For a long time, I’ve dreamt of being president. The kind of president who could really make South Africa great again, and do so by not being a bloated windbag who looks like he has a squirrel tale for a toupee. And I’ve got plans. Such glorious plans for the next elections. Here’s the thing: I’ll most likely go mad with power and use state funds to build our very own Jaeger, Rugby P-Klap, but at least I’ll be honest about it as I Tombstone Pile-drive the economy into the ground.

HAAAAAAAARRRRRUUUUUUUUUU! Vote for me!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Umar

    Was there any time announced when the Division’s Client can be pre-loaded?

    • Spathi

      The 16th I believe

      • Umar

        Hopefully it’s up by the time I leave for work so I can queue that sucka.

  • miaau

    Do we need a Bad Boys 3? Not sure we do.

    • Hammersteyn

      Amen

    • GooseZA

      Nope.

    • Captain JJ ‘saurus

      Agreed.
      These days original stories are so rare, they’d rather mess up the old ones.

      • Hammersteyn

        They even ran out of books, hence reboots

        • miaau

          There are many great Sci-Fi and fantasy books out there that would make some great movies that have been ignored for various reasons, some because the stories are simply too big (LOTR big, say) or simply because there is no perceived audience for it.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            If you enjoy sci-fi & you haven’t watched The Expanse, you should.

          • Pariah

            I got bored halfway through the first episode. My gf is loving it though.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            It probably helps I’ve read, and enjoyed, the first few books.

          • Pariah

            LOTR wasn’t mainstream until the movies. Same goes for Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. Most people who are fans and are the audience didn’t touch the books until the movies came out.

            There’s plenty room for some Sparhawk movies.

          • miaau

            Sparhawk? A great character, but the stories were good, not great in my opinion.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            The David Edding’s character? When I read those books the first thing I thought was… this is exactly the same story as The Belgariad.

          • miaau

            It is and it was, yes. But Sparhawk was a cooler character. And the belgiarad story was more “children” focused, I thought.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Yeah he’s probably my favourite Eddings character. But it gets worse when you read the Tamuli and realise… this is exactly the same as the Mallorean hehe.

            I find them all kinda kiddie though – everyone’s always so super competent and the bestest of the bestest – I find that annoying after a while, because it makes everything so easy.

      • miaau

        Or make a movie like Eragorn. I did not think it bad at all, but it tanked so badly the two follow ups were cancelled. I still fail to see why it tanked so badly. It was not Shakespeare, but it was a good enough movie, was fun.

        Not like, say, The Last Air Bender live action movie. Um. Um. So, no Earth and Fire stories, then?

        Hmm, did I just say something in defence of the big studio execs making the decisions on which movies to greenlight? Also, why not a greenlight system for movies, like on Steam with games?

        • Captain JJ ‘saurus

          I actually never watched Eragon, but it didn’t seem that bad from what I saw.
          There is a movie side of Steam, and there are indie movies on there of which some are really good. I’ve actually supported two myself already.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Don’t watch it. It ends on a cliffhanger, and there is no sequel in sight (enjoyable movie though)

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            If there’s no sequel does that mean the… era’s gone?

          • Pariah

            That was painful, but funny XD

    • Umar

      Nope..I’m happy just re-watching this scene over and over again.

      • Hammersteyn

        XD classic

        • Umar

          Poor Reggie, the tall Ludacris looking mother F***er.

      • GooseZA

        Damn that was funny.

        • Umar

          Favorite scene. That’s taking dad to a whole new level.

      • Jonah Cash

        That is going to be me when my daughters first boyfriend comes around. Will scare him so that he tells all the other boys in her school to stay the hell away from the crazy dude!! Hahahaha

      • Commander Admiral Chief

        As soon as my daughter reaches dating age, this is what I’m going to do.

        EVERY
        SINGLE
        TIME

        • Umar

          EVERY TIME. I’m gonna be this dad lol

      • Pariah

        Love it so much 😀

        Only saw this this morning, and its already made my day better. 😀

  • Hammersteyn
    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

      Holy smokes!! That was an awesome movie!!

      • Hammersteyn

        I couldn’t tear my eyes away.

        • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

          Me neither, it was just too good…

  • Hammersteyn

    Daniel Plainview could make South Africa great again

  • Life sucks sometimes. That is all
