comment Why is the ring of debris (accretion disk) surrounding Gargantua shaped the way it is?
Note that a translucent bubble will often appear to be a ring to an observer.

comment Do characters no longer get tired in the 24 universe?
Crystal meth, amphetamines or cocaine provide the ability to stay awake and active for long periods. For those not interested in under the counter products, there is always No Doze or a really strong cup of coffee. Another possibility is that the character might be manic/depressive in a manic phase.

comment In Donnie Brasco, Lefty said: “You're still driving a fucking Lincoln when you get there.” What's that mean?
Haven't seen the movie, but on the face of it, I'd suspect whoever said that felt that a Limo beats a Lincoln any way you look at it.

comment When the narrator meets Bob again after seeing Marla, how come Bob doesn't recognize him?
I presumed the Narrator had delegated hosting some of the meets to the more enthusiastic and dedicated fight clubbers. Just like they (the Narrator and 'Tyler Durden') had delegated testing of new recruits to the ..other club they were running (can't recall - did it have a name?). There was no relaxing of principles in that. If anything, they were more severe.

I think it's all produced by the CGI (cruel, gruesome inebriate). ;)

comment The African Queen (1951) - did Charlie and Rosie have sex?
This seems dangerously close to opinion based. (But IMO they ****ed like bunnies.)
