Random Musings

Things That Happen Only In Movies..

Here is a list of 40 things that happen only in movies. Some of my favs below..

4. Creepy music (or satanic chanting) coming from a graveyard should always be closely investigated.

7. All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red digital displays so you know exactly when they are going to explode.

17. If you are heavily outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts, your opponents will wait patiently to attack you one by one by dancing around you in a threatening manner until you have defeated their predecessor.

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

26. Prostitutes always look like Julia Roberts or Jamie Lee Curtis. They have expensive clothes and nice apartments but no pimps. They are friendly with the shopkeepers in their neighborhood who don't mind at all what the girl does for a living.

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

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

39. All teen house parties have one of every stereotypical subculture present (even people who aren't liked and would never get invited to parties).
Glasswing Butterfly

Glasswing Butterfly(Greta Oto) is a brush-footed butterfly where its wings are transparent. The tissue between the veins of its wings looks like glass. They are found in the range which extends throughout Central America into Mexico. More pics here..

Don't forget this one:
People in movies will wake up in the morning looking beautiful and start kissing right away because their breath is fresh and minty.

The butterfly is beautiful.

The list about things that happen only in the movies is so true. The entire month of October they had this program on Discovery channel about real-life hauntings. There were interviews of people and dramatized versions of their experience, which had the corny horror movies background score. For some reason that music makes me laugh more than get scared!

** your opponents will wait patiently to attack you one by one by dancing around you in a threatening manner until you have defeated their predecessor.
