opposites attract?

i read in my psychology book that, really, it is found that the saying "opposites attract" is really not very accurate at all, and that, rather, people are generally attracted to others who happen to look similar to them. for me, this is true. i've noticed that guys i'm attracted to also have dark hair and blue eyes and are built similarly to me...only they're guys, haha. is that weird or what?

have you ever heard this before?

Harry Pittman~sobs uncontrollably and sinks down into the corner of the room in a fit of tears~
Jola Miamigga told Harry "it could be worse. you could be a rabid pig in the outskirts of Middletown, Nebraska chasing a dust devil that stole your mother's tupperware."
Harry is bewildered and says to Jola "pigs can't be rabid, jola dear. rabidity is only for the marsupials of Marsupials Inc., home of the rabid marsupials and founders of the Marsupials Against Wallaby Abuse Foundation (MAWAF). Didn't you get the memo?" Jola is amazed and replies with "no, i didn't. but in nebraska there is a rabid pig chasing a dust devil. just be glad it isn't you."
Harry says "it's a marsupial disguised as a pig, then." He refuses to believe her. Jola states "no. a pig."
Harry looses it. "PIGS CAN'T BE EFFING RABID. IT'S NOT POSSIBLE. ONLY MARSUPIALS!!!!!!!! ONLY MARSUPIALSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. BROOKE SAID SO, DAMNIT!" Jola tries to stop her, using this line "one pig. he is ancient. he invented rabies. he gave it up to the marsupials because he didn't want to hurt the other animals. the marsupials were mean to little nebby, the nebraskan pig. he makes snack cakes."
Harry calms down and says "i suppose that's alright, then... just as long as it's only marsupials from here on out."
Jola says "of course."
Then it hits Mr. Pittman "oh! thaaaaaaat pig. Isn't he also the one who invented the holiday Snarklegrummut which was later overridden by the Cabbage Kings of the midwest Russia?or is that a different rabid ancient pig?" Ms. Miammiga is glad. "no, that was the same one. He was also auctioneer to the communists of south switzerland."
"RIGHT!" exclaims Harry.
Jola says "and he built that bridge across the sea of nigeria."
And happy little harry pittman says "and the liaison between don silvestre alguilar and his son paco, during the French Revolution and the Rennaissance and he constructed the ihungry tower just south of the eiffel tower!" Finally, Jola knows all will be well and yells "yes! and he followed the yellow brick road, only to find it lead to a group of insane babbling fleas who wouldn't stop beeping and tooting." Harry is a little confused until he realizes he knew of this. He says "the same fleas who wanted him to run his hands... err... paw things... thru their fros?" Jola has never been so glad "yes! while bouncin' o-24" But her joy is quickly ended when Pittman says "madness. this is sheer and utter madness." She wonders if he is calling her a liar. she questions "is it?"
"yes it is" harry says. she is still worried so she asks "why?"
Harry says "because the uzbekistanians told me it was." Jola wants to cry. The uzbekistanians are mean people so she tells Harry "but they are against the ancient pig. and his cousin, the spaghetti boar."
Harry Pittman retorts with "they aren't against the cebu, though, and the cebu is the pig's best friend." But Jola Miammiga knows better and says "but he is a dirty liar. he really stole the tupperware. I SAW IT." boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooeeeeeeeeeeebbbooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. this is the emergency broadcast system. This is only a test. Please remain calm while we ensure that you are recieving the proper safety ...thingies. yes. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. wait. ok. we now return you to your previous program.
And Jola looked at Harry and they both smiled. The end.

what is your underlying modus operandi?
do you always follow it?
is it there, in the back of your brain, influencing your actions? making sure you don't go out and commit an act completely in opposition to it?

new here.

my computer is disliking me so i have to repost this.

how would you feel or react if your girl/boyfriend promised to go somewhere with you--even insisted that s/he would enjoy going--but then about a half an hour before it deciding that s/he was going to spend the day with a friend even though s/he promised that s/he'd go with you?

Hey all, I have sooo many records and they're taking up space that I need, I heard somewhere that I can hook my turntable up to my computer and burn copies of the records, can someone tell me how to do that?

Moral obligations ...

Okay, so I am currently in a Parasitology class at my college. Well today was the last test - after which I found out something disturbing and wanted to ask everyone what they thought I should do.

The class only consists of ten people. Today we had a lab practical and were given the whole class time to study. Nine of us studied for the majority of the time before the test while the tenth showed up minutes before the test started. When it was over I was talking to a friend in my class and told her how I did not know how he was doing so well since he never comes to class or lab and never studies with the group. She told me that she saw him cheating during the whole practical. Everyone had to get up to get different slides and most of us left our tests at our desks and apparently he was walking back and forth looking and copying answers. She went further to tell me that she has seen him cheating on previous tests.

I asked her why she never reported him and she told me that she thought the repercussions would be to great and that people always cheated now and again. I am livid. I want to turn him in but she explicitly told me not to and I would not have known about it if she had not told me. Plus, she is a good friend of mine and I have no wish to offend. I am unsure about what to do ... though I must act quickly because final grades will be posted soon. I am afraid that it is not my right to tell since I did not see him ... but I worked hard for that class and knowing that someone else is taking advantage of me irks me. Greatly.

I have a poll on my journal but I can't on here. So I must simply ask for your thoughts on my actions. I really want to report him ... but I don't want to overstep my bounds.
