    I have a fairly old HP Deskjet 1000 (J110) 2010 and my problem is that the black ink is skipping lines I have tried dissolving the possible dried ink in the jets with water and more recently alcohol to no avail. There is also the problem of the printer printing in light blue rather than black when both ink cartridges are inserted at the same time. The colored ink works absolutely fine and prints as expected it's only the black ink that has problems, it's faded and skips lines. The alcohol cleared up the faded image, but the lines skipping has not ceased. I've tried it on two different computers and the problem seems to be with the printer or the black ink cartridge. Is there a solution to this or should I just get a new printer?

I haven't used or cleaned it since we packed it into storage in mid 2009, I've owned it since 2004/2005 it still plays tapes perfectly fine I was just curious as to how long they can play tapes? And also, if I were to keep it well maintained and cleaned it regularly could extend it's life indefinitely? I do know VHS tapes cannot last forever, the tapes degrades each time they are watched, but I'm going to just ignore that fact since there is nothing I can do to stop it.

    I have a Laptop from the late 90s it is a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4200 Series it was previously used as an office computer. My dad had received it from my uncle who was the previous owner in 2004/2005 I assume my uncle used it for work for at least 6 years. It was running windows 2000 when we got it, but we later downgraded to Windows 98se due to comparability and to prevent slow downs. The computer is now considered out dated as you would expect and it has been drained of it's practical usefulness. However my question stems deeper than the computer being just something to work on and my curiosity is how long can this computer continue to work and play games and operate as it should? The computer is about 20 years old it came out when Windows 98 and Windows ME was popular which is what the computer was designed to work with. The computer is considerably much more reliable compared to modern computers I've used which tend to last until their hard drive fails. This computer on the other hand is by comparison a much more reliable system in and of the fact that it is the only computer I have owned that hasn't yet died. My question is how long can this computer continue to function as it was intended? Note: I don't care about modern functions since I I don't want to use this computer for that, it just isn't capable, I use it simply to play old games I had and DOS games. Currently, the computer I'm writing this on and the computer I work with is a Windows 8.1 Dell Inspiron 15.

It doesn't help that the dog doesn't learn from his mistakes, he has even ate wasps that land on flowers, his mouth swells from that, but still tries to eat them not learning from his mistakes.

    The spider in particular was a Woodlouse Spider, I couldn't find much information regarding their bites. Which is why I am asking this question. The area it bit me on (The fatty area below my thumb) is itchy and red resembling a mosquito bite, (the redness is more pronounced though) I ran scalding hot water on it for as long as I could stand so about 15 seconds it has since just been red. I know this is the spider that bit me because I saw it in the floor running away and I promptly killed it after the fact. I assume it hitched a ride on my clothes when I went outside. What are the effects I can expect from this spider bite? And what can I do to reduce the itchiness? Thank you in advance.

    I have 2 dogs outside that are really curious and ready to attack anything that comes into the yard, 2 days ago the smaller of my two dogs found a copperhead snake that had made it under my back porch the dog was barking unrelenting and the snake was striking at him, when I got out there with my flash light and I tried to get my dog away from the snake so I could draw its attention to me so I could kill it, but he wouldn't so the only thing I knew to do was to throw my flashlight at the dog it hit him pretty hard, but it did get him to leave the snake alone long enough for me to kill it. I knew that if he were to have gotten bitten he would have died that same night, we live about 15 miles from the highway and the closest 24 hour vet was 4 hours away which would be impossible to make with the dog still alive. The venom would have already spread too much to save him. Did I do the right thing by hitting him like that? I just did whatever I could to make sure he stayed alive even if that meant hitting him like that, but I feel bad since I have lost some of his trust. He is a 13 pound Yorkie-poo with a sweet, energetic personality. This isn't a joke question, I am serious about this.

I really just need some advice getting back into Anime I feel like a part of me is missing like there is just an emptiness that only anime can fill and I just can't seem to get back into it, now I find myself just watching half an anime and then stop even though I enjoyed it and it really sucks. I have always liked art styles like Blue Exorcist and Fate/Stay Night so please, if you suggest anime make sure that the art style is similar. The only exception to that rule was Soul Eater. Thanks in advance.

    Just recently I was given the responsibility of watching my cousin who is 4 years old. At first me her and her brother were all happy he was playing computer games and she was having a pillow fight with me, but then not moments later she just started pacing the room and in random intervals screaming as if she is crying she said she wanted her mom and I told her that she'll be back in just a little while or so but each time I'd tell her that she'd scream louder still with no tears and didn't appear her brother tried to comfort her saying the same thing I told her which she'll be back in a few minutes, but she continued to scream louder still with no visible tears and no noticeable signs of actual unhappiness it just seemed me that the reason she did what she did is because she has been indirectly taught to fake cry to get what she wanted. My question is was this what I thought it was or was it real? Since when this girl gets hurt or scared she cries real tears instead of what I saw tonight? I really tried to calm her down too, I tried to get her to play games to get her mind off of it I tried comforting her to no avail, it just seemed that she did this to get what she wanted.

As far as I know she isn't unhealthy or sick, she eats right and drinks properly and I haven't noticed any changes in her rate of using the bathroom. She doesn't look or act sick and I cannot find anything really wrong with her health wise or her in any physical pain. She is most of the time an calm cat, and when I try to treat her right she hisses and scratches me, but now she is overly affectionate. I have read that this is a subtle sign of health issues and I need some advice. I can take her to the vet if I have to, but I'd rather just solve it here at home to save money.

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for Moore's Green Onion Flavored Potato Chip's. I ate this flavor of chips way back in the early 2000s I can remember the flavor almost exactly, but Food City has long since quit selling this flavor altogether. Even if I can't buy it anymore I would like confirmation of it at least existing because I've been going to multiple search engines looking for this specific flavor, but I can't even find a picture of it, the only thing I could find was a forum of a person asking a very similar question. Again, the Brand is Moore's and the flavor of the chips is Green Onion do not confuse it with Moore's Sour Cream & Onion which is still available you can buy this brand at Food City, but as I've said the Green Onion Flavor is no longer available for an unknown reason and there are virtually no traces of it anywhere and I know for a fact it existed since I can remember eating them as a kid. Please help bring me some closure!

    I honestly have a hard time understanding this aspect, because I've developed the mindset that another persons opinion about me even if it is negative doesn't matter, it means nothing to me, in other words I just don't care, but for other people the words of other people their actions and/or their expressions can set them off or make them lose their temper, I ask these people: Why does it matter what they think? It doesn't make sense to me that you would waste your time telling these people "Don't you ever talk bad about me!" or something of that nature, it doesn't benefit them. As for myself I largely don't care about other people I see them as an obstacle like a tree that I have to walk around what they mumble under their breath means nothing to me, in the grand scheme of things it's an inconvenience to me, I just what to get to where I'm going. Being nice a person to others is also something I've got to act out, because it doesn't matter if they think I'm a jerk or not. I often find it hard to understand people who care so much about these meaningless actions. Am I wrong in my ways? I would like a broad spectrum of opinions so I can better understand this situation I've found myself in.

It's like people can't get over it, what's the deal? Sure you don't like him, but nothing you say or do will change who the president is. At thispoint it's quite obvious that Trump doesn't care about the constant criticism and hate he gets, that is what he campaign was built on, he targeted states that were harmed by Obama's presidency and manipulated that anger and turned it into votes for him, he knew he didn't need a majority vote so he didn't blindly focus on the lefts votes, he tapped an unseen amount of older voters from a larger amount of states and won that way. I know my question will become a contradiction of itself, but why the hell does everyone have to dwell on Trump's presidency?

    First off, my dad spotted a small Yorkie/poodle and decided that he'd take it home and give it to my mom, not thinking about the possible diseases it could have, my cat stays inside all the time so we've not gotten all her vaccinations and our dog has his vaccinations so he isn't going to get what he has, but my cat is my biggest worry, the new dog has ran into the house multiple times trying to chase my cat and has touched her a few times and as of recently I've noticed the new dog is hacking and sneezing not often but just enough to get me alarmed. My dad, being the nonchalant person he is about diseases and cancers told me I'm just being a hypochondriac (he's the type that doesn't like doctors and would wait until he is almost dying before he'd see a doctor). What could this hacking be? I've notice the dog eats grass a lot which tells me the dog has a problem with his stomach or he isn't digesting food properly, he's hacking somewhat frequently and today I've notice he is sneezing, and this could mean any numbers of things from distemper to kennel cough or dog flu who knows, but my worry is my cat I've had her for two years and that dog has touched her 3 different times. I plan to get my cat vaccinated very soon probably within the week, but is it possible for that dog to spread what it has to my cat? Or are there any disease that can be spread between species? I need an answer from someone who knows their stuff.
