Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made

Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.

He proceeded to show it to us in class.

Dude, seriously.  This version is actually very accurate.

My Shakespeare professor in grad school said the same thing.

I think most Shakespeare movies are just so classy and highbrow with their gorgeous period costumes and mandatory snooty elocutionary accents that people forget how goofy this play actually is. The lines, the characters, the motivations, the babyfaced teen stars, I just… oh my god it’s all so real. I’ve heard a lot of people blast Baz Luhrmann for making such a campy adaptation and it’s just like no, you don’t understand, that was all Shakespeare.

Sometimes I wonder if the real reason it’s disliked is because it was so damn popular with teenage girls.

shakespeare was 90% dick jokes and 10% people getting stabbed and if you don’t love it i don’T UNDERSTAND

For all you “oil companies are evil giants out to eat children” people.

is this accurate?

My dad, grandpa, great uncle, and uncle all work for Oil Companies in one form or another and this is accurate. At least for the tax on consumers.

There’s another tax for the producers of the oil.

But what about the profit? Do they make less of a profit than the government?

Oh hell yeah the Government makes more off of oil than the companies that produce it do. At the very least as far as fuel like gas and diesel go.

There are all kinds of federal and state taxes on it.

Nowadays it’s around 18¢ a gallon on average that oil companies earn.
Then the gas stations have to make a profit and are also being bled by the government in one way or another.

If oil had just one tax on it, the price change would be drastically reduced.

But instead it’s bled out with taxes all over the place in every which way the government can take it. Whether it’s a tax on the consumer, producer, or distributor.

Oil and gas companies actually make a LOT more of a profit in other ways and on the other products that are made by petroleum than they do from the gas and diesel that run cars. In comparison the money they make from gas and diesel is almost chump change.

Oil goes into a massive variety of other products we use on a daily basis all across the United States.
