• When to use "is" or "are" in a sentence?

    My sentence is: How are the perimeter doors protected? Word wants to change "are" to "is" but "is" is regarding a singular- when my subject (doors) is plural. This is driving me crazy, and its been years since I took grammar in school, so can someone help me out here please?

  • Would you rather be skinny and look older or...?

    The thinner you are - the older you look, while the fatter you are the younger you look. Which would you rather be knowing that it affects how old you look. Fat and young looking, or Skinny and older looking?

  • Answering questions- how do you feel...?

    Do you ever feel that some questions are just too stupid to answer! Sometimes I have to get out of a question because I just can't believe they asked that. Am I the only one that feels this way?

I have the new xbox 360 4gb model, and I can't get it to connect to the internet. At first when I go on, it connects and asks me to update, the update completes and resets, and then that's it- I lose connection and I have never been able to connect to xBox live. It says it can't find the IP address. So I reset the router, and still it's a no go. Now I know it's the xBox, because my Wii is sitting right next to it, and I have no problems at all connecting with it. So far I'm so disappointed in the xBox. This is my first one, and so far I haven't found anything really good about it :( So, if anybody has any ideas- please help me change my mind about the xbox! :) 10 points for the first answer that actually works!

    So I just broke down and bought the new Xbox 360 Kinect bundle. Now I admit that this was NOT my first choice in a game console. The reason is because so many of the games are shoot-em up gory rated M games. I'm an adult female and I love playing video games like Super Mario for Wii, and Tomb Raider for PS. So, give me some suggestions of some not so violent gory games that may compare to those types of games. I love to be able to be immersed in the game by exploring the world in it. So, Please help me out here with some suggestions :)

  • The most disappointing games you've bought for the Wii?

    I just spent 75.00 on 2 games- "Boogie Superstar" and "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" And let me say...How I wish I would have rented them first!!! The Boogie game would be sooo much better if they wouldn't have totally screwed up the songs. Anybody else have this experience? Rant and rave while it's open ;)

  • How to get cat hair / lint off bridesmaid dress?

    I just pulled my bridesmaid dress out of the closet to get altered for the wedding next week, and somehow my cat got in the closet and the cat hair got inside the bag with the dress. It is so staticky that I can't get it off- it jumps around. I don't want to ruin the dress. What wil be good for it- it's a satin dress.
