comment SIM card not detected after installing new ROM
You're better off talking about issues with the ROM with its creator, or to flash to stock or another ROM when you encounter a broken one.

comment Swapping Android S3 phones
Are they the same submodel and either unlocked or locked to the same carrier? If not, look into unlocking it. We have several questions about transferring contacts, files, etc. so try a search and see what you find.

comment What food / drink affects vocal characteristics?
Pineapple seems questionable since it is known to degrade tissue (proteins), especially in the throat and mouth.

comment I'm tonedeaf. If I sing to my baby, will I damage his/her musical ear?
Likely poor singing will have a slight negative or neutral effect on their musical ability, but there are other more important considerations. Giving a child attention and speaking/singing to them is instrumental in early development. I'm not sure that we're the best site for these concerns.

Many Google products are currently blocked in China, so there may be some issues.

comment Use of Music Theory in Composition
@FrobberOfBits Maybe I am not totally sure what you mean by "supposed" -- "intended" or "able". Whether theory should inform composition is up to you, and what I'm trying to get at in my answer. If you meant how can theory inform composition, I would recommend memphisslim's answer; at this point I don't feel comfortable going back and adding what he said to my own answer.

comment Did Faramir reject the One Ring because the blood of Numenor ran true in him?
Children receive half of their genes from each parent. Theoretically, it's possible for two children to receive the exact opposite halves from each parent. Obviously it's generally something in between, but it's quite easy to suppose that one child would inherit the distinctive traits of the bloodline and the other would not. So besides directly contradicting the quote Darth Satan references, I believe your assertion to be generally incorrect.

In the latter case I agree with you. In the former, I'm with Shevliaskovic. Regular close votes shouldn't be cast with lesser care. In any case, the actions you would take in those cases as a mod seem right on. Thanks for clarifying.
