There are some things which are apparently so important for the world to know that movies and TV show them to us over and over and over again.

For example don't worry if you get paired up with someone you can't stand on a job or project because in a fairly short period of time the two of you will be the best of friends or in love.

That's good to know and it's probably made hundreds of thousands of lives better for knowing it. Thanks movies & TV!

So what important lessons have you learned from movies and TV?



(Yes, there are probably a web sites and even books that cover things learned from movies & TV. But they don't have the golden sponge cake and creamy filling that Bilge does.)

If you're trying to hide from someone hide up (on the ceiling, a ladder, a bookshelf, etc). No on ever looks up when they're looking for someone.

If you know there's someone who might want to kill you don't take a bath with a TV or a radio or any plugged in electrical appliance sitting near by. The person who wants to kill you will show up and after some pithy or innocuous dialog he/she will throw the electrical appliance into the tub with you and then you will be dead.

This is also a valuable lesson if you know there is a mystical force attempting to kill you. But the mystical force will not engage you in dialog before dumping the electrical appliance into the tub.

Also mystical forces will kill you in the tub even if there is no electrical appliance near by. So if you know there's a mystical force trying to kill you just stay away from taking baths.

If you are avoiding taking baths and opt for showers instead be sure to watch out for shower curtains as they can be used by people and mystical forces to smother or strangle you.

From TV, I've learned that it is much easier to butter corn on the cobb by first spreading butter on a piece of bread, then cup the slice of bread in your hand (buttered side up of course), and roll the ear of corn in it...you get a quick, even spread of butter on the ear of corn...no mess...and the bread is tasty too.

PS: I saw that being done in some movie(?)on TV -

If you're reading someone the riot act cuz they did something stupid and they say

"I didn't think..."

you should interrupt them right after they say "think" with one of these well worn lines:

    "That's just it, you didn't think, did you?"

    "No, you didn't think."

    "That's the problem, you never think, you just blah blah blah..."

No matter how big the event or popular the restaurant you're going to you will find a parking space right in front.

When you are about to murder someone who stands in the way of your evil scheme and has been trying to thwart you/solve the crime, tell them why you are going to kill them, explain the whole criminal plot that you are perpetrating.

Just walk in to any bar or diner and not only will you find an old fashioned coin operated juke box but that juke box will have at least one really cool record in it.

If you discover something really bad about the company you work for or your boss or a powerful coworker and you tell it in confidence to a trusted colleague and the trusted colleague is shocked to hear of your discovery and then asks "Have you told anyone else this?" and you reply "No, just you." your trusted colleague will then kill you or try to kill you shortly after your revelation.
