I have tons of schoolwork to do but I have no desire to do it. It's taken me all day to do one paper because I just can't stand looking at it. What do you do when you have so much stuff to do, whether it be schoolwork, or whatever, but you just don't want to do it, and you just can't find the motivation? How do you force yourself to get horrible chores done?

1.) If you're on a diet, do you let other people know? Not like blatantly/randomly ie "Hey, what's up.. I'm on a diet." But more like, someone offers you a cookie, do you say, "Oh nope, I'm on a diet." Or, do you just keep it to yourself... and just say, "Oh no thank you."

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?

I have to make a speech tomorrow and I need "visual aids" for it. I'm totally not asking you guys to do my homework before those comments start.

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?

I'm having problems with my itunes. Recently I added a bunch of music, and afterwards it tried to "determine gapless playback information" or something. Unfortunately, it sometimes gets to certain songs (I don't know which or why these particular songs) and freezes up. So I deleted all the songs and re-added them, and canceled the "determining gapless playback information" thing before it could do many songs, and that works but every time I close the program and start it again, it starts up and always goes through a few songs before I can turn it off. If this keeps happening, it will eventually get to problem songs and freeze again (this has happened twice already).

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?

In honor of Kurt Vonnegut's passing (R.I.P.)...

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’.”

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?

So I'm pretty disappointed in myself. I haven't been to class since about mid-Feb and dropped 3 of my 4 classes last semester.

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?

Hi guys.  My choir at my university decided last night to make me our representative in the campus talent show which is tommorrow, lol. I've decided to sing "I am changing" from the Dreamgirls soundtrack. I'm sure I could find the instrumental online somewhere but since I'm currently sick, the original key is a little bit of a stretch for me. So my question is:

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.

[longlongwaytogo]
When I was about 7 years old, at school, we watched this educational but with a lot of fiction show called Zardip's Search for Healthy Wellness. I had such a crush on the guy who played Zardip (I did find out who the actor was, fairly recently). Zardip was a sort of semi-robot alien, from a planet where people were starting to fall apart. He was sent to Earth in the form of a blonde, 12 year old, human boy, and he made up his surname from a newspaper he randomly looked at. He joined this incredibly geeky health club made up of other kids, and they'd lecture about the food pyramid and so on. But there were in between, random bits of fun stuff, like he was sent to go shopping and walked off at superspeeds and everyone's just like 'wow that's weird' but didn't really seem to care much, and he comes back with a shopping trolley filled with junkfood. In another one one of the girls was having a sleepover and he wanted to go, but she needed his Dad's permission so he got his commander to pretend to be on the phone over the radio waves... and the girl at the sleepover lost one of her teeth, and put it under her pillow for the tooth fairy, and so he was like 'cool idea!' and started yanking out his own teeth...

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...

how the fuck do you get over being bitter?

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?
(please don't say sex or stupid little things, my husband is in a serious depression and it's horrible.)

what's the worst thing that's happened to you lately? how are you dealing with it?

what's the best thing that's happened to you?

Sylar's ability is an advanced form of intuition. He not only can rapidly work out how something operates but he can also improve it. This is how, I maintain, he's getting the other Emo·Sapiens' powers. Now, his ability has proven not to be limited to people with abilities; which is why he was such an effective watch maker & repairer while still Gabriel Gray. In fact, a rumor that's been making the rounds is that when he was in Bennet's little holiday resort...the reason he was able to appear to be dead was that he took that cockroach in his cell apart and worked out how it goes into hybernation.

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.

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?

Edit:

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.

Religion [Apr. 12th, 2007|12:56 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[kitlizzy]
How do I talk to a really religious friend of mine about a personal decision, when he is convinced I am making a terrible mistake with it because I do not participate in the value system of his faith?

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.)

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.

Do you automatically assume a person knows your sexual preference without you telling them?



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?

For all those who remember, I did manage to figure out how to get out of that room in Zelda. I need to be more observant.

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.

Having seen snippets of "Zardoz" at a convention, myself and some friends want to watch it in all its glorious suckitude.

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 getting all this spam and it's driving me crazy .. I'll go on a deleting spree, but 3 minutes later there are 50 more in the inbox!!

Is there anyway to stop it???

And if there's not ..

Some people say they make the spam go into a separate folder .. how do you do that? I tried to do it on my own, but apparently I'm pretty incompetent.

Thanks in advance for any help at all!

1. How do you motivate yourself to start writing a paper? I have the first 5 pages of my research paper for my Grammar & Stylistics class due tomorrow for peer review, and I still haven't started it. I just really don't want to write it, and it's unlike any paper I've ever written.

Hey guys,

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:


Hi Gary,

Please consider this e-mail my application for the Content and Information
Specialist position.

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.

I have no idea how to go about Googling this, and I also have a nasty suspicion it will make me look stupid in some way, but never mind :)

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!

Why do people get tattoos?

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?

What's the most useless advice you've ever been given?

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.

"error loading c:\windows\byvsrq.dll

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??

I've got a relatively old (and definitely shitty) toshiba satellite laptop which has 512 megs of ram, which are definitely not enough for it in any shape or form, especially while running firefox which, before I killed it just now, was taking up 250 megs on its own (i do use lots of tabs with lots of images loaded in some of them, but def. not worth 250 megs)

Anyway,
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)

p.s.
the model for this sucker is a75s206.

I saw "Walmart is not the only saving place" on the way to my boyfriend's house the other day and it quite amused myself and my friend in the car with me.

"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.

I know there are awesome church signs out there. Tell me about them!

DVD Backups [Apr. 12th, 2007|11:58 pm]
The Question Club
thequestionclub
[secret_voyeur]
I'm making legitimate DVD backups on my computer, and have run into a problem. See, when I initially backed up my DVDs, I did so by directly copying the files onto my HDD. Now, I'm stuck with a bunch of VOB files. I ultimately want to compress the VOB files to something more space-conscious, but everything I've found online that wasn't an out-and-out scam seems to require that I use the DVD itself, or at least an ISO of it. I don't have all of the DVDs available for my legitimate purposes, so I need to know:

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?

Google-fu has been of no help to me, nor have I found my answer by consulting Doom-9.
