I wish I had been walking around to see this. I would have flipped out.

I wish I hadn't seen it was a viral thing for the movie 'Chronicle' I flipped out.

The Chronicle plug really ruined the end of that for me.

Flying people in the skies of NYC.

Well not the ideal choice of words, but I'm glad it wasn't the footage I thought it was.

Gotta combine this with the flying shark blimps from a few months ago.

I got one of those flying blimp sharks for my girlfriend this Xmas. It's amazing, and very fun to swim out over the street.

You know, those flying shark things are supposed to be kept indoors!

Do want.

I want people to believe in the Last Son of Illinois.

"My favorite thing is a human kite. That's the thing where you tie a string to a midget in a windbreaker and start running through a field."

Problem with that is that the ones I try are always too healthy so they flail around and ruin the airflow.

And I can't run very fast. Nothing is sadder looking than a midget who's been dragged through dirt and rocks for several minutes.

OMG! The rapture! Take me too, Lord Jesus! I'm coming home!

You know, not to derail or anything, but I'm finding these midget jokes just about offensive as nigger and faggot jokes.

Sorry, clarknova, you're right. I was trying to say how it reminded me of Stefon from SNL (that's his joke in the quotes).
