      I haven’t seen most of these movies in 10+ years, so I’m going on fuzzy memory, but I have answers for practically all of them. 1. When John Smith and Pocahontas first meet, the wind blows with some sparkly leaves and stuff, and you hear a reprise of Grandmother Willow sing “listen with your heart, you will understand,” then she understands. 2. I haven’t watched this in a while, but I believe that most of the ones that spoke had mouths and the ones that didn’t speak didn’t have mouths. 3. I believe we’re to assume that Genie gave Aladdin the appearance of being a prince, complete with royal animals and harem girls, all conjured by the Genie’s magic. He wasn’t suddenly given a kingdom. 4. Perhaps the monster world and the human world aren’t in a 1:1 time ratio and she wasn’t gone a full day. OR her parents were freaking out and they didn’t bother to include that in the story because it had no bearing. 5. Like #4, Russell’s parents likely were freaking out but it didn’t matter to the story. 6. Travel time? Sleep? Who knows, it doesn’t matter to the story. 7. Seriously? Who cares? You could ask the same of the rest of her make-up, and Ariel and all her sisters’ as well. It’s a cartoon. 8. I believe Ursula is Triton’s sister who was evil and he banished her for the sake of the kingdom. Been a long time since I’ve watched it, but again, who cares? 9. If you watch it again, Ariel got some very confused looks when she brushed her hair with the fork. So I’m pretty sure for a moment there, Prince Eric did, in fact, think she was possibly nuts. 10. As some other comments have stated, Ariel was likely vegetarian. Also, there are plenty of sea creatures that eat other sea creatures, just as there are land animals that eat land animals. 11. Birth defects happen with every living creature. 12. Have you seen how huge his beast-hands are? Also, he was probably so sickened with himself he generally reverted to very animalistic tendencies (this was also hinted at in many other scenes). 13. Because she’s an evil sorceress? They didn’t want her there. I don’t blame them. Or, perhaps they made a public announcement and Maleficent was just pissed because she didn’t get a personal invite? 14. Sleeping for a long time because of a cursed spinning wheel makes sense yet sleeping without food and water doesn’t? Instead of sleeping, let’s consider it “suspended animation” or we can consider this was based on a fairy tale that’s 600+ years old. 15. Also a 600+ year old story. In that time, it wasn’t unthinkable that people couldn’t leave their homes and set off on their own because they literally had no other options. 16. I believe this was the Indian version of dropping a child off at an orphanage in a basket. 17. I don’t recall them ever saying he was THE last unit of his kind left, but I assumed he was the last in his area that was still functional. It had been hundreds of years since humans left earth, it’s likely the rest broke down and this little one figured out how to salvage the rest for parts. 18. Sell them? Gotta pay for their house and taxes somehow. 19. I don’t think Zeus invited Hades to the birthday because he liked him but because he’s family and felt it the right thing to do. Zeus also probably knew his son was in danger so opted to tell no one to keep him safe. 20. All superheroes in The Incredibles were banned from acting with their powers. And I’m sure no one in the government liked them enough to bother to warn them or even cared that these “menaces to society” were dying. 21. Really doesn’t matter. 22. Some people age at different rates than others and smoking (which she does in just about every scene in the movie) really can take a toll on the skin. I’d assume “friends” is a loose term here, more like Anita sees her as a distasteful acquaintance and Cruella calls her friend and acts buddy-buddy to get the dalmatians. 23. People who have very long hair in reality never will notice how heavy their hair is until they cut it. As it grows, your neck gets stronger to accommodate. 24. He’s a talking snow-man. That part doesn’t bug you? Also, just because you can’t see snow doesn’t mean it’s not cold. And steam geysers are common in hot-spring areas, many of which are in very cold places like Hokkaido in Japan where there are open-air natural hot springs even in winter when there’s a foot of snow on the ground. End conclusion: The person who wrote this didn’t bother to think logically on most of these issues and it’s Disney. Most Disney movies include magic in an obvious degree (Rapunzel’s hair, Aurora’s sleeping spell, Ariel’s contract to become human) so it’s safe to assume that questions falling outside the realm of realism should be taken as magic. In the end, it’s a story to be enjoyed, not over-analyzed (which I realize I did, but I felt all these questions HAVE answers)

      Based on the descriptions of why these rides scare you… make me think you’d be happy to just sit in a padded room with some nice safe stuffed bunnies to keep you company. Based on when I was a child, I’d put Splash Mountain as most scary (‘cause it took me until I was 16 to finally ride it) and Pirate’s of the Caribbean (pre-movie) because the atmosphere of the line and leading up to the ride inevitably always made me cry… until after the first drop then I was ok, but it was the only ride as a child that made me cry. Either way, that’s my view as a child, none of the other rides are, in my opinion, scary. I will agree however that Big Thunder Mountain is the best coaster at Disneyland. Also: most deaths that have occurred on Disneyland rides (or in the park in general) were not Disney’s fault, they were because those who died were stupid (like the one with the boat).

      I’m sorry, this list was made by someone who got most of their anime primarily from Cartoon Network. I’ll agree with Death Note, the second half was a little weak, but I agreed that it had the best ending it possibly could have asked for. Guren Lagann? Don’t think so, after the time-jump, the show was pretty much trash and lost so much ‘thrill’ when they lost sense of proportion and there was mechs the size of galaxies. This show was only good up until Kamina died. (don’t complain about spoilers, this whole list warned of spoilers) Bebop as number 1? No. In a 26 episode series, only 4 of the episodes even had anything resembling an overarching “story,” and if you consider that, it didn’t even need an ending. I’ll agree with a couple other comments, Code Geass needs to be on this list. Of the 100 or so animes I’ve watched, Code Geass has the best ending. Coming in close after that is Kanon and Clannad/Clannad: After Story (both must be watched to get the whole story), Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni/Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai (same as with Clannad). Before writing a list about something and calling it “greatest of all time”, try being more familiar with more things in the category you’re talking about.

      I agree with this whole list with one exception: it doesn’t include the lazy buggers who work as servers because they can’t get a job elsewhere. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been to a restaurant and my server is literally standing at the register, yacking it up, and I’ve been waiting 20 minutes to have my order taken. Sometimes, I have to wave down a server because they just don’t look my way.

      Honestly, I don’t see how it matters. This list even calls out that it’s the authors’ PERSONAL views. It’s interesting, sure (granted, OSC being homophobic isn’t really news), but it shouldn’t stop anyone from appreciating their work because so long as it doesn’t affect there work, then it shouldn’t matter. I’ve read about 25 OSC books, and not once has his homophobic views affected his writing, there’s even a homosexual character, cast in a fairly good light, in one of his books.
