Things That Are Normal In Movies, But Wouldn't Happen In Real Life

Movies are about escapism - they're meant to take us away into a fantasy world, whether it's a cartoon, an action-thriller, a rom-com, or a horror movie. But even though it's not real, we still want to see plots that are somewhat believable, and sometimes, the producers just get it all wrong. People of Reddit are pointing out all the things are totally normal in movies, but never happens in real life and they've got us seeing movies all differently now.

Amazingly, no one was injured in this Jay, Maine paper mill explosion. And as an interesting bonus we have the commentary of all the guys in their trucks watching the whole thing go down. Around a minute in, the pulp starts to land.

The video doesn't offer much explanation as to why these guys are detonating anything at the end of this pipe, but holy crap. The sound and speed is reminiscent of a jet breaking the sound barrier. Surprisingly, the op says that only basic earplugs are required for protection against this monster.

The White Island Volcano Eruption

The White Island Volcano, off of the coast of New Zealand, known as Whakaari, erupted on Monday December 9th. The tourism hotspot had a number of boats and tourists in the area, and unfortunately around 50 people were on the island at the time of the explosion. So far authorities confirmed 6 dead and 29 in intensive care with burns ranging from 40 to 95%. Rescue efforts are stymied as the volcano has shown signs that another eruption is imminent, and there a number of people still missing.  

Hospitals have ordered 1.2 million square kilometers of skin in order to make sure to have enough to treat the patients, and any additional patients that may be discovered. These are some glimpses of the explosion and aftermath.

That's a heck of a boost trying to get some air, though if she wanted to do a cool trick off the board, she could have just taken a running start, massive explosives were not required. Though there's still the question if they used a stunt double or a dummy in this clip. The camera shift seems a bit too convenient. I was hoping for one single shot, but I think the insurance would have an aneurysm. But if you want to compare this to the biggest explosions in our world's history, and beyond, this one is chump change compared to these calamitous events.
