Movies Don’t Make Sense

Teleport

Here is some list which contains a bunch of funny things which we only find in films. A snippet is appended below.

7. When you turn out the light to go to bed, everything in you room will still be visible, just slightly bluish

8. People deal with stressful, life threatening situations by making quick witted quips

9. No-one, but no-one uses Microsoft Windows – everyone uses unique operating systems. All of these computer systems, however mundane, are full of animated graphics and enormous download bars in the middle of the screen

10. When paying for a taxi, you don’t need to look at your wallet as you take out a note. Just grab one out at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare

Ouch. It sounds like they sell a camera, as well as a vibrator with batteries included. Here’s another funny typo which someone told me about last year.

Google recommends Yahoo
Google proposes Yahoo Search (it shiows up right below Yahoo
Mail) as a candidate for ‘therapy products’

Rarely can you find such ironic screenshots.

There is indeed a typo in the image, but I have not bothered to fix it. Perhaps it can be perceived as humorous.

I have many more such images in the Amusement page.

Hormones and Emotions Flood Microsoft

Girl covers ears

MORE executives are leaving Microsoft while more of its products are having their release date further delayed. As each blow to the prospects of the company hits, people jokingly say that the CEO throws a chair. This is mentioned in reference to his anger management problems, which are potentially connected to issues with his character, as Wikipedia explains.

Ballmer’s tendency to loudly and enthusiastically express himself is well known. A famous 1991 incident left his vocal cords requiring repairative surgery after he screamed “Windows, Windows, Windows” continuously during a meeting in Japan. With the advent of internet video, such incidents have become increasingly infamous. (see videos)
