I saw a commercial for Starkist (whatever the brand is) tuna fish the other night and realized this...

the mascot is a talking tuna fish

does anyone think it's odd that he's a tuna and he's selling tuna?
my creation on that web site

Editing Notations

My second thesis advisor gave me back my thesis proposal with some editing notations that I can't seem to quite figure out. I'm hoping that somebody will have an idea what she means.

She has p for punctuation, t for tense, what does y mean?
When there is a loop around a quote that moves to the adjacent word, does that mean to move the quotation over to include the present punctuation whether a comma or period?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Does anyone know....

Does anyone know where I can get an image of those safety instruction cards that flight attendants read over before a flight takes off? Better yet, is there any way I can get a real one, other than swiping one?

Also, what are some airport/airplane/flying-related things that begin with the letters A, N, or R?

Clarification: Items need to be something that I can give to a person. For example: A bag of salted peanuts (nuts). I'm giving a co-worker the movie Airplane! for Secret Santa, and I want to do a theme of "flying-related" stuff. (The A, N, R items are so I can give her a gag gift of an NRA Christmas ornament, and say that the "theme" was items that spell out NRA.)

What Christian sects still require women to wear dresses at all times? (Or any that only recently, in the past 20-30 years, lightened up on it?)

Where can I get really really good fruitcake, year-round if possible?

Where in hell is the duct tape?

ETA: Inspired by this post a few down, if someone asked you to give to a charity rather than give them a gift...who would you give to?

Has anyone here taught themselves a language? If so, how did you go about it? Have you got any tips or suggestions?

I'm trying to learn German, and about a year ago I bought a "Teach Yourself..." book and have been slowly working my way through it. I find the usual format of lessons really boring though and find it hard to stick with it. Plus I don't seem to learn well by just memorising words.

My AIM profile is need of some updating. Usually, I just put up some new somewhat interesting websites and subpages ( Such as a "Jokes" section, a "poem" section etc, etc.)for the reader's entertainment. Do you have any ideas for websites or subpages I could add? :)

Movie question

Does anyone know the name of the song that is playing in the movie "Iron Jawed Angels" when all of the women are in the cafeteria? Its the part where Hilary Swank's character refuses to eat and she gets carried away by a guard. Then, one by one, all of the women start singing a song that continues to play while they are showing scenes of Hilary's character being force fed. It's a gorgeous song and I've been dying to know the name of it.

Lost kitty ideas?

Has anyone has an indoor cat get out and not come back? What did you do to try to find him? Happy endings/sad stories?

My cat got out yesterday and we didn't know until we came home at about 1am. We've walked a 4 block radius and called for him 6 different times, and we've started putting up flyers, and left food @ the back door, but it's like he got sucked up by aliens - we can't find him. (His previous owners did let him go outside, so he's not totally clueless, but he snuck out w/ut his collar, so he has no ID)

EDIT: - Our neighbors found him and were able to corral him long enough for us to retrive him. Thanks so much for the suggestions - I'm really glad I didn't have to use any of them. :D

electric toothbrushes!

so i just bought this new electric, rechargeable toothbrush a couple days ago
without reading the instructions (yeah, i know) i recharged it for about 3 hours and then brushed my teeth for probably around 4 minutes straight before it just stopped on me. (after reading the instructions, i found that i was supposed to have charged it for like 18 hrs before its first use.) i've had it in its charging base ever since then but it won't turn on.
this is a long shot, but does anyone have a clue as to what could be the problem with it?
