Let's say you got laid last night. Now since you were dumb and didn't use protection, you're afraid you might be pregnant. How long would it be until you first saw early symptoms of pregnancy?

ETA: This is a hypothetical situation, just so you know.

Grad School: Full- or Part-time?

Does anyone know of a website that talks about the cost-benefit analysis of going to grad school full-time as opposed to part-time?

I would love to go to grad school full-time, but I have only been taking two classes at a time thinking I would save money. But the only jobs I am able to get pay really lousily and they are very unenjoyable service jobs. So, now I am wondering if perhaps I am actually losing money on the deal since I will be working more years in low paying jobs, while my tuition raises every year.

I am thinking that perhaps going full time is actually more practical than I had originally thought? Loans shouldn't be a problem. My husband will be well into his career as a lawyer once I am done with school and we can pay big chunks of it along the way.

What do you all think? I am not too good at the financial analysis end of this.



Do you know any good, free sites where you can make your own newsletters and send them out?

1: It needs to be add free.

2: I need to send out to over 500 people, so no limits are allowed.

3: And finally, please not a site that steals emails and sells them to Rupert Murdoch and co. ;)

I know this is a longshot, but... I had to ask. :)

Sigh. I want a really simple sleeve for my new laptop, something I can just slip it into for protection and then throw it into my own bag. For example, the one I covet most so far is this quilted one by Timbuk2. The problem is that my laptop is apparently enormous, 15" wide and 11" deep and 1.5" high and I'm having trouble finding a sleeve that will fit it.

So, do you have any recommendations for laptop sleeves, especially ones that come in large sizes? (Note that I've tried going through my laptop's manufacturer and nothing thrills me.)

This question has a twist to it. I want to see if there are people here who haven't been to a theater in 2+ years (since 2004 or earlier).

The last movie I saw in theaters was How the Grinch Stole Christmas, back in November 2000. Can you beat that? ;)

(For the record, I have ABSOLUTELY no interest in setting foot inside a theater anytime soon. I've done it for 5 1/2 years, why not try for 10 years?)

colds & mucus

I have some sort of awful cold. Yesterday it was bad in the morning but was okay later after I took Sudafed, though it's always the worst in the morning. Right now it feels like I have mucus trapped in the back roof of my mouth, the part where the roof of your mouth meets your throat. It seems to drip straight down my throat every time I swallow and it's super uncomfortable, and starting to make me nauseous. How can I get it out of that part of my mouth? Coughing doesn't work, blowing my nose doesn't work. My father is convinced it's because I don't blow my nose enough when I'm sick, but I really do, this stuff seems to come out of no where.

What are some of the best OTC things I can buy? How can I get the stuff out?!

So me and my mom moved up north recently, and of course brought the dog. We also met Haley, a cute little three-year-old who comes over all the time (human, to clarify.)

Fall, our dog, flips out whenever he sees her. My mom's pissed as hell and all OMG DOG IN DISGRACE YADDA YADDA YADDA, and I think she's going about it wrong.

What's a good, surefire way to introduce the two to make it good? Fall's an incredibly sweet dog, but he's just scared shitless of Haley. He flips and barks and snarls when he sees her, then settles down immediately, but still flips when she runs by.

Advice, please? I'm pissed as all hell at my Mom for being so pissed at the dog - yes, he's being bad, but it's not like he's meaning to or like he's used to little girls.

We have a citronella collar, but it doesn't do much.

I've had bad eyes that I've been ignoring for, oh, five years... They are getting worse and it's too the point where I can no longer "blink away the blur". Sigh.

I don't want to get glasses! Can I go straight to contacts without ever getting glasses?

Would there be a adjustment period where things look blurry or distorted with contacts while I get used to then? I know people say that happens with new glasses, is it the same with contacts?

Can anyone recommend a CAD program for OS X? My brother is entering a mechanical engineering program in the fall and we're trying to avoid installing XP on his new Mac. Links to any "askanengineer" communities would be appreciated as well.


Ok, in your opinion what should I do?

I need two math classes for my degree. we will just call them math 1 and math 2.

I am currently in math 1, and struggling...Im pulling a B right now but its a 16week course piled into 5 weeks. class everyday and a horrible prof.
It ends next week at which point I am registered for math #2, another 5 week hell course with a teacher I dont hear the best of things about, but dont personally know.

Its the summer of my freshman year in college, Im working 32+ hours a week and juggling classes (no social life because I dont have time) My GPA is a 3.7 and Im damn proud however I was expecting these classes to lower it a bit because I completely suck at math.

My father thinks and is adament about my dropping math #2 and taking it in the fall, where I have no room for it other than as an internet course, which would take my credit load to 19 ( 12 - 18 if full load here) and it would be online...no prof explaining physically in front of me.

The break does sound nice...but so does having all my math out of the way.

What would you do?
Internet in the fall or 5 weeks summer course?

also, I dont know if its a big deal or not, but Im already taking another internet course in the fall..a stupid conputer requirement (do you know how to use excel etc) I could push it back to the spring semester where I have a very light load, but I dont really want to.
I tend to become over zealous with school sometimes.

So if you choose internet in the fall. w/ the computer class or w/o?

I'm looking to play a sport over the summer, and then in the fall as well. I'm looking into playing either soccer, tennis, dodgeball or volleyball- the problem is, although I'm fairly athletic- I've never played a sport in high school (except for two weeks of Volleyball). [Yet another edit: I played crew outside of high school for five years, but the athletic forms ask for "High school coach"]

1. I'm going to a community college next year. What are the chances of some one who never played the sport before making a CC team? Even though it's a CC, I would still assume that they cut a lot of people because there's 7,000 students. There are no intramurals at the school.

2. How would one find a intramural that isn't connected to a college or university? Like a soccer club or the like. The few I am finding has people who were MVP in college. I want to find something like pick up games, or a casual league.

3. I just received my financial aid information. It's composed solely of grants and an oncampus work study, and I need about $2000 more to help cover living expenses. Could I call the college and ask to take out a Stafford loan even if it's not included in the package? Would they take it out of my grants, so I would still end up with the same rewards package. I received quite a lot, so I don't want to seem ungrateful.

4. Other then joining sports and clubs, how can I meet friends in the city to which I'm moving. I'm not the type of person who goes up to somebody else and starts talking, nor do I go to bars or clubs (because I'm underage, and I don't drink).


PS: Other the Turninto.com are there any website that give you costume ideas for famous people/cartoons/politicians or that are legit guides for showing you how to dress or look like some one?

I need ideas.

I have a pretty basic (read: crappy) computer desk. This desk is EXTREMELY basic -- no drawers on it AT ALL. It's also really old and was made at a time when horizontal CPU towers were popular, instead of vertical. Thus, my CPU tower has to sit under my desk, giving me less footspace. But I digress.

I just did a total computer desk overhaul, and that included organizing papers and stuff we had in our makeshift 'file drawer' (papers shoved into an old Frankhoma napkin holder). I had extra file folders lying around, and organized them into file folders.

The problem is, I DON'T HAVE A FILE DRAWER. Help me here...what could I put the file folders in? No, we don't have boxes lying around. I'm pretty resourceful, but today the well is dry. HELP!

Would you be ticked off if you lent a fellow regular working bus rider (stranger) $2.25 for their fare and they paid you back the next day with one bus ticket (good for the exact ride s/he took) when bus tickets can only be bought in packs of 10, so really, your fellow bus rider only paid you back $1.75? (When buying a pack at a convenience store instead of from the bus driver, the tickets are discounted.)

Put yourself in the place of the borrowing bus rider. Does opinion change?

Savings/reward cards

Recently, my boyfriend and I made a 500+ mile move. Since we chipped away significantly at our savings in the process, we are trying to find little ways here and there of saving money. Nothing drastic, just clipping coupons and such. One thing I've found is registering for rewards programs at places I frequently shop, either online or in-store. It's actually become somewhat of a dorky thrill for me for some reason. I guess I figure if I'm going to be shopping anyway, earning some rewards here and there can't hurt, right?

It had Willie Nelson in it and it was a duett. The other voice may have been Toby Keith or something, but come to think of it, I odn't know if it may have been a girl. I'm pretty sure it was two guys.

A few TV questions

1. Is any one else watching Last Comic Standing? Was there anyone you thought should make it to the house that didn't?

I thought that Nikki Payne (sp?) should have made it - she's the one with the hare lip, cleft palate and lisp. She's freaking hilarious!

Which brings me to 2: For those of you in Canada, you might be familiar with the Comedy Network, and the program "Comedy Network Presents" Last night's episode was an hour of Nikki Payne. Does anyone know where I could find that online? I want to show my best friend, who loved her on LCS, and was as disappointed as I was when she didn't advance. She'll get a kick out of her hour long stand up act, especially her finger-puppet portrayal of Oz. (The HBO prison drama, not the Wonderful Wizard Of)

And, on a related note, 3: I also love Bobby Lee - he is the only reason I watch Mad TV (well, Ike Baronholtz (sp, again!) is funny sometimes, too). Anyway, my favorite skit Bobby does is "24 With Bobby Lee" Does anyone know where those segments can be found online? I checked YouTube, it wasn't there. But that's the only place I know to find videos. :(

Thanks for all your help!

My dad has 2 dogs. One is a black lab, and one is a yellow lab. The yellow lab chews on the black labs ear's, not biting or hurting it, but just kind of gnawing and it doesn't bother it. The weird thing about it, is that the black dogs ears are turning brown from the gnawing. It's the weirdest thing ever! An all black dog has ears that are now visibly brown. What could be causing this? It's not really a problem at all, but I just thought it was so strange. Any ideas?

Ok, we've been seeing tons of posts about random users that have been created regarding tqc. I tried a search of interests to find more spawn users or communities but it got me nowhere. So, does anyone know of any other communities or users that are based around TQC? I'm highly curious now.

x-posted Prank War Help Needed!

Justin and I(my co-worker) are in a "prank war".

It started with him leaving his computer unattended and log on. Soooo, I took it upon myself to send a few emails. All in fun of course but, the best one was the one I sent to his best friend confessing his undying love for him. Wanting him. Needing him. Something about thinking of only him while having sex with his wife. I closed the email with..."If you feel the same way, come meet me for lunch."

I died. DIED. As Dave walked into the door having NO clue as he hadn't read the email I sent twenty minutes prior to his arrival. Classic. :) Dave's awesome though, and found it quite amusing when he returned to work after a casual lunch with Justin. So anyway, during lunch today Justin decided to get his revenge by saran wrapping everything on my desk. Funny, it was. But, that only meant war.

We have set up rules: It's late but, no messing with each other's food or drink and pranks must be done during duty hours. I need more ideas people. HELP! I must win. At the end of the day on Friday, the office will vote on who the best prankster is. I have to win but, I need your help.

My mind is blank...so aside from pouring warm water on his cloth covered office chair. I've got nothin'. I was thinking about super glueing his chair to the floor. :/ I dunno.

Tell me what'cha got.

1. If you were to have your own business what kind would it be?

2. If you were interested in a certain career field but after research found out that the general public really doesn't understand a lot about the career and have an overall negative view of it, do you think that would affect your decision to go into that field at all?

3. When you created/edited your résumé did you use the MS Word template wizard or another program's wizard, a different template found somewhere on the internet, create one from scratch, hire a professional to do it, or other?
