1. If someone says they're from the 'east coast' what do you think of? If I'm from eastern PA (but not Philly) is that really the east coast?
2. Do you ever use scissors to cut up your food? Just curious how common this is. I do it all the time.
3. Is an MBA really worth it? I don't live in a very competetive area (like NYC), my work doesn't pay for it or require it, I'm not sure I really want to be a manager, and it's alot of money (about $40k more) to finish this degree....I go to a local, well respected school but not a top school. It's hard for me to imagine where I would need it, but then I didn't know the job I have now(in sales support) existed 6 months ago...so maybe I do need the business degree?
ok, so i need help with figuring out a band name and/or song name:
they were featured on myspace, maybe a month or two ago, the are hip-hop/rap (i think), and they are a culturaly diverse group of maybe 6 or 7 men... i think the song was about peace, or unity or something, i've also seen the video in american eagle
can anyone help me?
What is your favorite recipe for a dinner type meal? I'm looking to try some new recipes and would prefer some tried and true ones. Basically anything is fair game, but reasonably priced cuisine is preferred. Neither of us are veggie or have any food allergies.
What's the best software video player for Windows XP?
Best as in plays the largest number of files. Also would be nice if it had the option to adjust the video height/width ratio arbitrarily, and had video controls in full-screen mode. And if it can adjust to some file corruption (like VLC does this fairly well), all the better.
I ask because currently I have a ton of players just to be sure I can play various video files.
Here's what I currently have, in an attempt to play anything thrown at me:
Windows Media Player 10
Windows Media Player classic
MPlayer Movie player
The Core Media Player
VLC Media Player
If I could replace those with one, it'd be quite nice. Or even just narrow them down a bit.
This is a real stupid question, but...I figure someone may know:
Is there any way to get a list of the songs that appear on the radio stations on the Sims 2 and their expansion packs, so I can download the real things?
I can NOT get one of the songs from the college rock radio station out of my head. It's got a male voice, and it sounds like he's saying 'dig a dig da doo'. *coughs* If that helps.
I'm having an exchange student from Germany stay with me for about ten weeks this Fall.
I live in the Milwaukee area and I can't drive (although I have several friends, three siblings, and a dad who can drive).
What are some good activities to do with her, or things to show her... basically, my question is, what should I do with her for 69 days?
She's 16 years old, kind of punk and is interested in languages... I can't actually think of anything else she's really interested in.
What's the best to drink with rum? (Something simple, not a
mixed drink cocktail.)
I saw an advertisement today for some new shaving thing. I don't even remember what it's called. All I know is that it's marketed to women, it's pink, it has no blades, and it's supposed to keep your legs smooth twice as long as shaving, without nicks or razor bumps.
1. What's it called?
2. How does it work?
3. Does it work?
4. Would it work on my neckbeard?
there is an odd, very loud beeping noise coming from a nearby apartment. the sound is *beep, beep, beep, rest* repeat for, oh, 5 hours. i would have knocked on the door but, 1) it is now 2am and 2) it happens to be coming from the apartment of the registered sex offender. it is not so loud that i am not going to be able to sleep, but i walked by his place and it is really loud over there. so i'm surprised no one has done anything. anyway, my question is, WHAT COULD THIS NOISE BE? keep in mind, this is coming from the apartment of a complete weirdo.
Apologies if I make no sense, I've only had an hours sleep.
I did a stupid thing, and allowed my 11 year old daughter to invite a couple of friends over for a sleepover. It's now 5am, they are still awake, and my poor exhausted brain is trying to come up with ideas for revenge.
My plan so far involves them being asleep, 7am, and noise. Lots of noise. I started off small, banging pots and pans, and now I'm up to Marilyn Manson as loud as is legal on a Sunday morning.
So, how would you exact revenge?
I need help in a hurry!
I'm going to a wedding today and I'm going to my friend/hairstylist to do my hair in about 30 minutes.
We're supposed to have our hair up. My friend asked me to bring pictures of what I want. I have hair that falls just past my shoulders with a couple layers.
She's going to curl it and pin it up with bobby pins.
Does anyone have any pictures of up-dos they particularly like? There should be room for a flower as well.
*goes off to search*
How can I
reformat wipe a hard disk without without the Windows XP CD?
What Linux distro should I install on my six-year-old Dell laptop? I know nothing about any of them. I need an easy, graphical installation and I'd like it to recognize my wireless pcmcia card and digital camera without a whole lot of effort on my part, preferably none. Fedora Core and Ubuntu have both be recommended to me already. Do you support either of those?
How would I go about cleaning fabric flip flops? any suggestions?

Why is it such a sin to mow the lawn when the grass is wet?
I ask because it's soggy and gross here, and my housemate has decided that he MUST mow the grass today. Right now. And I'm not sure he won't cause the world to end or something.

Which memoirs do you consider the best?
one of the course outcomes for my english class says i will learn to "interpret how ideas under discussion are related and how they relate to your own experience". What the heck does that mean?? /puzzled/ I THINK it means understanding other people's ideas but I am pretty much confused by the highfalutin' way they worded it.
What do you smell like? Like, what does your shampoo and conditioner and body wash and lotion and whatever else you apply on a daily basis smell like? [Pretend like I'm walking by you and I smell..."Oh! Yummy! She smells like flowers!" or whatever]

I'm looking for a new one to watch over the summer, since I don't really have time for TV the rest of the year in school.
I've already watched all of:
Sex & The City
Any genre. :)
Has anyone here taken a beginner guitar class in college (or something similar)?
I have a friend who's taking the class who is not musically inclined at all, although she's a big music fan. I'm a musician (keyboard/piano and voice) who's learning guitar and she's asked me to give her sort of an introduction to music lesson or two to know what she'll be going into this fall.
I'm going to teach her how to tune her guitar tonight and how to recognize when a note is higher, lower, or the same than another note. She doesn't have a keyboard, so I'm going to find some online resources to help her out. Last night I taught her the difference between acoustic and electric and how pickups work/what they do.
What else should I keep in mind when teaching someone how to think about music from the perspective of playing it? Surely she won't encounter sheet music in this class, or will she? I'm assuming it'll be based mostly on chords.
Any and all help is welcome. I plan on posting in the beginner guitar community after I hear from you guys here.

1. What is your favorite perfume?
Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen's MyQueen.
2. How would you describe the way it smells?
I really have no idea how to describe Marc Jacobs but it's my favorite ever. MyQueen kind of smells like Djarum Blacks and Licorice(way better than it sounds, I swear) in the beginning, and than it sort of changes within a few minutes to another smell I can't describe, but still good.
