Watched it recently, I wouldn't say that it's comfy at all friend. I mean, I would say it's more "calm" than comfy at times. I mean fuck man, that movie can be depressing, and extremely tense at times. It's not really something for the comfy mind, just my thoughts though, great film though.

Elvira(at the mechanic after her car blows up in the middle of town): "OH Great! That means I'm stuck in this hell hole. I mean this, "quaint", little hell hole. Listen is there a motel or somethin around here?"
Mechanic: "Well theres the Cozy Cot, down by the widow Bishop's Feed Store. Course her son's sorta took that over, after she had that spell of gingivitis... (Elvira gives him a dirty look and walks away) Her whole mouth swoll up, look like she ate a box of staples. Folks were saying she got it from kissing that ol' dog of hers" (Turns and notices shes left) "Nice tits."


Elvira: "So, Robin, what is there to do for fun around here?"
Robin: "This town isn't big on fun... Well there is one place thats open. The bowling alley. That gets real wild on league night."
Elvira: "Gee, I think I can handle it."

Would you actually help me on this subject? I go to a pretty small liberal school and most people around here are very opposed to fracking yet I see on here support towards it. Don't have any stance on it because I don't know shit about it really other than it does or possibly wrecks the environment in the surrounding area.

My school former district has two schools. One of them is in the city and one of them is in the rural periphery in an exurb.

Anyway, that's not really important. I went to the school in the periphery.

I always considered myself quite suburban since I've never lived somewhere with a farm field behind my house. Some of the kids at my school took very strongly to a country identity. I thought it was kind of weird how some of the kids who live on farms or were friends with farm kids would insist on wearing cowboy boots and hats. This is about an hour north of Canada (the fastest way to get to Canada from where I live is to drive to Windsor). On the last day of school once in a while, these individuals would drive their combines to school. They also fetishized country music and drunk driving.

Being a hillbilly is nothing to be proud of.
