    My fiance is American and I'm Canadian. We're getting married at the end of June, and don't know where to register for gifts that both our American and Canadian guests can use. Any suggestions?

  • Is anyone else sick of 'chat speak'?

    "o i knw wat u mean knw." (translation "Oh, I know what you mean now.") I saw this as an answer here in Yahoo! Answers, and was honestly confused that someone out there typed this, looked it over and said to themselves that it was the best they could do.

    "o i knw wat u mean knw." (translation "Oh, I know what you mean now.") I saw this as an answer here in Yahoo! Answers, and was honestly confused that someone out there typed this, looked it over and said to themselves that it was the best they could do. Was the use of "chat" speak and poor spelling an effort to save time? Was the user answering the question via text message on their phone and being charged by the letter? I know that Yahoo! has provided a spell check option (the little red underline on misspelled words), so the user in question had to ignore a multitude of red underlines to get this masterpiece out. So my Question, "Is anyone else sick of 'Chat Speak'? is a simple enough question, but I'd like to add "What can be done about it?"

    As a Canadian citizen, how long am I legally allowed to stay in the United States without a visa before returning to Canada? Also, is there any way to get this duration extended?

  • A simple riddle...?

    What am I? "He who builds me will sell me. He who buys me probably won't use me. He who uses me will never see or feel me."

  • FIFA World Cup - Penalties for the acting?

    Every notice how soccer players are made of glass? One touch and they writhe and moan on the grass. A trainer comes over and they seemingly bound to their feet, completely healed and ready to play. Should there be a mandatory penalty, say they're benched for 10 minutes before being allowed back on the field? Do you think this might end the... show more

A trainer comes over and they seemingly bound to their feet, completely healed and ready to play. Should there be a mandatory penalty, say they're benched for 10 minutes before being allowed back on the field? Do you think this might end the melodramtic falls and over-acted pain dance every player seems to enjoy while on the ground?

  • A question for the ladies out there...who would you choose?

    Let's say there were identical twins (who you like the looks of and have similiar personalites), with identical jobs. Twin A buys a Humvee, but pays $800/month in payments. Twin B buys a Saturn car, and pays for it completely. Who would you rather be with? The twin with the flashy wheels? Or the twin who has $800 more a month that could be... show more

  • Do we need Daylight Savings Time?

    Is there anyone who really benefits these days from changing our clocks twice a year? I know that originally it was done for the farmers (extra hour of daylight to work in). Most farmers say that it doesn't help them as the animals (cows, chicken, etc.) take even longer to adapt (1 month or so) to the new time schedule (feeding, milking and... show more

Most farmers say that it doesn't help them as the animals (cows, chicken, etc.) take even longer to adapt (1 month or so) to the new time schedule (feeding, milking and such). So do we even need Daylight Savings any more?
