Are small cars like Smart safe enough in city traffic?

I’m thinking of buting a second car, for use in the city traffic in Stockholm, Sweden. A Smart would be ideal, not at least when it comes to parking. But I’m a bit worried about the safety. If I’m concerned with safety, should I buy a Volvo, or something like that, instead?

If your God told you to, would you kill a human baby?

1 Samuel 15:
This is what the LORD Almighty says: "I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when the waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys."

If love’s only about giving and expecting nothing in return where does love for self fit in?

Ok, I’ve been told on various Q’s that you only truly love someone when you are willing to give everything and expect nothing in return. I’m all for believing that the greater part of loving is giving freely and with an open heart without strings attached. BUT.. is it realistic to think that humans are capable of this without any regard for their own personal feelings or needs? Sorry but in some ways it seems like poetic mumble to me. Ive also seen comments that you can’t love someone until you love yourself. I agree to some degree. But how can not caring if love is returned really be part of a healthy love or of loving yourself? Isn’t that a bit of a contradiction? I see people being given these answers and wonder is it really helping them or making them feel more like they just can’t get it right?

How Come There Is Such A Backlash Against Reverend Wright But Not The Other Reverends?

I think I got this question pulled for violating the CoC but I do not know why? I made a comment very similar to it and that did not get pulled. Why does Reverend Wright experience the backlash from his comments but the old white evangelists get a free pass? They have made some terrible bigoted remarks towards gays, lesbians, Blacks, Asians, Muslims, Jews, Wiccans, Pagans, etc. Is it because they are not white men that they are attacking? Examples of these bigoted reverends are Jim Falwell, Rod Parsley, and John Hagee.
"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say ‘you helped this happen.’" Jerry Falwell Blaming These People For 9/11.

What is Muslim’s view toward Jesus?

Muslim view of Jesus.

Islam claims that Muhammad and Jesus were both Muslims and prophets of Allah. Whoa, Nelly! They say that Allah has no son and they are right. Allah is not the omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent God of the Bible–so they are right, Jesus is not the son of Allah. He is the Son of God. Muslims say that the Bible is corrupt, we can’t trust it–yet the Quran claims to based on the Bible. Islam says:

Jesus is not the Son of God.
Jesus did not die for our sins.
Jesus was not crucified.
Jesus was not divine as well as human.
Jesus is not the Saviour.

These are not issues of the Bible being corrupt as the Muslims say it is. These are issues of the Quran out-and-out contradicting the Bible. These are issues of Muslims blaspheming. See Suras 4:157; 5:19, 75; 9:30.

Who would better know the needs of the military? congress, civilian bystanders or military leaders?

Are some members of congress trying to protect the United States or their cash flow? Some people (both Democrats and Republicans) and a person that can see Russia have been crying doom and we’re going to die because Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is going to reduce missile Defense Agency program by $1.4 billion and some defense contractors will lose some money.
What they are not telling is: Sec. Gates stated his "plan is in the area of missile defense, we will restructure the program to focus on the rogue state and theater missile threat. We will not increase the number of current ground-based interceptors in Alaska, as had been planned, but we will continue to robustly fund continued research and development to improve the capability we already have to defend against long-range rogue missile threats, a threat North Korea’s missile launch this past weekend reminds us is real."

When was the first recorded case of AIDS?

Is it important to find a cure, seeing as many – not all – practice unsafe sex knowing the risks and ways of reducing the likelihood of catching it, such as wearing a condom or not having sex with strangers every night?

The same goes for lung cancer directly attributable to smoking, to name but one other.

Did you know Bill # HR 1913 in Congress will limit freedom of speech?

And, check this out…. The story itself is being moderated and hushed….

Just another liberty stolen by your dear leader. Think this can’t happen? Obama all ready ok’d for the government to know EVERYTHING about your medical history…. Lost liberty. They just keep piling up. Is this the change you voted for? What are we at? 60/40 Capitalism/Socialism now? 40 percent in Taxes? Keep this up and by the time Obama gets voted out that number will be flipped to 60% socialism. And yet everyone tells me this isn’t socialism and its not the progressive path towards it. .

I ask this is leukemia or hepatitis?

Yesterday, I suddenly felt right abdominal discomfort in the vicinity of the liver, some pain! This morning to get up a little bit sick, sick. I am a little afraid, because I start every day from August to stay in front of the computer for more than an hour, and sometimes also to be 80 minutes in the afternoon, the evening also looking for more than an hour of television, continues to this day, but last year I will find themselves left Slightly prominent eyes, ophthalmologist did not check out the cause. I would like to ask whether this is related to radiation and a computer? I had leukemia it?

Really scared! HELP!

My dad said to me (I am not sure if he was joking?), would you like your ear pierced. I have been longing to ask him but he was called by my sister and therefore I could not answer. I do not feel like raising the topic again.

Do you think he was joking? Do you think I should ask him? (As well, I am not allowed in school so I cant have a piercing but i really want one!!!!) Help

My heating is not working but the hot water is.

We have a Potterton profile CHBV 533 boiler, servised regularly but when we put the heating on this year the motorised valve got stuck, which a friend suggested to bash, which we did and it worked, but now although the valve seems ok (moving from left to right) the heating won’t come on, even though I have put the themostate right up. Hot water is fine. Can you help.

Why do you give birth to a child and raise him/her? Your personal answer……..please.

This question came to my mind when I saw a movie about a mother…..One day a phone call comes to her home from the police that she will have to identify the body of her elder son. The son was killed by the cops because he was in some revolutionary communist movements……..

…story goes on…everybody in the family is trying to erase every link with him so that the family does not lose it’s respect and status……

But the mother can not compromise with those….she wants to know why is son is being called a criminal by the police and some others….Why she failed to understand what was there in her son’s mind………She goes to his friend’s places…..collects information about him….She gradually discovers her dead son…She discovers that he was never a criminal rather he used to believe in some dream….his revolutionary organisation had faults but not his son…….She slowly becomes like her son but in a different way….She becomes a Human Right Activist…..and one day even manages to capture a political killer on the spot when he was running away after killing a man………

…well I was hardly able to give any flavour of that movie…but that’s it anyway…..

What is a good gift idea for my wife after she just delivered our second child?

My wife just delivered our second daughter. She is an amazing wife and mother and I would like to buy her a gift that would just say thank you in a very special way.
Flowers or generic jewelry do not cut it this time. The present has to be meaningful, maybe some sort of special customizable pendant or something like that.
Does anyone have any ideas of anything fit for this kind of situation?
Thank you!
