  • How long can HIV be dormant?

    I got one of those texts that day a sexual partner has an std and they thought I should know.  From stdcheck.  I thought it was a scam but the site seems legit.  The thing is I've been in a monogomous relationship for over 8 years.  Is it possible that I got something 9 years ago... Specifically HIV... But don't know it.  Note my wife got tested three years ago and she was fine.  Any other std I'm not super concerned about cause I feel like id know by now but the idea of HIV scares me.

  • Why does my pool water drain along with the pool cover water?

    I used the drain method of putting the hose on the tarp with the water coming out from the faucet, then I turned it off to create the siphon to take the water off the tarp. it works great, but for some reason the pool itself is losing water. i dont understand how. the siphon is not string enough to suck water through the cover. if the cover was porous or had a hole in it, then wouldnt dirty water get into the pool? any ideas? this is a round above ground pool.

  • Water from unknown source in the kitchen.?

    I have marble floor tiles in my kitchen and there is some discoloration in patches on the floor in the area around the sink and dishwasher. I checked and there is no leaking from either. I checked under the floor in my crawl space and I see some dampness from what looks like through the seems in the tiles. Could it simply be from spilled water while doing dishes or something like that. Marble takes forever to dry so it is hard to determine if there is another cause. Any ideas?

  • Any legit companies that can help you license an idea?

    I have seen shows like shark tank, where you submit a new invention idea and they help you market and license or sell the product. are there any legit companies that I could submit my idea to and they could help with this. of course they would get a huge cut of the licensing, but it is better than trying to raise the thousands of dollars myself to get a patent. Any help?

  • What would happen if I accidentally tried to sell stolen goods?

    10 years ago my fiancée was proposed to and given a big diamond ring. She declined because this guy was a bit shady but he let her keep the ring anyway. She threw it in her jewelry box and forgot about it. Going through her jewelry after seeing one of those "sell your old gold" commercials, she showed this to ring to me. the diamond is rather large, so she always just assumed it was fake. If it is fake, fine, but if it isn't, it could be worth a lot of money. But being that this guy was shady, I start thinking that what would happen if he stole his ring to propose to her. what happens if you try and sell something that you got 10 years ago and it turns out to be stolen. is there a legal friendly way to determine this without landing my fiancée in any trouble?

  • Will getting pregnant effect state sponsored healthcare?

    I get state sponsored healthcare and food stamps, but I got pregnant. My boyfriend is going to help me in terms of finances which we will tell the welfare dept which I assume will effect the food stamps, but will it effect the healthcare. He can add the baby on his work plan, but cant add me unless we were married, so would he be required to help with medical expenses now or would the welfare healthcare remain unaffected?

  • Would you want to hear the voice of a departed loved one?

    My brother-in-law passed away a few months ago. I have considered taking video and audio recordings he made and piecing together some phrases that he said and putting it on a cd, so that his family could listen to it when they want to hear him or maybe if they cant recall his voice exactly. My question is whether this is a good idea or not. I understand it could be incredibly morbid to do so, but I also wondered if it would be something they would want. Any thoughts from people that have lost a loved one too young?

    My parents are older and slightly techno impaired. I want to get them a Roku for xmas with Netflix. I see there are several versions that I could buy. Which is the simplest one that I can just plug in and have them use without great fuss. I will set it up for them, but I don't want to be on call for technical difficulties...

  • Black Fluid around both front tires.?

    I have a 2013 Toyota Camry and today I found this black liquid around both front tires. The liquid seems to have been on the tires and got splashed around on the wheel well and ground around it, but I don't know what the source would be. It is not on the back tires at all. It is a thick black color. Any idea what this could be?

  • Warminster, PA Water Issue?

    Ive lived in Warminster, PA for 11 years and just found out that our town water supply has been contaminated for years by nearby government naval and airforce bases running tests with fire fighting foam that eventually got into the ground water. The bases have long since closed down, but the damage was done. Is there anything that i can do? Will the government do anything to help me get out of my house or would they force me to stay in my house in a community without clean water? If i try to move, but the property values have dropped due to this unclean water, will the government help me in anyway or am i screwed?

  • Should i apply for mortgages with two lenders at the same time?

    I have applied with two different lenders and we are at the point where they want me to sign disclosures to start the process. I know i would have to pay for the appraisal twice, but my question is more whether it makes sense to try for both so i have a back up in case the one doesn t go through for some reason?
