I was there in 1968

LOOK AT THIS FUCKING PETITION.

If the rights to further entries in the horror franchises "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Halloween", "Friday The 13th", "A Nightmare On Elm Street", "Child's Play(Chucky)", "Leprechaun", "Hellraiser", "Re-Animator", "Phantasm", "Candyman", "Maniac Cop", "Silent Night, Deadly Night", "Darkman", "Wishmaster", and "Annabelle"/"The Conjuring", the rights to further entries in the "Evil Dead" franchise and Full Moon's "Puppet Master" and "Demonic Toys, Dollman, & Bad Channels" horror franchises, and the rights to the planned "Hack/Slash" TV series can be shared by Lionsgate, Sony, Paramount, New Line, Weinstein, Relativity and Rogue, Starz, Universal, and Full Moon, then there can be a "Hack/Slash" TV series, in addition to more entries in the previously mentioned franchises and epic crossover events.

Note: The timeline of the universe in which these take place should contain the events of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre"[1974], a remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2", and the upcoming prequel to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre"[1974] titled "Leatherface", "Halloween"[1978], "Halloween 2"[1981], "Halloween 3: Season of The Witch", "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers", a remake of "Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers", a remake of "Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers", "Halloween: H20", and "Halloween: Resurrection", the original "Friday The 13th"(excluding "Jason X") and "A Nightmare On Elm Street" film series, "Friday The 13th: The Series", the "Child's Play(Chucky)" film series, the original "Leprechaun" film series, the 1st-5th "Hellraiser" films, the "Re-Animator" film series, the "Phantasm" film series, the "Candyman" film series, the "Maniac Cop" film series, the "Silent Night, Deadly Night" film series, the "Darkman" film series, the "Wishmaster" film series, the "Annabelle"/"The Conjuring" film series, and the "Puppet Master" film series and the "Demonic Toys, Dollman, & Bad Channels" film series.

I realize that in "Halloween 3: Season of The Witch", an ad for "Halloween"[1978] is shown on TV, as is the film itself, but the in-universe explanation for that can be that the film that is advertised & shown on TV is based on the infamous events that took place in Haddonfield,Illinois on the night of Halloween in 1978, and that said film was released in 1980.

[…]

A song performed by Dokken and Alice Cooper titled "Nightmare Warriors" should be made for the "Freddy VS Jason VS Ash 2: The Nightmare Warriors" TV miniseries.

There should be a "Child's Play(Chucky)" & "Silent Night, Deadly Night" crossover film titled "Silent Night, Chucky Night". There should be a "Child's Play(Chucky)", "Puppet Master", & "Demonic Toys" crossover film titled "Chucky VS Puppet Master VS Demonic Toys".

SILENT NIGHT, CHUCKY NIGHT.

Years from now, there should be a 1-season-long TV series, which should be aired on the Starz TV channel, in which a mysterious extra-dimensional being with ties to Hell brings all the villain characters of these franchises together and forces them to fight each other in "Mortal Kombat"-style battles, and the surviving hero characters of these franchises are somehow brought into the situation.

Petition for a fighting game with just horror film characters.

I know you can play as Leatherface, Jason Voorhees, and Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat X, but I'm talking a Super Smash Bros. of horror cinema.

Disney is leaving money on the table by not commissioning a Marvel vs. Star Wars fighting game.

I'm a killing spree in white, eyes like broken Christmas lights

The URL is "millennials-hate-napkins."

Millennials are killing the paper napkin industry.

Younger consumers are opting instead for paper towels at the dinner table.

I'm pretty sure the paper napkin industry also makes paper towels.

Consumers view napkins as a less economical choice than paper towels. "It's one less thing to buy."

Also, paper towels are packaged tidily in a standardized roll. Napkins are a motley lot that can be a pain to organize neatly.

The Washington Post notes several other reasons for the decline of the napkin.

For one, paper towels are more functional than napkins, thanks to their ability to clean up messes of all sizes.

Ehhh… Napkins are as functional as paper towels. You can clean up messes of all sizes with napkins too, just like you can blow your nose with toilet paper, and wipe your butt with facial tissues.

Shit, you can blow your nose and wipe your butt with paper towels too – three less things to buy!

Additionally, the Post notes how fewer millennials are eating meals at home, which is also contributing to the decline of napkin purchases.

Does anyone buy drinking straws? If needed, I just grab some at Chick-fil-A (I like the quality of its straws).
