• Are "Sarnoff" and "Tsarnaev" different transliterations of the same name?

    Preliminary research suggests no ; still wondering.

  • What are the title and artist for the song that goes "Adrian, I'll be gone"?

    The syllables which follow that phrase sound something like "Whee-ooh-ooh-WHEEEEE" and bounce to somewhere above double-high C. The refrain may not be worded the same after every verse; either I've never bothered to listen well enough to hear it accurately or it changes (e.g., "Adrian, take me home").

  • Why do I keep getting dumped from Yahoo Games (Literati)?

    System: Firefox 2.0.0.6 I keep getting the standard "Firefox has encountered a problem and needs to close" message. It's really annoying in the first place, and in the second place by the time I get back, someone else has taken my place in the game.

    System: Firefox 2.0.0.6 I keep getting the standard "Firefox has encountered a problem and needs to close" message. It's really annoying in the first place, and in the second place by the time I get back, someone else has taken my place in the game. Moreover, I can't see the conversation window (and neither can many other users), so it's impossible to tell the remaining participant(s) and the participant who has taken over my place that I have returned. Arrgghh!!!!!!!

  • What does "Sao Joao Mamede" mean?

    http://www.lonelyplanet.com/mapshells/europe/portugal/portugal.htm (Map of Portugal) There is a place in Portugal called Parque Natural da Serra de Sao Mamede." Not all the parks shown on the map cited above have the phrase "da Serra" in their names, so that must mean something specific as well(?). Sao means saint; looking up... show more

Not all the parks shown on the map cited above have the phrase "da Serra" in their names, so that must mean something specific as well(?). Sao means saint; looking up "sao mamede," "mamede," "saint portuguese," etc. hasn't taken me much of anywhere, except in finding the phrase "Sao Joao Mamede." Is St. Joao Mamede a local saint (Mamede being some sort of place reference) or does "mamede" mean something in English (as Sao Joao Batista means St. John the Baptist)?

  • If you exercise from ages 20 to 40 and then quit, are you healthier at age 60 than if you had never exercised?

    The specific problem, as delineated in another forum: John and Bill are identical twins. Neither has smoked; neither drinks. John spent his time between the ages of 20 and 40 in the gym, working his hind end off and generally incurring the approval of his HMO. Bill spent ages 20 to 40 sitting in front of the TV, eating all the bad stuff... show more

John spent his time between the ages of 20 and 40 in the gym, working his hind end off and generally incurring the approval of his HMO. Bill spent ages 20 to 40 sitting in front of the TV, eating all the bad stuff you're supposed to eat in front of the TV. On their 40th birthday, John gives up his health-club membership and joins Bill in front of the TV. When they reach their 60th birthday (assuming they haven't killed each other arguing over the remote or politics or ???), should John be healthier than Bill, or will he have lost whatever advantage he had by having worked out for 20 years?
