Question: Regardless of the Major's interference, what is the ideal way for a sniper to take out two targets in that situation with a bolt-action 7.62 sniper rifle?

Chosen answer: Strange as it may sound humans take a long time to process the unknown. Once a sniper has patterned the subjects he will take the shot on the one furthest away. Hearing glass break and his friend thud to the floor. The remaining subject will take at least 4 seconds to comprehend what just happened. He will obsever, decypher, and react. Each one of those takes at least a second and a half, maybe a little less. By the time the second guy has comprehended what is going on the second bullet is already hitting its target. In the history of snipers this has been done.

Question: Who is the guy getting on the bus yelling "Semper Fi" at the end of the movie?

Chosen answer: He was just an old former Marine (I would assume a Vietnam vet) that wanted to congratulate the Marines, and give them a better welcome home than the Vietnam vets ever got.

Chosen answer: The Allied forces identified five heavily-defended "exits" off Omaha Beach, which had to be cleared in order for the invasion to proceed inland: Dog One, Dog Three, Easy One, Easy Three and Fox One. The real Dog One was a road off the beach, although the movie portrays it as a stepped footpath.

Question: How did the gyro captain and especially the little boy get back to the rest of the group from the refinery without attracting Humungus and his crew? The caravan left in the opposite direction like 15 minutes before, mad max had no vehicle to drive back, the boy can't drive at all, and the gyro captain crashed his gyro. But in the end the boy and the gyro captain manage to get back into the caravan before sunset without Humungus following.

Chosen answer: The gyrocopter was just unable to fly. It still could roll along the ground. It is possible that he repaired it to get back to the rest of the group. As for Humungus and his minions, I'm pretty sure Humungus was killed in the impact with the truck that Max was driving. The few surviving minions probably lost interest in the whole affair when they lost their leader which one can assume when you see them turn around after seeing the spectacular collision and not even bothering to see if anyone survived.

Question: When Inspector Lee is in the Foo Chow Restaurant, why is the waitress's necklace so important? In a later shot, Lee grabs the necklace from the waitress and runs. Was that Soo Yung's necklace?

Chosen answer: Yes, it was. It is the necklace that he gives her at the beginning of the film, before they leave for America. He takes it from the waitress so that he can give it back to Soo Yung when he rescues her.

Question: What is so interesting about the number of times that Jack and Rose's names were said in the movie? Is there some meaning behind the numbers?

Chosen answer: There's absolutely nothing interesting about it. Probably the only reason that this information appears anywhere is that they do say the names rather a lot - somebody, for reasons unknown, decided to count them.

Question: When everybody is wondering on how to escape the aliens, Fry asks Johns why he doesn't tell the group about the real reason Owens died. Was Johns in someway responsible for killing Owens? If so, then how?

Chosen answer: She's not asking about why Owens died, she's asking why he had to die in agony when Johns had a secret stash of morphine that could have eased his pain.

Question: Knowing that every other major character from the original trilogy (IV, V, and VI) who was old enough (even Jabba) had a cameo of some sort in the new trilogy, is there anywhere in the movie that Han Solo appears? I know he's several years older than Luke (he always calls Luke 'kid'), and Luke was just being born in the end of episode III, so Han was definitely alive then.

Chosen answer: No, he's not in there. He'd only be about 10 years old at the time and living as a thief and pickpocket on an old trading vessel plying the spacelanes near Corellia - as the storyline never goes anywhere near there, there's no way that they could have got him into the story, even if they'd wanted to.

1969 - S2-E21

Question: In this episode who are the hippies, and why are they so important? Their names were Michael & Jennifer, and when the team are going back to the future the hippies wanted to go also, but Jack started to tell them something and then stopped. I just want to know if they are someone from future episodes or something.

mrslaura

Chosen answer: Michael and Jennifer have never showed up past this episode. SG-1 led them to believe (with the help of a Zat gun) that they are aliens, they never told them they were actually from the future. They were simply a couple of nice people willing to help.

The Stolen Eagle - S1-E1

Question: I don't understand why Pullo is so angry with Vorenus and thinks he needs to apologise. Having fought in Caesar's army for as long as Pullo has he would be very well aware of the repercussions for what he did, why would he blame Vorenus for abiding the law and doing what is required of him as a centurion?

Chosen answer: Its Pullo's nature to resent people of higher standing than him. His jealousy of Vorenus in later episodes, which in part leads to their falling out, is proof of that. From Pullo's point of view, Vorenus just got better breaks to get where he is in the army and so, isn't really his superior. That, plus his natural arrogance is explantion enough for his behaviour in spite of the fact that he broke the rules and was being fairly punished.

Question: When Batman is at the docks, where all the drugs are being delivered, Batman somehow manages to take out the driver of Falcone's car, without Falcone seeing him. Could someone please tell me how this would be possible?

Chosen answer: We see Falcone get out of the car before Bruce attacks the final group of men; a couple of seconds later, he's deep into the maze of cargo containers, so there's clearly been a jump in time. Bruce simply took out the driver shortly after Falcone got out, then went back to assault the rest of the henchmen. You have to factor in the time jump for it to work, but it does fit together.

Question: In the jail cell, as Richard Harris dies, he tells Jim Caviezel not to commit the crime he now serves. What's the point of this? Telling him not to be an honest man and have a good life and be framed for high treason?

Chosen answer: That's not what he was telling him; Jim Caviezel did not do what he was imprisoned for. Richard Harris is telling him not to do that thing after he gets out. Harris was trying to keep him from trying to get revenge because it would consume him and make him even more bitter.

Question: What happened to the kid who was fishing at the end who the guy Harry was after took hostage? I don't think Harry shot through him, but I didn't see him when the camera pans out for the credits, is he dead?

Chosen answer: If you watch closely, you see the killer throw him to the side and then take aim at Harry, at which point Harry shoots him. Since we don't see the kid again, we can assume he ran away as soon as the killer let him go.

Jason Hoffman

Not true. Actually, Harry sees the boy, and appears to be lowering his weapon, and then blasts Scorpio... and when the bullet hits him, he is still holding the boy hostage... It is only after Harry shoots him, and he falls to the ground, that we see the boy running away.

Question: What happened to Tank? Every time he is spoken of it is as if he is dead. Well he survived The Matrix so how did he die?

Chosen answer: Marcus Chong wanted a large salary increase to return as Tank. Since he was a fairly minor character, the producers refused and he was written out. Thus his character must have died between the Matrix and Reloaded.

Question: Once when I watched this on TV the laser room scene was different. 1) Bond pulls out a mirror and reflects the beam to cut the straps holding him to the table. 2) Bond runs off to get away but gets shot by a tranquiliser gun. Has anybody else seen this version?

Chosen answer: I have found no information about the existence of such a version and I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist. But your description does sound an awful lot like an episode of The Simpsons called 'You Only Move Twice' (S08E02). In that episode Homer gets a new boss, Hank Scorpio, who happens to be a super villain. In one scene Scorpio has capture an agent called Bont and is about to kill him with a laser like in Goldfinger. Bont escapes by using a coin to deflect the laser and cut the straps holding him. Bont isn't stopped by a tranquilizer gun though, but by Homer tackling him.
