Minors and hospitals

Will hospitals see and treat a minor without an adult present?

Reason being my brother who's 15 thinks he broke his thumb. He wants to go to the urgent care centre tomorrow for it. There's noone home to take him tomorrow so he would have to go on his own. Will they see/treat him without an adult present?

I'm in Canada if that makes a difference.

Alright people, WTF is going on with Yahoo!?!? Or is it just my laptop? I log on to my e-mail but I can't seem to access my inbox! WTF? I don't seem to have a problem with it when I'm at work--could it be my laptop? A virus?

Has anyone here heard of the band Of A Revolution (OAR)? what kind of music do they play? are they any good? if you had to compare them to another group, who would it be?

they're coming to play at our university, and I'm supposed to get tickets to go with some friends. but I've never heard their music, and I don't know if I'll like them. should I save my money?

1) I'm making a compilation CD of duets. Ones I already have on it include:

Chad Kroger and Santana - Why Don't You and I
Tom Jones and the Cardigans - Burning Down the House
Céline Dion and Garou - Sous le Vent
Nelly Fertado and Juanes - Fotographía
Sting and Mary J Blige - Whenever I Say Your Name
Placebo and David Bowie - Without You I'm Nothing
Mylène Farmer and Seal - Les Mots

I don't like rap, r&b, or country. Anything else is fine, even foreign music.

2) Oh, and on the note of foreign stuff. I want to make another compilation of non-English music. I have lots in French and Spanish to choose from, but not much else. (Though would still be interested in songs in either language if you know something really good.)

Any suggestions for either compilation? :-) (Is there a community where I can post questions like this, specifically for compilations? It seems a lot of my questions here and for these!)

Thanks to everyone for their great suggestions!

Weird question: I think I want to be a veterinarian. My question is, can you get used to observing (and eventually performing) surgery? I did an internship with a vet this summer and found the surgeries to be very interesting but they did churn my stomach...Once, for no reason that I could figure out, I felt really sick all of a sudden and had to go outside and sit with my head between my knees for several minutes. I'd felt fine through most of it, so it was kind of weird. I never saw a surgery that didn't cause me discomfort, but I didn't see too many and they did get better...Is there hope for me? Most people I've talked to said you can get used to it, but some say that it's in you or it's not. (I know I wouldn't be able to watch surgery on humans, but animals doesn't bother me nearly as much.)

Ebay question

I won an auction for some boots on Ebay and I got the package today... but it's the wrong boots! Completely different... Can anyone tell me what I need to do to resolve this? Do I just contact the seller and resolve it privately or is there some specific way Ebay has set up to handle this situation?


When you have your futon up like a couch, how does the back stay up? Should it always be leaning against a wall?

My friend loaned me hers and I'm trying to figure out how to set it up.

ethical (?) question

We have the latest edition of Windows, where everything's password-protected and all that. Well, a few days ago my brother got his friend to semi-hack into my dad's account, and he reinstalled Kazaa, and we've had this problem with obnoxious popups since. My dad's bound to notice, and I'm mad at my brother for reinstalling not only Kazaa but a few other useless programs on our PC. But he gets all pissy if I tell my dad about some of the stupid stuff he does, and he calls me a "tattletail"... how mature. But my dad will get mad at ME because he assumes that EVERYTHING I download is Evil (including AIM) if I don't say anything.

So, what should I do?

have you ever wished you could just cut someone out of your life? someone close to you, that seems to do more harm than good (perhaps because they are very negative, make you feel like shit, etc)? or -- have you ever done this?

Suggest me some dance songs to listen to? I mostly listen to trance, and besides some hardhouse and UK garage my guy friend sent me last summer, I haven't tried out any other dance genres.

have you ever been shocked on your ears by your headphones?
is it possible that this happened because i was wearing them under my knitted hat that gives me static electricity?
it baffles me because i thought that my cd player would have to be grounded.
it was riding around in my bag.

What's the most amusing thing you've heard all week?

I have three!

"Friends don't let friends squaredance... cuz that's just square."
-my ten-year-old sister, when I said how much fun it was learning how to squaredance with my friend

"That is sooo disgusting."
-a friend, after we were trying to figure out why my other friend's name came up on yahoo as four different names long, and which one was his last name

My gay male youth group coordinator, when we were talking about how this other guy was crushed because his mother has a list of 'ways to make him straight' (eg. make him go out with girls): "If I were him, I'd do everything on the list, go through all of them, and then have a whole bunch of new girlfriends to go shopping with."

How does one go about deleting a livejournal they're not using?

I don't see a point in keeping it since it'll just take up space and now that there's free accounts without a code no one wants it. So how do I delete it?
