A sinkhole to hell?

This thing scares the crap out of me.

I really hope it doesn't turn out to be the opening into a hellmouth where uber-vamps will come out and kill us all with their uber-vamp strength.  Seriously, those guys are unstoppable.  Except for when Buffy gets really really mad and needs to prove a point the the wannabe slayerettes.  Then they are stoppable.

You know, I've never really understood why it is that so often Buffy will almost be killed by something over and over again, and then all of a sudden she'll be like "this stops now" and then kills them really easily.  I mean, I know that anger boosts adrenaline and focus and can certainly help in a fight, but it's just a really drastic turning point, don't you think?  In an otherwise seamlessly realistic world, this is a glaring flaw.

PS: If you have no idea what I'm talking about here, watch season 7 of Buffy.  But first slap yourself in the face a few times and run around your block screaming "MY BRAIN IS SO STUPID FOR NOT WATCHING BUFFY ALL THE TIME!" and then watch all 7 seasons of Buffy and become totally obsessed with it until you refer to it constantly in day-to-day conversations.  If you feel awkward about doing this, ease yourself in by comparing people you see or interact with to various characters.  For example, someone who's mean could be called a Cordelia.  Someone who's really smart is a Willow, and a guy who's really really smart but also really cool and succeeds despite his slackerly attitude is an Oz.  Get it?  Good.

PPS: Oh yeah, and if you actually want to do something to help the people affected by this Guatemalan sink hole that's actually pretty serious and shouldn't be used as an in to stories about Buffy, go here to learn more and give some money.  Or really really sharp stakes for dusting those uber-vamps.
