1. You're at a concert. A fifteen year old kid who is too cool for school is next to you smoking a cigarette, not inhaling, and pretty much blowing the smoke in your face. Would you ask him to put it out? If so, and then he didn't, what do you think of him?

2. You're at a concert again, lucky you. A thirty year old guy with a big bushy beard and tattoos is enjoying a cigarette next to you and the smoke is getting in your face. Would you ask him to put it out? If so, and then he didn't, what do you think of him?

3. If you had to choose between your child becoming a successful professional athlete/actor/singer/whatever who has millions of dollars but is slightly depressed due to his fame, or an average joe who makes okay money and is okay with his life, which would you rather have?

1a. A few seasons ago on American Idol, a man auditioned with a Kelly Clarkson song. His voice sounded like a woman's. My Googling sucks tonight. Does anybody know where I can find this video?
1b. Was the man Ross The Intern from Jay Leno?

2. For those of you that are on your feet a lot at work, what kind of shoes do you wear? I work anywhere from 4 to 8 hours at a time with almost no time to sit. I currently have these, but my feet were still killing me by the end of my seven hour shift today. I'd wear my Crocs, but I'm not sure they'd be allowed.

3a. Socks with sandals - yes or no?
3b. Socks with Crocs - yes or no? (I decided today that this is the most comfortable thing ever.)

2. Has anyone here used will call to pick up tickets before? Do you have to have to print out the page that pops up with your confirmation number on it, or is it okay to just have your confirmation number written down on another paper and your ID to be able to pick them up?

3. What the hell are the convenience/order processing charges that Ticketmaster tacks onto everything even for?

And i respond: "eh, yeah, but we've been seeing eachother for 2 weeks now. Do you want more coffee?"

Culture and learning styles [Oct. 11th, 2006|09:45 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[sophiedoph]
I finally picked a topic for my seminar paper... and I'm curious as to people's real life experiences.

My topic is learning style, culture, and education. Basically, the idea that minorities are compelled to "act white" to succeed in school, that cultural learning styles and values are not taken into consideration and it can be very difficult to achieve in a majority-run education system.

If you are a minority, to what extent do you think any school struggles you may have experienced were because you were expected/required to "assimilate" or "act white"? Do you think your learning style was accomodated in school? Do you think your culture's primary learning style is different than the majority's?

You have a friend who won't listen. He doesn't want to talk about it. The information you can give him would help him be proactive instead of reactive but he just doesn't want to hear it. He would rather talk about something else. Something that he really likes to talk about it.

Do you try to get him to listen or do you let sleeping dogs lie?

My stomach hurts. It started this morning (it is about 1PM now), and it's progressively gotten worse, although it did go away long enough for me to eat lunch. If I think about food now I want to throw up. Other than that, I don't really feel nauseated (maybe a little, but not a lot). It's not cramping, but it does hurt (obviously). I haven't eaten anything weird within the past 24+ hours either.

Does anyone know what kind of pain I'm talking about? What can I do to make it go AWAY? Please, anything. I feel like shit.

1. For those of you with children, particularly boys, would you ever buy your son one of those kitchen playsets? My son played with one a few months ago and I thought about getting him his own for Christmas. My sister thinks its too feminine, but I don't. Besides, they show boys playing with it on the box.

2. Does anyone know how to program a Texas Instruments TI-83 plus calculator? I need to program a few formulas and I can't figure it out. I don't have the book and I'm not that tech savvy.

3. Back to the Christmas thing, does anyone start their shopping really really early? Early as in like, October? Or am I the only one? I hate the bad weather and the cold, so I try to get all of my shopping done before the rush.

She's been really stressed and working a lot and I know for a fact she'd really appreciate it if the house were a little cleaner when she got home. What are some age-appropriate ways I could involve the kids with cleaning up? How could I make it seem more like a game than work?

And also, so we don't spend the *entire* time in front of the TV... what are some fun things to do that would involve both kids? The 2 year old is just getting over being sick, and neither I nor my sister have much money, so going almost anywhere is out.

1. What music player do you use on your computer?
2. What playlists do you have set up?
3. Do you use your smart playlists?
4. What's your favorite playlist? Why?

ETA Smart playlists are playlists that the program makes for you based on certain criteria. For example, you create a playlist for all song with a playcount of "0" and the program updates the playlist as old songs are listened to and new songs are added. At least that's how it works in iTunes. :-)

1. iTunes

2. my Driving Mix & the Unplayed Driving Mix (the same playlist but only the songs with a "0" playcount.) All Unplayed songs. Recently Added Songs. The Top 25 Played songs. A Mix of my favorite female artists. Songs that my roommates and I sing along to. My various playlists for my show on my college radio station. My Holiday music and my list of rated songs which are usually rated to be deleted.

3. Yes. They make my unplayed lists and my top 25 lists and the similar ones. Plus I use the comments to make up my Driving playlists.

4. My favorite right now is my female artists mix because I just made it this afternoon. It wasn't really intended to be a female artists mix, it just happened that all the songs I wanted to hear were from female artists.

I'm taking a biology class and we have to do an outside project where we have to test a hypothesis.

I'm looking for some volunteers, who would be willing to participate for a month. Would you like to help?

I'm testing to see if a woman's body temperature changes over the course of the menstrual cycle.

Basically I'm looking for women who: go through their menstrual cycles, have a thermometer, and are willing to record their temperature every morning right after they wake up for a month.

If you can't have a period but seem interested in helping me out, my control group will be for women who are not going through menstrual cycles.

Is anyone possibly interested? Please? I have to find a "large" group of women and I'm trying to get 15-20 women to participate so I can get more conclusive data.

Thanks if any of you want to try :)

Edit: I have to head to school, I just wanted to test the waters to see if anyone online would be willing. I'll think of more variables while at school. Thanks again :)

For the people who want children: what's the main reason for wanting them?
For those of you who don't want them: why not?

I personally don't want them because i don't think i'm maternal enough, if i look at how i think a good mother should be, that's the opposite of me.

I have Airborne in the lemon lime flavor, and it tastes too gross for me to finish it. The directions say to dissolve one tablet in "a small amount of water." How much is a small amount? I used 1/2 a bottle of water. Should I use more or less? Is there anything I can do to make the taste tolerable? =( *sniff sniff snot*

Elvis or Beatles? [Oct. 11th, 2006|04:48 pm]

I watched Pulp Fiction recently, and apparently in one of the deleted scenes Uma Thurman's character said that everyone in the world was either an Elvis man or a Beatles man.

So who are you?

I'm an Elvis man definitely.

Edit: Ooh, I'm the minority. =(

Do you feel that the following is a valid and easily answerable question, and is appropriate to assign a 2-3 page (double spaced) paper on? Why/why not?

"How can racial discrimination and racial inequality cause people to have racial prejudice?"

I am not asking you to do my homework for me. I'm just curious to see what people think of the assignment itself.

1.Do you believe in race?
2.If so, what do you understand it to be?

EDIT:3.What does it mean to you personally?
4.Do you think people of different races have inherant (non physical) traits?
5.Are the physical differences important?

1. No
3. Use it for convenience in speach very occasonally, doesn't actually mean anything.
4. No
5. No, there are pretty & ugly people in every "race", tall and short people, etc. so it's a "you're pretty" thing or a "you're tall" thing, not a "you're caucasion" thing.

Let's say you had to contstruct a picture of your personal definition of "cool" (as in the thinking something is appealing to you, not temperature), what would this picture have in it?

So I'm asking you to represent your idea of "cool" with imagry, but you don't have to post a picture, just imagine what it would look like and try to explain it with words.

Travel coffee mug [Oct. 11th, 2006|06:42 pm]

I'm so sad. I left my long-sought-out perfect travel coffee mug (adjustably spill-proof! be-handled! perfectly rounded drinking spout with optimum distance from lip to opening to avoid drippage! kept beverages at the perfect temperature! small enough to fit in my cupholder, large enough to administer the proper dose of coffee! under $15.00! oh, how I loved that mug) at school today, and unless some kindhearted soul lost-and-founds it, I will once again be braving the morning commute with a regular old mug. I originally bought it at Target, and they don't have the kind I had on their website and the closest Target is 45 minutes away (yet another travesty).

So my question is: where can I find another perfect travel mug (extra points for pictures and/or linkage)?

Ugh. I'm so frustrated right now. I have been working my butt off for the last two years, (i'm an english major) and it seems like I just cant for the life of me improve my writing.

I'm constantly getting C's on my essays and Explications. I always think I have a good paper to offer, but my prof's seem to disagree.

How can I improve my writing? I think my biggest problem is that I don't clearly explain my points, or run my essay smoothly.

Can anyone give me tips? This is extremly hard for me to deal with. I'm not used to getting such shitty marks.

There's a concert that I've been looking forward to since August tonight about 30 miles west of my school. There is currently a line of severe thunderstorms moving over my area, and the tornado warning for my town *JUST* ended (three minutes ago, actually), but it's still pretty noisy here. The storms are moving east.

Should I risk going to the concert?

EDIT: Show is Hanzel und Gretyl with Bella Morte. I <3 them.

I was at the doctor's today and noticed sample packets of PMS Escape. I thought the idea was really bizarre and maybe that the product was a bit of a phony. So...

Has anyone ever used this (or a similar product)? Does it actually work? What are the chances of it working like a placebo?

I don't have PMS problems myself, so I didn't bother taking a packet to test it out =P

when you change in a dressing do you strip down to your undies or do you wear formfitting shirts and shorts to prevent contamination from the lady who thought it would be hilarious to spread the contents of her used pad into a pair of maternity jeans?

Furthermore, can you think of a good reason someone (a grown woman) would do that?

On an internet message board, what would you think would be some interesting threads one could make in order to find out more about the people posting there that wouldn't fade out after one day? So something that could be continually discussed or updated, but isn't overly obvious, like a news thread or picture thread.

2. If so, do you have a favorite country as far as movies go?
3. I'm guessing most people that do watch movies with languages that they don't speak watch with subtitles not dubbed but how about you?
4. For those that use subtitles, do you on anime also or do you just dub those?
5. Favorite foreign movie? (always looking for recommendations)
6. If you don't watch foreign movies, why not?

Have you ever had a moment that seems very cliche or like it came from a movie?

I'd liked a guy for three years. One day we were hanging out by a river just being goofy. There was a lot of tension in the air because I wanted to kiss him so badly. When I finally did, it started raining. The scene was amazing, I felt like I was in a movie. I don't think I'll ever forget that.

What's gehelit supposed to be? geheilt? and is lacheln right? i tried it in a translator and it spit it back at me(I know they suck)
