Deadly sexy















Guns. Most people have pretty strong opinions either for or against them. Me? I'm kinda on the fence. On the one hand, I don't see any reason on God's green earth why anyone outside of active military or a member of the SWAT team needs an assault rifle. I mean, really? Are the deer THAT dangerous?


On the other hand... in the right setting, guns can be kinda sexy. I love that scene in "The Mummy" when Brendan Fraser and his French Foreign Legion buddies are about to get stomped Alamo-style by the desert army. He has a rifle, spare bullet clenched tightly in his very full lips; then he switches to pistols: two, of course. Out of ammo, he drops those and pulls two more out and keeps blasting away. Now, the fact that he is eight feet tall and drop dead gorgeous doesn't hurt, either. But doesn't every woman, uber liberated or no, like the idea that a man can protect her? Swoon!


Don't even get me started on Oded Fehr as Ardeth Bey, either. Whole other level of sexy there, people.


Also the only person [evvverrr] who can get away with having tattoos on his face.
