Q: Science fiction story where humanity is so technically advanced that they lack for nothing

chasly from UKMany years ago I read a story (I think it was a full-length novel) set in the far future of Earth where people effectively can have whatever they want whenever they want it. I also believe they had immortality. Their main problems were decadence and ennui. I seem to remember that this was all ava...

^ Wow, the description of this story-id question is so generic that it must match multiple novels. How did cryptarch guess the right one?
scifi.stackexchange.com/q/198705/4918 "Book about an asteroid passing really close to Earth and how the people thought they were going to die, so they made the last day on Earth party" This one also sort of seems generic.

Q: What context is necessary to enjoy Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald?

ThePopMachineI'm not a Harry Potter fan and have seen the first three or four movies incidentally over the last fifteen-odd years. I haven't read the books and haven't seen Fantastic Beasts. What do I need to know to understand and (hopefully) enjoy Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald?

user35971I'm not talking about Mordor. I'm talking about the continent between Middle-Earth and the Lands of the Sun. This continent existed throughout the Ages of Arda, until it seems to have vanished after the Downfall of Numenor.

Q: Do Snape and Narcissa have scars from the Unbreakable Vow?

Shana TarIn Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald we see a character with scars from an unbreakable vow. As I personally consider Fantastic beasts to be canon, I was really puzzled - does an Unbreakable vow always leave visible marks? Snape and Narcissa apparently didn't get those as that would be p...

Neo DarwinCoS Ch.13 In my fifth year, the Chamber was opened and the monster attacked several students, finally killing one If there were witnesses to the attacks, then how come Hagrid was expelled?

Alex DownsAs per this question I did a while back, The Fairy Godmother and Doris, I learned that the Fairy Godmother (Dama Fortuna) had turned Doris from a man to an ugly woman. What was her name prior to taking the potion?

Q: In Humans, what are the hybrids?

Wooden13At the end of Humans, they discuss a new human-synth hybrid, but I don't really understand how it works. The season finale discussed the blood getting mixed, but that should have killed Leo. Also, why isn't Leo the first hybrid? They say that he and Mattie's child will be the first, but I thought...

@Jenayah Agreed
But I don't see that option for flagging
@RDFozz You can only flag as very low quality under specific conditions.
