I learned from watching "Law and Order"...and applied it to real life...
Here's a list of things the various "Law and Order's" have tought me...although this could apply to anything, like CSI...
1. If you're a teenager ditching school you will stumble across a dead body.
2. If you're walking away during a fight with your spouse, you will stumble across a dead body.
3. Never take a job as a trash collector or park cleaner- nothing but dead bodies.
4. Police are always having to interview men on parole who work at the fish market.
5. Detectives are always having to "go get me some evidence."
6. Rich white dudes commit a majority of crimes.
7. A woman who has given birth will always recognize the human placenta being carried in the mouth of a dog running down the street.
8. The 2-7 [27th precinct] encompasses all of Manhattan. If you commit a crime anywhere in Manhattan you can be sure it will be investigated by a detective from the 2-7.
9. Whenever you go to the ME's office or the ballistics lab, the exact same doctor or technician will inverably be on call.
10. The internet is strange and scary, and the only people who use it are pedophiles or stalkers. It is impossible to understand if you are over 30.
11. Hudson University has a higher mortality rate than Sub-Saharan Africa, Riker's Island and heroin combined. Its liability insurance is higher than the GDP of most countries.
12. In New York, ADAs are young, female, and look like models. Sometimes they are black men, but that's an exception.
13. TV stars from the 80s and 90s, if they can't find work once their show is cancelled, move to NYC and commit sex crimes.
What has Law and Order taught you....??
