Cold ones during the Cold war  

So I was watching a documentary earlier today - 1983: The Brink of Apocalypse. About how the Cold War came so very close to becoming World War III due to tension between the USA and the USSR and each refusing to back down their nuclear arms. (Turns out there was a Behind the Scenes Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part one show on another channel, so I switched stations and I'm not sure what happened in the end of 1983... ;P)

But what I was wondering is what would be the repercussions for the Volturi and other vampires if a nuclear war did begin.

Also, would you think Aro would sit back and watch things unfold. Or would he try get in there somehow. Influence certain people, certain aspects. If so, which way do you think he'd go - for or against the bomb?

I stand by what I said. That isn't to say she can't pull it off character wise. But its just not believable that she's playing a plain Jane. She is far to beautiful.
It's like this new Johnny Depp trailer I saw: The Tourist. As much as I admire and adore Johnny's acting ability, it seemed off to me that he was surprised to have the attention of a stunning woman like Angie Jolie.

when she played a serial killer in monster, she was hardly the glamorous beauty she usually is
Prosthetics were used for that role.

This is actually a bad topic to get me into cos I get so very depressed, lol. I'm not ugly but I am very plain and there is no amount of nice clothes that can make me look any better. I've had braces, laser eye, diets, this, that and the other. I never look anyway different. You're plain, you're plain. Get used to it.

I do get all that, but I don't really agree.

Yes, yes they do, well I think so. I was out by The Edges house in Malahide during the summer (there is a small beach that lies behind it. Not well know and not private so it's actually a lovely place to go to watch the waves).
But pub trawl on your own my dear, I'm am in the minority of Irish people who do not drink at all. And not because of pass addictions to the stuff. I just don't like the taste nor the stupidity that comes with being pissed.

but we can always sit in coffee shops and be pretentious and see who we attract...
Why, yes, I do believe I would like that best, lol. But then again people annoy me. I don't want to attract anyone. I'm happy just to watch them go by and imagine little stories about them.

And Karaoke is fun. :)
