comment What breaks suspension of disbelief?
Just wanted to tack on that 'external consistency', as explained above, is not limited to specialized knowledge; generally, people expect the fictitious world to behave like the real world except insofar as the rules are explicitly being broken. For example, Superman flying around and lifting massive weights doesn't break suspension of disbelief; Superman lifting an entire building by a corner without the building falling apart does break suspension of disbelief.
