Question for the Vegetarians...

So, on the radio this morning (in the Half-Assed News) they were discussing this possible invention. You take a starter pack of cells and stick it into a machine (about the size of a coffee maker), turn it on, go to bed, then when you wake up in the morning, you'll have fresh sausage for breakfast. And it will grow more than just sausage - steaks, chicken meat, ham, etc.

Here's my question: since this meat is grown from a starter pack and isn't taken from an animal, would you - a vegetarian - eat the meat?


Edit: We are going under the assumption that the cells used come from actual animals. The cells being obtained through a blood sample - so no animal is being killed, and except for the prick we all feel from the needle, no pain involved. Under this assumption, one animal could help feed millions without ever dying.

Hey guys,

Does anyone know of any writing groups in Vancouver, BC? Or of any LJ communities for writers in Vancouver?

I'm looking to join a writing group, and I've found lots of writing group communities for places in the States and the like, but I can't seem to find any for my area.

Thanks!

Edit: I did manage to find one, Vancity_Writers, however there are only 7 members and the last post was in March of 2005. Needless to say, I'm hoping for something more active. Thx!

[mood |worriedworried]

Umm, I know this is REALLY hard to try and decide over the internet without pics or more details, but if someone could give me a general idea of How Bad it is for your car to catch on fire, that would be super. My husband just called to tell me his 91 Explorer caught on fire and melted some of the stuff on top of the engine (oil cap and the like). After I was done demanding to know if he was ok and being assured he was, I started trying to figure out if it's worth trying to fix.

My friend's car caught on fire once because of a headlight and she had it fixed even though it was old, which makes me think it might not be that big of a deal, but I don't know if she had a friend who could do it for free or anything.

It's just my husband JUST got transferred and we REALLY need our 2nd car more than ever now and we were about to move into a house so even if it's relatively cheap to fix (which I DOUBT), I don't know if it would be worth it on a car so old. But we can't afford to really get into a newer one right now with all the other stuff that's going on.

Please send me some good news? :/

Are you...

1) An early bird or a night owl?
2) Organized or disheveled?
3) A picky eater, or do you eat almost anything?
4) A Movie buff, or a music buff?
5) Prone to using post-its, or a note pad?

Me:
1) Night owl. I have a Happy Bunny mug that says "Mornings suck big time." Said bunny is crying.

2) VERY organized. I get spazzed out if I don't have things organized the way I want them.

3) I'll eat *almost* anything. Just DON'T put mushrooms or asparagus in front of me, because I'll ralph on you.

4) I don't get to see many new movies, and I don't really listen to new stuff on the radio unless I'm at work. I'll say movie buff. Unless you want to talk about some Aerosmith. ;)

5) Post-its at work, note pads at home. There's only so much info you can squeeze onto a post-it! (This also makes me want to quote Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion.)

I watched Capote last night.

The ending scared the crap out of the novelist within me. The outcome projected the absolute greatest thing and the absolute worst thing that can happen to a writer; Writing something considered the greatest book of its time, and losing your mind and your self in the process of writing said book. I am officially shaking in my booties.

Did any other writers get the same reaction? If not from "Capote," than similar uninspiration from anything else? Has anything ever completely anti-motivated you to write?

Second question: What does motivate you to write?

* Talking while at a store being helped by a salesperson and expecting them to keep helping while they talk

*People who are glued to their cells. Unless there are extenuating circumstances, there's no reason to be on a phone for 10 hours a day.

I'm going from Germany to America for three months, and I have a voltage question.
I have an iPod that I'll want to be charging frequently throughout the trip. The only device I have for charging my iPod (nano) is a USB chord that plugs into a port on the computer, not an outlet in the wall. I have a friend who has something different, she calls it a voltage adapter (not an outlet adapter, we each have one of those) and she says it converts voltage.

My question is, will this chord that I have allow me to plug my iPod into a German computer, or do I need to get a voltage adapter to plug my iPod into the wall?

I know that I already posted a question once today, but that was a good few hours ago, so I think this will be okay.

Again, it has to do with WoW (sorry!), so if you're knowledgeable on the game (or any MMOs in general, really), please take the time to help me fix this?

I tried to download the latest patch because the Blizzard Downloader was doing basically nothing. I got it off of Yahoo! Games. I moved it to the appropriate folder, but found that when I tried to play, the Blizzard Downloader still kept popping up. I double-clicked on the file, only to find that it was unable to authorize the patch, so it failed. Is there any way to fix this (preferrably without downloading it again)?

I'm getting pretty desperate. >_> I know one of my alt's servers is up and I'm pretty anxious to play as I haven't today.

Thanks a whole lot. ♥

[explain_things]
1. Have you ever heard of turning two cigarettes upside down when you open a pack? According to my friend "one for luck, one for fuck."
I've googled this but I haven't found anything as I was unsure what to google. I've never heard of it but my friend claims it's common knowledge, and even that I don't really smoke I should have known.

2. Would you feel bad buying cigarettes for someone if they were for some reason unable to buy them for them self?
Yes, which is why I won't do it. My friend(the same one from #1) always asks me to buy cigarettes for her when we are out, since she's 16 & I'm 18. I never do because I would feel bad about it, like I was helping her get lung cancer.

3. If you don't wear your seat belt, why?
There is this one guy I'm friends with who NEVER wears his seat belt, when I'm driving I make him put it on before going anywhere. I just don't get it, he claims he just doesn't like wearing them.

- Do you fill up the sink with soap and water OR do you just put the soap on a sponge?

- Do you have a dish rag to dry the dishes OR do you have a rack to let them air dry?

I have a friend who was recently hospitalized with a very dangerous blood clot near her brain... She was recently released, and I'm putting together some things to send to her.

Among these things are some "inspirational quotes" so to speak.

Can you guys suggest some that may be good for someone who is dealing with such a crappy situation?
