Why do I attract so many crazy people? Does that say something about me? Why did I ever date a suicidal, pot-smoking, anger-issue drunk? Why do I still care about him and am there for him when all his friends have given up?

RING me on my MO-BILE

my luddite of a friend has decided to emerge from the stone age and get a cell phone. she's currently comparing sprint and verizon. sprint's $10 cheaper per month (for 200 any time minutes and free nights & wknds), but she doesn't know anyone who has it. SO, does anyone have any opinions on sprint or have anything else to contribute to the discussion? thanks!

(she'll be living in boston, if it makes a difference)

1. Hi guys, I really need help with this. It would be great if I can get answers within 4 hours(I know I can count on you guys!) I am very bad at things like screwdrivers and nails, sooooooooooo..

does anyone know of any motor that has a circular surface, it would be good if it was a small surface, and it can spin at a very, very fast rate(think helicopter or fans). I suppose you can call it a motor?
Do you think I have to build this?
How much would it cost approximately?
Got any sites?

Please! It's 1.14AM and I'm very sleepy but I'm struggling to find information on this! Thanks! :)

Why is the rum gone?

1. What is your favorite beer, if you have one?
Mine is Razz Wheat, but it's hard to find because it's from a local brewery. Otherwise I like Pacifico or Red Stripe.
2. What is the worst beer you've ever tasted?
Keystone Light
3. If you drink, do you prefer beer, wine or hard liquor?
Hard liquor in mixed drinks, but I am learning to appreciate beer and wine.
4. Have you or do you drink with your parents?
Not with mine, but my MIL bought me drinks last night. It felt a little weird to drink with her.

Are fat black girls more attractive than fat white girls?

The reason I ask this is because whilst out having a drink last night, I overheard a conversation between two young lads who seemed to think so. It went something like this:

"Yeah, I totally did her even though she was, like, a complete heffer."
"So why'd you do her then?"
"Well she was black innit so it's alright. It's the white fat chicks that I wouldn't touch."
"Oh yeah I get you now."

Obviously beauty is in the eye of the beholder whether you like fat, thin, black, white or whatever, I just thought this was strange as they were both white so it didn't seem like a racial issue so much. Curiosity killed the cat, which is why I didn't ask them about it :(

What to get a saffer?

I'm going to South Africa (Capetown) this summer, am going to school in Pittsburgh, and will be going home to Brooklyn for a little bit before I leave.

I'm staying at a friend's house in Cape Town, and I want to get him some sort of present.
I'd like to get him something he couldn't get easily there, and would rather not get him video games (not because of price, but just because he has an import place).

He's on the creative end of advertising, so anything pretty would be cool.
I'm mostly trying to brainstorm things which are exclusive to America or exclusive to Brooklyn, especially if they are difficult to buy online. I'm probably going to bring twinkies, maybe cheez-wiz, but actually cool things would be nice too.

If there are other details I should include, tell me and I will.

where can a bunch of college girls go on vacation...in august? we want to take a plane from toronto.

i would go to cuba/ mexico/all those other all inclusive type places but i heard its hurricane season. ever been during hurricane season?

is anybody awake right now?

what are you doing?

I really need some assistance here...

I am going to start renting a house from this guy. But I haven't given him any money (and he won't take it) because he hasn't gotten the key from the last tenant yet.

My question is; it's been almost a week (since about Tuesday last week the old tenant has moved out.) and he still doesn't have the key.

Now, before I offer up my question PLEASE keep something in mind. I am not exactly the most well spoken person in the world. I tend to bite off more than I can chew. I have ADHD *big surprise I'm sure* and I have a tendency to say exactly what I am thinking, but it not always in the most constructive way. I need HELP with this like yall would NOT believe.


Now for the question (sorry about that): How do I tell him that I am willing by BUY new locks for the house, because, while I do not want to call into the question this person's moral fiber, he has had the keys for an inordinate amount of time after he has moved out and I worry that he may have made copies... or if there are copies, who has them? I am a young woman, who will be living on my own and these are the things that I am thinking of when he tells me that 3-4-5 days later, he still hasn't gotten the keys back.

::takes deep breath::

I need something that sounds calm, cool, collected and most importantly rational, and not spastic (which is how it would sound if I were to pen it myself, because, I have a tendency to come off a bit... I would say STRONG, if it weren't for the fact that that would be this years biggest understatement.).

Thank yall ever so muchly..

oh and 2nd question: are the banks and post offices closed today??

If soda companies stopped putting caffeine in the drinks without telling anyone, how do you think people would react? Would they notice, or would the placebo effect take hold? Would you notice?

I think most people wouldn't really notice. I wouldn't. Every now and then I'll stop all caffeine cold turkey and I genuinely notice almost no difference whatsoever. Then again I don't drink that much to begin with.

Hey guys,

So, I want to try investing in the stock market for the first time, just to test it out and see what happens. I only want to try it with about $100.00 at first (if I can invest that little, not sure how it works.)

I've been reading a few articles so far on www.fool.com to get familiarized with how everything works, and I've decided that I want to invest online, instead of physically going to a stock broker, to avoid the higher fees (and because I want to be able to check on my stock online whenever I'm curious.)

So, fool.com has a "Broker Comparison Table" for choosing an online broker. The problem is, some of the terminology on the table is pretty foregin to me.

Here's the table: http://www.fool.com/dbc/tables/compare.htm?ref=60broker

Can anyone explain what all the criteria in the table mean? And possibly, can anyone recommend which would be the best Broker to choose for someone who wants to spend as little as possible doing this?

Thanks so much,

- Liv.

Okay, so this question is for girls. I mean, anybody can answer it, but it's probably best that a girl answers it.

So right now I'm on vacation and I got a lot of easter money. I really don't need all of it myself so I thought "Maybe I'll buy Lauren (my girlfriend) a nice gift!". The thing is, I'm on some island place in North Carolina and the only store I can really buy a gift from is some over priced tourist trap store with pretty much nothing that I think will interest her.

Now, here's my question. Which would make a girlfriend the happiest: trying to think of something nice to buy her and then buying it for her, or just giving her money and letting her spend it on something she'd want. I've gotten mixed reactions, and I dont know what's best to do! I'd just ask Lauren myself, but I want to keep it as a surprise (I know she'll be very impressed that I thought to buy her a gift) so that's out of the question.

The other day as I was reading the newspaper, I read an article about something that happened in a local movie theater.

A theater full of children ready to see The Last Mimzy was instead treated to The Hills Have Eyes 2. Without warning, a scene where a screaming woman in chains gave birth to a dead baby came onto the screen and chaos ensued. The parents were given a refund for the movie and two free passes to see The Last Mimzy.

Imagine bringing your child to see a movie and having this happen. What would you do?

Do you think it was an honest mistake, or someone playing a sick joke?

11:18 AM 4/7/07 · Flipping channels, killing time, putting off how long it will be till I go out to go see The Reaping. On the Comedy Channel they're showing Airplane (the first one obviously) and it's that part where that all important captain is entering the airport and he's fighting his way through all the religious freaks and people with causes...

...basically a bunch of pamphlet pushers. Every airport has some variation of them.

One of them, that I believe received a double spin kick to the head, said something about scientology. While I'm aware they've been around for awhile, and I partially blame this on the fact that a recent negative spin in the news of late may be the cause of this, I've only been relatively aware of them fairly recently.

Don't know offhand when Airplane came out, early 80's or thereabouts, but just how old is scientology? When was it created exactly?

1. My husband and I want to find a city to live in. We won't be moving for two years or so, but we want to start checking places out now. We want someplace that doesn't get crazy cold (I can't take Chicago's -20 anymore) and where we won't have to live in a subdivision. Bonus points if we can get a bit of land, too. But not too far from an actual city (in a city is ok, though). What to you think, TQC? Do you know of a magical place we can live that will fit all of the criteria?

I should be happy for her, but since I don't like kids, I don't understand the allure. I know we're probably going to lose her as a friend and that makes me really sad.

A. going to college for something English/Journalism related;

C. getting a business degree so I can open my own place (probably a bookstore); or
D. running away to California to become a Hollywood hobo because I just can't handle this many choices.

polaroid cameras and sinusitis

1) Do any of you all out there have a polaroid camera? If so, can you tell me which kind or recommend what model I should get? I'm looking for one that's not too vintage (i.e. they still sell the film for it).

2) Do any of you all out there have sinusitis or chronic sinus infections? Besides going to the doctor and getting antibotics, do you suggest any ways of relieving the pressure? I have tried vaporizers, which help, and a neti pot, which also helps.

3) What's your favorite letter?

4) How many fingers am I holding up?

5) Would you let me pee on you?/Have you ever let anyone pee on you?/Have you ever peed on anyone?

Silent Treatment

I haven't talked to a friend of mine in a year and a half.

We used to be best friends, and we practically dated for quite a few months. He's a really great guy, and we knew pretty much everything about each other. However, he got really into alcohol and partying. I hated him when he drank, despite the fact that he was still really sweet to me when he drank, and after one bad night, I stopped talking to him.

He said "hi?" the next day on MSN, but since then, he hasn't tried to talk to me. Most people know that I'll talk to people when I'm ready, though.

I'm happy without him in my life, but sometimes I'm wondering why we purposely do not talk to one another. We have mutual friends, and we've seen each other about five times since we stopped talking, but we've never said a word or really looked at each other.

The problem is that he still turns into an idiot when he drinks. I saw him at a small house party a few weeks ago, and everyone said that was the worst he's ever been. (He got violent when his friends tried to take him home.) I can't stand seeing him like that, and I worry excessively about him when I know he's drinking.

I've been told (quite a few months ago) that he drove by my house whenever he was in the area. He also still has me added to MSN, despite the fact that I deleted him over a year ago; he's the type of person to know who is on his MSN.

I just think it's kind of weird that we don't talk, even though we still have mutual friends. He's not as close with them anymore, though.

I can't decide whether or not I should get in touch with him again. I think it'd be too awkward to talk in person (especially since we're never near each other, even when we're at the same place), so online would be the route to go.

But should I even talk to him? And if I do, what would I say?

Poll #963384 Disaster!

The earth has been depopulated! The only humans left are just you....and Dick Cheney (or Rosie O'Donnel, if you're a guy). You have the option of repopulating the human race by rigorous copulation, or letting our species perish. Rosie's surprisingly open to hetero nookie in this scenario. What do you do?

Buck up and start procreating as much as my loins can bear
I'll make one or two kids. Whatever happens after that, I've done my part for the preservation of the species
Human race goes bye-bye. No one's getting pregnant if I have anything to say about it
Not only do I not procreate with the other person, I beat them within an inch of their life and leave them for dead

1. What all have you had to drink today?
2. What is one trait you have which you are currently working to fix/improve/change?

1. I've had Diet Coke, a half peanut butter-half dark chocolate milkshake, Sprite mixed with pomegranate juice, and lots of water.
2. I'm trying to talk to people more often rather than just *thinking* about talking to them.


1. I'm trying to find a website that offered magazine subscriptions for practically nothing. They had a ton of different magazine choices and were, from what I remember, legitimate. I even bought my mom a subscription to Outside Magazine for around ten bucks, so I know it once existed. Does anyone remember this website? I checked a few through google, but they were only knocking off around $10 a subscription.

2. Any home remedies for easing the pain of a burn that's on the side of my hand and therefore gets in the way of everything? I burned myself two days ago and so far it hasn't even started healing.

Why is it that, as a society, in most cases it is all well and good to say a rude comment about somebody if you feel it is deserved (God that guy was so emo; Could that lady have taken any longer in the check out line!?) but once someone is dead, if you say something about them you are yelled at for speaking ill of the dead?

Liberal arts university/college

1.) What makes a liberal arts college/university appealing to someone who isn't going to major in liberal arts? Liberal arts college seems so interesting to me, but after googling, they said it's for people who want to create their own careers.

3.) What are the pros and cons?

Firefox help

I heard, a long time ago, of a Firefox extension which expanded an LJ comment page, stopping it from hiding all comments two into the thread.
I didn't take note of it at the time, but then I joined this community, and, well, you guys just never shut the fuck up ^_^
So...anyone know what this extension is called?

Random Questions

1) How tall are you? How tall are you in a pair of heels? Has your height ever deterred you from wearing heels?

2) Every once in a while I have a dream that feels very real where I'm pregnant, am ususally in labor for most of the dream, and ususally wake-up before the baby comes. When I wake up I kind of consider this is a nightmare because I don't think I want kids and for me to have one at this point in my life would be very bad. So, why am I dreaming about being pregnant and having a baby when that's not something that I want from life? It's not even on my mind very much and there's no chance of me actually getting pregnant right now.

3) My brother pretty much survives on Ramen instant noodles, Campell's chicken noodle soup, toast, and various microwaveable freezer foods. This, as you know, isn't healthy. Can you think of any healthier foods that a picky kid might be interested in trying? (Before anyone jumps on me about him being a bratty kid, he's also autistic. Part of it is just the fact that he's very sensitive to texture and taste.)

4) What do you think of the name Marion? On a man?

1. Have you ever resigned as mod of a community? What was your reason for doing so?

2. Which of the userpics you use is your favorite?

3. Are you missing anyone at the moment?

4. Did you sleep well last night?

my answers:

1. I did this morning. I handed one of my communities over to a friend. We had been discussing that community and I felt it was time for me to pass it to someone else who will probably be a better mod than I was.

2. The one I'm using for this post.

3. Yes, I miss my girlfriend. We don't get to talk as much as we used to.

4. Slept just fine.

practical vs. crazy

EDIT: I change into the shoes I can run in before I'll be completely alone. Like when I go to a show in the city I change my shoes right before I leave either while I'm still in the venue or right outside.

Whenever I'm going somewhere where I will be alone in the dark (like a show in the city, or to my class on tuesday/thursday night) I always make sure I have shoes I can run in just in case someone attacks me or something. If I'm not wearing shoes I could run in (which I'm usually not) I carry a pair of flats that I could run in inside my handbag. Is this practical or crazy?

I finally got a job! I'll be working at Macy's formal department a few days a week, selling suits and dresses :)

I have to buy clothes for the uniform, though, which is black from head to toe. I'm a big girl so I have trouble finding clothes in regular department stores that fit comfortably. There's a store I can go to for plus sized girls, but it's more expensive.

Should I spend more on clothes that will definitely fit, or should I try to save more money and hope for the best at department stores?

Also, any recommendations on what shoes I should wear while I'm working? I have a few pairs of black shoes: sneakers, loafers, heels, and maybe a pair of flats (I'm not sure if I still have them and since I'm painting my room, my stuff is every where).

Anyone ever work at Macy's before? Stories, tips, anything?

Baby registry?

Despite me being loco for babies, I never knew baby registries existed until... uh, now.

I know people seem to find wedding registries tacky for some reason (I still don't get why)... but what about baby registries?

Are they only tacky if it's for a second or later baby, as opposed to the first child of a couple?

What would happen if there was a miscarriage or similar complications, and there was no baby to receive the gifts anymore? Is there a good timeframe that someone should make a registry just in case of said problems?

I'm going all googly eyed at these things, and cursing myself for it. :(

Am I the only person that thinks going to a strip club is a waste of time and money?

All that happens is you give money to strippers, buy food that's likely to be mediocre, spend more on alcohol than you would at home, and leave frustrated with a wet spot in your undergarments from pre-ejaculation.

5 saltines with a wedge of Laughing Cow light garlic and herb cheese (105 calories)
A bowl of the delicious baked ziti I made for dinner (too many calories - but a whole lot of tasty)
a glass of decaffeinated iced tea (only 5 calories)
nothing you big fatty!

Well, instead of finishing up my close reading of a passage from Anna Karenina, I thought I would ask this question that's been on my mind lately:

Does your heart really skip a beat when you think about/see someone you like?

I don't know what else could be happening in that area other than your heart skipping. Why does that happen? It seems crazy to me that your body could have such a strong physical reaction to something you only see. (And yes, I did look this up on Google and only found things about sneezing and actual medical conditions.)
