I just got back from District 9. I was watching it with a friend I haven't seen in nearly 10 years. It was an amazing film. But! But partway through, the people behind us started talking. It was a young couple - well into their 20s - and it seems like the guy was explaining the movie to the girl. It was like a DVD commentary for stupid people. Seriously.

So my friend, God bless her, turns and politely says, Can you please be quiet? And they were for the most part. Fair enough. But when she did, I guess my friend accidentally kicked the guy in front of her. And the guy didn't say anything! For the whole movie! Until the lights went up! And then the swearing began and the middle fingers flew.

I realized something at that moment. I haven't been in a fight - and I mean a real fight - since high school. I thought to myself, I'm going to have to fight this dude.

And I realized at that moment, I would not have minded in the least.
