a) Does anyone know where I can find a summary of a book that's not too long (Sparknotes' are too long), but that goes into some detail (i.e. not a blurb from the back cover)?
b) When you're writing a paper, what font do you usually use?
c) What's your favorite of Sophocles' Theban plays, if you've read them?
d) Is there a topic that you know a lot about, but most people don't? (What is it?)
Does anyone have some positive experiences with online roommate search sites (us)?
I don't know anyone where I'm wanting to move, so I'm having to start from scratch. It'd be really great if I could find a site where people also posted some personal things like their hobbies. I'd like to have something in common with my roomie and be able to make friends, instead of just share a living space.
So, um, any sites, advice, tips?
What is your favorite love song? (It doesn't have to be slow to count as a love song)
I need to write one last paper for my english class. We just finished watching the Motorcycle Diaries and the paper has to be a two page argument either proving or disproving this quote from the movie: "Let the world change you and you can change the world". We can either use the film or some otehr prominent figure.
Any ideas for a topic? Or someone else besides Che Guevara from the movie?
EDIT: I also have to use two other quotes besides the one I mentioned above.

Yet another thing I've talked about with lots of people and never thought to try it here...
Does anyone know of a singular, genderless pronoun? 'He' and 'she' are singular with a gender. 'They' or 'them' is genderless, but plural. Is there an obscure term that works for singular and genderless that the people I've asked previously just aren't thinking of? The closest suggestion I've gotten has been 'oneself', but that only works in a speculative manner. It can't be used in past tense, such as "Someone poured hot coffee on oneself yesterday." Themselves is technically incorrect in that sentence as well, as is the reply "Were they burned?"
Okay, my mom's cousin's daughter just had a baby. (To make that easier: my mom's cousin Linda has a daughter Jenny, and Jenny just had a daughter, Sophia. She's so cute!) I know I'm related to Sophia in some way, but what would I say she is? My great cousin thrice removed or something crazy like that?
Also, does anyone here use Netflix or a similar program? Which program do you use, and how do you like it? I have the $17.99/m for 3-at-a-time unlimited rentals with Netflix, but I'm not sure I'm getting the best deal.

I'm writing a research paper for my Philosophy class about the Theory of Just War, as it applies to three American wars from the 20th century. (and early 21st) I'm choosing World War II, the Vietnam War, and this "War on Terror" thing that we've got going on right now. I've already outlined which rules of Just War that our government has obeyed in each of these wars, and which ones they've broken. Now I just need to support my statements, and expand upon them.
My question is, what would be a good resource with which to find some good, relatively impartial articles about morally questionable things that the US has done in these wars? I'm using Wikipedia.org already, and checking out the links from there, but that isn't in-depth enough. I'm not wanting to just Google search because that would involve and incredible amount of sifting through bullshit, especially when I'm researching the "War on Terror." Do any of you know a good place to look, that would have such articles, or many links to other resources that would?

I have been prone to ear infections and strep throat since I was a baby. And Ive mastered the art of getting and dealing with strep, but Im lucky enough to only get horrible ear infections every few years. The past few weeks though Ive had, irritation. like the inside of my ear will itch ( I know you've all been there) and Ill go through my usual attempts to relieve it, putting a finger next to my ear and shaking it, pressure etc. and usually the next day my ear would feel almost like its infected. Today is worse than it was about a month ago, and it isnt constant. Im going to the doctors on Tuesday to let them see my lovely ears yet again, and I have some ear drops that help relieve some of the discomfort but does anyone know anthing else I could do? or possibly what is wrong?
I know this was asked here in the past, and I looked back but couldn't find it, and I couldn't find it on Google either.

When a male is curcumsized, is there sometimes discoloration of the penis?
(The guy I have in mind... the length of his shaft is a tanned brown (although he is pale), but about 3/4 of the way down, there is almost a black/brown jagged line around it, and then the last two inches are a reddish/pink. He was circumsized as an infant. I've never seen such coloration on any other penis.)

Is there a community specifically for iPod help?

For those who believe in reincarnation: Do you believe people keep "recycling" forever, or do they only have a limited number of lives? Do you think souls cycle through lives in order to mature? Do you think souls choose their new lives? If you think children choose their lives, why do you suppose so many people end up with horrible, abusive families? Do they choose the circumstances for a deep, fate-related reason that's not immediately apparent? When do you think the reincarnated soul goes into the new person: at the moment of conception, at the time of birth? Do you think souls can live as animals and then as people?
