How do I install Windows 95 on Oracle VM VirtualBox?   Everything goes fine up until I get a screen saying "please wait while setup initializes" and then it just hangs.  Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? 

ETA: Found a tutorial on Youtube that explained everything, and I've got it up and running now.   Thanks anyway!!

Where can one find a tombstone online for a reasonable price (somewhere between $200 and $300)? For over 20 years my mom has dreamed of putting up a tombstone for her sister but everywhere she's looked is like $500+ which she cannot afford.

I am learning to sew and I'm definitely a beginner. French seams are my current nemesis. They're fun, but I'm worried that my dress is going to be off-kilter 'cause I've had to unpick the seams on one shoulder so often that the fabric frayed pretty badly.

What is your main hobby and what related skill are you currently working to master?

What are some good ways to develop a sense of fashion? I'd love to but I honestly cannot tell the difference between cute and frumpy nor do I know what goes with what when where or why.

What are good Wii games to play with 2 (or more) people? We just beat Super Mario Bros and would like a new game or two to check out!

squeeze or eat

I am now seriously pondering which is better, should I squeeze this grape fruit for a fresh juice but I somehow feel a bit too of waste, so would it be better to eat the whole thing? Which is better and tell me the reason why.

Does the weather have a noticeable effect on your mood?

I get extremely moody/ragey and easily overwhelmed in the summer. The extreme heat (110 degrees F and over) does not agree with me.

What do you think? Poor taste or people grasping at straws?

I saw two crows mating in a tree on my walk to work this morning. Seems like a creepy omen. What sort of evil is about to come down on me? I really think Ive had my bad karma quota for the decade already.

Because I just watched the movie last night for some strange reason....

If you were an actor/actress, would you have taken a role in The Human Centipede? (Or the sequel) Why/why not?

Cats and dogs

I have the world's most wonderful male (neutered) cat. He's about 5 years old and has claws. My SO wants to buy a puppy. How to I get them to like each other without having to deal with blood and fur everywhere? I live in a travel trailer because of my SO's work so putting them in separate rooms is not really an option.

Would you ever date an adult virgin? Does their gender matter? What about their reasoning (religion, "waiting for marriage", lack of interest or lack of other's interest in them, etc...)?

ETA: By the issue of gender I don't mean orientation but rather do you think it's more acceptable for someone of one gender to be a virgin than another.

home decor & furniture

posted by: miss_october in ask_me_anything

For those of you who are married or are living with a SO. Who has the most control over how your home is decorated? Do your tastes ever clash?

I'm single, but I'm curious about this.

ETA: I don't just mean artwork/decorations, but also the style and colors of furniture,etc.

help

I know I shouldn't be impatient with my children. But I find myself repeating things to them what seems to be a million times. I am trying to teach my 3 1/2 year old his numbers and alphabet. But I get impatient and I try not to show the impatience with him. How long does it take to teach a kid their numbers? Am I starting to early or should I have started months ago? I don't know. I want him to be ready for kindergarten. I tend to get frustrated and impatient to easily. I am wondering if I should put him into preschool and have them try to teach him? Yet I don't really have the money and I don't know if I could get help paying for it from somewhere. any ideas on how to teach him his numbers and what not to get him ready for school?  I just need some advice/help.

Trans-Queer-Fem TL;DR

Jun. 19th, 2012 | 08:37 pm
posted by: joospjos in ask_me_anything

How do you think feminist groups should handle the blurring definition of who is a woman? (not only Queer-feminist movements but every group that focuses primarily on equality between men and women/Women's rights).

Is it inevitable that all feminist groups must deal with trans/queer-issues to some degree?


Two stories for inspiration: Collapse )

I had no involvement in either of the examples, I heard of them through the "other woman" who identifies as a Queer-feminist but is more interested in women's rights rather than gender fluidity.

I know some of you are going to read this question and think I'm the biggest idiot in the world but I'm willing to take that chance. I come from a long line of working class people. No one in my family has ever gone to college (a few vocational/trade schools, yes, but no fancy-pants colleges or universities).

My daughter graduated from high school this month and has applied to a couple of different universities near here. We had to send her transcripts after graduation (which was June 1st) so not having yet received any acceptance letters is not that unusual (from what I've been told by other parents).

My question is - I know they will send out an acceptance letter if she gets in but do they also send a rejection letter if she doesn't? On TV and in the movies, they show people getting "sorry we can't accept you at this time" letters but I didn't know if colleges actually do this or if it was just for dramatic effect.

So, what say you, AMA? Will she get a letter either way?
