When I was a kid, I believed carrots improved your eyesight, gum stuck to your ribs (if you swallowed it), and fish made you smart.
Remember the food chain, dude!
I hated carrots, so my eyesight was never too hot. (Sleeping in contact lenses for months at a time probably didn’t help.)
It took me until high school to realize that the chest pains I felt while growing up had nothing to do with the gum I swallowed in my youth. (Hubba Bubba goes nowhere near your ribs!)
And even though I liked my fish sticks as a kid, the idea became less attractive in my teens and further into adulthood. (Seafood stinks!)
"Fish heads, fish heads, eat 'em up, yum!"
So imagine my disappointment when I found out how good Omega-3 fish oils were for you, and my joy upon discovering they came in pill form!
The problem that remained was I kept forgetting to seek them out for purchase. Well forget them no more! I finally picked up a bottle, and I already believe I’m beginning to see results.
The biggest difference I’ve noticed is that I’m becoming psychic. I would regale you with all the details, but they seem to have escaped me for now.
Stay tuned as I report any further advancements of my mind!
While late night stumbling through the TripleDoubleU when I should be going to be bed before I have to go back to work (is this even a sentence?), I found this on Videogum (they’re my Hubba Bubba):
hudhudhudhudhudhud...hudhud......hudhud... ("Jaws" theme backwards)
And they found it through BuzzFeed and they found it threw Reddit… blah blah…
Basically, it has the potential to be a great time-killing/altered-state/show-offy game, I think.
You take a familiar film (a filmiliar, you might say) and tell it in reverse. A gag on the BuzzFeed states The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is about a man who is born and grows old and dies. Simple, yes… but effective.
The more elaborate samples on Reddit:
If you watch Fight Club backwards, you see Ed Norton turn from a crazy streetperson into a successful productive member of society.
If you watch American History X backwards, you see Ed Norton turn from a successful productive member of society into a crazy streetperson.
I would try one right now, but my brain’s on the fade out.
Oh wait… I got one.
If you watch the Muppet Movie backwards, Kermit and the Gang watch a movie, and then act it out in real life. Dumb.
