WE THINK YOU’RE COOL.
NO WE DON’T. WE THINK YOU ARE THE EMBODIMENT OF SATAN.
At a count of 15, Marvel’s The Avengers is 2012’s most mistake filled movie so far (The Hunger Games is second at 13). Here are some of the mistakes that have been identified thus far—-
Factual error: The video game company NAMCO Bandai is misspelled twice as “NAMECO Bandai” in the end credits.
Audio problem: When one of the computer operators resumed playing Galaga, the sound effect heard is for an enemy ship attempting to capture the player’s ship, but what’s shown on screen is normal gameplay.
Continuity: In multiple shots where Iron Man is flying around the city, there are cuts on his forehead. However, when he is lying on the ground and Thor rips the face mask of his suit off, the cuts on his forehead have disappeared.
Continuity: After Iron Man takes out a worm “Jonah style”, he crashes into a cab and stop about two feet away. He gets up, there is a quick shot of him on the inside of his suit, and when he gets up, the cab is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity: Near the end of the big battle scene, Captain America is winged by a blaster bolt. When he is helped to his feet by Thor, he is holding his side, and there is visible damage to his uniform. In later shots, all evidence of being shot is gone from his uniform.
Continuity: Just after Dr. Banner asks Nick Fury how many spectrometers the Helicarrier has access to, he takes off his jacket, rolls it up, and puts it under his arm. In the next shot, the jacket is suddenly draped over his arm.
Continuity: When the vehicle bringing Captain America & Agent Coulson to the Helicarrier lands, in the wide shot, as the vehicle touches down, the wing tips fold downwards and inwards as if preparing for storage on board. But in the next shots outside the vehicle as Captain America disembarks, the wing tips are in their extended and locked flight position.
Factual error: In the scene in Stuttgart, we see a “reserved parking” sign written as “Reservierten Parken”. In correct German it would be written “Reservierter Parkplatz”.
Continuity: Throughout the film, Tony Stark’s chest ring can be seen glowing through his shirt except for two occasions when it’s suddenly off - after Loki escapes from the helicarrier, and when Loki and Tony Stark are talking in Stark tower.
Continuity: When Captain America is punching the heavy bags and Fury first walks in, the bag that Captain America is punching (not the one he already broke) changes from not having duct tape around the middle, to having it, and then back.
Audio problem: When Bruce Banner meets Natasha Romanoff for the first time in Calcutta, there’s a shot from behind her where Natasha is heard talking but her reflection in the small mirror behind Bruce isn’t.

Pocket Tazer Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife.
A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this:
Last weekend I saw something at Larry’s Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 14th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized Tazer.
The effects of the Tazer were supposed to be short lived, with no long term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety…??
WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home…
I loaded two AAA batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button and pressed it against a metal surface at the same time; I’d get the blue arc of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs.
AWESOME!!! Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Julie what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave.
Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn’t be all that bad with only two AAA batteries, right?
There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking that I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target.
I must admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second) and then thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat. But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did want some assurance that it would work as advertised.
Am I wrong?
So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and Tazer in another.
The directions said that:
A one-second burst would shock and disorient your assailant;
A two-second burst was supposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; and
A three-second burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water.
Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries.
All the while I’m looking at this little device measuring about 5” long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference (loaded with two itsy, bitsy AAA batteries); pretty cute really, and thinking to myself, ‘no possible way!’
What happened next is almost beyond description, but I’ll do my best.
I’m sitting there alone, Gracie looking on with her head cocked to one side so as to say, ’ Don ‘t do it stupid,’ reasoning that a one second burst from such a tiny lil ole thing couldn’t hurt all that bad.. I decided to give myself a one second burst just for heck of it.
I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and…
HOLY MOTHER OF GOD. WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. WHAT THE…!!!
I’m pretty sure Hulk Hogan ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on the carpet, over and over and over again. I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, both nipples on fire, testicles nowhere to be found, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs! The cat was making meowing sounds I had never heard before, clinging to a picture frame hanging above the fireplace, obviously in an attempt to avoid getting slammed by my body flopping all over the living room.
If you ever feel compelled to ‘mug’ yourself with a Tazer, One note of caution:
There is NO such thing as a one second burst when you zap yourself! You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor!
A three second burst would be considered conservative!
A minute or so later (I can’t be sure, as time was a relative thing at that point), I collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape.
My bent reading glasses were on the mantel of the fireplace.
The recliner was upside down and about 8 feet or so from where it originally was.
My triceps, right thigh and both nipples were still twitching.
My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs.
I had no control over the drooling.
Apparently I had crapped in my shorts, but was too numb to know for sure, and my sense of smell was gone.
I saw a faint smoke cloud above my head, which I believe came from my hair.
I’m still looking for my testicles and I’m offering a significant reward for their safe return!
PS: My wife can’t stop laughing about my experience, loved the gift and now regularly threatens me with it!
If you think education is difficult, try being stupid!!!!
Brilliant, well played sir.
