To each his own. To me my own.

FD Marathon

The movie Final Destination 5 is out and I’m dying to see it. Friday I found out that Keith not only hasn’t seen 3 or 4 (the usual average missed in a series of movies) but he has yet to see any of them. I can now report we officially have a Final Destination edumacation – that is, except for the new and improved #5. Full-screen trailer can be seen here.

For those who don’t know what the movies are about, each starts something like this. One person within a group has a vision of something catastrophic that’s about to happen. This ‘vision’ of impending doom shakes the person up, causing them to freak out and immediately abandon whatever it is they’re doing. A small group of people also follow his/her lead, thereby saving their own lives when that vision actually comes to life a few minutes later. Thing is, this whole new series of events screws up what they call ‘death’s design’ – so one by one, each person of that group meets their fate in some freak accident. And, they die in the same pecking order as they would have had they not exited their original… final destination.

I haven’t watched this much tube in like five years or more – my eyes hurt. FD1 Friday night, FD2 Saturday morning, FD3 Saturday night and the FD4 Sunday afternoon. Any Final Destination trivia can be thrown this way, please.

In an endeavor to keep my very own final destination at least an arm’s length distance or better, I’ve learned a few things not to do…

    • Never, under any circumstance, should you stand anywhere near a barbed wire fence.
    • When boarding your local roller coaster, think twice about actually belting yourself in.
    • Always look both ways before crossing the street. Twice. Three times, even better.
    • When entering a tanning bed, never pull it all the way closed.
    • If you ever go visit Paris, make sure you’re not on Flight 180. In fact, if you see those three numbers listed anywhere near you in that particular order – run, don’t walk.
    • When swimming in a public pool, it may actually benefit you to wear your swimmies.
    • Avoid nail guns at all costs. Hammers still do the job well, with a little more effort involved.
    • A fire escape may not serve as an actual escape.
    • If your car has had electrical problems in the past – you may want to avoid car washes.
    • Never ever enter an elevator with someone who is holding a box of prosthetic hooks.
    • Duct tape has an endless variety of uses – including safeguarding your house.
    • If a pigeon continually crashes into your dentist’s office window – leave immediately and find another dentist.
    • It’s not a bad thing to pay attention to to your visions and inner voices. Just don’t let it drive you crazy…

  2. I am a sci-fi fan but never heard of the FD series. Wasn’t there a one episode movie based on this a while back? I saw that. Perhaps it was actually part of FD.

  4. I love movie marathons!

    Your list is excellent! I already have most of these covered since I don’t like rollercoasters, I hate birds, I avoid most power tools, and I gave up tanning beds years ago. I think I just added a few years to my life.

      Thanks, Thoughts – I can’t wait to see number 5!! And see, we can even take something out of it – it’s never in vain if you learn something, right? 😉

  5. Sounds fun.
    I usually use elevator and sometimes ride the elevator to the thirtieth floor of the building.
    I don’t like elevator since it’s dangerous.

      I’m not a big fan of elevators, but my fear of extreme heights ‘rises above’ that. I’m okay as long as I don’t actually see how high I am! 🙂

  6. I hate rollar coasters and fireworks!

      I love coasters, I’m just hoping this movie hasn’t totally ruined them for me. The coaster scene was intense.
