Travish: is there a book, that tells you people’s REAL names? example: meat loafs real name is probably james, or something like that. alot of famous people have pretend names, and i’d like a book that says what the REAL names are?

[EACL 16:57:58]: Hello. Welcome!
[TRAVISH 16:58:19]: hi
[EACL 16:58:49]: The World Almanac has a section where entertainers original names and stage names are listed. I can see if there is something else too.
[TRAVISH 17:02:14]: i’ll look! I have to go now or I will be LATE. my favorite wrestler is john cena and i wanted to see what his real name was and triple H (not my favorite). If you see a book please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. thank you.
TRAVISH: i think this guy Dennis Hope is a LUNARtic
CRL: haha, I think I read a science fiction novel about those folks. Anything else I can help you with?
TRAVISH: it says:
TRAVISH: States Parties shall not place in orbit around or other trajectory to or around the moon
objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction or place or
use such weapons on or in the moon.
TRAVISH: but it means all celestial bodies, right?
CRL: I believe so. In 1979 we didn’t have quite as much access to other celestial bodies. I’m no lawyer, however.
TRAVISH: i was just thinking of superman iv: the quest for peace when Superman threw all those nuclear bombs into the sun to destroy them. he was breaking the moon agreement.
CRL: I’m afraid I didn’t see that movie. Is there anything else I can assist you with today?
TRAVISH: it was not very good. i would still recommend it, though. mostly i would recommend OVER THE TOP. THAT is my FAVORITE movie. i better go. i am going to be late for weightlifting.
CRL: Thank you for using our service. Have a great workout.
OVER THE TOP is a WAY better movie than superman iv (four) : the quest for peace
Travish: What is the difference between SPIDERwebs and COBwebs?
[Libarian With Some Knowledge Of Arachnids 11:21:02]: Librarian ‘(Censored)’ has joined the session.
[LWSKOA 11:21:06]: Hello. Welcome to the (Censored) Chat Service!
I am reviewing your question now.
(At the end of our chat session, if the e-mail address you provided is correct, you will receive a complete transcript in your in-box.)
[LWSKOA 11:21:43]: Spiders make both cobwebs and spider webs. The main difference between cobwebs and spider webs is that spiders do not live in cobwebs. Cobwebs are abandoned and left behind to collect dusts and other particles. This gives them their thick, gray appearance such as those seen in haunted houses, which have also been abandoned.
Another different between the two webs is that spider webs are more elegant to the haphazardly designed cobwebs. The spiders that design the more elaborate webs are from the Araneidae family. This family of spiders generally builds their webs outdoors and includes the common garden spiders and orb spinners. They spin new webs daily and consume the old; therefore, their webs are not left to collect debris.
Travish: this is travish. if a food has a seed in it does that make it a fruit
[Libarian That Knows A Lot About Agriculture 08:22:15]: Librarian ‘(Censored)’ has joined the session.
[LTKALAA 08:22:23]: Hi! I’m (Censored) in (Censored). I am helping out your librarians by answering questions for them right now. I’m reading what you wrote so I can help you…
[LTKALAA 08:22:28]: Hold on, please.
[LTKALAA 08:24:28]: Reading the definition of “fruit” in my Webster’s Dictionary makes me think that yes: if it has a seed, it’s a fruit.
[TRAVISH 08:27:20]: ok, i had a debate with mr matthews about this because we couldnt figure out if a pumpkin is a fruit, and HE said it is if it has seeds, and I said a tomato is a fruit then? and he said YES. now, i am sure a tomato is not a fruit, not a squash, either. is there a way to tell if something is a fruit.
[LTKALAA 08:28:47]: Tomatoes are considered fruits. Best I can tell you – look up “fruit” in a dictionary. But, of course, we think of tomatoes as vegetables, so it’s a language thing, isn’t it?
[TRAVISH 08:30:38]: i don’t know. mr matthews speaks the same language as me. or do you mean they call tomatoes fruits in america but not in places they speak spanish?
[LTKALAA 08:31:30]: No, it’s botany, really. A fruit is the reproductive body of a seed plant.
[LTKALAA 08:32:29]: So a lot of the vegetables we eat are the fruits of plants.
[TRAVISH 08:33:25]: like, corn is the fruit of the corn plant?
[LTKALAA 08:33:57]: An individual kernel of corn is a seed.
[TRAVISH 08:35:08]: hmmm. i’ll have to tell mr matthews that a corn is a fruit! he will be surprised at all this new knowledge that i know
[LTKALAA 08:35:34]: I didn’t say corn is a fruit.
[TRAVISH 08:35:53]: but it has seeds
[TRAVISH 08:36:07]: and a cabbage would be the fruit of a cabbage plant?
[LTKALAA 08:36:29]: Right. Now I’m wondering if the ear of corn is a fruit, or do botanists have a different name for the cereals?
[TRAVISH 08:38:40]: i just call them cereal. unless you mean oatmeal. but some people call that porridge, even though i’m sure thouse two are totally different things. so, maybe its like: some people call oatmeal porridge and some people call fruits vegetables, and it really doesn’t matter what they are called, they are all fruits
[LTKALAA 08:39:45]: Our words aren’t always precise.
[TRAVISH 08:41:00]: right. it must be different when a scientist or even a doctor needs to buy groceries, but for me, i will just call foods what i THINK they are
[LTKALAA 08:41:58]: In the news this week, some arganization concerned with school lunches says the potato is not a vegetable. The potato growers association is very upset.
TRAVISH 08:42:00]: a lot of cereal has corn in the ingredients which makes sense, because who would want to eat a vegetable cereal? i know you only eat vegetables at lunch or after
[TRAVISH 08:44:04]: well i dont think it is a vegetable, but i dont think it is a fruit either. it is more like bread, which isn’t either one. maybe rasion bread, but only because it has a fruit in it. i think a potato is a grain maybe? but the growers are probably upset because they want to sell more potatoes, not because they care about science
[LTKALAA 08:45:03]: Yes, they want to sell potatoes. Back during the Reagan administration, some official declared that ketchup was a vegetable.
[TRAVISH 08:46:04]: haha he could probably make people beleive that because he was a tv actor. he probably thought mayonaise was a fruit
[TRAVISH 08:46:48]: i’ll tell my teacher about ronald reagan. he thinks thats the best president ever, and i keep arguing with him about that
[LTKALAA 08:47:14]: It was part of the debate about school lnches, again. “Our kids must have vegetables,” you say? Okay, then – ketchup counts as a vegetable.
[LTKALAA 08:47:24]: lunches
[TRAVISH 08:49:43]: that sounds gross. i usually bring my own food to school. i like ketchup, but i wouldnt want to have to eat it as my vegetable. i understand reagan made children hungry because he cut the food programs for poor parents. i dont understand why my teacher likes him at all
[TRAVISH 08:50:24]: maybe it was different back then because of the cold war and the space race, but i still think kids should get to eat, and they should eat better foods than ketchup
[LTKALAA 08:50:45]: Yeah, better than ketchup is a good idea!
[TRAVISH 08:53:05]: well, it doesn’t even make sense because ketchup comes from tomatoes and tomatoes are a fruit because they have seeds. it doesn’t make sense because its not even a real food. its just a topping, like sprinkles. haha. i wonder if fruit flavored sprikles could be a fruit.
[LTKALAA 08:53:50]: So much to consider. Listen, I think I’d better go help some other patrons now, okay?
[TRAVISH 08:53:53]: it sounds like a bad time for kids to live.
[TRAVISH 08:54:22]: ok, i’ll think about the fruits and talk to my teacher. you were a good help, thank you
[LTKALAA 08:54:34]: You’re welcome. It was fun!
[TRAVISH 08:54:36]: oh gosh im going to be LATE!

[TRAVISH 08:54:42]: bye
I was eating cabbage in class, and Mr. Matthews took it away. I said “Ronald Reagan already took away vegetables from kids in school, and now you are taking away our fruit!!!” He said that cabbage is not fruit AND he sent me to the vice principal’s office!

[Northeastern Libarian In A Libary 17:44:16]: Librarian ‘(Censored)’ has joined the session.
[NLIAL 17:47:18]: I will check
[TRAVISH 17:48:42]: i’m not sure if that is his real name. sort of like meat loaf probably isn’t a real name either
[NLIAL 17:49:36]: Axl Rose I know will check
[TRAVISH 17:50:48]: i bet slash isn’t that guys real name, either
[NLIAL 17:51:06]: Here is a link to paste in separate browser of about 10 books on Axl and Guns and roses – then you can use the titles to purchase one you like from Amazon:(link)
[TRAVISH 17:54:35]: why is W. Axl Rose : the unauthorized biography an UNauthorized biography?
[TRAVISH 17:56:41]: does that mean its not accurate
[NLIAL 17:57:03]: NO
[NLIAL 17:57:49]: actually an “unauthorized” biography is -more accurate – than an authorized biography – which usually only says “nice” things about the subject of the biography
[NLIAL 17:58:08]: If unauthorized it is generally more accurate
[NLIAL 17:59:21]: So I would reco the unauthorized bio
[TRAVISH 17:59:36]: is it primary or secondary source if axl rose did not write it?
[NLIAL 18:00:53]: It is a secondary resource – but note – any time a biography quotes a person making a statement, a newspaper article (at the time), or someone’s statement – it is using primary sources
[NLIAL 18:01:32]: So a biography is a secondary source that contains much of its material from interviews, news articles and other primary sources
[NLIAL 18:01:58]: I am sorry but I have to go now – that should give you a fair range of material on Axl
[TRAVISH 18:02:28]: i think my dad will like this ten. he makes me do research without using wikipedia because it is not primary or secondary source. plus he is in generation X
[NLIAL 18:02:53]: Okay good luck!
[TRAVISH 18:03:08]: thank you for your help, im going to be late for weightlifting!
[NLIAL 18:03:11]: welcome
I think my dad will LIKE this UNauthorized Axl Rose biography. He said science PROVED that Axle Rose is the best singer ever. I’m not so sure, but it is Father’s Day.
