You know the moment. You’re mindlessly enjoying a romantic moment in a movie when suddenly there’s this buzzing in the back of your head. Something is very wrong here. Why are they kissing?

How times have changed. I remember when I was a kid: School for five long days every week, waking up at 7 a.m. for what now seems like a totally irrelevant purpose.
