What would cause headlights, taillights, power door locks, power seats and interior lights to stop working on a 95 Buick Century?Rradio resets to am every time car is turned off. Clock resets too. Radio works. Windows don't either.

Question found in Auto Diagnostics
Your lights should be on a separate circuit than the radio and windows. This is more likely several separate issues if not related to your battery, terminals and corrosion, or alternator. Inspect each individual fuse on both panels, clean or change the battery terminals to insure a good fit, charge the battery, and look for water or moisture/condensation on the bulb terminals if not a fuse or faulty wiring related. This car almost sounds as if it has been in a flood.

The alternator could also be failing even though it will start. The radio typically resets when the connection is lost completely due to the current drop while starting as does the clock. When the battery is disconnected you can re-create this effect as will pulling the fuse to it. It would make more sense if these were all separate issues and may need to be treated as such. Good luck.

Why do you have to wear socks when swimming at Antarctica?

Discuss this question

Question found in Animals & Nature
It is not required but one reason is to keep the feet from making direct contact with ground mostly during the transition to the thermal heated water and back. Its like sticking your tongue to a frozen flag pole. It will come off, but after losing skin and much pain.

My fiance and I have been engaged for 2 years. Just lately this year he has changed. He said he believes in the greater good, he wants to do something that means something, something he will be remembered for and him not doing that is making him a very miserable person and it really is. He is never happy anymore, everything is an argument. He tells me I am simple minded and a peasant for thinking the way I do. I respect his views I really do. I don't really understand it but I respect it. Shouldn't he respect mine? He is beginning to become hard to live with, I do everything for him and all he does is play a video game all day. He says he will never be happy until he does whatever to be remembered but he's making me miserable with him. What can I do? What do I do? I love him to death, I mean he's my fiance and I want nothing more then to spend the rest of my life with him. On Valentines Day he gave me presents and I gave him his and then he got on the computer to play his game. All I wanted was some time with him and he didn't want to spend it with me. Have I just just became routine for him?

The world is full of many people who want to do good and nearly all of them accomplish what they feel in their hearts as the best approach. This site is a great example of that because, (speaking for myself), it allows me to maybe make a difference to someone who can build a better life learning from my mistakes and the knowledge I have gained in making them. Maybe he is the same in his concerns and simply can't express it in words as he would like to. I often have this problem as you may be able to tell.

We watch people change all of the time and when that change may become even close to radical, it is cause for concern. If your fiance is only going through a recent change, this is probably temporary. This can be health, financial, extended family concerns, and other related causes, and they are all legitimate ones. There are also martyrs and those like them, (sorry, I am obligated to say it), as well, and even the closest people to them do not realize this until it is too late. This doesn't mean that I think this in your situation, but others will read this stuff too and maybe it will be of some help to them.

In an attempt to be more positive, he sounds as if he's trying to find himself and the reason why he is there. Look at what he may have gone through in his life to get to his current situation. Surely you have inspired him in some way in the past and you seem genuine and willing to help as much as you can. It can sometimes stall and become a form of depression, fear of becoming average or just his need to change the world around him in a more positive way. His comments to you are a little too harsh and you can't base your existence on someone elses opinion, not even his if he's speaking to you this way. If you do, you are hurting yourself and possibly your children in the future. If you pry into his mind too much it may become more obvious and it may even help him discover what he needs to, although, many men do not respond well to this approach.

I can only add that you seem to be doing the best that you can, given the circumstance, but you have very good reason to have concern for him. Only you will know how close you two really are based on your time invested with him and only you will know for sure if you are going down the wrong path or not. These phases come and go often, but adhere to the warning signs you ever-so-slightly touched on in your question. I wish you and him the best of luck now and in the future.

There's this group I'm in but I don't know if I'm in it, every time I see them they are doing something with out me. What should I do?

Question found in Teenage Problems
Ask one of them if they'd mind if you tag along. A circle of friends won't always do everything together but it will look that way. There's usually a couple of them who have known the others from similar neighborhoods, activities in school or just became associated through other mutual friends. My childhood friends have been pretty close all of these years and I remember tagging along with them as they sometimes did with me. After 30 years, we still sometimes ride our motorbikes, go to the target range, etc., but we are hardly ever able to get all 7 of us together for the same activities because of our mixed schedules. It is always the problem. It usually boils down to 2 or 3 of us but it is always fun anyway. The point is, fit in where you know you will be comfortable and at least one of them will see this and ask you to come along when it's practical. Don't take it personal because they may forget to ask you every time. Good luck to you.

What is st pneumonia?

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common bacterium that causes bacterial pneumonia. It usually occurs when the body is weakened in some way, such as illness, malnutrition, old age, or impaired immunity, and the bacteria are able to work their way into the lungs. Bacterial pneumonia can affect all ages, but those at greater risk include persons who abuse alcohol, persons who are debilitated, post-operative patients,
persons with respiratory diseases or viral infections, and persons who have weakened immune systems. The symptoms of bacterial pneumonia include shaking, chills, chattering teeth, severe chest pain, high temperature, heavy perspiring, rapid pulse, rapid breathing, bluish color to lips and nailbeds, confused mental state or delirium, cough that produces rust-colored or greenish mucus. Viral pneumonia is caused by various viruses, and is the cause of half of all cases of pneumonia. Early symptoms of viral pneumonia are the same as those of bacterial pneumonia, which may be followed by increasing breathlessness and a worsening of the cough. Viral pneumonias may make a person susceptible to bacterial pneumonia.

How do ships float?

Discuss this question

Question found in Boats
It's very hard for me to simply explain this. Displacement is the key, along with a strong enough hull that will keep water out under the extreme pressures that the weight of the ship creates. If you will look at like it as a large moving water pipe, (an odd shaped one), with constant pressure, where all of the seams and fittings are the weakest points, then think of the massive size of the ship and the thousands of rivets, welds and seams created to keep water out, this is strangely similar.

The only difference is that a pipe will keep water in and air outside and the ship is the exact opposite. Ships can be built out of almost anything, including ice and concrete. You create more pressure against the hull with additional movement and weight similar to turning the pressure up on the water pipe. Studying about submarines will give you more insight as to why this works and would be a better analogy.
