• How can I get rid of a virus on my smartphone that causes the keyboard to disappear and reappear randomly while I m trying to type?

    I had considered resetting the phone to factory settings, but I don t want to lose all my music, pictures, etc. I don t think it has a removable SD card.

  • What is the specific mechanism that causes death in hanging?

    Not to be morbid, but the last time I checked, a broken bone was not fatal, and neither was a severed spinal chord (though it would cause quadriplegia) - both of which would occur in a hanging. And yet hanging is almost always instantly fatal. Why is this?

  • Do they make these".wav players" anymore?

    In the late 90's, when the Internet was young and we had Windows 98, I remember going on this one Star Wars page, I think, and some hacker had created a .wav file that you could click on and a little 1-inch "play" bar would pop up that I think just had a "play" and "stop" button on it, and when you pressed... show more

I have never seen such a bar since then. Obviously technology has advanced, but is there anything that has taken its place? Can people still make little ".wav bars" like that? What kind of program made those?

    Within the last month I viewed a short Star Wars cartoon (recently made), but I can't find it now. It's not in my "watched" list. I've tried plugging clue words into the search, to no avail. It had the TFA characters in it - there was a scene where the young heroes were in the side of a building (I think they had blown a hole in it while fighting - Kylo Ren, I think? Not sure), then from above, in a small vessel, Old Luke Skywalker appears, the heroes throw him a lightsaber, and I think he connects it end-to-end with his own lightsaber and throws it back. It was pretty cool but I don't know the name. Has anyone else seen this video or know how I can find it? Thanks!

Is there any way to avoid this? It seems that if I used a non-stick cooking spray on the basket, it would be rinsed off by the hot oil. Any suggestions?

  • Question about "It's A Wonderful Life"?

    I was just watching "It's A Wonderful Life", and I noticed a few things - there was a cop and a taxi driver named "Bert and Ernie". Were the Sesame Street characters named after them? Secondly, I noticed that Bailey Park was a neighborhood built on a cemetery. Was the movie "Poltergeist" based on that?

    I have been searching unsuccessfully for a children's book for decades. I remember reading it as a child in the mid-70's. I don't have an author or an ISBN, but the title is "Lucy Didn't Listen". It was one of my favorite books. It was about a little girl who daydreamed in class and didn't pay attention to the teacher's instructions in class, so she would miss out on activities or get left behind in class or miss assignments. Does anybody else remember this book? I have searched online for it, and even searched the Library of Congress, which is supposed to have every book ever written, to no avail. Can anyone help?

I tried looking up the symptoms on WebMD, but the closest one it sounds like is Scabies, and I'm not even sure about that.

  • What can the police do if I discover my 12-year old sexting with an 18-YO?

    I discovered this tonight, then I told him off, blocked him and immediately uninstalled Skype from my phone and computer (the program she was using to talk to him). Unfortunately there was no easy way to save or print out the text of the conversation I could use as proof. Can the police do anything?

    This might seem obvious to some, but a toddler doesn t just pull a gun out of mom s purse and pull the trigger. It doesn t work that way.

    This might seem obvious to some, but a toddler doesn t just pull a gun out of mom s purse and pull the trigger. It doesn t work that way. In addition to being loaded, ALL handguns, whether revolvers or automatics, must be 1. ******, and 2. safety off before the trigger can even be pulled. So only one of 3 scenarios had to be true before this could happen: 1. The mom kept a loaded, ****** gun with the safety off in her purse. Not likely. 2. The toddler ****** the gun himself and removed the safety before firing. Also not likely, because it would imply the toddler knew exactly what he was doing and had the finger/hand strength to cock the gun. And no witnesses saw him do this. 3. Or a third, more conspiratorial explanation, a third party, a gun control supporter, saw the gun in the purse, ****** and removed the safety, then handed it to the toddler when the mom wasn t looking, ssolely for the purpose of creating a tragedy that could be politically exploited. However, store cameras should have caught such a person on video. Are the details of this case available to the public? Because I d sure like to know the answer..."

    A few months ago my daughter lost her iPhone 5c in the woods. We had it deactivated after that. Just a few days ago, we found it again - someone had found it right away and it was safe and unharmed. We have been trying to reactivate it, but it keeps asking for my daughter's Apple ID and password. She just changed them, but it doesn't want the current ID/password, it wants the old one that she doesn't remember. Is there a way we can reset the phone to its factory settings and wipe out all the old information? I notice there is a tiny pinhole on the side of the phone - can we do it by depressing that? I'd hate to throw away a $300 phone, so we're trying everything we can.
