• Are digital watches synchronized with computer clocks?

    I have an analog watch but it keeps falling out of sync with my computer (laptop) clock, ending up either several seconds ahead or behind it often within an hour/a couple of hours after resetting it to match the clock.

    I have an analog watch but it keeps falling out of sync with my computer (laptop) clock, ending up either several seconds ahead or behind it often within an hour/a couple of hours after resetting it to match the clock. Are digital watches more accurate? Would I even have to synchronize one manually, or would it automatically be matched up with the computer clock and stay as such, not needing to be constantly adjusted?

  • What to do if a cat eats a small piece of plastic from a plastic bag?

    Nearly a half hour ago, my cat ate a small piece of a plastic bag. Should I induce vomiting? If so, how? Or should I wait for her to pass it? If so, how long should I wait until taking her to the vet? I just cleaned the litter boxes so I can watch for anything new, but she just used the box earlier, so that could take time.

  • Why does my phone say "Memory full"?

    Got it a week ago with some basic apps prepackaged, as well as installing Life 360 and Pandora. But a message keeps appearing tell me that my memory is full; do 360 and Pandora really take up that much space? How do I delete them and other apps?

  • What do I do if I stepped on a random remote button?

    There have to be 40 - 50 buttons, and I have no idea which one I hit; all I get is a blue button. Is there anything I can do, or should I reset the box back to default or something?

  • Will my muscle soreness go away?

    A few days ago I decided to start working out/exercising out of the blue. I'm doing sit-ups, push-ups, and lifting small (15 lb.) dumbbells.

Am I pushing myself too far, or will I get used to these workouts if I... show more

    A short while ago today I hurt my kitten's leg; she was laying under my legs (I didn't realize this until afterward) and I when I was getting up, I must've put pressure on her leg, because when I realized what I'd done I put her on the floor and she was limping with the back right leg. She didn't make any noises when I crushed her leg, but is limping anyway. She seems more irritable when I pick her up, even when I don't press on her leg. And when I do, she reacts sharply and with a little yelp when I press the lower part of the leg, just above the paw. Other than that, she seems pretty normal. She's about nine weeks old, if that matters.

    I got this kitten, several weeks old, about two weeks ago, and for the first few days she had diarrhea. While this went away, in the last two days she has now vomited twice. After the first time (in which she threw up what looked like the cat milk we had given her), we assumed it was the type of food and switched to a different type. All seemed fine until just a few minutes ago, when she vomited up the food she had earlier. Everything else seems fine; she runs around and plays, has a good appetite, and she is no longer having diarrhea, so what could be the problem?

While this alone is worrying, she also hasn't **** yet (in the litterbox or otherwise). We've put her in the box numerous times already, but she just hops out of it and wants to play. She seems very normal, playful and willing to eat; just hasn't **** or taken a drink of water since we got her yesterday afternoon. Why? And I know she hasn't gone yet, as we've mainly kept her in one room so far, and I don't see anything.
