Question: When Bond gets trapped underwater, could it be possible for him to survive using the air in the tyres?

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: The Mythbusters tested that very thing on their show. The result was that it was impossible to breathe in air from a leaking tire while underwater.

Question: How did Manny know the humans would go to glacier pass?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because they have a settlement on the other side.

Question: Did Manny think if they cleaned the baby's diaper he would stop crying? What difference would that make?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Manny is a Mammoth, he doesn't know how to take care of a human baby. He assumed (correctly) that if there is poop in the baby's diaper, the baby would be uncomfortable and cry. Like babies do in real life.

Question: When Hermione says "if we succeed more than one innocent life could be spared" why was she saying it in such a surprised tone?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because it was at that moment she understood what Dumbledore had meant when he said earlier that more than one life could be spared - meaning that both Buckbeak and Sirius Black could be saved.

Question: In Buck's first theory scene, when Sid attacks Mummy dinosaur with the broccoli, what is all that green stuff that takes over the picture? Has the dinosaur turned into the broccoli? If so, why did Manny say " where's the dinosaur" if the dinosaur became the broccoli?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: When Rachael leaves and Deckard is looking at the photograph and flips it over, there's writing on the back. What was written and what does it mean? And was this something Rachael wrote on the back before leaving? Looking online I could only find people guessing what was written or what it meant. So is there a correct answer that I missed or is it just an ambiguous clue?

Bishop73

Chosen answer: Keep in mind, Deckard already determined that Rachel was a replicant. Her memories were implants, and her family photos were fake. So, the text on the back of the photo was probably meaningless, placed there just to lend another level of authenticity to Rachel's false memories. The text appears to be a phone number at the top (CAS 4217) followed by an address (68 W. Thika Blvd, South Wenton, Waytton). The word or name "Waytton" has a line drawn through it, apparently striking it out. This was possibly Rachel's childhood home phone number and address (completely fake, of course), which had sentimental value for Rachel but was useless information for Deckard's assignment.

Question: Why weren't Thor and Hulk in Civil War? If they would've been in the movie, whose side would they join and why?

Chosen answer: Most likely due to the events of Thor: Ragnarok. At the end of Age of Ultron Hulk/Banner disappears because he doesn't want to be involved in the fight anymore. Thor was in London with Jane but we don't know what he was up to. If they were to choose sides they both probably would have been on Cap's side. Banner doesn't want to be used as a weapon and Thor wants to protect Earth without being told what to do.

Question: Perhaps a bit of an odd question but when the pack falls back and Soto asks Diego where the baby is, was he asking because he was angry he couldn't see the baby right there to take it, or was he just wondering where the baby was as he couldn't see it?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He was being angrily sarcastic, because he realises Diego betrayed him.

Question: Was Soto going to hold the baby for ransom or eat it or kill it?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Eat it.

Question: What was with that scene when Sidney was going through her closet and a dramatic change in music occurred. Did something in the background occur that I didn't see? Was there nothing?

Chosen answer: The dramatic change in music is a red herring and arguably an example of foreshadowing. Initially, the unsettling music was supposed to trick viewers into thinking Ghostface was in the closet when Sidney first opened it. Later on though, Ghostface hides in the same closet before attacking Sidney.

Question: When Han and Luke are rescuing Leia, why didn't Luke use his lightsaber during his mission on the Death Star?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: It's possible that he wasn't experienced enough with it, or at least felt like he wasn't, to be of any use. Remember, in the first film, Luke's total experience in handling the lightsaber was only a few screen minutes before he, Han, Chewie and Obi-wan attempted the rescue. It's also quite probable that Obi-wan warned Luke NOT to carry the lightsaber during the rescue attempt; it was, after all, Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber. If Luke (Anakin's son) boarded the Deathstar armed with Anakin's lightsaber, that peculiar disturbance in the Force could potentially lead Darth Vader straight to Luke, rather than to Obi-wan.

Question: What exactly did Del mean when he said he doesn't have a home? He doesn't look homeless.

raph

Chosen answer: He means that, as a salesman, he's always traveling, rather than being based out of one particular city. There's a darker implication however: he's a widower and doesn't feel like he really has a home since he lost his wife.

Giving Back - S1-E5

Question: Why didn't Opie tell the club why he was in financial struggle due to his time in jail? He did what the club wanted him to do which was be a brotherhood and to not give up on the club, but he won't even tell Jax his financial troubles.

Answer: He knew the club was hurting financially because of the gun warehouse burning down.

I think with Opie it was more of a pride thing.

Question: When young Joe retires from his looper job after killing old Joe, and also leaves Kansas for Shanghai, how would he be present in Kansas to kill old Joe the 2nd time (when he fails)? I didn't get this.

Chosen answer: The movie is called looper. Meaning these people are stuck in a loop. Unless broken it's going to continue. Both Joes break the loop. Old Joe first, by escaping young Joe. Young Joe again, by killing himself.

Question: Why did Manny look so shocked when he saw the baby in the river? I thought he didn't care about anything now? Or did he remember something when he saw the baby.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: The baby was innocent and helpless, not the hunters who killed his family. He still had compassion.

Question: How come Manny forgave Diego for betraying them? Most Mammoths wouldn't.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He forgave Diego because not only did Diego warn them on what he was originally sent to do, but also helped them plan a way to defeat the sabres.

Question: Were there ever plans for a sequel, if so why was it never made?

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: A sequel was not only planned, but money was spent developing sets and costumes. However, Dolph Lundgren did not want to reprise the role, so Laird Hamilton was picked to play He-Man with Albert Pyu set to direct. Canon Films, who produced the first movie, was also planning on producing a Spider-Man movie. However, Canon Films still owed money to Mattel and Marvel for the character rights that they couldn't feasibly pay, so both projects had to be scrapped. Incidentally, not wanting to let money go to waste on sets and costumes, they had Pyu come up with a movie to utilize them, which resulted in Cyborg starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Question: Are Bullock's reactions to all the situations she encounters logical, considering she is a trained astronaut? For instance: she repeatedly noticed that she is running out of oxygen, but she still keeps talking, screaming and hyperventilating. The first thing you have to do is to get your breath under control, but she keep talking and screaming all the way... Would a person like Bullock get through all the NASA psychological tests?

Chosen answer: Dr. Stone isn't an experienced astronaut. She is on her 1st mission, a mission that is continually disastrous and claims the lives of two people. Her panic, even considering her training, is more than justified.

Question: When Elena and Damon were turned into rippers they were confined because they fed on vampires. Why was Lily not a threat, yet she was a ripper and never fed on vampires.

Alana paulatte

New this month Answer: Because Lily's humanity was not turned off as Elena and Stefan's were...therefore she had some control over her actions and had a conscience whereas the other two did not at the time.
