I wonder, have you ever noticed this?

The Movie Encyclopedia
Received this from Mountain Wings in my e-mail.

There are some things in life that you would never know if it weren't for Hollywood.

A great movie – "The Family Man" Every married man with kids should see this.

Without The Movies you wouldn't know this:

** During all police investigations, it will be necessary to visit a strip club at least once.

** When they are alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English to each other.

** If being chased through town, you can usually take cover in a passing St. Patrick's Day parade - at any time of year.

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

** The Chief of Police will almost always suspend his star detective - or give him 48 hours to finish the job.

** All grocery bags contain at least one stick of French Bread.

** It's easy for anyone to land a plane providing there is someone to talk you down.

** The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place - no one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building undetected.

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

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

** All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red readouts so you know exactly when they are going to go off.

** If you need to reload your gun, you will always have more ammunition, even if you haven't been carrying any before now.

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

** Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to speak the language - a German accent will do.

** If your town is threatened by an imminent natural disaster or killer beast, the mayor's first concern will be the tourist trade or his forthcoming art exhibition.

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

** When paying for a taxi, don't look at your wallet as you take out a bill - just grab one at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

** Kitchens don't have light switches. When entering a kitchen at night, you should open the fridge door and use that light instead.

Aren't those the truth when it comes to movies! LOL

Playing catch up all night...and then I will sleep all day! What a life, huh? LOL

Been laid up with bursitis in a knee and now have phlebitis in the other leg! Can't win! LOL

How's your weather there? I've read on some blogs where Arkansas is in a big ice storm right now. Hope we don't get it here. It is supposed to spread into western NC, so it could possible affect our area here in Upstate SC. Hope not!

((( HUGS )))

It is so true. I hate it when a movie is so predictable.
Whoever took the time to ponder this, has too much time on their hands. I'm jealous!!

Hi Patty,

These were funny!

We have been under a major ice and snow storm, and it continues well into tomorrow. We lost power once already, but it came back on for now. I don't know for how long. No power, no Internet, of course, although my laptop does have battery power, but you know how that goes. Hope the weather is better in your area. Take care and stay safe and warm.

Love,

Renie

That is so funny! And when you think about it they are all true. I have always said that about the gun and bullet routine. And the fighting is just down right crazy...

WOW Ma'am ... how exact can one be? Very truly told and very exactly depicted ...

I liked the following the most:

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


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

** When paying for a taxi, don't look at your wallet as you take out a bill - just grab one at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

** Kitchens don't have light switches. When entering a kitchen at night, you should open the fridge door and use that light instead.
