Question (obviously).

One of my younger mates recently got his P's (drivers permit). The last few months he's developed this thing where he has to go to sleep in his bed after a night of drinking. I used to pay for a taxi as I didn't want him walking home for over an hour at 3am on a deserted, pitch black highway.

Well, now that he has his license he's apparently been driving home drunk. The drive is a good 15 minutes on a pitch black, near deserted highway with a lot of twists & turns. He now either lies to me, or waits until I'm distracted or asleep before he drives home because he knows I'll pretty much tackle him to the ground before I'll let him in the car.

If this keeps going on, would you recommend me telling his mother? I go to the gym with her most days & I'm really getting scared that he'll crash at 3am with no one to find him for hours.

I love the guy to death & want to keep him safe, but I know our relationship would never be the same if I did something like 'dob him in' to his mum.

Edit: I'll take his keys off of him & tell my mates to when I'm not there (which I didn't think of, seeing as I'm an idiot). And if he still gets his hands on the keys, call the cops. I think getting pulled up by the cops for drink driving is a lot worse then me telling her. Plus, I stay out of the middle of the situation.

Recently, TX Rep. Warren Chisum is pushing a law to the house requiring the bible to be used as a textbook in all public schools in Texas, and a requirement for all public shools to offer a biblical scholarship course.

"We're not going to preach the Bible, we're going to teach the Bible and how it affects all of our writings, documents and the formation of our government," said Chisum. "We're taking it as a document that has historical value. It's the most widely distributed book in the world."

My question to you all is, can the bible be used as a neutral textbook, or do you think that this is a thinly veiled attempt to combine church and state?

My answer: I'm thinking the latter, because although I do agree that the bible has affected literature throughout the ages, almost every single person in Texas is a Christian! It's a very large challenge to teach an academic course without personal bias, it's going to be next to impossible to teach a bible course without one's own religious views coming into play!

Does anyone know?

Does anyone know the name of the ancient practice where a woman gives herself up completely in devotion to a man, and takes him as her master? It's a form of slavery and I recall the term not being in English, of course.

I know they kind of touch upon this in "The Secretary".

In my sociology class the prof. was going over marriage and religion, especially polygamy.  We watched this video on polygamy in the United States, where they would show both sides of polygamous marriages.  One of the things that got me was the fact that one of the men in those marriages said "Can you really trust your husband?..." And goes on about how he has multiple wives, and they can trust him because all his wives ... in more realistic terms, know who he's screwing, instead of being in a monogamous relationship where the wife doesn't know who he's sleeping with.  And, the women didn't look happy (even in the good examples of polygamous families), and many other women were saying that it was dehumanizing to hear their husband having sex with someone else, etc.  They had good and bad examples of polygamy (showing abusive and incestuous polygamous marriages in the US, and more successful polygamous marriages).  But even with the more successful ones, it just seemed to me that they weren't completely happy.  Overall, the whole video really irritated me...

Also--the women said that they had to put their selfishness aside--selfishness, meaning jealousy of other wives, which I thought was a bit disturbing

So to the questions:

1) Have you been in a polygamous relationship/marriage/etc
2) Has anyone grown up with a polygamous marriage?

..(for 1 and 2 I'm assuming not many, lol...)

3) What's your take on polygamous marriages in general?
4) Would you agree or disagree that you "can't trust your husband 100% to not cheat"/Do you agree or disagree that women's jealousy, even in a polygamous marriage, is considered selfish?

Do I need written permission?

I have a cable access show and we're in the process of putting the first show together.
I'm the host of the show and I like to have a floating co-host to keep the show fresh.
We want to use some of two interviews I did with two bands. My co-host at the time is someone that I am no longer speaking with for a variety of reasons.

I really hate to use the interviews because I don't want his face/voice on my show but there's really no way to edit him out because I made sure that the interviews would be fair: I'd ask a question and then he would. Our cameraman included shots of us asking questions so if we cut him out, the interviews would end up looking weird.
I thought of mosaic-ing his face out but that would look ridiculous.

So I've decided to keep the segments in their entirety. My question is: Since I'm going to use the segments, do I have to ask him to put it in writing that I have permission to use his image on my show?

I think I have a myspace message from when we did this that he confirmed that I could use him on the show but I doubt that is enough.

He messaged me on my birthday to say Happy Birthday and I never responded. Am I supposed to pretend I'm okay with him just to get him to sign a paper saying I can use his image and then I can just never talk to him again and continue hating his face?

I don't know the rules of using people for television, even if its just crappy cable access. I'm not going to be profitting in any way from this, I just don't want any problems.

I can't just go and to the interviews by myself again because 1. Its special to me since it was my first interview(s) and 2. They're not local bands. One of them is European; so its not like I can just go and retape it.

Please help!

2. Do you wish you had a different name? If so, what?

3. Did you get made fun of for your name as a kid?

4. Unusual/ethnic names - yes or no?

5. Other name opinions? (phonetic spellings, unusual spellings, strange names, etc)

6. My husband wants our children to have Spanish names because that's his heritage. He had an unusual Spanish name in a predominately white neighborhood. He doesn't really speak the language much and feels having an "unusual" name made him a stronger person. I just want to be able to pronounce my own kids' names. Should we name them Spanish names and I do my best with it or should he compromise with me?

i have a long commute

So, while driving to work this morning I was wondering someone was against mixing of the races how would they feel about an adopted child of a different race? For example, if a person claimed to not be racist just interested in securing the purity of their own race, would they think it was ok for a white person to adopt an asian/african child? Technically they're not ruining the bloodlines or anything since they aren't blood related.
Weird I know.

It's a 20 mile walk around Boston and having never really walked 20 miles, I'm a little concerned.

Water will be provided but we're pretty on our own for everything else. Has anyone ever done an event like this? Any suggestions?

Travel Questions+ Music..etc..

This is will be my first time traveling in quite some time. This will be my first time having an e-ticket as opposed to having paper ticket (which I like better because then I know for sure I’m on the flight). Btw, my relatives were the one who booked my ticket. I just fear that somehow the computers will have some type of error and say that they don’t have my ticket on record. Anyways, here are my questions:

1. Which is better: using a kiosk or just getting/printing out boarding pass online within 24 hrs of the flight?
2. Also I don’t want the hassle of checking in my bags since I’m only staying at my destination a mere 4 days. But is it safe to have my disposable razor (I absolutely need to shave, lol) on my carry-on?
3. Speaking of traveling, is anybody a member of the mile high club? If so, was it with random stranger or someone who you actually knew? Stories please…
4. What music would suggest on m travel playlist? (Specifically, classic rock and current music)
5. Who do you think is the most underrated classic rock band ever?

Easter

What easter related books, tv shows (or episodes), movies, etc, do you know of? That aren't religious, preferably.
My favourite easter related thing is an episode of The Adventures Of Lano and Woodley, where Col turns into a chocolate fiend, and also has a 'war' with one of their neighbours over a pair of his spotty socks that he thinks she stole, and stuff about people with speech impediments, and a priest who insists on everyone calling him  Ricky rather than Father Richard. And an Easter Rock Mass... and Frank traumatising children... :D sooo good.
So what have you got that's eastery?

I thought of another one! Father Ted. That has a GREAT easter episode, well, Lent. Where they try and quit smoking, drinking and rollerblading... :D And a nun comes to try and make them stick to their lenten vows and also make them 'better people'. It involved being dragged along behind a tractor and all sorts.

Another question: Have you heard of/Do you like The Adventures of Lano and Woodley, and Father Ted?

If every animal in the world suddenly developed the ability to speak to one another and hold conversations and think the same way humans do, how long do you think it'd be until they developed religions and started killing each other?

EDIT @ 4:20pm (Seattle time)
Yes, I know animals already kill each other for food, basic instict, territorial, yadda yadda yadda... What I was asking was about killing for religious reasons.

I really didn't think I'd have to spell this out for everybody. I wasn't even expecting full serious answers, this is TQC afterall, but based on the comments I guess I put too much faith in people's ability to use common sense to know when other people have common sense too. I mean, I know not everyone here has a high IQ, but sheesh people!

I have an Apple iBook with OS X 10.3.9. My friend just got a new HP laptop with Vista. Both have wireless. I want to transfer some files from my computer to hers.

I figured out how to create a wireless network on my computer and it picks up her laptop, but when I try to connect it wants a password and neither of us know what this means. I enabled file sharing and Windows sharing and she said she enabled filesharing on hers. She never picked me up on her computer at all.

Dilema

So it's fucking cold out (28 degrees or something) and I'm attending a Sweet 16 in the middle of nowhere. The majority of the party will be outside or in an unheated little cottage type thing. Rumor has it they might have a bonfire (woo).

So my question is this:
What the hell should I wear?

The occasion is dubbed "semi-formal" and this is high school so I want to dress to impress some hot males but above all I don't want to die of the cold. I don't have any dress pants either.

Edit: Where the party is being held it is actually 22 degrees. Yikes!

360 Wireless headset woes...

Ran into a "bit" of a sync problem with my new wireless headset for the 360(after my fraile looking wired one broke like...2 days ago). Charged it up and everything...followed the manual...supposed to work, right? Wrong. The controller(only have one currently) booted the headset off the first channel. I could only go to channel s 2-4, never back to 1. I did get it to work at some point, but it was purely by accident and couldnt reproduce exactly what I did. Looked up the troubleshooting, nothing worked. Looked up Xbox forums, and they kept talking about a problem with the headset and launch date controllers. Controllers would boot the headset off the first channel, etc. Here's the kicker: I don't own a launch 360. My 360 was bought about 2 months ago and the manufacturer date is Nov 15...of 2006. O_o I'll most likely get another wired headset(that EA football coach monstrosity the wife likes) until Logitech comes out with a headset. However, before I return the headset, want to exhaust all possible fixes to this problem. As always, your input is appreciated. =D

My sister bought a small chocolate easter egg (a kinder surprise) for her 6 month old daughter.

Granted, I don't have kids of my own, but I don't think kids this young need to have sweets and chocolates! The longer they don't have it, well, they don't know what they are missing so they don't want/need it! My other sister also gives her daughter hot chips, I know I love hot chips (french fries) but I also know there's not much good in them!

Do you think 'a little bit won't hurt', or that the earlier you start encouraging bad habits the bigger the potential for problems? I'm just concerned that kids these days have enough against them already and there's no need to feed them junk!

Do any of your screennames/usernames/email adresses/etc. have your name in them? If you do is it a silly play on words with your name?

My aim screenname has my name in it, as does a couple of other usernames on message boards and sites. Mine is a play on words with my name, but I have a couple of friends with screennames like '(their name)said' and 'sup its (their name)'

Edit I also have a school email address with is my first and last name, and a 'professional email address' which is the same thing but at gmail, but anything besides that. I totally forgot about those until people started saying them.

Hopefully you all understand this.

.Mac + EDIT

So I've had my Macbook Pro for a while, and got really bored today and decided to try a free trial with .mac.

I just put up my page today, and haven't really done much but fill in the templates yet; I still don't know if I'm going to keep it past the trial.

Anyways, I wanna get more into it, so I figured I could ask:

1. Do you have a .mac page?
2. What's your link?

I'm at http://web.mac.com/tylergscott

Unrelated Edit: Anybody know how I could go about finding an old elementary school friend, with no information besides his name and our school? (We're both 18ish now, so it was 10 or so years ago, give or take. Don't know if that would make a difference).

do you ever just put on your headphones, crank it up to a million and then jam them into your ears so it's louder than a concert and listen to all of the subtle layers that are in the music?

isn't music, like, better than sex? (sorry, i'm having a dorky poetic moment or something.)

what are you listening to right now?

Thoughts in the night

1- Do you or have you ever folded stars from strips of paper?
2- Why do gum and toothpaste companies seem to think everyone likes mint? :(
3- Do you freecycle? If so, have you ever had a no-show?
4- What noise is afoot currently? Aside from yourself typing. :P

Mine:
1- Yeah, just found my papers again tonight. :)
2- Dunno. :( I think I'm allergic to the stuff, but have little choice.
3- Yeah, and yeah... Sigh. Just tonight. :(
4- Someone walking around upstairs, husband banging around in the kitchen, and something on tv I'm barely paying attention to... some crime show.

teeth

Does Listerine mouthwash make your teeth sensitive?

I've only used it twice in the past 3 days (THAT STUFF IS STRONG). My teeth feel very very sensitive now, and I feel a possible ulcer forming (or is it called a cold sore? It's on the inside of my bottom lip/cheek). I used the correct amount, I definitely did not overdo it.

What the hell, man? If not that, what is it?

1) How come I start out with 2GB of space on my harddrive and end up with 50mb when I haven't downloaded anything? When I turn the iBook back on the missing space is suddenly back again.

2) When did you last buy a cd in a shop? So not paying to download it? What was it?
Tom McRae -- Just like blood in 2003

3) How many songs you do have on iTunes?

ew how effing creepy

ok this is SO weird to me. my friend was just telling me that when she went to the gyno, her doctor asked if she used condoms and my friend truthfully said yes. during the exam, the doctor said "Oh I can tell you do." WHAT?! HOW CAN THEY TELL IF YOU USE CONDOMS?

A friend of mine has a habit of saying "I've excellent news! The gin works!"

(If not gin, it's whatever we're drinking at the time.)

It's a very familier line, but I can't remember where from... or even if it's just that he's said it so many times that it's imprinted itself in my mind.

Any idea where it's from?

Thanks!

So I woke up this morning with really pink eyes and could barely open them up bcuz of gross gooey(sp?) stuff on them. And all day they've stayed red and they itch/hurt. 

Now I'm not sure if it's pink eye or just allergies. 

1. In your opinion, if I'm the same tomorrow should I go to work where I make ice cream all day??

2. How would you feel about the person serving you ice cream if they had really red eyes? 

3. Are you celebrating Easter? Either way, whatcha doin' on Sunday?
