"While in modern times a bridesmaid is expected to assist with anything the bride requests or needs, apparently her duties were of a more serious, if not at least supernatural, nature in earlier days. A custom once existed where maidens dressed similarly to the bride would accompany her as her protectors on her way to the groom's village. This would deflect spurned suitors from kidnapping the bride or from stealing her dowry. Roman law once required witnesses to come to weddings in order to confuse evil spirits as to the identity of the bride and groom. This meant that female wedding attendants came to a marriage ceremony in garments akin to the bride's, while male wedding attendants--the forebears of ushers--wore attire that resembled the groom's own clothing. This supposedly threw off bad luck that could be directed towards an easily identifiable bride and groom."
Edit: Source: http://www.ehow.com/about_4576431_history-of-bridesmaids.html ; I originally heard this in the homily at Church a few weeks ago, but I don't pay enough attention to do the explanation justice, so I just googled it. I'm sure there are many other, better explanations of the same thing out there, I just found what I needed quick and posted it.

Tell her to get real and don't risk her cats health because of her own beliefs. Does she honestly think it's okay to force a cat to eat the way she does? That should be border-line animal abuse.
An article about health risks associated with vegan cats.
>Because cats are obligate carnivores, vegan diets pose a number of health risks.
Article - Should Cats Go Vegan?
>Cats are obligate carnivores - that is, their digestive system is totally unsuited to break down the cell walls to release the nutrients in vegetable foods.
I'd also suggest reading the comments on this.
>It's no coincidence that a cat eats grass to induce vomiting to get rid of the hair collected in its stomach. The cat's digestive system cannot convert plant based nutrients in to the form that its body can utilize.
Even an article on how to make vegan cat food confirms this.
>Watch for health problems. Cats sensitive to magnesium can develop urinary tract problems on a vegan diet. However, you can purchase low-magnesium Vegecat, which should solve any urinary tract problems.
There ARE health risks, not to mention it's unnatural. If she wants a vegan pet, go buy a rabbit.
About an inch. When I was 6 or 7 we used to play soccer on the street with a lot of the neighbors. Being the youngest kid, I'd do anything to please the older kids to let me keep on playing. One day as we are playing, one of the older kids kicked the ball really far. I happily volunteered to go and pick up the ball. The ball had come to a rest right on the edge of the street corner side walk. As I get to the ball, I try to pick it up by dragging it. (Like this)
The ball being kinda big for my little self, I mess up the drag and kick the ball into the street (cue laughter from the older kids), I run after it but as I start moving, I see a red Honda Civic coming in my direction really fast and I trip over the sidewalk edge falling unto the street. I hear the Civic start breaking and turning away. (cue gasps from the older kids)
I waited for what felt like an eternity for the car to hit me. As I look up, my nose is right up on the wheel of the Civic. The guy driving had been able to swerve enough to not squash my head with his car.
The guy got out of his car, he apparently knew where I lived (we lived in a small gated community so it wasn't really creepy, he must have seen me with my parents) and took my to my house, yelled at my mom for letting me prance around unsupervised. My mom then yelled at me for being irresponsible, and I wasn't allowed out for a long time. Thinking back on it, it might just have been a week of punishment.

The -OH swoops an H+ off of acetic acid (vinegar) and is now H2O. That's how it works :D H2O will wash it off, as NaOH is soluble in water, in addition, the acid base neutralization could burn you, as it is highly exothermic, washing off with water is actually your best bet.

How to treat a lye burn.
Explanation of "activation of lye" with water:
It is not "activated" by H2O. It is just dissolved, and once it's in solution, it is now free to burn you. Washing it off with more H2O is actually what you want to do.
TL;DR wash it off with water.
This is spot on and needs more visibility. The issue of normalizing volume for audio is fairly easy, however the issue with ultra-loud commercials comes from the mixing and production / post-production of the audio to affect the perceived volume.
They typically make use of the Fletcher-Munson effect to take advantage of the fact that we perceive volumes differently based on their frequency. Since we are most sensitive to mid-range frequencies, they will use various tricks to try and compress or shift the audio to be primarily in that area before normalizing. Eliminating more low and high-end frequencies will create more headroom when you crush or compress the sound. On the meters, it will still only be hitting 0db, but we will hear the audio as many db louder.
This is part of what allows commercial pop recordings to be so much louder than typical garage bands that don't use these tricks. There are other advantages as well, such as reproduction on low-end systems that may not be capable of faithfully reproducing those other frequencies.
I'm not aware of any technology that currently exists to counteract this automatically in the same way that things like standard normalization that comes on TVs do with pure volume ( bringing everything to be around the same DB level ).
sure. big cities have denim shops that can reinforce the area. a regular tailor could probably handle it, or diy.
This is a good idea. From this article on how to form a PAC:
Come up with a political purpose. You can create a Political Action Committee for a candidate, a party or an issue. It only needs to be something that you can promote to others that have the same political goal who will be willing to contribute money. political purpose: supporting freedom of speech
Name your Political Action Committee. The name can be an abbreviation or acronym that connects the name to the goal of the Political Action Committee. However, like any other name, the primary goal is to make sure that it is not easy to make fun of. Any suggestions for a name?
Register your Political Action Committee with the Federal Election Commission. A connected Political Action Committee must register within ten days of its inception, but a nonconnected Political Action Committee does not have to register until it has distributed $1,000 in a calendar year towards federal elections. Every Political Action Committee requires a treasurer so when you create your Political Action Committee you will have to name someone was the treasurer. Who would be our treasurer?
Keep accurate records. A Political Action Committee must provide complete reports to the FEC regarding all spending on federal elections. There are specific guidelines that regulate who can give and how much can be donated to the Political Action Committee as well as how much a Political Action Committee can contribute to a campaign. Failing to document every donation and contribution will bring grave consequences.
Raise and contribute money. The whole reason for creating a Political Action Committee is to be able to contribute money to candidates or parties who will work to push for issues that are important to that Political Action Committee.
Send a registered letter to the landlord, explaining that items addressed to you have been stolen here's a page about requirements for tenants mailboxes:
important to you is:
>USPS does not consider door slots or unlocked bins as acceptable >for apartment mail delivery; in fact, it requires apartment >receptacles to be secure from theft.
Request that he get an STD-4C compliant mailbox. Also, make clear that you have reported the theft, include a confirmation if possible.
I've found landlords tend to respond more seriously to registered letters, also just the idea of having to go through that expense should keep him away from your mail.
Yeah, but most of the time when I'm searching for things, I need more info than that. If you were looking for "how to cook a pork tenderloin", the ehow result would say something like "take a pork tenderloin, season it, and put in the oven for X minutes at X degrees". And that would be a GOOD article at Ehow. Sometimes they are 1000 words that boil down to "you should put the pork tenderloin in the oven and cook it a variable amount of time depending on how large it is" with no numbers. The articles are bloated as hell, but contain no actual depth. How do I pick a quality pork tenderloin? What are some good ways to season it? Are there variables in how to cook it? Temp vs time affecting tenderness/juicyness how? Basically, I feel like the articles are all written by monkeys who just copied it from somewhere else without any understanding of the underlying concepts.
Edit: Here's an example: http://www.ehow.com/how_8052015_troubleshoot-1998-plymouth-neon.html . This is an extremely shallow guide for troubleshooting a car that won't start. It contains no info that's specific to a 1998 Plymouth neon. It contains no details that would allow a person inexperienced with cars to actually perform this troubleshooting. What does a spark plug wire look like? Where are they located? What kind of spark plugs does a 1998 Plymouth Neon need? If you know these things already, then you don't need the goddamn tutorial. If you already have a voltmeter for an auto battery, then you don't need this tutorial. The entire thing is completely useless.
> edit: apparently the superman magnet on the refrigerator and the action figure on the shelf count. Lame.
And even then, the magnet and the action figure didn't show up until a season or two in. This site even regards blue red or yellow clothes as a reference.
McDonald's is bad for you even in moderation. They use a petroleum product TBHQ for preservatives and even "scrub" their meat with ammonia gas. They use non-food filler ingredients that build up in your system. And that is before you factor in all the fat and sugar. I'm no vegan or health food enthusiast and I very very rarely ever eat McDonald's. When I do it makes me sick every time (an effect of the preservatives).
Edit : lol downvotes. I don't like it either but it's true. you can do and eat whatever the fuck you want, I don't care, I'm just saying, it is what it is.
Edit^2 : @ travitravis it's not stupid, if it's for science.
A tip: I, too, loved pore strips, but the only thing keeping me from using them more often was the price. Then a while back I saw a comment on reddit that led me to investigate here.
Pros: cheaper, easy coverage of all face areas. Cons: takes longer to dry, mildly unpleasant smell, must work quickly to apply a not-too-thin layer (this comes with practice). Just thought I'd pass it along.
As much as I hate to say this... and I would only say this to another redditor... get this shit on facebook games/iOS and monetize the hell out of it. You could be sitting on a goldmine.
Edit: also, this.
US Constitution, Article 1, Section 6
...They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.
Definition of Arrest
Here's the relevant bit from the above article: A person is under arrest when the police physically "seize" him. The officer must physically seize the person or the person must submit to the officer's control. However, only a minor restraint on the person's liberty to come and go, or the use of "legal authority" is necessary to constitute an arrest.
Yeah, or like Monk.
I've never heard of ironing in a specific order, but I could just be naïve.
And if I may, I'd like to add an additional note. I wouldn't wear a patterned jacket with a patterned shirt: go for one or the other. There's a how-to here that says how to match a patterned shirt and jacket, but I personally think it looks tacky / bad. A similar concern applies to patterned shirts and ties worn on top of each other, but that rule can be broken more often.
Because the crystals are more or less worthless.
If you go to the great salt flats in Oklahoma, you can dig a hole pretty much anywhere and there is a layer of desert rose crystals. Acres and acres and acres of this stuff pretty much free for the taking.
In it's purest, clearest form, it looks like this. These crystals are available for less than a dollar in just about every gift shop on Earth: they have interesting refractive properties and are interesting to children, but are not sparkly or even clear, so are of little use to jewelers. Plus, the material is very soft.
This crystal is so boring we crush it up and turn it into drywall.
The only thing about these crystals that could possibly make them valuable is their size, and that's also what makes them inaccessible. The crystals are so soft and fragile I doubt they'd survive the trip to the surface, let alone the trip to the buyer. I don't think it's worth the risk to send men and equipment thousands of feet underground only to risk coming up empty-handed. There's also the difficulty finding a buyer.
Also they very important in nature
The biggest role they play is killing other bugs/insects. Without wasp several of these would overproduce.
I'll try to get the recipe from her and post it here.
Edit: she sent me this.
For a size reference, she said she used a quarter. She also wanted me to say she appreciated all the great feedback. It's something she just likes doing for fun when she has the time. She actually gave all of these away in Holiday goodie bags to her friends at school.
Edit II: Holy crap! Front page? Thanks a lot guys. My sister is definitely flattered! Now she can brag she was reddit famous for a day!
>Estimates say about .31 kg O2 for a 1 meter circumference tree.
You forgot to account for height. That estimate is for a 1 meter tall tree. A 3 meter tall tree would produce 3 times the amount.
A better way to calculate this is to note that one leaf has an oxygen production rate of 0.083 mL/minute. So you just need a tree that has 20,880 leaves to be able to produce 1.733 L O2/min. A tree can have 10 times that amount of leaves.
Also one mature tree can usually support 2 people : http://chemistry.about.com/od/environmentalchemistry/f/oxygen-produced-by-trees.htm
tl;dr You just need one tree that was at least 3 meters tall in foliage.
Sorry to be critical - but that microwave looks like it is way too close above the stove top there. An extractor hood might sit that low in a pinch, but that looks like a real fire hazard to me, and quite likely to deform as well as get really grimy from any oil etc coming off the stove top. I mention it really only because it's a big safety concern.
/r/diy is a good forum for advice on this sort of thing.
EDIT: I really do feel bad to only have something critical to say, so I googled "how high above stove top" and one of the most frequent questions was about microwaves. Another safety concern apparently is burning yourself on the stove stop while getting stuff out of the micro. Anyway, here in Australia you are looking at 60cm clearance required. This article recommends 30" for Americans: http://www.ehow.com/decision_6898120_high-stove-should-microwave-installed_.html

She only wants him to lose his job, but fuck that. Filing a false report is a crime if I were to do it, and when you add in perjury on a court document (the police report), criminal defamation, false imprisonment, assault and battery, etc. his ass deserves to be locked up right where he put her.
Failure to show an ID... fuck you gently, officer.

Instead, the reporter specifically says "the deputy, whose name we're not releasing...". Fuck you gently too, Fox 26. The cop dragged her name through the mud... he deserves his name out there as well.
It's a finger wave. I've been doing it on my hair for special occasions for years. My great-grandmother found out I loved that style and gave me her old finger wave clips from the '20s. They look like this.
Edit: I should also mention that I have ridiculously straight hair as well.
I thought it might be interesting to start a list of where spending more for quality saves you in the long run. Here's my start:
Nailgun? Really?! People, these are zombies, not your grandma. (Well, okay, maybe your grandma is one of the zombies now, but now she's a zombie grandma.)
There are only four ways to kill a zombie according to eHow:
Destroy the brain, i.e. skull-crushing force.
Sever the head. Probably just a variant of above.
Fire! Burn! Fire! heheheheh
Obliterate/crush the body. If it can't shamble, it can't eat brains.
A nailgun might -- if you're very lucky and have excellent aim -- destroy the zombie brain. Otherwise all you're going to generate is a puncture wound and lots of sweet, sweet zombie attention.
No, no, a nailgun is just a way to (a) make you feel like a badass (b) get you killed more quickly and (c) earn you that posthumous Darwin Award you've always deserved.
The correct answer is a multi-weapon approach that includes macgyver'ed flamethrowers for mid-distance attacks/crowd control and, for close-in melee, an appropriate decapitation weapon such as a machete and/or an axe. (Machete is probably a bit more maneuverable in close quarters.)
Although not technically a "weapon" (as the OP asked), given enough time, I think I'd use lumber, rebar, and other general construction material to put together a cattle line from the entrance to funnel any incoming zombies into a tower-defense style flamethrower crossfire.
And I hope there's a Subway next door because the soft drinks and gum at the check out counter aren't going to last long.
I hate ehow. More that half the things I look up and check out on ehow are devoid of detail. They're analogous to the following recipe for lasagna:
heat to desired temperature and serve
For example, when my wife recently bought a 2010 Hyundai Elantra, I searched for details on how to add additional keyless entry remotes. Specifically, I wanted to know which model OBD2 programming units support late model Kia and Hyundai cars. eHow gave me this fucking gem
*Insert Birdman's bird call here *
(For those whom don't know, Birdman is a nickname of the gentleman depicted in the animated .GIF of this submission. He has a signature 'bird call' sound he makes that sounds like a pigeon's. More information about the call, along with a 'how to' guide can be found here.)
Since it seems to be there to help prevent me from fracturing my penis on her pubic bone during an accidental pull-out, it is both functional and beautiful. I was a little worried the one time I slept with a woman who had no body fat there (or almost anywhere.) "Why u no squishy here?!"

Or donate your body to science. It can't be used if you are an organ donor (since you will be- hopefully- missing organs), but would still help out the greater good! :) A lot of schools are moving away from cadavers because there aren't as many, but they are always needed!
I was raised by a single father. He liked to keep my hair long and braid it (I learned how to braid myself by practicing on string, it's probably easier than practicing on a wiggling little girl) or put barrettes in it. After a while, we got it cut into a cute bob, and then he would just brush it.
Funny single dad story that my father told me when I got older: My father worked at a grocery store as a bagger when I was a little girl. One day, he was bagging some kind of plant that required a netting be pulled up and over it. He made a comment that it was "just like putting on pantyhose," and then quickly had to explain to his co-workers that he was not, in fact, a crossdresser - but the single parent of a little girl.
Hot spiced wine I can help you with. My wife and I went through a lot of it over the holidays!
Get a bottle of red wine. Not a cheap, $10 one. Port is often used for spiced wine; I like something a little better. Something decent. Pour it into a pot and warm it. Get it a little on the hot side, but no where near boiling. Simmering at most. Add these ingredients:
* 2 orange slices
* a cinnamon stick or two
* a little splash of vanilla
* a few cloves
* few dashes of nutmeg
* sugar to taste.
Let it simmer for about 20 minutes or so, to let the various flavours spread throughout the wine.
Ladle it out and drink it warm; leave the spices in the pot! Just as a headsup, for some reason mulled wine seems to hit a little harder and a little faster than normal wine. You can also let it cool and jar it. It improves nicely over a couple of days. Just reheat and drink!
While GRRM refers to 'hot spiced wine' you can find a lot more info by looking up 'mulled wine', which is a common name for the same thing.
Couple links: here and here. Plus, here's another recipie and this one will knock you on your ass
"While moles that grow hair may be viewed as undesirable by the owner, a mole that has hair may actually be a positive indicator. Melanomas, which are the deadliest form of skin cancer, do not allow hair to grow because they kill hair follicles. Therefore, moles that grow hair are less likely to be cancerous."
We don't even know what state the OP is in. How don't we know in, say, Louisiana (not a legal expert, complete hypothetical, did not verify this), it isn't a felony to carry a controlled substance outside of a marked container?
I don't have the legal background to trust a public defender to do the job right. I'm against wasting money, but when it's a controlled substance and I have zero knowledge of the law, I would generally go for paid advice/expertise over a public defender.
A real example:
>No, it is generally not considered illegal to carry ADHD medication as long as the person carrying the medication is the person for whom the medication has been properly prescribed. However, depending on the state in which one lives (e.g. New York), state law may require that the medication be carried in the original prescription bottle with a current label that identifies the person for whom the medication is intended.
As a New Yorker I have taken schedule II substances and have had them fall out of containers before (due to having a dog, I recently asked my pharmacy to note that I want childproof caps for all my prescriptions - they have obliged, and it has solved that problem too). I could be arrested under state law if that happened.
Point is, even though "In other states, proof of prescription is generally considered sufficient.", I would not trust Google and would instead get legal advice. All due respect.
EDIT: Georgia requires prescriptions to be carried in bottle too:
>Many states, including Georgia, require those prescribed any medications to carry them only in the original prescription bottles, according to "The Times-Georgian" newspaper.
People suggesting Nair must not realize how Nair works. If it's used improperly, it can put somebody in the hospital.
> Nair's active ingredient (calcium hydroxide) is designed to break down the keratin in hair to liquefy it. Human skin also contains a fair amount of keratin, which is where the danger arises.
That isn't entirely accurate. There are two factors in play -- not just hydration.
If you are dehydrated, and getting no vitamins, your pee could also appear crystal clear. This doesn't mean you are sufficiently hydrated. Conversely, if you get boatloads of vitamins and/or take excessive vitamin supplements, you can be well hydrated and still have yellow pee. This doesn't mean you are necessarily dehydrated.
Doctors rely on the "pinch method" as the best way to tell if someone is dehydrated. Check out these three methods (one of which relates to urine colour):
EDIT: Added words for clarity.
I have no experience with what you must be going through, but from a very bad car accident I had PTSD (post trauma stress disorder) which I believe is common in rape survivors. PTSD can make it very, very difficult for you to communicate with others. Fearing that people you love and need will not understand or abandon you is normal. Seeking comfort even in unusual ways is a natural reaction. This is not your fault and blaming yourself is a part of trying to protect yourself and trying to feel safe and in control. You need to call trained professionals today. Please don't wait. There are many resources that will help you cope with what you have been through. No one who loves you would want you to suffer or be punished by not getting the help you need.

Say hello to <em>serratia marcescens</em>. It's an airborne bacterium that is the scourge of hospital wards and bathrooms all over the world:
> Due to its ubiquitous presence in the environment, and its preference for damp conditions, S. marcescens is commonly found growing in bathrooms (especially on tile grout, shower corners, toilet water line, and basin), where it manifests as a pink discoloration and slimy film feeding off phosphorus-containing materials or fatty substances such as soap and shampoo residue.
Serratia is difficult to get rid of, and you may have to clean with bleach several times. eHow has some instructions that may help. The first few days you should probably try to avoid using the shower in order to keep the area dry, thereby preventing the organism from gaining foothold again.
Removing serratia is important as it's a health hazard; it's resistant to some antibiotics, and since it's airborne, be careful when cleaning.
Or, the library.
I hear they have lots of books there.
And you can borrow them, legally, for free.
If they don't have the book you want, you can ask the librarian behind the desk and s/he'll talk to other libraries and get a copy for you.

Get milk. Put milk in pan. Heat until it's OMFG! Quick! Quick! Turn it off! Works in the microwave, too.
Milk has fat in it. Just as oil can burn, so can milk. It burns at a pretty low temperature, usually just a smidge above its boiling point. Which is why when you're making candy and other things that require you to boil milk, you have to watch carefully and let it simmer, not boil.
Here is information on how to get rid of it from the pan.
How do I know all this? Well, aside from some pretty epic hot chocolate disasters, I'm the person my friends call when they need advice on how to get fire extinguisher residue out of an oven. Because the chances are good that if I've tried to cook it, I've burned the fuck out of it.
I was vaguely aware of this, and decided to check it before adding it to my comment. I ended up reading this article from 2008 that goes into detail about how bacteria in snow are not unsafe and decided it wasn't worth mentioning. I've edited my article though since I meant it as a "in an emergency situation" type thing to begin with, and I didn't express that very well.
Edit: this article is more credible, and recommends against eating large quantities of snow Worth mentioning though: "Fatal" isn't mentioned anywhere in any article or paper I could find.
Pushing down does not make it go faster. The reason it stops when he falls off is because it has a dead man feature that will halt it as soon as the stick is let go.
It is true. Ethylene is a natural way to ripen tomatoes off the vine.
This is very commonly done here in the south by placing unripe, green tomatoes in a brown paper bag with apples. Apples release ethylene gas naturally causing the tomatoes to ripen.

Yep. If you want to get fancy, I've seen candles with coffee beans (whole) in the wax. That would fit well with the teacup theme.
You can also make some really cool candles by freezing a wick in a cardboard milk carton (like a quart size), then pouring hot wax in on it, so the ice melts, the wax flows in, and the candle that forms is full of holes and weird pathways. My sis has one that was made like that, and it is so cool.
Actually, I suspect people already don't know why we say that, but not for the reason you're referencing. Hint: Should the word "roll" be associated with turning (or "cranking") a crank handle? Why?
Perhaps even earlier window technology involved genuine "rolling"...

You do not need to be ethnically Jewish to become Jewish. The tradition of conversion was eliminated due to anti-antisemitism. In some semi-orthodox and orthodox, you have to be denied several times (and even prove one self in an unspecified way in some traditions) before being accepted.

>"Germany and Parents From the United States
Germany has reciprocal agreements with all but 5 states in the United States. This means that if a noncustodial parent of a German child resides in the United States, the custodial parent can petition the German government to enforce a child support order unless the noncustodial parent resides in South Carolina, Alabama, Maine, Mississippi or the District of Columbia. Similarly, if the noncustodial parent lives in Germany and the custodial parent in the United States, the custodial parent can ask the U.S. government to enforce a child support order overseas.
>Under German law, if both parents and the child have lived in Germany for three years before the divorce, the divorce is a German matter; child support would therefore be applicable to German laws rather than U.S. laws in such a case."

>Occasionally, one hears McDonald's shakes contain seaweed. That is very close to being true — they contain carrageenan, a substance which is derived from carrageen, a type of seaweed also known as "Irish moss." Carrageenan is commonly used as a suspending agent in foods, a clarifying agent in beverages, and for controlling crystal growth in frozen products. (That last part is vital — lacking carrageenan or a similar product in ice cream, the frozen treat would be a hard block.)
Emphasis mine. Note: you have to pretend they left out "or a similar product" to come up with your conclusion.
Interestingly, when ehow talks about carageenan they use Haagen Daaz as an example:
>Haagen Daaz is one of the only brands that does not use these commercial stabilizers. When you remove a pint of Haagen Daaz from the freezer, it stays incredibly hard for five or more minutes if left at room temperature. An ice cream that contains commercial stabilizers like carageenan or sodium alginate will not be rock hard when removed from the freezer, and will start to melt faster than ice cream with no stablizers.
So, yes, snopes is accurately depicting the role of stabilizers in frozen products and yes, the lack of a stabilizer in Haagen daaz leads to it being hard when it comes out of the fridge. There are plenty of things you can nail corporations on. Try to pick one of them next time. And if you're going to ding snopes, try finding something they got wrong first.
How To Get Rid of Mice Humanely

Its reusable so its a good investment in the long run. I haven't dealt with mice outside of domestic ones, but I have dealt with a rat infestation before.
Even if I didn't severely disagree with your method because of cruelty, for your own safety I highly doubt having a bucket filled with drowned mice is sanitary if one of them by chance is a carrier for something. This is especially true if you have children or pets in your household.

Now here's the kicker:
The weakest point in the wire is usually right at the base of the jack. The headphone wires can move/swing back and forth at the jack and it fatigues the copper strands until they break. By wiggling the jack, you push the two broken wires together temporarily and get a signal back.
You can repair it yourself by cutting off the headphone jack and soldering a new one onto the wires. A quick Google search returns multiple how-to guides: http://www.ehow.com/how_114206_replace-headphone-plug.html
Basically acquire a replacement headphone jack (new or salvaged from other headphones), strip the ends of your wires, solder them to the new headphone jack, and then slide a cover in place or tape/shrink-tube the connections.
Requires replacement jack, wire strippers, soldering iron, solder, tape or shrink tubing.
Most likely it's mould due to the damp conditions/poor ventilation in your bathroom.
You can buy an 'anti mould' spray to get rid of it, or you could try this:
Make sure you keep your bathroom well ventilated. Try leave the window/door open for an hour or two after you shower/bath. Also hang your bathmat to dry after each use.
There are some good examples -HERE-. I've taken quite a few of those garbage "personality tests" and seen these exact questions (T/F):
I like to be in a large crowd. (Are you going to be shy around customers?)
I know someone who has stolen something. (Hang out with thieves, huh?)
It's OK to tell someone a small lie to spare his or her feelings. (Lie much?)
It's maddening when criminals go free. (Don't you respect the authority of institutions?)
In each case, the answer they want is the dishonest answer.
I know what you're probably thinking: Those are just trick questions to make sure you're being honest by admitting innocuous morality shortcomings common to everyone, and they don't actually want you to say you've never ever known anyone that stole anything, ever. Surely the creators of these tests aren't that stupid!
Well.... if you really think that the answers of a list of moral questions objectively indicates the personality of a stranger, despite their ability to lie, despite the questions being highly ambiguous and easily misinterpreted, despite NO evidence linking results to job performance, yet still create these tests and sell them to companies, then yeah, you're probably pretty stupid.

>any citizen can get a passport
Not in the US:
>Applicants in arrears more than $5,000 in support payments will be denied a Passport.
>Outstanding Felony/Criminal Warrant (not parking tickets or civil infractions)
>Prior Felony Conviction that prohibits international travel
Less common reasons can include a court order establishing incompetence, a request for extradition by another country and owing back taxes.
It is also common for people to have their passports denied or delayed for improper documentation, even though they have submitted proper documentation. Whether this is due to incompetency in the government or a grey-area profiling of flagged citizens, I don't know.
What I do know is that when you attempt to enter back into the country they can harass you for all sorts of reasons and, in fact, will not generally reveal to you why they have done so. Take all of this together and you get a pretty clear picture that, in practice, citizens require authorization from the country to leave with the knowledge that they will ever be able to re-enter, despite there not being an official government policy that states as much directly.
Not as economically feasible. Plastics can be manufactured cheaper/faster for short term storage containers. Long term metal is cheaper because it is more durable.
You have no chance. They begin distributing tickets at 1pm, and if you're not on line by 10am you probably won't get tickets. This is what my friend did when he came to visit a few years ago. He was in line for hours.

Banks were again allowed to have commercial, investment and insurance operations under one roof. This led to banking consolidation, and some say this was one of the key acts that led to the U.S. financial crisis of 2008.

Yes, but the good news is it revealed you have no vapor barrier. Time to re-tile that whole shower area, after properly protecting the wood behind it.

Wow, I did the exact same thing as this Asian kid in High School. My dad owned a used tire shop when I was growing up, so I regrooved truck tires from the time I was about 10.
I was in history class when the teacher didn't show up and some jock thought it would be a funny to challenge me to an arm wrestling match. I was a skinny nerd in everyone else's eyes, but agreed immediately.
Regrooving tires involves pushing a gun shaped device with a hot cutting blade through the rubber of a tire, cutting the tread pattern back deeper. I had some serious muscle stamina in my arms. He tried to just slam my arm down as hard and fast as he could and I just locked my arm and stopped him cold. Then I just calmyly looked him in the eyes with a big toothy grin as I held his arm there until he was worn out. I then slammed his arm down on the table like it wasn't a big deal at all. It was a good day.
Actually, it's not. It takes about ten PSI (give or take) to break someone's nose. Your average boxer can produce easily 500 PSI for a punch, and that's being pretty low on this whole pounds of pressure scale. Considering you can break your nose running into a wall, I don't doubt she could break his nose if she reared back to punch at full strength.
eHow - How to break a nose
It's by no means a definitive conclusion, but it should give you a rough idea.
> Smack the palm of your hand into your attacker's nose as hard as you possibly can. It takes approximately 7 pounds of pressure to break a bone. Even a child has the ability to break an attacker's nose with this method.
That's kind of interesting. Found this ehow article on electro fishing, and as someone else already mentioned, it seems that it doesn't work in salt water, as salt water is more conductive than fish.
Although, I strongly suspect what you would do for electrofishing, is keep both terminals of the equipment near you, so the electric field is concentrated in the region around the equipment. This would be very different from lightning, since lightning would discharge into the entire body of water and ground beneath it. The electric field would be much less concentrated in this case, except for near where the lightning hits the body of water.
Hot sauce irritates the sensitive tissue in the nose, causing the body to think it's being attacked by dust, pollen, or other foreign irritants. The body then produces mucous in an attempt to flush out the contaminants.
Smelling salts release ammonia gases which irritate the linings of the nose and lungs, triggering a reflex which increases breathing rate, and as a result, alertness.
Sea World gets the majority of its animals through breeding programs--over 20,000 animals have been bred--as well as rescuing animals in need and rehabilitation for release back into the wild. If release is not possible, the animals are cared for.
Japan, along with some other nations, has a quota they are allowed to fulfill each year despite the global "moratorium" on whaling. The fact of the matter is that even if Sea World gets some of their animals from Japan, those animals would be killed anyway because their primary incentive for killing them is food. In taking the most sociable dolphins from the killing coves, they are saving those dolphins. The demand for new dolphin performers is not what is driving the slaughter of cetaceans but rather the demand for meat, blubber, and oil.

No, there's nothing super special about the anus that makes it immune to infection. The game gets more complicated inside the colon, but the cuts around the submitter's anus ("asshole") could become infected due to the e.coli naturally found in fecal matter.
That said, a million hemorrhoid sufferers get little tears around their anus all the time when hemorrhoids are injured, and they're usually fine. Still, it is worth keeping poop away from open wounds as much as possible.
For what it's worth, that is exactly what happened to my Bullet a year or so ago. Turns out, while the gear inside the bullet is some crappy plastic thing, the ones on the blades themselves are made of a more durable rubber. These gears can actually be disassembled and attached to the base itself. There was a great guide on ehow on how to do that, but at some point it's been removed, and the new guide says to call the company, probably to pay for a replacement. Grr, that's not frugal. Thankfully, an archive of the guide is here. Anyone with a broken Bullet, I totally suggest trying this before tossing it. Mine feels way more durable with this little change.
Thanks for not elaborating or providing a link or two that may have provided some insight into this rather complex topic.
That might have been helpful.
I've done this with plastic storage containers :(
On a semi-important safety note, though, your oven racks are in backwards. The upward-hump metal things that are just hanging out in the front of the picture are to prevent the oven rack from pulled out too far, so you can't pull something out to test it and have the whole thing wind up in your lap. But to work, they need to be put in so that they're oriented like a "valley" instead of a upwards hump, and be at the back of the oven. You have to put the rack in at an angle to get them in...I looked for a picture, but only found this: http://www.ehow.com/how_7454504_can_t-install-frigidaire-oven-rack.html

4.13.9* Door Hardware. Handles, pulls, latches, locks, and other operating devices on accessible doors shall have a shape that is easy to grasp with one hand and does not require tight grasping, tight pinching, or twisting of the wrist to operate. Lever-operated mechanisms, push-type mechanisms, and U-shaped handles are acceptable designs. When sliding doors are fully open, operating hardware shall be exposed and usable from both sides. Hardware required for accessible door passage shall be mounted no higher than 48 in (1220 mm) above finished floor.
For ethanol: In severe cases, coma, seizures and death may occur. Dogs showing mild signs of alcohol intoxication should be closely monitored, and dogs who are so inebriated that they can’t stand up should be monitored by a veterinarian until they recover.
For hops: Affected dogs develop an uncontrollably high body temperature (often greater than 108 degrees Fahrenheit), which results in damage to and failure of multiple organ systems. Dogs poisoned by hops become restless, pant excessively, and may have muscle tremors and seizures. Prompt veterinary intervention is necessary to prevent death in these dogs.
If I had a dog, I wouldn't want to expose him to something like that.

A lot of choking is about having power over someone, not the physical force upon the throat. You can be fairly gentle and still make her feel controlled. You don't want to do real damage to her trachea, so it may be best to put most of the pressure on the side of the neck than the front under her chin.
Remember, there's no real safe way to choke a person. It's not just about them losing air, but choking can lead to Asphyxial Cardiac Arrest. This is a medical emergency you won't be prepared to handle, and it's more complicated than just her passing out and coming back around when she starts breathing again.
I love being choked. Just be aware of the risks.
Single minimum wage workers who work full time find themselves in the 15 percent tax bracket, which includes incomes from $8,501 to $34,500 per year.
Social Security Tax
All workers, even those making the minimum wage, are subject to the payroll tax used to fund the Social Security program for older workers and the disabled. The normal tax rate for Social Security is 6.2 percent of wages, but for 2011 only that rate has been lowered to 4.2 percent. This 2 percent reduction in the Social Security payroll tax was part of the tax cut compromise worked out between Congress and President Obama at the end of 2010. The Social Security payroll tax is scheduled to go back to its 6.2 percent level in 2012.
Minimum wage workers are also subject to the 2.9 percent Medicare tax used to pay the health care expenses of senior citizens and the disabled. This tax is listed on your pay stub as Medicare, and you can find the total amount of Medicare taxes paid by looking at the Medicare taxable wages and Medicare tax blocks on your W-2 form.
These are forms of income tax.
Yes, the same is also true of salt - this is why it's widely used as a preserving agent.
One should keep in mind that since both sugar and salt are non-selective in their mechanism of killing, they also have the potential to kill off human cells. Developed antibiotics treat bacteria specifically (i.e., do not affect human cells at all), which is why they are preferable.
