Man always cries at bit in Die Hard where cop rediscovers the magic of killing

A MAN has admitted he always cries at Die Hard when the black cop who was afraid to draw his gun rediscovers the magic of killing. 

Nathan Muir, who lists the 1988 action movie as his all-time favourite Christmas film, says that however prepared he tried to be for the heart-warming scene he always ends up in absolute floods.

He continued: “It’s so emotional anyway, what with McClane getting that machine gun and blowing up the lift-shaft. Oh and I suppose he gets back with his wife.

“But there’s this wonderful subplot about Powell, the sad cop who can’t work the streets anymore after he accidentally killed a kid even though it sounds like it was totally the kid’s fault.

“Anyway, right at the end after Hans Gruber’s fallen to his death they’re all outside celebrating when suddenly Karl, the terrorist with the Michael Bolton hair, bursts out alive and ready for vengeance.

“But at that very moment he’s shot dead, like five times, and everyone looks round and it’s the cop because McClane’s inspiring example has given him the strength to kill again.

“Such a life-affirming moment. That’s the real meaning of Christmas, right there.”

90 per cent of men will happily drink disgusting coffee served by attractive female barista

MOST men will happily drink a vile coffee if it was made by an attractive woman, scientists have confirmed.

Research by the Institute for Studies found that men would drink a freakish mixture of hot milk and chocolate dusting if it was made by an attractive girl that they are inexplicably trying to impress.

Professor Henry Brubaker said: “If it was a young student type guy just trying to earn enough money to get through his studies then nine out of 10 men would immediately demand a proper cup of coffee.

“They also might call him ‘kid’ or ‘son’ when doing it just to reinforce their position in the cafe as an alpha male.

“Where as if it’s a beautiful young woman who made it, the men would not only drink it they would even return the cup to the counter to save the girl having to come and take it back.”

Coffee drinking suit wearer Martin Bishop said: “I go into two cafes during my lunchtime. One where the coffee’s pretty terrible but the waitress is lovely and the other where I can actually drink the cup of coffee that I buy.”
