Its always so amusing hearing a single person tell me how I could be doing things differently in regards to children and time management. I always get a chuckle.
Back that truck up, cowboy!

I'm not telling you how to raise your kids. What I am doing is pointing out the fact that you repeatedly told me that in no uncertain terms you WERE going to see Indy in the theater and this was in response to my arguing that Ironman was going to be a much better movie. Because you had argued the point so adamantly, I thought this was a done deal...until I read your post. What you do with your kids is your cross to bear--not mine--unless (unlikely) you were to ask for my advice.

You're not even at the stage where you're allowed to have an opinion yet.
You're right. I'm not allowed to vote with my wallet and say "fye" on that son-of-a-bitch Lucas and his "We'll fix it in the computer" attitude. In order to have a voice in this forum, I must first debase myself to a thumb-sucking whiner, decrying how I didn't get my money's worth out of the movie ticket when I knew I was pre-disposed to not liking the work in the first place.

Here, by your logic, you have single-handly dismissed the greatest premise of Capitalism, Freedom and Liberty by scoffing at my right to vote with my wallet and NOT see a film that I think is going to be sub-par, especially when the opinion that the movie is sub-par is shared with many of our mutual friends.

I don't need to see George's latest abortion to know that his level of filmmaking leaves much to be desired, and I don't have to pay him to dissent. The idea that I must pay to dissent is not un-like paying "protection" money in Old West to ensure that you had water and were not terrorized by desperadoes.

Someday you'll come to appreciate that its the amount of hours dedicated to sleep, and not the hours in which they occur.
I already have reached this point. I'm just decrying the fact that I'm up early and am by nature a night person.

Just so we're clear: It is your opinion that Ironman was going to be a much better movie.

No, you are! Once again I find you arguing a straw man of your own creation - ! - How counterproductive! Yes you can choose to not see the film, much like I choose not to watch Oliver Stone films. By all means, continue to do so! But why the fuck would I want to hear your subjective evaluation of something you've failed to subjectively evaluate? For the love of Christ Almighty try to comprehend the difference between opinion and assumption. And if you can't do it for him, do it for me?

I already have reached this point.
Odd that you'd continue to whine.

I whine because I like things the way I like them.

In order to have a VALID opinion of a movie - or, more to the point, for people to NOT consider you a total idiot - YOU FIRST HAVE TO ACTUALLY SEE IT.

Jesus fucking Christ, why is this so hard for you to understand??!
