  • Basement troll


    Yes, I stayed up until 1 in the morning to do that. No, I do not have a life. Mom won't let me leave the basement or talk to girls.

    • MylesofStyles

      You forgot to mention "fake" and "gay".

    • LeO

      Mommy is just making you a gay kid that's all. She got tired of seeing you cry over girls when they cheat on you. As for the basement part you just got ugly teeth with a ugly face only a mother can love.
      But KCCO little buddy.. reach for the stars!

      • Mommy Basement Troll

        It's not for love, just the child benefits money.

  • navydudenamedjoe

    Thanks for ruining my childhood

  • non, a

    …. meh.

  • memz

    I really am not sure why anyone thought this was chive-worthy.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    #12 I think the bigger plot hole is how Lex can figure out this complex, highly specialized computer system, but can't figure out how to turn off a goddamn flashlight

    • jane doe

      It actually is not that complex, it is a real (failed) three dimensional file viewer. That's it. She is browsing files and file folders. She is just dumb, really dumb.

    • because..

      Ever see your very intelligent wife curl up into a little ball when she see's a spider?

    • BMOC

      This was spielbergs way of adding intense drama, it is discussed in the commentary and he does it quite often in his movies regardless. Most people wouldnt even realize, they would be too focused on the action.

      • DeepestBlue2

        It's actually like that in the book that the movie was based on. Irritated the hell out of me and ruined an otherwise decent movie with some REALLY innovative dinosaurs.

  • Melkhiordarkblade

    Except that Hermione gave up the time turner in year 3, and then the time turners were distroyed in year 5.
    Besides even Voldemort and all his evil isn't reason enough to mess with time.
    The point of this moral is:
    Evil and death happens and even with all the magic in the world, you're still human and have to face these horrors and facing them takes courage.

    • Anonymous

      i usually think virginity jokes are douchey but that was the first thing to pop into my head.

      • Melkhiordarkblade

        Being able to read a book equals virginity it seems.

        • aaaayeah....

          Nope, just dorky kids books.

    • mishai

      yeah go back in time and kill Voldie as child is too easy…just let him turn whole wizard society into nazi -killing uncount thousands of innoncent people, torturing, pervertin and terorize 2 generations…still worth your EGO FAP-facing it like a human….thanks…

      • Shawn

        Pretty sure Time Turner's can't go back in time that far. A few hours at most.

        • youwannaknow

          Time Turners can go back as far as one wants, it would just take a really long time to go back days and such since each flip is an hour.

      • Kirk9992

        Didn't u watch the butterfly effect? If u go back that far and change something that major you may no longer exist in the new present.

      • ozed

        yeah dude, children's books are sweet. the other day i read this book about this guy who always goes missing and wears white and red outfits all the time. anyway, to cut a long story short, is a phrase whose origins are long and rambling. so, where was I? oh yeah, I once found a box of mint-condition 1918 liberty-head silver dollars. You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in Zeppelins, dropping coins on people, and one day I seen J. D. Rockefeller flying by. So I run out of the house with a big washtub and…
        … Anyway, about my washtub. I’d just used it that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as… a walking bird. We'd always have walking bird on Thanksgiving with all the trimmings: cranberries, injun eyes, yams stuffed with gunpowder. Then we'd all watch football, which in those days was called "baseball"…

    • tlw

      #11 is invalid, because time travel in the HP series depends on the Novikov self consistency principle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novikov_self-consistency_principle)...

      see also http://9gag.com/gag/5795881 if you can't read more than 100 words like the "virgin joke douche".

      They can't save their death friends, because they are already death…

      • Nina

        "They can't save their death friends, because they are already death…"

        If this was true, how did they save Buckbeak, who was already dead before they went back in time?

    • Jman

      True! For a laugh, YouTube " how it should of ended" Harry potter

  • lazylaz

    #5 Marion does not die. Without Indy there she would have, but he saves her. Also, while the Nazi's would still have killed themselves, without Indy there to grab the ark and signal for help another group of Nazi's would have come along and found the Ark and taken it back to Berlin.

    • Whatdatthere

      And open it in front of Hitler…

      • George Zip

        Yeah, that struck me too. In the movie's flow of events, the ark would indeed have been opened right in front of Hitler and so Hitler and anyone with him would have been killed.

        Thanks a lot, Jones.

        • Pooreman

          See I was going to be all smart like Lazylaz and say "yeh but Marion didn't die" But now I am thinking shit, Indiana Jones' existence caused World War II and countless numbers of lives to be lost through war and genocide…. what a c*nt!

          Worse still, the fact he does meet Marion in Raiders means we were all subjected to Mutt F*ckin' Williams!!!!

        • jasgat66

          I thought the reason they DID open it when they did was to see what was in it so they wouldn't be embarrassed in front of Hitler if it was empty. So, in fact, Hitler wouldn't have been killed if this was the case.

      • dirtysteve99

        Not likely, they would have learned from the first group being all melted and dead I think.

    • C'mon

      It's like bob just cut and pasted this without even looking at it. I got in trouble when I pulled that shit in grade school.

    • Piman

      Jones had the artifact. The nazi's were digging in the wrong place. If he wasn't there, they never would've found the ark!

      • Orukal

        If Jones had never shown up at Marion's bar in Nepal, then the Nazi's would have the headpiece and they wouldn't have been digging in the wrong place.

  • Xena

    i honestly think bob steals all of his posts from other sites. i saw this same post on buzzfeed days ago. way to be original..

    • Hercules

      Hey, I love that name. "Xena". Never seen it bef. . .Oh. Wait.

      Wait to be original, you used douche.

    • Simon

      I hate to be unoriginal, but I've said this before. Only because what you've said has been said before.

      Look at the top and bottom of the post where it credits the source.

    • Anonymoose

      One of the most basic rules of the internet.

      Everything is a repost of a repost of a repost.

      • Craigery

        Wait, not everything on the internet is original? That's crazy talk. What are you going to try to tell me next, that reality TV shows are sometimes fixed, scripted, or edited to be deceiving? Inconceivable!

    • Chiving Dutchman

      I like how you wheep about this, even though It says: "Via Buzzfeed"

    • Ryan

      Nobody cares!

    • TrueStory

      They are all reposts, and guess what…if Bob didn't post it here, I never would have seen it. So thanks Bob, and suck my dick Xena.

  • Aladdin

    Did the person that wrote these even watch Aladdin? When did he freakout about Jasmine not being able to marry a prince? Jafar becomes all powerful and strips Aladdin of the genie's magic, turning him back into a
    "street-rat." Knowing that the law states that only a prince can marry the princess, is about when his final wish dilemma begins.

  • ajr

    #12 Has always bothered me!!!

    • Tom?

      When they are dangling off the wall, you can see the higher ground in the background. The land on the enclosure side has a drop off

    • robsterling

      I want to know how t-Rex snuck up on everybody at the end. Don't they always feel impact tremors as he approaches? Wouldn't they have at least smelled him inside the building? And how did he get inside?

      • helordvincen

        In the theater, he crashed through the wall. They took that out on the video release.

    • AptivaDave

      I think that the book had an explanation on how the T-Rex got over the dropoff.

    • YoSoyFiesta

      and if it was so damn easy for that other bitch to run down the cliff and see the car why didn't they just walk back up to the road rather than walking through where all the damn dinosaurs were!?

  • klö

    #12 that's hardly a plot whole

    • i8paula


    • m.c.

      except that if the jeep doesn't fall then they don't fall and they don't get separated and end up having to circle around the park to get back to the control center…

    • Bob Loblaw

      You half to give it the benefit of the doubt.

      • Paul

        I HALF to? Are you sure it isn't HAVE?

    • Alumni72

      Don't you mean 'whardly'?

  • MonkeyMadness

    #4 I thought about this through the whole movie! Where the hell do they think the mysterious presents came from?

    • StevieB

      This goes for every single movie with Santa in it.

    • Cpt. Dangle

      The presents come from each other and they don't tell each other to keep it as a surprise…people do that in real life too derp

  • MonkeyMadness

    #2 I thought about this too, but seriously, how many faces do you remember from 30 years ago when you only knew them a week unless you had some photographs?

    • http://echogeo.wordpress.com/ echogeo

      What about the Calvin Klein underwear? Doesn't that ring a bell when she's doing laundry?

    • George

      I think it's George who would start to get suspicious… why does our son look exactly like that guy we met for a week in high school?

      • http://www.speak-easysports.com Eric

        If you really want to talk about something, in Part 1, Marty's girlfriend is played by a different actress, in the 2 and 3. So he goes back in time and his girlfriend becomes the wayy hotter Elizabeth Shue.. maybe that is a win..

    • ISNBH

      Maybe that's why she drinks.

    • jasgat66

      What about every time they heard Johnny B Goode on the radio?

  • ZiaChiver

    #6 Maybe it's whatever timezone they're in… I don't go walking around saying "it's 10:23 A.M. in The Gambia. I'm late!"

    • Uncle Fred

      I say something like that every morning before I have my first whiskey.

  • Claire

    Hermione gives the time turner back to professor Mcgonagall at end of her third year, because she drops muggle studies and divination so she doesn't need it for school anymore. The time turners are kept in the Department of mysteries in the Ministry of Magic, and they get destroyed at the end of the fifth year during the battle for the prophecy. Not a plot hole.

    • Tom?

      But they don't mention that in the movie though do they?

      • Kzo

        Well that must be one of the 'few' things they forgot to mention.

  • Eric L

    #12 Not really a plot-hole, more like a big error. Always bothered me though.

    • mrclint

      I remember that I read about that cliff on a site somewhere. According to that site it isn't a plothole and not a error. The cliff is where it should be but the camera angles hides it.

    • ghostwriter

      I thought about that too the first time I saw the movie. Because when the goat was there it was level. When the T-Rex walked out it was level. But then there is a 100ft drop down with a tree? what the hell?

  • MonkeyMadness

    #6 Maybe they should have just said "Do not feed them after sundown."?

    • Turrebo

      …or "don't feed them at all, they're trouble enough as it is".

    • Craigery

      You still have the same problem. Even an hour BEFORE sundown, it's AFTER yesterday's sundown. At what time does it suddenly become safe to feed them? Sunrise? Noon? It's never explained.

      • MonkeyMadness

        How about just don't feed them when it's dark outside? I'm sure the mogwai's metabolism isn't hardwired into what time it is. Wouldn't daylight savings time screw them up?
        It would be easier to accept that they are only affected when the sun went down. I guess. What the hell do I know? 😛

  • Eric

    #7 doesn't Jafar change him back to a regular dude? That would explain why he is no longer a prince.

    • Urethra Franklin

      (Marv Albert Voice) "From Downtown….YES!"

    • Guest

      Yeah and his first wish was to escape from being trapped under sand. No movie plot hole here!

      • guest

        He actually didn't wish to escape from being trapped under the sand, he tricked Genie into doing it.

  • http://www.GothamAuto.com Corvo

    #12 Jurassic Park: This whole scene has always bothered me. The whole cliff thing bothered me so much that I vividly remember seeing this movie 4 times in the theater JUST to see if I could figure out what the hell was actually going on. WHILE watching the whole scene so intently, you can also notice a few other mistakes. Watch the driver door on the first Explorer. It's open, then closed, then open again! Also, the glass roof on the Explored is broken, then whole again, then broken! WTF!

    • greg

      There are so so many continuity errors in this movie it's ridiculous. It's almost as if Spielberg decided to fire the entire editing department halfway through production. For a real mind fuck watch the scene where Ellie runs toward the electrical shed. She jumps over the same branch like 3 times. Still kicks serious ass though.

    • Yeahhh

      You saw this 4 times in the theater???? Oh man…

  • C-spot

    A) Accept the premise, they're movies. B) Learn some basic science, and apply it. C) If you wash in salt water it will give you sores.

    • iPeed

      I cannot find the science behind C

  • ukulelemike

    #12, because despite them tiny arms, T-Rex is an excellent climber!

    • Ari214

      Hahaha. Best response!

    • Yuppp

      Even making a bed is difficult for a T.rex

  • Jay

    #9 If you have any clue what the fuck any of this means, get off this site. Now.

    • Craigery

      Why, is this site only for meatheads who have no interests beyond beer, sex, and macho movies?

      • Jay

        No, but it is definitely geared more toward men in general. Who gives a damn about a plot hole in a chick flick that I'm guessing most of the people here have never seen?

        • The_Dood

          We actually watched that movie in school my Junior year for sociology class. That would've been 2004-05.

          But, do you think the Chivettes just send in pictures and don't browse the site? They look at posts too, I would guess.

    • Alumni72

      Bite me. I've seen this movie more than once – I have a daughter, and we like to watch movies together, and this is one of her favorites.

    • TrueStory

      I've seen this movie a couple times. I love me some Lacey Chabert.

    • http://twitter.com/andwordscomeout @andwordscomeout

      Yeah, sorry dude. It's written by Tina Fey and expertly acted. Welcome to 2013, where it's ok for men to like something other than Coors and rotary saws. Grow a little.

    • vash the stampede

      You clearly know what the movie is about in order to have formed an opinion..
      … Bye

  • tuffgong1979

    Sled would go through the door if he turned it sideways………Bob has issues with spatial awareness, never played Tetris I guess.

    • McBeastie666

      turned it sideways while sliding down the stairs riding on top of it?

      • tuffgong1979

        I did slightly misunderstand, but the typical wooden toboggan is between is between 15"-20" wide and the typical front door is anywhere between 30"-36" wide. Kid being at the top of the stairs and the door at the bottom causes a slight optical illusion, original spatial awareness comment applies.

    • PDiddily420

      I think he is referring to the fact that the door and stairs are not lined up so he would have to make a slight left turn at the bottom of the stairs to make it out the door(impossible), not the fact that the sled is too wide to fit through the door

  • Craigery

    #5 isn't really a plot hole, it's just an observation. The movie is about the adventures of Indiana Jones. Whether he had much of an influence on the outcome or not, he still had an awesome adventure.

  • osterberg

    #10 he clearly ordered online on his ipad using the neighbors wifi
