A simple explanation for why adding lasers makes anything cooler.

Lasers have negative temperature.

I have the perfect quote for the page, but do I have to ask permission from anyone to put it up here?

Normally, no, but this page has a special hidden note saying that there shouldn't be any quote. Feel free to add it to the quotes page instead.

I saw that James Bond film recently; Skyfall. I think that it used the Rule of Cool trope quite a bit. There was that scene when they were at the bar in Shanghai, and 007 fell into that place where a Komodo dragon was kept. I went on the internet to see if there were bars or restaurants like that in Real Life. I couldn't find any, so I'll assume that they don't exist. But I'm not going to criticize Skyfall for unrealistically having a bar that keeps Komodo dragons. I would rather criticize real life for not having them, because they're awesome.

I think it should be noted that this trope can be used poorly. For example, when a work wants to take itself seriously, then the Rule of Cool will make it look like some rediculous story written by a particularily immature twelve-year-old.

Axe Cop should be added to the Rule of Cool Webcomics section.

Anyone think that this should be the new picture instead:

-**albums**/vv234/The_Void_68/batman.jpg- (Just take out the asterisks and the hyphons, the site won't let me post a direct link to my own photobucket account)

I mean nothing is cooler than the above.

No, THIS is the most awesome thing ever, and it's the alternate cover of the same book that the current image is of!
