    Sad Things.

    Post by Teasealot on Fri Jan 22, 2010 3:20 pm

    Since we have a thread for the things that make us happy, it makes sense to have one that shows the things that make us sad too.

    What makes me sad is all the reboots and horrific manglings of well-established popular franchises, like Marvel's films, DC's Films, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Star Wars and the like. It seems the science fiction genre is particularly prone to sudden and unexplicable rewrites, changes and sometimes blatant mangling of the established canon.

    My inability to restrain myself from ordering pizza.

    I know I'm gonna feel guilty! I know I shouldn't be spending the money!

    But gah it's so delicious and I'm hungry...

    It's -20°C outside right now, with -35°C windchill warnings. This makes me very sad, because I have to leave my house today.

    EDIT: This makes me even sadder: http://xkcd.com/695/

    My laptop is out of action, had to switch to a G-notebook wifi, but my system is not accepting it well.(Blue-screened once.)Also, I won't be on Icechat for awhile.(I have a sister to watch daily, so I can't come running down stairs and getting on my main computer during the day.)

    Mecingo, there was a warning out about some PSP batteries developing a fault after 6-12 months... In Britain there was at least.
