I am a former wildland firefighter from Texas, now working in the disaster recovery field.
How does the phrase "Let the good times roll" translate to Farsi? I'm trying to figure out if the words "saa'at" and "khoob" would be used to mean "time" and "good", respectively. With the way sentences are spoken in Farsi, I reckon that "time" would precede "good" in the sentence structure? Thank you for any help you can give.2 AnswersLanguages9 years ago
Without fail every week, one or two local commercials will interrupt "The Soup" on E! Right in the middle of a clip or one of Joel McHale's jokes, suddenly we will see a commerical or two. Does anyone else experience this? It occurs about half-way through the episode.1 AnswerComedy10 years ago
Although some blogs advocate affixing the envelope to a brick or weighted box, it won't work these days: According to Post Office Domestic Mail Manual code 8.4.6, "BRM may not be used for any purpose other than that intended by the permit holder, even when postage is affixed. In cases where a BRM card or letter is used improperly as a label, the USPS treats the item as waste."
Perhaps you send it back empty? Shred the credit card offers and return them? Send a competitor's junk mail to them?4 AnswersOther - Politics & Government1 decade ago

While looking at rental properties, one listing had the following restriction: "At least one tenant must be 55 or older." Seems like an arbitrary and ageist policy.

Many Christian posters in R&S state that Catholic observances such as Ash Wednesday and Lent are not written in the Bible. Reading the Book of Esther, you can find people using ashes in repentance. Also, it would seem that the 40 days in Lent are reflective of the Temptation of Christ.
Considering that the Trinity, sola scriptura, and Satan being the Garden of Eden snake are not stated in the Bible, Ash Wednesday and Lent seem very Biblical in comparison.10 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago

In the great debate between normal food consumption and veganism, constituents of the first group claim that there are deficiencies of calcium, B12, and other important nutrients in the diets of vegans and vegetarians. I drink Silk light chocolate soy milk and checked out the nutrition information (found here: http://www.thedailyplate.com/nutrition-calories/fo... ) and noticed that there are many nutrients in it, specifically calcium and B12. I am curious if they are derived from plant or animal sources.4 AnswersVegetarian & Vegan1 decade ago
Bobby Hill was wearing oven mitts and baking with Peggy when Hank walked in and found him (gasp!) baking. I have searched through 'King of the Hill' episode listings looking for this particular one, but apparently Bobby baking was only a sub-plot and I am having difficulty locating the episode.1 AnswerOther - Television1 decade ago
