comment So Bane was actually helping Batman all along?
Downvoter, care to comment the reason?

comment How did the watch do what it did?
+1 - After rethinking this, I agree that this is the only part in the movie I can't yet make sense out of. He was only manipulating the gravity inside Murph's room (and I guess also only in young Murph's time). I'm not sure how the watch could then store those gravity waves. I have to recheck Thorne's book for this and hopefully he gave an answer I missed or misunderstood. (But of course the points about "vertical" are still irrelevant, they're arbitrary gravity waves afterall.)

Meh, seems rather part of the question's "what have you tried". But nevermind, will look into this later, anyway.

Wut? What happened to the question? Oh my, seems I really need to get into that linked post.

comment Is it really possible to lift an aircraft as it happened in Interstellar movie?
@CGCampbell No, it doesn't really, but in fact it already is.

What do you mean, that's exactly your question. (Or was this comment just a joke?)

comment So Bane was actually helping Batman all along?
Is there anything more to summarize from that post to provide context for the question (or is everything relevant already in the question)? Also, what is your actual question then, you might want to point that out more in the text. But anyway, (potentially) interesting theory, even if I'm probably not going to buy it.

comment Serial killer uses parts of victims' bodies to construct the Vitruvian Man
@Stephan That doesn't stop you from awarding your bounty to the answer that you like most, though. But I agree that it brings Walt into a difficult situation, keep an obviously wrong answer around to sack the bounty or not?

comment Why did it take a rocket to lift off the Earth but just shuttles to lift off the other planets?
@Cool_Coder That indeed sounds reasonable (even though I'm by far no expert in physics and already had a hard, but fun, time getting that escape velocity together). But anyway, I already deem that escape velocity consideration not too relevant for this question. But still thanks for the added information, in fact given that we know to some degree how Mann's atmosphere looks, one might be able to reason about its ADR a bit more.

@rusk Just that they (the Landers) were already up in space. Coop and the others were riding a Ranger from earth to the Endurance. So bad planning, maybe? But honestly, in this case I think you can still take the fuel conservation argument. It is not entirely explained and I guess all the possible explanations might work to some degree, even if not one alone for every possible side question one might have.

comment Was Gargantua not a “real” Black Hole?
Note, that the Paint drawing isn't entirely correct, Cooper and TARS would actually have to move along the right or left side, because that's their space dimension they can experience (but afterall, they would have to look 1-dimensional either in the drawing), so take that really just as a rough sketch.

comment Animated series Named Bob Mauren?
Oh my, loved that, the French knew how to do entertaining and gripping action cartoons (reminds me of Chris Colorado, another amazing series). But yeah, that picture by far doesn't do the actual animation any justice.

comment Why does time flow differently on Miller's planet?
Seems fine now.

comment Why does the score not match the movie's atmosphere?
I'd long had this question on my radar but never found the time nor mood to flesh out a proper answer. But definitely couldn't have made it better, well done and thanks for finally answering it. +1

Don't forget to accept the answer if it the correct solution to your problem.

comment Reason behind the feud between WWE's “Wyatt” family members
@AndrewMartin Haha, I'd wonder what the Sports guys say when you ask them about family feuds in some pseudosports reality TV show. As much as I'd personally like to get rid of it, it seems much more on-topic here (and we had other WWE questions before, even if I currently don't know about what topics in particular). But thanks for the meta discussion (even if it will largely stay unnoticed ;-)).

comment Why did it take a rocket to lift off the Earth but just shuttles to lift off the other planets?
@AndrewMartin If you undelete your answer and incorporate the results from your Physics question into it (which indeed support your assumption that lift-off is easier), I'd freely undownvote it and remove those remarks from my answer (since, while interesting, I'd still deem them irrelevant for my answer anyway). Afterall it's your Physics question and it shouldn't have been for nothing, you were right about lift-off being easier, just not about its exact relation to planetary density.

So, now the same for Mann's planet. ;-)

comment Why did it take a rocket to lift off the Earth but just shuttles to lift off the other planets?
@AndrewMartin Sure, that's why I said in conjunction with the other answers...But ok, rephrased it.

comment On whose side is the barkeeper?
I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I finally took the time to recheck this scene carefully and it seems to me that the bartender shoots Stiglitz and is then shot by Wicki, which would make him at least opposed to the Basterds even if it's still unclear if he's allied to the Nazis. I'll still keep this upvoted as it is a reasonable and interesting rundown nevertheless.
