    What other movie events would you like us to explore the real-life impacts of?

    One: Speak up and join the conversation- we encourage respectful debate.
    Two: Respect your community- racism, misogyny, homophobia and hate speech aren’t tolerated.
    Three: Don’t go looking for fights.
    Four: “Be nice.” – Dalton from Roadhouse

      John Wick. Now the basic premise may just be action, but some of the scenes show that there are likely 1000s of highly trained assassins throughout the world. They can travel across borders with ease. They have secret hotels that somehow avoid normal people. The police don't seem to follow up on disturbances at these places. Certain assassins are even able to kill the Pope. How does such a world remain hidden and how tenuous a position of those in power? With this booming industry, it'd be hard to image world leaders don't stay in power without paying for immunity. Even the aspect that people are so dedicated to this secret society that they take day jobs doing mundane tasks to even acting like they're homeless. How would something like this even take hold?

      Yesterday. While it could be a simple examination of a world without the Beatles' music and social impact, there is a very specific event that may matter. Specifically the death of John Lennon. Capman was an unhinged individual who would have likely sought out another "phony". Like another person who targeted Lennon, would he move his target to the 40th President Ronald Reagan? What would happen if he succeeded?

      The Men in Black. From what if aliens are real to what if they fail their mission and an alien video goes live viral. What would it take to maintain this organization? What would literal xenophobia cause? What would finding out we're not the dominant species mean? Would we even try to keep going to space if aliens are real. Or the cover up to hinder our space exploration already in place to stop us from finding alien life.

      @BlackCover95 Given the number of populated planets, it would be like the nuking of a major city. Locally serious but the effect mitigates further out. Economies have a tendency to eventually create work arounds.

      How's the rest of the universe dealing with Thanos and his considerable military might simply turning to dust. Seems like Captain Marvel might really have her hands full with that one. Would other plants send representatives to earth to thank the remaining Avengers for all they had done?

        IRL Sounds like a Good Idea for a SJ Segment, but this was Depressing.
        It should be more about how moments of realism enhanced the Movie
        and how lack of realism can sometimes eject the viewer from their suspension of disbelief.

                              Another random thought. Would the snapped people be legally 5 years older than their physical age? So Peter Parker can go out drinking while still in high school.
                              Or do they all have their DOB artificially raised by 5 years?

                                so basically reversing the snap five years later is to late to safe any one.

                                  They barely touched the hard problems, and made some unfounded assumptions.

                                    13:19 If you had something like a bitcoin wallet which no one else knows about , you would be able to recover it after you came back.
                                    Same if you had gold bar stashed away in a secret location.

                                              The economy post return snap would make the great depression look like a minor inconvenience.

                                                I’ve heard that wiping out half of all plants along with the population would actually destroy the universe, but I feel like Thanos would have taken that into consideration and not wiped out the plants. Hell, maybe he’d create even more.

                                                  Are telling me that nobody in London, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver, Hong Kong or Sydney never said: "It's sad so many people died, but at least house prices have fallen and my rent is now far more affordable."

                                                    My question is, where do you reappear from the snap? If you were on Titan would you reappear on Titan, or what if you were on an airplane at 5000 ft? If you died in the Forrest of Wakanda, is that where you will be?

Relevant experts, could have been fun with a historian also, to give perspective to how societies have handled "similar" situations before. For example the plauge which lead to technical innovations and rise in income for the surviving farmers as 1/3 the population died and manpower was needed

Suddenly, they have pre-snap populations, without the pre-snap economy of scale. Half the population would probably die of starvation, if not more, due to rapid resource shortages.

                                                                            • GilliamDotCom

It felt rushed and wasn’t as nearly flushed out as it should be. They asked complex questions which required multilayered answers, but only gave them about 15 seconds to do so.

                                                                              • dmstrat

Is it only the people that were lost in the Thanos snap? What about all the people that died immediately afterward (plane crashes when the pilots were snapped out, fatal motor vehicle accidents from lost drivers, shipwrecks). How about the people lost in the 5 years span? The people that come back only to find that they lost their loved ones during the 5 years they were "lost" would be like having the snap for them in reverse, but not 'undone'.

East & West united and partied... but then East Germans found their currency disappeared and their life savings were only worth half than before (before the Euro). East Germans who fled East Germany had their land taken away by the government and then re-sold. Now Germany is united and those people wanted their land back but others had legally purchased it. So allot of what you are speaking of already has precedence in Europe. Even Native Americans today trying to get lands etc. back.

Now what would really suck is for those CEOs that disappeared and come back after what seems like 5 seconds and their company is gone all their money is gone.
