it was whiskey.
Or if you go to the movies with some vampires, they might be like, "Hey, let's go see that new RomCom. All us vampires love
RomComs," and then when you buy the tickets they'll be like, "Why'd you buy tickets to a RomCom?
" Then you'll be like, "I thought you guys said you're all really into RomComs!" and they'll be like, "Pfff... dude, we're vampires
. You think
are into RomComs? Whatever, man. Just go get us some popcorn." Then when you get back with the popcorn they won't even eat any, or they'll say they only like their popcorn when it has blood on it or whatever.
I guess what I'm trying to say is "vampires are assholes."
Vampire Fact #4: They like to hang out under bridges.
A lot of people like to hang out in bars and coffee shops. Homeless people hang out underneath highway overpasses. Children and pedophiles hang out near playgrounds, nerds hang out at the library, and recent immigrants go to these things called "cultural centers" that smell like weird meat and hold crappy dance parties on the weekends that you probably don't want to attend. Vampires are different, though, and unlike most of us, they prefer the homey atmosphere that only the underside of a suspension bridge can provide - preferably one with a freight train passing directly overhead.
While unbelievably dangerous to the average mortal, dangling over a foggy, bottomless abyss provides the kind of "extreme" thrill that creatures of the night go, ahem,
for. It's reckless, it's death-defying, and perhaps best of all, it puts them closer to that one thing vampires love most of all: a metric buttload of fog.
Vampire Fact #5: It's really easy to become one.
Common sense dictates that in order to become a vampire you must be bitten by one first. This is a common misconception, though, and while being bitten by a vampire certainly won't hurt
your chances of becoming one, taking a swig of blood out of a rhinestone-encrusted 40 oz. bottle is probably an easier - and more pleasant - way of going about it.
Of course, some questions remain unanswered: Is the blood in the bottle a special, sacred ritual-type of blood, or just plain old O+? Does it need to be given to you by a vampire, and if so, does it need to be in a rhinestone-encrusted 40 oz. bottle? Can you mix it with something? What kind of booze goes with blood?

Vampire Fact #6: They enjoy killing people.
Drinking blood out of a rhinestone-encrusted 40 oz. bottle is all well and good for ritual purposes, but it's a pale substitute for the real thing: fresh blood drained from a bunch of drunk party animals, preferably while they're listening to Aerosmith and spraying beer around a beachside bonfire.
But why limit yourself to the jugular vein? It may be a quick and easy way to feed, but it's also a bit tired and predictable, no? Traditions were made to be broken, and as a vampire who may very well live forever, you should do everything in your power to switch it up and keep things fresh. Why not try the Kiefer Sutherland approach (as demonstrated at 0:52) and simply bite through your victims' skulls? Remember: there's blood in there!
Vampire Fact #7: They can really do a number on your plumbing.
While the vampire's internal chemistry hasn't been studied extensively, there are clearly a number of significant physiological differences between them and mere mortals to bear in mind. For example, while the average person might describe being dunked into a bathtub full of garlic and holy water as "unpleasant" or "another day, another garlic-and-holy-water bath" (again, this all depends on who you ask), they probably aren't going to react particularly strongly to it. Vampires, on the other hand, will emit a bloodcurdling scream, their flesh will melt, blood will shoot out of all of your sinks and pipes, and your toilet will violently explode for no good reason whatsoever.
With that being said, you may want to avoid this method of vampire slaying altogether unless it can be executed in a kiddie pool in the backyard, or somewhere else that isn't hooked up to your house's pipes. After all, in these tough economic times, who wants to have to hire a plumber to scrape melted vampire out of their pipes?
Vampire Fact #8: Even vampires cry.
While they may be terrifying, aggressive, dangerous creatures of the night, it's important to remember that inside of every vampire is the tattered remains of the man he left behind (or woman, I guess, but let's face it - vampirism in 'The Lost Boys' is pretty much a total sausage party). And inside the man that's inside the vampire is a little boy, a scared little boy who lost his mommy and bursts into flames whenever he comes into contact with direct sunlight.
When dealing with a vampire encounter, it's important to keep this in mind and act accordingly. Start by calling him a "big boy," then offer him $5 to rake your leaves. Offer to give him some chocolate cake, too. Oh - and then when he's not looking, impale him on a wooden stake so that he dies. That's not a little boy - that's A FUCKING VAMPIRE!
