Thanks guys, feel free to discuss your favorite orphan recipes in this thread!
really?
Well, I like it when they're slice up into chunks and placed into a casserole. nothing like leeting the gravy juices soak into the meat... add a few dumplings, some sliced carrots, so peas, other assorted veggies, etc.
then leave for 12 hours on a low simmer.

wait. you are talking about cooking orphans, right?

Why include orphans? Poor bastard's (well.. I use the term loosely) have hard enough time as it is, they don't need more attention brought upon their bane.

It's contextual. Orphans are a typical figure for the stimulation of pity because the archetypal 'happy childhood' includes two parents and a stable home environment. To have lost both and to be alone, per se, is something we sympathise with. A bit like the grieving lover. In news it can increase the sorrow of an article, turning it into something horrible because these people have already lost so much. And so on.

Nigeria apology... good story.

But then it's not journalism, it's spin. Your using these poor orphan's dilemmnas to shape a readers interpretation of a peice of information or news.

So infact, you pre-emptively create context for the reader rather than them allowing their own context to shape their opinion.

If there are orphans involved, let there be orphans in the writing of it. All media presents a context and a bias because to simply write the facts of "x-people/person did a to z" would never a) sell or b) make use of a language we have. They're not people fighting people, they're terrorists and Peacekeepers, or freedom fighters and invaders. The orphans get caught in the middle.

if sony ever made a motion sensitive device you know the porn industry would make a dildo shaped motion sensitive device with of course a great vibrate setting hell the only reason that they havent done so with the wii is because nintendo would never let a porn company do it

In the middle, either side of where their parents should be? See?! you've already made me feel bad about debating the subject by bringing up the sodding cannibalist's delicacy and their personal issues. Hell, it COULD even cause readers to have inner crisis about tangential political and social issues. And really, if they're reading the news do they need more issues and self-depricating revelations?

So what are we calling remakes reboots because it sounds better. Or is it a reboot because the movie being remade is less than 10 years old?

"But to really get the full experience, you need a friend to play with. Really, there's nothing better than a having a couple of friends over, drinking some beer and playing with your balls."
Just make sure you don't forget to bring yours, because playing with your friend's balls is rarely as satisfying.

I only really found the Nigerian bit any funny, and it was a little obvious.

How about instead of using Milla Jovovich they go with the story and characters from the games? It's wacky enough to be interesting. People stuck inside a mansion and trying to find a way out. Giant spider. Giant snake. That would probably be a good movie.
I suspect that when it's done, Degeneration will still be the best RE movie.
