OK, my google foo is not working today, need some help.
Dunno if you have ever heard of this, but my class ring is very top heavy (stone and lettering on top, just a small band on bottom). If I spin it with the stone down (it's rounded) it will wobble and force the stone up to the top.
Anyone know the physics behind that? My guess is conservation of momentum and it must be easier for it to stay spinning with the weight at the top, but I was hoping for something more definate :)
Thanks in advance!
Calling all Europeans! What is a good online resource for buying electronics? Amazon.co.uk is really expensive and Amazon.fr doesn't have what I am looking for and fnac.com is pricey too. I'd rather not buy it off amazon.com and ship it to my family and have them ship it to me but right now that seems to be the cheapest means of getting new earphones for my iPod.
a. What celebrities do you mix up?
I swear to god, I cannot tell the difference between Leslie Ann Warren, Sigourney Weaver, and Susan Sarandon. I could tell you which one has been in which movie, but show me a picture, and I would not be able to identify which of them was in it.
b. Are there any music artists you always get mixed up?
I always think that Elvis Costello sings "Little Red Corvette." I do not know why.
Where can I find that big chart of various fetishes and kinks, with the links and overlaps between them?
In Roseanne, they switched the "Becky" character part way through the show with another actress.
In Bewitched, they switched the Darren.
In Fresh Prince, they switched Aunt Viv.
Can you think of any other television series that has switched the actor or actress that played a main role part-way through it's run?
my boyfriend just moved into an 8x12 apartment/room/what have you. there is also a loft area with a ladder up top. there's isn't much furniture yet--small fridge, dresser, futon, sink, small table, etc. he really wants to go to the shelter to rescue a kitten/cat, but do you think the apartment is too small?
is there a way to save a copy of a video to one's harddrive with google video and/or youtube which isn't merely a link to the file hosted on a remote server, but an actual hard copy of it?
How do you suggest overcoming negative self-talk?
there's a quote out there that goes around with a whole bunch of other stupid quotes that goes something like "I see all those poor African people and cry. I mean, I'd love to be skinny like that..."
Does anybody know the full quote and who said it? I was trying to refer to it the other day and can't remember.
EDIT: Ok, I got it.

What's the keyboard shortcut to flip your entire desktop?
I restarted my computer, and now Firefox has gone wild. On the upper right hand corner, where all the search engines are - they are all gone. I click to "add engines" and I add wiki, and the dictionary, but they don't actually appear there. I've restarted firefox, but no luck, even restarted my computer, but nothing. HELP?
I usually have google search too, but I didn't see it in the list. Any idea where to find it?

5. what shoes did/are you wearing today?
I just got back from getting my hair cut/colored from my long-time trusted hair stylist and it's the first time that I've ever hated what she's done with my hair. It's this brassy, loud red that doesn't fit me at all. Is there anything that I can do or do I have to wait it out until I get my hair done again? When is the soonest that I can get it recolored without damaging my hair? Is there any over-the-counter stuff I can buy to lighten it up a bit, or should I just go back to the hair salon? I'm pretty much devestated from this whole ordeal, so thanks for any help! :)
What is the best thing to do in a situation where you're just simply no longer interested in being someone's friend anymore?
Ideally, I'd like to be able to go back to just being aquaintances- where we can still be civil and communicate with each other but I don't really have to give anything to the friendship anymore, if that makes sense.
There are no hard feelings between us, or even good reasons that I feel this way about her, we've just kind of grown apart. I feel like I've matured differently and more so than she has, and there are little things about her that I just find irritating.
She asks me to hang out often, and I don't want to hurt her feelings, so usually I either say that I'm busy, or spend some time with her but keep it as short as possible. But even in these situations I feel like I'd rather be somewhere else than spending time with her. And I get sick of lying all the time, and I don't want it to be obvious that I'm avoiding her.
It would be really really difficult for me to do anything to hurt her feelings- is there any civil and kind way to deal with this situation?
What is the best way to handle this? Have you ever been in a similar situation? What did you do?
I'm looking for some new music to download and I was wondering if anyone had any reccomendations. I love stuff by The Beatles and Billy Joel and Rufus Wainwright, The Animals, The Eagles, etc...
Oooh, and funny songs too. :) Like stuff by Flight of the Conchords.
Anyone have any reccomendations of music not by those groups?
Musicals too, like Sweeney Todd, and Les Miserables, Martin Guerre, The Last Five Years, Ragtime..
anything that's in that vein, I'd be interested in.
What are your favorite songs? :)
i posted the other day about my boyfriend's small apartment being big enough or not for a cat. many people suggested we get an older cat from a kill shelter, which i think is a great idea.
does anyone know of kill shelters in nyc? most of the shelters i've come across through petfinder & such seem to be nice and no-kill.
Does anybody know where I can find public domain databases to download? No particular subject, really. I am just looking for a bunch of databases that will work with dBase or Access. CSV format is fine too.
If I download a zipped/rarred file, and then extract it, can I delete the original zipped file?

Who's fault was it?
Wow... A LOT of people don't drink.
Which makes me wonder... why?
Are there alot of latter day saints? methodists? ex-alcoholics?
Why don't you drink?
if you do drink, do you do it because you like the taste, want to get pissed, or some other reason?
& how often do you drink?
I do drink. Alcohol does not taste that nice, especially for the price. It tastes okay if you're drunk, but i don't understand the 'i do it for the taste' people. Then why do you drink it at parties, if it tastes so nice why not have it with your lunch every now & then. Wine is a bit different i suppose.
I don't drink unless i can get off my face. I fear that if i just have a little bit of alcohol i will get addicted. Plus, it's my escapism & i'm not going to ecape down the street, i'm going to the moon.
I drink usually about 3 or 4 times a year. I feel like i'm damaging my body if i do it more than once in two months.
OK, my considerable Google skills are failing me... does anyone know, or can you find for me, what year "My Dingaling" by Chuck Berry first hit the airwaves?
What are your thoughts on working at the same job as your ex does? If the prospect of friendship was possible, would it help ease the awkwardness?
What are the most inexpensive legal music downloading sites? I heard there was a German one where you could basically download an entire album for like $3.00?
Although I'm trying to put my illegal downloading days to an end, I have to admit I've been exposed to some pretty great stuff through mis-named downloads on kazaa and Limewire. So... Have you ever heard of:
1. Libera (boys choir)?
2. George Winston?
3. Mannheim Steamroller?
4. Windham Hill artists?
5. E Nomine?
7. David Arkenstone?
8. David Lanz?
9. Trans-Siberian Orchestra?
How would one go about dealing with the loss of a much-loved anniversary celebration?
Please help me, I'm a wreck!
Does anyone know of a good layout community for a basic account?
1. I was hanging out with a recently-acquired friend and after a few hours, he suggested we grab dinner. It sounded good to me, so off we went. He offered to drive, spent most of the night opening doors for me, and insisted on paying the check.. uh, did I wind up on an unintentional date? Or am I just confused and he's just a really polite guy?
2. How can I politely tell him I absolutely despise people opening doors for me and other chivalrous bullshit? Or do I have to just suck it up?
I've had the same homeroom since they were freshmen - they're now seniors. I want to give them each *something* as a graduation present, but I'm at a loss as what to get them.
I don't want to get them just a generic gift, like a picture frame, but I'm not sure what would be meaningful and yet not break my bank.
My husband thinks that I should get a book for each of them - the same book, but besides the cliché book 'Oh, the places you'll go' I can't think of a book.
I'm already thinking of getting them each a card and writing a message.
Did you get a graduation gift from a teacher that you really appriciated? What was it? Any other ideas for me?
Situation: a ton of files that I'm BT'ing stopped at 99.8%
Question: would it be possible to play these files although they are incomplete? (they're episodes of a tv series), like, maybe have it just skip the 30 seconds or whatever that hasn't been downloaded?
What are some of your favorite pick-up lines- serious or silly?
I think I only know good silly ones:
I lost my teddy bear, can I sleep with you tonight? (similar to I lost my number, can I have yours?)
Is there a mirror in your pocket, because I can see myself in your pants.
Will you help me look for my lost cat? I think she wandered into a cheap motel room across the street.
is there a website i can put my contact info in and get mail and information from colleges? i did it once when i was a freshman but i changed majors im interested in
