  • What movie is this?

    This has been bugging me for a while. I have been trying to remember this one movie from like 10-13 years ago.

    All I remember from it are the following things:

    1. I believe that it was about a kid in High School.

    2. There was a scene where he attacked / tackled down one of his teachers or classmates (I don't remember which one specifically).

    3. There was a scene where he spied on his neighbor from his room's window as she was getting changed.

    4. But what sticks out to me the most is this one scene where he was playing his Xbox 360 and his mom unplugged it as he was playing it.

    Please, help a brother out. Thanks.

  • Roblox Account Hacked and Banned, need advice?

    I created my account in 2007 when I was 11 years old. Although I haven't played much recently, I hold a lot of fond memories of this game.

    On the 23rd, I received an email stating that my premium subscription had expired, something which I had never purchased. So I tried to log on to the game only to find out that my account had been hacked.

    I recovered my account via email and saw that most of its assets had been transferred over to the hijacker. They had also messaged a bunch of people trying to convince them to hand over their passwords. 

    I immediately contacted Roblox via the support section, telling them that my account had been compromised and that the actions that were taken were not my own.

    The following day, on the 24th, I logged onto the game only the find out that my account had been deleted with the following message: Your account has been moderated because one or more of the charges on the account were reported as unauthorized or disputed by the billing account holder.

    I tried to appeal and was transferred over to a billing specialist who looked over my case and said that my account could not be re-opened at the time and that the card holder would need to contact them in regards to the terminated account when I wasn't even the one who made the purchase in the first place.

    Additionally, they stated that they would close my replies if I tried to contact them again.

    Even though I rarely play, this still managed to bum me out to the point of depression.

  • Should an underweight person be fasting?

    I'm 122lbs at 5'8.5. Lately, there's been a lot of fad on the benefits of extended fasting (days without food).

    Having recently recovered from an eating disorder, I'm wondering if watching these types of informative content is healthy.

  • Can you build a fast metabolism slowly over time?

    Hi, I'm a guy who's currently recovering from an eating disorder and physical repercussions caused by extreme/restrictive dieting done over the course of last year.

    My current TDEE is 1980, which isn't bad for my current weight (122lbs at 5'8.5) but pretty low for the general population that is not underweight.

    My goal is to build a fast metabolism slowly over time, the same kind of metabolism that a lot of hard gainers claim to have where they can eat 3000 calories a day without gaining an ounce.

    I'm doing this by adding about 10 calories a week to my TDEE.

    Will my body keep adapting to these metabolic changes assuming that I am a normal human being with no special or super physiological qualities?

    Thanks.

  • How much water weight can I lose in a week theoretically?

    I am a guy who is 5'8.5 and weigh 122lbs.

    I religiously count calories and for the sake of this question I decided to also count macros.

    On an average day I'll consume about 1950 calories consisting of 250g of carbs and 2000mg of sodium, both which are the main roots of water retention.

    I'm not actually going to try this:

    if I were to cut out carbs and sodium for a week, how much water weight would I lose as a result while eating the same number of calories?

  • Are long term diets unsuccessful?

    In the summer of 2017 I was around 130-135lbs; I was at my strongest in terms of body weight movements which I'm into.

    So in 2018, I dieted down to 118lbs (I'm 5'8.5ft tall) and since then my weight has rebounded to 122lbs.

    I'm struggling to maintain this BW, and it made me think; if our bodies are programmed to sit at a set point weight then wouldn't that just make dieting down pointless if there is no way to maintain long term weight loss without suffering repercussions?

    This sucks; all of this calorie counting and constant planning is not the kind of life that I wish upon anyone.

    I feel like I'm stuck in a loop; I don't like my natural bodyweight because my body naturally looks stocky; I pile on too much muscle in places which makes me look like a dwarf and accumulate fat in the wrong areas.

    I could really use some guidance right about now and I implore you to PLEASE be gentle when replying.

  • Are natural slimming teas dangerous?

    Would taking a natural slim tea maybe once a week which is what I started doing recently have any repercussions?

    I take them whenever I feel bloated after a big meal and want to de-bloat quickly.

    From what I've heard, the calories from the food still get absorbed by the body and all it does is rid water.

    On the back of the tea bag that I have it says to just not take it consecutively for 10 days.

  • Can you gain muscle at maintenance as a newbie?

    Greetings friends. Over the start of the last few weeks I've been upping my work outs with more weigh training related activities. I don't have a gym membership, and for the time being I rather just stick to training at home on my spare time because I don't plan to gain a significant amount of muscle, rather just a little.

    I am currently 122lbs at 5'8.5 (174cm)

    My goal is to pack on a little muscle over time, maybe to about 125-127lbs without gaining excess fat so I can retain definition, get more toned, and still remain at a light body weight for calisthenics.

    I eat around 1900cals/day which I've calculated to be my maintenance calories.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I heard from various sources that is possible to still make gains at maintenance calories as a newbie.

    So for the time being, I want to keep eating at maintenance until I stall and then maybe go into a lean bulk and gain weight slowly over time until I hit my desired numbers.

    Does this fact hold true?

    Another thing is that over the last 2-3 weeks I have gained a few centimeters around my arms which are the only parts that I really measure. It's not much but they went from 10.5 to about 11.2 inches. Would feel happy to get them to 12 by the end of the month.

    **Another point that I'd like to add is that I used to have a lot of muscle back in my prime (3 years ago) while also hitting the gym.

    So this more about regaining lost muscle rather than building it anew because of nuclei/muscle memory .**

  • Is Tony Stark being forced to drink his own ****?

    I asked this on the Marvel fandom page and I think that it may have gotten removed even though I didn't intend it to be considered a troll post or anything like that.

    So in the trailer for Endgame he says that he ran out of food and water four days ago. Even though the body can live without food for several days I don't think that I can go without water for more than a few.

  • How does the "no negotiating with terrorists" rule apply?

    It's difficult to phrase exactly what I'm trying to ask without providing an example so here goes:

    Say a bus full of school children are taken hostage by a group of extremists who demand a celebrity (or any popular figure for that manner, could even be the president) to harm themselves/pay a ransom/or even humiliate themselves publicly. Is that person forced to abide by their demands?

    In my opinion, it shouldn't be the case because that would make anyone vulnerable at any time. Anyone could kidnap a child/person and demand anything out of anyone on any given day.

    But I am not the general public, and that's just my opinion so how would this work in real life?

    Also this question was inspired by the first episode of Black Mirror; the one where the prime minister is forced into having intercourse with a pig to save the Princess of England.

    Thanks.

  • Does food volume affect bodyweight?

    It's hard to phrase exactly what I'm trying to ask without giving a more detailed example, so here it is:

    Let's say that a person managed to eat 10kg of celery which only equates to 1600 calories according to most nutritional records; would that food be burned off within the span of a day, or would all that celery just sit there for a while?

    What if that person somehow repeatedly did this?

    Also I realize that weight is considered to likely be water weight.

    Thanks.

  • Is air 'EXACTLY' zero calories?

    Science says yes, but nature may differ.

    I for one do not believe that air is exactly zero calories on point.

    KEYWORD : EXACTLY

    I believe that yes, you may as well say that it is zero calories, but considering all of the particles and substances that are in the air, the number may differ by a slight decimal that doesn't impact us in anyway.

    I could be wrong who knows.

    So my ultimate question is:

    Is air EXACTLY ZERO calories, or is it slightly off on average (I'm talking about like 0.0000something, etc).

    Please don't think I'm stupid I know nothing about science and I'd appreciate a simple answer. Thanks.

  • Can I upgrade my specific desktop?

    Hello. Quick disclaimer; I know nothing about how computers work and doing the research is too bothersome and I don't know where to look. Hence why I am here.

    I recently bought this big baby at my local best buy since I needed something for school and for gaming. https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/asus-rog-stri...

    Had it for three weeks, but lately found out that it only came with 8gb of ram installed. This isn't too bothersome as the computer runs perfectly fine and hasn't been a problem.

    However, if I do plan to upgrade in the near future I would like to know if it is possible. Would I be able to upgrade the amount of ram that my computer holds?

  • Does the Supernatural exist on Vikings?

    I am currently nearing the end of season 4.

    From what I have seen so far, it seems to me like the Seer is a supernatural being himself as each of his prophecies have come true.

    There are other examples of supernatural happenings throughout the show such as when Aslaug had a vision of Ragnar and Ivar drowning or when she foretold her sons being born with curses.

    Then there are the appearances of the deceased in spirit.
