No sorry, I'll have more time in the weekend.

This might give more insight in freeway statistics but I have no idea where to look: fhwa.dot.gov/policyinformation/statistics/2012

"First in Freeways" could mean where the first freeways were constructed, according to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_Highway_System that could be Missouri, Kansas or Pennsylvania. In terms of amount of freeways it could be New York (31 interstate freeways) or California (most miles of freeway) but both sources are unreliable and I can't find any better (wiki.answers.com/Q/…, ask.com/question/…)

I'm not a US citizen so most of these go straight past me, but I found this one: strangemaps.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/popvssodamap.gif. Looks like "Where soda meets pop" is most likely New York, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Illinois.

I went on a hunt and found The Code Book (wasn't sure if I still had it), and I just got The Simpsons and their Mathematical Secrets for early Christmas, so I'll do some homework this weekend.

I tried running a few of the codes through rot47.net/base.html but to no avail. I tried converting them from different bases (36 and up) to binary, and then running that through a binary -> ascii converter. Nothing would even parse as the binary wasn't divisible by 8. This probably confirms my suspicion that these are not simply text to base x encrypted codes.

We might have to call in help from crypto.stackexchange.com by the way.

comment What happens in a Rocky Horror Picture Show showing and why?
Hmm, maybe this is what I did wrong then. I watched it at home, and completely hated it. Don't really see myself enjoying a 'proper' viewing either though, but to each his own I guess :P.

comment What weighs toward the decision to ignore the gravity change?
I think you have a good point though. Why wasn't anything at all shown from the rest of the world, where pandemic surely has broken out? The story is about how two very different yet closely related people deal with a disaster. The entire first part even exists (imo) to justify the second part: to create a contrast between the sisters' personalities. It's not a movie about global pandemic and disaster. It's a movie about the human psyche, and especially that of a depressive.

comment Why does Harry only make use of time travel in The Prisoner of Azkaban?
That last bit of course is very true, from the storytelling-perspective. It ruined (to me) lots of movies, tv series and books. But it doesn't explain it from a point of view inside the Potterverse.

You raise an interesting point. If they are so rare and can not be reproduced, why would Dumbledore give such a thing to Hermione just for taking more classes? There would be so much more useful things to do. Then again, as Dumbledore said, his greatest wish was a pair of warm socks. He of all people would know the danger of using very powerful things to do something you think is good. Instead of wishing for more power to make the world better, and instead of using the Time Turner to destroy Voldie, he used it for 'good' on a smaller scale.

comment Was Mr. Orange switching guns between scenes the first indication of a character shift?
I'm sorry, but you might have to add a little more information to the question in the future. I had to look for the tag to see what movie you were talking about, and even though it's my #2 film it took me a while to realize who Freddy is. The entire world knows him as Mr. Orange, you know that right?
