New today Question: What does Olaf mean by asking, "Who's the funky-looking donkey?" Was he referring to Krisftoff? Olaf initially mistakes Krisftoff to have the same name as Sven and does not learn his real name until he meets the trolls. Why doesn't Krisftoff or Anna correct him about Kristoff's name?

New today Question: Loki (as Odin) quotes a conversation that occurred between Thor and Odin. This conversation happened after Loki let go of the handle Thor offered to keep him from falling off the bi-frost. How does Loki know what Odin tells Thor when he's supposedly headed to Midgard (Earth) as they speak? Can Loki read minds? If so, I don't recall any movies he comes out in mentioning mind reading.

New this week Question: Do the laces being in really make that much of a difference, or is it just Finkle projecting blame?

Question: Do magical folk generally live longer than Muggles? Considering that Minerva is described as having black hair, even though she is old enough to have taught Harry's parents, and Dumbledore is more than one hundred years old (according to the Harry Potter Wiki).

New this week Answer: Yes they do, though Dumbledore is considered quite old even by magical standards. Members of the magical community reach their middle age in their 80's or so, but also maintain their virility much later into their lifespan, relatively speaking, than muggles do.

New this week Question: Can anyone identify the designer/label for the navy blue lace dress Montana Moore (Paula Patton) wears?

New this week Question: In the scene where Cheyenne visits Jill at the McBain's residence for the first time, he asks her whether she knows something about a man with a harmonica, although the three of them (Cheyenne, Harmonica and Jill) met earlier in the movie when Cheyenne tells Harmonica to "watch those false notes." Why doesn't Cheyenne just ask her for the man whom she probably still remembers from this event?

Nessuno (Nobody) - S1-E9

Question: Why does Giovanni Sforza not prove he is not impotent? Was he in fact not able to perform in front of others or find the woman undesirable? I know historically he agreed to the annulment; but why? Was this scene historically accurate?

New this week Answer: The Borgias arranged Lucrezia's marriage to Giovanni Sforza for their own political gain. When Giovanni was no longer considered useful to them politically, they sought to end the marriage. Eventually, Giovanni reluctantly agreed to admit to impotence in exchange for keeping Lucrezia's dowry, which normally would have reverted back to the family in the event of an annulment. Divorce was rare at that time, and being unable to consummate a marriage was one grounds for an annulment. In the series, when the Borgias convene the College of Cardinals to have Giovanni prove his potency by performing with two overweight and unattractive prostitutes, he refuses because he is humiliated. The historical facts are mostly accurate, though the part about the prostitutes is probably fiction.

Question: What is the trailer both were watching on TV while they were having some snacks in bed in the Aspen hotel room?

Question: Why is Vesper upset when she learns Bond used her name as the password?

New this week Answer: It revealed that Bond was likely falling in love with her, so either they were "tears of joy" and she was emotional at this revelation, or she was actually quite upset as she had feelings for him too and was about to betray him by stealing the money for Quantum.

Question: If all the stars have gone out, then how come it is light out when Amelia and her Auntie Sharon are going to the museum? If all the stars had gone out, it would have been dark, since the Sun is a star.

Question: At the end of supremacy, Landy tells Bourne his name is David Webb and birthday is 4/15/71. In the Ultimatum, that same date is used as a code. Was this a mistake or am I missing something?

New this month Answer: Landy gives Bourne a false birth date as a code to lead him to the Treadstone facility at 415 East 71st Street - Vosen's team realised what was happening when one of them noticed Bourne/Webb's birthday was actually 9/13/70 on his file.

Question: Can someone please tell me how the men who have chains on their legs remove their trousers for washing, them and their trousers?
