I love how people are so blown away that Amazon doesn't want to pull this down that they are closing their accounts. 
 
People on the internet are so fucking smart.

I think the point everyone seems to be missing is this: 
 
Who the fuck cares what Iced Tea has to say?

" Yeah, movies usually can move me pretty close to tears, but none have conquered my macho man no-tear-barrier. I saw the way things were headed in Marley and Me, and screw that, I just flat out stopped watching. "  
 
The only wise decision one can make with that movie.

@Bloviator: It's the song that did it for me. I get emotionally charged anytime I hear it and there it was being used very effectively.

Marley and Me will fuck your shit up if you've ever owned a dog. 
 
But the very last movie that made me tear up was P.S. I Love You. When they played that Flogging Molly song I lost my shit.

" Slaughterhouse five is a great shoe novel full of depth that's an east read and simply great. Crime and punishment might be a hadrewd but let me assure you that it will be worth it, kite runner is an instant classic, only 10 years old and deals with many of the issues we still face today "
Easily the best book out of that whole Russian classics era. At the very least the most influential.

" Ah, so I need a book to read for my English class, and I was going to read "Hells Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga" by Hunter S. Thompson but since I checked it out so early in the semester that its due yesterday, and I can't renew it since someone else has it on hold. I'm a fan of Hunter S. Thompson, and I sort of like Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, and besides that I pretty much read comics. But this isnt comicvine. So, any suggestions?  I'm thinking about reading Fight Club or American Psycho, but i'm not sure yet.    Although I suppose in retrospect I sort of like stories about very boring everyman type of apathetic people who kind of end up losing their shit (I.E., Fight Club Narrator) but arent terribly sure where to look to find similar books. "

"Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" by Haruki Murakami 
 
Overlooked Cyberpunk novel by Japanese author about a nameless businessman losing his shit. Kinda exactly what you are looking for methinks. 
 
Edit: You have plenty of time to read Kurt Vonnegut, don't overload on him now. Just a suggestion. But don't read Slaughterhouse Five first, Sirens of Titan is his best book. 
 
Also read anything by Terry Pratchett.

You might get some grief for naming Dissidia but I'll back you up on that. A surprisingly deep fighting game that just happens to have androgynous Final Fantasy characters.

Either way, that dude in the Ad is undressing me with his eyes.

Classmates.com has been around since 1995.  You're about 10 years off. "
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2003325519_adcouple27.html  
 
This article pegs the add at around 2003. So more like 2 years off. 
 
 http://www.infoworld.com/t/business/how-classmatescom-got-its-15-million-paying-members-210 
 
And this one seems to indicate that in 2002 Classmates.com was using Text based adds. 
 
Just saying.
