Just because I'm arrogant doesn't mean I don't actually know everything.

  • buying frozen cheesecake?

    Okay, several years ago I was browsing the frozen treats at the grocery store and bought what looked like a half gallon of ice cream. It was actually cheesecake that was frozen and whipped into the consistency of ice cream. I loved it, but I have never found anything like it again in the major supermarkets. Keep in mind that I'm not looking for a cheesecake flavored ice cream, or a regular cheesecake. Does anybody know of a mass marketed brand product that consists of real frozen cheesecake with the consistency of an ice cream or frozen yogurt?

  • What is the legal definition of "yummy"?

    So I'm sitting here making some hot cocoa and I notice that the box says "Guaranteed yummy." Now, I don't doubt that they would refund my money if I was not satisfied with the product, but if I did need to take them to court, what would be the legal definition of "yummy"? Would only my opinion count, or would I need a consensus of people saying that they don't find it to be "yummy"? Could the court find that the cocoa is "yummy" even if I think it tastes like dirt? By the way, I just tasted it and it's okay, but it's a far cry from what I would call "yummy." Maybe my "yummy" standards are too high.

  • What is the purpose of Cumin?

    So me and my mother were watching the Food Network and we noticed that the chefs all put cumin in everything. So we went out and bought it and, sure enough, it has a strong chili smell, but we tasted it and it was bland, like dirt. I put a liberal amount in the fried chicken I was making and nobody could tell the difference. Is cumin a scam and all the chefs just use it because everybody else does, or does it actually do something?

  • AT&T: Is my number really blocked?

    I bought someone an AT&T Go Phone. I pay the bill so I have access to the call detail. They are mad at me right now and I wanted to call with my number blocked so I used *67, but my number shows up on the call detail. Does this mean it shows up on the actual phone as well?

  • Stump The Doctors: I am never hungry?

    From what I gather, when people skip a meal they get some type of pain or rumbling that tells them that they need to eat. I never get that. I have never been hungry. I enjoy food and like to eat, but if I get busy I can forget to eat entirely for a couple of days before I suddenly realize I haven't eaten in a while. I know some diseases or disorders might cause one to lose their appetite, but what life-long condition might cause one to never be hungry in the first place?

  • A Composite of Law and Ethics Questions?

    I didn't pay my rent because the roof leaks so my landlord gave me a 3-day notice to pay or quit. I can't pay the full amount because my boss, who never gave me lunch breaks, fired me unfairly. This stressed me out so I smoked marijuana while pondering whether it should be legalized and whether or not the death penalty should be abolished. I got paranoid and thought an intruder was coming inside, but I don't know if I can legally shoot him. Instead, I went to the store to take care of my munchies. Naturally, at the store, I proceeded to use the public restroom to have sex with a 17-year-old even though I'm 18. When I was done, I was accused of shoplifting by a guard who wanted to search me. I ran away from him, but slipped in the store because I had my eyes closed at the time. I didn't get hurt, but I want to sue the store because I didn't get my economic stimulus check yet due to my parents claiming me as a dependent. What are my legal options?

  • How do you feel about this Novel approach to shoplifting?

    A Dutch store decided to do something different when faced with their 10,000th shoplifter. They surprised her with flowers, balloons, cake, a marching band, and a sign congratulating her on being the 10,000th shoplifter.

    I'm willing to bet it was the most humiliating moment of her life. I suspect she will think twice before shoplifting again. I just love creative approaches to crime. You can watch the video of the event at the following URL:

  • To Law & Ethics Regulars in America Only: How Will You Spend the 4th?

    Okay, this is a really flimsy pretext question for the sole purpose of wishing a Happy 4th of July to the regulars in the Law and Ethics section. You are all great fun, even the ones I frequently disagree with (you know who you are).

    So does anyone have any special plans?

  • Stump the Banker: Question about Check Formatting?

    I was reading a story about a dispute between famed satirist Randall Munroe and Verizon who kept billing him for 2/10ths of a cent. He finally wrote them a check for 2/10ths of a cent, but expressed it on the check as an advanced mathematical equation. (0.002 + e^i*pi + absolute value of infinity/2). The equations works out to 2/10ths of a cent. A link to an image of the check is here:

    http://consumerist.com/consumer/verizonmath/solve-...

    After I was done laughing, I started to wonder whether or not a check would be legal if the dollar amount was provided in the form of an equation. After all, it would have the required information including an exact value, but you'd need to find someone who could figure out the calculation first. Is there anything in the UCC that would prohibit writing out the value of the check in this manner?

  • Does intelligence equate to a desire to kill? Why?

    Dolphins and the octopus rank near the top of the list when it comes to intelligence. Octopii have demonstrated complex puzzle-solving tasks and are notorious for their ability to escape captivity. Dolphins are highly social, have excellent memories, limited ability to understand the language of another species, and have demonstrated altruistic acts.

    Other animals in the wild have been known to kill for food, dominance, defense, and territorialism. Octopii have recently been witnessed drowning sharks seemingly for no reason. Dolphins have been witnessed killing porpoises for fun and then playing with the corpse. Humans, of course, also possess intelligence and the ability to kill for sport. If you accept the premise that high intelligence also leaves you with a species capable of killing for fun, what theories might you have that explain the correlation between the two?

    This idea fascinates me and I'm interested in any serious response.

  • Please help with TV show recommendations?

    I am not a TV person and I'm VERY picky, but I'm bored lately and looking for shows I might like. At present, I only watch Mythbusters, Ghost Hunters, X-Files re-runs, and House M.D.. As you can see, there is a common thread. They all deal with solving mysteries and all have an element of humor. Based upon these shows, can you suggest other programs I might enjoy?
