    At McDonald's what's the difference between a quarter pounder with cheese and a standard cheeseburger? Is the cheeseburger just smaller?

    The Quarter Pounder is...a quarter of a pound. It's pretty much a oversized cheeseburger. Well, bigger than Mickey D's at least.

    Is it possible to save a gif onto a computer for viewing while offline, or does it need the internet to load and work? I bookmark gif urls anyway, but I was curious if it could work this way.

    You can right click and save the image to you computer. Then you can view it offline.

    I don't have a 3DS yet, but I'm getting one soon. Just curious... are they at all compatible with a standard DS/Lite/XL? As in, could I Poketransfer from Gen IV to Gen V using a DS lite and a 3DS?

    How should I ask it: 'which one would you prefer', or 'which one you would prefer?
    Some explanation as well would be the best

    Or how about 'which one DO you prefer?'. It would help if you said what it's for..

    Well, I assume you might not be a native English speaker, so:

    1. Which do you prefer, ______ or ______?

    2. Do you prefer _____, or ______?

    As for an explanation, my best explanation is just because English is weird and this is how we say it :P

    Ahhh... one of the great mysteries of life. There always seem to be groups formed at school, be it friend groups, gender groups or any other type you could think of. There's no explanation as to why.

    A smilar question is why do girls always travel in packs? No matter where they go they have to stick together. it makes no sense.

    Always watching. Always waiting. Never truly at peace in a realm of its own.

    Sounds like a middle school problem....that's how it was at my middle school. In high school, that will change, trust me.

    A better question would be why do they go to the bathroom in packs.

    It's really weird that the school would have a rule like that. What grade are you in? Maybe something happened in the past that made them have that rule.

    American schools do have uniforms. Just not all of them.

    If i say that i've been waiting for something, without any further time expression in addition, does it mean that i'm still waiting for it or that i have been waiting but now that thing has arrived?

    It all depends upon the context of what you are waiting for.
    But the use of the word been denotes that the wait is now over.

    I've been waiting on my mother to finish dinner.
    I've been waiting on the bus to go home.
    I've been waiting on this package to arrive.
    I've been waiting on you to get online.

    Most private schools here in America apply that rule if I remember correctly, albeit doesn't apply in colleges (as far as I know, but I could be wrong).

    I've never really encountered segregation in all my years in any public school, but then again, that's just my personal experience. Technically, it does exist in very few schools.

    I disagree. There are some contexts where you can use "been" and you are still in the process of waiting, although you usually do put a qualifier of the end of the sentence to let the person know that you're not done waiting yet. For example:

    "I've been waiting on the bus to arrive." This does not definitively tell me that the bus has or has not arrived. If I call you and say, "Why aren't you here yet?" and you reply, "I've been waiting on the bus to arrive", you might still be waiting on the bus. Although normally you would say, "I've been waiting on the bus and it still isn't here yet".

    Anyway, TL;DR: Saying "been" does not always mean that you're done waiting, but usually, if you're not done waiting, you put a qualifier on the end of the sentence.
