Television shows and movies have been around for decades, and while the technology has certainly changed, some things seem to have never changed. Yes, we’ve come a long way from “rabbit ears” on television and we don’t have to go the a theatre to see a movie. But have you noticed how other things haven’t changed?
All phone numbers start with the prefix 555.
A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.
When people pay for a taxi, they’ll never look in their wallet as they take out a note. They’ll just grab one at random and hand it over and it’ll always be the exact fare. Same thing for drinks in a bar.
Cars and trucks that crash will almost always burst into flames.
If a killer is lurking in your house, there’s a guaranteed way to flush him out. Just relax and run a bath.

The more things change, the more they stay the same!
