Why did nobody ever simply snatch Popeye's can of spinach out of his hand before he could slam it down?

You were not paying close attention. Olive Oil grabbed the can and rubbed it in his face like Cagney did with the grapefruit.

Just what was really going on at Petticoat Junction and the Shady Rest Hotel that had 3 sisters up in the water tower with their petticoats off?

That question was asked in an episode. He said he was on his third boat. He built them then dismantled them.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

True Story: My Mom wouldn't let us watch that show because there were unmarried women and unmarried men living on the same "deserted isle". Wasn't proper.

I wasn't aware of that. However, this brings up another unanswered question. Why would he be so stupid as to do that?

On Gilligan's Island, why did the radio's batteries never run down?


They showed Professor recharging them by using some bicycle powered generator or something.



My question is, on The A-Team, the team got kidnapped or held hostage about every other episode (if not more frequently). Why didn't they ever steal Mr T's gold?

Really, the bad guys were running a $10,000 con, yet Mr T was wearing about 3 times that amount in gold. . .

They didn't use semen for one thing, they were lesbians.

Now go watch a few episodes and see what that does for ya.

But Gilligan and The Skipper were both seamen.

And almost always in a workshop full of tools, as well as materials for an improvised armored vehicle or other weapons to break out.

That's worst than asking what was in the silver case in Ronin

He's built multiple boats in his basement. The big mystery is how he gets them out. He's never said he dismantles them.

And we know at least one of them was operational after he built it. It showed up with dead bodies on it.

In DS9, some of the crew members go back in time to the "Trouble with Tribbles" TOS episode. One of the characters comments on the different looking Klingons and Worf says something along the lines of "We do not talk about that."

Also an episode where Margaret's father visits. Earlier episodes stated her father was dead.


Did Col. Potter have an identical twin seperated at birth the turned out to be Crazy Major General Steele?

This was addressed in an episode of Enterprise. It was the result of an experiment to create Klingon augments by crossing them with human augment DNA. I believe it was a 2 part episode and starred Brent Spiner as Erik Soong.

they addressed that in the Next Generation Technical Manual, supposedly a point to point transport used a lot more energy and was more difficult to do.

That said it was probably just for production reasons.

How was the Lone Ranger able to draw and shoot guns out of peoples hands in a fraction of a second and without aiming?

During emergencies when do action heroes have the time to go to the bathroom and eat and drink?

Do medical examiners, lawyers, judges, authors, security personnel, private detectives, etc, pursue and interrogate criminals and actively solve crimes on a weekly basis?
