gift for a shar-pei puppy

My boyfriend's friends/co-workers recently got a Shar-pei puppy. We want to get a gift for the puppy. Are there any certain toys that are good for Shar-pei puppies? I don't know anything about this breed beyond their wrinkles.

So I decided to start a second journal for use in communities.

However, when I created the account, I was hit with a notice telling me that while the birthdate I provided shows me to be over 13 (i'm 21!), that this machine had been previously used to create an account for someone under 13, and therefore they needed to verify my age for COPPA, whatever that is.

1) I can't think of ANY occasion, Livejournal or otherwise, where I have created an account for someone 13 or under. This is my own personal computer. I don't even live at home anymore!
2) Clearly that begs the question, why did LJ ask me to verify?
3) And even if I HAD used this computer to create an account somewhere for an under-13, how did LJ know? Is it strictly because of my IP address, or what? Furthermore (lots of questions, geez), does "account" mean ANY account anywhere, even outside of LJ? How on earth would they track that? (and if they are, that's just creepy).

Despite the fact that I am 21, in order to verify my age I needed to provide a "parent's" email and my credit card information. I really wasn't comfortable with LJ asking for my credit card info and assuring me I won't be charged - but with a disclaimer that any charges made are not reversible. However, this account is a paid one - so they've already got my info. I just went ahead and did it, since I was getting annoyed.

The parent email request was strange though. Why am I providing that? I gave an old email of my own.

(The account was basically unusable until I went through these steps, so I ended up with no choice.)

edit: I posted in lj_support and received an answer.

OMG DATING QUESTION

Say you're an extremely kinky person. Kinky sex is absolutely required for you to be happy in a relationship. (If you're not, just pretend for a moment.)

1. Would you advertise your kinks in meatspace (e.g., with a key fob that looks like a leather spanking paddle)?
2. If you had a profile on a dating site, would you mention your kinkiness?
3. If you answered 'no' to the above, how soon after meeting someone would you bring it up?
4. If you are a kinky person, would you be weirded out by someone who's completely up front about it?

NJ license troubles

1. Does anyone have any idea when the government(specifically the Motor Vehicles Commission) is going to reopen in New Jersey?
All of the stories I've seen and read about it don't seem to give any estimate at all. I had been putting off getting my regular license for a few months, I was going to go last week but I couldn't find all of the stuff I needed for my 6 points. My dad found them all for me but now the MVC is closed and I need to get my regular license because I'll be driving to New York this weekend to stay with my grandpa and I can't drive in other states with my restricted license. I don't want to trap someone into driving me. Usually my aunt comes to pick me up and my dad comes to bring me home but my aunt has been having a lot of back troubles lately and I don't want her to have to drive all the way here and back.

2. If they don't open in time should I have someone drive me or take my chances and hope I don't get pulled over or into an accident?

As it's gone two in the morning, I can't exactly leave the backdoor open to let them out, but is there anything I can do to prolong their existence till a reasonable hour of the day?

what's 1,92 meter in the english system? and what's 1,52? is there a conversion website somewhere I can use?

also, I recently found out I read more slowly than my best friend, with whom everything is a huge competition. So, I need to figure out how to start reading faster. Is there anything other than maybe just a lot of practice that could get me to start reading faster? Probably not, but if anyone has any tricks, I do have to take the SAT's and everything next year, so it's a talent I could keep for fun.

Curious!

So, what do you guys think about the University of Phoenix?? I'm almost to the point where I need to look at 4 year colleges, and I'd like to just pay for school outright and not take out loans...but this means I need to be able to afford it. UofP seems like a decent college but I'm a little skeptical - are their degrees considered less prestigious than other colleges? How much would I be judged if I had a bachelor's degree from there?

Tipping

I'm having my hair cut, dyed, and highlighted this afternoon at a spa that also does body wraps and massages...assuming that the stylist does a good job, how much should I tip? How much should I tip the shampoo person?

I'm not sure how much it's going to cost, I expect it to be kind of expensive...so I guess a percentage would be helpful, rather than a specific dollar amount.

Just a fun poll

Since it's just a fun poll, I'll ask a serious question to justify this post


What would be more painful to you? If your SO engaged in physical infidelity (sex with another person) or emotional infidelity (they have strong feelings towards another). I'm not asking which one has the greater chance of reconciliation. I'm asking which one, when learned of, would hurt you more?

If you could make a 3-D video of anything, what would you record?

I need one for my psychology project next year. I'll be taught how to make one, and I know how I'll be using it once made, but I'm having trouble picking a subject. The video content will be pretty much irrelevant to the study, so I could record almost anything.

I'm fully expecting a list of disturbing responses. Don't fail me, thequestionclub.

MySpace virus?

I swear I never clicked on links to those fake bulletins, where if you click on the link, the post gets reposted under your name. However, my account seems to be posting MySpace bulletins, at random hours of the night. They're semi-offensive titles, things I would NEVER post, which I don't find out about until my friends who know I would never post such things message me about them! Any idea how to cancel these postings or delete whatever file is causing them?

My left eye has been twitching for just over a week. It started off fairly light, but now when it goes it's totally visible. I have no idea why it's happening and I don't really care enough to go to the doctor (I only have emergency coverage while I switch health insurance plans).

Anyway, my question has nothing to do with fixing it or whatever.

What are some fun ways I could use the twitch for comedic effect?

For example: Going to a gun shop (Which I am doing anyway. Should be fun.)

Second question: What is a decent, lightweight but not cheap, gun good for target shooting (learning) and "home protection" uses? And ya know, for a girl. So far I'm looking at a SIG-Sauer P232 .380 ACP.

Home loans

I have two questions about home loans:

1.) In general, do banks require that a person be in a job for a certain amount of time before they'll consider the income from said job for a home loan? Like, if I got a job that paid $50,000/yr in August, got my first paycheck in September and applied for a home loan that same month, does the fact that I've only been in the job for a month affect anything?

2.) Do I have to be married or related to someone for both of our income to be considered when applying for a loan? Like, if I'm engaged, but not married, can both my fiance and my income both be considered for one individual loan?

I'm sure it varies from situation to situation, but I'm just wondering in general terms...

Thanks!

Chapstick, my true love

1. So who else is ADDICTED to Chapstick (or other forms of lip balm)?

2. A friend claims to have read an article that claims Chapstick addiction is REAL and it occurs because if you use it too much, your body stops producing an enzyme that naturally moistens your lips. Has anyone else heard of this?

Sometimes I will look at people who are famous and think that they wouldn't be so hot if they were just some guys in my front yard hanging out. Does anyone else ever think this way?

Need online payment system

I need an automated payment system for my website, one that will let people click and pay on the spot. However, I can't use PayPal because I only have a limited number of what I'm selling. And I can't figure out how to get PayPal to stop accepting payments when I've sold out the limit. It just keeps accepting money even when I've run out and don't have any left to sell.

Is there an automated payment system similar to PayPal that will let me put a limit on how many payments it will accept? Or is there a way to get your PayPal button to give a "sold out" message after a certain number are sold?

Hey, 
I was wondering if anyone knows of a livejournal community or a forum in which people write on the topic of depression or vent about their own depression, and which is written in Turkish.

Oh, well, eff you, Senor Dickface!

I have been calling my ex "Senor Dickface" when I've needed to mention him to other people. (Real mature, I know. But I'm still really pissed at him and all that, so calling him "Ex Boyfriend" just isn't cutting it yet.) Senor Dickface is growing old, though.

What are some good insulting names you might use in place of Senor Dickface? Crusty Buttcheese has been used, in case you were thinking of that one.

Middle Eastern stereotypes

I'm looking for movies, stand-up comedy, or propaganda dealing with Middle Easterners and/or Muslims in America and their stereotypes. It can be serious or humorous. Unfortunately, Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World hasn't been released yet, otherwise that would be perfect. There's also Crash, but I don't think it's that accurate.

So far the only other thing I know of is Mad TV's "Depressed Persian Tow Truck Man" which is really awful and I wish it didn't exist.

Also, I'm interested in what Middle Eastern stereotypes you believe are true, at least to some extent? Some examples would be that they're all terrorists, they have close relations with their camels and goats, they're all Muslims and often "go jihad."

to call or not to call?

So okay, I've never done this before. Monday night / Yesterday morning I spent with this guy that I have a HUUUUUGE crush on. I guess you could say we "hooked up" but more like we just made out for hours, slept and then woke up and made out for a few more hours.

Should I call him? Wait for him to call me?

I think we're both going to the same thing tomorrow night. Should I just wait until tomorrow? Is the day after too soon? OH GOD. What do I do? I want him to know I'm interested (obviously) but I don't want to seem pushy or anything.

women and testosterone

I'm wondering if anyone knows of ways for a female to naturally raise her testosterone levels. I've read bunches of articles pertaining to this but they never specify if the information is for both sexes or just males. The articles that I've read have stated that lifting heavy weights for 20-30 mins, eating monounsaturated fats, taking a zinc/magnesium supplement and cutting down on alcohol consumption are all important to testosterone production- but I don't know whether this is true for women. Would these steps just increase estrogen production? Any info or links will be appreciated.

Have you ever been cheated on? Have you ever cheated on a boyfriend/girlfriend/SO/husband/boyfriend/dog/cat/furry love partner?

If you have been in a relationship where you both cheated on the other, do you think that the first person cheating pushed the other person to cheat? Do you see that 'follow-up' cheating in a different light than if the person hadn't been cheated on first?

If you have cheated, and don't mind sharing, why did you cheat? Do you still cheat, or was it a on-time thing or a thing of the past?

And completely off of that train of thought... why am I so fucking tired?

Inspired by a previous question ...

I live in an apartment building. Yesterday, my fiance noticed 4 large houseflies grouped together on the wall nearest the door. Since then, we've killed over 20 and there are still 3 or 4 flying around.

When I got home from work late last night, I noticed one on one of the walls in the stairwell, a few flights down. There are not, and have not been, any maggots in my apartment, to the best of my knowledge. Also, no food or garbage left around. 

Is it possible that someone else in the building (and quite possibly on my floor) had maggots and the mature flies have simply found their way into my apartment?? And how -- through the door?

Have you used a bidet to improve your sex life?

6 On the Remote Control page, under Posterior Wash, it states that it sends a 'steam of water' - are you, like me, hoping that this is one of their many typos, or would you like to cook your behind?

Would you be willing to gain 10 lbs within an 8 week time frame and then lose the 10 lbs within the subsequent 8 weeks? And throughout this process undergo mutliple fat biopsies (which you've heard aren't that painful)? And if you successfully complete the gaining and losing you would be paid $2500. Would you try for it?

Would your decision change based on your current weight or if you weighed differently? How about it you were average sized and for the past year have been trying lose about 5 stubborn pounds?

My work is offereing this study and i've been considering it but am worried about the whole gaining weight part and then losing it.

So tell me what you would do! Thanks! Or if you've done a similar study tell me about it!
