Have any of you ever been hazed? Like for a greek organization, team, etc?

I joined Phi Theta Kappa in college and they made us wear license plates around our neck for a few days. If one of the members caught you without it, you had to do something very embarassing in front of everyone. Pretty tame, I know.


So, been hazed?

(X-Posted)

Many times I've wanted to say something to my fellow New Yorkers, but I've held my tongue for fear of how they would react or irrationally retaliate.

Better to let them be than to be physically harmed or threatened.

Non-New York friends are often surprised at my restraint.

Do you speak up?  When?  What do you say?

Question inspired by NYT article.

(copied and pasted from http://scrubs.mopnt.com/scripts/scrubs104.html)

Carla: I like to wait. I like a guy to want it so bad he basically thinks he isn't gonna get it ever.

Elliot smiles.

Carla: [continuing] Then when he's lost the will to live, that's when I jump him.

Elliot: So, how long does that usually---

Carla: A month, maybe two. What about you?

Elliot: I like to use sex as an ice-breaker.

Carla: Ah. And how's that working out for you?

Elliot: I guess I don't have what you would call high self-esteem.


So, having recently been dumped for not "hiding the crazy" by a guy who was more coy than I about going all the way, I'm starting to wonder whether I should use Carla from Scrubs as my relationships coach. But is it realistic - and I don't mean because she's a fictional character but because, for instance, playing hard to get when you're nowhere near as attractive as she is might be counter productive.

Opinions from men particularly useful.

I have a pretty good Fuji Digital camera. It used to work with PSP7, where I could aquire the images and play to my heart's content.

Now, all of a sudden, it tells me (when the camera is hooked up and powered on, and put in PC mode) that my camera is either "not hooked up to the computer or not powered on". I know damned well it's both.

Any ideas?

Anyone have any product recommendations for WiFi antennas? I'm looking to boost our signal up to my grandmother's house (about a quarter-mile up the hill, maybe?). Currently, it seems to get a signal about half way up the hill - pretty much once you clear the couple houses in the way of a direct line-of-sight. Would something like the Super Cantenna do the job?

Or, alternate question.... Is it even possible?

What are the top ten best things that have happened in your life so far?

edit // another question: does anyone know how the game/conundrum Black Magic works? There are two people, while everyone else is just watching; person #1 picks an item in the room and tells the watchers which one it is, while #2 goes away so that they can't hear. #2 is called back, and starts asking "is it ____?" and picks items in the room. After a few tries, #2 picks the right question.

Im getting my laptop this week for school and I want to have a list of everything I will need for it, so I can get it all before I move. Im mostly going to be using it in my dorm, basically as a desktop.

I know I need a USB mouse (I hate the stupid lil pad thingies on laptops)
A carrying case...
possibly a usb hub...
A chill mat, I have a tendency to leave computers on and I dont want it to overheat, and suggestions on brands, types etc etc?
Anything else I could possibly need? Or want?

any suggestions on brands etc etc would be appreciated also.

german food [Jul. 31st, 2005|08:37 pm]

[sekaijuuni]
In a couple weeks, I'm going to be traveling in Germany (specifically, Köln/Cologne and Dusseldorf). There are very, very few Germans where I live, though and consequently, I've never tried real German food. I don't even know where I'd find a German restaurant so I really have very little idea of what I should expect.

I've only really heard about schnitzel, knockwurst, bratwurst, and beer. Could you guys tell me a little bit about the food I might find? You know, names, what's in it, how it's prepared, how it tastes, what you'd recommend, etc.

I'm not a picky person at all -- I just want to know what's out there so I'll be ready to look. Thanks!

[arewar]
Does anyone know any easy to understand guides to ripping a DVD into a playable movie? (.avi, .wmv, whatever file type.) Or can anyone explain how?

I've tried guides and I've always had to download a 100 programs and convert it 20 different times. I know I'll have to do a good bit of converting one way or another, but the guides I've found are absurdly complicated to understand.

Thanks.
