*** For one thing, piping pure O2 to the passengers wouldn't calm them, it'd amp them up. If you wanted to calm them down, you'd be better off letting them go into hypoxia. One of the symptoms of oxygen deprivation is lethargy, as oxygen is necessary for most of the body's functions. Rule of thumb for aviators: If everything seems just fine and nothing is worrying you at all, check your oxygen.

** It's reverse psychology. Tell them not to talk about it so that it's the ''only thing'' they'll talk about.

* At the very beginning of the movie, the Narrator voiceovers about how the building he and Tyler in is about to collapse. But in the end ... it doesn't. What gives?

*** I'd say that was a pretty irresponsible doctor. Even if you think a patient's being a hypochondriac, you still have a professional responsibility to treat them thoughtfully and sensitively. The doctor acted exasperated, shot off a cookie-cutter solution apparently without examining potential causes, and basically just tried to tell the Narrator his subjective problems weren't real. Now, this may well be part of the point, but a good doctor would probably have found out enough about the Narrator to advise he seek mental health care, barring dishonest answers about life stressors and emotional wellbeing.

** And if you think the Mob would beat the remnants of the government in a post apocalypse, I'd have to disagree. Even if government and infrastructure falls, leaving no one controlling them and communication between districts difficult, your average police department or local army base had just as many if not more men than any organized crime in the same area. They also have bigger guns, plus actual training in the use of their resources, and experience in keeping people in line. Yes, they have moral limitations, but that would probably just make people more eager to follow and join them, and prevent infighting.

** It could be that the first people to join assumed the narrator was only fighting himself because he wanted the experience of fighting, but had no partner. Once they joined, there was nothing odd to explain.

*** However many back ups there are, having the headquarters of multiple financial companies get demolished would be a huge blow to the stock market and financial confidence. These are also just the buildings in Delaware. Who knows what's going on in New York or Chicago. Operations would have to halt while the companies reorganize themselves and in that time, millions of people would be unable to make transactions of any kind, which would snowball into a financial crisis rivaling the Great Depression. Project Mayhem isn't the blow that topples civilization; it rocks the foundation enough to get it crumble on its own.

**** Chuck Palahniuk disagrees. He likes the movie's ending far better than the one he came up with. His words were "I wish I had thought of it".
