. Do you like your name?
. Do you have any nicknames?
. Did your parents have any alternate choices for names for you?
. What would you have been named if you had been a different gender?
Mine is Arianna. I like it a lot, though I did not used to when I was a child. My nickname is "Ari". Originally, I was supposed to be named either Hannah or Nicole, but she chose Arianna in the end. If I were a boy, she would've named me Seth.
I know there is a community for those who love the nuva ring, but what about those who are just 'ok' with being on the nuvaring? What are your good/bad reviews of being on the nuvaring?
Such as what programs I need, if there's some type of website I can do it on, etc.
Where can I find a server to stream shoutcast off of?
Today I was driving home from school and I got behind a transfer truck that had its emergency lights flashing. To my surprise, he never pulled off the road and just kept driving. It was about 10 miles before he finally turned his emergency lights off and continued on his merry way.
TQC, I ask you: Why on earth did he have his emergency lights flashing?
If other, plz specify in comments.
And which one of you bastards broke my heater? D:
do you have a blog, other than LJ?
WHY ON EARTH IS MY DOG WHINING?
2. How irrational would it be to pick up and leave the country for another one, without much warning to anyone else?
3. Have you ever discovered something so terrible that you wish you had never found out about it, even though it would be irresponsible to not know?
I made a comment about how I don't know any man who would be willing to support his non-working wife, and a lot of people said they knew lots of men who would be willing to. It baffles me because everyone I know has a strong hatred for "gold-diggers" (male or female) and wants a partner who makes an equal financial contribution to the relationship.
So my hopefully non-wank-inducing question is, would you support an able-bodied, non-working spouse/partner? What is your mentality behind it?
I'm more interested in the second part than the first. I would feel really used and taken advantage of if I was in that position, and I'm curious how other people apparently don't and even encourage their partners to not work.
1. Is there some reason to use software to copy, edit & burn your CDs?
2. Have you ever gone dumpster diving?
a. what did you find?
b. do you go often or not?
(BTW, this bunch of goods were from a store that was tossing returns/clearance items, stores throw away a lot of good stuff)
"The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger
"A Taste For It" by Monica McInerney
"Company" by Max Berry
Which of those three would you download for your next book to read? Keep in mind you like a little humor and quirkiness in the author's style.
2) Weather In an unrelated matter, what's the weather like where you are? (Where are you?) My fingers are nearly frozen here in northern CA.
3) Hair! What do you do when no amount of hair junk (spray, gel, etc) will keep curls in your hair? And I really need some help with this one - the wedding is less than a week away and I cannot for the life of me keep my hair curly/wavy/not crappy for more than an hour. This is unacceptable. My hair is thick, longish, and very dry & damaged if that helps with suggestions. (*edit* And I'm not the bride and I'm flat broke, so going to a professional? Not happening.)
Do you always try everything on?
In the try-on stalls, if it's allowed, do you ever have whoever you're with go in the stall with you?
Why exactly do certain shops not allow more than one person in a stall anyway?
How often, if ever, do you buy clothes online? Where? (ebay and similar sites, store/designer sites, or both?)
I get kind of annoyed when I see people listing off a million bands, as if that makes up for their lack of an interesting personality. Having said that, I do tend to judge people on the type of music to a point; if I see people that share similar musical tastes, I imagine that I would get along well with them, since it takes a special type of person to enjoy the weird stuff I like.
What books were you required to read for school?
Of those books which ones did you actually enjoy?
Cockroaches gross me out, but I have absolutely no qualms about killing them, as long as I don't physically touch them.
Bees and wasps frighten me. If I get stung by a bee, I get a fever and wherever I've been stung swells. Wasps frighten me, because they can just keep stinging. :O!
[This question has been brought to you by Resident Evil 0 and it's giant cockraoches.]
i could have misplaced one or two of the discs that come with the original Sims2, and i want to know how many there are supposed to be. So far i've dug up four discs, are there anymore???
ALSO, do you know of any easier way to start over (ex: the people in the already made towns start off fresh, uneffected by what i've done to them in the past) withought having to uninstall it???
EDIT: ok so i have all the discs, and its asking for an installation code in a white box. i know for a fact its on the manual but i dont have the manual anymore!!!! please, is each code invidvidual, or is it universal? if its universal can someone PLEASE tell me the code!?
a million thank you's to anyone who helps me out!!!
So girls, how does it feel to receive oral sex from someone with a tongue stud?
2. How did you find/hear about the Question Club?
3. Have any of you worked at a bookstore? What was it like/did you enjoy it?
4. Are you going to use LJ Talk?
edit: 5. Have you ever worn the same outfit twice in two days in a row even though you could have put something else on? I did that today. I woke up a bit late, and figured since I don't see people today that I saw yesterday, no big deal! I'm not a scrub though. really. This was a one-time thing.
How would you define the phrase "first love"-- is it the first person you were in love with? Or is it simpler than that, and the first person you dated? the first person you had a massive crush on? The first person who broke your heart? etc.
I can't remember what my least favorite was, though I never ate those "Boston Baked Beans" candy because they looked weird to me.
If I ever got a Mr. Goodbar, they were allllll miiiiiine.
i'm in a bit of a pickle. you see, i must have a costume for halloween. normally, this would not be a problem for myself, but there are obsticles.
you see, i work in a night club. in my position at the nightclub, i have to have full range of motion, full visiablity, and pockets. it appears the pockets is the most difficult part . . .
basically, i'm a pretty standard guy. i just can't come up with something to wear that gives me all three of these necessities.
so, dear question club, got any ideas for me?
There's a really long webpage that I just want to put a link to a specific section of. Otherwise people will have to use "find" or scroll through pages of text. I know it's doable because my browser does it all the time and I've clicked links before that do it.
So my question is.. Do you think that what hand you write with has an impact on what boob is bigger? Because I'm right handed so I use that side alot more than I do my left side..I thought maybe the chest muscles were being more active or something?...
Also, I think a NYC taxi driver cheated me the other day.
I got in the cab on W 34th st and I asked him to take me to the nearest E or F train stop. He insisted that he take me all the way home because the trains were running slow. He asked where I was going and I told him St. Johns University in Queens. He said the fare would be about 40$. I told him I only had $35 and he agreed. So we're on our way to my school...I'd say more than half way there..the meter reads $16 dollars and then he turns the meter off...so it stopped calculating the distance and fare, etc.
He ends up charging me the said $35 dollars but I just have a feeling that I was jipped. Does anyone know the fare "scale" for NYC taxis? Like, $2.50 initial charge and .50 every 1/4 mile after that or something like that?
Thanks alot in advance. Sorry for the long windedness.
If so, why?
Hell for that matter, if not, why?
Do you think people expect you to do this after they friend you and to know everything about their life on LJ?
I usually go back a couple of weeks just to get an idea of what's "up" with them. Other than that I don't unless given a reason, like they mention something they posted "way back when".
Am I a lazy person for wanting to leave work right now and just nap?
(the last nap I took was a couple of months ago)
Part 2) I watched 'Friends with Money' this weekend and it made me wonder, does everyone clean their house before the cleaning lady comes, or do you really think that people leave their nastiness all around for the cleaner?
That's the site.
What's your favorite game show(s) of all time?
The Price is Right, followed closely by Press Your Luck (No Wammies!) and Family Feud
Anyone know of any communities that have people that actually interact with folks on LJ, not just people looking to up the numbers on their userinfo?
i had the paper-rubbish from the sub on top of the tray. i went to tip the paper rubbish into the bin and then bus the tray.
but my friend was talking about which cookies to get and i was totally distracted and realised after hearing a 'thud' that i let go of the tray as well.
have you ever done something like this?
what did you do?
EG: Would you rather a say... chicken, cheese and coleslaw sandwich had the right amount of each filling in each bite, but not a large amount of filling, or one that had loads of the three fillings, but some bites have nothing but coleslaw, and others nothing but cheese?
You can't open the sandwich up and re-arrange the filling.
what are important human rights issues to your locality (and where are you from)?
who would win in a fight human rights or natural law?
how would you try to achieve social justice?
in what instances do you believe human rights have gone to far?
.. or not far enough? pragmatically, if you were in charge of the world, how would you make human rights work?
(i have a presentation on friday and am planning to ask these questions at the end)
Anyway, does anybody know how to lookup info from one table and autopopulate another table?
I'm trying to get it so the PO date auto-populates in the Invoice form when you type in the PO number.
I'm wanting to create a formula/expression where the default value of the PO date in the Invoice form will look at the PO number in the same form so it can look in the Purchase Order table to find that PO #'s creation date and finally populate the PO date in the Invoice form.
Hopefully that isn't too confusing. So PO date looks at PO number. PO number sifts the Purchase Order table to find the same PO number. Grabs PO creation date from Purchase Order table and brings it back to Invoice table where it populates PO date.
I'm trying to get rid of most human errors and to make it quicker. I know you can do this in Excel and it seems like this should be entirely capable in Access because it's a convenient formula.
*sigh* I like excel so much better though.
My ans: I want to know how it feels like to have a penis. Just curious. :p
And how it's like to be really tall.
All the websites we found it on seem to think it's really funny that the guy is standing there...but we're more curious. So, anybody know anything about this picture?
You're given a strange offer. You can have a million dollars, but in exchange, on the day you die, your death will be excrutiatingly painful, will take 2 hours, and you will die alone. Lots of money in exchange for a death full of agony. Would you accept the money?
Congratulations! You have super powers! You have superhuman strength and can fly. Unfortunately, your powers only operate within a 100 mile radius in Montana, which spans 3 smallish towns. Outside that radius, you're normal. Do you move to that part of Montana?
You can have a one-hour lunch with any famous dead person, from the list below. A translating device is on the table, so you can both communicate without any problem. Who do you pick?
What would you rather have?
Where you live...
Do you have dedicated bike lanes? Are bikes allowed on buses/trains? Do the drivers respect the cyclists? How bicycle friendly is your city?
1. What's your favorite quote from anything/one?
2. If anyone has a deviantART account, do you use it primarily for fanart/fic or original stuff?
3. Does anyone else find the sitcom 'We were best friends through every single season and eventually realised we were in TWOO WUV after dropping not-so-subtle hints for the last few seasons and now we're dating' thing a little.. erm.. annoying?
My question: why is there a bike, not put together, still in the box, sitting at reception? There are no shipping labels on this box and someone poked a large enough hole that I can tell it really is a bike that's in there.
Oh, and everyone is claiming to not know anything about it.
What the hell is wrong with it?
This information gets back to the 16 year olds girlfriend who calls you wanting answers. You tell her that you did not fuck her boyfriend & never would, so please fuck off. Drama ensures.
If these drugs can help a normal student reach superhuman levels of concentration (while they tend to simply level the playing field for ADD/ADHD students) and get a lot more work done academically, should neurotypical students be allowed to use them to unleash their fullest potential?
Being an ADDer myself, I'd be really wary of using these medicines on people who don't really need them. My intuition tells me this could lead to a lot of abuse, especially in the current US culture which is urging parents to push their children harder and harder to be academic superstars at increasingly younger ages. I also have this feeling that the neurotypical brain could be overwhelmed by this kind of thing, not already being used to a deficit (however, I'm no neurologist.) People are already using these drugs in this way, though. It concerns me.
2. Has anyone else ever read books by Gerald Durrell? Do you like them?
3. Do you like books by Susanna Clarke?
4. Which do you like better; spiced apple cider or hot chocolate?
5. Favorite Starbucks drink, ever?
i.e. I have a bone to pick with you, throw me a bone people...
Can you come up with some other good ones, using, bones, ribs, skulls etc......
1. Does anyone remember the books (I think they were books?) that had pages and pages of different faces, features and clothes (...) that you could trace to make different people? I loved those and can't remember what they were called. They were goofy looking
a. Does anyone know where I might be able to find them?
2. Do you remember Yikes pencils?
3. Did you ever play with a skip-it?
Give me the most obscure (but existing) fetish you know of.
What's so different about it than 1.5?
EDIT: ha, literally one minute after i posted that they postponed the game.
For a collage, if it helps any.
a.) Go to bed immediately and catch a few hours of sleep and then wake up super early to complete it, or
b.) Work through the night on the assignment and then go to sleep after completion?
2.) Say you choose the second option, and after you finish the task, you look at the clock. You figure out that if you give yourself only thirty minutes to get ready, you can catch only two hours of sleep before you have to return to work/school. Do you;
a.) Take the two hours of rest ?
b.) Stay awake?
3.) Shittiest all-nighter you've ever had?
Has anyone ever been personally offended while watching South Park?
Nope, but I don't really watch it every week either, only when I hear about controversial episodes.
2. If you had $44 in your PayPal account, what would you buy?
3. When you're dating someone, do you normally assume that it's an exclusive relationship, i.e., what people used to call "going steady"?
4. Where you live, when the traffic signals change from stop to go, does the opposing going-straight traffic get to go first, or the turning traffic? Where do you live?
( Collapse )
I'm going to a show there next week. My aunt who lives in the cities said that its in a really shady neighborhood... of course, this may just be her version of shady...
