    Do you hold the door open for the people behind you?

    I usually do this in public places like schools or grocery stores that don't have automatic sliding doors, especially if I'm not in a hurry. It seems like a nice thing to do, rather than just let it slam in their face. I do this if I see the person coming up behind me and judge that they'll be...

    Dining Etiquette: How do you use your knife and fork?

    http://trenchant.org/daily/2002/8/12/ Which style do you use? I generally find myself using something more like the American style, but I don't switch hands several times like people say is often done... I generally just cut everything up when I start eating, and then put my knife down for...

    Were the 1990s a bad decade for American rock music?

    I mean, I've been thinking about it recently, and noticed that very little of the American rock music I listen to comes from the 1990s. There's a lot from the 1980s and 1970s, and a lot from the 2000s and later, but almost nothing from the 1990s, and I'm not sure why. The only thing I can think...

    http://www.elearnenglishlanguage.com/blog/english-mistakes/good-vs-well/ The reason it seems wrong is because the word "well" can be used as an adjective to mean "in good health," but in most cases "well" is an adverb. This particular instance is an exception to the rule you're trying to apply.

    Did you look at the link? Rule: When referring to health, always use well. Examples: I do not feel well today. You do not look well. The version I used was "I don't feel well," and it was in reference to a stomachache. Your criticism would only be valid if I were describing an emotional...

    No, that's not correct. You would have a point if I were referring to my emotional state. I was referring to feeling physically ill, and in that case "well" is acceptable. http://data.grammarbook.com/blog/adjectives-adverbs/good-v-well/

    Do you prefer Skype or Discord?

    I have Discord because a lot of people are using it these days, but I prefer Skype for the following reasons: 1. Discord requires me to remember a four digit number (that I don't get to pick) in addition to my username. I'm always forgetting to append it when telling people my Discord name. 2...

    I'm doing alright. I got all the way to Calculus II before getting burned out from school and needing a break. The math gets a lot tougher at that point. I'm sort of reconnecting with people, but not really feeling the same level of enthusiasm for ZD as I did when I was newer.

    Minna's Evolution (Pokemon RBY/FRLG-era fanfiction)

    Advice on Frontier issues and 4G laptops?

    I'm in a bad situation. We just signed a 2-year contract with Frontier because they offered a cheaper rate, but their problems are only getting worse. My 3G is slowly becoming my only lifeline to the Internet, and I'm not much of a smartphone person. Both of the major ISPs that used to serve...

    What do you think of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE?

    I've played this game recently, and it was very interesting. It feels a lot like a traditional JRPG, but it seems to require more complex strategies in order to beat. It's the game that tided me over until BoTW came out, actually. Rather than traditional protagonists on a quest, you actually...

    [Linux] What are your thoughts on SystemD?

    I wouldn't really consider myself experienced enough to make an informed decision. The only thing I know is that without much debate, most Linux distributions seem to have adopted it and made it increasingly difficult to avoid. Debian has a fork called Devuan over the issue. The main thing I've...

    How difficult is BoTW for you?

    I haven't seen a lot of conversation about the difficulty level of this game. So, I'm just wondering how tough it is for everyone else. For me, this game is extremely tough because I really only have significant experience with Zelda, but I've heard playing games like Skyrim or Dark Souls would...

    Example: Using traceroute to fix routing problems to websites that are still online.

    Since I just had to do this with ZD just now, I thought I should tell others how to do it, because it's a very useful skill to have. Especially if your Internet is with Frontier like mine is, as they have really lousy default routing due to their inexperience with serving a wider area. 1. Check...

    R.I.P. Wii U Basic Set - All Major Retailers in the U.S. Have Ditched Stock

    I personally like the Wii U, and I'm actually rather annoyed that people are so quick to pronounce it "dead" and a "failure." I've heard all this before with the Wii, and it was dead wrong. There's no need to interpret this as anything other than the deluxe model selling a lot more than the...

    What Email Provider Do You Prefer?

    I've recently started using Outlook.com's e-mail service, and I think it's the best one I've ever used. It actually seems a lot simpler and less cluttered than Gmail, but is also more powerful than Yahoo. I would say Yahoo and Outlook.com have the best e-mail service. Gmail is good if you have...

    Most Awkward Moment You Have Experienced?

    Well, when I was in Kindergarten, one time the teacher told us that if we didn't go to the bathroom before going to recess, then we couldn't ask to go during. I had to go during recess, but I didn't think I could ask to use the bathroom. So I tried to find an enclosed space, and eventually I...

    Are You Afraid Of Death?

    I think about Death quite frequently. I definitely want to prolong my life as long as possible, and try to avoid danger. But the truth is, I don't think death is what I'm most afraid of. I fear growing old, and losing my mental agility. To be alive and lose your sense of self, your identity...

    When You Fold Your Hands, Which Thumb is on Top?

    Even though I'm right-handed, my left thumb goes on top. In the psychological community, there's a theory as to the significance of this trait. I don't actually know if that's true, but it's interesting to think about nonetheless.

    Discourses in History

    I can definitely see it. I feel that often, history is misunderstood because people apply modern preconceptions to it and decide based on that, that people were barbaric or backwards. They only end up reaffirming the superiority of the modern view. This particular method of discussing history...
