1. Do you think it's possible to love/be in love with 2 (or more) people at once (not talking about being poly, but when you're in a monogamous relationship you fall in love with someone else)
a. Do you tell your SO?
b. What would you do if that other person confessed his/her love to you as well?
c. What would you do if that person told you (s)he wanted to have an affair with you, even if you don't want to end the original relationship?

1) Ever had a weird feeling in the pit of your stomach only to learn not too long after something had happened to someone you cared about?
- I started to feel weird yesterday morning at work around 3:47am. I later learned that my sister was taken to the ER around that time because she was in very intense pain. I also woke up around 11am for some odd reason looked around my room and went back to sleep [I work from 6pm - 6am] and later learned that my mom was taken to the ER as well because she had some allergic reaction to something or other.

2) Can you recommend a good eyeliner and a good website with make-up applying techniques to someone who has yet to learn how properly apply make-up despite being 22 years old...?
- I was using a powder but that smudges after a while creating these awful black lines.

3) What's the most overtime you have ever accumulated in a month?
- So far that would be 76 hours, 40 of which was done in the span of week...

4) What are you looking forward to this weekend?
- Well my weekend official starts at 6am, in which case I plan to get my hair cut, see my best friend (haven't seen her in almost 2 months), visit my old job, pick up a friend from the airport, see another friend I haven't seen in over 4 years, visit my parents (haven't seen them in almost a month) and catch up on my FFXII game (my roommate is ahead of me). I'm just finally happy I don't have to work overtime and will get 3 days off rather than a span of 24 hours that was only done so I can swap from working 6pm - 6am one day to 6am - 6pm the next. Oy...

For those of you who use yahoo mail....do they still have that picture showing thing so that you know it's a secure login?

I never actually set a picture or color display thing, because I'm too lazy, but now the option that used to show up (where the question mark is) isn't showing anymore. I haven't logged in tonight, just in case it's a fake page or something.

So...did they get rid of it, or am I getting redirected to a virusy/phishing page?

1. Has anyone witnessed a family member/close friend on their death bed?

2. Has anyone seen or done something that you know you saw or did but when you tell someone about it, they don't believe you?

1a. I witnessed my grandpa dying. He had been sick for about 4 years before he passed.

2a. Yes, and it involves my grandpa. Something compelled me to go into his room about 5 minutes before he passed away. *Note, my grandpa had been unresponsive and an invalid for 4 years* I walked in and held his hand. He turned his head, winked at me, and passed. I told my dad and grandma about it and still to this day they don't believe me.

Is it possible to get addicted to a certain type of drink after only having it once?

I had a mudslide for the first time on new years and didn't even want to leave the party without it. I've been thinking about it several times a day since new years and considering asking my friend to buy me the mix, which is extremely unlike me.

Alcoholism runs very strong in my family, could this have something to do with it?

Show us your tatts

How many people have accidentally tattooed themselves? Where was it, how did you do it, how long ago was it?

I accidentally stabbed myself in the palm of my left hand with a felt tip pen about 4 and a half years ago. I thought the lid was on the pen. My girlfriend did much the same thing except with a pencil in her right hand, though I think that would classify as an implant. Accidental implants are also welcome, but you have to be able to confirm that they are still there. I don't want to see proof, you just have to know for yourself that they are definately still there.

01: When parking, do you circle the lot, or look for someong going to their car and wait for them to leave?

02: Do you have a favorite T shirt with a logo/graphic on it, what is the graphic of? Why is it your favorite?

03: When you order out, do you get a "usual" or do you try something new?

01: When parking, do you circle the lot, or look for someong going to their car and wait for them to leave?

I circle. I have too short an attention span, to sit and wait. I also don't care, if I have to walk a little further, I usually get there faster than the guy who sits for a stall ten feet from the door.

02: Do you have a favorite T shirt with a logo/graphic on it, what is the graphic of? Why is it your favorite?

I am a sucker for anything with: headphones, speakers, turntables, cassette tapes, on it for a graphic. I have favourite graphic shirts with turntables, cassette tapes and such on them. I love my graphic cotton shirts.

An old favourite of mine had an alien head on it, but it disappeared somehow *insert spooky alien abduction music*

03: When you order out, do you get a "usual" or do you try something new?

I like to order something new. When I order Chinese, I get an old favourite with it, in case I totally bomb on the "something new." When I'm getting something like Vietnamese, I get something new. I will however, never eat, octopus...though I like squid. Perhaps because it's fried in batter.

Celebrity Greatness and the internet

So, anyone you know have a listing on IMDB? Any corrections to their bio you wish you could make?

A guy I know has a profile on there and they fail to mention that he's an unemployed bum that mooches beer and smokes off his friends while bouncing from couch to couch. (Not that they'd actually put that in his bio. But still. It's annoying to read his bio and know that this is the same 'tard that sat next to me, grabbed my freshly-opened beer and chugged it, and proceeded to bitch about the cell phone reception in the house. Yeah, like you're really getting any important calls, dude. Your own Hollywood brother doesn't call you.)

That said, it's pretty fun to see him liked off an A-list actor's bio. I can point to that and say "That dude totally tried to grab my tits last weekend."

Hypothertical Question: single mother, two kids, three bedrooms, two doors.

Hypothetical question:
You are a single mother and you have two kids, a boy and a girl. You live in a three bedroom, relatively old, relatively small house.

The main bedroom is of course yours. Of the other two rooms, only one has a door. Which one of your kids would you put in the room with the door? Who deserves the privacy more? Why did you put that one in that room?

If it matters, the boy is younger than the girl and at this time, the boy is about 14 and the girl is 16.

Brain-impaired girl to remain a child forever...

Parents under fire for making their mentally-retarded daughter be a child for forever.

"Three years ago, when Ashley began to display early signs of puberty, her parents instructed doctors to remove her uterus, appendix and still-forming breasts, then treat her with high doses of estrogen to stunt her growth.

In other words, Ashley was sterilized and frozen in time, for ever to remain a child. She was only 6 years old. Afflicted with a severe brain impairment known as static encephalopathy, she cannot walk, talk, keep her head up in bed, or even swallow food. Her parents argued that "keeping her small" was the best way to improve the quality of her life, not to make life more convenient for them.

By remaining a child, they say, Ashley will have a better chance of avoiding everything from bed sores to pneumonia — and the removal of her uterus means that she will never have a menstrual cycle or risk developing uterine cancer."

Do you agree or disagree with their actions? Why?

So my boyfriend and I were thinking about getting the cheepest netflix plan. 1 DVD at a time, two DVDs a month for $6 or something.
But I was talking to somebody and they said that all the DVDs they got were scratched up and crappy. I don't really know anybody else that is in the program so I don't know if they just have horrible luck or if I should avoid joining.
Does anybody have experience with netflix? Would you recommend it? Are most, if not all, of their movies scratched up?

When you and your significant other go out to eat and are seated at a 4-person table, do you both sit on the same side or across from each other?

I'm specifically referring to situations where it's just the two of you having a casual meal, and not a date or some other significant event.

Edit: I should have specified a table like a booth, where there is only seating on 2 sides of the table.

Fruit, clothes, gender, and sex.

2. Have you ever envisioned yourself on TLC's "What Not to Wear"? What's your style? What would they see "wrong" with it?
I love the show, and would love for them to make me wear something other than the clothes I've had since 7th grade. (I'm 22.)

3. Are you male? Female? None of the above? All of the above? One way physically, and another mentally?

7:44 PM 1/3/07 · Unlike my usual movie related challenges, I don't mind if you decide to source info from the Internet Movie Database or Wikipedia. Feel free...although I would prefer you pick stuff you've actually seen. There's no way I can actually confirm that little fact though so we're gonna have to operate on faith.

How many movies can you name that had no more than 10 actors in it?
  • This counts both main characters, minor ones, & extras.

  • No listing porn films, that's too easy.

  • Big screen movies are preferrable but not necessary.

  • That's about it for any kinda rules.

    I just moved into a new apartment, and the two girls I share it with have lived here for the past 6 months. There are these tiny bugs flying around (not like, a huge mess of them, but maybe 10 or so?) and one of my roommates thinks they're from her plants, so she started spraying them with Raid. I think it might be from thier lack of taking out trash and doing dishes (but I havent mentioned this). They kind of remind me of fruit flies, and may be those.

    When spring arrives, we are going to adopt a puppy. The only problem is that I haven't decided on a breed (mixed or not, still need an idea of what we're after)...what kind of dog would be right for our situation:

    We live in an apartment (large) with a weight limit (60lbs, but I might be willing to go bigger for the right dog, the apartment isn't strict at all, I'd just rather stick to the lease), but live in the middle of a huge park (we spend lots of time outside)
    Small children
    No yippie dogs

    When I was growing up, we had dogs but none were trained well (if at all)...I want to be able to teach our dog good habits. Especially regarding potty training, obviously...I'm not one of those people who find pee on my carpet endearing. Can anyone point me towards some puppy training resources online?

    What about links to training resources for older dogs specifically. We might end up adopting an older dog, because I turn to goo in the humane society, lol.


    You have five months off of school and you want to find a full-time, relatively high-paying job for those months so you decide to go to an employment agency. Would you tell them that you only needed a job for five months?
    Assuming that you didn't, they offer you some fantastic jobs that are well over 40-50K/ yr but require at least a month's worth of training, would you take it or look for something that required not as much training? Would you even worry about the employer or would you just do the job to the best of your ability for the five months and then quit at the end of that time with no regrets or anything on your conscience?

    2.) when I start my itunes, it says it can't find a quicktime file, i tried re-installing, but it hasn't worked... what's up with that?

    3.) how cool would i be if i brought my old Nintendo 64 to college?

    4.) You loaned your cousin about five Nintendo 64 games a few years ago, you always nagged him to bring them back, he always "forgot". Now you hear he's selling them, what do you do?

    5.) I'm 19 years old and i still LOVE pokemon. I did a report on pokemon cards when I was 11 or 12 and I got laughed at and tormented by my fellow classmates. Does anyone else still love their childhood obsessions? Did you ever get picked on because of them?

    Bad Business

    About a month ago my mom paid $250 to a small, local roofing company to fix a leak in the roof of our sunroom. The work was "guaranteed." Said roof still leaks. Repeated phone calls to the business have gone unanswered and messaged are not returned. What should be the next step in this situation? One of my mother’s friends suggested small claims court, but we don’t know if that’s what should be done…not to mention how to start that process if it is what should be done.


    Burning questions

    1) In most scenarios, do the ends justify the means? Or is the ethical way of sorting it out more important than the results?

    2) Is truth always the best policy? Do you feel that truth should be offered in all situations, or are some lies preferable when the truth may be devastating?

    3) The Iraqi and Afghanistan wars have revealed some interesting things. Is Democracy the best thing for every country? The U.S. helped engineer free elections in both countries. Afghanistan appointed leaders the U.S. didn't agree with and in Iraq, we kind of tampered with the candidates so the leader elected would be less militant and more open to working with the U.S. Iraq didn't really have a free election. Is democracy just a buzzword or does it have meaning still?

    4) Can you have a crush on someone you've never laid eyes upon, someone whose picture you've never seen? Have you ever fallen for someone on the internet without/before images being swapped?

    So I got this cool game the other day called 'A Bit of Banter' (sadly, it's the Jr edition). My mate & I thought it would be a cool game to play when we're drunk at 3am with nothing left to talk about. So it's pretty much just a whole heap of cards with questions on them & the person that wins is who is voted 'Best Banterer'.

    But whatever, I thought I'd pick out some random questions.

    1. What's the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?
    2. Finish this sentence: I'd like to have...
    3. Is there something that your friend/friends own that you would love to have? What is it?
    4. Have you ever had a serious illness?
    5. What's the first thing you notice about a person?

    Do you know if there are any laws that prohibit the act of knowingly passing on an STD?
    I know there are laws in certain states about passing on HIV, but I wanted to know about STDs/STis.

    I live in NY.

    A possible meteorite crashed into a house about a mile from me on Tuesday night. My dad was telling me about it, and I was kind of disappointed it didn't land on our house. I think it would be kind of exciting to have a meteorite crash through my roof. He told me I was crazy, and that it wouldn't be even a bit exciting.

    Do you think it would be even remotely exciting to have a meteorite hit your house?

    i like lists

    1) Do you take a multi-vitamin? Which one? Has it noticeably helped you in any way?

    2) I know variations of this get asked a lot, but how did you decide on your LJ name? I really like mine but I'd prefer a name that is one word and no underscores. I'm thinking of changing it, but I don't know how to come up with anything good. Did it just come to you, or did you look through song lyrics, books, a dictionary...anything?

    3) My boyfriend put a load of wash into the dryer...and one of his pockets held a blue ballpoint pen. One of my pyjama tops is now forever ruined. Even worse, the inside of the washer and the door are horribly stained with blue ink. We have a front loading dryer...what should we use to clean it? I tried a Magic Eraser but it didn't work and I was worried about damaging the enamel. My mom suggested Fantastik but I haven't tried it yet. Any other ideas?

    Attention electricians!

    So, I just got my first Hydro (electric) bill since my tenant moved in (yes, THAT tenant - the one with the loud boyfriend)  Imagine my shock when the bill was DOUBLE what it was this time last year!!!  Especially because last year, there were 5 people living here, and now it's (supposed to be) only 3!!  And that's not because of rate increases, the average kWh/day is nearly double as well.

    So I went to talk to the tenant about it this morning- she wasn't home.  I could hear her stereo was on, though (and it is nearly every day).  She came home about 7:00 this evening, and I went to talk to her about it.  I mentioned that one reason might be the fact that she always leaves her stereo and lights on when she leaves the house.  Her response was that it takes more power to turn something on and off than it would to just leave it on.

    So, is she right?  I'm sure it would depend on how long it's left on, but can anyone provide me with how much energy it takes to power something up/down?  Just a general idea, or even a site where you can figure stuff like that out would be awesome.  



    Entertainment with a faith-based origin

    a) How many of you are going to watch the christian horror film Thr3e? Yep, not a typo. Christian horror film. I guess it's more aggressively christian than The Visitation

    b) On a related matter, how many of you are going to eventually play the 'Left Behind' video game? I read you can play the Antichrist, but you're not allowed to win if you do. The sources of the devil's spies in this game are rock musicians and secular activists, and apparently all the christian insurgents lurk in coffeehouses. I kid you not

    c) Do you like it when religion gets involved in our media and entertaining distractions?

    This has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard of...or not. But my mom is saying that when someone from another state puts cash into your checking account, you can't take money out until the next day or something. And when the person with the checking account is in another country, and someone from the states puts cash into their account...they don't receive it for 2 days. Is that even possible? Or does it differ from different banks?

    Washington Mutual is my bank and I'm in NYC...and whenever my friend from Chicago puts money in my account, I can take it out right away.

    Please...someone tell me how it works. My mom is driving me crazy.

    Facebook weird guy

    First Q: Edit: I deleted the weird dude. I just was curious on what you guys thought of him, he's a friend of my friend from college. I put up with it because I always thought he was drunk at the time so I just ignored it.

    Thank you guys for the serious answers.

    Insults weren't appreciated.. there's no need to be an asshat over something stupid like this.

    Second Q: When I click control+alt+delete, the window comes up, but I can't click on the tabs that are usually there at the top.. and I can't x out of the window.. what happened? how can i fix it..?

    Filling cracks in foam rubber

    I've had my desk chair for about four and a half years now. I like it a lot, but the armrests, which are made of foam rubber (mounted on metal), are cracking, and it's uncomfortable. Is there something I can use to fill in the cracks? Rubber cement, maybe?

    23rd Street.

    The 23rd street subway station has mosaic hats on the walls (Picture #1, #2, and #3.) One day I would like to go there specifically to take pictures to make it look like people are wearing the hats (me, the people I'm with, strangers on the other side of the platform.) Whenever I tell someone they tell me it's stupid and ridiculous. Personally I think it would be ridiculously cool. I'm there at least 2 or 3 times a month so it's not like I'd have to go out of my way at all.

    So, is this really a stupid and ridiculous idea?

    no, it sounds fun!
    It's not stupid, but it isn't something I'd want to do.
    It's not particularly stupid, but it is horribly unorginal.

    my shiny teeth & me

    I've got yellow teeth so I went and bought Arm & Hammer Whitening toothpaste.

    Any hazards or bad effects I need to know about?
    (like peeling away enamel layers,...)
    Any other ways to lessen that yellowness on my teeth?

    Anybody here drive a Ford Escape, a Mercury Mariner, or a Mazda Tribute?

    If you do -- tell me some stuff about it. What do you like and what would you like to see changed? What do you think about its cargo space/fuel mileage/other neat amenities? If you purchased the vehicle, why did you choose it over what you were looking at? What sold it for you? Do you have the safety canopy system? And have you had any problems with the vehicle?

    Another cousin question.

    1. What is my mother's cousin in relation to me?

    2. What is my cousin's child in relation to me?

    3. My mother has a cousin who has children and grandchildren. What are the children in relation to me? The grandchildren?

    I've always been curious; ilumiari's question inspired me to ask. (I've always just said "second cousins," "fourth cousins," even though I'm thinking I may have been wrong!

    I have a pair of leather & suede shoes. They are sopping, soaking, unbelievably wet, due to walking in them in the rain for what seemed like forever. I would like to get them dry before tomorrow, if possible. I have a dryer; however, it doesn't have a nifty shoe-drying setting or anything fancy. I have a hairdryer, but it's crap. Do I have any hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    I have a dilemma.
    I am going on a trip tomorrow evening that will involve a hotel and a pool and a hot tub. Unfortunately, the bathing suit I had last summer doesn't fit me (its too big). I don't have one that fits me, and I'm not about to buy one because I have been losing a lot of weight, and I most certainly will be much smaller by summer.
    I don't really have any friends who are my size, either.
    What do you suggest?

    1. Am I total spoiled brat if it upsets me that neither my parents nor my best friend got me gifts for the holidays? I got them all gifts, and creative, personal well-thought out gifts, and I got nothing. I know the holidays aren't about presents, but I still am kinda bummed. Baby or no baby? And for that matter... do I bring it up? Let it slide? Oh I don't know.

    2. Even if you have nothing to do, do you force yourself to stay up late when you know you can sleep in the next morning?

    Is it possible for persons of the opposite sex to have truly platonic relationships? Or will the attraction that brought them together in the first place (be it personality or looks) always result in some form of sexual tension (which may or may not ever be acted upon or even acknowledged)?
