People Are Sharing Examples Of Logic That Only Works In Movies (30 Pics)

Published 4 years ago

It’s no surprise that sometimes movies and logic go their own separate ways. And while seeing the main character mowing down hundreds of enemies without having to reload or simply walking off bullet wounds doesn’t really seem that out of the ordinary, sometimes it’s the little things that bother us the most.

Redditor OG_Builds recently asked the users of r/AskReddit “What’s something that is totally normal in movies, but never happens in real life?”. Turns out there are hundreds of small things that only make sense in the movie world. You know, like hacking the Pentagon by mashing on the keyboard really fast or the fact that you never see any character brushing their teeth before sleep or after waking up. The thread got over 64k upvotes and 28k comments in just a few days and is an absolute goldmine of silly movie tropes – check out some of the best ones in the gallery below!

In reality, it’s mace and call the cops for stalking.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
