    "Exist" is probably not the word I should have used. Native Americans are everywhere. There are thousands of people who have Native American blood in them. Just because someone doesn't look Native American doesn't mean that they aren't. When you walk down the street, it is very likely that you will pass by someone with Native American blood, just like it is possible that you will pass someone with German or Irish or Chinese or African blood.

And I looked up the pH, boiling, and freezing points in a chemical book; wherever you looked them up must be using a different concentration than the chemical book where I looked them up (as boiling and freezing points are also dependent on concentration). It's not something that we should really waste our time arguing about. Although I am curious as to how your book says that HCl freezes at -114 C and boils at -85 C, yet it is a liquid at room temperature at 23 C...
    Yeah, the pH of 1M hydrochloric acid is definitely 0 (for some reason, without a calculator, I couldn't remind myself that log 1 = 0). But I fail to understand why any source would give values for any sort of aqueous solution because, as you said, its properties are contingent on its concentration (unless there are listed values for many concentrations, because knowing just one is nearly useless). Moreover, why on earth would such a weak concentration as 0.1M be used as a standard? That's ludicrous. And the boiling/melting points I gave are for hydrogen chloride; yours were for some arbitrary concentration of hydrochloric acid (actually, I took the liberty of looking it up, and as it turns out, at least the boiling point is for its azeotropic concentration, which explains why it's so uncannily close to water, but still). They're totally different chemicals, and you shouldn't use their names interchangeably.

    Never mind the fact that their culture has been thoroughly destroyed, I guess.

    now i get this patriotism thing,
    If you got it then you wouldn't be asking the question in the first place.

    Anyway, while you may not be seeing the Japanese celebrating us killing their people in mass, we honor the day Pearl Harbor was attacked just like we do 9/11. It's the same exact thing.

    Okay, I've got another unrelated question:

    When someone has bipolar disorder, does it need to have a specific cause? Like, something in a person's life which causes frequent mood changes? Or is it just a result of mental instability and doesn't necessarily need any stimulus?

    i dont think they know the exact reason for the switch. but like its gots lots to do with changing brain chemicals and that can sometimes be affected by whats going on in the person's life. but there isnt like something that would make a person switch between the moods every time.

    Although I'm sure this is true, most mental disorders also do have triggers that are different for every person. I'm not bipolar, and I don't know anyone who is, nor am I a psychiatrist/medical doctor, but from the limited amount I know about this, although there need not be a trigger to instigate the mood changes, there are people who do have triggers.

    well there are some things that can trigger an episode or depression or mania. im just saying there isnt a trigger that always causes them to go into one. like a person who has too much work due the next day can trigger an episode, but wont do it every time he has too much work to do the next day.

    I currently have a set of Phillips headphones, think earbuds but with a piece that goes over the ear to keep it in place. They help if you like moving around (like, I go running with them), but the piece also functions as a bass plate, and gets some of the deeper sound to be more prominent. I got my pair for around $30. Skullcandy also makes a lot of good quality headphones (both buds and overear) that are fairly close to your price range. I do recommend them, I had a pair for a couple years before they finally started to break.

    I've got a couple unrelated questions:

    -In the Star Wars movie The Phantom Menace does Darth Maul ever speak?

    -Is it possible to create silver/metallic text in Powerpoint? I'm giving a presentation in a materials class this week and wanted to use it, if possible.

    Edit: I got something to work for me. In PP '07, when you select text, a 'drawing tools' option comes up at the top. Select 'wordart styles', and you can apply various looks, including gray metal, white metal and gold (about 30 different options).

    Tbh, i was actually thinking about this as well, a while ago. I'm pretty sure he has a short conversation with Darth Sideous. Something about revealing themsleves to the Jedi.

    Yeah. I figured it out though. I just needed to be more thorough in my search.

    I personally wouldn't pay anything for it. You might check e-bay/amazon or something to see what comparable things are going for, or call a used game store. I know a used ps2 costs about 50 U.S.$ around here, so don't get your hopes up too much.

    Because this is one of my FAVORITE questions ever. And you know, we will never ever know if the thing I see when I see green is the same thing that you see when you see green. It's a really difficult concept to wrap your head around, but there's no way to prove that everyone sees the same colors.

    And that's just humans. We know for sure that birds can see into the ultraviolet spectrum, which means that they see colors that we don't even have names for. Color perception is such a great concept to debate about

    Yeah, like what others see are different but you can't really deny it because you agree on it but it's different in their eyes. xD
