When buying a new bed, your first criteria is- "Gotta be kongable..."

You're caught in the furniture store testing to make sure the beds meet said criteria.

You've been kicked out of a furniture store for being caught doing said criteria.

You immediately go looking for another furniture store to test the kongability of beds.

when you try ten times to get a kick a** picture, then have to explain to a chiropractor how you could mess up your neck so bad with a desk chair.

Ok, No chiropractors or doctors where actually involved, but ouch. Got my legs too high and all my weight was on my forehead (i think ??? ) and my neck for about one full second before I fell over the rest of the way.

I know, they miserably failed at that chase scene.

They killed Seb off rather than learn from him.  Idiots.

You have the urge to yell at the screen anytime you watch a chase scene, screaming out what the hero *should* be doing.

(After the first day of a recent jam, we had eight traceurs in a hotel room yelling at the opening of "The Terminator" on the TV.  "Vault the car!"  "Go over the fence, you idiot!")

I like how he kept going even after slamming into a million walls with his full bodyweight behind him. Bond's a god.
