"I like how cool you guys seem when you are disappointed by everything posted on this sit"
- Personally, I'm disappointed in that comment of yours.

Psyched's last comment was for the Iron Man 2 trailer. Like she cares what we do or say. Probably just another d*ck-hungry troll like october-midnight.

A little off topic, but still on apes:
The Monkey Banana and Water Spray Experiment
The experiment is real (scientific study cited below)
The experiment involved 5 monkeys (10 altogether, including replacements), a cage, a banana, a ladder and, an ice cold water hose.
The Experiment - Part 1
5 monkeys are locked in a cage, a banana was hung from the ceiling and a ladder was placed right underneath it.
As predicted, immediately, one of the monkeys would race towards the ladder, to grab the banana. However, as soon as he would start to climb, the researcher would spray the monkey with ice-cold water.
but here's the kicker - In addition, he would also spray the other four monkeys...
When a second monkey tried to climb the ladder, the researcher would, again, spray the monkey with ice-cold water, As well as the other four watching monkeys;
This was repeated again and again until they learned their lesson:
Climbing equals scary cold water for EVERYONE so No One Climbs the ladder.
The Experiment - Part 2
Once the 5 monkeys knew the drill, the researcher replaced one of the monkeys with a new inexperienced one. As predicted, the new monkey spots the banana, and goes for the ladder. BUT, the other four monkeys, knowing the drill, jumped on the new monkey and beat him up. The beat up new guy thus Learns- NO going for the ladder and No Banana Period- without even knowing why! and also without ever being sprayed with water!
These actions get repeated with 3 more times, with a new monkey each time and ASTONISHINGLY each new monkey - who had never received the cold-water Spray himself (and didn't even know anything about it), would Join the beating up of the New guy.
This is a classic example of Mob Mentality - bystanders and outsiders uninvolved with the fight - join in... Just Because.
When the researcher replaced a third monkey, the same thing happened; likewise for the fourth until, eventually, all the monkeys had been replaced and none of the original ones are left in the cage (that had been sprayed by water).
The Experiment - Part 3
Again, a new monkey was introduced into the cage. It ran toward the ladder only to get beaten up by the others. The monkey turns with a curious face asking "why do you beat me up when I try to get the banana?"
The other four monkeys stopped and looked at each other puzzled (None of them had been sprayed and so they really had no clue why the new guy can't get the banana) but it didnt matter, it was too late, the rules had been set. And So, although they didn't know WHY, they beat up the monkey just because" that's the way we do things around here".

Been on this site longer than both of you have, just find the both of you pretty funny and thought I'd let you know. Please continue.

I'd rather get raped by a can of sardines with a side of anchovies than watch this.

I'd rather f*ck shannon price's ass with my tongue and two fingers than watch this sh*t.

I'd rather get gangraped by the cast of The Facts of Life, with Nell Carter sitting on y face, than watch Rise of the Apes.

@Psyched - good stuff. Then you know there are plenty of positive moments here within the loving bosom of WP.
I'd rather be cavity searched with 12 feet of rusty, HIV-laden razor wire than watch this.
I'd rather have a black scorpion enema than watch this.
on April 11th, 2011 at 9:41:19 PM
Maybe I'd watch this.

I believe Kenny was/is implying that some of us, who shall forever remain nameless, are ape-like in thought processes and social behavior, as exhibited by our unfortunate response to Psyched (and genuine cretins like Che).
Of course, Kenny, you should know, I belabored to extract Bando from the very same situation, from the morass of his tangle with Blank, but do I get any credit? Nooooo.
But very clever of you tying the the story into the comments. That's far smarter than I would expect for a WP thread. Usually.
By the way, and by and by, you must be a psych/sociology major.

"I'd rather have a black scorpion enema than watch this."
That's nothing. Richard Gere...tell me if you've heard this one...

Psyched - You failed to remember that the majority of people on here are award-winning screenwriters and directors that do everything better than you...
on April 11th, 2011 at 9:59:45 PM
The monkey does look cool though.
But this movie is going to suck so hard. Don't matter if The Franco or Frida Pinto are in it, it's going to bomb big time.

"Psyched - You failed to remember that the majority of people on here are award-winning screenwriters and directors that do everything better than you..."
Dunno about you, super_sucker, but I could be a pretty good director, I think.
But not all of us, very few really, get the chance to have that kind of fun.
on April 11th, 2011 at 10:25:18 PM
This is what super_suck calls 'amateur film-making':
Yeah. Some sh*tty shaky shots of nothing set to a really sorry 'soundtrack'. And you have the nerve to lecture someone else on 'technique'? I thought I was actually going to see another Xenogenesis...lol.
Hell, son, I've filmed more compelling shots of my bowel movements.

Regarding the psych/sociology hunch, I'm not.
Also, I used to comment (much) more often on this website. Much to my dismay, Mr. Alex decided to ban me from these boards, discontent with my growing exasperation towards his lack of criteria to censor comments. It's his house, his rules. My exit became inevitable.
I've been using Kenny for a while now, as an alter ego to my previous alter ego. (It's a practical redundancy.)
The relative primitive behavior sometimes exhibited by some of the members used to be a big part of the fun around here. The difference, in my opinion, is that some were aware of that, and purposely having some healthy fun with it. Others were just... being primitive.
Not passing any judgment, though. Fun is fun, even when it involves apes throwing their own feces at each other.
The analogy serves this situation perfectly.

"My exit became inevitable."
You were expendable, and you just got exepnded?
Or, as Stephen King would say, Everything's Eventual.
God, I love that line.....ooh, look, shiny thing!
"The relative primitive behavior sometimes exhibited by some of the members used to be a big part of the fun around here."
My behooded friend, sex, eating and sh*tting are as primitve as you can get, and who would deny the pleasure of those activities?
on April 11th, 2011 at 10:35:34 PM
i before v if you're a dummy like me.
on April 11th, 2011 at 10:58:53 PM
"sex, eating and sh*tting are as primitve as you can get, and who would deny the pleasure of those activities"
- Precisely. All very pleasurable activities, in deed. In the same measure, all susceptible to judgment, depending of the surrounding cultural and situational aspects.
It's much like when people here engage in the occasional heated debates. Some people debate/sh*t just because they need to let some steam/sh*t out, unaware of the processes that were involved in building up the steam/feces and the consequent emanation of the constricted matter.
The others here are quite aware of those processes and have a wider angle over these debates. And they have fun with it too.
Thomas Gray was right when he said ignorance is a bliss.
Nonetheless, ridiculing pompous f*cks like TheGrittyNitty or WeThePeople, or mocking morons like COC or vindy will always be fun. Just primitive fun.
