I have written an online article about "professional children", that is young adults who stay at home with their parents into their 20s and 30s (quite common in Brazil). The article is written so that's not the issue, but I need a small picture to go with it that exemplifies this type of phenomenon... only I can't for the life of me think of something (let alone find something at Getty or Google images) that illustrates this.
What is this bird? It's pretty. aand somehow looks as if it'd be less violent than your average goose.
I went on a date with someone recently and we'd been talking for awhile prior to that date. I really enjoyed his company and would like to do something nice for his birthday. I won't get to see him in person, but I did give him a card a few days ago. I still have time today to have flowers delivered to his house, but I don't want to seem overbearing and/or embarrass him.
So, not knowing him at all, do you think he would appreciate this gesture or is a card and happy birthday sufficient?
He'll be 29 and I already am 29, if age affects your answer in any way.
do you have issues about this? why? why not?
what is the age of your oldest living relative?
how old do you think you will live?
name me something for which there should be an age limit (i.e., driving, computer tech. instructor, etc...)
i know with msn messenger it asks if you want to add someone when they add you...so i was wondering if there is anything similar that aol does so you can tell who has you on their friends list?
Lady I saw yesterday was one over the limit.
The question is: Without offending anyone, what steps should I take to find out whether the underlying cause for all their birth defects is common? I'm genuinely interested in this in a scholarly way. For example, some of my theories are that maybe their pregnant mothers lived in a part of town where there is an environmental factor affecting unborn fetuses.... maybe there was something in the water... maybe their mothers all had something else in common, something as simple as smoking cigarettes while pregnant...who knows? It's a kind of personal question to go up and ask a stranger, you know? And so many strangers to ask makes the task even more daunting. I want to be able to find out if this has already been documented by local health authorities, or what.
I do know that my town is home to several PCB disposal sites, but I already read up on that, and there are no physical birth defects recorded as side effects for people who live in the PCB neighborhood. Only mental disorders.
Hope that made sense...
I've heard you're not supposed to lift every muscle group every day so I've been lifting each group every other day and doing cardio every day. Is one day enough to see a decent amount of muscle development? I'm not looking to be ripped or anything -- I'm trying to lose weight and gain muscle strength. I know muscle weighs more than fat so I'm going by how I look/clothes rather than the scale, mostly. I've got about 60 to lose, and I'm nearing the 10lb mark.
Is there anything I should add or subtract from my routine to make it more effective for endurance and muscle building? If there's a better community in which to ask this let me know and I'll go there :)
Now the real question that popped into my head the other night...
Would you rather put a lot of work into a project and receive little or no credit or receive credit for a project that you did little to no work on?

You live in a building that has ten living units in it. You all have to share one washer and one dryer. One afternoon you go to do laundry. The washer is empty, but the dryer is running. You figure the person will be coming back for their stuff soon, and lament the fact that they're not there watching their laundry, because that is what is recommended, and you always stay yourself in case other people come around so you can let them know how long you will be.
You toss your stuff in the washer. The washer usually runs about 30-40 minutes or so. Ten minutes after you start the washer, the dryer stops, but no one comes to collect their clothes. 30 minutes later, your load of clothes in the washer is done too, and no one has come yet for their clothes in the dryer, which, upon inspection, are completely dry.
What do you do? (see question 1 of poll below)
Say you pick one of the three first options of the poll, and remove their clothes to use the dryer yourself. You finish drying your clothes (takes about an hour or so). The person still hasn't arrived for their clothes.... what then? (question 2 of poll)
One: When encountering a stopped full dryer and no person there to claim the clothes, you...
Two: Upon finishing drying your clothes, you...
Do you have any secrets for getting stubborn stains out?
Last semester, I discovered what I want to do for a living: Fashion Photography. Like, professional fashion photography, but it would be fine to do small stuff, too maybe to get started.
So, how can I get started on my goal? I have emailed some fashion photographers and they said they didn't have college education. How do I get into it? Is it just a "who you know" thing? The community college I plan to go to next year has a good photography program. Also, I have no money.
It is no longer operating and, in fact, I have no clue if it even still stands. It is located in Olalla, WA, USA.
Thanks in advance!

So I was wondering,
1- Which side do you think is more favourable to win (purely religious reasons)
2- What are some possible arguments that could've been used (pro or con)
1. Purely religious reasons, I'd have to say cloning will never happen. Overall, I think cloning would be cool, but cloning anything other than small parts of someone (organ etc for medical purpose) will probably not happen.
2. The most powerful argument I had was that since everyone says cloning is like men making men after the images of themselves, instead of god. (christianity) My rebuttal was that since Eve was made from Adam's rib, are they saying how half of the population was blasphemous
where is spanish harlem exactly? (streets, please)
also, is 148th st. a bad area?
2. How much money do you have charged on credit card(s)?
3. How much money do you have on you or in your purse/wallet?
Edit: 4. How much money have you had charged on credit card(s) at one time (by this I mean your balance for one pay period)?
why? why not?

does flirting usually lead to something or not?
Outside of a meal environment (a beer/wine with dinner for example), I can't stand being around people who are drinking. I've had numerous bad experiences being the sober person in a room full of drunks, including an instance of having to forcibly restrain someone from getting into their car for a couple of hours at 2am. Its to the point now where when people are drinking near me, I get panicky and just want to be someplace else.
Some of my friends don't seem to understand the problem, and I've never met anybody else like that... so is it really just me?
I can never tell but I think they're just unusually large, everyone I know seems to think they're proportionate to her body.
I'm trying to find turorials, and I"m wondering if I even have the right program for doing something like this. Help? Please?
Today I had a visit with the gyno, whoopee, and apparently my breasts are rather cystic. He recommends taking a supplement, primrose or something, each day and to cut out the caffeine from my diet. Has anyone here had a similar experience? Did the primrose help?
Over the last few years, it had kinda "acted up", gotten swollen, was hurting, etc.
At first I was just leaving the earring in and in maybe a week or so, it "cleared up" and felt fine. I could touch it again without any pain.
But sure enough like 6 months later, same thing.
I tried different earrings. Either white gold or sterling silver and each were a-okay for a long while and then the pain comes.
I'm not sure exactly what the problem was, but this last time proved too much, I took my earring out and left it out, within like 2 days max, the thing closed up and I couldn't get an earring back in. It feels okay now, but I'm just wondering what the heck happened.
I followed all instructions when I got the thing (this being my second cartilage piercing).
I really do miss having an earring there, I liked it.
Anybody have this experience?
What did you do about it?
What should I/could I have done?
And...can I re-pierce it?
Thanks to all who can offer help.
(if you don't believe in piercings or think piercing is lame or what have you, please do not respond-thx)
If it makes a difference, it's a desktop and it's about 2 years old and not particularly high-end.
Is the iPod over rated? If so, what is the best MP3 player out there?
A) We have read lyric poems by three major poets --Petrarch, Chaucer, and Shakespeare --and narratives by only one of these, Chaucer. Yet in the sonnet sequences of both Petrarch and Shakespeare there is an implied plot and in Chaucer's narratives (especially in KT, MilT, RVT and others) there are lyric moments when the characters "sing" or self-consciously taken on poetic forms to fulfill or invert expectations. Compare and contrast function and importance of narrative in three works you have read.
Huh? (And it's copied verbatim)
If you can decipher that, be my guest.
Are you the kind of person who looks both ways before driving onto a one-way street?
I do, because I'm always worried that someone will come the wrong way.
Can anyone explain to me what stiochiometry is and how to use it? My chemistry teacher was gone last Thursday, and I was gone today, so my notes are like Greek to me.
The place I'm going is having problems with their email so I can't get an actual price estimate. I just know that it's $125 per hour. Can anyone tell me about how many hours they think this would take?

How can I configure them?
I had a look in Control Panel, but I couldn't find it.
I'm using Windows 98.

I am very qualified for this job and have a ton of experiance (about 13 years) so I know I am definitly worth more than the base salary. The problem is this - I've never been very good at politely but forcefully negotiating these types of things. Frankly, even though the starting pay is $1.50 less than I am making now, I am just grateful to have a new job that I know I will enjoy way more, even if it's awful (which I doubt it will be). So when the girl hiring me asked would it be a problem, I took it as code for, 'are you turning down the job if that's the case?' I told her it would possibly not be a deal breaker, but I did want to at least try and get more from the company. She assured me she became a manager in about two months because she really busted her ass and I could too, especially with my experiance and attitude.
But I am still hopeful that I won't have to start at the very bottom of the food chain! And I hoping you guys can offer me some tips and helpful advice to get at least closer to what I am actually worth. So lay it on me! Give me your best offers of help! Please?
I just need something that won't randomly blow up or cause bluescreens, and won't hold back the rest of the system during audio processing. So basically it just needs to handle 2d graphics such as the windows UI well, 3D just needs to be somewhat reliable rather than high performing.
2. What should I paint my parents for their birthdays? One for each of them, even though their birthdays are the same day (and mine is three days later). My mom is an artist herself, and loves nature, though she already has lots of nature paintings. My dad is an architect, and likes a whole variety of stuff, other than sports. I'm open to any suggestions. I'd be using acrylic paints.
They will be naming the town where they are building Ave Maria as well. It has been in the news lately regarding their desire to keep not only the university free of birth control and pornography...but the whole town of Ave Maria, which would include drug stores, groceries and any other biz that opens there.
This attempt to encourage all business in the area to go porn and birth control free has prompted an investigation by the ACLU.
My question is...what sort of thing could the ACLU find that would prompt a lawsuit?
In what ways do you think the University violates civil rights?
Also, when you go to the dentist to get your teeth cleaned do your gums hurt for the rest of the day?
EDIT: I meant in a relationship. I know that I want to be with him but I'm avoiding it just because... well, I don't really know why. I'm just afraid of being in a relationship, even though I want to be with him. How do I convince myself that it's the right thing to do?
Do you know of any authors that write a similar genre? I'd like them to have female main characters, but I suppose beggars can't be choosers.
Personally, it annoys me. A lot.
EDIT: Does anyone here watch Miami Ink? According to the show, Yogi used to be in a band, but they haven't said which yet. His first tattoo was on the Bouncing Soul's old manager (not sure if he still is), and last week he was wearing a Bouncing Souls shirt, and they showed a picture of him with his old band and I swear I recognize the singer from somewhere...anyone know what band he used to be in?

A father and his son were climbing a mountain when a huge avalanche struck. The father was killed instantly. The son was rushed to the nearest hopsital where the doctor said "I can't opperate on this boy, he is my son!" How is this possible?
No really, in honor of pi day (HAPPY PI DAY ^.^), if you have ever taken the time to memorize past 3.14 or 3.1415, how far have you gotten? How long did it take you?
For extra credit in my math class, we could learn digits past the decimal. I didnt find out about this until yesterday, so yesterday after school and today during class I learned up to 60 digits past the decimal.
So Estee Lauder doesn't make my VERY FAVORITE lip gloss anymore :( is there any way to find discontinued shades? or should I just suck it up and go try out other colors?
Did anyone see Sons and Daughters? What did you think?
I personally loved it. It's a lot funnier then Arrested Development and it has my favorite actor [Desmond Harrington]. It did bother me that it took a lot of elements from AD, going as far to make the Brother-in-law a want to be actor.

Thanks everyone :)
EDIT: Can ya give any advise on decision making skills? Aside from the situation? I'm always so indecisive. How do you make big decisions in your life?
