"To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.."
(Elbert Hubbard)


I studied Physics at the University of Vienna, but I'm interested in all natural sciences.

Since I don't believe in life after death I try to explore and learn as much as I can about this world.

comment Is it really possible to create a mind palace?
Maybe one should distinguish between 'mind palace' and 'mind palace as depicted in Sherlock' (e.g. Magnussen's "Google Glass"), because the OP mentions: ... recall information from their mind similar to searching for a file in Windows

comment Why doesn't John use a silencer?
I do remember him using a silencer every now and again. - And he definitely did use one in the last aired episode (early April) where he and Shaw go to a High School reunion.

comment What line was cut after “nobody's perfect” from Some Like It Hot?
Trivia: "Well, nobody's perfect" wasn't actually supposed to be the last line.

Just a side note: The Wind Rises, which was also nominated, has a higher IMDb and Metascore rating than Frozen.

comment What trope would Indiana never leaving his hat behind fall under?
Just to clarify, the Indy Hat Roll is getting through a closing door just in time, but I think the OP is actually looking for never leaving an object one holds dear behind.

comment Woman runs on stairs (or hall) and see marble head on plinth
I'd guess The Avengers (the cinematic version of the british TV series). Emma Peel is trapped in a mansion with M.C. Escher stairs and I remember her doing something to determine that she is running in circles. - Sean Connery plays the bad guy.

comment Are there any movies which use both a remix and its original in their soundtrack?
This doesn't seem to be an identify-this-movie question, but rather one that asks to name-movies-with-'X'-in-it.

comment Why and how did sherlock fake his death?
3. The way I see it Sherlock could have just lain down on the sidewalk himself. - Instead he runs out of John's sight so a man can put a bit of blood on his forehead, which seems pointless though, because once he does lay down on the sidewalk (replacing the corpse) his helpers put blood on his face again. - And there is no blood to be seen when the corpse is lying on the ground. The blood is poured on the sidewalk after the corpse has been removed and Sherlock lies in its place.
