Lightbulb Jokes

1.  Can you think of a lightbulb joke that applies to one of your (religious/political/socio-economic...) labels?
2.  Do you find it funny?  Do other jokes about that label bother you?
3.  What's your favourite lightbulb joke?

Most people I know don't seem to mind hearing the "how many goths/feminists/tax-collectors does it take..." jokes about themselves even if they're likely to be offended by other jokes.  I want to know if this feeling is shared tqc-world-wide.  I'm sorry in advance if anybody here feels that they are totally without labels.

sending a money order online

I remember a long time ago, I used an online money order service to pay for an eBay auction. I have no recollection of what that service/site was. I seem to remember it being Western Union, but the site doesn't appear to offer that service any more. Can anyone recommend to me any websites I can use to reliably send a money order to an address in the United States?

Note: I do not live in the United States.

Are you one of multiples?

Do you know any? What are they called? Are their personalities Similar or not?

no, but im fascinated by the whole subject for some reason.
One of my best friends is a non identical twin, Adrienne. Her and her sister Pippa aren't similar at all. Adi is really out going and couldn't be bothered with school so much. Pippa is really studious and rather preppy.
Another best friend Alex has a non identical twin Nico and they are so so so very different. Alex is a beer guzzling steak lover. Nico's favourite thing to do is yoga, and he only eats organic. Though they're so different they both have an obvious connection though. I think it must be great to have twin.</>

It probably depends on the type of compliment but something like, "You're beautiful" says Bob.

And most of the time I skimped too much on the others so I couldn't even get all the frosting on the last one, and I'd have to eat it with my fingers instead. Which is also good.

For the multilingual

1. What do you feel is the most effective way to learn a second language? Especially languages that are not written in roman characters.

I'm worried about traditional school classes since they seem to focus more on getting you to pass the course rather than knowing the language enough to speak with a native. (Because after three years of Spanish, I definitely was never able to.)

2. Any tips on what to do when studying a language to keep up with it and keep motivated in general? What helps make a second language "click" for you?

skydiving

I plan on going skydiving before the end of the year. I've told my dad about it and I have suggested he come too. However he does not want to go and has told me many times how stupid it is, and how many things could go wrong, and how it's more risky than other things.

1. So, should I tell him right before I go, or should I tell him after I've already gone, or should I not tell him at all?

2. Have you ever been skydiving? Was it worth the risk?

The bank has been holding ~9 dollars from me for the past few weeks. My checkings account says "Balance: $400.00" and "Available Balance: $390.68."

What is your opinion of the situation? How would you feel if you were the girlfriend?

Travel Assistance Needed

We are about to go on a trip to France, Monaco, Italy, Greece and Turkey and I need your help. (Here's where we're going: http://cruise-travel.tauck.com/tours/europe-tours/mediterranean-tours/monte-carlo-cruise-mae-2007)


Question #1: I am a strict vegetarian - and by that I mean a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I consider myself *strict* because I not only do not eat meat in any form, I also do not eat anything cooked with any lard or any animal stock, or any food that that might have touched any animal substance. (Please, the purpose of this post is not to debate the definition of vegetarian.)

I would like to be able to explain this dietary limitation during our trip, using the native language of each destination. Even if I have to hand them a piece of paper with it written out, I would like to respect the languages of the places to which I am traveling by communicating with them in their native tongue - or whatever is the dominant language.

Can anybody help?


Question #2: Being an obnoxious American, I am very keely aware that we are not in great favor in many places right now, and I also realize that our customs are vastly different from those places we will be visiting.

Can anybody give any cultural tips or suggestions (i.e., in Greek culture XYZ is considered offensive; in Turkey it is bad for for women to dress in ABC manner; etc.)? I am especially concerned about Turkey. Our travel agent has provided absolutely no guidance, and I haven't been able to find a good source for cultural etiquette.


Thanks!

Making a difference to your community.

Should active, physician-assisted euthanasia be legal?

If a relative you loved dearly decided they wanted to die and per a new law were now allowed to have themselves killed off, would you agree with it? Would you be sad, or would you be happy for them?

Example:
Should the starving people in Africa be killed off due to the pain they face each day, and to help funds coming in to Africa take better effect?

Suppose you were gay and in a domestic partnership for 20+ years (this would be very rare, as promiscuity is common in this community) and suddenly your partner was killed off per an agreement between lawmakers and their physician. You felt this person was your soulmate. How would you react?

NCO Financial keeps calling us at work looking for someone named Tamika Middleton. The former manager was a misogynist racist asshole and the current manager has never heard of someone named Tamika so we're sure she's never worked here. We're a pretty small, one-year-old place; we'd know.

Despite repeatedly asking to be taken off their list and reminding them that they have the wrong number, NCO Financial continues to call.

My question is, what deliciously wonderful thing should I do next time they call? We've already tried talking to the employees, the supervisor, yadda yadda. Clearly it's not working. I want something that will either completely solve the problem, or at least amuse the hell out of us.


[EDIT] And I can't say Tamika's dead, 'cause I've heard one can get in a big deal of trouble for that.

Inspired by coflower's question -

1 - If you were adopted, under what circumstances did it happen?

I mean to say, were you adopted by a family member, adopted by one of your parent's partners, adopted from the far reaches of the Amazon...?

2 - Do people suspect you were adopted?

3 - Do your adoptive parents or biological parents have any other kids? Biological or adopted?

4 - What do you know about your birth parents?

5 - Would you adopt?

6 - Would you try to have your children naturally first?


~~~

1 - My parents lived in New Zealand, but my Mum was South African and after a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy, they decided to adopt me from South Africa.

2 - Never.

3 - Yes, I have an older brother. My birth mother has other kids, I dunno how many.

4 - My birthmother's name and the city she lives in. I know nothing about my birth father. I'm not sure my birthmother even knows who he is.

5 - Yes.

6 - I'm not sure. I might adopt some and have some naturally.

3. I went to the campus health clinic today: neither my UT nor my ears are infected, when I thought they were. So, why do I have a fever? What's actually infected? Is the only cure more cowbell?

4. Were you private or religious schooled?

Cell phone charger question...

First I had a Verizon lg phone, and the charger was working fine.  Later on someone broke the screen on my phone (it's a long story) so I had to use that and dial numbers, etc.  Then my phone charger stopped working.  I bought a new one, same model, and it was working at first, then it wouldn't work on my phone (I tried it on another person's phone with the same model and the new charger wouldn't work either.

So I now have a new phone, it's a Verizon lg but a newer model.  I charged the phone for about an hour and I saw only 2 bars of battery.  The battery life isn't very long, and I just discovered that the charger will only work in certain positions, which is what happened to my other two chargers before they didn't work.

Does anyone else have this problem with phone chargers? Is there a way to not let this happen?

1. Hey! I was wondering for any of you that have children that are either yours, or your step kids, or kids that you nanny for, babysit all the time for, have some form of mental or physical dissability or problem?

Things that tipped you off that that may be an issue.. or that it was something beyond the fact that hey, they're 2, 3, 4 and that's just how kids are?

Inspired by all the questions about acid today

I was watching PBS last night and American Experience was on and it was about the summer of love at Haight & Ashbury in San Fransisco. They were talking about how the hippies truly thought that acid would allow them to create a new way of living.

It reminded me of this book I read sometime when I was in junior high (1994 - 1997), but I believe it was written sometime during the 60s or 70s. I think it's a pretty famous book. It was about this teenager who used acid and had a bad trip and saw spiders, I believe, and then I think he jumped out the window. I think this book also involved a friend of this teenager who tried to "save" him but failed.

Anyone know what book I'm remembering?

Is it me, or have drugs like acid and shrooms become more popular (again) in the past couple years?

Okay well I know shrooms have still been popular... but when I was in high school, I felt like people would smoke pot, snort coke or take ecstasy, then I go to college and I feel like everyone's doing acid all of a sudden.

Ghost apartments

I've started looking for apartments back home because I don't want to move back in with my parents after I graduate. Basically the only apartment complex I've found in the city that sounds decent (read: not ridiculously noisy and also affordable but not stark white or blah-looking) is the apartment complex my grandparents lived in. They have both since died. The apartment has been renovated by then so it's probably hardly recognizable from the inside. However, I feel sort of weird about the possibility of living there.

Would you be too depressed to live in a place where your deceased grandparents had lived?

I just imagine myself walking down the halls and thinking about them all the time.

Sorry if this seems like a stupid question. It is actually legitimate.

1. Can someone be extremely independent without seeming too self absorbed? I don't know if I'm wording this right but it's difficult. Like, where's the line between being independent and being SO independent that you're fine without close friends, an SO, etc.
1a. If you know someone like this, do you think they could really be this independent or are they just faking it?

2. When skimming through entries, does anyone else see ETA: and then think people are posting about ETA or is that just me? Edit: Guess not... Damn Spanish civ & culture for reprogramming my brain.

3. Have you tried SoBe's LifeWater? I'm addicted to it I think.

4. Where did you go the last time you went out to eat?

5. Do you use Rich text or HTML box to write your posts in?

Would you rather get a matching//paired tattoo with your best friend or your lifelong SO?

What would you get if you did with your best friend?
With your SO?



I don't know if I would with a SO, but my best friend and I decided today that on her 18th birthday, we're going to both get the Chinese character for "sisterhood" on our feet.

any personal experience?

psh seems like all of my stuff is falling to crap.

what kind of things would make a car OUT OF NOWHERE (no accident or anything like that) suddenly not turn well.. i went to drive tonight and it was damn near impossible to turn the wheel. i drove it yesterday all day long and it was fine. and yes all fluids are filled to the right levels etc etc. its a 2001 camry if that makes a difference.

(and yes im calling a mechanic tomorrow.. im just curious as to what types of things may be wrong)

As far as vaginas go is there such a thing as "too big?" And are we talking length or width?
If you are female, have you ever measured the depth of your vagina?
If you are a male currently having sex with a female, would you consider her vagina short, long, or average?
nvm

food on planes?

Can you take food through airport security check points/onto planes? I'm going to visit my fiance while he is working in a different state, and I wanted to bring him cookies. But I don't want to get to the airport and find out that I have to throw them all away. Is there some bullshit law about that now? Thank you.

What do you personally think is the difference between the meanings of the words "person" and "human"? (Is there a difference?)

I got confused because lately some people have been calling animals "people" (and not in the sense of "I love my dog so much I think of him as a human")

Two of my closest friends are seeing my two favorite bands at this very moment. I introduced them to both bands and now they love them.
So do you think I have the right to be a little bit jealous/angry that they are seeing them and didn't really try too hard to get me a ticket? Because at the moment, I'm kind of seething with anger and jealousy.

My mother's 2nd graders are doing a Flat Stanley unit. So they sent Flat Stanleys to everyone for them to draw clothes on (appropriate for the climate) and then take around to landmarks in their city to take pictures with.

If someone sent you a Flat Stanley to do this project with, how would you dress him and where would you take him in your city?

Have you ever dated someone who lived with someone you didn't get along with? How did that work out?

What do you love about your country? (And I mean REALLY love..not sarcastic-really-meaning-hate love)

*me* My boyfriend is living with a racist next year and if he is really loud about his feelings around me I can tell we won't get along.

I LOVE that I can get on the road and travel to see people anywhere in this country without being stopped at the borders or worried about military lining the streets questioning my every move.

1 - In what way do you adhere to a stereotype?
2 - In what way to you defy a stereotype?
3 - Do you hate stereotypes?

And random question inspired by a discussion I had the other day -

4 - Do you hate paedophiles?

~~~~

1 - I wear glasses and like to read.
2 - I'm a teenager but don't try to prove my maturity by slamming doors and acting like a child.
3 - No, just people who judge others based solely on that fact. Stereotypes themselves are a good source of comedy. =D

4 - No. I think there's got to be paedophiles out there who don't act on their desires, and I have nothing against those individuals. But a friend of mine's cousin had a bad experience so now m friend has absolutely no sympathy for paedophiles. So I was wondering what everyone else's opinion is.

ETA: What I mean is I don't hate paedophiles as a blanket statement, but I hate people that take advantage of children. Of course, my opinion may change when I have children.

My answers:

2. He lived, g'damnit! He's gotta live!

3. Some woman on the subway called me a "crazy cracker" and slapped my arm because my poster I had sticking out of my bag touched her. And I said, "It's just a poster. I didn't mean to hurt you," And she went from bitchy to ghetto in .001 seconds. It was rush hour on the express train, rather crowded and she got all dramatized with my poster touching her arm.

two Christianity questions

1) If someone only knew the English language and wanted to read the Christian Bible for the first time, what version would you recommend they read?

2) In the "Left Behind" series, millions of people disappear simultaneously including from cars being driven and planes being flown, leaving behind everything from clothing to dental fillings to pacemakers. What I don't understand is if such an even would occur, why wouldn't there be a sudden massive conversion to Christianity? On what grounds would you argue that event doesn't prove God's existance? "Nah, no way that was the prophesized Rapture. I'm sure there was a scientific explanation. Mass alien abduction or interdimensional shift maybe." Would you remain unconvinced?

How would I go about helping my cat learn to respond to her name better?

I've had her for almost a year now. I talk to her whenever she's around, she can hear just fine. Her name is Q, but since I know cats seem to respond best to names with "ee" sounds, I've been calling her Q-ey for the past four or five months. She just doesn't respond when I call her. Even "kitty kitty" has mixed results. I've never had an issue with teaching any of my other cats their names, within a month or so they're very responsive. Are there any techniques out there I should try, or am I just gonna have to work with her more?

(I'll probably end up posting this in cat_lovers, I just want to see what you guys think.)

When's the last time you told someone you had a crush on them?
Did s/he like you back?

If yes, are you in a relationship now?
If no, are you still friends? Did you need space to deal with the rejection, or were you OK with it right away?

Should I watch Quills or High Plains Drifter tonight? Joaquin Phoenix shirtless or Clint Eastwood in his prime...what a choice :)

Who is your favorite Law and Order detective (out of all the series)?

Although I have soft spots for the SVU detectives (especially Benson, Stabler, and Munch), I have to say my favorite as far as detective skills go is Robert Goren from Criminal Intent. He's like Sherlock Holmes crossed with Columbo.
