DVDs are sold in large vertical rectangular boxes that have lots of empty space inside it.
CDs and music albums are sold in small square-ish cases that are much more compact.
Why is it that they are sold in different packaging? Why would they waste so much plastic on DVD cases than CDs? Wouldn't it be much cheaper for the DVD companies if they sold them in smaller cases?2 AnswersMovies7 years ago

im not sure but,
my dad says that when you retire they give you a reduced pension if you still have money left over from your RRSP.
person 1 saves and takes $2000 from RRSP when retires (-income tax), gets reduced pension
=$3000 in his pocket
person 2 has no RRSP, gets 3000 from pension
=$3000 in his pocket
My dad says "whats the point of investing my money early in life when I couldve used it for something else, and then having the same amount of cash as another guy who has not payed a cent for RRSP?"
is this true? do you have to use up your own money that YOU invested into RRSP, before you can have your full pension payment?
cuz i always thought RRSP was for bonus cash when u retire3 AnswersCanada9 years ago

my household used to use bell performance, but we recently switched to bell fibe (fiber optics). i just got the modem for the bell fibe mailed to me today, but when im browsing online i feel like my new bell internet service is slower than usual. nothing seems to be "fast" as they say.
is it because they have to install fiber optics wires or something? cuz its annoying when i have to refresh everytime before i can get to a website4 AnswersComputer Networking1 decade ago
ive been a customer of skullcandy for 3 years, and i am freaking mad of all the money i spent on them. ive bought 1 pair of earphones and 2 headphones from them, and their speakers always break in a time period of 4-6 months. i always forgave them, cuz i often go biking or do some rough sports with them, but these headphones so widely considered good for sports are more frail than my grandma. worst part is, they don't come with warranty unless you buy from their online store.
my question is,i need to find a company that makes high quality headphones under $100 that wont fail on me and can take a trip for some mountain biking.3 AnswersMusic & Music Players1 decade ago

Let's also say you are going to microwave it for a long period of time.
Is it possible to set your microwave on fire when it has been cooking for a long time?

i want to get a game from steam online so my lil brother doesnt find out about it,when i buy a game from retail stores hes always annoying me if he can play it first, and he NEVER stops playing.
so i decided the most inconspicuous way to prevent him finding out about me getting a game was from downloading by steam.
problem is, does steam send confirmation mail or by phone about your purchase to you directly? cuz hes the type of kid who pokes his nose everywhere, one small slip and im screwed when he finds out.
in short, does steam leave you alone once u buy a game or do they call, send mail, or annoy you about anything after that? other than confirmation email that is..1 AnswerVideo & Online Games1 decade ago
