Actors Between Movies?

Does anyone know of any websites and such where one can input the names of two movies/TV shows or something, and it could list all the actors they have in common? Or even something where you put in two actors' names and you get the movies they're in together or something like that.

I Googled it, unsuccessfully, but I'm also not quite sure what to Google for.

For my psychology project, one of the options for us to do is pick two types of music we dislike, and then say why we don't like it, why others might like it, and what message they recieve from those kinds of music.

I figured I would ask before making something up, since I have no idea because I don't listen to these two types.

If you listen to either rap or pop, could you please tell me why you like that kind of music, and what message you receive from it?

Thanks in advance.

I have an older sister who may be getting married in the near future, and she has just asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. Although my sister and I are not as close as we used to be, I am saddened that she didn't choose me as her maid of honor. I always just assumed that she would, since I am her only sister.

What is your opinion on maid of honor/best man selection? If you had a sibling of the same sex that was close to you in age, but also had other friends that you were closer with, would you choose your sibling out of tradition or your best friend?

Edit: I'm not looking for people to make me feel guilty about being sad. I know it's her day, and of course I'll support whatever her decision is. I was just explaining my feelings- don't feel the need to judge them.

Access databases

I want to import an Excel worksheet into an Access table. For some reason probably known only to a certain Mr Gates, Excel stores dates in numerical format. Apparently 8th January 2004 is 37994. So when I import into Access, the number is all that comes across and it won't let me convert it. There are hundreds of records and I really don't want to type in the dates manually. Anyone know how make the numbers into dates?

Say you're invited to a nightclub for New Year's Eve with your ex boyfriend, now just a friend. You're both 18, and it's cold (20 degrees F) outside.

What do you wear? Do you wear anything special?

Would it be safe to leave a leather coat at the coat check, or wear something less valuable?

Any other neccesities I should bring, or know about?

(By the way, you're a girl)

I know when your body tries to fight infection you quite often end up tired. But I have a urinary tract infection so should I still be ending up tired? I've just been exhausted for the past two days (I started medication but I was exhausted before that) for no apparent reason and I was just wondering if that was why.

The new year is coming, school is coming up, I have to order books online sometime soon, I haven't accomplished what I set out to do this winter break, I'm going to start walking a lot after the first of the year, I still haven't heard back from that stupid memory company that said they won't ship to anything but the billing address, and I just generally feel insecure about everything.

What would make me feel better? (Food is not an option.)

Okay so i like this guy...again. We dated at the beginning of last year and then we ended it because of...i really don't know why. Anyways i like him again and he told me he hadn't fallen for me, but then he told me he loved me. Umm, i have no clue what to think or do. I saw him today for the first time in two weeks and he seemed really happy to see me. Okay so do you have any suggestion to what i should do? Should i try it again? Should i just give up? should i just wait it out?

Kill it with fire?

I'm in my early 20's, and I've just about had it with shaving my legs. The idea of doing this for the rest of my life is maddening.
I dislike body hair in general so I won't stop getting rid of the leg hair any way i can. Though i respect other women who choose to not shave at all.

I don't have the money (and probably never will), but if i could, would it be wise for me to seek electrolysis? And do away with this inconvenience forever? I'd have to win the lottery first, but still. I'm giddy just imagining it...the hairless dream.
I know it's expensive, but in the long run it will save money and tons of time.
