      John Wick. Now the basic premise may just be action, but some of the scenes show that there are likely 1000s of highly trained assassins throughout the world. They can travel across borders with ease. They have secret hotels that somehow avoid normal people. The police don't seem to follow up on disturbances at these places. Certain assassins are even able to kill the Pope. How does such a world remain hidden and how tenuous a position of those in power? With this booming industry, it'd be hard to image world leaders don't stay in power without paying for immunity. Even the aspect that people are so dedicated to this secret society that they take day jobs doing mundane tasks to even acting like they're homeless. How would something like this even take hold?

      Yesterday. While it could be a simple examination of a world without the Beatles' music and social impact, there is a very specific event that may matter. Specifically the death of John Lennon. Capman was an unhinged individual who would have likely sought out another "phony". Like another person who targeted Lennon, would he move his target to the 40th President Ronald Reagan? What would happen if he succeeded?

      The Men in Black. From what if aliens are real to what if they fail their mission and an alien video goes live viral. What would it take to maintain this organization? What would literal xenophobia cause? What would finding out we're not the dominant species mean? Would we even try to keep going to space if aliens are real. Or the cover up to hinder our space exploration already in place to stop us from finding alien life.

      @BlackCover95 Given the number of populated planets, it would be like the nuking of a major city. Locally serious but the effect mitigates further out. Economies have a tendency to eventually create work arounds.

      How's the rest of the universe dealing with Thanos and his considerable military might simply turning to dust. Seems like Captain Marvel might really have her hands full with that one. Would other plants send representatives to earth to thank the remaining Avengers for all they had done?

      I think for some people, after the un snap, there would be some feelings of resentment. People who were thriving in the new world would be pissed with the overpopulation all of a sudden. People who grieved loved ones may hold some resentment because of what they went through and having moved on then all of sudden they are back in your new life.

        Imagine if you're super-rich and you got snapped away... Your heir decides to donate all the money you own in order to help the surviving half... Then boom after 5 years you get resurrected and now you're poor 😂

          I always thought "THE BLIP" is way worse than "The SNAP"

          Hence, Avengers are the villains actually 😂

              The random disappearances would likely wipe out a lot of knowledgeable people. There's no way to ensure that competent people aren't vanished to keep things running.

                So does a person who is sentenced to life in prison also become free once they're reverse snapped?

                      There wouldn't be a significant economy to come back too...
                      Loosing half the pop would mean economic collapse..
                      Modern economy relies on people constantly buying junk they don't need, if half disappear there will be so many left over products that stores could only sell a little food.. They would be out of business..
                      Back to farming and barter mostly.

                      The govt still having social security numbers, institutions and database organisation? Nope..

                      Loosing half the pop would be a disaster we could recover from... Getting them back years later would finish us humans off..
                      Loosing half the pop would have many benefits, returning them late would have none.
                      You'd be nuts to want to kill half the pop and even nuttier to bring them back!

                        Don't get to much into details, It just takes the fun of the movie away😑🤦💯. It's better to just Watch the MCU and enjoy and not question “SOME” things along the way...

                            There's also fascinating things to consider from the angles of environmental sicence and biology. You could totally do a sequel to this episode covering those angles.

                              Everybody always forget about the Earth's orbit. If the planet (and even the galaxy) wasn't in the same cosmic position as when the snap happened, unsnapped people should be appearing in the middle of the space vacuum.

                                How about global food production would have fell after the snap, what is the new 3 billion people added back post snap gonna it a lot of people are gonna die again due to to famine.

                                  IRL Sounds like a Good Idea for a SJ Segment, but this was Depressing.
                                  It should be more about how moments of realism enhanced the Movie
                                  and how lack of realism can sometimes eject the viewer from their suspension of disbelief.

                                      Less smart people too. Or maybe the 50% were more smart than not. Then it would seem like more dumbass people.

                                                      Another random thought. Would the snapped people be legally 5 years older than their physical age? So Peter Parker can go out drinking while still in high school.
                                                      Or do they all have their DOB artificially raised by 5 years?

                                                        so basically reversing the snap five years later is to late to safe any one.

                                                          They barely touched the hard problems, and made some unfounded assumptions.

Hell, maybe he’d create even more.

Watching infinity war again theyre in an African forest(or jungle or whatever) and no trees disappear. I hope somebody adds a line to clarify this in a future movie or show. Something about there being more food for the survivors.

But we don't talk about that because...comicbook logic, so let's not worry too much about it lol

The snap forces them into unexistence (listen to what spider man says to Tony Stark).. Only 3 ppl died vision loki & Gamorra

Relevant experts, could have been fun with a historian also, to give perspective to how societies have handled "similar" situations before. For example the plauge which lead to technical innovations and rise in income for the surviving farmers as 1/3 the population died and manpower was needed
