rickycal78: Yeah, those weren't really men. The ones in those photos were former men that's had their ballsack lopped off by crazy wives. I don't care how much you love your significant other or wife, if you're camping out to get in to see Twilight as early as possible, you have lost the right to call yourself a man.


See man this is why I mess with you. You are literally so scared of talking to a woman you haven't farked in 5 years, but you dog these dudes.

900RR: PYROY: They had a hockey game last night and it was a little crazy. The Kings fans were out here yelling 'Twilight fans suck!'"

Personally, I believe sports fans are just as gay as twilight fans, but they're also typically fatter, dumber, louder and more useless. I also think the reason the terrorists haven't bombed any major American sporting event is because they realize it would only make us a better nation.

Bingo. +1

Guess what, sports fans: you're nerds too. Suck it up, football fanatics and baseball buffs. You're just as bad as, if not worse than, any Star Trek, Star Wars, or Twilight fan. You're jersey-wearing, game-watching, collectible-buying starstruck fanboys and fangirls, gathering with your friends to celebrate what you love. You'll wait in line for hours for tickets, wear the jerseys of your favorite players (essentially another form of cosplay, only it's more socially acceptable, for some unfortunate reason), you'll throw parties on game nights...you do it all, and yet you have the brass cajones to consider all of that that "normal" and "real" compared to sci-fi/fantasy fandom. Real? NORMAL?!? Please, watch any of these dumbass games and consider how much these self-important, juiced-up jerk-offs get paid way too much to run around a field or court with a ball or another item in their hands and tell me again how normal and real it all is.

Actually, when you really stop to think about it, sports fans are even bigger nerds than sci-fi/fantasy fans, because the vast majority of the latter only do their costuming or fan-related stuff at events that encourage it. Sports fans, however, will go around with their team logo ties, team jackets, the aforementioned jerseys, to normal and everyday places! With a few shocking and disturbing exceptions (see the movie Trekkies if you wanna know what I mean), you don't see nearly as many Star Trek fans running around the grocery store in Klingon or Romulan costumes, and you don't see any guys stalking the malls dressed like Edward Cullen. Well, actually you do, but they're just being emo.

So, these Twi-hards hanging out waiting for this movie are no different, no better or worse than the sports fans who tailgate next to stadiums before a big game starts. It's the same basic behavior but for a different event and venue.

The scene with her sitting on the picnic table in the first movie is one of my favorite images of the first three films. "The producers of Twilight would like to remind you that breasts exist. The Breast Council, in collaboration with Imprint Films, encourages you to have or look at breasts. In short, breasts, Kevin, breasts." The Rifftrax for the Twilight movies are hilarious, check them out.

I'm Team Jessica, Alice, and the Volturi's hot Italian secretary.

FrancoFile: Porous Horace: So much fail, from Twilight fans to people who make "factual" statements about imaginary things like vampires. "Vampires don't sparkle in the sunlight" indeed.

Vampires are factual things, in that they are significant elements of both folklore and modern popular culture. They have a number of common characteristics or tropes. Twilight violates those tropes, but not to advance a plot point or to make a comment about literature and popular culture. It does so willy-nilly, 'just because'.

/Twilight is crap
//So is 99% of every other vampire, werewolf, or zombie produce from the last 40 years
///Most fans of horror are solipsistic, masochistic, or have underdeveloped affect.


You're annoying

Loomy: /Props to him for taking his daughter; if it wasn't this, it'd be some other tweeny BS, and he knows it, but does good by her anyway.


Yeah if my wife or 16 year old daughter asked me to come camping with them for this I'd think they lost their goddamn minds. If my 11 year old wanted to do this, I probably would. Daddy would also score some Kings tickets though. If Daddy is camped in front of a hockey rink, he's seeing hockey at some point.

/cheaper than Disneyland by far I'm sure

Let's not forget the fact that fantasy sports leagues are essentially pen-and-paper RPGs but without things like swords and axes.
