People Reveal The Tolls They'd Implement If They Were A Bridge Troll

[rebelmouse-image 18355467 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Everybody has to pay their way in some form or another when crossing a border into a new land. That is one of the hottest topics in our lives currently. But if you were the person in charge of the cost of the crossing, like the bridge is yours alone, have you ever wondered what sort of requests you might demand if you had free reign?

Redditor _GrifterDingo wondered aloud If you were a bridge troll, what would be the toll to cross your bridge? The things people think about never ceases to amaze.

ELDERS ARE CHATTY!

They have to call their parents and grandparents but they aren't allowed to initiate the end of the call.

My bridge will be covered in skeletons.

I'M PRETTY TOO!

[rebelmouse-image 18355468 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Say something nice about me. Getting called a troll all the time can really bruise the ego.

THIS BRIDGE IS CHEAP.

[rebelmouse-image 18355469 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

$7.50 and we'd take EZPass

AND DOES THE FEDERAL BUDGET COVER IT?

Five paragraph essay on the advantages of bridges versus fording a river. Might as well put that high school education to some use.

AND THROW IN SOME BBQ SAUCE.

[rebelmouse-image 18345894 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

" I only accept gold nuggets.....chicken nuggets....Denver Nuggets. Whatever you got."

THROW IN SOME FRIED RICE AS WELL AND YOU'RE ON.

[rebelmouse-image 18979184 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Definitely egg rolls. While not unreasonable to acquire, they're not something people just typically carry around. They would likely have to go grab one and come back, so I'd know they care enough to at least do that. Bonus: Egg Roll Troll rhymes

CHOCOLATE FIRST ALWAYS!

[rebelmouse-image 18979186 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Anything peanut butter. I'm a pretty lenient bridge troll.

THAT'S A HEFTY PRICE TAG.

[rebelmouse-image 18977402 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A boy's soul.

AND SOME JAM AND MIMOSAS ON THE SIDE.

[rebelmouse-image 18979187 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pastries. I'd be a very fat troll.

NO CARCASSES PAST THIS POINT.

[rebelmouse-image 18979188 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cleaning up the dead bodies of people who littered near my bridge...

If there are no dead bodies then just go right on through... But don't even think about littering.

CRAFT? INTERNATIONAL? OR LOCAL?

[rebelmouse-image 18979189 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Beer. Just beer.

Seems appropriate if you live under a bridge.

DO YOU COVER DENTAL?

[rebelmouse-image 18346089 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

You must hand me an application form and be ready to work as an apprentice bridge troll. For the first few weeks you'll have a costume made of grass, but eventually through the lack of hygiene you will develop natural fungy infections, boils, and a hairy neckbeard.

Your role as an apprentice bridge troll will be to take application forms from travelers. Growing exponentially, we'll eventually be so numerous that we'll be able to overthrow the government of Cyrodiil and establish Trollism in all Tamriel. Questions?

REGULAR OR TERIYAKI?

[rebelmouse-image 18979190 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Beef jerky.

WHO HAS THAT KIND OF CASH?

[rebelmouse-image 18979191 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pay my student loan debt.

AN EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMAL IS A MUST.

[rebelmouse-image 18979192 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Give me a puppy and you may pass.

IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS.

[rebelmouse-image 18352271 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Basic human decency.

DANCE. DANCE FOOL. DANCE.

[rebelmouse-image 18979194 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Make a fool out of yourself, only the humble may cross.

STICK WITH THE CLASSICS!

[rebelmouse-image 18979196 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Bacon cheese burger with fries and a chocolate shake.

OR ALL OF THE ABOVE.

[rebelmouse-image 18979197 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cash or grass. Nobody crosses for free.

WE ONLY ALLOW THE BEST OF THE BEST THROUGH THIS BORDER.

[rebelmouse-image 18979198 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

You must answer me these questions three, ere the other side ye see.

What is your name?

What is your quest?

What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Remember the Dreamcast? If you don't, then you've been missing out. Sit down, sweet summer child, and listen up.

The Dreamcast was a console so ahead of its time that console has been a Dreamcast since there was a Dreamcast. Too advanced to match its competitors, not appealing enough to be considered part of the next generation. I have fond memories of that console. Crazy Taxi was a gem.

Not everything comes out at the right time. We heard about a few other examples after Redditor rentinghappiness asked the online community,

"In your opinion, what’s something that flopped because it was way ahead of its time?"

Consumers who have money to burn often buy things they don't really need, like travel accessories, specialized sports equipment for an activity they've only done once, or even cookbooks, when plenty of recipes can be found online.

You know, try as I might, I just can't bring myself to bother with The Walking Dead. I quit the show some years ago, probably around the time of that weird fakeout with Glen in the dumpster (and then his actual death right after that), but the truth is that the show was getting on my nerves for some time before that.

Did anyone actually care about all the nonsense going on with Deanna and the citizens of Alexandria? And can we go back a bit further and talk about how ludicrous Beth's death at the hands of some power-tripping officer in a hospital ward was? There was such a noticeable drop in quality after the third season that I questioned why I kept tuning in.

But this show is far from the only one to make people want to throw their remotes at their television screens. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor regian24 asked the online community,

"What TV show was amazing at first but became unwatchable for you later on?"

People Break Down Which Professions Hollywood Gets Completely Wrong

More often than not, what gets us to keep tuning in to our favorite TV shows, or drawn to certain movies, is to get a glimpse into various professions which fascinate us, but which we wouldn't ever want to work ourselves.

Needless to say, there aren't many people who find the Indiana Jones films to be a remotely accurate depiction of archaeology, or that the Jurassic Park films show what paleontology is really like.

But many people tend to watch iconic procedurals like Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order under the notion that they both give an accurate depiction of the medical field and the legal world.

Only, how accurate are they?

Redditor Just_Surround_2108 was curious to learn which professions have been documented on screen without as much research as one might expect, leading them to ask:

"What profession does Hollywood get completely wrong in films and TV?"
