A lawyer advised me and my spouse to write separate wills :
as the will is charged at a fee per will, I'm trying to establish if this is a general
practice out there & the reasons for it : if it's one joint will, it will be charged
for one will's fee.

Reason was the lawyer wants to customize it to meet our special-needs
(intellectually disabled who can't live on his own) kid but by making the
wills separate, I'm curious how this helps

Hi,
Is there any good book or epic or video which tells about different people we meet in life. The psychology of various relatives and people that we meet in life and how to be clever in judging people etc. I think epics like Mahabharata are on these lines.
Thanks

I had this question after viewing The ultimate answer.

I think this current question belongs in Philosophy zone and is related to other questions that ask about related questions.

I tried to ask a related question. But I stated that I did not know how to ask a related question.
Expert offered advice about related question but not about the question I asked.

The way I phrased the my question; the expert may have answered the question correctly.

This is a question that I have had in the back of my mind for a while, and I wonder what your thoughts are, and if there is any evidence for or against it.

My reason for thinking this is true, is that both groups tend to answer unexplained events with some "authority figure". For religion, examples include "nobody knows what causes lightning, so Zeus must do it when he's angry" or "I do not understand how evolution can come up with new designs, so there has to be an Intelligent Designer".

For conspiracy theories we can include "The twin towers collapse could not have happened as claimed, hence some dark authority is behind it" or "Oswald could not have shot Kennedy on his own, so the FBI/CIA/Cuba must be involved".

Another reason for my thinking is the fact hat the US is the most common birthplace of conspiracy theories - and the US is also the most religious nation in the developed world.

What do you think?

Hi
I was in a band in late nineties college,
am 39 now, single, set up financially, don't want to sneak into the decimated music industry now. I'm not going to sing for a 90 second trial in front of Simon, etc for AGT. I am of the Nirvana/Pearl Jam, don't care about clothes and 80's hair band superficiality. Online song submission venues still mention to bare in mind your image and personality. Hah! It never dies off. If I dye my hair pink like Kurt Cobain, the old bastards I have wings-night and watch football with won't be impressed.
Playing live 'round town now is more invisible than playing at an old age home, which I did once with my Novell colleagues, btw, and also at a metal institute!
But, it's the millennials that comb these sites for new music. How? Where? How can I insert my music into the millennials' radar?

If I'm not myself a millennial, is music a waste of time? It feels like it. As a 19 year old, I digged DMB, but he was all over the radio, and TV. I can handle doing it for myself and satisfaction of live play. Is that all there is for non-millennials? Dave Matthews was 36 and the others in DMB were old like me, too.

Hi
I know this is not maths and science but I've asked tonnes of maths and science questions on here and got better answers than maths forums. I know this is pushing my luck asking a grammar question in the this topic but I have proposed this topic.
So the question. If my boyfriend and I went shopping the grammar is 'boyfriend and I' not 'boyfriend and me'. If a cake was shared between me and my boyfriend the grammar is 'my boyfriend and me' and not my boyfriend and me. The current trend seems to be to say 'and I' regardless as aren't confident in their grammar so they say 'and I' as a catch all as they know it is a common mistake. But is there a rule when you use the word myself (I know you don't start a sentence with but)? For example, I dragged myself to the gym. Would it be 'I dragged my boyfriend and myself go to the gym' or is it 'I dragged my boyfriend and me go the the gym?'
I know it's not a crucial topic but it is bugging me as I did used to proofread and I can't see this in any of my grammar books.
I'm sorry if I have misused this topic and I hope the moderators don't get too annoyed but the description does say that ,although the topic is Maths and Science, questions are asked on other subjects like biology. This suggests biology isn't a science which is quite brave to say  as biologists don't like this, but biology is information-based and not axiomatic like physics or maths. If biology is a science because it is based on experiments and observation and then …

Hi,
I recently came across george berkeley. And just started reading his three dialogues.
I felt there is some similarity between what is called gyan yoga or marg in vedanata/hinduism and georege berkeley idealism.

Can anyone suggest some good references for gyan yoga / good philosophy on similar lines of george berkeley. His philosophy is termed as subjective idealism

Thanks

On the page:

http://www.williambranham.com/the-original-sin/

I see two references to I John 3:12 with different quotes.

I need to know what Bible verse (and version) contains the following quote:

Before Adam ever had carnal knowledge of Eve, the serpent had that knowledge ahead of him. And that one born of it was Cain. Cain was of (born of, begotten of) that “Wicked One”. I John 3:12

when I search the web for I John 3:12 and even the page I posted, there is a different quote that does not interest me.

Can onion teach me how to find the bible version for this verse I John 3:12 that matches the bolded text above?

Thanks

Sherlock Holmes famously said,

“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

Is this Deductive reasoning, Inductive reasoning or something else?

Thanks!

One of the 10 Commandments is adultery. A female member of the church who attends every week, missed three Sundays. The minister and some members were concerned about her well being, etc. In an e-mail to the minister she said that she had traveled to meet someone to discuss starting a family. She is not married so no adultery on her part. Nothing is known about her partner.

If a couple who are not married to other people have a child out of wedlock have both of them committed a sin?
There is more to this and we can post more later.

 MQ: Can Jerusalem become part of peace planning?
                       Or
Why Can't Jerusalem become part of peace planning?

Item: Some muslim claim it was found to be their best link to heavens (>=7).

Item: Some among jews claim prior ownership for best place on earth to centralize access to their g_d (lost 'temple').

Item: Some among christianity claim it since it was thought to be last city visited by their favored leader.

Item: Where one Moses in common to all the above, was said to lead others to vacant farmlands the city was not part of the 'promised' land of milk and honey. City named as Salem.

Item: Judahites not present in the city until reign of David where it was referred to as Jebusalem, which does not refer to Jews (Jew's Salem) but rather to the local inhabitants - Jebusites.

Item: The other two religions do must accept mutual history to that period, whatever else predating any major central place of worship. For example, Solomon came on later to the scene, as did Bat Sheva, Zadok & Cushian Yesaba.

I refer to Leedskalnin's Perpetual Motion Holder:

This guy had a strange theory about magnetism, a kind of mistic, not really part of scientific world.

Hi
I wonder if I used a famous person's (first) name in a URL, would that be legally unadvisable?

Say I was making a weight lifting web-site and I wanted to call it Arnold's palace, would Arnold Schwarzenegger have anything to say?
What about an Alternative music blog and I called it vedderboard.com from Eddie Vedder.
or eddieboard.com
?
