    A lot of problems would be avoided if Loopers killed each others' older versions of themselves.

              It is almost impossible to dispose of a body in the future... unless it's the body of a Chinese woman who was accidentally shot in the stomach.

                        Complicated torture scenarios are always preferable to just killing a younger Looper.

                                The real reason a blunderbuss is such a short range weapon is because the writers didn't want anyone to ask, "Why didn't he just shoot the older Joe at the end?" That's a plot hole filler.

                                  The young Joe finally realizes that he has no choice but to shoot himself in the chest and die... why couldn't he have just as easily shot off his hand and made the commitment never to replace it with a Luke Skywalker mit in the future?

                                    No one will pay attention when a gunshot goes off in a neighbor's house and a stranger walks out soon afterward.

                                        Does anyone actually eat their dinner in films? It comes as no surprise that the younger Joe fainted when he came to Sara's farm having had no energy left.

                                              It's very hard to kill people in the distant future but not so much in the near future.

                                                When young Joe is getting up from shooting the "gatman" off his bike you can clearly see the "gatman's" undamaged gat in frame on the road next to Joe. Young Joe knows that old Joe had a big head start and intends to kill the Rainmaker but doesn't exchange his blunderbuss for the much longer range gat.

                                                    You can have a relationship with a stripper/dancer despite being paid to cater to other customers.

                                                      I mean the dancer - he doesn't cater to other men, she does. I can't believe I unintentionally made that sound wrong.
