  • Help with investing online?

    With the recent crash of the stock market, I am looking into buying some stock. Specifically, I am an amusement park enthusiast, so I am looking to buy one share of SIX, SEAS, and FUN. Obviously this is not a true long term investment, I just want to be able to say I own each, and would like a certificate of each share. With current prices, it is hard to pass up this opportunity.

    I heard you have to buy 100 shares at a time, which I am not interested in. Where can I go online to buy one share of SIX, SEAS, and FUN, and also be able to get a certificate?

    Thanks for any information.

  • Help building a dual-monitor set up with my laptop?

    I am getting my own apartment in the summer and want to have a dual monitor set up, but do not know much about it. I have a Dell XPS 15 9560 (i7, 2.8GHz, 16GB) laptop that I would prefer to build off of. I think I’m looking for two monitors, but maybe my laptop itself can serve as a third? The most tedious thing I would need to run efficiently would be to have Runescape 3 on one screen and excel on the other. I don’t need anything top of the line, just enough to run those two simultaneously with no lag or anything. Can my existing laptop be capable of this? What kinds of things would I need to make this happen? If my laptop can’t do it, what kind of set up should I look into? I’ve never had a dual monitor set up so I’m not too familiar with what I need.

  • How do I multiply time by occurrences in excel?

    I am making a spreadsheet documenting my roller coaster rides this summer. I want to multiply the duration of the ride by the number of times I have ridden the ride to get the total amount of time I have spent on the ride. For example, I have ridden a ride 24 times that is 1 minute, 30 seconds long. So I have been on the ride for a total of 36 minutes. However, when I multiply 24 x 1:30, I get 12:00 in excel. How do I get 36:00? Also, would the formula be different if I have spent over 60 minutes on a ride?

  • What to do in downtown Chicago aside from the "common"?

    I live in the Chicago suburbs so I have done all the common touristing stuff all to often (all sports, The Bean, pizza, Navy Pier etc.) I will be staying on then Mag Mile for 5 nights, and while I will be revisiting all the popular things, I am open to new experiences / little known activities downtown. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    PS: I am satisfied with my knowledge of pizza joints downtown. Do not suggest any, the lesser known pizza places deserve to be unexposed. AKA I know a place that needs to stay under the radar, lets keep it that way.

  • How to back up my iPhone to transfer photos and contacts?

    I had a 5c and just bought an 8. The problem is that my 5c I used my dad's apple account and with the 8 I will be making my own so I can not use iCloud. I have never backed up my phone (yeah, that one alert you get every week to back up your iPhone? I was easily over 150 weeks...) so how do I do it? I have a Mac. Also, I want to transfer over everything EXCEPT music. Is there a way to choose what I transfer to the 8 or do I have to transfer everything over and then delete the music? its 10 gb I just want it to stay on my 5c, its my dad's music and I have my own Spotify I will use on the 8.

    Any useful tutorial videos on YT or guides to help me? Thanks!

  • Should I buy an iPhone 8 through Apple or Virgin? Also, how to transfer pictures?

    I currently have an iPhone 5c and I am going to buy the 8. My current carrier is Virgin and I will be staying with them when I get the 8. Should I preorder it through apple and then activate the phone or preorder it (when its available for preorder) through virgin? What are pros and cons on doing it either way?

    Also, is there an external way to transfer photos from the 5c to the 8? I will be creating a new Apple ID when I get the 8 so things like my contacts won't transfer when I sign into my ID on the 8 because I will be creating a new one. I have a Mac, is there a way I can do it using the Mac? Like, if there was a cord that went from one iPhone to the other and transferred that would be great!

    Thanks for any help!

  • Help with buying an iPhone?

    I have had my iPhone 5c for three and a half and it is time to move on. It is extremely touching with charging and is an internal issue, not the cord. Plus Apple will no longer be bringing updates to the 5c.

    I tried buying a 7+ a month ago while on vacation but it didn t pan out. When we got home, I decided I would wait for the 8, but now I m having second thoughts.

    The thing with the 8 is that the ONLY reason I want/wanted it was so that I could have an iPhone that Apple would keep updating. I thought, why buy a 7 when I could wait for the 8 and have more iOS updates in the long run. I don t care for the new features the 8 will have, so when news broke it was going to be $1,000 I started having second thoughts. Is a years worth of iOS updates worth the price?

    I would prefer the 7plus over the 7 because of the upgraded camera. Pictures are important to me. So right now the plan is to wait until the 8 s are out to get the 7+ so that the price will go down.

    Is the 7+ a smarter move? Will it be marked down significantly after the 12th?

  • How to get rid of photos from computer on an iPhone?

    A while back I must have charged my phone on my computer and accidently (or automatically?) transferred all the pictures already on my computer into my 5c. It won't let me delete these pictures on the iPhone. How do I get rid of them? They're annoying, there's at least 1,500+ and I'm sure they take up a chunk of storage. I don't want them gone on the computer, just my iPhone. Thanks!

  • Snapchat video difficulties?

    About 36 hours ago I posted a video onto my story. Roughly ten minutes later I went to see who watched it and it showed how many people watched it, but it wouldn't let me see who or let me delete it. Also, I can hardly watch other people's stories. It will show they posted, but when I tap on it, it just "watches" the snap but doesn't even show up on the screen. I don't see the story. A couple hours ago I tried sending a video to a friend and my story and snapchat just totally crashed. Usually if my snapchat has a problem it fixes itself within 24 hours but it hasn't this time. For the past two weeks, if I lock my iPhone 5c with snapchat open, when I go to unlock my phone it will crash and send me to home screen. That wasn't annoying but now that I can't watch others stories or post my own I should try to fix it. Would deleting the app and then reinstalling it help? What else could? The only thing I have really "tried" was turning my phone off and back on.

  • Cedar Point & Kings Island help?

    so next week I am going to Kings Island (KI) and Cedar Point (CP) for practically the first time. Never been to KI but have not been inside Cedar Point in 13 years. So I had a few questions. I've always been a Six Flags guy so Cedar Fair is not my game.

    Would a souvenir bottle from KI work at CP?

    Are their coasters that require you to buy a locker to hold personal belongings? (In other words, am I allowed to bring a bag or souvenir bottle to the coaster platform)

    If some rides require a locker rental, is there a pass that I could buy that works for all lockers I would use?

    Is the Pro Fast Lane worth it at CP on Thursday (week from tomorrow) with a 30% chance of thunderstorms (as of now)?

    Besides that I think I have everything else answered. Thanks for your help! Help from one specific park out of the two is appreciated. Thank you!

  • What roller coaster do you want to ride most that you have never ridden?

    Just a fun question out of curiosity!

    Mins would have to be Wicked Cyclone at Six Flags New England. Despite its size compared to other elite coasters, Wicked Cyclone looks amazing and relentless, not letting up any action. I love Rocky Mountain Construction, which really makes me want to ride Wicked Cyclone so bad!

  • Six Flags America and/or Six Flags Great Adventure Trip Advice?

    I'll be visiting both Six Flags America (SFA) and Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAd) for the first time within the next 2 weeks, both on weekdays. I will be spending one day at each park. I have Season Passes so parking and admission is nothing to worry about. I need more advice/tips for things when I'm within the parks. I would like to get the most I can get done when I'm at the parks because I most likely won't be coming back.

    I have my "must rides" for both parks. When the parks open what rides should I try to get on first? For SFGAd I heard if Kingda Ka is running, ride that first. But what about SFA?

    What should park attendance be like? My home park is Six Flags Great America and on weekdays lines (especially Goliath) can get really long. Do you recommend buying a Flash Pass for either park? I can only afford a Gold Flash Pass for one park, I'm thinking SFGAd because they have more roller coasters... And I'm sure Zumanjaro's line will be long not only because it opened a month ago but it's capacity is low

    Will the lines get shorter as the park gets closer to closing time?

    Are there shops near the entrance to buy souvenirs at both parks?

    Any information is appreciable! And you don't have to know about both parks to answer. If you know everything about one park give a response of that park only!

    Thanks so much! I really appreciate it!

  • Where are some of my pictures on my camera roll?

    So I've been on vacation for awhile. I've been taking pictures with my camera on my iPhone and I've takin some pictures on snapchat. I took a lot of picture yesterday when I went to Six Flags (fun!). But this morning I went to look at the photos, and all the photos takin at Six Flags aren't on my camera roll. The pictures I uploaded on snapchat while at Six Flags are still on snapchat (my story) but it won't let me save them to my gallery. All they pictures I've takin before I went to Six Flags are still on my phone. Do you guys have any idea where they are, or if their gone forever? Thanks in advance!

  • Ways to lose belly fat?

    So I'm a 13 year old who is 5'11 (boy lol) who isn't in the best shape. I weigh roughly 175. I've been wanting to get into better shape for a long time for reasons, but I don't seem to change. I think it's my eating habits why I'm like this. I play sports, go outside, and jump on a trampoline almost every day but nothing is happening. During the school year I have a cardio day in gym once a week. You are supposed to run 2 miles in 35 mins but I run 2 1/4. I'm not fast but (being honest here) can jog without walking for a long time. Out of my class I finish about 12th out of 50.

    So now that you know what I do, what kind if exercises can I do at home to lose belly fat? Also, would I maybe be able to get a pack after that?

    Thank you!

  • Does getting two (2) crowns hurt?

    So my friend chipped my 2 buck teeth (front top teeth) and I went to the doctor the next day, and he said I would have to get crowns. That was about 1 month ago. Now, I have to go to the doctor in a week for a regular clean up, but in the same day later they have to "prep" the teeth. This includes shaving my teeth so that the crown can fit. Then they will give me "temps" crowns, which aren't the real ones. After that, 2 weeks later, I have to get the real crowns. So here are my questions. Sorry I'm wordy.

    *Keep in mind I am 13, so (for example) you are a grown man and got crowns, and didn't hurt, and you are telling me this, sense I'm a wimpy 13 year old, tell me if it will hurt in my conditions.*

    Q1: Will anything hurt?

    Q2: What will hurt the most?

    Q3 Will they give me shots that make me talk funny?

    Q4: Is there anything to worry about?

    Q5: What day will hurt the most?

    Thanks.

  • What is the best non-degradable armor for runescape with my stats?

    My Xbox broke so for now I will be playing Runescape as a substitute. I havn't played in a while so I don't know prices, new armor, and the eoc.

    My stats are 75 attack, 71 strength, 71 defense, and 74 constitution. I don't have a lot of money, only about 1.5m. So, if you would like to, I also need a way to make money. Here is what I currently wear (member):

    Helm: Helm of Netizoit (how ever it is spelled)

    Cape: Obsidian Cape

    Necklace: Amulet of Glory

    Weapon: It depends what I am fighting. Either Bandos God Sword or Abyssal Whip

    Shield: Dragon Defender

    Chestplate: Granite Chestplate or whatever it is called

    Pants: Dragon Platelegs

    Shoes: Dragon Shoes

    Hands: Dragon Gauntlets

    Ring: ring of Wealth

    I'm not really looking for the best offensive of defensive armor, just best all around. I think Bandos is the way to go for the non degradable, but I played for about 4 years and only made around 5m the whole time. I have a hard time of making money. I might as well tell you how I make my money

    F2p: Hill Giants, thier Limprot root things on the dungeon erring cave thing

    P2p: 1. Kill Jungle Spiders for about 130k per hour 2. Kill War tortiorces for 40k- 200k per hour

    I also like killing for drops so that I can train while making money, so I think that since I am a member now I will kill the Mature Grotworms.

    Thanks for answering two questions for me!

  • How do I deal with a friend problem?

    So I have 4 friends, ( 1 I dont want to be friends with, the one I have a problem with.and they know me as the funny person, the one that has all the humor. So, I tell jokes and that kind of stuff. I don't mean it of course, but I tell jokes about them and they laugh at how funny it is. Except for 1. This "friend" has been friends with me for a while, but he seems to annoy me ALOT, so I don't want to be friends with him. But I just want to make my friends happy and just pretend. Here is the problem. He takes the jokes I say seriously. And what I say isn't even true about him. He will be like, why would you say that I am like that!? That is so mean. This is Ben going on for a month. He started to get me annoyed, so I slowly started telling jokes about him more then others. Now that 2 months have passed, I am ashamed of myself.I now only tell. Jokes about him. I want to stop but my friends are now like, you are the funniest person I can be friends with! I don't know why but I keep going. Now on the friend that is getting the jokes told on, I feel so horrible now. He is all depressed and is saying I am a bully. I feel horrible because I think I really am one. But here is the worst part. He is threatening me to report me to a teacher about me being a bully. Here is the worst part, my parents always call me the best ( don't worry, I'm the only) son they could ever have and I'm never inappropriate. They are overprotective about me, and if they found out I am a bully they wouldn't talk to me for months. I am a bully. I can't stop. I don't want to get reported. I don't want to lose my friends. Now I am getting depressed about it myself. I feel horrible. I don't know what to do. Tryied to ignore him, it didn't work. I tried to be nice, and he accused me that I was faking to make my friends laugh. What should I do! And fast, he could report to me at any time!
