Answer by Ruby Osiris
Over the Line might be going on in August, on Fiesta Island – it’s really cool
Old Town has old missions/history of SD stuff
Ocean Beach is my favorite beach here
LA sucks, I went there for a day & hated it
Sea World is cool
Wild Animal Park is different than the zoo, but affilliated with it – the animals run free there
There’s wine tasting at various vineyards (especially in Temecula)
Gaslamp district for nightlife

What is a country called when this happens?

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Question by foofy2u2: What is a country called when this happens?
If the government takes over major companies ( Bank of America, GM etc) what kind of a country is it. What will the next step be to keep on keeping the people safe and secure? I am getting some kind of weird feeling like I have seen this before in the 1930-1945 era. Not here in America but in another country that I just can’t bring to mind. Can someone help me with this?
No other country took over the businesses I mentioned but similar happenings.

You may want to check your facts.

The US hasn’t taken over any major company.

The US owns less than 30% of the stock of GM. That’s temporary.

The US doesn’t own any part of Bank of America.

heavens! we saved jobs! EVIL

2 people kicking ball to each other on a field, would this help for football skills?

Question by : 2 people kicking ball to each other on a field, would this help for football skills?
Trying to improve.

Answer by Hannah
It could help with your passing yes and you could try doing moving passes where one person runs to the side and then you pass and move, receive the ball and pass again etc. Also you could try scoring, dribbling, practising interception where someone tries to take the ball off you and other skills like that 🙂

How much is this Vintage Lionel Train set worth?

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Question by Bromandudeguy: How much is this Vintage Lionel Train set worth?
I came across a post war, Lionel train set.
It’s condition is about a 5 to 6 out of 10, but it runs and works fine.
All the track and cars are here, as well as some extra scenery stuff.

I believe it is a #2028 set?

I picked it up for 100 dollars and figured if anything it’s pretty neat.

What do you think or know this set in it’s current condition is worth? And should I invest in fixing it up at all?
It has a regular black locomotive and then a bunch of other cars you would normally, see, the set it pretty big actually. And I guess the 2028 is just one car out of the lot, but there is more!

Is this Lionel train worth anything?

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

Question by thisisonlyatest: Is this Lionel train worth anything?
Ok, so I have an Lionel train in HO scale that was my father’s (so circa 1950’s) it’s a frieght train, not the kind that makes smoke. If it had it’s rubber bands changed, it would still run and the light still works.

it has the frieght train, one passenger car and 2 cargo cars. Also it’s orginal tracks and control. (I’m not looking to sell it, but a friend of mine said it’s not worth anything because it’s HO, even if it is lionel.)

What do you think?

Answer by Steven D
Your friend is mistaken. Contact a local model railroad club and go from there. If you’re not sure, don’t invest a lot of money. I suggest buying a couple model railroading magazines for about $ 10 – $ 14, and go from there. A basic set goes for about $ 100.My wife and I work on the layout together, she does the buildings and I do the ground work.

Question by brendanbilbo1212112: How much is this model train worth?
I found a model train earlier today and it looks like it could be worth something… But I’m not sure. I have the case with it and on the cover of the case it says: BIG RUGGED Lionel Trains Classic Series Series 1. On the inside it says Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Super Chief F3. If anyone know if this is worth anything please let me know! Thanks
