Some of the best intro videos from The Simpsons.

Even though this isn’t an intro to the show, it was cool anyways

20 things I learned from the movies.

1. If being chased through town, you can usually take cover in a passing St Patrick’s Day parade – at any time of the year.

2. All beds have special L-shaped top sheets that reach up to armpit level on a woman but only waist level on the man lying beside her.

3. All grocery shopping bags contain at least one stick of French bread.

4. Once applied, lipstick will never rub off – even while scuba diving.

5. The ventilation system of any building is a perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building without difficulty.

6. Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to speak the language. A German accent will do.

7. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window of any building in Paris.

8. A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.

9. When paying for a taxi, never look at your wallet as you take out a note – just grab one at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

10. If you lose a hand, it will cause the stump of your arm to grow by 15cm.

11. Mothers routinely cook eggs, bacon and waffles for their family every morning, even though the husband and children never have time to eat them.

12. Cars and trucks that crash will almost always burst into flames.

13. A single match will be sufficient to light up a room the size of a football stadium.

14. Medieval peasants had perfect teeth.

15. All single women have a cat.

16. Any person waking from a nightmare will sit bolt upright and pant.

17. One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them all than 20 men firing at one.

18. Creepy music coming from a graveyard should always be closely investigated.

19. Most people keep a scrapbook of newspaper cuttings – especially if any of their family or friends has died in a strange boating accident.

20. When looking for top secret files, they will always be stored in a folder labeled ‘Top Secret’.

The 15 Most Iconic Cars from movies

Well being the lover of lists that I am, I put together my picks for the 15 most iconic cars from the movies. Feel free to let me know how you feel about my list…what would you add or take away?

15. Lamborghini Countach from Canonball Run
This was the first time I really noticed the Lamborghini…what a car!

14. BMW Z3 from Goldeneye
It was our first chance to see the new Beamer and what a showing it was. (NB. video is not from the movie)

13. Eleanor from Gone in Sixty Seconds
I don’t know what Nicholas Cage was talking about but lots of people would consider themselves lucky to have a car like that.

12.”Black Moon” from Black Moon Rising
Nothing is more Rad than a super-futuristic 80’s sports car.

11. Bumble Bee from The Transformers Movie
Because we all wish to be blessed with such an awesome babe magnet!

10. Lightening McQueen from Cars
Loveable, NASCAR, Disney, Pixar, kids…all the great ingredients for marketing magic (minus the cute puppies)

9. Blues Brothers Police Car from The Blues Brothers
How much did this scene cost to film this scene?

8. Eco 1 from The Ghostbusters movies
A converted ambulance…what genius!

7. Christine from Christine
To this day I still get antsy whenever I see a Plymouth Fury…especially in Red.

6. Ford Gran Tourino from Starsky & Hutch
Back when Ford stood for great american cars, rather than “Fix or Replace Daily”. One of my favorite TV shows ever, I watched Starsky and Hutch religiously (in re-runs) as a kid. If this were a TV car list this would be way higher.

5. The General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard
It took me years before I realised that there really was no common technology that would allow you to flip a switch and make your car jump. That Dodge Challenger has one of the most awesome sounding engines ever.

4. Bandit 1 from Smokey and The Bandit
Oh I long for the days when beer haulin’, basset hound having, Trans Am driving movie heroes meant top spot at the Box Office.

3. The Batmobile from Batman
When batman first came out, I thought this was the most incredible vehicle ever (next to K.I.T.T of course :).

2. Herbie from The Lovebug
Back when men were men and cars were living ’63 Volkswagen Beetles.

1. DMC-12 from Back to the Future.
Time circuits on, flux capacitor fluxing…Engine…D’ oh! I guess that’s one reason why De Lorean never quite made it commercially the first time.
(Incidentally, according to Wikipedia, Deloreans are back in production in Houston)

Honorable Mention:
K.I.T.T. The most awesome car to hit the big or small screen :) and my personal favorite.
(So..hurry up with the Knight Rider movie already!)

Mini Coopers from the original Italian Job – starring Michael Caine.
Stuntmen back in the day were pretty daring…especially without the fancy remote control systems and CGI we have today.

The Mustang GT fastback from Bullitt
One of the earliest and most influential car chase scenes of the movies came from Bullitt.
