Weeping Fans Flood Theaters at The Fault in Stars Premiere

June 7, 2014, 7:35 a.m.

Movie theaters nationwide are facing major clean-up costs following last night’s premiere of the film, The Fault in Our Stars, based on the New York Times bestselling novel by John Green.   Moviegoers wept so much during the film that many theaters experienced water damage, and numerous multiplexes across the country were entirely flooded by tears.  In Orlando, Florida, groups of teenagers, who had flocked to the first showing at a local mall, had to be rescued in row boats, which were borrowed from a nearby sporting goods store.  “I am soooo devastated, but it was entirely worth it,” said Allison Tyler as she was helped into a boat, her chest heaving and her cheeks still wet with tears.  “I reached down to pick up my popcorn off the floor, and it had floated away,” recounted Tony Wilson outside a cinema in San Diego.  In Hollywood, director Josh Boone has hailed the flooding as an unfortunate yet necessary side effect of the artistic success of his movie, which stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as teenaged lovers who meet at their cancer support group.  Theater owners are not as pleased with the movie’s reception.  “I don’t know who this John Green guy is,” said Norman, Oklahoma, theater manager Bob Watkins, “but he had better hope that my insurance will cover this mess.” Many theaters will be closed for the remainder of the weekend while work crews mop up the surrounding areas, leading to a significant loss of income.  Author and popular internet celebrity John Green could not be reached for comment.

Hey, I'm sorry if this is super weird, but you're beautiful, and I wondered if you'd ever thought about doing any topless pics?

Thank you for your kind inquiry. If you do not mind, I will impart some gentle advice to guide you in further communications.

Weigh the probability. I am an author of books for young adults. Does it strike you as likely that I would go casting about in my public tumblr box for people to take photos of my chesticular bookends? Normally, I find questions about books. And while everyone likes a change now and again, there is such a thing as too much change. If you were to work the numbers,  what do you think the actual chances were that I was going to reply in the affirmative? Were they high? If they were, it seems within reason that you might have been in a similar condition. No. The chances were never good. So either you are an eternal optimist (and we certainly need optimists), or this was written with some other intent in mind.

I realize you didn’t come to me looking for advice on how to communicate, much in the same way that I did not come to you looking to have topless pictures taken—but here we are together. Let us make the most of it!

The key to any effective letter is this: know your audience! Everything stems from that critical piece of knowledge. You had a moment of self-awareness in the first part of your sentence. Pause there and reflect. Asking women you don’t know (or often those you do) if they want to take some topless pictures is almost a guarantee of weird. This is why Hallmark doesn’t make a “how about some topless pictures?” card. You hovered on the edge of wisdom, and you retreated. Do not retreat, my friend.

With that, I must offer my regrets. But I do not want to leave you without recourse. Have you heard of the author Nicolas Sparks? Perhaps you could make a similar inquiry to him? Or would that not be appropriate?

I will leave it up to your best judgement.

Yep… yep.

USB plugs have a visible USB logo on the top side. If you plug them into a horizontal USB outlet with that facing upward…it will always be the right way.

If it’s a vertical USB outlet…then you should call the manufacturer and tell them TO GET THEIR F*&$ING ACT TOGETHER!

Despite knowing about the logo trick, I still can’t get it right.  That may say something about me but I’m not sure what…..

“Less talk, more growling, baby.”
“I’m a guy.”
“Sassy. Lion.”

Hobbits Around the Globe

This gallery presents the covers of ‘the Hobbit’ from around the globe, arranged by the year of publication. In here no English or American editions are presented; only the covers of translations of ‘the Hobbit’ from all different countries are shown. This gallery is meant to grow (a lot) since we do not have all covers of all countries (yet). Tolkien books tend to get many editions (some countries publish ‘the Hobbit’ every year) and the cover changes over years. To keep an overview in this gallery we will always show as many covers as possible, to give a complete overview.

I MUST HAVE THEM ALL. Especially the Finish one, omg (Lohikäärmevuori).

dkjehbefaahdja!  I need these sooooo much.  EACH and EVERY ONE of them!
