Prepare for your mind to be blown

Postby EC8CH » Sun Mar 24, 2013 2:11 pm

Throughout the movie Big Trouble in Little China the search for balance is discussed: Wang's emotions, the opposing furies, Lo Pan's curse. This concept of balance, of yin and yang, is central to the plot of the movie, but what you may not have realized is that the movie BTILC opened on July 2nd!

What's the big deal about July 2nd you might ask??? July 2nd is the exact middle of the Gregorian calendar. There are 182 days before it, and 182 days after it. It is the day at the center of the calendar, upon which every other day balances perfectly.

I personally consider July 2nd to be BTILC Day. The day where everything is in perfect balance, which allowed for the greatest movie of all time to be released upon this earth.

But maybe you're still not convinced... maybe you think this is just some kind of coincidence??? Well then my friend, this next July 2nd try the following and see what happens:

Step 1: Watch Big Trouble in Little China
Step 2: Down a shot of six demon bag
Step 3: Chop a bottle in half with a big a$$ machete

After you recover from your mind being blown, just remember.... it's all in the reflexes.
Fine I'm back I'm ready god damn it let me at 'em.

*BLANK STARES*

Or else give me another glass of this stuff and turn on the ballgame.

This can only mean one thing. Lo Pan is clearly behind leap year. All part of his plan to unbalance the heroes. ;)

There you have it then. Make sure your guard is up July 2nd every leap year. Keep your green eyed daughters close that night.

Thank you for pointing out the astrological significance of July 2nd. This shall for me as well become BTILC Day. Surely, the Gods have ordained it thus.
