Inspired by the above picture posted in the animated gif thread... what are the worst styles, fads, dances, etc., that you've been exposed to, that made you want to jump off a bridge or drive a dagger through another person's heart.
The above is one of mine, and I have to say, it wasn't just about the character. I actually liked the show Family Matters, until that spawn came along and ruined it.
But the top of my list has to be the ridiculously baggy pants that was in style in the early part of the last decade. I guess they got used to it after awhile, but you could tell that was so awkward for some people that I really think it may be the stupidest fashion ever.
Share your pain.

Keanu Reaves has confirmed in an interview that he will be a part of two more Matrix movies to come, stating that he feels he still has an obligation to deliver a movie worthy of the title "The Matrix".
I'm pretty optimistic.... I'm assuming that the Wachowski's are on the same page with him in regards to the sequels not being the movies the fans wanted to see, and I'm excited to see if they can come close to the first film again.
In a related note, the Wachowski's have submitted a script for a futuristic Robin Hood movie to star Will Smith. Funny timing that those two projects are announced at the same time, IMO, since Will Smith turned down the role of Neo to make Wild, Wild West. Sure he's still kicking himself over that one.

So as the story goes... when Empire Strikes back started, George Lucas still envisioned Star Wars as a serial where he would be plugging out a movie every year or two. And he was becoming nervous that the series would be too reliant on actors who were going to go off and do their own thing or want too much money. Mark Hamill was only signed on for the two sequels. What if he didn't come back after the third movie? And so Lucas set the stage for a replacement:
"That boy is our last hope."
"No, there is another."
By the time Empire Strikes back was done... Lucas was about done as well. One more movie and he was out, making the need for a new star irrelevant. Except now, going into the third movie, he had a pretty huge dangling thread.
A strong possibility was that the other hope was going to be Luke's twin sister, secretly being trained in another part of the galaxy. Rather than introduce a new character at this point in the story, Lucas chose to merge this character with Leia, much like he merged Anakin and Darth Vader in the second movie.
Soooo... put yourself in Lucas's shoes... (forget everything that's come after built off of this decision).. was Leia as the last hope and twin sister, the best choice to resolve that question? Or what would you have done?
Other choices one might conceivably go with..
The last hope is another existing character (or even leia without the sister connection)
A new character... who would this person be?
Leave it hanging.. make vague promises of another movie!

A couple of days ago, PG&E announced that the toxic plume was again beginning to contaminate the water in the town of Hinkley, CA (a story which was originally told in the movie Erin Brokovich) and is offering to buy the homes of the people affected...
But things are even worse in the city of Barstow (of which Hinkley is a subcommunity)... on Thursday, the Marine Core Logistics Base located just outside of the city, found through their own water-testing that the water was infected with percholate (not the chromium-6 which infected Hinkley's water) and that people on the base should not drink it. The water company (Golden State), through further testing, found that the entire city is affected by this! Yesterday afternoon, local restaurants began closing and water distribution sites have been set up in the city.
Once the crisis is resolved, the immediate concern would be how long has it been like this... the fact that an outside source had to bring this to Golden State's attention is pretty scary when you consider the MCLB probably isn't just sitting around testing water... certainly not as frequently as you would expect the water company itself to do.
Summing up what I'm finding on wikipedia, percholate can inhibit the thyroid's ability to absorb iodine from the bloodstream, which can result in abnormal thyroid growth and affect the functioning and growth of the organism as a whole. Percholate is a salt which decomposes to create oxygen, and is frequently used in rocket fuels.
Am at work right now, will add some links to this later.
