H'okay. Here's the deal.
I have a character who's gone missing, no one knows where she is, etc. She's missing for about seventeen months before she resurfaces.
If a Missing Persons report is filed after she goes missing, when is it likely that she'd be officially declared dead by the police? Would it be within those seventeen months, or would it be later? Or would they do that at all?
Thanks in advance for the help!
ETA: The time and place are the Kansas/Missouri area, in the present. Since I seem to have forgotten to add that little detail...
So...what did people at the time call the American Civil War? I was wandering around a graveyard the other day (strange, I know) and found a few gravestones with "War of 1861" on them, so I'm tending to think that's what it was... Anyone know for sure?
I don't even know where to start looking for something like this, so let me just set up the scenario for you:
Guy gets knocked off his feet and ends up on his hands and knees, then guy gets his entire heart blasted out by some kind of energy beam. I'm thinking his body would slump, but I'm not too sure which direction their body would go.
Also, about how long does it take for someone to die once their heart is gone? I'm a little fuzzy on that.
I have a young, very wealthy couple interested in buying/building a villa in Marettimo for a story I'm writing. From what I've read about the Egadi islands, they're quite unspoilt and not as commerically "touristy" as other parts of Italy. How likely is it that my couple (not native to Italy) would be able to buy a villa there? I want them to be somewhere that's a little different, a little less known, but I don't want to make it entirely implausible if there are few opportunites for the rich to build/ buy homes there.
Thanks in advance!
I have a character who's dislocated her shoulder. She had it popped back in and immobilized immediately by an untrained colleague and everything seems fine (she's been injured like this before and knows what 'not fine' feels like), but she still wants a professional opinion. It will be a few hours before she's able to seek one out, but when she does she'll be in a city where there are plenty of medical facilities to choose from. For a non-emergency injury like this, what's going to be her likely destination?
EDIT: Looks like ER is gonna be what I end up going with. Thanks, all!
Okay, I have a character who is into vintage motion picture cameras. They know everything about them. I am wondering if anyone can help me, I have searched over and over and have yet to find what I am looking for. So here is my question;
Does anyone know of a site that gives information on Kalimar 83 Super 8 cameras? Or do you yourself have any more information that you could give me? Around what time was this camera used? What was it used for mainly? Are they valuable of can they be found anywhere?
I simply cannot find anything about this type of camera on google, or any other search site. Any help would be lovely.
