Things We Learn From Movies cont...

Well today is Thursday. We New Yorkers are mourning the loss of Cory Lidle. His private airplane ran into a high rise building in New York City, on Wednesday. He was a pitcher for the New York Yankees, and he had been here in our town of Binghamton as a minor league player with the Binghamton Mets until he signed with the Yankees. So it is doubly sad for our town. My heart-felt sympathy and prayers go out to his family.

On a brighter note...This week's Christian Fiction Blog Alliance book tour for Violette Between,by Alison Strobel is doing great. It is #2 on Technorati Popular Books! Hopefully at #1 by the time you read this!

Here's the rest of Things we learn from movies!

*One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them than 20 men firing at 1 man.

*If being fired at by Germans, hide in a river - or even a bath. German bullets are unable to penetrate water.

*Laptop computers are powerful enough to override the communication systems of an invading alien civilization.

*Most people keep a scrapbook of newspaper clippings - especially if any of their family or friends have died in a strange boating accident.

*All computer disks will work in all computers, regardless of software.

*Police Departments give their officers personality tests to make sure they are assigned a partner who is their total opposite.

*When they are alone, foreigners prefer to speak English to each other.

*If you are a hero, you never face charges for manslaughter or criminal damage despite laying entire cities to waste by your actions.

*You can always find a chainsaw when you need one.

*Any lock can be picked by a credit card or a paper clip in seconds - unless it's the door to a burning building with a child trapped inside.

*You can tell if somebody is British because he will be wearing a bow tie.

*When driving a car, it is normal to look not at the road but rather at the person sitting beside you or in the back seat for the entire journey.

*Taxi drivers don't require exact or even approximate payment - the first bill you pull from your pocket is always correct.

*Having a job of any kind will make a father forget his son's eighth birthday.

*Honest and hard working policemen are traditionally gunned down three days before retirement.

*The more a man and a woman hate each other, the more likely they will fall in love.

    In Westerns it doesn't matter if you ask for a shot or the whole bottle, you just throw the ol' barkeep a silver dollar!

    Hi Bonnie. I skipped over here from the other Bonnie's blog. Did you know it's true that bullets can only penetrate water to a depth of about two feet? After that, they lose their speed and momentum.
