Remember that thread talking about that Austrian sex slave girl?

And do you remember what I said?

I bet they're going to make millions off of the books, movies and television gigs.


And what people's responses were?

Even if that had a remote chance of possibly happening, no amount of money will ever replace 8 years of lost life, let alone the anguish for the family.

Unlikely. And even if they do, as has already been stated, it's not recompense for the 8 years she spent locked in some psycho dudes garage.


Well, god damn, I was right about everything.

Perhaps my terrible, cruel, materialistic, superficial, cynical, whatever you-want-to-call-it views on the world are right after all...

Well, I won't rub it in any more then I already have, just thought this would would bring up a nice discussion on how bleak existence is or whatever.

Umm.. congratulations on being right?

I take it that doesn't happen often?

Thank you.

But that's not really why I posted this.

Your point was to point out the occasionally sad things people do to make money as a way of suggesting existence is bleak?

Well... thanks for that. My existence is still pretty damned excellent, though, so I'm afraid your point is lost on me. Wink

Bullshit! You posted this thread to say "HA! TOLD YA SO!", but I don't think there is too much wrong with you doing so. I would have done the same thing, so for me to knock you would make me a hypocrite. My only beef is that if you're going to say 'I told you so' you should just say it and not beat around the bush.

for the record, beating around the bush is not an effective way to catch kittens who are hiding under said bush... it scares them under the car.

O-ho.

Well, for me, pleasure isn't much found in doing the whole "told ya so" online, I much rather enjoy it in real life where I can totally pester someone over it. (O God, actually feeling a person's emotions whilst standing next to them... Glorious.)

Still, I do find it elating when I "rub it in" a bit, even if it is online. But like I said, in the first post and this one, I'm not much interested in it at the moment.

I didn't read the whole article... did it mention the money making up for being locked up for 8 years, as your responders were saying?

That seems like a silly question... who wouldn't trade 8 years as a terrified sex slave for some money? Silly emu.

No, that'll come later with the drugs and alcohol and her diving headlong into various bacchanalian pursuits in a vain attempt to 're-capture' what she loss.

I for one thought the whole 'i told you so' aspect was countering the challenges about there being a movie, novel, mini-series, etc., not the lost childhood.

I did too. But I thought it was somewhat funny that the responders were focused on money not helping, and just shrugging off her original idea as "unlikely" and now she comes back "Tah-dahhhhhhh! I was right!", when they have probably recovered from the big, giant argument they seemed to have had about whether she would sell any rights.
