Hey, I'm not sure if you realize this, but it's election day! Don't forget. No one is really talking about it on Facebook or Tumblr or Twitter or their blogs or even in real life, though who gets their news from real life anymore, amirite? Nothing ever happens in real life before it happens on the internet. It's true facts! I hardly ever get spoiled for TV shows in real life, it always happens when I innocently check Facebook after watching Dexter but before having watched Walking Dead and getting VICIOUSLY HORRIBLY SPOILED ABOUT SOMETHING TERRIBLE AND BRUTAL AND WHYYYYYYYYYY SHOW WHYYYYYYYY?
Still. I wasn't really mad, though this was a big, giant spoiler. I'm pretty meh about most spoilers. My thinking is, if the show has aired or the movie's been released, it's my responsibility to avoid all spoilers, which I can usually pretty easily do by staying off of the internet. Since I find staying off the internet to be an impossible task, however, I get spoiled a lot. But I'm fine with it.
This is not to say that everyone has to share my view about spoilers. I don't expect them to! I would never automatically start talking about something crazy that happened on Dexter last night without having asked if you've seen it first. That is a total dick move. (Sidebar: ask Joe sometime how he got spoiled for The Avengers at TCAF because he is still bitter about that.) I try not to post anything spoilery on Twitter or Facebook in case someone might accidentally see it. But if it happens, I'm sorry, you're going to be fine. Scientists say so.
It is a total bummer, though, in certain cases. If anyone had spoiled Lost for me, I would have probably straight up murdered them in the face. Same deal with the last Harry Potter. Or any Harry Potters, really. So I guess it's good that no one spoiled me or I'd be writing this from prison right now and if I was in prison right now I wouldn't have gotten to vote AWW YEAH FOOLS THIS POST JUST WENT FULL CIRCLE WHAAAAAAAAAT.
