What's the weirdest thing you've ever got stuck in between the keys on your keyboard?

2) Is there a certain number of times you usually sneeze?
3) As far as I've learned, fog comes from humidity that results from cold air meeting warm air. If this is by any chance true, why does warm defrost on a windshield work when the air outside is cold? Wouldn't that just make the windshield foggier?
4) If you could have ANY one person (and only one) of the sex you're attracted to, who would it be?
5) If you could have a free vacation anywhere right now, where would you go?
6) Do you like black licorice?
I had a blankie and sucked my thumb. My blankie ended up getting "lost" when I was little, and because I was so upset I stopped sucking my thumb.
But when is it OK to tell them? Do you do it right away, or do you wait and hope the problem fixes itself?
So if you chose to bring it up to them... what is your approach?
Any stories to share of similar situations?
2. In the UK: From which University?
3. Did having a degree/not having one help/hinder you with regards job applications?
4. In what area do you work?
EDIT: What do you think is the most famous song ever played?
Have you found any that give you a decent answer?
I have found that the famous Flying Spaghetti Monster is amazingly reliable when it comes to help finding lost items. I think I've only been let down once in the past year, and I've usually had sudden inspiration to look in a place I hadn't thought of, and found the item, within about fifteen minutes of sincere but not lengthy supplication.
So I'm sorted on the lost items, but I still need a deity to sort the rest of my life out.
Any suggestions? (I tried Jesus years ago, and found him wanting.)
2. When going up the stairs, do you take them one step at a time or two? When I'm at home, I take two, but anywhere else I take one.
3. What are you craving right now? I myself have been craving gingersnaps for forever. And now I have some. :3
4. Do mice/rats really eat cheese? Or have cartoons lied to us for our entire lives? What about bears and honey? Goats and anything?
5. How many entries do you generally have to go back on your FList to catch up with everything? I usually have to go back somewhere between 150-200 posts.
ETA: What about Wellbutrin?
2. Is this bunny cute?
Akon - Mr. Lonely

Kanye West - Through The Wire
Cam'Ron - Oh Boy

I'm trying to find more songs that use that kind of style in Hip Hop songs. Wikipedia has it in German...but the translations aren't literal. If anyone knows what I'm talking about. Please help a sista out. Thanks in advance.
You're trapped on a desert island. Who are you trapped with?
What are they wearing?
Name one item/s that washed up on shore with you two
You're allowed one piece of survival/camping gear/creature comfort
Taking into account your partner and the few items you have, what do you do with it all?
That said, would you say your similarities to people in general outweigh the differences you have with others?
If you had to say classify yourself as either different or similar to other people, which would it be? What is your reasoning behind the one you chose?
I am sick of having to discretely tuck them back in.
P.S. Does my use of "boobs" offend you? I can't take myself seriously enough to call them "breasts", for some reason.
Has anything "bad" ever happened to your eyes as a result of sleeping in your contacts?
2. I'm bi-polar, so I take medication. It seems to be making my memory worse. I just wondered if it was slowly eating away at my brain, or if it was just inhibiting it from working properly?
3. I think because of my new medication (Zoloft), my feet have been unreasonably cold. I wondered if anyone had any similar experiences, or if they knew how I could warm them up at all? Socks do not work. Neither does putting them under a blanket. I've gone to the doctors, and they did a blood test, and I'm as healthy as can be.
Sometimes I am so lost in the conversations I have.
Have you seen Brokeback Mountain? What did you think?
How often do you say it? How often is too much?
If neither of you said it for an entire day but were getting along fine, would you let it worry you?
How important is that phrase to you?
Edit: also, if someone tells you they love you, do you feel obligated to say it back? If you told someone you loved them, would you expect them to reciprocate every time (under normal circumstances)?
Brown Sugar or Honey? Honey and cream
Grapefruit or Orange? Grapefruit for eating; Orange for drinking
Links or Patties? link to me, baby
Do you like breakfast in bed with the implied laziness and intimacy, or does it become awkward after a little bit, what with wiping your mouth on the sheets and spilling juice because you keep slipping down? I love it, but only if he brings it to me and then goes away, leaving me to read the paper and eat in private.
Am I lucky as hell that I'll be registering on the second day of classes and I still managed to get a decent schedule?
Have you ever totally changed your expected major? I went from art to criminal justice with an eye towards law school, because I heard the art department here is known for the kind of bullshit I got hit with last semester.

Last night it was 1009 - what's the range it can go between, and what number represents high and low?
I remember my grandfather used to have a barometer that he checked every night, but I don't recall all the information the arrows pointed to. Does anyone know the history for barometric pressure reading? and whether it was one of the first aids in meteorology?
Or, / B /...
I don't get it!
A couple of other factors:
1. He said that I didn't really seem like I wanted a boyfriend.
2. He said something about how he wouldn't want to hurt me but I can't remember what the context was.
3. I asked him a few weeks ago how does he know when it's going somewhere and he replied "It doesn't stop."
My questions are:
1. Why would he ask that? From your perspective, what does it sound like he's really trying to find out?
2. Where does anything with anyone go?
2a. How do you know when it's going "somewhere"?
2b. Is somewhere a relationship?
3. We've only been dating a month, don't you think that asking that question is slightly premature?
4. How do long-term relationships work? We don't live too far from each other and get along extremely well but I'm 22 and he works a lot. Plus, I have a lot of my other things going on (school, career, family, friends). Are we supposed to see each other every day or other day or? I'm not good at relationships. I get restless after a few months and feel like I'm being held back but I don't want to stop seeing him because he needs it to either end or go somewhere.
I haven't spoken to him since Saturday morning - the morning after we had that chat - and I'm not sure I want to. I'm kind of avoiding him because when I left his house, I felt a very "missing" kind of feeling. I felt confused and frustrated. I felt like he took something that was "high hopes but expectation free", fun & casual and turned it into something awkward.
Sigh... dating is awful.
2) do you feel sick after taking vitamins?
(yes, always. even if i eat beforehand. it makes me very reluctant to take them.)
Is it better to weigh yourself once a week, or every morning? I think once a week, my friend said that once a day is better because you can see what causes your weight to fluctuate.
What was the last thing you purchased?
Mini-golf or bowling?
Okay, I'm gonna go there:
Abortion: murder of an innocent life, or the extermination of a parasite/bunch of cells?
Knowing this, would you buy the dress and wear it? Why or why not?
EDIT: The note was not left on the dress. The store manager tore it up and threw it out. I just heard about this story through a friend.
So, long time no question! I'm going to Mexico in February. Cunningly, I speak all of three sentences' worth of Spanish, and all my phrasebook is telling me is how to complain about my room. What're some phrases that are actually going to come in handy?
ETA: Thanks for all the input. I should add that, although I can only speak three sentences, I can read a lot more. So I think my trousers will be safe.
1) You're fairly established in an IT management career. In a decent track, a good company, no real complaints. You have a BS degree.
2) You need to earn, at a minimum, something around $80,000/year to avoid significant financial hardship (i.e. having to sell your house and buy a cheaper one)
3) You've decided that despite there being no specific problems with your career, you're totally bored and dissatisfied with it and want to do something radically different.
4) You live in a large city with a diverse economy.
What are some options?

I'm talking about a hardtail Squier Bullet, which is basically a non-tremolo Fender Strat for 90 bucks. My amplifier is a Marshall MG100DFX combo amplifier. The question: Should I set my pickups high or low in relation to the strings and the body?
I'm trying to go for the John Frusciante sound from the album Californication (read: clean, bright, pickups are overdriven easily). Any help is appreciated.

The master bedroom in my apartment has windos on three walls, meaning it is quite susceptible to the changes in temperature from the outside weather. The windows are covered completely with medium weight curtains and horizontal blinds, yet it still the cold winter air is invading the room (when the rest of the house is a comfortable 65 degrees, it is about twenty degrees cooler than that in the bedroom.) Using the heater makes the rest of the house too warm, and I feel silly closing all the vents to the house for just the one room..
Any suggestions as to what I can do to warm up the bedroom?

Same question for Disturbed fans- I've only heard Shout 2000 and it's currently my favourite song, everything about the song is amazing. So what's your favourite Disturbed song, and is Shout 2000 like the rest of their music?

I love that song so much, and I only decided to read the lyrics last night (they rap too fast for me to understand) and omg I'm sure it is the stupidest song I have ever heard, ever.

Makes me feel jealous that my boyfriend is out with *my* friends, lol.
I just got my first two Betta fish! The only problem is..........I seem to kill fish just by existing. And this is mostly because I love fish, I buy them, I don't know how to take care of them, and then they die.
So, you people with Betta experience, what do you think the best food is? How often do you change the water in your tank? What temperature do you keep the tank at (if you keep it a certain temp)?
The reason I'm asking is because there are so many companies throwing propaganda at me, and I'd like a response from the people who have actually had experience with these fish.

I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and moved to the US when I was almost 9. I went back this December for my grandmother's 70th birthday (I'm 16 now). We stayed in a little town in the south, near the Azov sea, not where I grew up, so I did not have many memories of it, but the one thing I noticed was that everything seemed a lot smaller than it did when I spent my summers there. Also, everything was a dreary sort of gray. What was especially depressing was how the main street, Karl MArx Boulevard was this nice, commercial sort of place, but if you walked a block or so away from it, all the people lived in these horrid, run down shacks. The whole experience was pretty sad.
The people there were a lot different, too. Walking down the street, if I met anyone's eyes there was always a nervous/scared, suspicious, unfriendly look in them, and it made everyone's face look really hard and closed. Everyone basically looked like they were trying to get from point A to point B in the shortest amount of time possible. When I was walking around with some friends I made there, they even pointed out that the first thing they noticed about me was that I had a very open face, not something they usually saw in the people of that town.

There a term in literature which means that the weather is enforcing/parallelling moods of the characters.
Like rain when someone is sad, or a Tempest when everyone's angry in Wuthering Heights.
Theres a word for it, and I think theres a dertivitive of the word "empathy" or "sympathy" in there.
Please help. I don't know how to go about looking for it, and its driving us nuts.
I felt really bad about it and actually started crying.
Friend's dad made it worse by saying it was "irreplacable."
However, they told me "not to worry about it" and it was "fine."
Just now, over a week later, my friend hit me up on the internet for money.
It is apparently custom-made and probably worth a few thousand dollars.
Is this rude? Should I even consider paying for the thing?
Should I be offended or upset, or am I totally off-base?
Would your opinion change if you knew his dad was very wealthy, and I am a college student with no income to speak of?

1. What are the chances of one of you knowing the location to this comic?

2. Whats your favourite dance scene of all time? For me, it's a toss up between the end of lord of the dance (The tap dancing one), where everyone get's in line, and the Rue-Ahiru swan lake fight dance on the lake in Princess Tutu. Bonus points for youtube link.
3. Who here is lacking talent in everything they try?

I was thinking about this past Christmas season and how the shopping insanity around here always begins on "Black Friday" - the day after Thanksgiving.
I don't bother with that; 30 Nov. is the Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, and the following Sunday begins the penitential and reflective season of Advent, which I observed.
Since other countries don't have Thanksgiving to "start" the "Christmas shopping season" are the holidays very different where you live? Less hustle and bustle and pressure to shop and wrap gifts and fight other people for whatever the prize gift of the year is, etc?
Seems to me we Americans put ourselves through a lot of avoidable stress every year...
Something like All I ever say is goodbye.
