MOVIE LOGIC is its own special thing, isn’t it?

3. All computers, everywhere, make that ‘typewriter’ sound when letters appear

No matter what you’re doing. Scuba diving? Grand.

But nobody ever has time to eat them.

10. Hangovers last approximately 20 seconds

Or the exact time it takes you to leave the house, after being woken up by a phone call


11. Nobody ever needs to use the toilet

The only exception to this is dads in the morning, when their teenage kids are in the bathroom.


12. Don’t worry about your car not starting. It will, but only on the third try.
