Q: What’s the deal with Ms. Lint’s eye in The Tick?

In the first few episodes it was established that one of her eyes is made of glass - one popped out while fighting The Tick and she replaced it with another style later. In the fourth and fifth episodes, “Party Crashers” and “Flying”, both of he...

Q: Does the name "Fawkes" make sense for a magical familiar?

SlytherincessDumbledore's familiar, Fawkes, is a very powerful magical creature. As we know, a phoenix can have an incredibly long life - we don't know if Dumbledore raised him from a new chick. It's possible that Fawkes could have been alive, say, for hundreds of years prior to coming to Dumbledore. Why woul...

Q: Can we dupe-close Story IDs when confirmation is given by what looks like the OP’s second account?

LaurelYou may have seen this: a new user asks a story-identification question, then a second (also new) account gives the answer (or confirms an existing answer, though usually this deleted and transferred to a comment). There is reason to believe that these two accounts are the same person for one or ...

Q: 90s Kids Sci-Fi Anthology Book Series

CassandrasaurusSeeking a 90s kids series, anthology, similar to Goosebumps but maybe more sci-fi. Can’t remember much, just that it was the first time I’ve heard the term “grey aliens.” I included a drawing from memory of one of the book covers.

Q: How can Necromancers live in hiding today?

SovereignSunI have this question, how could possibly Necromancers live today within our world without revealing themselves as Necromancers? Taking into consideration that they have all their accessories and their culture, structures and magic.

Q: Is this a real Star Trek episode?

user4951In the Breaking Bad episode "Blood Money", there is a reference to an episode of Star Trek in which Chekhov is killed because his stomach is in space. Is this a real episode of Star Trek?

And also, if you can, psychics assume more details so that other people might find their answer when searching. — FuzzyBoots 19 hours ago
@FuzzyBoots psychics assume?
Is that an autocomplete error or a joke I'm not getting?

Q: Book about teenagers on a spaceship, terraforming a planet

LotI read the book around 20 years ago, in german. It's not hard scifi, but a typical young adult book. I think the kids were somehow awakened (maybe genetically produced?) too early, and now have to terraform the closest planet in order to survive. I remember that they all had greek names, I think ...

Q: How long after Ahsoka leaving Jedi order did Order 66 happen?

Harley QuinnAccording to last few episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which showed Ahsoka's story arc), it seems that Order 66 happened only few days after Ahsoka left Jedi order. After leaving Jedi order, she went directly to Coruscant Underworld and crashed into mech sisters. Spent one day there maybe....

Q: Why did Rex want to kill Ahsoka after receiving Order 66?

Harley QuinnOrder 66 was clear: Execute Jedi for their treason against the Republic. This is what clones were programmed to do, but when Rex received Order 66, Ahsoka was no longer a Jedi. So, why couldn't Rex resist the temptation to kill her? From tactical point of view, Ah...

Q: Old Science Fiction anthology: man with nightmares of a giant bee; post-apocalyptic underground world

IvanI found this site today while searching for a book and hope someone can help. When I was a boy I read a hard-bound anthology of science fiction stories.

Q: What part of Voldemort got resurrected?

RighterWe know that Voldemort had a bunch of Horcruxes, plus one soul piece in his body. In Book 1, when he "died" the first time (in Godric's Hollow), the rebounding curse destroyed that one soul piece (correct me if I'm wrong). But he "lived" because his Horcruxes still had living soul pieces. Fast f...

Kale mash sounds.... no bueno.
Cooked spinach can go either way, depending on how it's done, so I'll reserve judgement on kale mash, but I have to admit that I'm skeptical.
2:23 PM
When I was a kid and we lived on the Hopi Reservation, they would often serve us steamed spinach from a can as part of our lunch (at school). You were required to eat all of your lunch before you were allowed the desert. It really turned me off to spinach for a long long time.

Q: I'm trying to remember the title of a novel I read several years ago

RachelI don't know when it was written, but my guess is somewhere between the early 2000's and the mid 2010's. I'm sure it falls into the science-fantasy genre somewhere based on what I remember about the novel. The novel is based around what I believe to be a virus or something similar which caused hu...
