Lessons learned from a lifetime of watching movies:

• Apparently, it's impossible to make a bomb that still blows up no matter what fucking wire you cut.

• The safest place to ride out an apocalypse? The arm of the Statue of Liberty.

• Telling someone who is aggravated or scared to "calm down" or "relax" will cause that person to calm down or relax; at worst, people might respond with "Don't tell me to relax" immediately before they do so.

• I'm not always in the mood for a movie, but I'm pretty much always in the mood to eat an entire tub of buttery popcorn in the dark all by myself.

• If you're an older gentleman with a heart condition, then SEX WILL KILL YOU. And then somebody will then remark, "But what a way to go." And then it won't get a laugh. And then you will have died in vain.

• When doing shots of alcohol, it is impossible to get rip-roaring drunk with anything fewer than 20.

• It doesn't matter if a man is old enough to be his lover's father, just so long as he isn't.

• Sex. People are having. Everywhere. All the time. And it's good. So very good.
