  2. What would be example of crude but effective fighting style?

1. Yes. Drill sargents need to break you into liquid teats, then build you up again like a true Marine.
2. Karate is a good choice if you don't wantt to use guns.

Why is mother "mama" in about every language?

Krav Maga. Not pretty, not fancy, but cold and effective.

Because they are the first sounds babies make.

It is a matter of linguistics and that "ma" is one of the first syllables a baby can pronounce. Babies come equipped to make every sound of every language on Earth. They listen and by the time they're 2 or 3, they've unwired all the sounds not in their native language.

In the English language, is there a term/label to differentiate between we as opposed to singular/plural you and we as opposed to they?

I'm not asking about how to differentiate the two in a sentence. I'm asking if there's a name for each usage.

We always means first person plural. There is no alternative meaning.

The only alternative meaning, and it's a rare one, is the royal "we".

No, I meant, say you're talking to person A.

You could say: We could go to the movie.
Meaning: You and person A.

You could also say:

We're going to see you later.
Meaning: You and some other person B.

I'm asking if there a term that differentiates the two usage.

It seems the answer is no.

No, English is particularly broken in the area of pronouns.

I'm seeing a whole lot of pictures linked to forums being hosted at imgur.com now. Is imgur the new cool place for picture hosting? Does it offer anything special over Photobucket and the older sites?

In general, imgur was designed for sharing images quickly and easily (whereas photobucket seems more inclined towards general image archiving, and even then it pales in comparison to simply using Dropbox or some other cloud storage service), whilst keeping out intrusive ads (mostly).
It's not as good for sharing larger images (it performs compression once an image hits 2MB, which imageshack doesn't do IIRC), but it's one of the best image sharers out there for general ease of use (you can also look at where an image originated from as well, URL-wise).

Question: Is there any difference between a game that is installed and the other that was just copied form another computer and saved in a folder? They are both working though but does it have any effect to the computer? Performance or anything?

I already had the idea about that but my concern is more of if I could play the game uninstalled, could that decrease the load on the processor?.

Hmmm.. example. I installed a game, it will make a folder right? Then I copied it and paste it somewhere else. I then uninstalled the original. I play the game using the copied folder. will it affect the game or the computer's process...

Well, it depends. If you use Windows, then yes, just like RRW said, you need to install the game. A very few games can run in their own folders (like fan games), but most commercial games need to be installed so that they're recorded in the registry. Otherwise the game won't run. The only games I ever seen and played that didn't need to be in the registry were very light and easy on the performance, so I don't know. But I know that any difference doesnt matter because you need to install any game that takes up a lot of performance anyway.

But if you use Mac, then you can copy and paste any app on another computer and it will work fine, no installation needed. So no, if you have a Mac

Please dont do this, it's going to break your game. And it won't run on the new computer. If you're using Windows.

You will need to reinstall the game on the new computer from the disc. Or edit the registry information in manually, but trust me when I say you dont wanna do that...
