I need help with what to wear on a first date.

Fur questions

1. Why is there so much fur hate?

2. Have you met a fur in real life?

3. Why is furriedom spreading?

EDIT: Anyone know of an image hosting site that allows remote loading?

2. I had a few friends who became furs after I knew them for a few years. It's very odd. They all change their names & I'm expected to call them by their fur names, but I know them by their human names. An odd thing to base your existance on really. Seems to mostly be a way for ugly (primarily gay male) geeks to have sex with each other.

1.Are you willing to donate organs after your death? If not, why?
2.If someone close to you died would you agree for their organs to be harvested?
3.Is there anything you wouldnt be willing to donate?

Personally i will donate anything i can. I won't be needing them anymore and if it can save someone elses life then that's wonderful. i don't understand people who refuse to donate.
We should all have the opt out list rather than opt in. Here in England you have to register to donate, if you had to register to not donate then the amount of organs free for transplantation would increase dramatically.. they have that system in Holland, not sure where else.
2. Even if the person I had to decide for didn't want to donate i think i'd go against their wishes... unless it would cause massive arguements betweeen other people. i know that sounds awful but as far as i'm concerned there's no reason not to...and they're dead.. what are they gonna do!
3. I'm somewhat iffy about this new face transplant... but i'll get over the weirdness factor, after all it's not like i'll be seeing this person walking around with my face :-/ Anyway it's just the skin really...

What is your favourite book? Hold on before you answer. What is your favourite copy of a book, based on memories and whatnot associated with that specific copy. What makes that book different from any other copy of it?

Maybe someone special gave it to you, maybe the author signed it, whatever.

1. Have you, or anyone you know, ever worked at a Jamba Juice? How was it?
I've got an interview for an Assistant Manager position at one, so I'm trying to get some opinions on how it is for a place to work.

2. When type of smoothies do you prefer, if at all?
I like pineapple, orange, and mango. Separately or mixed. I HATE bananas in my smoothies.

English Class.

Out of all the english classes I have taken(which isn't much, i'm only in 10th grade) I have seen this:

Why in nearly every sentence I have read that has the word "earth" in it, it is never captilized? It is a noun, isn't it? A place. A very important place infact. So why is "earth" never capitilized?

Either there is an explanation that I have missed or the schools I've been to are incompetent in their work.


so heres my situation:
i have a best friend named brian. we seriously talk allll the time. we've only known each other 4 or 5 months yet we talk every day all day and never run out of things to talk about. After work, he always walks me to my car and constantly tickles me or pokes me.. touch me in general. He even has been trying to get in good with my parents. he calls me his jewbaby and his girl... just his. haha. he made me the most thoughtful christmas present ever. i had never had a xmas tree so he got his mom to sew me a tree pillow made of hannukah fabric. and for my birthday he's buying me a sidekick which is like 400$ "/. i used to like him but he swears he doesn't like me. even though everyone thinks we're dating and/or sleeping together. Even my mom!
so my question is: Do you think he likes me?

4. Do you ever break out in hives? What causes them?
5. What would you do if you lost almost everything? You broke up with/divorced your SO, got laid off/fired, had no friends in the area, don't get along with family, couldn't afford rent on your own.... where would you go? What would you do? Would you move someplace completely different and start over?

For those who have/do work(ed) in any type of restaraunt...

It seems like everytime I ask one of my freinds where they work they say "oh _ _ _ _...Don't EVER eat there!"

I've heard tons of restaraunt cook horror stories...semen in the fryer...not washing hands after using the bathroom...etc.

If you've ever worked in a restaraunt, what are some things like this that you've witnessed/done first hand?

Or, if you've ever eaten somewhere and there is something TOTALY wrong about your order. (and no I don't mean too much salt, I mean like a chicken leg on your burger) what exactly happened?

I love a good scary story.


When it comes to condoms, my boyfriend far prefers Sheik over anything else. He claims to like the fit and the way the lubricant holds out, as opposed to other condoms.

Problem is, I've searched everywhere and no one sells them. I looked online, and I can find mention of Sheik condoms, but can't find any place to actually PURCHASE them.

Can someone help me out, or give me a reason WHY they're so hard to find??

3.) If you were going to be stranded on a desert island for the rest of your life, what are three things or people you would bring with you (you've already been given shelter and a life time supply of food and fresh water)? You also can't bring anything that would get you off the island.

5.) Do you identify as a feminist?

6.) Recently, there's been a lot of talk about the fact that Oprah used 40 million dollars of her own money to build The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy For Girls of South Africa in...Well, duh, South Africa. The school grounds span 22 acres and include a beauty salon and yoga studio. Oprah noted to Newsweek that: "I became so frustrated with visiting inner-city schools that I just stopped going. The sense that you need to learn just isn't there. If you ask the kids what they want or need, they will say an iPod or some sneakers. In South Africa, they don't ask for money or toys. They ask for uniforms so they can go to school."

What are your feelings about this?

7.) Striped knee socks. Are they stupid or fun?

Sirius System

My husband and I bought a Sirius system for our Civic last year. We just got the simple cheapest reciever and it works great. So we bought a second one for our Sportage. We're using this one since they no longer make the one we originally ordered for the Civic. But we can't get it to work correctly. The Civic one works fine in the Kia, so I know everything's hooked up correctly and what not.

We discovered by experimentation that if we plugged in the cassette adaptor for my iPod into the Kia's Sirius system, it works perfectly. But that's the only way. We tried changing the stations, using the extender piece, putting the reciever right up to our radio... nothing but static.

Anyway, I really do not want to call Sirius customer service again, because it's just absolutely horrible. The worst customer service I've ever experienced. And I can't seem to find the answer on their FAQ page, though I did send a request form with dubious predictions (from past experience.) So I was hoping some of you guys might have some suggestions.


P.S.-- Has anyone else had similar troubles with Sirius and their customer service? XM people, how is their customer service? Should I consider switching?

Would a vet just put an animal down if you couldn't afford the medical bill and asked them to do it?

edited to add: This is why I am asking. I just took my cat up to the vet for an abcess.  It cost me 200.00 to have him treated and the abcess cleaned. I did not choose to put my cat down. But another woman was there and she had a cat with a similar injury and she was asking about options. I had paid and left at that point, so I didn't hear what they told her. It has always been something that I was curious about.

Also, I know a lot of stories about when they were living in the Preve as kids (a home for children w/ TB or high risk).

Sony Commercial Actor

I am trying to find the name of the actor who portrayed an Italian(?) exchange student in a commercial that aired sometime between 2002 and 2004. I'm 90% sure that it was a Sony Wega commercial, and it may have aired during a Super Bowl. In the commercial, a teenage girl brings the exchange student home to meet her dad, who shows him his HDTV(?) setup. The exchange student exclaims "Fantastico!" and hugs the dad.

Does anyone know the actor's name -- or how can I find out who he is? TIA!

Video Tombstone -- BBC Movie/TV Drama

I visited Brussels in late April/early May of last year. While watching TV in the hotel one night, I caught a single scene from an English-language movie or TV show. Two women were in a cemetery -- one older, one younger. The older woman showed the younger one a particular gravesite. A motion-activated sensor near the gravesite caused video to play on the tombstone -- a young woman singing and playing the piano (I think). The younger woman was entranced, and she felt sorry that the buried woman had died so young. The older woman was much less sympathetic. She wanted the younger woman to sign a petition to get the buried woman "removed" because of the "noise."

Help? I'm sure this is a very contemporary production, probably made by the BBC. TIA!

These are some topics I was talking about with some friends recently. I was wondering what you guys thought.

1. You meet the person of your dreams, they treat you right, they love you unconditionally, etc, etc, etc... The only thing you dislike about them is that they are a little overweight, let's say 30-50lbs. They carry it well though and have a nice face and they are an attractive person to you. The weight, however, bothers you and it's something that you would like to see gone/changed. You still date them anyway.
Would you consider this settling for someone?

2. What do you think of an SO who doesn't allow you to hang out one on one with someone of the same sex they are?

CCR's 'Centerfield' and the 'Chariots of Fire' theme song in all it's corny glory does it for me too. :P

Greed... muahaha

Let's say someone was offering you $1 million. The catch? You would die three years earlier than you originally would. You can also add $1 million for every additional three years you give up. But, here's the thing: you don't know when you're going to die. And no matter what, you can't give back some money to add additional years to your life.

Would you take the money? And if so, how much would you take (and how many years of life would you sacrifice)? ETA: Why or why not?

(example: you accept $3 million, and give up 9 years of life. Instead of dying at 87, you die at 78. Of course, you don't know when you're gonna die...)

I HATE THAT HE LEAVES OUT THE SECOND VEEEEEEERSE. The original was by a band called Secret Garden and it is SO MUCH BETTER than the Josh Groban version.

The Hall of Alco

Do you think alcohol really makes people do stupid things or do you think it's psychosomatic and gives them an excuse to act stupid?

How does alcohol affect you?

I personally think it lowers your inhibitions, but not to the extent to cause people to do certain things. I've seen people act drunk from non-alcoholic drinks that they thought were alcoholic, which lends credence to the psychosomatic notion.

Alcohol just sorta relaxes me and makes me a little sleepy.

Alternately, I was told that there's a product on the market to wash "DRY CLEAN ONLY" clothes at home. It's a packet that you throw into the dryer along with the garment. I had never heard of it before. Has anyone here used it or heard anything about it?

Should I take the coat to the dry cleaners, or try the dry-clean-at-home stuff?

I was at Borders the other day, and I listened to an amazing cd. Unfortunetly, I cannot remember the artist or record title! I thought her last name was Gaines, but I'm wrong. I think. I know the title of the cd had the word "knife" in it, and song number 1 or 2 was called "Dr."-something. The genre was "pop," but it was more indie-ish. Piano, soft vocals. Really nice sounding. Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? Oh, and this was a newer album.

the other day i was at my sisters and was being nosy and going through her pictures in her my documents folder.

anyway, she has nude photos of herself. And I can't get her hairy vag out of my head. It's disturbing.
Has anyone else ever seen their silbing nude? It's just..so..wrong.

Can you reply to posts with voiceposts?

I can't remember the name of a song. Can anyone tell me what it is by the description of the music video? Basically it's a guy riding his bike through a city. The song came out 5 or more yrs ago.

1. For satellite radio users, what brand do you have?
1a. What are your favorite channels & programs to listen to?
1b. Why did you get that particular brand?
1c. Would you get rid of satellite radio or switch to the other brand for any reason?

2. What are some good songs by Head Automatica or the Audition? I'm going to see the Jack's Mannequin concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom and those are the opening bands, I'd like to have some idea of them before I see them.

3. Same as above for Finger Eleven and Blackstone Cherry. They're supporting Hinder next month. The only song I know by Finger Eleven is "One Thing" which I do like. Is all there music like that? What are some other good songs by them or by Blackstone Cherry?

4. What things are you looking forward to in the next few months?
I'm looking forward to my internship in the city, Hinder & Jack's Mannequin concerts, seeing Chicago on Broadway (hopefully), my one-year-anniversary/Valentine's Day with my boyfriend, and my honors thesis presentation. The Hinder concert, anniversary/Valentine's Day, and honors thesis presentation are February 13, 14, &15th so that should be an interesting week.

edit5. What books have you read that you highly recommend? I'm going to need entertainment on my train rides into the city. I'll read almost anything except for thrillers, I like a good mystery but James Patterson & the like freak me out.

Who is this? - SOLVED!

My boyfriend and I were at a thriftstore today, and he bought this mask... and now we have no idea who it is. He had thought it might be a president or something, but we've looked online for an hour and can't figure it out. The only information on the mask is that it is a Cesar mask made in 1998. Any help would be much appreciated!

-edit- It is indeed a Bill Gates mask, minus the glasses. Thanks to everyone who helped!

I'm in a strange thinking kinda mood tonight. Kinda like every other night.

Here's some highly blasphemous questions for you guys! :) Said in humour, but not everyone has a deranged sense of humour such as myself.

For my sake, I'm talking about the plain old New/Old Testament sorta bible. If you wanna take this like the Quran, or Satanic Bible, or whatever the hell... and can make heads or tails of things that way, go crazy!

1- If Jesus was say, smooshed in an Iron Maiden, or had his head cut off by a Guillotine, do you think either of the above would be turned into a fashion statement as the cross has been? Why (not)? ((Saying this fully aware that these are more recent ways of execution. If you can think of anything that was used 2000 years ago, and would make a lovely fashion statement that could also be a religious statement, feel free!))

2- Are you already fearing the other questions I'm going to ask?

3- Lots of people use names from the bible, but they're generally boring ones. Like John and Mary and junk. What outrageous biblical name(s) do you think should make a comeback and be like the next Aiden/Ayden/Aydyn, etc etc etc?

4- Rephrased to make more sense! We all know that the bible has been translated a billion times into many languages, thus losing a lot of whatever was probably actually REAL about it. If someone came along from the time it was written, and gave you a special dictionary to translate it from ANY current edition, telling you that the TRUE truth would fix the world, would you do it, even if you weren't religious?

5- Right here and now, if you could make up any deity/saint/whatever to suit your needs, what would they be called and what would they be capable of?

My answers...! Collapse )

This evening I heard a really vulgar song. It was by Eminem (I think - he has a pretty recognizable voice) and some deep-voiced rapper. I don't remember any specific lines but I know it was something like "I want a girl who will do whatever the f--- I say" and something about having sex in a Hummer and 'taking it from behind'.

Does anyone know what song I'm talking about? It was really horrible, misogynistic song but I wanted to look up and gawk at the lyrics.
