Pennywise the Dancing Clown. What's worse it that there's a remake coming out. This year. I'll never sleep again, no sir I won't. Stephen King, you kill me.

Curry should have received an award for portraying Pennywise in that first movie. His voice was grating and full of mud.... there's nothing scarier than that guy. I just hope they do a decent job and not butcher something that is already horrifying. The book was very good, don't watch the movies and judge it in that regard.

They always screw up his movies. Dolores Claiborne and Misery were decent but I hated the monster at the end of "IT". That wasn't no dang spider stealing kids.

Pitt_Mackeson 6 years, 12 months ago

In the book it's an alien that resembles a spider at the end but they didn't do too good of a job with it. Oh well maybe this new one will be good idk

This . . .

Oh, and the smell of cooked cabbage. Probably what hell smells like.

This should be a fun one.

To me fear is when you lose control of a situation and give up. . let whatever is happening happen and let it unfold while doing nothing to prevent it. I've never done that. I've been shot at, had a straight razor pushed up against my gut, had "80,000 pounds of rolling death", a truck I was driving, get out of control on ice. Many more. Always, always, my mind starts racing, thinking of different ways to regain control of a potentially bad event. The adrenaline rush is a high I never get over. Afterward (sometimes days or weeks) I may think "well that could have easily turned out differently!", even gotten physically ill, but not at the time.

You may want me in your corner in a fight. Or maybe not . .

Sometimes I fear the dog will relieve herself in the night and it will squish up between my toes as I make my fourth trip to the john in the dark. I also fear we will never get all the hair she (the dog) sheds out of the carpet and furniture. Glad she (the wife) has a good sense of humor.

Biggest fear? That somehow this country has lost it's collective mind and Trump becomes President.

That the soulless drones of hopenchange let their liberal guilt overcome their last remaining ounce of common sense and vote for the Campaigner in Chief again in 2012.

Or that the lemurs figure out how to operate the chainsaw.

There are so few 2500# carp, odds are better you will win the lottery. Now THAT"S scary!

Ever watch Arnold in "Eraser"?

Whitney has that power.

Absolutely frightening . . .

... and Trump becomes President. Trump pretty much ended his chances as a serious contender in the 2012 race this last week after his ridiculous profanity rant in Las Vegas and his demeanor at the annual White House Correspondents dinner last night. There is something wrong with that man aside from his enormous ego.

If you really think that the Donald was ever a serious contender for the job in the White House, you should look into some adjustment of your meds.
