I need help with math. [Mar. 30th, 2005|12:39 am]

[mood |worriedworried]

I'm horrible at math - can someone help me with this?

I'm trying to work out a grade for a course I'm in that I despise (and thus am doing horribly in).

Assume:

50% in the midterm exam - worth 25% of the final mark
65% on the essay - worth 30% of the final mark
0% on the tutorial participation - worth 15% of the final mark
50% on the final exam - worth 30% of the final mark

What's that average?

What's the lowest grade I can get in the final or on the essay to give me a 60%+

Help? I hate being useless in math. Bonus marks and cookies if you can explain how you did this, so that I can recreate it on my own down the road :)

1.) I'm looking for the font used on the "Pop Rocks" package... does anyone happen to have it, or know of a place to get it? [I've looked at dafont.com and fontfoundry.com, and yes, I googled]

2.) Why do people squint when trying to read small and/or unclear text? Does squinting help focus better or something?

3.) When wearing a skirt, and using the restroom, do you hike the skirt up around your waist or pull it down like you would pants? Does length of the skirt make a difference in your decision?

4.) A salaried employee goes to the airport to pick up a person from the corporate office. They get in an accident on the way back to the hotel to drop the person off. The accident is not their fault, they were rear-ended while at a complete stop on the freeway. They now have to pay, out-of-pocket, their 500$ deductible, car rental for maybe a month, and 20% of the repairs and hope to get reimbursed.

Since this was on company-time, should the company be paying for these costs?

[starlitsiren]
Okay, I'm thinking of a movie. The title was something like "pink boy" or "boy in pink" or something with the words pink and boy in it. It was French, that's the English title. It was about a boy who wants to wear skirts and dresses and stuff, he's 7-10ish, and his parents are kinda freaking out and taking him to psychologists and such. He read a basic bio book or something, and thinks his other X chromosome missed the chimney and landed in the garbage when the stork dropped him in, and that's what he's trying to tell people. At one point he's talking about a boy he likes(and likes him back, I think) and says(subtitles) "We're going to get married when I'm not a boy anymore."
At the very end, I believe his parents still aren't cool with it, but he's outside playing in a skirt or something, and there's this kinda chunky kid with short-cropped hair sling-shotting rocks at him. The chunky kid's mom yells out something like "(Very obviously female name), Get back in here! and change out of those clothes!" and the skirt-boy gets this look of ":O I'm not the only one!"

What is this movie called? The line about getting married randomly popped into my head when I was on my way to class, and now it's driving me nuts. I wanna see it again, if I can.

kicking a bad habit [Mar. 30th, 2005|12:24 pm]
The Question Club

[shelvedfiction]
[mood |mellowmellow]

I think one of the worst habits I have is procrastination and everyone gets on me about it. My mom jokes that I'll probably buy my wedding dress the day of my wedding day.

I've tried to kick this habit of doing things last minute and not finishing things, but sometimes I just think it's better for me. I tend to get better grades on papers I write right before they're due. Unfortunately I get stressed days before and I just can't get myself to start things. My friends even get irritated at me a lot.

Also, I feel that I'll just procrastinate so much that eventually I will never get the things I really want to do in life accomplished, like my dreams.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get rid of my procrastination habits or how I can better deal with procrastination?

Or maybe now you're an ex-procrastinator, how did you get rid of this bad habit?

I need snacks to eat at work, since I can no longer look at the protein bars without nausea. The snacks must be:

2) Portable. (For the same reasons.)

3) Low in carbohidrates.

4) Low in calories.

Any ideas?

I'm pretty good on maintaining healthy oral hygiene but I'm always self-conscious about it regardless. I work closely in an office with clients & colleages and I'm terrified of even the possibility of me having bad breath. Weird, I know.

2. Do any of you take half-showers and full-showers? I can't wash my hair everyday or it gets really dried out and nasty, so I wash it every other day. When I wash it or shave my legs (can't do both, not enough hot water) that's a full shower. When I don't do either and just wash my body, that's a half-shower. Am I alone in this?

3. It's a gorgeous day outside day. 70 degrees, sunny, just enough breeze to fill my apartment with awesome fresh air when I opened the windows. How's the weather by you??? Is it spring yet where you live? ;o)

[music |"Rythem of the Night" - Corona (also stuck in my head)]

I've got a song stuck in my head... No, I have a single line stuck in my head.

About 11 years ago, my family went to Europe. Everywhere we went, I heard this song in the discos and shops. It was a dance tune and all I remember from it was "Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey". I think I saw a video for it on Euro-MTV when we were over there, too.

Ring a bell to anyone? (I did Google the lyric and it came up with "Sweets for my Sweet" by the Searchers, but that's not the one I'm talking about. That's an oooooold song.) I've never been all that into the dance/club music, but this song is driving me crazy!

Why do people ring you, and hang up before you get a chance to answer it? Ever had this happen, where it rings like once or twice, and then stops?

Secondly, if the phone is ringing and you accidentaly press the "hang up" button instead of the "answer" button, why doesn't the person who is trying to call you ring back immediately?

I'm waiting for a very important phone call and I think I may have accidentally hung up on the incoming call. But they haven't rung back!!!! Argh.

i'm 26 and hope nothing will happen to me anytime soon, of course, but i'm single and if a decision had to be made it'd fall to my mother -- and I don't want her to ever have to make that choice for me. But I don't really have the money to hire a lawyer, unless it's really cheap to have this thing drawn up. Or.. is there a kit I can buy and just maybe have it notarized?

What does this mean?:

"...the time has come for dispassionate discharge of duty."

********

Here is the context:

"Any further action by our court or the district court would be improper," wrote Judge Stanley F. Birch Jr., one of the members of the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. "While the members of her family and the members of Congress have acted in a way that is both fervent and sincere, the time has come for dispassionate discharge of duty."

[goop]
someone's earlier post reminded me of something i was wondering about....

we were watching the movie POWDER the other day where the main character's mom was struck by lightning moments before he was born, so he had a condition where his skin was powder white and he couldn't grow body har (along with having paranormal abilities but that's beside the point).

so he has NO body hair, including pubes, eyebrows..... BUT he had eyelashes. why?

aren't eyelashes body hair?

my boyfriend said "OBVIOUSLY" they couldn't just remove his eyelashes JUST for filming a movie. but i thought....why not? they always do drastic things for movies.

and don't some people not have eyelashes to begin with, or even have to have them removed like for eye surgery?

so it's not like it would be that TRAGIC to have his eyelashes removed for the filming of the movie, especially when they already went to the extreme of removing every other hair on the body.

any ideas?
