Q: In which Looney Tunes sketch does Yosemite Sam jump off of something while firing both guns?

Peter SchillingI remember fondly watching the original Looney Tunes on VHS as a kid in the late 90s and early 2000s. One scene in particular sticks in my mind, but I've come up empty so far on identifying it. What I recall is our main characters engaged in some kind of competition with judges, and I am nearly c...

Q: A little doubt on what Kira said to Vedek Bareil

BentoE2, S2. You get: BAREIL: It's not important. I was just wondering if I was part of yours. KIRA: No. No, you weren't. I'm wondering why Kira denies, considering that in a previous scene she clearly met him in her vision. The only idea that pops into my head is for modesty, reserve, shyness, disc...

Q: What does it mean for a question to lack focus?

C.KocaI asked this question as I was curious if elves were still procreating. The question was simple and obvious, it basically asked birth rates of elves near the destruction of the ring. I did my research, found two relevant questions and included in my question. I read Silmarillion, Hobbit, LotR but...

Q: Poem about a joker with disorganized attire

ShivCKI remember from my childhood a English poem about a joker with disorganized attire. He has worn a cooking pan as hat, (probably) socks as gloves and he's travelling in a train and leaves his station behind. I guess, This poem must be at least 15-20 (or more) years old. Please tell me name of the ...

Q: Is "Hiding Among Zombies" an idea from Walking Dead or has this existed earlier?

ShadeIn the TV series The Walking Dead, I've for the first time seen the idea of hiding in hordes of Zombies using some of their traits. In The Walking Dead, there are currently two ways to do this: Wear clothes full of Walker blood / innards to have the apparently very distinct smell of Zombies. We ...

Q: Did the non-military Star Wars space ships have shields?

VienLaA while ago I have read that in the new canon TIE Fighters do have life support and their pilots wear space suits to ensure survival in the case of a quite likely damage and resulting decompression. I'm not sure how true is that, but I have also recently learned of a TIE Fighter modified starship "...

Q: How did Thanos and the Black Order know where the time and mind stone where so precisely?

Enrique Moreno TentDuring Infinity War, Thanos seeks the infinity stones. How did he know where to find them?

Space stone: He kinda "s...

Q: How was Hogwarts' house point reward system fair and why didn't MoM intervene?

Umbrella CorporationIn the first year, Slytherin had literally won.. by large margin. And then, Dumbledore went ahead to award Gryffindor enough points based on a classified event so that it could win. How in the name of sanity is this fair?

@Null scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/a/13148/1148 I specifically put in this quarter's question that if people wanted to say things they consumed during the pandemic (movies, shows, books, whatevs) they could mention them.
So we can probably undelete that person's response.

IMHO a tag is unnecessary, fluff, etc the usual "useless tag criteria". I'm asking for input before I cede to the tag-removal itch.
Same with BTW.
Why do you hate Batman do much?
@Jenayah Yeah, I'd agree with that.
@JackBNimble I don't
I do, however, see no value in cataloguing every instance of the Batcomputer with it's comic source but that's another matter.
I suppose we could go the other way, and create all the required bat-* tags; , , , , etc.

Q: Story about two men walking through the forest

simon_smileyThis is a story (fable) that I remember reading or hearing when I was young (UK, probably between 2000-2010). It felt more like a fable than a story written then. The part I remember is of two men who were going for a long journey. This journey would take them through a large forest and based on ...

Q: Story about two men walking through the forest

simon_smileyThis is a story (fable) that I remember reading or hearing when I was young (UK, probably between 2000-2010). It felt more like an older fable than a story written then in the 2000s.

@Null I agree; I guess I skimmed the question and missed the last bit. It does seem like not the best fit, though; perhaps a separate question would be easier to manage?
That was just something I threw in, thinking maybe it would open the door for a little more participation (which it didn't really). It will not be a recurring thing.
@DavidW Yeah, that's what I was thinking. It's sort of related but really different enough to be its own question.
I guess in a way it doesn't matter, since I can see the deleted content anyways.

I look away for a few minutes/hours and people start using chat for chat?!
@Null @Jack I pinned it thinking you wanted to advertise that fact up in chat, not tell Null about something, let me know if I want it unpinned?
FWIW the Pandemic Suggestions seems to be a great way to get less enfranchised posters involved (based on some of the rep of the posters)

@AncientSwordRage Kids these days.
Umm. it is too late.
@AncientSwordRage You can unpin it.

Q: What's the canonicity of Star Trek: Lower Decks?

ThePopMachineHow is it intended that the audience interpret the canonicity of Star Trek: Lower Decks? It seems quite clear that this series is intended to be humorous and makes reference to events of the other series. However, I assume that events in this series are very unlikely ever to be considered histo...
