This is a Post about Fahrenheit 451

Oh, hello there. Why yes, I am posting a blog entry on time. Thank you for noticing.

So let’s cut down to the straight skinny; Fahrenheit 451. And right away I can tell you this will be the most difficult blog entry I will ever have to do. No, not because I didn’t read it, and no not because it’s uninteresting. It’s because I can’t spell the word Fahrenheit correctly, even if my life depended on it. In fact, for every instance that I’ve used THE WORD so far, I’ve spelled it wrong.

Therefore, from this moment on, instead of calling it Fahrenheit 451 (and yes, I did just misspell it), I will hereby refer to the book as The Word 451. Just roll with me here, okay?

No, not this kind of roll.

Actually, I’ve already read the whole book already, which is a really bad habit of mine. I end up forgetting everything that happens and fail the quizzes. But throwing that point aside, it is a good book. I don’t want to talk about my opinions though. I want to talk about other people’s opinions, because I’m pretentious and stupid like that.

Okay, so after I finished the book, I wanted to see what other people thought without spoiling the book for everyone else, so naturally I googled it.

Ah, man's best friend.

After reading what a few others think about the relationship between Clarisse and Guy I was just…well…stumped. It seems as though some people are absolutely convinced that Guy is in love with her and would gladly dump Mildred to have kids and a happy life forever and ever with her.


Just because two characters of different sexes speak to each other it DOES NOT MEAN THEY WILL HOOK UP.

"You are a man and I am a woman, therefore we must be in love."

This doesn’t just go for The Word 451, this goes for everything. It’s really annoying sometimes, especially when they have zero chemistry but people still insist that they should go and have babies.

But I digress. There’s another topic I wanted to discuss, anyways; those television rooms.

In any other situation, people would call that really pathetic. Think about it, if someone you knew came up to you and told you that his or her family rested within a room with a bunch of giant screens, would you call that okay? In other words, would you look at that person and say, “I find that socially acceptable.”

"Look! It's a room filled with all of my friends!"

I know that it’s supposed to be all futuristic and whatnot, but I don’t ever recall this being something that is considered normal. Ever. Not even in the history books; and that’s saying a lot, seeing as though people back then could be pretty stupid.

I mean, if you wrote with your left hand they would call you a witch. Nowadays, you can use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter all you want and not even have to be burned at the stake for it.

What is this black magic?

EDIT: Hey guys, just checked up on my blog stats and I realized that I have over 1,000 views for all time. For this, we shall all celebrate. My house, 7 o’ clock. Be there.

  1. I can’t believe it’s not butter: WITCHCRAFT!
    And I enjoyed reading this book again as i had totally different views and opinions, and missed a whole buncha symbols and metaphors and stuff I did not catch the first time I read it

  2. You should do this as a job someday, but anyway i agree with the fact that it is kind of riduclous that people think that they are in love. I mean look what happened in 1984.

  3. I love all of the pictures you post Marri! & I completely agree on the TV room thing. Great post girl!

  4. WOW MARRI YOU BLOG IS AMAZING 0-0. I love how you connected things in the book to real life things like I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter – Like how did you even think about that? AMAZING

  5. I love the pictures and I didn’t notice all the metaphors.

    Congratulations on 1000 views.

  6. I can’t believe it’s not butter either.. (;
    . . .I’ve always wanted a room full of television screens to become my best friends. ]:< Way to make me feel socially accepted.
    HAHA, I'm just kidding.

    & Congradulations on 1000 viewss !

    Great post! It was very funny indeed! Your pictures are hysterical! Before I read the post I scrolled down to see all the pictures, and I was thinking there is no way all these pictures relate to the blog! Yet they did, snaps for you!
