I updated my question with what I think is a more accurate color
Q: In Star Wars Rebels why does Ashoka and Darth Vader's lightsabers turn green?

Just a guyNow in one of the episodes of Star Wars Rebels we find Ahsoka Tano fighting Darth Vader however when their lightsabers touch each other they turn green. Now here is a theory that it turns green because of the fact that because they were both Jedi but I would like to hear one from you guys

Q: In the Avengers universe, which male "good guys" have ever hit a female villian?

Rebecca J. StonesBy memory, I don't recall many instances where a male "good guy" hits a female "bad guy" throughout the Avengers universe. It's possible this is because the MCU villians have been mostly men. In fact, in Avengers: Infinity War, in Wakanda the women seem to go off and have their own little sub-bat...

Q: Help me find the name of a zombie movie/show I rented

Q: What story has the narrator include the word 'data' in his thoughts to get the computer to answer?

mforI read this in the 1970's. The story works like this: "I was talking to Smith about the strike data 12th March to 14th April and the role of data John Tobin in the uprising that followed." The whole narration has the word 'data' interspersed and you come to realise that the narrator is h...

I will add please 5 times for better effects

@Jenayah Page not found
Feeling like you feel in movies :p
I was sure you were over nine ten thousand here too
Blame HP, SW , ST, DW and ID
ID's cool
It's too much filtering to get what I can answer here
@Jenayah I don't read books/novels
scifi.stackexchange.com/q/204583/4918 "Vocational training to be a thief?" needs a Pratchett fan to guess if this may be a Discworld book

@b_jonas wait let me shout I DON'T READ BOOKS/NOVELS

Q: Kids movie came out in 90s with wrist watch set alarm for wrestling show but by end is used in another time period

Christopher DavisonI have been trying to find the title of this kid's movie involving these 2 scenes and the best description from what I can remember. Each of the scenes are connected by the use of the watch but in two different time periods in 1980s/1990s and then in the past. First it’s two best friends who bot...

Q: Restaurant serves everything with money back guarantee, patron defeats them by ordering a Twinkie

b_jonasI'd like to find a short short story, probably only one page long. I've read it on the internet in English less than two years ago, probably around 2018-08-04 when I was binging short short stories. The story tells that there's a very expensive restaurant where you have to put reservations mont...

let's look at that
holy fox that sounds familiar for some reason
@Jenayah Perhaps because it's recent.
Or because I read it by starting from some link from Lit SE and finding more nice short stories on the internet.
12:32 PM
Yeah I dunno that sounds familiar but I don't read short stories
Or not that much
It ay be something I heard
@Marvin I'm convinced this is the same OP as:
Q: Kids movie. Two friends set their wrist watches / alarms to remember to watch a TV show. One goes into the past and uses his watch battery to get help

ChrisI been trying to find the title of the movie involving these 2 scenes and the best description from what I can remember. I can’t think who the 2 kids I think both are male and have a watch alarm set to watch a specific tv show. But I am thinking pretty sure came out in the 90s and had to do with...

Am I correct in thinking Kids movie. Two friends set their wrist watches / alarms to remember to watch a TV show. One goes into the past and uses his watch battery to get help was your question? If so, please don't repost the same question; if you've lost your credentials, you can merge both accounts by following these instructions. If I'm wrong, please tell me - and sorry! — Jenayah 1 min ago
In the meantime, what do we do? Dupe?
@Mithrandir can probably add
@Mithrandir wow
Should really keep like an editable list somewhere instead of relying on a chat message

@Mithrandir meta?
I made an edit to a question because it has emoji
I don't think emoji should be allowed
link to suggested edit?
Ban emojis
Q: Can/should emojis be disabled across SE?

James JenkinsToday I found my first ever (to the best of memory) emoji in a post. Source Having no idea this was even possible I came here looking for some history. I found there is an emoji tag. There seems to be consensus that they add little to no value on SE per Do we want emojis in posts? & Support...

They give reason that emoji banning will cause problem in code
12:46 PM
yeah, so better to edit them out rather than banning
@SmokeDetector by the way that's gonoe now (cc @Mithrandir)
@Mithrandir soemthing like this:

@CuteBaby Because I am insopired from Ducky Momo

Phineas and Ferb is quite good and Mith asked me for a question from the show
Q: What is the inspiration for Ducky Momo?

Ankit SharmaAfter going through the question about Mr.Slushy Burger and “Hey Ferb” song? from Phineas and Ferb I realized the show is full of so many out of universe references. And one of the major recurring part of the show was Ducky Momo: Does Ducky Momo have any inspiration from out of universe existi...

OgedayI can't remember if this is from a book, a movie, an anime or a game. After the humans defeat an alien attack, they realize that it was too weak. They then understand that the aliens attacked in this way in order to learn the strength of humanity's firepower and the speed of its reaction. I'm no...

Q: Were there any female Death Eaters other than Bellatrix and Alecto Carrow in the books?

BellatrixObviously, women can become Death Eaters. Bellatrix was the Dark Lord's most loyal Death Eater, and she was a woman. Although she had a much lesser role and importance, Alecto Carrow was another female Death Eater. But were they the only two women in the Death Eaters mentioned in the seven books?...

Q: Trying to find a particular litrpg story

Kobin BinghamI'm trying to find a story I read a while ago. As far as I can remember, it was a litrpg ebook based in a world where increasing levels actually took you to a new section of the world. The main character had reached level 100 (i believe) and found a ring that began removing his levels, slowly s...

Is that really true?

Q: In Order of the Phoenix, why doesn't Harry just use a pensieve to prove Voldemort had returned?

TheMagicalMuffinManAt the beginning of Order of the Phoenix, when nobody believes Harry that Voldemort had returned, why didn't he just show everyone what happened via a pensieve. Surely there is no way to dispute the hard evidence in Harrys memories of his encounter with Voldemort at the end of Goblet of Fire

Q: Who gets the "Was this post useful to you?" feedback?

Luc MI just read this Electronics SE answer. I found the explanation very clear and interesting, but I don't want to create an account on that site. So, I clicked Yes by "Was this post useful to you?" Who will get that feedback?

basically, yes
today's on SFF for instance:
anyone around to check a bug?
@Jenayah Certainly!
something looks weird on the profile page for you too?
to know whether it's me or if I can safely fire the bug report on MSE ;p
on desktop I mean
doesn't really affect mobile
Yes, becaus his top tags, which ought to be displayed super big, are shared by three tags with equal score. And the system doesn't realize they don't all fit next to each other.
10:30 PM
best dupe I found so far is
I think this has already been brought up on Meta.
Q: Tag name overflow on "top tags" section of user profile if tag name is long

user268670On the user profile page in the «Top tags» section there is a block for each tag, which contains: Tag name Score Number of posts If tag name is long, then the tag name may overflow, and parts (2) and (3) are not showing at all. It can be viewed in profiles of many users (all screenshots are f...

but these ones overlapped. They didn't push the border
I mean if you've got a better dupe I'll take it :P
(though I already wrote mine)
So post it.
And then I'll flag it.
No seriously, you got the dupe?
I didn't find anything exactly like your case, but there are these similar ones:
Q: Overflow causes partially visible tag names on /users with long tag names

UndoI just noticed this. Hey! I'm there! But that's beside the point. The point is that Nick Craver is there too. Nick seems to like really long tag names, so his profile shows up like this: Akk!

Q: Profile of users with only three top tags is weirdly strecthed if said tags are long

JenayahI think this is related to, or the evolution of, Tag name overflow on "top tags" section of user profile if tag name is long, but I don't think they're dupes as this one had the tags overlapping each other, but this (updated?) bug has them push the border away.

Q: What did "The Witches Cave" ("Podzemelye Vedm") movie rip off from "Highlander"?

DVK-on-Ahch-ToI saw at least a couple different reviewers mention (in Russian) that the 1989 Soviet movie "Подземелье ведьм" ("The Witches Cave") very liberally borrowed from Highlander. However none of them went into details. E.g. Много сцен прямо таки содрано с популярного и нашумевшего зарубежного "Гор...

@Jenayah Ditch the long tags.

Good game?
As distinguished from:
Dec 23 '18 at 0:50, by Jenayah
good game anyway :D
Where it actually means "good game".
@Alex hence the lack of capitalization.
So capitalization = fake meaning?
Yes, Exactly That.
11:01 PM
A new acronym!
@Alex that probably ends with Revival Badge(s), and my gut tells me it's related to either you having gained a lot recently, or me saying I'd catch up on you
@Jenayah Pretty good.
Give Me the Foxing Revival Badges
Got More Freaking Revival Badges
How many guesses do you want before I tell you?

Similar to then.

A gezeirah shaveh from the word "suck".
Foxy Revival Badges? O_O
@NapoleonWilson Foxing
Hmm, okay then.
Which is a synonym of Ducking.
I'm sure the fox appreciates being a synonym of the duck.
Yeah, they look synonymous to me.
That looks super uncanny. The fox looks utterly mad.
"they said not to chew on the duckling... they said not to chew on the duckling..."
