Nice! I'll have to try that!

Could I tape some dryer sheets to the hood and leave them there when I take the Neon out?

Of course they should be new for maximum benefit, but would used dryer sheets still work, too?

I owe $415 to the feds and $296 to Kansas. Though it sucks having such a big tax bill, I like to think of it this way: All this time, that money has been working for ME. The government doesn't get ONE RED CENT of it until the absolute last minute. In the meantime, my money will either sit pretty in ...

What body shop are you going to? I was rear-ended last March, and the impact damaged the bumper, bent up the muffler, and caused my driver's seat to recline too far. I got it all fixed for just under $1700 (at the other guy's expense, of course).

Man...that sucks! Taylor's theorem is where tons of numerical methods come from. Basically, you can write any function as a power series centered at a point x0 by finding its derivatives at that point: f(x) = f(x0) + f'(x0) (x-x0) + [f''(x0)/2!] (x-x0)^2 + ... + [f^(n)(x0)/n!] (x-x0)^n + [f^(n+1)(a)...

I think that toothbrush could be quite useful! Many people don't brush their teeth often enough, so this makes brushing fun (if you like the music).

If you're selling books, CDs, DVDs, and maybe other stuff, you could try half.com or amazon.com - they let you list for free but charge when your item is sold.

I don't think that gay rights should be based on whether or not sexual orientation is inherent at birth or a choice. After all, religion is a protected status, even under the Constitution, and never did it enter that debate whether religion is a choice. I would contend that it is, since lots of peop...
