* How does Kida know what stars look like, if Atlantis has been submerged for 9000 years?

** It's a good point. I subconsciously assumed that Cookie was actually part of Whitmore's earlier teams back in the days when he went on these kinds of expeditions ''himself,'' and was simply the only one whose skill set never needed to be upgraded to 'best in their field'. There's certainly an implication that he's a long-time ActionSurvivor.

*** Infamous? I don't ever remembering it being known for being bad. As yo answer your question, the leader thought that there was an actual portal to Atlantis. Like in Treasure Planet or Flint Lockwood's Grocery Deliverator.

**The king mentioned that it would "bind" to Kida if they didn't disconect them quick enough when he told them that it was "alive in a way". That was partly why he asked them to save her before it was to late. He didn't want her to be bound to the crystal forever.

***Even later than that actually, Modern English has some Norman in it as well, from when William the Conqueror took the throne of England. So they'd be connected as late as the 11th century.

** It's also possible he was flustered by trying to say someone's proper name in a language he'd only recently started speaking out loud. That nervousness could be what made him botch his first attempt, and then his embarrassment is what led him to asking for an alternative instead of trying again.

** This premise actually isn't too farfetched.For a real-life example, Linda Schele is a renowned archaeologist who is known for teaching the modern Mayan people their indigenous language.

There have been similar cases in Egypt (hieroglyphics) and Greek (Mycenaean Linear A). There weren't any immortals around in those cases, of course, but both time gaps were ''much'' smaller.

*** A surprising number of Americans today are barely literate enough to text 'lol' to their friends and learn which celebrities are getting divorced this week. A surprising number are incapable of programming or maintaining their various gadgets, using the instructions written in their manuals. An absolutely astounding number vote on complex political issues without reading the plentiful information provided to help them decide. Now imagine a large percentage of the engineers and educators die in a great flood and there's a 6000-year period in which the celebrities don't divorce, the gadgets don't need maintenance or repair, and the King has the only vote.
