Yeah, in all seriousness, suddenly my Firefox is acting like it's just been brand new installed, when I've had it for months and months. All my links, auto logins, bookmarks, extensions, everything, it's all suddenly disappeared. It's not a disaster of course, god knows I never look at my bookmarks after I save them pshh, but it is an inconvenience. Like, now I have to actually remember my passwords for things!
Is this a symptom of something terrible, or some harmless randomness? Any way to recover all that mess without doing it myself?
ETA: Nevermind, it was something to do with some program automatically opening Firefox for me and when I closed Firefox and reopened it all was hunkydory. I'm leaving this post up instead of deleting it though because other people had the same problem...
I'm not sure if it's phonetic or not, and I want to make sure. It's a composition written by Albert Franz Doppler, if that helps.
and what was it really supposed to be about?
Oh and men if you'd like to add your fav scents for females that'd be nice too. I'd get my bf to pick something out for me but he's lazy and would probably pick something french whorey so...yeah. Thanks all. :)
Oh and in case no one wants to read all that: I'm looking for recommendations for women's perfume :)
What is your favorite music video?
- If you could be in any video, which one & who would you be?
Would you rather be well traveled or well read?
- Can someone be smart without being interested in books?
How many sex partners do/did you expect to have by the time you're 30?
- Is there a such thing as too many by 30, & does gender make a difference?
Have you (or anyone you know) ever run into your double?
(and don't geese mate for life? in which case, poor goose...)
She told me she's been doing it for the past 5 years, but it's been almost non stop for the past 5 months. She has a one year old kid, too. One reason she's given to me as to why it'll be so hard to stop... is because the dealer she gets this crap from lives just down the street. Right now, I am NOT at the point of turning my friend in. Right now I DON'T want to go telling her parents. She DOESN'T want to go for help. The only thing I can think of.. at this point.. is to figure out who is dealing it to her, and turn THEM in. I know.. I know.. if someone wants it bad enough, they'd find a way to get it. But, right now, I can't think of anything else.
For years.... yeeears, this girl has lied to be about things in her life. So, simply telling me she hasn't done anything wont be enough. And I'm not around her enough to make sure she's NOT getting anything.
It's gotten so bad that even her boyfriend (the baby's papa) called me to help her out. The only thing I can think of to tell her is that if she does this shit again, she's risking having her baby taken away. She told me at dinner yesterday that she has planned (note.. planned) to not do it anymore - starting today.
With that said, what the fuck can I do to help her out? Anyone been in this situation?
2. And are their any of these that portrait them as non-housewives?
1, 2, 3, go...
My roommate's boyfriend claims to be allergic to alcohol.
The one other person I know who claims this is a pathological liar, and the roommmate's boyfriend kinda seems to be one too(I don't care about your past lives or supposed medical knowledge, stfu).
Now, googling has lead me to believe that it's possible to be allergic to the ingredients in alcohol- say yeast, the particular fruit or grain the drink is made with, sulfites... and the people who had written into the site all had more hay-fever-ish type allergic reactions. Being allergic to alcohol itself is much less common and the results aren't really referenced.
the roommate's boyfriend claims to have the "omg who slipped a peanut into my brownie throatswellupdie" kindof reaction.
Anyone here actually allergic to alcohol itself? would that be the reaction? would he then also be allergic to any other thing int he alcohol family, like rubbing alcohol?
Or is he just bullshitting? what might be something to prove he's BSing? (something like how most people wouldn't think jello isn't a vegetarian food, something that has alcohol in it that he wouldn't have thought of and proceeded to consume and not die)
EDIT: I do NOT mean that I want to poison him. jeesus. I mean like... something that he's already eaten in the past, that I've seen him eat, that would say "hey, you're full of shit". Like if I caught him using nyquil or eating tiramisu, but something less obvious that he, in his lying, wouldn't know that he couldn't eat.
On why i give a shit: because with the other pathological guy, the thing that made him stop/slow down was "look. there is no girlfriend in africa. none of us are that stupid. and I just kicked your ass with the practise swords, so you obviously are not trained with real ones." and with a girl at my middle school, it was "bull shit, the CIA does not look for missing civilian middle school girls. Or the FBI."
I'd like to deal a little less with his bullshit on a day to day basis.
2. If you buy something that is $4.99 and you pay with a five do you wait for the change?
I bought a bottle of water today and the change was only a penny so I didn't wait and the man was like aren't you going to wait for your change?!. But another time when I was in 4th grade I waited for the change and the woman gave me a nasty look. I just feel weird waiting for a penny.
I have a tennis preseason match at 2:30 today.. but I also have a Forensics (speech & debate) officer's meeting at 1. Should I go to my meeting dressed in my tennis outfit or go dressed in regular clothes and before 2:30, home and change? I live like 5-10 minutes away from the school.
I'm asking because I have to read it for an English course this term.
What do you prefer (chicken/turkey.. that sorta thing)?
And why? I'm just curious. :)
I have just finished re-watching all of the episodes of 'Tales of the Gold Monkey', several times the main character (Jake Cutter) makes references to the book written by 'Haywood Floyd' (spelling might be wrong).
I am not able to find an author by the name of Haywood Floyd. Does anybody know if there was an author by that name? The shows implies that he was an adventure writer.
How would you react/feel if someone you recognize doesn't remember you?
first week of school- you meet someone in a once a week class and you really want to be friends with them.
you think then that you can only see them once a week.
then stroke of luck happens and you get to see them in a class earlier in the week.
but instead of walking out with them, you leave abruptly.
it's only later you realize what you have done.
now, im thinking no on this but- is there a short time limit that you have the option to start the friendship as soon as possible so that the next time they see you, they are thinking of a friendship?
or is it ok to wait till you see them later and now that you know what not to do, you can start the friendship then?
i know, i seem like larry david or jery seinfeld over here, but at least i'll know.
- If your spouse & 2 children were starving, would you steal to feed them?
- After you break up with someone, how long does it take for you to "get over" it? Equal time/Double time/Half time of relationship?
- Are you a giver or a taker? What's the biggest sacrifice you've made for a significant other?
2. What good books have you read lately?
3. What is your favorite book?
4. How do choose what to read?
Me, I like to read just about anything. Patricia Cornwell is a favorite. I like John Irving a lot. I like Harry Potter. The only think I can remember not likeing are the Stephanie Plum books. I hated those but I did read them.
I need some new reading material and I just don't know what's good out there. I have been reading the same authors for so long that I have lost touch with the rest of the world.
And where the heck is the "justify" or "align right" option on Word? It used to be up top with "align left" and "center", but they're not. :/ Thank you.
Edit: One more thing - I've heard you should keep it to one page, if possible. Can i reduce to 10 font to achieve this?
how do i know if i am considered a resident of philadelphia?
i am originally from seattle and am here attending a university.
this is my 4th year here, my 3rd in an apartment not on campus.
i am a registered voter.
I am currently living in London on a Working Holiday Visa. Since it will expire in less then a year, I would like to look into applying for a UK Ancestry visa but I am a bit unsure how to go about doing this. I have all the necessary documents but I do not have any idea where I am supposed to get an application or how much it costs to apply. And actually, I am not sure if I can do it here or I will have to go back to Canada to do so.
If anyone can give me some help/advise on the subject, I would be extremely grateful!
She's saying that if you apply early decision, you can't apply to other colleges because otherwise they'll drop your application.
Obviously, you can only apply to one school early decision, but I'm convinced you can apply to others as regular admission.
Please tell me I'm right?
2. In a public restroom that you enter regularly (work, school,...) do you go to the same stall time after time? What depicts which stall you choose?
3. Those of you who get along with either your mom or you dad, what do you think makes it easy to get along with them?
4. Those of you who get along with your siblings, what do you think makes it easy to get along with them?
5. What's your middle name?
I'm trying to make a list of necessities but I can't think of anything other than toilet paper and stuff like that.
and my backslash key :à
Does anyone know how to make it stop (I'd put a question mark here but I can't)
2. If you were given all of the money and materials it would take to explore/experience/travel in one continent during your lifetime, which contintent would you choose? Obviously it's pretty much impossible to travel and/or really, truly experience a whole continent in just one lifetime, but this is a theoretical question anyway.
3. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Or are you comfortably in the middle?
4. I just read Terry Pratchett's Reaper Man, which is part of his Discworld series. It's the only book in the Discworld series that I've read (it's also the only book written by him that I've read), and I can't decide whether I like it or not. One minute I do, the next minute I don't. Can someone suggest another Discworld title to read next, one that'll possibly get me more into the Discworld books?

Anybody have thoughts on cities in Texas? Houston, Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, San Antonio...
What is the best lyric search engine?
Also, what is the best way to quickly get rid of a sinus drip?
Apparently it's cosmetic surgery, and it won't be covered by OHIP. Can anyone explain why it would be cosmetic, when it's a lump that just grew in my face? It's not like I'm getting a nose job.
Also, anyone have a rough guess at how much it'll cost me?
Have you had surgery before? I technically have, I guess, to remove my wisdom teeth.
*Am I the only one who doesn't think My Chemical Romance is the greatest thing on Earth? Honestly, they sound just the same as every other band out there now, there's nothing unique about them...WHY does everyone love them so much?
Another random spiel of questions compiled from...oh god, let's not go there:
*What did you do right after high school? Go to a large school, a community school, join the armed forces, go right into the workforce, take time off? Anything I haven't listed?
*What made you decide to do this?
*Are you happy in your current job?
*If you could, would you change what you did?
I've kept photos, jewelry & other items...
Sometimes I still wear the jewelry or clothing.
My significant other knows.
- Have you kept items from your past relationships?
- What have you kept?
- Do you still use the items or are they packed in a secret/not-so-secret box?
- Does your current significant other know about the items?
- Would you throw the items out if asked?
- Would it bother you if your current significant kept items from their past relationships?
- Why do you feel the need to keep items from your past relationships?
