The age old one of a western cowboy shooting 25 times out of a six shooter.. it's nothing new really.

The obvious decorated 2-stroke dirt bikes doing the<br /> motorcycle maneuvers sounding like a Harley and the everyday grocery getter car chasing, matching performance and gaining on a Ferrari (or such).

Dudes that drive shopping carts (over-tuned, farty imports with fat tires and a wing) who are actually cool cats.

Cowboys that sit around the campfire eating KFC on a stick and pretend theyâre eating some âcritterâ that they hunted for dinner.

A group of cowboys sitting around a campfire eating beans and immediately launching into hysterical farting fits. (Everyone know the gas come AFTER dinner! ;o)<br /> <br /> Still hilarious though!

I know people who own horses. I constantly hear about how fragile they are, requiring visits by vets, farriers and the like.<br /> <br /> But in the westerns, horses are seemingly like Jeeps. Extremely low maintenance, requiring an occasional clump of grass to eat, crossing deserts without a sip of water, spending nights in driving rain with no ill effects.<br /> <br /> And with all those horses in the towns, you'd think that heroes and villains alike would be squishing their way through droppings and puddles in the street. Yet movie horses are remarkable in their ability to "hold it" for like .... forever.<br /> <br /> I remember seeing a British movie where the action took place in horse-drawn London, and there were boys on each side of the street, whose job it was to rush out with their brooms and push the droppings to the side of the road within seconds in order to earn a penny or two.

Women wanting to have sex with Steven Seagal - but then again when they do it he stays fully clothed.<br /> <br /> Check out "Contract to Kill". There is a love sceneâand, OMG, what a love scene. His fully dressed body is lowered over a naked woman like a drawbridge. He doesnât even take off his glasses.

"But in the westerns, horses are seemingly like Jeeps."<br /> <br /> I dunno, man... Mongo can knock out a horse with one punch.<br /> <br /> They don't seem so tough to me.

This one drives me nuts and I see varitaions of this all the time in movies and TV shows. The bad guy is chasing and/or attacking the the good guy. They fight or struggle and good guy gets the advantage, knocks bad guy down, stuns him, maybe even knocks him out.<br /> <br /> Now here's where it goes off the rails for me. If I'm the good guy, I'm gonna make dang sure Mr. Bad can't just recover and try to do me harm again. I'll kill him or seriously injure him or tie him up or lock him up...something! But nooo...instead good guy turns his back or just continues running/escaping, etc. Bad guy gets back up and it's another 10 minutes worth of popcorn...but Arrrrggghhh!

Broke Down

^Following on with the 'being nice to bad guys' theme: The number of times you see someone put an arm lock on somebody's straight elbow and they get thrown. Just like in training! But in a real situation with someone trying to do you serious harm, if you get a joint lock on the nasty person then it's going to be a break, not a nice controlled takedown (which is actually quite hard to do in a real situation anyway). It's very rare this is shown. I did notice one a while ago in an episode of Jessica Jones- she doesn't mess about!

Who else has noticed that nearly every movie helicopter sounds like an old piston engine powered Bell 47, regardless of the fact that most have been turbine powered for decades?



Hold my beer,..I'm gonna try someth'in

Just about every western,..<br /> <br /> Always wondered why (since I was a young kid actually) why,. when the Indians were circling the wagons,.. why didn't they just shoot the horses?,. easier/bigger target.<br /> <br /> Also,..1800's ,.. bright white/straight teeth,.. on just about everybody.

Mythbusters did some episodes where they nailed some of the common movie foolishness.<br /> <br /> Don't try this at home but in one episode they go after the old radio in the bathtub trick. Wanna electrocute someone? Just toss a plugged in radio/hairdryer/toaster in the tub while they are taking a bath. Doesn't work...not that I'm gonna try it.<br /> <br /> They also busted some common movie car crash stunts and of course a whole lot of watching things get blowed up real good.

Women Special Agents: FBI, DHS, etc. Walking around in high heels/stilettos. Yet they have to run after the bad guys, etc??????? Similarly to TJ re middle income cops, etc, living in huge homes, as I posted in another thread, middle income heroes/military wearing 5K - 10K watches.<br /> Oh, one of the latest episodes of Hawaii Five-0. The task force members were in a stuck in a cabin, in the middle of the woods surrounded by a huge forest fire. Then comes Steve McGarrett in a helicopter lowering straps to put under and around the cabin, then lift and fly it over the trees to safety. Hmmm, dislodging it from the plumbing and other pipes, AND for a helicopter to even carry that weight???? As I said about the show, I watch it for the scenery.

And cowboys of the late 1800s with Cats Paw rubber heels and soles on their boots.<br /> <br /> And pointy toes... and the extreme tapered heel.

If the detective needs info on anyone or anything, just type on a computer for 3 seconds, and every specific thing you want & need pops right up. I wanna know what search engine they use, cuz it sure ain't Google
