Otherwise known as: The importance of music and setting the tone/mood.
Soundtracks are often at their best when you barely notice they are there. They set the emotional tone and add a lot to a scene. That said, I can't help but laugh at this, just a little, because the bad fake gun noises make it a little silly. It's amazing how much it changes it. But it's still fun to watch.

When I read this I immediately think of this scene:
Because they really are more like suggestions than anything else. The first rule you learn after learning all the rules is that if you carry it off with enough panache, you can break pretty much any one of them.

Libraries...all the girls want 'em.

I find this 'fake' tattoo by Christoph Neimann rather amusing. Then I got thinking about the word recharge and had to look up its etymology because I find things like that interesting:
early 15c., "to reload" (a vessel), from re- "again, back" + charge "load" (q.v.); modeled on M.Fr. rechargier (13c.). Meaning "re-power a battery" is from 1876. Related: Recharged;recharging. The noun is recorded from 1610s.
It was used much earlier than I supposed in relation to batteries.
