I will get a new notebook and will be able to play both Mass Effect and Dragon Age.
Which one to start with?
I am both keen on SW(i.e. space stuff) and elfs,dwarfs etc.

You're asking for a laptop yes?

If you want a powerful machine you're better off getting a custom built one since most branded stock machines aren't going to be as good as a standard desktop, unless of course you can afford Alienware. There are a bunch of good Taiwan-based companies who can do this for you.

If I wanted to express something like "You'll never love me, but I will always love you" but instead say it like "I'll never be yours but you will always be mine" or "You'll never be mine but I will always be yours", which of the latter two quotes expresses the original quote ("You'll never love me but...") correctly?

(am I making absolutely no sense yet? )

Obviously the second one "You'll never be mine but I will always be yours"

The first one looks like if the girl/guy is chasing you and you reject him/her and tell " You will always be my slave because you love me"

Is the brown stuff left at the bottom of a chocolate fountain still called chocolate after the entire piece of equipment is taken apart for cleaning?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I don't think I can begin to explain the sheer amount of bacteria that would be growing on that shit.

I don't know about bacteria being able to survive heat (other than salmonella which can survive at 170 degrees celsius), but that thing is constantly boiled to keep it from hardening through the day at 150 degrees Celsius. I almost lost 2-3 fingers trying to clean that thing for the past 2 days.

The thing is that the liquid chocolate solidifies almost immediately after the equipment is shut down due to dynamic equilibrium, and heck, it does become a huge baseball sized gunk within half an hour.

Hope that won't put you guys off from eating fondue at a buffet restaurant.

Er, shouldn't you switch off the power and unplug the thing before cleaning?

That is what I did! Otherwise I wouldn't find that baseball sized gunk at the bottom!

Is there any instrument (improvised or otherwise) which can help u scoop that gunk up? Sounds like you have one heck of a mess.

Think I could sell a dakimakura off online for $60? Unopened, part of omake from a discontinued, hard to find magazine issue. Its one sided, and official of course. The mag cost $40 and I dont want the daki, so I'm hoping to at least make the money back (which I think shouldnt be too hard, official dakis sell for over $80).

Well.. I don't know about an official, or real english term..

but, apparently, ( after a little bit of digging), its described as the 'underdog effect'

To quote the article I got it from

Quote:
Social psychologists have studied the underdog effect. Allison et. al (2008) defined this effect as the people's tendency to support or root for an entity that is perceived as attempting to accomplish a difficult task and is not expected to succeed against an advantaged opponent.
I haven't bothered checking the source myself, but it is sourced to a seemingly reputable academic paper, so I guess theres no reason to doubt its validity immediately.

Another paper I found on the subject (one of the first hits actually)

'The Appeal of the Underdog' (2007), which should immediately give results on google.

Does TinyPic count as an appropriate image-hosting website to post pictures here?

Fairly sure I've seen in used in the past here, so I'd say most likely it does, just remember to thumbnail when you have a number of images, or really large ones .

Is there any dormitory at your college? That can solve the travel issue.
