If I had my way, I'd burn this building down  
It's already nearing the end of October. When did this happen?! *scratches head*

1. Do you have the guts to answer these questions and re-post as The Controversial Survey?
Absolutely. Bring it on, bb!

02. Would you do meth if it was legal?
No. Just because something is made legal doesn't mean I should do it. I know the effects it has on the body, so why would I subject myself to that?

03. Abortion: for or against it?
This is going to be the same kind of thing you've all heard thousands of times by others; pro-choice, believe it's a personal battle for an individual and shouldn't be intruded by those of differing opinions, practiced safely and not overused and abused, all the same stuff. However, I will continue further and say that this is a topic that won't go away whether it's settled one way or another. Women will find ways to get abortions whether made legal or illegal, as they have so many times before. This this debate is really about personal issues and beliefs rather than legalization by the law. I feel that places should have it legalized because without it, women will take the dangerous routes to get abortions. This issue will continue on, but I do believe a woman has a choice and should make this kind of decision by herself or with her significant other and should thoroughly thought out and done wisely.

04. Do you think the world would fail if the United States of America had a female president?
Gender isn't the issue here, it's the true goals and objectives of leadership a president upholds that really set the bar. Male or female, a leader is supposed to lead and listen to the problems of the people and not dictate or stand around making poor decisions.

05. Do you believe the death penalty is right or wrong/moral or immoral?
I'm one to say there are things worse than death for ruthless criminals and felons and murderers that have done unspeakable acts against humanity. Although there are those that have absolutely no recognition of their faults whatsoever, who believe they are above the human race and if they escaped or get out for whatever reason and roam the streets again as dangerous as they once were, that they should be placed to death.

06. Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Legalized for medical reasons of course, however it's iffy regarding actual making it illegal to the general public; there'll always be someone somewhere producing the stuff and selling it underground. People do it anyway now, so I don't see how that would make such a huge difference.

07. Are you for or against premarital sex?
Sex between mature consenting adults I am all for. Not everyone believes in marriage or wants to get married, and sometimes when that urge comes it doesn't come until much later in life. I have much respect those that are willing to wait until that time, of course. I am one of those that have yet to engage in such activities though I have no plans on waiting until marriage if and when I do find that right person to experience that act with. With this issue, I believe it should be with that one person you love and respect, not just a random fuck-and-run kind of deal.

08. Do you believe in God?
I believe there is something out there beyond human comprehension; something so unexplainable by science yet intriguing enough for us to wonder about based on miraculous experiences and events. Whether it's a god or deity or something else entirely, I'm not quite sure. I am not religious but I am spiritual enough to believe in that.

09. Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
Yes. I know there's debates, from straights and gays alike, about whether to legalize it entirely or just having civil unions. Honestly, I think the whole thing about marriage versus civil unions is a personal decision for a couple to make. So why not legalize same-sex marriage so the option is open for all couples to decide for themselves? It doesn't seem like a hard concept to grasp, IMO.

10. Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?
I think anyone who enters to United States illegally is wrong, really.

11. A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep it?
I feel this is a personal issue for the twelve-year-old and her parents to deal with, though I'd say she shouldn't care for the baby herself until she matures and grows older to accept those responsibilities. I think it's an unfortunate and sad situation for children to have a child of their own when they are clearly not prepared or ready for parenting. Whether the girl had willing unprotected sex or was forced into the situation, she isn't ready and it's so sad that this is a reality nowadays. Let's just hope that the baby is placed inside a home or taken proper care of by either family or someone else rather than left in a dumpster or something equally as horrific.

12. Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?
No. But people act ridiculous and idiotic when insane drunk no matter the legal age, so it makes no difference.

13. Should the war in Iraq be called off?
It should never have started to begin with, but for it to be "called off" would be too simple and too unrealistic to what's been happening over there. It's too complex to just oversimplify it like that. Should there be a settlement made to make things manageable without all the killings of innocents from both sides? Absolutely, but this has been a war that's been fought for many years, and while I want it to stop completely all we can do is manage the issue before it strikes up another unnecessary massacre.

14. Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?
See, this is a tricky question. To assist someone with their own suicide would mean the person gave their consent, therefore it wouldn't necessarily be murder. However, in the eyes of the law it's still murder because you were an asset to their death; an accessory to suicide-murder, perhaps? The one example I can gave, and we've seen this before, is when someone is critically ill at the hospital, whether slowly dying or indefinitely comatose, where it's either the person's decision or your own better judgment on pulling the plug on that person. That could be something in assisting in their deaths because it was their "time to go" so to speak.

Needless to say, I think this is another one of those issues where it's debateable depending on the context of the situation and the motives.

15. Do you believe in spanking your children?
As a form of alternative discipline. Does this mean that whenever a child misbehaves they get a whipping on their behind? Absolutely not. There should be other methods before going to that alternative if the child repeatedly doesn't mind to their parents wishes. I believe children are smart enough to understand that their parents mean the best of them and can be reasoned with to a certain degree of their childlike minds of understanding, and while they are curious and will push the limits of how far their parents are willing to go with their "punishments" that doesn't authorize the parent for making spanking the only thing to control and manage their children.

16. Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?

17. Who do you think would make a better president? McCain or Obama?
I believe, at this point and time with the elections, that Obama has the better presence, charisma, ideas and ways of explaining his initiuative about leading this country and what he plans on doing about problems not only here but elsewhere too. I've always been fond of Obama and the more I learn and watch him during these last critical days before the actual presidential election the more and more I have faith in his word and his passion for what he believes in. I don't get that vibe from the McCain/Palin campaign. There's just been jabs at Obama from their side left and right, and nothing in terms of making actual change in this country and for the people. Even with people saying that Obama is inexperienced, I think we need a fresh face with fresh ideas that can lead this country into a different direction than we've been heading into for the passed several years underneath the leadership (or lack thereof) with Bush. But yes, I believe Obama has what it takes to become a leader of this nation.

18. Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
No, I'm not. I have no problems with people having different opinions than mine, and I'll be happy to elaborate more on the things I've written above. It's those that think they need to bitch me out about it are the ones that are wasting my time, sry2say. Either bite your tongue or STFU and GTFO. Srsly. I am in no mood for bullshit.

I will never get tired of seeing the now infamous Jensen Ackles "Eye of the Tiger" lip-synching special, which everyone needs to see. I don't care if you haven't seen SPN in your life, you have to watch. It's way too awesome for words. I mean, you can tell that they have way too much fun filming on the set, just from the laughter in the background (it's totes Jared) to when Jensen gives that adorable Jensen-like smile in the end. He goes from Dean to himself in 0.8th of a second, and it's adorable and amazing and awesome all wrapped in epic win. Fo'srs.

Speaking of Jensen, the official trailer for My Bloody Valentine has been released. Still waiting for the Friday the 13th with Jared. Oh boys, I love you and your continuing horror-streak. And I'm a horror movie junkie so, yayz.

For those that missed it, Kripke's special message to fans regarding something about the recent episode. Which I'll write more about that as part of a meta in my review, though seriously? Fans were confused about that? 'Cause y'know, I got it, or at least picked up on the implications. Heh. Ah well. More about that and about some other things in my review, which will be posted later on tomorrow (today? Sunday afternoon if not evening, let's just say that).

Friday the 13th Trailer

OMG WHEE TRAILER!! Why didn't I think to search that in YT? D'oh. Thank you sweetie, and man does that trailer look awesome and intense. Leave it to Michael Bay for creating insane creeptastic-looking horror flicks. Hee.

The boys are pure luv. ♥

If people have a problem with those opinions, it's no loss of yours. Just saying.

Thank you. ♥

Some parts of SPN fandom don't seem to get clues or sublety. I'm sure the scripts could of been a bit more clear but it wasn't that hard to figure out.
Renéerogueslayer452 on October 26th, 2008 07:25 pm (UTC)
Srsly. I have no idea where fans reside in fandom that were so confused over something that, if one would just stop and think about what happened they would understand. I mean, c'mon, while it was cryptic it wasn't that hard to figure out. Also, I think the subtley of that was brilliant, and leaves me wondering and itching for more to be revealed.

Omg Jensen's Eye of the Tiger vid! It's genius! =DDD -is ded-
Renée: BoA.rogueslayer452 on October 26th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC)
Isn't it? I just adore him so much. ♥
(Deleted comment)
Renéerogueslayer452 on October 26th, 2008 07:18 pm (UTC)
I love him so much. ♥

This has me wondering where he's been watching fandom. TWOP? Some other message boards or communities out there? Who knows? And yes, while I agree the script didn't make it clear I don't think it was supposed to be blatantly obvious of what it was about. It would be kind of an "o rly, what's gonna on here?" type of speculation and we would get more info later on. Episode 10, to be exact. So I don't understand the confusion at all. Not all of us are that dense, Kripke! Some of us fans can read between the lines!
Jenni: supernatural → dean #2onlyechoes on October 26th, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC)
I wish I liked horror movies. I haaate them with passion because I'm such a pussy but I'd like to see My Bloody Valentine and Friday the 13th just for Jensen and Jared. And Eye of the Tiger is slowly becoming the most listened song on my iPod after just a few days, hee.

I want to do the meme but I'm too lazy and probably too European, haha.
Renée: SPN. Castiel.rogueslayer452 on October 26th, 2008 07:11 pm (UTC)
The boys are totally endorsing my love for horror. Srsly. The same with "Eye of the Tiger" because I keep rewatching that clip over and over and listening to the song on repeat. HEE!

Do it! Do it! :D :D
random_beauty88 on October 26th, 2008 06:54 pm (UTC)
I'm so totally stealing the survey.

Oh, and the Friday the 13th trailer? SQUEENESS. It looks like it'll be leaps and bounds better than I thought. XD
Renéerogueslayer452 on October 26th, 2008 07:07 pm (UTC)
ITA about Friday the 13th. Granted it's not really a remake but rather a retelling of the same story, which may be the reason why I'm planning on seeing it. Of course with Jared in it I was going to see it anyway, but yeah.
flood_and_fire on October 26th, 2008 09:40 pm (UTC)
first off: great answers, great to see someone with strong opinions voicing them very coherently. i agree with your answers! i hate when jump the gun and are zealous with responses to questions like these which are quite controversial. i ESPECIALLY love your iraq war response and the female president response.

my bloody valentine looks cheesily good! 3D sounds awesome!! and friday 13th actually looks really atmospheric and scary!! yay for the boys!!

and dont get me started on kripke's special message... some of the comments on the site i read that message on made me CRAZY. it was all basically deangirls Vs samgirls... really pathetic, im sorry to say... i didnt realise people had something against the writers focusing a little more on dean so far... i mean, the dude just got outta hell! that is ripe pickings in terms of pathos for the character!!
also, cant believe the poor show runner even had to explain himself for some throwaway joke in an episode... come on SPN fandom!!
Renée: SPN. Castiel.rogueslayer452 on October 26th, 2008 10:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I definitely agree, I've read through a few people's answers to these questions and quite a few skimp on them without really saying their own opinions. I mean, controversial topics aren't meant to be a one-sentence answer issue, which is I fear is the problem with discussing them in the first place. Voicing your opinion, whether popular or unpopular, is the point of this survey. I decided to say what I honestly felt and hey, if anyone needs something clarified I'm more than willing to do so. I love talking about something that's either been lesser voiced out. I'm just very opinionated that way.

I'm so seeing their movies. I'm such a horror movie whore. Hee! ;D

some of the comments on the site i read that message on made me CRAZY. it was all basically deangirls Vs samgirls... really pathetic, im sorry to say... i didnt realise people had something against the writers focusing a little more on dean so far

See, this is why I tend to stray away from the SPN fandom unless something interesting comes up. I mean I love the show and love talking about it with others but, the fandom as a whole? Scary with their wanking, or just plain ridiculous with their reasoning for the wanking. I really don't get the complaints about them focusing on Dean. While I do like the boys working together I like the omnious and vagueness towards Sam's motivations and what might be revealed of what's happening with him, and I do love how things are focused on Dean and his mission and the dark secret he has. It makes things more mysterious this way in the ways of the writing and the scripts and how it's all paced.

This season has been kickass so far, and I have no complaints whatsoever. The whiners can just STFU while we, the calmer and saner side of fandom, can enjoy what else is in store for what's to come.
