2.) For the majority of your friends, is diet/weight/excersise a touchy subject? One that you usually avoid talking about. ie, "Wow, I gained so much weight." "Wow, I need to go on a diet." "I'm having a fat day." etc.
Do you watch who you make these comments to?
Thanks in advance!
I absolutely adore Carmen.
My speech is on the origins of the New York accent. So it's hard to come up with specific visuals on something that's about language. At first I was thinking of making little signs for each group of people and what part of the accent is attributed to them, but some of them were the same, so that seems kin of stupid.
What in the world could I use as a visual here? I'm stumped! I probably should have choose something else knowing I need a visual, but I figured I'd think of something.
Bonus question: Since it's 3:40 in the morning now, I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna have time to wash my hair in the morning. How do I make it less dirty looking without actually washing it?

3) Are there any topics that most people think is strange or uninteresting, but is really interesting to you?

2. What is the difference between an apartment and a condo? I see signs for condos, and they look like regular apartment buildings to me.
3. When filling out forms, why is there usually a choice for both single and divorced? Why does it matter if people were once married if they are not anymore?
What is your celebrity prediction for the year?
So my question is, do any of you know a way to turn of "determining gapless playback information" so it doesn't do it automatically?
What is your favorite quote OR book by Kurt Vonnegut?
My favorite quote comes from Slaughter House V:
“When a Tralfamadorian sees a corpse, all he thinks is that the dead person is in a bad condition in that particular moment, but that the same person is just fine in plenty of other moments. Now, when I myself hear that somebody is dead, I simply shrug and say what the Tralfamadorians say about dead people, which is ‘So it goes’.”
If not, we can still be friends, but this post really isn't intended for you.

Can you tell me why they are your favorite character?
Do you have a favorite theme for that character?

2. If you were a woman in your mid-30s and some guy in his early twenties called you a MILF (even though you did not have kids), would you be upset? Or would you be flattered?
3. Mary is an attractive 54-year-old single woman. Her daughter, Kathy, is an attractive 35-year-old single woman. Is it weird that Mary and Kathy go out clubbing together and flirt with younger guys?
4. Lori is pregnant with Jake's child. Lori has the baby and the child looks nothing like Jake, and he becomes suspicious. In fact, Jake thinks the baby looks like his friend Geraldo! Jake insists on a paternity test and the test comes back that it is not Jake's baby, and Geraldo is a match. Lori swears she has never been with Geraldo. Is Lori automatically lying?
5. Paul and Pete are identical twin brothers. They are married to Sarah and Sandra (respectively), who are identical twin sisters. If Paul and Sarah, and Pete and Sandra, each have a child, will the children be identical?
6. How many people do you know named Mary, Kathy, Lori, Jake, Geraldo, Paul, Pete, Sandra, and Sarah?

Can you tell me a story? Can you comment with some funny stuff? Can you send me to a good YouTube video (SFW)?
Overall, can you amuse me?
Clearly, college just isn't for me.
I want it to be though.
I don't know whats wrong with me but I just don't have the motivation to go to school.
Has anyone else ever felt that way before?
How'd you stop feeling like that?
And if you didn't, how has life been for you without college?
I don't necessarily want to drop out, but seeing as how I'm on academic probation and not doing very well this semester, will they kick me out? How hard is it to go back if they do?
Anyone have any words of wisdom to share?
I need to get to the other side of a gate because she's decided I'm an idiot and that I should do things on my own. I've found a hole that presumably leads to the other side. But the hole is underwater and I can't figure out how to get underwater =\
Yeah, I'm an idiot. Someone tell me how to do it?

2- What would be included on/in your ultimate cake?
3- Do any numbers catch your eye during the day and if so, what is your reaction? (IE: You see the number '69' on a sign and giggle cuz you're a perv. :P)
4- What are you distracted from right now? Do you even care?
1- Just heard about it from a local pizza place. Wondering if they've lost their minds. :)
2- Right now... Lots of chocolate and strawberries. With spongecake maybe.
3- Anything that is similar to '1337' makes me laugh. Especially when it's in an old person's phone number who probably doesn't "get" it. :)
4- This, actually. I've had this update window open for half an hour, heh. Not too worried about being distracted away from LJ. :P
Would anyone be able to transpose an instrumental track 2 or maybe 3 half steps lower? I know that there is software out there that does it, but obviously I don't have it. Or even if you could get your hands on an instrumental that is lower to begin with, that would be great. I thank you all so much in advance.
*edit* buying the music from Musicnotes and having it transposed there isnt an option because I have noone to play piano for me.
I loved it. It was SO geeky and SO 80s/90s style... but... I really liked it. And I know it was shown in a lot of schools, that's what it was made for. But no one else can ever remember it.
Do you remember it?
What do you remember that other people NEVER remember? And describe it/explain it. Maybe some one else here *has* heard of it...
let's say you just went through a traumatic event that also made you very disappointed in yourself, then more bad things happened and your family totally let you down and you now know you have no family relationship with them... is there anything your spouse/SO could do to cheer you up? what?

I am passing an old phone onto a friend and I want to give it a clean before I do so.
Makes sense to me. It is one of the roach's more bizarre but interesting evolutionary adaptations.
Now, I went through all that to bring you over to this. What Sylar does with his ability is the long way around what Peter does naturally. However, Peter's (why does no one call him "Pete"?) limited to Emo·Sapiens with powers. He can't do anything really special beyond that; kinda doubt his skills as a nurse could be deemed super. So, how is it when he was over at Isaac's and using his precognitive abilities that he was able to finish that one painting?
I seem to recall him saying at the time he didn't have any artistic skills.
If you have one, what are your favorite games?
2) Are you ever jealous of things your significant other has accomplished?
3) If you wipe standing up, are you going to try it sitting down? If you're a sitter, will you try it standing up?
4) I'm doing the Super Cities Walk for MS on Sunday, how far should I walk? Should I do the 2km, 5km, or 10km. I'll be all by myself, and I really didn't raise many sponsors, which I feel pretty badly about, so I'm thinking about doing the 10km.
5) Are you involved in any causes like that? Any tips for getting sponsors next year?
6) Are hospitals/nursing homes in your area frequently quarantined? Locally, it seems to happen ALL the time. Most of the time they would allow next of kin to visit, which, in my mom's case, is me...but I really hated spending so much time there, then! Maybe it's because I live in Canada's Chemical Valley.
I do respect his commitment to, and belief in, his religion (evangelical Christian, i.e. Jesus is your personal savior, and folks who don't have a personal relationship with Jesus are doomed to hell and need saving). But I have no interest in belonging to it or the values it represents (I like and respect other cultures and religions, tyvm). It's perfectly fine if he believes that, but I don't have to. ;)
So, I don't know how to discuss with him the idea that maybe it's ok to accept other points of view, and just because my decision conflicts with what his faith believes is correct and proper, doesn't mean it's by definition a wrong decision.
(Yeah, I know, the hope of having a sensible discussion is pretty nil, but I was curious if anyone had anything helpful anyways.)
What if you talk to them on MSN every week, and you've known them for 10 years, but you've never actually spoken on the phone or face-to-face with the person?
2. what shows did you watch as a little tyke
I don't think there are any. I've been looking around but I can't seem to find any. If I don't find one I'm going to register for summer classes so I don't completely waste the summer.
2. My dad bought oatmeal at Sam's Club. Now we have 9 pounds of oatmeal, it's the Quaker Quick 1 Minute kind, I usually have 1/4 cup of it for breakfast. What are some relatively healthy things I could make with it?
I made some delicious Oatmeal Raisin Bar cookies, but they were packed full of sugar and fat.
2. Ladies, which women do you hold in high esteem or consider exemplary?

Why do they do that?
Do they think the contradiction is witty or something?
Now, I don't like avacado, and I *cannot* eat sushi-grade fish. (Bad experience with ceviche has warned me off all uncooked fish).
I LOVED the egg sushi I had today, and okay with the shrimp sushi.
What other kinds would you think I would like?
What's your favourite kind?
The reason I ask this is because last night during a conversation with a guy at work he mentioned something about his boyfriend and I said "Oh, you have a boyfriend?" I said this because I thought he was single, as he had never mentioned seeing anybody to me before. He took it as an insult and said "Hellooo! I've been out of the closet for over 5 years now!" Well, nobody told me, not that I would care. We usually just talk about movies, In all the years I've known him I've never once had any reason to think anything about who he likes to have sex with, heck, I don't think I've ever in my entire life said the words "I am a heterosexual male" out loud to another person, does that mean I'm a closet straight guy?
Have you ever been hypnotized/seen someone hypnotized? What's the funniest thing you've seen having to do with hypnosis?
2. What TQC members do you always recognise and remember from their icon, name or things they've said?
3. What's your biggest passion in life?
My friend wants to fly from Moscow to visit me in America. She'd probably fly into DC. But the cheapest price she can find is $1300. Is this a good price or a bad price? I don't understand how I can pay 500$ for a rountrip ticket to Germany, but it costs her $1300 to fly here. =/
[I don't; but some girls in my last class said if they see a girl who has messy handwriting, they lose respect for her.]
1 - What model do you own?
2 - Do you use it often/not often?
My camera is a Canon Powershot S3 IS. I don't use mine all the time. I only use it at social gatherings or when I feel the need to take a photo.

Now for some questions about glasses!
Do you wear them?
What for? Obviously to help you see, but are you longsighted, shortsighted, etc?
Show me what they look like? Prety please?
I just found out on Tuesday that I have to wear glasses all the time. I'm longsighted and astigmatic in both eyes but it's worse in my left than it is in my right. I don't have them yet though, because I have Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome and need a pink tint on them so I can read properly - even with the lenses. So I have to wait a few days for them.
Who plays MtG?
(And seriously, there is no question of whether or not I can pass this course. I should have dropped it but missed the deadline, and so I'm stuck with it.)
But is there one person that you know, that is totally insane, totally out of their mind, but you still talk to them? I'm talking about those people that are so out of their mind, that you can't even understand how they've walked the planet for as long as they have. Do you know anyone like that, that you just happen to know through friends or class or work? And everything about them is just hysterical? Please share :)
Would you darn his socks too?
My dog just stood up on her hind legs and opened the front door....That was kinda weird.

If you are, U R KEWL. WILL U PLZ ANSWER MY ?S?

So are you going to go see it?
Are you excited about this event?
We want to watch it as a double feature with another movie like this: a movie that stars at least one famous talented actor/actress in the lead role, was intended to be serious and good, and ended up being a blatantly bad film that makes you seriously questions what the hell they were thinking when they made it.
Difficulty: English language, in color, likely available on DVD or VHS from the local Blockbuster, live action not cartoon.
And don't say "Gigli". I already though of that. ;)
And don't just like to the IMDB Bottom 100 Movies Of All Time. I know about that list. I'm looking for personal recommendations.

I'm applying for a position within my company, and having a few doubts about the cover letter I've written. Could you please let me know what impression you get from it, and if there are any grammar issues, or any parts where it gets boring?
First, here's the email from our boss describing the position:
"The second opening is for a Content and Information Specialist (CIS). I'm especially excited to have this addition to the Communications Department.
The CIS will play an integral part in maintaining consistent information for our players across all mediums.
The CIS will also take over the template writing and revision duties from Harry. Harry will be focusing more on the backend of Kana to help us work more efficiently. The job description for CIS is attached."
Here's my cover letter:
Please consider this e-mail my application for the Content and Information
As you know, I am a writer, as well as a passionate "grammar hound." My ultimate career goal is to secure a position which involves as much writing and editing as possible.
From September 2005 to present, I have been taking night classes at BCIT to complete a Technical Writing Associate Certificate. Nothing makes me happier than writing, etymology, exploring vocabulary, editing grammar and spelling, and the almighty Microsoft Manual of Style.
Over the last year and 6 months I have completed Technical Writing courses including "Technical Editing and Grammar," "Writing for the Web," "Designing and Writing Online Help," and "Definitions, Instructions and Process Descriptions."
As for my writing accomplishments here at work; a few months ago, I wrote policy and procedure documents outlining cashier policy changes I'd suggested to Lawrence, and said documents were subsequently approved and implemented into the handbook.
I am also currently working on a Cheque FAQ document at Lawrence and Shen's request, in order to cover all the changes our cheque procedures have undergone due to our new Cheque Processor.
After reading the description of the position from your email, I'm confident that not only am I qualified to excel in this position, it almost exclusively involves the skills and knowledge I have been honing for the last year and a half. I would be absolutely thrilled for a shot at this position.
Thank you for your consideration, and please find my resume attached.
1)Does anyone know a good site for downloading television shows?
particularly wonderful departed shows like Freaks and geeks, and Dead like me???
please and thank you.
I was christened as a baby. I'm not very happy about this. Is the fact that I've been christened recorded anywhere, on any official documents about me? It's not on my birth certificate, obviously, or my passport (that I can see). Does the church and/or government have my name down somewhere as a Christian?
If so, is there anything I can do to have it removed?
Answered - thank you, everybody!
Or else about someone named Jenny?
My family is fostering a sweet Labrador named Jenny, and we're supposed to take pictures of her to put on the rescue website so people who might want to adopt her can see her, and I thought it'd be cool to make a video of her as well, and I need music. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
Why do people get piercings?
Is it really because they feel some kind of need to look different or get a memorial of someone/something, or is it more monkey see, monkey do?
For those of you with piercings and tattoos, do you think you'd still have gotten your piercings and tattoos if they weren't so accepted and commonplace nowadays?
Why does everyone love The Mountain Goats so much?

Something I've always wondered: When the speed limit changes are you required to modify your speed once you see the sign, once you reach it, or once you pass it?
Last year my roomie ad I were both close to bedridden with the flu. Just getting up to go to the bathroom was enough to make us dizzy, and actually going up and down stairs (we lived on the third floor) was entirely out of the question. We survived on our stockpile of microwavable stuff. When I told my mom how sick we were, she told me to make sure we emptied our trash every day (the thought being to get the germ-filled tissues out of our poorly-ventilated room). Problem was, the garbage room was in the basement. Not exactly helpful.
So, oh wise TQC... date ideas?
Edit: Date fixed. D:
the specified module cannot be found"
why do I keep getting this when starting up my laptop? And I keep getting popups (Internet Explorer popups even though Im using Firefox) continually. I used the full scan with Norton Anti Virius and it hasn't helped. I assume it has something to do with this error. Its my own fault, I tried to download s program from Limewire, ran it, and some stupid virus was released. Through Norton Ive gotten rid of the other error messages, its just this error now, and the pop ups.
Edit: and oh yeah, I know why the error is coming up, its because there was some sort of error beforehand about "byvsrq.dll" so I searched for it and deleted it. I assume this new error means that the file was required and I SHOULDNT have deleted it? I guess what question is..what do I do now and how is it related to the pop ups??
Reality and I don't mix so well.
If your dog has one of those nubbin tails... does s/he try to chase it?
Our accountant's dog will chase his tail for a good 5 minutes. My dog at home will give it a try but she's easily distracted and runs off to get a toy after about two rotations. My mom's dog has a nubbin tail, but he's bound and determined to catch that thing.
question 1: currently the task manager shows under Performance tab that 456 megs are being used. The processes tab (even with "show all processes from all users" being selected) doesn't show memory usage for processes that would compute to 456 megs. 2 process are using 11 megs, 3 are using between 5 and 9, two are using 4 megs, 2 using 2 megs, like 8 using 1 meg each, and a bunch using less than a meg.
so.... is the OS using the rest?! how do i check on this? any way to free up this memory without rebooting? this is really fscked up...
question 2: i've tried installing linux on this laptop a few times, but the laptop has messed up bios (for one - it doesn't flash-update. just shuts down the machine whenever i try to update the bios) and some other stuff, so that some linux installations fail during install (i think it was ubuntu that would shut down the machine while executing makedev every time), and some are just messed up after install, like unwilling to run the fans, overheating, and shutting down.
any suggestions for this piece of crap? (aside from throwing it out and getting something else, or just getting something else. unfortunately it's not an option at the moment)
the model for this sucker is a75s206.

"Remember, God has a big eraser" is one I really like. It sounds so... threatening almost. This church has amazing signs and I should really start writing the good ones down.
The biggest wtf one for me is "Where are you going? Why?" So damn invasive.

Is there any way to either
1. convert the VOB files to a DVD image for free, so that I can mount the image in an optical drive emulator to compress it that way, or
2. compress the VOB files directly for free, thus bypassing the whole image-creation thing?
