If anyone can pool/dedicate some resources, especially on the torrent scene, make a film all about the color grey (and it's benefits in art; talk about complementary colors and how they make grey, and so on) as an instruction film about art, and call that Fifty Shades of Gray (A far less misleading title. Also, the spelling should be enough to stay relatively legal (either way, it'll brew trouble; mostly pissed off fans not getting what they were expecting), unless they're willing to be assholes about it; which is usually the case on basis of "Copyright"), and replace all torrents with the actual movie with this one.

Instead of an "art film" (BS excuse usually given by the vocal minority (e.g.-the fans that actually think this is empowering)) you actually get an art lesson (learn something, for real).

EDIT:
Add fuel to the potential fire; advertise the color grey with erotic undertones to further mislead the masses into education via torrent. Expect the movie, instead, you get an art lesson. How will Hollywood react to this? Take down a misleading educational torrent (with the same name, different spelling) for a movie you wouldn't want torrented anyway?

EDIT EDIT:
I can't believe this came to mind, but I sense incoming alien-based erotica-parody using the same title as well. Same concept, but this time a Gray is subject to all the abuse. We call them the lost files from Area 51; or Operation: 50 Shades of Gray.

Is bowing to people when you say thank you or you're welcome really that weird? Because apparently lots of people think it is...

That sounds like something The Asylum would do to me, with their penchant for mockbusters. :P

Why can't they make a movie out of one of the classics, like Venus in Furs
What, is seven adaptations so far not enough? The last one by Polanski just two years ago.

I bow slightly when I say thank you, and I'm American.

... Come to think of it, I'm not sure why I do. Nobody taught me to, and nobody I know does it. It just feels natural, I guess.

Females usually bow a bit when saying sawasdee in Thailand, so I sometimes bow just to mess with people.

I nod my head at people I know, or to acknowledge people.  I learned to do it while bicycling, where it's an easily recognizable gesture (partially due to the helmet, also because exaggerated motions are necessary on the road).

I've tried bowing my upper body slightly but it feels awkward since nobody else I know does.  I think it's a neat sign of respect, but not enough to go against the tide.  Head-nodding is a perfect middle ground.  A very subtle nod is perfect in normal situations, too, since people focus on faces.

Yeah, I do the head-nodding thing too. I haven't noticed that many other people doing it, though.

I also do the hand gesture thing. I nod my head at people, and incline my head slightly when I say thank you. Sort of a small nod.

A thing happened today.

My specific thought of the situation was:

  'On a scale of 1 - screwed, that was a 7 or so.  All in all, not too bad.'  :-\
