Do these landmarks have architectural leprosy? There are no evident weapons being fired, and the ships haven't completed their douchey parking jobs yet. But never mind that -- let's take a closer look at the destruction being lazily wrought:

"Oh thank God. My shoulder was killing me."
We've recently covered the fact that the Statue of Liberty is a lot flimsier than people imagine, but we didn't mean, like, papier mache flimsy. It does not shatter like a pint glass that's been knocked off a bar table during a passionate argument about, say, movie posters. It collapses, warps, or makes a single clean break. Physics 101 is being ignored in the City of Lights, too:
20th Century Fox
By the way, if the ship is flying low enough to do this, the whole city just died.
The Eiffel Tower is made of some mysterious substance called "iron," which doesn't shatter like a nacho. So either whoever designed these posters was raised in a windowless basement and got the job as part of an effort to integrate them into wider society, or they lazily cut and pasted a chunk out of the building to imply horrifying(ly illogical) destruction. Although it would be a solid sequel hook if the aliens have returned to Earth with weapons that shatter reality as we know it.

Zoroastrianism used to be one of the biggest religions in the world, but their idea of heaven had a slight twist on it: To get there you'd have to cross a bridge, sometimes rickety, sometimes wide and sturdy. If you fell off, you'd go to the House of Lies for eternity. Fun! Not terrifying at all! This month, Jack, Dan, and Michael, along with comedians Casey Jane Ellison and Ramin Nazer discuss their favorite afterlife scenarios from movies, sci-fi, and lesser-known religions. Get your tickets here, and we'll see you on the other side of the bridge!
