The dictionary defines “double standards” as “A rule of good behavior that, unfairly, some people are expected to follow or achieve, but other people are not.” Recently, one woman got online to vent about the double standard she was facing at home.

Great birthday party! Bunch of kids running around, the same 5 songs on repeat. You stroll off on your own, check out the gifts table and stuff some of those chocolate cookies into your pocket for later.You stumble on some nice balloons floating around. And because you have no self-control, you grab one and start inhaling that Helium. Everyone else is outside playing games, pinning the tail on the donkey.And...it’s awesome! The first thing you notice is your voice changing. We’ve all done it at least once in our lifetime. Your voice gets super high-pitched and squeaky for a couple of seconds, you gotta keep inhaling through the balloon though, it doesn’t last very long.
You almost fall down on the floor as you jolt awake at the airport. Surprisingly, it’s the silence that has woken you up. Usually, airports are full of hectic activity. Passengers are in a hurry to catch their flight. Announcements are made every minute. Planes take off and land.
This is it... the end! You’re packing up everything you can in whatever bags you have. Food, clothes, toiletries. The news in the background goes on, red alerts flash all over the screen. You check your watch, and you know it’s time. You haven’t even finished packing yet.
Oh boy, you can’t stop seeing images of funny pandas on your final exam sheet. All those late night YouTube videos hit you hard, huh? You scribble down some words hoping that something makes sense. You look at your watch and realize you’ve got only 10 minutes to finish. Panic mode is officially on. But no one knows your watch has a pinch of magic in it.You click the stop button on your watch and relax. Don’t worry, no one will turn to dust and half the universe won’t disappear. You simply freeze everything in time except yourself. With this ability, you can stop the time for 1 minute a [=1] day. So, after freezing the time, you get to one of your classmates, take a picture of the assignment, and head back to your seat. You unfreeze the time and write down the proper answer. Phew! At least you can guarantee a passing grade. (Um I’m Steve from Legal: Wanna make sure you know that Bright Side does not condone cheating on a test. Okay, carry on...)
Oh boy. You find yourself in the mysterious ruins of an ancient city. You’re the only member of the expedition who has managed to make it here. You’re walking through a dark maze when you accidentally activate a trap! Whoa, that’s a strange sound.Suddenly, a huge rock starts rolling towards you down the hallway! You run as fast as you can, jumping over debris. A final dash, and... Phew! This room looks like a treasury! Gold coins and gems are scattered everywhere.You go wide-eyed with astonishment. That’s enough money to live a life of luxury for decades on end! But it’s not the shiny gold that interests you. It’s an old lamp that lies in the rubble. As soon as you pick it up, the lamp starts shaking, and a huge genie jumps out of it!
Filmmakers sometimes miss errors in their quest for an exceptional shot.

Oh, no! Your cat knocked down your mug. Coffee is all over your expensive rug. Let’s freeze time for a couple of moments and see exactly how long it will take for coffee to spill on the floor. In regular time, it should take about a second for the initial knockdown of the mug and for gravity to do its job. Your cat is giving those menacing eyes while doing it. Yikes. 24 or 25 frames per second means that a video you see on the screen looks exactly like people moving in real life. When the first-ever movies were made, cameras didn’t have the technology to support 25 frames per second. That’s why the movements were sped up and exaggerated. Fast-forward to the present day, and we have technology that can capture the tiniest details.
Look at these 2 pictures. Can you spot the difference? Yup, one pinkie looks a bit off, and it’s all because of something you carry with you all day. If your pinkie looks like this, then you’re in danger! Nah, I’m just kidding. This happens when you’re holding your smartphone in such a position that the weight on your pinkie makes it look weird. There’s nothing particularly wrong with that except the way it looks after.

You look back at the street and see nothing but a dust storm. Your house starts shaking. You run downstairs and stand in the middle of the road. You’re just in time to see the buildings in your neighborhood fade away.

Watching a movie is an immersive experience in a world where thousands of things can happen in a matter of seconds. Most times when watching a great film we focus on the events of the story and we leave out some details that don’t necessarily catch our attention. For example why, in Finding Nemo, was Gill the only fish that was always thinking about escaping from the fish tank. Nor did we question why in X-Men, Magneto could smash and shake furniture, but could not move a small metal coin. Today, we’ll tell you the reasons behind these mysteries and more.

Even though the existence of parallel worlds has not yet been proven, some people happen to find entryways into alternative universes when they least expect it, and it can actually happen to any of us. For example, you may notice that your cat and its reflection are behaving in a different way in a photo you’ve just taken. Or when you look at your watch to find out the time, you may suddenly find a portal into a different dimension. Sometimes having a closer look at your ordinary surroundings is enough to realize that magic is all around you.
Nice bartenders who offer free cocktails and snacks aren’t always sincere: perhaps they’re trying to gain your trust to trick you. They can be true wizards who turn wine into champagne and strong tea with pepper into expensive cognac so well that you don’t even notice it.
Sometimes real life can be more impressive than any Hollywood blockbuster, and the same goes for thrillers — scriptwriters often find inspiration in events that actually happened.
