Morons Are Taking Avatar Waaaay Too Seriously

?But here’s the mystery — which morons am I talking about, the Avatar lovers or the reporters who are taking comments on a fucking Avatar forum and reporting them as news? From CNN:

James Cameron’s completely immersive spectacle “Avatar” may have
been a little too real for some fans who say they have experienced
depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they
long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora.

On the fan
forum site “Avatar Forums,” a topic thread entitled “Ways to cope with
the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible,” has received
more than 1,000 posts from people experiencing depression and fans
trying to help them cope. The topic became so popular last month that
forum administrator Philippe Baghdassarian had to create a second
thread so people could continue to post their confused feelings about
the movie.

“I wasn’t depressed myself. In fact the movie made me
happy ,” Baghdassarian said. “But I can understand why it made people
depressed. The movie was so beautiful and it showed something we don’t
have here on Earth. I think people saw we could be living in a
completely different world and that caused them to be depressed.”

A post by a user called Elequin expresses an almost obsessive relationship with the film.

all I have been doing as of late, searching the Internet for more info
about ‘Avatar.’ I guess that helps. It’s so hard I can’t force myself
to think that it’s just a movie, and to get over it, that living like
the Na’vi will never happen. I think I need a rebound movie,” Elequin

A user named Mike wrote on the fan Web site “Naviblue” that he contemplated suicide after seeing the movie.

“Ever since I went to see ‘Avatar’ I have
been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the
Na’vi made me want to be one of them. I can’t stop thinking about all
the things that happened in the film and all of the tears and shivers I
got from it,” Mike posted. “I even contemplate suicide thinking that if
I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to Pandora and the
everything is the same as in ‘Avatar.’ “

Other fans have expressed feelings of disgust with the human race and disengagement with reality.

I’m certainly having feelings of disgust with the human race, although I think everyone else but me has disengaged from reality. Seriously, you Avatar-worshipping morons? You’re letting a freaking Science Fiction 101 — an admittedly pretty one — story bum you out so much that life doesn’t seem worth living? Goddamn, you people, don’t ever read Ender’s Game, becaase you will shit yourself. to death. Actually, do. DIE. PLEASE STRAP YOURSELF IN A ROCKET AND SHOOT YOURSELF TO PANDORA. WE DO NOT NEED YOU.

And don’t you look smug, CNN reporters. Seriously — “On the fan
forum site ‘Avatar Forums,’ a topic thread entitled ‘Ways to cope with
the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible,” has received
more than 1,000 posts'” — are you fucking kidding me? You’re reprting shit idiots say in online forums as news? GODDAMMIT, I AM A NERD WRITING A NERD NEWS SITE AND EVEN I DON’T “REPORT” “NEWS” FROM ONLINE FORUMS. THAT’S THE STUPIDEST BULLSHIT EVER. YOU ARE OFFICIALLY NO LONGER REPORTERS. YOU’VE FAILED. Your punishment is to join the Pan-depressives on the rockets and let them dictate all their horrible Na’vi poetry to you for eternity.

Fuck. FUCK. Thanks to all jillion of you who sent this ridiculous bullshit in.
