26 things the movies have taught us.

26 things the movies have taught us.
1. Large, loft-style apartments in New York City are well within the price range of most people - whether they are employed or not.

2. At least one of a pair of identical twins is born evil.

3. Should you decide to defuse a bomb, don't worry which wire to cut. You will always choose the right one.

4. Most laptop computers are powerful enough to override the communications system of any invading alien society.

5. It does not matter if you are heavily outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts; your enemies will wait patiently to attack you one by one dancing around in a threatening manner until you have knocked out their predecessors.

6. When you turn out the light to go to bed, everything in your bedroom will still be clearly visible, just slightly bluish.

7. If you are a blonde and pretty, it is possible to become a world expert on nuclear fission at the age of 22.

8. Honest and hardworking policemen are traditionally gunned down three days before their retirement.

9. Rather than wasting bullets, megalomaniacs prefer to kill their archenemies using complicated machinery involving fuses, pulley systems, deadly gasses, lasers, and man eating sharks, which will allow their captives at least 20 minutes to escape.

10. All beds have special L-shaped cover sheets that reach the armpit level on a woman, but only to the waist level on the man lying beside her.

11. All grocery shopping bags contain at least one stick of French bread.

12. It's easy for anyone to land a plane, provided there is someone in the control tower.

13. Once applied, lipstick will never rub off - even while scuba diving.

14. You're very likely to survive any battle in any war unless you make the mistake of showing someone a picture of your sweetheart back home.

15. Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German or Russian officer, it will not be necessary to speak the language. A German or Russian accent will do.

16. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window in Paris.

17. A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating, but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.

18. If a large pane of glass is visible, someone will be thrown through it before long.

19. If staying in a haunted house, women should investigate any strange noise in their most revealing underwear.

20. Word processors never display a cursor on the screen but will always say: "Enter password now."

21. Even when driving down a perfectly straight road, it is necessary to turn the steering wheel vigorously from left to right every few moments.

22. All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red readout's so you know exactly when they're going to go off.

23. A detective can only solve a case once he has been suspended from duty.

24. If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you meet will know all the steps.

25. Police departments give their officers personality tests to make sure they are deliberately assigned a partner who is the total opposite.

26. When they are alone, all foreign military officers prefer to speak to each other in English.

27.  When someone gets shot with a 9mm bullet, their entire body is launched into the air and shoved backwards 3 feet.

28.  When someone gets shot with a 44 magnum bullet (ie, "Dirty Harry" revolver), their entire body is launched into the air and shoved backwards 10 feet.

29.  When the "punk" says he "feels lucky", he never is.

30.  Guns don't kill people. Chuck Norris kills people.

32. The unlovable, vulnerable, doltish, and expendable dweeb is compelled to go down into the basement to see....whatever it is that's making the eerie violin music.

33. The protagonist almost always lives, but is beaten to within an inch of his life first, then miraculously develops herculean strength and wins the day with a well-placed punch.

34.  In knock 'em down, drag 'em out fights, real slugfests, both parties can resort to handy rods and wooden bats, and sustain multiple fractures and concussions in succession within the first two minutes.  Then, see #33 above.

35.  That clumsy girl ALWAYS trips!!!!  Often going down stairs to investigate the basement noises, or when fleeing from whatever she sees down there.

36.  Walking backwards toward or around corners in terrifying circumstances usually is the wisest method of perambulation.

37.  The super-powerful creatures seem to have to get their hands on their victims rather than just using the same psycho-kinetic powers that allow them get ahead of you...around that pesky corner.

38.  It's late, dark, and rainy.  Oh, and in a back lane or alley.  And the person walking there is female and alone.  Ssooooo              alooooooone.  There's usually a startling encounter with a cat that likes the rain.

Should I go on?

39.  Shootouts in all westerns prove beyond doubt that 6-shot revolvers can keep on shootin' for a minimum of 16 rounds without a need to reload.

40. In Westerns prior to 1970, the Indians were "savage, wild killers" and the "cowboy" or "homesteader" was always pure, honest and just trying to raise a family on the American frontier.  After 1970, Indians were the reasonable, thoughtful and kind-hearted underdog who were constantly being run off their land by evil, ruthless, power-hungry soldiers.

41.  In Star Trek, it's a very, very dangerous thing to tempt fate and wear a red shirt.  Yellow is the preferred color in just about all cases of alien encounters.

42.  The Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything.

RE: 26 things the movies have taught us.
Too-funny yup. Haven't watched any movie in 25 years but sounds like what I remember.

FWIW stupidest movie I ever saw was "Terror Squad".

Stupid Stuff in this movie as I recall:
Bus changes length in various scenes, long outside view = short bus, guy running down aisle = a very lllooooonnnnggg bus!

Pedestrian ran over in chase scene in town 1, seconds later same guy on sidewalk in town 2. I think same thing happened for a car also.

Showing police officer driving in that chase scene, focus on his feet operating pedals in car, sound of accelerating while pushing brake pedal while running over pedestrian from above. Or vice versa on pedal/action, not sure which is accurate.

Bad sync of audio and video AKA seeing them say it then hearing it. So bad at times they're talking about one thing but the visual scene has already progressed to whatever's next. Bad sync of kung fu to the extreme!

Probably lots of other stuff but memory at it's limit. That movie was NOT supposed to be a comedy Dave. Why are you laughing? My answer is see above.

43. It's not sudden deceleration from terminal velocity that kills you but only impact with the ground.

44. Gasoline vapor is not flammable or explosive. A flame can safely be held near a gasoline soaked person indefinitely.

45. Cars always explode in a serious collision.

Metro or Greyhound buses can take a 90 degree turn at over 55 MPH without crashing.

One NEVER EVER gets into a fight without theme music.

Scary things happen with scary music forewarning of impending doom, death, or running and tripping then dying.
