** Both the WildCards books and the WhateleyUniverse stories feature “inventor” characters whose inventions are actually just channeling their creator’s supernatural power. They shouldn’t work under the normal laws of physics, but the inventor [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve believes they should work]], so they do. What if certain people like Wells and Farnsworth in the Warehouse 13 universe have a similar ability? The resulting items might look vaguely scientific but under the hood they would be just like any other artifacts; [[MagicPoweredPseudoscience powered by magic]].

* Now that {{Warehouse 13}} is known to share a universe with {{Alphas}}, it's pretty easy to see the agents' special abilities (like Pete's vibes) as being Alpha powers. But that couldn't have been the writers' original intent. If {{Alphas}} hadn't come along, would the agents' abilities have been explained as being artifact-related? From the pilot, I especially got the impression that Leena's aura powers were the result of some artifact's influence.

** Well, the security on de-bronzing appears to be new (Leena was able to de-bronze people, and no one questioned that Claudia could). Maybe they didn't realize they needed security on both ends?

** The Season 2 Christmas episode "Secret Santa" likely takes place between the events of S2E8 "Merge With Caution" and S2E9 "Vendetta", as the stockings from "Merge With Caution" are mentioned, but the events of "Vendetta" are not. The Season 3 Christmas episode "The Greatest Gift" takes place between the events of S3E7 "Past Imperfect" and S2E8 "The 40th Floor", because the episode mentions Steve as if he's still a Warehouse agent (he leaves the Warehouse in "The 40th Floor") and features Trailer (who joined in "Past Imperfect").

** Perhaps he didnt, Perhaps she somehow knew from an external source, like research on bronzing in her own time, or perhaps it was a lucky guess.

* Why was Claudia not arrested - she travels by plane and was issued a 'wanted' document (sorry I don't know the English name). And how does CERN have enough antimatter to fuel anything (no, DanBrown is not a specialist)?

** Don't forget that the scenario was most likely not winnable by its nature. H.G. only beats it by CHEATING after all.

** One, because flashing a badge of any kind will often give you greater authority within that interaction (see {{Chinatown}}). Two, it might work. Three, the Secret Service is responsible for physical security for not just the President of the US, but also many other American political figures. Add to that fact that they are part of the Department of Homeland Security (formerly under the Treasury Department) and frequently investigate counterfeiting (often an international crime), and it might just be the most effective possible American agency to claim to be with when outside of the US.
