    I have a 1977 Kenner Baby Heartbeat doll with a stethoscope. The doll has a magnet in its chest. When the stethoscope is placed on the chest, it activates the battery and you can hear a "heartbeat." My husband opened the compartment where the wires for the stethoscope are located. The resistor was wrapped in masking tape and a little loose. After playing with the board and wires and securing them in place with tape, my husband got the stethoscope working. We could hear the heartbeat. The resistor turned out to be the problem. As he was trying to figure out how to fix it, one of the ends of the resistor broke off. My job is to get a new one. I think I need a 2.7 ohm 5 percent (don't know what that means). The resistor has four stripes evenly spaced apart. The stripes are red, violet, gold, gold. The violet is thinner than the rest, and the red one is closer to the end. Picture with brown background shows the resistor I have. I found a listing for a similar looking resistor on eBay. The stripes on it look to be red, violet, gold, silver. (The silver one could be gold, but it looks silver to me). The title of the listing is as follows: "2.7 Ohm Carbon Film Resistors - 1/4 Watt - 5 percent - 2R7." A second listing I found looks more like what I have. My question is, which of the two resistors should I get? Or am I wrong? If anyone in yahoo land understands what I'm rambling on about and can offer some advice/guidance, I would greatly appreciate it.

  • Weird question...?

    Does anyone know what kind of device or gadget (If it exists) allows you to replay/amplify a sound whenever it detects one. For instance if my phone buzzes or rings the device will detect the sound and play its own sound again.

Like I said, I want to buy a light off Amazon, but I live in South Africa and I know the voltages of the power sockets are different to that of the US. What I need to know is if I'm gonna have problems if I use this specific light with only an adapter for the plug and not a voltage converter.

    Best answer: Out of every 100 ways to use your laptop/phone to make some money:

    About 5 are legit, and decent options.
    About 20 are technically legit, but not really worth your trouble.
    About 75 are outright scams, or the functional equivalent of them.

    I have a telecommuting job for a company, so that's one obvious way.

    But if you're just looking for a decent site that reliably pays a bit of money without having to actually apply for a job, I'd recommend Amazon's MTurk, at www.mturk.com.

    Organizations post tasks that they can't automate and need human work (everything from taking surveys, to transcribing medical records, to picking speech out of an audio file). The tasks tell you how much they pay, what you're expected to do, and about how long it will take. You can work as many or as few as you want.

    Payments are approved within a couple of minutes to a couple of days, and are deposited as cash into an amazon payments account that you can send right to your bank.

    You won't make a killing, and it's no substitute for a regular job, but once you get up to speed with it you can probably make 5 or 6 bucks an hour or so.

    I know, I know, this is a bad question and everything but Im 18 and you can buy it in so many other provinces at my age. Not really looking for life advise, I was always tempted to smoke but I chose to vape instead (only 0mg nicotine) as a healthier option. Not trying to explain myself, but Im happy with my decision, especially considering the type of stuff people my age smoke...... Anyway, I don't know where to get it from, anyone got advise that doesn't involve being the sketchy guy asking people to buy it for me? Any places that will sell with no questions asked?

    Best answer: Modern standards call for better (thicker) insulation,
    and in many cases for polarized plugs.


    Keep in mind that in the case of AC power,
    "polarization" has Nothing to do with positive and negative;
    rather, it has to do with Safety.

    The idea is to minimize the chance of the chassis or frame of any appliance
    being at any electrical potential above "ground",
    to which the neutral wire is connected at the breaker box.

    Neutral is the wide plug prong or outlet slot.


    Some so-called "electricians" (minimum-wage "apprentices" hired by contractors) wire outlets wrong.
    For this reason it is a good idea to use an inexpensive "outlet tester"
    to check every outlet to make sure it is wired correctly,
    and if any aren't, they should be corrected Immediately.

    Best answer: The radiation given off will not be able to penetrate through the drawer so your clothes are safe.

    If you’re still worried, then move the clothes or the receiver box further away. By doubling the distance, you reduce the exposure by 4 times.

    It’s radio waves which is harmless. The reason a laptop causes infertility (in men only) is because the crotch area gets warm and sperm likes to live in a certain temperature. That’s why the scrotum goes up and down depending on the temperature. Too cold, it goes up to be closer to the body. Too hot and it drops to be further away from the body. With a laptop sitting on a guy’s lap, it gets warm and while sitting down, the scrotum can only stretch so far. With heat everywhere, the sperm dies.
