Ok, I just went to the United States Census Bureau and found the following information.

This is from their FAQ section:

This is the FAQ section, link provided

Question: What does the term Hispanic or latino origin mean?

Answer: For the Census 2000 and the American Community Survey (ACS): People who identify with the terms "Hispanic" or "Latino" are those who classify themselves in one of the specific Hispanic or Latino categories listed on the Census 2000 or ACS questionnaire—"Mexican," "Puerto Rican," or "Cuban"—as well as those who indicate that they are "other Spanish, Hispanic, or Latino." Origin can be considered as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth of the person or the person’s parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States. People who identify their origin as Spanish, Hispanic, or Latino may be of any race.

Now, this is a serious question. My mother was born in Brazil, can I claim I am hispanic from a technical standpoint. In other words, good conscience and morals aside, can I technically, legally, claim I am half hispanic or not?

"My life has been a series of smashing successes and devestating defeats. I've been captains of sports teams in Baseball and Soccer, I've been the #3 ranked under 18 surfer on the East Coast, gotten 5's on AP exams, built a business from scratch to generating profits of 100k annually in just two years, won National Director's Award at Morgan Stanley for outstanding performance and paid a $25,000 bonus. At the same time, I've been arrested for possession of marijuana, divorced by the woman of my dreams, lost over 3 million of my clients' dollars in poor equity investments and even developed a gambling problem."

too personal?

We need help putting this one together, it may have been experimental but, the guy that remembered it said he dind't have experimental LR section SO...this is one of the elusive last 5.

Help us reconstruct, we think it went something like

Nylon rope generates waste material that polutes the environment, but, even if cotton were to replace nylon as rope, it would not reduce this particular type of pollution.

You had to resolve the apparent discrepancy

Answer, something like, any nylon not used in rope would be used in another application

I also remember something about sociologists admiring physicists because of their applications of universal laws (but I had experimental section)

I also remember two questions that said, "the two speakers are committed to disagreeing with....A: B: C: D: E:
