Lord Cutler Beckett could not give the orders to attack because he was paralyzed with a mixture of fear, shock, and doubt upon seeing all his enemies together at once. When both the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman rounded up on Beckett, he knew that he had been outthought. He never envisioned his defeat and was stunned when faced with it.
The Amazing Spider-Man cannot shoot organic webs because the spider bite gave him all the powers of a spider but did not grant him the ability to spin natural webs. In the comics, when Peter is bit by the radioactive spider, he gets all his powers – super-strength, agility, the ability to climb or crawl on any surface, and most famously his spider-sense. But, still, he is unable to produce and shoot organic webs, so he creates his web fluid and mechanical web-shooter to be more like a spider and justify his name.
In general terms, “Never get involved in a land war in Asia” means that one should never start a battle that is too arduous for one to resolve and achieve victory. It is a version of the famous idiom – Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
Frodo left for Valinor to find healing and peace of mind, which he could not find in Middle-Earth. He lived among the Elves there until he died. Because of the Quest, Frodo was wounded, not just physically but also spiritually. Frodo had been badly hurt in the War of the Ring and paid a price higher than any other survivor. Frodo was stabbed with a magical Morgul blade by the Witch King of Angmar, who was partly in the shadow world. It not only killed him very nearly, but it also left physical and psychic wounds that never really healed. He was also poisoned by the giant, malevolent spider, Shelob. But the burden of carrying the One Ring all the way to Mordor and the fires of Mount Doom harmed him even more profoundly as no mortal was ever intended to carry such a weight. It was one of the greatest burdens anyone had to bear, and the journey drained the life out of him. What must have been indescribably horrid was the constant struggle between his good intentions and the sweet secret whisperings of the Ring.
Charlie’s aunt Helen took advantage of her position as an aunt and a nanny and abused him sexually. It was implied by how Charlie had flashbacks of her rubbing his leg when Sam tried to initiate sexual contact with him before leaving for her summer pre-college program. The sexual contact dredged up a repressed memory of his Aunt Helen molesting him as a child.
The phrase generally means that sometimes you conquer the hardships in life (you eat the bear), and other times, the obstacles in life defeat you (the bear eats you). You win some; you lose some. In life, there are good days and bad. The quote here seems to present the essence of life, and the bear symbolizes the hardships and difficulties which are an indispensable part of life. It just happens that sometimes one overcomes hardships and emerges victorious, and other times, one succumbs to them despite the efforts.
Why Did Hermione Not Help Dobby When His Life Was In Danger? It was because Hermione was not a trained healer: Although she had a general knowledge of various spells, Hermione was not trained for healing. Even in the books, she mentioned that her lack of medical knowledge is astounding considering the number of dangerous spots they found themselves in over the years. She thought about a lot of things but she never attempted to further her knowledge of healing wounds. Hermione knew how to use healing potions, but she was not Madam Pomfrey.
Shazam, as a superhero, is immortal, but he can die if he is in his human form, i.e., Billy Batson if unable to say the magic word Shazam at the right moment. If Billy Batson dies, then the powers of Shazam continue as they can find a new soul. Besides that, if Shazam ever gets injured, he could be healed by the lightning of Zeus. Shazam has died several times in the comics but he does not remain dead for long and it is why he is considered Immortal. A few Instances where Shazam died are:
The acid scene brought out the similarity between Harley and the Joker’s origins. As part of his origin story, the Joker fell into a vat of chemicals. It was what discolored his skin and colored his hair green, finally driving him insane. Later, it was implied that the chemicals also gave him some healing factor, as the Joker has survived injuries that should have left him dead on multiple occasions. He also seemed to be immune to most toxins and also once cut his face off, wore it as a mask, and then had it sewn back on with no ill effect.
Mel Brooke’s 1987 cult-classic spoof film, Spaceballs parodies several science fiction movies, primarily the Star Wars trilogy, and is filled with mirthful combinations. Elon Musk’s favoritism for the words ‘Ludicrous’ and ‘Plaid’ have redirected our attention to Spaceballs, in which the words were actually used as part of a joke. It is what prompted me to do this brief write-up. If you are looking for the joke’s meaning and context, here is a short guide.
