~The Butterfly Effect~

"Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?"

Yeah, if you haven't seen the film then watch it.
In a way it's like Shutter Island in that it really makes you question how your mind works and consequences of your actions and stuff.
But basically it was making me think and if you had the opportunity to go back into your childhood memories and change a bad experience into something positive, would you do it? And what would you do if you came back to the present and found out that your life might be better but someone else's was much, much worse?

If you had the chance would you make yourself unhappy so that others could be happy? Or would you be more concerned with fixing your own life first?

And most of all, would you sacrifice it all so that every single person in your life bar you had a better life?

I think I had a better point than that but I've forgotten what it was...

The idea in itself is pretty interesting though - something small leading to something huge. I wonder if life really works that way...


  1. I've always wanted to see this movie, because like you said it makes you think and it's intriguing.
    I might actually watch it tomorrow but my answer to your question which was most likely rhetorical but heyho would be, I would make myself unhappy to save others.

    The idea IS interesting, but if I'm honest, I don't think life could work in that way because it seems almost too simple. If you get me?

  2. watch it, watch it :)
    oh, and there's 4 endings so make sure you watch all of them :D they're all on youtube :)

    yeahh, i get what you mean, but you might change your mind after you see it. in that, it's not really as simple as it sounds... or as I made it sound... one of the two... I confused myself a bit so :p

  3. Lol, I'll watch it this week. Then I'll re comment. x
