in 1281 ?, Korean war ships were about to attack Japan at Hakata Bay. The monks prayed, and terrible typhoons struck and destroyed the fleet. They called it "Divine Winds" and WWII Japanese suicide pilots called themselves "_________", Divine Winds.4 AnswersLanguages10 years ago

I don't know what catagory this should be in--so put it here as it sure "played" with my mind! As a teenager, my family and freinds played this. Set up a light folding card table; four people stand around it, placing our hands softly, flat on the surface of the table. Then chant "Rise table, rise" over and over again. Suddenly it started raising up on two legs! No one was pushing down on any side, as we soon were able to move our hands on the "up" side and it still continued to tap out answers to our questions--one tap, yes; two taps, no. The answers were amazingly accurate and later, only one person could remain in contact with the table. This went on all evening, and as if it were tired, it finally started "tap-walking" it's way to the front door and STOPPED for the evening. We all were so spooked my folks never tried it again. I've never asked friends to try it, so I never have since that. If you've experienced this, please write--or if you have some educated guesses...8 AnswersPsychology1 decade ago
Do you think that the US will ever put citizens, both naturalized and by birth, in concentration camps again?
Such as Manzanar after Pearl Harbor when we arrested people of Japanese ancestry, citizens as well as those legally in the US, and put them in camps in the desert for years? Also illegally took their homes and property.----I don't know if they ever got resitution.2 AnswersImmigration1 decade ago
I LOVE dogs! But I had to take my Grandson's Siamese neutered male--about 10 yrs old--(the CAT, that is!) because the new step-Dad is very allergic. My little poodle lived to be about 15 and I CRAVE a dog again!! I live in a 1-bd rm, but am very active. I'd walk and take him/her out with me EVERYWHERE! I LOVE their company. Plse don't tell me to get a husband--I'm 0-for-2 and not in for another one at 77! ")

I keep losing the Questioner before I can answer! Re "hill and toe". Do you mean "heel & toe"? Stick shift?
Stick shifts can stall--particularly when you're stopped at the top of a steep hill. Then you have "heel" the brake, while your toe regulates the gas peddle! I used to drive an MGTF around San Francisco and Berkeley in '55 & '56. I got pretty good at it--but it always scared me! I entered "The Ladies' Race" at Laguna Seca one yr--scared myself silly at the top of a steep winding climb with a sheer drop on the outside of the sharp turn down. But it was all GREAT FUN!!
(Disregard, if this isn't what you meant. I have no idea WHAT "hill & toe" is.1 AnswerSafety1 decade ago
