What is the purpose of the "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd" reference in a DOCTYPE declaration?
Does this only exist to facilitate validating the page's markup -- in the event that someone or something wants to do so?
Or does the browser attempt to connect to this location and parse this DTD file each time the page loads? Surely to God that's not the case ... right?
2.) to put it bluntly, how do i find a boyfriend?
3.) do you think family guy is funny?
I'm a grad student and a teaching assistant in my department, and as part of being a TA I'm required to have office hours. I don't mind chatting a little with friends during that time, but since my hours are long I like to bring articles to read. The problem is, one of my colleagues/classmates can't seem to understand that I might actually like to be able to focus on the very complex stuff I'm reading, and will interrupt me to make random comments or ask for help on her homework every minute or so (which doesn't leave me enough time to get through much).
I don't want to be rude because came in at the same time I did, and as a result of that and our similar academic interests we tend to wind up in a lot of the same classes. That, and I just see no point in being rude if I can avoid it. I've tried things like putting on a headset, but she keeps talking anyway and if I turned the music up loud enough to drown her out it would become distracting. I've also tried continuing to read/look at my article while she talks, but that doesn't work either. At this point in the semester I can't change the time of my office hours (it would completely screw up my schedule) and there's really no other place for me to hold them. Any ideas?
I can't stand the fact that where I live (India), there's actually no real concept of a queue or line. I can stand there politely waiting my turn to order or whatever and some asshole will just barge right past me. This happens often, almost daily. And I'm way too small to ever pick a fight so I just grit my teeth and bear it. At the McDonald's outside my house (where they serve no beef, btw) the guys behind the counter usually try to serve whoever was there first, but at the Subway's (and most other places) people would just cut in front of me and get served first, as in most places here, since culturally it's just not really rude to do that here (the agony). Granted its something that would piss anyone off, but my point is that its just not commonly seen as rude here. Of all the things I've gotten used to from a culture-clash standpoint (and the list is very, very long), thats one of the things that still manages to really piss me off, and regularly :-/
We use Excel constantly at my workplace (Rave Motion Pictures) and I want to simplify our concession ordering procedure. Essentially, I need the following story to have a happy ending via a formula that I don't know how to write:

I just need a program that lets me double space and seperate my work into pages.
This must be true. Cappy just sat in there and dug a freaking hole to China.
I know that you can take a Chihuahua outside and play with it and such, but can you do that with a Yorkie? They seem a little more fragile than Chihuahuas. Right now we're leaning more toward a Chihuahua, but I have always wanted a Yorkie. So, is a Yorkie the kind of dog you can take to the beach/carry around? Does anyone know? :-[
2. How important is it to you for a movie to have death or a dead body in it? I just realized several of my very favorite movies usually have one or the other in them.
3. The last dream I remember having was about heat-seeking missles. What was the last dream you remember having about?
4. Would you date a step sibling if you didn't grow up together?
5. Did you ever eat paste? Or anything else that isn't exactly edible?
It Animal Crossing (for the DS) worth getting?
What are your thoughts on it?
Thank you :)
Lately he has been waiting outside my bedroom door when I get up in the morning, which is weird because he isn't allowed upstairs and he has never had a problem following rules before. He's been acting scared a lot, too, and right now he's at the bottom of the stairs whining at me. We've been out 4 or 5 times this morning, but apparently that's not what he wants.
I am in Cambodia and I got sick...
It's an ear-infection bronchial thing....
I went through 2 courses of antibiotics - the first time something related to penicillin, the second time on Cipro. Five days, each time...
Now I'm on Amoxacillin, 500 mg 2x a day, and I'm going to do maybe 7 days? It's been 3 already and I have only a very slight nagging soreness or something - hardly anything anymore... My neck nodes are a bit swollen...
I can go to Bangkok in about a week, and I've been sick for maybe 2 months - I really ignored it for as long as I could.
So the questions are:
What should I do?
Am I breeding some sort of super-bug, or what, and if so, what should I do with it?
And, on an unrelated note:
Why is it that common sense is not so common?
I have off december 22-24 and need to be back home by no later than 9 am on christmas day.
our options are drive to disney world the night of the 21 and spend the 22,23 and until 5 pm on the 24 with his family at disney. (note we just got back from disney on oct. 30)
drive up to nyc and come home the night of the 24th. neither of us has been to nyc and it would be a 5 hour drive as opposed to a 15 hour drive each way.
which would you choose?
and unfortunately flying is not an option.
is there a way to burn paid for movies from itunes onto a dvd?
What's your job on the ship?
You spy a blue alien humanoid. What do you do?
Biggest threat for you in space?
Why did you join the Federation?
I'm so glad I'm not the only one with this problem. It's such a pain in the ass! I will hold it for DAYS to avoid other people hearing. Freaks unite!
( Collapse ) have a job interviews upcoming in a couple days and have absolutely nothing to wear. I'm talking three pairs of pants, a ripped skirt, couple sweatesr, and a bunch of t-shirts nothing. (We just moved 3000 miles in a tiny car; most of our stuff is in shipping boxes somewhere between CA an GA right now.)
So I need to go shopping for an outfit of presentable clothes, and hopefully spend less than $100. Suggestions?
1b. Do you consider as good or better than chicken?
2. Do you like pumpkin pie?
3. Do you like yams and things made from them?
4. Aside from the above, is there other traditional Thanksgiving stuff that you don't like?

Where will Britney Spears be in 10 years?
Bonus points for creativity.
Are you doing anything similar to your child self's wish?
2) Favourite video game?
3) Did you grow up and become what you wanted to be when you were a little kid?
4) Favourite show on the Discovery Channel?
5) Hell to the fifth question.

i'm making faux chicken pot pie for the main dish and then all the regular stuff.
Mine would be this.
Do you collect anything holiday related?

is the episode "sleeping with the enemy" (where marge adopts nelson and lisa is anorexic) made to be different than the other episodes? it seems to be a lot more realistic than other episodes and has camera angles, and maggie actually being a charecter than a prop, it seems really weird to me when i'm watching it?
is the part where homer draws a cartoon of himself metafiction?
have you noticed homer's ears and hair makes the initials "M.G"?
in the episode homer smokes weed, marge says "we're all out of cupcakes and paperclips" what would he have used the paper clips for? all i can think of is a poking device
he also says "it makes everything funny, even the program that comes on after friends"
what would have been played after friends? i guessed it was the simpsons
what smokings games are there?
in american films, students smoking cannabis always seem to have huge bags so
- what is the usual weight for weed and how much does it cost? is it thc or bushweed?
Do you think sometimes the mistranslation is intentional?
I went to a market recently. They had a childrens toy, one of those things where you press say a cow pic, that has "cow" written under it & it goes "moo".
The one I saw was had picture of a bear with "swine" written under it that said "ribbit".
I just don't know how that could be an accident.
2. What's the most interesting thing you found out regarding your ancestor(s)?
3. What's the worst thing that happened during a job interview you went on?
4. What do you think of Chicago (the musical and/or movie)?
What are those elves? Every holiday I see them, and my mom owned a few Santas.
2 If you could have any book/tv/movie doctor and/or nurse treat you illness and spend time at your bedside, who would you choose?
3 I'm having an ultrasound on Friday and should hopefully find out if my baby is a boy or a girl - what do you think it is? (and I've already had guesses of unicorn, pirate, ninja and robot)
thanks - Heather
Recently I've seen This Clearasil commercial featuring Danny Masterson and a raisin bran commercial that looks very 1980.
Is there any juice these days that isn't made with concentrate?
My answers, which partially explain why I'm curious?
Subarus. I don't understand why-- but both my friend's Subaru Legacy and my mom's Subaru Outback make me really sick. Maybe I only get into nauseating situations before riding with them, but I don't get it. My mom's has leather seats, which is part of it, I thought, but my friend's is cloth. Wtf?
kind of NSFW, some bad language, and the video is quite loud because of the screaming. no gore or blood though.

My dad said he'd buy me a new digital camera for xmas, and I've been searching for a month, but there are so many different ones that I'm having trouble finding one to suit my needs.
I know that i DEFINATLY need white balance, macro mode, and at least 4-5 megapixels.
Other than that, everything else is a bouns. We're looking to spend no more than $500 (canadian).
If you could possibly come up with some suggestions or places i can go that would help, that would be great!
I've seen stuff like size 3, 9, 15, but all the retailers around here carry the even numbered sizes. I've tried googling for odd numbered sizes, and I can't find anything. I think I'm a 15 -- 14 too tight, 16 too loose, but I can't find any place to try them on. Anyone wear odd numbered sizes? Where have you seen them?
ETA: Ok, now that we've established that they're juniors sizes...
How do I fix this problem of being right in the middle of these two sizes? Besides obviously losing more weight, which I'm working on.
EDIT: Have any of you ever been to the Plaza? What was your experience like?
Today I got the check, and it was only 134.70 - taxed.
Everyone was having a fit, because we all thought we were getting 200 dollars, and it's what we signed up for.
Is that, right? And allowed?
How do I make him miss me more? (I'm not being cruel, I just want him to miss me a bit more than he does)
Do you hold back the problems and stress in your life until later in the relationship, or do you just let it all out early?
And do you expect the same from them?
So what is the best moisterizer without being over $10 a bottle? I normally have oily skin, but it's been really dry lately, so I'd like to avoid something greasy in case it decides to be oily again and break out horribly.
b. where're you from?
2. a. do you like mince pies? do you think they are an adequate holiday dessert?
3. a. you're 5 months pregnant, your boyfriend decides to go to rehab, what do you think?
b. he confronted you about cheating on national tv, but, SURPRISE! the guy you're boning on the side gets arrested cause there was a warrant for his arrest. all things considered, how do you justify how horrible your bangs are?
c. will you get your bangs fixed before you go on maury to determine the paternity of your child?
4. what do you think about the assassination of pierre gemayel?
5. do you think "part time student" is a legitimate occupation?
edit/ youtube link? :)
How much do you think a thank you letter matters? I reeeeally want this job.
What's the stupidest thing you've heard lately?
Have you ever gone speed dating?
If you have, what was your experience?
If not, would you ever try it?
I'm bored and I think this would be something that people would have interesting stories about.
