"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 Russell Crowe in the opening scene of Beverly Hills Cop?
@NapoleonWilson - The problem is that a summary bears the possibility of misinterpretation, especially when there is no clear cut answer. A quote gives you what was actually said. - I agree that for longer answers a summary or emphasizing certain sentences (e.g. by making them bold) is a good idea. - I prefer to present (hopefully relevant) information. What the readers take from it is up to them. I don't want to force feed them my interpretation.

@NapoleonWilson - regarding your edit, I prefer to let the quote stand on it's own. People should draw their own conclusions. I think the quote is short enough to not need a "summary".

comment What is the “The Final Problem”?
Why can't they coexist? Moriarty keeps commiting crimes, Sherlock keeps trying to put him behind bars. Keep trying to outsmart each other would solve their boredom. - Yes, Moriarty and Holmes being at odds with each other is a problem, but that alone can't make it a final problem (criminals are obviously always at odds with crime solvers). There is no reason to kill one another, unless they want a final solution.

comment What is the “The Final Problem”?
Boredom can surely be a problem, but how is it a final problem instead of just a problem? - Death, either his or Sherlock's, would be a final solution, but again, why is the problem final?

comment Why didn't James Earl Jones get voice over credit for Star Wars?
Hear Geoffrey Holder's voice in this 'Uncola' commercial and judge for yourself if he sounds like James Earl Jones.

Btw, Robert Duncan is the composer who does the music for "Castle".

@Chad - But he also wasn't credited for the second film, even though it was clear by then that the first one wasn't 'a disaster'.

comment What song is Castle humming at the end of S01E07?
According to the Castle Wiki it's an "action theme" that often plays when Castle gets physical with a criminal, implying that it is an original composition for the show. - TV Tropes says: 70's-vintage "action theme song" - Castle is playing cop in that scene, so it makes sense that the tune is related to that.

comment Who is responsible for movie titles in foreign countries?
... For german speakers: Deutsche Filmtitel: Ich bin Mittäter and Englische Filmtitel sind hip give a little more insight (e.g. the local distributor does have to seek approval from the international distributor or producing studio).

comment Who is responsible for movie titles in foreign countries?
It's usually the local film distributor's responsibility. Although major studios often have their own distribution company in important foreign markets. Disney even has a division called Disney Character Voices International to oversee translation and dubbing in foreign countries...
