Let me start off by requesting none of my readers to term me or my friends as 'nerds'. Usually this school group catches up to watch a movie and we discuss in detail which subject that we learnt in elementary School was most used. Usually it's me or my physicist friend who wins as most movies makes use of Mathematical calculations or physics realities.

 

The latest on this list was inception where my Chemistry major spoke of the importance of the serum used in the movie, my Physics friend was rather quiet as the movie made use of lots of alternate physical laws but at the end as usual it was I who prevailed and the winner as I showed them the final 'kick' used in the movie was by timing which came as a result of basic Mathematical calculation.

 

Having to design a general scenario for that matter without some involvement from the world of Mathematics is near impossible..go on try it.
