  • Is anyone familiar with how purchasing individual channels on Directv works?

    So my mom ordered Directv and we just had it installed about an hour ago. I'm pretty sure we got the cheapest plan. I'm only interested in the sports channels, namely ESPN and my local FSN network (Houston). Unfortunately, these are not provided in the plan. My question here is, how would I go about ordering these channels individually?... show more

My question here is, how would I go about ordering these channels individually? Is it even possible to do this? And if so, is it one time payment thing or what? Thanks in advance. Should have asked the installation people these questions, didn't think about it at the time.

  • Talking on the phone?

    Alright, I hang around this part of Answers a lot, I don't why, I just enjoy reading some of the stuff here and occasionally helping out when I can. So I've noticed that some of the people here say that talking with your girlfriend/boyfriend for extended hours (lets say around 5+ hours) is the norm for them. My reaction to this is "wow, that's a lot." I've never talked to somewhat that long EVER. The longest I've had is 3-ish hours and yes, it was with my girlfriend but it never became the norm to have conversations that for that long. Ours are maybe 30 minutes to an hour long on average I would say. It's probably because I'm not that good of a phone person lol. :) Also, we do spend a lot of time in person and I definitely enjoy that more, it's much closer to my comfort zone so I suppose that's the reason why. Basically my question is more of a survey... Do you prefer talking for long extended hours? Do you prefer shorter ones? Also, my main question: do you think you should be able to just talk forever with that person? Because some of the sentiments here are that "if you can't go at least 5 hours with that person, it's not gonna work out." I think it's silly but go ahead and drop your own opinion. Thanks guys and girls.

  • Why does Michael Jackson own the publishing rights to The Beatles' songs?

    I've always wondered why and how he got them... It kinda bothers me that the (living) members of the band only own about 4 or so. Thanks.

  • What position do you recommend for a high school baseball player of short stature?

    My cousin will be going into his freshman year and he's really interested in playing on the baseball team and he's wondering what position would be better for him defensively. He likes playing middle infield and outfield. He's about 5'2" or 5'3".

    This started yesterday, it just loaded for a really long time, maybe 2 minutes, and just came up with a blank site, but after I refreshed the site, it worked normally. Anyone know what the problem could be? Could it be my ISP? I'm using Firefox and Windows XP.
