Should I expect my wife to work or stay home if we don't have kids?

Why should you expect anything? To work or not is more her decision than yours. After 40 years of marriage....I know.... you should never make a decision for your wife. That is her right not yours. Semper Fi, Z

Can only white people like the Lord of the Rings?

Are you really asking this question? Why would you believe the story only appeals to one race or the other. People are interested in what they want and enjoy what they want. Can only black people enjoy 'Hidden Figures?' The definitive answer is no....people like what they like...race aside. Semper Fi, Z

How do I deal with the fact that my life will never be as perfect as peoples lives in books?

Consider the irony of your situation: from my own experience with teen fiction, I remember that many of the characters' lives seemed average, bland, and simple until someone else came along. I wouldn't focus on trying to find your ideal existence, rather look at yourself as one of those characters on the brink of something extraordinary. Try identifying with the characters' lives in ways that are similar to your own, but don't try to perfect your own story when every story line has its obstacles.

What do you think of naming a child a Harry Potter name?

Well, honestly I think naming a child, especially your first after a Harry Potter character is great. But, as great as that sounds, you also want to secure your child's future from bullying, anti-Harry Potter fans, and etc. But those are great names as Hermione also has a origin, and many people these days name their kids after things. I mean it's better than naming your child sexfruit,(yes, someone has seriously named their child this.) Truthfully, yes I think you should name your child after Harry potter character, but when they grow up, please do not relate them to the character his/her is named after. Ex: You named your child Hermione, do not get a hermione halloween costume unless she wants to. And never ever compare them, and tell the child how similar they are.That's how they start to hate their name. That's all I guess!! Oh, don't name him/her the full character's name. That's like an easy target for bullies.

If you publish a book with a publisher do you get a cut from every book they sell or do they buy the book off you?

It would depend on the contract, some contracts buy the rights to a book, which means (again depending on the wording) that they own it, they can make changes to it and your book may turn out very different from what you intended. It also means they can sell it. Authors need expert legal advice. Research is an important part of writing, and researching publishing contracts and all that go with them is even more so. http://www.fonerbooks.com/contract.htm http://www.ian-irvine.com/on-writing/the-truth-about-publishing/

I'm writing and I need other words for 'asked'. Thanks?

Okay, there are many words you can use instead of asked. I'll just make a list. Some of these words are weird. It depends on how you write the question or sentence. questioned requested demanded inquired challenged quizzed examined investigated interrogated queried wondered (Ex: "Wait, we forgot about her. Where is Julie?" He wondered out loud.)

What do you think of the name Melanie?

The name Melanie was derived from a Greek word meaning "black, dark." It was a common name in France during the Middle Ages, and there was a saint by the name in the 5th century that gave away all of her money to charity. One of the most famous pop culture characters of the name was Melanie Wilkes from the novel and movie "Gone With the Wind." In my experience, women named Melanie tend to be a bit arrogant and abrasive but they are also talented and very driven so they are often highly successful.

Why is Shakespeare so popular?

Shakespeare's enduring popularity can be attributed to the breadth of genres he covered, the integration of his work into academia and the complexity and universality of his stories. Other popular writers cover comedies, histories or fairy tales, but Shakespeare's complete bibliography includes every type of character and story imaginable, adapted to modern audiences throughout history.

Tip on add calculated values

syntax is perfect. I just tried on my Linux installation, with a column named "Normalized ULK1 IC50s" and with your exact syntax, which worked well. Which platform do you use (Mac, Linux, Win32 or Win64 and which JRE)? I will then retry under similar conditions. For more information, see the Fleet Management App Video

Do you agree that George Orwell should never have written 1984?

A book is what you make of it. Some have made the same argument about the Bible. I would argue that what is portrayed in 1984 happens now, only it is not Big Brother, or even so much the government, it is ads on T.V. telling us what to buy, eat, drink, wear, smell and how that will make us feel. The screen in 1984 and now are the same it is who is watching it and how they are living that will make a difference.

Is this a good opening sentence?

Aaliyah's eyes focused intently on the hands of her leather banded watch, willing them to move. (Why does she want them to move?). -equally pale pink- thus far it is the first reference to pale pink so it is not equal to anything pink or pale. Introduce her eye color in a more likely manner, and maybe have something else distract her, other than her scarf, which may distract her, but not the reader

What's easier to get a DNA sample of?

Out of the two blood is the easiest, fingerprints do not typically yield DNA unless skin is left behind, and live cells are again fastest and easiest. Saliva is just as good as blood and can be found many places people do not even think about such as, cigarette butts, drinking glasses, chewing gum, postage stamps, sealed envelopes etc.
