Going to the cinema entails putting up with the obnoxious guy next to you laughing loudly in a pitch that sounds similar to a pterodactyl, people kicking your seat and the utter disgrace of others wasting the kernel-ly goodness that is precious popcorn.

Movie fact: In 2008 a mad Scientist started a blog about his unconventional experiments regarding the cure for hiccups. The Scientist believed that hiccups could be permanently cured by the ‘hiccuppee’ chewing a pack of gum followed immediately by three nickels. His blog drew much attention but this did not create enough publicity as many believed the Scientist was just two tuna sandwiches short of a picnic and paid him no attention.
