Ric Flair’s Golden Spoon
Many have tried, but few can match the promos Ric Flair was wheeling out routinely during his heyday. Whether heel or babyface, the self-styled ‘Nature Boy’ knew exactly how to get people listening. Unstoppably brilliant when given the platform to talk, Flair proved each time why he was the biggest star in the territory.
This infamous example comes from 1987, and what makes it so effective is the little elements of truth slipped in. Ric Flair’s promos were so good because he really believed in what he was saying, and that comes across to the fans – it’s mighty difficult to not pay attention when somebody is speaking with such conviction.
Somehow, even though he’s rubbing it in people’s faces that he has tremendous wealth, Flair comes across as passionate and almost likeable, again because his words carry amazing confidence. Just try and watch this one without getting goosebumps.
There comes a time in a man’s life when he should grow up and get serious about a relationship. Maybe that’s true for some, but surely that doesn’t mean you have to submit to the ways of a dominant and controlling woman, does it? You don’t have to cower in the corner with your emasculated tail between your legs. Hell no!
If you’ve ever wondered whether or not you’re one of the many unfortunate suckers out there who’ve joined the ranks of the whipped (and are probably being mocked and ridiculed for it to boot), take a look at this list of top 10 signs you’re whipped; if you recognize any of them, for God’s sake, man up and do something about it.
1. Going for a beer requires permission
It’s not just going for a beer that requires her permission, so does every other trivial excursion. In the mind of your power-hungry girlfriend, going for a beer with your friends spells out trouble and, therefore, it’s heavily frowned upon. All of a sudden, you can’t even pop into a pub for a quick one at the end of the day without facing a barrage of harassment when you return home. Subsequently, you’ve stopped doing it to avoid the hassle that, for the record, makes you a spineless pansy. This is a big one boys, but our signs you’re whipped doesn’t end here.
2. She makes your decisions for you
You question how you ever let it get to the point where she makes your decisions for you, but it’s true. In your protective prison/womb of a relationship you no longer really make anything more than minor life decisions for yourself. Somehow, she’s managed to grant herself a seat on the UN Security Council that is your life and she’s not afraid to wield her power of veto. As mandated by No. 9 of our signs you’re whipped, you have little or no say in the affairs that directly concern you, such as holiday destinations, major purchases or even plans for the weekend.
Eminem – The Warning
Target : Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon
Like I’mma sit and fight with you over some slut bitch cunt/That made me put up with her psycho ass over six months/And only spread her legs to let me hit once
Duk Koo Kim
A superstar in South Korea, Kim had risen all the way to number one lightweight contender and earned a world title shot against the famed Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini on November 13, 1982. The bout was extremely brutal, especially for Kim, who had begun to wear down in the latter rounds after absorbing tremendous punishment from the champion. In the early part of the 14th round Mancini hit Kim with a crushing right hand that caused him to fly toward the ropes and hit his head on the canvas.
Kim managed to rise but the referee stopped the fight. Minutes later Duk Koo Kim collapsed into a coma and was carried out of the ring and taken directly to the hospital. Tragically the Korean star died 4 days later from severe brain trauma. Out of the hundreds of recorded ring fatalities Kim’s death was one of the saddest. Kim’s opponent Ray Mancini would never again be the same caliber fighter and it was widely reported that he blamed himself for Kim’s death. Kim’s mother committed suicide three months after her son’s death by drinking a bottle of pesticide. The bout’s referee Richard Green, consumed by guilt, also committed suicide shortly after the fight.
Mortal Kombat: Annihilation…So many moments in this movie that deserve to be on the list, but this one stands out
In the series finale, all hope of an episode of reminiscing about the humor that made the series a hit was stripped away – as viewers got to watch Earl Sinclair bring about the end of the Dinosaurs by poisoning the world’s plant life and subsequently blocking out the sun. The result of which was global temperatures dropping well below freezing and the imminent extinction of every living thing on the planet.
While every adult watching knew what was happening, their children may have been somewhat oblivious. Luckily, the writers made time in the finale’s last moments to bring everyone in the know as Earl has to explain to Baby Sinclair how there’s no place for them to go and that he’s sorry for killing them all.
This episode was so WTF that TV Guide had to include a special warning that the subject matter in this episode might “frighten or disturb younger viewers.” You know, because children aren’t really used to watching their favorite characters – who were marketed to kids in the form of music videos and stuffed animals – dying a slow death.
The Wandering Soul
“Ghost Tape Number 10” was an audio mix the US military used for psychological operations in the Vietnam War against the North Vietnamese. It played deeply on the Vietnamese belief of ancestor worship, spirits and the afterlife.The Wandering Soul was played on loudspeakers installed on helicopters, PCF boats or by infiltrating infantry ‘loudspeaker teams’ on known enemy areas usually at night deep within the jungle. It exploited the Buddhist belief that once a person dies, his body must be buried in the family plot or his soul will wander aimlessly.
Being a avid horror fan, I can appreciate a scary movie scene when it deprives me of sleep for the next few nights. While this compilation will scare the shit out of 99% of the population, hardcore horror fans can only appreciate the awesomeness of these scenes .
