  • What is the conversion for dry egg noodles to cooked?

    I've searched it but I get different answers.

    One answer I've gotten is 8 oz of uncooked egg noodles = 2 1/2 cups cooked.

    The other is 8 oz of uncooked egg noodles = 4 cups cooked.

    Obviously this is a huge difference. I'm trying to make lo mein for the first time and I really would like to not screw up the noodle ratio. I have a package of uncooked noodles with 6 servings, each serving being about 2 oz. Recipe calls for 2 cups cooked noodles. How many servings should I cook?

  • 8 weeks pregnant and I've been bleeding consistently for 5 days. Should I be worried?

    I'm 8 weeks pregnant and since Wednesday (so for 5 days) I've been slightly cramping and bleeding bright red blood. Not a lot, not even half the flow of a normal period, but it's making me nervous. Mostly because it hasn't slowed down. Like damn, how much blood can I lose before I miscarry? Or am I in the process of having a miscarriage already? Or just getting ready for one? Should I go to the doctor or wait a bit longer?

  • Why do I have no appetite?

    I'm a 22 year old female and I've been experiencing a lack of appetite, literally all day for a couple days now. I have to force myself to eat to keep the hunger pains away, only bland foods. If someone puts a hot meal in front of my face, my stomach knots and I can barely take a couple bites. Even if it's my favorite foods, I just can't bring myself to eat it. I'm losing weight. I think a combination of depression, anxiety, and stress may have something to do it. Though, I've been this stressed before and it has NEVER had an effect on my appetite.

    I normally have at least two meals a day, plus snacks. Now, I'm down to not even half a "meal" a day, if you can even call it that.

  • Please help! I REALLY need advice on this! Is it better to be a delivery driver for Pizza Hut or Dominos?

    I've got two interviews with both establishments. I've worked at Pizza Hut before and I loved it and made a lot of money, but I don't want to completely forgo Dominos without knowing what it's like.

    I'm in Texas and the Pizza Hut that I worked at had a $7.25 in store pay and while I was out delivering I was paid $4.50 plus tips. Plus $0.36 per mile I drove. I'd usually make about $40-$70 in tips each shift. Up to $100 on REALLY good days. I worked an average of 35 hours a week and got a paycheck every two weeks for about $350-$450. Both restaurants are located in suburbia.

    Can anyone tell me how Dominos compares

    How can I make my hair absorb and hold pastel purple and blue color better? And is Pravana a good brand to use for this?

    I've been using boxed dye for my hair to make it golden blonde for the past two years. I decided to change it up and go lavender by bleaching my hair and using Ultra Violet by Manic Panic diluted with conditioner. The color barely took to my hair and didn't really take at all to my ends which were still blonde. I tried again several times over the next couple of days using increasing amounts of dye in the dye/conditioner ratio but the purple on the top layers of hair were becoming too dark for my liking and the bottom layer were barely a silvery lavendery blonde color. It all faded quickly to silver, which is fine, but I want to go pastel blue next and I don't want another shitty uneven dye job.

    I was thinking about using the Pravana Pastels to achieve this because I've heard very good things about it (yes, I can get my hands on it). I just want to know if there is anything I can do beforehand to prevent this previous tragedy. Can I use the blue pastel dye over this silver hair and still achieve the desired effect? Or do I need to bleach or strip it? Should I just view my ends as a lost cause and cut them off?

  • I keep waking up nervous, nauseous, and sweaty.?

    I'm a 20 year old female and this didn't start until I was 18. It's been happening more often and it's causing me issues falling asleep. I'll be dozing off feeling perfectly fine. Right as I'm on the precipice of falling asleep, a deep sense of dread and nervousness snaps me awake. I all the sudden am nauseous and sweaty(mostly around the buttocks area). Normally, can get up and walk around for a few minutes and feel fine. A lot of the times attempting to make a bowel movement helps as well. But then I crawl into bed, try to sleep, and the same thing happens again.

    It used to only happen every few months, but now it happens whenever I'm feeling the least bit stressed. I thought maybe I was experiencing mild panic attacks, but I don't have any of the chest pain associated with them.

    Someone please help me out here, I really need a decent night's sleep.

  • My tonsils are swollen making it hard to swallow, but they're not sore. Any ideas what this is and what I should do?

    For the past couple days my tonsils have been swollen, but not sore or anything. They haven't changed color or anything, they're just huge. I thought it might be allergies so I took allergy medicine, but it's not helping.

  • Does this guy really have the authority to take/withhold my paycheck from me?

    I recently got a Job selling Cutco. I went to an advanced training class at the office to strengthen my skills. For those who don't know, Cutco is very fun oriented. We were making phone calls during the class and putting tallies on the board next to our names every time we booked an appointment. It was supposed to be a fun little competition to see who could book the most appointments. Also, every time we landed an appointment we had to yell YATZEE. A few people were not loud enough at first but were simply encouraged to be louder. I booked an appointment and yelled yatzee but one of the higher ups didn't think I was being loud enough. Now keep in mind that even though this guy is higher than me, he's definitely no manager. I tried again and he still wasn't satisfied, so his face suddenly gets really serious and he says, "If you're not louder, I WILL take away your CPO (paycheck)." I did yell it at a volume that was satisfactory to him, but only out of anger.

  • Is it possible for a girl to give a guy gonorrhea through oral sex?

    Okay, so I have an ex boyfriend who had had oral sex performed on him by a girl with gonorrhea. I was wondering if he could get it, and if he could, what are the odds of him contracting it. Because if he does get it, I'm going to laugh so hard.

  • Should I certify my domain registration?

    I am currently creating a website for my family's business( renting out a lake house). I've been given the option to certify the domain registration. Not only do I not fully understand what this means, I'm not sure if it's worth it. Our website builder is godaddy.com in case it matters.

  • Please help me! I've been having a period for 12 days! I've had the Mirena iud inserted. Is this normal!?

    After I got it inserted, I was told that my periods would become lighter and may even stop. My period came when it was supposed to, but it's been 12 days and it still hasn't ended. It's been a constant, light flow and hasn't showed any signs of stopping. I haven't been cramping or anything since about the 4th day. Just the constant flow. I'm really worried that it won't stop. Does anyone know what's happening?

  • Does the warranty for the iPad 2 cover a cracked screen?

    If not, what's the cheapest way I can fix it? I was walking through a parking lot when I dropped it. It landed on its corner on the concrete and over 50% of the screen is cracked. I wish Apple would make their products more durable. It's really disappointing since I've only had it for a little less than three months. ):

  • How long should I wait to have sex after inserting a Mirena iud?

    I just had Mirena inserted an hour ago. I'm a bit crampy, but nothing too bad. The doctor didn't tell me how long I should wait before having sex again. How does a few days or a week sound?

  • Has anyone else had a numbing shot before inserting an iud?

    I've done a ton of research on iud's as I am getting the Mirena iud inserted in about a week. I got rather confused when my doctor told me she would be giving my cervix a numbing shot before insertion. Out of all the research I've done and the reviews if read through and watched to prepare myself, not one of them said anything about a shot during the procedure. As I am painfully shy, I didn't want to ask my doctor. I've never had problems with shots before, but this one isn't exactly going in my arm, leg, or butt. My biggest questions are:

    1) Where do they give the shot( around or directly into the cervix)?

    2) Does it hurt? If so, what is the pain level?

    3) How does the shot effect the rest of the procedure?

    Keep in mind I have never had a child before, so that might be a reason for the shot. My cervix has never been stretched by childbirth. This leads me to question number 4:

    4) Why do you think she's giving me the shot? (Don't be afraid to share your opinion. There aren't really any wrong answers.

    Thank you for taking your time to read this. I would greatly appreciate any help, answers, or advice.
