Posted:Oh, I'm watching such a good movie for this thread right now:

A plane can be struck by lightening, killing all crew and comms system, but unharming the rest of the plane, passenger, and autopilot.
Once wire controls everything in the autopilot, when it sparks, the autopilot changes direction.
A "computer geek" can connect the autopilot to a laptop using the burnt out wires.
When all the comms systems are down, the in-flight entertainment will be able to pick up a direct link to the local news, where the passengers can watch their plight. (A child is required to change the channels on the in-flight TV system)
Shooting the plane down is the only choice the authorities on the group will consider.
No-one out of 483 passengers from America to London will have any flying experience. And only two of those passengers will be British. And they will be very old.
The pregnant woman will always go into labour.
And there won't be a doctor on board either.

I'm sure there'll be more before the film finishes.....

If it costs "a penny for your thoughts", but people give you their "two-pence worth", who is getting the extra penny?

Posted:If a plane cockpit is struck by lightening, this will cause a fire in the cockpit, all the crew will die, but the glass won't break.
The navigation computer on a plane looks like a video game, displaying the destination in large characters, and a detailed road map quickly scrolling underneath it. That's handy to know!
A plane takes on board twice as much fuel as it needs - so for New York to London, it will carry 13 hours worth of fuel.
Vancover airport consists only of one runway/taxiway - it's very very small airport for such a big city.
Fire crews will be stupid enough to park where a crashing/landing plane could hit their car with an engine.

This is the best worst film I've ever watched ("Panic in the Skies"!!!)!

Posted:getting shot in a film, your flounder around and die slowly. in reality a 9mm wont always put you down and if its an old war film an enfield 303 will normally take your arm/leg off, but in the film it will just wound you. ubblol


thats why now a days armys use 5.56mm, so if it hits you in the chest it will just maim you. a wounded soldier is more of a burden for an army than a dead one.


(sp??) on all this my fire wall is acting up and wont let me use the spell check frown

Posted:- shooting hoops in basketball is way easier in the last two seconds of the game.... or scoring goals in any other sport for that matter
- if you do finally end up going to the toilet, something bad will happen to you
- there's always a guy in the next cubicle asking for toilet paper
- toilets in restaurants always have a handy escape window (for when the proverbial sh*t goes down biggrin ..... groan....)
- there's always a green light on office desks
- back on the toilet theme... a gun works fine after having been stored in the cistern
- if you want to dial 911, you will instantly lose reception on your cellphone
- in the extremely rare occurence that the pet DOESN't survive, the last shot in the movie will be of its puppies/kittens/tadpoles
- jumping from a speeding train/bus/car is fine as long as you roll
