    Having trouble finding information about something you need to use for a story? Ask here.
    Know everything? Then please help the rest of us out. :]

    For example, I haven't been to confession in 238907869 years, but I need to know what the priest says after you get into the confessional. Anyone remember?

    If not, feel free to post a question of your own. :]
    Um, I'm kind of late, but I went to confession once and as far as I can remember it kind of goes like this:

    ''Forgive me father, for I have sinned.''
    ''How long has it been since your last confession?''
    ''Nine years.'' [my case]
    ''Confess your sins, child.''
    ''I bite my sister.''

    Then he tells you to do twenty Hail Mary's or whatever, and says a prayer really fast and says, ''your sins have been lifted.''

    What age is the average American high school senior usually? Eighteen or seventeen?

    Depends when their birthday is.
    The cut off dates are from mid-August to late July.
    So, some will be 18 when they go into senior year. Some will turn 18 during that year, and some won't even turn 18 until they are in college.

    I hoped that helped a bit.
    If it was confusing, I can explain again in another way.

    Yeah, I thought it would probably be the same as over here, just thought I'd check.
    So would a junior be aged 16-17?

    Alright, so in a story I'm writing there's a character called Deon.
    Now, for that to be pronounced DAY-on, not DEE-on, would it have to have an accent on the 'e' or something? Like an é?

    Is this a French name?
    If so, then there should be an accent aigu on the e. That is the 'é'

    Sweet Sabotage.:
    hehe. um, does anyone remember what bible verse it is that talks about homosexuality being an "abomination" or whatever?
    i'm horrible, i haven't picked up a bible all year. :tehe:
    but yeah, if anyone knows that, let me know
    Leviticus.
    but it's a mistranslation
    abomination meant pagan ritual
    and "lying with another man" meant temple prostitute

    As in what? There are many significant dates. Like when it started? Or when Germany invaded Poland. Also when they occupied nearly 2/3 of France. Attack on Moscow. Or when the German and Japanese officials and personnel were prosecuted for war crimes? There's a lot of significant dates...

    I am doing a story where Gerard/Frank are reporting Mikey to the 'Serious Crime Unit'... but is this a British department only? If so, what is the American equivalent? (as the boys are in America). I did ask for comments but so far nobody has answered this question. Any help appreciated

    Would you recommend a site that has said dates? :shifty

    I think it'd be SWAT or FBI. Probably the FBI. If it's international affairs, I believe CIA.

    Wikipedia has all the important dates of the whole war.
    The sections about Germany itself are separate from Japan dates.

    Now I I have a question. Was the Italian mafia around before the 1920's in Chicago? I know it was going on in Sicily, but not sure about Chicago.

    We don't have the FBI :) We have the Serious Crime Unit who are detectives rather than agents. We also have the CID unit who organise investigation and are utilised by the Serious Crime Unit who take the reports and do victm liason and blah blah...

    I'd like to find some very useful sites about physical abuse for the story I’m working on. One of the main characters, a girl about 20 years old is in an abusive relationship. I want people to under stand why the character is afraid to leave this relationship.

    I’ve found some sites. They were useful, but nothing that I really needed.

    If you are wiling to help, thanks.
