Saddam Enrages Bush With Full Compliance
WASHINGTON, DC—President Bush expressed frustration and anger Monday over a U.N. report stating that Iraqi president Saddam Hussein is now fully complying with weapons inspections. "Enough is enough," a determined Bush told reporters. "We are not fooled by Saddam's devious attempts to sway world opinion by doing everything the U.N. asked him to do. We will not be intimidated into backing down and, if we have any say in the matter, neither will Saddam." Bush added that any further Iraqi attempt to meet the demands of the U.N. or U.S. will be regarded as "an act of war."

translation help

An author is using a metaphor of the psychic ability to read the history of objects (like say, you touch a necklace and you know the wearer was strangled with it), and I've forgotten the English term for that psychic ability. Anyone?

Follow-up question: does the term psychometry have any social scientific meaning, beyond its supernatural one?

Waaah :-(

Toothache, neckache, backache, slept two hours last night, and I’ve got a cough that’s aggravating all those aches.

Boy do I feel sorry for myself. But at least I have Neverwinter Nights now to wallow in.

Symbolism

In art, literature, and film, what is symbolic of death or suicide or the afterlife or hell?

I’ve got red light and fire for hell, and snow for death, but what are the other common symbolisms used for such morbidities?

(the smell of bananas? Nah, wouldn’t work at all)
