In your opinion, does the Baptist denomination carry a more negative connotation in society than most other Christian denominations? Why?

does anyone know about how many pounds a scale on carpet would be wrong by?  if it would be wrong at all.

we just moved into a temporary apartment that has a carpeted bathroom floor (kitchen is carpet too), so i was wondering how off the reading might be.

thanks!

Do you believe in fate?
Do you believe people keep coming back into your life for a reason?
With a few people, I'll know them really well or I'll only have one memorable experience with them, then 10 years later they come back into my life out of nowhere. The good friend thing is more understandable, but the ones you rarely know that end up becoming a big part of your life later...its a bit eerie, eh?

I'm very confused.

So my mom's best friend was on vacation this weekend. Yesterday at 9 she dropped off her dog for us to watch just for the night. She's a 3 year old yellow lab and pretty big, maybe 80 pounds. She was fine until late this afternoon. My mom took her over to her house to play around in the grass for a while. The dog stayed by my mom's side and wouldn't run around at all. My mom figured she was depressed about being away from her house, so my mom took her over there and let her into the backyard. The dog still wouldn't move, she just looked around. I came home around 11 tonight and the dog was on my living room floor lying down on her big pillow. My mom told me she'd been gagging earlier on food and dry heaving. She said she'd called her best friend on vacation and the friend told her the dog does that and it was nothing unusual. I tried to get her to come in my room and lie down under the fan because she was panting but she wouldn't move. I carried her water bowl over to her and she wouldn't drink from it. I tipped a little bit of water into her mouth and I let her rest. Next time I saw her she was lying down under a windowsill away from her pillow and toys. So an hour ago my mom came into my room crying and told me the dog had died. Wtf? She walked into my mom's room and died on the floor.

- She's been eating food from her own house out of her own dishes.
- She doesn't eat people food.
- She's not aggressive
- We had a dog for 14 years, so I really doubt it was something we did

What the hell happened? Can dogs die because they miss their owners? What would cause a seemingly healthy dog to just drop dead in the middle of the night? My mom's freaking out because she thinks she's going to lose her best friend. How would you react if you were her?

Thanks.

Edit: The puppy died of bloat. Apparently it is the second leading cause of death in dogs and kills in less than an hour without warning. It requires emergency surgery which is rarely successful. The veterinarian said it was caused by a change of household and stress and the puppy eating a "greenie" bone which the friend gave her. She is also upset but not angry with us which is good; it wasn't our fault. Thanks everyone

Just looking for some advice, not a diagnosis.
My cat has been limping since last night, it's her front right paw. She doesn't seem to be too distressed by it, but she's keeping her weight off it and is purring constsntly. The ankle seems a little swollen, she can flex her claws and move it ok.
She's about 18 years old. I don't live at home and am only here for today, all the vets around us are closed today and I'm not sure if I can afford a vets bill right now.
What should I do?

Is it actually possible to find a good relatively inexpensive LCD? From all the reviews I've read they each have something wrong with them. Either the lighting is too much, or there are dead pixels, or you can adjust the stand, or they're not good for DVD playback, or something or other. I'm looking for a general purpose LCD, around 19", no more than $300.

Btw, anyone else experience that ViewSonic support sucks? Told me the wait would be 4 minutes, so I waited for half an hour, then the chick got on the phone and said that unless I had the refresh frequency set to 60Hz, the monitor wouldn't work. So I figure that's the solution and stupidly enough hang up. Of course that does nothing, so I call back, wait again... then it turns out that the resolution needs to be set to 1280x1024 because it's its native resolution, and the monitor won't work otherwise... I ask her if the monitor supports any other resolutions.. at first she says no, then she says that it does, but I'd have to set them. Huh? no shit! So anyway, I had to return the monitor (ViewSonic VA1912wb). Dunno if the model is actually good, but they gotta do something about their support.

What do you think is the right time to ask your SO to marry you? As in - how far into the relationship, and at what age (edit: or not so much age, as which phase in a person's life) should the two people involved be? If you look around in your family and circle of friends, how much time did/do they take generally speaking?

A few weeks ago I cut off about 10 inches of my hair and donated it to Locks of Love. Now I'm left with short hair that I dont particularly like.

My question is: What can I do with hair this length? (Refer to pictures)
I've just been throwing in this ribbon thing that you can just barely see in the photos, and my hair isnt quite long enough to put into a ponytail. Any ideas would be nice, something pretty and easy would be best. I havent had short hair in so long, and even when I used to, I was a kid and sort of just let it be.


EDIT: I'm looking more for ideas of what to do with it that could be done in less than half an hour, things other than leaving it straight, ponytails, or headbands. Anything kinda cute would be nice.

Pictures to help with this decision...Collapse )

I'm driving my car with a donut on it, because apparently the bald one is *too* bald.
It's in the back, and my car is front wheel drive. I drive a Honda Accord..if that makes any difference.
Which is better?

How do you like your potatoes?
I like mine either mashed with butter, and garlic, and salt, OR baked with sour cream, butter, salt, and garlic.
Both are unhealthy, but DELICIOUS!

Do you smoke pot? Do you look down on people who do?
I smoke very occasionally, and I don't really care if people smoke or not.

Here's the deal. My dad doesn't want to switch from PC to Mac because he likes playing Spider solitaire and Freecell solitaire (the preloaded Windows XP games).

First off, why would they be different? Second, does anybody know if they are different? Or, anybody with the "Mondo Solitaire" widget installed, could you do a screencap of both of these games?

Also, so this post is relevant, Mac vs PC. Opinions?

I finished watching the documentary Shelter Dogs not too long ago and it made me curious enough to ask this question here in good ol' TQC.

Which would you rather see happen: a dog is surrendered to a no-kill animal shelter, where he lives out his days alone in a cement cell, or a non-adoptable dog being put to sleep so he doesn't have to live a life of misery?* (By non-adoptable, I mean the dog has severe temperamental problems, can't be placed around other animals or children, is terminally ill, etc.) Please elaborate.

Also: to all of the cat & dog owners, are all of your pets spayed & neutered?



* I tried to word the question without making it seem as though I'm leaning a certain way. I'm strictly interested in your opinions & thoughts on this.
