A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

comment Naming convention of movie titles
This is nothing specifically to do with films. This is just how titles work in English (as Derrick's answer makes clear).

@ChristianRau. Aragorn is descended from Luthian, daughter of Thingol of Dorian and Melian the Maia.

Well, Aragorn had not only the blood of Westernesse, but also that of elves and Maia. The royal blood is a special case, even among Numenorians.

comment What is the average life expectancy of Middle-Earth inhabitants?
For a start, orcs and goblins are the same. For a second, there's nowhere near enough information in the films to answer this question: you'll need to look to the books (start with the Doom of Man). (Lord of the Rings Appendix B might be particularly useful. It's the Tale of Years.)

comment Why did the dwarves sing the song?
Well, @ChristianRau, I'd actually be inclined to get rid of the image, but I suppose it does look nice. I'll leave that decision up to the ShaliNephilim or another local.

comment Existence of Sauron in The Hobbit
In the book, the identity of the Necromancer was already known at this point (Gandalf discovered it by himself years previously, on the occasion when he acquired the map and key from the dying Thrain). I have no idea why they changed that for the film.

revised How did Gimli know Elvish?
Improved formatting (there's no need for single words to go into blockquote tags, and the question reads more fluently without them). Some grammar fixes. Replaced redirect URL with direct.
