comment How did she deteriorate?
Did you miss the scene with the doctor explaining this? She used relatively common terms to describe the situation.

comment Does Marvel have full filming rights for all characters in Avengers Multiverse?
@Liath The question is more, why would Marvel promote a competitor's movies?

comment Was Erica Albright real?
@Paulster2 It may be worth adding that the Livejournal posts Mark makes in the film are real. During the film's commentary, they say that they had the benefit of having access to the original blog posts. See also: slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/hot_document/features/2007/…

@TylerShads Back when it first aired, there was plenty of commentary of her odd speech on the internet.

comment Eloise Hawking's connection to MIB and the loophole
@Oliver_C Yes, in theory the Others followed Jacob. But we see Linus get manipulated by the MIB, which opens up the possibility of previous leaders of the Others being similarly misled.

comment Eloise Hawking's connection to MIB and the loophole
@Kristian Because the scheme involving Desmond was in motion. Ensuring that the MIB believed his scheme was still going according to plan was important so then Hawking and Widmore could then attack MIB and take him by surprise.

comment Eloise Hawking's connection to MIB and the loophole
@Oliver_C That's why I had the parenthetical about Linus at the start. We know that Linus had been manipulated by the MIB, but we don't know about Widmore's or Hawking's reigns as the leader of the Others and if they were also being controlled by the MIB instead of Jacob.

comment Why did Maester Luwin want Bran & Rickeon to be taken to the wall in S02E10 of GoT
You might want to add why it's safe to to to the Wall. That Jon and the Nightswatch would protect them.

comment Was the family connection established in The Empire Strikes Back?
That IMDB page is just an unsourced wiki. It would be better to link to something that is either a primary source, or at least cites its source.

comment Is there really a bugle trophy in Man of Steel?
That linked page doesn't really 'confirm' anything. It's an un-sourced wiki. Anyone can put anything up there.

comment Why is Sansa Stark so important?
@AdeleC From the Lannisters' point of view, Robb is alive only until he inevitably loses the war, and is killed as a traitor.

That mind scanning happened on the ship, I think.

comment How can Penny afford a one bedroom apartment on a waitress salary?
In retrospect, I'm not sure there's any point to our comments. The answer was simply lifted from the link, so it's not like we're commenting to the person who wrote it.

comment How can Penny afford a one bedroom apartment on a waitress salary?
I am not familiar with California's labor laws, but usually the minimum wage at restaurants is a bit more complex. The restaurant will pay less than the minimum wage (in this case $8), and it's expected the waiter/waitress will earn enough to make up the differential so they earn more than minimum wage over the course of their shift. If this doesn't happen, then the restaurant needs to pay them enough so they earned minimum wage. So you can't calculate the income from tips, then just add on minimum wage.

comment In Star Trek Into Darkness who was the saboteur?
@Liath FWIW, I try to revisit my answers on stuff like this once Blu-rays are released. Maybe there'll be a deleted scene, or something in a commentary that will address this.
