  • Manila Bay lies off the coast of which island of the Philippine archipelago?

    I need this question for APUSH and I unfortunately forgot my textbook in my locker over the weekend. A Google search shows multiple answers so I need a solid answer, thanks.

  • Best daily exercises for a teenage boy to do to get abs?

    I made progress gradually over the summer, then school started and I barely had time to exercise. Now my workload has lessened a little bit so I have time to do it again.

    Just wondering - would crunches, push ups, sit ups, etc be fine? Which one(s) should I do and how many should I do daily?

  • Starting singing lessons at 16?

    I've been seriously considering getting some voice lessons lately. I don't want a serious singing career at all; I just want to "expand my horizons" in a way and I'd also like to start singing along with my guitar playing. I guess the way I'm looking at it is that it would be one less thing I can't do.

    Do you think it's too late? What are the lessons most likely going to consist of and (taking into account my age) how long until I can see/hear some progress? I'm also going to assume the teacher won't mind if I'm absolutely terrible... Also, are lessons and practice time consuming? I get 2-4 hours of homework each night for school and such so I don't want them to take up too much time.

    Thanks for the answers in advance.

  • Is this too much work for my senior year?

    First of all, I'd like to point out that due to the way I formatted this it might appear lengthy.

    Anyways, I am currently a junior in high school. I've had my schedule for my senior basically planned out since mid-sophomore year (I really like to plan ahead) and I decide to think it over again. Here is what the schedule I cam up with looks like (excluding my gym period):

    1) Economics/Participation in Government (Required, possibly taking over the summer instead and may become a lunch period or AP European History)

    2) Personal Finance (Required, turns into a study hall the opposite semester)

    3) AP English 12

    4) AP Calculus BC

    5) AP Physics B

    6) AP Physics B (2 periods/day)

    7) AP Chemistry

    8) AP Chemistry (2 periods/day)

    I'm just wondering what everyone will think the workload will be like. I already have a huge workload this year but I don't mind it and I still have time for social things and extracurriculars. This year I'm taking AP English, APUSH, Regents Physics and Chemistry, Music Theory (lots of homework), Precalculus, and French 4A (college level).

    Also, do colleges really care if I take AP classes or not? I'm double majoring in Engineering and Physics so I am for sure taking Calculus BC and AP Physics. I'm taking AP Chemistry because I enjoy and am good at chemistry. Should I even bother with the extra work of AP English 12 and AP European History?

    One more question, what's the difference between AP Physics B and AP Physics C, etc?

    Thanks in advance.

  • How to gain bulk and muscle as a slim teenager?

    Alright, so I'm 15 years old (almost 16) and about 6 feet tall and 135 pounds. I play rugby in the spring, I just finished the season last month, and I don't exactly look too intimidating on the field because I'm really skinny. I'm definitely not weak by any means, but my arms are just so skinny at this point that it doesn't look like I have any muscle unless I flex, which basically makes me a show off.

    I've tried gaining weight in the past - I eat A LOT of food and drink plenty of water every day. The reason I have trouble gaining weight is because I have an extremely high/fast metabolism. Now that I think about it, I could always eat more meat. I'll start with that. Please let me know something I can do with my diet to gain more bulk. (as in muscle, not just fat)

    I also want to know some exercises I can do by myself with dumbbells in my room. If anyone can give me a good daily (or something manageable) routine I can do I would greatly appreciate it!

    Before anyone asks, I know with me being young working out isn't always a good thing, but I just want to gain bulk because I'm tired of being the skinny kid in school and not looking intimidating on the field. I also want to help boost my confidence a little bit and look better for my girlfriend, etc.

    Thanks for the answers in advance!

  • Am I doing okay for playing guitar for 2 months?

    I'm teaching myself how to play guitar as I'm too stubborn to take lessons and think it would be interesting to do learn guitar by myself. I practice for at least (bare minimum) 15 minutes a day but on average possibly 30 minutes a day. I only know about 8 chords by heart that I can switch to fairly easily. I only know about 2 full songs but a handful of riffs. I am currently trying to become better at fingerstyle and I can almost play Blackbird by The Beatles (but slowly because of the chords I have to form) but I am fairly good at fingerstyle patterns/exercises. Am I going at a good rate?

  • How would I reject this girl?

    So, for once in my life I finally decided to log on to Facebook chat. Then, randomly, this one girl started talking to me (whom I've know for a few years and haven't talked to for a while) and said I should go to the movies with her. I thought it was just going to be "fun" because one of my guy friends is going too. When I asked him about it, he told me he was going with her cousin and the she was suppose to be going with her boyfriend and he couldn't make it to the movies. So I figured, I'm just being used so that it isn't awkward for her.

    Then I got a text from her a few hours later saying "we're getting married tomorrow:D". Okay, I've never had a girlfriend/any experience with this before and I don't know how I would reject her, probably even before the movie started (which would be extremely awkward for everyone afterwards).

    By the way, we're freshman in High School if that helps at all. I don't want to see I can't go, because that would leave her lonely when her cousin and the other are getting it on, and I don't want to go, well, because it feels like I'm being used if you know what I mean.

    What should I do? Thanks in advance!

  • How to update my video card driver?

    I have the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE (version 6.14.10.8268, which is probably really old), running on Windows XP. Where can I update this driver? I have looked on the NVIDIA website, but I can't find it. Maybe I'm just overlooking it. I have also tried googling it. This is really annoying me because when I try to play multiplayer games on my computer, it is really bad.

    Thanks for the help in advance. :)

  • What to do in this situation?

    So, basically, in the middle of class today, these two girls were talking and one of them screamed out for me. Then the other girl was like, "No, don't tell him!", and then the girl that screamed out my name said never mind.

    Well, I know that could have been anything, but obviously in that situation and the personality of the two girls it means the one girls likes me.

    If it were to happen the other way, where they came out and actually said it, what should I have said? I don't really like the girl 'that' much.

    Thanks in advance. :)

  • Would I be able to get the Jirachi event again after starting a new game?

    (This is on Pokemon Soulsilver.)

    Hey, I just wanted to know if I can get the Jirachi from the Mystery Gift event over Wi-Fi again if I restart my game. I got it yesterday (the first day you were able to) and now I want to restart my game because I am halfway through and dont want to waste over half the experience from trainer battles on it.
