• Opinions wanted on the question of PS4 versus Xbox One?

    In my house we have had PS, Nintendo, and Xbox consoles over the years, but my son finally moved out and took all his consoles with him. All that I have is my own XBox 360. I am looking to get either PS4 or XBox One because I really want to play Fallout 4 (I love the fallout games). Not going to upgrade my old laptop which will not run Fallout4. ... show more
    In my house we have had PS, Nintendo, and Xbox consoles over the years, but my son finally moved out and took all his consoles with him. All that I have is my own XBox 360. I am looking to get either PS4 or XBox One because I really want to play Fallout 4 (I love the fallout games). Not going to upgrade my old laptop which will not run Fallout4. PS4 is a better machine, but XBox One has backward game capability and I like a lot of the older games on all console lines so PS not having that kind of annoys me. Backward compatibility isn't a killer if I still have the old XBox 360 anyway though. Looking for advice and thoughts as to which would be "better" for me.

  • How can I tell what I am top contributor in, exactly?

    With other Top Contributors, if you click on their name, you get a summary page which includes the subject for which they have earned "top contributor" status. However, when I click on my name, that info is not provided on the page I get. it would be nice to know what the heck I am being rewarded for. If you go to my page, you will see... show more

  • Umbrellagate? Come on, is that all you have?

    I got a hangnail bothering me, you want me to tell you about it? Making a "scandal" out of the umbrella thing is really sad, and shows that the attackers aren't really concerned about what is right and wrong or important or not, they just want to attack. What a waste of time. What is next, he sneezed and didn't use a hanky?

  • Is this new request to link my Facebook account a permanent thing, or can I shut it off?

    Because if I am going to be asked to link my facebook account every time I answer or contribute anywhere on Yahoo, I will simply stop answering and contributing. It is a royal *** pain.

  • Two of my cats, one a kitten and one 2 year old, love to jump onto my shoulders and cuddle?

    The older one does it less now because he is simply too big (he is a large male). I now have a kitten that is about 3.5 months old, and she loves jumping onto my shoulders, and even appears to be grooming me - she licks my hair and nibbles at my neck and back scalp before lying down to sleep (on my shoulders and neck), and it is rather an odd thing... show more

It just doesn't seem correct for me to use whomever in this case. Whomever is US president. I understand why the person wrote it (the phrase is preceded by the preposition FOR), but the clause "xxx is US president" calls for whoever, not whomever. Which is correct, whomever or whover, and why? I would have said whoever.

Anyone else think that my dismissal of the sounds as nothing odd was wrong? I think he may have experienced one of those odd precursor events that are mentioned here and there but are hard to prove as real. He should contact an earthquake expert about it and tell his experience. The cooincidence is pretty hard to dismiss (a day before the big earthquake he wrote "I'll tell Haiti not to worry" when he gave me best answer for what I think now was probably wrong). What you geo experts think about that oddity?

  • Acceleration of objects on the earth surface.?

    over in earth sciences, someone asked a question about whether acceleration of objects differs on the earth surface according to location (pole versus equator being the two end member conditions) see this http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100111214747AAPaLP6 I cannot remember the equations that apply and have bailed on looking it... show more

I cannot remember the equations that apply and have bailed on looking it up. My thinking is that the velocites are clearly different, and as a result the forces required to cause an acceleration vary according to location, but I fall into the thinking that the acceleration is actually the same for all bodies. That is, the change in velocity per unit time does not vary with location. Is this correct, and if so, why?

  • MS word files get huge when importing photos, why?

    I can,t figure out how to keep my Word docs from exploding in size when importing (inserting as file) photos, even though the photo files are not big at all, say 500k jpegs. The word file containing 8 such photos can get bigger than 100 meg. Not pasting, inserting. Shouldn't balloon the file size like this and wondering why or how to avoid.

    recent Yahoo headline : Tackling wider air pollution would speed climate action: UN. "The agency believes that national efforts to control the pollutants -- such as black carbon or soot, low level ozone or smog, methane and nitrogen compounds -- could simultaneously generate health and economic savings as well, and address other environmental concerns." "Efforts to tackle them could have a swift impact in reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases, according to scientists" I have always maintained that we KNOW that air pollution in general has many adverse impacts on humans and the environment. The same is not known about greenhouse warming. Therefore, we should put our money and effort into reducing air pollution in general, and this will benefit the greenhouse warming problem at the same time (if there is a problem at all). At least something good will come of our expense and effort. Are the AGW people finally catching on that the pollution problem is more than greenhouse? Shouldn't we stop wasting time and effort and actually get something accomplished and move off the sidetrack issue of possible global warming problems? Deal with the real and known?

  • Kayak fishing, any advice?

    I don't have a boat, so I do a lot of fishing from the shore. I find it somewhat limiting. I've been looking into getting a kayak to go out on rivers and lakes. I used to love fishing from our canoe when I was young. Anyone have any advice on this? models, brands? any feed back would be nice.

  • Skin sensitivity and black dandruff-like stuff on my cat?

    My older male Buster has lately been very sensitive when you touch his back along the spine from about front shouders to the tail (not at all the same reaction one gets from scratching a cat in front of the tail). When I looked at his fur, down under near the base there is a lot of black sandy-gritty looking stuff, almost as though he has rolled in black sand, but I think it is more a skin thing-been there for a few weeks. Doesn't go away and brushing doesn't get rid of it.. he is mostly an indoor cat, essentially never goes out and when he does it is for a couple minutes at most and never far from the door. Guess it is time for a vet visit, but I was wondering if anyone had ever seen anything like this. He's an orange tabby, a bit overweight of course, not that I think that matters but who knows.

    The two primary underpinnings of the theory that Greenhouse warming is caused by man are : Correlative relationship between recent atmospheric CO2 contents and estimated (calculated) global temperatures; and predictive modeling that appears to be able to mimic historic trends and which indicates global warming shall result from the continuation of increasing CO2 (climate forcing concept). Convince me please, if you would, that the correlative relationship is causative and not coincidental or a secondary association; and convince me that climate models are reasonably accurate for predictive purposes. As to the former, I find there is a large disconnect between the two parameters, particularly outside the timeframe of the industrial revolution, and I find that the second, at least for short term climate prediction, has a very poor accuracy to date (I am not confusing weather with climate either). Have fun. I know some of you will love to set me straight.
