Poll: Is death really a bad thing?

Unfortunately, my grandmother passed away this morning. And while I was thinking of how much all of her friends and family will miss her, I began thinking of something else. I began to think of how she used to cry about all of her friends and family that died before her and how she ll now be reunited with them. Atleast I can take solace in that.

But anyway, the question is do you believe death is really a bad thing?

Who thinks Barrock Obama has a chance of becoming the U.S. president?

Obama could be a good president, but I can bet my whole months pay that he’s not gonna win. If he becomes a nominee, the democratic party’s gonna lose. What’s up with people supporting the democratic party, hoping that there’s a chance they’re gonna win &amp: then end up voting for the republican party.??? It’s stupid. One reason why we ended up with George W. Bush, &amp: look at how that’s gone so far. But for right now, my pay’s on Clinton. Totally not being racist here. {i’m black}. I just have to be realistic here. Soo…
You think Obama could win? [[the nominations?]]

My dog ate 70% dark chocolate and I don t know what to do!?

My 18lb mini schnauzer ate a 3oz bar of 70% dark choc. about an hour ago. My husband and I gave her some hydrogen peroxide (2 table spoons) to induce vomiting and she threw up quite a bit of it. I called an emergency vet and they want to charge us a exorbitant fee that we are not in the best position, financially, to pay but my dog’s life is priceless to me. I’m asking for some advice from people who’ve been this in position. Thank you in advance.

How do Democrats feel about Obama s plummeting approval ratings?

According to many news sources Obama’s pole numbers are down to about 50%, while the Democrats are at a dismal 20% approval in Congress, fact.

So, with all that has happened, do you really think that Obama will keep the White House for a second term? We already know that the Democrats will lose the majority in Congress in 2010, that is already established. And you can forget about Obama in 2012, according to many news sources.

What is better to do? Buy or rent a house with 4 people?

I am starting uni next year and myself and my 3 friends want to attend the same uni and live together. We are unsure to buy or rent a house. We are still deciding between Melbourne and the Sunshine Coast. Which university is better? What is better, buy or rent a house? I have my mind set on renting, but my friends want to buy. I just think renting is cheaper for a uni student. Can anyone give me some advice?

To old for a 5 point harness car seat?

I have three children, ages 6, 5, and 3. Two years ago I made my husband buy 3 Britax car seats that used the 5 point harness up to 80 pounds. I am sort of neurotic about car safety and this helped ease my fears. The nearly $1000 price tag almost caused my poor husband to have an MI, but still it made me happy. Now that my son is 6 and about 50 pounds, my husband wants to know when I’ll be getting him out of the car seat. I replied that when he reaches the 80 pound maximum, I’d be retiring the seat. My son could care less if he sits in the seat or not, but my husband thinks that at some point he’ll be teased by his classmates. Am I being unreasonable about this, or should I reconsider?

P.S. I would be giving up the 5 point harness and just putting him in a booster with the seat belt as an alternative. NOT just sitting him in the seat!
