"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 does Bill Cage wake up in the helicopter?
@Keen - That's another question, why did Cage restart at that exact moment? He died at different times, sometimes the day after, shortly after landing on the beach (or hours after the landing), sometimes he died on the same day (trying to sneak away and getting run over by a truck, or during training with Rita). Yet he always restarts at the same time, so it's not a simple "24h back in time".

comment Why does Bill Cage wake up in the helicopter?
As far as I understand it, it's the Omega who has the ability to control time. - As you say, the death of an Alpha is just a trigger, a signal that tells the Omega it has to reset the day. - Cage somehow ceased control of that ability by getting Alpha blood on him (the Omega could no longer restart the day, only Cage could). - So I'm not sure about your first sentence, because I don't think Alphas have any time control powers.

comment Why does Bill Cage wake up in the helicopter?
@Keen - When Cage tries to run away from the General's office he gets tasered. I'm guessing he was out for a few hours the most, which would mean that the helicopter ride and waking up at Heathrow happen on the same day.

At first I thought he jumps back in time 24h, but the fight with the Omega happened while it was still dark, and the helicopter flies by Big Ben at 8:40 a.m.

comment What was the connection between the Mayfly Man, Tessa and the other women?
I'm wondering how the Mayfly man managed to find these women. It's unlikely that their dating profile said "I work(ed) for Major Sholto".

comment How could Harold Finch keep his fortune while faking his own death?
With his fiancée he used the alias Harold Martin. And it was Harold Martin who died in 2010. - When Finch enrolled at MIT he used the alias Harold Wren. It was Harold Wren who, together with Nathan Ingram, founded the tech company IFT, which made Ingram a rich man (so maybe that's also how Finch got rich). Harold Wren is an alias that he still uses. - I wouldn't be surprised if Harold spread his wealth over several aliases.

comment Was The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus a Suicide Note?
Officially Heath Ledger's death was ruled an accident, so speculating about a 'suicide note' means speculating about his death being a suicide, which I feel is off-topic here.

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.

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 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.

comment Why and how did sherlock fake his death?
2. Sherlock faked his death so he could covertly take out Moriarty's network. - But he didn't need to actually jump to fool Moriarty's men because none of them was there to witness it. Plus, the 'Lazarus solution' only worked when viewed from the exact spot John was standing in. I'd say it appears as if the actual 'fall' was designed to fool John alone.
