  • Which is better- to be yourself, or to hide who you are?

    Well, it's not that I'm confused or anything, I'd just like to take a kind of survey. The question is pretty obvious, but if you need elaboration- For example- some people are born very sensitive and they try to hide from emotions by labelling it as a feeble excuse for the week minded. Some others are born sensitive and don't mind showing that they are, which includes the drama-queen kind of people.

    Some times, people are afraid of being someone they really are- like a dare-devil or a complete wreck at heart or a very disturbed private life, and because they're always under the lime-light, they think it's best to act like as if they really enjoy being the centre of all attention, always the perfect kind that everyone is jealous of.

    Some other times, people try to block out incidents from life, hiding and running away from reality, rather than dealing with it. Some people would say- it's easier to block it, some others would say it's better, if not easier, to deal with it.

    Back to the main question- what do you believe in-running away, or standing up to all of it?

  • How do I add sub-titles?

    I'm working on VideoPad Editor, and I need to add sub-titles so that non-English speaking people can understand the fast speech. Is there any software that can automatically convert speech into subtitles? If there is any such software, where can I download it?

  • Some real RealPlayer help needed here!!?

    I have downloaded RealPlayer for free from the official website, the basic version.

    Apparently, I've seen a person have this software, who can download videos from Youtube, using the same version. So when I checked out a video that I can download, the Download toolbar does not appear. So I cannot download it to view and edit it in my computer.

    Can you please help me by telling me how to download a particular video from youtube through RealPlayer?

  • Do you think this is right?

    There are some religions that provide a wrong definition for God. Though I am a strong believer in Him, I seriously DO NOT believe in rituals, rules and regulations, etc..

    Why should all such rules and regulations come in between? These were made by Man, not God. Bible was written by Man. Not God. Because it is not relevant in today's world, it is not written by God- the perfect being who gives perfect solutions to questions that are relevant in daily life- whether it was 2000 years ago, or right now; different problems have the same root cause, and the solution is given by God. A religion that defines God as a big Daddy looking up from the skies, waiting to punish you for being 'Homosexual' (that is, you are created by Him, still you are punished by Him), etc. --no, I don't think it is that way.

    I just want your opinions. Atheists and theists, both are most welcome.

    Thank You!

  • What if two people are in sort of a "silent relationship"?

    where none of the two have confessed but have a mutual understanding but the gal on maturing realizes that he is not "the one" and that the boy has gone wayward but still she can't get over him. She wants to rejuvenate him, she wants to talk to him , she wants to talk everything unsaid and wants to break the "mutual understanding" and make their relationship more verbal.she is tired of the subtlety and wants to tell him that she liked the boy he was but not the man he is growing into. but she couldn't because he doesn't seem to be cooperative and she's got the feeling that he's not the "one woman" type. What should she do?

  • I need help to help!?

    A 30s neighbor of mine, who was a basketball teacher-sort person, and he used to play basketball with me and other youngsters of my age--> I think he looks very sad and depressed. I don't know what is bothering him, or why... It was only a couple of months ago that we last played. We played every evening during the summer, for about 3-4 weeks. My best-friend was there too. And he used to look a bit more cheery when he would play with us, compared to what he looks now. I don't know if I'm just seeing things, or something, but it really bothers me a lot. He gave a really nice past-time, and I never really got to learn or play with my whole-heart for a long time. It was those times that taught me to be open and confident when it comes to playing games. And to see him that way (from my point of view) hurts me.

    Please Help! I'm too shy to talk about it. Because, it would mean like I'm noticing elders too much, or I talk too much...

  • Taxicab Geometry-it's against Euclidean geometry, so what?

    In taxicab geometry, the shortest distance between two points is determined by many lines. But in Euclidean geometry, the shortest distance between 2 points is determined by only one line. So, while applying the same for physics too, isn't displacement not supposed only one path?

    Or is it this way round? Finding the shortest possible ways through 2 given points would be adding the difference of the coordinates -->the distance between points L(3,2) and M(4,6): it becomes |3-4| + |6-2| = 1 + 4 = 5. Does the same go for finding the distance in a velocity-time graph?

    Where am I going wrong?

  • I need Help in here!!?

    I cannot work under high pressure. I am a bright student, and I usually score high grades. Till date I have NEVER failed an exam.

    My cousins visited me, 2 weeks are rolling like jet plane. I cannot concentrate on my studies, and also I cannot fully let myself play with them. They are 5 and 9 years old. My grand parents, grand uncle and aunt, uncle-aunt, aunt-cousin sister, also visited me for 4 days, and I couldn't touch my books for all those days, when my exams were going to start on the second week from then. My papers are going to be really hard, my seniors say, and I haven't studied much, my exams start from the next week. Perhaps, I am sort of thorough with my syllabus, and it's just peer tension that I think I'm blank...

    On top of that, my best friend- my elder sister just left home for her college, and I feel terribly lonely at home- home looks and feels empty, tears well up at her thoughts. And my mother is busy with her guests, community and household chores...I do not want to disturb her with my problems. My cousins complain that I do not spend enough time with them, and they are too young to understand that I am fully loaded, and still, I'm spending time with them..
