I'm looking for a particular bear I had as a kid. It was one of the Avon Christmas teddy bears that they released each year. This one was probably from somewhere in 1986-1988. He was white and in a... standing pose (as opposed to sitting up, meaning his legs and arms were straight down rather than bent). He was wearing a knit sweater with a Christmas pattern... I think it was red with a green stripe across the chest and white snowflakes and I think he also wore a matching hat with a pompom. He may have had a scarf but I'm not entirely sure on that point. He did not have pants or shoes.

Edit: I found a picture of my bear with his sweater visible! It's small and blurry and crappy but that's what I'm looking for. He's really just a basic white bear, but I really want to replace my childhood bear. I miss him.

I've googled every combination of "Avon" "bear" "Christmas" and other keywords that I can think of, and I've found plenty of other Avon bears and toys that I owned, but not this particular bear. So if anyone could help me, especially if you can find a year of his release so I can search ebay/amazon, I'd be supremely grateful. D:

*FOUND* Typical! As soon as I made this post my googling came to fruition. If anybody is interested the programe is called Traders: Millions by The Minute and I was after S1Ep2.

Trying to find the name of this tv show:

- From the last 5 years. Definitely over 1 year ago.
- Non-fiction/documentary
- Either one or two episodes. Definitely not a full length series.
- Followed members the general public/people who had absolutely no experience in stocks and shares but invested in the stock market and became rich from it/were really good at it.
- Think it was on Channel 4
- In the advert for it one woman was showing the interviewer her stocks and shares account and it currently had something like £1m in it.

About 1968, a mall gift shop called Matsuri's operated in Hayward CA. One poster displayed showed a vista as from a mountaintop with steps leading up to the POV (of someone not shown) and each step was marked with titles, such as "Self-Sacrifice," "Humility," etc., with "Love" being the topmost shown. In the background far below was a beautiful valley. This may have been a Portal Publications poster, as many shops had them at the time. Would anyone remember this poster?

Ebay has this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Visionary-Steps-to-the-Mountaintop-Vintage-Original-Poster-by-Joseph-Parker-/221654584411?hash=item339ba48c5b:g:-FoAAOSwyZ5Uq4FI

Joseph Parker is the artist from 1969.

For a friend:

I'm trying to remember (the name of) a song. It's from at least 5 years ago, probably around 10 years ago, possibly more than that. It is by a guy(s.)
It's probably a weird sort of alternative genre. I think it is 'said' more than 'sung,' but it's definitely not rap. It's about a guy who goes back home to his mom's house. I think he gets the key from under a dusty porch. He goes inside and starts taking money from her purse, and her boyfriend shoots him.

This is probaby a long shot as I've been trying to remember this for years to no avail despite numerous Google searches but maybe someone here can help?

Years ago (and I mean years, probably like at least ten) I watched an episode of this show with my mother. All I can remember about the show is that (I think) it was a crime show and that it had a blonde female lead. Mainly what I remember is this one scene of the show that was about these two very young twin girls and had a shot of them going down a slide and wearing like denim hats with a big flower on them? And I think the characters may have been child actors because I remember thinking 'Hey! They're like Mary Kate and Ashley!' And I believe something happened to either one of or both the twins and that was what the episode was about but I'm not sure.

If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it because I'm starting to think I just dreamed this or something because my mother doesn't remember it all!

I'm hoping someone can help me identify a comic book I read two stories from in about 1994-5. It's soft sci-fi (though the stories I remember had a more fantasy feel), and the protagonists are a man and a woman with a spaceship. I think they're troubleshooters or agents for some sort of galactic government.

In the first story, they encounter some sort of hollow planet, with the inner surface colonised by humans. After some adventures I don't remember much about, they use a bunch of explosive plants to turn the planet inside out. Even my 13-year old self thought that science was a little dodgy.

The second one, I remember in more detail. They're on a planet that I think began with S, where the queen is some kind of fertility goddess, and repopulates the planet herself every generation, with a father who must prove himself worthy by a series of trials. The candidates are our hero, a proud warrior guy, a musclebound worker's hero who looks a bit like Bane, and a druidic, hippy guy. They all work their way through the challenges, with our hero comically struggling every step of the way. At the end, the goddess asks them to describe their visions for the planet--conquering power, industrial empire, eco-friendly utopia--and the hero doesn't have one, thinking it's not right to force a worldful of people to his vision. The goddess agrees with his vision ("I don't like those who want to lock people up in a box to which only they hold the key."), and they get with the repopulating. The heroine "rescues" him some time later, where he's living in a community with all the other fathers--but because it's such "an exhausting task", they've all shrunk to about six inches tall. The story ends with the hero being transported back home in a hamster cage, and the heroine assuring him that she'll get round to finding a cure real soon.

(I feel so ashamed..)

about three years ago I used to play a game that had a diver in it. (scuba?) It had the usual aspects, collect things, build things, explore other sections. But for the life of me I cant find it in my blocked apps. I want to play again now that I have better internet.

Does anyone know the name of the song playing in this video? I love it but I can't seem to find the name. =X Thanks! (Below the cut so I don't take up too much space.)

I watched a tv show a while back on Amazon Prime. It was a British crime show, and I think it was relatively recent (most likely created in the last five or so years). The protagonist is a young, sprighty redhead who is new to her cop/detective job. The pilot chronicled her first day on the job, in which she vomits from seeing a dead body.

I know it's not much, but that's all I remember.
