Topic: What We've Learned From TV And The Movies

1. If staying in a haunted house, women should investigate any strange noises wearing their most revealing underwear.

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

3. The ventilation system of any building is a perfect hiding place. Nobody will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building without difficulty.

4. All bombs are fitted with helpful electronic timing devices that have large red readouts so you know exactly when they're going to go off.

5. It is always possible to park directly outside the building you are visiting.

6. If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump into will know all the steps.

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

8. When paying for a taxi, never look at your wallet as you take out a note - just grab one at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

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

10. If a killer is lurking in your house, it's easy to find him. Just relax and run a bath - even if it's the middle of the afternoon.

11. One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them all than 20 men firing at one.

12. Most people keep a scrapbook of newspaper cuttings - especially if any of their family or friends has died in a strange boating accident.

13. 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 predecessor.

14. During a very emotional confrontation, instead of facing the person you are speaking to, it is customary to stand behind them and talk to their back.

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

16. If there is a deranged killer on the loose, this will coincide with a thunderstorm that has brought down all the power and phone lines in the vicinity.

17. There's always a chainsaw around when you need one.

18. Rather than wasting bullets, megalomaniacs prefer to kill their arch-enemies using complicated machinery involving fuses, pulley systems, deadly gases, lasers and man eating sharks that will allow their captives at least 20 minutes to escape.
