Things You Wouldn't Know Without The Movies


1. Kitchens don't have light switches. When entering a kitchen at night, you should open the fridge door and use that light instead.

2. All grocery shopping bags contain at least one stick of French Bread.

3. If your town is threatened by an imminent natural disaster or killer beast, the mayor's first concern will be the tourist trade or his forthcoming art exhibition.

4. When paying for a taxi, don't look at your wallet as you take out a bill - just grab one at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

5. It is not necessary to say hello or goodbye when beginning or ending phone conversations.

6. A detective can only solve a case once he has been suspended from duty.
