• What in the name of all that is aesthetically pleasing AND easy to read has happened to Yahoo Answers?

    I'm offline for a day and come back to what looks like a dog's breakfast, a near indecipherable mess of different sized type faces & colors and jumbled "text"... Is there anyway of un- or redoing this?

  • What are "kunnezaadjes" (or "kunnelzaadjes") in English?

    All I have been told is that it's a kind of seed put on "German bread". (It's not apparently caraway or cumin.) I have tried several on line translators to NO avail. I put this here because I think the chance of a Dutch-speaking person seeing it here is much greater than if I posted it in the Languages section.

  • Why can't I SELECT the "Best Answer" to my OWN question (in Pets/ Cats)?

    My question is now in voting. I can't access it to select the best answer (and there IS one I think merits that). Why isn't this possible??? It was MY question, after all... In fact, what I can do is vote (once), like any other reader. (I wasn't notified of the possibility to extend or anything else, for that matter!)

    These woman are not clients or trainees at his place of employment, so he is not required to wine and dine them. They are women he knows through working (not old school chums, ex-girlfriends, friends of his wife or the like).

  • Does the Koran specifically state that anyone not a Muslim is an "infidel" and should be killed?

    I have been told that the Koran quite specifically says if you're not a Muslim -- or not a "good" Muslim, that's to say following ALL aspects of the Koran to the letter (no interpretation allowed!) -- then you're an "infidel" and all infidels must either convert to "the one true religion" or die.

I find this hard to believe -- which is why I'm seriously asking this here. Is there such a thing as a moderate Muslim, who allows for the coexistence of other religious beliefs or is everyone meant to convert?

In essence the Associate Press story says a dozen or so protesters openly carried weapons, including an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, to a convention center in Phoenix, Arizona, where President Obama was finishing the last of a four-day tour of the western states. (They were demonstrating their "right to bear arms".) My question is: whatever your politics & feelings about the second amendment, how do you feel about civilians walking around openly with deadly weapons -- and especially in the vicinity of the U.S. President (or any other public official)?

    The cat was castrated when he was around one year old. As he gets older (he's now 13), he gets more "aggressive" with his spraying. I used to think it was because he was scared, ie saw another cat outside, was marking territory...BUT he specifically sprays MY stuff (photographs, books) seemingly when I'm not fast enough getting his food or letting him out (he has a clean cat box, plenty of fresh dry food & clean water) OR (especially) if I leave him inside for long periods of time (more than 4 hours). His sister does NONE of the above. A cat door is out of the question (there are more than a dozen cats in the neighborhood; the house would be Grand Central Station!). Is there anything I can spray to discourage his spraying? Right now I'm putting them both outside when I have to be gone for most of the day. This is the only (of many) cat(s) I have had to do this.

She's very outgoing, the "life of the party" (without being vulgar), & has many friends, of both sexes. (My cousin is also friendly but a little more reserved.) She travels some for work, sometimes with a colleague (male or female), he doesn't. She also occasionally has drinks after work with colleagues (but it's never late). They "seem" happy but lately I've been getting a weird "vibe" around her. They're heading for their 40s; what about mid-life crisis? My cousin is a real sweetheart; he would never cheat. I'm not so sure about her. What about that saying, "Once a cheater, always a cheater."? I know it's their marriage but I worry for my cousin. He's one of the "nice" guys!
