What would be a better metal to make armor-piercing bullets from? Tungsten? Depleted uranium? Or something else? Would it be feasible to have them be diamond-tipped?
Onto the stunt; do any of you think it would be possible for someone to jump over a car on a dirt bike? Mind you, the guy who’s going to try and do this stunt had a lot of experience riding.
You know how Blue Moon plays in the background in the movie An American Werewolf in London? Nicely ironic, yes? I'm looking for a song that will serve a similar purpose, but something more current - preferably a hit within the last five years.
The character is a teenage girl walking home after a date. It's winter, there's snow on the ground, a full moon in the sky. She's singing to herself while she walks. She's about to be attacked by...well, it's not a werewolf, but everyone's going to think it is.
What song is she humming?
Does anyone know where I can find information and pictures about the Basque region in France, around the Aquitaine area, south of Bordeux? Everything I google talks about the Basques in Spain and the Spanish movement. Thanks!
What would a modern 16 year old from Germany have learned in school about the holocaust?
Wikipedia and other sources aren't really giving simple answers to this question, though I've looked, so I figured I could ask here.
What denominations of Christianity are generally considered "liberal"? As in, my character is very involved in a church group that fully supports gay marriage and other topics viewed as Liberal Christianity. But I'm not sure what denomination that could be called.
Are all Quakers? I think I've heard something like that. Are there other specific Christian denominations that would fit in this category?
What is the standard treatment of smoke inhalation? From a house fire, in case that helps. Also, what would be the complications from having a four year old child as the victim?
So I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times before, but I'm gonna make it 1001...with (hopefully) something of a twist.
1) When someone in the UK graduates university, do they earn a "degree" or do they call it something else? If someone were to graduate, say, with a specialization in the area of theatre/drama/etc, would the degree indicate as much, or would it just be a general arts certificate?
2) Let's say this person graduates and then chooses to continue their education. Is there a British equivalent to the US graduate student program? Specifically, what would this person have to do (in Scotland actually, if it makes a difference) to be considered qualified to be a lecturer if they wanted to stay in the country?
3) On a slightly different note, let's say that this person graduated from a UK university but decided that they wanted to attend a school in the US to further pursue their education. Could they just pick up and move and go into a masters/Ph.D program with little or no fuss?
I'd Google this, but I'm not altogether doing so wouldn't get me arrested or at least red flagged. Big Brother and all that.
1) Basically, the story is about a president's college age son. Would he be given pretty much free reign within the building? Or would he have to have an escort (say, a Secret Service agent or some other type of guard)? Presumably, if he walked into the west wing and wanted to go into the oval office to speak to his dad, no one would really think twice about it, would they?
2) This character will also be attending a college that is as-yet unknown, but far enough away that he has to live on/near campus. Would this be a nightmare, as far as security is concerned? This president has three kids, two of which are adult sons, one of which is a daughter in high school. Would there be Secret Service agents hovering over all three of them constantly throughout this president's term, or only during events the president actually attended? How likely is it that this college kid (okay, Matt, I'm thinking his name is) could choose his own roommate? Would this security group, if they're involved, grill this person endlessly and require five thousand kinds of identification and a sworn oath of allegiance?
3) Are there any legal issues involved with tabloids and scandalous/unseemly stories regarding the presidential family? I remember Chelsea, of course, but all they ever talked about was who she was dating and everything. What about pictures of an, uh, sensitive nature? Since they are tabloids, I'm thinking the same open season rules apply the same as every other celebrity, but you never know. Would one of the aforementioned Secret Service agents harass any would-be paparazzo into submission if, contingent with question 2 of course, they were actually around?
4) And finally, the question that made me avoid Google: Near the end of the story, Matt is attending a campaign rally for the second term and some nutjob makes an attempt on the president's life. However, said nutjob is not a particularly good aim so Matt ends up taking it instead. The family is rounded up and hauled to a local hospital while presumably the campaign site turns into an apocalyptic wonderland of snipers. Especially given what's just happened, would security just lock down a section of the hospital while the president and first lady are waiting for their son to get out of surgery, or what? This one's got me stumped.
Yes, I'm full of questions tonight. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
