1. What's a food that you like at the "wrong" temperature? Something that's usually enjoyed cold and you like it hot, or vice versa.
2. What's something that's become a habit or routine of yours for absolutely no good reason? Will you do it differently sometime soon just because I think we should all get out of some ruts?
1. Ummm I like to eat frozen peas and corn. But not like a lot of them, I just pick a few out of the pot before they get cooked. I can't think of any others.
2. Over xmas break I got into a routine of watching TV since I wasn't going anywhere. I would get up at around 10 or whenever and watch music videos until 11. Then I would watch an hour of Scrubs, and then an hour of Full House. And then at 1 I would watch either Lookalike or whatever crappy MTV shows were on because as stupid as they are I can't stop watching Next and Parental Controls and stuff like that. And I'd eat lunch as I was watching that and then get in the shower at 2. So now that I've gone back to classes, I don't have any classes on Wednesdays so I keep doing the same thing. So I'm telling myself that one week I'll just do something completely different but I don't know if I will or not.
Is there a physiological reason that I get so hungry around this time (midnight) every night?
Ive eaten fine throughout the day, and no matter what I eat at night, I still feel hungy.
So some spy ware is attacking my computer and just deleted my desktop picture. I've always used Ad-Aware to remove spy ware but does anyone have suggestions for something that works better? What do you use?(needs to be free)
Yes, before anyone says anything I am aware of a little thing called google but it's more fun to ask your opinion on what is good to use!
1)Does anyone here think it is rude to stand outside in the hallway at 1:30 in the morning and talk on your cellphone right in the main hallway in a dormitory? I've noticed a handfull of people in my dorm seem to like to do that for whatever reason and I feel it is rather rude.
2)Who here is getting tired of people's lack of manners with cellphones in general(I.E. yakking on a cellphone while a sales clerk tries to help them out, etc...), and if you ARE one of those unfortuante clerks who gets one of those morons, how do you handle it?
1)Obviously yes, I find it quite rude. Otherwise I wouldn't be asking if anyone agrees with my sentiments. :)
2)I just pretend the phone isn't there and I talk to the person like I normally would if they weren't on the phone. A lot of times they end up telling the person "Oh *person*, I'm going to have to call you back".
Do you think you could ever just choose to be single the rest of your life?
How does one go about finding a rebound relationship?
I just got out of a 2.5 year relationship and I have a lack of ways to meet men. I'm not in school, I work with females, and the last of my friends got engaged this week (I literally do not know one single male).
My town has plenty of redneck taverns but no clean, well-lit coffee shops. We don't have clubs. I wouldn't know how to find a guy randomly in public, anyway.
I'm not interested in internet dating. I like to meet the person before I decide whether I should date them or not.
What should I do?
PS. I'm moving away from this horrible town in about six months. I want more immediate results than that, though.
Is it possible to drink too much water? I've been trying to drink more water this past week, and today, I ended up drinking 100oz of water....my problem is even after drinking all that water I still feel thirsty. Is it possible I drank too much?

What is the laziest thing you have ever done?
(For me, it's filling up two glasses of water so I don't have to get up from what I'm doing when the first glass empties)
when did the us policy of not negotiating with terrorists start?
I'm sitting here with a pair of underwear on my head to keep my hair out of my eyes while i do my makeup. I can't find a headband anywhere and I don't want to tie it back and get kinks as I just spent a crapload of time straightening it. Mind you, it's quite effective.
What’s the weirdest thing you have ever used to substitute for something else?
Why is it ok for black people/hispanic people to take pride in their race, but not white people?
Why is it ok to have Gay Pride parades, but straight people can't be proud of their sexuality and have parades?
What do you do to get over someone?
Specifically someone you're really close to and can't stop talking to/seeing. I'm big on avoiding people but in this case it's not possible.
I've always wondered... what would happen if a satanist tried to get hired at a christian bookstore, you know? If they didn't hire him, could he sue?

What can I do to take my mind off of not being around my boyfriend?
Yeah, silly question; but, I've spent the night at his place for the last 2 months and I think he's getting sick of me and I'm getting bored of him.
I'm going to try staying away for a week.
What are your experiences with spending too much time with someone?
Were you able to fix it?
Did spending time apart help?
Do you think M.A.C products are worth the money? Why or why not?
I've got a recipe that required Velveeta cheese. I know the stuff's probably not that great for you, so I'm kind of wondering if there's an organic/healthier version that would cook just as well? My hopes are low, but you never know.
As a bonus related question for everyone, what's a food/drink that most people like but you cannot stand?
Has anyone ever done one of those jobs that was "Stuff envelopes for $5,000" or "Put together CD cases for $x a unit?"

Division is something i am freaking terrible at. I've tried googling, but nothing really comes up. edit- nevermind, i'm screwed.
Does anyone know where i can find a chart of division sums (kind of like the times tables ones..but..for..division- is there even one?!)
any help is appreciated for this stupid mofo.

How does one go about finding a respectable plastic surgeon?
Is there some kind of website where people can write down their thoughts on the doctors?
Should I just call around different ones and see what they say?
If you've had a surgery, how did you find your plastic surgeon?
My ob/gyn's recommended a guy, but when I made the appointment for a consultation, they said it was 50$ cash, and that just rubbed me the wrong way. It made it seem like they wouldn't be willing to work with my insurance. I ended up cancelling the appointment.
What does it mean to put your boy on "rock rock", as Fergie says?
My roommate's friend is visiting from Denmark and has somehow come down with what appears to be the most horrible thing ever. First it started off as just pain in her mouth, but then it escalated to being overall sick as hell. At first she was just taking otc painkillers, but now she's really REALLY sick. She's been to the hospital and they told her it was some kind of virus. (I just asked her what it was, but she can't remember, plus she's really sick and out of it)
Does this sound like anything you've heard of? I wish she could remember what it was. See the reason I'm asking is because today she started bleeding from her gums, tongue and nose in addition to being a wreck already. She can't really eat much because of the state of her mouth either. I know she wants to but it hurts too much.
I'm trying to figure out what it is she has, to look it up, to see if there's something we should be doing for her that we missed. The hospital prescribed her a Lidocaine oral rinse, but it doesn't seem to be doing very much of anything. She's just getting sicker and sicker. I want to help her so bad. With this new bleeding you think we should take her back to the hospital? They said she needs to wait it out, but this is really scary.
Say that you have two chat windows open. In one you are talking to a very good (real life) friend who recently announced that he has gotten engaged. In the other, you are talking to a mutual friend whom you have never actually met in person. The mutual friend starts to make fun of the engagement and the fiancée involved. She comments negatively on the fiancée's looks and asks to make a bet on how long the marriage will last. All the while, she's congratulating him and feigning excitement.
In your opinion, is this behavior duplicitous enough to warrant telling the guy? Would you tell him? Would you say anything to her at all?
Is anyone else here abnormally excited for the premiere of Prison Break tonight?

I work at a public library in teen services. Tomorrow I have a program on making playlists and finding new music. It's pretty much all put together except for one hting - I need an activity or icebreaker to start things off. I was thinking of having them share their favorite songs and decide how they would order the songs to make a good mix CD, but I just don't think it will be very successful if not everyone know the songs! Does anyone know of any icebreaker games or activites (or worksheets I could make) that teens would be interested in?
Is there anything you would like to hear about at a program like this?
I had a terrible experience my last program (which was my first) so I am desperate for any help on this.

1. What do you do to keep awake during the day, especially if you're tired?
2. Are energy drinks effective? Are they even good? What are the most effective ones, if you even recommend them?
(Bawls, for some reason, doesn't work on me. Maybe it's because I was constantly wired on them in HS.)
3. What's the longest day you've had where you were constantly doing something?
(The rest of my schedule is 9am - 9:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday, and the same as today -- 7am - 9:30pm -- every Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Every week. Until I graduate @ the end of April.)

I'm not sure I'm going to get along with 2/3 of my suitemates at school... we've only been in our room for about for a week, but things are just awkward. One of them acts like she doesn't even want to talk to me when all I say is hi in the morning, and we're already at the point where one of us enters the suite and no one says anything to one another.
have you had a weird/distant/cold/etc relationships with roomates?

Does anyone know what happened to Judge Maybellene from Divorce Court?
Are you sick of Judge Judy, Judge Alex, Judge Christina etc?
Would you ever appear on such a show?
Please dont think any less of me for asking this. But what do you guys think about being friends with "benefits" with a person? A friend of mine told me that she wanted to do this with me. And I wanted some opinions on the moral implications of doing something like this. Is it right? Is it wrong? Would it end well? I am just curious on what people would say about the whole thing.

What do you think your parents want for you for your life (in the big picture)? Is it what you want for yourself?
Ok, so I put a check for a lot of money in the bank on Thursday. It's Monday, and I checked my bank account balance at the ATM, and it says 366 and change. Which is less than what I put in by a huge margin. I can't log into my account because I'm not at home with my passwords, but I'm out of cash and want to get some lunch on campus. Would it be ok to take 20$ out of the account then figure out why there is such a small amount later? The bank is HSBC if that helps.
ETA: Answered, thanks!

2. How many accidents you been in, if more than one?
4. I was in my first accident two months ago, and I still haven't listened to the CD that was playing when it happened while driving. I feel apprehensive about it, as silly as that may be. Any advice for getting over it? (I can listen to the CD at my computer or elsewhere, I guess, but it still reminds me of the accident. What I want to be able to do again is listen to it in the car....)

1. Does your skin ever feel extra sensitive when you're sick? I think I'm catching a cold/getting a sinus infection, and the skin on my lower back has been really senistive. I can actually feel my clothes rubbing on it in a painful way (this is over a few days, no matter what clothes I wear).
2. I'm going to the dentist on Wednesday because I think one of my wisdom teeth is just now coming in (I have a lump on my gum that isn't an abcess, and a tooth appears to be the only good explanation). Do dentists always take out wisdom teeth when they start to come in? If not, doesn't it hurt a lot to have a tooth come in? Babies certainly don't seem to enjoy it.

Why does my myspace song start working and then just die?
It's seriously starting to piss me off, lol.
The last myspace question got me thinking.
For those of you who hate it and think everyone who has one is lame, why all the hate? What is it about myspace that has you so opposed?

What is your opinion of the comic Hothead Paisan? Is it sexist? Is Hothead a good role model for girls?
Backstory: I eat almost nothing but fast food. If I'm having a tight week financially, I get downgraded to Ramen. I have an actual meal maybe once a week at a friends. I drink several sodas a day. I don't really gain weight, since I don't eat excessive amounts, but I'm obviously still not healthy. I don't really give a shit about cholesterol or blood pressure or whatever bullshit.
But I do have a problem: I can not stay awake. I'm constantly tired, and if I sit in one place for long (like in any of my classes), I fall asleep. I slept through Psychology last semester, and now I have Chem in the same time slot. I want to stay awake for this, since it should be slightly more difficult. I've tried going to sleep early, but no luck.
I think it's because of my lack of nutrition. I get very little vitamins/nutrients/other bullshit I need from my current diet. Since I can't really afford to eat healthy (nor would I care to, that shit is nasty), I'm looking for a decent multivitamin, or combination of vitamins, that I can use to provide my body with the daily value necessary to function normally.
Edit: I can't easily make the change to start cooking meals myself, since I live out of my car and have no means to. D:
Anyone have any suggestions?
why do decent looking guys pay for sex from dirty, smelly, homeless prostitutes? i mean, the smell coming off her has GOT to be unreal. i've never seen a woman pick up a dirty, smelly, homeless guy. do women have better taste or standards or something? if any of you have evidence of the latter, please share.
have any of you paid for sex? why?
So, I get distracted crazy easy. It's taken me three hours to do thirty ridiculously easy math problems because I got distracted like every problem with something online, or a text, or just anything. I have ADHD, but my doctor took me off meds for it in seventh grade, said that I needed to learn to focus without the meds. I'm better than I was pre-medication, but I'm getting noticeably worse (everyone around me's noticed it), and I'm like afraid of slipping back to how I was before.
So, firstly: Do you guys have any recommendations for ways to help focus?
And secondly: Do I mention my fear of relapse to my doctor and see what happens? I doubt he'd put me back on meds, but... Do I ask to be put back on them, or just try and wait and see?
Purely hypothetical situation:

So, it's Australia Day this Friday.
What are all my fellow Aussies doing for the day? Apart from getting pissed & having a barby, of course.
I heard today about someone who had a psychological disorder which was refered to as "Saint George's Syndrome" by the person telling me of it (not the same person who had the disorder). They weren't sure if that was the actual name though. It's basicly the opposite of a pathological lying disorder: a truth-telling disorder. The person always tells the truth and doesn't ever hold back or keep their opinions to themselves. (I'm not sure were exactly that crosses the line from "personality quirk" to "psychological disorder" but I'm no psych major...)
An internet and Wikipedia search turned up nothing under that name though. I am curious to read a bit about the condition and to find out what it's actual name is. Does it sound familiar to anyone (surely we have a few psych majors on here)?
Help is much appreciated as always.
So, I'm thinking of starting to use del.icio.us. For a while I didn't really see the point of using that rather that just having favorites in Firefox or whatever, but it's starting to seem like a good idea.
So, what do you guys think of it? Do you use it / like it?
So far the advantages I'm seeing are...
+ get to sites when I'm on other computers
+ tags to sort stuff so I can have a bazillion different things listed without making it hard to find stuff
What else? I think I'm gonna have to start using it. Woo.
Optimist or pessimist?

Has anyone ever worked as a mail carrier in the U.S., or know someone who has? What about any other job with the postal service?
I'm wondering what the atmosphere was like, how much you got paid, how much independence the job offered, that sort of thing.
Ok, here's the background:
In april 06 i was suffering from severe allergies and the doc presribed me singulair which is also mainly used as asthma medication, but has been known to help with allergies. I didn't really use them until this winter as I was on other allergie meds too.
Around the time I was on them, i started having really bad asthma-like reactions to wood smoke, something i've never been bothered by before.
I've always had asthma-like reactions to exercise and cold weather, but never this, and never so severe.
I recently went for testing to see if i have asthma because the problem is getting so bad.
NOW, my question is, is it possible that the medication brought on these symptoms? I've never had anything like this happen before and im really skeptical of medications.
Also, im just sitting here right now, and having asthma-like symptoms.. i have never just gotten them from sitting here and doing noting....
To add: i've been off the singulair a month now.
damn it, there was 3 shows I wanted to watch tonight on tv and i can't remember what any of them were.
What are you watching tonight?
For those of you who watch 24 - what do you think of Tom Lennox?
I can't stand him. Everything he says gets under my skin for some reason.
1) What is your favorite song/album to listen to when:
a) you're totally happy and giddy
b) you're having sex
2) Have you ever had someone on your friends list whom you really, really liked disappear for months or years completely and not respond to any emails questioning their whereabouts? Did you wonder if something awful happened to them?
For those of you who are married or engaged, how did you know he/she was The One?
How long had you been dating?
How old were you when you first got engaged?
How old were you/will you be when you marry(-ied)?
For all of you iPod savvy people out there:
My husband paused his iPod. When he unpaused it, the screen still showed the song as being paused, but the song played. It will power down, but the same screen still shows on the iPod. It still works, but the display is screwed up.
I can't do a screen shot, so I'll describe it
*little padlock* Now Playing Batter life
76 of 233
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Right now the iPod is playing Breaking Benjamin, but that's what it shows on the screen.
I didn't buy this iPod. A friend won it at a McDonald's manager meeting almost a year ago. They couldn't use it, so I traded her a Nintendo DS for it. So I'm thinking there is no warranty. Can some one help? My husband is going to ask the guy that repairs iPods at work tomorrow, but I thought I'd see if there was any hope.
Whenever I try to upload anything slightly large at all (usually a music album, so around 50MB or so), no matter what site I use (MegaUpload, SendSpace, YouSendIt), it goes about halfway and then randomly goes "this page cannot be displayed" or whatever. My internet connection is fine, and I don't have any other windows open. (Usually I'm not even touching my laptop at all.) What am I doing wrong???? It's driving me insane.
Having an argument with my boyfriend, I need someone to clear something up for me.
Every week, my boyfriend, his ex-girlfriend, their kids and I try to have a civil meal together. For the sake of ease of transition for the kids and because family is very important to us. His ex and I get along pretty well, except for recently she's been taking pot shots at my cooking.
Last week, it was "Did you use frozen broccoli in this? I can taste it, I hate frozen broccoli" and "Luke likes it better when I used to add cheese to a recipie like this."
This week, it was "This lasagna is okay, but mine is better. Everyone at my office loves it when I bring mine in."
I say comments like this are rude and hurtful - it's not what you say, it's how you say it, and it is possible to be tactful, which her comments are not. He says she doesn't mean it that way, and she's not trying to insult me.
This was actually brought up by my sister, whose husband is interested in tracking down his mother.
The United States likes to misuse social security numbers for identification purposes, which can make tracking people down significantly easier. She asked me what, then, would be an equivalently valuable identification method in England?
Any ideas as to how we might find someone?
If you've ever lost a significant amount of weight, how did you do it?

When you're in custody and you're awaiting trial what is the place you're kept in called?
Is it a different place if you're charged with a felony vs. a misdemeanor? If so, what is that place called?
Any info you have about going to jail would be very helpful as I am writing a short story and I have no idea what going to jail is like.
1. What makes something worth pursuing?
2. If something is worth pursuing, what is the most you would sacrifice for it?
3. How do you usually make moral decisions? In other words, do you generally wonder what the perfect person would do and follow that? Or do you usually "follow your heart"? Or something else?
Thanks in advance.
Earlier this evening, I noticed a SUV in the Wal*Mart parking lot with a personalized license plate saying PORK. That's it. Just PORK. Anyone have any theories on what the story is behind that?
Do you have a personalized license plate? What does it say?
