Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Do you have any funny stories of the following fairly particular category? In which someone who is a consummate one-upper or is otherwise very keen on being the best is clearly frustrated on being in a situation in which they are clearly not.

-Mike

A:

Dear Mike,

I want to do this justice, but I am on a crazy time crunch at the present. You should totally re-ask this in one month.

I'll tell you the story of Ice Cream for Breakfast Japanese Model Massive Shark Attack Witness-Man then, okay?

--Ardilla Feroz

P.S. El-Ahrairah pointed out Ice Cream for Breakfast Man would be a great band name. I agree.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

So now that my first year is over, I'm no longer a freshman! Technically, credit wise I am even a junior. So, should I stick with asking questions as Freshwerf? Or should I change to something like Sophwerf, or Junwerf, or maybe even Re-Freshwerf? What do you guys think?

-Freshwerf?

A:

Dear Sophwerf,

-Vienna

A:

Dear freshling,

Sophwerf is my vote as well. Although "sophling" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

-yayfulness

A:

Dear Freshwerf,

Sophwerf for sure. It'll be interesting to see what it becomes after you graduate, assuming it's not "Gradwerf."

-El-ahrairah

A:

Dear Cardboard Ally,

Mishwerf.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

In lieu of Board Question #82003, are these restaurants still in the Cougareat? If not, what have they been replaced with?

-Freschetta
-Taco Bell
-Scoreboard Grill
-Subway

That's all I can remember from my days at the Y. If these are still there, then Teriyaki Stix was the only one to be canned, huh?

-Mr. Left, who would've rather worked at Tomassito's Italian Cafe instead of Teriyaki Stix any day

A:

Dear K-9,

Yes, they're all still there.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Is there a difference in how learning takes place in a left-to-right as opposed to a right-to-left script (eg. Roman vs Arabic)? Is one direction easier than the other to learn, or is it just a matter of which is taught first?

- sunshine

A:

Dear sunshine,

It doesn't look like any of us have been able to find any literature about this, sorry! I would guess that left vs. right isn't any more difficult to learn at first. However, I have heard that once you get used to a particular system, it can affect how you see other things. For instance, my seminary teacher was a part of the Canadian Reserves, and he told me that they were taught that whenever you were keeping a visual lookout, you should look from right to left, since it's opposite to the habit your brain has been trained to look from left to right due to our writing system.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I just found out that a friend of mine lives in the same apartment complex that I'll be moving into for spring term. This friend happens to be very attractive, although for various reasons I'm not interested in him. So I'm wondering if my attractiveness/dateability will be affected for other guys if I'm seen hanging out with my handsome friend and it's clear we're just friends?

-La fille américaine

A:

Dear fille,

I wouldn't overthink it too much. There are all sorts of effects this could have, ranging from your perceived attractiveness being heightened, to the other guys maybe getting the false impression that your guy friend is still trying to make a move and not pursuing you. It really depends on the individual guys you have in your ward. My guess is that any effect would be pretty small.

Question #82319 posted on 04/26/2015 1:38 p.m.
Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What are the interior dimensions of the dresser/drawers in New Heritage Halls? W/H/D please.

Are all the New Heritage hall bedroom closets the same size? What are their dimensions? She is in a Single Room. What is the height from the shelf to the ceiling?

Can you tell me the interior dimensions of the drawers in the desk for New Heritage Halls? Also, what is the height (from the desk top to the shelf bottom) of the Desk Hutch Shelf?

I don't want my daughter to bring more then will fit comfortably in her the space. Less is More, but I need to know what is the available space size. Do you know the height of the walls? I don't know why the housing web site gives the room dimensions for Helman Halls but not Heritage, and I am sure I am not the only Mom who would love to know all the dimensions of the furniture for organizing purposes. For those flying into Utah instead of driving this is more important.

Is there something I should know/be asking about the Laundry facilities?

The info would be much appreciated.

Overly Organized

A:

Dear TARDIS,

Here's what I can tell you.

First, I took some pictures for Board Question #73424, so those may be able to help you get a sense for the size.

I don't have any exact dimensions because I no longer have access, but the thing that I would do, by far, is to wait until you've seen the rooms in person, and then go out and buy any additional storage unit stuff you might need. There's a larger hall closet available for storage, as well as a basement storage, so if stuff that doesn't fit is brought, there will definitely be room for it somewhere.

Also, since she's in a single room, it'll be a tiny bit smaller than the pictures I posted, but only just, since there won't be an extra bed in there.

The laundry facilities are in the basement, and there's about eight washers and eight dryers. I didn't usually have a problem with finding a time to do laundry when I was there.

-Tally M.

Question #82314 posted on 04/25/2015 2:32 p.m.
Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I keep finding little wormy bugs all over my apt. In my bedroom. In my kitchen. They look like tiny brown worms. They don't bite. But every time I think I've seen the last of them (after a few weeks or a month or so), I find another one. I find them most frequently in folded blankets or clothing.

How do I get rid of these? I don't leave food out, and every time I see one of the bugs, I pick it up with a tissue and flush it down the toilet. I have wiped down all the surfaces in my bedroom and kitchen with bleach wipes. I have searched for a nest with no luck. It would be gross, but at least then I would know where they are coming from.

How do I get rid of these? Is there some chemical I can use to bomb the place and kill them all off? I want them to be gone.

-No more

A:

Dear no more,

I regret to inform you of your nascent tunnel worm infestation. You should probably move before they metamorphose into their next (very hungry) stage.

If I am mistaken about the tunnel worms, however—and I often am—I might add you're not the only one who has this problem. They might be some kind of carpet beetle, or maybe weevils that have gotten into some open flour or pasta somewhere. If your efforts to take them out aren't successful, consider asking exterminators in your area if they do free consultations and can offer a quote of how much it would cost to get rid of the creatures permanently. 

Suerte,

--Ardilla Feroz
