What is it about bad boys that is so unbearably sexy? Or is it just me?
Can someone help me out por favor?
EDIT: I decided it would just be easier to being in pictures of my best friend and boyfriend, as the thing has to be at least two minutes long. Thanks for those who helped though.
Do you agree? In other words, is getting a tattoo a way of conforming?
Since tattoos are so much more common now, what do you think will be the next extreme thing to be become mainstream? Suspensions? Skydiving? Finding the hay in the needle stack?
What do you think would be the coolest sport to have a professional circuit? It can be any kind of game, serious or silly or even made up.
What looks nicer: black and white or sepia?
1. What is your weekly food budget?
2. Who does this budget buy food for?
3. What are your typical eating habits (e.g. always home-cooked, fast food everyday, restaurant everyday, etc.?)
4. Where are you from (region, city, country, whatev.?)
5. Random: If you have a Panera Bread Co. or a Saint Louis Bread Co. in your area, and you remember right off hand, what is the price of a "You Pick Two" meal? How about for some other random item?
Here are my answers and explanations:
1. The budget varies widely, from about $20-80. I try to keep it around $30 for myself because I feel guilty if it's more, but at $30 I feel like I'm really limited. I don't know what is considered an "okay" amount to spend on food.
2. I buy food for myself and often my wife, but the $30 is my best guess for myself. Counting her meals, I spend around $45-50 most weeks.
3. Much of my food comes from work and cheap fast food. The rest I make at home out of a can or box. I only drink water, so that saves me a lot of money.
4. I'm from San Diego, CA. Food here is among the most expensive in the US. Because I'm trying to establish what is "normal," or at least baseline, I want to be able to account for regional variation as best I can.
5. I work at Panera, and, like many companies, we strategically don't put prices on the web because of regional variation. The "You Pick Two" in San Diego is $7.09. For a random item, a bowl of soup is $3.79.
My nose is really cold, and it's annoying.
2. I have a question about pre-sale concert tickets. The pre-sale for Bright Eyes starts this weekend. They are going to be at Town Hall for 7 days! As far as I know, Town Hall has seats. Would the best seats be included in the pre-sale or would they be held until the general sale? Or does it vary by band/venue/whatever? I've only bought pre-sale tickets for venues without seats so I'm unsure.
3. How much of a loser would I be if I bought tickets to see Bright Eyes all 7 days?
I'd probably be a pretty big loser.
4. Do you like cheese doodles? Do you prefer the crunchy kind or the puffed kind?
Sometimes I like them, sometimes I hate them. When I'm in a cheese doodle mood I prefer the puffed ones.
5. Does the term "subculture" offend you? If someone referred to something as a "co-culture" would know what they were talking about?
No, it offends my Intercultural Communications professor to no end though, he makes us say co-culture. I think co-culture sounds stupid.
1. Do you ever look up your schools and see who else goes/went to your school and has a livejournal?
2. Are any of them members here?
1. Yep just did haha
2. Yes but I don't know this person since they've already graduated...wylddelirium
What's written on your hand right now?
ETA: OK, no offense, but if it's "nothing," just skip the question.
This would be the absolute worst time for me to get sick.
I already ate some tylonol, what else do I do before I go to bed?
The drive is four hours long and it's a ten-gallon freshwater with probably five fish.
Now on the flip side. You are watching porn. A friend asks what you are doing. How do you respond? (If you think porn is nasty or whatever, you don't have to answer this one.)
I have one friend who I became awesome friends with because I admitted to him I was watching porn (he loved my openness and honesty), and I have gotten into really tense arguments with others because of it. Where do you stand?

How about the blanket?
Would you prefer silky or fluffy blankets?

If there arent any free ones are there any relatively inexpensive ones (under $50)?
Thanks I got my answer!

3. Before taking my car to a shop for yearly state inspection, would it be cheaper to purchase a few parts like oil filter, wiper blades, air filter, et cetera from the store compared to paying for those parts that need to be replaced right from the shop?
4. How can I replace windshield wiper blades on my own?
5. What are any other suggestions for getting prepared for car inspection? Ex: filling up a gas tank till it gets full.

Here's an article on em if you want to know more.
A friend of mine is co-hosting an event.
It’s a block party, held by an art gallery. The even is directed at young children and elderly people. There will be workshops, activities, etc all relevant to painting and drawing and so on. It’s free.
Now, she needs to come up with a name for the event (something 'arty'-her words, not mine) and an activity that both the elderly and the children can do together. She’s asked me for help..so, of course I’m asking TQC ;)
edited- she just informed me the name needs to be in spanish.

2) Can you name a caucasian woman who is average size like those three woman, and who is known as being sexy/beautiful? People keep mentioning Camryn Manheim to me, and that's so not true. (Though I personally find her to be attractive.)
3) Are you as freaked out at that Korn acoustic version of Freak on a Leash as I am? (It was my song with my first boyfriend, which is weird enough anyway.)
2. Do you know anyone with the same name as someone famous? There's a Sylvia Brown in my building...hehe.
3. What's the coolest thing you've found just laying around in public? I found this guy hiding under a bush. He resides in my office now :D
4. If you were Jesus, would you have your followers get 666 tattoos?
I tried Windex and Goo Gone, but neither one works AT ALL.
How do I effectively clean up this really disgusting and annoying mess?
1- would you tolerate any level of disrespect from a person that is old enough to know better? (explanation under the cut)

6- How often do you get sick? Are you under weight, average weight, or overweight? I'm trying to prove something to someone. :P (I'm trying to prove that the less close to 'normal' weight you are, the more likely you are to get sick or generally have a bad immune system.)

3.) Have you ever had to put an animal down? What were the circumstances?

I'm going to DC at the end of the month. Pretty much everywhere you go in DC (museums and such) you have to walk through those scanners and metal detectors and you're supposed to put your purse/bag/what-have-you on the conveyor belt to be scanned.
Is it better to put a digital camera on the belt or carry it through?
I've got an essay and an exam which I must either ace or choose a new major due to the failiure of. (Yay for sentence structure!)
Which is worse (for a checkup): the doctor or the dentist?
Are you a cat person or a dog person? (Or, like me, a fish person)?
what is the area around it like? I've seen the campus from their website but I'm interested in what's around the school.
2. What is this? At first I thought it was a shelter type thing, but it's closed so I'm not sure if that can be it. Than I was thinking maybe it's a bonfire, but they wouldn't have that so close to the trees.
EDIT: They are named Conor Oberst, because I uploaded them at the same time as the actual Conor Oberst pictures and I didn't bother to change it.
how the hell do i get rid of/cover up the smell until i can get under there or..well..nature takes its course and the smell dies off.
you all are creative. help!
i hate mice.
The neighbors, however, are total and absolute hicks. Their yard is awful, they have a couch in the middle of their back yard, and their house looks like it's been hit by a small tornado. Everybody else in the area keeps their stuff nice looking. So, in foresight of the fact that we don't want to stare at their very, very obvious eyesores, we'd like to put up a privacy fence.
Problem: we're on a corner lot, and it's irregular to boot. So when we do put up the fence, it will look something like this:
If you were buying a house and saw a wierd-ass fence in the back yard, would you like the fact that it IS fenced, or hate the fact that it's really, really funkily shaped?
Edit: my boyfriend swears that I'm remembering the property lines wrong, so here's his suggested MSpaint version.
2. I was reading an interview today in which the interviewer kept using the words "alot" and "fenominal." Does that sort of this tick you off as much as it does me?

5. Have you developed any new interests or hobbies recently?

How expensive are they to install?
How much does it make your electricity bill go up?
Are there alternatives? I live on the 3rd floor of an apartment building and it'd be seriously obnoxious to have a massive extension cord running from my apartment all the way down to my car...but I'm at my wits end here so I'm willing to deal with that.
2. Do you paint your fingernails? Get manicures? What color(s) are your favorite and which ones do you avoid?
3. Do you have a planner? Do you actually use it? Do you use something like Google calendar instead?

For those who are home from work/school due to weather: Whatcha doin'? I actually worked a little bit from home, and now I am going to clean, and then make fish tacos.
What do you use to wash your face?
Are there any zit creams that actually work?
...but I am wondering something else along similar lines.
Do you ever refer to God, or Jesus, as something other than those names? More friendly, kinda conversational. Se, I don't pray in the strictest sense. Be I at a church or just going about my day...I chat. Start with a something as insignificant as "How's your day going?" and off I go from there.
Point is, as I would when chatting with anybody, I don't always use just the generic presented name. Originally I referred to God as "The Creator", which is mildly ominous but accurate. Then, in passing, as the Big Guy. Sometimes just as Big G.
In referring to Jesus, to God, I either go with "the Kid" or simply just "J".
Anybody else do anything like this?
2 You are walking out to your car from work (or school or whatever) and you see a piece of trash on the ground. Do you pick it up?
3 Hey, is your refigerator running?
4 Would you throw a banana peel from your car window?
5 For that matter, do you litter? If no - is there anything you do litter?
6 If you don't litter and someone litters while in your car, do you open their door and push them out?
I went on Monday, and after 45 mins of trying, she decided to leave the remaining root, as digging further would be too traumatic! Am I going to die? Lolz, no seriously, how bad is this? Any personal or anecdotal experiences?
It's still pretty sore and I'm really worried about dry socket and infection, and bleh! I go back tomorrow, I just wondered if anyone else had been through this and how it turned out for them.
Bonus points if it doesn't involve a relative getting sick (I already used that one). I'm thinking about using stomach flu, but I'm not sure.

If so which one?
What do you do there?
Does anyone know if you can change it back?

My questions are:
1) whether or not you went to college, how did you go about finding a 'real-world' job? Where did you look? Did you write cover letters to each application? If you looked online, where?
2) I was a psychology major.
If you graduated with a psych degree, were you able to find a decent job in the field or is there no hope before graduate school?
3) My parents have suggested getting my real-estate license, just for the hell of it, even though that's not what I want as a career. Has anyone done that successfully? Do you recommend it? Is it a hard job?
Should I invoice this friend for the work I did for her last fall and am now not receiving payment on?
If I do invoice her, how much should I charge?
But I feel like they'd ask different questions for this job...than what I usually got asked. Someone please help me with what questions they'd possibly ask me. AHHH! I'm having a nervous breakdown. =\
2.Do people still think calling people emo is funny, witty, cool,etc?
3.Should people judge others, even if they don't know them, about the "reasons" a person has for being depressed? For example, do you think it's fair to determine that your hypothetical friend can't possibly be depressed because his/her home life is decent, he/she is attractive, or because they openly talk about their feelings?
I guess the reason I ask these questions is because some ass who I take lab with commented that anorexia doesn't exist, it's just chicks who want to look like movie stars. He also commented that depressed and bipolar people can snap out of it if they really wanted to. I think all of that is bullshit. I'm bipolar so I know that the snap out of it thing does NOT work. And a person has to be really dumb to think anorexia doesn't exist. I also used to work with kids with mental illness and was hospitalized years ago, and if I had a dollar for every time I heard someone comment about some kid being emo or faking it I'd be a millionaire. Why in this day and age is there still such a stigma attached to mental illness?

I was looking around on the internet for home remedies, and saw some stuff about Vicks VapoRub, Listerine, tea tree oil, vinegar, and a bunch of even stranger things. I'm dubious.
Have any of you successfully treated a case of nail fungus with home remedies? If so, what did you use?
ETA: She has really sensitive skin--will tea tree oil burn like fire?
For example, my mum says "rho-DOH-DEN-DRON" for rhododendron, she mixes up words so she ends up with stuff like "Sly Sylvestone" instead of Sylvester Stallone. My grandfather says "fill-um" for film and "can-OH-py" for canopy.
I think it's amusing and cute :) And they make for great in-jokes.
Also, if I try importing an mp3 file into Windows Movie Maker, it won't let me. I'm thinking these two annoyances are connected.
Has anyone else had either of these problems, and did you manage to fix them?
I've tried reinstalling Media Player and the only codec packs I can find by googling are those evil looking K-Lite packs which just make me feel way too paranoid. :x
Thanks in advance

3. my school sent out an email saying that the dress code for the career fair is 'work casual' and gave this as a description for the women's choices (see under the cut). i don't have anything close to what it's asking for, but based on the themes outlined here, could i get away with a nice pair of brown pants (they're dressy, i've worn them to elementary schools for observations) and a collared, 3/4-sleeve, wraparound blouse? (it ties at the side)

Aforementioned fiance often is gone 12pm-1am due to work. I am out of food and living off of Trix.

Lo and behold, the magical series of tubes that is the internets has gone to the next level! It is now possible to physically strangle/stab/open up a good old fashioned can of whup-ass upon your fellow denizens of the virtual world. Senders of spam, trolls of all kinds, and people who ooze stupid like a hagfish oozes its fibrous slime are all now brought to reckoning with your fists of great justice. You are free to rip that caps lock button right off their very keyboard and plant it firmly in their left eye socket (or wherever else you may prefer).

i adore freshly vacuumed floors but don't really enjoying carving out time some time to do it. plus my floors are beige so they could always use a good vacuum, and it would be great if i could run to class or whatever and come home to it. do you think it's worth it? would be okay to buy just the roomba and not a regular vacuum (my apartment sort of has a communal one downstairs i could always steal)?
should i get a roomba?
okay that's all.
