What's the deal with people saying "I'm sorry," if you're sick or someone in your family dies? It's not like they caused the illness or death, so why are they apologizing?
(I know it's courtesy, but why that and not something else?)
But if you see the abbreviation "P.A." after a lawyer's name, what does it stand for?

I'm doing a little research for an RPG set in 1997, and would like to know if Les Miserable was showing in December in London. If anyone knows (or better, was there!), I'd like to get some basic information like dates, venue, etc. My googling skills is not quite up to scratch tonight. >.>
I'm not terribly fussy about the show itself - the month, year and location are the only important things - so if you know of other shows around that time, that's good too.
had any of you actually heard of the game "snap" involving jelly bracelets, aka sex bracelets, until it was on the news?
Recently my motherboard fried, and i got a new one. Also upgraded from windows ME to windows xp. Now, i had a ton of files on my old computer that a friend burned onto a CD-R disk. Now when i pop them into my hard drive and try and cut and paste them onto my desktop it says..Access Denied. Make sure the disk is not full or wright- protected and that the file is currently not in use.
[i]What do i do to make sure that it is not write protected.[/i]
Also, on another disk he copied my briefcase from my old folder and when i try to open the briefcase it says..."The Briefcase cannot be opened because the disk is inaccessible. Verify that the disk is accessible.
[i]How do i make it accessible?[/i]
No matter how early I go to bed, or how well I sleep through the night, I never wake up refreshed. I ALWAYS wake up feeling groggy and unbelievably tired. Of course this wears off as the day continues, but I'm at my wits end waking up. It's never pleasant, and I don't know why.
I have lived my whole life thinking that "different than" is never correct, and to always use "different from." However, I read recently that it is indeed correct some of the time. This is very distressing... have I been wrong my whole life? Can anyone give me the absolute rules on this? Thanks!

Has anyone seen the Starbursts Fruit and Cream commercial? There is people walking down a city street with lots of crap happening in the back ground while they just keep walking along and others join them. There is a song playing during the commercial, there is a man whistling in the song, what is the name of this song??
And one other...
There are two guys in a car. The passenger is trying to drink his coffee and the guy driving keeps hitting the brakes when the passenger takes a sip. What is the song in that commercial??
Help! I think it should be a law they post the name of the song at the end of the commercial. =(
