Could it be that this page is itself is an example of Fridge Logic. Because the key point of interest with a fridge is whether the fridge light stays on when the door is closed; the trope is described as realising a plot hole after the event. And actually the two concepts are distinctly different, but somehow you convince yourself they are the same.

I suppose that would require people to often think about this afterwards, which is going to be subjective as noted.

Rather, shouldn't this be; not about when you realise something, which is subjective: But the tactile covering or ignoring of plot holes in the making. More like a refuge in audacity.

How come the "Please don't list this as a trope." is hardcoded into the Wiki? Shouldn't the Fridge tropes have its own predefined message?

I don't like Fridge Logic. the reason why is what occurs to some people as fridge logic, others pick up on right away, and of course others don't pick up on it at all.

I know they aren't allowed on main workpages but what's our stance towards Fridge Logic entries on Character Sheets? I'm not sure if I'm supposed to remove them or not.

Remove them. The only place Fridge Logic goes is on Headscratchers.

Can there be an in-universe example of Fridge Logic or the other Fridges?

Of course, if a character suddenly realises what was wrong with that picture that was shot of him and the easter bunny when he was 4...

There is a questionable assertion in the passage about Harlan Ellison's "Repent, Harlequin", specificially, where it says:

"It's only after the story has been read that the average reader thinks 'Where the heck did he get the jellybeans?'"

In fact, the narrator of the story asks this very question in the story itself. To paraphrase, it goes something like "Wait a second—a second accounted for—where did he even _get_ the jellybeans? No one has even _made_ jellybeans for over a hundred years!" So it would seem to be impossible for this question _not_ to occur to the reader.

Would a kind-hearted person explain to me how this is different from Non Sequitur, for it's a, well, Fridge Logic to me how TV Tropes can have two pages on same phenomenon?

How is this related to Non Sequitur?

Someone with an account that works add this: In an ad for Telus, it celebrates the fact that you can record three shows at once. So, it says you can record a triathalon, three-ring circs and trilogy on neopolitan ice cream all at once. A trilogy has three parts.

No, because if you read the page you'll see it doesn't have any examples.

And while a trilogy has three parts, they're not all on at the same time. They'd be on one after another, so you could record them all in addition to the other two programs.

As this Trope seems to be served by the "Just Bugs Me" pages, why do some articles have "Fridge Logic" entries while others have JBM? There seems to be no need for one if the other is available.

Hi, dropping in from other parts of the wiki. I was wondering if the admonition not to post Fridge Logic in main articles could be given more prominence and some stronger language?

This page doesn't have any examples?

Check the archived discussion as to why.

Should we just go and merge Headscratchers with Fridge Logic?
