Pimple Problem

For those of you who get skin zits, what do you do?  Do you buy any extra products (if so, which), wait for it to clear up on its own, smear toothpaste on it, go to the dermatologist?   What?

I had this one pimple for the longest time, kept the area clean, and it was there for a week before I popped it, and obviously it got worse and now I got them running down my temple to my jawline.   It hasn't been going away so I'm looking for advice before I head off to the doctor or spend any money on this.

I'm going to bed earlier than I usually do, so why do I feel so much more tired than I usually do?

Do you start to feel heavy when you get really sleepy?
When my hands start feeling heavy, I know I'm usually not far from passing out :\

Death becomes you

They've revised the death penalty. There's only one type that's allowed now throughout the world. What should the universal capital punishment method be?

Lethal injection
Electric chair
Gas chamber
Dipped in honey and lowered into a cage full of starving wolverines
EXTREME caning (moreso than it normally is)
Firing squad
Walking the plank (over water that's been properly littered with chum)
Drowning (or they give you the witch test. You get to not drown...if you're a witch)
Repeat poking with a pointy stick until a ...pointy stick tip-sized hole appears
Sexual exhaustion (your choice from among 10 burly prison guards)
Old age (or no death penalty)
Forcefed grain until your stomach bursts (then they harvest your liver and serve it as premium foie gras)

You're on death row! Oh Noez! By what version of death do you leave this mortal plain?

Firing squad
Plank-walking (over shark infested water)
Electric chair
Lethal injection
Gas chamber
Stoning (not the good kind)
You're forced to run with the bulls...with your ankles shacked just 6 inches apart
Sucker punch Mike Tyson in the chin and tell him you banged his mom last night like a set of bongos
Being eaten by Cannibals
Forced to go down on Paris Hilton (you're bound to get some kind of lethal, life-threatening STD)
Jump from a plane with no chute
Buried alive!

Russian roulette. There's a revolver on the table. 6 chambers, but only one bullet. You can't tell which chamber the bullet's in. If you aim the nose of the gun at your temple and pull the trigger, you win $50,000,000 (assuming you didn't find the bullet). Do you agree to play Ruskie roulette?


Yes, that's a scary game! Let's make it a bit more agreeable. On the table are 6 revolvers. That's 36 chambers. There's one bullet in one of them. That's a 35 out of 36 chance you'll succeed, and only a 1 out of 36 chance you'll fail. Again, 50million is offered. Do you play it now?


Maybe it's the idea of guns that's scaring you. Or money isn't enticing enough. How about this. There's 20 grenades on a table. 19 are deactivated and 1 is still live. If you pull one pin out, you get...3 WISHES! Only 5% death from kaboom and a 95% chance you'll get whatever you want. Want to play explodey roulette?


Still a bit scary for some people, eh? Ok, last offer. No death at all. 10 doors. 9 lead to rooms that contain $100k. 1 room leads to a room that contains a bed, viagra and Clint Howard and yes, you have to sleep with him. Will you play Troll Sex Roulette?

1 - I am absolutely crazy to make a podcast. Can anyone who knows a tenny bit about how to record things suggest some inexpensive recording stuff? I use itunes primarily. Is it possible to use itunes for this purpose?

Windows CD player problem :-(

My Windows CD player (You know, Accessories->Entertainment->CD Player) plays CDs, but silently! It's not to do with the volume, which is up. I can listen to CD tracks on Media Player, but I have to select each track separately on that, rather than being able to listen to the whole CD in one go. I downloaded a freeware CD player to see if it would work, but it had the same problem - the CD appears to be playing, but no sound! I have Windows 98SE. Any idea how to remedy my problem?

Thank you!

My work requires that employees use a standard greeting and closing during calls. To ensure quality. And because they hate us.

It's long and awkward and condescending and it sounds horribly scripted and causes customers to hang right the hell up, which wreaks havoc on my stats. And therefore my paycheck.

Should I be a smart ass and not do it (or not do it correctly) or should I STFU and GBTW? What would you do?

rugby icons

I have been looking for rugby icons for a while and it is really starting to drive me crazy because I cannot find any of people actually playing. It seems like most of the 'request' communities are all fandom ones. Yes, I could make them myself but they would just be bases and that is boring. I also googled and I didn't really get anything.

SO, What are some good communities that I can request such icons?
Or what are communities that make rugby icons?

Much thanks in advance!!

airline anxiety!

My boyfriend and I are going to Spokane in June for five days. I'm quite excited, as I haven't flown since 1997, but he's not really excited about the flying thing. He gets super nervous apparently, and he's a smoker, so that doesn't help either. Is there anything that can be done to relieve that anxiety?

And does anyone know what the weather is like in late June? I looked on Wikipedia, but I'm just curious if there's any residents who have a real insight--I need to know what to pack!

Thanks to everyone that gave me ideas for the cheap honeymoons yesterday! We've decided to go to Lake Tahoe.

Anyways, on to my question. Does anyone know where I can get a bunch of cheap thank you cards? I am going to need a lot, anywhere from 50 to 200, and I don't want to spend a lot of money. I've looked at Walmart, the grocery store, and Hallmark, but they are too expensive there. I've looked at Card & Party Factory, and they were pretty cheap, but ugly looking. And I don't want to get them online, I don't want to pay for shipping and I want to actually see them in person, to see how they really look.

So, the doctors have decided to evict my baby and will start preceedings on Sunday (if it matters, I'll be 38weeks 1 day pregnant and I've developed a condition called Obstetric Cholestasis, which is why they're evicting her). Given that my cervix is behaving a bit like a vault door in a bank, this will probably make things a little bit more difficult.

I'm going to buy some red raspberry leaf tea today, as I've been told that can help encourage things along. Unfortunately, I'm not in the position to be having unprotected sex (or sex at all, boo), as I'm single, and the father lives in another state. I will be doing more walking and hip rolling and all the stuff they suggest to help move things along.

I'm thinking i'll start some visualisation meditation things...but the idea of trying to visualise your cervix get the equivelent of a shoulder massage is just a bit silly :)

But what I want is some other ideas, and they don't at all have to be serious :) What do you think I can do to help my cervix relax a bit and dilate to make induction work better?

Poll #955671 You sexy thing, sexy thing you!

Are you male or female


For those who are in a relationship, which of you is more interested in sex, or asks for it more? If you're single, think generally of past relationships.

They are.
I am!
It's pretty even.
I've never had sex but they are/were more physical
I've never had sex but I am/was more physical.

If you're the one who wants/initiates/asks for sex more often, how do you feel about it?

Ultimately negative, either from awkwardness, feeling needy/forceful, or because the other person isn't as interested or is satisfied enough, or other reasons.
Ultimately positive, either due to enjoying the control, not minding having to ask, or because the other person likes it that way, or other reasons.

How often are you currently having sex?

1-2 times a month/less than this
3-4 times a month
1-2 times a week
3-4 times a week
5-7 times a week/more than once a day

Now how often do you WANT it?

1-2 times a month/less than this
3-4 times a month
1-2 times a week
3-4 times a week
5-7 times a week/more than once a day


Are there any colors you dislike?

Why don't you like them?

I don't like orange - it's too bright and obnoxious and almost disgusting. Also, I don't know if this affects my dislike, but our school had a "Blue and Orange Day" in middle school and I was always on the Blue team and the Orange team always won.

What do you guys think about the new compelling evidence that circumcision lowers risk of HIV by up to 60%?

My kid's getting cut, that's for damn sure.

ETA: Condoms aren't always available in small villages in Africa, where the study is being conducted. Check your classist assumptions about sexual education and condoms.

ETA2: "Studies suggest 5.7 million new cases of HIV infection and 3 million deaths over 20 years could be prevented by male circumcision in sub-Saharan Africa, the agencies said."


I'm bored and tired.  So it's question time.

You call a business, ask for the boss and are told yes he's here, hold on and your call is transferred to his line.  However, the boss is in a different office, doesn't hear his phone ringing/know the phone ringing is his and it goes to his voicemail.  Would you leave a message? Call back to the front desk and nicely explain he didn't answer?  Call back and be a bitch to the person answering the phone? Something else?

Here's the deal:

My best friend's band [we'll call them Band A] is playing a local show in two weeks, as the opener. Band B goes on after them, and it just so happens that Band B is a favorite of my ex-boyfriend.
I don't know if the ex is aware they are playing, and I was thinking of letting him know about it, because I know he really really likes them, but I also don't want to be there if he shows up.

So, should I tell the ex his favorite band has a show coming up, and just leave immediately after Band A, or should I just not tell him and take my chances of having to make a quick exit anyway if he shows up?

(By this, I mean you have it and have the father of the bride bring a real shotgun, provided you are in a safe area, to shoot off once or twice in good fun...think Steel Magnolias. And you have a small wedding - vows and all taken seriously with just a few close family and friends and then have a bigger yet still small potluck "reception" with all the fixins of a spring BBQ and a pregnant bride!)

AGH. I AM SO IRRITATED. I cannot wait to move out. Despite one heart attack, a bypass, having carotid artery surgery, and an iliac arterial bypass/graft, plus her WHOLE FAMILY having a horrible history of heart disease, my mom CONTINUES TO SMOKE. I am at my wit's end with this; I have tried everything to get her to quit. Unfortunately I cannot babysit her all throughout the day because I don't get home from work til late at night. Plus she is my damn mother, not my child.. she should know to take care of herself, and gets mad when I try to look out for her. But I already lost my dad :(

It's gotten to the point where if my clothes come out of the dryer and sit in the laundry basket, they reek of cigarette smoke. The worst part? THE LAUNDRY ROOM IS EVEN IN THE BASEMENT. MY MOM DOESN'T EVEN GO DOWN TO THE BASEMENT. I have to literally wash & dry my clothes then IMMEDIATELY put them on and leave the house in order to not smell like smoke. Is there ANYTHING I can do to hide the smell of smoke besides the wash-dry-wear method? I just want to put my clothes in my drawers and not worry about anything :(

my pretty light

i have a lantern i got in morocco. it looks a lot like this - except the bottom is pointy like the top, so it's for hanging.

it has about a 1 inch diameter hole in the top, and is empty inside. no electrical hookups or nothin. i have it hanging from a hook in the ceiling, but i wanna put a lightbulb in it cos it has beautiful lavender glass. herein lies the problem.

i bought an extension cord with a lightbulb attachment at ikea - look at it here. but the lightbulb part is too big to fit through the hole in the top, and so is the end that plugs into the wall. i tried to pull off the lightbulb attachment, but it seems to be attached pretty premanently, as i'm assuming the wires need to be secured to it.

anyone ever had to do this? is there anything i can do? might i be able to find a cord where the lightbulb part pulls off? should i go ask home depot? i want pretty pink light :(

My mother has two dogs Well, technically, one is mine but she stays with my mom during nice weather because I live in an apartment and can't let her sit outside in the sun all day.

My mother also has a neighbor that constantly complains about said dogs, and has called the authorities about it numerous times. They gave us an understandable warning about the dogs not having their collars on, but the neighbor also keeps complaining about the barking and they have threatened to impound the dogs.

Both dogs are up-to-date on everything, registered, and altered. They are clearly not neglected, aggresive, or destructive. They are fenced in at all times, and all the house in the area have big yards [2acres] so they're not insanely close together or anything. The dogs are also only put outside for long periods of time during the daytime.
Yes, they bark at birds and squirrels and strangers, but that is what dogs do, isn't it? They do not bark incessantly, just sporadically throughout the day, but the neighbor seems to think even this is too much.

My question is, can the authorities force us to get rid of our dogs simply because they bark "too much"?

Hello, dearest Question Clubbers. I need some help from you (yes, YOU)!

1) Where could I find fairly reliable statistics on how much violence there is in American prisons every year? Where could I find statistics on how much contraband is siezed from prisoners each year?

2) How about a percentage on the crime recidivism rate in the U.S.?

3) Are there any statistics out there that suggest that rehabilitation programs might be more successful in controlling crime than incarceration?

I would appreciate any guiance you could offer. I know that Google is my friend and I did try to search on my own but I kept coming up with people's opinions or statements of statistics that didn't seem to have any factual basis.

I've always heard that kids with less activity are more likely to get in trouble.

Do you think kids who spend all their time inside playing video games are less likely to get themselves into gangs or get in a lot of trouble than a kid without video games who has to go out and find fun(possibly leading to getting in with the wrong crowd)?

1.  Have any of you ever stopped being attracted to someone that you otherwise love?
  I am having a hard time with this one.  I love my SO of 3 years, but I am just not attracted to him anymore.  I cringe whenever he tries to kiss me and I try to avoid having sex with him as much as possible.  I know this isn't normal, but I'm having a hard time deciding what to do.

2.  What were your great-grandparent's names? (which ever ones you  know)
       Daisy Ruth Revell, Darvin McDonald Myers,  Trellion Oswell McKenzie.  Can't remember the others right now.

2b.  Do you know any interesting facts about any of them?

Could anybody tell me what aftercare would be given to a woman who had just suffered a misscarriage at 10 weeks? Would the hospital do a scan & offer therapy?
& what sort of pain would she be in/how long would it last?

I have googled this but it's mostly facts and I don't know how reliable they are/if this applies to everyone. I'd appreciate some first hand knowledge of someone who knows a bit more about it.

My friend has unfortunately gone through this and won't talk about it. Obviously that's her perogative but i'd like to be informed so that if she ever does want to talk about it then i'll already know a bit about the clinical side of things.

Thanks :-)

Sex change doesn't end alimony.

Inspired by this article.

1. If a person gets a sex change operation do you think they should still get alimony from their ex?

2. If a person gets a sex change operation do you think they should still have to pay alimony to their ex?

3. "in the eyes of the law, nothing changed significantly enough" Do you consider a sex change to be a significant change?

4. Should the law be forced to recognized a sex change as a "significant change"?

Does anyone get mail from Books-a-Million?  My mom mentioned over the phone that if you were to go to a Books-a-Million store before midnight on July 20th, you could reserve the new Harry Potter book for something like 50% cheaper and you could get a reading light as a free gift.  She said she saw this on a postcard, but she threw it out.  I tried to find this online, but I couldn't find it on their website.  Does anyone happen to know if this is for all stores? 

Can you get Lindt chocolates in stores like Wal-Mart or Target?  My clarinet teacher gave me a really good Lindt chocolate bar for my birthday, and I want to get another one!!

So I want to dye my hair but I cant decide what color to dye it.
My hair is naturally really dark but I dye it black. I really want to dye it a color thats going to stand out.
I've narrowed it down to 4 colors

hot pink

I'm on a DVD rampage

what DVDs should I buy? Recommend away!

I love animation, documentaries and fantasy, but anything goes if it's good enough :)
I need to be reminded of classics that I haven't seen yet too.


i have a bunch of mirrors and i have this girl who'd like to buy them. they're 6 feet tall and 8 inches wide. they're also pretty thick and have holes at the top and bottom to hang them up.

how much should i charge her? she wants three

are there different qualities of mirrors? the ones at walmart and/or canadian tire all range in prices because they all come framed. the ones at ikea are always petty inexpensive, i assume its because they're usually thin. mine are thick and not framed. does this make a difference?

have you bought mirrors before? how much did you pay? what size were they?

do you wanna see pictures?

should i charge for delivery? [30 minute ride] bubble wrap for transport? am i pushing it?

If you were to rate the overall attractiveness of the people you hang out with on a scale of 1-10, what would it be?
Probably about 9 o.O
I was hanging out with a whole mess of people the other day and I suddenly realized that I have a lot of very good looking friends. I usually don't pay attention to how they look, so I guess I just never noticed it before.

When you're drawing a person making some sort of expression, do you tend to make the same expression?
I notice myself doing this all the time, I find it pretty amusing, depending on what face the person is making.

Awkward Scenario

1. Let's say that you are in my situation:

You have a friend who has broke off contact from you since about a year and a half ago, over an issue. For the whole of that year you tried to explain things to her, but she ignored you completely. So about a few months back you gave up and stopped contacting her.

Recently a mutual friend has organised a gathering between you, the girl, and two other friends. He's going off to study overseas and he wants to meet up for the last time before heading off. You really want to go, but the fact that the girl will be there is bothering you. Should you not go? Go but ignore the girl (it's a small gathering, so that would be hard)? Go and make one final attempt to make things up between her and you? Bearing in mind that you tried for one year to make amends but she didn't give a damn at all.

2. Are you excited about Spiderman 3?

Quest for beads

Can anyone refer me to a website to buy those little round glass beads that commonly show up in boardgames as little markers? You can buy them in bulk at craft stores.

I need a site that will let me purchase a variety of colors, specifically ORANGE.

And what specifically are they called? Gem beads? Round beads? flat beads?

Any help is appreciated.

Camera questions.

I own a Canon PowerShot A610 digital camera. It broke slightly not to long ago(not any big damage)and now after I got it back every time I turn it on it says "Card Locked!". And it will not let me take a picture. I looked all over the menu to look for a option to unlock the card but I haven't had any luck. What the hell do I do?!

1)Is it possible for Mike Patton to be involved in bad music?
2)What new trick should I teach my dog? I think he's bored with the ones he knows already. He knows: sit, stay, lay down, turn around, roll over, shake, high five, and I have trained him to wear sunglasses. I tried to teach him to hold the treats on his nose but his nose is too little.
3)For those who said they have done a striptease, what song did you strip to? Or did you do it without music?
4)What are some of your bodily flaws that you hate?

Ticketmaster + ticketing

Okay, so about a month and a half ago I ordered a ticket for a concert through Ticketmaster. Usually they send me an e-mail a couple of days later saying that my tickets have been printed and then I get them a few days after that. This time, though, I haven't received any e-mail confirmation nor have I received my tickets. Me being the genius that I am got the idea tonight to actually log into my Ticketmaster account and see what was up, and I see this message:

"Your tickets have been printed.
Your tickets were shipped via standard USPS mail. Items shipped in this way will arrive at least 48 hours prior to the event."

There's no way to tell when the message appeared.

It also says on the Ticketmaster website that "in almost all cases replacement tickets will not be issued for general admission seating or for tickets purchased using cash at a Retail Location."

1) My tickets are general admission, but that's the only seating available. Am I still shit out of luck here?
2) Is it likely that the ticket will still come in the mail, or should I give it a shot and call? The concert isn't until May 7.
3) Another show I want to go to goes on sale on Friday - should I try online ordering again or should I just go to the box office?
4) Is it cheaper just to go to the venue and buy a ticket? Paying $10.95 of additional charges on a $16 ticket is getting a bit tiring.

I have a linksys router. This is my 3rd one now. The first one held out for a while, then after a year or two, it started randomly disconnecting me. A firmware upgrade temporarily fixed this, but then it started again, and I just got a new one.

The second one died under similar circumstances in a similar time frame.

Now im on my third and I think the same is happening and that I didn't just have a fluke.

Has anyone else had this problem with linksys routers?
Should I write a complaint letter?
Should I write the better business bureau if they ignore my letter?

1. Does anyone happen to know where to get batteries for a digital camera (HP Photosmart R707), without having to order them? I checked Staples (where I bought it), Best Buy, Radio Shack, and Camera Cameron (local place); they all either don't carry batteries for this particular camera or they'd have to order it. ;[

2. How competitive are you, if at all?
Not at all. I'd rather let other people win.

3. What is one thing you cannot sleep without, no matter how tired you are?
I can't fall asleep without the TV on. If it goes off, I wake up. I also can't sleep without some sort of illumination because I'm scared of the dark, lulz.
