Police in Ukraine are investigating the unexplained beheading of a judge and his family.

Unexplained? They were killed. I'd guess by criminals, seeing as how he was a judge... What's so unexplained?

Didn't Ramirez say that the immortals cannot have children?

Then immortal kids must come from mortal parents.

So apparently we have two people who haven't seen Highlander, which won the Academy Award for the best movie ever made.

jaylectricity: The beheaded people are dead. What am I missing?


Pretty much everything. The premise of the movie (there were no sequels) and the TV show (of which they did not make a movie based on) was over a set of "Immortals" that could heal from everything except a beheading - and then their power, knowledge, and everything they had accumulated over the centuries would go to the person that culled them in a painful and sparky process called a "quickening".

Nothing was ever done to define them, why them, why they were doing it, or even if they themselves knew.
 
2012-12-17 12:38:23 PM
yes, he's kidding

Highlander had immortals fighting for The Price!

This event is just evil shiat.

Up for bidding - A classic Chinese Statuette. It is in perfect condition and will only add value to a serious collector's inventory. Beware of fakes! Some of the other items in this marketplace are known fakes but the sellers are trying to sell them as originals! Know before you buy! This is an original, certified collectable and we have the heads of the previous owners to prove it. You must have 5 stars to bid. Pay Pal only.

Chinese Statuette only. The heads will be sold in a future action. 

/should be more misspellings and !

Never bring an antique collector to a knife collector.
 
2012-12-17 12:43:32 PM
Headless? check.
Heads missing? check.
Extensive Antiques? check.
Local lightening storm at time of death? check.

Probably they weren't even real family but just acquired those roles over the centuries and centuries of knowing each other. The time of the quickening draws near. There can be only one.

Thank you Captain Obvious. What is the joke? What is the reference? What was subby thinking would be funny. You think I think the submitter just got it wrong? No...there was a reason he/she chose those words.

Is it a movie? A book? A magazine? An old Chinese proverb? I was literally asking what it was that I was missing.
 
2012-12-17 12:46:16 PM
Judge has been one of the best satirists in the country over the last 20 years, so yeah, he does qualify as an immortal.

Immortals are exiles from planet Zeist. Duh. They're exiled to Earth to be reborn. That's where Immortals come from.

PS This sounds like a hired hit, and the heads were taken as evidence so the hitman can collect.


I used to do this but you wind up with drawers full of heads. What can you do with them? One time, I put them on the elevator at the mall and listen to the reaction they get when the fat chick whose biatching about Old Navy 'not havin' nuttin' in her sizes' starts to get on the elevator.

But you always have more than you can find uses for. So now, I just tell the hit man to make sure it gets in the news. And not some blog but a reputable source. Had this hit guy (Yelp: zero stars - will not work with again) put his successes on a blog his wife wrote. I mean her picture is right up there and she's discussing flower arrangement, raisin recipes and a murder of a guy who 'probably had it coming and was worth more than $5000 dead'.

So I tells them 'push 'em off a building or set fire to their car so the fire department has to respond.' That always gets the news. But if I don't read about it, you won't get paid.

This time of year, I take a bunch of heads over to the brother in law's house. I put on a gorilla mask and I play 'em like a xylophone. The kids love it and the oldsters think I'm Mel Brooks or Cid Caesar.
