Cheap Chuck Ripoff.

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I wonder if you sycophant muppets can answer me a question (good setup G). In the film of Fight Club there is a scene where the protagonist beats himself up and thus gets corporate sponsorship. Is this in the book? Been a while since I read it. In the movie of Class of 1984 (which I just watched again), which came out in 1982, there is a scene EXACTLY like the one in the movie where a guy beats himself up and then smears his blood on the hand of the guy (EXACT same scene) who is supposed to have assaulted him. So I wonder...who ripped of whom? Palahniuk or Fincher? Both?

Just curious.
