comment Why is it Okay for movies / TV shows, to show that their story is based on real events when it is actually not?
The movie Dragnet was more of a parody of the TV series, and it would have been incomplete if they had not used the original opening. The fact that the plot is a complete fabrication is just another element of the parody.

Any other details you can remember such as language? Time frame the movie was set in (modern era, 1950's, etc)? Every detail helps.

comment Does the passage of time affect humans differently in Oz?
Actually, there is nothing wrong with your analysis. My comments are orthogonal to everything that you said.

comment Does the passage of time affect humans differently in Oz?
The most important point is that L Frank Baum was a fervent supporter of women's suffrage and that pretty much all of his major female characters were strong and independent. Glinda certainly would not need a non-magical humbug to save the day - she was quite capable in her own right, and demonstrated that fact in the books.

You are essentially correct, except for the fact that the people who made the movie screwed up the entire story in important and fundamental ways.

comment How would the WOPR super computer (“Joshua”) in War Games compare with modern computers?
My reading of the graph would tend to say more like 10^9 for 1983, rather than 10^7. Otherwise, good answer.

comment Why didn't Doc and Marty buy “petrol” in 1885?
As to compatibility, it might be the right chemicals, but I would imagine that the refining would have been a bit crude. A 1955 junker American car could burn stuff that a Delorian, being an expensive sports car, would have found quite unpalatable.
