With which TV character do you identify most?

Does anybody know how to become a secret shopper? It's so hard to find information on the internet because there are so many scams.
If you watch Friday Night Standup, who is/are your favorite comedian(s)?
I love Megan Mooney and Maria Bamford, I always watch them even though it's repeats.
I need to download a program called RoboHelp in order to do a homework assignment for my Technical Writing class. I've never used it before, so I just downloaded a trial 30-day version from Adobe.com.
Everything downloaded fine, but now that I'm trying to install the program, it asks for a "User Name," "Company Name," and "Product Key." Where the heck do I find that information?
The Adobe Live Chat isn't available on weekends, so I'm SOL until tomorrow afternoon. I've emailed their support, but as they're closed on weekends the soonest I could get a response by is tomorrow, if they aren't busy. I'm really hoping someone here can help me out, as this is due on Wednesday.
Edit: I found this on the Support Page:
You will only be prompted to enter a product key/serial number for a trial version if the trial has previously been installed on that computer and the trial period has expired. In this case you will not be able to install another copy of this trial onto the same computer to try the software again.
That's completely insane, because I just bought this laptop two months ago from Future Shop, so there's no way RoboHelp has been installed on this computer before!
Do you think it's acceptable to call off a search and rescue for a five year old child?
We have a search and rescue going on at work right now, the boy has been missing since 2pm yesterday (so, twelve hours now). He's somewhere in the woods, his two companions (and dog) were found earlier. They're talking about calling off SAR until daylight. Personally, I think they should keep looking until they find him.. I don't mind when my tax dollars are being spent for something like this. Possible legal aspects aside, is it okay to say "hey, we'll start looking again later?"
How much would you estimate it would cost me to drive round trip from Columbia City IN to Utica NY ? (gas/tolls/whatever)

I ask for all three.
If you were to google your first name in images, what is the first thing to pop up?

edit: Forgot this one at first. Do you know of any chain stores that carry somewhat inexpensive bras in larger sizes? I can't afford to spend $50 on a bra, but the ones I have are starting to wear out and I really need some new ones.
What scent do you have going on in your car? Did you pick it out from Autozone or Target, or did someone spill something in your car and you can't get rid of the smell?

If you did something horrible to someone (like cheating on them), would you/have you done it again, after feeling like shit about it and apologizing profusely and knowing that it was totally wrong of you (though that is just one example)?
I ate a whole lot of shitty food this weekend (but it was worth it). Do you know any good way to "detox" my body and cleanse my system, without, like, laxatives or lemonade and cayenne pepper or something?
Do you think homeless people are homeless by choice?
Why do people on livejournal find it necessary to use theories base solely on ideology as facts to debate their stance? You can either agree or disagree with the an idea or principle.. I don't believe there's room to make is anything more than an opinion.
For a project I'm working on, I want to cut out simple, flat objects which I will paint, mount on sticks and use as puppets. They will have the same structure as shadow puppets, except I won't be using them to make shadows.
I was wondering if anyone could suggest some sort of lightweight but durable material that I could easily make them from? As mentioned above, I need to be able to cut them out and paint on them.
Thanks a lot! This club is awesome!
Edit: Sorry, I should have mentioned that I actually already thought of cardboard and was hoping for some other suggestions of something that might possibly be a little stronger? :)

If you just came home from the vet with a cat that has tapeworms, would you lock them out of the house so you can wash the bedding or would you let the cat inside the house? It is an indoor/outdoor cat and just received a shot for the worms, along with a rabies shot and distemper shot.

For those of you who have attended college...
Did you live on campus or commute?
Or perhaps both? (lived on campus for a period of time and for another period of time commuted)
I'm a sophomore now and I've lived on campus for the past 2 years but I'm considering moving back home for my last 2. I don't really go out and party or anything because I'm either working or doing schoolwork (or sleeping a lot) and my student loans are piling up nicely, so living at home for 2 years will save me close to $10,000. I live about 45 minutes away from school so it isn't THAT bad of a drive, just kind of sucks during rush hour. Anyone have any experiences to share?
I need a really good April Fool's prank to pull on a teacher I work with.
Have any ideas, TQC?
Is there a name for constant burping?
Are you worn out today?
Does anyone know what the general penalty is for a hit and run?
My sister and her friend were driving along last night when this asshole comes barreling up behind them, switches lanes to pass, and when s/he went to get back over, s/he wasn't paying attention and side swiped my sister's car. She's got a small Cavalier and whoever it was had a big Ford F150. The person started to slow down when she pulled over, but then they sped off. They managed to get the plate number and called the cops.
A cop came out and took their statements and filed the report. He's supposed to call her today to let her know if they found the person yet.
I'm having an argument with a friend about this...are there drug sniffing dogs at all airports in the US?
**edit - I should say are there drug sniffing dogs at airports? i know they don't have them at *every* airport. how many do you think have them?
Do you think I can get a Master's Degree thesis written in two weeks?
I'm moving from New York to Baltimore, MD in the beginning of April. I'm unsure of the exact date but it should be within the first two weeks of April. Right now, I'm currently looking for a place to live but more importantly a place to work. I'm a little confused as to how I should go about this job hunt. I'm not looking for a career, per se, as the job I would be going after would probably be waitressing, bartending, retail or some type of office work. Should I contact employers immediately and explain my situation or should I wait until closer to my move date? I'm unable to go to Maryland prior to my move date so I'm unable to set up an interview earlier.
Does anybody live in Baltimore City, MD? What's your opinion on the area? Any advice for a newcomer?
Where would I go to find out the drama behind a specific user? (I used both my googlepowers and ljseek.)
You're the designated driver. You had one drink. In the entrance of the club you went to there is a coin operated breathalyser test. It comes out to 0.09. Do you (you specifically) drive?
How would you take it if someone you were friends with repeatedly told you "you'd make a great little brother/sister"?
I personally find it fairly aggravating as it implies that I'm not being considered an equal.
1a. Have you ever noticed that a lot of popularly termed "Anti-Social" activities require you to be social in at least a slight sense?
1b. Are you a participant any Social Anti-Social activities? Examples: LARP, SCA, Gaming (D&D, tabletop, card, &c), et al.?
(EDIT: I'm specifically referencing the narrowmindedness that is aimed at activities like that, and perhaps I have a bias there because I live in Butthump, Tennessee where activities of this nature get you a good, old-fashioned, "Y'all need to quit that there silly crap and get out and make some real friends *starts picking a banjo and spittin' chaw* Now git!")
2. What activities or behaviors do you have that you would definitely consider anti-social?
excuse my randomness.
1. can you read lips?
2. tell me something spiffy about where you live, work, go to school at?
3. do you spell it gray or grey?
4. who was the last person you assumed something about? were you right?
For those of you with ADD, what do you do to manage the stress that comes with feeling overwhelmed by things you need to do that you're having problems getting done?
I should not have taken 19 credits this semester. I'm behind in some things, and everything is just piling up, but everything needs to be done either this week or next. I just don't know how to deal with it all.
I have just received tons of tea and I am not a big tea drinker. I usually only drink it when I am sick so I am no mood to make it taste really good. But now I am willing to try them all! How should I make my tea? What should I add? Honey? Milk? Sugar? How much? That sort of thing. Thank you.
I am a girl. I want to start jogging. But I have a pretty big chest (C or D cup) that makes running uncomfortable. I've bought/tried two different sports bras, but neither do the trick. So far, the only thing that works is using two or three bras at a time... which is pretty uncomfortable.
Any tips on shops to check, brands to try?
so, last week i got a veggie burger from the cafe at my work. i've never had one before, so i was weary. to my surprise it was really good, so i bought some from the store for this week's lunch. but the ones i got weren't quite the same. i got the gardenburger brand original veggie burger, and it's mostly rice and very little veggies (the one i had last week had huge bits of corn and black beans, and tasted like a big falafel ball).
anyway, can anyone suggest a brand/kind that's really good?
I want to exercise, but I don't want to lose my boobs. I love my boob size, and I've been that size for awhile, even through weight gain, but I'm afraid my cup size'll go down if i start exercising enough to lose weight everywhere else.
And I mean.. I'm not that upset with how I look..
Has anyone here actually quit talking to their parents? I mean for reasons other than abuse when you were younger.
What do you think about breast implants?
Would you get them?
What do you think of girls who do?
My neighbour's child has Autism. I constantly hear him repeating things over and over again.
Lately, I've been thinking it would be brilliant to pay the child to play with my birds and repeat specific things over and over again to teach them new words. I'd pay him about $5 an hour and for a 6 year old, I'm sure this would be great.
However, it is probably considered rude to be taking advantage of a child's disorder like that.
What do you think? Should I offer the idea to the parents? Is it too rude? What's a good way to bring it up?
Bad idea, I get it. It really just was a silly idea that I had only began to consider seriously recently. I didn't mean to be offensive, honest. I'll just let the neighbour teach my bird whistles from next door like he's already doing. :)
Do you find it offensive when someone says they will pray for you? I was reading an interesting discussion on a message board. Many of the posters were saying yes, they find it very offensive when someone says they will pray for them, without their permission. What is your view on this? Do you only find it offensive if a person says they are praying for you because they feel you are “lost” (i.e. pray that you find Jesus, or I suppose anything else along those lines)? Is it ok if someone says they are praying for your health and happiness? Or is it offensive no matter what? A lot of people on the boards I was reading seemed to feel it was offensive regardless! I’m interested in your opinion if you are deeply religious, atheist, or anywhere in between!
Just wondering about something similar I saw on Ricki Lake..i'm having a sick day.
Anna & Ben are married, they have a daughter Chloe.
Anna's sister Delia has an affair with Ben and has a daughter Evie.
I suppose Chloe and Evie are half sisters, but also cousins? Is there a name for this type of relationship? How much DNA do they share?
Identical twins Amelia and Ava marry Identical twins Bobby & Billy
and concieve and give birth on exactly the same day to sons.
I'm guessing these boys would look like they were twins too? Are they still just cousins? How much DNA would they share?
I'm confusing myself, I hope this all makes sense.

I had my wisdom teeth pulled out a week and a half ago and when I went to my check up on Friday, the doctor gave me a plastic syringe with a curved end so I could flush out any food that got stuck in the holes from the surgery. I left that syringe at home and I'm in my dorm at school and think I have some food stuck in there. Do they sell the syringes at the local pharmacy? Any other methods to make sure I don't get anything stuck in there? Thanks in advance.
I bought a dresser at a garage sale aver a year ago. I've never really had any reason to use the bottom drawer, so I never did. I opened it today and there was a piece of purple lanjure(I must be way off the spelling here, womans sleepwear) in there.
What should I do with it :-D
So what do you think of people that say they are multiples? Is this true or mental illness?

If you've seen the movie Amadeus, and know Mozart's music, you may be able to help me.
In the scene when Salieri hear's Mozart's music for the first time, and he's saying, "The first part, simple - almost comic. Just a pulse. And then. . high above it. An oboe. Hanging there, unwavering. . . " And they're playing the music along with his monologue.
What song is that? I love it, and I want to listen to it all the time.
Thanks in advance!

What is the best way to affix a twelve inch latex balloon (which just happens to be completely covered in duct tape) filled with at least six pounds of flour to one's abdomen?
I happen to have just such a balloon, and I need to temporarily attach it to myself (15 minutes, max.) as part of a costume for an acting class. I've tried plastic wrap, which does work, but it becomes dreadfully uncomfortable and humid rather quickly. You got any better ideas?
My hubby and I just moved into a new house. In the move we put a vinyl shower curtain (that we really like) in a box. It is now a wrinkled mess! Is there anyway to get wrinkles out of vinyl shower curtains? Thank you in advance!

Yes I love it :P
Do you know all the flavors of sherbet, or do you just associate the color of it with the taste?

Orange, or green. Yum.
