Firefox Question

I switched today to Mozilla's Firefox, but I noticed that I'm not getting a lot of the images that I should be getting on my screen. I went to the Tools - Options area and clicked on all the things associated with images (I think), but still no go... Any thoughts?

New York cabs

Is it true that in New York, cabs only go a certain direction depending on the side of the street you're standing on?

My friend says that there's an uptown side of the street and a downtown side. You have to stand on the uptown side to go in that direction. If you're on the downtown side, the cab won't take you. Is this true?

The C key on my laptop is broken. A tiiiiny (but important) piece of plastic that held it to the little bouncy thingy broke or something, because now it comes off if I hit it too hard or too much …

Point is: how should I go about getting a new key?

Edit: I have an iBook!

Why do some people say "I could care less" instead of "I couldn't care less"? Doesn't the former defeat the purpose of the statement? If you could care less, that means that you care a little. Hmm...

I'm kind of an idiot, but this is just bad.

In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, in the way beginning, Indy drinks from a glass and the Chinese dudes start laughing because they poisoned it. So he has to give back the diamond for the antidote. But then the "waiter" hands him another glass identical to the poisoned one, one of the Chinese dudes says "That's not a waiter!" and Indy says "Good service here". At first, I thought this meant that Indy drank a glass that wasn't poisoned, thanks to his "waiter" friend, but then he still keeps going after the antidote. I just don't understand what's so significant about the new glass or why Indy would say "Good service here" or what exactly his old friend did for him.

Can anybody explain this to me? I've seen the movie at least 20 times and I could never figure this out.

Hi! I just joined and here is my official first question:

Is it true that in different hemispheres, water swirls in the opposite direction when it goes down the drain?

I'm not sure I asked this in an understandable way. If I think of a better way to explain it, I'll edit.
