comment How is the age of man different from the people living on earth when he travels to another planet?
@MikeEdenfield - understood, and I wouldn't have migrated it without a discussion with the mods of the destination site as to whether it would benefit their content. My main point to ask the OP is interested in a movie, physics or religious answer. Since the movie is deliberately illustrating a physical phenomena, I would say an answer describing the physics is on topic. A discussion about the unnamed religion's view of time-dilation is not.

comment How is the age of man different from the people living on earth when he travels to another planet?
I think there may be a good case for migrating this to a site where it could be answered by an expert in religious belief. I don't want to assume that islam.se is the right place for this - so could you either confirm that this would be an appropriate place, or elaborate why 'movie experts' would be the best people to answer this for you?

comment How is the age of man different from the people living on earth when he travels to another planet?
Is there some reason you've asked this question here? We are 'movie experts' not really able to to provide anything other than analysis as to the content of the movie, and perhaps to its accuracy with respect to well understood physics. The philosophical or theological basis of the physics is somewhat out of scope.

comment Is it really possible to produce 99.9% crystal meth?
I recall hearing the show's chemistry consultant speaking on NPR. She said that the chemistry that is described in the show is deliberately non plausible / not fully described - for obvious reasons. Its set up in such a way that in the right 'area' of chemistry, but couldn't be replicated by someone in the real world.

comment Thought process of Sons of the Harpy
This could be rephrased to be a proper answer. There's no reason why you cannot repeat similar answers to the other points and make your own enchancements. Otherwise this will likely be converted to a comment!

comment What did Jack Sparrow mean when he said “Clearly you've never been to Singapore”
Err, which particular implication do you not agree with, there are several unrelated suggestions.

comment Why did Jose give Cole the gun?
Just a suggestion then Don, breaking the post into paragraphs makes it easier to read .... I've edited to make your conclusion more obvious, if you want to edit it back then fine, but I encourage you to actually break the post up a bit more.

comment West Wing reasoning behind mocking people who say “there but for the grace of God go I?”
IMHO they are not mocking people that say that phrase. Its just a slightly 'clever' way of saying the phrase themselves.

comment What's so great about House Tully?
@DavidMulder - good point, since the question is mostly about House Tully and not the spoiler minefield that is the subject of Rob's promise to Walder Frey it might be best left in spoiler markup for others.

comment Did Aegon have an army?
I don't think the details have been mention yet in the TV show - but the wiki page mentions a small army awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/War_of_Conquest

comment Looking for movie based in early 20th century
There is nothing wrong with answering your own question, especially as you left it for Olicer_C to make an answer, and credit him.

comment Early '90s horror/thriller movie/tv show - guy's head and arm trapped by closing electric car window
I chose the more memorable scene for the title. Please edit if you can improve, but its useful to have something from the movie to jog memories.

comment Wolverine in the river at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past
@Catija - but then goes on to say there are stories where he survives extended periods underwater. Unfortunately superhero powers are a flexible device used by the writers. I was trying to illustrate that its not unprecedented to have him survive being trapped underwater.

comment Wolverine in the river at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past
I missed the fact that he'd been in the river a very extended period of time. How is this shown?

comment What is the computer that Benny Hill hacks in the Italian job? (1969)
Mmm - those tape drives look quite different. It might be impossible to answer this, it might just be a random collection of 60' era computer gear.

comment Why did Merlin give Lancelot the edge-of-space mission?
Yeah - this is absolutely the reason, he's meant to be impersonating Arthur / Chester King.

comment An old funny heist movie
Please ask two questions separately. The second one by the way is "The Italian Job" (1969).

comment What are the differences between the US and UK cuts of the church scene in Kingsman: The Secret Service?
@KellyBaker - To be fair on the movie this seems to be a criticism of the Canadian movie ratings system which gives it a 13A or 14A depending on the province - a somewhat lenient rating when compared to elsewhere. It is an R in the US, and a 15 in the UK (which is a mandatory 15, not something that can be waived by an accompanying adult). I was fairly shocked to see a child of (approximately) 8 or 9 in our showing, but I don't think we should be watering down a movie just because the rating system is weak or ignored.

comment Language of the Moria password in The Fellowship of the Ring
@Mithoron - I've approved your edit, but that is in direct contradiction to the suggestion of TRiG in the comment above.
