Things We've Learned From The Movies,

Part 1...

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

8. Honest and hard working 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. During all police investigations, it will be necessary to visit a strip club at least once.

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

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

13. It's easy for anyone to land a plane providing there is someone in the control tower to talk you down.

Yes they're all true.


You can drive a car looking at and conversing with the passenger next to you without looking where you are going for at least 10 minutes and you never crash the car.

Heroes can get dragged through a hedge backwards and come out of it without a hair out of place and a speck of dirt on them.

It's always summer and the sun always shines in English films.

Well, mine usually do! ;)

By the way, I was looking at the photographs on your template. You had a dog that lived 22 years?!!! Wow, impressive. I think 17 y is the most any of our dogs ever lived. I'm not sure because one of two were adopted so we don't know how old they were.
