O, Death
O, Death

Won’t you spare me over til another year
Well what is this that I can’t see
With ice cold hands takin’ hold of me
Well I am death, none can excel
I’ll open the door to heaven or hell
Whoa, death someone would pray
Could you wait to call me another day
The children prayed, the preacher preached
Time and mercy is out of your reach
I’ll fix your feet til you cant walk
I’ll lock your jaw til you cant talk
I’ll close your eyes so you can’t see
This very hour, come and go with me
I’m death I come to take the soul
Leave the body and leave it cold
To draw up the flesh off of the frame
Dirt and worm both have a claim

O, Death
O, Death

Won’t you spare me over til another year
My mother came to my bed
Placed a cold towel upon my head
My head is warm my feet are cold
Death is a-movin upon my soul
Oh, death how you’re treatin’ me
You’ve close my eyes so I can’t see
Well you’re hurtin’ my body
You make me cold
You run my life right outta my soul
Oh death please consider my age
Please don’t take me at this stage
My wealth is all at your command
If you will move your icy hand
Oh the young, the rich or poor
Hunger like me you know
No wealth, no ruin, no silver no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul

O, Death
O, Death

Wont you spare me over ‘til another year
Wont you spare me over 'til another year
Wont you spare me over 'til another year

Imagine this. All of the main cast, all 10 of them (because yes, I include Lana), are in a 10 person brawl. All they have is themselves. No sudden training, no anime powers, just a good old-fashioned brawl. In your opinion, who will come out on top? Include reasons why if you feel like it? Thank you.

10. Furley would be the first to go because he’s too delicate. He’d try his hand at karate but would ultimately spiral into a full blown panic attack and pass out.
9. Lana would be next - not because she couldn’t kick some ass if she wanted to, but because she just wouldn’t care enough to try. She has more important things to do, like try and take advantage of Jack.
8. Larry’s next because he’s all talk and no guts. I imagine him puffing himself up and then cowering in the corner as soon as anyone took him up on his threats.
7. Roper is next. He has enough pent up inner rage to try and kick some ass. He almost gets somewhere, until Mrs. Roper cuts him off. 
6. Mrs. Roper is next. She tries her hand at whooping a trick with her giant necklaces, but she ends up feeling guilty about it. She’s such a nice lady. She couldn’t hurt the kids. Only Roper.
5. Chrissy would be next. She has zero skill and would only get anywhere from sheer force of mind, essentially building everyone up into a frenzy with her bs that it starts a riot. 
4. Jack has training in the Navy and he definitely whooped that guy in the ring, so he could get somewhere. At the end of the day, though, his inner wimp comes out and he’s shut down.
3. By Terri’s needle. Terri is definitely up toward the top, let’s be real. I could easily imagine Terri dominating in any other group, but she has two other important contenders to stop her…
2. Janet. Everybody knows that Janet could kick anybody’s ass. Remember the time she straight up body slammed Jack? Janet would win this fight hands down. There’s just one problem.
1. Cindy enters the brawl at the last minute, knocking Janet out with an innocent opening of the door and a “hiya everybody!”

‘Paths of Glory’, Stanley Kubrick (1957)

There are few things more fundamentally encouraging and stimulating than seeing someone else die.

Imagine the Stanley Parable in the Wreck it Ralph universe. Stanley really is a mute push over that always does what the narrator says.
Narrator still being a disembodied voice above Stanleys head, that everyone can hear, who sasses other avatars in a passive aggressive manner.

Stanley isn’t ready for this kind of confrontation

Watching an episode of Wonder Woman from 1977, directed by Leslie H Martinson. Martinson directed the Batman 66 movie (and Wonder Woman series developer Stanley Ralph Ross wrote more Batman 66 episodes than any other writer) and it appears that he snuck a callback to one of the best labels from the film into IADC headquarters.
