    p.s Yes I know i'm a grumpy elitist hermit.
    What? You twazzock, Hot Fuzz was the ****. It was like Shawn of the Dead if Shawn of the Dead hadn't been depressing as **** at the end. Your quote would be forgiveable if you had said Run Fat Boy Run, but saying that Hot Fuzz is **** crosses the fucking line.

    Karate. Boxing.

    Plus, it can only stay popular for so long. After that people look at you like "WTF? That's sooo 2008!"

    Based on my experience in gardening, bugs will eat the vegetables before they are ready to eat.

    I did see something similar thing happen in mountain biking... We had a trail that almost nobody rode. As the sport grew, more people showed up. It was written up in a national magazine as one of the top 10 trails in the states. Last time I rode it, the trail was eroded to crap from overuse. I haven't been back.

    I don't see how this applies to MMA, so I'll stick to my first analogy... MMA will be eaten by bugs.

    I like your use of twazzcock. It's a shame you're so wrong about Hot Fuzz.

    irrelevant. It's more about whether you like it because you like it or because you are told by the media to like it.

    Prove me wrong. Only thing bad about that film was that you saw the hooded killer, which messed it up a little because otherwise there would have been a great element of psych thriller as well. Everything else was fucking brilliant.

    not irrelevant as how did you become aware of the topic at hand?
    you created it or you were exposed to it.
    if you created it, you may cluck your tounge and wag your finger all you wish otherwise, you are no better then anyone who comes after you and sticks it out.
    the "media" cannot tell anyone what to like or not unless that person is a weak-minded fool. the media in and of itself are LAZY and will look only for what is perceived to be the easy story: in this case, something people already like.
    Hidden within the teeming masses beating down the door of the school will be the small percentage who is serious.
    all the rest will be weeded out, cast aside, forgotten and will move on to something else.
