I'm trying to relocate a quiz I took a couple of years ago. All I remember about it is that it posed different scenarios and you had to pick a certain outcome that changed some view of your sense of "self". I don't think this is an exact quote, but an example would be something like: You got into a fatal car accident. The doctors can either A. Put your brain in a new body, where you will retain all sense of self except that you will look different or B. Assure you that when you die, you will be reincarnated as a butterfly but it will be your soul.
Based on your answer, it would tell you that you are more concerned with the preservation of your body or mind or sense of being, etc.
Any ideas? Thanks!1 AnswerMental Health8 years ago
So I'm trying the Kipkay laser project, and I can't seem to get my laser diode out of the Axiz housing. all that's left is the diode and the housing around it from the module. I recently had an idea to heat the thing up, but I'm wondering if there is anything within a laser diode that could potentially catch fire and explode, or something along those lines.
Any ideas about this or alternate ways to get the diode out? Thanks.1 AnswerEngineering1 decade ago
President Obama recently appointed Sonia Sotomayor to the Court. There is only one president who served at least a full four-year term and didn't get the opportunity to make any Supreme Court nominations. This is not including presidents who died before they could serve for four years. Name this president.1 AnswerGovernment1 decade ago
I was trying to light a light bulb by using water to complete the circuit. I hooked up the negative power supply to the negative terminal on the bulb, and threw the positive in the water. Then I ran a wire from the negative terminal on the bulb into the water. Nothing. The water was warm salt water. There was maybe a centimeter of wire exposed while in the water. What can I do to get the circuit going. (btw, its a 500 mL beaker hold the water.)4 AnswersOther - Science1 decade ago
I have an LXD75 Meade Telescope. The lens is 48" I believe...I'm bringing it someplace where there are no city lights soon, and I want to know what I'll be able to see.
Since I live in a heavily populated area, I have never been able to see more than Jupiter and 4 of it's moons. But it just looks like 5 dots in the sky.
However, if I get away from city lights, how well would I be able to see celestial things?4 AnswersAstronomy & Space1 decade ago
I'm looking into buying a new computer. Here are the specs I'm looking for:
PC Desktop with three Hard Drives. One hard drive being this one just put into the new tower, a second one running vista with 160 gigs of memory, and a recovery drive of 200 gigs. 4 Gigs of RAM.
Close to top of the line graphics card (nvidia of course, just not sure with kind.) Really good sound card. (No idea what kind). Really good processor (Not sure which kind: open to suggestions).
2 Disk Drives. DVD/Cd writer and cd-rom drive. Floppy drive. Multiple SD readers.
Two monitor ports on the back, at least 6 USB ports.
I know that'd be A LOT...But roughly how much? And if anyone could find a place that sells a computer JUST like that or pretty dang close, please tell.2 AnswersOther - Computers1 decade ago
So last night, I downloaded the 2.0 firmware from modmyifone.com
Halfway booting it onto my phone, itunes said there was an error...so I restored my phone to 1.1.4 When I was loading the backup onto it, i accidentally unplugged the phone. So I did ANOTHER restore.
when everything was done, I lost 80 pictures, and all of my 140+ contacts. I need those contacts back and do not have the time to go through and reenter them.
How can I get them back?2 AnswersCell Phones & Plans1 decade ago

I need to know this soon.
I live in Stockton, California. In my house, there is a window facing West. For 7 out of the past 10 years I have been able to see a really bright star through the window. I can see it from Dec.-Mar. I need to know how the stars rotate, why I can sometimes see it and why I cannot sometimes see it, and which star it is. I see it at about 3 A.M. I haver a feeling it is Venus, but am not too sure when Venus rises. (I think venus rises at 4:30.)4 AnswersAstronomy & Space1 decade ago
Someone in my son's class wrote their name on the radiator. The teacher threatened to give EVERYONE Saturday detention if that person didn't fess up. Isn't it illegal to prosecute someone whom is not guilty, even if you're not sure? Isn't it innocent until proven guilty? If this is so, please give me a link as to where in the constitution it says this.10 AnswersLaw & Ethics1 decade ago
