"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 Why do TV comedy programs have laugh tracks?
New York Magazine article Please Chuckle Here - The return of the sitcom laugh track: If the show’s funny, a laugh track doesn’t make any difference. If it’s not, the [laugh track] may help.

comment Were they goblins or orcs?
@poepje - continued: A clear illustration that Tolkien considered goblins and orcs to be the same thing... is that in "The Hobbit" Gandalf asks Thorin if he remembers "Azog the Goblin", while in all his other writings Tolkien describes Azog as a "great Orc."

comment Were they goblins or orcs?
@poepje - The LotR-Wiki also says the same: Tolkien explained in a note at the start of The Hobbit that he was using English to represent the languages used by the characters, and that goblin (or hobgoblin for the larger kind) was the English translation he was using for the word Orc

comment How did the Paladins catch Jumpers before the discovery of electricity?
It might be worth mentioning that the Paladins were created for the film, they are not in original book.

comment Name of the Paladins' weapons?
A more interesting question would be: How did the Paladins catch Jumpers before the invention of electricity (according to Griffin they have been catching Jumpers "since medieval times")

comment In Sherlock: Study in Pink how does the choice of bottles work?
Vizzini's 'logic' is not meant to be taken seriously (e.g. "the poison comes from Australia, and Australia is entirely people with criminals, ergo...), so I'm not sure how this tongue-in-cheek scene from The Princess Bride is supposed to explain what happens in 'Sherlock Holmes'.

How do you define 'a generation'? Takezo Kensei lived ~400 years ago.

comment What is the Butterfly-Effect in Mr. Nobody?
@ashutosh - The "butterfly effect" is not an ability or superpower, it's a term for 'small changes can lead to big differences'.
