comment Is Eisenheim's sword illusion realistic?
@vsz, Dynamo performed a walking-on-water trick on the Thames in a public area, in front of many people, yet it’s pretty obvious how he did/could have done it even though it would require quite a bit of prep and help and secret/hidden actions. ;-)

comment Why did they *kill* Mr. Hengist in “Wolf in the Fold”?
@Oliver_C, ah yes you’re right! I just checked and earlier, Kirk punched him and Bones said he’s dead, to which Jim replied “that’s impossible” (because it seems odd that he could have died from a single punch). I guess either Mr. Hengist really wasn’t a real person (just a projection) or maybe he had been weakened by the entity. I forgot he was dead because he/it was laughing when they dragged him to the transporter pad. Nice catch. Feel free to post it as an answer.

comment How did they get back in “City on the Edge of Forever”?
The Guardian returning them doesn’t make sense because even if it did so and they were standing on the street one moment then suddenly falling back through the portal, how did it know when to return them? Why didn’t it return them the moment they saw Bones, or for that matter the moment Bones stepped through and thus avoid making Kirk and Spock have to go back at all? Also, did it return them prematurely, before they had a chance to go back to the shelter and deal with all the future-tech they left lying around? Unfortunately it sounds like they really did gloss over that aspect. :-/

comment How did they get back in “City on the Edge of Forever”?
Okay, so from the perspective of the crew that stayed behind, they jumped through the hole, were automagically turned around and finished their jump out of the hole and ended up right back where they started. But from their own perspective, they jumped through a hole, landed in 1930’s Earth, then something and they landed back where they started. They kept their memories of their foray into the past, so to them, they did not seamlessly transition like they did from this end. They must have jumped through some other hole in 1930’s Earth to get back, but where/when/how did that hole manifest?

I did notice that, and it could work, if they had suddenly appeared back on the planet. However, they jumped through the portal which means that there had to be a hole in space-time for them to step through.

comment Why did Spock not know about Romulans in “Balance of Terror”?
I didn’t realize they’d split that long ago; I always had the impression it was just a few generations. I still don’t think a space-faring civilization would have purposely buried a significant part of their history, and even a couple of millennia wouldn't be enough to wipe out their memories (we have records of significant historic events going back even longer). However, considering how strongly they react to avoid discussing private things like pon farr, mind-melds, etc. (out of embarrassment? ಠ_ఠ), I suppose they could have chosen to bury their connection to the oh-so emotional Romulans.

comment How is a Targaryen immune to molten metal?
Maybe the true cause of death was asphyxiation from having his trachea filled with metal.

comment How is a Targaryen immune to molten metal?
hence the heat from the molten gold would not have killed him if he was a 'real' dragon. But drinking metal would have had no effect? So a Targaryen can drink a cup of mercury with no harmful effects? ಠ_ఠ

comment What was the “It Could Be” running joke on House MD?
@TylerShads, you’re right. I’d say that now that I know which one it was, it would be easier to look up which episode it actually was lupus, but that’s still a challenge since every almost episode mentioned it. :-/
