September 15[edit]

Dancing to Jelly Roll Morton[edit]

I love Jelly Roll Morton, and would really like to know how to dance to his music. I know foxtrot is generally appropriate for ragtime, but is there a type of dancing that is more specific to early New Orleans jazz? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:31, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Identify a Juventus player![edit]

Who on earth's the one on the right? The other one's Melo, I know. (talk) 11:29, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

It looks like Diego Ribas da Cunha (known as simply Diego) the former Werder Bremen (and now Juventus) player. ny156uk (talk) 19:48, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Theme song[edit]

I'm looking for the lyrics to a theme songs from a tv show from the 90s. I thought the show was Full House, but the lyrics I've found don't match my memory. The lyrics I'm thinking of include the phrase "fresh start over several times a day" and something about "the higher you stand the further you fall". I've googled these, though, so must have remembered them a bit wrong. Ideas?

I think you mean the theme from Step by Step? TheFutureAwaits (talk) 12:36, 15 September 2009 (UTC)


merits and demerits of using television —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:28, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

See Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television. Pepso2 (talk) 12:47, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
See also Wasteland Speech and Newton N. Minow. --Jayron32 18:08, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Marshall McLuhan may also have a lot of good things to say about the subject. --Jayron32 18:10, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
This seems like it might be a HW question. besides, we would need context for what the OP means by "using television". Is it using it as a means of advertising? Watching it? Using it as an aquarium? Googlemeister (talk) 18:19, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
It isn't even a question, just a sentence fragment. We might assume "What are the" was meant to be inferred at the start, but the OP might have been thinking something else entirely. -- JackofOz (talk) 21:47, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Song Name[edit]

I can't remember the name of this song but it's by a female artist from the late 80s/early 90s and is mostly her singing lyrics such as "not what it seems" and "seems to me". Soft organ in the background I think. Any ideas? TheFutureAwaits (talk) 12:34, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Would it be Salvation (The Cranberries song)? (talk) 19:45, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

TI-84 plus[edit]

what are some cool programs I could add to my calculator?Accdude92 (talk) (sign) 13:49, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

All the programs will likely be the same temperature while in your calculator. In other words, can you better define "cool"? And also, have you tried Google? Dismas|(talk) 00:50, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Not necessarily, if you have a program that uses a lot of processing power, it'll probably heat the calculator up somewhat. (talk) 09:57, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
