For Americans:

What state are you from?

What region of the country are you least familiar with, as far as knowing about the climate, terrain, industries, etc? (Or even just being able to name all the states in that area.)

I'm from Indiana. (That's, uh, right below the state that looks like a mitten, heh.) I'm least familiar with New England.

For some reason, when I downloaded the new version of iTunes, it put all my songs in there 3 times. Why the fuck did it do that, and how can I fix it without having to go through and individually deleting each of the 3000+ duplicates?

I figured it out.

ETA: Can I go back to iTunes v.6? Everyone's right, v. 7 sucks major donkey dick.

1. Any recommendations for men's electric shavers? My boyfriend is one of those people who needs to shave everyday to look profesional, but it's starting to wreak havoc on his face. He thinks an electric shaver would help, are they actually easier on your skin?

2. How do you forget about work when you're home? I have a high stress job and every night/weekend I just can't seem to stop thinking about it. Any ideas to push these thoughts from my head while I'm not at the office?

A: When asked I usually tell people that my dad was in the military so I lived all over but I grew up in the city of Stone Mountain, GA since I finished my last 3½ years of high school there and that's where my dad retired to.

EDIT: did those of you who stated that you moved out of your parents place at whatever age, pay rent then? or was it a case of "i moved in with my grandmother who did everything", or "i moved into an apartment, but my parents paid the rent, and all the bills, and did my washing" etc?

EDIT: i moved out of my parents home when i was 15, and payed for everything. continued with school. i'm now at uni, living in an apartment in the same suburb, paying everything too. Uni ressidences are expensive and constricting, at least from what i read, so nooo spankyou.
whenever we have holidays/intra semester break, people ask if i'm going home for the break... well, yeah, it's where i live. but they always mean my parents' home, which i haven't lived in since i was 15. how then, is it my home? it shits me

In the movie Reservoir Dogs, what the hell was the point of the Mr. Blue character? He's in 2 scenes for probably less than 5 minutes screen time in the entire movie, he says maybe 3 lines in the first one about how he liked Madonna, then he's just sitting in the background in the second scene he's in when Joe is giving everyone their names. Then finally at the end of the movie Joe makes the comment that he's dead. Why was he ever there in the first place? What was the reason for this character to ever exist in this movie?

EDIT:

I believe I'm getting senile in my old age. I can't for the life of me remember the actor who played Fairfax in Mel Gibson's Payback. Don't bother searching imdb. He's not credited. He's an older actor, who died a couple years back. He's been in all sorts of movies over the years. I get him mixed up with Lee Marvin sometimes. I wish I could think of any other movies he was in.

Anyone know who I'm talking about?

T_T I want to stitch. [Sep. 30th, 2006|04:39 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[morigale]
[Current Location |Not stitching.]
[mood |boredbored]

Ok, so, um.

Questions for those who cross-stitch or otherwise embroider.

1. What style and/or brand of stand do you recommend? I've tried simply using hoops, but I prefer the larger patterns so they get a bit unweildy. I've tried a lap stand, which is nice and sturdy but doesn't work well with any of my tables or chairs. And finally, I tried a floor stand that didn't work with any of my hoops (too loose) or the scroll-style holder (fell over repeatedly, then the clamp cracked)

2. Am I supposed to be able to finish my stitching by putting the end of the thread through some already-finished stitches, then start a new thread the same way, without having access to the back of my work? See, I'm looking up stands for my stitching and I can't find one that flips over without having to take everything off the damned stand!

I want to play a game on my (brand new blinging gaming) computer. I haven't played a computer game in years. I know, I'm a loser.

I used to play:
-Baldur's Gate
-Civ
-Colonization
-Machiavelli
-Lord of the Realm
-High Seas Trader

Many of those only exist in their old form and I can't get them to work on my computer. Also, hand movement games (like X-Box) aren't gonna work for me. What game(s) should I get and play? I don't like war-based games or gory kill-everyone games.

Also, what do you do when you're bored?

[fatchocobo]

[music |Nightwish - Walking In The Air]

Let's assume for a second here that past lives and reincarnation is somehow proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be true.
Let's also assume that you decide to try and find out who you were in a past life.

What would you like to have been in a past life?

- Someone famous, who everyone knows (President Washington, Marie Curie, etc)
- Someone famous who not so many people have heard of (Anne Bonny, who I doubt anyone here knows but whatever)
- Someone who was famous only in your country of residence
- Someone who was famous only in your county/state
- Someone who was famous only in your town/city
- A member of a famous group (for example, a witch in the Salem Witch Trials, a suffragette, etc)
- Just a random person who did nothing of significance in their entire lives

And for the not so law-abiding among us

- A world famous criminal (Charles Manson, a famous gang leader, Jack the Ripper)
- A slightly less famous, but still well known criminal (Mary Bell, for example)
- A petty criminal who was never caught
- A petty criminal who was executed

Secondly, if you do believe in past lives, proof or not, what do you THINK you were?

How do you install new CD-ROM drivers if your CD-ROM drivers become corrupt and thus you can no longer install them from your Windows CD?

I've found very little help anywhere on the web and nothing about where to download drivers. I only need generic ones.

My grandmother died a couple months ago, and my grandfather's dealing with it the best he can. For every Christmas for the past 53 years, my grandma made a plate of Christmas cookies that my grandpa and my uncle (who lived w/them) would nibble on all season. My uncle moved out earlier this year, and now my grandma's gone, so my grandpa's in that house alone (other side of the country, too).

My question is: I want to bake him cookies this season to kind of help with the holiday thing, but I don't want it to be a glaring reminder of his lost wife. They were superclose for so long.

Do you think it's a good idea??

What are some things your parents have asked/said to you that made you uncomfortable and/or laugh?

I have a K10 Royale with virgin mobile prepaid service (I know, I'm really moving up in the world). I want to take Cake's "Shut the fuck up" and make a ringtone out of that. Would I just trim the mp3 file in audacity? Then what? Do I txt the file to myself? And, other then those scam sites, are there any places where I can get free virgin mobile ringtones (or ringtones that you have to pay for, as long as they offer something more then "I'm bringing sexy back").

Also, if you live away from your parents house, how old were you when you moved? What where the circumstances behind why you moved (college, marriage, freedom)?

The Question Club

[bellapalmera]
How much would it cost for someone who has no health insurance to get a lump checked out? I wish this was something that could wait until I get hired for real at my job and get some benefits, but it's not and I'm actually really scared. And also how do I find a doctor in a town I've never had medical care in before? ok duh. Ignore that.

P.S. The lump is in a really embarrassing spot*... would I need to see a doctor that specializes in that area of the body or would I need to just go to the hospital or something? I don't know how this all works :(

*By really embarrassing spot, I mean my anal area. Now that I've undoubtedly attracted those w/a 12-year-old's sense of humor...

EDIT:

Thanks everyone for your replies, be they constructive or otherwise. This entry was a production of me freaking the hell out... I've called my mom and I've had a good night's sleep and I feel better (emotionally) now, but last night I freaked out and so I'm in much better spirits now. Blah...

Where are my parents?

They went out shopping for yardwork stuff this morning but should have been home several hours ago (as it is nearly 9pm now) and had no other plans for the weekend. However, they are not answering their home or cell phones (and it's an hour drive for me to get to their house). Suggestions? My morbid little mind is working on the flaming car wreck scenarios already.

I've recently started trying out the Text-To-Speech function of my Windows XP to read some documents aloud to me in the Adobe and MS Readers. Its pretty handy and makes following along a little easier, but I'm finding the voices to be just stupid. They say the punctuation out loud and don't understand words like couldn't so they spell them out.

Are there any voices out there that don't do this? Where can I find them?

I know most of them do because this is a function for the impaired, but I'm hoping to find some that can just pause for a period, or make the sentence sound like a question instead of stating "question mark". I'm willing to pay if I find a good one that sounds decently natural and knows the english language. I don't expect proper pronunciation of every word or name, i'm just really annoyed with the fact the ones I'm finding keep saying the punctuation out loud.

Just wondering who here has an "exotic pet"? For example, flying squirrels, skunks, sugargliders, hedgehogs, etc. Just anything besides the dog/cat/hamster/fish/etc.

Which exotic pet(s) do you have?
What do people think about them?

What is your care routine with them? Approx how much do you spend on them?
What's their behavior/action like? (For example, more aloof, more friendly, playful, etc)
What do you want to tell people who wants to get your exotic pet?
