• I need advice on weather I should Quit Smoking or not. (Please read the complete story before answering).?

    Best answer: Smoking is a drug. You are using the drug of nicotine to calm you down. My friends who smoked claimed the same thing. The problem is that you are still using a dangerous drug to handle stress as opposed to natural solutions like exercise, a good diet, being well rested, etc. I had one friend who smoked and got into crack cocaine.

The problem is that you are still using a dangerous drug to handle stress as opposed to natural solutions like exercise, a good diet, being well rested, etc. I had one friend who smoked and got into crack cocaine. He claimed it was easier to break the addiction to crack cocaine than cigarettes. I understand your position but most people get stressed like you, yet manage it without drugs/smoking. I would suggest looking for healthier alternatives to handle stress, but it would be understandable to turn to a smoke that you know works. It's going to be a test of will power while you look for healthier solutions. I am also surprised it took your parents finding your cigarettes to know you have been smoking. I can smell anyone who has smoked their first cigarette of the day from a mile away.

  • Windows XP Forever?

    Best answer: You can create a Virtual Machine on any Operating System and run any OS on the Virtual Machine. The disadvantage of a Virtual Machine is that it has to be allocated some of your physical machines resources, but is no problem if you have a very powerful rig with lots of memory.

  • Is it too sensitive to be hurt by someone not showing the same energy as you?

    Best answer: If you like someone, even as a friend, it can be normal to feel somewhat hurt if they don't feel the same way as you. The problem is sometimes people can feel the same way as you do but express it totally different. Some people are just not talkers unless you get them on a subject they are really passionate about.

The problem is sometimes people can feel the same way as you do but express it totally different. Some people are just not talkers unless you get them on a subject they are really passionate about. Some people can be lit up like the 4th of July on the inside, but their face doesn't come close to reflecting this. I have had friends like this and we were able to have some fun together, but my best friends have always matched my energy or had greater energy.

  • Did God use the "Big Bang" to create the universe?

    Best answer: If you are going to believe a God exists, then you would have to believe He was the force that created the Big Bang. It is far more likely the Big Bang event happened for natural reasons and a God would sort of violate the natural order that the rest of existence has to follow, which is from simple to complex over time.

  • Why do people feel the need to steal from others?

    Best answer: I suspect people steal because they either want the item or the cash from the sell of that item. I have seen both poor people steal and rich people steal, so I cannot say it's absolutely out of need. With the poor, I find the sense of entitlement occurs frequently. They feel they system has cheated them. For those who are not poor,... show more

  • Is it time to replace my computer?

    Best answer: If it is still fulfilling your needs I would just fix it. It may only need the dust blown out of the power supply, cpu heat sink, and the case in general since it sounds like a heat problem. Another cheap fix is if the cpu is causing the trip, you could get some software to read the cpu temps and if they are getting on the high side, it... show more

It may only need the dust blown out of the power supply, cpu heat sink, and the case in general since it sounds like a heat problem. Another cheap fix is if the cpu is causing the trip, you could get some software to read the cpu temps and if they are getting on the high side, it may be time to simply replace the thermal paste that gets hard over time and stops conducting heat as well. Even if it was the power supply (which I doubt) and new power supply is much cheaper than a new computer. That last 550 watt PS I bought was only $25 and it has been working for at least 8 years.

  • What to do if you hate working but, love volunteering?

    Best answer: I don't get the dirty sell out part but I understand not liking to work. For me it wasn't the working that bothered me but the politics of the workplace. I became self employed and it became easy to work 12 hour days because it was on my terms.

  • Liberals: Do you want me to pay more taxes than you as a CEO, when I worked two times harder than you to get here?

    Best answer: Liberals do not see money as a tool to be invested. They see it as greed to be stolen by force through our greedy government. Liberals believe in equal outcome though people will never be equal. To a Liberal, hard work is not to be rewarded but given away to those not willing to work as hard.

    Best answer: That is certainly a good idea but it cannot work due to the supply and demand problem. If the miner card was cheaper, that would certainly encourage them to buy the cheaper card for profitability, but because mining is so unpredictable the OEM's still would not produce enough mining cards and the miners will turn to the more expensive gaming cards. The reason gaming cards are so expensive is because companies will not beef up production for fear that the mining disappears and they are left with overstock. At the same time, manufactures realize they are alienating their loyal gamers who not only quite buying overpriced video cards but all of the accessories that go with building new gaming rigs.

    Best answer: It is normal for multiple instances of the browser to show up. Is your computer slow doing non-internet things? If not, then I suspect it's the web pages slowing your pc down. When looking at the task manager, look to see what percent your processor is running at *** well as how much memory is being used to identify if the cpu is maxed or the memory is maxed. If either one is close to max, see what processes are consuming the most cpu or memory and close it to see if you get a speed improvement. My guess is your pc may be outdated as web pages keep getting more complex with their advertisements and often bad code that is heavier on the pc resources than it needs to be.
