Bram StokerIn 1897, a great Irishman by the name Abraham Stoker(1844-1912) wrote the novel Dracula. This was the building blocks for vampire culture.Bram Stoker5 years ago in Stories & Vignettes
Even as a child Bram had a wild imagination and was fed on the rich culture of Ireland. Some of the stories of banshees, hearing their terrible cry would foresee a terrible and often brutal death, merrows, sea monsters who upturned fishing boats and eat the fishermen inside, Phookas, creatures who cause havoc and chaos to those who eat the spoilt blackberries in November and Kelpies, who would drag innocents to their watery grave.

EPIC RAP BATTLES OF HISTORY!
My name is Bram Stoker
I got a bone to pick with you
This battle will be just like your pathetic career
Over! Finished! Through! You hear?!
I see the way you portray vampires in everyone of your novels
So why don't you take a fucking break and go hit the bottle? [shows a bottle of whiskey]
You're an overweight Poe wannabe who can't write for shit
You wouldn't know vampiric literature
If it bit you on your sagging tits
I immortalized Dracula
You concieved Sparkletards
And now you're convinced Bella gets your male readers hard?
You wrote porn for lonely girls
My work struck terror and fear
Your Twat-Light saga will be gone and forgotten in the coming years...
I'm sorry, Grandpa, were you talking to me?
Oh, that's right, it was just nonsensical yammering
I'm rich and famous and well-known world wide
Team Edward or Jacob... Bram, pick a side

Sometimes, we learn things from movies; how to comfort others when they're sad, how to fight off the bad guys, or how to woo the ladies (or guys, I don't judge). But sometimes, movies present important lessons that one has to question on a regular basis whether the lessons these movies teach are good messages. So, in an effort to point out these lessons, as well as to make people crack up, here are the lessons I learned from attaching Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 film adaptation of the classic novel, "Bram Stoker's Dracula."
Be Warned, spoilers ahead if you haven't seen the movie or read the book.
-If you're going to battle in the Crusades, wear a fashionable costume that looks like it doesn't really block attacks.
-If you get an arrow into your bedroom that says your fiance is dead, instantly believe it instead of doing the reasonable thing and just sending a messenger to confirm.
-Make sure when you commit suicide by jumping into the river, you keep your suicide note dry.
