New this week Question: When the Enterprise recovers Chekov and Captain Terrell, they just accept Chekov's and Terrell's false explanation, even though McCoy is standing right there with a medical tricorder. Why didn't McCoy's medical tricorder pick up the Ceti eels lodged in the brains of Chekov and Captain Terrell?

Charles Austin Miller

New this week Question: How does Harry grab/or manipulate anything when using the invisibility cloak in the presence of people without exposing himself from behind the cloak? It's only so big but you never see anything.

New this week Answer: Harry can cast spells with the tip of the wand protruding through the cape's opening. There is also one shot in "Deathly Hallows" where he can be seen casting a spell by slipping his hand out from under the cape.

raywest

New this week Answer: He can use his wand from behind the cloak.

New this week Question: This might possibly a mistake. When the thief was chased by the police, they were right behind him. He entered a building and suddenly they weren't anymore. Only several minutes later they appeared. So my question is. What happened here?

New this week Answer: The police were likely setting up a perimeter and waiting for backup before sending officers in to make sure he didn't escape. Hence, later you see police boats and whatnot.

New this week Answer: Sticky Rice (the thief) lost the pursuing officers when he ran into the warehouse and hid there; he was subsequently tracked down by Spider-Man who captured him for the police.

Question: Why did Argyle want to kill Michael? I can understand wanting to kill those who harmed him but Michael was an innocent boy.

New this week Answer: While Argyle shows a strange affinity for Michael, his primary goal is still revenge on the entire town. Innocent or not, Michael is connected to those who tortured him.

New this month Question: What is in the bottle that Roxie pays for while she's in jail before she does her hair?

New this week Answer: Given that in the next scene, Roxie presents herself with a newly dyed platinum blonde hairstyle, it's a safe bet that the bottle was hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide was the most commonly used hair bleaching agent during the 1920's, when the story of Chicago takes place.

Seasickness: Kill or Cure - S3-E24

New this month Question: It has already been proven that if you put your finger in a gun barrel you will lose your hand. Would you also lose your hand if you put your finger on the barrel of a pistol?

New this week Answer: The barrel can get hot if it is fired quickly. Revolvers allow hot gasses to escape from the front of the cylinder so you should keep your hand way from the gap. But if the barrel is not too hot and you keep your hand away from anything it should not be near, just touching the barrel will not hurt your hand.

New this month Question: When Christine rips off the Phantom's mask in "The Point of No Return" why does his hair become blonde? It was still black when she took his mask off the first time.

New this week Answer: He wears a black wig along with his mask, to cover the missing hair on the side of his head. The first time she only removed the mask, while in the performance she removed both.

New this month Question: Rey is owned by Unkar Plutt before she leaves Jakku with Finn. Does she not have a slave transmitter?

New this week Answer: Nothing in the film indicates she's a slave so much as she's just been left with and works under him. She's more an unwilling laborer than an overt "slave" (so perhaps something like an indentured servant), since it seems she's under the impression she'll be free to leave when her family comes back.

Opposite Universe - S2-E13

Question: Why does Henry freak out when he realises that Opposite Piper and Henry's dad are going to be eliminated? When the opposites are eliminated, does that mean that the real versions will be eliminated too?

New this month Question: In Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, George Kennedy isn't listed with the other main characters. Was that by choice?

New this month Answer: He is given what it known as "last billing" (which you see as "and George Kennedy). Nowadays it can also be referred to as "special billing." This is typically done for more famous actors who are playing a smaller role, or in this case a non-titular character. It was done on purpose and most likely as part of his agent's negotiation with the film studio.

aliadms

New this month Answer: Basically, Rosalie is complaining that Edward having saved Bella by stopping the truck with his hand has risked him exposing their family as vampires. Edward responds saying what else could he have done and should he have just have stood by and let Bella die. Rosalie thinks he should have if it protected the family. Carlisle then says they need to move the conversation to his office when he notices Bella watching them.
