Is it possible to get (relatively) fit in two months? How would I go about it?
I am not overweight, (my bmi is 20) but have not 'excercised' since I was 13. Im 20 in a month. Not proud.
I can't afford things the gym. I have a bicycle which I tend tocasually ride eveyrwhere anyway and could occasionally afford the swimming pool for a few hours.

Some people think that in russia people live with bears as pets, and when the russian is thirsty, he drinks vodka.
What do you think about russia and russian people?

In response to the following article about the way women dress and victim blaming (read for more details), was this top voted comment... http://www.cbc.ca/news/yourcommunity/2012/06/shanghai-metros-sexual-harassment-warning-sparks-outrage.html

What's your response to this comment and the arguments it presents?

"On the other hand, we "street proof" our children to keep them safe from danger.

You don't hear anyone complaining that kids shouldn't be told not to talk to strangers, or accept rides or candy from them... why not? Why do we "blame the victim"?

Shouldn't kids be taught to be friendly and happy and care free and enjoy candy when it comes along?

Well, no... we teach them to take precautions. Because not everyone out there is nice. And not nice people do not nice things.

I also lock my car and home - instead of insisting that its morally repugnant for me, the potential victim, to have to suffer the inconvenience of carrying keys."

I know the Zeitgeist documentaries are pretty controversial, but do you agree with their segment that links Jesus with astrology?

ETA: Here is that segment for those interested/haven't seen it. It's long but interesting.

iGoogle is going away. Not until Nov. 2013, but still...

I use it as my home page on my PC and have a bunch of modules I selected on it. Ones for local to me news based on zip codes, weekly weather, world news, moon phase, horoscope, and one each for my fave sports teams. I like the ease of having all the stuff that is important to me on one page without having to click through bookmarks to see each one individually. I also like that the news and sports ones offer up 6-7 headlines per module that I can hover over or click on for full stories.

Is there anything similar that is that customizable and will let me set up several modules all on one page?

What detective books did you like as a kid?

My dad recently mentioned that he liked reading Nancy Drew as a kid, but wasn't really into Hardy Boys, and that he thought it was pretty common for boys to like Nancy Drew. This piqued my curiosity. So, AMA...

Which option best describes you?

I am male and I liked reading Nancy Drew books, but wasn't into Hardy Boys.
0(0.0%)
I am male and I liked reading Hardy Boys books, but wasn't into Nancy Drew.
4(3.8%)
I am male and I was into both Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books.
3(2.8%)
I am female and I liked reading Nancy Drew books, but wasn't into Hardy Boys.
26(24.5%)
I am female and I liked reading Hardy Boys books, but wasn't into Nancy Drew.
2(1.9%)
I am female and I was into both Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books.
20(18.9%)
I do not identify as either male or female.
2(1.9%)
I wasn't into either; I preferred Trixie Belden/Bobbsey Twins/other detective books.
15(14.2%)
I wasn't into detective books at all.
34(32.1%)


Personally, I was hardcore into Nancy Drew; I read several Hardy Boys books but was not as into them. (Though I thought the very existence of the modern Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew crossover books was so cool.)

Imagine these three scenarios:
1) You are outside walking when you see a person lying on the pavement alone, from falling or collapsing.
2) You are outside walking when you see a person lying on the pavement, already getting help from another person.
3) You are outside walking when you see a person lying on the pavement, already getting help from 2 or 3 other people.

In which scenarios do you stop to help?
Why?

Where is the creepiest/most haunting place you've ever been to? Why was it so creepy?


For me, it would definitely be the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp in Austria. Walking through the old buildings, especially the gas chambers and morgue, just gave an unbelievable sense of ghosts everywhere.

So, my manthing is getting his adenoids removed next week. His doctor has been incredibly helpful about this by providing him absolutely no information about what to expect in terms of recovery, and seeing as my manthing is working away at the moment, I'm unable to get help.

So, it's up to you guys and the general interbutt about what I can expect to do in terms of being a good womanthing and helping my man to survive the no doubt torturous and bloody, screaming hell that will by his recovery period.

Most of what I've found has been about kids getting their adenoids removed, but my manthing is 27 and obviously not a child (although manchild could be related).

What I'd like to know is-

How long is he going to feel like shit for?
Is he going to be able to talk, or are we going to have to talk in mime and a series of grunts and groans?
What foods should I avoid feeding him? What foods are good and easy to consume?
For how long should I avoid sticking a penis down his throat?

TIA

I have a couple of questions about inheriting an estate:

1. What is a reading of a will like? What kinds of things are gone over?
2. What is involved when inheriting a house that is all paid for (and you plan to keep it)?
3. What is the process of receiving inherited money? Can it be pre-budgeted for various things by the testator?

I've googled but my eyes glossed over a lot of what I didn't understand (which was pretty much all of it).

If, from now on, you could only eat food that originated from one continent, no mixes (so westernised chinese takeaways are out), which continent would you pick?

North America
15(15.6%)
South America
3(3.1%)
Europe
46(47.9%)
Africa
0(0.0%)
Asia - the middle east & india (I'm splitting Asia because it's so massive)
14(14.6%)
Asia - the far east
16(16.7%)
Which means I'm not sure where russia is, so if you want russian food click here
1(1.0%)
Australasia
1(1.0%)
Antarctica
0(0.0%)
