comment How many people are there onboard the train in Snowpiercer (2013)?
how is 18 people supposed to be 26%? We are not told how much this sparing of 18 affected the % killed, but it is implied to be inconsequential. So therefore, those 18 people are likely less than 1%.

comment How many people are there onboard the train in Snowpiercer (2013)?
You are right, but I think we can make some very good educated guesses. Considering that the entire film is based on class systems, I have to assume that it is a pyramidal class system. That the vast majority of the population is in the bottom class. Which would imply that the total is likely somewhere in the 1000-1500 range, maybe a few hundred more at absolute most.

comment Why do so many movies still use the Wilhelm scream?
Is it used that often? The Wikipedia article only says it has been used in over 22x shows/films. Which is like .00001% of movies/shows since its inception. There are probably more general sounds that have been used millions of times, it is just no one has kept track. This sound is just so well known because it is so ridiculous. Any sound included in some general sound package for film and TV probably has an equally long or longer record.

comment Is this mask really possible?
I have seen some very good elderly people masks in particular, I think it is just far easier to fake winkely dieing skin than it is to fake plump healthy skin.

comment Is it really possible to produce 99.9% crystal meth?
@DangerZone No at that point you could almost certainly never guarantee that the larger batch did not get a few molecules of impurity mixed in it. And I would not look at it that way. Bigger batches are likely easier to get better purity, but the trick comes at the difference between 99.99999% pure and 100% pure. At 100% pure you absolutely cannot use standard methods, you need to work with individual molecules, where it becomes impractical to deal with large volumes..

Completely pure is a concept that is not ever really achievable. Arbitrarily close to completely pure is theoretically achievable. I guess, technicality if you kept the batch to a couple hundred or thousand molecules, maybe you could guarantee that every single one was C10H15N.... Maybe.

comment How could the murder weapon in The Sign of Three possibly work?
You must not have been hurt very often. The only thing unrealistic in this scene is how bad Sherlock is at deduction.

comment Why did Gazelle not die when Merlin detonates the security chips?
Is what explained? Everyone without the device was in grave danger because it was the only thing that could protect them from the phones.

comment Why did Gazelle not die when Merlin detonates the security chips?
Because the device was necessary in everyone he did not want dead. He put one in himself, any every other person in on it. Give me a reason why we should assume she did not have you?

comment Did Arya really see that the Thin Man was a wrongdoer?
I think in a way they could be described as vigilantes. They are not in it for the money. I think they are probably as likely to take a hit from a beggar as they are from a lord. And they certainly seem to strive for a certain balance and an esoteric fairness only they themselves understand.

comment Why did Gazelle not die when Merlin detonates the security chips?
Because that is beside the point. They all had a device implanted, even Valentine had one. The answer picked is the only ones that explains why they alone did not explode.

That might be the case, but it can be inferred very reliably that she had a scar as well. They all needed the device implanted, even the mastermind.

comment What is the inspiration for Trial by Combat?
So I do not know how anyone could interpret law the way you have, its history, starting point, and reason for being is fairly well documented. And even if the law did come into being to protect the intelligent, exactly why would we want it to be biased and unfair towards those born with less intelligence? What is illogical with equality under the law?
