What if we had to learn everything we know from TV and movies? If that were the case, then we’d assume-
- All phone numbers in America begin with 555 (The entertainment industry decided to use 555 as the beginning digits for all phone numbers because viewers were memorizing the phone numbers from movies and dialing them)
- All grocery shopping bags have at least one stick of French bread in them
- When paying for a taxi, there is no need to look at your wallet as you take out a bill. Just grab one at random and give it to the driver. It will always be the exact fare.
- Anyone waking from a nightmare will bolt upright in bed and pant.
- Even when driving on a perfectly straight road, it is necessary to turn the steering wheel vigorously from left to right every few seconds.
- The Eiffel Tower can be seen from every window in Paris.
- All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red readouts so you know exactly when the’re going to explode.
- Any lock can be picked with a credit card in seconds….unless it’s the door to a burning building with a child trapped inside.
- It’s always possible to park directly outside the building you want to enter.
- Cars that crash will almost always burst into flames.
- TV news bulletins always contain a story that affects you personally at the precise moment you turn the TV on.
- Anyone can land a plane if there’s someone in the control tower to talk the person down.
- There are no light switches in kitchens. When entering a kitchen at night, you should stumble around until you open the fridge door and use that light instead.
- A detective can only solve a case after he’s been suspended from duty.
- It doesn’t matter if you’re 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’ve knocked out their predecessors.
Found this in my devotional book….and thought it was amazing…. 😀
