  • Where is Dante's Peak set?

    In the movie. I'm guessing it's not a real volcano, but what state or country is it supposed to be in?

    Thanks.

  • What is the most boring movie you have ever watched?

    Just to be clear, not movies you dislike because movies you dislike can capture your interest, make you angry or sad or disgusted. Asking for movies that struck no feeling in you except boredom and impatience.

    One I saw lately was 6 Souls. The first half hour was good, but then it dragged.

    So what you would consider the most boring movie?

  • Favorite Jason Bateman movie?

    Movies only please. I like Arrested Development but everyone would pick that, so for the sake of variety, let's stick to movies or anything that isn't Arrested Development.

  • Need quick answer. I sent an appeal to Yahoo! Answers. If the appeal is rejected, does it mean . . .?

    that my account will be deleted?

    Everything I read about the process before I submitted the appeal was that the penalty for a rejected appeal is 10 more points subtracted. I sent one because I didn't know why I had been reported and was hoping for a clearer explanation, so I don't make the same mistake again.

    So I sent the appeal, and the next screen tells me that if the appeal was successfully submitted, the team will reply to it in the next 24 to 48 hours, and if they decide not to appeal, my account and my questions will be deleted.

    If I had known that was possible, I would not have appealed. I don't want to lose my account. What should I do? Is there any way I can contact the Yahoo Answers people to explain my situation and save my account?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Do you know anyone who was actually offended because someone else celebrated a different holiday?

    You hear about it a lot in the news, but that fuss is usually aimed at businesses or public places, not individuals in their homes. Though I know a lot of people with peculiar judgments, I can't think of anyone that actually disapproved that someone was or wasn't celebrating a specific holiday.

    I don't mean religions. People fight about religion all the time. I'm specifically asking about holidays. Do you know any people that work themselves up to a tizzy because someone they know is celebrating (or not celebrating) a different holiday?

  • Is Girl In Landscape by Jonathan Lethem a young adult or adult book?

    I'm assigned to read a science fiction or fantasy book for a class. I started Girl in Landscape. It was in the adult section of the library but I'm wondering if the book would be considered YA because it's short and the protagonist is a teenaged girl.

    I'm asking because the book for this assignment is supposed to be adult level books. The teacher considers reading YA books to be cheating.

    Would you consider this book to be adult or YA?

    Thank you

  • Are there any cell phones in steampunk literature?

    I was browsing through a book on steampunk themed crafts. One of the crafts was decorating a cellphone case, which I thought was odd because I wasn't sure there were cell phones in steampunk. But I haven't read much of the genre. Are there any cell phones, or any type of portable phones, in any steampunk stories?

  • Isn't it strange that people ask . . .?

    . . . whether it's okay for them to watch a scary movie alone or not?

    I'm never really sure what to answer. I can understand that some people would prefer to watch scary movies alone because it's less unnerving for them. But why are they asking us (strangers) about it? Different people have different ideas of what is scary, so how am I (or how are we) supposed to know what movies a certain person will find scary and how come they don't know if a movie about demonic possession or serial killers will freak them out?

    And I'm wondering if this is a new variation of the "you can't play Ouija alone" urban legend: like if they watch certain movies alone they will get possessed or killed by Samara or something? Or is it a roundabout way of asking if a movie is that scary?

    I'm just wondering why this is such a hard decision that they need to consult other people for it. Whether they want to watch it with a group or alone is fine with me. I just don't get why they wouldn't know what kind of movies scare them. Could anyone help me understand this behavior?

  • When are grapes in season?

    I love grapes but the ones I'm seeing in supermarkets look not so appealing recently. I'm wondering if it's just because grapes aren't in season in August and September.

  • Is Goodwill open on 4th of July?

    Don't have work. Libraries are closed. I like shopping for used books at Goodwill. Does anyone know if the stores would be open tomorrow in the US?

  • Books about shoplifting and kleptomania?

    I just saw The Bling Ring. Earlier this month I read a psychology book that had a chapter on kleptomania. I'm finding the subject fascinating. Can you recommend any good books about these subjects. Fiction or nonfiction: either is fine.

    For the record, no, I don't plan on putting anything I read into practice. Believe me, I don't imagine I'm clever or reckless enough to pull it off. And I understand shoplifting hurts people who work in stores in the long run and I wouldn't want to do that.

  • Good books about depression?

    Can be fiction or nonfiction, though I prefer the sensationalizing be kept to a minimum.

    Thank you.
