Ask your mom or your wife whichever is applicable. I am in need of finding the phone numbers for each significant hospital in Donetsk, Ukraine. However, I don't speak Russian.

People there might get upset if you think they speak Russian although I guess many of them would speak that as well. As to getting the number, one possibility would be to just call your long-distance telephone operator and ask if you can get directory assistance for Donetsk, Ukraine, then explain what you want.
You might end up reaching a human who lives there and knows the major hospitals, and speaks English. If you can get through to any one hospital in the city, perhaps the person you speak to there will be able to give you the phone numbers of some others. As to the www.

This is not a smartass answer. The answer will change according to your definition of each of those slippery words.

Greetings Wikipedia. Hi my name is Mark Himes. I was recently researching about lightsaber information and now I have questions for you. These questions came upon me after reading your page. Hopefully you can answer these questions.
I came up with these questions from my curiosity on this subject and the reading that you provided me with. Chamomile flowers are also popular in herbal teas.
Related to ragweed and goldenrod, chamomile can produce severe reactions in people sensitive to plants of that family. The trick in both cases is to obtain extracts of both products and use them in concentrated enough additive form to create the desired effect.
Meanwhile, from the other end, Doctor Christopher Garwood Doyle has a prescription that could really get a mark moving.
Syrup of ipecac is a common purgative, easily available. When the mark goes to the bathroom or is otherwise out of the area, mix one tablespoon of syrup in ipecac in with the drink. After that, bombs away! The mark will begin violent projectile vomiting, which really messes up the nearby environment and anyone else who happens to be the way.
They threw the book at us because we were supposed to be mature medical students. So we figured he who tattles about booze shall also toss his booze. He says the secret is to select a carrier drink that will hide the taste and consistency of the syrup.
Another good remedy for a hotshot is cascara sagrada, made from the dried root of a thorny shrub found on the American West Coast. It produces violent diarrhea. The mark was with his girlfriend and her parents in their family car. He just started letting go with loud, wet, explosive bursts. They took him to a hospital,but by then the additive was through his system and the storm had subsided.
That surely is super powerful stuff. This was always with other girls, of course—his regular girlfriend knew nothing about all of this. He thought he was macho stuff and gave her hell for it.
This will cause him to literally shit his pants and drip at the heels. As a final note, Kascaba says not to use this powerful additive with older folks, because it weaken them to the point of very serious medical complications such as dehydration which may kill them.
Have some respect for the elderly, think of your grandmother! She knew that Operation Substitute was a bald success when she saw her mark in a local store several weeks later, wearing a large scarf on his head. Vinegar makes a great substitute for nose drops or in nasal-spray devices. One especially nasty person also suggested it for use in eye drops. Airlines Arrange to have a friend meet you at the terminal gate when you deplane.
Before your friend leaves the airport with your luggage, be sure to get your claim checks back. Then, you saunter over to the baggage area, spend half an hour waiting for your bags. Very few flights ever have a clerk actually check the baggage and collect claim checks.
Make a polite, but firm scene and demand satisfaction. Normally, the airline people will have you fill out a form and they will attempt to find your luggage. Bug them some…write them letters. Soon, you should get a good settlement from the airline. Leaving the airlines and aiming for the individual mark, you can do a lot of personal damage. For instance, if you find your mark is going to use airline travel, you could call and cancel the reservations.
You could also slip some drugs into his pocket at the same time. Read a book on pick pocketing to note the technique for doing this. Leave accurate-looking, but totally bogus hijack scenario plans, bomb diagrams, or orders of battle for terrorist attacks in airport bars and restrooms. This fires up both the rent-a-cops and the real security people.
The security delays and resultant hassles with passengers create unhappy people who are angry at airports and airlines. Naturally, the blame for these plans must focus on your mark. Leaving the airlines and aiming for individual mark, you can do a lot of personal damage. For instance, if you find that your mark is going to use airline travel and there are only a few travel agents in town, you could call until you find the correct one and cancel the reservations. Read a book on pick-pocketing to note the technique for doing this.
Bill Cutcheon sometimes poses as a Moonie, Hare Krishna devotee, or other cultist and goes to airports. His goal is to act like a completely obnoxious fool. He really hams it up, usually getting tossed out after totally grossing out the passengers. Another Cutcheon stunt is to leave accurate-looking but totally bogus hijack scenario plans, bomb diagrams, or orders for terrorists attacks in airport bars and restrooms.
I got back at a motorcycle gang by doing this once, after they had sideswiped my truck and refused to pay damages. Egan and his friends use those little metal clickers shaped like frogs to ward of religious solicitors. I knew a chap who became annoyed at a Krishna who followed him out of the Indianapolis airport, verbally abusing him for not making a contribution.
After the few necessary seconds of attack, he calmly replaced himself, zipped up, and walked away. A bemused security cop nearby tried to hide his laughter.
Animals If your mark is an oily cuss with a credibility problem you should easily pull off this stunt. It involves a cop, reporters, SPCA folks and some farm animals. Explain that you have no morals against animal fighting but you lost big money there last time and think the fights are fixed. Next call your mark and report to him that some people are holding dog or cock fights on his property. Call the reporters and SPCA and tell them all about the fight. Mention that your mark and the cops have a payoff relationship.
Give everyone the same general arrival time, never be too specific. Hopefully, all will sort of show up at the same time. You might manipulate things so the press and animal lovers show up first. If you want a stronger story, find a dead dog on the road or something and plant it near by and tell the reporters and SPCA where to find the evidence.
It will be fun to hear your mark and the cops talk about everything to the reporters. Dead animals are very useful. Wait until your mark goes on a trip and will be leaving his car or house empty for several days. Get into the car or house and stuff very large and very dead animals everywhere. Your mark will probably have to sell his car and fumigate his house when he returns.
If you are bothered by big dogs chasing you just take a good quality plastic water pistol and fill it with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Apartments Your mark lives in an apartment? Of course, this same stunt would work on a house, but an apartment lockout disturbance causes more of a public scene. Quietly fix a hasp and keeper on the door and frame using wooden screws. Then slap a padlock on the new fixture. It creates a great deal of frustration if that door is the only way out of the apartment.
This works well in ritzy apartments where the neighbors are snobs. How do you get by the security people? One way is to pose as a delivery person, a service person, a building inspector, or someone on a work crew.
You can also hire an accomplice in the building, or you can bribe the door guard. Suppose you are the victim of a nasty landlord who evicts you for no good reason. Make this extracurricular subletting your going-away surprise. Another person I know went to the local animal shelter on several different days and got a total of fifteen cats for twenty-five dollars. He bought a bunch of cat food and a bushel basket of fish, and filled his bathtub with water for them.
He then nailed every window and door shut from the inside before crawling out the tiny casement window in the basement. He had previously nailed the basement door shut behind him. Obviously, he had moved his things out several days previously. My God, what a mistake that man made. To say that that cat house was an uninhabitable mess is an understatement.
This upset the old biddy who owned the building, and being a staunch, Godfearing charter member of the DAR, she canceled his lease and ordered him to leave the building. The seventh-floor window faced a busy business street, and the sign was quite visible to many hundreds of people. The landlady saw both signs and removed them. Two days later, she got a letter from Tim, with a picture enclosed showing her building with the signs easily visible.
He asked her please to desist. At A. Shaken, she swore her innocence. Ten minutes after hanging up, he called back, sounding furious because Tim had just called him about the latest sign. Flabbergasted, the old lady swore she would remove it and loudly proclaim her innocence. She was almost in tears because of his threats to sue. She begged to just talk to Tim, to tell him none of this was her doing. The attorney told her that he had advised his client to have no further discussions with her.
That evening, a new sign went up. The attorney called her five minutes after she go back to her own apartment. The was no such clause. I found out she had done this same thing to two other guys a year before and some guys before that. That bugged me. In his best tones, the attorney explained that enough was enough and that on behalf of his client, Mr.
Carroll, he would be filing an action. The woman was distraught. He told her to have her attorney present for a meeting at three the following afternoon. He asked her who attorney was and said the meeting should be in his office. Tim and his attorney postponed this meeting several times, then told the woman that since she had stopped putting up the signs, they would hold the suit in limbo for the time.
Reportedly, she monitored the halls and windows of that building regularly for five months. But more importantly, she also left her tenants to their own moral lives. Assassination Suppose you have a mark whose ill temper has created problems for you. Or perhaps this mark is simply an obnoxious nut whose obsessions have cost you personally.
An apolitical and highly dedicated professional, he was concerned only with healthcare for the kids in the community. A hyper, rightwing zealot jumped on the issue and scared the town council with his insane babble. Sighing, he gave up his fight and put his time back into his practice. The kids never got their fluoride treatment, and as a result he had a lot of business.
In the hypocritical piety following the assassinations of the sixties, physical security was supposedly tightened to protect the chief executive chosen by the power brokers who now control the United States. A former law-enforcement official with a probable intelligence background offered an astounding dirty trick related to this topic. Often, these people are jailed, kept under protective custody, or placed under twenty-four-hour surveillance by authorities when political targets are in the area.
Bishop says this will also work with state officials, bringing a visit from state police or some other law enforcement official. Wait outside the showroom until a prospective customer starts talking to a salesperson about the same type of car you got.
Walk right up to the customer and tell him you woeful story. Sincere good faith is the thing here, because the salesman is going to blow his about the second time you pull your act.
You had anticipated this earlier and alerted someone at the local newspaper or television station—probably the action-line reporters. A regional TV station may show up — if you promise a confrontation with the law. So when the manager calls the police, you call your TV reporter — fun and games for the P.
Tell your story there and then. Offer to help them avoid your mistake. But stay on public property. And keep after the action-line reporters. Look at new cars; wander around. Few salespeople pay much attention to an obvious gawker. As soon as someone else or a telephone distracts the salesperson, you can do things to the automobile right there in the showroom. A bottle opener is hard on the finish.
See the file on additives for things you could quickly put into the fuel tank. If you could smuggle some in with you, stuff roadkill under a car seat or in the glove compartment. Or toss a condom preferably used on thefront seat. If you can manage to slip undetected into the service area along with your bag of sabotage goodies, such as glue, wire cutters, paint, potatoes, M80s, etc.
Work quietly and quickly. Banks It could be time to make your bankroll. According to Townsend Alexander, our financial intelligence agent, you can make good money buying some very cheap foreign coins that are the same size as quarters. Get a paper coin wrapper. Wrap a few real quarters on the ends but fill the rest of the roll with the cheapie import coins. Wrap the roll and with felt-tip pen write some phony account number on it to add to authenticity.
Take the roll of coins into the targeted bank. If you dress like a business person and go at a busy time, especially with the account number written on each roll, and the rolls in a bank sack or your briefcase, the teller will probably give you ten dollars per roll without checking. Suppose you have a gripe with the bank. Offer to give away free albums or Walkman radios.
Modern banks now have cash machines where you insert your plastic money card and the machine gives you the money. Take some tough, hard cheese and cut it the same size and shape asyour plastic card. One banker told me it took a service person nine hours to clean the machine and get it operating again when someone pulled this stunt in Baltimore.
Rent a safe-deposit box under another name. Pay cash for a three-month rental. Carry them wrapped in plastic in your briefcase. Go directly to your safe deposit box. Close it, lock it, and store it. Then carry the fish wrappers, briefcase, and yourself out of the bank. In a few days your deposit will gain their interest.
You finally pass each other in good dodgem-car fashion. Wonderful stuff, adrenaline. Instantly, the bike stops going forward while the rider continues onward until gravity takes over. Until then I will stick to the old standards that have worked for me so far. But maybe if those young riders learn some manners early and stay the hell off pedestrian walkways, they might grow up to be decent people. Our private library consultant, Roberta Russell, has a suggestion with an air of financial finality behind it.
Buy two or three dozen used hardcover books. Your next step is to paste on the bookplates and distribute these books — at the beach, on park benches, in a bus or subway, or in a bar or restaurant. If your mark has a fine library, you might consider introducing it to silverfish. They love good books; in fact they will devour them. If you feel this nasty, you probably already know where to get silverfish and their eggs. This one bothers me, though, since I love good books. Why not give your mark the image of a philanthropic person?
Buy a bunch of really skuzzy porno paperbacks, especially the colorfully illustrated ones from Denmark — the more grossly hardcore, the better. Put some in the children section, and others in the religion books.
Campuses Not everyone is hibernating on college campuses. At an eastern university, a number of students got upset with the rent gouging of a massive corporation acting as an absentee landlord for private off-campus dormitories. After getting nowhere appealing to an untesticled school administration, and after being ignored by a housing inspector and a city council belonging to the same social class and clubs as the corporate landlords, the students held a pizza party.
The unusual part was that the pizza party was held in the clothes dryers of the dormitory laundry rooms. Epilogue: The corporate landlord and his student tenants settled their problems shortly after the party, totally to the satisfaction of the young protestors. Professor James Shannon claims that college students of the past had heinous imaginations. Today, of course, many students are content merely to move around enough to prevent roots from forming on their contact surfaces with the ground.
When the academic leans forward on the structure ever so slightly, it will come crashing forward. With any luck the pedagogue will land on top of it. The professor was in the habit of arriving quite early for AM class, early enough so that the hasty-tempered birds would just be awakening. When he opened the closet door they woke up and became badly aggressive really fast. Eyewitness reports left no doubt whose feathers were ruffled most.
This will be truly appreciated only by those privy to the pettiness of academia: Other colleagues of this same professor sometimes send truly pedantic, nasty, personal, and vindictive memoranda to various other faculty members, deans, etc.
As for the mark, the dumb schmuck had no idea why so many people disliked him. But please take his colleagues word for it — he deserves every bit of it. Carbide Having been brought up around hunters and miners, I learned all about carbide lamps and carbide fishing early. Let me explain some things you might find useful. When calcium carbide is exposed to air and water it produces a gas that will kill small animals.
Farmers often pour it down gopher, rat, or groundhog holes, then dump in some water and put a rock over the hole.
The animal is gassed to death. A lot of poor people used to fish with carbide with the same efficiency with which legions of GIs fished with hand grenades.
Simply toss a pound or two of carbide into a can and seal it, but be sure to punch a few holes in the lid. Toss it into a pond. Water and carbide can produce an explosion. Some of the nastier kids used to place amounts of carbide into the toilets at our school. The idea was to place the carbide bomb in the toilet, leave a lighted cigarette on the seat, and run like hell. The carbide would combine with the water to produce a huge cloud of noxious gas, which would explode when it hit the lighted cigarette the perpetrators left behind.
This little homemade bomb did more damage than an M He always went to the john after fourth period to sneak a smoke. So two of us went in right after him and laid a carbide bomb in the water in the next stall. We were about a hundred feet down the hall when the damn thing went off. I was able to learn, thoughthat the bully had his legs burned and cut by flying porcelain, bit his tongue badly, was knocked violently off the throne, bruising his ribs against the steel wall of the stall, and was deafened for nearly twenty-four hours, all by the force of this carbide explosion.
Are there more adult uses for carbide? Some sixties semi-terrorists used to dump a pound or so into the toilets of corporate offices and government buildings, flush the mess into the system, and walk away briskly. Enough of the stuff could get very dangerous, considering the possible backup of gases. A combination of water and carbide has been fed into the ventilating systems of various corporate and government buildings, also by semi-terrorists who wish to harass the resident bureaucrats.
Sooner or not much later, the wheel will simply roll off the car. Willy Seamore, a top mechanic, suggests you extend the cable, then place the lead weight on the extended portion, which effectively blocks it from returning. From choking up to locking up is hardly a quantum experience. The new miracle glues are impregnable when squirted into car door keyholes.
Nothing short of a locksmith can repair this low-risk attack. Now is the time to squirt glue into the lock. The job is more permanent and more costly to repair.
If you tire of fooling with the locks, you can look elsewhere. The car moves back and the wheels roll over the nails, puncturing the tires. You could tear them a bit.
More than a hint of perfume or flavored douche will always hype suspicion. You can escalate this stunt somewhat if you buy male underwear —get the sexy style in white—and place some lipstick smears around the fly area. You can help the campaign along by having a very trusted lady friend call and ask nervously for the mark.
The younger she sounds, the better. Have her call several times. If the mark is a woman, a pack of condoms carelessly hidden in the car is always a sure-grow plant. Several daint handkerchiefs of the type favored by milady and heavily impregnated with semen can also be stuffed in the car. As with the male, a series of appropriately timed telephone calls from a nervous male will add to the marital festivities between mark and spouse. In less carnal surroundings, if you can get to the distributor cap, remove it and use graphite from a pencil to contact the rotor brushes.
The charge will run along the graphite, causing the engine to misfire. This could cause the mark to dash into his local car butcher and get charged an outrageous price for an unnecessary tune-up.
A quick way to disable a car battery is to slip a couple of Alka-Seltzer tablets or a teaspoonful of baking soda into each battery compartment. According to Lee H. Santana, a real straight shooter in the dirty-tricks department, the pin pricks cause a hellishly rumpety noise when the car is driven. It would sink to the bottom of the tank and not much would be introduced into the engine, he explained.
The idea is to get the additive to the bearing surfaces, where the coarse little buggers can kick and scratch up a mechanical breakdown. Silicone carbide, emery powder, and fine metal filings will work. The alcohol will gather up all the water in the fuel trap, and when this mixture goes through the fuel line it will cause the vehicle to snort, stammer, and act as if it has big carb troubles. By the time the driver gets the vehicle to a mechanic, the problem has usually Gods Practical Joke - D-Bakl out the exhaust pipe.
Done enough times, this one can redline the frustration and credibility levels of both the driver and the mechanic. Styrene, a colorless, oily liquid, is an organic compound that is one of the two chemicals mixed together to make hardened fiberglass. Boat-supply stores and marinas have styrene available for patching fiberglass boats. It is also used in body shops and upholsteryrepair places. If you find that your mark is going alone to a movie you have an hour or so to have some fun with his automobile.
After you start it, drive to some very nice homes with pretty lawns. But stay fairly near the theater, so you can get back there in a hurry. Do donuts, dig out, and otherwise use the car to make a shambles of lawns, shrubbery, flower beds, etc. Run over lawn furniture, hit mailboxes, and try to frighten some old people by coming really close to them with the car.
This is a real hit-and-run mission. This is not sometthing you want to experience. You might also want to read Rayleigh scattering. I remember being told that different coloured ski goggles were better for different conditions; one colour for bright sun, one for falling snow, one for fog. I don't remember which colours or why. A small note: I've been wearing blue-tinted glasses full time for about two and a half years.
I've yet to notice any ill effects. I wear them when it is snowing as well. Trngl12 December UTC [ ]. Shahinarashid8 December UTC [ ]. Can you tell RBD that I said "!
I ran my 40 gb 4th generation ipod through the washing machine, it dried out and will work when plugged in to power, but only when plugged in. I think the battery is shot. Can you recomend the best and preferably cheapest way of getting this taken care of?
It is still under warranty, but I think that this wouldn't be covered by it. Also, are there longer lasting batteries out there? Posted by As a point of interest, a Game Boy Advance cartridge of ours was lost for months before we found it in a trouser pocket. That thing probably went though a thousand washes, and the thing worked at still does, perfectly it's Yoshi's Island by the way. However, I once sat on another cartridge just after swimming in the sea and still wet.
It was in a pool of salt water under my bottom. The internal clock broke, although the game was Pokemon Ruby so that may not have been to do with that.

How long would it take to go from Tintagel to Edinburgh on a horse if you could only take roman roads or oldr roads? Partial answer 4. This is based on a horse running at a constant top speed of 40 mph over a straight line distance of about miles. This is a rotten answer as the horse would not be able to keep the speed up for that length of time, nor is the distance a flat straight line. If you're doing this for a story I'm assuming that's what it is, since you asked about Roman and earlier roadsthen try this.
You'll need to measure the Roman roads - if your map has no scale, just trace it out onto one that has a scale and add it up. Then do you know what kind of horse they would have used? There is this guy who sells classic vintage restored toasters on the Upper West Side. I can't remember the name of him, his store or website! My grandmother's birth Tinklepotty - Split (Cassette) states that she was born November 5, in Valley,Mississippi.

Can anyone help guide me in the right direction? Ray Smith rsmith aol. Just a thought but is it possible the birth certificate should read Mississippi Valley and just got written up backwards? It's possible if she was born outside of a community. The other thought is, could the community name have got dropped off?
As an example, Bigbee Valley is in Mississippi. If the certificate is the original then a mistake is less likely but if it's a later reproduction an error could have crept in. I would try and find old maps of Mississippi and see if there is anything on them. What is the origin of the Slovak surname "Bensko" or "Bencko"?
Reader Tom has sent the following question to the Wikimedia Help Desk. I am looking for a source to authenticate the markings on the rifle. Can you help in this. Capitalistroadster9 December UTC [ ]. Try  and . The second one may be able to help with the markings. I have a tool that I need help identifying. It look like a long, thin pair of tongs. The whole thing is about 16 inches long. On this end, both sides of the "tongs" are the same.
On the other end, the sides are different. On one side, the end is round with a nearly elliptical hole about 2. The other side does not have a hole. This end aligns with the middle of the hole on the other side. I have looked on the internet and could not find anything. Any help is appreciated. Yeah, I've used this tool several times. It is used to expand the leather of tight fitting shoes in specific spots.
You press the inner part of the shoe outwards to releive the leather. I do not know the proper name of the tool, but we at work called it the boot stretcher.
I can not say for sure, but that is what it looks like to me. Pert near identical. Someone I work with mentioned that people in Louisiana used to be taxed on how much road frontage their house had. The wider the house, the more the tax. Therefore people built houses that were extremely long where all the rooms were basically in a row along one long hallway. Has anyone ever heard of this? Is there any truth to this? I meant U. Mwalcoff11 December UTC [ ]. Can anyone identify any of the flowers in this photo?
The one at the front looks like a Tiger Lilly. The white ones look like roses and the rest look like unopened tiger lillies. The lilies are specifically "Stargazer lilies" and they have a wonderful fragrance that is very strong! The unopened ones are stargazer lilies waiting to happen. I think "tiger lilies" is usually used for orange colored lilies; I'm not sure how they are botanically related, but I think tiger lilies are a wild type species, while stargazers are hybrids.
I have a 5 yr old male dog, and I'm about to buy a new puppy. Should I get a male or a female? If both are desexed, they won't attempt t mate, will they? Are two male dogs more aggressive than one? Is there, or was there ever, a news agency called Associated Foreign Press? If so, who are they? If not, where did the name come from? I have seen it cited as a news source several times on the web, and had previously assumed that it was what AFP stood for, but now find out that it isn't.
A Google search shows hits - seemingly too few for a real agency, but too many to be a mistake. Surely zdnet, NASA and 'Liberia's Most Trusted News Source' aren't all citing a ficticious agency, but a real agency that doesn't have a web site or a Wikipedia article is quite an enigma. I'm mystified. Does anyone have any ideas? Could that be what you're thinking of? Why is Mozilla Firefox not printing Kannada text properly. Its prints square box is showing the text properly.

It has been turned into a joke in recent years by being applied to trivia, but few people even know where the phrase came from. I'm looking for a cooking utensil that was popular in Miami during the s and s called the "disco volador" or "flying saucer". It consisted of two slightly concave disks, attached to each other at the edges by a hinge, and having two handles projecting from the opposite edges.
Bread would be placed in the concave dishes, and then covered with various fillings. Then, the handles would be brought together, clamping the dishes together, and the whole thing would be heated over a stove until cooked various items sticking out would be trimmed off. When the handles were opened, a completely enclosed delicious grilled sandwich would be inside.
They do not seem to be available anywhere that I can find locally, nor can I find information about them they are not panino. Please tell me if there is anywhere I can buy this cooking ware.
