What was the song David played on the piano in the second Kings episode? by brettfavre4life Q: Okay, so I need to know what song David played in the second episode of Kings that aired yesterday. I think the song is like 35 minutes in. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

What do you think of kings and royal families? by Q: Do you accept royal families or reject the idea? I can't understand why America accepts them seeing how it was all about getting free from one. Should the US even recognize royal titles? Maybe America is going back to some sort of kingdom. There does seem to be a weakening of freedom and democracy that empowers average people. Of course, there is a massive gap in wealth. What do you think of royal families and kings?

Should Jonathan Bernier get the start for the Kings tomorrow? by The ONE is Gonzo the Mexican Q: As you may or may not know Jonathan Quick is not with the team because his wife is having a baby, so the Kings called up Jonathan Bernier(pretty sure you have heard of him) from the AHL. So should he get the start for the Kings tomorrow?

A: Oh god they had better. Anything beats playing Erik Errorsberg, I mean Ersberg, what a piece he is. Seriously, I'm fairly certain my 10 year old niece is a better goalie then Ersberg.

What player will the Sacramento Kings get with the 5th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft? by Chris M Q: What player will the Sacramento Kings get with the 5th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft? Or who do you think they should get in case that player is still available?

A: DeMarcus Cousins Derrick Favors will most likely be picked by the Nets at number 3 But DeMarcus Cousins could fit very well in a front court with Jason Thompson they been needing much help at the center postion Spencer Hawes isnt cutting it out at center,Jason Thompson is not a center, and Landry is undersized PG-Beno Udrih SG-Tyreke Evans SF-Omri Casspi PF-Jason Thompson C-DeMarcus Cousins

What evidence is their supporting the claim that characters in the Bible are based on Egyptian kings? by Q: There are scholars such as Ralph Ellis, Gary Greenberg and Ahmed Osman who have attempted to link patriarchs with personages of dynastic Egyptian history. Ellis has claimed that the Hebrew kings David and Solomon were based on the lives of Egyptian kings Siamun and Psusennes I's. They even claim that Abraham is Amenemhet I, and that Jakubher the Pharaoh was actually the biblical Jacob. Could any of this be true? Could the Bible just be one interpretation among others on who these biblical characters were?

A: Two Types Absolute Monarchy ex Saudi Arabia Constitutional Monarchy ex Japan

Why does the king of spades face a direction different from the other kings? by Zael Q: I just noticed this while playing a game of Free-cell. The King of spades faces right, whereas the other kings face left. I also noticed that the red Jacks/Knaves face right when the black Jacks/Knaves face left. The queens are similar, with the hearts and the spades looking left and the diamond and clubs turned to the right. What are the reasons for this?

A: The King of Spades is the highest rank card in the deck. Yes the suits themselves are ranked. Maybe that is why he faces differently than the rest

How much would a hockey stick signed by the 1977 river kings team sell for? by Kris Crotwell Q: I have a hockey stick signed by every team member of the river kings during 1977. It is taking space and i am being forced by my wife to sell it. I know it is worth something, so does anyone know how much they sell for? I am so sorry but it is the Memphis, TN Riverkings.

A: If it were the Mississippi Riverkings then you might be able to find out if someone went on to the NHL or AHL, etc. and you could sell it for a few hundred bucks. But, I'm sorry to say it, the Memphis riverkings team isn't as known so you could only likely sell it for 50-75 bucks top price.

How do i reach Kings Circle from Borivali? by sachinvaishnav Q: I am planning to go to Kings Circle from Borivali. Which is the nearest and most convinient train station? Can I go to Dadar and then take some auto/cab to reach there? Please suggest.

A: Hay Sachin... King Circle is a station on the Central Western Harbour Train Line... Yes, U can definately take a cab, from Dadar... But personally i would get down at Bandra & here I will tak the CST bound, Harbour Line Train. Next Station is Mahim & then King Circle. This route is more convenient as there are CST trains from Bandra Every 15 Min (in the afternoon @ times there r 30 min gaps between Trains). Also fare from Borivli to Dadar/King Circle is same, but the cab would take some 17/20 buks... (it would b better if you take a cab from Matunga, as Matunga is more closer to KC than DDR...) if u dont like train journy much.

What kings and queens of england are related to prince charles? by Wolf fan Q: I know that I am related to all the kings and queens that he is so what kings and queens am I related to

A: The Prince of Wales descends from William the Conqueror as well as Harold Godwin and a long line of Anglo-Saxon kings--that is if he actually.descends from all the Plantagenet kings who survived to sire children through Henry Tudor's marriage to Elizabeth of York, the daughter of Edward IV, whose parentage is disputed. The Hanoverians descend from James VI of Scotland, who ascended the English throne as James I of England because James' great, great grandmother, Margaret Tudor, was the consort of James IV of Scotland.The Stuart dynasty traces its descent to Robert the Bruce. whose family originally came to the British Isles at the time of William, the Conqueror. All of the above descend from the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne. Along the way, both Scottish and English royal families intermarried with each other as well as with royal families in France, Spain, the Netherlands, the Germanies, and Scandinavia/Greece.

What happens when both kings are under check in chess? by QuizMaster Q: What happens when both kings are next to each other and under check? There are still other pieces on the board.

A: One rule in chess is that a King cannot move into check. Thus, the king that moved next to the other one made an illegal move.

What are the LA Kings doing to make them so successful in the playoffs? by Q: What strategy are the LA Kings using to make them so far successful in the playoffs to many analyst's surprise?

A: Don't kid yourself Vera. Anyone who watches hockey much and has half a brain is not all that surprised by the Kings. They have a truly great defense, a solid goaltender, and a well balanced attack. They are definitely one of the deepest teams in the league all around. They play a disciplined defensive system similar to a few other teams, such as the Capitals and the Rangers. They try to collapse at least 3 to 4 guys around their net when they are in their zone without the puck. This really limits the quality offensive chances by the other team, as most shots can't even get through to the goal. I've been watching and following hockey for over 30 years, and all this Jon Quick talk is nonsense. He is a good goalie who is very good down low, but he really isn't that great. The people who say he is great just haven't actually seen him play that much, and they just listen to the T.V. analysts. Remember, these analysts are not really there to tell you the reality of things. They are there to create a story and sell the game. They love talking about big upsets and big stars, even when it really is not all that true. They spin stories and create hype, just like most media people are trained to do. That is their job. If you watch T.V. expecting to find the truth, I feel for your naive mind.

Who were the kings of England during the colonial settlement of America? by Jessica B Q: Who was also the Kings during the American settlement, also who was the king who had the throne when parliament began. I know the some of the names, but not the years and their numbers (example, King George the II).

A: House of Stuart (or Stewart) James I (1603-1625) Charles I (1625-1649) ~Commonwealth Interregnum 1649-1660~ Oliver Cromwell as Lord Protector (1653-1658) Richard Cromwell as Lord Protector (1658-1660) House of Stuart Charles II (1660-1685) James II (1685-1688) William III & Mary II (1688-1702) Mary d.1694 Anne (1702-1714) House of Hanover George I (1714-1727) George II (1727-1760) George III (1760-1820)

Besides Cedar Point and Kings Island, is there any other place in ohio to go on vacation? by Rach Q: I'm planning to go on a road trip to Ohio in April. Besides Cedar Point and Kings Island, is there any other place that you can recommend? All others suggestions out of Ohio in the country are appreciated as well. THANX!

A: Avoid Columbus unless you are in need of a lot of down time. Canton has the football hall of fame; Cleveland has the rock and roll hall of fame. Dayton has an airbase with museum. Findlay has buzzards.

What do you guys think of the kings 35 point comeback vs the bulls? by Blazers F Q: I'm not a kings fan, but that was amazing. A 58-19 run the rest of the way. Tyrek evens was amazing. The kings just made history.

A: That was insane. Its was crazy. I guess the kings are a little better than we all thought. But the bulls were careless and did let them come back. Some people might say that the bulls are not yet as mature and can't handle these situations.

What is the best book on a brief history of all kings and queens, nonfiction? by Q: I am looking for a good nonfiction book to learn about kings and queens of the past. A brief history and maybe with time line for the different countries. Thanx!

How busy is Carowinds compared to Kings Dominion During Spring Break? by presidenthc2000 Q: I've been planning on going to Kings Dominion during a sunday in May for my summer vacation. I dont have any plans for spring break, so I'm thinking about going to Carowinds during the week. Does anyone know which day out of the week of spring break that Carowinds is the least busy? And will it be busier when i go to kings dominion in May, or Carowinds?

A: Shoot - they are both getting amazing new rollercoasters, so they will both be packed. If you must go to Carowinds during spring break, then go on a day where the weather forecast would elude people (cooler, cloudy, maybe slight chance of rain). Definitely go during a weekday (Mon-Thurs will be your best bet). It probably will be just as busy for both parks...during Carowind's "Spring Break" week, it is shortly after Carowinds opens for the season so all of the kiddies will want to be one of the first people to check out the new rollercoaster during their Spring Break, and Kings Dominion's new coaster will attract a lot of enthusiasts because of it's size and uniqueness (the new coaster at Carowinds is similar to others of it's type so I don't think it'll attract too many enthusiasts as compared to Kings Dominion's new coaster). Anyway, that's my prediction. If I were you, I'd try to go to both parks during a weekday in May, when kids are at school and adults are at their job. Good luck - have fun!!!

What is the probability of getting three queens and two kings? by Q: If you are dealt 5 cards from a shuffled deck of 52 cards, what is the probability of getting three queens and two kings?

Why do Americans think that India is still ruled by kings and princeses, and elephants roam on the streets? by jay bee Q: Why do Americans think that India is still ruled by kings and princeses, and elephants roam on the streets?

A: For the record, I'm an American and I do not think that. I am well aware that India is a Parliamentary Republic led by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. And while I don't know much about the nation's elephant population, I would imagine that elephants in the streets would make it very difficult for cars to get by. I would think that the government would keep them out of the streets if that were at all possible! But there are a lot of Americans who don't know a damn thing about geography. This isn't specific to India; many Americans couldn't name a single foreign head of state. And quite a few of them probably couldn't name their own state's governor or senators. I don't think this is unique to the United States, though. There are ignorant people all over the world. It's just something we have to deal with.

How much per person does it cost to go to Kings Dominion? by Liza A Q: Me and a few of my friends are planning to go to kings dominion for a day during spring break. We looked on their website, but that didn't have any prices.

How safe is for 2 teenager girls staying at Kings College Residence in London during the summer? by kma Q: My 2 nieces are planning to stay in Great Dover Street Apartments/ Kings College in August. How safe is there? How about the neighborhood there? And the night neighborhood? Do you recommend it ? Tks

A: They should be fine. the area where Great Dover Street is located is Borough and there are many restaurants and bars etc around so lots of people. Its just South (but less than a mile) of very central London so you get the advantages that its a bit less busy and a bit less overly touristy. There are several art galleries, museums, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and other attractions such as the London Eye within walking distance or a 5-10 minuite bus or underground ride. I have worked in teh area and now live just South of it and I would recommend it!

What is the difference of the Halloween Haunt at Kings Dominion on Friday and Saturday? by Q: I am planning on going to the halloween haunt at Kings Dominion soon. I was just wondering if there is any difference between the haunt on friday and the haunt on saturday. I am planning to go on a saturday and I want to make sure that all of the really scary things are on saturdays too. So... is there any difference?

On Fridays the hours are from 7pm to Midnight (12:00am) On Saturdays the hours are from 10:30am to Midnight. On Sundays the hours are from 10:30am to 10pm The price differs as well.

How did the first kings and emperors become kings and emperors? by John Doe Q: How did they do it? Did they wake up one morning and said that they were going to rule the lands? Were they wealthier than anyone else and they paid for their position? How the bloody hell did they do it? I'm not talking about the hereditary thing, I'm talking about the very first kings of Europe.

A: Kings originally were leaders of their people. Such people usually rise through strength of personality, courage or intelligence, ruthlessness and brutality, and more likely a combination of these. The institution as such is much older than wealth per se. Take Genghis Khan. His father was dead, his family was of little renown and influence, and yet he became the greatest conqueror this world has ever seen. Personality, courage and intelligence, ruthlessness and brutality. How about Napoleon? An ordinary joe from a backward island province ends up as the absolute ruler of most of Europe. Personality, courage etc. Now, the very first kings of Europe... actually, I don't know very much about that. But practically all continental royalty (Great Britain has its own story, as usual) ultimately leads back their nobility to Charlemagne. He didn't exactly come from nothing (He was a prince) but he still upgraded an awful lot through personality, courage etc. He conquered most of Europe and delegated local rulership to vassals. Those vassals, in the centuries that followed, intermarried, had wars, bought land off of each other and inherited, and the end result is modern royalty and aristocracy. They're all descended from this or that count, baron or duke originally in service to Charlemagne. Charlemagne was also the first emperor, after the Roman Empire; he simply forced the pope to pass that authority on to him. He wasn't all wrong, since, although he was a conniving, treacherous, greedy snake, he did manage to bring order and rule of law in an enormous empire.

How did the conflict between the Pope and kings during the Middle Ages end? by frida81 Q: There was a conflict between the Church's power and the kings' npower during the Middle Ages. One of the two was constantly trying to prove that his power was stronger than the others, how did the conflict end?

A: You need only review the history of Henry VIII and the Church of England. This is the conflict you speak of, and it started with the Pope's refusal to grant the King a divorce so he could marry his new love interest, and continue his quest to have a son. The Pope would not budge and it ended with England changing its national religion and making the King the head of the Church of England (Anglican). Henry VIII seized the properties of the Church and executed any Catholic clergy that defied him. There were other minor power struggles, but what remade the authority of the Church and royalty was the Plague. The people turned on the Church when it was unable to protect them from the Black Plague, which devastated Europe's population.

Why did the Prussian kings become more independent and powerful than other German kings? by Q: A:Large segments of the kingdom existed outside the boundaries of the Holy Roman Empire. B:The Prussian nobles were among the most educated royals in Europe. C:Its central location in the heart of the Holy Roman Empire meant that it was much more politically connected than other German kingdoms. D:The Prussian kings were among the first to ally themselves with the emerging Russian Empire.

A: A is the best fit. It allowed the Elector of Brandenburg to retitle himself as King in(note not of!) Prussia. That being said, it was sometimes a curse rather than a blessing; the Prussian holdings were constantly under threat by Poland and Sweden.

When will Kings Island open up for the 2010 season. And how much will the tickets cost? by Q: I want to go the Kings Island with a group of friends and i need to find a day where all three of us can go. We want to know how much the tickets will cost so we can save up money for them.

What is the number of permutation for three aces and two kings? by Saki Q: How many poker hands contain exactly three aces and two kings? The answer for this combination question is 24, but what is the number of permutation when you have 3 aces and 2 kings?

What is the probability of picking three kings out of a deck? by Nicci J Q: Three cards are drawn from a standard deck. Each card standard deck. Each card is placed back in the deck after it is drawn, and the deck is shuffled completely each time. What is the probability that all three cards are kings?

A: there is a 1/13 chance of it. That is only if there is no jokers

What is the probability of drawing 3 kings from a deck without replacement? by duhstar Q: Three kings are randomly drawn from a deck of 52 cards WITHOUT replacement. What is the probability of this occurring? Please show me how to do this, don't just show me the answer, it'll help me understand the concept! Thanks! **********All 3 cards are drawn at once, though. Wouldn't I have to use the conditional formula?

A: There are four kings in a particular deck of cards. Whenever you draw one king, the amount of kings is reduced by one, but so is the amount of cards. At first, you have 4 out of 52 (4/52) chance to get a king. If you get one, you have 3/51 chance of getting another, as there's three kings left and 51 cards. After that, your chance is 2/50. To get the chance of drawing all three kings you need to multiply those probabilities: 4/52 * 3/51 * 2/50 equals your answer.

How can Sacramento Kings rebuild to the point they were in 2002? by Heart Break Kendrick Q: Right now it seems like The Orlando Magic has taken the Kings place, How long do you think will it take for The Kings to rebuild? Which new players do they need and who do they need to get rid of?

A: That is a good question. Presently all of the professional teams in Northern California suck (some worse than others). I am and have always been a Raiders fan but they SUCK (really SUCK) The 49ers SUCK and are in first place because Seattle seems to have bitten the dust, Arizona looks like a 1 year wonder. The A's Suck and so do the Giants but not quite as bad as the A's Golden State Warriors SUCKKKK, they pretty much need a new team and finally the Sacramento Kings, currently they suck but I am really wondering if the owner is just to afraid to spend any real money to get top notch players, especially with the economy the way it is and the unemployment rate in Sacramento is terrible (I live in Redding and it is 13% here)

A: west coast

How many kings throughout history have abdicated their throne to marry? by Q: I am doing a speech about when King Edward VIII abdicated his throne to marry the one he loved. I would like to use some statistics in my speech. If you could give me at least a rough estimate on how many kings and or queens have abdicated their throne to marry one they love it would be greatly appreciated.

A: I don't know of any others who've abdicated in order to marry. I can only think of one situation that even comes close: Albert, the only son and heir of Duke Ernest of Bavaria, secretly married a commoner named Agnes Bernauer in the early 1400's. For some obscure legal reason, this marriage would have made their children ineligible to inherit the dukedom. In effect Albert was "abdicating," but his father found out and had Agnes murdered before she could bear any children. You might also take a look at the Wikipedia article on morganatic marriage.

What players should the Sacramento Kings sign this year to become more competetive in the West? by OKCITY! Q: I think they need to resign Dalembart, Evans, Casspi, Greene and Jeter. They need more veteran leadership and a better starting small forward. If you were the Kings GM who would you sign?

A: They need a solid small forward who is young and athletic, I think they should go after Wilson Chandler then re-sign the rest. I don't think Dalembert would re-sign with them, DeAndre Jordan would be a good replacement.

Why did school history lessons start with the Normans and not the Saxon kings? by Chris C Q: There was reference to the last Saxon King - king Harold, and perhaps King Alfred was mentioned in passing, but it seems English primary school history lessons treat the Saxon kings somewhat harshly. What do others think?

A: I researched for two days on this and came up blank for the "most part". I don't normally spend so much time on "two" points. What did seem apparent is that this was an oppressed time for the English. I offer a few links below that may assist in determining in your own mind that this oppression was not accepted well and therefore a time that would like to be forgotten by as many Englishmen as possible. I agree that history should be honest and true, but often time history is written by those who are either victorious in war, or have a power over the masses. Hopefully I helped somewhat. Good luck!... ☺

How much do tickets to Kings Dominion with a passholder cost? by Q: My friend asked me to go to Kings' Dominion with him. He is a season pass holder, and I am not. I remember last year there was some kind of discount for a general admission ticket if you go with someone who has a pass. I looked on the website but I couldn't find it. Is this discount still applicable?

A: No, but my man Troy will hook you up. You need to go downtown and ask around. You'll find Troy. He'll hook you up with a 19% discount (non-negotiable.)

How does Banquo beget a line of kings if Malcolm ultimately wins the throne in Macbeth? by Q: At the end of Macbeth (the Shakespearean tragedy), Macduff kills Macbeth, thus deposing him and winning the throne for King Duncan's natural heir, his son Malcolm. Yet at the beginning, the three witches prophesied that Banquo would beget a line of kings or father a king. Please explain to me whether or not this prophecy came true, and if so, how. Thank you all.

A: About 250 years later, the son of Robert Bruce (probably Scotland's greatest king) died without offspring, and the crown came to the son of Robert's daughter, who had married Walter the Steward--i. e. Stewart. Their descendants ruled Scotland and later England as well until 1714--well, actually, until now. although the name is no longer Stewart. The scene in which Macbeth returns to the witches and is shown a vision of the descendants of Banquo as kings, with the line culminating in one who rules a double kingdom, is a compliment to King James VI of Scotland and I of England, who united the two countries after the death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603 and became Shakespeare's patron. (This was also the King James who commissioned the translation of the Bible. There's even a tradition that Shakespeare worked on it.) The hitch in all of this is that there's no real evidence that Banquo really existed. Still, if there was at least a legend or a tradition that he was an ancestor of Walter the Steward, you can see how he was thought to be the ancestor of a line of kings even though he was never a king himself.

What can be inferred from the fact that kings began to ask nobles for advice in running their kingdoms? by ...:::LondonLove:::... Q: What can be inferred from the fact that kings began to ask nobles for advice in running their kingdoms in the Middle Ages? 1: The kings wanted to do less work. 2: The kings realized they needed input from the people. 3: The kings did not know what they were doing. 4: The kings suspected the nobles were smarter then they were. Thank you in advance!

A: Kings have ALWAYS had advisors. Who better to ask for advice than someone nearly as powerful as you are?

When did kings in England lost their power, when did the prime minister thing start? by SwimGuy Q: I would like to know how did the kings in Englas simply stopped ruling. When did primer ministers start giving out orders? Who was the last king with some actual power?

A: The monarchs of Britain effectively lost their power following the deposing of James II. He was replaced with William of Orange who ruled, with his wife, at the behest of Parliament. When the last of the Stuarts, Queen Anne, died Parliament invited the Elector of Hannover to become the monarch (as George I) and the crown was settled upon the successors of Sophie, Electress of Hannover and that remains the position to date. During this time the first modern Prime Minister, Robert Walpole, came to power and the party system, then Whigs and Tories, slowly came into being. The powers of the King gradually declined as the power of Parliament, the Prime Minister and Cabinet increased. There was, however, no 'delegation' of power from King to Parliament as the first answer suggests.

How come Kings and Emperors weren't richer than Industrialists or Business people? by GuRu Q: For example people like Andrew Carnegie, or John D. Rockefeller are said to be richer than Roman Emperors or other great kings. Also it is said that king Solomon owned half of the world. How come these people are considered richer if they didn't actually have as much wealth as kings or emperors?

A: Way back when, there wasn't much distinction between the wealth of the sovereign and the wealth of the state. Yes, they had wealth, but they also had all of the expenses of maintaining the state. Governments don't come cheap; and the expenses could be ruinous (particularly when they went to war). Industrialists only had themselves to worry about, so they could amass great personal fortunes. Hope this answers your question.

?????????kings //?? by sophia kanchan Q: people make kings royal or royal are kings?

A: in fact a King can't, strictly speaking, be Royal .. why? the word Royal derives from the French Roi which means King .. so to say a King is Royal is tautological
