I don't wanna know anything about this new Apes film and its been easy cos im not reading anything about it. I wouldnt be pissed off if someone inadvertently told me a plot point cos ive got perspective on the importance of how much i enjoy the films.

My favourite spoiler ever came from a guy with learning difficulties I knew from work.
"Just seen Star Wars?"
"How was it mate?"
" Harrison Ford died."
"Ah, man."

You don't like surprises? I find it hard to enjoy anything that has a decent twist if I know what it is already, because I spend the whole time thinking "oh, maybe it comes after this scene."

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)

There was some study several years ago that concluded that spoilers generally don't hinder enjoyment of a movie or book. It creates a different audience experience, but not a necessarily disappointing one. Courtesy says don't spoil something without another person's permission—why dictate that they can't be surprised—but it's not an obvious evil.

I'm not usually too bothered by it unless it's related to a property that I have a deep investment in, but I usually say that after a year you don't have to give a spoiler warning anymore.

George Will's insights on the use of the Madagascar hissing cockroach with soy cheese as it relates to Tony LaRussa's bunting strategy in the 1988 ALCS runs a bit long at four minutes, but, you know.

They could have edited it down a bit, but that would have necessitated expanding the section on gullmeat as used in calzones. And really, what more needs to be said that we haven't heard a hundred times?
