WTF Wednesday: Things about Movies and TV shows I don’t get… Part 1

Hello and welcome to another blog by YOURS TRUELY!

I think I’m having a brain-farting day where all the bloggers’ block I’ve had in the past weeks are just tumbling down and I can blog more than I have in ages.

ANYWAY

Today I was thinking about the random things they try and sell us (not literally) on movies and TV shows that give us the illusion that it’s the norm and when things don’t work out quite the same in reality, we seem to think we’ve done something wrong.

Don’t understand what I’m talking about? Check out some of the things I’ve picked up that make absolutely no sense and convert it to your everyday life…

They have time for everything

I don’t know about you, but if I had to work as a forensic in Miami in the hot sun all day, I will barely have energy to take a bath and sleep when I get home, let alone go out and find some random shmuck to kill, unlike my man Dexter over here.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Dexter

Supernatural

Iron Man

Batman

You can be pathetic (or a whore, or a geek), it’s ok, hot guys will still want you

Just ask personality-less girls like Bella from Twilight and Anastasia from 50 Shades of Grey. You can dress like a dowdy house-wife, be awkward, not look after yourself and be as fun as a plastic bag filled with needles and random vampires and CEOs will be DYING to date you.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Twilight

50 Shades of Grey (still going to become a movie)

Pretty Woman

She’s All That

It’s alright to stalk the person you love because when they fall in love with you they will forgive you

I don’t care if you look like Ian Somerhalder, have a yacht and feed me the finest sushi in the land. If you’re going into my room and watching me sleep, standing outside my room and watching me change, I’m going to call the cops on your ass. This is not in ANY way sexy or appealing and will NOT make me fall in love with you!

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Twilight

The Girl Next Door

You’ve got Mail

Love Actually

If you’re going to cause shit, make sure you wear a bulletproof vest, you will be invincible

In lots of movies someone gets shot and you think they’re dead and later you find out they were wearing a bullet-proof vest, so they end up fine.

Ok what a load of hogwash. If the baddies are going to shoot you and they’ve got the training and amazing guns at their disposal, they could shoot you in your head or any other part of your body that’s exposed and you could lose a lot of blood and die anyway. Not to mention the fact that your vest (unless made from Nokia 3310 cellphones) has a 50% chance of failing on you depending on the gun and bullet the person shooting you is using.

PS – I’m joking about the Nokias so please don’t go and make one and try it out.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Back to the Future

Man With No Name

So have you learnt anything totally useless from movies or TV shows?

There are many more that I will eventually get round to, in the meantime, this is my part 1.

Have an awesome hump day!

Manic Monday: 9gag & The Oatmeal

Good morning peeps!

Yes dreaded Monday is upon us once more and I’m sorry to bring it to your attention when I think you might have forgotten it…oops.

Anyway, for a while now I’ve known about 2 websites that keep me from pulling my hear out of my head while singing the national anthem from a treetop (Read: keeps me sane) and those are:

9gag and The Oatmeal

9gag is a meme/funny pic/ random website that bored people, people with no life, people with a life, people with half a life and an addiction to the internet, teenagers, pre-teens, teens-at-heart and college students find entertaining simply because it’s funny and cool and has loads of pictures of cats that do funny things.

Warning: 9gag will steal your soul and make you log on in the late hours of the night and when you notice again it will be 17 hours later and time to get up when you haven’t had any sleep. BUT it’s awesome!

The Oatmeal on the other hand is for the slightly twisted creature. It’s funny, but in a very politically incorrect way.

It has quizzes, jokes, comics, trivia and blogs that are totally random, weird and funny.

Some of my ultimate favourite posts are:

Happy Monday
