This Crazy Thing Happened To Me
Some of the films on this list are fantasy films, but in all of them, there is a small part that is quite rare, but might occur in real life, for example, Inception: Personal experience of a dream within a dream. From this list, which rare thing happened to YOU in real life? If there is more than one, select the option that you believe is the MOST unbelievable and rare. I avoided from inserting to the list cases of physical violence or sexual violence. We would appreciate if you share your story here. Special thanks to jamesh5 & Ferry_Silitonga who helped me with the sugestion and too all the good people who helped me with this poll.

Road Trip! 1980+ Edition
You get to tag along a road trip with one of the following groups - which one do you choose? Not (necessarily) the best or your favorite movie - it's the group you'd most like to hang out a few days on their road trip. Inspired by http://www.imdb.com/list/-sZYHX7NdC8/ You get to (roughly) experience what they experienced in the movie (for better or worse). To keep it to a reasonable number of items, I am applying the following constraints: * There are at least two "central" characters but no more than three people already on the road trip, you are the 3rd (or 4th, * The movie is about an era that is 1980s or more recent. * The main characters spend a fair amount of time in a vehicle. * Are live action and not science fiction/fantasy (not animated or puppets) Because the list is limited to 35 items, there are valid entries that would probably not be plausible choices for anyone (e.g. they're basically awful or horrific experiences), so I've roughly chosen the more popular entries by moviemeter.

The Silver State Movies
The Silver State is the official nickname of Nevada. The nickname dates back to the Nevada silver-rush days of the mid 1800's. At that time silver was literally shoveled off the ground in Nevada; heavy gray crusts of silver had formed on the surface of the desert over millions of years and were polished by dust and wind to the dull luster of a cow horn (called "horn silver"). A big silver bed could be tens of meters wide and more than a kilometer long (worth $27,000 a ton in 1860's dollars). The territory of Nevada and surrounding states were picked clean of silver within a few decades (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Nevada became the 36th state of the United States of America in 1864. These movies have a connection with Nevada. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Nevada?

Bluegrass is actually green, but in the spring bluegrass produces bluish-purple buds that give a rich blue cast to the grass when seen in large fields (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Kentucky became the 15th state of the United States of America in 1792. These movies have a connection with Kentucky. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story.
