Who lives?

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?

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.

anyone think I should say more?
I think I need to say 'sorry' or good luck moving or something?

oh, no worries.
till then.

brace yourself - it's another sex question.

When reading reviews in Babeland the other day, I noticed that a lot of virgins expressed their worry that using a vibrator would spoil the real thing for them - that it wouldn't be as good. Which inspires the following question:

Do you feel that using a vibrator makes actual-sex

  • Pale in comparison.
  • Better: My body has learned to have more interesting sensations and reactions during sex.
  • No different. (Explain. Maybe nothing compares to the real thing for you.)
  • (Other - Please explain.)

    Chemistry Help!

    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

    converting knitting patterns.

    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?

    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?

    I'm up early.

    1. I'm determined to get a job at Dunkin Donuts. I applied on Wednesday and called the manager yesterday (Friday) to ask if he'd had a chance to review my application. He asked my name and grabbed my application. He told me he hadn't yet, but he looked over it right then. He asked me about school; I told him I'm in night school. He asked what nights, and I said I don't start until September, but most likely Monday and Thursday. It seemed to please him that I don't start until September. He then said, "Okay, just give me a few days, and I'll get back to you." He seemed really nice and asked questions; he didn't just say "I'll look" and try to get me off the phone.

    It does seem like he's interested, right? I'm just paranoid because he didn't tell me to come in for an interview. Do you think he's just going to schedule them all at once? Anddd... would it be a bad idea to call again in a few days? Just to tell him I'm really interested and that I wanna know if he's decided on interviews yet. Or should I wait?

    2. Do other people think you look younger, older, or about your age? Most people think I look younger than 19; some have thought I was 16.

    for the guys

    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?

    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?

    and finally...

    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.

    ATTENTION all cops or crimial justice majors

    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.

    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?

    There was a TV show I used to watch when I was little. All I remember is that they were puppets (not muppets though) and it was very PC. All races were represented (as far as I remember) and there were people with disabilities. They might have been in a treehouse? Clubhouse? The only character I remember was Sky, the native american.

    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.

    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?

    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.
