21 Films I Haven’t Seen That Are In IMDB’s Top 30

One thing that I have picked up on from the Internet is that people love lists. They love lists of:

– things that remind them of the 90s
– celebrities and their injuries (when I had a sore back once, I Googled this to make me feel better. For the record, George Clooney has a bad back).
– burgers, coffee shops (cafes) in Melbourne
– things to see while driving along The Great Ocean Road
– George Clooney movies (it’s very impressive given his sore back)


Today, I started to come up with a list that I would share with you. I landed on the click-baity title that would be sure to get you hook, line and sinker “Twenty Five Things I’ve Learnt from the age of 18 to 25”.

Unfortunately, within the 15 minutes I gave myself to write — I have rituals to get to — I was only able to list one item for the list:

1) Fly fishing is a type of fishing that uses a fake fly as bait (I was under the impression that it was called fly fishing because the line would fly in the air)

Note: Add joke to tie hook, line and sinker into fly fishing.

While thinking of potential lists, I began to think about my two party tricks: People’s astonishment that I don’t drink alcohol and the fact that I haven’t seen Star Wars or Schindler’s List.
