1. Is there anything you've been eager to say/do but the opportunity hasn't presented itself yet? What is it?
2. Without looking it up, what would you say is the widest river in the world?
Has anyone ever bought from eyeslipsface.com before?
How do you like the products?
I was looking at product reviews today and some people were complaining that the makeup is made in China and that's why it's so cheap and some said that the makeup sucked because it wasn't made in America. Any credence to this?
I'm an eyeshadow fiend and have all of their eyeshadows. I absolutely love them. I also have a few brushes, a shimmering facial whip, some applicator things, and the pressed powder. I love all of it. I don't wear makeup all the time and my taste in colors changes a lot so I like having a lot to choose from and not having to pay a lot for it, but I keep seeing so many bad things about the company that it's worrying and confusing me a little, especially since I've always gotten my packages in a timely manner and the products have worked amazingly for me.
Does anyone else have problems with their wii not connecting to the internet consistently? Our connection seems to be completely sporadic and I've followed all of the suggestions on the Nintendo support website...
I'm bored. :(
Will you please tell me a joke?
What are you doing right now, apart from reading and/or answering this?
Cliche, I know, but who would you want to be for a day?
Better yet, what other species would you want ot be for a week?
When someone says the phrase, "perfect lifesyle," describe the image that pops into your head. Is that your idea of a perfect lifestyle, or a stereotypical idea? If the latter, what's your idea of a perfect lifestyle?
What are things that you like to do when you have the house/apartment/etc to yourself?
Personally, I walk around without pants on and drink straight from the carton.
may 16 - last day of classes
may 17 - "reading day" - no classes, no exams
may 18 - first day of final exams
my birthday is the 17th. i will be 21. i have no finals on friday.
do you think i should have my party on the 16th, and have to have someone else buy the alcohol for the party, or on the 17th, when some of my close friends might not be able to go because of friday finals?
in either case, i already have daytime plans for my birthday.
not having a party is totally out of the question. this is my last chance before i'm too old and nobody's given a shit about my birthday since i was like 10. so there.
edit: i can't go barhopping because a lot of my friends aren't 21 yet.
Are there any designer jeans that aren't capris that come with a 28" inseam? I'm really short. 29" is too long on me. :-( And it costs too much to get them altered.
Have you ever met anyone from Lichtenstein?
Have you ever known a South African? What languages did he/she speak?
How many flavors of gelato have you tried?
Where are you going on your next vacation, or where would you like to go?
1. Is there any completely normal thing that you find incredibly squicky? A friend of mine is grossed out by eyes. Yeah, sure, just an eye on the table would freak anyone out, but like normal eyes bug him, he could never wear contacts or put in eye-drops or anything. Actually this is true of at least two of my friends. I'm grossed out by belly-buttons, I don't like to look at them with one exception and I hate the thought of anything involving them. I could never pierce mine although I really want to, because the jewelry is neat. But urgh urgh urgh bellybuttons.
2. What's your favorite kind of toffee, if you like toffee? Do you have a recipe or a link where I could order it?
3. As my icon says, "Any chocolate?" Yes. Always chocolate.
4. Does the idea of teaching small children freak you out? It does me, because I may end up doing it.
1. A woman is attracted to men aesthetically (finds them attractive) but not romantically or sexually. She is attracted to women in all three ways. Would you consider this woman a lesbian?
2. What book(s) are you currently reading?
Once Upon A Time by Gloria Vanderbilt and The Areas Of My Expertise by John Hodgman
1. Do you choke up when you think about the knocking down of the Berlin Wall?
2. Have you ever panicked in front of a lot of people and been incapable of continuing whatever you were doing?
3. Which do you think tastes the best: tangerines, mandarin oranges, navel oranges or clementines?
1. Yes, every time and I don't know why.
2. Yes, during a presentation in 11th grade, I started sobbing and had to sit down without doing the rest of the presentation. It was especially weird because I usually do really well with speeches and acting and all that spotlight business.
3. Clementines all the way.
What is the most creatively named business you've ever heard of?
I used to go to a place where you would paint pottery and they would fire it for you and it was called A Time to Kiln. This girl I knew, her father owned PDQ delivery. Everyone assumed it was the man's initials. It actually meant Pretty Damn Quick. There were 2 local scrapbook stores (does anyone on here scrap book?!?!) called Holy Scrap and Full of Scrap
What is your real name? What do your friends call you? What does your family call you?
My real name is Shae. My mom calls me pumpkin or shaeshae. My dad calls me Little One or Taco Head (don't ask because I don't know). My extended family calls me ShaeShae LaRue (which my cousin turned into ShaehaeShae LaRue, smells like poo-poo). My friends call me Digga, Shaebay, Shaebaby, ShaeShae, Shaebay e-bay, and many other ridiculous things.
What song do you currently wish you could hear over and over?
I have a million favorite songs, but I'm currently rocking the shit out of "Black Republicans" Jay-z and Nas.
Have you seen Pearl, the landlord?
I die every time she says "I'm just buzzed" Little kids using foul language is quite possibly the funniest thing ever.
I've checked this post twice for errors, but I must admit I just got in from the bar. Please don't kill me.
I have never seen anyone else have this problem before - why do I get so depressed after working out for awhile? By awhile I mean, by the third week of me working out I start to get depressed.
I have no idea, and it really honestly has nothing to do with me not seeing improvements because when I do work out I see results fairly quickly. I'll go to the gym for about an hour every other day and I'll feel great at first because of the endorphins but I get to the point where I feel like my life is not worth living after I'm done working out haha. Does anyone else experience this?
Also, why is it so hard for me to sleep? I've been having the worst luck with sleeping. I can go to work for 8 hours, go to school for 4 hours, work on homework, play with my cats for awhile, play WoW, and it will be 1, 2, 3, 4 am and I am still awake. Or if I am somewhat passed out, I am inbetween sleeping and being awake and I'm going through some stupid story in my head but I keep opening my eyes. I did this from 12-5 last night. And here I am up at 4:10am tonight.
For a long time I've been a night owl. I'm obsessed with staying up all night. It seems that nothing I've tried so far has worked. When I go to bed, I usually find myself getting up again because I just can't sleep. Going to bed and staying there is much easier said than done. I've always slept better during the day but my current job doesn't allow that. At this point, my lack of sleep has affected my job performance, my health and my relationship with my partner. I honestly don't know if I will ever be able to overcome this problem. I'm wondering if anyone else here has gone through something like this or if you've known someone who has? What would you say is the best way to overcome a problem like this?
I would try sleeping pills if I wasn't afraid of becoming addicted to them. I know someone who is and it has made his life hell.
Are you one of those people who refuse to admit that they're drunk no matter how hammered they actually are?
With all the media hype over the Virginia Tech massacre, how many Americans do you honestly think realized that at least 6 times as many people were killed in a series of bombings in Baghdad yesterday?
Don't you think it's about time we started to GTFO?
*EDIT* Question 2 is, in general, unrelated to question 1. If I made any mistake, it was putting them in the same post. Q1 was not meant to be political, just me venting my frustration with humanity. Since you've probably had enough of my shit at this point, I'll just shut up.
So, rumour has it that a new guy moved into the neighborhood- he's young, good looking, owns his own business, and most importantly, single. How should I introduce myself and welcome him to the area?
Do you use a PC or a Mac? Which one would you recommend?
If you could be anyone else, who would you be?
I'd be a coffee shop owner in Ft Colloins CO and give free lattes to hot chicks...or I'd own a coffee plantation in Belize
If you could have a do-over...what would it be?
I wouldn't have majored in Communications....no way!!
Would you ditch your SO if you could???
So, how many death threats will I get for my last post?
Closest guess wins a super secret special prize!
Do you ever bang on the wall when your neighbors are having sex right next to you?
I was just tempted to, not because of the sex, but because the squeaky mattress was really annoying me.
My boss just threw up but insisted she get on a conference call.
I've had a sinus thing all week, but have come into the office.
Why do people insist on going to work, even when sick? Do you go to work when you're sick?
Why are elevator rides so akward?
Have you ever done anything to make the trip a little more interesting?
I was in there with just a bunch of friends, and we were laughing about how elevators are akward and that we should spice up the ride because we all were friends, so I said "We should all jump up and down!" just to see if anyone would actually do it...we were only stuck for about 20 minutes...
Also...how should I get the song stuck in my head out?

If you were listening to a presentation on Catalan, would you rather watch:
A clip of catalan music with catalan lyrics
A clip of a catalan TV show
See something that's normally in english which has been dubbed in catalan?

Have you ever met someone that you thought was gay but were surprised to find was straight?
What made you think this person wasn't straight?
How often do you make judgements about the sexuality of people you meet? Why?
one of my best friends has just called me to tell her she and her idiot boyfriend have decided to get an apartment together.(clearly they discussed it last night after their week "break" and he's out looking for an apartment right now.
Now let me give you some background on their relationship. She has cheated 15+ times, boy doesnt have a clue in hell, in the 4 years ive known him this is the first ive ever seen him have a job, and he hates it and would rather sit at home smoking weed and living off welfare than work. He doesnt have any savings, a car, a license, a life plan,a steady job, only a GED, and she actually might be going somewhere in life if she doesnt have him dragging her down.
They are "on a break" 40% of the time and she is "Waiting for him to do something really stupid so i can just break up with him and be rid of him"
Now, i think them moving in together is the stupidest thing ive heard in about a year.
1) Let her do it, realize how stupid it was, and then have her move back home only for me to say "i told you so"?
2) try to get her to understand how stupid of an idea this is?
3) stay out of it in general
*keep in mind we're been best friends for 6 years, i basically call her parents mom and dad, and id rather see this guy dead on the road then married to her in 3 years*
Last night I woke up at 3:30am with the stomach flu, and threw up everything in my stomach. I took birth control at 10:30pm that previous night. I would figure it would have absorbed, but the last time I ate had been at 7pm that night, and I threw up a bunch of food. So obviously the stuff I'd eaten before even taking birth control hadn't completely absorbed...
1- Should take another pill from the pack?
2- If I do that, I'll be 1 pill short this month. Will having 20 days of pills versus 21 do anything bad?
I have googled this but havent found any reputable sources and/or nothing that helps me.
1)What is the right of free response? Can someone link me to a place that will tell me what it is, it's history, etc? I know what it is in laymans terms but I need to know what it is legally.
2) Lets say you want to set up your own radio station. What are the legal steps you would need to follow in order to start your own station (link to where you found said legal steps) and if someone else wants your frequency rating how could you increase your chances of winning the license (link with proof)?
Again, I have googled and have come up with nothing. I fail at google where as you guys are wizards with google. Thanks so much!

Do any of you out there get these things?
How do you deal with them?
I'm at work right now and I have a huge meeting later, so it's imperative that I stay here for the rest of the day. Any suggestions on making myself ok right now?

2- Last time you bit your own tongue?

4- Scalp massage, 100%.
I soaked a bowl of beans so that I could leave them overnight and cook them in the morning, only I was really busy and sort of left them there for 3 days in a bowl of water. I didn't really think it was a big deal. I started cooking them now, and raw, they were similar to crispy vegetables, not hard to chew through, and as they're cooking they are extremely foamy and smell like corn. Are they gonna come out right?
Update: They came out right, hooray! They also aren't really different than when I don't over-soak them.

When you're getting your nails done and the lady is doing it completely wrong, do you say something? Do you wait until she is done and get someone else to fix it? Do you complain?
Today a woman nearly drilled a hole through my nail (which you can see THROUGH the acrylic!) and I was too scared to say something because, well, she had my hands captive. I was also afraid I'd end up walking around for a few days with incomplete nails.
What's the proper way to say, "Hey bitch, you be fuckin' up my nails, y0!"?
I skipped classes today (I could go to the third one, but I'm just not feeling like it) and even though I know it was dumb to do, I didn't have a presentation finished and an assignment done. I found out about my grandma--one of her ovaries is the size of a baseball and it all has to come out, and I've been feeling pessimistic and bleah all week, and just needed a day to be a bum.
When's the last time you had a "bum" day?
DISCLAIMER: I'm not making light of anyone's situation by using the word "bum"--I am just bumming around the apartment in my robe, watching cheesy TV on TLC.
1) Have you ever purposely humiliated someone in public? What'd you do?
2) For those of you that watch NFL Football: If you believe in the Madden Curse who would you want to be on the next cover of Madden?
3) What's a topic people probably shouldn't talk about when they're drunk?
My brother has a fungus in his throat. Am I the only one who finds this disgusting?
Just typing the word fungus made me gag a little :(
I found my tablet pen! Where do you think it was?
Did you have a creepy toy when you were little? What was it like?
My mom gave me and my sister a doll that looked like a Barbie, but it had a really creepy angry grin and we never liked playing with it or even touching it.
Are there a lot of compulsive liars out there, or do I just have the luck of finding them?
Why is that one girl in my photography class always pissed off at everybody?
Biggest disapointment today?
I ordered some supposedly very authenlic mexican food today, hoping that the spice would help my cold. It's the blandest food that I've EVER had. And I had a swedish grandma!
edit: bland = no flavour. as in the tamal tasted of nothingness.
Hi thar question club.
1. Have you ever driven cross-country? If so, what was it like? (Why, who with, where to, how long, etc.)
2. If you were going to drive cross-country, which sights would you want to stop and see along the way? (Feel free to recommend both places you've already been or places you just think would be cool.)
3. If you were going to drive cross-country, who would you want to do it with and why?
4. Like a desert island question, only different: what three things would you want to take with you on a cross-country road trip? Assume you already have boring stuff like road maps and water bottles.
EDIT realized that I should have mentioned I'm guilty of forgetting that the internets =/= America. So I'm talking about the US here but feel free to contribute answers anyway if you've done something similar somewhere else or if you can still imagine what you'd like to see in the U.S. ;)
Does your mouth itch when you get sick?
Or your throat?
How do you personally make it stop?
Mine does. I usually rub my tongue ring over the itchy spots or suck on a cough drop to distract myself.
First a situation, then the questions.
Suppose that you're in high school and taking two different literature courses in the same year, and the subjects studied often overlap. In one class, you are assigned to write a satirical essay of any topic. Two weeks later, you are assigned a satirical essay of any topic in the other class. The rubrics for both classes are word for word identical; the only differences between them are the name of the class at the top of the page. After having had both these teachers for about 30 weeks, you've not gotten any indication that they interact with each other outside of meetings and the like, much less discuss the work their students turn in.
Since you've already written the essay for one class, would you turn in the same essay for the second class? Why? Are there any other factors that would influence your decision?
This isn't asking for advice (I've already decided to write a new one), just asking what you all would do in this situation.
What was the first CD you ever had?
How would you handle,
1. Telling your over protective parents your considering moving out.
2.Confronting someone who you just met and youv'e already found out that said person is lying about stupid things.
3. A person who was in a band that was writing nasty songs about you and playing them at shows, would you say anything to anyone or would you suck it up and deal with it?
and last but not least,
When you go to Ikea which do you tackle first, Getting those yummy snacks or the actual shopping, And where do you start and do you steal handfuls of their golf pencils?
I want to apply for a job at Barnes and Noble, but I have some questions before I submit my application:
1) Will B&N hire someone for just the summer? I don't think there's a store near my college so it's not like I can transfer anywhere, and I don't think they would want to take the time to train me just for me to have to go.
2) Should I mention my cashier experience? I was the cashier at my uncle's deli for a year, and it's was defunct so I don't consider myself all that great at it.
Due to recent downpours, my basement flooded out completely. It became so high that it knocked out the pilot light in my hot water heater. I've relit it a thousand and one times but for some reason whenever somebody uses the hot water, it goes out again. Is there anything I can do to remedy this or should I go looking for a new hot water heater?
Who are/were some well known teachers that made a huge difference to underprivileged kids in America? If a movie was made about it, please tell the movie.
I know that lady from "Freedom Writers" was one.
There's a $100 bill on the ground.
Do you take it?
Hate to say it, but I could really use the money,,,
Edit: One more question
... I have a Toshiba laptop that I have had for a few years now... Recently the screen keeps falling over all the way open or closed, and nothing will hold it up, and today for some reason it's even worse. It's been sitting on my desk like it's always been but all of a sudden this is happening. Anyone else have this problem? How can I fix it, for the time being? How the hell could that have happened?
Why do people consider IVF/fertility treatment before they consider adoption?
Personally, I'd rather adopt and actually have an end product then risk shit loads of cash on something that might not work.
Can you pay parking tickets with cash?
What the hell is going on with all this pet food contamination?
What would you think of someone who is wearing a shirt that says "I'm not crazy, I'm a Scientologist"?
My guy friend was interested in this (slutty) girl at my school, who lives in my dorm ... he's talking to her and then he gets a text message, out of the blue, saying "I'm in a suckin mood."
He thinks she meant "I'm in a SHITTY mood."
As a girl, and through common sense, I told him she was saying "I want your cock in my mouth."
But apparently, he's heard the term "Suckin mood" to mean "shitty mood." Seriously, I've never heard that one before.
...What would you say she meant?
Do you think that someone who believes in God ought to have a reason for doing so?
If, regardless of your current beliefs, you found out that God had ceased to exist today, would you do anything differently? (Assuming that the world continued uninformed)?
If the world received some kind of giant official cosmic memo that God was in deed dead, how would that affect the world?

I know this is gonna sound majorly retarded, but can animals be depressed? Because I think my fish suffers from major depression problems.
Edit: It's a beta fish. I was thinking that maybe he's just old, but I don't know how long they live for... anybody? I've had him for a few months. My last one disappeared, but I had him for over a year.
1. Is there any music artist/group that you really don't like listening to, but you enjoy the lyrics?
I like the lyrics to most Bright Eyes songs, but there's only a few I like listening to. I really don't like the way Conor Oberst sings them, though I like his voice.
2. Do you ever get to places waaaaaaaay too early?
I usually leave for my classes 45 minutes to an hour before they start. Same goes with most every other place I go. I'd rather be too early than even a little late.
3. What's your strangest hobby or collection, if you have one?
Why do pantyhose fit so weird?
And I'm about to cry cause the pants that fit me last week won't button today and I have nothing else for work. What the hell, TQC?
Hello out there San Francisco natives I will be visiting there soon. Where would you suggest visiting? I like to get off the beaten path and enjoy all places have to offer. I would like to visit some wine tasting room seeing how I will be so close to Napa Valley. A chocolate shop,some historic palaces and good food is always high on the list. So if I can get some options that would be great! Thank You!!!! :)
For those who use any kind of MP3:
How do you get your music?

b. Buy the whole CD
c. Progams like Limewire, where you can freely download songs.
d. Other. Please explain.
It's turned into summer here. I now have a heat rash on my chest. Putting on sun screen doesn't prevent it.
What, other than wearing something that doesn't expose any skin, can I do to prevent heat rash from the sun when I'm out and about? And, any suggestions of things (preferably natural remedies) I can put on heat rash bumps to make them a) go away and b) not itch?
1. What would one wear to a Jewish Funeral Service?
My mentor just passed away and her service is tomorrow but I'm not sure if they are strict on what people wear in their
church temple. I've never been and we never really talked about it so I am clueless.
Edit: i've learned it's not called a church
Do you know where I can watch the video of Conan O'Brien's commencement speech to Harvard? I youtubed it like crazy, but no sucess.
1. If computers hadn't been invented, what would you be doing now?
2. Would you be a different kind of person without Internet and computers? In what ways?
Background- My husband's supervisor is a total ass. He steals from the company, treats the employees like crap (particularly anyone who isn't white), and is ruining a bunch of their longtime accounts. Guy isn't gone already because he's friends with the owner of the (small, family owned) company.
What happened today- This boss wrote up a woman there because he didn't like her perfume. The write-up said the perfume caused a loss in productivity (according to my husband, nobody had noticed that the woman was even wearing perfume).
1) Have you ever been written up?
a) If so, for what?
2) What's the most ridiculous thing you've heard someone getting in trouble over at work?
Well I'm moving out for the first time in a few weeks, to a little home. The current tennant isn't moving out until April 30th, and the landlord wants to start charging us rent May 1.
My question is, doesn't she have to take time to clean it and inspect it for us? and if so isn't she NOT supposed to charge us rent until the keys are handed over? Does anyone know what she's supposed to do (clean the carpets etc..) before we move in?
There was a post about olives in TQC yesterday, and it made me want some, so I bought a jar of green olives last night. I just cracked it open today and ate a whole bunch... mmmm.
What was the last thing you did in real life that you did because of something on TQC?
I’m 17 and currently trying to work out what I should study at university. I’m doing English and Physics for sure, but I’m not sure if I want to major in TESOL (teaching English as a second language) or not. I plan to teach English in South Korea, and possibly Scandinavia once I leave university: has anyone here taught in either of these two places, and can you tell me if a TESOL qualification is required/is helpful? Google keeps giving me conflicting answers. (Oh, and just to clarify, google keeps giving me “Learn to teach English in two weeks! Only $250!!!!” What I plan to do would be an actual university qualification which requires learning and assessment of abilities.)
Have you ever won an award and been published by Poetry.com (or a similar site)?
Wait, maybe I should rephrase that question.
Have you, or has anyone you know, ever submitted a poem to such a site and NOT been told you're being published?
Did you / anyone you know fall for it and pay $50 for the book?
How horrified were you / how much did you laugh at them when you realized what a pile of shit it was?
My answer: I once wrote 5 minutes of freestyle gibberish and submitted it just to see what happened. I won an "editor's choice award", along with an invitation to spend $50 to see my poem printed in a book. I felt sad for humanity.
What's comes to mind when you hear the word witchcraft?
1. Which songs get you "pumped up"(make you feel like you can do anything)?
2.Which mellow songs calm you down and just put you in a good state of mind?
I have a community service requirement at 8:30 AM, April 21 (Saturday). And I have to know before I decide if I'm going out on Friday...
1. Would it being the day after 4/20 be reasonable cause for a drug test?
2. Considering I won't be there for a drug related incident, is there a way to refuse without looking guilty?
3. Even if I didnt smoke, and was simply around other people who were, can I get in trouble for having it in my system/not reporting it?
4. What about alcohol from the night before? Would that show up in a drug test?
I tried to Google it, but I couldn't understand much of what I was reading... :/
I'm going to southern Arizona for the week.
If I spend a few hours outside will I absolutely need sunscreen? By absolutely, I mean to prevent sunburn.
For reference I am fairly pale, and in PA I would only really need sunscreen (to prevent sunburns) in summer, if I was outside more than 3-4 hours. But I know in the summer when we go to south carolina, I absolutely burn after an hour, so I don't know about Arizona this time of year.
We're visiting relatives for the first time and I don't want to annoy anyone with that sunscreen smell unless I have to!
What's the yummiest kind of alcohol?
I think Smirnoff Appley things are delicious.
O great TQC, I have lost my sense of evil. I'm going to be interviewing a large number of people I work with to evaluate them for promotion, and I need some hard questions to throw at them. I've already got a couple of nasty ones, but I want to hear from you. If you were being interviewed for this kind of promotion, what would you absolutely dread being asked?
I'm making a slide how on microsoft power point and I want to make one of the clip art pictures into a watermark... help?
I'm semi-listening to the current episode of "Grey's Anatomy", and a background song caught my ear. It was a lower-key version of Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself", and it was sung (very well) by a woman.
Where can I find out who performed it and where I can download it?
What is your favorite Disney soundtrack?
Why do the Disney with Pixar movies have such crappy soundtracks?
Did you ever have a bad experience meeting a celebrity?
Do pregnant icons bug you?
What about babies + spit?
I dunno why they bother me. I'm not CF, but pregnant bellies make me wanna crushkittens.
Oh wise TQC,
Does anyone know tricks to subtly reform a roommate's ways?
1. I live in a college dorm and occassionally businesses (ie restaurants, places that are hiring) will slip menus or flyers under our door. These apparently make my roommate angry. However, instead of just picking them up and throwing them in her trash can, she opens the door and very dramatically tosses the paper/menu/whatever onto the hallway floor.
For some reason this REALLY bothers me because it's not fair to whoever cleans the hallway to pick up after her and I don't want to either. I also don't want people to think I'm just throwing stuff out of our room.
2. Also, she watches TV all the time. all. the. time. It seems like mostly when I'm reading/doing work or something she will turn it on (which is fine--I can do work with the TV on, but she turns it up so loud I can hear it when I'm down the hall in the bathroom, and I can't think over that). Unless she has a paper due, then she announces, "Ok, no TV today, I've got some work to get done!" and I feel like she's my mom who's grounded me or something. It's her TV (I brought the fridge) so I feel weird doing anything.
3. My boyfriend stops by occasionally. Apparently she is his mother too. We don't really have room "rules" or something but you would think we do. He'll walk in and she will say, "Jesse, time to take off your shoes." or "stop chewing so loudly."
Everything I come up with to say sounds way too sarcastic in my head. What are your behavior modification tricks?
Do you think I'm just getting annoyed because I'm sick of living with her all year?
What are some good songs to add to my new phone?
What ever happened to Miss Cleo?
Call me now!
I want to learn about the past hundred years or so, just general history, particularly centered in South America, Europe and Africa. Can anyone recommend any books?
What make-up do you wear on a daily basis?
1. what would you
eat drink with crackers and cheese?
(not wine, because i'm not supposed to drink (edt:)alcohol yet)
2. what's your favorite kind of cheese?
3. what's your favorite wine?
4. do you prefer red or white wine?
i wanna make a cd but don't know what to put on it...not big into rap or shit like that...country, old songs, pop, stuff i can dance around too....lol right now i'm listening to boys 2 men
EDIT: Anyone know of any good songs they can suggest for me?!?!
I'm doing my Intercultural Communications project on transgendered people. So I'm curious.
1. What do you know about transgendered people?
2. What would you like to know about transgendered people?
3. Do you know of any good songs we could use for our project?
I was hoping to use a Peaches song but then I realized there aren't really any that would apply.
#1 = urination
#2 = defecation
Let's assume, on average, people urinate more than they defecate in a day. Well, what if Bob has always defecated more than he has ever urinated. Would his #1 be defecation? And would he think everyone pooped just as much as he did when they answer 'number one' when asked 'you going number one or number two'? And would Bob be malnourished? have jaundice? scurvy? Anything else?
When the Lotto 6/49 "Happy Dance" ad comes on, do you get up and dance? I do, religiously, but I don't know anyone else who does.
I see the ad on Global, which is a Canadian channel. I thought it was a pretty widespread thing, because I remember seeing it on other channels, but I could be wrong. So, if your answer is yes, what channel have you seen it on?
What's the most embarrassing thing you've told a group of people while intoxicated?
(I realize that's kind of an odd thing to ask in a public forum.)
Do you really regret saying it?
Of a band or artist you are a fan of, what is their worst song? One that makes you almost embarrassed for them?
Why is the phrasing of that question so awkward? How would you have written it?
Is killing ever justified? Even when the victim ate the last of the cheese?
ETA: Hey, I remembered another question. Are you familiar with Karl Pilkington?
The local megalo-mart, QFC, took over what used to be a small shopping center in the heart of a trendy urban neighborhood, Capitol Hill, here in Seattle. The old store was adequate, the new store is a little obnoxious - but it's close. When they opened, they tried for an absurdly upscale image, but they seem to be plunging... down, down, down. And today I saw mothballs. Right in the middle of this sky-lit, upwardly striving, mostly-groceries market, next to the balsamic vinegar, the truffles, the caviar, and five kinds of pesto, mothballs. Advertised as "old-fashioned" or "traditional," or something, mothballs, but still.
WHY would anyone use mothballs?
They stink. They stink unbelievably. What a nauseating stench. Why would anyone wish to smell that way? I'd rather wear sweaters completely riddled with holes (it would be great, it would look like The Matrix!) than smell like mothballs.
And mothballs are toxic. I'm pretty sure they're carcinogenic, and they do some other horrible things to health. I'm too lazy to google it now, but I remember reading something about how toxic they are. So with the stink and the toxicity, why would anyone choose these things when there's cedar?
There's cedar, and it smells lovely. Cedar chests, cedar drawers, cedar drawer liners, cedar blocks, cedar balls, cedar oil. The options range from the luxurious to the economical. Cedar is within everyone's reach. I have it in my drawers, and my sweaters, hats, scarves, and gloves are just fine. No moths.
And if someone's sensitive to cedar, there are other natural oils and herbs which repel moths. Even patchouli, which was used to keep moths from fine shawls in another era, would smell better than mothballs!
So why do people still use mothballs?!
Mmm ok, I hate to post twice within the span of a few hours, and about the same subject no less (but I did figure out the answer to my other question!), but I am desperate.
I feel really stupid about this, but I can't find the answer I'm looking for anywhere. SO, with that said...
Two six sided dice are rolled.
(a) Find the number of ways a total of 8 is possible.
(b) What is the probability of getting the number 8?
I know this is a really easy question, and I know the answers to them. I just want to know...what is the formula to figure out (a)? And perhaps, what chapter/subject would this question fall under in a statistics book (so I can look it up)?
Thank you SO much. So very very much.
To those in the UK:
Will 'God Hates Fags' by Louis Theroux be shown on BBC2 again? I missed it!
If you can hear the rain coming down when you are lying in bed trying to sleep, does it bother you? Do you like the noise?
Anybody sleep next to a drain spout?
For the record, I sleep next to a drain spout and I love the noise.
I have these plastic, springy hair-curling things that heat up.
Do I dry my hair beforehand, or do I go ahead and put them in while my hair is wet? I lost the instructions a long time ago. :/
1- When there's trouble, do YOU know who to call?
2- Current owwies?
3- Tomorrow is my great vanishing for 24 hours adventure! Whatever shall you DO?!
4- Homemade honey garlic chicken, good idea or bad idea?
5- Will someone pay for my account on here? It's about to expire. I don't care enough to pay for it myself, haha. :P
1- Of course I do.
2- I slammed my foot into a doorframe, I thought I broke my toe, now I'm fairly certain it was just popped out of joint. Ow.
3- Oh, I think we all know the answer to this.
4- I'm still debating that.
5- Harr harr harr. ;P
Do you think it's rude for someone to answer their cell phone when you're at the table (ie having a meal)? Does context make it more or less acceptable - for example, if you were at a nice resteraunt vs grabbing Taco Bell? Does the importance of the call make it more or less acceptable?
What about texting?
I think it's rude to answer your phone at the table. I think if you have to answer it, you can take it outside. I do, although I am guilty of returning texts.
I was surfing facebook tonight and found an extreme right-wing Christian group known as the Westboro Baptist Church, apparently they're going to be picketing the funerals of all the VTech students who were killed because "they were in college which raises rebelliousness against God." They might also be known as the "God Hates F**s" (anti-gay slur) group. i was doing some reasing about them and watching some videos on Youtube...these people are nuts. Anyone heard of them or have an opinion?
Was tonight's Grey's Anatomy new?
