comment Is there any significance in Capt. Jack Sparrow being called Mr. Smith in the first Pirates of the Carribean?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit well, I believe you're wrong about that - I strongly suspect the movie was targeted at an American audience (to be clear, I mean to the extent it was targeted at all), and furthermore, I don't believe it's silly to do so. But I suppose it doesn't really matter for this answer.

@LightnessRacesinOrbit I didn't claim that there were more people in the US than out of it, nor that the movie made most of its money domestically. I said that the movie was primarily targeted at an American audience. (To be fair, I don't know offhand that this is true, but I strongly suspect it is, and that the same applies to most major American films.)

@LightnessRacesinOrbit true, though I think it's more relevant that the movie was primarily targeted at an American audience.

comment Are Sean Bean's characters more prone to die than others?
@KeyBrdBasher you don't need to tell me to think hard about the premise of the question. It makes no difference; I don't understand your point.

comment Are Sean Bean's characters more prone to die than others?
@KeyBrdBasher I think the opposite is true: this question is asking for a quantitative result that can be computed from publicly available data. I would argue it's one of the least opinion-based questions on the site. (And the top answer supports that, since it shows statistics to back up its conclusion.)

comment How precisely do we know the research topics of the scientists in TBBT?
I'm not sure if this is on topic here, but it's not on topic at Physics so I figured it'd be worth a try.

comment What do we know of Barney's occupation?
It was explained in full an episode or two ago, so an update to this is probably in order
