Sounds like "The Martian" on Earth.


But could be fun, I suppose.

By the way, in 2008 Algore said the entire polar ice cap would be gone by 2013, so all they'd have to do is send a ship to pick this guy up.

It's not fun. It's a brutal survival film.

reply

The whole point of brutal survival films is to provide entertainment for people sitting safely and comfortably in a theater, or their living rooms, experiencing the adventure vicariously. Such an experience is fun.

reply

Maybe that's your point but maybe other people feel differently.

reply

They feel different. If they felt differently, they'd be using faculties other than their minds to feel. Because, you see, it's a predicate adjective, not an adverb.

Those other people you mentioned who don't derive enjoyment from the vicarious adventure of watching a film are certainly odd, and probably very rare. They probably suffer from some sort of mental disorder.

reply

Hey everybody! It's another one of those assholes who likes to think if someone doesn't think and feel as they do that they're mentally ill.

What an enlightened new age we live in. You may be great at English syntax but you suck as a human being.

You are an angry little semi-literate man!

reply

At least I'm not calling other people mentally ill for not seeing the world like I do. Does that make it easy to live with your own opinions? Do you believe these opinions should be held up as facts?
