Yes. That's part of the reason I was interested in the plot as well. I'm embarrassed as an American both that it happened, and that it's been apparently conveniently forgotten by a good part of the population, or remains unknown among the other part of the population.

I imagine that it's probably taught in Pac NW schools, though. Hopefully California as well.

I'll have to ask around - some of my coworkers grew up here (running joke in Seattle is that there aren't many native Washintonians). I'll see if they remember learning about that in school.

Although to be fair, I don't remember everything I learned in history classes.

What's worse is that people find it funny.

I prefer the term "Seattlites". Cuz it's like SCI-FI sounding.

Then you are doomed to repeat it, missy.

No, I'm only going to repeat the good stuff. I'm going to invent space travel and the iPod.

And discover America, except I'll know that I'm not actually in India and will not give the natives blankets ridden with smallpox.

Just make sure you change the song in the first iPod ad to "Squirtigo".

Less than a minute. I'm impressed.

LMP, I think you mentioned something the other day about people putting a lot of work into making truly terrible movies. I take back my skepticism now that I realize I'm madly curious to see how The Bay has outdone his insane adolescent ignorance in the name of excess.

Lights go down
It's dark
The theater curtains drawn
The film it starts
I'm feeling so much stiffer
Than I ought
My thighs are wide
Through boxer hole
It has been brought
Her hand can wander


CLASSIC.

The problem is that Bay's in on the joke here, too. When LaBeouf goes to college, everyone's HOT. Obnoxious Roommate has an entire computer mainframe in some adjoining room, since dorms are small apartments, I guess.

I was in disbelief at how far The Bay was able to go. At one point, to show how evil the Decepticons are, one of them kicks over an American flag. What's next? One of them pees on a bald eagle? And somehow Obama is to blame for trying to end Autobot/US relations? Incredible.

There's some perverse entertainment to be found here, moreso than the lifeless corpse that was Wolverine, part of why Tranny 2 is only the 2nd-worst of the year for me. Don't let your curiosity get to you, you're going to regret it.

This is definitely not something uttered by Special Lady Friend.


Sorry, didn't catch this at first.
