Final Cut

Help! I googled, I search the help index, I still can't find what's wrong.

I imported an mp3 into Final Cut to use as part of a report I'm doing. I hear the audio in the viewer, but when I put it in the canvas, it plays as a series of beeps and a red line appears above it. Why is this happening? How do I fix it so the audio plays?
YouTube gave me the answer.

What's the last thing that frustrated you to no end?

when was the last time you went on a diet?
did it work?  if it did, please tell me more about it.  i need to go on a diet.

does hydroxy cut work? 

if you don't feel like talking about your weight:

what was the last video game you bought?
how long ago did you buy it?
when was the last time you visited your local mall?

forgive me, i just felt like asking a lot of dumb questions. 
and well, of course i love to read your answers.

Are you a clumsy person? Or do you have accident-prone streaks?

While I have never been the picture of grace, I seem to have taken a turn towards clumsy as hell lately. Aside from padding every corner, sharp object and cat claw in my house, what can I do to keep from inevitably impaling myself on a pencil or some such mundane object?

Does it look like it's going to be a good week or a bad week for you?

Have you ever found something in your food that put you off of that type of food for a long time?

I used to eat those chicken nuggets shaped like dinosaurs all the time (because I'm 6, apparently), but then I got a bag that had bone chunks in the nuggets and now I just can't eat them.

Health insurance

Are there any health insurances that are affordable (like less than $200/month) and will accept a person with a pre-existing condition like diabetes for example?
I have searched and it seems there are insurances offered, but most don't take pre-existing conditions or don't cover prescription medications.
I've been on my father's insurance and it's about to expire, but I'm not fully employed at the moment and not in school. I just relocated to Texas, if anyone knows of anything particular to this state.

Until Obama possibly figures something out, are people in this country screwed once they get sick? It just seems that the only people that can't get health coverage are people who actually need it. No matter how much I've thought about this, it makes no sense.

I took an Aleve-D sinus and cold around 11pm last night because I had a cough and a really stuffy nose. It's 3:37am now and I just woke up with cramps and my eye is all puffy.

It's happened to me before and it's not terrible, but I should probably call my doctor and make an appointment with him, right?
Have any of you had an allergic reaction to a medicine like this?

juggling friends

Good morning (or whatever it may be for you) TQC.

Do you have Thequestionclub on your friends list? If not, do you just check it separately?

Do you check the individual communities you're in most of the time or do you usually read your Friends page?

I love reading this all the time, but I think I might need to remove it from my flist and just check it individually. I personally usually just read my flist (too lazy to browse most communities/people individually) but 90% of it is TQC sometimes. I usually only read 2 pages of my flist at a time, and since most of the entries are from TQC I end up missing things from my friends that I should probably know.

Silly question is silly but I'm curious what most of you do.

Inspired by this post.

Can anyone recommend a good eye serum/cream that will help with dark circles? I don't wear makeup so I can't use the stuff you put on under it. Also, I just went to the doctor and had a physical and blood work done and I'm fine. I was poking around in the drugstore, but there are way too many options.

I have a take home history midterm due today. I saved it to do until late last night. Unfortunately last night my internet failed me so I wasn't able to finish it. Do you think it would be better to get there late with the midterm, or to not show up and stick the midterm in his mailbox later today? He prefers that we don't email it to him.

When will I learn my lesson about procrastinating?

EDIT: I am unable to get it touch with my professor right now, and my class is in 30 minutes. I wouldn't be finished on time even if I hadn't wasted 2 seconds posting to TQC.

Help me out TQCers!  I know you know everything!

So...I just got married and am in the process of receiving the official certified copy.  It's supposed to be here in a week.  I recently got accepted to have a small piece published in a book, but they want me to sign a contract using my real name.  I'm not sure if I should use my maiden name or my new name, since I haven't got my certified marriage copy dealie yet. 

Do I use my maiden name or married name when I sign the contract?  Anyone have any idea?

Sooooo I just had a really weird experience at the doctor's office. So I had to get this *thing* (of a sensitive matter) done, so I went to this new doctor office and it was scary, etc. The doctor came in and was asking me first-visit type questions and was like, "Do you work for Company?!" I was like, "no, but my dad does, I'm just under their insurance."

This particular company has received US bailout $$$ and was under investigation for how they used this taxpayer $$$, and before the bailout, I guess a lot of investors lost money. Anyway the doctor basically went on this anti-Comany rant that was totally spiteful and he even threw in a "well why don't you tell you dad blahblahblah" before being all "Are your menstrual cycles regular?"

I mean, it kind of freaked me the fuck out. And was like, totally unprofessional. Can I complain? Who should I complain TO?

this is definitely bad_service, right?

diet pills

Have any of you ever tried diet pills? If so, what kind? What are your horror or success stories?

What do you think or know about the so-called "miracle" supplements of acai or hoodia?

Edited To Add-
I am well aware that the best way to lose weight is exercise and eating right. I have been doing this for the last three weeks, but I am not seeing results yet.. I just wanted to know if there was something that could give me a little boost while I was already doing good dieting strategies.

Dumb question, I know... but have you ever fallen and cut the back of your head and been ok?

My dad fell down the stairs this morning and hit his head. It was bleeding a bit but now it stopped. I really want him to get it checked out but he's stubborn as hell and says there's no money.

He'll be ok, right?



*Edit: Thanks guys, yea he was acting normal, cracking jokes like usual. He asked me if I can see his ideas, and telling me I should sue my mother for pushing him down the stairs for not getting her a new purse.. dumb jokes, but normal...
I guess his age is what worries me (62) but yeah, I'm sure he'll be fine.

I am trying to decide what to do and I am leaning towards the Enbrel because my I have pretty good insurance but I am not sure how much I will have to pay out of pocket, it costs about $3,000 a month without insurance. The methotrexate I would only have to pay like $10 a month out of pocket because it is relatively cheap even without insurance.

What would be the easiest way for someone in Russia to send me some money in the US? Right now, she's trying to make a Paypal account, but we're both not sure if that will work. She doesn't have a debit/credit card, just a bank account.

Would a wire transfer work? It would be so much easier if we didn't have to leave our homes though.

She wants me to buy her something and send it to her because the thing she wants won't ship to Russia.

For the rest of your life, you'll be outed as a child molester but as long as you don't do anything bad, it's just a bad reputation that might get in the way of some friendships, job interviews and the like

You'll have to dig up the body by yourself in the wee hours, open up the coffin, handle the corpse's fingers and remove the ring, which will most likely involve a lot of hard tugging and pulling. Or, if you're a dastardly sort, just cut the finger off. There's no risk of being caught. Just your own guilt at graverobbing and your squeamishness involving touching the dead

chainsaw question

Anyone here handy with a chainsaw? I have a question. I borrowed a nice new chainsaw with a 20" bar to cut up a huge fat limb that fell in my backyard. I've cut it up into 18 inch pieces, but now I want to split them lengthwise into firewood so I can burn them in a brushfire. I've tried a splitting maul, but I just can't seem to split them; my axe just bounces off. So my question is: Is it safe to use a chainsaw for splitting wood lengthwise? With the grain? The owner's manual has hundreds of safety warnings and talks about felling and limbing but it doesn't say anything about splitting.

Did you ever do this game in the playground where several people stand next to one wall and one person stands next to a wall facing them and then the one person has to chose a topic, lets say 'favourite colour' and then the other side have to all pick one unique answer each then one person acts as a messenger and has to tell the questioner all the answers in any order but not who they correspond to, then the messenger goes back to the other side and the questioner choses one at random, and then the person who it corresponds to and the one asking it have to run from wall to wall and spell out the word on letter at a time for instance P-U-R-P-L-E and the first one to finish is safe and the loser has to then become, or stay as the person asking the questions for the next round?

What was this game called? Please! Help? I'm going b-a-n-a-n-a-s.

EDIT: Solved! To all the non-believers the game is called 'Polo' and is handidly explained by 9 year old Christina on KidsOnTheNet.org

What are some good, really unique, sentimental gift ideas?  My Mom's 50th birthday is next month and I'm totally stumped on what to get her. Being that it's a milestone birthday I want it to be something she will cherish and value. I don't just want to get her something like an engraved piece of jewelry because that's too cliche for her. Google has failed in the unique department.

Dear TQC,

why is it that my friends can talk about having babies all the time and how they love being pregnant etc., but when I'm asked how many kids I want and say zero, I'm suddenly criticizing their life choices?

I think I'm just going to change my answer from a well thought out "never gonna happen" to a vague "i don't know" to avoid future dramz, y/y?

And, because now I have to know: have/ever planning on kids, tqc?

You're drinking some water. You put your glass down and your cat takes a few sips. Would you drink it?

If not, would you get new water in the same glass, or would you get new water in a new glass?
