What have you that has not been given to you?

User Avatar
The Answer is Shining in Your Eyes Remove the scales from your eyes my brothers - you can't do it alone! 1 Corinthians 4:7 - For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not? What you have you did not earn but was given to you by God. You think you are perfect --- you are not, and neither am I. Spread the good news that Jesus is the answer! Matthew 7:7 - Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you. Another Answer What have you that has not been given to you? Nothing. EVERYTHING resides in the mind of God.

How do mushers protect the feet of snow dogs?

User Avatar
The dogs have thick callous pads and fur on their feet. They don't need booties or such like city dwellers do for their dogs. I suspect that the whole jacket and bootie thing is more about how the city owners feel than how their dogs feel.

Why did joe redington want to have the iditarod race?

User Avatar
Because he thought that the dogs shouldn't be taken from Alaska and he felt bad for them. He thought the last big race was a good history so he decided to repeat the same route every year.

What is the red lantern award?

User Avatar
It is the award given to the last musher to cross the finish line in Nome. It began as a joke years ago, and became a good luck symbol for the race. A "widow's lamp" is lite in Nome, and hung at the finish line, the same day the Iditarod, (dog sled race) starts in Anchorage Alaska. The lantern will be left burning day and night until the last contestant crosses the finish line. The last musher to cross the finish line in Nome, is responsible for turning the lantern off. Now, the last to finish the race is awarded the Red Lantern Award. It shows the perseverance and dedication needed to finish the race. It usually takes 14-15 days to finish the Iditarod.

Who do you think should hold the consecutive win record?

User Avatar
The actual fact would be, that the Giants had not been defeated for 26 straight games, surely a feat that is quite a task to match. If you reversed it, and made it losses, and the Giants had not been able to win in 26 tries, even though they tied one, they still did not win, and the Cubs came close by losing 21...... We wouldn't tag the Cubs with the worst losing streak because the Giants almost won a game.

Who is balto's father?

Nobody knows for sure because Balto's father was never brougt up when the Balto films were created. Fans have created their own versions of Balto's father, but as for an official character, he doesn't exist.

Why do your ears pop?

User Avatar
I think it's due to a change in atmospheric pressure; if you go up or down the density of the air around varies. As you fall closer to the Earth's surface the density of the air increases (probably due to gravity). I think that the pressure of the air inside your ears should be equal to the pressure of the air surrounding you. Your ears should naturally adjust the pressure inside your head to account for any vertical movement, however too much vertical movement will be too much for your ears to change pressure levels without quickly evacuating air (which gives the popping sensation). You ears would most likely pop when you are in a helicopter or plane, also scuba divers employ measures to deliberately pop their ears as they descend (as water is a lot more pressured than air). You should notice that just before your ear pops, the quality of sound input will be poor, this is due to the bubble of air. Air can be evacuated through your nose. This can explain why you get ear aches when you have a cold. Ear popping can often relieve pain in your ear in such incidents. You can deliberately pop your ears by taking in a deep breath and closing your mouth, then pinch your nose with your finger and thumb and try to blow out all the air in your lungs through your nose (air shouldn't escape if you are holding your nose properly), the resulting density of air in your head will force your ear to pop. This is the trick divers use.

Asked in Mazda RX-7, Germany in WW2, Dogsled Racing, Iditarod

Why does my rx7 idle very high when I first start it?

User Avatar
Answer the problem would probably be a leaky vacuum line to the egr-valve. Answer Your RX7 is supposed to do this. It's the car's way of warming up the turbos quickly to get them ready for use. It should rev to about 3000rpm when started from cold if you don't touch the accelerator, and stay like that for about 15-20 seconds. If you blip the pedal, during this phase, it will stop the high revs and it will idle as normal. You'll find it doesn't do this if the engine is warm, only when it's cold. in the late model 2nd gen cars the fast idle at start up is the choke function. esp when the motor is cold. once it starts a quick push on the gas pedal releases the automatic choke

Bib number 1 is the honorary musher. Each year, the Iditarod honors someone as a special thank you to the person for doing something for the race.
