Ipod Tech Question

Does anyone know how to recover songs that might have been lost while updating files on an Ipod?

I was attempting to upload a new audiobook to my Ipod/Itunes library and deleted some of the "Smart Playlists" while doing so. When I went to play the songs that were in the library before hand, it said something to the effect of "songs cannot be played because the original source cannot be found." All of the songs still show up in the library, but I cannot find anything else about them or why they aren't working.

The Itunes website isn't very clear, can anyone help me out here?

Q: What is something that smells good to you, which might sound odd to other people?

This is so ridiculous.


Let's saying you were being burned alive (at a stake...I'm watching Elizabeth)

Would you die first of asphyxiation of the smoke, would you go into shock, or would you be fully conscious at the flames consumed you?

Because that would suck.
Fatal Curiosity II

First post. :3

I tend to think a little too much, so I cooked up this weird little question. It boggled me for a while, so I decided to show it to the interwebs and see what they had to say about it.

Ok, I'm pretty sure that we all know that shopping at Hot Topic brings some sort of horrid shame upon a person, right? It's kind of hard to have regular access to a computer and not have heard someone going off about that.

I'm also pretty sure that it is mutually agreed that thrift stores are just fine, and possibly even cool in some circles, am I right?

So, here's the question:

What if someone bought something at a thrift store that the previous owner had bought at Hot Topic?

I'll just start us off by saying that I have no real opinion on this. As long as it fits, has a neat pattern or design on it, and I have the money to buy it upon encountering it, I'll buy clothing from pretty much anywhere that sells it.

I expect entertaining answers to this one. XD

Is there a chance my brother got me sick?
Please say no, please say no... Nevermind that. He definitely did, the jerk.

I know I'm going to throw up at some point tonight. The way my stomach feels, I just know. Do you know beforehand when you're going to throw up? What do you do to prepare/feel better?

I'm afraid of throwing up with my tongue ring in and losing it/having it get really disgusting. I've had my tongue pierced for almost a year, will it close up if I take it out for the night?

how pissed would you be?

ok, so i'm pretty pissed about this, but i'm PMSing, so i can't tell if i'm overreacting. SO, how pissed would you be if the following happened to you?

friday night i went out with two friends, sam and steph. while walking home with sam, she informs me that she and steph are going out to lunch the next afternoon with their two boyfriends and asks me if i want to come. i said "are you sure? i don't want to do the 5th wheel thing, it's ok if you want to keep it the two couples." sam says "no, no, come along, it'll be fun." so i say "ok, well, call or text me tomorrow to let me know what's up." and she says "ok, we're thinking of going at around 1 or 2." (you can see where this is leading)

so, fast forward to this morning, i'm hanging out in the living room, several of my flatmates ask me if i want to do things, i decline, saying i'm going out to lunch with my friends. well, needless to say i didn't get a text from her until 2:45 which read "so sorry i didnt text you. we just ended up heading over at (sic) the restaurant without planning. i thought of u (sic) though. steph and i agreed that we love you. hope your day is going well."

my response to this is A. um, you 'love' me? don't ever patronize me like that again B. if you're rushing off to some place, you text me on the way there, you don't text me after the fact. so, i'm pretty pissed because she was really rude not to text me and my day was basically wasted till 5, until my other friends came back home.

soooo, TQC, how mad would you be in my situation?

Utah and alcohol

Does Utah have some odd laws about alcohol?

I got into an argument with a classmate about this. I thought they had weird laws- alcohol is taxed or prohibited or not sold in certain areas. I also guessed that this was because of the Mormon influence in that state.

How are their laws different than most other states?

adoption abroad

With all the talk of children and adoption lately, I've decided to ask the community this series of questions:

1) Are any of you Americans living abroad with the military?
2) Have any of you considered adoption, especially of foster children or while living abroad?
and most importantly:
3) Have any of you successfully adopted (or looked into adopting) from the US Foster Program while living abroad?

My husband and I want to adopt, but we always planned on adopting foster children from our home state (North Carolina). Now that we've been stationed in Germany, we think it's the perfect time to start the family, but I am not really interested in international adoptions, and I've heard that there may be a lot of issues involved with any given State's regulations on allowing children to be adopted in this situation. We are consulting with a social worker, but we've been told repeatedly to do research online and ask for advice from others whenever possible, so any input related to adopting in general is appreciated and can even be sent to my private email if you'd prefer.

Why is it that people shave off all of their body hair? I mean, half the girls I went to high school with got full body wax jobs and got grossed out if they found out somebody didn't shave their body bare. I can understand keeping things trim and tidy, but no hair at all? Why?

Also, manscaping: bad or good?
My boyfriend shaved his chest hair off once and it made me very sad :( He hasn't done it since, thank god, but the whole idea of a hairless body just weirds me out. Especially on guys. When I think of a man, I think of them being all manly-men, like muscles and chest hair and such. Little boys don't have bodies like that, because they're little boys. Men should be hairy, but not too hairy. Somewhere in the middle is nice.

So my sisters school is having their annual basket auction. You know, the type of thing where each basket has a theme, and in front are little bags where you put a ticket in to win it?

Last year my baskets theme was this:
"A Spa in your own bathroom" and I laid purple washcloths down on the bottom of the basket, I had a purple bottle of bubble bath that was disguised to look like a champagne bottle (it came that way) I had a bunch of purple soaps and massage oils in there as well, and some other purple stuff that fit with the theme. (Plus, all this stuff was from like Target and the dollar store so it cost almost nothing)

So this year I need a theme. But my mental well has run dry. So, what can I use for my theme? I need something really good and creative, not something a million other people will have.

Any suggestions?

Someone mentioned BYU a few posts back and it got me thinking about the piece in the Science Times some time back regarding American Indians and DNA. Basically, the tests said the American Indians have no Israeli/Arab/Something DNA and therefor they aren't the lost tribs of Israel which, according to this article, debunks Mormonism.

So, I asked a Mormon friend about this and he said that Satan made the test come out the way it did. Which sounds like something Sami would do on Days of Our Lives, but OK.

So, what do you think? Do you think the tests debunk Mormonism?

If you are religious, do you think religions like Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses and other groups are legit religions or do you think they are something else, like cults?

Can any religion be legit or false in your eyes?

My opinon is that all religions are legit as long as people follow them. Legit not in the sense that they are the end all and be all of the truth, but only that people's belief in them make them legit in the eyes of the people that follow that religion. Does that even make sense? I can't wait until my cough clears up and I don't have to take this trippy green codeine stuff anymore and I can make sense again.

Homemade Ant Trap

Help. A few days ago, ants descended on my kitchen. I live in the boonies and won't be able to get to any commercial ant traps for a few days. I tried looking up DIY ant traps, but they all need things I don't have, like borax or yeast or molasses. I tried leaving tape out sticky side up, but it wasn't sticky enough to catch them. I'm going to try a water/vinegar spray next, but more ideas would be awesome. (The only thing that's worked so far is sambuca, which seems to attract and then kill them. But I'd rather not have a kitchen reeking of pricey liquorice, so...)

1) Do you know of any ant trap recipes that don't require a lot of stuff?

2) What kind of commercial ant trap should I buy when get the chance?

Aprox. what year is the car shown, make, and where the heck can I find one? Presumably I can just hop on over to a car dealer and they'll have one, but as I know nothing about this car (or cars in general), are they very abundant, hard to find, or what?

This is probably a stretch, but thanks for any help provided.

if you have a stomach ache or are sick, where do you usually like to sleep? the couch? your bed? somewhere else?

it may sound weird, but usually I tend to sleep on the bathroom floor (mind you, this is only when I have a stomache ache; otherwise, my bed is the place to be).

Clock changin'

Americans: Do you like the earlier daylight savings time this year? (...or is it an earlier ending of daylight savings? I have no idea when it's called what)

I like it. I get seasonal depression so if I can enjoy the feeling of having "more" sunlight a month early, yay.

What kind of protein rich foods are there for picky eaters?

I'm a vegetarian and I don't like nuts, I'm starting to get used to beans, and I eat tofu and soy stuff whenever I can. But I don't think I'm eating healthy enough...

1. have you ever felt so betrayed by a close friend that you couldn't stand to be near them anymore? did you completely bitch at them or did you just gradually stop associating with them? how did they respond (did they try to earn back your trust or were they angry with you)?

2. have you ever come to realize that you cant stand any of your friends or acquaintances? what did you do about it?

3. does anyone live or has anyone previously lived in san antonio, texas? is it extremely hot and humid in the summer?

Burn in hell!

Remember that damned Beanie Babies spoogefest?

How old were you?

Did you know anybody who was one of the Crazies?

My mom was a Crazy. That's right. She'd hand me the 5 dollars so I could get a 2nd Beanie Baby because it was one per customer. And we had 2 collections. The crappy but much loved play collection, and the do-not-touch-this-will-be-worth-money collection. (Edit: I was 9-ish at the time)


I still love her. I think.

1. Are you participating in read_hp?

2. What's the most effective(for dry skin) hand lotion you've ever used?

3. What toothpaste do you use?

4. How many times per day do you brush your teeth?

5. What's the longest you've ever gone without sleep? Was it because of anything in particular, or just insomnia? How long did you sleep for when you finally crashed?

I've been moving into a new place (YAY) and haven't been able to attack this community as much as I'd like to. :(

But now that's nearing its end and my computer is up and online for good (until I move again :D )

Now for some questions!

1) Do you notice typos/spelling errors often?

2) What are your neighbors like?

3) When was the last time you moved, and how far from your previous living place is it?

4) If you have a landlord, how do you like them/ don't like them?

Now, here is a "help me please" question..

I use the GIMP program (thanks guys!) and I was wondering if there was a way to make animated icons or just do animations at all? That would be nice..

Also, what is a good program to do animations? I am leaning toward a Flash program and trying to find one less than the huge $800 price. I just wanted to see what your opinions on the subject are.

Thanks guys!

Have you ever skipped anything (class, work, etc) to have sex? Was it worth it?

Ladies: have you ever bruised your cervix? How could you tell if it was bruised or if it was something else?

What do you find appropriate for a funeral in March? Is it usually traditional formal black clothing, or is it okay to wear something a little less formal, as long as you don't get into bright colors?

Personal opinions/experience?

I'm going to be grilling up some chicken skewers and am tired of the usual teriyaki marinade. I'd get those packets from the grocery store, but I'm only grilling for one (me) and those things make so much and I end up having to toss most of it.
What are some good (and easy) marinades?

And why do my rice noodles taste slightly soapy? Every time I make them, too, they have a slight soapy aftertaste. I rinse my pots out really well, even wipe them down with a splash of vinegar (my mom used to do that with these pots when I was younger, so I just do it out of habit, I guess).

What is your favorite meal-for-1 to make? I've been making Thai noodles with peanut sauce and chicken for the last week. I think I need a change.

When I lost weight a few years ago, my shoe size dropped. I used to wear an 8 or 8 1/2, now I can wear a 7 comfortably.

I just tried on my 8 1/2 dance sneakers (dansneakers) and I'm absolutely swimming in them. I'm afraid to move in them.

I used to dance in high school, but now I just dance for fun. I'd love to get back into it at some point, or even just work with some of my friends who dance. It's a great workout, I lost a lot of weight when I was doing it.

Should I make an investment in some new shoes?

I'm looking at these in white. I've got the hightop dansneakers right now.

I keep getting beauty marks on my face...and it's annoying the shit outta me. My mom says I'm getting them cause I'm being exposed to the sun. But...I haven't even been going out lately...and when I do go out, it's usually at night. Help! How can I prevent them from appearing on my face even more ? ...oh and the more I count those marks, the more I get them. KILL ME.

old nick shows

My friend and I were discussing old Nickolodean shows today and I really want to figure out what this shows is. All I remember is some girl sitting in school with her head down on her desk and she like left her body and went somewhere else. I dont really remember it that well. The only other thing I remember was the teacher trying to wake her up and she had to like come back to her body from somewhere else or something. Does anyone else know what Im talking about?
