So I'm looking to get myself a laptop. I'm looking at getting one through dell.ca (yeah yeah, I can hear the snide remarks about Dells from here...but I've never had a problem with Dells, and I like them.) Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here has ever gotten a laptop from dell.ca and got it on their monthly payment plan. I just want to know, basically, what the process was once you made your application for financing through them and if you had any issues with them.

Thanks in advance!

have you ever been rejected from a rating community? which one? for what reasons?

have you ever scammed a restaurant for free food? this boy i liked in high school told me that he used to call pizza places and say that he ordered pizza and it had some ingredient that he was allergic to on it and that he was so hungry because it took forever that he didn't call to get another one, and they'd send him a new one, supposedly. i'm not sure if i believe that--it seems a bit far fetched, especially since they could go back and see what time he supposedly called, where it was delivered to etc etc etc. if you have, how'd you get around all the questions?

1. What is the GENERIC NAME/FLAVOR OF the type of syrup Americans commonly get in American grocery stores (e.g. it's not called "maple syrup")? Golden? Karo? Birch?

Maybe it DOES have some Maple flavoring (as some imitation recipes seem to imply for certain brands)? Maybe it varies with vanilla, maple and other flavorings?

EDIT: 1B. What is it called in your country?

Part of the problem is that in other countries, "pancake syrup" may refer to a completely different type of syrup, like maple, for example. I'm looking for a globally recognized name.

Example ingredients (from Hungry Man brand): SYRUP (CORN SYRUP, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP); WATER; CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF: SALT; CELLULOSE GUM; NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR; SORBIC ACID, SODIUM BENZOATE AND SULFUR DIOXIDE (PRESERVATIVES); CARAMEL COLOR; SODIUM CITRATE.

Example homemade recipe ingredients: [Not sure if this is the same! Is it?] 1 cup sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup corn syrup, 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon vanilla

All of the "American syrup" brands share the same basic ingredients. They don't specify what flavoring. Vanilla corn syrup, perhaps?

2. What good books and other sources are there for how different animals experience pain? I'm looking for credibly scientific sources written by authoritative authors, not random hippy save-the-animals sources.

It's crazy how some animals can tolerate pain so much better than us. Most Greenland Sharks (they swim in the cold arctic waters under ice) have this one parasite (copepods) that burrows into its eye and the Greenland Sharks don't even seem to mind.

My house backs up to an apartment complex. My housemates and I have noticed there are at least 4 dogs within said complex that are left outside at night, which results in them barking at each other for hours on end. I have no idea where the dogs are because I cannot see them from over my back fence but we definitely hear them. This goes on at all hours but it's most annoying at 2am when I have a migraine. The Mr. has taken to going outside and yelling, "Take your dog inside or at least make it STFU!"

Can I call the police with a complaint about this without knowing the exact locations of these dogs? I can't direct them to a specific house or apartment so I'm not sure they'll care.

If given enough information, can a person have complete understanding without the benefit of experience?

Let's say you are a scientist who has spent your entire life learning about the world from a black and white room via a black and white television monitor. You specialized in the neurophysiology of vision and acquired all the physical information there is to obtain about what goes on when everyone else sees a firetruck, or the sky, and uses terms like red or blue. You even understand which wavelength combinations from the sky stimulates the retina.  What will happen when you are released from your black and white room and see the sky for the first time? Will you learn anything new about the color blue, or will your vast knowledge have already prepared you for this experience?

We have a contest going on in my office to earn the Friday before Labor day off to get a 4-day weekend (yay!). We also have a giant dry-erase board to use to track our progress/see where we are with the contest. We have to earn a certain number of points in the next 4 weeks.

How should I decorate this board?!?!?

As an example - We had the same contest for the 4th of July weekend. On the bottom of the board, I drew little people in chairs and on blankets on some grass. Every time someone earned points, I would draw fireworks with the point amount written in the middle of the explosion. So, it looked like the little people were watching a fireworks show. And by the end, the board was covered in a colorful display of fireworks. What the hell do I do for Labor Day?

I'm attempting to make a video in Windows Movie Media which unfortunately isn't working on my laptop. So I'm working on transfering the movie files from my laptop to another computer. I have a 4 GB USB stick and over 407 GB of movies. I was able to transfer the movies from the computer I'm attempting to transfer them back onto to my laptop with no issue. Now some of the movies won't transfer? How do I fix it?

Also I have Windows on my laptop but I can't see the movie files on the Windows side. All of the Movie files I'm looking to transfer are Windows Movie Maker files. So how would I see them on the Windows side so I don't have to transfer them if worse came to worse and they won't transfer?

One last thing, when I'm in Windows on my laptop the Movie Maker program won't work. A message saying the audio file needed isn't installed. Is there something I need to download from the internet to fix it?

Okay, TQC, I just called to follow up regarding a job interview I had on Thursday. I was completely nervous, getting little adrenaline rushes, all morning thinking about making the call. I had to leave a message for one of the guys, and I'm still all shaky. Somehow I didn't get quite as nervous during the interview.

I also get horrible stage fright before public performances.

It's totally counterproductive to get as nervous as I do.

1) Hay TQC. My ex just told me that back before he knew me, he fucked one of my best friends and it went on for about 3 months. He said he wasn't proud of it because he doesn't find her attractive in the least. I have no real reason to be upset over this, obviously, but it's BOTHERING THE SHIT OUT OF ME.

There's a vein on my right ankle that's sticking out a lot and it tingles. What could cause that, or is it just something that happens randomly for no real reason?
Is there something I can do to make it stop? (veins creep me out, as in I'm actually nauseous just from looking at it)

Dear TQC

I'm hoping that there's some kind of weather oracle/meteorologist lurking in the comm...

According to the surf/weather forecast here the sea off the northern coast of Cornwall UK is going to be *hammered* on Sunday and Monday with swells of 14.5 - 16 ft and winds of 19-21 mph (usually the swell is not that big - biggest I've noticed is 8ft). The effect of the wind is actually big enough to reach all the way to the North-East of England as well (I checked Tynemouth).

Where's the wind/swell coming from suddenly? Does anybody know of storms nearby the UK to cause this, or is it some really far-off effect of tropical storm Edouard?



Never mind. The weather has decided to change and the forecast is a lot less impressive now. :(

Poll #1235734 Travel crap.

So my friends are leaving me for a week while in the UK and I'm about to book my hostel (PalmersLodge) where I'll stay for 2 days, how much should I pay?

Should I pay $34.09 a night for a 19 bed Female dorm.
9(32.1%)
Pay $40.49 a night for a 4 bed mix dorm.
17(60.7%)
Other- see comment.
2(7.1%)


ETA: I should probably mention that I am spending a week in London beforehand. And after my little 4 day jaunt will be spending another week there. And I do plan on doing as the Romans do and drinking. A lot. ALSO- I will be in Straford to see Hamlet. And after our jaunt in the UK we're going to the rest of Euorpe. I suck, I should have mentioned this.

So this week leaves me with 4 days I want to get the hell out of London for. Where do I go TQC? What are places I must see?

And as a non travel related question that has been inspired by my sandwich:

What is something you make/eat that most people think is disgusting.

Now, I mean, yay, because it's worth about 5,000 bucks now. Next year I turn 18, which is when I'm allowed to sell it(by my mom's rules). However, I have no idea how to go about doing that, and neither does she.

2. In another community we are doing a "favorite things" swap, where we send the person we are matched up with a package of our favorite things. $2 bills are one of my favorite things, I always get so excited when I get one in my change. Would it be weird to include one in the package I send? I feel like it would, but I'm not sure.

For those who've taken it, was Calculus 3 or Calculus 4 more fun? And why?

If it matters, I love trig, integrating by parts, inverse trig substitution for integrals, differential equations, and proofs.

Calculus 3 emphasizes the study of infinite sequences and series including power series. Topics include plane analytic geometry, graphing in polar coordinates, and an introduction to vectors. Prerequisite: Calculus 2.

Calculus 4
extends the concepts of calculus to vector-valued functions and functions of several variables. Partial derivatives are included. Prerequisite: Calculus 2.

i'm designing a website for my dad's business, and we can't come up with a domain name. the company is american garage door and we're located in las vegas. americangaragedoor.com, americangarage.com, and agd.com are already taken.

i was thinking either agdlv.com or americangaragelv.com, but i wanted to see if the creative minds of tqc could come up with something better. any suggestions?

[music |Vivaldi - Summer]

Why is it that for the two weeks my family was preparing for my uncle's funeral, I didn't cry beyond a few minutes after I found out he was dead, but now, after his funeral, I CAN'T STOP FUCKING CRYING? Aren't funerals supposed to bring closure? Why does it feel like someone just tore my heart out?

Why is my boyfriend bugging me to hang out with his obnoxious friends? Why doesn't he understand that if I go, I'll probably puncture my ear drums with a knife so that I don't have to listen to them argue about post World War II oil revenues? Why doesn't he get that I just want to sit here and listen to Vivaldi and try not to cry?

I want to bake something tonight, to try to get my mind off my uncle. Should I make chocolate chip cookies, Oreo cookies, brownies, focaccia bread, or something else?

Anyway, I wonder - is there something similar to this for albums? I'm looking through google but not really finding what I'm looking for. If any of you are familiar with something, please pass it on. :) 



Also - my friend is trying to describe to me some blog of a  "fat girl who wears the applique sweaters and tights." I guess she takes finds these sweaters and takes pictures with them on? I'm not really clear on it. I guess she's(my friend) been searching and searching but is obv searching the wrong thing cause she can't find it.

Anyway your help in either matter is appreciated.

Oh TQC, masters of fridgidation! Is my meat still delicious?

Around St Patrick's Day (mid-March) I bought some corned beef hoping to cook it soon. This didn't happen, so after a few days, we put it in the freezer. About three weeks ago, we pulled it out of the freezer in order to cook it. Again, it didn't happen.

So, now I'm wondering can it be re-frozen? Is the meat dead? Will I ever get my pudding if I don't have any meat!?

Hey TQC, it's your favorite "I post about my daycare job too much" person!

My last day of work was meant to be Friday. The kids go back to school Monday, so they're starting the after-school staff (you know, the frazzled high school seniors in hoodies with bags under their eyes?) then and wouldn't have really needed me. I told my bosses that I'd be available next week but I'd rather not work then because I move to school next Saturday and need a week to get my shit together. I was informed (not asked, informed) that I'll be working the toddler room Monday and Tuesday.

Okay. Toddlers are something the entire staff knows I hate, I have no qualms voicing how much I loathe kids under the age of 2, my bosses especially know how much I hate them. I don't know what teacher they're supposed to have with those kids, but on the first day of "school" they need to have that teacher in the room. I'm genuinely considering writing a note to my supervisor (yeah, the Hell supervisor who gets in my face and is generally dumb) and telling her something came up and I won't actually be able to work next week at all - some shit about moving half of my stuff to my dorm and staying in a friend's apartment, idk. Is this something reasonable, or should I suck it up and work?

My boyfriend usually cleans up after he's placed the food on the plates, but before he serves it. I find this sort of strange, because sometimes the food will get a bit cold.

I usually clean up after I'm done eating, though I try to clean up while I'm still cooking, to lighten the workload for after I'm done eating.

1a. I want a good, well written and captivating easy read series. I'd prefer it to be adult fiction (but I'll check out some young adult fiction), and not fantasy or horror. Do you have any recommendations? No Gossip Girl or Twilight, please.

1b. I've been looking at the Uglies/Pretties series. Is it any good?

2. I have a few prickly pears but I have NO idea what to use them for. Ideas?
