People Break Down Which Things Always Happen In Movies And Never In Real Life

One of the most annoying things I swear you only see in movies is the "I can explain!" trope. You know the one: A character stumbles upon something they very likely completely misconstrued... and then they decide to be little more than a child and refuse to listen to anyone's attempts to clear the air. Suffice it to say that if there isn't a misunderstanding (no matter how shallow) then there's no movie! It's so frustrating!

After Redditor whosactualmanisthis asked the online community, "What commonly occurs in movies that doesn't usually happen in real life?" people weighed in with their observations.


"News reports that apparently..."

News reports that apparently repeat themselves every minute or two. Enough time for somebody to see a news report, pick up the phone, call somebody to tell them to turn on the TV, then, without changing channels, the reporter immediately starts taking it from the top once again.

With cars, news reports are magic in that they are relevant to the situation and start immediately after the driver turns on the radio.

"Pretty sure that doesn't happen..."

Morgue and autopsy rooms frequently feature a coroner eating a pastrami sandwich over, or near a corpse. It's like a Hollywood inside joke. Pretty sure that doesn't happen, and would probably violate a bunch of health codes.

"A house full of kids..."

A house full of kids and the whole home is pristine. In real life, there's always going to be some toy or art project laying around and most likely damage to the furniture.

"In murder mysteries..."

In murder mysteries, the person you didn't think was the killer turns out to be the killer. In most cases, the person most likely to be the killer is the killer and it is pretty obvious they did it.

"Very rarely..."

People time their conversations perfectly. Very rarely do people start talking at the same time.

"People working in a very fancy office..."

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

Redditor Alternative_kachocho was curious to hear some "fun facts" which were anything but fun, leading them to ask:

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
