Q: Did Houdini make any creative contribution to Under the Pyramids?

BuzzIt is well know that H. P. Lovecraft wrote the story "Under the Pyramids" (also known as "Imprisoned with the Pharaohs") for the world-famous magician and escape artist Harry Houdini.

Q: Is Harry Potter's real name Henry?

WallnutDid James and Lily Potter Christen Harry "Harry" or "Henry"? I don't recall him ever being referred to as Henry in either the books or the movies, but (in the UK at least) it would be odd for a boy to actually be named Harry, as it's normally an informal form of Henry. Has JK Rowling said anythin...

Q: Why don't rebels take Stormtroopers' armor?

Kaleb GoodlowAdmittedly, the armor of the stormtroopers is not the best, but it's better than nothing. Why don't the rebels strip the armor from dead stormtroopers to use with their best soldiers? I'd really like to understand why they don't do this.

Lucas DuffeckIf we think about Physics, it is a well known fact that a moving object will only have it's speed changed if another force is applied on it. This is called inertia.

Q: How does a low tech world react when leaving their world?

Connor LonerganMany Imperial Guard regiments hail from planets that lack just gunpowder. What I want to know is how do they react when they get sent away from their homeworld to anywhere in the galaxy.
