There Are Two Kinds Of People: Princess Bride People and Everyone Else

Today is the 25th Anniversary of one of my favorite movies: The Princess Bride. It is also on the “thumbs up” list of anyone who is one of my friends. How is that possible? It’s easy. There are two kinds of people that live in the world I like to call home: Princess Bride People and people I wouldn’t want to be friends with.

Why? Because if you don’t love a good rhyming pun, watching Andre The Giant in tights, a lighthearted look at the folly of fairy tales, watching bumbling sword fights or laughing at your own nerdiness in the light of others who have committed it to film then you have no sense of humor and no place in my world.

This is a movie that connects the North American nerds in a way that hits below the Star-Trek radar and allows those who were “liberal arts” majors and have no working knowledge of science or IT to enjoy some intellectual banter.  But the Trekkies can come play too.

So today I celebrate the 14 year-old boy in me and share a link to some of the best Scenes from one of the “best” movies of all time:

ThePopularitéBug

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.

AMERICAN MALE

Often described as a blog, an online magazine, a journal. When examined further the description changes and it becomes a project, an objective, a mission. American Male is one simple thing. It is a collection of different thoughts and experiences so come share yours and be part of the narrative.
