Id imagine ray bradbury's future would be more contrasting to 1984 to be honest

A world that completely and utterly abandoned books, thinking, controversy in the face of hollywood style media oversaturation. But most of all, we abandoned our humanity and the very concept of life

Thats what makes farenheit 451 so scary. Orwell imagined we would have knowledge taken away from us. Huxley imagined we would give it up in exchange of a new world. bradbury merely stated we just stopped caring.

I seriously need to read Farenheit again soon. Only reason I posted that image was I saw it somewhere recently and it seemed to give that guy's argument better than he could.

Of course this is a guy who's a fan of the Matrix, be surprised if he's read any of the 3 (Even if 1984 is... the least impactful I'd say, even if people seem to believe it's the most profound or whatever (The best thing to come out of 1984 was the film Brazil, but then I'm a weirdo).

I was sitting in uni one day, had an hour between classes, friends were off at some silly workshop thing so I sat in the café reading... fuck, I think it might have been The Postman Always Rings Twice (Yeah not the most intellectual book but it's pretty damn good) when some random girl I'd spoke to twice before came over and asked me why I read, completely puzzled me but I answered "for fun" then she got more puzzled than I was, she actually said and I quote "Why read a book when you can just watch a movie though?" Shockingly that girl only last another month at uni :P.

Then that also reminds me of the English class in high school, where we were each told to pick a book from a shortlist and write an essay of our own choice on it, I chose One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest since I had actually started reading it the week before, another guy in the class chose it and didn't even bother to touch the book but instead watched the film and TOOK QUOTES FROM THE FILM TO USE IN HIS ESSAY (Book's very, very different from the film by the way, book's from the first person view of a very mentally disturbed man so it's rather.... ugh, trippy in comparison to the straight laced drama of the movie). I passed, he failed and I got the untold joy of writing a paragraph based around big black orderlies raping patients, joy.

I'd say the most butchered book was The Count of Monte Cristo

I have never seen a movie that so utterly completely missed the point

I wont lie, there are a lot of disappointing people nowadays, but the species can still push forward. besides im willing to bet that girl was hot

Now that you mention it she was, but then she was also batshit crazy as it turned out (as in "Mass text all your friends a picture of you masturbating with a wine bottle because you're "annoyed you're not out fucking a guy tonight" crazy")

I think the worst adaption of a book might go to Oliver Twist being turned into the musical Oliver!

How much of that is because Oliver Twist is very possibly my favourite book of all time is up for dispute. I only read it because I had nothing else on holiday once, I expected it to be like the film (Yeah, hadn't really met Charles Dickens beyond films yet) and instead I got a very dark, very atmospheric story.

The book, the count of monte christo is the tale of how revenge cost a man everything he had including his family, love and happiness. to prove that revenge is never worth it

The movie, the count of monte christo, is the tale of how a dude chose revenge over walking away and living in peace, and ended up living a happy loving life anyways

what the fuck man

Your obviously not very bright yourself, since you understood what I was doing, yet at the same time it went right over your head.

And for you or whomever doesn't like what I have to say, I have two words for you. And they're not "Suck it".
I like how you answer as if you read and understood my post, yet still use "you're" wrong.

Okay, now you wanna get on that, its okay. I'm not trippin. Its a common grammar mistake, I know the difference between you're and your, but when writing it, sometimes I forget to put it like that. Happens to more people than just me, and its not just the you're/your complex, but there's other things in grammar too like that, that people get confused and mixed up even though they know better, like are/our, too/to; sometimes I still put "to" even though I KNOW I meant to put too to mean also, I go back and proof read and I'm like "aw fuck." It just happens sometimes. It doesn't mean I'm stupid.

Are you trying to say I'm an idiot or something? How do you know that english is even my native tounge? (Which it is, but I'm just saying.)

Okay. Let me clear up some things from the OP.

For the person saying stuff about me believing in the lizard people, none of that was stated in the OP

For people saying I think I'm better than everybody, none of that was stated in the OP

For people saying I'm above everybody, none of that was stated in the OP.

What was stated in the OP, however, was thought provoking information. The reason I recommend The Matrix is because we are living in it. The world is controlled by this monetary society and the people at the top (with the most money)

Someone said fuck stupid people, let the cream rise to the top. Even poor people can't make it if they put their mind to it. While this may be true and possible, the reality of it is, that its not probable, when you're in the slums your not meant to get out. That's why its the slums. Meanwhile the freemason's children and grandchildren get a million mile head start in life than you. How can you catch up to that? The weathy stay weathy and the poor stay poor. All I was saying in the OP is that people should stop and think for a minute, similar to "stopping to smell the roses" except in this case it is a stop to look at the world around you and what's happening. And its not good.


We have no real problems in europe and north america??? Are you fucking serious?? :

I don't know if it is that they use God as an excuse (and believe me I'm not trying to turn this into any sort of religious conversation) but there are still QUESTIONS in this universe that we don't know the answers to

Society today is fucked up. Everybody is only concerned with the newest movies out, the hottest accessories, the coolest music..etc....completely engulfed in pop culture. there are no more real thinkers anymore. It seemed like for a moment humanity and society was advancing from the 1500s to 1900s but nowadays it seems like we are getting dumber.


I could not imagine growing up as a teenager now a days. (Granted, I'm 21 so I just made it out alive.) Can you imagine getting shunned because of your dislike of Justin Bieber? Not a fan of Twilight? Don't wear skinny jeans and smedium t shirts? Outcasted. Your an outcast now mutherfucker, congradulations. You go against the grain. You have no friends, but who needs friends anyways? Especially when all they are going to do is drag you down, be annoying and sing stupid pop songs.

Meanwhile the government and the devil worshipers are taking every right you have from you right before your eyes, restricting civillization and the unwashed masses into dumbing down society and doing whatever they say out of fear. Freedom will be a word not spoken in the near future. They are posioning your foods and selling them to you at outragous prices. They put lead in your toys. You think this is accident??

I'm talking about high levels of arsenic in your apple juice, I'm talking bout aspartame in your sprite. Meat glue in your steaks. You probably don't even know what the fuck I'm saying right now...

Society is brainwashed and you all need help. I suggest by enlightening yourself ASAP. A few good references (you can google them):

-The Zeitgeist (watch the WHOLE movie for maximum elightenment)

-Alex Jones, his radio shows and websites prisionplanet.com and infowars.com

-VigilantCitizen.com (reveals a plethora of subliminals in the media and pop culture that goes unnoiticed everyday by you, unwashed masses )

-MK Ultra (a covert, illegal human research experiment for "behavioral modification" (in other words, brainwashing!) Conducted by none other than the CIA in the 1950's!


A few good movies for you to watch

The Matrix

The Matrix 2

The Matrix 3




Furthuremore, the question still remains. Why are the masses so unwashed and is there any hope left for society? I would like to see peoples stances on this very subject.

The question stems from my excitement to tell everybody I know that the new rover landed on mars, and that basically everybody I told didn't give a shit and were more wrapped up in their own lives or other unimportant issues not pertaining to life itself, to actual sit back and comprehend this information, that this is a breaktrough in space technology, and is a big step forward for humanity to answer QUESTIONS. Questions we do not know the answers of, like can Mars sustain life, or has it ever once sustain life, water on mars etc..and nobody really cared for these questions to be answered, and went about their life. Like they only would care if it found an alien or something, because aliens are on TV/movies and are soooooo cool.

Rant end.
