Non-American Engineering Schools: [Sep. 23rd, 2007|12:23 am]
The Question Club

[lordfeldo]
I would like the names of some schools outside of America which are known for their engineering department.


Specifically, I'm trying to study abroad and it's a bitch to find a semi-matching mechanical engineering curriculum. English is strongly preferred, but I can probably hobble together skills in any romance language over the summer.

Thanks.

2. Is it chilly right now where you are?

3. Will someone please take this package of Chips Deluxe away from me?

1. Janove Ottesen. I didn't know he had an english solo album (he's the singer of a Norwegian band, originally) and it's actually really good.
2. Omg, yes *Wraps self in blanket*

How interested are you, question answerers, in fashion in general? I mean, do you like to browse the mags in a 'pretty but not for me' sort of way, or do you covet the goods in the glossy spreads? Do you not give a crap, perhaps stick to classics, or try to be edgy and noncomformist? How much do you think you spend on clothes in a month, or a year if you don't shop that often. What is the bulk of your wardrobe? Do you think you have too many or too few clothes? Purger or stockpiler? Anything out there right now you want? Anything trends you hate?

In other words - your clothings, tell me about them!

what was the last really amazing/intense/interesting thing you were told?


my friend, who has worked a lot of the last few summers as an trek guide in Alaska, told me about how she has met people who met Chris McCandless before he died, and that she's traveled a few of the places he did, including one of the rivers he tried to cross but failed to after the glaciers melted before he died. she told me more than i think i could ever get out of the book that was written about him. it was really extraordinary.

2 - Who do/did you love that you don't/didn't tell enough?

3 - Who's someone everyone except you seems to love/lust after? You don't have to hate them, but just not see what the fuss is about.

~~~
1 - A friend, two teachers
2 - My Mum. I never used to say "I love you" back when she would. I don't know why, it embarrassed me I think. My brother always would. I only started saying it when we found out she was dying. =( I wish now that I'd said it more, because I can't say it at all now.

3 - Johnny Depp. He seems a cool guy, and he is quit good-looking, if not really my type. I wouldn't mind hanging out with him, but I've no desire to sleep with him. Who knows, maybe he's incredibly charismatic in real life.

The quote is probably easier than writing the whole explanation again...

* CLU boggles for search terms
[CLU] I'm failing in Google.
[CLU] I'm trying to find a way to alter javascript in a page after it's loaded in the local browser.
[CLU] Specifically, a site uses javascript for a form submission and limits a field by counting the character in the field, and I would just remove the check for field length.
[CLU] s
[haljordan] so the code doesnt execute until data has been entered?
[CLU] No.
[CLU] And it pops up a dialog box in the browser saying the field is over 500, and doesn't submit the form.

Is this possible, and how is it done? I tried searching for anything related, but I couldn't come up with search terms that gave me anything close to what I wanted. I'm not real interested in reading a textbook on Javascript, which wouldn't take much effort to find. :)

tqc, help me!

i just got a new phone. it has all sorts of amazing features, one of them being that it plays music! it also has a micro sd card slot. the manual says i need to order an accessories pack from verizon's website, which includes a micro sd card and a usb cable. it also says that the ONLY way to get music onto the phone from the computer is by using the cable, and that you must also use windows media player 10, and that it will only accept music that has been ripped from a cd.

currently, i use itunes and soulseek, and thus this is a problem. about 5% of my music was actually bought, and i don't want to have to burn the rest and then rip it into wmp, just to put it on my phone.

thus my question is: can i buy a different micro sd card, stick that into my laptop, then put it in my phone and have it work? would there be a problem with the drivers or anything?

Imagine your a mum, and your daughter (age 18) tells you shes been secretly going out with a man 12 years older for the last 3 years, how would you react?

I'll give you more background on my situation; I couldn't tell my mum before because our relationship was completely secret due to the fact it was a teacher/student thing for the first year. Then I just put off & off telling my mum until I'm at this stage, when I'm thinking of moving in with him. She'll hit the roof won't she? Would you?!

Dear TCQ,

I have recently been having tons of sex dreams, where I am having the time of my life banging away different men every night. And it's usually the result of something drastic happening in the dream. Last night, I dreamed that I was trying to escape the underground evil peeps that were trying to kill me, and when I escaped, I had sexy time to celebrate with the dude from prison break.

My flatmate and I were talking about maybe getting a dog at some point in the next few months. We live in a two storey house (all living areas are upstairs) with a good sized yard, with a large park right behind our house. Neither of us like small dogs, and we've got a standard size fence (about 3' high), so probably shouldn't get a large dog (though I do prefer them). I do have a five month old baby, so the breed will have to be one that is good with children. We'd also be getting one from the RSPCA shelter, so it probably won't be a puppy.

What sort of dog do you think would be a good one to look at getting? i had a boxer x mastiff before and LOVED him to death, I thought he was a great dog, but don't know if that was more his personality or his breed.

[vesleskjor]
Since college enrollment/picking courses has always confused the living hell out of me (I'm starting to think I'm just stupid!!), I have a rather dumb-sounding question.

1. I think I'd like to be an English teacher. In Germany. If there's even a market for them by the time I'd finish college. But what course of study would you choose to go about making this happen? Majoring in German? Or English? Take German as a minor? Double degree (though that would be a very desperate move on my part lol)?

2. Am I total bum for not having started college yet? I'm going to be 19 in two weeks and I graduated a year ago. I'm the only one of my friends who hasn't started yet. I feel like such a loser about that sometimes. :/

Did he not get my text?  What would you guys do?  Text him again?  (Isn't that a little weird though?)

3. Do you drink a lot of water throughout the day? (Like the daily recommended amount or more.)

4. Do you watch sports on TV?

5. Are you scared of bird flu?










1. YES. I tried to do some yesterday and gave up.
2. Probably. But I'll still watch it. On DVD. Or HBO.
3. Yes. With a few, infrequent exceptions, it's the only thing I drink. And I'm always thirsty.
4. Baseball, but only a few teams. And maybe some football. The Redskins and Giants are on now.
5. No. I think governmental agencies and the CDC try to freak the public out sometime. Especially if there is a vaccine involved. (I'm sure some big pharma is working on an avian flu vaccine right now that the gov't will push in the near future.)

[your_number1]

 I work at Wal-Mart in the bakery. I usually work 5:30 am to 2:30 pm. The first person comes in at 4:00 am. Well, she is on vacation so yesterday I had to come in at 4:00, and it wasn't on the schedule. Well, at Wal-Mart when you try to clock in before your scheduled time or on a day that you're not scheduled for, the time clock rejects you and you're not clocked in. Well, I called Management to clock me in, and I waited 10 minutes for someone to come, but they never did, so I just went and did my job. Everything has a time limit, and I wanted to get my work done. I was going to tell management later that I didn't clock in so I would still get paid. 

Well, at about 8:30 am, a member of Mangement (who has it in for me) came and told me to come with her. She told me that working off the clock is against company policy and is a serious offense and blah blah blah. IWell because it's my second write up... the first was for something equally absurd... I ended up with a "decision day" today (which means I take the day off - paid - and write a detailed paper about how I'm going to change my work habits and why I want to keep my job and things of that nature. Some punishment, huh? *rolls eyes*

I hate my job, with a passion. The hours suck, the people suck, the work sucks... the only reason I'm still working there is because I'm in debt and really need the money. My question is - how do I start this paper? She said she wanted it detailed, so should I write in there that I'm in huge debt and tell them about my problems? What can I say to make a statement? Does anyone want to write it for me? Any help would be appreciated!

is the third "i" in the second one pronounced?

in other words: if I am talking about "participle phrases," and someone else is talking about "participial phrases," are we not talking about the same thing? and if he is pronouncing the third "i," is he wrong?

He dropped the cat by about five hours ago, and it is still absolutely terrified. At first it hid away, now it's just lying on the stairs breathing very quickly. It will let me stroke it but it still seems really scared.
Is there anything I can do to reassure it?

CAKES [Sep. 23rd, 2007|08:59 pm]
The Question Club

[moon_roof]
So recently i threw a surprise party for my bffl. I asked another on of my friends whose hobby is cake making to make her a cake.
It was a good cake.. it just didn't look as good as i thought it would but thats beside the point.
She asked for 30 bucks for the cake. And i was kind of appalled. I thought she would just make it out of the kindness of her heart.
Then she comes to me the other day and is like.. "So am i ever going to get my money for that cake.. cause i'm super broke right now and i want money." ......
Not to mention she gave my bff 5 bucks for her b-day.
Then pulled out a 10 and a 20 at supper.....

So i know i have to pay her, i just have been busy and haven't got around to getting to the bank.
I do however think its totally unfair that i should be paying for the cake. I thought maybe 15-20 would have covered some of it at least.
What do you guys think? Am I being selfish? Or is she off her rocker?


and as a side note..
How many of you can drive standard flawlessly?

So I used to be really good friends with this girl in high school, but we drifted apart towards the end. I became really good friends with her younger brother, though. Every once in a while he will wander into my job to see how I am, and we'll talk for 10 or 15 minutes. Turns out my old buddy is heavily pregnant, and about to have her kid (this week!). In a way I'm happy for her, but in another I'm not. Her brother thinks she intentionally became pregnant to trap her boyfriend into a relationship he had wanted to end.

She was a really sweet girl when I knew her. I haven't talked to her in about 2 years (since we graduated), but I sort of want to send her something. What would be appropriate, if anything?

My grandma's cancer has spread and recently she's gotten really sick. She's lost over 30lbs this week and hasn't been able to eat. I saw her for the first time in a week today and I've never ever seen her looking so unwell, even when she was going through chemo and radiation. As cheesy as it is, she's my best friend. I've never had anyone close to me die before, so I have no idea what I should do, especially since I have time to see her before she goes.
