This kid thought he was gonna play a friendly game of chess, but he had no idea that they brought in an actual chess master to show him the true meaning of chess. That giant health bar and Dark Souls stuff is just icing on the cake.

Apparently in reality the game went relatively wholesomely, but who has time for that.

If only every problem went away by hitting the absolute soul out of it. This guy is lucky it worked or they'd just have a video called "jerk smashes TV." While that cackle is otherworldly, the most important unanswered question remains: did the fork go in?

Bit of a genius idea right here. This ended up working out very well. It becomes glaringly evident in this video that the show itself was written by someone who has never been anywhere close to a first responders scene.

Tumblr Thread: Sesame Street's Forbidden, Nightmarish Crack Monster

We're not sure whether this whole rumor mill about Sesame Street's foreboding and forbidden Crack Monster is actually real or not. Regardless of whether or not this is nothing more than an imaginative work of fiction from some of Tumblr's wandering minds, it's still certainly an intriguing concept. At least we were able to find the infamous video (see end of list). We just wonder if all the other details about the story are true.

Tumblr Thread: Three Repetitive Types of Female Characters

Tumblr is generally the place where people get exhaustive about the annoying types of characters they see over and over again in books, tv and movies. Movies are a business and we tend to not question repetition, like these very limited types of movie posters. For some, these characters are so unrealistic that it takes away from the story. It's a bit like this Twitter thread making fun of how male authors describe women.

Tumblr Insists Big Bird Isn't an Apex Predator

Once people realized that Big Bird's foreword facing eyes could indicate that Sesame Street could be his hunting grounds, it created a lot of mixed feelings.

TV Gets Damaged In Transit, Company Loses Millions

Man, what a prime example of how it can really just benefit a company to do the right thing when they have the chance. For whatever reason this company felt compelled to not fork over the $600 that they should've for a broken TV. Well, that BS decision went on to cost them dearly.

Villains Who People Sympathized With

Some classic movie villains are just having a bad day, had a tragic backstory, are trying to protect the people they love, are straight up following a contract, or just get attacked by the protagonist for no reason. On the other side, sometimes a fictional character is written or portrayed so well that they inspire genuine feelings of hate.

Jonathan Frakes aka Riker from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" also notably hosted the show "Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction." For those not in the know, the show presented stories that you had to guess were real or not. However, with all these intros cut together like this, Frakes just sounds like a bored child in the back of a car.

TV/Movie Phrases People Never Say In Real Life

"There's no time to explain, follow me!" Yes, there is definitely time to explain. The amount of times we see this particular TV/movie scenario involving a rushed individual telling someone to follow them into situations of obvious peril, without offering an explanation, is absolutely absurd. It's like, take a second, and provide a little context, my dude. Oh well, it clearly contributes toward that stressful pacing, and keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. 

This fun AskReddit thread features a whole lot more of those moments from TV/movies that just don't hold up in real life as we know it. It'd be quite the strange world if we saw more of these phrases being used. Like going to a bar, and just ordering a "beer." 

For more fun movie content, check out these plot holes that people just couldn't look past.
