That's the sort of thing that sounds funny on paper, but would get decidedly less funny once someone inevitably gets a heart attack.
Well it is a horror movie... not a particularly scary horror movie, but you get my point.  (laugh)

Yes, but people tend to have far more intense reactions to real people jumping at them compared to just seeing things on a screen.

Gröna Lund (a big amusement park in Stockholm) actually had a big problem with their haunted huse attraction that featured employees dressed as
monsters pawing at the visitors as part of the horror due to so many persons reacting to the scare by punching or assaulting the employees.  8-0

Hahaha, damn. That would get you shot in America.

I live in the US, no one got shot. But that was over 20 years ago. This day in time, yeah, you'd either get shot or fired for bullying, harassment, offending, etc.

It grinds my gears that on every international women's day, you invariably find men whining that "Why isn't there a men's day?", not only because it's a pretty shameless attempt to detract from the real issues women face that's meant to be brought to light on this day, but also because there already is an official international men's day on November the 19th.

The comedian Richard Herring spends the whole of International Women’s Day trolling everyone on Twitter asking “When’s International Men’s Day?” (which is a lot of people), and in the process manages to raise thousands of pounds for Refuge.

Here’s his Twitter account:

How ironic that March 9th is "Get over it day"  (laugh)

I'm glad at least one person could turn that mess into something positive!
Happy get over it day, everyone!
I'll admit it's a catchy song, it's just too bad too many people ask others to just get over things whilst lingering and complaining about everything themselves.

I remember (I think) that there was a museum who let women go in for free or half price on that day and men had to pay the normal fee and of course there was whining and complaints. That really pissed me off. It's men's day the rest of the f#####g year so why the hell can't we let our females enjoy something just for them? And I can't understand why a man should have a higher salory than a female if they do exactly the same job. I"m all for equality

Indeed, it reminds me of a guy who was so angry at the woman-only screening of Wonder Woman so he decided to have a man-only screening of the movie Rock of Ages, and nobody stopped him or even expressed any real outrage over him doing so.

There already are tons of things women aren't allowed to do, like joining the freemasons, becoming priests in several religions, and there are a bunch of clubs that are men only, yet you non't see any of the men protesting woman discounts complaining about that.

Sometimes I really grind my own gears but tend to just let what I do annoy others and get stress-relief from that instead of going after the real culprit.
