Upon rescuing your wife/mother/girlfriend who has been held prisoner for month or even years, they will choose the moment of rescue to suddenly drop dead.

Any bad guy on the verge of death has important information to impart first.

Cars are always nicely positioned for you to steer easily around should you be chased.

Any vehicle having to jump a gap in the road will somehow get a lift as it leaves the road as if there is a ramp there to help.

When running away from a bad guy, always try to climb as high as you can

If being chased in a forest, it doesn’t matter how fast you run, the walking killer behind you will catch you the second you trip over.

Alien or ghost killers will wipe out everyone you are travelling with before you work out the best way to beat them. In these situations you are better off being female.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

I was wondering about that in War of the Worlds.  Tom Cruise did a good job of going 60 on a two-lane freeway where all the cars were broken down.

Also, cell phones have a dial tone, and in most instances, people do NOT have to say Hello, or Goodbye on the phone.

I’ve never heard a dial tone after the other person hung up, regardless of the kind of phone I’m using.  Is this just an invention of the media?

Fry: And then the battle is not so bad?
Soldier: Oh, right. I forgot about the battle.

Dr. Who has the answer to number 37, at least for the klingons and aliens:
‘37. When they are alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English to each other.’

Once you step into the tardis, you understand every language in the universe. Maybe this is the same for star ships, other planets and telivisions studios. oh, and the living room of course!

People in movies don’t use the toilet, with three exceptions:
1) if there is a dinosaur roaming about and you will be eaten by it;
2) if you can overhear a murder plot by accident;
3) if someone is having sex there/you go to have sex there.

You left out:

A fall down a flight of stairs is always fatal.

Hitting a person hard on the nape of the neck will render them unconscious for about one half hour.

A dead body will always disappear without a trace by the time you return to show it to other people. Those people will now think you suffer from mental instability no matter how highly they regarded you 15 minutes before.
