Q: How can Force abilities be strictly light side or dark side?

Ryan_LIt seems to me that force abilities like force lightning or force jump or any of the others are just tools. How can they be innately good or evil? What if you use force lightning for a good cause, or you use battle meditation in support of an evil cause?

Q: Serenity: "Which, she would be sleepy" -- why this line?

releseabeI have never understood this line. Why did Mr. Universe say this? Is it just some goofy thing or does he mean, perhaps, that after the huge fight, she would be tired?

Doug KerrA platoon of modern soldiers, after an unusual meteorological event, find themselves in the center of a civil war battle, still holding their modern weapons. The meat of the story was their ethical question, should they intervene?

Q: What is the meaning of this picture?

AdamantIn the song sequence at the beginning of Steven Universe Future we see this picture: What is it? It definitely isn't composed of scenes from the four episodes in the set. Is it a sort of montage of villains from the past episodes? The presence of Jasper and Aquamarine might suggest that, as do...

Q: Do my eyes decieve me, or is this the basis for the train station in Paradiso (from Bayonetta)?

Agi HammerthiefToday I came across an image of the train station in Antwerp, Belgium (below). I then looked for a zoomed-out photo. Both very strongly remind me of the one in Paradiso visited by Bayonetta. Is there any evidence (developer comments/credits) that the one in the game is inspired by a real-world tr...

@Marvin added .
@Marvin looks like any old European major train station.
St. Pancras, Gare du Nord, Waterloo... just pick one. Although I do wonder if any one station was used as the inspiration.

I was about to say the similarity is extremely striking, but then I realized the first and second image both show the real station. ;-)

Q: What are the earliest instances of a virus causing large-scale mutations?

user124141The Resident Evil series of movies and video games regularly features grotesque monsters created from the exposure of humans and animals to the T-virus/G-virus/C-virus. Obviously the way this is portrayed is unrealistic, with a mad scientist injecting themselves with a vial and immediately turn...

Q: Trying to remember a book I read as a kid

JohnI am looking for a book about an alien that lives inside a man. It heals him when need be. Takes place on a pacific island. It is a sequel to a book of when the alien crashed on this planet. The alien is a cop chasing a fugitive. This would be an old book.

Q: Story ID: plugging vacuum leak with one's butt

eac2222I'm certain this story was no later than 1980, and written in the 1950s-60s is probably much more like it. I'm pretty sure I read it in a collection rather than a magazine, but of course that could have been a reprint. English language. Our protagonist and two or so friends are touring some sort...

Q: Would it be possible to create energy whips like that seen in Iron Man 2?

Tyler MessingerAfter watching Iron Man 2 over again I came to a realization at how awful the movie is but also how cool Whiplashes weapon is. I was wondering what kind of engineering would be needed to create a similar weapon capable of cutting through most object.

Q: Was Wilkins the vampire in "Trick 'R Treat"?

FuzzyBootsThe TV Tropes page for the 2007 film, Trick 'R Treat repeatedly, (and rather insistently), states that the murderous fake vampire offed by werewolves is Mr. Wilkins, a character earlier introduced as a serial killer. Is there any evidence that they are, indeed, the same character? It has, admitte...

Q: Abydos: Dialing sequence done before?

StargateMaster137Hold on, so Daniel found the seventh glyph, right? So, why did they do chevron 1-6 like they already tried before. I saw that they knew what they were doing so, umm, why is the seventh chevron a mystery? Did they dial Abydos with all of the glyphs and succeeded or Daniel just told them the way to...

 
11:34 PM
@TheLethalCarrot There's an old joke about a club where they've told the same old jokes so many times that people just specify the number of the joke they'd like to tell, everybody gets it and the audience laughs. I thought perhaps you'd reached that point with chat. :)
 
11:54 PM
I have the bronze story-id tag badge, but just barely. And I think tag badges can be taken away. I'll have to read through more old story-id questions and find one that I can accidentally answer.
@DavidW Yeah, that's a joke with at least two endings.
