Could you help my friend find a poem to comfort the family of a friend who has just died? The young man had gone through some bumps in his life and was just starting to turn it around, and then, tragically, he died an accidental death. She’s looking for something fairly short (under 10 lines), modern, nothing too literary, and something that celebrates the immortality of family love. I’ve looked on previous Ask MeFi posts, but most of the poems I see there are unsuitable for various reasons. She doesn’t want anything tailored to a funeral; she would like to send this poem directly to the family for them to reread in the coming months (perhaps put on a fridge to turn to for comfort).
Stupid math question: How to solve (not trail and error) a problem set up like: 2x*3y=278 if x+y=119 I am not sure what to call this type of problem so can not effectively google the steps. Not looking for an answer (per se) of the above problem, but the steps taken to solve it. [more inside]

Help me remember this movie: a stereotypical 80's comedy/horror that takes place during a party in a large house. One of the rooms has a giant swimming pool where couples keep sneaking away for some privacy. There's a monster at the bottom of the pool that can use the heads of previous victims to talk to and entrap new victims. I distinctly remember the pool being warm and somewhat dirty but each successive visitor just couldn't resist. [more inside]

A large hardcover collection of Little Nemo comic strips I bought cheaply turned out to be very valuable. What's the best way to preserve it so, if I decide to sell it, its still worth its full value? I live in a small apartment full of dust and bugs. I currently have it on a top bookshelf sitting in a plastic bag.
Yes, I've tried forcing an unexpected reboot, but I can't access Google, Gmail, or Twitter. Weirdly, Microsoft.com, Hotmail, Facebook, and Bing (and obviously AskMe!) all load with no problem whatsoever. And it's only affecting this computer (the only OS X machine) on the network! [more inside]
How common is human chimerism of the sort described in this Boing Boing post? What implications does the existence of chimerism have for DNA testing, especially with respect to the criminal justice system? Does it pose a practical limit on the usefulness of DNA evidence, or just a theoretical one? Has chimerism come up in any cases, or been considered as a problem in legal scholarship?

Someone vandalized my car, damaging my front bumper and writing obscenities on my car window with permanent marker. Because the damage is in two places on the car, my insurance company says it has to be two separate claims, and therefore two deductibles. I can't afford that, so I'm making a claim for the bumper, but I'll have to take care of the window myself. any suggestion on what will take off the permanent marker without damaging the window. It's the passenger side window, not the windshield if that matters.

NameThatNovel: NYC, A Messiah, Elvis Costello? I looked through http://www.elviscostello.info/wiki/index.php/References_in_Movies,_TV,_Books,_etc. but no luck! Read the book in 1994-96. Plot, as remembered, involves New York, a young (black?) gutterpunk messiah, maybe an anglo female lead, and the music of Elvis Costello. Literary, not pulpy. I don't think it's "The Story of My Life", but I could be wrong.
