Help. I want to get my mom a nice photo printer for her birthday. After several visits to my local circuit citys, best buys, etc., I found a printer that meets what I'm looking for.
It is an Epson CX6000. I like it because it's within my budget ($119 at Circuit City), can print 4x6, 5x7 AND 8x11 photos and takes several types of portable media (USB, memory card etc.).
So I write down the model number and search amazon.com. Negative reviews up the wazoo - it apprarently eats up ink in as few as three uses, which makes me oh-so sad.
So my question is, does anyone own an Epson photo printer and can prove it's not as bad as I'm imagining? Or, can anyone suggest a similar machine that meets my requirements that costs about $125? (I can't afford much more.)
Who do you think was at fault for this altercation, the cashier or the customer? Why?

How do superheros build their secret lairs?
I mean, it's not like they can call up a contractor for this and none of these guys were Carpenters By Day, Superheros By Night. But you know they have to have SOMEONE do work down there. Like Batman - you can't tell me that his mansion just happened to come with a tube for him to slide down that will put the Batsuit on him. Uh-uh, no way, I'm not buyin' it.
What do you put in it?
What do you think you would have put in it 10 years ago?

Most people in this community are under 30, so only they should fill out this question. Bush gets Congress on his side, and decides it's in our best interests to invade Iran AND Korea. Manpower, which has been operating under capacity, will be replenished with a draft of everyone under 30. Not all will see combat. Some will act as soldiers protecting our coast. Most will be shipped overseas with sufficient equipment and training. All draft dodgers will be considered traitors and thrown in jail for 5 years. What do you do?
Could you date someone who had the exact opposite viewpoint as you regarding abortion, gay rights and sex education? They feel as strongly about those issues as you do, except on the opposite page
Your closest friend has a significant other they're crazy about. One day, you bump into the SO coming out of a motel with another man/woman, hand in hand. Upon seeing you, they break down and say that they know how bad this is and they break up with that other person before your very eyes. It's over. The SO wants to stay with your friend, and would appreciate that you don't tell him or her, for it would end the relationship. You ask how long the SO has been cheating on your friend. The answer is, about 5 months, but it's only been physical. Something to consider: what your friend know won't hurt him or her, and the continuing relationship will make keep them happy. Do you tell your friend?
You have a major crush on someone. You get a strong feeling they like you too, but they're in a relationship. It drives you crazy that they're taken, but you can't stop crushing on them. One day, the object of your affection gets hit by a car and is wheelchair bound with little chance of walking again. Their boyfriend/girlfriend shows their true colors and dumps them on the spot. Your crush is available now, and spends more time coming to see you at work, wheeling into your workplace and alludes that it would be nice if you guys went out. Do you go out with him or her now?
Nuclear war is imminent, and it so happens that you have a nuclear fallout shelter. Because of the collapse of the Cold War, most of your city's fallout shelters have been closed or converted into other facilities, so most people in the city will have nowhere to go when the bombs fly. Your shelter can hold 3 others besides yourself with enough food and oxygen for a year. With 4 people, it's only 9 months, with 5 people, only 6 months, with 6 people, only 3 months, and anyone beyond that point it's less than a month. Nuclear winter is a lengthy ordeal, you know. Who do you take into the shelter with you?

You wake up one morning feeling like absolute shit. Your head hurts, your body aches and you’re noticing some weird awful smell coming from somewhere in the room. Before you can get up out of bed, your room mate/parent/significant other bursts into the room to tell you to get up. When they see you, they freeze in their tracks. . .their eyes grow wide and all of the color drains from their face. They look like they’ve seen a ghost. You try to ask them what’s wrong, but all that comes out is “Uuuuuuggnnnnnnngghhh-braaaaaaaaaains. . . . .mruuuugsnsah”. At this, they promptly pass out.
When you get up out of bed, you realize that the only way you can walk is in a weird, slow shuffle-and you have the over whelming urge to put your arms out in front of you while doing so. You shuffle off to the bathroom and are shocked by what you see in the mirror. You look well, like the living dead. You check your pulse, and find that it’s gone. . .and that you suddenly no longer need to breathe.
At this point, what would you do?
They have some type of deal for $.09 prints (when you buy in bulk), but it's a 'limited time only deal' so it sounds a bit suspect to me.
Where do you get your pictures developed?
I usually use Wal-Mart, but I've used Walgreens as well

We are driving there, but won't be using our car while there we will be taking cabs or walking to get around, does anyone have suggestions on cheaper places than the hotel for parking?
2. If so, who's on yours?
3. Who's on your SO's list?
4. You're with your SO, hand in hand, walking through a hotel, when one of your list people passes you and makes a suggestive overture your way, with a sexy wink. He/she tosses you a room key and says that he/she finds you attractive and is considerably drunk and horny, and that you're invited to join them for a night in his/her penthouse suite. They look really good. You look at your SO. Your SO looks at you. This could be the only time you ever run into this celebrity. Do you go up to the suite?
5. Same scenario, except it's someone from your SO's list (Brad or Scarlett or whoever), and they get tossed the room key instead. Your SO looks at you, you look at them. Would you let them go up to the room? Would you encourage them?
They made us put a cow in our living room, and they made it defecate and urinate in the house. Everyone's angry because they didn't pay them the way they should have.
Reading about these poor people, the first thing that came to mind was that I had to ask tqc how much I would have to pay them to film a cow taking a dump in their living room.
So, what's your price?
Keep in mind that I am originally from Oklahoma. I can find a cow if need be.
I am getting a C in the class, and it is a high C, but I don't know how! I don't understand much of what is happening, and don't know how to do many of the problems. Most of them I feel like I am just guessing on them.
So, the next class is 5 days a week 50 minutes each class. I don't feel I will be ready for it. Should I repeat the class I am taking and try for better understanding?
It has been over 22 years since I have taken a math class.

You've been chosen at random for this new experimental drug, which has been problem-free on 5 series of lab rats. They understand that this will be a difficult burden to live with for the remainder of your days, and are prepared to reinburse you financially for your sacrifice. They have big investors, and are prepared to offer you 6 million dollars in a one-time payout, which will be a drop in the bucket once the FDA endorses them and they go public. The only thing you will be asked to do is be injected with the drug, and submit to 2 weeks of scientific monitoring and checkups, and 2 checkups per year for the next 10 years.
Would you agree to be a guinea pig for this new drug and take the money?
However, I was wondering, when you run out of yarn on your yarn ball, what do you do? Is there a way to continue with a new ball of yarn?

Two years ago, a pair of unmarried students put their baby up for adoption. The baby was legally adopted, and has lived with her adopted parents since then. Earlier this year, the parents got married and decided they want their daughter back. The took the case to court, and the high court ruled in favour of the adoptive parents, but the supreme court overturned that and granted custody back to the birth parents.
Personally, I think this decision is appalling, and when you out your child up for adoption, you have to accept that they're someone else's child now. Apparently, the adoption agency were late in getting a form signed, and the Irish constitution is ancient, and only recognises the 'natural' parents as having legal rights.
What do you think?

ETA: You guys rock, I got 6 comments already and I was totally expecting all these smart-ass answers (which I am totally still expecting, this is TQC ya know) but those are all good ideas!

First year of university and I'm living with three girls in university housing. Three of us are best friends and get along swimmingly, and then comes the housemate of death. She and I were friends at the beginning of a year, but she has NEVER gotten along with the other two (she refuses to be friends with anyone who isn't like her). So anyway, she has become a problem including stealing food, treating the girls like dirt, spraying this nasty Febreze I'm allergic to and a bunch of other stuff. Now, we're all big girls and should be able to handle this on our own, but she refuses and so we've complained to our dorm advisor who will sit us down and probably tell us not to be babies. But, during the first week, a pair of her sunglasses broke while I was wearing them (the pin fell out or something) and she said it was fine and not to worry about because she didn't like them. NOW, of course, since there is tension, she wants me to pay her back. Furthermore, I owe her 10 bucks for a pack of smokes, but the amount of my food she has eaten and alcohol she has stolen exceeds far past that $10.
Do I pay her back? Is it the bigger thing to do? Or do I say fuck it and tell her no?
Ever had a shitty housemate? What do we do?!
EDIT: THANKS. ANSWERED.
I've already taken it apart as much as I can and dried out everything visible, but it's not turning on.
Is there any hope? Any suggestions?

Alternately, would a bank teller look at me like I'm crazy if I said I needed to make a withdrawal from my account but had no idea how to do so?

1) Do you own a cat or dog?
1a) If yes, is it spayed or neutered?
2) Do you support spay and neutering programs?
3) Would you adopt from a shelter or buy from a store?
4) Have you heard of TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release)?
ETA: I wanted to thank each and every one of you -- you are all awesome. I love that so many of you support spay and neuter!
TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) for those who are curious, is a special trap is set up to catch ferals. Once a feral is safely in the cage, they are then brought to the vet/shelter/humane society, where the animals is tagged, vaccinated, and spayed/neutered. Once they recover, they are released back where they originally were caught. This helps control the population growth of strays and feral animals.
If you enjoy pretzels, what's your favorite kind? Does the shape matter to you? It matters to me. I especially like the giant rods or the ones that are small and traditionally shaped because you can break them in interesting ways with your tongue as you eat. It's entertainment baby.
