First Post of the Year!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Well, everyone, we're looking forward to a new year full of happiness and fulfilments, right? And let's not forget: great, enriching, entertaining posts.

Thankfully, I got a great idea for my first post this year. It occurred to me that Mom was watching Starship Troopers on TV last night. We all know and love this movie, right? Remember the part when Private Ace (or whatever his name is) misthrows the knife and says: "Sir, why do we have to learn how to throw a knife when all you need to do is press a button... Sir." And then the Sergeant makes him put his hand on the wall and sticks it to it with the knife saying: "The enemy can't press the button if you disable his hand." And then comes the scene with the showers... So why did they cut the part with the knife and suddenly shifted to the shower room straight after Ace's comments? And what's this, they cut out the part with the arachnids tearing the guy apart? What the Hell?!?!?!

I really don't understand TV. I mean, they had this sign in the lower right corner:
So then why cut out the bloody scenes of the movie? I mean, those are the coolest parts. It's the same with Romanian TV. They keep from translating curse words even during the night-time movies. People lacking English knowledge still think that "fuck you!" means "du-te dracului!" I think this is plain stupid. If you rate it 'R'... then dammit, put in some 'R' content into it, don't leave out all the juice...
