Ala, when I type 668437 for movies, ala "Would you like to go to the movies?" it comes up first as "Would you like to go to the mother?".
How much can I expect charges to be if I take my rat to the vet for an ear infection? This is my first time dealing with small animal illness, so I really have no idea what to expect.
I was going to buy a PDA but I don't think I want one anymore. I don't know enough about them to decide. Any suggestions of some other little gadgets I don't know of? Anything but an iPod or something that's only used to store music and videos. I'm looking for something that's more of an internet connector/organizer..I don't know if there's anything else out there, the PDA is kind of big and they seem very business related?
Not too long ago, I opened up an additional savings account under my existing checking account, and even though I checked "no ATM card at this time" they sent me a new one anyway. The number is exactly the same on both ATM cards, the only difference is that the new one is the gold visa check card and the old one is a regular visa check card.
So should I (a) activate my new Gold Check Card and destroy the old one, (b) destroy the new one without activating it and continue using my old one, or (c) keep both open?
Are there any drawbacks to destroying your original ATM card that I don't know about?
For those who use and love CertainDri:
1. How much does one bottle of it cost?
2. Did it sting when you first started using it?
3. Did that sensation eventually stop?
4. Do you use a deodarent/ant-persparent during the day? Which type/brand if so?
Why does medical advice state that you should see a doctor if your fever is accompanied by a headache?
So there's this game online that I played a long time ago, and I beat it. Now I'm wondering if I can still beat it, this was like a year ago. My question for you guys is.. can you help me locate the game!? The game is that you're in like.. a house or something, and you're trapped in each room, and have to use what's in the room to help you get out. The first room is a bedroom, and like all that's in it is a bed and a dresser, and you have to find the key. It's really tricky. That's about all I can remember. If you could help me find it, it'd be awesome. Oh, and I think the opening page for the game is on a starry background. Thanks ahead of time.
I'm looking for some fairly flat origami I can make to put in Christmas cards. I don't want anything TOO simple but nothing incredibly difficult.
Any ideas? Even if you know of something that's flat I can try and find a pattern if you don't know where one is.
In windows XP, when I go to the start menu, then view all programs, they aren't in alphabetical order. They're basically listed in the order in which they were installed, which isn't very helpful. Is there a way to change it so that they're sorted alphabetically?
EDIT: Problem solved. Thanks!
My friend (who does not have an LJ) needs some help with All My Sons by Arthur Miller.
1. Why does Kate say to Chris, “Dad and I are stupid people. We don’t know anything. You have got to protect us”? Does this sound like Kate? Explain.
4. Is there any truth in people’s accusation against Joe? Why wouldn’t people let it go?
19. How does Kate treat George? Why? Are there hidden reasons from Kate’s side? What does this further reveal about Kate’s personality?
26. Why does Joe offer Ann’s father a position after he comes out of jail?
31. How does Joe persuade George to believe that it was his father’s fault? How do Joe and Kate try to calm George?
65. What does Joe’s following speech to Ann foreshadow? “… You get older, you want to feel that you accomplished something. My only accomplishment is my son. I ain’t brainy. That’s all I accomplished. Now, a year, eight months, your father’ll be a free man…”
Perhaps some non-trolls could help her out? She was absent the day was discussed in class. For the record it's not homework, it's a study guide because some people actually like to be fully prepared for their tests.
Hello. I've got an... odd question to ask.
Okay, here's the deal: I don't celebrate christmas. I used to, but things changed and I don't do it anymore. However, just about everybody else in my circle of friends and family does. I didn't celebrate it last year, either, but some folks still gave me presents. When I get their gifts, I feel sorta guilty. I mean, I don't celebrate it, so I don't give anything in return except for a heartfelt thanks. I feel like I should be giving them something, too, but holiday obligation-wise, I suppose I'm not really obligated to give anything. It's a confusing and uncomfortable feeling. Thus, I turn to you, the studio audience at home: what is the right thing to do in this situation?
Hi, quick question, if you have a free lj is it possible to change the thing where it says x comments, leave a comment? If so, how? Thanks :D
This isn't really one particular question but more of a grouping of problems that need advice on: Renting an apartment or studio, community college, financial aid, and getting a really good job.
Okay, so I'm a senior in high school. In stead of going the traditional route of everyone in my school [either staying at home and going to a local community college, or SUNY] I want to move downstate [to Poughkeepsie, NY] and go to a community college. This means that I have to rent. I looked on Craigslist through the NY listings, and I can't find a 1 bedroom or studio for less than $900, but there's very few listings. Should I look elsewhere? If all else fails and I have to look for a roommate, where can I look? Any other ideas for living there cheap without living in my car? I'm also looking for a field/position that I can go into as a HS graduate that pays the most. Any ideas?
And any hints, tips, what have you about any of the above would be so appricated. Thanks.
maybe, is there gonna be someone, who is the one, that saves you? is there even someone out there like that for you?
So I bake cookies every year at Christmas. This year, I'm going to make the standard chocolate chip cookies, but I want to try out a new recipe or two. So give me some suggestions, what's your favorite kind of cookie? :)
Do you think your mood is just a matter of personal discipline? Or lack thereof?
Meaning, do you think if is yoru choice to be happy or sad, mad or clam, so on and so forth; and the people that are mopey all the time are just "emotionally lazy".
1. Do you send
Christmas Holiday cards?
2. If so, are they specific to a certain Holiday or are they Happy Holidays/Season's Greetings-type cards?
3. About how many
Christmas cards are you sending this year?
4. What kind of soap do you use?
7. Do you use a squeegee*?
* EDIT: Loofah, not squeegee... lol Where was my mind at there?
is there something or someone who completes you? if so - who or what is it? if not - why not?
Okay, so I've been trying to figure out this crimson room thing, right? Well in the first room, what's the code?? I went to the site and got the numbers. Every time it tells me it's hte wrong numbers! BUt it's not! SO frustrated!!
Are there any good Photoshop tutorials you guys know of online that teach you how to convert a photo to black and white? (More than simply desaturating or converting to grayscale, which, obviously, I can do, but that's the extent of my Photoshop knowledge with B&W.)
What furniture do you have in your bedroom? Describe it for me if you like.
Guys; When you pee in a normal toilet, do you do it directly into the water, or do you pee on the side of the bowl to avoid the splashing sound?
Im the latter
1. How long do you usually use/leave your laptop on?
2. What surface do you usually leave your laptop on? (your lap, a desk, a special laptop stand to keep it cooler, your bed, etc..)
3. Speaking of the special laptop stand, do you think that's the best thing to get to keep it from getting too hot or is there something better you'd recommend?
Sorry, I'm a bit laptop dense. So far from what I've researched about a stand, it *seems* like a good idea. I used to not use my laptop too much, and when I did it would be for pretty short amounts of time, but right now my regular desktop is messed up, so until I get that working I'm using my notebook. It gets really hot really quickly, I've been using it on a desk which apparently lets it get hotter since it can't let the air out through the bottom.

1. Do you pay for any virus/spyware/etc scanners and firewalls you use, or do you use free ones?
2. Aside from the above and your internet service, are there any programs you use that you pay for (whether a one time payment or a continued use payment)? What are they?
When considering renting a room in a house with a bunch of other people (they live there, i want to move in), what kind of things should i be sure to find out?
I know most of the basic things to ask, I just want to make sure there's nothing I'm forgetting. =]
Ok, so in a discussion about relationships my male friend said that it was unrealistic of me to think that there is a man out there that won't cheat. Simply that there might be men out there not stupid enough to tell me/get caught.
1. Opinions?? I'd love to hear from the men...
2. How old are you?
3. How many serious relationships have you had and for how long?
4. How many times have you cheated?
b) Do you think you would cheat again?
Be honest!! Email me with the answers if you don't want to be identified. firstname.lastname@example.org
What do you think about low ride jeans - on guys?
my mom's coming home in half an hour -- i got the brilliant idea to make dinner.
i've got 30 minutes... what should i make?
Okay, this is the knowledge that I have in my head:
Diamonds are made from carbon pushed up really tight so the bits o' carbon form weird bonds and tada, diamond.
Other gemstones form similarly, and impurities give them their colour. So, amethyst is (something? quartz?) with a specific impurity that makes it varying shades of purple. Sapphire is something else, and its impurity makes it blue. Emeralds, rubies- the impurity gives it its colour and how much of it determines how dark.
Based on this information, I can see how a sapphire or emerald or whatever could be made in a lab- get the base material and the proper impurity together, squeeze, done.
HOWEVER! apparently this information is wrong somewhere, because this flyer for some jewelry store advertises lab-made *pink* sapphires. and by what I've been told, that's not possible, because the impurity that makes it defined as a sapphire also makes it blue.
And then there are blue diamonds, different colours of aquamarine and such...
So: What's wrong with my information?
Or are they(specifically the pink sapphire people) full of shit?
Or is it some of both?
You know that phenomenon that is lamented by "nice guys" everywhere: how women seem to get involved in relationships with assholes or abusers while the "nice guys" usually get overlooked. Do you think it is true that most women (straight women, anyway) tend to gravitate toward asshole boyfriends? And why do you think this happens? I once saw someone saying in an LJ thread that this happens because most women seek men like their fathers, and there are a lot of bad dads out there. What do you think?
Almost every time I yawn, my jaw pops (always on the left side, if that matters), often loud enough for other people to hear and be creeped out by it.
My boyfriend says that his jaw used to pop sometimes but that after he had his wisdom teeth removed it stopped. I've never had problems with my wisdom teeth, so I guess that's why I still have mine.
I find it hard to believe that the jaw-popping is wisdom-tooth related.
Have you ever experienced something similar that would suggest the two things ARE related?
There's a blizzard occurring outside my window right now. How much snow has to be on the ground for school to be canceled?
I'm in Ontario by the way, so it may be different from other places because we're so used to the snow. I don't have the slightest idea so any guesses would be good.
What would be a good videogame for PS2 to get for an 18 year old boy?

I see those Christian Icthus stickers (the little fish thing) a lot in traffic, but sometimes I see the "Darwin-ized" ones (the icthus with little two legs at the bottom) and me and my friend were talking about what those meant. Is it supposed to be funny or is it a serious way of saying that someone believes in Jesus and Darwin's theory of evolution?

What are your favorite aphorisms? Why? Any you would reccommend me using in a paper? :p Thanks :)
I'm just a bit freaked out right now.
A few minutes ago, some guy called me. Said his name was Tom. I had just woke up and wasn't thinking too clearly, and just sort of assumed he was some guy my Mom knew from work. He asked me if I was working, and I said no, I'm going to school, but that I was home for the holidays.
Turns out he was just some random stranger.
He kept telling me not to freak out, and so forth. He said he was 'lonely' and just looking through the phone book, and that my name just 'jumped out' at him. He asked what I looked like and how old I am. ><; So yeah, a little freaked out. I told him not to call anymore. I'm worried that he might be a robber casing the joint or even worse.
So, my question is this: What should I do now? We already keep our doors and windows locked at all times, and I'm going to start carrying my laptop and DS (most stealable and portable iteas) with me, but...
If I don't like ice skating,
What is there to DO in Winter??
Edit: If there's not really any snow, it's just super cold.
OK so..... I was watching this show and here's what happened:
A girl in high school painted a picture of a woman with her breast exposed. Not really pornographic in nature, but there's a boob and she put it up in the hallway of the high school to display.
Principal says take it down, not appropriate.
Students rebel and put pieces of paper over their boobs and crotches and hold demonstrations and contact the news about how their high school censors student art.
Yes, I'm totally against censorship but its a school and these kids were talking about how their rights were being violated and it was so unfair. I think that in schools, censorship is probably necessary at times and good. It needs to maintain a safe learning environment and if something is not a safe learning environment, it should be corrected. Certain things just aren't appropriate at school. Also, i think the kids just liked jumping on the bandwagon and drawing attention to their breasts by wearing huge pieces of paper over them. Except for the artist, i doubt most of those kids give a crap about artistic expression. I think they were overreacting because its fun to create drama when you are sixteen.
So, my question is: Do you think censorship is appropriate in schools? NOT whether its appropriate in the gov, but in schools,specficially. Why do you think this? Where would you draw the line between what is appropriate for school and what isn't?
I've never had a problem with my wisdom teeth, so I still have them. Right now my left side gums where that tooth would be is REALLY swollen. I can't close my mouth because my top teeth/gums hit it. It hurts to talk to because my tongue rubs against it. So on to my question... Is this something to do with my wisdom tooth or me not flossing enough? It's the first time this has ever happened.
Ok, so tomorrow I'm having a Christmas party for my kids at school before Christmas break and I want to play some fun or young Christmas songs for them. I'm downloading them as I type this hehe..Any ideas? Think elementary school..thanks a bunch.
Two seniors in my class/school/grade have died in a three weeks time.
Which leads me to ask... what do you think happens after one dies?
And... are you afraid of death?

Somehow it sounds right and wrong at the same time to me.
