* Hollywood doesn't do physics

Neatorama looks at some old Hollywood standbys that just don't happen in real life:

Hollywood always gets this one wrong. On film, thunder doesn?t follow lightning (as in real life, because sound is slower); they occur simultaneously. Similarly, a distant volcano erupts, and the blast is heard immediately rather than five seconds later for each mile. Explosions on the battlefield go boom right away, no matter how far away spectators are. Even a small thing, like the crack of a baseball player?s bat, is simultaneous with ball contact, unlike at a real game.
