    Our characters are in the front seats of a car, truck, whatever, And while talking the driver will often turn and look at their companion for a highly dangerous amount of time when travelling at speed. OMG watch the dam road!!

    I have Uber drivers that do this all the time. That or they make eye contact in the rearview mirror for way too long. It's a cultural thing. I was raised by a Samoan uncle and if I didnt look him in the eye while hes talking. It was instant lickens. Weirdly enough I know other polynesian people where it's considered rude and an act of aggression to look the directly in the eyes for any real amount of time.

    Most TV shows I don't even notice because the fake scenery scrolling by in the background distracts me so much.

    Its why I actually appreciate shows that at least try to make it look they are actually driving (even though I know they are probably in a car being towed and its a dolly cam).

    The distracted driving bothers me, for movie reasons, because I've seen enough movies where some horrible tragedy happens in the movie because the driver was distracted. So in any scene where a driver is being distracted in his driving, I'm already preparing myself for the potential accident that is going to happen. So when it doesn't happen, I've gone through all that stress for nothing. I'm like a dog that's been hit so many times by his master, that he flinches every time his master raises a hand.

    Doubt if anyone other than me watches The Golden Girls, but this drives me crazy:

    Dorothy (Bea Arthur), from the beginning of the series, talks about how her ex-husband Stan knocked her up in high school. They got married because of the pregnancy and then he left her for a young stewardess after 38 years of marriage. This story is told over and over again throughout the series.

    Yet, she repeatedly talks about having ONLY two kids - Kate and Michael - who we meet on the show and are both in their 20s. Where is this 40 year old child she supposedly had???

    On The Big Bang Theory I have noticed that when Bernadette is driving she will look up and to the side as if she is looking at the rearview mirrors. She seems to be the only one that does this.

    Maybe the child went to live with the father.

    It stems from the actress being so busty. She always has to watch where she’s going so as not to bump into things, and it translates into her in character mannerisms...!

    Yeah, or an estranged child to both parents, w. issues about being the bastard child.

(not just from killing the President and Rhodey, but also when he realizes that he's going to have to swim home, since he's now stuck on a burning oil rig, with no ride home, and possibly no more means to even call home to get a ride, since his earpiece alone might not have the signal range to reach Jarvis, on the mainland...)
    Except that suit didn't run on JARVIS or any Starktech operating system. In IM2 it was said that Hammer 'upgraded all of the software', and it was to the point that JARVIS had a hard time hacking into the suit. Then in IM3 it's said that the Iron Patriot makeover was an AIM upgrade. On top of that, I think it was implied that Tony coded that suit to Rhodey, and no longer counted it as one of his suits.

    I hate when actors are playing a musician in movies, and don't make actual chord shapes on guitars. They don't have to be the right ones, per se, but something other than a flat hand on a fretboard!

    .
    And short. Melissa Rauch is only 4'11". While Jim Parsons is 6'1" as a comparison.

    It’s funny how Parsons’ character as a child is so dang short.

    And at 4’11” that’s a Lott’s bosom on a short frame...!
