When I first got my laptop in March, it was quiet and perfect. Within the past month, the fan has started making this awful noise. It's not really grinding, but it is nowhere near as nice and quiet as it was. How can I fix this?

If you had to pick a Cusack sibling to spend the rest of your days with, would you pick John or Joan? Why?
John, hands down. Joan annoys me to no end...plus...Lloyd Dobler!

Can you give me the titles of some of your favorite creepy but non-gory movie?

Your boss has a cliffhanger booger. Do you tell them, or no?
I'd tell them, but try to be discreet about it.

Do you admire Sir Tommy Bahama?

i am in the middle of signing up for classes for next semester and i'm stuck between two options for my abnormal psych class.

option 1:
pros: really cool prof, grades on a curve
cons: in the middle of the day so it will kind of fuck me up at work, although prof is cool he is also pretty difficult and only 93%+ is an A

option 2:
pros: night class, easy easy easy prof
cons: some people think she is kind of boring but i'm really into psychology so this might not be an issue

which one should i take?

Ok TQC, I'm stumped.

I have a 4lb pork loin defrosting for dinner tonight, and haven't the foggiest how I should prepare it. I normally do it as a whole roast, or slice it, pound out the slices and stuff it, but tonight I'm looking for lighter fare. I love to cook , and am rather good at it so it doesn't have to be an idiot proof recipe ;) I have a grill, regular gas oven, and a convection oven at my disposal. It's 114 degrees out, so I'm disinclined to go with a heavy meat and potato recipe if possible. I have Whole Foods, and several regular markets near by to get ingredients.

Dinner is for 6 adults. I have 6 hours till it needs to be on the table.

How should I prepare it, and what should I serve with it?

I have this kitten here who's the sweetest thing, except that her claws are too sharp. Even if she just lightly walks across my feet/legs/arms, she tears my skin. How would I go about trimming her nails? Or, is she too young (she's about 11-12 weeks) to do that? What would I use? I used to trim my rat's nails with a normal nail trimmer (for people) but would that hurt the cat? :/ Halp!

Greetings Lovely TQC'ers,
Could you help me identify the song that starts at around the 0:32  mark of this trailer for the movie "An Education?"  My google-fu has failed me. 
It looks and sounds like Beth Rowley singing a lovely torchey song with lyrics like, "You've got me wrapped around your little finger...", "If this is love, it's everything I hoped it would be..." & "When we kiss it's as if..."

Okay so this morning I was putting on my makeup and i guess there was some sort of clog in my foundation bottle and it ended up spraying all over my cream colored shower curtain. I quickly took it down and sprayed Shout on it and threw it in the washer. I just pulled it out and it's still ALL there. You can't even tell i washed it.

What will get the stain out???? I really don't want to have to buy a new shower curtain.

What are your plans for tonight?

I'm pretty sure my brother is a hipster (he was a film major, worships at the feet of Michel Gandry, thinks Ayn Rand and Nabokov's Lolita are the height of literature, believes that tight ripped up jeans and a tight shirt with a saying on it and brightly colored Converse sneakers are the height of fashion, brews his own beer, is a self-proclaimed pseudo-vegetarian, and goes on periodic silent retreats with Buddhist groups).

I'm attempting to make an effort to understand him better, but he still drives me mad. What is the best way to try to understand a hipster/hipster culture, especially for someone comes from outside that hipster culture?

About a year ago, I used to catch the train home from work every day, and on a fairly regular basis a boy would catch it with me, and get off at my stop. I was far too shy to ever talk to him, but he was pretty cute, and I guess it was one of the highlights of my day, lol.

Fast forward to today, I was waiting in the car for my mother at the supermarket, and who should walk past but train boy. Obviously he lives in my area, but that's the first time I've seen him since I stopped working.

THEN, I get home, peruse an unnamed online dating site, AND WHO SHOULD I SEE BUT TRAIN BOY!!
This is a huge, obvious, blatant sign from the universe that we r ment 2 b, y/y? Should I ~contact~ him online? Tell him that I used to catch the train with him? I know this sounds trivial, but my Creep-O-Meter is useless, help me not be completely creepy.

Have you ever gotten on the same commute cycle with strangers and kind of formed a silent (or not-silent, if you're not as painfully shy as me) companionship with them? I do it all the time. It's probably fairly one-sided but I like seeing them every day and I like to think they enjoy seeing me too.

If you heard your neighbors yelling at their baby to STFU on a daily basis would you do anything about it?

I hear my neighbor doing that multiple times a day and I feel bad for the kid but don't know if it's something worth reporting them over or not. I mean can they get in trouble for yelling at their baby? Sorry if this is stupid.

If you had an 8 year old child who had an average maturity and sense of responsibility for his/her age, would you trust them with an iPod Touch or some other expensive electronic item?

ETA: I'm wondering because my 8 year old cousin has an iPod Touch, given to him by his mother, that he recently lost, but he found it.

Laptop Screen Size [Aug. 1st, 2009|07:30 pm]
The Question Club

[chocokid]
I am going to buy a MacBook Pro before the end of the month, and I have been doing a lot of research online as far as reviews are concerned, but I am looking for some potentially personal experience with any laptops.

I do not know whether I want to buy the 13" or 15" one. I do graphic design and so I would most likely appreciate the larger screen when working in Photoshop, Illustrator, etc, however the 13" one is identical to the 15" one in every way possible, except that it is smaller, weighs 1 lb less, and is $200 cheaper. So, essentially, the extra 2 inches is $200 more.

So, does anyone have any experience with working in graphic design-related programs on either a 13" or 15" screen? Share and explain! Which one should I buy?

I can afford either, however I am always trying to save money.
If it changes anything, I already have a 20" desktop, and the laptop would be for school and times when I am not at home, but have the need/opportunity to work on graphic design stuffs.


tl;dr

Should I buy a 13" or 15" laptop for my graphic design-related work (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc)? Both the 13" and 15" are the same, except the 15" is bigger, weighs 1 lb more, and is $200 more. Personal experiences? Thoughts?


Thanks! :)

if you buy fresh meat (specifically chicken), how long after your purchase date to you expect to have before it goes bad?

i bought a 7 pound package of chicken on tuesday and the use-by date was thursday and i'm trying to decide if it's worth taking back. we only used a pound or two, although my mum noted it smelled a bit off when she was cooking that bit on friday.

eta: i don't want to take it back because it was bad after the use-by date, i want to take it back because the use-by date was unreasonably soon and it wasn't labelled as having a close use-by date. we also spend $18 on it and now can't use any of it.

eta2: k, it's my own fault. carry on.

So you know that thing that dogs do when you scratch a spot on them that makes them kick their foot like crazy? Well for my dog it used to just be this one spot on his back, but now it seems like just petting him with the slightest pressure just about anywhere seems to make his foot go crazy.

Is this something to be concerned about? He doesn't seem to be in pain or anything, it's just so strange!

So, the Stanley Cup is coming to my city this Friday.

I live basically where they parade for it will start (I can look out my window and see it easily). This means that I fear that day will be quite difficult for me to get to/from work due to traffic (mostly from). Should I take the day off work unpaid so I can just hibernate all day and/or watch the festivities out my window, or should I just go to work and deal with the ridic traffic on my way home because I don't give a fuck about hockey?

Dear Psychologists of TQC,

I am almost positive I have some sort of social disorder, for real. I know every other person on the Internet is a self-diagnosed Aspie, but I seriously have SOMETHING very, very wrong with me. I am not able to relate to or even interact with other humans and it's really affecting my life because I'm afraid of even being in the vicinity of people who might try to talk to me.

My problem is that every time I've gone to a therapist they've fed me lines about how "normal" I am and about how people want to be my friend but are intimidated by me (which I don't see is possible since I approach everyone submissively with tail between my legs).

Does this make me just a self-important bad person in general? How do I find a therapist who will actually listen to me? Am I just deluding myself into thinking that there's something wrong with me because I'm such a horrible person I need to find some excuse as to why I can't stand humanity?

I can understand if you would be disinclined to give me serious answers, but honestly, I suck.

I have a problem.

My iPod nano (one of these) has been acting up (the wheel isn't working properly, not charging as well as it used to, etc), and I can't stand having just 4 gigs anymore its irritating having to take off music/books.  I was thinking of getting the newer generation of nano, but I'm unsure as to whether I should get it now, when I'm sure I have money for it, or wait until Christmas when there will probably be a newer model. TQC, WHAT DO I DO?!
Also to be considered: I like the current nano model and I'm not sure if I will like/afford the newer model.

It's 11:15pm and the rear neighbours are playing a really loud game of Marco Polo, getting more and more loud as they continue to drink. This has been going on for quite sometime. I put my kids to bed at 9 and shut all the windows so they could sleep, hoping the sound of the central air would cover them but no. I don't want to be all "MY SNOWFLAKES ARE TRYING TO SLEEP"...but...they are still awake after 2 hours and I can't be the only one who is annoyed. I KNOW it's a Saturday, I KNOW it's a long weekend and it may not be too late but is there any polite way I could request them to tone it down or should I leave it be? I don't want to be someone who expects other people to accommodate my kids which is making me think I shouldn't say anything.

I am an extreme cheapskate and will use the free online form provided by my prepaid vendor, in order to avoid the five cent cost of sending the text from my phone. Also, because I have ginormous thumbs and little patience. The form only allows 110 characters.

I thank thee kindly.

I sent her half a dozen messages, she phoned me to ask what the hell is going on. (She's waiting tables at a diner right now. Things are slow, but they'll get busier when the Paul McCartney crowd wanders in, and then when the bars close.)
