I was watching a commercial for Boniva and they said don't take it if you can't sit or stand for 1 hour? I assume this is because the symptom is a sign of a higher level condition causing this. What medical condition would cause this? What would happen to a person afflicted with it if they did sit or stand for say 3 hours?2 AnswersRespiratory Diseases1 decade ago
Sometimes when I lie down in bed and stretch out, including my legs and stretching my toes upwards it's like something gets caught around the ankles of some of my toes (if that's what they're called). It's not excruciatingly painful but certainly uncomfortable and noticeable.
A manual inspect feels like something is out of place when this happens and it takes a bit of massaging and readjusting my resting position to alleviate the problem.
Does this phenomenon have a name besides "go see a doctor"?
I'm in my late 20s, I have no problems walking, no medical conditions (that I know of) and this issue does not arise during the normal course of my day nor dose it always happen when I lay down.3 AnswersPain & Pain Management1 decade ago
I heard this rumor mailmen/women can't talk to each other while on duty? Is there any validity to this?
This sounds like complete bull to me but thought I'd post it here in case someone could point me to some proof. Specifically the "rule" supposedly applies to mail carriers actively delivering letters, not employees working in a post office.5 AnswersOther - Politics & Government1 decade ago
Scenario: You and a bad guy are separated by 20 feet. You are on one side of a state boundary, he stands in another state. You shoot him and he dies.
Which state's laws would have jurisdiction governing this incident?
You produced a deadly weapon and used deadly force in the state you were standing. However it might be argued the death occurred in the state the BG was standing in.
Would it make a difference if you produced a weapon but did not shoot?
Would it make a difference if you shot the other guy, but not fatally?
Would neither state's laws apply since it was crossing state boundaries? If so then what happens?
To be clear, this question does not revolve around whether the action taken was justified but rather which states laws would determine justification or criminal culpability.6 AnswersLaw Enforcement & Police1 decade ago
I had a note on my apartment door when I came home that they would be conducting their "annual GMAC inspection" tomorrow. I have never heard of this. A web search doesn't seem yield and useful information on the subject.
I do plan on calling in the morning to find out but figured the interwebz might be able to answer my question before then.

Say you're running or office unopposed and no one votes for you. Do you still get the position? Does this depend on local, state or federal laws? For the sake of argument it's a non partisan position so there's no straight party voting to fall in your favor.
Obviously this is a purely hypothetical and very improbable question, but sometimes those are the best questions.8 AnswersElections1 decade ago
Consider this unlikely scenario: There are two presidential write in candidates with the same name. They are valid write in candidates in all 50 states. How would you distinguish which vote went to whom?
Are there even provisions for this, or is it more of a we've-never-had-to-worry-about-that type of thing?3 AnswersElections1 decade ago
Supposedly some conference of the world's elite that's been going on since the 50s? Why haven't I heard of this before? What is the purpose and effect of these meetings?2 AnswersGovernment1 decade ago
I'm looking to get a shotgun for skeet shooting and home defense. (Don't plan on hunting). I'm looking at a Mossberg 590 12 gauge. One of my big questions is what's the diff for barrel length, I've heard shorter is better for defense. It seemed to me longer is better for distance but then I heard that the barrel length doesn't really affect the ballistics that much when you skeet shooting?

Best food for geckos/lizards? I have some small ones that hang by my patio light, want to encourage them?
They eat the moths and bugs that gather around so i like them. I tried pulling some deli turkey meat to see, they eventually approached and licked, i guess that's not their cup of tea.
Something that would not gather the pests i like them destroying would be ideal5 AnswersZoology1 decade ago
