  • I'm looking into buying a new desk chair and if anyone has one they absolutely love, please tell me.?

    I currently have a Humanscale chair that I like, but thought there might be some better ones to try. I can spend up to $1300 or so. I just really need something that is going to allow me to sit for long periods and not hurt my back.

  • I noticed that someone I had invited to an event on Facebook now no longer appears on the list...?

    I noticed that someone I had invited to an event on Facebook now no longer appears on the list of invited guests. Why would this happen? She didn't unfriend me. Is it possible she removed herself without declining the invite or could she still be there and just hid her profile from the other potential guests somehow?

  • How to get rid of rust marks?

    I left a whisk that had rust on it in a porcelain bowl overnight and now there is a rust mark on the inside of my white porcelain bowl. I have tried to scrub it with dish soap and soaked it in bleach water but it's not working. Everything online talks about how to clean a toilet bowl. Does anyone know how to get rid of the mark on the serving bowl? Thank you!

  • trip to Vietnam and Cambodia... advice?

    I'm planning a trip, alone, to Vietnam and Cambodia (3 weeks total) in the fall. Not sure if I'll do a partially escorted trip yet or not, but would love to hear any advice on accommodations, shopping, restaurants, etc. that anyone has. I'm still not sure exactly where I'll be going but I'd like to spend a few days in each location and then move on. Let me know if there's anything you think I should definitely include in the trip or should skip over. Thanks in advance for the advice.

  • If you are in the process of suing someone and they die, what happens?

    Is their estate put on hold until the lawsuit is finished? If they can no longer testify on their own behalf in a civil suit, is the lawsuit simply dismissed?

  • Which type of oil for my Audi A4?

    Hi. I have a 2007 Audi A4 which has a turbo engine. According to the manual, SAE 5W-40 oil is preferred. I found an auto parts store that carries it but the bottle specifically says it's for diesel engines which mine is not. The guy at the store said it's fine. Just wanted to double check that this oil is okay to use. Otherwise, I could use 5W-30 which is available at all the gas stations. Advice? Thank you in advance.

  • Could I have re-torn my ACL?

    I am 4 1/2 weeks post op and was doing really well with my recovery. Yesterday, I slipped with my good leg and ended up sort of jumping and landing with my bad leg in full extension, jarring it. No swelling but more pain than I had before. I hadn't gotten full extension back yet and this may have forced it. It doesn't feel unstable, just stiff and really really sore. I know I need to go see my ortho to know for sure but it's the weekend and I'm just really worried that I may have retorn it. Has anyone retorn theirs and can tell me some symptoms or how they "knew" it was retorn? I'm just very stressed out and probably will be until I can go to the doctor. Thanks.

  • Why do people post questions on here that they could easily google and get the answer to?

    Not trying to be rude, but I really do wonder why people post questions on this site that it would be easier and quicker for them to just google? I just saw someone post 'How do I make chicken soup?' When I asked why she didn't just google it, I got a thumbs down and other people posted recipes. Is it just me or does it seem kinda lazy to expect other people to find the recipe and paste it for you instead of just googling it and having a million options pop up? I just don't understand the thinking. Thoughts?

  • Name of song w/lyrics 'this is what it looks like being the best'?

    Lyrics go 'This is what it looks like being the best. This is what it looks like a cut above the rest.' or something like that. It sounds like Linkin Park but couldn't find anything like that on any of the lyrics site. Just want to know who the band is and the name of the song.

  • Trouble with my television not able to play a DVD...?

    I think I may have accidentally pushed some buttons in the dark trying to change the screen size the other night but I've tried everything and can't figure it out. Previously, when I would hit the source button, it would go from AV1 (television) to a B channel to Air 3 Mono (which is static). The B channel is now missing. When I push source, it goes from AV1 to Air 3 Mono and the B channel is where the DVD menu would come up. I have a Samsung t.v. and DVD player and I have cable. Anyone have any ideas on how to find the lost B channel so I can see DVDs again?

  • Iphone or Blackberry? Benefits to both...?

    I'm finally getting rid of my crappy LG phone and want to get either an iphone or blackberry. I have AT&T so that's not a problem. I love the apps on the iphone but I use a PC at home (not that I'd even sync stuff to my blackberry that much probably) but what do you guys think? My friends who have blackberries say to get that, my friends with iphones think I should get an iphone. Someone please say something new and relevant that will help me make this decision once and for all. All answers are appreciated. Thank you!

  • Need some ideas on how to handle stupid people...?

    I love helping people on yahoo answers that have legitimate questions, but I get irritated by stupid people who ask something they're just too lazy to google themselves or too lazy to see if the question has already been asked. Anyone have any good comebacks to post that won't get me kicked off the site?

  • Where to rent an empty keg in Southbay?

    For a low budge movie shooting tomorrow, I need a keg, but since no one is gonna drink the beer, it'd be great if I could get a cheap one-- empty. The couple liquor stores I called either just won't do it, or don't have any coming back tomorrow that I can use. Anyone know where I can rent an empty keg super cheap? I'd appreciate it.

  • Illegal entry by a landlord in California?

    Please only answer this if you are very familiar with California law. Cali Civil Colde 1954 states that a landlord may enter the premises for an inspection, but here's what happened: The landlord gave everyone in my complex notice that they would be entering each unit between 9 and 5 over the course of three days. I called the asst. mgr and said I wanted to be present during the inspection and he told me he would come at 9am on Tuesday. Mon nite, I got home to find my deadbolt locked. I went down and asked the apt mgr if he entered my apt and he said no. When I told him the deadbolt was locked and I hadn't locked it, he admitted he had accidentally gone in with the inspectors but realized right away that he wasn't supposed to and came out. He admitted it was 'human error' and had an 'oh well' attitude about it. I'm embarrassed b/c personal items were laying about when these men entered my place. Do I have a case if I sue for trespassing? Code 1954 says they can enter for an inspection but b/c he ignored a reasonable request from me to do it while I was present and w/in the time frame of the scheduled inspections, did he actually violate 1954 or 1927. I definitely feel my privacy has been violated but don't know if the law would agree. Can anyone who knows the law give me advice please?

  • Donate unused contacts?

    I recently got Lasik done and have several unused, disposable contacts that I'd like to donate to a health organization if possible. Since they are technically prescriptions, I don't know if this is possible. I hate to see them go to waste because they were expensive and perhaps someone else with my prescription can use them. Any advice?

  • For people who live in Southbay area of L.A. only please-- refer a good therapist?

    Please only respond if you have had personal experience. I'd like to start seeing a therapist to work out some of my 'life issues' and want to find one around Redondo/Torrance/PV/Manhattan Beach area. I had one that I went to for about 6 sessions and she was terrible. When I told her I was worried that maybe I couldn't have children because of the risk of an upcoming surgery, she told me that dogs are better anyway. What an awful thing to say. Anyway, I want someone good so if you know anyone that you would recommend, please give me the name. If you don't have personal experience, please don't bother responding to this question. Thank you so much.
