Question: Wouldn't the gyrospheres get stuck all the time, especially on wet patches of grass? I can't imagine the glass surface would get enough grip.

Chosen answer: Apparently they are heavy enough to have traction in several types of terrain. Presumably if the weather was bad enough they would shut down the ride but for the purposes of the film, they seem to work just fine.

Question: What happened to Psylocke after the movie? Would you say this indicates an appearance in another upcoming X-Men film?

Chosen answer: Psylocke is purposefully shown literally just walking away after the dust has settled. She could very well show up in another film somewhere along the line but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Question: When the Red Triangle Circus approaches the Batmobile to attach the transmitter, we see one clown with the schematics of the Batmobile. How the hell did they get hold of such plans? I highly doubt Batman/Bruce Wayne would let such information get out.

Russel Denton

Chosen answer: In the novelization of the film, it is implied that Max Shreck used his money to bribe the original designer/fabricator (or one of their disgruntled employees) to give him the plans.

Question: I am wondering what the deal is with Ahsoka Tano's chains in her hair. In season 1 episode 7 I think of the clone wars, Ahsoka gets her chain taken off and when she defeats the bad guy she takes it back and says "I think I have earned the right to wear this again" or something to that effect. I have tried Googling this many different ways and I can't find the answer.

Chosen answer: They are called silka beads. Jedi Padawans from species with no hair (such as Togruta and Twi'leks) wear them in place of the Padawan braid.

Question: At the end of the movie, it's discovered that "Aaron" was actually faking a split personality. What would have been the legal ramifications if Martin were to tell his superiors the truth?

Chosen answer: Nothing if he is telling superiors within the law practice he is associated with. Outside it, he would be legally bound by attorney/client privilege. He could be disbarred if he ever shared that information.

Question: When Bond finds out Dimitri is going to the airport to fly to Miami, we see Bond leaving Dimitri's "wife" and heading off to the airport, with the intention of following Dimitri. The question is: Bond is seen in the Alpha Romero he won from Dimitri in a poker match, but then we see Bond in the back seat of a taxi. So why two vehicles? Dimitri is seen in a taxi himself.

Kathy Higgs 2b4e

Chosen answer: The first shot is Bond driving the Aston Martin DB5 (not an Alpha Romeo) to the airport in the Bahamas. The second shot in the taxi is in Miami.

Question: What is the name of the song Samara sings? Is there really a musical carousel figurine like the one in the barn that plays it?

Chosen answer: The song was written by Hans Zimmer for the movie.

Question: What is written on the rear window in a foreign language?

Chosen answer: You do not specify to which scene you are referring. The only window I recall with writing on it would be the window in Nash's room. John had covered this window in mathematical equations, theorems and geometric patterns. While most of the symbols used are Greek in origin, the language is simply that of mathematics.

Question: At the very beginning, why did the Germanic army just show up and do nothing, giving them time to prepare the catapults, archers and what not. Why didn't they just rush in as soon as possible?

Chosen answer: Ancient armies would often line up for battle, exchange insults, taunts, and threats at each other, and either charge into battle or call it quits for the day, both sides retiring for the night. In "Gladiator", the Germans began forming up for battle after they sent back the headless body of the Roman emissary on his horse, while yelling defiant threats and insults at the Romans. So, the Germans weren't ready to attack until all their troops were ready for battle.

Question: Why did Storm turn on Apocalypse?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She only followed him because he claimed to care for mutants. When Angel dies, Storm hears Apocalypse's remark and is insulted. It is then clear to her that Apocalypse doesn't really care about mutants and he is simply using them for their power.

Question: Why did the Black Pearl's crew just give up when the curse was lifted? I get that it may have been a shock, but they had to know that getting convicted of piracy lead to hanging (so they'd die anyway). Not one of them realised this and tried to have a fighting chance?

Chosen answer: There is one major gap in your question: not every pirate was hanged. Being a sailor in the 17th century was very dangerous, and there generally was a shortage of experienced sailors. What usually happened was that the captain was hanged to make an example, while the crew was forced to serve on trade ships, for example, the ones sailed by the WIC. The crew, even when giving up, had pretty good chances of survival.

Question: What did Ron mean when he said that Hermione needs to sort out her priorities?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: This is a joke in that Hermione thinks it's worse to be expelled from Hogwarts than it is to die.

Question: Near the end of the song "I am a dentist", is Orin saying "and a success" or "and I say sit"?

Chosen answer: He says "and a success". He's singing about his mother telling him he'd become a successful dentist.

Question: Can someone explain to me the friendship between Penny and Amy? I don't quite understand it.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Penny and Amy became friends simply because their significant others (Leonard and Sheldon, respectively) happened to be friends as well as roommates. While it may have been simply a matter of convenience at first, Penny and Amy genuinely grew to enjoy each other's company as time progressed despite their obvious differences.

Question: When Kylo Ren told Rey that they had the rest of the map that leads to Luke, why didn't she try and get it back when she was escaping, since nobody knew that R2 had the rest of the map?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: It is merely stated the First Order has the other part of the map, not necessarily that it is kept on Starkiller base. Regardless, Rey would have no way of knowing where the data is kept and even if she did it would be pointless since there is no way to know how many people have seen/copied the data.

Question: In the movie, it's said that Carmen Sanchez died (obviously). They never really say how she died or when she died, nor do they explain why she has three white streaks in her hair (while her husband still has full black hair). How did Carmen Sanchez die?

Chosen answer: According to Jorge Gutierrez, in a tweet, he said she died saving Carlos and baby Manolo during the Mexican Revolution. The white streaks in her hair look like an homage to "Bride of Frankenstein" with her white streaked hair.

Question: Why couldn't Professor X use his powers until Magneto smashed the glass?

raph

Chosen answer: Because the glass was made with the same or similar material as the helmet, blocking Xavier's powers.

Question: Why does Hero Boy imagine Lonely Boy?

Chosen answer: Hero Boy isn't imagining Lonely Boy. He is a real character that interacts with Hero Boy, Hero Girl, the Conductor and the elves at the North Pole.

Court Martial - S1-E20

Question: In this episode, the computer says that Spock's rank is Lieutenant Commander. If he is First Officer of the ship, wouldn't he be a full Commander?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: Rank and position aren't directly correlated. An officer may be promoted to a higher rank, but maintain his/her current position. And an officer may be assigned new duties without a promotion. Spock is eventually promoted to full commander, but it isn't a requirement for the job.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Has it been explained how they put the live animals into the ground of the T-rex enclosure? Surely there must be a tunnel to it from the outside of the enclosure.

Chosen answer: The assumption is, as you said, an underground tunnel with a simple lift to raise the animal up.
