my brother Steve and I both have neck pains. We're considering buying the My Pillow we saw at Wal-Mart yesterday. The problem is it costs $60.00. Has anybody bought this thing
and tried it out? What do you think? Please answer ASAP. Thanks.

Can anybody who's seen the film please tell me what the actual dinner was in the movie My Dinner With Andre? Do you see the protagonists actually order and eat their food? What was the food? Do they comment on it? Does it look nice? Thanks a lot.

I'm going to the Presidential Inauguration this month, in Washington DC, and I'd like to solicit tips and tricks to make the day go smooth for me. The last time I was in DC was 8 years ago, and it was for a day trip. What to do? What to avoid? What is security going to be like, will they have food and drink for sale, etc. If you went in 2009, what was it like? How did you survive the day?
Also, I have written both of my Senators for tickets, and have heard nothing back from them, so I'm going under the assumption that I didn't get any. Thus, I will probably be watching the ceremony on the National Mall. If I end up here, where's the best place to stand? I'm flying in from Seattle for this, I'm not missing it! [more inside]

What's the name of that song that you play on your running playlist that makes you push yourself further? You know the one - you're jogging at a decent, steady pace and then it comes on and mentally you go "Oh, YES!" and suddenly everything seems to get a lot more awesome and you are running full pelt with a huge grin on your face.

In the 70's, a film was made about aliens settling their feuds on Earth. These beings would take human form and then shoot out their differences on neutral ground. There were only two special effects involved; The destruction of their opponent's corpses [ a simple bonfire] and the pre-showdown identification of the same with special sun-glasses [suck on it 'theylive'] . What drew me in as a child [aside from the weirdly bland fires] was the relationship between the alien and the human girlfriend he hid behind. Without throwing in a spoiler, the last shot haunts me to this day.
I ask because I am working on a script that leans on this work and I will be asked where my inspiration comes from. Plus I would like to see it again.

Quick question...if I purchase a domain name (ie greaselightning.com) through Wordpress, can I transfer it to a different cms (?) in the future if i am not happy with wordpress' performance? For instance could I go to Joomla and take my name with me or does wordpresss somehow own it? This and any other tips you have for a new website creator/user would be greatly appreciated.

We just bought a condo (with a large closet in the master) in a ski resort town about 1 1/2 hours from our home. we use it on weekends and for vacation. I have a question about keeping clothes there or packing clothes each time we go.
I thought originally it would make sense to keep clothes there but am finding it kind of makes me crazy.
It seems like unless I remember what is there, I am forever guessing wrong. For example, last time I was there I was with only one pair of underwear because I thought i had some there.
Anyone have any advice for me that will simplify my clothing life?
It almost seems easiest to just pack all of what i need for the weekend.
We go about 2 weekends per month and I visit random times alone during the month.

My company has posted my photo along with those of other employees on its website. I'm not comfortable with having my picture online, in any context, and would like to ask that it be removed. I'll ask politely, but if my boss insists that it stays, I'd like to know what my rights are. I wasn't asked for permission. I'm in BC, so I guess I'm wondering particularly about BC laws and/or precedents. Please advise, so I know where I stand!

it also makes this constant tapping noise, like the sound of a tap dripping. (which it never used to make)
does anyone know what i can do to make my laptop find my external or fix it?

Our non-profit effort started just months ago, the secretary on the board of directors is a complete disaster. How do I get rid of her?
I am the president, all the paperwork is in my name. We meet every week or so as we are writing the by-laws. The secretary insists on using a tape recorder and the minutes contain miconstrued gossip.
Do I need a lawyer? We are in Florida.

- Anyone had any luck in (re-)selling internet access through their wireless routers. The program LinSpot
seems like the perfect answer but alas, Mac only. I live in a military barracks where people are constantly coming and going, where they charge $5 an hour
for WiFi, I would like to do it for about a buck a day. Right now I give it away but sometimes it just gets too slow.
