  1. Masturbation is a natural and safe way to improve sexual health, promote relational intimacy, and reduce unwanted pregnancy. Until the early modern age, moralists and theologians considered masturbation a “sin against nature” whereas medical professionals left it largely unnoticed. The general public still considers masturbation to be a sensitive and uncomfortable topic to discuss. Because masturbation has no reproductive goal, it can be seen as unnatural, and the stigma that surrounds masturbation continues to prevent rational discourse, which supports the continuation of silence and myths. Here are seven such questions that you may have had about masturbation but always felt too embarrassed to ask, given the stigma around it. 1. How much is too much? © istock It can be practiced by people across age groups and gender. Despite common beliefs and myths, there are actually no physically harmful side effects of masturbation. However, excessive masturbation can harm your relationships and everyday life. Other than that, masturbation is a fun, normal, and healthy act. 2. How often can one masturbate? © istock Masturbation is a normal, healthy part of human sexuality. However, if you feel like you are losing control, or the need to masturbate is interfering with your everyday life or replacing *** in a relationship, you can consult a doctor as too much of anything is considered bad. It’s a common belief that masturbation causes erectile dysfunction (inability to get or maintain an erection) and can eventually lead to major depressive disorder. So, too much/frequent masturbating especially basic porn may contribute to ED by desensitizing you to certain imagery and physical intimacy. The common risk factors for ED however include cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, tobacco use, high cholesterol, low testosterone hormones, lower urinary tract symptoms, metabolic syndrome, and depression. 3. Can too much masturbation make the ***** insensitive? How does it affect Erectile Dysfunction? © istock Masturbation may affect penile sensitivity during *** because of the technique. Hence, sexual health experts recommend changing your technique during masturbation to restore sensitivity levels during ***. Masturbation and porn use aren’t inherently problematic, and neither can they directly cause erectile dysfunction. But your technique does make a difference. For example, if you typically masturbate sitting down or with an extremely tight grip (“death grip”), you may have trouble obtaining or maintaining an erection during partnered play. That’s because your body has been trained to respond to a seated position or “death grip,” both of which typically aren’t replicated during partnered ***. If this becomes a problem for you and your partner, you may find it helpful to take a weeklong break from any sexual stimulation so that your body can reset. From there, gradually ease back into it by using different techniques. 4. What are some benefits of masturbating? © istock Masturbation is a healthy sexual activity. It has many benefits for your physical and mental health. Though there are limited studies on the benefits of masturbation, there are studies on sexual intercourse and stimulation. Research and anecdotal reports suggest that sexual stimulation, including stimulation through masturbation, may help you relieve built-up stress, sleep better, boost your mood, relax, feel pleasure, relieve cramps, release sexual tension and lead to better ***. For couples, experts suggest mutually masturbating to explore different desires, as well as avoiding pregnancy. Self-pleasuring also helps you prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs). 5. Is it safe to use lubricants to masturbate? What kinds of lubricants (if yes)? © istock Lubricant is a specially formulated gel or liquid that can be applied to intimate areas to increase pleasure and ease discomfort during ***. But lube isn’t just for sexual penetration. It can also be awesome when used during masturbation. If you prefer a little extra stimulation while you masturbate, you can use water-based gel lubricants. You can also refer to silicone lubricant as it doesn’t dry out quickly and prevents the skin of the ***** from becoming chafed, dried out, and desensitized from intense friction. 6. Does masturbation deteriorate your performance in bed? What are the complications/challenges that masturbation can lead to? © Pexels Masturbation is a safe way to learn about your body, practice self-love, and get a better sense of what turns you on during ***. There’s no scientific evidence that masturbating before *** has any effect- negative or positive. Frequent masturbation can lead to the habit of getting into addictive masturbation and having *** with your partner. This may sometimes affect your mental health and lead to erectile dysfunction. 7. Can masturbation help in better orgasms? © Unsplash Masturbation helps in having better *** and lets one understand the kind of sexual pleasure the body wants. Especially noteworthy for the ones who struggle to get turned on, masturbation is suggested to avoid sexual dysfunction and low *** drive. Sometimes, men masturbating before partnered *** can last longer with their partner because it takes longer to reach orgasm the second time around.

  2. There are certain names in every industry that resonate with both hard-core fans and casual supporters. Even if you haven’t watched a single Bollywood movie, chances are you may have heard of Shah Rukh Khan, or if you have never followed Tennis, you probably have heard of Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer. Similarly, even if you have never seen a single football match in your life, you will definitely know who Lionel Messi is. Budweiser One of the most talented sportsmen this decade has seen, Messi has won countless trophies, scored 100s of goals and paved his way into the hearts of millions of supporters. Since his club debut in 2004, Messi has been a part of the Spanish FC Barcelona and has led the team to some amazing victories. Known as “La Pulga” or “the Flea”, he is a GOAT through and through. In his childhood, ‘Leo’ Messi found his greatest supporter in his grandma, Celia who accompanied him to all his games and became his inspiration for unparalleled success. By age 10, he went on to create and break many records in the history of the game and his journey to greatness is still not over. Achievers like him deserve to be celebrated and that is exactly what Budweiser decided to do when they launched their limited edition bottles to honour him. In Dec 2020, Messi scored his 644th goal for Barcelona and to commemorate that and his glorious career, Budweiser 0.0 rolled out a 360 campaign, part of which is a series of exquisite murals depicting his awe-inspiring journey at iconic locations in Mumbai [Chapel road, Bandra] and Delhi [Hauz Khas Village], offering fans an insider’s perspective into his humble beginnings as a young boy, along with some lesser-known peaks and hardships of his career. This campaign will see the launch of the limited edition bottles in India and also give fans an insider’s perspective into his life, through artwork that creatively represents his lesser-known triumphs and hustle that significantly shaped his life and career over the years. Budweiser Lionel Messi’s journey and success have always aligned with Budweiser’s stance on brewing overnights. So, as part of the tribute, Budweiser plans to host exclusive walking tours, ‘The Path of Greatness', in both Mumbai and Delhi. Upon completion, fans stand a chance to watch Messi play live, win exclusive memorabilia, Budweiser Streetwear Co. merchandise, among other exciting giveaways. The murals cover walls and show his journey to success as well as pay homage to his unparalleled career. Each mural also has a QR code that will help you see the entire journey of this campaign across both cities. When you choose to walk the tour, you don’t just get to celebrate your favourite player but also get some really exciting prizes, which in itself is a win-win. This dedication brings together the king of football with the king of beer and every fan knows that these two are the ideal combination. After all, who watches a football match without a beer, right? So, whether you are a die-hard Messi fan, a fan of the game or just someone who loves a chilled Budweiser, book your slot for this awesome walk-through today because no one should be missing this.

  3. The skin-trend that emerged to be the winner in the latter half of 2020 and shall continue its reign in 2021, is definitely 'Skinimalism'. It might seem bizarre at first but with no exact source to point at, broadly speaking, this trend came into the mainstream when social media users on Pinterest couldn't stop posting about it. And you've probably guessed it by now, 'Skinimalism' can be loosely defined as embracing your natural skin with, sometimes, a touch of super-minimal makeup. It's almost like an evolved version of the 'No-Makeup-Makeup-Look'. © iStock So, what makes this trend so desirable? In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic halted all our plans for the year as most of us were stuck at home amid the pandemic. In the latter half of the year, when things started opening up, and people were finally stepping out, it didn't make sense to use makeup under a mask. © iStock Amid these new-found struggles that we were all dealing with, this trend is like a blend of minimal makeup (think a touch of concealer, an emollient lip balm, and maybe a bit of colour correction) and consistent skincare together. Wearing a mask, anyway, means that our skin requires more TLC than ever before to fight the pesky 'maskne' and other skin troubles. A mix of skincare and minimal makeup subverts unrealistic beauty standards and attempts to be more skin-positive and who doesn't want more of that? © iStock Although this trend is relatively new, most Bollywood actors have always been following it. We're especially talking about actors like Aditya Roy Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, Ayushmann Khurana, and John Abraham. We know that these actors always use a hint of makeup before they step out. In an interview with MensXP, Aditya Roy Kapoor even went ahead and said that he has been applying "basic make-up for 15 odd years now." © iStock In fact, his skincare routine simply involves regular hydration and taking care of his skin. That is true for most other actors. While some actors take it up a notch in films, like Ranveer Singh's look from Padmaavat to Ayushmann's look from Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. © menwithmakeup/Twitter © menwithmakeup/Twitter However, what's common is how these men have never shied away from a combination of subtle makeup and skincare that enhances their facial structure and features. These are all things that Skinimalism stands for too. View the full article
  4. Mohammed Siraj might just be a couple of series old in international Tests but the kind of impact he has managed to leave on the field every time he has gotten the opportunity to play red-ball cricket for India has been impressive. In the fourth and final match of the India-England series, the first day action at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi stadium led to some early progress made by the hosting side as England found themselves struggling to score runs without losing wickets, at least in the first session. View this post on Instagram Following Axar Patel scalping two important wickets of England openers Dom Sibley and Zak Crawley in incredible fashion, it was Siraj’s turn to join the action and he did so in the best way possible - by removing the opposing skipper and England’s best batsman off the field. On the very first delivery of the 13th over of the day, Siraj stunned Joe Root with a direct delivery right in front of the stumps while adding some extra pace to it. Unable to read the bowler on time, Root ended up exposing his front leg to the delivery and got dismissed on an LBW appeal. View this post on Instagram The dismissal was so clear and obvious that when the English skipper walked up to his batting partner Jonny Bairstow to ask whether he should go for a review, his teammate simply shook his head in disapproval and Root ended up walking back to the pavilion without any contest. And while getting Joe Root out was incredible, fans of the Indian cricket team made a rather uncanny observation about what happened after Siraj had taken the wicket. As the Men in Blue huddled around the pacer in celebration, a peculiar face, that of Mayank Agarwal could be seen right next to Siraj, while engaging in a routine ritual every time the latter picked a wicket, regardless of where or against whom the match was being played. The wayyy Mayank alwayys der dedicating Siraj 's Wicket to his Dad >>>>#indvengpic.twitter.com/LwkZzXKdjI — Gajal (@KLaassyGajal) March 4, 2021 Replacing one of the fielders, Agarwal was at the right place at the right time to congratulate Siraj on his first wicket of the fourth Test and did so by running up to him as the two teammates raised their arms in the air as a gesture of respect towards the bowler’s father who had died mere weeks before his international Test debut.

  5. In a recent turn of events, Kangana Ranaut took to the social media site, Twitter, to claim that she's always rebelled and her out-spoken tweets are not a recent development. In fact, she has always criticised Bollywood. © Kangana Ranaut/ Twitter To prove the former statement, she even went ahead to share an old video and wrote along with the post that she "became the first rebel Rajput woman at 15". Earlier, she had opened up about how she had previously rebelled against her father, who was stunned to see her reaction and stopped instantly. My father has licensed rifle and guns, growing up he didn’t scold he roared, even my ribs trembled, in his youth he was famous for gang wars in his college which gave him a reputation of a gunda, I fought with him at 15 and left home, became first Baaghi Rajput woman at 15. — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) February 20, 2021 She further wrote on Twitter in another post, "My father has licensed rifle and guns, growing up he didn’t scold, he roared, even my ribs trembled, in his youth, he was famous for gang wars in his college which gave him a reputation of a gunda, I fought with him at 15 and left home, became first Baaghi Rajput woman at 15." This chillar industry thinks success got to my head and they can fix me, I was always Baaghi its only after success my voice got stronger and today I am one of the most prominent voices in the nation. History is a witness whoever tired to fix me I fixed them instead. — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) February 20, 2021 This was a Twitter thread, and in a series of posts, she also added, "This chillar industry thinks success got to my head and they can fix me, I was always Baaghi it's only after success my voice got stronger and today I am one of the most prominent voices in the nation. History is a witness whoever tried to fix me I fixed them instead." My papa he wanted to make me the best doctor in the world, he thought he was being a revolutionary papa by giving me education in best institutions, when I refused to go to school he tried to slap me I held his hand and famously told him “ if you slap me I will slap you back” pic.twitter.com/5nU6x6iQtL — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) February 20, 2021 Kangana spoke about her relationship with her father and how a particular incident made things sour. "My papa he wanted to make me the best doctor in the world, he thought he was being a revolutionary papa by giving me an education in best institutions, when I refused to go to school he tried to slap me I held his hand and famously told him 'if you slap me I will slap you back. "That was it the end of our relationship something changed in his eyes, he looked at me than my mother and left the room, I knew I had crossed the line and never found him back again but one can only imagine the extend I can go to break free, nothing can keep me caged," she added. People commended her for her post. It takes a lot of courage to say the things as they are! You're brave but at the same time, one must understand that there's a difference between being Bold and Aweless! What you did was "बदतमीज़ी" अपने दायरे में रहना, पिंजरे में रहना नही है! — Bharti 🇮🇳 (@SoulfulBharti) February 21, 2021 Kangana posted the clip in the morning, also supplementing it with the caption, "Another clip from 2012, teaching Bullywood cinema n urging them to stop embarrassing India globally, I am only sharing these to bust this propaganda by mafia media that I starting criticising Bullywood after became hugely successful post Queen release in 2014, Fact check- not true." People applauded her courage. Appreciate that u fought back the hammering done to you. What did you do is rare ? India is a country of failures. India is a country of characterless. India is a country of weakness. Hope, you could inspire more and more females of this country. Every right mindset wants them1/2 — Prem Swaroop (@PrmSwrp) February 20, 2021 The said video shows her speaking about her winning the award for her debut film, Gangster, but being jobless right after. She also added, that a superstar told her right after that her career was over. People even suggested her to save this for her memoir so she could add juicy anecdotes. Everyone has their life path and so do you. You are where you are because that’s how you led your life. I would suggest keep such things for your memoir/autobiography. — Pradnya (@pradnya_real) February 20, 2021 Some even asked her to acknowledge the fact that she's gotten this fire within her from her father. Thanks to your father who gave you birth and made you so strong that you can fight with him back.. Thanks to him who gave you power to be a revolutionary... After all blood that run around in your viens is of your father only.... — Harjot Kaur (@HarjotK95796419) February 20, 2021 View the full article
  6. The kind of liberties most filmmakers take with computers and tech geeks, is sometimes crazy and obscene. © Endgame Entertainment Whether you speak of Indian films or those made in Hollywood, most filmmakers often take unnecessary liberties while telling a story, and that’s fine. What becomes blood-curdling, is the extent to which they push the envelope, and often take things for granted. © Prime Video From insanely crazy hacking sequences to using buzzwords that have no meaning at all, here are 7 things that most filmmakers often get wrong about hacking: 1. Smashing The Keyboard Equals Better Hacking © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures How do you tell your audience that a character is a great hacker, should be employed by Google, and Apple and the likes? Show him typing away capriciously fast on a keyboard, almost smashing it to bits in the process. In real life, one’s typing speed has got nothing to do with hacking, it's all about breaking down data and finding vulnerabilities in systems. 2. More Applications Windows Open Mean Better Hacking © 20th Century Fox Hollywood films, in particular, make this mistake more often than others. If you’re a ‘hacker’ you have to show that they are working on multiple windows. Heck, it is even more impressive if they have more than one screen to work on. Now, software developers do use multiple screens to work efficiently, but they don’t work on a gazillion applications simultaneously. 3. Hacking Looks Like Video Games © Sony Pictures Releasing Consider this scene from Skyfall. It seems that the filmmakers here believe that hacking into a network, is like playing a video game. Ever seen a Linux terminal or windows terminal? Well, that’s how trying to hack actually looks like. 4. Hackers Are Often A One Man Army © Universal Pictures Hackers are also often shown to be this nocturnal creature, a lone wolf of sorts who prefers to stay isolated. Ever heard of Anonymous? Well, they’re a group of hackers, who often work on projects in teams. And also, why is it that in most Hollywood movies, hackers are usually men? 5. "Slowing” Hackers Down © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures One more treacherous trickery that some filmmakers often resort to is showing experts trying to “slow” hackers down. Just consider this - given how often we hear of hackers stealing private information from some of the topmost financial institutions and banks, on a regular basis, if this were to be true, wouldn’t these organisations actively try to set up systems and processes that could actually slow down an attack? 6. Fancy Graphics & Sounds As we said before, hackers usually attack the code, using terminals. Terminals look just like CMD windows, they do not have any fancy graphics. All you get while working on a terminal is a black screen with basic text, either in white or green, depending on what sort of a terminal you’re using. One of the worst culprits for this is Michael Bay’s 2007 film Transformers where the FBI apparent used sound signals to detect a hack. 7. Hacking By Pointing A Camera © Marvel Cinemas This one’s actually our favourite. Some filmmakers have also shown that hackers can point their “specially” modified camera phones at certain devices, like CCTV cameras, servers and other systems, and “hack into them.” The best example of such an instance is when Tony Stark hacked into the AV system at a hearing in Iron Man 2. Although that was a joy to watch, such technology just doesn’t exist. That doesn’t mean that filmmakers haven’t used this trope anywhere else. What do you think of the manner in which hackers are portrayed in movies? Are there any other bizarre ways things that filmmakers have portrayed hackers to be? Let us know in the comments below.

  10. Beards can make or break the look. But, if you have been thinking of taking out your grooming kit to shave or chop it off, think again. There's more to growing a beard than just aesthetic reasons as it has undeniable advantages that most people don’t know or talk about. Here are some reasons why growing a beard has a lot of advantages: 1. Blocks UV Rays © Instagram/Virat Kohli Just like the hair on your head protects you from sunburn, your beard protects your skin from the harsh UV rays as well. The lower part of the face is protected from the damaging rays, protecting your skin from early ageing woes. As per a study, at least 95% of UV exposure is blocked. Not just in summers, but the beard can keep your skin warm in the cold weather as well. 2. Beards Fight For You © Instagram/Suniel Shetty If there's one barrier that can prevent your skin from harmful dirt, dust or allergies, it's a beard. The beard has a whole new level of filtering protection and the small allergens stay away from your mouth as well as your skin. When you combine your moustache with your beard, it is two-fold protection and to maintain the same, nourish your beard with beard oil. 3. Beards Can Keep Your Skin Moist © Instagram/Jamie Dornan Shaving leads to opening your pores in the skin and can cause cuts that can lead to dryness. In summers and winters, the pores can make your skin lose the moisture. For that to end, grow a beard to avoid all these issues and ensure a healthy-looking skin! 4. Growing A Beard Will Let You Save Time © Instagram/Shahid Kapoor The average man spends approximately about 4.5 months in shaving. Imagine all the time you would save and invest it somewhere else. Try it out! 5. Beards Prevent Acne © Instagram/Jason Mamoa If your skin is prone to acne or other skin disorders, put the razor down and grow a beard. Shaving leads to irritation and ultimately, rashes. But growing that luxurious beard will totally save you from the acne trouble. View the full article
  11. Filmmakers often take liberties with reality to dramatise a sequence and make it more fun to watch. Nowhere is this more evident than in gunfights and how guns are usually handled in films. © Lionsgate No matter which film industry you pick, they have some or the other insane sequences around guns. Even the John Wick series, which many film and firearm experts consider to be the most accurate in the depiction of guns, gets things wrong at times. And then there is Bollywood and other Indian film industries, who mangle the laws of physics and of reasoning, beyond recognition. © Eros International Here are just a few of the many myths that have come to surround guns and gunfights, thanks to the things that movies get wrong about them: 1. Unlimited Ammo © Paramount Pictures Most movies will have you believe that ammunition and magazines don’t take up space, and are as light as feathers. Therefore, the people in the gunfight, never run out of ammo and have a virtually unlimited supply. Many heist scenes often show robbers moving in a very agile manner while carrying massive amounts of bullets and grenades - the same goes for soldiers. In reality, ammunition makes up the bulk of the weight that soldiers actually carry. 2. Gunmen “Spraying” Their Bullets © 20th Century Fox We have often seen heroes and goons continuously firing their weapon without regard, and without a break when they face an army of their enemies. This is so not true. Guns heat up rather quickly and can malfunction if they shoot bullets continuously for over a minute or two. Also, nobody can realistically carry a thousand bullets that would allow them to do so. That is the reason why no soldier will ever spray bullets using their gun, but rather make each shot count. 3. Silencers Completely Silence Gunshots © Sony Pictures Releasing If movies are to be believed, silencers completely muffle the sound of a gun and make it completely silent. The biggest culprit of this is the James Bond franchise. Silencers actually don’t exist in real life. They are actually called suppressors, and they just suppress the loud bang of a gunshot. Even when using a suppressor, the shot is actually quite loud. 4. The Concept Of Recoil Doesn’t Exist © Miramax No matter how light a gun you fire, you will experience a recoil, i.e. a force opposite to the direction of the shot the larger the gun, the more substantial and violent the recoil. Filmmakers, however, will have you believe that most guns don’t have recoil. Remember Newton’s laws of physics? One of it stated that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Guess most of our filmmakers missed school when that was being taught. 5. Sniping Is Easy. Like, Really Easy. © Paramount Pictures Before getting into this in some depth, we recommend you watch this gem of a clip. Yup, that’s an assassin who makes a clean shot from a distance of 10 kilometres. The world record for a trained marksman to take a clean shot is 3.5 kilometres, that too under near perfect conditions in a barren desert. Also, another thing that movies often get wrong about snipers, is that they function alone. Snipers always work in pairs, with a spotter, who spots and calculates the distance, wind speed, takes into account the rotation of the earth, and the flight time of the bullet, and a hundred different things. 6. Security Check Points Are A Joke For A Trained Assassin © 20th Century Fox Remember the Hitman or Agent 47 franchise? Movies such as those make security checkpoints look like they were being guarded by people with double-digit IQs. It’s impossible to sneak a lighter past them in real life, but expert assassins can carry guns, bullets, knives and whatnot past them, with ease. Yeah, right. 7. Bulletproof Vests Stop All Bullets © Sony Pictures Releasing Another myth that movies have perpetuated is that bulletproof vests can block all bullets. That is hardly the case. A regular kevlar vest can stop just one regular 50 calibre bullet before it is rendered useless. Bulletproof vests can only take a limited number of shots before they become useless. But filmmakers will have you believe that such vests can take unlimited damage, and can stop any bullet. 8. People Can Just Shrug Off Gunshot Wounds © 20th Century Fox This is our biggest pet peeve with guns and gunfights in films. Apparently, it is very easy to shrug off a gunshot wound to the shoulder and walk it off. When you’re shot, you lose a lot of blood, you go into shock, the flesh around the wound is singed and the muscles continue burning, and there is a possibility of broken bones. We’re not even going to get into what happens if the bullet damages some vital organs. View the full article
  12. Filmmakers are known to take liberties with certain aspects of the film. Take films like the Fast & Furious franchise, or Need For Speed or, for that matter any of the James Bond films. Sure, they are very entertaining, but, are they accurate? Heck no. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures In order to dramatise certain scenes and spice the film up, logic, reality, and technicalities are often thrown out of the window. © Universal Pictures Here are six things that movies exaggerate or get wrong about cars and driving that drive us mad. Mind you, we haven’t considered Bollywood films at all, because well, they haven’t really made a decent film on cars. Unlimited Number Of Upshifts © Reddit Not just gear changes, upshifts. The F&F franchise is particularly guilty of this. Want to flare up a racing scene or a chase sequence? Show the character as shifting the car’s gear upwards, constantly, even when they are going through a slow corner. Most of the cars that they show in these sequences have only 5-6 gears. Some of the old classic American Muscle cars, that Vin Diesel drives, has only 4. Drifting A Car Is Super Easy © Universal Pictures Movies often make it seem like drifting a car is piece of cake and any monkey with half a brain can make a car, go sideways, in a beautifully orchestrated manner. We know that while this may make films entertaining, and palatable for a lot of people, it makes petrolheads blow their fuse. Drifting is extremely hard, especially in Front Wheel Drive cars, which is what we have most of, in India. Films would have you believe that anybody can be Ken Block. If only that were true. via GIPHY The only film that barely scratched the surface on how difficult drifting is, was Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift. Unnecessarily Playing With The Steering © Universal Pictures Oh, this is something that really grinds our gears. Even if the car is going in a straight line, and the road on which the car is going is dead straight, actors will always be seen playing with the steering wheel, as if they were going forward in a zig-zag line. In reality, you will make yourself and your passengers pukish if you were to drive like that. Also, if you were at high speeds, the car would just dart off the road. Cars Making Insane Jumps © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures This is something that filmmakers have often taken unnecessary & illogical liberty with. No matter how strong you’ve made your car, what grade tyres you’re using, or how strong your suspension is, you cannot make 20-25 foot jump, without damaging your car. This is what tends to happen when you make a jump in a car- You Can Hit The NOS Switch In The Middle Of A Race © Universal Pictures There is no NOS button in proper racing cars. In fact, the way NOS or nitrous oxide in cars is shown in the film is completely wrong. Drivers cannot hit a NOS switch while driving a car at high speeds, which will then give them a sudden boost. Doing something like that will not only blow your engine up, it can be especially fatal to the driver. You need to stop the car, switch the engine off, and then engage NOS. Just consider this - if nos were practical and as easy to use as films suggest, why don’t any of the official, organised race events, like Formula 1, Nascar, or Le Mans, allow it?
