The_Sponge: How come Linus's parents didn't go looking for him when he didn't get back home that night? Were they passed out drunk while Lucy went out to look for him?
Uzzah: 7. Willy Wonka (the Gene Wilder one): Did Charlie manipulate Wonka?We know that Wonka has the ability to direct the golden tickets where he wants, because his employee (Slugworth) is shown on-site, whispering in the ear of each ticket-finding kid, immediately after the ticket is discovered. We also know that Wonka's tour contains rooms specifically geared towards each child's personal weakness -- Agustus/gluttony/the room of unlimited chocolate; Violet/gum obsession/experimental gum, etc.But Wonka doesn't have a room particularly targeted towards Charlie's character flaw (i.e. that he's passive/aggressively emotionally manipulative to his extended family -- the "I want to share my birthday chocolate bar with you all" bit, just to get them to insist that he keep it all for himself, etc.). This is likely because Wonka didn't have time to do his recon on Charlie. Remember, Charlie found the ticket the afternoon before the tour, and got it from a random bar purchased at a candy shop, whereas the others got their tickets by buying Wonka bars by the case (making it easier for Wonka to target specific children). In all likelihood, Wonka was aiming for someone else with Charlie's ticket, and dumb luck intervened in favor of Charlie.So poor Wonka has devised tests to see if any of the kids can overcome their own personality flaws, but he doesn't know enough about Charlie to rig up a test for him. Emotionally-manipulative Charlie puts on this big show of "giving back" his gobstopper, fooling the unwitting Wonka into thinking that he's made some great sacrifice (an everlasting Gobstopper? Big friggin' deal -- the golden ticket entitled the kids to a LIFETIME SUPPLY of chocolate), and tricking Wonka into giving him a big reward.

Evil Kirk vs Bad Ash: If Wall-e really is the same world as Toy Story (Buy-n-Large, Pizza Planet) then does that mean in one of the countless sky scrapers of garbage Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang are forever trapped alone? Being crushed for a thousand years.
LeroyBourne: Interesting, and here the whole time I get all up in arms when his bed ridden grandpa jumps out of bed to dance the jig. Really? You've been bed ridden, you're not gonna just jump out like some spring chicken.
SnakeLee: He tricked Jafar at the end by pointing that the Genie is a million times more powerful than him. This movie makes no sense
B.L.Z. Bub: SnakeLee: So he is a fraud for wishing to be a prince and his solution is to wish to be a prince a second time?I think you're missing the part where he's not really a prince. It's all a ruse by the Genie. Aladdin wants to hold onto that third wish in case this is figured out (what his third wish would be if that happened I can't imagine).
SnakeLee: What always really bothered me about the Aladdin one was this: his first wish was to become a prince and the second one was to rescue him from drowning. However, he is torn for his third wish between freeing the genie and becoming a prince so he could marry the princess. So I don't get it, he didn't become a prince with the first wish then?/The worst part is I can't even find other people complaining about this online. I seem to be the only one bothered by this
gopher321: Answer to that article: Because SHUT UP, that's why.
