During a discussion on Twilight on ohnotheydidnt , purplelily85 sums the series up and everything that's wrong with it.

Bella:
I love you.
Edward: I'd love to kill you. But I'll do my best not to.
Bella: Awwww! I love you.
Edward: I sneak into your house and watch you sleep at night.
Bella: OMG COULD YOU BE ANY CUTER? I love you.
Edward: I read your friends' minds so I can know what you tell them about me.
Bella: YOU'RE THE BEST!!! I love you.
Edward: I could eat you at any moment.
Bella: YOU ARE SO GORGEOUS!! I love you.
Edward: You'll do exactly what I say when I say it and you won't complain, bitch.
Bella: You betcha! I love you.
Edward: I'm going to mindfuck you so bad you'll be suicidal.
Bella: I can't wait! I love you.
Edward: I give up. You're a complete fucking moron.
Bella: YOU ARE SO FREAKING WONDERFUL AMAZING AND GORGEOUS! I WOULD RATHER SHOOT MYSELF IN THE FACE AFTER GOUGING OUT MY EYE WITH A DULL SPOON THAN BE WITHOUT YOU. I love you.

Context.
corvus cornix

Yay patriotism!

...and the attempts to instill it at school.

dawntreader90 about the Pledge of Alliance:

"the thing i recall most about the Pledge happened in fifth grade. we had a teacher who INSISTED we not take a breath between "one nation under God" because there is no comma. yet if you listen to everyone who says the Pledge, they say, "one nation *breath* under God" and they say it like there's a comma. they pause. to this day, i'm probably the only person on the planet that knows there isn't a comma. and now you.

that is what i ultimately learned after all my years of saying the Pledge of Allegiance. :)"

should context be taught in school?
Most of us serve/worship the same Heaven, so...

Yay, my first metaquote! ...I mean, The Truth Behind Twilight's Fame!

kishmet on why Twilight series is so popular among young women:

My sister's reading through Twilight right now and we're discussing it, and suddenly, about ten minutes ago, I realized what the book reminded me of.

A yaoi manga.

Edward/Seme: Gorgeous, talented, amazing, flawless, but also unbalanced and obsessive.

Bella/Uke: Faints, pines, possesses an inferiority complex the size of Manhattan despite the seme/sparkly vampire's obsessiveness.



Do you agree with said theory, or not? QWP.
