Re: The Prophecy

Because churches are boring. That's why I fall asleep when I talk about them. Thing is they're probably the place to go during the end of the world.

Re: The Prophecy

For you, maybe...

That's why I fall asleep when I talk about them.

You fall asleep while you are talking? So you bore yourself...
That is interesting.

Re: The Prophecy

I only bore myself when I talk about churches. That's why I don't talk about them much. Except when I'm trying to dis-convert people.

Re: The Prophecy

I see. Do you charge to "dis convert" as you say? Are you a "dis minister?" Because if you are not I am "dis interested."

Re: The Prophecy

No, I'm not paid to do it. I just think it's morally obligatory. & shut up about my use of language!

So you are like what, someone with a mission? Sort of a fanatic. What do you know of morally right and wrong? Who taught you?

Re: The Prophecy

I don't know! I'm stuck in limbo, I'm an inbetweener! It's like I'm good, but I'm evil, but I don't know...

Re: The Prophecy

Hmmmm? So you do not know. You are an in betweener, whatever that is. So when you are dis converting ( whatever that is ) do you fall asleep? After all you are talking about churches. How about when posting about churches? Also since you are not an expert by your own words why should anyone listen to you?

Limbo is a religious term, more Catholic than anything else. Why do you use it?

Re: The Prophecy

Limbo? Religious? No way! Well, anyway. I guess I'll have to figure it out. maybe M. Night Shyamalan can help. Y'know I have an alter ego. She's real nasty. So does that make me good? I don't know. I can't control her...

He can hardly write a decent story without 96 ghost writers to help him. An alter ego? Where does that come from?

Re: The Prophecy

Have you seen the movie Unbreakable? Bruce Willis & Sam L Jackson & some kid that may or may not have been Hayley Joel Osment.
That was an awesome one. The Last Airbender? Also brilliant. & was based on a manga cartoon.

Re: The Prophecy

Lets see... Sixth Sense, that was good. Signs, have you seen Signs? I can't think of any others I'll have to go get my issue of Empire.

Re: The Prophecy

Signs was awful, a really stupid movie. Yeah, water kills aliens. He was watching the wizard of oz when he stole that idea.

I knew it! I'm just like, 'corn? Are you serious? That's the biggest cliche ever.' It's like an evil version of Field of Dreams.
Then what was his other good movie you saw?

Anyway, what was the other movie?

Unbreakable was good and so was Sixth Sense. After Signs I just gave up on him.

Re: The Prophecy

I probably only liked Unbreakable because it had super powers mentioned.
I thought it was pretty awesome how it turned out that Sam Jackson was a super villain.

Re: The Prophecy

That was the ridiculous part. If you put Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson in a room and  the light bulb burned out it is doubtful that even enlisting the aid of Tom Cruise that the three of them would be able to change it.

Re: The Prophecy

I liked it, cause I didn't see it coming. Like at the end of the Sixth Sense. Didn't see that coming either. That's what makes M. Night's movies good. It's like this big A bomb at the end. Things that should've been obvious, but weren't until it was too late. 
How was it ridiculous? He had a motive & some strange logic to what he was doing.
