Five things we're all wondering about....


Election wins best movie at Hong Kong Film Awards ... a powerful boss consolidates his support and eliminates all challengers - yep, sounds like a Hong Kong election.


Buried war arsenal found in city ... it's a good idea to dig up these old bombs because the gas explosions might set them off.


Skeletons found in Ho Man Tin ... and when those war bombs explode, the bones will be shrapnel.


Rail merger will take 50 years to complete ... that's an even longer engagement than Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Carina Lau Ka-ling.


Betting reform, such as rebates, to deter illegal betting ... you don't need rebates to entice losing punters. Just emphasise the fact that the Jockey Club treats its winning punters and the losers exactly the same way.
