    If you have passions with a clone of yourself, is it incest? Or masturbation?

    I've just started using the Tinder app, and I have a question about it:
    Is there anyway to change my profile pic there without changing the one on Facebook at first?

    If one considers the conscious awareness one's own existence inside a body and then refer to a being despite similar appearances ala clone as a consciousness separate to your own, then should it not be considered that making one's own clone is sex and not masturbation. For masturbation is the act sexual pleasuring oneself and since one considers a clone separate from one self, aware of it's own being and separate fro you, then having sex with a clone is not masturbation. As such sex with a clone, who's genetic material is completely identical to yours, is indeed incest.

    Sadly, no. I also wish there was one to quickly look up any avatars with a Milotic on it, but unfortunately, there isn't an option like that.

    Post The "Smack My ***** Up" Question

    Does anyone know how many copies The Prodigy song "Smack My ***** Up" sold in the U.S.? Is it a commercial success, disappointment or failure in the U.S.? Is it considered the best song ever by the music journalism critics?

    resize the image with photoshop, then upload the image to an image hosting website, which can then be put into your sig

    if you're asking if there's a way to do that with bb code, i have no idea.

    Why are people interested in certain things? One of my best friends at school is interested in almost exactly what I am interested in, yet we have grown up so differently. Is it genetics or environmental or do they compliment each other? I know for a fact you cannot force someone to be interested in something, but they may be interested in a certain part of whatever it may be. For example I am only interested in Hitler and WW2, but nothing else I learn in history. Why?

    I don't know if someone's already asked this and if we still are posting questions, but why didn't Nintendo know the servers would crash around the Christmas therefore not letting Pokemon Bank come out on the 27th of December, but some different day? I mean Nintendo should've seriously seen this coming. I mean they are a popular company!

    I might be wrong about this, but I heard that they didn't fully factor in the sheer volume of people who would be getting X and Y for Christmas, and therefore underestimated how many people their servers would have to handle at one time.

    I know how it happened, but seriously I believe Mario and Pokemon are the 1st and 2nd most popular series and Nintendo sponsors/releases the games. They really should've seen it coming.

    This sort of stuff is unavoidable. As a content server, you want to be able to handle an average capacity at all times with ease and some occasional peaks, but the burst traffic on release day is going to crash servers. This happens for pretty much every major release of information that must be served over the internet -- even concerts and festivals for their ticket sales.

    As with anything related to psychology, there are going to be biological, social and cognitive explanations for this, all of which with pros and cons and none of which will give you a definitive answer either way. It'd be very difficult to give a general answer without going into a lot of theory.

    For your interest in Hitler and WW2, only you can answer that, really. I know that's not helpful but no one here is in a position to give an answer. You may have family who were alive during that time and you want to know more so you can have a better understanding of the era they lived in. You may be sympathetic to those who suffered in the war and want to know just what they went through. You may have heard a lot about that period of time and simply want to know what the fuss was about.

    It's too broad an area for someone like me to pinpoint the reason.

    Ironically, I am interested in this question. I asked my mum (did Psychology for 3 years and is going to finish the course early next year) and she said the same explanations as you. My interest in Hitler and WW2 mainly comes from Hitlers' actions and the reasoning behind them. But all I really want to know is why?

    Thanks for your answer

    For what reason does the 3DS XL manual say you should charge the battery fully before playing it for the first time?

    So I just got a new computer with Windows 8, and I'm in general getting used to it. Not crazy about the tiles and things showing up in the margins of the screen, but it's easy enough to ignore and doesn't handle too badly. The only issue I've got is every week or two my computer is forced to restart so it can install some new update or other. This happened a lot on my old laptop too, with a little popup coming up on the lower corner of the screen and allowing me to postpone it for four hour intervals. With windows 8, it tells me about a day in advance on my lock screen, but I'm not usually paying that much attention to it until I get a banner overlaying my screen telling me I've got 30 minutes before my computer restarts, with no way to postpone.

    Is there any way for me to postpone these? Or better yet, shut them off entirely? To the best of my knowledge, they don't have a noticeable effect on any software, and only cause me to stop working for 15 or so minutes while the new updates to unknown programs install.

    I don't know how to turn it off in Windows 8, because I have Windows 7. I turned it off by going to the Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update > Change Settings. I found a guide for how to do it in Windows 8 here.

    I do highly recommend that you turn off Windows Update, not just because it is annoying, but because it can ruin your computer. Two months ago, my laptop started acting REALLY weird. It took longer to boot up, it would randomly freeze when I opened certain programs (most notably Chrome), and it just started running super slow. I ran several virus scans, a malware scan, and searched everything I could on what was wrong to no avail, and I'm really good about keeping my computer clean. I don't visit any sketchy websites or screw around with the BIOS settings. I had to take it to IT at my work and they ran keylogger scans, rootkit scans, bad sector scans, malware and virus scans, and found nothing. At this point it had started only booting into safe mode, and no computer store I took it to could figure out what was wrong with it. Eventually I found an IT person who asked me if I had Windows Update on, and I said yes, and he said that sometimes, in rare cases, Windows Update has been known to basically delete part of its own programming and cause all the problems I was having. And the only fix was to either restore my computer to factory settings or buy a new computer. Fortunately, I had made a restore disk when I got my laptop, otherwise I would have had to buy a new laptop because the computer was so dead that it wouldn't do anything. So I had to restore my computer to factory settings (which was a pain in the butt because I had to rearrange how the computer boots to even get it to read the disk, and it was VERY resistant to letting me do that, as well as not reading the disk half the time) and completely reinstall everything. I also might end up needing to buy Microsoft Office again. Fortunately I had everything backed up on an external drive and Dropbox, or I would have lost everything.

    And that, kids, is why, if you have a PC, you should turn off Windows Automatic Update and always make restore disks for your computer.

    Thank you kindly!

    And yeah, that's why I had to get a new computer in the first place... my old one was in the middle of installing an update like that, when it just stopped working. One of the boot files got corrupted and the whole system went to hell. Fixing it would have been just a little less expensive than replacing the whole thing, and it was a few years old anyway.

    Turning it off is the worst thing to do. Since Windows in general has the biggest install base, the updates are needed to fix security holes in the system. Not doing so is putting your system at a huge risk, even if don't visit unsafe sites. Yes, sometimes the updates might mess up a program like Turbo Tax, but Microsoft has posted workarounds and patches to fix these issues on their site free of charge. Usually anything that was "deleted" is just moved to hidden system folder and a simple manual search can easily find it. Most other problems, are usually cause by the type of PC itself, usually HP computers XP users.

    You're better off waiting than having something, or someone crash your entire PC. If you like that, another option would be to change your settings to "download & advise" which will prompt you to download but wont unless you agree. That can give sometime to search and see if there is any problem with the current update.

    That's actually exactly what I did - I told my computer that it now has to ask permission before downloading any updates now so I can verify that they are not going to corrupt the whole system like they did last time. This was not a software compatibility issue I was having. It was complete destruction of the entire operation of the computer. My computer did the exact same thing as FireBrand's - one of the boot files got corrupted, and there was nothing anyone could do to fix it. I mean the computer acted like it was possessed. You wouldn't have been able to search for any files and put them back where they belonged because it literally would not let you. Even IF I could get it to the point where it booted into Safe Mode, it wouldn't let you do much while you were there. I was VERY lucky that I got it to boot off of the recovery disk at startup, because I tried at least three times before it would even recognize that there was a disk in the drive.

    I thought about putting this in tech help but it's more of a general question than techy-stuff.

    What is a reasonably priced, all around good wireless mouse? By all around, I'm talking comfort, durability, functionality, etc.

    Ok, i cant find this anywhere.
    I took care of a little bird for a day, my dog scared the crap out of it. It had a very interesting color and shape. It had its chest red, with a bit of red on its beak too. Had blue/greenish wings and i believe it had somewhat of a purple color on its back. Had its head blue too, and long white feathers in its tail. Had the shape of a pigeon, but was very little compared to a normal one.
    My question is, can someone please tell me the name of its species? It resembles a passenger pigeon, but thats obviously impossible.
    Stupid question, i know, but cant find it anywhere.
