      What, no 'Requiem for a Dream'?





      That is motivational though.
      It's motivated me to never want to take heroin. Yikes.

        They motivated me to take more of an interest in psychology and in the darker side of human nature. I watched them and thought: 'that's what I should do'. I guess they're just a few films of many that have a real effect on a person.
        Ok fair enough

        If you ever go up in court on suspicion of murder that line in bold is really not going to do you any favours...

        You smile and say fair enough when people tell you their inspiration for becoming a glorified serial killer? I'm guessing you're not the best judge of character...

        Haha, I'm glad you noticed that line in particular. I was pleased with how it went down until you flagged it up . But yeah, I'm not actually serious, I must urge again, someone highlight my original post...

        I speak from experience; there comes a point when you get scared with how well your sarcasm goes down. If you have people happily accepting you're a psychopath, that's probably when you need reassurance that someone else gets it. :p:

        But yeah, it was a very funny post. :yy:

        OxfordGo...(sarcastically) says he's motivated to commit murder and you allow him to explain that he was kidding. I jokingly said the thread could close after my opinion and was instantly negged. Fair.
