relationships

Do you believe that:

a) good relationships are hard to find but you know you're in one when it requires very little maintenance or effort.

b) good relationships take work, communication and compromise and they're not always easy.

I know both of them can be true, but which do you think is more often true?

Second time posting today, because I'm cool like that...

I hate Moulin Rouge, the movie... loathe it, despise it... and I also really dislike Closer. Not sure why. Usually I can tolerate almost all movies and I love watching movies, but those two brought out some really horrible feelings in me. Can you see any connection between them that might be why I just hate movies like that?

Do you hate hate hate any movies that most people loved? Both of those movies are almost cliche with all the people who adore them, sort of like Garden State. But I loooooved Garden State! What the hell.

1) Anyone of you watched Murder By Numbers? My friend says that it was partially based on a true story. Is it? I just find it incredibly chilling that someone could think it fun to formulate a murder and plant all the clues and everything. (and Ryan Gosling had nothing to do with it, I swear)

2) How do you comfort a friend after she has broken up? I wanted to say, "I think everything will turn out to be ok," but I'm afraid it would sound too cliched, because I really could think of nothing else to comfort her.

Some dude/kid has locked his bike using MY wheel on MY bike... I have no idea how long it's been like this, discovered it yesterday. I usually ride my bike to work but I haven't been going this week and won't until monday.

I don't know what to do... I don't have any tools to break the lock, so I have asked my father, don't know if he can find the time. I could set up flyers on the doors next to me, but then... Then other people would be aware that I will break the lock and his bike will be left unlocked. I could lock it with another but then I would have to buy one and I see absolutely no reason for that. On top of that, what would I do when some kid comes to my door and claim that it's his bike and want me to unlock it?

Is it weird that I've never slept with a virgin, but the girls I have slept with have very little or no apptitude to sex(not in a snarky way, they really have no idea when it comes to sex)?

1.What color is your bedroom?
2.What color are the sheets on your bed right now?
3.How often do you change your sheets (be honest!)

My Answers
1. Purple
2. GoldenRod Yellow
3. Once a week

And Once More...

My last question was scoffed at, so now here is one for pure curiosity. As I am not a biology major, hopefully someone here will know this one and will not laugh at me for hoping that they do.

 

What energy is used to heat your body when you have a fever? Where does it come from? I understand that it is a way of warding off infection and is your body's way of detroying the invader... but has anyone here studied medical science or knows what it is that is responcible for that sudden heat surge?

(Hopefully that question is more in line.)

Oh, and while I'm at the medical stuff... What exactly causes leprosy (virus, bacteria)? How long was its process and what were the early symptoms? How was it spread? (air,water,waste...) How was it eliminated?

All I know is that it involves limbs falling off and flesh disinegration. Ew.

Okay, so over at sextips someone asked about sex on extasy (mdma). Well someone said: If you're talking about street pills it's not pure mdma. it's going to be cut with something. whether it be meth, heroin, or anything else. Now, I'm not into drugs or anything, but I find it hard to believe that extasy pills would be cut with heroin. Not to mention that some of the people said heroin was a very expensive drug to cut with E.
So my question, would extasy be cut with heroin? What about other drugs?
Edit: Wow Guess I was wrong xD Thanks for all your imput. I'd still like to know what other drugs are used.

Friends with Benefits

What are your opinions of hooking up with an ex-boyfriend/girlfriend? It's a bad habit of mine - one I'm trying desperately to break, with no luck. Any ideas, besides not hanging out with the person anymore? Yeah, I know that'd be the best solution, but one I couldn't follow through with.

I want to read some really good journals!

A long time ago I came across a website that was like a blogging competition, where people were nominated for having really good journals. There were different categories like humour, personal, motherhood, etc. I thought it was something like "bestofblog.com" but that website doesn't exist.

I like reading other people's journals if they write really well. I can't find any websites even remotely like this, the ones I find are all politcal journals.

Anyone have any website recommendations? I'm useless at google.

1. Do you like wrapping presents?

2. What gift are you most looking forward to giving this year?

3. If you live in an area that gets snow, do you clean off your whole car before you drive or do you just make little peakholes on your windows enough so that you can drive?



1. I LOVE to wrap presents. I went out today and bought 10 rolls of wrapping paper - at the dollar store and other places where it was on sale. I also do the whole bows, ribbons, name tags, etc.

2. I'm not sure yet. I just bought my 9 month old nephew a fun stacking stars light up thingy. It's like the ultimate emo baby toy.

3. I am crazy about cleaning off the whole car. I even make sure to wipe off my licence plate. I hate people who have snow flying everywhere when they stop and pull away.

Um.. does anyone else get headaches and nausea from the scent of most perfumes and colognes? I don't really use it much (body sprays are what I usually use) so I just noticed this.
And I found this when googling.. dunno how legit it is but yeah. Interesting.

How many hours of sleep do you need a night? I know, the average person is meant to get 8ish hours but I find I need more. What do you need to get a good sleep?

Is it possible to wake up with an alarm and actually feel refreshed rather than sleepy and groggy?

I need to get up and out of bed at 7am, if this was you what time would you hope to be asleep for?

Also, can anyone give me any tips on how to waken up easier in the morning?

Thanks so much!!! I've just started a new job and I need this!

Where did the name Jolly Rancher come from for the candy? I've been Googling this for the last few days, but can't find any explanation. And picturing a jolly rancher is just a funny image, so I really want to know where it came from. =P

And what is your favorite flavor? I love lemon, but they're usually harder to find. I hate green apple, I don't ever eat those.

Am I the only person who finds The Black-Eyed Peas irritating? Their music just... irks me, somehow.

EDIT: some of the old stuff, sure. "where is the love" is a pretty good song. But "My hump" makes me want to hurt someone. With a mallet.

I got a spare battery for my phone, and because I've got mad skillz, I left it in a pair of jeans that I then tossed into the washer. The battery looks okay for the most part, just a little discoloration around one of the prongs.

Should I try using it, or will my phone explode?

I have to paint a picture of Bob Dylan and I figured I'd listen to some of his music while I did this. I've never really listened to much of his music so I was wondering what do you think would be the best album to listen to?

Excited for Christmas ... 24 days! Cheers!! :-D

1.) What's your favourite Christmas song? And by whom?
2.) What's your favourite Christmas/Holidy movie?
3.) Do you put an Angel, or a Star, on top of the Christmas tree?
4.) How about Nativities ... ? Do you have one? Is it big or small? Elaborate or plain? (Our Nativity from last year - And that's just a small section of it!)
5.) And, finally, early Christmas presents ... Do you like them? Do you like knowing what you have ahead of time, or do you want it all to be a big surprise?

As for those who don't celebrate Christmas ... Do you still partake in the activities - either at school or with friends, etc? My roommate, for example, is Jewish and is still decorating for Xmas and taking part in a Secret Santa.

Hello all:

I need another word for "jackass" or "right royal prick." Something a little out of the ordinary, but not too swearwordy (fuckwad, while acurate, doesn't go with the tone).

I'll take anything you can send at me!

1. Are there any foods that you don't like by themselves, but you enjoy when they are mixed together, or mixed with something else? For example, I don't really care for ham or pineapple by themselves, but put them together on pizza and I love it.

2. If you could have picked your own name, what would you have picked?

3. Are there any names you just can't stand for one reason or another? For me, it's the name "Guy".

There is a cat that keeps coming around my house because it doesn't have a home of it's own. I've been leaving it milk and tuna because sooner or later I would like to find it a place to live. How much/how often should I leave it something to eat or put milk out there? I don't know..I have a dog not a cat so I'm not sure of how much to give it. Don't want to make it sick or anything. And it isn't a kitten, but it doesn't look like an older cat..and it's pretty normal sized, not too skinny or overweight.

Electronic Drum Sets

Hey there. Just wondering, do any of you play drums and have experience with electronic drum sets? My church is looking to purchase one (budgeted around $2000) and I'd like to know if anyone has a particular favorite to look for or something to avoid. Thanks!

A friend of mine is doing a paper, and I'm not entirely sure of the topic, but she needs to know if Indians (from India) go on vacation. We tried some google searches, but basically they were all of the travel websites trying to get you to go to India. We asked Jeeves and he was even less helpful... Any ideas on good google searches or actual results? She says all she needs is a yes or no, but she should probably have a source to back that up.

Thanks!

Music Question

For my Music Appreciation class, we have to know some snippets of various songs for our tests. I've heard a lot of the songs we've studied prior, whether I've played parts in band, sang parts in chorus, or otherwise come across it (like in a commercial or something).

I read recently in a school magazine that there is a debate that keeps getting hotter and hotter. It's on the evloution issue. Here's the thing: the debate is whether to teach evolution solely, not at all, or teach both evolution and Intellegent Design. Both the evolution theory and intellegent design have logic, evidence, and many supporters. Neither can be fully proven or disproven. So here's the question:

In your opinion, should they teach evolution solely, evolution and intellegent design, or none of the above?
