"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 Identify movie with quote “there is a pattern to predict the future”
If you have just seen it on TV, why not simply check the schedule of that channel?

comment What happens to actor salaries around seasons 6-7 of a show?
Well, since there are shows that have 8 or more seasons under their belt increasing salaries don't necessarily have to kill a show. But there is some truth to it, see e.g. this interview with Bruce Campbell, where he talks about Burn Notice: ... seven’s a good number. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with seven. It gets too expensive after that, everybody wants big money....

A famous examples is Friends: $22,500 per episode in the first season VS $1 million in the last two seasons. - I'm not sure why you doubt salary increases, there is tons of news about TV actors getting a pay raise. E.g. I still remember the news about the voice actors of The Simpsons going on strike.

comment Sherlock: Who is John Talking About?
@PaulStock - Does every American know who e.g. JLo or LiLo are? I guess it depends on how familiar one is with tabloids.

Early on the story actually did have a Fountain of Youth subplot, but it got dropped (the prehistoric bird's egg was supposed to be a youth potion)

comment Why do they sometimes not use a real operating system in films?
After looking into it a bit more I agree with the points (1) and (3), and to a certain degree (2). Points (4) and (5) are basically the same, and I'm not sure that's really a problem. Point (6) is just an example of point (1).

comment Why doesn't John Spartan know how to use the 3 shells?
@jampez77 - Yes, I have thought about it making sense that prisoners get an "update" right before they are released. But from what I remember that hasn't be mentioned in the movie. But creating individual updates would be a pain in the ass: When was he frozen? What was the world like then? What changed since then? - Just imagine someone from 1980 waking up today. It's virtually impossible to name every detail that has changed since then.

Apple won’t pay to have their products featured, but they are more than willing to hand out an endless amount of computers, iPads, and iPhones

@jampez77 - It's a rehabilitation program. Sure, with that "technology" you could teach them all kind of things, but it's a prison, not a school. A prison probably wouldn't bother much with keeping track of its inmates knowledge to update it whenever something changes.
