Major Indecision [Apr. 3rd, 2006|12:00 am]

How many times did you change your major?

If you changed at all, what was your original major and what did you change it to?

My car is sick? [Apr. 3rd, 2006|12:25 am]
The Question Club


My car is a '98 Chevy Malibu with 110,000 miles. It's a former rental car, and we had it checked out carefully before we bought it four years ago.

When the car is stopped, but still in Drive, it shakes a bit. The shaking stops if it's moved into Park. This is something the car has done since I bought it, and isn't a problem at all. It's been to the mechanic and had other problems fixed without them finding anything to account for this.

For the few last months or so, however, the car has started dying if left sitting for too long while in Drive. This happens sometimes in drive-thrus, and sometimes at very long stoplights. I've been assuming it's just another car quirk, and putting it into park at long lights.

Anyway, my question is this: Is this a sign of a serious engine problem that will cause my car to go kablooey? What part of the engine is likely to be causing the problem, and is it expensive to replace?

(Obviously, the best answer here is to take the car to a mechanic. It's due for an oil change, anyway, but I was going to take it to one of those cheap Jiffy Lube-type places that makes its money from telling poor, gullible folks like me that they need to charge $400 to replace the headlight fluid. I just want to know if it might be worth my while to spend a little more money on an oil change at a trustworthy shop that can check out the rest of the car for me.)

1. How much water do you drink every day?

2. Do you take vitamins? If so, which?

3. I'm a progressive. My school is having Ann Coulter to speak on Wednesday. I can either:
a. Go with a group of friends who are politically similar to myself. We plan on having a discussion afterward, and if I go, I'll be filming as much of her tirade as I can and possibly sending the best bits to Crooks and Liars.
b. Stay home on principle. Going might show the school that her talk is popular, and they might have more speakers like her. The center where she's speaking is going to fill whether or not I go, though. Tickets are free. If they weren't I wouldn't go at all.
What should I do?

4. Political alignment?

5. Should the following be legal in all parts of your country, regardless of their current status?
a. Alcohol
b. Marijuana
c. Tobacco
d. Other drugs
e. Prostitution
f. Gambling
h. Sodomy
i. Same-sex marriage
j. Adoption by gay parents
k. Sex between an adult and a minor
l. Teacher-led prayer in public school classrooms
m. Consumption of animal products
n. Abortion
o. Birth Control
p. Sex education in schools
q. Sex between minors

Windows 95 Password Bipass [Apr. 3rd, 2006|09:05 am]
The Question Club


I recently gave an old laptop computer to a friend of mine. I hadn't used it in ages, and completely forgot that it is password-protected. For the life of me I cannot remember the password/username combination, and I do not have the original setup disk. Any way to reload Windows (we don't care about lost content), and/or bypass the username/password so that she can get onto the desktop and actually use the thing?

Thanks in advance. :)

While helping a friend with garage sale stuff, we found this weird musical instrument thing. It's a trapezoid, with wires stretched across it and a hole in the middle. It came with a stack of music, cards cut in such a way that you wedge them under the strings and the notes on the sheet line up with the wires you need to pluck. Bunch of english-language songs, like 'yankee doodle' and 'twinkle twinkle little star' and such. It is marked made in belarus. Around the hole in the middle are cyrillic letters, to me looks like nepene(n with weird tail on front)o4ka. (except with the 4 open on top, like it is on a digital clock)
there is also a logo with a stylised bird/stick.

What is this? where could I get one?

Egyptian/Arabic MTV? [Apr. 3rd, 2006|01:03 pm]
The Question Club


A freind of mine took me out to eat at a really neat Egyptian resturant the other week. The dining area had several TVs tuned to what looked like an Egyptian or Arabic verison of MTV with these great music videos. (I'm assuming it was a satellite station).

I was really intrigued by what I got to watch while we were eating but I don't have the first clue about where to look up any of the artists or vidoes we saw (and I don't have any names since I don't read Arabic. :D ). I'd like to check out some more videos and look up the music but my google fu is weak and I'm not bringing up much on current pop stars in that area of the world.

Anyone got any suggestions?

ETA: NM, I googled "Arabic Music Charts" and found what I was looking for.

What's this song? [Apr. 3rd, 2006|04:00 pm]
The Question Club


Okay so I'm trying to figure out what this song I heard last night is. I've heard it before, it seems to be a popular club/dance song. It's got a very cool/distinctive horn part, and I drew a crude diagram of the rhythm:

I'm not sure what the actual note steps are, but they do ascend like that. That part repeats several times.. I know there's another part of the song when that's not playing, but I can't really remember how it goes. I'm not even sure if there are any vocals in this song?

So, if anyone knows what the song is or has a guess, please let me know! It's been echoing in my head all night/day and I want to hear it again.

I was getting into the shower today and hit my foot on the side of the bathtub, hearing a crack. Now, I've had a broken toe before, and it was painful. My toe is a bit sore and it's rather bruised. If it's not as painful as when I broke my toe before, could it still be broken or maybe just a fracture? I know you can't really do anything for broken toes.

Also, if it is broken/fractured/whatever, should I get it checked out or would I be okay not going to the doc to get it checked out? I mean, can it get infected or would it have to have torn the skin to do that? (Back in the day, people would sometimes die from infections from broken bones, so that's why I'm asking. I apologize if I'm a total idiot, but I'm also a bit of a hypochondriac.)

missing parts. [Apr. 3rd, 2006|07:14 pm]

I just got back from Sephora. When I was almost home I took the perfume I bought out of the bag because I wanted to use some. It was missing the sprayer part. I have the same kind of perfume (but in other scents) so I have other sprayers I could take off and use on this one. I'd rather not have to go back, as I'm not super fond of the people who work there.

Should I use one that I already have or return it? If I take it back will they just give me a new sprayer part or a new perfume?

ok, random observation [Apr. 3rd, 2006|09:18 pm]
The Question Club


I've never thought about it before...

but when i dance, like with boys (not in the girl circles we all know so well), they look at me (and by they, i mean the person i'm dancing with).
and it always surprises me because i always avoid eye contact when I dance.
Not really purposely, but just. I don't know. I just don't look. Heaven knows where i do look. But just not up at my dancing partner.

Lately though, i've been looking, and it's so cute. I always get so surprised to look up and see my partner looking at me, since I hadn't been looking.

Is this just a weird thing I do? What is normal to look at your partner while dancing, or not to look?
I asked a friend and she says she doesn't look either, but I need a bigger opinion.

If it's more normal not to look, does dancing while making eye contact (and smiling) with your partner mean anything more significant?
