comment What's the origin of the “'ello, gov'nor” line?
Good find. You should include your info from the comment above. Seems relevant too.

comment How do the Reavers reproduce?
Ok good point. But the Firefly crew checked the atmosphere in the ship and decided it was okay. Also they did not experience any effect while on board. Could be that it just does not work that fast. I'm still not sold on the drug staying in the ships for so long, though, especially if they regularly dock other ships. How long ago was the Miranda incident?

comment How do the Reavers reproduce?
Well, things like Sheperd Book's past were explained outside of show and movie, so I guess there is a chance of some additional info or at least a convincing theory. I mainly was confused that the explanation in the movie seems to contradict what we learned in the show and hope there is an in-universe way to make the parts fit together.

comment How do the Reavers reproduce?
Interesting and cool theory! Two problems: 1. The drug being so long-lived in the air of the ships seems like a stretch, unless the Reavers somehow produce it. (maybe it's contagious?) 2. In Serenity they said that the drug affects only 0.1% in that way, for most people it worked calming (too good even).

comment How are water scenes (with flooding) achieved without injuring actors?
Hm, I don't see why this would be much different than any other action scene where stuntmen are involved? Do you have a specific scene in mind where you think it could not be pulled off with "normal" stunt tricks?

comment What is the point of the girlfriend scenes?
So did he break his obsession in the end? After all he was pursuing her again, probably because he noticed how unhealthy his behaviour was getting?

comment When did Raj start talking around women without alcohol? (Season 8 - Episode 6)
Please check if the question in my comment above already has the answer you are looking for. If you think it does not, could you please include the season and episode number in the question?

@Dredd Personally I think it's perfectly fine for people to remain anonymous here if they choose to, even as a moderator. After all we trust them because of their actions on the site, not because of their name.

comment Do kidnappers typically use authentication by newspaper?
This should be migrated to Skeptics imho. Not sure if that's possible now that we graduated?

comment In Ocean's Thirteen, how can a loaded roulette ball's outcome be predicted down to three digits?
Funfact: The numbers they bet on correspond to the movie titles (Ocean's 11, 12 and 13),

comment Why wasn't the poltergeist Peeves in the Harry Potter movies?
not a central character in Harry Potter movies - Am I missing something or should this read "books"?

What's the source? (Or did you interview her yourself? :D)

comment Why did Sherlock fake his death this way?
The "How" question is not a duplicate. (as this here is a "why" question) The "why and how" question might have counted as a duplicate, but it got closed. I think this question shouldn't be closed. See the help text: "This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question."

comment Is there a deeper meaning to Fabienne's pot belly talk?
I always thought that dialogue was strange as well. I guess it's meant to establish what kind of relationship Butch and Fabienne have, that they talk about anything, even stupid thoughts that come to their mind like "I would look good with a pot belly." ;)

comment Why did Sherlock fake his death this way?
Maybe I missed it: Where is it implied that the last version Sherlock tells is not the truth? Because the conspiracy guy said:„That doesn't make any sense!“? I thought that was a joke on conspiracy believers, in the sense that they wouldn't believe the truth if they knew it, because it would not live up to their fantasy. I should rewatch that episode..

comment Characterizing Mark's relationship with du Pont?
I tried to keep spoilers out of the title. Seeing as the question is very specific, I couldn't think of a better way than keeping the title ominous.

comment What does Marco's answer to the Khan about women and wine mean?
Solid answer, but I still don't get how the idiom translates to the meaning „all wines/women taste good in their own way“. Probably because I'm not a native speaker. Any chance you could elaborate on that part?
