MIHYAP Contest #1

>> Saturday, February 13, 2010

So, the book has its first contest and some are being given away from free, a gesture always appreciated by students in perennially impecunious situations. Dear GB, when selecting the winners, do remember your fan base who go day after day barely surviving on hostel food. They are the salt of the earth, the ones who unblushingly aspire for pirated copies.

OK, I am not really sure what I meant to write as an introduction. I tend to digress a lot when it comes to hostel food.

The rules can be found here.

My top ten favourite movie lines are:

  1. Well, say something! You lousy bunch of bleedin' hearts. You're not goin' to intimidate me! I'm entitled to my own opinion! Rotten kids... you work your life out! No. Not guilty. Not guilty! (12 Angry Men)
  2. I guess this is just another lost cause, Mr. Paine. All you people don't know about lost causes. Mr. Paine does. He said once they were the only causes worth fighting for. And he fought for them once, for the only reason any man ever fights for them; because of just one plain simple rule: 'Love thy neighbor.'... And you know that you fight for the lost causes harder than for any other. Yes, you even die for them, like a man we both knew, Mr. Paine.You think I'm licked.You all think I'm licked.Well, I am not licked!I'll stay and fight for this lost cause. Even if this room gets filled with lies like these; and the Taylors and all their armies come marching into this place.. Somebody will listen to me. (Mr. Smith goes to Washington)
  3. I've never been alone with a man before, even with my dress on. With my dress off, it's MOST unusual. (Roman Holiday)
  4. Tonight, a comedian died in New York. (Watchmen)
  5. I guess that's how it crumbles, cookiewise. (The Apartment)
  6. I'll never be hungry again. (Gone with the wind) (Also, newly favoured due to the hostel food horror)
  7. I am Death (Seventh Seal)
  8. The Dude abides (Big Lebowski)
  9. Gentlemen, you can't fight in here. This is the War Room! (Dr. Strangelove)
  10. Everyone can be super! And when everyone's super, no one will be (The Incredibles)
