Movies That Would Be Way Shorter If Characters Were Reasonable

We get it, most movies need a central conceit in order to make the plot actually work. No one is saying that every movie should end in five minutes with a phone call or the decision to "not stay at the creepy mansion." What gets frustrating is having to watch a bunch of movies that only work because the characters involved are unbelievably dumb. It's kind of like these unrealistic movie details that will never stop being annoying.

Unrealistic Movie Details That Won't Stop Being Annoying

Sure, movies don't have the time to account for literally every plot-independent detail in a character's life. Plus, a 10-hour movie where the main character spends half their time in traffic and on the toilet wouldn't be fun to watch. Probably. But there are too many flagrant and obviously unrealistic movie moments that never get corrected. For some more movie dumbness, here's tumblr uncovering the nine types of movie posters.

Twitter Thread: British Woman's Observations On Weird Stuff In U.K.

We love a good old fashioned Twitter that manages to culture us a little bit on some of the strange things that occur over in a foreign land like the U.K. For instance, apparently British people call their fanciest private schools public schools, which kind of makes zero sense. But hey, to each their own. For some more worldly content check out this AskReddit thread about Americans' biggest culture shocks when visiting Europe

Movie Elements That Aren't Like That In Real Life

We get it. Filmmakers use unrealistic storytelling methods in order to convey the most amount of information to the viewer in as efficient a way as possible. It would be boring to watch Joe Pesci try to find parking for twenty minutes. That doesn't mean that some of these shortcuts go unnoticed, like how this tumblr thread uncovers the very limited types of movie posters.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is the relatively simple observation that people lacking in knowledge on a certain subject will overestimate their own abilities related to that subject. Or rather, stupid people aren't smart enough to know they're dumb. Basically, the less you know, the more you think you know. This can have real problems when it comes to things like public health and representative democracy. 

They say it effects everybody, so who knows how much we just glossed over writing this description.
