Can games that work normally on Windows (think WoW and similar games, I suppose) work on a Mac? I figure, even if I got a new PC, I'd get Vista anyways so it might just be a lose-lose situation since I've heard Vista doesn't run games very well.
Also... what kind of computers do you have? Mac? PC? Desktop? Laptop? What are some good things you like about whatever you have? Or the downsides?
The laptop I have now is only 3 years old, but I feel like computers now jumped about 10 years ahead of it. I really just need ideas. Thanks so much. :D
Storebought or homemade?
Spiked or plain?
If spiked, with what?
How much do you drink in a holiday season?

I've been searching around google for a good 45 minutes. Maybe I've missed something or I'm just not searching correctly?
Can anyone help?
I wasn't doing it right. Yay for many hours without sleep.
Have you ever added useful information to one?
If the card has an annual fee, is it charged once a year or every month?
My card said it has a $45 annual fee, but this $45 was billed on my first ever statement. Will it do this every month until I pay it off?
Someone please explain.
2. What book or movie had a really disappointing ending?
3. What's that called when someone has different colored eyes? Say, one blue and one green? Do you think that's pretty or no? ETA: Heterochromia! Thanks!
When should kids move out?
How would you go about this?
How old are you?
Male or Female?
If you didn't guess, I have recently become very fond of this guy I met through a friend (my best friend's uncle, long story, he is 3 years older than us), and she is okay with the relationship, FYI. Anyway, I have never dated anyone outside of high school, and that was only once, and then once in middle school, so I was interested in how the 'real world' dates. But feel free to answer no matter how old you are.
I hate it when people follow anything blindly, especially something like religion.
It was something my boyfriend emailed me.
It was this:
""GOD ALSO DETESTS RETARDS. DOWN SYNDROME, CEREBAL PALSY, THALIDOMIDES, DWARFISM, SPINA BIFIDA, AND OTHER CREATURES SPASTIC RETARDATIONS ARE REPULSIVE TO GOD. THE BIBLE STATES QUITE CLEARLY THAT THESE TWISTED LIMBLESS MONSTERS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED ANYWHERE NEAR A CHURCH, AS THEY ARE UNCLEAN AND REPULSIVE TO GOD. THEY ARE AN ABOMINATION. THEY HAVE MINDS OF SUCH A REPROBATE NATURE THAT THEY ARE GIVEN TO SEXUALLY GRATIFYING THEMSELVES IN PUBLIC, AND ARE NOTHING MORE THAN SLOBBERING STAMMERING ANIMALS. WHY SHOULD THEY GET THE BEST CARE? GET GRANTS TO BUILD RAMPS FOR THEM? WHEELCHAIRS? PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT? IF GOD DID NOT INTEND THEM TO WALK, LET THEM CRAWL LIKE THE SNAKES THEY ARE.
- “No man who has any blemish or defect may come near my altar: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed; no man with a crippled foot or hand, or who is hunchbacked or is a dwarf, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles. For he has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God. Because of his defect, he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary.” Leviticus 21:18-24"
This was only a tiny bit that I found on this site once I clicked the link.
So TQC, I ask this.. among so many other unasked questions.. Why are people so hateful against people they don't know? Why are they so stupid and narrow?
When did you last feel stupid?
It's 2AM, I'm hungry and don't know when I'll get to sleep. Should I eat something? What?
If they don't tell you, how do you feel?
I have great flisters (and others in TQC, for that matter) for this, as when they get something I send them, they post about it! :) I am so glad to know that things I sent made it where they were meant to on time and in one piece. I don't care if they thank me or whatever, I want to know that I do not have to go yell at my postal guys.
What do you enjoy reading when you're bored? I have had so much time on my hands right now since I quit my 'bad job' and now I don't know what to do. :O! Feel free to be broad with your answers - from websites, to books, to magazines, anything.
*Edited because I screwed up some wording.
I broke the bottom half of my retainer. My parents know this, and I'm going to the dentist on December 14th for impressions and later picking up a new half.
Unfortunately, I just discovered that not only did I break the bottom ones, I just may have lost the top set, when I was throwing away my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Because I'm an idiot.
To make this short, the above is not a story I can tell my parents, or I will get my ass beat. Hard. It sounds silly, but I'm worried enough that it's three in the morning and I can't get to sleep. I even seriously considered calling home sick, and just telling them that I threw it up and I never fished it out again. :P
Any excuses to justify me not having it? I'm planning on telling them immediately tomorrow. Funny and very serious answers always welcome.
I need a name for this portfolio; it's part of the final grade. But I can't think up a good name for it.
Question Club, what should I name this assortment of delightful fancies?
Why are there so many people who can only seem to say "HE'S A CRAZY OLD MAN" and never qualify what actually makes him crazy?
I am about 7,000 in debt and I guess I can do debt management and pay 278/month for 2.8 years or debt consolidation and pay 200/month for 30 months. I don't know what to do!!!!!!
Help me get out of debt, TQC!
3. Anyone else struggle with anxiety and/or depression?
(I work very hard to be happy everyday. Its especially hard this time of year. But some days, I just dont feel like trying.)
4. Do you think its okay to be sad? For some reason I always feel guilty.
5. Should I give in to the meloncholoy just for today, or fake optimism?
Why? Is it just so you get presents? Doesn't that make you feel squicky for celebrating a holiday that basically goes against your beliefs?
edited to fix my spelling mistake
If so, what did you think of it?
thanks for your help in advance...
which do you prefer?
Because of all the holiday good cheer going around in here, I ask: what is your favorite Christmas-themed movie?
Mine, in no particular order: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (especially the part when they cut the super-overcooked turkey), Miracle on 34th Street (the original), It's a Wonderful Life, and Die Hard (that's actually #1 on my list).
Honorable Mentions: Elf, Home Alone 1&2 (LOL, I got scared shitless in the second when Marv was electrocuted), A Christmas Story (RALPHIE!, especially when he goes to see Santa and is pushed down the slide), and Miracle on 34th Street (the remake with the cute little girl from Mrs. Doubtfire).
What's the best department store brand liquid foundation for its price? I was hoping to find something moderately-priced, but if you know of a foundation that's expensive but worth its weight in gold, that works too.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
I figure they'd probably start out by finding my ID, which has my parents' address on it, and going there, but I'd rather them call my boyfriend (since we live 3 hours away from our families and he'd be the first person to notice I was gone anyway and the closest to come get me...)
2.) Do you have an ICE number listed in your cell phone?
3.) Do you pronounce "genuine" as Jen-you-whine or Jen-you-win?
4.) Do you remember the show "Picture Pages" with Bill Cosby and Mortimer Ichabod Marker?
Do you have any anecdotal experience one way or the other?
U.S. people: what is your view of health care in our country? Do you feel that you get adequate, affordable health care?
Do you think people without insurance should have to pay full price for medical care?
How do you feel about universal health care?
Non-U.S. people: What is health care like in your country?
What is your perception of the American health care system?
**you work in a small business, their are 3 employees total and it's the manager who is doing the lying**
Using that term as loosley as possible of course. My friend recently described her relationship to her soon to be husband as "not the healthiest...but we're addicted to each other"
Personally I think its just an excuse do defend/dismiss the fact that he treats her like shit and she doesn't have the guts to leave. Somehow I think she explains it away to herself by tossing around the word and mentality of being addicted to a creep
I got a phone call from my coworker yesterday. When I went to look at the call log on my cell phone, it told me the call was placed February 4, 2008. How did I get a phone call from the future? Did my phone break the space-time continuum?
Do you think Kwanzaa is a made up holiday?

I used to do this all the time with a friends of mine. She'd go see a movie that OMG she absolutely LOOOOOOVED, and OMG I just haaaaaaaaad to go seeeeee it, OMG OMG it was so goooooooood, and she would not. shut. up. about this damn movie for like, a week. After a while I would be like "Know what? Fuck that movie, I don't want to see it," even if it was something I might have been interested in otherwise.
Now the same thing is happening to me with this Ron Paul guy. Not that I would have voted for him anyway, from what little I understand of him his policies don't match mine, but all this edgy subversive marketing with people writing "Google Ron Paul!" in bathroom stalls and shit make me really really want to never ever google him.
So, TQC, ever feel like that?

Have they ever come in handy when selecting classes?
I'm taking calculus next semester, and there's only one class offered at my school that I can take. I looked up the teacher on ratemyprofessors and apparently he's horrible :( Fortunately I have a math whiz friend who is taking the class with me, but I'm still scared! I suck at math.

4. What are you watching right now?
a.) Mac users
b.) Ron Paul supporters

i'm teaching second graders how to use adjective maps. instead of giving them the standard "house" and "dog" and "ball" kind of words, i want to give them some really interesting words they can be creative in describing. so far i have owl, lizard, and crown. what else do you think they would be capable of describing?

I will show him the auction once it is posted and we can watch it finish together. Sort of a “Father-Son bonding experience”. While I doubt this will keep him from ever smoking pot again, I think it will make him think twice before doing illegal

This one guy continually puts me down for my appearance. (Tattoos, sedately colored clothing, etc.) He gets away with it too because I'm only 23 and he's a 40-something lawyer man nominated to become a judge. I cannot STAND him.
2)do you tend to read the book before the movie or watch the movie before the book?
I read the book before the movie because when I was a kid, my mom wouldn't allow us to watch movies based on books unless we had read the book.
3)what are your obsessions?
mine are manga, casual games, and impending doom of all stripes.
For some inane reason i can't get the theme tune to Sharky and George out of my head
My mom is a speech therapist who works at an elementary school. One of her friends is a 2nd grade (possibly 3rd or 4th grade, actually, I don't remember) teacher and has asked that I come in and teach her kids a little Chinese.
I've agreed because:
a) I love kids
b) I'm a Chinese major
While I do know a little Chinese, I know nothing about teaching. Especially not elementary education.
SO TQC, help me. How do you teach children a foreign language?

This is probably one of the more ridiculous things asked on this community, but I need help deciding which house to buy. Information about the 3 choices is behind the cuts, plus there’s more info on my personal journal, but it’s probably way longer than anyone would want to read. I don’t really want to say the exact prices, so since #1 is the cheapest, I’ll call that “$X” with a down payment of “$Y”, and everything else in terms of X and Y.
Townhouse, 6 units per building, brand new (not yet built)
Down payment + closing costs: $Y
Maintenance fee: $160/month (landscaping, snow removal, leaf removal, garbage, exterior insurance)

Single-family home, brand new (not yet built)

That wasn't my worst, a few days after I got my license I drove into my bff's garage door. It was hilarious until her dad came home. :[
A: I watched Home Alone 2 on the movie channel and counted how many "pranks" Kevin McCallister pulled on the burglars that (a) they would not have survived through or (b) would have likely caused serious bodily injury

Chunky all the way.
<i>I get this all the time</i>
2. How do you answer that?
3. Isn't it more important to ask, "who is she/he"?
But the thing is, I'm doing really BAD. Like I really think I might lose my scholarship in my first semester. A few friends of mine go to a local technical school for LPN and they really love it.
I'm debating whether I should stay at this college and suffer or switch to this technical school and have it easier.
I checked into everything and my TOPS scholarship (a scholarship for LA students) would switch over to the technical school. Plus, I read that if you go to a technical school TOPS pays for summer sessions, which they don't if you go to an actual university.
The college is 40 mins away from my house and driving there 3 times a week really sucks, while the technical school is seriously 3 MINUTES away. So that would save a lot on gas and save my car haha.
I know it would be downgrading from a higher paying job to a lower, but I seriously don't think I can handle 3 more years of school at the university. The LPN program only takes 4 semesters, but my scholarship would pay for SUMMER also, so it would be alot shorter than at the university. I've also heard that if you get your LPN license and work a while, employers often pay for your schooling to advance yourself to an RN. I think it would be alot easier to become an RN after working as an LPN for a while. I would already know most things, so it wouldn't be that difficult.
This is a lot of rambling, but what does everyone think I should do? Any help AT ALL would be appreciated.
I don't know the author, but it's called Feed.

What made it funny?
I gave my sister wrinkle cream on her birthday. She turned 25. I know, its lame. But I thought it was funny. I also sign her up for wrinkle cream free samples. She told me the Olay definity that I sent her was the best moisturizer shes ever used. hahahaha
Have you ever given someone a used gift?
My sister gave my cousin a pair of her sweatpants for Christmas one year, because my cousin was always borrowing them for her.
This year I am giving my cousin a movie of hers that Ive had since April. Also Im giving my mom the new Harry Potter movie, but Im watching it first. Yes, I rule
Is this true?
Jessica Simpson is ready to strip naked in a Hollywood movie.
The blonde beauty wants to be taken seriously as an actress and believes baring all is the best way to earn the respect of Tinseltown, even if it goes against her family's wishes.
Frankly, that second sentence that I quoted, the second sentence of the story...is just too outrageous for me to take it seriously. I don't know anything about BANG Showbiz, tho.
What do you believe is the best way to earn the respect of Hollywood?
I think she should step it up a notch and throw poop at Pres. Bush...while naked...on camera.
I like the first one better for looks, but they aren't vegan and I don't know how waterproof they are or where they're made (they are sustainable I guess though). The second ones are uglier but I think they'd be okay with jeans or with a skirt and tights or something my style is kind of 'just put a bunch of ugly stuff together and call it an outfit' anyway. The second ones claim to be environmentally friendly and made with fair labor but I don't see any support for that other than on their website so idk.
Do you know anywhere else I could find comfy non-leather boots that aren't too hideous? No PVC pleather, either, since I think that shit takes like thousands of years to biodegrade. (Does it?) I would be okay with leather because it's generally more sustainable I guess and waterproof and lasts a long time and blah blah blah but the thought of dead animal skin on my feet just really grosses me out so I know I'd never wear them. SO SORRY 'BOUT THAT.
ETA: My style is like pseudo-hippie and vaguely indie but mostly just kind of ugly because I'm too lazy for fashion.
What is your favorite god/goddess, any religion (not for their names but for their stories)?

Will you give me suggestions for a good, non-boring date?
I created mine May 9, 2003. I was apparently a member of _cuterthanyou, add_me, bups, cheerleaders, community_promo, keep_it_pretty, ljdesigners, raptamakeout. Huh.
I'm trying to argue that a wedding dress ad with a clock like this in it is deliberately using Victorian imagery, but it seems repetitive to be like "because of the Victorian clock and Victorian furniture and the Victorian portrait it is clearly evoking the Victorian period." Yeah. I guess alternate descriptions for the Victorian furniture and portrait would be fine too.
Second, more fun question: To the non-males of TQC, if you didn't/couldn't wear the traditional white wedding dress in your wedding, what did/would you wear? Pictures please.
Edit: OR off-white, or cream, or ivory, or pale silver, or anything else that screams "I'M PRETENDING TO BE A VIRGIN!" to the world. This means you, __ria.
Have you ever seen the movie?
Have you ever dressed up as a character from the show? who?
An example, to help you understand my question.
I just (as in a minute or two ago) learned that it was called a 'tape measure'. I've been calling it was 'tape measurer' for all my life. I called a friend and she thought it was 'measurer', too. My mom and Wheel of Fortune taught me otherwise.
I am very upset about this, my whole life has been a sham.
