127 hours

Took me long enough to write something again. University sucks up my life like a vortex.

Anyways, it has come to my attention a movie has been made about Aron Ralston. If you do not know who Aron Ralston is, you need to reevaluate your life. I'm from Chile and I know who the guy is.

Aron Ralston, the living legend, was rock climbing, minding his own business, when a life threatening boulder fell and pinned his arm against the mountain walls. After struggling for days, he realized the boulder wasn't going going to budge. So what did he do? Did he just lay there awaiting his own death? Did he start crying like a little girl? HELL NO. Aron Ralston took out a pocket knife he had with him AND CUT OFF HIS OWN DAMN ARM. Just like that! Pow! He survived his predicament with one hell of a story to tell. If that isn't manly, I don't know what is.

Being the amazing man he is, a movie was made about the whole thing.

I haven't seen it yet. Here's hoping it does justice to Aron and his story.

PS: if you people already know all about the movie, remember I'm writing from a third world country. We have a huge lag regarding movie releases.
