Q: Book about a live reality tv show where money depends on viewers but they were really harvesting dreams

Deep Thought42There's a book I checked out of the library a while back and I'd like to get my sister to read it but I don't remember what it's called. I actually don't remember if you got money or not but I know the amount of viewers you had was important. There was a teenage girl from a poor city in Arizona I...

Q: What's the deal with Bilbo being some kind of "burglar"?

ThorinI may only be 37 pages into "The Hobbit", re-reading it after 20+ years, but several things already confuse me. First of all, and this is what I'm mainly asking about, Bilbo is casually mentioned as some kind of skilled burglar/thief. And the hobbit doesn't seem to object to this at all. The narr...

Q: Isn't it weird that no one in the wizarding world, especially the muggle borns ponder about muggle sciences?

AnonymousI did search this before asking the question but there are no satisfactory answers. Thing is everyone has got this mutual understanding that muggle and wizard universes are different and there is no point in discussing physics in magic. But thinking of all the highly intelligent muggle borns like...

Umbrella CorporationIn the end of last episode S03E02 of Star Trek: Discovery, Why did she do that given the only reason USS Discovery was brought to the future because USS Discovery couldn't be destroyed thanks to Sphere data which was merged with it?

Q: Why isn't Star Trek: Discovery produced in 4K?

Umbrella CorporationStar Trek: Discovery is a modern TV show and yet it's produced in 2K HDR. Yes, HDR makes it beautiful, but I don't find it as detailed as 4K videos. Why isn't Star Trek: Discovery produced in 4K HDR?

Q: Origin of "Shaz" as an explicative in SF&F

FuzzyBootsI was recently reading a book set in a near future where a character was using "Shaz" as a general explicative and it stuck me that not only did it seem like I'd seen it in several works and that I had a vague feeling it originated with a show or book the way that "feel" migrated outside of Farsc...

Q: How is faster-than-light communication achieved in Away?

Jörg W MittagMost of the technology in Away is just a small extrapolation of today's technology. For example, they are still using chemical rockets instead of e.g. nuclear ones. They still use bulky uncomfortable hard-shell space suits instead of mechanical counter pressure suits. In the pilot, it is mentione...

Q: Does Dumbledore Intentionally Put Harry In Danger In The Philospher´s Stone? If So, Why Would He?

Sister StudentI've noticed that Dumbledore seems to have some correlation with many of Harry's perils. Probably the most obvious example would be in The Philosopher's Stone. It really started at the very beginning, when Hagrid went to pick up the Stone with Harry. Dumbledore is a smart man, he knows that Hagri...

Q: Why Is Hogwarts Descrimatory Towards Squibs When There Are Answers?

MoonieHogwarts seems to pat themselves on the back for being a diverse place. With Muggleborns, Half-Bloods, and Pure-bloods, you'd think that Hogwarts is a decent place. Every child that is aware of the wizarding world is given equal opportunities to go to the best wizarding school in history. However...

Q: Horror movie (or at least has horror elements), indie filmmakers sneak into rich man's mansion haunted by said rich man

Nu'DaqI would say this came out in the mid-late 80's timeframe. The heroes (or at least protagonists, might be a stretch to call them heroic) are a small group (no more than three of them, IIRC) of independent filmmakers who hear the story of a ghost of a rich man who haunts his mansion and possessivel...

Q: Is the "rope-based fashion" a fictional element?

O. R. MapperOn the show 3%, we see various characters wear clothes that seem to be adorned with a network of ropes. I noticed this only during the last couple of episodes, but it may have been around for a longer time within the series. Some examples are visible in the final sequence of the series. In the li...
