What Was Your Biggest Letdown When You Became an Adult? Here’s the Top Eight
What was your BIGGEST LETDOWN when you became an adult? Some of the more popular answers are: Having to pay for everything . . . missing your summer vacation . . . still getting pimples . . . and all the stress and cost that comes with owning a house.
1. You have to pay for EVERYTHING . . . even the stuff you didn’t know about, like insurance.
2. You miss having an entire summer vacation.
3. Just because you have a salary doesn’t mean you have a ton of money to spare. You can’t just throw a thousand dollars around without thinking about it.
4. You don’t stop having pimples.
5. You don’t automatically become wise, mature, or rational.
6. Having your own house isn’t as cool as it sounds. The buying process is horrible, things are constantly breaking, and the whole thing costs a fortune.
7. Even though you can buy and eat anything you want, you feel sick and get chubby if you eat a whole box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch every day.
8. You realize how much your parents did for you, what an INGRATE you were . . . and no matter what you do now, you can’t fully make up for it. (Reddit)

Police Call Off a Massive Hunt For a Dead Body in L.A. . . . When They Realize It’s Just a Large “Simpsons” Doll
We don’t have a ton of details on this, but we really like the details we DO have. Yesterday afternoon, a report went out on the police scanner in Los Angeles that a DEAD BODY was spotted in bushes along the side of a freeway.
There was a lot of area to cover, so the LAPD started a massive hunt for the dead body. They even called in air support to help the search.
But it was all called off less than an hour later, when the officers found out it WASN’T a dead body . . . it was just a, quote, “large ‘Simpsons’ doll in the bushes.” Unfortunately, we don’t know which “Simpsons” character it was. (RMG News)

10 Year Flashback: Who Will Be the Next Batman? . . . and Flash-Forward to Today’s Perspective on the Christian Bale Trilogy
Our Flashback section features a story we were talking about on The Complete Sheet 10 years ago to this day. We’ve also added some modern perspective to give these stories some context today.
Flashback to 2003: Who Will Be the Next Batman?
Several actors are being called in to test for the lead role in the upcoming “Batman” movie . . . and some of them are pretty bizarre.
Topping that list would be the BUBBLE BOY himself, JAKE GYLLENHAAL. And he’s apparently the FRONT RUNNER.
We’re also hearing rumors about Billy Crudup, Joshua Jackson, Christian Bale, Cillian Murphy, and Henry Cavill.
Today’s Perspective . . . Jake Gyllenhaal Did Not Get the Part
Jake Gyllenhaal has come a long way since he was the BUBBLE BOY . . . but that path didn’t include a stint as Batman.
Obviously, Christian Bale got the part and starred in all three parts of the most recent Batman trilogy.
It’s worth mentioning that Cillian Murphy played The Scarecrow, who was one of the villains in “Batman Begins”. And Henry Cavill did EVENTUALLY get a superhero role, as Superman in “Man of Steel”.
Oh, and let’s not forget that we already have yet another new Batman. And his name is BEN AFFLECK.
