which celebrities do you find to be overrated in the looks department?
How long did it take? It's been a week now and I haven't heard anything back. I don't know if that's typical or if something isn't going right.

Discuss? if you can.
Say if it was an offensive advertisement – whether offensive in terms of what it is saying or in terms of say a company's ethics – how much trouble could a person get into for defacing it?
Taking into account in most cases complaints about advertisements rarely result in removal, also taking into account childish unethical nature of the act has already been taken into account. Any sources on laws regarding this [UK based] would be appreciated.
Anyone have any good websites for me to look?
I'm trying to make a list but my mind is going blank.
Do you also wear them inside your house?
If yes to the second question, why?
17 August 1943
what's your favourite deniro movie?
favourite deniro line(s)?
favourite deniro character?
Apparently this is common, but I'm also wondering, is it dangerous for your peen? I can't seem to find anything about it in detail, nor any dangers it could pose.
For or Against?
In your opinion, what common sayings/cliches are particularly stupid and/or make no sense?
For me, it's, "Live everyday like it's your last."
Please. The world would be in constant chaos.
Maybe half a year ago she was robbed by some neighborhood kids. There was a group of about six of them, four of them were put in jail but now four or five more kids have joined the group. It ranges from the youngest being (she thinks) about six to the older ones being seventeen or eighteen.
Lately some of the kids have been threatening her son. They were trying to steal his bike from the school bike rack and told another boy to give him the message that they were "looking for him". This was said right after they threatened to shoot the other boy. My coworker is pretty sure they've been expelled from the school or something, either way they don't belong there.
She's tried to talk to the school about it but they just told her that trying to stop the kids would just make them worse. She's been in contact with the police over all this nonsense since it started but they aren't doing anything. Moving isn't an option right now. She's at her wit's end trying to figure out how to save her son, do you have any suggestions?
I suggested going to a local news station if the school still refuses to step in. At the very least the kids being on school grounds is trespassing right?
Is it legal to buy something like that?
Do you think a wife should "submit to her husband"?
Do you think a husband is the "head of household"?
Do you think a wife is "under her husband's authority"?
a) to the popcorn?
b) to the bag?
c) to the microwave?
d) to the surrounding area?
2. Do you think the world would be any different if the day was 30 hours long instead of 24 hours long?
a) if the unit of "an hour" was the same length and there were just more of them?
b) if the day length was the same but just divided into shorter intervals?
3. Is there anything you totally advocate and are often appalled at how little some people seem to know about said subject?
4. What grammatical errors in speaking, (NOT in typing -- this gets old ;P), really get on your nerves?
5. What is something that your coworkers/classmates do that gets on your nerves?
6. How long after arriving to work in the morning do you proctrastinate getting started on actual work?
I need to lose about 70 pounds in about 3 months time. Has anyone lost a bunch of weight quickly (no surgery involved)? How did you go about it? What was successful?
The people at my work are all saying, "Oh, you're not fat, don't worry about it." That's not what my question is. My question is regarding how to go about losing a lot of weight that quickly. I AM big. (220 lbs). I want to be in the 150/160 area by the end of November.
Also, if anyone can suggest websites, communties or friends that deal with this, it would certainly be helpful and greatly appreciated.
I promise I'll make a more interesting question later. I'm sure this type of question is typicial in this community/lamewise, so I'll come up with a fiery question later.
(The question presumes you're not against having a kid - your own or adopted)
I'm thinking of buying it, especially with the sweet deal I can get on it, but I'm nervous about it turning out to be a big P.O.S. (Like my old digital, a Polaroid, which I hated) Thoughts?
( Collapse )
You get caught by the cops doing a misdemeanor, and are sentenced to 40 hours community service. How would you spend your 40 hours? What avenue of volunteer work would you contribute? They ask you for ONE preference for working off your hours
My other housemates want cable. Which is fine, but I'm leaving in 2.5 months. We can only get a cable subscription for 6 months, making it $50 a person. I'm going to be traveling during these months, too- probably a month's worth. Plus being busy with other shit and babysitting etc.
I think this is a terrible deal, and I don't want to fork up the cash for cable. My roommates want it (they're staying a month longer than I am and aren't traveling as much), and one in particular (remember the one who hands girls his dishes, with the sense of entitlement?) is upset at the idea of other people not wanting to join in on his parade.
The last thing I want to cause is drama, but I don't like being a doormat. Of course cable would be nice. And if I don't pay, there are issues like if I come into the common room to watch TV and they are watching cable, do I have to leave? how do we measure this?
Sooooo what should I do?
2. Our six month old cat absolutely refuses to drink out of a dish. He will only drink out of a glass, and only if said glass is on the coffee table. I don't mind having a spoiled cat, but he assumes that every glass on the coffee table is his to drink. I'm afraid one of these days he's going to drink alcohol and get sick. How can I make a dish on the kitchen floor appealing to him so I can start training him to leave our glasses alone?
Is it possible to get 50Hz to 60Hz converters, or vice versa, for large electrical appliances? e.g. washing machines.
If so, any ideas on how much they cost?
I promised a fiery question...so here it goes. This was a discussion at work.
As insensitive as this statement may be, do you feel it's true or false?
"Just because someone was a victim of terrorism on 9/11/01 does not mean they are a hero."
(I know, I know...insensitive...but do you feel the statement is true or false.)
Thanks again, everyone!
Who can I go to (doctor wise) to have it done?
I wearing hearing aids, and I need molds, and I can't have the molds done until the wax is taken out.
I can't hear, so I can't use the phone, and my mother refuses to call my doctor for me because "I'm an ingrate and a pain in the ass".
So I figure if I can get the wax out, I'll hear better, and be able to use the phone, or just be able to make her schedule my mold appointment.
Is calling out to work because my hearing aids are broken a genuine excuse?
1. Is there such a thing as women's aftershave? I was trying bikini zone and it didn't work so one day I decided to use my boyfriends aftershave... it worked really well but needless to say I'd prefer if my crotch didn't smell like CK Eternity for men
2. When you're really hungry, say towards the end of the work day, and you're starvingggg... what kinds of food do you crave? I crave sugar, which is weird. Candy and such.
3. Do any of you have naked/icky/unbecoming/ basically unwanted pictures circulating the internet?
4. What are everyone's plans for tonight?
5. Has the question club ever had a picture post, and if not can this be a picture post? We do them over in brutal_honesty and it's the most entertaining thing ever.
6. What is your favorite lj community and why? And you can only pick one.
I post ones that I find amusing in my LJ from time to time, and there is almost always someone who says "I don't get it."
And now the other question:
How do you tell someone to stop trying to get you to join one of those home-sales things (like Mary Kay, Party Lite, Creative Memories, Tupperware, etc)? And get them to actually shut up about it?
I have tried "No, not interested" "No, I can't afford it" "No, I just don't want to" "No, I don't have the time" "No!" and nothing is working. My friend will not leave me alone. She keeps sending me these emails that are blatant attempts to get me to join up. For the love of Pete, she's even offered to loan me 1/2 the money to get started! (I'm broke, I tried using that to get her off my back, she just came back with "I'll loan you $100!")
I just want her to stop already. I like to scrapbook and all, but fuck, not enough to make a "business" out of it. I'm out of things to say to her to make her understand that I just don't want to do it.
I've called them everyday and they say, "They will call you within the next 24hrs" but they never do. They were suppose to call me 192 hours ago.
Anyway, they are in strict violation of the warranty and I want to do something about it. How do I start?
How old were you when you started doing laundry? Do you think I am asking too much of them?
Now this friend of mine had a lot of crimethinc posters and it looked like it was probably from a similar type of publisher, but I can't find any reference to it when I search for the caption or in crimethinc's site.
Has anyone seen this picture or this poster? Know where I can get it? Who published it?
I've got a laptop. Dell Inspiron 600m. Name: Ecto-1.
Both have Windows XP. Both have usb slots. And I have a usb cord.
Is there anyway I can use the usb to connect the two and move data from Pocky to Ecto? Would I need to download any software? Or would it just better to invest in about 30 gigs worth of disks?
((And random shoutout of thanks to everyone who's previously answered my ridiculous questions.))
what do you think this will cost me?
So, any tips on how to do a really good presentation? or any ideas for good information to put in my power point about customer service? Oh and thru a few internet searches I found some general information about like "a dissatisfied customer tells ten friends about their dissatisfaction while a satisfied custmer only tells 5 friends that they're satisfied" do you think it would be bad to include that without any specific source? I don't want to put it in and then have them ask me where I got that data from. ya know?
a-Have a friend who you betrayed, unintentionally, show up at your house and shout at you in person?
b-Have a friend who you hurt, unintentionally, write you a heartfelt letter explaining just how much harm you did, although it was unintentional?
c-Have a friend who you lied to tell your parents about what you've really been up to? (if this doesn't apply to you now, think back to a time when it would have)
d-Have a friend who you did all of the above to come to your house and punch you in the face?
2. Are you more inclined to let things go easily, or do you like to get revenge? Give an example, if you could - best revenge or how proud you were of letting someone off the hook for a mistake.
3. Would you bother trying to change someone's hurtful behavior after you are no longer friends, or just leave it alone and move on?
4. In what situations would you abandon a friend?
5. Which hurts more; losing a friend because they didn't like how you were acting, or a friend telling you they thought how you were acting was stupid?
Would it hold too many memories or just be linked forever with that marriage, so you pass on it? What about furniture? dishes and other personal items?
Should i try to start as fresh as i can(but i have no income) or try to make do with the stuff for awhile then get rid of it and its bad karma(or just memories) as i can?
AND also. You are also pregnant with his child. Does that child get the fathers last name or yours? (i know its my choice, just wondering opinions). Does it matter if he wants anything to do with the child? or whether its a boy or girl?
And most importantly:
Does anyone know of any GOOD lawyers in Idaho or Washington?. Low income/sliding scales/pro-bono sorts of things if possible.
any other tips for me?
I travel to work on the interstate (I-81) everyday and it seems like there are always truckers honking at me when I pass them. It startled me at first, I thought that there was something wrong with my car. Then I thought they were just horny guys honking at me, but then I asked my mom and she said it happens to her as well (not that she's ugly, but i doubt truckers would honk at my mom.) Anyone have a clue what this is about? It's always just a one honk kind of deal while i'm passing them.
Okay, so the benign-looking trees I'd been parking my (pretty much new) car under decided to unleash a rain of happy little sap droplets recently. This pine-scented pestilence has affixed itself to my windshield, making the visibility peppered with smears. I've learned my lesson, but now I need to get my view back. I've done a lot of google hunting for solutions, and I've come up with a lot of arguments, but no clear cut safe solution.
I've come here looking for some first hand experience; o knowledgeable question club, what has (and hasn't) SAFELY worked for you when trying to remove tree sap? (If I do get this stuff off, I'm heading straight to the car wash to get it waxed afterwards.)
(In particular - does anyone know whether Nevada is or not?)
What is the longest time you would leave your cat home alone for? Like.... if you left in the morning on a friday, would you leave it alone till Sun. Evening?
Question two: I love watching interesting videos of instruments being played in new ways like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FujgZyCn31k
Or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVsFfzB-0hs
Or just plain people who are amazing at their craft, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VAkOhXIsI0
The problem is, someone sent me all of these links and I haven't had any luck trying to find more stuff like this. Could you please link me to any videos you know of that have people playing instruments or singing in new and interesting or amazing ways?
Yes, you may call me gullible, or easily manipulated. But I'm just confused.
If you have, what made you make that decision?
What did they do? (details are great, please)
I have a long history of ear problems (tons of ear infections), I have tinnitus occasionally, and my ears constantly click when I swallow (I don't know if that's a problem or not). Recently I was discussing live music with someone and I commented that I can never hear the keyboards or the female background singers, and she suggested that it might help if I got my ears cleaned. I should probably get them looked at anyway since I'm a musician, but I was just wondering if anybody had had their ears cleaned and noticed a significant difference afterwards. That and I just feel strange wanting to get my ears cleaned anyway.
does the thought of wearing contacts bother you?
Are you a boy or a girl? Do you think that if you were the opposite sex it would effect you differently?
Edit: Okay, I wasn't clear enough, I'm sorry. I'm not talking about disgusting man legs, but still a noticable amount of light hair only when it's the sun. Indoors, you really can't tell.
Did you ever have a skip-it? I loved those things.
