I'm 18 and go to the Universtiy of Washington, which may only be the 22nd best university in the world according to Newsweek, but according to me it's the bets school in the world! Anyways I was raised Christian. My mom never really decided if she was Catholic or Protestant, so I got both stories. I'm really interested in Sufism, Hinduism and UU-ism. I love languages. I'm really good at Spanish, and I'm also learning Arabic. I also learned some Greek forever ago, and remember only a little.
I'm in a Persian language class that's taught in Turkish. I would like to find a book in English as a reference in my mother tongue. Does anybody know of any English-language bookstores in Istanbul that might have something like this?2 AnswersTurkey10 years ago
So, my latest English paper is to take an "artifact" to write about from a Marxist point of view. In other words we have to talk about how such and such element of it represents and how it has to do with capitalism and the proletariat and I'm kind of at a loss of what to pick. Little Miss Sunshine has some hints of classism in it, but I think there are some better ones out there.1 AnswerEconomics1 decade ago
Ok, so I bought an S-Video to RCA cable so I could use my TV as a monitor for my laptop, and I hooked it up and nothing is showing up on my TV, I've changed the source, tired channel 3, and so on.
I have a Dell inspiron 1521 laptop and an old Sylvania, non-HD TV.
How can I get whatever is showing on my laptop screen to show up on my TV?1 AnswerHome Theater1 decade ago

I'm going to go on a student tour to Spain for 20 days and would like to know how much money I should take with me. Breakfast, dinner and transportation are included in the price of the trip. So how much should I bring for souvenirs, lunch and taxis to get around the cities?
Also, what form of money should the money be in? Travelers checks, cash? Would I be able to use an ATM card from an
American bank in Spain?
Thanks for putting up with the long question.2 AnswersOther - Destinations1 decade ago

Lately, I've been having the tingling sensation that you have when your feet fall asleep, but in other places on my body, such as: my nose, the back of my head, just my little finger and even the tip of my tongue. Is this something I should be worried about? Should I see a doctor?
By the way, this is a 100% serious question. No joking around.5 AnswersOther - Health1 decade ago
While shopping at Safeway today, the bakery employee told me I couldn't have a cookie samples because of the corporate decision to limit samples to very young kids. However, I shop there all the time, and buy almost all of my groceries there. So shouldn't I be entitled to a cookie? I told them I would shop elsewhere, that their decision was wrong. Samples in stores SELL THEIR PRODUCTS. Costco, Top Food, Fred Meyer, Albertson's and QFC offer samples in an attempt to lure consumer to buy their products. I strongly feel that Safeway's decision was wrong, and I let them know how I felt. Also, to only give cookie samples to very young children is a risky decision, many kids are not able to remember they have allergies and what they are.
So who do you think it right? Me or Safeway?6 AnswersCorporations1 decade ago
I have a few questions about your religion, both Asatru and Hellenic Polytheists.
1. What religion do you follow? Is that what you prefer it be called? (I've heard lots of different names)
2. How were you led to your religion?
3. What do you think when people refer to the story of your Gods as myths? Have you ever confronted somebody about it?
4. Is it true that a lot of people join your religion simply to rebel, rather than for true belief? how do you feel about this, if true?
5. Do you have a specific name for the building you meet in?
6. Do you speak any Old Norse/ Ancient Greek?
7. Do you consider Odin to be the same as Zeus? Are they the same as the God of other religions?
Any other interesting info would be nice.
As for why I'm asking this, I'm interested in other religions, and these two are quite different from the rest due to their being reconstructed.7 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
And by that I mean no Santa stuff, no reindeer, none of that. Christmas is about Jesus, and it should stay that way. Am I right, or am I right?
To all the atheists who are yearning to answer this, give me your imput on the origins of Christmas.Just because it was a Christian holy day that was fused with a pagan one make it non-Christian.
I am a Theosophist, not a Christian, so don't go saying I'm bias.15 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
