1. What key on your keyboard is faded the most?
I have a new one, so they're mostly all there. I remember specifically on my old one the N key was the most faded. I just thought of asking because I noticed that my new keyboard's spacebar is already smooth in the exact place where my right-hand thumb hits it. I'm so interested in how we wear things down, slowly.
2. Does anyone know if the pressure of growing wisdom teeth can ruin (to the point of, say, actually cracking) nearby teeth that get in the way?
I was wondering if anyone knew any good download sites for spyware removal.
I know in the past I have been to sites who do it for free. I would love it if you know of a good free site but a reasonable "pay" site would be fine.
Any help would be appreciated!
If you've ever had a beard or significant facial hair, what sort of steps did you/do you take for cleaning/grooming? Do you condition it with hair conditioner, etc.?
Just because I am bored, and I love mine!!!
I have two cats, both female.
Tora and Penny.
Do you have any? What are their names?
A heterosexual couple who has had anal sex but not PIV sex (with each other or anyone else). Virgins?
how old is too old to go trick or treating?
(im 19 and im going tonight :p)
did your parents used to steal the good candy from you?
have you ever beaten someone up and stolen their candy?
have you destroyed and property on halloween?
what are you dressed up as if you did dress up?
does you butt hole ever itch?
are you sick right now?
how many hours a night do you sleep?
I usually work Saturdays and then have Tuesday & Wednesday off. This past Saturday they didn't need me to come in because our work bin was empty.
I *can* come in on Wednesday to make up the hours but I can't decide whether or not to come in.
Reasons not to work Wednesday:
- They really don't need me to come in because this week's paper is so skimpy, so by asking to come in I'm not really showing "work enthusiasm" it's just obvious that I'm concerned with the money (even though realistically that's why anybody goes to work, haha)
- Wednesdays SUCK. They are the most disorganized and chaotic day, and being unfamiliar with Wednesday routine, it's musch mre stressful on me than it needs to be.
- I have a lot to finish on my room and I only have time on my days off so this bedroom renovation project is taking a million times longer than it needs to.
- I don't WANNA go to work, dammit! haha
Reasons to work Wednesday:
- Noticable difference in paycheck; which with the afforementioned bedroom project, I could really use.
I think a friend is giving me a kitten for my birthday next weekend. From his hinting it's a 6 week old girl from the humane society.
What should I name her?
I like cute names like "Nacho" or "Peanut". I want to stay away from people names.
I want to thank you all for your advice/suggestions etc., they've all worked out very well.
So I did my first professional bouncing/security gig Saturday evening, it was a big success.
I did so well, in fact, that I've decide to create a business out of it.
For the business name, I want to incoporate my name and the first 3 letters of my last name are DOG.
Any witty suggestions?
Was anyone else thoroughly unimpressed with the Da Vinci Code?
1.) Have you ever stolen anything?
2.) If so, what have you stolen(If you're chummy with the five finger discount, just give a list of what's noteworthy :-P)?
3.) What's your opinion on theft/when is it acceptable, if at all?
Can someone explain the American education system to me? I've got a really big headache.
I basically thought that it was pretty much the same as the UK one - starting school (ie, learning the three Rs) aged 4/5, compulsory education ending at 16, and those who want to progress to university leaving at 18.
But I have a friend who moved to America, and she's going to university aged 17 - and she told me that this is normal for Americans. Then I read an article about the ages different countries make their kids start to read at, and it said that American children start at age 6.
I'm very, very confused.
Silly question (maybe?)
1) Is there anyway to make temporary bangs? I don't think so, but I am looking for other ideas and suggestions.
2) At the very last moment I decided to head out to a bar tonight with my friends dressed up as Boo (from Monsters, Inc.). I am thinking of going to ragstock and trying to find an extra large shirt (for a night shirt) etc. Is there any other distinguishing things I could do to add to the costume in order to get the point across that I am Boo?
3) What are ya'll doing (or did) for Halloween?
I am going out to a Bar but weary of the fact that I will be drinking. Halloween for me has been a pretty rotten holiday, but I threw up Saturday night so I think the worst is over.
Thanks in advance!
I was just thinking about how ICQ was my instant messenger of choice about 7 years ago, but I haven't really used it in about 5 years. Does anybody still use ICQ?
For those of you who quit, how long on average would it take you to complete a 3'x4' quilt done in 1" or 2" blocks? It would be a custom design I am making and not a kit (so I would have to cut all the squares myself). It's going to be a Nintendo charachter quilt, probably Donky-Kong, if it matters (pixels = quilt squares :P). I'm not planning on hand-quiting it either, I would take it to a shop for the finishing.
I've never made one (but do a lot of sewing otherwise), and I am planning one for a Christmas present, and had no idea if I have enough time left or not. What say you, quilters?
So, I haven't done anything at all whatsoever for Halloween for the past 9 years or so, but I know that tonight, since I now live in a very kid-ful building, that if I want to maintain my sanity tonight, I will have to give candy.
1. In case of leftovers, do you buy candy that you like and will eat later, or candy that you have no particular interest in, just so you won't be tempted?
2. Do you dress up just to answer the door or is that kinda lame?
3. What's the average age cut-off for trick-or-treaters where you live?
4. Where do you buy your candy? (i.e., the supermarket, walmart, target...)
5. Do you think I should stay home or just avoid everything and go to my in-laws to veg out with a book and have dinner in a neighborhood with no children?
This is one hell of a question, but do any of you know the "quick" method of boiling an egg. or just how to boil an egg in general?
And Is it not sad that a person who knows how to make baklava, Pasta Primavera, and brownies from scratch does not know how to boil a damn egg?
does anyone know what the rule is for dropping pell grant sponsored classes?
like, what class is it ok to drop but you can't drop a certain number of hours?
I am thinking about dropping my bio class(its 4 hrs).
Next year I'm thinking about buying a condo or townhouse (in the central TX areas, if anyone wnats to know).
So far, I am stumped on how to do so. So does anyone have any tips on how to research this, which kind of realty(?) people to call to research, any good or bad experiences, etc? Any other information would be very greatly appreciated.
I am very new and inexperienced about this, and I'd just want some tips to get started. Thanks.
The other day I was looking at a comics section and I saw a strip I really wanted to save, but since it was someone elses paper I couldn't. The strip is One Big Happy (I'm 99% sure) and it has the girl and the boy(or maybe is was someone else, not too sure) in the mall watching people in costumes go by and seeing what they were. Well 2 girls walked by and the girl said something like "they're going as sluts" and those girls said something about making fun of their school clothes.
I've looked online, and I can't seem to find it anywhere! Can anyone help me?
I can save stuff to my flash drive okay, but when I try to print stuff off of it on campus, it gives me a printer error. If I email the documents to myself, I can print them, so I'd assume it is the flash drive. Is there any way to fix this?
can anyone recommend cool websites that sends free catalogs? i just love looking through catalogs and not buying anything, heh. doesn't really matter what the products are, but i do like clothing catalogs and toy catalogs.
someone gives you $200. they insisted that the only way they'll give you this money is if you do not spend it not rent, bills, etc. you HAVE to splurge and spend it on yourself. what would you buy?
I know not every country (and not all states here in the US, for that matter) observes Daylight Savings. So, as if this wasn't confusing enough as it is...
If you're military and stationed overseas, do you change your clocks back, too - even if you're in a country that doesn't observe this practice?
Who's the oldest person you've ever been attracted to? It can be someone you know, a stranger you've seen, an actor/musician/celebrity. Also I'm not talking about seeing a picture of 24-year-old Elvis Presley and thinking he's hot... basically are you presently attracted to anyone significantly older than yourself, and not attracted to the way they looked when they were younger? Example: Many young women of today are all hot for Sean Connery. I'm not. But I did have this wierd thing for Marc Alaimo in his Star Trek characters, and he's almost 40 years older than I am. He's gotten a lot more wrinkly lately so I don't know if the attraction still stands. But it's recent enough.
What's your costume?
(I am almost certain no one has asked this yet, astonishingly, but even if they have, well hey, why not ask again now that more people have picked them out presumably? hehe)
I am moving to Canada in about a year I live in North Crolina now and i was wondering if anyone have any information that they think i should know such as things i will have to do to move there, change in currancy, mannorisms, suggestions on where to move, things like that. Or if anyone knows any good sites or communities that may help me i would appresiate it thank you.
Who do you have a crush on?
I have a few: The woman in the icon (Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney), a cashier at the grocery store a block-and-a-half from my house and a friend of my wife's (and my wife knows this - we're very open about that stuff). There are probably a couple dozen other fleeting crushes that I've had in the last few months or so, anyway...
This may have been asked before but I don't remember it.
1) What do you use your livejournal for? (journaling, just reading others' journals, writing about politics/opinions, etc.)
2) If you use it for journaling, how well would you say your journal reflects who you are (on a scale of 1-10)?
3) If you use it to write about politics or opinions, do you do it for yourself or to try to get the word out about some cause..?
Does the hymen have a biological purpose?
Girls: Do you expect a guy to pick you up at your door and drop you off right at your door?
Okay, working on a paper.
"(name of place) is accredited with The Accreditation People."
how do I not use accredited for that verb? "is with the accreditation people"? "Is set up with the accreditation people"?
yay for vocabularies. thank you guys.
I'm not sure how old everyone's children are here (and a whole lot of you don't have kids, I know. But please read on anyway and give me your opinion) Anyway, my son is 2 and I have another one on the way. I've begun sort of thinking about school for the kids and I am so stuck.
I'm not a big fan of our city's public schools, I would prefer a private but non-religious affliated school. Problem being, the average tuition per year for those schools is about 13,000. So I'm going to have to play a little give and take here. Granted, I certainly have some time before I have to choose, but this got me thinking- how do other parents make their final decisions on school?
So parents: How did you decide where to send your kids?
And everyone else: What kind of school did you go to and what did you like and dislike about it?
(BTW- thanks to everyone who has or will answer. I could use any and all advice and viewpoints.)
Pretend you're a tourist:
If you saw this sign outside a restaurant, what would you think it meant?
2 hot dog all dress + frites + liquer $3.99
Note: if you're a Québecer, please don't answer because you'll ruin my fun.
***EDIT: Well, that was fast! It's 2 all dressed hot dogs (relish, mustard and cole slaw), fries and a soft drink :)
The long and short of the story: My mother shut my door too hard. The knob on the outside doesn't work (hasn't for months now), and basically, I'm locked out of my room because the knob won't turn on the outside and the hinges for my door are on the other side. The pins and screws are also on the other side of the door. This side is just...blank.
I've been hammering, sawing, prying, everything in my power to get this fucking knob off. I don't want to ruin the door or my molding (that's why I haven't just sawed a big giant hole AROUND the knob or stuck a screwdriver in the jamb), but I'm running out of ideas.
I've basically got a doorknob with some of the casing removed and there are two little holes on the sides, but I don't have anything to fit in them. My little saw isn't working when I stick it in and try to saw off the part that connects the knob, and it's been about an hour and a half and I'm exhausted.
How do you suggest I get this damned knob off and get back in my room?
"Truth and Beauty"
What is this book about? I need to read it as a memoir for college. Can someone please give me at least a paragraph synopsis about what this story is about? What is the premise? What does the author try to prove?
Any information is appreciated, thank you so much!
A little help from the history folks in the audience, please?
When and how did logical/very rational thinking become so much more valued than the arts in US culture?
(If your'e wondering, no, this isn't for homework.)
Edit: When I say "logical/rational thinking", I mean stuff like how science/math majors are seen as better than majors in the arts, ie. "I'm a liberal arts major. You want fries with that?"
Am I going insane?
Is there a word that starts with O and means to banish or kick out?
Sometime to the tune of "oustrize" but I can't spell it at all, which is why I can't use a thesaurus.
Do you ever have a question you wanted to ask here, yet when you come to update, you've forgotten what your question was?
What's your opinion on People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals?
Freedom fighters? Nutjobs? Don't care?
How do I get nail polish out of jeans? It's black nail polish, regular blue jeans.
Besides nail polish remover, which I'm going to try :) (thanks to the suggestions!)
So, what are you handing out to trick or treaters?
And those of you going out with your kids (or own your own), are you dressing up to?
Will massive amounts of fabric softener work on a rough itchy synthetic sweater? I got this awesome rainbow knit sweater thing from Goodwill and the tag is gone so I don't know what exactly it's made of, but the threads seem like plastic. It's really irritating my skin though. Probably not because it's used or anything (I've washed it in a regular washing machine many times before). What will make it softer/less scratchy? It's almost like what happens when you machine-wash a wool sweater.
It's 6:30 here in Indianapolis, and I have yet to see ONE trick or treater. Is it because I live in a townhome rental community? But I know there are lots of kids here, and we're right next to a residential area.
When I grew up in WI, pretty much anytime after dark was fair game. But, nope, nothing.
Where are all my trick-or-treaters?!
So, who else is not into this whole Halloween thing?
So, tomorrow I have a paper due about comprehensive sex education, and why it should be taught in schools. This is all fine and dandy, but... I can't come up with a title for the paper. I used the infamous Salt N Pepa song for the poll I conducted for the paper, so now I want something fresh for the title.
Anyone got a title I can use?
This is random, but I need it for an oratory I'm writing.
What is the appropriate age that children have lemonade stands?
Is it like the 4th grade?
Could I use a pot to cook something inside of an oven? Would it be okay, is there anything that my prevent it from cooking evenly, or burning?
I'm in the middle of my exam week right now and facing a dilemma. After a geological exam tomorrow till noon, I have Wednesday off, Physics on Thursday 9am-12pm and Calculus on Friday 9am-11am.
* I was very good at physics in high school but the sheer chaos of engineering babble and the occasional equation in my current textbook (written by our professor) daunts me to no end. I haven't really spent a lot of time on it up to now and don't really know, realistically, how long it'll take me to prepare for it properly (though I've been told it's very doable once you get past the chaotic babble).
* I've spent quite a bit of time on Calculus and am not quite at exam-level yet, but think I will be with just a little more time
* I'll have to complete both exams successfully eventually
* If I fail either exam I will have to retake it either in January or next year.
* I study considerably better when under signifigant pressure (like now) than otherwise
* Assuming I take both exams, I have almost two days to prepare for Physics, and almost one day to prepare for Calculus
* Assuming I only take Calculus, I will have almost three days to study for it but will have an extra exam during my next exam period, which not only means loss of study time for other exams due to studying for it, but also loss of the day before all the rest of my exams due to taking it. Retaking Calculus would mean doing it at the end of that 3-week exam period, which would suck as it would screw up the last week and a half, which is otherwise exam-free for me.
Should I skip Physics? Or should I take the risk and do both?
Have you heard that Cold Stone Creamery finally has their Cake Batter ice cream again? Are you as excited about this as I am?
Does your computer have a name? As in, a name that would show on a network?
My computer is named Drexler. I don't know why, but that name popped in my head as I was driving it to my dorm. My previous computer was named Camden, because that's my favorite name.
What would be an interesting topic for a side Physics research project be? Or an interesting side project I could entertain myself with? I'm a little bored waiting for the next project, so I want to give myself something to do in the meantime
What humor rating would you give each of the following? (1 = laugh your ass off funny, 2 = funny, 3 = smile, 4 = lame/not funny, 5 = offensive):
Animals doing cute stuff:
Knock knock jokes:
1. Do you pronounce the 't' in 'often'?
2. What single word would you use to classify people who overuse the word 'totally'?
3. Did you eat too much candy today?
4. How often do you do laundry? How many loads do you usually have?
5. If you had a sardine-can-sized room, would you rather have a bigger bed with no floor space or would you rather have a smaller bed so you could still have floor space?
6. What tastes good on tomatoes? I've never liked them before and now I can't get enough of them and I don't know what to put on them.
OMG there is a mouse in my room! It's about two feet away from me, digging in some trash on the floor. WHAT DO I DO!? I'm so torn, because I don't want to handle a live mouse, and I don't want to live with one, and I just happened to be tinkering with my new airsoft pistol when he showed up.
I need input, fast!
[EDIT] Thanks for your input guys. The mouse is outside. All is well.
If you could write an "informative" essay about anything you so desire, and hopefully interest the minds of twenty-five 18-26 year olds (who tend to be a bored, simple lot), what would you write about? Anything at all. And this topic will be used for a 5-7 minute speech as well.
Who wants to proofread a college essay? :)
It's cute! So you'll be entertained!
What book is it that the main character refers to "my huckleberry friend"? After I saw these lines in a poem, it's really been bugging me.
How would I go about getting screencaps off of a DVD?
I can't hit Print Screen or C, the image is black when pasted into Photoshop then. And I can only view it in Dell Media Experience because of some stupid copywright protection thing, so getting them in BSPlayer, Windows Media Player, or Real Player is out.
okay, i really just want to be calmed down at the moment and am hoping i am freaking out for nothing!
the details, my brain is too frazzled for me to make a paragraph...
-i'm going to study abroad in spain from january-june.
-i need a student visa and will be applying at the consulate in boston.
-i need to make an appointment at the consulate, i was hoping to just go and get it on monday, but i just found out that i need the appointment... do you think that i'll be able to get an appointment on such short notice, given that the visa dept. is only open for 3 hours a day?
-do you think it's likely that i'll actually get my visa in time for me to leave on january 5th if i do get to apply on november 7th?
on a happier, more exciting, less crazy note:
who here has studied abroad in europe (or even more specifically spain) and was it everything you thought it'd be and more?
I saw this on OKCupid.com and I thought it would be a good question to ask:
Would you date someone who used to have a problem with cutting themselves and have scars to prove it?
