I've noticed this is becoming very popular online, and am just wondering if I'm the only one here that thinks its a little mean/rude.
EDIT: I thought it meant "yeah whatever" like a dummy and am no longer offended. ha.

I have a Panasonic SDR-H250 handycam, which records to .mpg format. When I record a video, it plays back fine. When I import the video to my local HDD, I can play it fine with ImageMixer 3 (which is what automatically does the importing, etc). However, if I then try to play that HDD copy with any other software (e.g. Windows Media Player, it stutters along with pauses every few seconds.
In the past I tried converting it to .wmv but still had the same problem. I'm guessing I need to do some sort of conversion (perhaps a reduction of quality?) but not sure exactly what. Does anyone have any advice?

How can I go traveling and where should I go?
-I am not a student. (So that rules out study abroad-type things, I guess)
-Money is not a huge issue. I would like to go the backpacking/hostel route, but airfare and whatnot won't be an issue.
-I'm fairly friendly and sociable, so traveling with strangers seems like my best bet. Where do I find people who want to do the same thing?
Have you ever done something like this? Experiences, please.

Background: The owners of the house I purchased had 2 cats that shed a lot, and I'm highly allergic to cats. I'm trying to do everything possible to remove as much of the cat allergens as possible. I plan to get an air purifier, but I'm not sure what else I can do.
What can I do to get rid of allergens in my home?
Have you had your air ducts cleaned? Did it seem to help? Is it worth it?
EDIT: The previous owners had cats and took the cats with them, so no more kitties running around. Also, we've already removed the carpet and pad, so that's all set.
When you go on vacation do you ever Google everything about it for weeks before you leave? Because I do and by the time I get there I know where everything is and I don't get lost because I've stared at maps and things non-stop.

My former roommate left some things in the apartment when he bailed two weeks early. I took the stuff and have it at my new place, and he e-mailed saying he wanted them back. I really have no need for any of it (and, you know, it isn't mine) so I agreed and he's supposed to pick them up today while he's in town.
It is 6:00 and he has yet to stop by or answer calls or texts.
What could have possibly happened?? I don't hate the guy so you don't need to make it a gruesome fate, but funny is encouraged.
you know those self checkout things that are everywhere now? they're pretty cool. but do you find it annoying and/or rude when people don't wait in the line just outside the self checkout area and instead start slowing encroaching on your machine when you start to pay?
i don't know why but it pisses me off, and i'm usually pretty chill about, well, everything. but when there is some medium height, middle aged dbag walking up, ready to pounce when i haven't even gotten my receipt out of the machine and put my wallet away i get mad.
Ok so I have never had a cat before in my life and now one of my roomies/bestie has one and I got home today and she was here (the cat) and then my other room mate went out and I was just in the shower when I realized I havent seen the cat since a little before my other roomie left. Now Iam freaking out because I cant find her.
Where do cats hide?
Do you think it got out?
Iam looking for her and now iam going to be late for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. Should I be a good friend and keep looking for the cat or should I get ready and go out already?
I didnt let her out but I would feel responsible if something happened to the cat.
My brain is congealing or some shit, because I have been staring at screens forever, and when that happens, I can't read or watch movies for entertainment either. I am broke-ish (getting paid Friday, trying to conserve money until then). Do you have a cure for that head/eye thing that happens when you stare at screens too long?
My friends want to hang out tonight, but I am so done with board games and kind of done with movies (I'd make an exception for His Girl Friday maybe) and I don't really want to spend money. What should we do? Hookers and Blow = 2much$.

"how do you know you're in love?"
"you just know."
HOW? How do you just know? What makes you just know? What if you're always skeptical of things and you DON'T just know?
i can see how people say "it's hard to explain what an orgasm is to someone who's never had one, but you just know." THAT is something that you do just know. but i don't see how you can just know if you're in love.

My best friend is leaving the country for a year or two. I'm organising a going away party for her and I want to do something special. I'm having everyone write little messages in a book to give to her, but I want to do more. I'm not sure how many people will be there, but probably no more than 20. It's probably just going to be in a pub, and I'm on quite a tight budget. If you were having a going away party, what would you like your friends to do for you?
We probably can't afford hookers and blow.
I was on the bus the other day and this bee was hanging on the window from the outside. He was washing his face and stuff (like a cat! they have tongues!) Then after like 20 blocks, he showed me his butt and flew away. Then this morning there was a similar bee on hanging out on my car. haha.

Which makes you feel sadder inside: seeing a picture of a murdered innocent person or seeing a picture of a murdered innocent kitty?
This has been bugging me for a long time. When you go to wal-mart, there's always this one old, crotchety person standing near the exits, waiting to check your receipt. It's like, I just spent $130 here, the alarms didn't go off, but you're going to stop me on my way out the door because I have a $1.28 item that was too big to bag up. This happened to us last night--we were already out the door, and the woman started yelling at us, then some random woman (not an employee) came out and told us the police were going to come after us because we didn't show her our receipt. Hah.
Do you actually stop for these people? What if there's a line?

Why did I just get overly upset over my dad giving me the "If you get a fish, you have to take care of it" talk? Does he think I'm incapable?

Are you socially awkward?
What was your wierdest dream?
What's was the best thing that happened to you today?
If you met someone online through a friend and for a year ina half you have been texting him, would you go meet him?
We talk every single day and we have yet to tire of one another.
He is the only person I feel like I can talk to about anything.
We always tell each other that if we didn't live 18 hours away by car we would be married by now (this was before he got his girlfriend).
I think I'm falling for him, but he has a girlfriend so I can't tell him this because it would be weird.
Sigh... I'm being teased by distance.
eta: It wouldn't be meeting him for romantic interest, course not, it would be to finally meet someone who has grown close to me ^^

A high school friend of mine puts a note on her facebook regarding scalping concert tickets. She claims that the woman she sold the tickets to is CRAZY for wanting a refund since the concert was canceled some time after the exchange. My friend originally bought the tickets for $40 & sold it to the woman for $80 (profiting off a sold-out concert). She's only willing to refund $40 since that's how much ticketmaster is willing to refund.
When someone points out that, hell, maybe she should do the morally right thing and just refund all $80, she argues that WTH!? Everyone knows that everyone else on craigslist are non-refunding assholes, so she should be so lucky to get at least half back!
So TQC, who's in the right? Should that buyer have known better about scalpers or should my friend cough up the cash?

Hey TQC, I'm looking to get a cheapo TV for my brother's college dorm. I've checked basic places, like Best Buy, WalMart, Sams Club, and BJs Wholesale...any other suggestions where I could find a cheap one?
