I like the Mac because it has iLife and I would use iMovie a lot (or some video editing software).
But the Dell has a better screen, a bit larger screen and is a Windows. (I have always used Windows but would be willing to switch to a Mac).
So which one would you recommend I buy?3 respuestasLaptops & Notebookshace 9 años
I hit my head, not (too hard but also not soft) yesterday while swimming. I was at the pool and was swimming underwater, since it was dirty I had my eyes closed. I hit my head while swimming to the wall and for a second was still before I went up. I didn't pass out or anything. Today, I feel sort of dizzy and have a mild headache. The back of my head also hurts. I am currently on vacation and won't be able to go to a doctor until next monday. What should I do? Should I worry? Can I go to the beach or should I just rest?3 respuestasInjurieshace 9 años
Why do people believe that taking away gun control will reduce the violence in Mexico. I may who knows, however, the reasoning I see for that is heavily flawed. People suggest that with more access to guns by the population they will be better equiped to defend themselves against the cartels. However, poiting a gun and shooting at these groups will not help the victims. If a family man, decides to shoot at the cartels if they attempt to hurt him or his family, they will promptly overwhelm the man and out of revenge kill him and his family. To make the point clear, if cops and SOLDIERS both whom would have better weapons and training are killed daily. What makes people think that normal citizens would fair much better?2 respuestasLaw Enforcement & Policehace 10 años
I don't like people criticizing Galen Marek without first looking at Luke Skywalker.
First of all he is a whiny brat in the movies. He also gets suspiciously too powerful in a very short amount of time training. It took Jedi years and years and years to be as good as they were, and yet in the prequels they are still weak. Unless they were Mace Windu, Yoda, Obi1, Anakin they all were relatively weak. Yet here comes along Luke Skywalker and in a short amount of training becomes strong enough to beat Darth Vader, who hunted down many Jedi, including Jedi Masters, what the heck. Luke Skywalker is OVERPOWERED. Even Anakin after 10 years of training in AOTC couldn't beat Jango Fett, much less your average Jedi, yet Luke beats Boba quite easily...along with everybody in Jabba's palace.
Then he is considered such a hero at the end of EP. VI even though he didn't do anything new. All he did was beat Vader, but Obi1 did it, Galen Marek did it. So what was the big deal?
Then comes the EU, who make him the strongest Jedi ever. Okay first of all, Luke Skywalker has the thickest plot armor of all the heroes ever. He literally cannot die. Since George Lucas wouldn't authorize a author to kill his most profitable player. Luke never had the slightest chance of dying in any of the stories. The books, comics just act as a fairy tell, telling the adventures of Luke. In other words Luke was just a character to make money out of. He could have gone to Stupid Planet and fought StupidMookslings just to make money.
In the prequels it was set up, so that your chances at survival were relative to your strength. Normal Jedi got killed because they were weaker, Mace Windu, Yoda, Obi1 weren't killed because they were strong and could protect themselves, (mostly until the end). Yet Luke even though he was probably just as strong as a normal Jedi with inferior skills , never had a chance of dying.
Then he becomes the strongest ever. And he is the best swordman and performs out of this world feats. With what? With holocrons!!! How can you reach your full potential without formal training? How can you become the best swordman ever, even though you started at the age of 19? Did Windu just suck that much, that after years and years of training he still was inferior to Luke? And Yoda( who had a high force potential and trained FOR 800 YEARS couldn't, at his best couldn't do, half the stuff Luke does in EU. EU just is a way to make money from a character, who can't die, who gains powers as the plot requires it and is overpowered.Luke Skywalker AT the end of the day he is a boring Immortal Hero.4 respuestasMovieshace 10 años

Ok, so I got bit by my cat two nights ago. It bled, I just stopped the bleeding before going to bed. My cat does not have the rabies vaccine and I am worried I might have contracted rabies. What is the proper protocol or what are the proper steps should I take from now on. Should I call the doctor and set up an appointment for tomorrow? Or go the er? What happens if I do to the doctor or the er? What will they do? Should I be worried?4 respuestasCatshace 10 años
My cat bit me last night. It made a long cut it bleed for about 10 minutes then I managed to stop it. I only covered it with Kleenex and i'm not sure I washed my hands before falling asleep. Today it was closed and it seems it is starting to heal but i never covered it with a bandaid. However, I have read that cat bites are very risky for infections. What should I do now? Put antibacterial? Bandaid? Peroxide?
Should I call the doctor? Is it dangerous?6 respuestasCatshace 10 años
My cat bit me last night. He doesn't have the rabies shot. Last time he got them was in 2009. I'm am freaking out because I read that it is 100% fatal after first simptoms appear. I don't know what to do. If I should wait till tomorrow to see the doctor or go to the er tonight. I don't know if my cat has rabies, but he bit me when he was in my lap, hard and I started bleeding. I didn't put alcohol or peroxide on the cut, I think I just watched my hands and went to bed. Can I have rabies or another infection from the cat. What should i do, go to the er right now or wait to the doctor tomorrow afternoon about 3 pm. I'm really scared. Please tell me whats the best thing to do. I rather not wait untill tomorrow if its a lot safer and less risky to go to the er now.6 respuestasCatshace 10 años
I found a German Rosetta Stone for $325 all five levels. Would you recommend I buy it since its cheap. $599 is normal price for all 5 levels of course I would never buy all 5 levels for that price I would buy 1-3 maybe. So do you think its worth it? I also saw that Instant Immersion was pretty cheap $40 or less. Would you recommend I take the first deal or stick with Instant Immersion? Thanks in advance.4 respuestasLanguageshace 10 años
I changed the water in the tank and replaced with water in a tank outside. Stupid me, because that water was very cold at around 40 F. I didn't realize that is was hurting my fish. Well I put the fish in and it was just floating I wondered what was wrong. Then like 2-3min later my sister told me it was the cold water. I quickly took out the fish and put it in warm water. I'm worried now though it slightly turned blue and its looks pretty sick. Will it die? Or will it be ok? I need to know.

Has it ever happened that you watch and old movie, perhaps the 80's, then you completely fall in love with the character, but know that they aren't the same now. It happened to me, I watched a movie and fell in love with the actress but was dissapointed when I looked her up and she was older and married (and had kids). However, I treasure her as a dream girl.3 respuestasMovieshace 1 década
