Spore question

I have just been given a copy of Spore. Never played it, but I've heard the news stories about the Securom.
All I want is to be able to play it without having a secret program hogging all my available RAM when I'm using Photoshop or otherwise not playing the game.
How can I bypass this Securom thing and still be able to play the game?
I don't care about online content. It's okay if I can't download it.

How come most love triangles in books/movies always involve a chick choosing between two guys, and not the other way around?

When it's the reverse, the guy already has a girlfriend and it's the other girl pining over him whereas in the one-girl-two-guys love triangle it's a case of "who do I pick?"

Would you rather have an occupation that makes you happy or one that makes you feel fulfilled?

If you want to know more about my question:

I read somewhere that people with depression should find an occupation that makes you feel happy and fulfilled, but what if you can't find one that does both? do you settle for one feeling or find one that fills both. what if you cant find one that makes you feel both?

For those who may say what is the difference, well l'll give you an anecdote where this question stemmed from. I am thinking about going to fashion design school instead of going to law school. Althouhg fashion design makes me happy, it's just clothing. Being a lawyer may not be very fun for me but it would be fulfilling to help people and make a significant changes. Of course the decision is ultimately mine to make but l'd like to hear your answers to my question.

art history peoples please

I apologize in advance for the vague questions I'm going to ask. I'm searching for these two artists, but I can't remember their names u_u;. One of the artists is female, and she paints female figures that usually have very long necks, the facial features are exaggerated. The other one is also female and paints women with skull patterns on their faces and roses too, I think? x_x. I don't remember the nationality of these artists, but they're both contemporary. Can you help a sister out?

 You finally managed to fall asleep an hour ago after much tossing and turning for two hours, and you're exhausted. You wake up, and glance at the clock: you have to be at work in 5 hours, and if you get up you're not sure you'll be able to fall back asleep right away - but - you have to pee. It's not an insanely bad pee, but it's a dull pressure in your bladder. 

Do you get up to pee, or just go back to sleep?

For me, it would have to be one of my teachers at school. He's an American History teacher and he's just insanely funny. He can make fun of you in the nicest way possible and get you to laugh at yourself and your stupidity. I was in a foul mood a few minutes ago, and I was sitting on the computer in my school library when I saw that he was wandering around when he spotted me, came up, and started joshing me. He left and I didn't even realize that he had turned off my computer monitor. :D I'm okay now.

I got a Logitech headset+mic combo and it is now not working. Yesterday, it seemed like the USB port was loose, it would go back and forth between headset and my laptop speakers. Today, none of the USB ports work. I tried google and none of it helps.

I run windows 7, if that helps. And my USB ports aren't seeing that anything is there.

What can I do? I don't have the money for a new headset and I checked everything and it all seems to work just fine. What's wrong with my computer? Or is it the USB ports? Any little tricks you can think of to help?

Why does this girl I have on my facebook talk about her job all the time? She averages around 4 updates per day about the job, the money she makes, but curiously, I still have no clue what she does for a living. What do you think she really does?

I will probably defriend her in a couple of days, I thought we were going to be able to be good friends, but it turns out that she has some "interesting" ideas that I don't agree with.

Edit: We are more acquitance than friends. I met her when I was still new to the area, and haven't hanged out in the last two months or so.

TQC, you are so inspiring today.

So, yes, please someone explain some things.

Why is it that in recent times, I have seen people FROSTING brownies? I mean, this defies all reason and logic.

And how is it that you prefer to poo - do you really not care about pooing while someone is in the stall beside you? Do you just make all kinds of pooey noises around people with no qualms? Can you please pass on these super powers if you are indeed so free?

I had another question but I can not remember it. I hate that. How about some Pepperidge Farm cookies in your life today? How about that.

There is a crazy intersection I use everyday and it's made me wonder:

If a car who goes around a car waiting to making a left hand turn at a light hits a car coming from the opposite direction who is making a left hand turn, who's fault would it be? I know typically a person going straight at a green light has the right away, but does that apply if they were stuck behind a person trying to turn and drove around them?

If this is confusing, I can draw a shitty MS paint diagram. OKAY I DID IT.

Homegirl had some major plastic surgery is an "Ashlee Simpson nose job good" as opposed to a "Hedi Montag disastuh" kinda way. She's also no older than 21. It blew my mind (and possibly made me a little jealous) that she had changed her appearance so drastically in such a short amount of time. I just hope she stops at what she did now because it's working for her.

My friend offered me a ticket to an event this weekend and insisted that I not pay her for it. I told her I'd buy us dinner before the event and that I wouldn't take no for an answer.

The same friend is offering me two free tickets to a different event because it turns out a she has a final scheduled that day and can't move up the date. She knows I'm not doing well financially lately and will not let me pay her for them. She gave me the impression no one she knows but me would be interested in this event. I will likely be better off financially in a few months when a bunch of full-time gigs open up in my field.

I am thinking of offering to take her out to two different events/concerts/shows of her choice in the fall. Do you think that's reasonable? I don't want to take advantage of her.

So you thought losing your meth at work was bad...

UNIONTOWN, Pa. — The father of a kindergarten student is in jail after police say he went to his son’s school to retrieve four ounces of pot he had stashed in his son’s Elmo backpack. It all started when DAD, called the school to check if his son had arrived there safely. He then called back a second time and said he was on his way to retrieve something from his son’s backpack. The school administration became suspicious and decided to check inside the bag themselves, and there ...were a couple sacks of weed. By time DAD got to the school, police were already there waiting for him and he was arrested. Because the drugs were found at a school, DAD got a pretty high bail of $100,000.

I know this is last minute since uh, taxes have to be out tomorrow, but! If my parents pay for full-time college courses for me, but I basically support myself (rent, food, car) otherwise, is my mom allowed to claim me? She kind of surprised me by ~claiming me for school, and I ended up getting dicked over and owing money, and I don't think that's fair since I lived on my own Feb-Nov, and even though my boy and I moved in with her (to save her money), we pay for rent, food, utilities, etc. Some sites say yes until your child is 24 (I'm 20 btw), and some sites say no if your child supports themselves.

TLDR: If my parents pay for full-time college courses for me, but I support myself, can they claim me?

I really need your help. I know it's tl;dr but I'd really appreciate it.

My SO's cat is very old and dying. He's a sack of bones, shakes when he stands or sits up, is hungry but can't eat, we've discovered a few tumors, and the list just goes on. A minute ago he tried to jump off the chair for feeding time and face planted because he's so weak. My SO insists that he's not suffering and doesn't want to euthanize him because he can't afford it. If it were my cat I would have him put down, but obviously I can't do that.

I have this horrible feeling in my bones that it's coming any minute now and my SO is out with his friends because he doesn't think he can handle being here for it. I've been sobbing all day but I refuse to leave. My question is, how do I make him the most comfortable possible? Sometimes we find him sleeping in the bathroom in the dark, but he'll lay down wherever we put him. Should I let him be alone? Is that what would be best for him?

totally hypothetical,

you have a dream/nightmare that feels extremely vivid and real, about someone who you do know but don't see very often. And in the dream they are in danger, upset, and angry. Upon waking up you feel scared for them and want to check if they are okay. Would you track them down to ask if they are doing okay? would you pass it off as just wanting to catch up?

I had left my DS on the arm of the chair for a while and my boyfriend came up and picked it up.

The new stuff wasn't saved. It's gone. All of it. He didn't realize it was on at the time, and now I get to redo about two hours' worth of playing, including beating the previous gym leader.
