how many significant others have you had on average per year since you were 13? (your age minus 13, number of significant others, divide significant others by age)

me: 1/4

also, does anybody know the rule thingy for dating people who are older or younger than you? it was some weird thing like add your ages, divide by 2...if it's a certain number, they're too old or something...? i don't remember...anybody know what i'm talking about?

I don't want a debate, just some links/facts:

does anyone know how many (documented) abortions there are each year in the United States? I'd be especially interested in the amount over the past 5-10 years. thanks a lot!

Chicago smells...


I'm new, so heres my very first question...and its kind of...odd


I live and go to school in the city of Chicago. I have found, most often early in the morning, that the city (especially my neighborhood--Little Italy) smells just like burning/burnt brownies. This smell is not localized in just this part of the city, I have found it in a few different parts of the city. So my question is, what causes this smell, and why?

okay, Dr. Freud, can you figure this out?

I used to be really into dream analysis, but I can't figure out ANY of this.

Last night I had a dream that one of my male friends at school raped me. I was terrified to tell anyone, and I found out that I was pregnant. What on earth could that possibly mean?

And on a completely unrelated note: I have a pair of dark denim jeans that I absolutely adore. But the thing is, I've washed them so much they've begun to fade. Can I actually purchase that super-dark blue dye that they use on dark denim (the almost-black dark blue) at a store so I can dye them back? If so, about how much does it cost, and what precautions can I take to prevent future fading?

what is it called when someone only eats natural foods like fruit, vegetables, and nuts? is that "vegan" or something else?

and they don't drink anything except water, right?

also, what are other natural foods besides fruit, vegetables, and nuts?

thanks a lot. :)

What do you think is the point of scheduling all of the sociology classes for the fall semester during the same time period? Every one of them meets between 10 am and 12 pm. There's no way to take more than one! What are sociology majors/minors supposed to do?

Serious question, complaining aside, why do you think the university does this?

Opening a Can of Worms

One of my boyfriend's students today called Oprah and Beyonce "Whores of the White Man."

Do you think Oprah and Beyonce cater to white audiences? Do you think the fact that they are rich and educated have anything to do with this kind of response by young black women? Do you think that they are doing a disfavor to the black community? Is this a valid analysis of them?

Scanner Question.

See, I have a bit of a dilemna here.

I've had this scanner--more specifically, a Mustek 1200 UB Scanner--for about 3 years. It works great, and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

I got a new computer last December with XP installed, whereas my other computer had 98 installed. When I tried to install it told me that my Scanner CD (what I use to install the scanner with) would only install under NT, 95, and 98.

Is there any way I could install this scanner under XP? I don't really want to buy a new scanner because the CD won't install, so I'm looking for any way to go around this and get it installed and running ASAP.

kill bill and shogun assasin

i've been watching this movie "shogun assasin" since i was about...11?12?
it's one of my favorite movies..

so I went to watch kill bill, And..realised how similar it is..

and i watched kill bill 2 last night, and then there was a reference about it! omg!

does anyone else think kill bill is similar to shogun assasin?
you know, the whole vengence thing. lone wolf vs shogun, kiddo vs bill? :P

Still kill bill 1 & 2 are the best movies i've seen for a while :)

but it just seems so similar to Shogun assasin :(

Eyeglass cleaner

For those of you who wear glasses, what is the best cleaner you’ve ever used?

Call me crazy, but I can hardly function if I have even barely smudgy glasses. Dust is fine; smudges are not!

So far I’ve been pretty happy with antibacterial gel and window cleaner, but the best thing I’ve ever used is a spray sanitizing lotion we have at work. I think it’s also used in the medical field. Unfortunately, I can’t really take that home since it’s in a large bottle.

If anyone has any other suggestions that are more accessible and/or portable, I’d be happy to hear them. :-)
