I'm usually great at taking pills but I have an insanely large uncoated pill I have to take that is going to give me difficulty.

What tips do you have to make it easier? What do you usually do if you can't swallow a pill? What medications are you on now?

Universal likes and dislikes

I can't think of anything that anyone unanimously likes.

Then I thought, "What thing do people unanimously DISLIKE?"

I thought "mosquito bites," but I'm sure there is some masochistic weirdo that likes to be bitten by mosquitoes and enjoys itching.

Do you think there is anything that EVERYONE on this planet likes or dislikes?

compleatly baffled

What is it about humans that makes them act/react the way that they do?
For instance, So many people in this world are completely hypocritical.. This girl I work with, who is on the thin side but is out of shape, told co-workers they needed to join a gym and loose weight.. these co-workers are at least 100 pounds over weight, but why would she act that way?
For another instance, So many people get jealous of each other for no reason.. and then they look down on a person for having what they themselves want.
Does anyone actually think about how they act, how they treat others?
Does anyone have any respect for themselves, for their fellow humans?
What ever happened to minding your own business and taking care of yourself and not worrying about what other people are doing?

I know it's a bit all over the place, but people are really getting to me today more than usual.. I seriously do not understand why people do things that causes negative energy to be spread around.. when the world really could be a better place, and all it takes is a smile.

One year anniversary

So my boy and I are going away this weekend for our one year anniversary. For the actual anniversary (tomorrow) I'm getting a box of chocolate covered strawberries delivered to him at work (is that too corny??) and I have a couple things to give him. For this weekend I have candles for the hotel and lots of sexy stuff to wear. Any other ideas?? I want this to be really special.

My mother just sent me two picture of ladies, asking me if I knew who they were.
I don't, but the real question is...

If I don't know them, and no one else in my family knows them, how did their pictures get onto her camera?

I proved a visiting manager wrong, after arguing with him for a decent while. Is this a bad thing?
(My manager was laughing quietly.)

If you spot a mistake in a contract, and you correct it, then sign it, is it valid?

What is protocol for washing an Ace bandage? (the two-inch wide roll)

I'm sure the package insert explained but I threw that away, and the bandage smells like feet (probably because I wrap my foot with it). I can't imagine it's a good idea to throw it in the washer and dryer, so I'll do it by hand but I'm just wondering if there's anything in specific I should know?

1 - What's the best way to cover or camouflage a bleach stain in a carpet? For what it's worth: the carpet's tan/light brown, the area's fairly large [~2ft x 2ft?], and I'd prefer a solution that's fairly cheap, if possible ($20-30 max) :\

2 - What's the one cleaning product that you can't live without, and why?

3 - What are your top 5 favorite alternative/rock songs from the early/mid 90s?

with a twist, she liked her men neat

snap, it's the PO-lice..wait. no. they have no idea.

How many people here steal regularly?(i don't mean when you were in middle school and you took that keychain that was just sooooo cool) From where? What kind of stuff, et cetera? Lastly- do you consider yourself as having a problem?

Collapse )

Just curious about the percentage of people who really do(and if so, what they take), as well as if you actually feel guilty about it.

Is there any site on the internet that is rather like Google Image Search but will allow you to search specifically for animated gifs?

Also, there was a website I used to have bookmarked that was a web-based animated gif editor (it let you resize them, add text, and a number of other things, without having to download a program). Anyone happen to know what I'm talking about? EDIT: Found it.

Anyone see NBC's The Biggest Loser last night? I must have missed something, because I don't know when the girls split into two "cliques". And when did Ryan start controversy? Confused...
Ahh! Babies!

ok i have this cute silk shirt that is dry clean only that i wore once and it got blue alchohol down the front. I tried wetting it with a wet washcloth with some shout on it and gently dabbing. It looked clean but when it dried, the stain was still there. Whenever I send dirty things to the dry cleaner, even when I point them out, they still come back with the stain. How do I get this stain out? its really noticeable and I like this shirt.

I was sent a letter by my school recently inviting me to join an International Honor Society, Phi Theta Kappa. Here is the blurb from the website:

Academic excellence is the primary hallmark of PHI THETA KAPPA. Students who have completed at least twelve (12) credit hours leading to an associate degree, have a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or above, and must enjoy full rights of citizenship are invited to join PHI THETA KAPPA.

Will this club really help me? Or look good on my college transcripts when I plan to transfere to the local state Uni? I want to go to grad school too, will they look at this as a plus, or just another greek club?

To those with experience with H.S.'s, they claim to offer a lot of scholarships. Is it true, and if so how easy/hard is it to get said scholarships?

Sort of inspired by the previous post about stuff that is universally disliked...

What stuff is the most medioXcore mediocre? Stuff that no one really likes or dislikes. Stuff that's not exactly good, but not exactly bad.

kids movies

If you were to, say, do a Awesomely Good and Awesomely Bad Kid Flicks themed movie night, complete with beer and popcorn... what movies - specifically from the '80's and the early '90's - might you select to watch? Bonus points for non-Disney-animation-esque flicks. Sorry, Fern Gully.

I'm bored and decided to watch music videos. Know of any interesting ones? What's the best one you've seen? I prefer something other than the typical band playing.

Do you know where I can find the music video code for Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Origin Of Love? Can't seem to find it anywhere.

music survey...

I've been made assistant music director of the radio station at my school.

For those of you who listen to radio shows in general, can you help me out?

We need to take surveys of what potential listeners would like to hear. The students on my campus are the most important listeners, but since we webcast over the internet, your feedback would be valuable to us as well.

So here's my survey for you:

1.) What are the top three over-the-air radio stations that you listen to?
2.) What are the top three genres you like hearing on the radio?
3.) Name three artists that fit the kind of music you like hearing over the radio.
4.) On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest), would you say you love going to live shows?
5.) What three genres of music do you hate hearing on the radio?
6.) Name three artists that define your answer in #5.
7.) On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest), how open are you to hearing new genres of music on the radio?
8.) On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest), how open are you to giving the DJ generous margin of freedom (as opposed to what he/she knows most people definitely want to hear) on his/her playlists?
9.) On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest), how eclectic would you say your music taste is?
10.) Open comment.

Please help me out.

I'm having trouble finding a book to read for my Senior, English IV class. I'm more of a sciencey non-fiction book reader and our requirement for the report is that the author must not be English/British and the book must be fiction, unless it's a biography.

Do you have any suggestions? For authors or books.

However, I am somewhat seduced by the ipod nano..


Should I get the nano?
And is there a market to sell a scratched up ipod mini?

At your age, how comfortable are you with sexuality (sex in general) in front of your parents. Like, whenever I'm watching TV and all of a sudden people are having sex or whatever, I get so embarassed and it's usually very awkward. I remember in middle schoool I would go to the kitchen and watch the "making out" from there. rofl. And then return when it was over.

How do you define culture?

(I mean this as in you, personally. I have been thinking about it a lot and am curious how people from a wide variety of backgrounds and educations define it. Feel free to say that you don't believe in culture and explain why not if that's the case.)

cliffs of insanity

omg nooooooooooo

I just turned on my TV to see what's on while cooking dinner. Flipped past ABC and noticed that they're airing the White Sox vs Red Sox game (I live outside Boston). Then slowly... my heart broke inside and I screamed "noooooooooooooo." The game runs until 10pm. The channel guide says that Invasion will be on after the game. My question is very important, life or death... WHEN WILL THEY RUN LOST?!

edit: was so distraught I accidentally posted this to my own journal first.

I can't see pictures from Photobucket that have been posted recently (on friends journals, in communities...) - yet others can... Any idea why this might be? And it seems to be pictures only uploaded from this place...

Questions about eyeglasses, eyes and office space

It was time to get an eye exam today. It had been 8 years since the last one, after all.

But picking out glasses is absolute agony. I ended up getting all of these options on a new pair of glasses (to be made some time next week), and I'm thinking I overbought. I'm light sensitive, so I got a pair of frames with those Transitions lenses in some "Phoenix" material with rounded edges and anti-glare coating. I was told that since I'm light sensitive, it would be a good idea to have Transition lenses while inside staring at the computer all day. My monitor is opposite the window in my office, so I get a lot of afternoon sunshine shining off my monitor. I also have some horrible fluorescent lights overhead.

(As far as I know, I can't move my computer desk without a big deal being made. I'd have to submit a move form to have the big huge desk and hutch taken out (if my boss is even OK with that) and to have some other furniture put in and my computer desk moved. I'd have to submit a maintenance request to see if I could get one of the light switches redone to just flip on half of the fluorescent lights. My husband doesn't even think that can be done, and I don't know that my coworker would go for that. I could have the window blinds cleaned (and stay away until the dust settled) and just lower and raise them when needed... if my coworker was OK with that.)

If you have light sensitivity, do you have a pair of regular glasses and a pair of sunglasses? Or do you have just Transitions lenses? I was told that I'll want to get a pair of regular sunglasses because the Transitions lenses just won't be dark enough for me, especially while driving in the car.

If you have Transitions lenses, how do you like them? Do they get dark enough to help your eyes, both indoors and outdoors?

What do you do at work to help with eyestrain, glare and excessive light? I'm looking for any and all suggestions!

How clean are your living quarters (with a quick description)?

"1" being the BEFORE status of a How Clean Is your House house (ie: You can't walk from point-A to point-B without breaking a leg), and

"10" being the AFTER status of a How Clean Is your House house (ie: So fresh n so clean clean...)

My bedroom's about an 8. Just some dust on the shelves, laundry waiting to be put away, and a couple things left on the floor.

How hard is it to change your handwriting? I never really thought about it before but I saw some websites that are promoting books and "grapho-therapy" things to change your handwriting (Yep, I know, they want money.. I'm still curious). Then I read something else saying you could just find a sample of any handwriting you like and start practicing writing like that and after a certain amount of time you'll be able to write that way. Has anyone tried this or known anyone who has tried this?

I can't stop thinking about video games

1. What video games systems do you own? Name all the consoles you've had over the years. Which did you like best?

2. What are your thoughts on the Nintendo's radical new controller?
Here's an article all about it.
And here's a promotional video of it.

3. Of the next generation of consoles (PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Revolution), which do you want to have? That Revolution has me pretty excited, but if I try it out and don't like it, I'll go with the Playstation 3. That powerful system is going to have some fun games for sure.

4. What games are you enjoying these days?

5. Which was better: the Super Scope or the Sega Menacer?
