  • How old are Luke and Nathan in the Pilot of One Tree Hill?

    Okay I am about 3 episodes in and this confuses me. Dan leaves Luke’s mom and Luke behind to chase after college basketball. Then we find Luke and Nathan on the same Varsity basketball team and same English class. 

    How long between leaving Luke’s mom, did Dan return home work at/own the lucrative dealership, and marry/knock up someone else up to produce Nathan? Does this timeline ever get answered? More importantly are these brothers the same age/grade, if yes what age/grade is it? If not please tell how old they are supposed to be.

  • When a restaurant gets renovated by Gordon Ramsay, they get a new kitchen, new lights, etc. How do you account for those on a tax return?

    The business did not buy them, nor did an owner trade an asset for higher portion of capital... I mean I assume Gordon Ramsay/Production Company doesn't get a portion of the business for renovating the restaurant, this isn't the first season of Shark Tank.

    Does the business just list the new assets with a basis of $0.00? I ask because when a person wins a prize on a game show they have to pay taxes on the prizes they keep... so would these businesses have to pay tax on FMV of the gifts they recieve as non operating-income as well?

    Do they just realize the gain for whatever they end up selling these gifts and/or the business as a whole and have it factor into to any profit on the sale?

    I could probably take 90 minutes bouncing around the IRS website to find out, but I thought maybe someone could point me in the right direction, or provide me with an answer.

    Thank you.

  • What right does a person have to have an abortion?

    I am not talking about supreme court ruling says so. I am not talking about worst case scenarios of rape, incest, etc. induced pregnancies.

    I want to know why a hypothetical woman of any age who is not raped by any definition of the word, who is not drunk, not high, no condoms were broken or even used, she is not on any contraceptive of her own, knows the potential consequences of unprotected sex, but decides to go ahead and do it anyway. When she finds out she is pregnant, for whatever reason, she does not wish to carry the pregnancy to term. This pregnancy that came as a result of choices she made out of her own free will.

    Why she should be able to legally get an abortion? I am interested to hear opinions, and hoping for something little more detailed than just my body my choice. If you honestly belief she should not be able to please feel free to chime in as well, but please at least a little more than just the catch phrase response.

  • Opinions on the lenovo Z series?

    I am looking for a new laptop, I figured if I was going to move out of Windows 7 to Windows 8, I might as well go for a touchscreen. I am looking for that 14 or 15 inch touch screen. i am 6'5" with large hands even if I end up with a Windows 7 non-touch screen it is still going to be 14-15 inches.

    I saw Lenovo has a Z series that fits what I am looking for and my $600-800 budget. I was wondering if anyone had any firsthand experience with the Z400 with the 1600 X 900 screen or the Z500 series, and if so what they have to say about them.

  • Please help with this gambling/math word problem.?

    I have this word problem that I can mostly figure out but I am confused by this one part of the problem.

    The con man says, "I'll bet you even money that the other side of the card is also red." Does that mean the con man, or Ray wins if the other side is also red?

    Here is the context if that helps:

    "I have this little silk bag. In it are three cards. One of them is green on both sides. Another one is red on both sides. And the third is red on one side and green on the other.

    "I'm going to allow you to inspect the bag and put the cards inside. Without looking, I will let you pull one of the cards and place it on this little table in front of me without revealing what's on the bottom of the card."

    You reach into the bag, deftly pull out one card, and put it on the table. You see a red face.

    The con man says, "I'll bet you even money that the other side of the card is also red."

    Should you take the bet?

  • Can I take these as Itemized Deductions?

    For the federal taxes, I was wondering if under the other tax line on Schedule A for Form 1040 (or anywhere else for that matter) If I can deduct these expenses:

    Can take the fee I paid to get my licence renewed as a deductible expense? Also can I take a state gas tax, I have documentation to show that I paid, as a deduction?

    I am going through my expenses and I know I can itemize my mortgage interest, my state income taxes that I pay, and that I can also take my real estate taxes. I was just wondering if I could take those under the other line.

  • can you die from a suicide attempt?

    I read a headline of an article that said that the person had "apparently died from a suicide attempt." It came across my mind, once the person died it was no longer an attempt. The person did not die from a suicide attempt but died because he committed suicide. My thinking being that death no longer made it an attempt. Correct me if I am wrong but I was wondering proper word usage.

  • Arsenal's New American Overlord?

    BBC and Skysports are both reporting that Stan Kronke has bought out Bracewell-Smith and Fizman to bring his stakes up to over 60 percent. When this is officially announced it will bring about a required offer to buy all remaining shares at whatever price he bought this last bunch for. Thoughts on this not to surprising but interestingly timed takeover. What do you see as the next steps and/or any thoughts at all.

  • Anyone else see the headlines about the Arsenal takeover?

    I was interested in the article to find out what was going on and the only quote that we have is that the selling of Lady Bracewell-Smith's shares was not likely to be immanent. I started to wonder how this counted as news then. But then I finally realized when I read the final paragraph, that this happens the same day that we will learn if Stan will sell his stake in his last place American Football team the St. Louis Rams and free up a lot of capital that could be used to buy her shares.

    Otherwise this isn't news, it would be if you got a quote from Lady, or a quote from her husband saying the sale is imminent but you don't, all you have is that she is now have a realitor sell her house (Arsenal shares) instead of trying to do it herself, we already knew since she left the board a year or 2 ago that she was looking to sell her shares since then. This is barely news.

  • FA Cup Europa Spot who gets it?

    We all should know by now that:

    1 Chelsea will qualify for the Champions League next year,

    2 Portsmouth win or lose the cup final haven't applied for the necessary licenses to play in Europe next year.

    So my question is do we treat this spot as if 2 Champions league qualifiers are in the final and give the spot to team in the Premier league that is 1 below the current cut off for Europa qualification? Or does this spot remain Portsmouth but whoever draws them gets a forfeit win, or something else happens to the spot? Does anyone know?
