Google is not quite pinpointing this one.
My current English teacher has told me something I was not previously aware of. That is that in literary analysis writing we must use the present tense. e.g. "Karl Marx writes that communism is awesome". However when we refer to historical events within the analysis we use past tense. e.g. "Lenin totally fucked up communism when he decided to revolt to it and to set up a government within it, proving he had someone read Marx to him."
Why, exactly, are we supposed to write literary analysis in the present tense?

Or to phrase it more directly, I wrote things written in the past as past tense and things I/the analysis I'm writing infer in the present.
e.g. Karl Marx wrote that communism would be awesome. This is not true in reality with groups larger than about 100.

Why is this "bad"?

I'm not looking for answers, just insight.
I have a "disability" and cannot stand for extended periods of time (or walk around for that matter) and because of this haven't worked since July. I'm not scared about re-entering the work force, so to speak, but my only experience is in retail and I need a desk job. Collapse )

I'm looking at kid's digital cameras, but most of them have pretty bad reviews. Does anyone here have any personal experiences or recommendations for a camera for a 2.5 year old? She's pretty good at using my camera, and hasn't dropped it yet, but never say never. My sister-in-law wants to buy it for her, so I'm not sure how much she wants to spend, but I'm guessing not a lot. Would a lower end regular camera be better than one aimed at kids do you think?

Are college kids stupid? Every single one of my college-age cousins (all under 21, mind you) have tons of pics on Facebook of them and their friends drinking...a lot. Their mothers are their FB friends so can obviously see everything. One of these cousins was in the paper today for DUI and underage drinking.

I really feel, as the older and somewhat wiser relative who was in college not too long ago, that I need to tell these kids to stop being stupid and reckless. Should I just keep my mouth shut and let the obvious consequences come to them? If it matters, all of these families (except one) are pretty self-righteous.

Mozilla seriously sucks.

Hey guys, I hate asking technology questions here, but this is my last resort.

I use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. For some reason, whenever I click on something that requires a new window to pop up, it doesn't work. Nothing pops up. I have turned the popup blocker off, reinstalled Firefox, restored it to default settings... nothing is working. I don't want ALL popups to be disabled, sometimes I need them!

Does anyone else have this problem? Maybe it's a security thing in my computer that I'm not aware of? Any advice would be appreciated, and again, sorry for posting this lame question here!

meat cooking tips

I appear to be inadvertently making myself sick, and I'm hoping some smart foodies might be able to help me.

When I go grocery shopping, sometimes I'll buy stir-fry cut meat, usually beef but sometimes pork. When I get home, I separate each package into two portions, which I seal in zip-loc bags and put in the freezer. When I want to use a portion, in the morning before I go to work I'll put it on a plate to thaw in the fridge. I pan fry it with frozen vegetables in canola oil, with a few dashes of seasoning salt (I season it while it's cooking). I always try my damnedest to make sure it's cooked all the way through (last night I waited until it actually started to singe), and it tastes fine, but every now and then I end up being sick the next morning (like today). This usually happens with beef, it's only happened once with pork (and never wth chicken but I can't afford chicken very often). I'm pretty sure that it's not a problem with beef in general, when I eat on my lunch break at work, it's usually either a burger from A&W (well-done), or a Cold Cut Combo from Subway, and I never have stomach problems from those.

Is there some sort of pre-cooking thing I can do that won't 1) take forever and 2) kill the flavour?

edit: Sorry, after several comments I just re-read my post and realized I wasn't clear on one important point. I am sensitive to undercooked meat. Like, if I order a burger from McDonald's, and I don't ask for it well done (or I ask for it well done but the lazy turds in the kitchen don't bother throwing the patty back on the grill for a half-minute), I will usually get sick. While some of the other things mentioned are possible factors, the reaction that I get (a really gross D-word) is identical to what happens if I have not-well-done McD's (for the record, the A&W at the airport where I work always does my burger right, but I haven't eaten at McD's in about 6 years).

Is everyone down about the holidays this year? It seems like every time there is a post about them, people just talk about how they want to skip them, aren't ready, hate Christmas, etc.

Personally, I LOVE the holidays. I love buying gifts for people, I love baking cookies, I love getting together with my family. We've had our tree up since Thanksgiving, I'm pretty sure I'm done with my shopping, and all of the gifts are wrapped and under the tree.

Is anyone else excited about and looking forward to the holidays?

I mentioned this not so long ago, I thought it might happen and it did.

I work in a clothing store in Scotland. Management were visiting the other day, we'll call her Mary. (I don't know her job title, but she's higher than the area manager) and once she had left our store manager, Elizabeth spoke to me.

Mary doesn't like my hair. (The underside is atomic pink. The top is dark brown. It's halfway down my back but when I'm at work, it's always neatly tied back.) Anyway, she basically said that Mary doesn't like it, mainly because it's so bright. She didn't directly say I was to lose it, she said 'It's up to you what you do about it, disguising it or whatever. I just thought I'd let you know what Mary said'

I've been there six months and Mary has met me before. My hair has always been like this but it hasn't been mentioned before. I don't know what I will do about it. I'm not keen on changing it.

Ever been in this postion?

But 8 minutes into the 9-12 minute recommendation, I noticed the bottom of the cookies starting to burn. I pulled them out and transferred them to another sheet.

I'm not planning on doing anything; I think it's a bit over-hyped and everywhere ends up being too packed and too expensive to have any fun.

What's been your most memorable New Year's Eve thus far? (In a good or bad way.)
The only New Year's Eve that I ever tried to make a big deal out of ended with me having to take my then-girlfriend home in a cab (hard to find and really expensive on NYE, due to all the traffic) because she had too much to drink and passed out in a park. Come midnight I think I was holding her hair back while she threw up...happy New Year, baby!

I was friends with this guy for like five years. He was like a brother to me. He and I got in a huge fight over nothing and haven't spoken in months. He got mad and told people things about me that weren't true and then those people turned on me and started being assholes. I removed him from my life, basically deleting him on every social networking thing ever (LJ, Facebook, twitter, etc), including his dickhead friends after one instance regarding them telling me that I can't have my damn birthday where I wanted to have it.
Anyway, I hadn't seen him in a LONG time and then we saw each other at a mutual friend's party last night. He kinda did this awkward shoulder pat thing to my boyfriend and ignored me all night. As the night continued, it became increasingly obvious that he and his friends were being passive-aggressive assholes and pulling high school level dramatic bullshit. I got really drunk and left. I was mad that I felt like I have officially lost my best friend. No chance that he's ever going to stop being stubborn and send me an email and say "Hey, I miss you, this is dumb".

(tl;dr: an argument with my former best friend has come to a peak and I'm super bummed about it)

Anyway, if you were in my situation and wanted to make up (because I seriously fucking miss him), how would you go about it? Would you just wait for him to simmer down some more? Would you tell him to go fuck himself? Would you just ignore it and cry about it for a long time? All of these options are going through my head. IDK, what would you do?

Hey TQC, hypothetical question.

Someone posts on TQC with a photo, asking people if they can identify the person in it. It's clearly taken without the person's knowledge, and the poster wishes to know their identity because they fell in love at first sight but couldn't muster the courage to ask them out.

How would you react if
(a) you didn't know the person

(b) you do know the person and
(bi) it's a relative of yours
(bii) it's a friend of yours
(biii) it's a coworker/classmate
(biv) it's someone you know and dislike
(bv) it's someone you really hate
(bvi) it's someone you used to know but now only keep in touch through facebook
(bvii) it's someone on your f-list
(bviii) it's someone on your f-list who you also know is a TQC member
(bix) it's you

Well? Obviously you don't have to answer all of those.

What does everyone think of Heroes this season? I watched the premiere but I hadn't been impressed with it at all. So I haven't seen any this season. But I'm bored, and my sister had some DVRed... So I decided to watch a few episodes. It isn't quite as bad as I thought, but wow, the directions they've been going the past two seasons.

To cut a long story short, bad relationship, he's moved on before I have.
To dye my hair bright red as a confidence boost at 11pm when i've been getting it this shade for months is a bad idea, yes or no?
(I've done red before, and was considering it hence why I have the packet.)

What web browser do you use? What do you like about it?

I've recently gotten rid of Firefox and now I'm switching between Google Chrome and Safari. I can't decide which I like better.

Have the internets ever made you utterly and completely dislike someone or something you thought as just okay before?

I had no real opinion on Taylor Swift until ONTD went nonstop on her over the last few days. Tiger, too. Actually no I still don't give a damn about him.

songs about leaving

What are some songs about leaving, especially ones that use imagery relating to cars, trains, buses, etc.? Off the top of my head, I can think of "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman, "Another White Dash" by Butterfly Boucher, and "LA Song" by Beth Hart.

There's an out-of-control bus heading for a crowd of people. Mostly everybody gets out of the way except 2 benches. On one bench, is George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Condaleeza Rice, tearing up a poster of Obama. On another bench is Lady Gaga, asleep. For reasons not stated in this poll, you can save one of these benches from certain doom. Who do you save?

Bench of 3 lives: Bush, Dick, Rice
Bench of 1 life: Gaga
