There's always, ALWAYS, a parking space right outside the building that the person wants to visit.

They take someone's spine out? :shock: That's what you get when actors pretend to be doctors :lol:


e.e

My bad...I meant splinectomy.

For a spleen. But I want to see ER where they remove someone's spine by mistake, that's a great plot twist. :D

Any soldier that goes for a pee in the bushes will get killed.

Or if they are going to get married.

My kids and I used to play an informal game while watching movies. Spot the walking dead. :lol:

"I'll bet there's not a Jap around here for miles!"

DEAD

"I got a letter from my girl, we're getting married when I go on leave!"

DEAD

"I'm just going into the bushes for a pee!"

DEAD :lol:

EVERY single nature show.... starts off with soft little animals and birds being born.... awwwwwwww.... they show the devoted parent bird/animal.... there are sooooooooooooo cute..... they let kids get so attached.... and in the second half..... you JUST KNOW.... there is one of "Natures Preditors" lurking.... "But in June, the killer whales migrate to the south....." and then the killing begins.... and you have a kid horror stricken, and bawling in your arms.

Any movie with a sailing ship, you can be sure there will be at least one storm at sea.

Every time I see this topic my brain immediately kicks in and sings in Fred Astaire´s voice..."when you daance with meeee..."

Sorry,had to say that.

Erm,where was I,ah yes...

And every bomb due to explode always have a very nice,big display so everyone can see the seconds ticking down...

And the wires that have to be cut are always easily acessible,no scews or bolts,or,if there are,there is always the screwdiver lying there,

and the wires are easily distinguishable from all others,and no matter who looks in there,even if it´s the cleaning lady,he or she will automatically know which one is the right one to cut.

That always used to get me as a kid.I used to think."Blimey,if I ever have to stop a bomb from going off,I hope I´ll find the right wires like that woman!"
:shock:

On the subject of bombs...

The bombers never build anti-interference measures into their bombs, such as trembler switches, secondary detonators, x-ray sensitive triggers, a pressure pad wired to to the detonator or any one of a dozen sly and nasty ways to kill the person attempting to disarm it. There's a reason real life bomb disposal experts clear the area and force a detonation, you know.

Also, terrorist bombers never score an 'own goal'. Think of all those times you've improvised with your cooking. Now think of all the times that improvisation went horribly wrong. Now, imagine improvising with explosives...

When bombs do go off, most humans can run faster than superheated air travelling at hundreds of miles per hour and never have all of the air sucked out of their lungs by the vacuum created by the air becoming superheated in the first place.

Leaving bombs alone for a moment, but sticking with action oriented films and shows:

The "secret" part of secret agent is optional. Just ask Bond, James Bond.

With the exception of Jason Bourne, no-one seems to know how to fight properly.

Cars are made out of dynamite, judging by how often they explode violently.

Being shot in a limb doesn't really hurt at all. Tie a bit of cloth around the wound and you'll be fine.

This is not what actually happens in the movie or tv program but;

When watching, the phone nearly always rings about ten minutes before its due to end. Or a friend decides that it is a good time to 'pop in for a cuppa'. Or in really extreme cases - both! :roll:
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

OOOOhhhh yesss,Pens,and on that topic I might add chidren burstin in at any inopportune moment,
for instance,a very violent scene you don´t want them to see..."Wow,cool,what did he just do with that sword?Phoar,look at all that blood!!Ceddie,come and see all this blood!!!",

or the scene where they finally get each other after trying to avoid each other like hell for 80 minutes:"Why is that man sticking his tongue into that womans mouth mummy?Why isn´t she being sick?Did Daddy ever do yukky things like that to you?"

or the scene where they have to part against all obvious odds:"Why are you crying,Mum?You didn´t cry when Dad moved out,did you?Well,did you?"
To the point where you decide to simply switch it off and find out if there is a repeat due maybe at one o´clock in the morning.
:lol:

@ DAnny: Why do you know your way around bombs so well,Danny?You do a lot of disarming bombs regularly?
:shock: :shock:

- Despte bombs being so obvious a blind, druken sheep could spot one and stop it, they are never noticed. To the extent that someone standing at a bus stop for three hours, never getting a bus, in the world's most obvious bomb jacket, loudly sobbing about his approaching death into a mobile goes unnoticed. DURING A BOMB SCARE.

:?

- (A watching thing) Everything makes sense while you're watching the show and after you've been watching it for a long time....then you start explaining it to someone else and.....wow... Did it ever really mke sense "And then he realizes that the spaceship's not real because there are no engines running.....wait.....spaceships don't need engines running all the time..........."
*awkward silence*

- People have awesomeness field within which everything is possible. Why is there a severed head in the fride? The fridge belongs to SHERLOCK FREAKING HOLMES! Done. Why is it safe to shoot stetsons of people's heads? RIVER FREAKING SONG is doing the shooting!

I'm going to need a swat team, ready to mobilize, street maps covering the whole of florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and A FEZ.
