• Alternative to scrolling to the end ?

I have been a member for 8 years or so. If I wish to see my old answers, I have to scroll endlessly. Is there any way (some computer trick) of going to the end directly ?

• Challenging combinatorics question?

There are 7 pairs of socks colored red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. (There is no left - right distinction). You pick them up at night in the dark randomly, and tie them up in pairs. In the morning you find that strangely, all 7 pairs are mismatched in color. How many ways are there for such a strange thing to happen ?

How many distinct arrangements (i.e. rotations of an arrangement not counted) will be there ? Normally, for distinct objects in an unnumbered circle, the formula is n!/n or (n-1)! but for indistinct objects it becomes quite complex.

• ENT examination trauma?

I had started tiring after 1/2-1 hour of singing, so went to consult an ENT specialist, who told me I had bilateral singer's nodules. 1 week later, he said 1 of them had shrunk, and another 2 weeks later, he said that both of them had shrunk.

I had started tiring after 1/2-1 hour of singing, so went to consult an ENT specialist, who told me I had bilateral singer's nodules. 1 week later, he said 1 of them had shrunk, and another 2 weeks later, he said that both of them had shrunk. Here I want to mention that the examination procedure was to depress my tongue, and ask me to say EE very loudly, which was quite traumatic, especially on the 3rd examination which an assistant conducted. When even 3 months of voice rest etc,instead of improving it became worse because previously I used to tire on singing but could speak endlessly, now speaking 3 minutes on the phone makes my voice hoarse. So i went to another doc who examined me in a less traumatic way through the nose, and said I have SULCUS VOCALIS (some part of the vocal cords peeled off) My question is: Could the 3 traumatic initial examinations have precipitated the damage to the vocal cords ? I would be very grateful for an informed answer.

I did this some 10 days, but while the sore throat became better, I found it harder and harder to hit the high notes, and some days later, my voice became hoarse, and remains hoarse. Could this be due to turmeric powder clogging my throat as a paste, and when dry, migrating to the vocal cords, making them sluggish ? If so, what should I now do to clean up the throat and vocal cords? Thanks in advance for your time.
