    Bruh, if friendly aliens visited this planet and saw any money being exchanged, they would immediately realize that this was a slave planet under the control of Reptilian aliens. They would get the hell out of here at ludicrous speed (not even bothering with warp speed). Observe the image at 11:15 of this video, for example: The enslaved unicorn with the chain around his neck represents humans and the lion represents Reptilians.

                    How could I ever forget the plot of Mary Poppins?

                      Well in Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel, the tuppence saved the Banks’ house so I think he made the right choice.

                                    Watching this theory has been an interesting mind sponge to enjoy, but I'm happy to say it's reminded me why I loved Mary Poppins and how it shaped me as an adult today. As an adult today, I still don't fully understand banking and such and the various nuances still confound me a bit, but I am at least aware of how savings and investments work to a degree. That being said, the biggest lesson that always stuck to me as a kid in Mary Poppins is that being wealthy is cool cause you get to invest in good things for later on in life to bolster your finances more, but those that are rich financially are poor in experience. This movie pretty much taught me that not all happiness involves ludicrous amounts of money. In most cases, it's better to invest more into current experiences than to save up enough to try and be a millionaire by the time you retire and can't do the things you wanted to before. That's the big thing I took away from the movie and it's been a major influence in many of my decisions in life today. I focus on my own happiness and indulge in enriching my life with experiences that no amount of money down the road can ever buy me. Money's good but the value of memories will never change, no matter how screwy the government gets.

                                                    Hey MatPat. I had a question that I haven’t been able to solve, a lore one. So Mary Poppins requires to have every second Tuesday off. Didn’t think much about it till I saw Topsy not being able to do her thing because she turns upside down. What happens to Mary on that Tuesday?

After 100 years, Australia and New Zealand still have two days in the year where we remember the ANZACS (Australian & New Zealand Army Corps) who fought and fell in battle.

Angela Lansbury surprised me at the end of the film especially since she spoke to Mary Poppins directly. For a moment I was excited because I thought it was an easter egg to Miss Price from Bedknobs and Broomsticks until the credits where only listed as 'Balloon Lady'. I still like to think they could be from the same school/coven that spans the Disney multiverse. It makes sense if you take the time to confirm that the father is the same actor(David Tomlinson) in both movies. It could be an alternate Banks family considering the family in Bedknobs and Broomsticks don't have a last name. Thought I'd give you something new to chew on. Keep theorizing, and thanks for reading!
