So I'm looking to get myself a laptop. I'm looking at getting one through (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 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 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. Am I being completely ridiculous? How can I stop being so pissed/confused over it? Why the fuck is it bothering me so much?

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. :(

All travel woes.

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.
Pay $40.49 a night for a 4 bed mix dorm.
Other- see comment.

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?

Deep in the hard-on of Texas

Texas spends $17 million a year - more than any other state - on abstinence-only sex education programs. The rate of Texas high school students having sexual intercourse, according to federal statistics, stands at 52.9%, compared with 47.8% nationally - Houston Chronicle

Texas' abstinence-only sex education programs don't seem to be having the desired result

What should Texas do now?

Spend another $17 million cause Lone Star kids can't learn the basics
If abstinence education leads to fucking, they should promote fucking and hope it makes the kids close their legs
Realize that abstinence-only education is a retarded pipe dream and get on board with sex education
Execute more criminals. It always makes them feel better afterwards
Spend that $17,000,000 on thousands of chastity belts. That'll keep the hymens intact

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.

Have you ever totally lost luggage? Like, the airline couldn't find the bag at all?

Did they reimburse you for it?

Did you have travel insurance?

What's the best way to find an actual person to talk to at the airline to ask about lost luggage?

TQC, also, why is my travel insurance company full of really incompetent people?

Do you have a Nintendo DS?

Do you use a R4DS card, or something similar?

How is that working out for you?  What was the overall cost of setup? How many games would you be able to hold?

Would it be a good idea for me to get one?  I'm bored with the games I have, and want lots more but don't want to spend a bunch of moolah.

New question: when was the last time you freaked out over something, and why?

If you have sex with your s/o even though you don't really feel like it at that moment, just because you want them to be happy, is that a lack of self-respect or a normal part of relationship give-and-take? What determines this?

What song(s) are you fucking sick of hearing on the radio? ...or are you one of those ~*~edgy~*~ people who refuses to listen to the radio in the first place?
That stupid Madonna/Justin Timberlake song. It makes me want to punch things.

What song(s) could you listen to on repeat for 30 years straight and never get sick of?
I cannot think of any

I'm out of cigarettes. Will you please go pick some up for me?

Oops! You tripped and fell flat on your face. No damage done, you're not hurt, and nobody saw you. Do you tell anybody?

Yes, for the sympathy.
Yes, for the help laughing it off.
Yes, because it still pissed me off.
No, it's no big deal.
No, how embarassing.

You did something nice for somebody. Other than that somebody, do you tell anybody else?

Yes. That's why I do nice things - for the accolades!
Yes, in order to inspire people to do the same.
Only if asked...
No, that's not why I do nice things.
I don't do nice things. *kicks puppy*

I saw the cover of the August issue of Cosmo when I was waiting in line at Safeway.  One of the headlines said "Why men cheat in August."  I didn't get a chance to pick it up...

Why do you think men cheat in August?  Srs and non-srs answers.
