Can't she hire an assistant? I mean, it's not like she can't afford it…

So… JKR messing up with numbers and dates again, basically?

The first question is an opinion hence cannot be answered here (try Philosophy.SE, maybe?).

I lost interest at the word "midichlorians".

comment Why do some bank websites use passwords that are not case sensitive?
(of course, since we are talking about a bank, then yes they are likely to store it plaintext anyway, but that's beside the point)

comment Why do some bank websites use passwords that are not case sensitive?
@ColeJohnson there's unfortunately PLENTY of websites that arbitrarily limit your password length for no reason. This never implies they store it plaintext, it only implies they have no clue what actually is a hash even if they're using it.

Case sensitive? Ask yourself why it is often limited to 8 characters… their brains are legacy, and will hopefully be retired and switched with newer ones, which actually are able to think…

comment To assault a dwarven city
@Bryce I'm no engineer, but I strongly doubt drainage tunnels have an infinite capacity: they are likely to be built to handle more water than necessary during heavy rainfalls, but an entire river must be definitely more that they can handle.

+1 because the OP didn't specify the McGuffin could be simply moved away. Otherwise it should be taken into account.

comment North Korean Famine
[chat] Lol, that attitude is so sad and insane that it's actually fun. So, men are forced to do unpaid work, it's not that they have a choice, but despite they have no choice, they are still regarded as a dead-weight by women. Mind-blowingly dumb. Not that these women are likely to be educated anyway, but this is lacking the really basic logic that I would expect even from a primary school kid…

comment Why do so many national flags contain the color red?
@Semaphore white, yes. But why red is vastly predominant against other colors, is definitely a history question. I guess that's just thanks to the USSR: would-be communist states almost always used red, skewing the results. But I have no data to back this up: it would be interesting to count the colors excluding would-be communist countries, and see if they are much more balanced or not.

comment Why do so many national flags contain the color red?
Found it! No time to read it carefully now, but it confirms red wins (148), with the caveat that white is close by (140) and the others are quite behind (102, 89, …). I thought white was not so close, but otherwise it confirms what I thought.

comment Why do so many national flags contain the color red?
Yes, but you also say "Red color is not really over represented in flags, at least not really overtaking the other mentioned colors", which I'm pretty sure it's wrong. Now I'd like to find a complete stat about this…

comment Why do so many national flags contain the color red?
Actually red is the most common color in flags, AFAIK. By far.

comment How could humans recognize another species as sentient / intelligent?
Regarding point 2: highly predictable is not intelligent, but highly random also isn't. I mean, unless you want to consider the weather to be intelligent? So, to be intelligent, you have to be somewhat middle ground, I'd say…

comment How close to interstellar space travel could humans get in the near future?
About the nuclear bombs, can't it just "take off" normally, and start using the bomb-propulsion once it's already in space?

comment How to determine if character has fallen into the gap in an infinite runner/jumper?
OT: I though this question was posted on rpg.SE and I thought "What kind of rule exploit has been found now? Infinite running how?"
