starpower! second generation

Uh...

Yeah, um, anybody who could help me out, I would very much appreciate it. I'm looking for an icon I saw a while ago, just because I wanted to show it to a friend ... it's a picture of Cookie Monster and the caption says, "Shut the fuck up!" or something along those lines. Does anybody here have it, or know the person who does? Obviously, if anybody uses it (which probably won't be all too likely), they'll credit. But I just wanted to show it to a friend for a laugh.

Again, any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Grill?

Really in a hurry...

What do you suggest using to light a grill when I'm out of ignition fluid?

Plus all the shops are closed and I can't afford to buy anything anyway, not until I have my book.

Something I can find at home then.

Edit:
All solved. Got the huge stick of wood I needed to burn thinner (at 2am) done. Wasn't a grill used for cooking food anyway ;)

Diabetes?

Can anyone gimme any quick diagnoses?

I piss probably fifteen to twenty-five times a day, not much time in between. Thing is, I don't get a lot of fluids; mostly a bottle of Gatorade here or there. I know this is a sign of diabetes, but then again, I'm a hypochondriac.


And what if I get really poor blood circulation in my legs. Like, they give out easily and fall asleep in positions that body parts wouldn't regularly fall asleep in. Again, another sign of diabetes.

1. At a social occasion with music, how long does it take to get you on the dancefloor?

2. How do you prevent morning breath (aside from brushing the night before)?

3. How do you drink your tea / coffee (i.e with sugar? milk? something else? nothing else?)?

4. If you like doughnuts, what is your favourite kind?

Final Exams

How much time is reasonable to expect college freshman to prepare for a final exam? If you're in school, how many hours do you usually spend studying for a final? If there are any other instructors out there, how long do you expect students to study?

Cats and Dogs...

Hello.
I'm moving in about three weeks, it's a four hundred mile drive from point A to point B. It would be easy, but I have to move my cat and dog. The dog has always been easy to just put in the car and drive, my fiance takes care of him in the backseat. The cat, however, hates going in the car. She's only been in the car four times, when she came home with us, when she was fixed (there and back) and when we moved to the house we are in now. The cat and the dog, Freya and Eeyore respectively, don't always agree with each other, but they can tolerate each other for about a minute. This is all leading up to two questions... What should I do with the two critters in the car and how should I let them explore their new house? For the cat, I was thinking of drugging the cat up, putting her in her crate with a towel that had my scent and keeping her in the front seat with me.
I will be grateful for anyone with advice.

On black Friday, I stood bright eyed and bushy tailed at circuit city and now I have a brand new beautiful laptop.

With my desktop computer, I never used any form of virus protection and occasionally scanned with ad-aware. Then again, it's had its share of kinks and I've done my share of reformatting.

I'm pretty good with not downloading too many things and keeping my computer clean, although I do download music off people who upload onto yousendit, megaupload, filefactory, etc, on LJ mp3 sharing communities.

What virus protection programs do you recommend, if at all?

Why is the urge to straighten?

Today I was at a local mall and there was this kiosk there that was selling ceramic hair straighteners. I have curly hair. It doesn't always look great, but today it's looking pretty okay. (reference: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v466/zanycharm/me/me016.jpg ). This salesman would not leave me alone - he practically attacked me with the hair straightener.
Is that really weird or am I overreacting? 'Hey, what nice curly hair! Let's squish it between two steaming hot ceramic plates!' I understand that he was just trying to sell his product, but this is not the first time something like this has happened. People always pressure me to straighten my hair, to let them straighten my hair, etc. Do you do that? If you have curly hair, does this happen to you? I'm just trying to understand, here.
Also:
If you've seen Walk the Line, how long did it take you notice that Joaquin Phoenix was wearing color contacts? I noticed pretty soon, but only because I love brown eyes and I noticed that he was looking really good and then the connection was pretty much drawn. But my mom didn't notice until the very last scene, so?

A Strange Question, But...

Does anyone know a website dedicated to the world of Minority Report? Like the advanced weapons and technology, and the whole futuristic look. Or if there isn't such a website, is there a website that predicts how the world is going to be like in the future?

Identical plots

Did you ever notice that the movies The Three Amigos and Galaxy Quest, have the same plot line?

Group of actors are down on their luck.
Subjugated group seeks heroes to overthrow tyrannical oppressor.
They discover movies of heroes and go in search of them not realizing it is a movie.
Heroes accept task not realizing it is the real thing.
Climactic moment of truth makes actors decide to become the real heroes.

Can you think of any other movies that are just remakes of the same plot?

Drama?

Do you like LJ drama? (not the comm/website; actual comment/post bickering) Why or why not? Do you ever start drama? Is it ever on purpose?

I personally think it's hilarious, every time, and I love to read people arguing. It's a rare thing for me to start any, though, so I don't get to indulge in it very often. Which brings me to my next question:

Are there any comms out there devoted to indulging in drama? I used to read brutal_honesty when bored at work just because it amused me so, but it seemed like mods kept drama mostly under control (banning trolls and whatnot). Are there any communities where the whole point is to basically flame and argue?

I want some advice on what I could do to my hair...it's not that I hate it, I'm just bored with it. It's black, shoulder length and has an irritating kink halfway down, so it's neither wavy nor straight. Here's a pic: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/joe_cool_lemming/blah.jpg

So yeah - what could I do to it? I'll probably get it done after Christmas when I have some money, so any ideas or suggestions welcome :)

I really should know this... But I seem to be having a blonde moment.
If I wanted to make a present possessive form of a name ending in 's' (for example: James) how would I go about doing it?
Would it be: James'
Or would it be: James's

When you think about, do all your past boyfriends/girlfriends all tend to be the "exact" same type.
You know, how some people are only attracted to one set stone "thing."
Hope this makes sense??!

1. Have you ever boiled a can of condensed sweetened milk and made caramel icing? How long did you boil it, and did it turn out nicely?

2. Do you enjoy the sensation of having your head scratched?

3. Is there such thing as an enjoyable, inexpensive gift for someone who you hardly know but want to thank this holiday season? Any ideas? (other than a cocoa sampler? I probably wouldn't mind getting nice cocoa, but maybe that's just me.)

How much do you spend on groceries per person per week for your household (in USD)? Do you eat out a lot, or mostly cook for yourself?

So far, what movies do you think will be nominated for this year's Oscars?

Starbucks

Hey, I'm going to Starbucks tomorrow and, having never been there, would like some suggestions on what tastes yummy.
Specifically, what tastes yummy and can make me buzz like a hummingbird.
I'm fond of Moolattes from Dairy Queen, so if they have anything like that that would be cool.

1. Is it a faux-pas to wear eye makeup if you're also wearing glasses? I keep hearing different opinions on this.

2. Should I buy a paid account? The ability to make polls is enticing but I'm not usually the type to spend money on internet things.

3. Where's the worst place- city/state/country/whatever- that you've ever lived (not just visited)? Why?

4. For those of you who don't live in North America, have you ever visited the US? What surprised you about it? Answers from the opposite perspective would be neat, too.

1. Do you refuse to shop at certain stores or buy certain products? (and I don't want to hear about vegans not buying meat or animal by-products. That's obvious.)
2. Which ones and why?
3. Do you ever make an exception?
4. Do you look down on people who DO buy from those stores or buy those products?

Why is evolution such a big deal now? It's like the return of the damn Scopes Monkey Trial!

Lock picking!

I don't have a key to my own mailbox, and I really REALLY want to get in there. My roommates both have keys but neither of them are home right now. (We really need to leave at least one in the apartment)

Yeah so my netflix movies are in there and I'm bored and I would really like to watch the damn things. So anyone know how to pick a lock? It's one of those small locks with the medium tiny keys. I'm no expert on locks, so that's about all I can tell you.

computer case

My computer case is t3h stupidest case ever. The second of the two optical drive bays still has the cover in and I can't figure out how I'm supposed to remove the cover. It's connected by tiny tabs of metal on each side but I can't cut through them with a knife and the cover certainly doesn't pop out. So how the heck do I remove the cover?

Also, would I be right in thinking LiveJournal and every site largely populated by Americans has been quiet this weekend because it's Thanksgiving? (I'm in Australia.)

Please include how you define an LDR. (Do they never see each other? Do they see each other once a month/week/year? Did they start out as an LDR, or did something happen to change it into an LDR?)

Okay, so I "dated" someone online. But I was just a little fling to him. But it turns out the person I once went out with has a serious girlfriend. I did not know this until we had broken up and I had moved on. But I feel bad for this girl because he was unfaithful "with" me so to speak.
