To be old and wise you must first be young and stupid
And what about explainations for eyesight getting better (in my contact strength it got better by .25 in both eyes)? I thought it either stayed the same or got worse as people got older. . . (not complaining! lol just curious)
If so do they follow basic courtesy's with you? Examples would be keeping their personal items [books/cd's/bags/purses/etc] from taking over the common areas, cleaning up after themselves in the kitchen/bathroom, asking before going in the bathroom to take a shower during the evening when everyone is usually up and doing stuff and just may need to go in there?
Again if you have roommates do you try to follow basic courtesy's with them?
Even if you don't have roommates feel free to answer this question, what are some other common courtesy's or rules you think would be important to have with roommates?
fave: arizona green tea, showering, and the fact that my mind thinks in ways I never knew possible
least fave: forgetting what im saying as im saying it (sometimes) haha
When did "no" stop meaning "no"??
I'm at a loss for answers to these questions.
According to my psychology prof, some people who learned to speak English after childhood hear two distinct P sounds. He mentioned that it happens mostly with people who speak a certain mother tongue, but he couldn't remember which language it was.
2. What is something you do almost every day?
Not things like go pee, but maybe something like have a one hour workout.
What are some drinks I should try on my first visit to the bars? I want to try lots of new and interesting things, since I usually just stick to shots of rum and 151 right now haha.
Edit: Cornstarch + water! Thank you, you guys! I really appreciate it! There's a nifty video of it on YouTube.
2. I'm hosting a Stitch 'n Bitch + Craft party on Friday. I know that there will be people who won't be interested in knitting and crocheting. In the past we've worked with Sculpey and made flower-pens. Anyone have any ideas on what we could do this time? I was thinking about something with papier mache, but I'm afraid it won't dry fast enough for us to do much more than the sculpting/forming part.
Thanks in advance!
Will my skin always be this way? Is there anything I can do to dry it up, or not make it as greasy? Any of you have the same problem?
True or false?
Anyway, my question is what did you do for fun when you were a kid? What did you play with? Do you recall the any of the names of your childhood playmates?
We rode bikes, played in the woods, played with Barbies, etc. Typical 60's stuff. We had Barbies, bikes, a swimming pool (above ground), board games. The girls across the street were Colleen and Terri, a little further away were Judy and "Chickie".
I get very embarrassed about my hip size (it widened after having children). I have been large for a number of years and even with going to the gym and working out trying to get rid of this unwanted fat my hips/waist size, didnt go down much. I just don't want to inconvenience the person sitting next to me.
Thanx guys, be gentle.
1. Do you agree with the slant of the comic strips?
2. Which one's your favorite?

* He was a prostitute, but it was because he wanted to, there was no angsty reason behind it.
* His "act" was that he was the perfect pet, silent and obediant.
* He was raised in an atmosphere where sex was viewed as just another act of entertainment so in a way he's still fairly innocent and naive. (He doesn't get why it's such a big deal to some people.)
* In general he's quiet, smart and very devoted to the people he cares about.
* He's bisexual but prefers girls.
Anything? Anything at all? (Okay, anything besides "Nancy Boy", I've already got that one.)

When buying things online, do you search for discount codes?

4- What would you do with an extra $100?
5- AHH, math question! Not for homework, I'm not in school, and thus have forgotten this kind of thing. ;P Smarter than a fifth grader indeed. I'm in a lottery that will be happening tonight (YAY!) and they claim that NO TWO PEOPLE will get the same set of numbers. However, the numbers are set up as... 8 ONE digit numbers, ranging from 0-9. From my really bad math skills, I don't think that would be enough to cover as many tickets are likely to be sold for this thing. Am I way wrong, and there's hundreds of millions of combinations? I feel so dumb. :(
ETA: The math question has been answered! I'm surprised how easy it was when typed out. Super 'duh' moment here. Poor me. :(
I drove for 8 years a 1999 Honda Civic EX. Bought it brand new, but would rather stick to a used car 2004 or older. My price range is flexible but definitely nothing over 10,000.
1. What do you drive, and do you love/hate it?
2. Any suggestions on a vehicle for me?
3. And horror stories of past vehicles or anything you would stay away from?
THANKS so much!
If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be?
Assume that anything you wanted to endorse would be more thrilled to have you do so.
I would endorse:
-Kia (because no matter what nicer cars are out there, my Kia was good to me long before I got rich and famous, and because I think their cars are underated and if I could get more people to buy them I would)
-Taco Bell (because their nasty food is my guilty pleasure and if it's good enough for Carmen Electra to endorse, it's good enough for me)
-Some sportswear or sporting goods store, like REI or EMS (because it's an endorsement true to my real nature and interests, and the commercials would be fun to shoot!)
In light of this information, should he:

Study regarding its prevalence and the vaccine
Have you/will you get the vaccine for those 2 strains HPV?
Do you feel like in 10 years they'll be like, oops sorry it actually gives you heart disease/uterine cancer/some other serious medical side effect? (can vaccines even do this? I'm no doctor).
Does this make you worried?
My roommate is in the process of getting the vaccine for HPV (Gardasil)--it's a 3 step process I believe. Things like this make me wary when the first come out because they aren't around long enough for side effects to pop up, but like I said before I don't even know if this is relevant when dealing with vaccines.
Anyone know who this guy is?
b) If you do work the regular "normal" type job, is there something you'd rather be doing, or are you fine just the way things are? If you'd rather be doing something else, are you on a path to get there? If not, what would you say has gotten in the way of doing the things you want to do?

Do you anticipate your current education leading you to the life you'd like to live? (Or for those who are finished, did it lead you to such a life?)
b) If money/living expenses and time were of no concern, what would you want to learn, or learn how to do?

I am looking for a PIANO-ONLY version of a song from Titanic. It is NOT on the official soundtrack but rather off another called "Titanic: The Ultimate Collection." It's track 4, entitled "Rose's Theme (My Heart Will Go On - Solo Piano Version."
I'm finding billions of My Heart Will Go On midis but they all have weird synthesized instruments in them. I had the midi before I upgraded my computer, and know it is piano only.
Can you please help me find it? It's an absolutely beautiful piano version and I want to use NoteworthyComposer to help me learn to play it.
I've uploaded it in case you want to hear it -- nothing but piano -- click here.

...never eat sweets again for the rest of your life?
...be willing to shave your head and be bald for an entire year? You can't, however, tell anyone about the money.
...would you be willing to lose all sexual sensation in your various stimulatable areas (genitals, nipples,whatever) for the next 5 years? The horniness will still be there, however strong your sex drive is, and you will be aroused like you normally are, but you can't feel anything from sex of any kind
...be willing to be the surrogate mother for a couple who have the exact opposite views as you? If you're a liberal, they're bible-thumping, homeschooling, gay-hating ultra fundamentalists, and if you're a conservative, they're a religion-hating, anti-patriotic, same-sex marriage couple. You have to carry the baby to term and hand it over to them to raise, knowing full well that the kid will be raised to honor opinions you hate. This question's for the ladies
You call, but get a VM, you leave a message, but do not get a return phone call that night.
(Notes, 1. The lady in question did seem enthusastic about me calling when I told her I would 2. The date did end with a hug and kiss on the cheek. 3. The date did seem to go well as we spent almost 2 hours talking over coffee.
What do you do
If you picked call again, how long do you think I should wait?
Feel free to leave any other thoughts or suggestions in a comment.
I've been blown off enough times to know what it looks, sounds, and smells like and this has all the teltale signs, but I'm aware that does not mean this is what's happening for 100% certain. This has always been a safe place to ask for suggestions (i.e. I can be as insecure as I want yet still get a wide range of opinions.)
Thanks again everyone.

Okay- so I have had this song stuck in my head all day, I dont know the name of the song... but its about philadelphia... and I think it might be a cover of the song streets of philadelphia by bruce springsteen but i'm not sure. It came out in the late 90's i think, and its got either some old man singing some sort of a blues-y spiritual song. The chorus has this like... doot doot n' doot doot n doo. part. There are also churchbells in the song.
if anyone knows what song this is, it would be great.

I'm a huge film buff/geek, and I want to keep track of the movies I see, and write little reviews of them. I like to keep track of how many movies from the AFI's Top 100 and IMDB's Top 250 and things like that I've seen. I was wondering if there was a website that will kind of help me keep track of that. . .I belong to a book site and it has a little form where you can rate the book, write down its tags, and add a little blurb, and also look at books others have read. You even have to have a username and you have a little "bookshelf." I guess what I want would be described as a movie journal? I'm not exactly sure how to describe it further. I guess I could use LJ or even a microsoft word document if all else fails, right? Thanks a lot!

I know there's a ton of different types out there, just want to hear some experiences anyone else has had, or any recomendations. Thanks :)

So since I haven't had any real exercise in probably 2 years, how can I start using this treadmill?
I worked out today for 30 minutes (5 min. walking, 5 min. running, repeating) and I felt like hell afterward. I pushed myself hard and I felt nauseated and dehydrated afterward. I'm a Diabetic so I think my sugar was way down too because I felt like total crap. I took a shower and felt fine afterward. Better than fine, pretty great.
I don't think that I should work out that hard again tomorrow. My boyfriend said I worked too hard and that I'll just drain myself doing that 5 days out of the week and probably give up altogether.
Should I maybe walk/run on the treadmill for 10 minutes everyday? I Googled and didn't find much. I just found out that you shouldn't eat 3-4 hours before working out (I ate 30 minutes before) and that you shouldn't work out more than 12 hours apart from the next session. I was planning on doing 10 minutes 3 times a day but that's not going to work with the 12 hour thing.
So can anyone give me any tips on what my walking and running regimen should be for a manual treadmill, for someone who is out of shape and hasn't exercised in 2 years?
Please don't just tell me to ask my doctor because I don't have health insurance and don't tell me to go to a gym because I can't afford that rightnow.
Thank you for any help that you can provide.
