Q: Why has this Animal Farm question been reopened?

ValorumThis question about Animal Farm has just been reopened by site moderator Rand al'Thor. It was closed in 2015 as off-topic due to 'not being about science fiction or fantasy' in line with the accepted policy about Animal Farm not being on topic. Why has it been reopened?

Q: Fringe: how do seasons 1-4 affect the events in season 5?

user77341The Observers' invasion would have happened either way, right? So all the events from season 1 through 4 do not actually prevent or affect that, right?

Q: Who makes the X-uniforms?

miltonautIn the comics, who makes the uniforms for the X-men? I've seen several references to the X-men designing/choosing their own costumes, but who actually sews them? Who is the X-tailor?

Q: Old sci-fi story where the IRS sends assassins after people who don't pay their taxes?

Redshirt CrewmemberPlot Summary The setting for this one is the U.S. in the 20th century or possibly early 21st century (as imagined from a 1970s perspective). That is to say, it's modern day or near-future from a technological perspective. The protagonist (a truck driver, IIRC) has learned that someone has repo...

 
@Skooba Well...at least you can say that you witnessed a Boston Massacre. Effing pathetic ;-(
 
@steelersquirrel Words I'm saying for the first time: Go Falcons!

Yeah. We lost big.
36-9 right now. 3:42 left. Sigh.
 
It's amazing - I was a fairweather Bills fan for a few years up until 20 years ago. Barely looked at football since. Still, I hate the Patriots.
 
Yeah. I can't handle watching them in another super bowl. I am boycotting the super bowl this year ;)
 
Yeah, me too! Also, I had no plans to watch regardless.
 
In the words of Wad: I will be swan diving into a wood chipper ;)
 
To paraphrase George Carlin: I will be having my gonads laminated.

Aww, Steelers fans, I'm so sorry! I was rooting for you, and hoping the Steelers would make it to the Super Bowl. Well, foo. That sucks. :(

Q: Looking for a collection of short stories that involved math as underlying theme in every story

LukeI bought a great collection of shorts by a specific author a few years ago, lent it out, and have not seen it since. One of my favorite stories was about an alien who could only consume alcohol. Once the alien tried it, it was declared that earth had the best food in the galaxy. The alien also ex...

Q: Short story published in Asimov's in the 90's

Mimi JoyceI cannot recall the title or the author; the premise was that, in an heavily over-populated world, scientists developed a new herd animal which was easily bred, matured quickly, and 100% of the creature was edible, high in protein and low in fat. As near as I can recall, the animal had several di...
