  • Whys is converting video so slow with my CPU?

    I have a 2010 MacBook Pro with Core i5 processor.

    I looked up my processor on Wikipedia. It has a frontside bus capable of 3200 megabytes per second. So when I convert a high-bitrate 1080p video to 1080p with lower bitrate, it takes many hours and the meaningful output is 1 megabyte per second or less. Why is that?

  • Is this idea copyright infringement or not?

    I’d like to make an educational channel on Youtube (or another platform) about religion. I’m planning to discuss and/or quote verbatim from printed sources such as books and research articles.

    Will the fact that I’ll be quoting from or using parts of printed/copyrighted material be considered infringement?

    If yes, how to not do that? Would I need to pay royalties to the publishers?

    Would it make a difference whether my channel is monetized or not (I hope it will be)?

  • Apple TV 1st gen playing 1080p?

    I have Apple TV 1st gen and installed CrystalHD (newer model). I use external hard drive through USB for my media.

    When I try to play full quality Blu-Rays (40-50GB) on it, the playback is in slow motion, sometimes freezes and crashes pale TV.

    It plays full quality DVDs just fine.

    Is this a defect in the CrystalHD card, or is this normal and expected.

  • I am married and have a stable relationship with my wife, but physical attraction is not ideal?

    Even though we are on the same wave emotionally & intellectually, I still find myself not being strongly physically attracted to her and think that my needs are not entirely met because when I touch her in certain places, she says "it tickles" and turns away or tells me to stop touching these pars of her body. This makes me feel uneasy. So thought about meeting other women through one night stands, etc... with whom I can get only these needs met, and still continue my usual marital relationship with my wife who will fulfill all my other needs as usual. Is this a reasonable plan?

  • Investing in stock market?

    I'm completely new to stock market. I'm planing to explore it. Is it possible to lose more money than you invest?

    For example: if I buy $100 worth of some company's stock, and let's say the market crashes, or that company goes down. Will I only lose that $100, or more?

  • Dedicating a poem?

    I wrote a poem a long time ago for girl A, whom I loved more than anything in the world. I planned to propose to her with this poem. But the relationship ended naturally and I never read her that poem. Now I'm in a relationship with girl B, and I plan to propose maybe using the same poem.

    When I wrote the poem for girl A, I dedicated it to her from very deep in my heart and soul, and her name appears in it many times. In order to now dedicate this poem to girl B, I will need to erase girl A's name and write girl B's name.

    If you were in my place, would you re-dedicate this poem? Would you be willing to erase girl A's name? How would you feel about it?

    Helpful info:

    - no arguments between me and girl A, and no hard feelings. We're still Facebook friends

    - over time, I lost feelings for girl A, but now I just have memories

    - girl A is happily married with kids

    - girl B truly loves me

  • Best way to make a DJ logo?

    For confidentiality, I will write **** instead of my actual DJ name

    I made 2 variants of my DJ logo:

    a) logo that says DJ ****

    b) logo that just says my DJ name (without the letter "DJ" in front of it)

    If I would like to trademark my logo AND my DJ name, which variant is best to use?

    Thank you

  • A question for adult women?

    I read in one of the websites about relationship facts that it is quite common for both men and women, when a member of the opposite sex does to them something they find superficially to be repulsive, they enjoy it deep down.

    The example they gave:

    A lot of men are grossed out by the idea of swallowing ***, but when a woman does it, they find it attractive deep down.

    And women sometimes find feet to be gross, but when a guy licks that woman's feet or kisses them, she will feel deep down that it is attractive.

    Women, do you feel like this is true (at least in your case)?

  • For those who know Apple computers?

    Do you know if Mac Pro (not Macbook Pro) has power saving features similar to the ones in Windows-based computers where the hard disks turn off automatically after a certain period of not being used, activation of hybernation mode, & stadnby, etc...

    Also, if I get Mac Pro with RAM that runs at a certain frequency, and would like to upgrade it in a few years with RAM that works at a higher frequency and has more capacity, will the Mac Pro support it?

  • Ladies, is this OK or not?

    I am friends with this girl in college and she wears short blouses that show her stomach and her belly button when it's warm outside. Would it be OK if I say to her as a complement that her belly button looks cute? What about saying it even a girl I don't know?

    I didn't make any complements but I just want to know what the females think about this before I say it.

    I don't look weird or anything like that, so there's no reason to to think that I have problems

  • Please help me, what shoul I do?

    I like this girl more than anything in this world but she doesn't seem too interested in me. I wrote her a few emails but she didn't answer all of them. Do you think I should write her another email? Do you think it's OK if I write her an email and ask her out? Do you think she will get annoyed or just won't care? Is it worth doing?

    Thanks

  • Question for the ladies?

    Sorry if it sounds weird, but it’s a serious question

    I sometimes notice that the women who wear clothing that shows their stomach get upset when guys look (not stare) at their belly button and stomach. Why do the women dress like that if they don't feel comfortable when men look at their belly button? Also, why do a lot of ladies get their belly buttons pierced? And why do they do it if they don't want men to look at it? And would it be OK if a man made a complement to a woman that her belly button or her belly button ring looks nice? (I never made a complement like this, but just asking)

    I know this is a very weird question, sorry if it sounds awkward; I really don’t mean anything bad, just curious.

    Thanks
