck it hard.

I thought 1 had a nervous breakdown... But if the Mods changed it, then right you are! I'm sure it did suck.

And as for the FML, I think that your dad may be on too something.. Or off his meds. You should argue back that Gandalf is the anti-Christ.

She not need to move, she is omnipresent. Which is why I like to play Dane Cook's Vicious Circle in the background while hoping she can hear it. :D

I would explain what the original comment was, but after reading it, a large group of my brain cells jumped off of a cliff an committed suicide. As a result, my memory is fucked and I am unable to recall the actual verbiage.


52-On behalf of all FMLers, I deeply apologize for your dissatisfaction with our recent performances.

We have been commenting mindlessly, completely forgetting that this whole time our sole purpose has been to entertain you.

I will make sure we all review our scripts to ensure that we minimize any firstgasms, and keep the creative juices flowing.

Once again, we apologize for our selfishness.

Very sincerely,

The FML Community

...just kidding. I actually agree with you.


Hopefully the haze of stupidity will lift soon.

It's 12.12.12? I thought it was Dec. 22 haha yeea it's bullshit. But does anyone know the correct date? Me and my sister are getting high on that day and are watching 2012

Then laugh at alll the dumb bitches freaking out.

The mayans didn't predict the world would end; instead that date is thought to be the begining of a new age (if that makes any sense). So its total bs people would think this would happen.

I think it goes like this:

1.One ring that rules them all (ring means money and power, belonging to finance industry)
2. Other rings exist, other kingdoms (other industries)
3. Sauron is greedy, in need of power and control, will do anything for it, will destroy everyone else in pursuit of it (pursuit of money and the result is a suffering economy)
4. Two little, insignificant dwarfs from a random area are the ones who succeed and destroy Sauron through will and determination, with the help of a few powerful friends (one of the 99%-ers, against the 1%)

I think this is what OP's dad was referring to. Time to call the Ents!!


101, if the Orcs symbolize Hilary Clinton, then that explains why the Egyptian protesters threw tomatoes and chanted "Monica" at her a couple of days ago. It all makes sense now.


But... The Empire uses solar power. *coughTIEs* it's those wasteful rebels who use fuel. So wasteful. All hail the Emperor! As to wookiees, who wants those loud hairy brutes shedding on our great empire? :p

But I heard Lord Vader wasn't good with money. And in this economy (the economy of the future) that makes you a bad politician. In fact you can even find ads talking about how he relocated all the rebel's enterprises to other planets, terminating thousands of jobs, only for a few space credits.

Must be one hell of a mid-life crisis if he has time to rant about the lord of the rings for two hours. You should probably go out to the bar or something to liven him up a little bit.

Yeah, I mean, my Mum's gone to uni and my Dad's got a three-legged terrier, that's pretty much the extent of their mid-life crises.
This guy sounds like he's been looking at "Literary Criticism for Conspiracy Theorists".

I just suggested the bar, but I didn't say alcohol was the answer, did I? I just suggested op take him somewhere fun as well to help him out of his funk. Read my comment again... Jeez. I know alcohol is never the answer to a mid-life crisis.
