There is a drinking game associated with Withnail and I. The game consists of keeping up, drink for drink, with each alcoholic substance consumed by Withnail over the course of the film. All…

Look, these people, they’re fucking retarded. Rape can’t cause pregnancy? Breast milk cures homosexuality? I caused a hurricane by challenging creationism? Who can possibly take these people seriously anymore?
It used to be Republicans didn’t believe in global warming or evolution. That was bad enough. Now they don’t even believe in egg + sperm = baby. Where does Todd Akin think babies come from? Does he think there are separate storks for people who were raped and people who weren’t?
Hey look at me! I’m the rape stork. I drop off all my babies directly at the orphanage.
He’s a fucking idiot. Just a plain fucking idiot. I’m sorry - I don’t say that word very often - but it happens to fit in this case. He’s just a fucking idiot.

Miss Nocturne, of dreams so few, Would cry, ere should her eyes bedew, And drink caffeine the whole night through, In order to sleep not.
And yet the blush of morning came, And she could not the songbirds blame, For bringing forth the rising flame,
Whereon night was forgot.
But t’was with sirens all alarmed, That shadows by the light were harmed, And soon after, day-wakers charmed, Against Madame to plot.
Those mortals thus diurnal, Trapped by natures wheel eternal, A’nights disturbed by sounds infernal, Demanded she be shot.
Our heroine o’nocturnal fame, Was acquainted thus with shame, And shed her most infamous name, So too, her coffee pot.
And thus it was with drooping eyes, Berobed in a duvet disguise, Destined to somnabulise: Madame Coquelicot.*
*As I am not acquainted with the harvesting of opiates, I cannot be sure if Coquelicot poppies yield proper opium; also, the rhyme relies on ironic abuse of French pronunciation rules, such as might be forgotten during an opium high, or severe knackeredness.
He had heard about talking to the plants in the early seventies, on Radio Four, and thought it an excellent idea. Although talking is perhaps the wrong word for what Crowley did.
What he did was put the fear of God into them. More precisely, the fear of Crowley.
In addition to which, every couple of months Crowley would pick out a plant that was growing too slowly, or succumbing to leaf-wilt or browning, or just didn’t look quite as good as the others, and he would carry it around to all the other plants. “Say goodbye to your friend,” he’d say to them. “He just couldn’t cut it…”
Then he would leave the flat with the offending plant, and return an hour or so later with a large, empty flower pot, which he would leave somewhere conspicuously around the flat.
The plants were the most luxurious, verdant, and beautiful in London.
Okay so I’m going to try and not be annoying about character speculations but I am curious as to which characters will be crossed over from MCU into this new show? Especially if Sharon Carter and other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are still going to be in Cap 2 like all the rumors are saying.
And like, are they going to be able to get Samuel Jackson on this thing full time? And they definitely won’t be able to get Cobie because of HIMYM. And those are both pretty necessary characters.
I wonder if they’ll recast Maria.
if they’re going to recast maria i’m putting my vote in right now for morena baccarin okay cool
maybe it can be the Amazing Adventures of Sitwell and Galaga Guy
in all my life, I have never encountered such an astounding act of trolling as the time I spent an hour and a half downloading what I thought was a Good Omens fanmix and then discovering that it was a Best of Queen album.
yeah but that’s not the point. no one drives three hours away for just for kicks every other day. the point is when you do save up and go away for a weekend or holiday, in a place like, say, australia you can only afford to get to the next state, in europe you could go to a whole different country for a similar cost (dont quote me) and same travel time. i mean, if i drove to the capital city in the next state, that distance would be more than driving from cardiff to london then edinburgh.
the point is, the possibility is there. no one is implying every day of the week lands you in a different country.
