My mother's car was robbed yesterday in Savannah, GA. Thieves made off with the originals of her Social Security card, the Social Security card of my recently deceased father, her bank debit/ATM card, her original driver's license, credit cards, documents with her address on it, business cards, and a lot of cash. She had the police involved & a report has been filed. She has canceled the credit cards and will be talking to her bank. Thankfully her checkbook wasn't taken. What else can she do, or can I help with, to prevent identity theft now that criminals have her SSN, my dad's SSN, and her drivers license and address? [more inside]

Movie ID: Two women in a parking lot have an extreme case of road rage, started by one of the women hitting the other woman's car with the door as she opened it. They proceeded to slowly escalate the altercation, and it ends with them trying to ram each other head on, but their cars are so messed up they that couldn't move quickly enough to do any real damage. I believe this ends up being some sort of dream/flashback/fantasy sequence.

What is the difference between a Master of Business License and a LLC in Washington State? Which one would be more appropriate for a freelance artist/product designer/jeweler to have? I need to have a Tax ID number for my business, is that the same as a UBI number?

Arabic Script ID / Translate: I have two painted pages
from what appear to be old Arabic script books (though I am not sure the language). I bought these in Syria in 1992. Can anyone help ID the story from the images, and help with translation of the text? One picture would just appear to have an artist's name, while the other looks to be part of a story. I don't think the two are necessarily from the same book. What isn't clear to me is whether the images were just painted on old pages, or if the story might be related to the image.

ID this movie? 70s or early 80s. drama about teenagers becoming rebellious... i think it was a story about falling in with the wrong crowd and running wild and then that wildness getting out of control... lots of conflict between teens and parents...
i can only remember a few things:
-- a group of teenage characters spend the night in a half-constructed house and have sex in sleeping bags. one of them loses their virginity that night, i think.
-- at the end of the movie, the kids have either locked their parents in the school (maybe at a PTA mtg?) or the kids hav been locked in the school... can't remember which... i just remember someone trying to get out and realizing the doors are chained shut... and the cops come and there is a mini-riot.
that's all i remember... any ideas?

Is it true that when I get a NY state non-driver ID card, they won't ask me to prove my street address? According to the DMV's list
, my passport plus my social security card are enough to get me a state ID. Neither of those two things shows a street address (and I have no proof of my address, and I've never had a driver's license or non-driver ID). Does this mean I could just write my address (or for that matter, any NY state address!) on the form at the DMV?

Can you identify this painting
(164KB, flickr) for a friend? She's had it as wallpaper for awhile but doesn't know where she got it from. It looks Picasso-esque to me but I don't think it is him, not that I've got a great knowledge of his work.

Help me find a durable retractable ID badge holder. This
is similar to what I'm looking for, but the problem is that I only need ONE and not one hundred of them.
I've been searching for quite a while now and can't seem to find anywhere that will sell just one. I'm having no problems finding them in bulk, but that isn't what I need.
I have an ID badge holder now but it has a nylon cord and I've already broken two of them. I want something more durable than the cheap nylon freebie ones.
