Spoiler Alert Rules

A while ago I ranted about how people should be flogged for ruining the ends of movies or books before others have had an opportunity to watch or read. In this case it was a spoiler alert that ruined a book ending for me, while the series was still fairly new.

I did admit that when someone comes up with rules for how spoiler alerts works, there should also be a statute of limitations on this kind of thing. With that in mind, I have come up with a list of spoilers that no one can get angry about.

And in case you're looking for the expected pastoral twist where I spoil the end of this world and tell you that Jesus wins and evil will be punished... I'm going to tell you right now that I won't do that. That's right, a spoiler within a post about spoilers. Consider your mind blown.

So, get angry if you want, but consider yourself warned. What follows will spoil your day if you have, in fact, lived under a rock for the last 50 years.
  1. The Titanic...yeah, it sinks.
  2. J.R. Ewing wasn't actually dead for an entire season of Dallas
  3. Rocky wins the fights
  4. Marty McFly does get back to 1985....3 times!
  5. Bruce Willis is dead the entire time in The Sixth Sense. The boy actually sees dead people!
  6. Darth Vader...I don't know how to break the news, but he's actually Luke Skywalker's father.
What would you add to this list?
