Do you believe in life after (first) love?

My first boyfriend/first love and I recently broke up after nearly four years together. I know this was the right decision, but I feel like I'll never feel this way about anyone else ever again. I realize that sounds dramatic, silly, and naive, but I'd really like to hear from the perspective of someone who's been through it that, yes, life does go on (and maybe get better, in a different way) after a first love.

The opposite of xenophobia, but in Mexican Spanish?

Mexicofilter: I overheard a bit of Mexican slang a while back, and I'm trying to recall it. The word I'm looking for basically means "preference for North American and European trends/culture/identity/technology and hostility/fear of/towards things from Mexico". Of course, it ends in "ismo". Any ideas?

37.5mm threads, 37mm filter, adapter needed?

Just a quick dumb question I can't find answered anywhere else: I have a videocamera with 37.5mm lens threads. A filter I want to buy online has 37mm threads (and that spec seem more common in general). There's a 37.5mm-to-37mm stepdown ring available elsewhere, but it costs twice as much as the filter. Is that 0.5mm really enough to need the stepping ring?

Typing problems on only one hand

A friend is a writer and journalism major who types a lot every day. Yesterday they noticed that the right hand is mis-hitting some of the keys, causing spelling errors. No other problems or symptoms, and right hand only. My friend just turned 57, and is physically active and fit- softball, yoga, walking. Curious what could be causing this very annoying problem

Good exterminator in Twin Cities

Anyone have a recommendation for an exterminator in the Twin Cities area (St. Paul specifically)? Orkin looks like the main game in town, but I'm wary of simply going with the biggest option around just because it's simple. Reviews/defense of Orkin's service are welcome, too! This is for insects, not rodents.

Changing airlines at JFK

I'm a bit of a travel noob, so be gentle :) Flying in February on JetBlue from Syracuse to JFK, then taking a Virgin Atlantic flight to LAX for five days. My problem is that I should arrive at JFK around 7:45am, and my Virgin Atlantic flight is scheduled to leave at 9:05am. How screwed am I if I decide to go with one piece of baggage along with my carryon and laptop bag and hope not to miss the flight. Should I just pack well and go with the carryon?
