comment Why didn't Tesla use his machine to make money before selling it to Angier?
@Sean - the phrase "honest struggle" is not meant to imply using the machine would be dishonest - its meant to imply he would rather be recognized for his talents. Like you say if he was honest about this, he would at least be called a liar, and if the idea was replicated by less moral people, the machine could be abused. If someone duplicated gold at the very least they could become the richest person on the planet, at the worst, it could undermine the financial basis of society at the time.

@NapoleonWilson - aha - I've been responding to flags. Well most flags, theres one that needs some work that I might write a meta post about.

comment What is the shortest timespan depicted in a movie?
The fire on the boat clearly isn't part of Verbal's story, its why Verbal is arrested and questioned in the first place. They also question the guy who is badly burned and get an artist's impression of Keyser Soze. For this to all happen in less than the 23 minutes of Vantage point seems unlikely - sorry. Good suggestion though.

comment Why do some movies contain scenes in different languages?
For my benefit - what are the types of scenes in The Accidental Spy. What sorts of scenes are in English, what are in the other language?

comment Is deliberate cross posting allowed?
@NapoleonWilson - and I don't disagree with that, really the OP and editors should make the most of the question by tailoring for the community here. However in the case questions about SciFi Movies and TV - the question can often be left unchanged. Thanks for the feedback.

@NapoleonWilson - I kind of see this, but the user wants an answer and is maximizing the chance of getting one if they leave it also on the original site. That (of course) could also be true of simultaneous cross-posts, so my position is hardly perfect - but reflects the guidance from the meta post.

On the rest of your comment, we're not integrated with SciFi & Fantasy, there's probably several questions that are essentially duplicates anyway, and its unlikely we would have any intention of managing and merging duplicates between two sites that have overlapping scope. This kind of scope gerrymandering has been specifically ruled out between sites in SE. So on the specific question of the examples here, what would you propose?

@NapoleonWilson - I'm not sure you use case is a proper scenario either - I'm not sure I understand what you mean here. What use case are you referring to? Not getting a good answer to a question on one site?
