Lessons learned from watching 24…

Lessons learned from watching 24:

  1. Don’t trust anyone. Everyone is susceptible to corruption and will turn on you.
  2. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Case in point: Season 4 Jack falls in love with Audrey and vice versa. The love affair is doomed to fail due to her complex feelings for her ex-husband. In the end, neither get her.
  3. The enemy is sometimes closer than you think.
  4. Everyone is shady.
  5. Everyone uses people to get ahead
  6. Some people are okay with murdering their children
  7. The President is surrounded by terrorists
  8. The US government is too big to fail
  9. Watch out for the First Lady
  10. Everyone cheats on their significant other. If they aren’t cheating, they are thinking about it!
  11. Don’t drink the tea       
  12. Watch out for family
  13. When in doubt kill everyone
  14. Good guys weapons never run out of ammo
  15. Jack changes magazines at inopportune times
  16. Tough guys are overly sensitive
  17. Bad guys can’t hit anything
  18. CTU’s computer protection is low grade
  19. If anything, bad happens everyone holds Jack responsible
  20. Jack is always on the verge of a divorce or breakup
  21. Heroin addicts are tactical geniuses
  22. The screening process at CTU is non-existent
  23. Nothing is ever as simple as it appears
  24. Mommy may poison your girlfriend, but you can trust her to keep you safe!
  25. If your girl is pulling away from you, let go. She wouldn’t be running away if she wanted to be with you!
  26. Every romantic happening in 24 is amped up intensely. Kissing requires shoving your partner forcefully against the wall, even holding hands looks painful!
  27. No one tells the truth
  28. Schizophrenia is no joke, keep them away from sharp objects
  29. Speaking of medical issues, take your pills!
  30. Daddy will authorize your torture
  31. Everyone wants to be loved, but not everyone deserves to be
  32. Husband will kill you if you disobey
  33. People react weirdly to being shot
  34. Every threat has multiple levels
  35. There is only the truth, so do what you must to obtain it

Of course, these are lessons learned from a television series. Therefore, it has no bearing in real life (some of it may be applicable) but I thought I would share some humor this evening.

Freeman out.
