Ah, life...

Life offers us lots of decisions and no way to know if we're making the right one until the day to make said decision is long past and we're either celebrating our successes or, more often, lamenting our failures. Case in point:

Someone, somewhere somehow, convinced John Leguizamo (I probably butchered the spelling, sorry) to play Luigi in the movie version of Super Mario Bros, a classic that I consider the single biggest name in video game history but an absolutely awful movie. John obviously had some other option to pursue when this movie presented itself to him, but he decided no, he'd rather play the part of an apprentice plumber who falls in love with a girl who hatched from an egg and was a descendent of reptiles.

And, of course, the very same movie features Dennis Hopper as the dreadful King Koopa, who really shows no signs of being a reptile, except of course for his blonde hair, which he keeps neatly bound in cornrows. This world has really done a poor job of exploring the possibility of turning its enemies into a fungus.

Moral of the story: Even successful people make really bad decisions. I'd say that's about it. I'm going to bed now.

Randomness concludes. This has been KL Snow.
