#44 Action heroes can soak up bullets like a sponge (just a flesh wound!), lose large quantities of blood and still come out alive defeating the bad guy(s) in the process.

44 and 45 or whatever:

When reviewing videotape or security tapes, they always make that funny backward playing noise like people talking backwards even though they don't make noise when played backwards.


For some reason, no one gives a damn about people just walking into their home without taking off their shoes. Sure, its pissing rain outside but just track that mud all over my carpet. We can digitally remove it later.

46. Rain in movies ALWAYS starts with one clap of thunder and then it will pour like a waterfall. There is never any preceding light drizzle or the lightning.

So did mine and they are but she sent me one with 62 points. Do you lot want to know the rest? The email points aren't in the same order so, being the very lazy person that I am, I'd just post the whole lot with the repeated points left in.

Aw, whatever. Here they are:

1. If staying in a haunted house, women should investigate any
strange noises wearing their most revealing underwear.
2. If being chased through town, you can usually take cover in a
passing St Patrick's Day parade - at any time of the year.
3. All beds have special L-shaped top sheets that reach up to
armpit level on a woman but only waist level on the man lying
beside her.
4. All grocery shopping bags contain at least one stick of French
bread
5. It's easy for anyone to land a plane, providing there is
someone in the control tower to talk you down.
6. Once applied, lipstick will never rub off - even while scuba
diving.
7. The ventilation system of any building is a perfect hiding
place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there
and you can travel to any part of the building without difficulty
8. You're likely to survive any battle in any war unless you make
the mistake of showing someone a picture of your sweetheart back
home.
9. Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it
will not be necessary to speak the language. A German accent
will do.
10. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window of any building
in Paris.
11. People on TV never finish their drinks.
12. A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating
but
will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.
13. The chief of police is always black.
14. 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.
15. If you lose a hand, it will cause the stump of your arm to grow
by 15cm.
16. Kitchens don't have light switches. When entering a kitchen at
night, you should open the fridge door and use that light
instead.
17. During all police investigations, it will be necessary to visit
a strip club at least once.
18. Mothers routinely cook eggs, bacon and waffles for their family
every morning, even though the husband and children never have time
to eat them.
19. Cars and trucks that crash will almost always burst into flames.
20. Wearing a singlet or stripping to the waist can make a man
invulnerable to bullets.
21. A single match will be sufficient to light up a room the size
of a football stadium.
22. 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.
23. Medieval peasants had perfect teeth.
24. Although in the 20th century it is possible to fire weapons
at an object out of visual range, people of the 23rd century
will have lost this technology.
25. All single women have a cat.
26. Any person waking from a nightmare will sit bolt upright and
pant.
27. Even when driving down a perfectly straight road, it is necessary to
turn the steering wheel vigorously from left to right every few moments.
28. One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them all than
20 men firing at one.
29. Creepy music coming from a graveyard should always be closely
investigated.
30. If a phone line is broken, communication can be restored by frantically
beating the cradle and saying, "Hello?, Hello?"
31. Most people keep a scrapbook of newspaper cuttings - especially
if any of their family or friends has died in a strange boating
accident.
32. 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.
33. 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.
34. When you turn out the light to go to bed, everything in your
room will still be clearly visible, just slightly bluish.
35. Dogs always know who's bad and will naturally bark at them.
36. Police departments give their officers personality tests to
make sure they are deliberately assigned a partner who is
their total opposite.
37. When they are alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English
to each other.
38. Action heroes never face charges for manslaughter or criminal
damage despite laying entire cities to waste.
39. No matter how badly a spaceship is attacked, its internal
gravity system is never damaged.
40. 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.
41. You can always find a chainsaw whenever you're likely to need
one.
42. 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.
43. Having a job of any kind will make all fathers forget their
son's eighth birthday.
44. Many musical instruments - especially wind instruments and
accordions can be played without moving the fingers.
45. All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large
red readouts so you know exactly when they're going to go off.
46. It is always possible to park directly outside the building you
are visiting.
47. Guns are like disposable razors - if you run out of bullets,
just throw the gun away. You can always buy a new one.
48. Make-up can safely be worn to bed without smudging.
49. A detective can only solve a case once he has been suspended
from
duty.
50. If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump
into will know all the steps.
51. Large, loft-style apartments in New York City are well within
the
price
range of most people. Whether they are employed or not.
52. At least one of a pair of twins is born evil.
53. Shoudl you decide to defuse a bomb, don't worry which wire to
cut.
You will always choose the right one.
54. Most laptop computers are powerful enough to override the
communications system of any invading alien society.
55. If you are blonde and pretty, it is possible to become a world
expert on nuclear fission at the age of 22.
56. Honest and hard working policemen are traditionally gunned down
three days before their retirement.
57. If a large pane of glass is visible, someone will be thrown
through
it before long
58. Word processors never display a cursor on screen but will always
say:
Enter Password Now:
59. Any person or group of people on the run from the
police/mob/international murder teams/lunatic killers/hired assassins, will
travel in a convertible with the top down.
60. Television news bulletins usually contain a story that affects
you
personally at that precise moment.
61. People rarely use the bathroom, and if they do, they are usually
dead within minutes.
62. When a sleeping person gets a phone call late at night he will
always turn on the light by the bed before answering

50/63 - As a car falls down a cliff it will explode 3 or 4 times, followed by an even larger explosion when it gets to the bottom, despite the fact that it only has one gas tank!
