1. do you think alcoholism is based on frequency or motivation? for instance, my roommate drinks pretty much every night. i consider her an alcoholic, not because she gets drunk every night (although she does get messy drunk almost every time she drinks), but because i think her drinking is how she deals with problems, escapes from life, etc.

2. on a completely unrelated note, why would someone ask me what my "sign" was if they weren't flirting awkwardly? it wasn't a way to start the conversation either - i already know her (although not well), and she brought it up totally randomly and never explained why.

3. what asshole invented valentine's day?

I've had a killer canker sore for a couple days and I knew that hydrogen peroxide can potentially help, so I did a Google search to see how much I should dilute it for mouthwash. I was actually surprised with the results saying that hydrogen peroxide can be used for so many things such as cleaning, dish washer detergent, facial astringent, laundry, detoxifying bath and many other things. One article even said how potentially helpful it can be to ones health by ingesting a few drops of it a day.

Have you heard of this, and if so, do you partake in anything that involves hydrogen peroxide other than the typical disinfectant?

Yes, for a question I posted about marriage a while back. I didn't really care, but I read through the post about me and had a few good chuckles.

I have a webcomic that I absolutely love working on. I'd like to improve on how I draw people, though. I tend to draw them in very stiff positions, instead of looking normal and relaxed. Are there any good sites that can help me improve on how to draw people (especially hands)?

Do you like a man/woman in uniform?

Me? No. I think they all look identical and nearly each and every one has a superiority complex. Plus, I feel that most of the people they are fighting for arent worth saving in the first place. Therefore, I cant really have a uniform fetish.


So every Wednesday my mum goes out to her friends and has dinner there which leaves me, my brother and dad to choose something for dinner that we haven't tried before/haven't had much of.

Three weeks ago: Hearts (dads choice)
Two weeks ago: Steak (my mum told my dad it was my choice, liar!)
Last week: Liver (brothers choice)

So since I get to jump ahead of my dad thanks to my mum, what do you suggest we have?
Pretty much open to anything as long as it's simple to prepare. Oh and if you name products or anything, bare in mind I'm in England so we might not have the same over here.

Not limited to just meat either as that seems to be the pattern as the weeks have gone.

first post

This is my first post ever. My best friend watches this group and often posts, so I thought I'd try.
My question is really weird. Several years ago, 2002 in fact, I was watching TV really late at night and saw the strangest cartoon. I believe one of those video networks, like MTV or VH1, was showing a series of independant cartoons, possibly like a film festival or something. For some reason, I have the feeling it was a Canadian-made cartoon, but that may be wrong. The one I am concerned about was drawn in such a way that it reminded me of School House Rock, and the "plot" was that a little letter-shaped guy was looking at a statue of another letter, and he turns to another bystander to say the name of the letter. The bystander disagrees and states the name of another letter, so they get to arguing. The whole time, though, there's no real dialogue, just these letter-shaped guys essentially squeaking the name of their letter somewhat angrily. As the cartoon went on, more and more letters kept coming in, arguing about what the statue was, until the King came and proclaimed which letter was right, but only after some huge ridiculous war-like rioting scene. Not only do I not remember what this cartoon was, I don't think they ever showed the title. I know it sounds really, really stupid probably, but I have some memory attached to it and so it's important to me that I find out what it is.
So here's the question for the post: Does anyone know what the heck I'm talking about? Can someone give me the name of the cartoon? Am I lucky enough that it's on YouTube?
Thanks for your help, sorry the post is so long.

coachella question

for those of you who have been to Coachella and know how onsite camping works:

I plan to go with a group of friends and stay all 3 days/nights. one of the friends that I'm going with purchased an onsite camping ticket, and it said that it was good for 10 people. however, on the Coachella website (and on the festival tickets), it says each person must have their own camping ticket. does this mean that everyone in our group needs to buy their own $45 camping ticket, if even we plan to camp together/in the same tent?

plz advise!

1) The weather outside is so horrible (everything is coated in a layer of ice) that classes are cancelled! What would you do if you had all this free time?
I've got some work I need to take care of, then I'm going to finally update my comic and watch some movies with my sister (her classes are cancelled too).

2) What were you doing at 9 PM last night?
Cleaning out my turtles' tank!

3) Do you have pets that you named in pairs? (ex: Sonny and Cher, Starsky and Hutch, etc.)
Two of my cats are named Smokey and Bandit, and I named my turtles Bulk and Skull (points if you remember what the names are from).

You are driving on a snowy road and lose control of the car. You can not stop but you can semi-control which direction you are skidding in.

You can avoid hitting two of the three groups so who would you steer towards?

Do you think I'll be called in to work today? Note: If the store opens, I'll be called in.
Normally on Wednesday my manager opens. She goes in an hour earlier than usual (7 in lieu of 8) to do all of her inventory and goes through all of the standard opening stuff and opens at 9. It's now a little past 11 o'clock, and she's yet to dig her car out of the snow. The street department is out but has yet to touch our parking lot. We were closed yesterday, which means bread wasn't put down (in short, it'll take a lot longer to bake bread this morning than it would on a regular day). Most of our Wednesday business is lunchtime.

Also, when will Larry King stop talking about Anna Nicole Smith?
I generally don't watch Larry King, but I turn the channel to CNN at midnight in case, per chance, he has something of interest to cover that night before I watch Anderson Cooper 360. But so help me, if he dedicates another show to just talking about her I'm going to lose my mind. D:

Attention New Yorkers!

I'm going to NY next week (half business, half pleasure) and making a detour to Times Square on my way to White Plains. I've been to NY several times before where I rented a car, but I won't be getting my car until I get to White Plains because the first part is for pleasure. Also, never traveled in snow before, so it's kinda freaking me out. I have to pick someone up at Penn Station on my way to our hotel in Times Square. What's the fastest/easiest way to get from JFK to Penn Station? The only things I'm familiar with are a) cabs, b) the Air Train from the airport.

Why does everyone seem so scared of sex?

I just read another article about how Paris and Britney are turning America's children into "prosti-tots." I'm not a fan of celebs like them, but the main focus of the article seemed to be that they would make kids think it's all right to have sex at younger ages (a study said people who were more exposed to sex in the media were more likely to have sex at age 16 than people not exposed to it). They also decried the media as being more filled with sex than 20-30 years ago.

My question is, what's the big deal? As long as they're consenting and they are infomed about sex (STDs, birth control, anatomy) why is it so horrible for them to do it? I'm talking about this beyond the religious values, because I know plently of non-religious parents who freaked out about their high school kids having sex. My parents view was always to be open with me about sex and give me the info, so that I would be comfortable talking to them when the time came. Couldn't the parent's fears (pregnancy, STDs) be controlled if the parents were willing to be open with their kids about it? Is it just a moralitity thing, even beyond the religious issues?

Quick and probably been asked before:

Say you have a purebred puppy. You get the papers and all the other fun requirements for the dog to be registered with the AKC. You're set on training this dog to compete in agility trials.

-Does the AKC require the dog to remain intact throughout its life (as in not speutered) to remain qualified for registration?
-Does the dog have to be intact to be eligible to compete in agility trials (no specific level, but assume that you want to be awesome and run in big-name competetions eventually)?

I feel that I should know this.. but a quick glance at the FAQ on the AKC site turned up nothing and a lot of other things I'm finding through google are tl;dr. Figured someone on this community would have an idea, no?

Cleaning People Question

If you work in an office or anywhere that closes down for that day and then has other people come in to clean the place, have cleaning people (or the cleaning person) ever started before you were done for the day? And I don't mean you are staying late, what I mean is they are starting while the business or office is still operating.

Our cleaning person is the spouse of one of the people who work here and this is a small office. Every Friday this person is in here at least an hour, sometimes two, before we are set to leave for the day. This person is wiping things and emptying garbage cans, etc. while we're (supposed to be) still working. I find it annoying and so do some others. One other time we complained because this person was running the vacuum while we were still working and other business people were coming in to meet with various people here, the phone would be ringing and it was impossible to hear the person on the other end of the line, etc. The boss put a stop to the vacuuming before our quitting time but still lets this person come in and clean. I think its not only unprofessional, its annoying as hell.

I have a neighbor (he is maybe around 65/70 years of age), and EVERY holiday he gives each person in my family gifts. Nice, right?

Well, the thought is very sweet, and I really appreciate that he cares enough about us to do that, but the things he gives me are just...well, I just don't know what to do with them. For Christmas he gave me a Cushi Pals Puppy Massaging Pillow. If you press it's paw, it vibrates (the mechanism is located in the crotch area of the animal, no less), and it's filled with beads. Today he gave me a Beanie Baby with a heart on it. On my last birthday he gave me an inner tube. The Christmas before last he gave me a candy dish type object shaped like a Christmas Tree.

I don't know what to do with this stuff. I don't want to get rid of it, but you know...I just don't know what else to do.

One is energetic and perverted and has funky colored short hair. She's drinking shots and talks about dance and theater and music.

One is loud and flirty and wears brightly colored clothes. She's drinking some exotic drink you've never heard of and talks a lot about her job in a hospital and how much she loves it.

One is quiet but witty and wears muted colors. She's drinking a beer and talks about her job as a computer programmer and playing video games.

Which one of these girls, based on the information you have, would you be most attracted to? Least attracted to?

Which one would you most likely get along with? Least likely?

Which one would you party with and forget about in the morning?

This is just something from a conversation I just had, and it's got me curious.

edit: What do you think would make a sexy pinup poster?

What real life application is there to recognizing rhyming? I have to put a "real life application" on every lesson plan I write for school, and I'm usually okay with coming up with stuff, but this poetry lesson plan has stumped me. All I can come up with is so they can be rappers. While my teacher has a sense of humor, I don't think she'll accept that if I turn it in.

(And I'll go ahead and tell myself to do my own homework, to save you the trouble).

Best battle scene from a movie?

I have a few.

-The opening battle scene from Gladiator.
- The battle of Helms Deep from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
- The battle at Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

I'm so nerdy.

I became curious about this because of some of the responses to my last post (about teens and sex):

1. Non-Virgins: Did you feel different after you lost you virginity? If so how- emotionally, psychologically, physically, any other way? Did it change you?

2. Virgins: Do you expect to feel different/change once you lose your virginity? If so, what changes do you expect?

(I didn't really feel any different, and neither did my then-boyfriend- it was just like taking the next step. So I'm curious about how other people have felt, since it seems to be a much larger deal for most people.)

I've always thought that the Naked Cowboy in Times Square was someone everyone knew about.  But after debating with a few other people, everyone else says its just New Yorkers who know about him.

Anyone mind settling this debate?

Tattoo, Part 2

Alright, I asked about getting it in  a brown tone, so today I am asking the overall opinion of a group of strangers...

Take a look at this . It's the design and the location where I want it.

So, random group of strangers... should I get this tattoo this weekend?

EDIT: This is my design and my picture. I Photoshopped it.

Oh... and if no, please tell me why. Ugly design? Ugly place? I am not concerned about pain or the like...
