Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What songs make up the standard "on-hold" music I hear when I'm put on hold while calling a BYU extension? I think it's a classical compilation. It seems like a small selection of songs because I sometimes hear the same songs when I'm put on hold. What songs do they play? Is is a CD? If so, what is its title? (I'm sorry if you've already answered this - I searched the archives, but all I could find were posts asking how to get that music off of there.)

- Thanks very much! I've always wondered about this!

A: Dear your welcome,

You should feel quite lucky that we have on-hold music at all! The telephony engineer that I spoke to on campus noted that it took over 3 years to get approval from the First Presidency before the music could be used. Three years. Wow.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What are body bags made of? Are they recycled or disposed of after use? Are they all one size? Do they allow for breathing, just in case?

- Morbid

A: Dear Morbid,

If you visit this body bag wholesaler ( http://www.seaservices.com/t/ ) you'll see that body bags vary greatly. The materials they are made from vary depending on application/durability (but will be most definately contain some sort of plastic). Most bags are disposable and/or crematable (would you really want to reuse a body bag?). Bags are mostly one size, but can be ordered larger or smaller.

As far as your concern for breathing, there is a much more important concern. As per OSHA regulations, the body bags must contain all bodily fulids and pathogens. It is more important to protect the emergency personnel than to allow for breathing, just in case. Besides, if there is ever any chance of a victim still being alive, they will be taken to the hospital, not put in a body bag.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Does BYU own the land outside the Wilk where the busstops are? If so, why is smoking allowed there?

- Bored Engineer

A: Dear Bored Engineer,

You raise a very good question. BYU does own the property where the bus stops are; however, because of its use and locality, they allow it. You see, the bus is considered a public thoroughfare; as such, BYU gives leniency to those who are transient visitors to BYU property. Just part of the whole deal with hosting a UTA bus stop. If they were to start wandering through other parts of campus while smoking, they would be stopped and asked to extinguish their cigarette.

Which always raises a good question: why smoke? It does such bad things for you voice.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

While at the grocery store the other day the cashier addressed me as Mam. If there is one thing I hate being called it's Mam. Mam makes me feel like an old woman, and while I'm 20 and single I don't consider myself old enough to be considered a Mam. I feel as if Miss is a suitable title for myself,no longer a girl, and not quite a Mam.(I feel a Britney Spears song coming on!) So that leaves me to my question, is there a title that you absolutely hate to be called?

- "Miss" curious

A: Dear Miss,

Oooh.

I hate when I'm at work, talking to someone on the phone, and I've just explained all kinds of complicated things to the person I'm talking to and at the end she (it's always older/middle aged women that do it) says, "Ok, thanks hun." Or sweetie. Or dear. Normally those names don't bother me. Sometimes I even like them-- when used appropriately. But when I've just shown my knowledge/professionalism, don't call me hun!

- Lavish
A: Dear Miss,
Don't be too hard on the cashier. Sometimes is hard to distinguish what the proper formal title should be for someone. Younger girls do get married more often these days, especially in Provo, and Ma'am is just an easy way to respectifully refer to someone if werf doesn't know their customer's marital status. So next time just smile and recognize that the person is just trying to be respectful.
-ME
A: Dear Miss,

I actually like "Ma'am," but maybe that's because I'm married. I wish all men would address women so respectfully.

Anyway. I actually really dislike it when there are no pleasantries at all, when someone doesn't even say hello when I interact with them. I always say "hello" if they don't, but it really bothers me when they won't address you, like you aren't even there. Grrr.

Question #25892 posted on 06/21/2006 3:01 a.m.
Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

So I was thinking the other day, what is it about an event/sweet nothing that makes it "romantic"?
For example candle lit dinner = romantic
Talking about the stock market = not

why? But please don't limit yourself to explaining just the 2 above examples.
Thanks

- Anonymoose

A: Dear Anonymoose,

In researching this, I came up with a short list of things that are generally considered romantic.

candlelight dinners
soft music
flowers (esp. roses)
sitting in front of the fire
elegant dinners
wine
foods considered aphrodesiacs
fine china and linen
boating on a lake
sunsets
perfume

One general theme I can see is timelessness. These are all things that could have been done 50, 100 or 200 years ago. In cutting out all of the modern distractions (turning off cell phones, using candles instead of electric lights), you transport yourself out of the modern world and away from its distractions, which is supposed to leave you more free to pay attention to your significant other.

Another theme might be avoiding sensory distractions (while still creating a romantic sensory ambiance). The dim lighting means you can't see well enough to pay attention to anything very far away and the soft music dulls other sounds which might be distracting. The smells of perfume and flowers as well as the smell and taste of the food add to the mood.

That's my analysis, anyway.
