OK thanks to all the users who posted the name of Boys in the Hood by Dynamite Hack. So, now I've been listening to it and i wanted to know if anyone else noticed the same thing as I noticed:

At the end of the song, they play the same guitar riff as in the end of Blackbird by the Beatles and they sing Punk ass trippin in the dead of night homies scored a key is gonna fly, punk ass fly instead of blackbird singing in the dead of night....
Its exactly the same as the Beatles' Black bird. So anyone else notice this? Is there a significance to why they make allusions to the Beatles? Anyone know?

Men and crying [Jul. 27th, 2005|12:16 am]
The Question Club

[idlewitness]
One for the men: When was the last time you cried? What were you crying about?


Ladies: Pick a man in your life (so those without a husband/boyfriend can answer for their dad or brother etc). When was the last time you saw him cry? What was he crying about?


For everyone: What's your opinion of a man that cries? Does it make you feel uncomfortable?

[mood |coldcold]

Thanks to all who tried to help me in my panicked state the other day. I don't have it quite worked out yet, but I feel better...a little better, anyway.

Anyway, random questions.

1. Who is better--Three Dog Night or America?

2. Can you go to the bathroom at work? I couldn't poop there for the longest time until last night. It was a relief.

3. If your blood aunt marries a man who becomes your uncle, and then divorces him, is he still your uncle?

(this question is especially important.)
4. If you found out a family member failed to claim assets on a bankrupcy, and you KNOW that this person still has those assets, and got them on a credit card that was charged off, so essentially getting them for free...would you rat them out or try to blackmail them? Would you do anything?
ETA: it's my dad, who has failed to help me out with anything when time after time my mom has. He got two Harleys and a Camaro after the bankrupcy while my mom, brother and I have all struggled. What do you think I should do?

i've always wanted to go on a road trip but i've also always wanted to go on a roadtrip alone so i can do everything i want to do and not worry about what others want to do.

1. has anyone gone on a road trip by themselves?
2. if so, where did you go and did you enjoy going by yourself as opposed to if you'd gone with other people?
3. did you have a destination in mind or did you just wing it?
4. where are some places you've gone?
5. if you had to convince your parents about going alone, how did you do it?
6. what are some ways you saved money?

Aaargh - social skills help needed

One of my colleagues' dad is very ill. I don't know her that well, so I've never felt comfortable asking her directly how he was doing because I didn't know whether or not she wanted to talk about it.

Today she asked me how my week-end went (I told her last week it was going to be a special one), so I felt I should show some interest back and asked her how her dad was. Turns out he's not great. Completely stumped for anything useful to say, and since I had just told her my week end had not ended well, I said: "well, there are worse things than one-week relationships", meaning "I bow down to your greater suffering" and sounding like "you make me talk about my pain, here's a taste of your own medicine, beeatch".

I don't know what I can do/say now to fix this. This is like something out of Scubs...

Any thoughts?

What kind of sickness could I possibly have?

I have an intensely sore throat (hurts to swallow, woke up in the middle of the night because of the pain, etc.) and that's it really, besides an occasional odd ear feeling (as in plugged-ish / slight pain at times). I am feeling perfectly normal otherwise. I checked my temperature and I don't have a fever and I'm not any more tired than usual or anything.

Could I possibly have strep throat? I thought this was a possibility, but I always thought other symptoms occured as well.

Could I have swimmer's ear? My step-mom said it's a possibility because I swim often with the girls I babysit (3+ times a week), my ears are effected and ears and throat are connected by the eustachian tube.

What do you think?

Also, what do you do to calm a sore throat? So far advil has been working a bit and tea and popsicles as well.

Thanks in advance!

ps. I'm going to the doctor's tomorrow. I just wanted to post to see what you guys think. :)

2. How often did you/do you have birthday parties?

Battery Mystery:

My 3 month old laptop battery meter used to be able to fill up to 100%.

3 days ago, it was at 100%.  I never unplugged it.  Yesterday it only went to 99%, & today 98%.  ???

I've never had problems getting it charged to 100% until the last two days.

Body Mystery:

How does body image get formed in our society?

How would you feel if images of fat(ter) women became the norm in our cultural media?

So, instead of Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston & Angelina Jolie, you'd get size 10 women:

Image + lots of comments here.

Last I heard, the average American woman wears a size 14.

I told myself I'd get another ear piercing done when I went to my next concert, which was... two weeks ago. I was so busy that I forgot to decide on what I wanted, so I decided to wait until my next concert in November to get it done.

First of all, is it a good idea to get an ear piercing while on vacation? Is there some risk of a horrible reaction or infection? I've already got one hole in each ear that I had done when I was 6, but I just wanna cover my bases.

Second question: What should I get done? I'm thinking a cartilage piercing, but I'm not sure. Do those hurt a lot?

ok-

so the movie "Sky High"-I am watching an interview with kelly preston and she said there are cliques and bullies in the movie- just like high school.

but wouldn't superheroes teach their kids to be good to other people,etc?
so the whole theory of this movie having the same social trappings of high school is wrong?
and that would only happen with like a villian high school?

also, theres a fat kid who has super speed.
isn't that impossible for the person with super speed to be fat?
