What's the worst thing you've done to your car (as in you were at fault)?

I was moving my mom's car earlier and managed to scrape half the paint off the rear door, as well as dent the wheel-well pretty bad.

Drinking Age [Apr. 22nd, 2007|12:32 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[teddybear115]
Why is it that we, in the US, cant drink until 21?

We are an adult at 18, can marry at 18 (actually maybe before 18), buy porn and adult products at 18, join the army at 18, take care of medical issues at 18 and smoke at 18 legally. The only thing you cant do at 18 is drink.

One person in a previous post mentioned that its 21 because alcohol affects (effects?) your body. Well so does smoking yet we can do that at 18.

Some have argued about responsibility/maturity level....well I would argue if you are not mature/responsibile enough to drink at 18 you arent responsibile enough to do everything else you can do at 18.

SO

1) What is so special about 21?

2) Why cant we go back to 18 like it used to be?

3) If you dont like 18, what age should it be legalized and why?

4) Should your other legal rights of being 18 change so once you reach X age you can do everything?

5) What age should X be?

6) Any other thoughts

[music |Massive Attack - Risingson]

I'm in the middle of hashing out the details of a book I'm never ever gonna write. So I wanted to see if I'm not alone:

1) Have you ever had an awesome idea for a book, but once you started to put it down you realized it would never be as good on paper as it was in your head, and stop?
I have, about 20,000,000,000 times.

2) If you have any book ideas now, what are they?
I have an idea for a young adult story about a girl who doesn't know if she can measure up to her best friend, but then the best friend betrays their group of friends and she realizes that she had nothing to worry about at all.

3) Do you have a fictional character floating around your head that you'd like to write a story about, but don't have a plot that fits them?
I have this punk kid with maroon hair named Ranelli I tried sticking in a book once, but he didn't mesh well with the other characters. His mom throws batteries at him when he breaks stuff and he likes listening to the Sex Pistols except he can never remember the name of the band.

These are probably the most random questions ever but no one's home and I don't know who else to ask at 4:04 in the morning. Recently, about an hour or two ago I was beat up on the subway and my phone was stolen. I'm okay, but I have a few questions.

1.) Is a broken nose an immediate medical issue? I'm not sure if it's broken, but my nose is swollen and hurts, a lot.

2.) I might have hit my head, but I'm not sure. I had been drinking a little, and am still a little intoxicated, so I don't know what the signs of a concussion are and if I should be worried. What does a concussion feel like?

3.) Is there any way I can get this crazy bitch in trouble? There were a few witnesses but I don't really remember what she looks like.

Has anyone here moved from where they've lived most of their life in the USA to elsewhere in the country where they didn't know anybody (excluding going to college)?

Did it work out well? Would you recommend it if you're not happy with the area you grew up in?

How did you go about the move? Did you find a place to live, move, then find a job? Or did you try to secure a job then move? How did you chose where to go?

I've grown in up in Florida, which I don't like due to the heat, snowbirds, tourists, and hurricanes. I went to college in Jacksonville, which was nice. I hate the Orlando and Palm Beach / Lauderdale / Miami area because of how congested it was. Any personal recommendations outside of Florida but still in the USA based on that?

Thanks!

How often do you do nice things for selfish reasons?
I was dogsitting for a friend this weekend and got this terrible craving for brownie batter. So I made them brownies to eat when they get back. I really had no desire to make anyone brownies for any reason nor to do anything particularly nice for these particular people, but I would have felt wasteful if I bought brownie mix, ate some of the batter, and threw the rest away. Like, 75% of the nice things I ever do are for reasons similar to this. It's not that I totally loathe doing the nice thing for them, but I never would have bothered going out of my way to do Nice Thing X if I hadn't already had something else in mind.

Does it degrade the quality of the good deed if it's done for a less-than-selfless (though obviously not outright evil) reason?
I'm not sure, so I'm asking you. I only mention my true reasons for doing nice things for people about half the time. They never seem to mind. Then again if they did they probably wouldn't tell me for fear of sounding ungrateful/rude.

2) What do you think is a 'normal' age to start having sex? At what age does it become 'weird' to have not had sex yet?

3) Should television programs address the issue of protection and birth control?  (To clairfy a bit, I mean television programs intended for entertainment. There's usually a lot of sex on those but rarely do we see the characters pull out a condom or mention birth control unless it's meant to further the plot or make a point).

4) Do you believe aesxuality is a real orientation? (I'm aware that 'asexual' doesn't really mean to be without a sex drive but I'm pretty sure you all know what I'm asking.) Are any of you asexual?

I would like to go out on my porch and enjoy the day, but there's not a 10 second span when an effing bee isnt buzzing about.

2. You're making something from a really good batter... How much of the finished product could you make with all of the batter you just ate?

3. Do you have seasonal allergies? Don't they suck? What do you take for it?

4. Have you ever played the movie game? Do you ever study IMDB for hours in preparation for it?

5. If you play disc golf, how many discs do you have? What brand and type are they? Are you good?

i am a relatively skinny girl (i haven't weighed myself in months, but i'm probably 120-125 lbs. and i'm about 5'6"-5'7") and i get sassed at it A LOT.

i've always been skinny and sometimes my friends or my extended family members will sass me about it. i've been called every "skinny minnie" "lets put rocks in your shoes so you don't blow away in a strong wind" "you better wear some black clothes because we can see right through you" "toothpick" etc etc etc. it's annoying. really, really freakin' annoying. there's nothing i can do to change how i was made and i even have a little bit of anxiety about it. i am 99.999999% happy/comfortable/in love with/satisfied with my body, but sometimes i think i'm too skinny and even if i tried, i could not gain weight if i tried.

so, when someone sasses me about being skinny, how should i respond? if i say something in response (which is rare), i usually say "oh, my metabolism does that to me", but i don't really think that's a fair/proper response.

help me!

Accents and blind dates [Apr. 22nd, 2007|04:07 pm]

[mood |curiouscurious]

1. For English-speakers not from the United States:
What does an American (meaning US) accent sound like to you? What connotations does it have? For example, a British accent of *any* kind sounds "educated" to some Americans. Do most people you know distinguish between different regional American accents? Can you imitate an American accent? Do actors or comedians from your country often imitate American accents? What kinds of characters usually have American accents?

2. I'm going on a blind date a friend set up for me next Friday. Do you have any tips for minimizing ackwardness, in terms of places to go, topics to avoid, expectations not to have, etc.? Is a group date or taking him along when I go out with my regular clique a good idea?

3. My mom claims that it generally takes about half as long to get over someone as the time you two were together. In your experience, has this been true?

4. Do you think matchmaking for friends is a good idea? Under what conditions would it be bad or good? Has a friend ever set you up with someone? Did you ask them to? How did you feel about it? Did your friend make a good choice? How did your blind date feel about the whole thing? Have you ever set someone up? How did it work out?

are there certain people who you talk to and then later think "man, i'm so boring!"?
my parents visited today and throughout it i kept thinking "wow, i sound really boring", because i cant talk to them about anything interesting because it's basically a taboo.

do you have any friends that you feel sorry for occasionally cos they are telling the most boring story ever but it's supposed to be funny?

Now, is the splotchyness something that happens all the time?
I heard somebody say that if you exfoliate then it won’t get splotchy. Now, is that before or after the tan? Or does it even work?

I guess I’m just asking for any tips that anyone has about spray-on tans.

The other night, I found in my handbag collection a pretty chinese brocade handbag. Inside, was a silver foil packet - it looked like it was meant to come together. I opened the packet, and inside was about 40 or so tea bags. I have no idea where this came from or what flavour this tea is.

The little pull tab on the bag is green and reads "KTE - Kanchanjangha Nepal Organic Tea". Googling found me the company, but there are no product lists on the site. The tea smells of mint and something else, possibly clove. It reminds me of the smell of an unlit menthol cigarette. I brewed the tea, and it tasted horrible. Very bitter, and not at all tasting of mint.

So, internets, tell me - what the hell flavour is this tea? The company seems to make green tea (among others) and it says it tastes a bit like Darjeeling. I have no idea what that tastes like. What smells of mint but doesn't taste of it?

Sorry, this is driving me nuts.

Below the cut is my list of bands I still listen to. Can anyone reccomend any bands that you'd think I'd like? I only have a few bands, now, and I want a bigger collection to chose from. :-\

I’m getting my hair cut in a weeks time, and I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with it. I’m seriously considering something like this or this . My only concern is: what will it look like when it isn’t properly styled, if I just let it flop down, and put the minimum of styling products into it, how would that look? I ask because where I work is, while not exactly conservative, not really the kind of place I could wear that hair at. I just need to know if I could comb it down into something a little less startling. Could anyone here who has or has had hair like that post a pic or two of what it looks like ‘normally’? Also, just out of interest, how long does it take to do every morning? (I like my sleep…:P)

EDIT: to clarify: I work weekends, so I would be getting the most out of this hairstyle for five days out of every seven.

Thanks to anyone who can help. :) (This part of the question in x-posted to madradhair)

And, totally unrelated: what song is so bad/irritating it actually causes you pain to listen to it? For me it’s Hinder’s ‘Lips of and Angel’. I might not have hated it so much, but it seemed like every radio station in NZ played it twice an hour for months on end.

And some of the sentences in my history textbook don't even make sense.

ii. I got a new dress this weekend and it's really colorful. Mom wants to get laundry detergent that will help prevent colors from fading in the wash before we wash it. The majority of the dress is dark blue but it has some bright greens and pinks on it. Suggestions? Bonus points if it preserves bright colors and is hypoallergenic/recommended for sensitive skin.

1. How do you deal with awkward crushes on friends? And I don't mean "what should I do?" but "what do/have you done?" Especially crushes that are of the hopeless variety - where you're crazy about them, and they have some idea, but it's never going to happen. Let's say there's an 11 year difference between you, they're in a very cute, very committed relationship, and they think of you as a really good friend and probably little sister.

all hypothetically, of course.

2. Have any good stories about awkward crushes on your friends, or ones your friends had on you? Or just awkward stories in general?

3. What one hit wonder of the 90s makes you thank everything holy that the 90s are over?

What make/model of car do you drive?
What do you like about it?
What do you dislike about it?
What color is it?

Is this the car you want to drive? If not, what would you prefer to drive? (Realistically....)

I am trying to juggle 2 job this summer. nothing serious, one at the gap, and one at a restaurant. the only problem is, i have NO idea how to arrange my schedules, or what to list as my availability for both places. another complicating factor -- i have about 3-5 doctors appointments a week on an ongoing basis.

have you ever had 2 hourly jobs that you had to manage? any advice or experiances?

i have an even bigger problem than my hamburger scare from earlier.  i have spiders in my apartment.  most are wolf spiders.  the others look exactly like wolf spiders, but they are black and just a tad bigger.  i've lived here for almost four years and see them every once in a while.  maybe it's just my paranoia, but it seems like there are more this spring.  i have one living under the carpet in a corner of my room.  i've tried everything to coax it out, but nothing has worked.  

so anyway, i've googled and such about how to get rid of spiders.  everything just says to keep things clean, use screens on doors and windows, etc.  my apartment is immaculate, there are screens on all the windows, i dispose of any spiders i find..but i still have spiders.  =[  the little spiders aren't so creepy, but the wolf spiders are disgusting.

what can i do to get rid of these damn spiders?  anything to prevent them?  anything to trap/kill them?

edit: i'm looking for something maybe like the sugar + baking soda trick for ants.  would that work for spiders?  is there a spider equivalent?

edit number two: don't google for a picture of wolf spiders.  and if you do, i'm not responsible for mental trauma or nightmares.

Hi guys.
The topic under the cut is very serious and upsetting. So this is why I cut it. It is about suicide so may be upsetting to some.
