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?

  • I must have an extremely high dopamine level because I can start laughing from the easiest jokes that even kids I don't find funny.

  • Actually I feel as though if the monsters regularly show up in adult's bedrooms they'd get exposed eventually. Preying on kids is easier because of how naturally paranoid they are and it'd just be shrugged off. Also, because they can fight back can also be another factor.

    Slimey BoiSlimey Boi3 ימים לפני
  • And this theory would make sense if the portals they use to get into the kids bedrooms didn't need more energy than the one they produce with either laughter or screams...

  • The monsters don’t repeatedly keep scaring the same kid over and over again! It’s common sense to know that the more someone gets introduced to something, it will be more expected and predictable. Why wouldn’t millions of monsters from each electric company not know a simple function of the brain? Monsters should also be exploring new ways to get energy from humans also! Maybe just maybe they can a better source that doesn’t involve making portals into peoples homes and scaring the living day lights out of them!! Laughing is just like scaring since people can’t be introduced with the same gag over and over again!! It won’t be funny any more!!! The reason why the laughing was so much a big hit is because monsters can stay with the same kid and give different joke each night! The kid will laugh as long as you don’t do the same gag!! That’s my conclusion!

  • I'm a little dissapointed in MatPat's mess up on the decibel thing... the difference between them is logarithmic, meaning for each +10 in decibels, it is 10 times more powerful, so for a difference of 25, its about 400x more energy. Not sure where he got the 56x number from....

  • 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

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.
