Mrs & I are not fans of the Harry Potter books or movies, but this last movie is getting rave reviews so please advise us if we will enjoy it without knowing much of what went before. We know it is about the struggle of good vs evil. We enjoy other fantasy movies (LOTR, Avatar etc.). Does it start with a synopsis?

Why does the New York Times write "unemployment rose to 10% from 5%" rather than "unemployment rose from 5% to 10%"? I trip over this formulation and have to go back and reread the clause every time. Is the goal to increase clarity of avoid confusion in some way? How so? This doesn't seem to be standard American English, and it's certainly not usual in the UK. [more inside]
Consider two rings that are intertwined. (These lie in 3-dimensional space, but when you draw it on paper it looks like a venn diagram.) In 3-dimensional space they cannot be unlinked. The questions is, if you had one more dimension, can you unlink them?

My wife broke the hole (I don't know how else to say it) off of her key for our 2005 Jeep Liberty. A replacement costs $200. The perfect answer would involve some kind of leather pouch that the key would fit in which would then attach to a key ring. I'm open to other ideas though. The better ideas will be much less than $200.

Where can I go fly a kite in or near Oakville, Ontario? I'd like to take my kids out to fly a kite. I've tried it at several fields and parks near my home, but they tend to be surrounded by too many tall trees to keep a consistent wind, and it's been frustrating for all of us. Is there a "go to" place in the area for kite enthusiasts?

I have a logo in both .ai and .eps formats. It looks mostly right when placed into a comp, but part of it has a solid white background behind it. However, when I directly open either of the files in Illustrator, a large portion of the image is missing. It seems like the portion that's missing may well be the section with the white background.

I'm looking for a kids joke that some how involves Wonder Woman's body, possibly as the punch line. All that is remembered is the following: "Knock Knock? Who's there? Wonder Woman's Body!" and laughter ensues. It was told by my sister-in-law in the 1980s when she was a wee one, so it might just be little kid humor, but I'm hoping there might be more to this joke.
