By now, most of us know the end of Monsters Inc. The Monsters discover that the screams they've been using as a power source are not the most optimized way to do business. Which, you know, is good to find out given the terror they've been puting generations of kids through. Thanks to the adventures of Sully, Mike and Boo, they find out laughter works even BETTER than the sreams. What I want to know, Theorists, is WHY that is and, more importantly, did the Monsters actually make a big MISTAKE?

    The biggest error in this theory is the "screams have decreased effectiveness". Unless they've only been in business for literally 16-ish years or less, there would of been more and more kids to scare who aren't resistant. It made it seem like they only have same group of kids since it's started.

    I haven't finished the video yet however, MatPat says that screams are louder then laughter, however, wouldn't it be harder to keep someone screaming than putting someone into a fit of laughter. Like it would take longer but, one scream for a minute and a half or a prolonged period of laughter the monsters could fill at least twice the canisters with laughs if they are funny enough

    3:50 I appreciate the visual but sound waves are longitudinal waves, and the particles travel parallel to the direction of movement, not perpendicular. My guess is that this was known but chosen to be ignored for simplicity and ease. Just don't want people to get the wrong idea.

    I think one of the reasons they didn't use parents for screen Powers because if they kept doing it then people would start to believe monsters exist cuz eventually enough parents would have said it and people are more likely to believe parents than kids. So it's not good for the long-term run

    Mat, this was just plain lazy. You're completely ignoraning the scene where Boo laughs inside of the appartment and creates so much electricity that she breaks their light bulb a d causes a blackout. Keep in mind that there were no yellow tanks around for holding screams. It's can also be compared to the low voltage she generated when crying. You're making it obvious that you didn't even watch the movie. Similar to how you've probably never played Minecraft.

    the monsters scare kids because the kids will either forget the monsters or brush it off as imagination when hey get older. and no one would give much thought to a kid. but a adult can do so much more to expose their world. so its better to have less power than no world at all, or an exoposed destroyed world. its not dumb, its smart
