How far to that horizon over there?

Imagine I'm standing on a boat in the middle of the ocean with clear skies all around and good eyesight: how far is the surrounding horizon? And, bonus question, when I look up, how far away are the furthest clouds? (I assume it would depend on how high the clouds are but I'm still completely ignorant of how much difference that would make so any help would be great.)

How can I help my friend?

My friend has no insurance and very limited funds, and is having some pretty funky health problems. He needs low-cost to no-cost medical attention in Oklahoma. Any ideas? So far, I've come up with this. Any ideas? I know that he *could* go to an ER, but being saddled with a $3000 dollar bill is not going to help him out of his financial problems anytime soon.

I want to keep on learning...

In the past I have worked as a staff writer for a newspaper. The process of learning about something first-hand, then distilling it into everyday language was something that was totally enjoyable. It was so cool to be continually kinesthetically learning from "the horses mouth," so to speak. Print journalism has reduced its numbers drastically, and jobs are now few and far between. Are there any other vocations you can think of that would let someone actually go out in the field and talk to people and get their story then share it with others? How about jobs that let you learn all the time?

Help me find an obscure movie song

Asking for a friend: I saw a movie once, but I can remember neither the name nor the theme. At a guess I would say it was five to six years ago, but it was not in theater and so could have been a bit older. Toward the end of the movie, perhaps just before the credits and on into the credits, there was a song about a birthday. I don't remember if it was a character's birthday, but I believe it was. It was a sort of weird, sad, but upbeat tune. Possibly containing drug references. Not rap, more of an anti-folk feel (think Moldy Peaches) and a female singer. It was not Kimya Dawson's "Jest's Birthday". Wikipedia's list of non-canonical birthday songs does not produce anything familiar. Find for me this song, Internet.

How to account for other dependents in figuring child support responsibility?

My boyfriend's ex-wife is trying to get him to pay more child support. We got a letter showing how much "available income" she has to support the child; included in the calculation is a deduction for the other two children she has with her new husband. How is this possible, when her new husband--who has a larger income than either the ex-wife or my bf--is also responsible for those other two kids? I understand that the new hubbie is not responsible for the support costs of my bf's son--but shouldn't he be responsible for the care of his own kids, such that the ex-wife cannot deduct this cost from her income when determining the percentage of my bf's son's care for which she is responsible?
