    Do multivitamins really work/get absorbed?

    I talked to a nurse one time about pills and they call a lot of the vitamins out there bedpan bullets. She suggested checking you vitamins by putting them in some vinegar for a couple of hours and see if they disolve. If not they are a complete waste. On a another note there is Doctor Joel...

    Help choosing a Sci/Fi book/series. Anything comparable to the "Foundation" series?

    I'm terribly embarrassed about giving the wrong author for the Mars series. It's been over 16 years or so since I read them and I was reading a book a day through high school of Sci-Fi. I guess the old brain got them mixed up.:b As far as Anne McCaffrey is concerned most of her books are...

    Help choosing a Sci/Fi book/series. Anything comparable to the "Foundation" series?

    You can also try Ben Bovas 'Red Mars' 'Green Mars' 'Blue Mars' amazingly enough about the terraforming of Mars. Or my all time favorite authoress(?) Anne McCaffrey. She has a few series out. Dragon Riders of Pern, which is sci-fi not fantasy. Then she has another series about people who...

    joggers please help

    It's time to start getting back into shape, and round is not a shape that I like.:b I jogged a lot in high school and loved it. Now I'm 34 and 25lbs overweight and I want to take up jogging again, I'm fortunate to have some neighbours who have invited me to join them. Here's the question...

    Worst commute to work

    When we bought our new house in a different city I was doing loops from home to work to new house.(To prewire the whole house for speakers, RCA's and security, among other things.) I put 50 000 km on it in one year. (Appprox 32000miles.) I blew the 5 year warranty in less than 2.5 years of...

    yet another "car audio?" thread

    rockford fosgate is head and shoulders above the other two brands. Even if you're tight for cash still try to get a small 4 channel amp for all speakers or a 2 channel amp for the rear speakers. The difference in the sound quality will be well worth it. The rated power on the Head units...

    Car stereo: noise problem (long)

    Spark plug wires can give off some nasty noise. I had the regular Honda wires and switched to the high performance Canadian Tire brand. The high pitched whine drove me nuts so I returned them. The Ground Loop Isolator only works for so long. It absorbs with small capacitors (I believe) and they...

    do those bamboo citronella flled torches keep mosquitoes away?

    We go camping every year..(leaving tommorrow in fact) and my wife thinks they work great. I watch the skeets fly right thru the cit smoke like it is nothing. I agree with the mood of the torches but I think DEET is the only real thing that has worked for us. PS I am really interested in that...

    Do you guys where undershirts underneath your dress shirts in the summer?

    What's sweat? I dress in suits a lot and it ticks off my wife that I never sweat. I use the crystal so I don't have to worry about the crusties either. So no I don't use undershirts. It does suck to see guys with big wet stains in their shirts. I do wish guys would learn to tie their ties...

    Interesting site! One spelling change. On the Pan & Scan page change loosing to losing. The first spelling means untighten. PS I've bookmarked it and sent the link to a few friends who will probably enjoy learning about "our" hobby.

    Do you put your TP roll over or under and does it matter?

    Has to be under. Mike you rock, I always switch them to under when I get the chance. (My wife and I have are our own bathrooms hers is over mine is under...unless one of us uses the others then we switch them just to piss each other off!!):D They did a huge survey and found something like 78%...

    Had a funny demo giving experience a couple days ago.

    I had a salesman into my home to pitch a MLM to me one time. He asked if I had a VCR so I brought him down to my theatre room. I've got a 100 inch screen and the full fireworks. As we were watching the video there is a part where a stampede of horses run across the screen and back behind you...

    Anybody know about back pain?

    Is it sharp pain or a dull pain that is through out? Usually a sharp pain means the nerves are involved. Chiro's call it a subluxation or pinched nerve. If it is dull through the area you described it's probably muscular. I'm an assembly line worker and have had the pleasure of both from time...

    Apartment to be repainted soon. Are paint fumes dangerous for cats?

    Julie K your first mistake was getting a Calico cat... :D all that I've met or had were nutbars!!!!(Not a scientific test just 9 or 10 cats and some Vet comments.) All my other cats love it when you change things around. Thus the phrase 'curiosity killed the cat'. I wouldn't think a water...

    What do you think of in-ceiling speakers

    Don't go ceiling mount for the fronts if there is any other way. They will not be aimed correctly for anything..music or movie. They are not nearly as good as a small pair of bookshelf speakers. I have good inwalls throughout my home and they just can't match a pair of speakers in a purposely...

    psb vs monitor audio

    I've been given the unthankful task of buying a wedding party gift for my bro-in-law. The cash I've been given plus what my wife and I are adding gives me certain restrictions on what I can buy. I've decided on a Yamaha receiver but am having a difficult time with the speakers. I can get the...

    Last Question before I buy... Sports Suspension/Performance tires or not....

    get the sport and snows for winter!!!!!!!! It's not as expensive as you think. If you divide the cost of the sport tires by the time you use them and factor in the extra life because you use snows in the winter. I've been doing it for the last 8 years and I won't go back to 'NO SEASONS'...

    Your gaming gripes?

    Xbox gripe? I just finished Munches O, last night and you can save at any point along the way.

    I've rented xbox and had to use the regular patch cords to my system. How is the A/V pack different? What connections are there available? A friend and I played Halo about 14 hours straight. Thank goodness for long weekends!!:D Needless to say playing Halo on a 100 inch screen just rocks...

    ??? on recording to a cd recorder

    Are you talking about a CD recorder on your computer or a stand alone Stereo Component Cd recorder? I've read that a lot of new music is being encoded to prevent copying. Here in Canada were have a levy put on recording materials (tapes and the like) and now they are encoding CD's. This is...
