http://www.cnn.com/2007/EDUCATION/01/31/gangsta.parties.ap/index.html

Several different groups of college kids, identified in the article as white college kids, have thrown "ghetto" or "gangsta" parties at campuses across the nation.
(Some have done MLK parties in blackface too, which is unquestionably offensive and tacky, I'm not debating this).

College leaders, black fraternity leaders, and the NAACP is speaking out against these ghetto parties where people wear bling, grills on their teeth, and bring machine guns as being
derogatory and offensive to black Americans.

Personally, I think when the living image of these stereotypes permeates and is seen everywhere in our pop culture today, that emulating this is not about race, and that the NAACP needs to pull
the stick out of its ass. Ghetto and gangsta isn't synonymous with black, mexicans, asians, or whites.

Do you find the throwing of these parties offensive, or do you think the NAACP needs to pull the stick out of its ass as well?

Sometimes, they probably don't understand what I'm saying but I'm sure they understand the tone of my voice somehow.

3) What was the strangest 'phase' you ever went through?
My 'punk rock' phase a few years ago, I dyed my hair green and wore fishnets and black lipstick, I thought I was so hardcore. It was horrible.

It's 2 am and I can't sleep. I get like this every full moon and the days before and after it.

Does anyone else have this problem?

It was so bad last night I didn't even fall asleep until 5am. And I had to get up at 9:30. Argh. I don't know if it's the light of the moon or what, but I have black curtains over my window and I still can't sleep.

What conditions do you need to be able to get a perfect sleep? How long does it usually take you to fall asleep at night?

I need total darkness and a fan blowing on me. I can't be too hot or too cold. About 68 degrees is nice. It usually takes me anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours to fall asleep. My husband is able to fall asleep in anywhere from 20 seconds (I swear!) to 5 minutes. He's crazy.

1)Do you ever start conversations with wrong numbers?
2)Do you people call you a lot thinking your number is some one elses?
3)Whats the weirdest thing that has ever happened during a wrong number call?

My Answers

1) I generally dont try to start conversing with them, but sometimes they do with me
2) I literally get called every other day. its ridiculous
3) i woudlnt call them weird... but some funny stuff has come up...an elderly women kept calling me and leaving me messages. my message clearly states my etc and she would leave me a message going "gail? who is coral, is that your granddaughter? why did you have her record your message? anyways gail, id like to invite you over for lunch on thursday..." and it went on and on and on and i got like 5 of these. Finally i got ahold of her and it took a good 10 minutes for me to explain she had the wrong number

Another story... when i got my cell phone last year i matched the number very closely to my home phone.. one of my friends always dialed the beginning wrong and always called these people. sometimes she left messages, or called late at night and often she spoke with a woman who always got angry with her. One day the women called my friend and straight out asked her if she was having an affair with her husband and that if she was she wanted to know immediatly. it was brilliant.

How can I get a free Photoshop program?

I'm usually pretty internet/computer savvy, but I'm feeling lost here. I've googled, but I have to pay for memberships at different sites to get it, and I don't want to if I don't HAVE to.

I mean a decent Photoshop program that I can actually DO something to the pictures. I have 3.0 on my computer, but I can't do anything with it. I don't know how I got it, either. lol.

Side question - is there another program that is great for editing pictures/making icons/etc? How do I get that, if so? Oh, and free if available of course.

Thanks, TQC! :D

EDIT:
should have clarified, not going for anything illegal here. If it is always something you have to pay for that's fine, but anywhere to get it really cheap, or any website I can download it from that is fairly reliable (again, to pay for it from them)?

Thanks again, heh

1) What did you have decorating your walls of your bedroon when you were a kid?
I had 2 framed Edward Gorey posters, a Magic Eye poster, a poster of a killer whale, a wooden tic-tac-toe board and pieces, a framed painting I got during a trip to Eastern Europe. My mother gave me a NKOTB poster when I was in 5th grade, so I put it up behind the door that remained open at almost all times. Man, how embarrassing.
2) What was the first movie you remember seeing in a theater and with whom did you see it?
I remember insisting my father take me to see UHF. I was a nerd right from the start.
3) Are you particularly controlling about any rooms in your house/apartment/whatever?
I feel a certain authority over the kitchen that makes me antsy when my hubband does stuff in a way other than how I do it. I'm much more efficient and clean the pots and pans as I go, whereas when he cooks I end up doing all the clean-up. Gr.
4) When you go to the bathroom at work, are you the kind of person who's in and out in under a minute or do you take your time?
I can't figure out how some people can enter, pee, wipe, and exit all in the time it takes me just to do the second step. How do they do it?
5) Where you ever stood up or made to wait for a date?
The other night my mother came 1 hour and 10 minutes late for our dinner reservations. That was a first for me.

My nieces in Pittsburgh are going to a Pens hockey game tonight! The game isn't being shown here in California but I am wondering, is there any way I can get a copy of the game later? Are they posted online anywhere?

This is actually a request from their Grandpa here in CA...this is what he writes:

"I have an emergency. Tonight, at 7:30PM EST (4:30PM PST), there is a hockey game - Pittsburgh Penguins against whoever. Chelsea and Jenna will be there at the game, holding up a big sign, wishing one of older players Happy Birthday since today is his b'day. I want to figure out how I can see the game either later tonight, or at a later time. This would involve either taping it, or having some knowledge about how to view past games."

Big fake plastic or glass diamond ring? [Feb. 1st, 2007|01:18 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[nicole_bitchie]
[music |Lost Highway Soundtrack]

My best friend's birthday is coming up in March and I want to get her something that she's been wanting ever since we were kids but I don't know where to get it.

She's very flamboyant and she loves big, gaudy jewelry. She also makes her own big, gaudy jewelry. Well, she's always wanted a huge fake diamond ring. I'm not talking like the size of a dime but something huge like the diamond on Snatch, like the size of a Barbie doll's head, like maybe 2 inches or bigger but not something that is ridiculously too big. She's very short so I don't want anything that's going to eat her whole hand up.

She's told me that she doesn't care if its made of glass or plastic but she would prefer plastic because its lighter. She doesn't care if its a ring or a loose fake diamond.

I've gone to craft stores and the biggest diamonds they sell are about an inch and they're those cheap ones that aren't all pretty faceted. The diamond in Snatch is perfect. If I could find a plastic or glass version of that, that would be awesome.

I've gone to flea markets, various jewelry stores, consignment shops, antique shops, kiosks in the mall, anywhere I could think of that might sell a big fake diamond and found nothing.

The only thing I found that came close was a paperweight that was a tiny bit bigger than 2 inches but the woman wanted $100 for it and my friend specifically told me not to spend too much on it, that she'd feel bad. I don't have much money anyway. It was too heavy anyway to be comfortably worn as a ring.

She's a really great friend of mine and I want to get this for her. So if you know where I could possibly get this, please let me know. Thank you.

So I'm seeing about organizing an information database for something that would allow others to contribute and edit information as they choose. I realize I'm pretty much describing a wiki. The problem is that I really don't like the way wikis are set up or what goes into editing them. They're a bit on the ugly and complicated side. I have a domain with MySQL and whatnot, so hosting isn't an issue.

Are there any other database set-ups I could use other than a wiki? Or am I pretty much stuck with that?

1. What's the most ridiculous thing that's ever happened to you?

2. Do you rescue turtles in teh middle of the road? Under what circumstances? Under what circumstances would you not stop?

My answers:
1. I was hit by a deer. My husband and I were driving and a deer came running out. My husband immediately screeched to a halt... only to have the deer run into the side of the car. It left a dent, but the deer went bounding (apparently unhurt) back into the woods.

2. Yes, but last week I was on a three lane road with medium traffic and, as it was a main road, didn't know how to stop and save it. I don't know what became of it, but I've been feeling guilty ever since, even though I know it was probably too dangerous to stop and block a few lanes of traffic.

In my Social Problems class, we need to pull together a 5-8 picture photo essay.

I want to do my photo essay on homelessness. However if I were homeless, I don't know that I would want my picture on someone's homework assignment.

I know where to go (downtown) in my city to find homeless people doing their daily thing -- waiting in lines at the soup kitchen, waiting in lines to get a bed for the night, sitting on the sidewalk panhandling etc... Those are the pictures I want to take (or find on the internet - that is allowed too).

So, if you were taking pictures of someone, would you go up to them, tell them what the project is for, then ask permission to take their picture? Or would you just snap away and assume consent because they are in a public place?

  • How do you react when people sing "Happy Birthday" to you in a restaurant?

  • Would you add one year to your life if it meant taking one year from the life of someone in the world selected at random? Would it matter if you were told whose life you had shortened?

  • If you could have free, unlimited service for 10 years from an extremely good cook, chauffeur, housekeeper, masseuse, or personal secretary, which would you choose and why?

I have two rolls of quarters my mom gave me for laundry before I got back to college from Christmas break. Problem is, I'm really hungry and the caf won't open for another hour and a half or so.

So, TQC, should I spend some of my laundry money on food, knowing that if I called my mom right now and asked for more money, she would probably put some in my bank account? Or should I save the quarters in case I have some sort of weird emergency with my clothes where OMG I NEED QUARTERS RIGHT NOW?

For the past five years, I have been putting together a book of advice for my son. Thanks to the internet, I've had people from all over the world contribute to it. People have added anything ranging from music recommendations to opinions on love, life, and politics. I plan on giving him this book on his fifteenth birthday (which will be February 9, 2017).

Do any of you have something you would like to contribute to it?

If so, can you please include your first name (or make one up) and your location (even if it's just what country you are from)?

It doesn't have to be serious advice. Believe me, there is sillyness already included. Cursing is fine, as I'm sure at fifteen he'll be doing some of his own.

[mood |blahblah]

So I seem to have this extreme phobia of driving/riding in a car. When I was 15, I went through the written portion of drivers ed like every one else, but once it came to the actual driving part, I freaked and quit after the first day. I haven't driven since. I passed the permit test when I turned 18, so I could drive with someone who's had their license for over 5 years, but I have no desire to. I hate going anywhere with my husband in rush hour, and I constantly see death looming in the side-view mirrors. I've never been in anything more than a minor accident, so I don't know where this trepidation is coming from. Sometimes I even get panic attacks in the car, and it's not uncommon for me to just close my eyes the entire time.

My questions:

Does anyone else have this problem?

Anyone gotten past it?

What did it take to get over it?

Should I see a therapist? How should I get there if I can't drive myself?

Have you ever tried one of those driving schools? I was thinking about doing that because they would probably be really patient with me and I would also get a discount on my car insurance.


My husband is ok with me staying home right now, but he wants me to be able to drive in 3 years when our son is old enough for kindergarten. We plan on sending him to a Montessori school, and I don't know how the busing will be for that. Also, I want the option of doing something when he is in school (like work or community college classes). I don't want to just get knocked up again to pass my time.

Bonus Question: What's a good way to beat a cold before it gets full blown? I'm taking zinc lozenges, but they aren't really helping.

My googling skills have evaded me today.

For anyone who's a food network canada addict like me, you may have heard of a show called "Fixing Dinner" with Sandi Richard. Anyhow, basically what she does is create a monthly meal plan for a family who wants to dine in/together more often.

I'm trying to save some cash, so I thought that something like this would help me a little. What I was trying to do today was find a similar pre-made meal plan for a month, or even maybe a week that will have a grocery list, etc. like what Sandi gives to the family. Anyone know where I can find one?

Oh yeah, I don't have a family or anything, but I'm pretty sure I could adjust the meals for one.

1. Somehow over the years I've ended up with over 8000 songs on iTunes (I dated a radio DJ for awhile). I've been deleting some of it, but it's painful, because for some reason part of me feels I need this much music. Have you ever felt the need to purge some of your music? Obviously I don't listen to everything in there. What should I delete? Joke answers or serious answers, I don't really care.

2. Is there any way to re-set yours iTunes so that the play count of all the songs is zero again?

3. What band with a female singer covered "Stinkfist" originally by Tool?

4. These are my playlists:
"Rock out with yo cock out" - current obsession music
"Lost at sea"- songs about being lost at sea (duh)
"rain" (songs about rain, or to listen to when it's rainy or stormy out)
"a new adjective for nice" (pleasant, happy, lovely songs)
"monstruo" (songs about monsters, dark songs, creepy, sexy... vampires, demons, werewolves, zombies, whatever)
"four spells" (songs about the seasons, weather, time, months, etc)

What are some songs you think I could add to my playlists?

Here's the scenario: Say you can't stand a way a person lives their life. You are adamantly against it and when asked you say you don't agree with it and it goes against everything you believe.

Is it possible to say you don't have a problem with this person? Can someone honestly say they like people whose lifestyles go against their beliefs?




To me, it is bs. I think you can disagree with certain aspects of a way a person lives their life, but to come out and say you whole heartedly disagree with who the person is as a whole, but still like the person doesn't make sense to me.
