So here's the situation. You have the chance to ressurect one of three dead people.
Aside from manner of death, they're all equally deserving. They're all the same age, say early twenties. They come back physically healthy, with all their memories intact, and no knowledge of the afterlife.
a. Someone who committed suicide.
b. Someone who was murdered.
c. A woman who died of pregnancy complications. (note: Only the woman, the baby stays dead)
Who do you choose?
Would it change your answer if the murdered person was killed by poison over a period of several months?
What are your weaknesses?
What's your oldest icon? (HINT: It's the one at the top when you to go Manage > Userpics.) Comment with it!
*points* That's mine.
is yoga a better workout than kickboxing/taebo?
I am pretty skinny and I am trying to build muscle.
The yoga class I am taking is 4 days a week. I am really only feeling soreness in my glutes, besides the spiritual aspect-nothing.
I am also trying to work out with weighted machines as well..2 time a week.
I will probably take kickboxing next semester which will be 4 days as well.
i was revising for my exams just now and i don't understand this part. there's no one around to help and the usual chemistry websites i visit has no answer to it!
hopefully anyone with a chem background can help me out.
The Standard Enthalpy Change of neutralisation (SECON) is defined as the heat change when an amount of acid or alkali is neutralised to form 1 mole of water at standard conditions.
So why is the SECON for this reaction
KOH + HCl -> KCl + H2O (-57.0kJ/mol)
the same as
2KOH + H2SO4 -> K2SO4 + 2H2O
when the first reaction produces one mole of water but the second reaction produces 2 moles of water as seen from the equation. According to the definition, the 2nd reaction should produce twice as much heat.
please help. thank you :D
I've googled and searched knitting LJs and haven't found a blessed thing about this.
Circular knitting on double-pointed needles eludes me, no matter how hard I try. I can cast on without issue, join without issue, but something always seems to screw up during the actual knitting. Using a circular needle would be the answer, but I don't have a set and won't be able to get any for a while yet.
And so, my question: how does one go about converting a pattern for DPNs to straight needles? Do you cast on an extra stitch or two to allow for the seam? Is it just knit with the same number of stitches?
is anyone else high?
i'm watching emril lagasse and they have an itialan person singing for the band... and he just serenaded a table for what seamed like an awkwardly long time... like the people looked uncomfortable. pretty funny?
ok i've heard of this one lj community where you like, write an entry to someone who may or may not see it. i guess it's just a community where people can vent or let out all their feelings toward someone without actually writing something to give to them. does anybody know the name of it?
Okay, I'm about to make a banner with a guy watching his ex-girlfriend kissing his friend in an attempt to make him jealous. What's a good phrase or word to use on it?
(Just in case anyone watches Passions, it is Fancy and Luis kissing with Noah watching.)
You are in a relationship and your sex life is amazing. You start cheating (physical and/or emotional) and your sex life goes downhill. You find yourself unable to perform at times even though you really want to be with your gf. Why can't you get it up and/or keep it up?
Ladies, if you would like to put in your 2 cents, feel free
What "white noise" drives you insane? You know, the sort of noises you're supposed to be able to ignore.
Mine is the noise that TVs make when they're on mute or when they've just been shut off. It makes me want to crawl out of my skin.
Which stores sell grocery carts?
I need to buy a grocery cart to cut down on trips from the garage to my apartment on the 4th floor.
Edit: Oops! I meant the ones that fold and can be stored in your trunk until you need to use them.
how many days does the world cup last?
I keep forgetting the answer to this, but can film and picture cards (of digital cameras) go through the x-ray crap at airports without getting screwed up? I think 800 speed film can't (I have 400) and I've been hearing conflicting opinions on the picture cards.. anyone know for sure?
Also, does my bank have euros lying around? Like, can I go there and take out 100 euro so I don't have to exchange money for a cab ride at the airport, etc.?
a few quick ones:
1) What's the best whitening toothpaste that ACTUALLY whitens? I've used tons that don't do anything except, hopefully, clean my teeth.
2) And the best at-the-drugstore face wash for acne prone skin?
3) Is there anywhere online that I can enter my address and get results for all the cell phone companies whose service reaches my house? I live in kind of a dead area and, as far as I know only nextel works here and weakly, but perhaps other companies have improved since we got the nextels 2 years ago.
When was the last time you thought "Shut up, you're making my side look bad"?
Anyone using the new Windows Vista? If you are, do you have any virus protection that works on it yet? :p I'm thinking about installing it, but my McAffee doesn't work.
OK, I'll keep this short. Or try to at least...
I was driving home yesterday and I was finishing my veggie burger from Burger King. I threw the trash out my window (stupid- yes I know... don’t worry I pay for it in a second ten fold) and proceed to drive the next block to get to my house. I pull up and park and all of a sudden I have this guy banging on my window like a mad man telling me he will call the cops if I don’t go pick up the trash.
I was startled, so I said ok I will, your right- profusely. But seeing as how he wasn’t listening to me and just still screaming, I tell him that he needs to apologize to me for being so rude. He didn’t like that very much- he opens my car door and tries to pull me out- I react and try to get away. Then he gets in my face ... shoulders rolled back looking down on me, like a man in a bar trying to start a fight... and then says fine i'm calling the cops on you.
Now it needs to be said that he didn’t leave marks on me... but he followed me to my house, tried to pull me out of my car, kept getting in my face to intidimate me, and putting his hands out in front of me touching my chest pushing me around and egging me on. But all I did was start freaking out, scared.. the man was psycho- he followed me home. SO I start crying...
I called the cops, cause I was scared- but the cops wont (couldn’t) do anything for me. And actually tried to talk me out of filing charges. They tried to tell me that if they file a report they willahve to file the report one me littering... and I told them I dont care- its not the point. 80% of assualts on women go unfiled because of fear, lack of support, and the woman feeling like it was her fault. I cant be quiet- this guy was wrong. Even if nothing comes of it... I need to do it for myself.
SOOOO my question is- what can I file charges on him for? I realize that this is a minor thing.... BUT coming from past experience with abuse.... you shouldn’t stay quiet. Someone knocks you down... stand up for yourself....
What... if anything can I file against him.
P.s. - I picked up the trash. Lesson learned.
So everyone is always talking about World of Warcraft and how amazingly addictive it is.
Can someone tell me the basics of this? What do I need to play it? Is it difficult? I'm not very good with video games, the best I can do is Katamari Damacy.
I left my status as "annoyed by my roommates" on Facebook, and apparently, my old bitchy roommate saw it and told my current roommates. Sooo my current roommate (whose boyfriend lives here illegally), who's very nonconfrontational, just "poked" me--just made me aware that she saw my status. I know this sounds petty and was immature of me to do, since it's gonna cause a bit of drama, but step should I take now, when they come back from a week vacation?
I'm making Kraft Dinner, but I don't have any milk and I'm too hungry NOW to go out and buy some.
Will it taste okay without the milk? Is there anything I could use instead?
What are necessities when you first move into an apartment?
What some things that are often forgotten about?
What's one thing you splurged on on bought even though you didn't need it?
1. What chain grocery stores are in your town?
2. What gas stations are in your area?
3. What bookstores are near you?
4. How big is the movie theater in your town?
5. Where do you live?
1. HyVee and Price Chopper
2. Sinclair, (something) 66, Shell, KwikStop
3. Borders and Hastings
4. I think it has 12 theaters
5. northwest Missouri
can anyone smooth out a picture if I send it to them?
I want to get rid of some puffiness under my eyes.
Cutest/funniest/whateverist flirtatious comment someone has left you?
When you go to see a movie in the theater, do you bail when the credits start to roll or do you stick around to the very end?
I stay to the end. You know a lot of the times they throw stuff in at the end. Drives me nuts when I'm with people and they jump up to leave as soon as the credits roll.
I noticed a question about Windows Vista on here, and I remembered I have my own question for any beta testers.
I don't like a bulky OS, in fact I declined to upgrade to XP, because I prefer the trimmed down footprint of windows 2000
Just how "strippable" is Vista?
Can the fancy new interface be fully stripped away?
Can logging be fully disabled
Can IE and Media Player be removed completely, or at least prevented from loading?
What is the absolute minimum memory/cpu footprint you can strip it down to.
Even if I choose not to use most of the features, will it clog up my hard drive with them anyway?
I saw that there will be an "N" version for europe with Media Player removed. Will this version be available/usable in the US, and will this also be available in the stripped down home basic version without the "Aero" interface?
Even when I have an up-to date system I don't use system sounds, backgrounds, any sort of window transitions or effects, and I try to keep background processes to an absolute minimum. I find that with all the new bells and whistles they keep adding to Windows, computers get SLOWER at doing day to day tasks like web browsing and the like even as CPU speed goes up.
I'd love to use the Vista kernel, as I'm planning to go 64 bit for my next computer, but I don't want to use all that power to just support my OS.
Today, I turned 21. :)
Alas, my question: being sung to in a restaurant by waiters, complete with obnoxious clapping and cheesy verses. Love it or hate it?
Your most memorable experiences with it?
I was looking at the June issue of Wired magazine and they had a lil thing about this site Prosper.com. Has anyone else heard of this? If so what are your experiences/thoughts/etc...?
For women who have been pregnant (or anyone else who might know this):
How far along in a pregnancy can you start feeling baby movement? Not like someone putting their hand on you and feeling a kick. Smaller, "inside" movement, if that makes sense? Some sites have described this as "little fluttering feelings". But I was curious when some women actually started feeling things like this?
And bonus points to anyone who can better describe what this felt like, when and how often they felt it?
I hope this made sense, thanks in advance :)
I'm a bookworm. I usually stick to what I know best though, horror/crime/thrillers etc. But I'm looking for a change. I want to read some 'classics' or something that 'changed your life'
Books! I need books people!!!!
So basically, what do you think are some 'classics' that everyone should read?
And is there a book that 'changed your life'? or at least, your outlook on life?
right now I am reading Memoirs Of A Geisha and I'm planning on reading Catcher in The Rye.
Is there a good site to get some LJ Layouts? I've found a few but it is for paid users only. Oh, and I don't want to join a community either... =)
What torrent sites do you use most frequently and with the most success?

How long were you dating your significant other before you
a) farted in their presence?
b) pooped in their house / while they were around?
What is the name of the site where AIM chats are posted? There's a rating system, and a randomizer. I used to read that all the time when I was bored at work, but I got a new computer a while ago, and forgot to re-bookmark everything.
ETA: Answered, thanks! To keep this post alive: what funny/interesting sites do you frequent? And to make it different than the million other "funny websites" posts, I specifically mean those that have reader-posted stories or anecdotes, like bitterwaitress.com, or the unintentionally funny (but pretty amusing, none the less) planetfeedback.com?
If you took all the junk you didn't want anymore, priced it and put it out in front of your house to sell would you call this a tag sale, a yard sale, a garage sale or something else?
Where are you from?
Do you shop at these sales? What do do buy?
What is the best thing you've ever bought at one of these sales?
Have you ever had one of these sales?
Do you have any good weird people stories?
The best thing i ever bought was this folder of Boy George magazine cutouts some pre-teen had kept in the 1980s. It was 10 cents and very very funny. Lots of lipstick kisses all over his pictures and angry notes to her friends about how "He's not gay! OMG! You are such a braT!"
Also I bought a ring that turned out to have a real sapphire for 15 cents.
Last garage sale I had, someone tried to hit on my friend by buying some pants of hers and stroking them in front of her. (Ooo. Your sexy ass was in these....)
Also, at a garage sale we had when I was a kid, someone broke into our house and wanted to buy our beds and food out of our frige and things like that.
That was weird.
Whats a good addictive game that I can download (or play online)?
I got my computer worked on this week, and now that I have it back, I noticed when I use any font in my messenger programs, it looks sort of fuzzy around the edges. Any clues as to why this might be?
Are there any words in English that start with "ce" where the c doesn't sound like s? The only one I know of is Celtic.
What are some names of people that are used multiple times in your city/town to name things? Like in Pittsburgh everything is Carnegie this or Frick that or Benedum something-or-other or Schenley whatsit or Mellon your mom.

My boyfriend and I built a PC and everything went smoothly, except when we installed XP. It recognized the 300 gig hard drive as 130 gigs. Someone on newegg.com commented that they had this same problem and simply went to Disk Management and formatted the remaining space as a separate partition, except on this computer it only shows the 130 gig partition and nothing else.
EDIT- Problem solved, we installed SP1 and the unallocated space appeared. Thanks for all of your help!
anyone know of a Cinderella song with a lyric like "She flys up to the angels"? i searched the lyric and came up with nothing.
Im horrible with fractions, and I need to do well in this class Im taking.
So does anyone know of any tips/tricks to help out, reducing, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing...anything.
Also, is there a way to work with fractions on the TI-84 plus?
So, I'm trying to impress tonight. I'm going out to a "Girl's Night" at a club, and I've got to put on the glitz.
So, tell me, dear TQCers. I have a pair of dark brown, slightly checkered pants. They're fairly formal-looking.
I want to wear this dressy black tank with it.
However, I'm not sure if the combination works.
Do brown and black work well together?
I'm being subjected to audio recordings of tonight's Cake concert. Recorded on a cell phone and played back on a cell phone. (This is the 2nd time I've heard these tonight. At least I'm not in the same room this time.)
That's my annoyance. What's bugging you right now?
