Question: How did Ronnie do what he did to the guy who was about to sack him during the Groveton game? Is that even possible?

Question: After reading the book there's still two things I don't understand. 1. Why were so many students afraid of the Vigils? They weren't intimidating at all. The only thing they did was have students do childish pranks. 2. If they were such pranksters, why didn't they do the pranks themselves instead of having other students do them?

Question: Why does Scott want to be Santa?

Answer: Seeing as he has been Santa for quite some time now - he doesn't want to stop being Santa, he likes it, and is happy with the way things are.

Answer: The scene takes place on Hollywood Blvd, which is known for having people dress in costumes (and tourists take pictures with them, usually for money). There are also people who, as part of their costume, wear stilts. There was a guy who wore stilts as part of his seaweed monster costume who claims that's him, although in the film, the creature seems more robotic than seaweed covered. It seems the film makers were going to use this mystery extra for a more iconic establishing shot, but forewent it and so this is all we see of him.

Answer: Well my best guess after watching it and freezing the frame is that it's supposed to be someone in a costume. The street they are at has a theater, so there could be a premiere and someone is doing PR or advertisement dressed as a character. It's definitely someone on stilts wearing a cowboy hat and some kind of body armour.

Question: Why couldn't the fuel cells be opened again once they were closed?

Answer: The reactant valves to the fuel cells could not be re-opened once they were closed (except by ground servicing) because they are very delicate and must be precisely calibrated. Although CAPCOM tells Lovell to manually close the valves for cells 1 and 3, they had already failed and closed so this had no effect.

Question: How did Cole know about "Stuttering Stanley"?

raph

Answer: The most likely scenario is that a ghost at the school told him.

Jason Hoffman

Answer: Near the end, it is revealed that Cole has seen the ghosts of teachers that died in the fire at the school when "Stuttering Stanley" was a student, so it would make sense that one of them told him.

Question: Why is Carmen listening to Juni about her feet stinking and wasting time instead of just ignoring him and moving on to find the transmooker?

James Bond Special: Part 1 - S6-E1

Question: The three magnets Adam brought are same diameter, three times as thick as the other ten magnets. Are they also stronger than the other ten magnets?

Question: Does Sidious just use his apprentices as advantages to his evil needs, and doesn't care at all when they die?

Answer: The "rule of two" the Sith adhere to means there are always only a master and apprentice. Both continually look to improve their situation. The apprentice hopes to eventually kill his master and become master himself, while the master is constantly searching for a better apprentice.

Question: Did Obi-Wan go to Mustafar just to kill Anakin, or possibly try to redeem him?

Answer: He went there to stop Anakin at any cost, whether by converting him back from the dark side, subduing him, or killing him.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Why is The Hoggett's granddaughter a spoiled brat and grandson very quiet?

Question: How did Anakin catch on fire while on the lava bank?

Answer: Being that close to active lava mean his clothes would easily catch on fire. Both Anakin and Obi-Wan were likely using the force in some way to shield themselves from the heat. Once Anakin was injured, he became vulnerable, and lying on the ground made that worse.

Children of the Gods (2) - S1-E2

Question: How did Teal'c work out that O'Neil could save his people?

Question: After Wayne represents the Chiefs at their trial, his last words to them were in their language, and they responded in kind. What was said in their language, and the translation?

Question: Since David told McKittrick that he thought he was only playing a game and at the time didn't know that he hacked into WOPR, McKittrick tells him that they're still on Defcon 4. Why would it still be on Defcon 4 instead of it going back to Defcon 5 after David confessed everything?

Answer: McKittrick doesn't believe David. He thinks he's covering for accomplices...most likely Russian spies.

Question: When you look at Abuelita's ofrenda, the bottom row has more pictures of family members. Where were they during Día de Los Muertos? They couldn't have gone to the true afterlife since they were on the ofrenda right?

New this month Answer: They simply didn't appear on screen. That's all. (Although I don't remember seeing photos whose characters were unaccounted for. Must watch again...) By the way: "Abuelita" means "grandmother" in Spanish. The character's first name was Elena. (You probably know her last name was Rivera).

FleetCommand

Answer: These other ancestors may only be faces on the family's altar. Their photographs may still be put up, but if there are no anecdotes to remember them by, their names and faces may not be strong enough to count as being remembered.
