  • If there is a 2.2% chance of X occuring, what is the probability of observing X once in 2 trials?

    I assumed it would be .022^2 but wouldn't this be the probability of observing X twice in two trials?

  • How long will it take to pass a urine drug screen?

    I used to smoke a moderate amount of marijuana but only when I played music with my band. Objectively, this is 2-3 x's per week approximately 1/2 a bowl each instance. I recently was offered an internship at a company which drug tests. I don't think I'll actually have to take the urine test for another two weeks. I'm in really good shape (about 6% body fat), weight train and run daily plus I consume a lot of diuretics (e.g., coffee, alcohol, nicotine). I just stopped Monday. Will I be clean in time? What can I do other than buy my own home tests, exercise, and drink fluids?

  • I can't seem to increase bulk?

    I've been lifting for about 6 months. I've significantly increased the amount I lift and definition but I can't seem to increase size. I use protein powder and creatine. I do 3 sets of 8 reps. I lift 4-5 times/week and run 4 miles every night. People have suggested I increase caloric intake but I don't want to get fat.

  • How can I tell "what's my league"?

    I'm 27, just broke up with my fiancee of 6 years. Now I can't tell what's my league. Please don't answer "women look at you" or something equally as teen-magazine trite. I'm not an idiot. I want a way of quantifying my "eligibility" that way I can appropriately judge a counterpart.

  • 03 Civic compressor making clicking noises.?

    Compressor is making clicking noises (cycling on and off quickly). This especially happened when low RPM. It stopped working the other day when it was really hot. Sometimes the compressor would only engage when I revved the engine. My dad charged it and put oil in it. It blows cold now but it still makes the clicking noise occassionally when at low RPM. I understand compressors cycle on and off but this happens maybe 2-3 or even 5 times per second It's supposedly under 30 day warranty with a used car dealer (not sure how useful this warranty is). What do you think is wrong with it?

  • Why doesn't Honda use functional factory CD players?

    Love my '03 civic dx but the CD player rarely plays anything but pressed, store bought CDs. Yes, I've tried burning at lower speed and made certain that I wasn't burning MP3 CDs. I've been shopping around for an aftermarket CD player but so few of them fit this car well. Considering this car's market (young adults, primarily), why wouldn't they spend the extra $10 to put in a FUNCTIONING cd player? Or at least make it easier on us buying aftermarket cd players.

    Really makes me wonder what other corners they cut.

  • I'm just learning to drive a stick shift?

    I did fine last night while practicing without much traffic but this morning, I stalled it twice on the way to work. Starting in first and shifting to second is pretty rough. How hard is this on the clutch?

  • Do you ever feel like people are figments?

    Sometimes I feel like people are no more complex than the AI on video games. I want more meaningful friendships.

  • What color of contacts should I get?

    My eyes are dark green with a small amount of brown near the pupil. I don't want to change my eye color per se (e.g., green --> brown, green --> blue) rather I just want to lighten the green and add hazel. Basically, I just want to make my eyes look brighter. Some have suggested I try tinted contacts but these are usually tinted blue and I don't want my eyes to be tinted blue. I've tried several acuvue colors (jade green, hazel) but the difference btwn. my natural color and the contacts is just barely perceptible.

    Any suggestions?

  • Do I have the right to defend myself with deadly force? What would happen if it came to that?

    In the past 2 years, we've been robbed twice and my fiancee was mugged outside our house. I recently purchased a gun and am wondering what would happen if I were confronted with a situation in which someone broke into my house. Should I shoot them? What would happen if they were killed? Obviously, I would only do so if they broke through our bedroom door.

    Apparently, KY has adopted the "stand-your-ground" law, which states that I don't have to retreat if confronted on my property. The law appears to state that even if the perpetrator trespasses, I have the right to shoot. Is this right? See this link:

  • Can viruses be "killed" with hand sanitizer (alcohol based) and Lysol?

    I'm really confused about this. I've heard that hand santizer only works for bacteria (dehydration) but I just read that HIV viral can be distroyed also by dehydration and Lysol advertises that it kills "99.99% of bacteria and viruses including the flu and..." If viruses aren't alive (I know the academic community still debates this) then how CAN they be destroyed?

  • Lawn mower starts, then shuts off after primed fuel is burned.?

    I've changed the gas in it. It was about 1-1.5 months after mowing last when I tried to start it. One guy says it's old fuel in carb. Could this be (even though only 1-1.5 months)? Secondly, can I clean it myself with just some carb cleaner.

  • Why are instruments on Ebay so expensive? Why do people still shop there?

    Other than rare items, why do people shop on Ebay? I usually browse the musical instrument section but never buy anything because I could get the same items at the local music stores used for FAR cheaper (and most of them, I know make btw. 20-50% profit on used items because I've sold used stuff there). In some cases, (after including shipping) they sell items items for 10% less than what they cost NEW! Why would anyone want to deal with the risks of buying on Ebay, buying items that are (presumably) flawed and lacking even factory warranty when they're only saving a couple $'s (in some cases)?

    I've only once gotten what I consider to be a decent deal on Ebay...and that was with electronics (a risky purchase).

    Personally, I think it's the thrill of the hunt. People like that tension of possibly not winning an item. It makes them appreciate their purchase more if they have to work for it (cognitive dissonance and such). What do you think?

  • I'm looking for the best handgun I can get for under $300.?

    For home defense. I don't need a .357 magnum or a desert eagle. Should I buy used? If so, where should I buy? Local gun store? Gun show? I don't want to buy something that's been used in a murder.

  • In Powerpoint 2007, how can I prevent text that's not supposed to appear from being opaque?

    Please excuse the awkward phrasing. I have bullet points posed as questions. I don't want the answers to appear until I click the mouse. This works in powerpoint 2003 but in 2007, the answers are opaque but visible.

    Example: What is x? (visible)

    x is blah blah (semi-visible--words are blurred)

    Example of what I want: -What is x? (visible)

    - x is blah blah (invisible until I click).

  • I can't connect to certain friends on playstation network,..anyone else had this problem?

    I've always been able to connect to them in the past. Seems like it happened since the last PS update. Neither COD modern warfare nor world at war work...I haven't tried other games. I've checked my network settings...good high speed wired connection, nat type 2, etc. Has anyone else had this problem? How can I fix it?

  • How can I attenuate the sound of my band without cutting out the higher frequencies by wearing earplugs?

    I play in a band and it's really freaking loud. I'd guess it's about 100+ db. I've tried wearing the traditional ear plugs but those cut nearly everything out except the lower frequencies. I've tried those sound attenuating ear muffs...those are better but they aren't effective enough.

    What's a cheap solution? Maybe feeding the recording into earbuds under the sound attenuating ear muffs?

  • Air conditioner not running but blower/heater runs. What could be the problem?

    We left for about 1 week. I turned the thermostat to about 80. It's been hot here all week though (mid 90's). When we got back it was well above 85 inside. The blower seems to be working, since air is circulating through the vents. But the air conditioner unit itself will not turn on. It's hot to touch but the fans aren't turning. My dad cleaned it about 1 month ago. I've tried resetting the breakers...still nothing.
