Question: When Beck tries to dodge the huge diamonds, the ship gets a breach. Wouldn't that cause the outside material to spray into the ship's interior, given the intense temperature and pressure?

Chosen answer: The inner-earth ship known as VIRGIL is comprised of multiple double-hull detachable sections. The outer hull can be breached, while the inner hull can maintain structural integrity just long enough to jettison the damaged compartment. When VIRGIL encounters the giant diamond field, the very last section (the weapons control compartment) suffers a hull breach, and it immediately begins automatic detachment. Dr. Serge Leveque, the nuclear weapons expert, sacrifices himself by saving vital weapons deployment information from that compartment just before it detaches and is destroyed.

Question: If the bear died in the fall, assuming the fall did kill it, then how did Tod survive?

Chosen answer: Since we don't really know how he died, he could have drowned and not died on impact. Bear may not have been a strong swimmer or sustained too much injury from the gunshot to swim to the surface. However, in physics, force = mass * acceleration and thus larger creatures will hit the water with greater force than small creatures (as the old cliche goes; the bigger they are, the harder they fall). So it's possible for Bear to die on impact and not Tod because of his larger size.

Question: Does anyone know where I can find the black and white blink-182 poster Dawn has in her bedroom?

Chosen answer: Amazon might have one. Https://

Question: Was the bouncer a werewolf?


Chosen answer: No. He was an ordinary human. This is first shown at Club De La Lune when Claude and his friends turn into werewolves. Many people were running in fear to the doors and when the bouncer is seen outside of the club, he is still in human form.

Question: When Logan gets fired, is it part of the plan or was it really liability issues due to his bad leg?

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: It really was a liability issue, even though as he said it didn't prevent him doing his job. The liability part was that he didn't mention it when he applied for the job.

Question: Even though this game is for the Microsoft's Xbox One, why does it have some Nintendo 64 games in the compilation, even using the Nintendo Rare logo for those games?

Chosen answer: The game is a compilation of original Rare games and characters they developed in which licensing was available. They did not include games based on licensed intellectual property or games with licensing issues (such as Donkey Kong Country and Goldeneye). So for non-Microsoft games, Microsoft was able to obtain licenses from the publishers. Rare Replay includes games from various platforms they developed games for (including ZX Spectrum) and was part of Microsoft's emulator reveal. As such, the games are as original as possible, with minimum edits, including the use of former Rare logos.


Question: How did they get Andy to the hospital after he banged his head on the Eiffel Tower? It seems highly unlikely there were any elevators around.


Chosen answer: The Eiffel Tower has several elevators in use that they could have taken.


Question: Why was Kevin's family so mean to him?

Chosen answer: The ones who were mean just saw Kevin as a brat. However, it's not uncommon in situations of being in an overcrowded house to easily lose one's patience and temper and become frustrated with small, but irritating things; which seems to happen to his mother. Bud just has that general big brother contempt for his kid brother, but obviously still loves him, along with everyone else in the family, at the end when he finds out Kevin is safe.


Question: I know this has nothing to do with movie's plot, but I'm going to ask it anyway. How did the hijackers know that destroying the twin towers would affect the US economy?

Chosen answer: The World Trade Center, otherwise known as the "twin towers, " housed many corporate headquarters, media outlets, and financial institutions, both domestic and international. A comprehensive list of the World Trade Center tenants can be found at: The hijackers knew that the attack, if successful, would strike at the heart of national and international commerce, thus affecting the US economy.

Question: Was it the fall alone that killed Mufasa? Or was he trampled to death?

Chosen answer: It's not explained what exactly killed him, but probably a combination of both of those.


Chosen answer: The main cause of her death is not specifically stated in the show, but Howard does mention that she passed away in her sleep. The cause of her death may have been something relating to her weight problems.

Question: Whenever the gang always have dinner together why is it always in Leonard and Sheldon's apartment?


Chosen answer: Out of everyone's apartments, the gang likely eats and hangs out at Leonard and Sheldon's apartment because it has the largest living room space and they would be given the most amount of room to interact in. Raj's apartment and Penny's apartment do not appear to have as much living room space as Leonard and Sheldon's apartment, so they may not want to hang out there, nor would they want to hang out at Howard's place since his mother would be there.

Casual Person

Question: As Matt Hooper is analyzing the dead body, he yells at Martin not to smoke. Why does he follow that up with "this is what happens" while holding up her severed arm? What does that line refer to?

Chosen answer: I watched a clip of this scene, and it appears that part of the original dialogue was edited out. Hooper is referring to what happens when a shark goes into a feeding frenzy.


Question: If Jonathan thought Sara was with another man, why did he call off the wedding with Halley?

Chosen answer: He didn't want to marry Halley anyway.

Question: If Carson's plan indicated he was smarter than Kyle, given the way it was set up, then why did it fail? I know Kyle worked out he was a terrorist, what I don't get is what made her eventually become suspicious of him. What Carson arrogant or something? Did he make mistakes in his plan, if so what? What mistakes did he make that made his plan fail?

Chosen answer: This was a conspiracy involving a number of people, so it was not Carson's plan alone. Any plan, no matter how well plotted, will have flaws and unexpected variables. Kyle didn't suspect Carson until the very end when she was talking to the captain, who thought she was a terrorist extorting money. Not every detail of how she fully realised Carson's involvement is explained, but when Kyle saw she was being framed, and as Carson nervously attempted to leave the plane, knowing the plan was unraveling, Kyle cobbled together various clues and made an accurate assumption that Carson had been orchestrating the events during the flight.


Question: When a police officer comes to Kevin's house, the officer rings the doorbell, but since he gets no answer, assumes no one is home. But in real life, wouldn't a policeman break into the house, and then search the house, and then bring the child out of the house, and take to him to his family, just in case a the child did exactly what Kevin did, hiding under the bed or couch? Also wouldn't Kevin's parents get arrested for leaving Kevin behind if the police did find out they left him behind?

Chosen answer: To answer your first question, no. As a right protected under the Fourth Amendment, the police are prohibited from entering a private residence without a warrant and probable cause. Since, as you point out, the policeman assumes no one is home, there's no cause to enter; had he heard, say, a cry for help from inside the house, that would constitute an exigent circumstance, an exception that would allow him to enter in order to help someone in imminent danger. To answer your second question, I doubt it. What happened wasn't done deliberately or out of neglect; it was an accident caused by circumstances beyond their control; accidents can, and do, happen.

Cubs Fan

Question: Like the other Losers, Bill says he'd forgotten what happened during their childhood, but when he decides to go back into the sewer, he tells he others he's lived with it and has been afraid all his life. If he forgot, how could it still haunt him?


Chosen answer: Even if the specific details are forgotten, the emotional damage remains and small clues can trigger a response.


Question: Despite being a remake of the original game for the Game Boy Advance, why do Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 use the Microsoft-Rare logo instead of the Nintendo Rareware logo?

Chosen answer: This answer would be similar to the answer to the Diddy Kong Racing question. Microsoft allowed Rare to develop handheld games for Nintendo since Microsoft didn't make handheld consoles and Microsoft said they weren't going to publish any Gameboy Advance games and any company was free too. However, Rare changed their logo in 2003 (corresponding to the Microsoft purchase) and that's the logo they used on all the games they developed, despite the platform the game was released on.


Question: If Hoffman designed Riggs' test so that everyone else dies and he comes out as a hero, then doesn't that violate Jigsaw's rules?

Chosen answer: Throughout the entire series, Jigsaw and his followers violate their own rules frequently. It happens in every single film, including the original. They may be brilliant, but you also gotta remember... they're completely nuts.

Question: When Amanda sits down beside John, before his procedure performed by Dr. Lynn, John tells Amanda that he needs her to do some things for him. He tells her that there is an envelope with her name on it in his drawer, we assume that this contains the things he needed her to do. However, later on in flashbacks in Saw 3D we see that Hoffman actually puts the envelope in the drawer. We also learn that written on the paper inside the envelope Hoffman reveals to Amanda that he knows that she was with Cecil the night that Jill lost her baby due to Cecil's actions, and if she doesn't kill Lynn he will tell John what he knows. So why would John know about the envelope at all?


Chosen answer: First, slight correction, we actually see Hoffman wrote the note in "Saw IV", not "Saw 3D." And the answer to your question is never revealed. It's possible that Hoffman told John he was leaving a note for Amanda. It's also possible that John did leave a note, but Hoffman replaced it. It's possible John knew what the note said, and was using this to test Amanda. There are plenty of possibilities. But it's never overtly explained.
