About me

Picture

Hello, I'm theymos (Michael). I specialize in computer questions. I will usually not answer other types of questions.Over 2000 questions answered, for great justice. I am very experienced with Windows XP and Vista, I know enough about Linux to use it well, and I've never used a Mac in my life.

While I am not nearly as active on Advicenators as I once was, feel free to send me private questions or links to interesting public questions.

I currently dual-boot XP and Vista. I use Vista primarily, with XP for games. If your problem is particularly interesting, I am able to boot into XP or even install an operating system on a spare computer.

Feel free to contact me by IM (at right) rather than or in addition to asking me questions on Advicenators. With that method, I am able to better diagnose your problem, and I can also use a special tool to take control of your computer and fix the problem for you.

My computer is nearly always on, so be aware that when my IM status is "away", it could mean "away for 10+ hours".

Question:
when you get sent spam e-mails..with like it saying hot girls getting cummed on..what if you click on one..will it give your computer a virus?
theymos's answer:
Sometimes. Sometimes it just leads to an advertisement.

Question:
if you can only get STDs from another person transmitting it to someone else.. how did the first STD start? like, why only through intercourse does it get passed? how did the first person somehow get this and it kept on going on and spreading throughout the ages?
theymos's answer:
They are passed by chance. They just happen to reside in certain bodily fluids. When these fluids enter someone else's body, they also become infected. The virus doesn't do anything to help propagate itself other than existing.

The STDs came about by evolution, like everything else. They mutated from other viruses.

Human HIV specifically came from blood-to-blood contact with apes. By a hunter who was hunting the apes.

Regarding xxlilreddivaxx's answer(which should reappear here in a few days):
-STDs can be spread even with protected sex
-Many STDs can survive for hours or days without a host
-The type of herpes spread from kissing and lip gloss is not an STD. It will only affect your lip area, and might not be permanent.

Question:
As a rough percentage.. what are the chances of getting pregnant by pre-cum when there was no penetration, no penis/vagina touching.. just fingers touching lips which didnt enter either
theymos's answer:
My guess is 1 in 20,000.

Question:
Says that organisms that engage in homeostasis have needs, and one of those needs are sex. How does Maslow's Theory apply to asexual people? (Do not crave/want/need sex.)
theymos's answer:
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs only applies to normal people. Asexual people, Psychopaths, and Buddhist monks are not normal. It's a simple matter of Maslow not thinking of these people when he created The Hierarchy.

Question:
I am looking for advice on a rape victim, keep the kid or not?

16 YEAR OLD GIRL.

Really, it's not the child's fault, they didn't ask to be killed because they were concieved wrong right?
But then again, having the kid will be a daily reminder, and ruin her future.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
ANY ADVICE?



Thank you for the time!
theymos's answer:
The population is too high as it is, there is absolutely no reason you should allow an unwanted child to be born. Since you are not financially or emotionally ready for a child, it will live a sub-optimal life and will only hinder humanity's progress.

The child is alive even before conception, just the same as every living cell in your body. It is *not*, however, morally wrong to kill it until later. Most people say the third trimester; I would go so far as to say a few weeks after it's been born.

Question:
put a pic on your advice collumm??
theymos's answer:
You can only add one picture, see lauraxomichelle. There isn't any way to add more than one.

If you use my Tri-Star layout:

You can use a link like this to create a sort of slideshow:

Question:
okay well yesterday i went to the doctors for my check up and they made me pee in a cup ... which they never make me do and she said it was to check for any diseases ( is an HIV/AIDS test done by peeing in a cup?) or could it be a drug test


Thanks i was just curious =)
theymos's answer:
They're not lying, and they won't just "happen to notice" any drugs you're taking. Don't worry about it.

Question:
I've been watching porn on TV for the past couple of nights. Not the whole thing but just segments. Im 16/f by the way. I've never had sex, or even kissed. Im feeling pretty ashamed by it. Does anyone else watch it? Is it a common thing for teens?
theymos's answer:
Ever single guy you've ever met does, regularly. Probably 3/4 of girls do. Don't worry about it.

Question:
how many times does a teenage boy think about sex in a day. im a boy, but its not like im going to count, but im sure some sad psychologist has, so im wandering, what are the guys findnings? jus curious
theymos's answer:
Not true. See Snopes:

Question:
ok, i have a few awkward questions about sex and getting pregnant and no-no juice, and etc.

first of all, is it possible to get pregnant without the man ejaculating inside the woman? meaning, if a man is inside a woman, but pulls out way before he comes, is it possible to get pregnant from the precome?

also, can you get pregnant from semen getting on your vagina, when the man is not inside you?

thank you.
theymos's answer:
To both your questions, it is possible, but unlikely. I don't usually answer questions like this, but I wanted to clear up the misconception that precum will get you pregnant. It probably won't; precum contains a very small amount of sperm, so the chance of pregnancy is between 1% and 4%. To put that in perspective, 1% to 2% of condoms are ineffective. Protection is always better, of course, for reasons other columnists will surely elaborate on.

Question:
is it unnatractive to guys if girls dont shave "down there"? i dont normally shave it all because it comes back all scratchy and it bothers me alot. i usually just cut most of it
theymos's answer:
Yes, most guys think it's unattractive.

Question:
14/f
i have never had sex, but i just think that this is kind of weird.

Why did people wait so long to have sex? like i know the average age is like 16, 17 nowadays, but in the olden days why was it so like freaking sacred haha?
theymos's answer:
Well in the *really* olden days, the normal age was 13-15. Then Christianity came along saying that you should be married first. In the beginning people got married at 13-15, but for whatever reason the age kept getting higher and higher; and it became the norm, and later the law, for you to marry at at least 18 years old. You should be aware that the US is very conservative on this, in many countries, especially ones where Christianity didn't spread, you're "legal" when you're 13. In a few countries, you're legal when you're 8.

Question:
do guys like it when girls shave.. like down there?
theymos's answer:
Yes, almost always. While they'll say they don't mind, guys really, really don't like that.

Question:
what is the age of concent in the us? and is it even if the other person is over 18?
theymos's answer:
Look at the bottom of this list, it's different for each state:
http://www.avert.org/aofconsent.htm
Both people have to be above the age of consent unless otherwise noted. If the age of consent is 18, 18-30 is fine, 17-18 and 16-17 is not.

Question:
okay these guys at my school have been asking everyone what milf means they know because they watched one of the american pie movies but i dont remember anything bout milf...can someone tell me what this means?
theymos's answer:
Mother I'd Like To F***. Generally it means an attractive older woman.

[view]  


Question:
"Most guys prefer completeley shaved," if not, will they find it gross? Or how about just a little bit of hair?
theymos's answer:
Less is better. Some guys will think it's gross, most will just see it as a slight turn off.

[view]  


Question:
I get horny when I see guys naked. I am not guy or anything, it just happens. Does this happen to you? Why does this happen?

-Thanks
theymos's answer:
I would assume that is normal for girls, but since I'm a guy, I wouldn't know. I recommend you not randomly choose columnists for a gender-specific question like this.

Question:
ok i know all about like what a girl goes through during puberty & all but what do the guys get if girls get periods??

theymos's answer:
Guys get nothing like that.

Question:
well one of my parents are a little technically challenged so they leave traces on the computer that are very easy to find. I was looking back in my history to find a page i visited yesterday and i found yahoo profiles of people in my state. Idk if they meet these people but i do know they talked to them. I installed a keylogger and saw a few convos that suspected it. Plus a webcam i've never seen which i can guess is used for. Should i bring it up or let it be?? Advice, thanks
theymos's answer:
You should probably not mention it, since it could make them angry. There's nothing you can do about it anyways.
