If your answer is "no" for both, you don't have to answer and take up space.

1) Have you ever published any written work in either a city-wide, state-wide, or nation-wide publication? What was the genre (short story, novel, article, etc.)?

2) Do you play the piano? If so, do you consider yourself an accomplished pianist? Have you won any competitions?

3) Do you think it's easier for someone to be an accomplished writer or an accomplished pianist?

1a. Ladies, how often do you look at and touch your breasts?
1b. Do you like them?
1c. When was the last time you checked for lumps?
Pretty often. I just realized it, too.
Yes, I like them.
Probably a few months ago, but considering I touch them so much, I'd probably notice if something was there.

2. What's the longest amount of time you've ever driven alone?
Probably half an hour. On Sunday morning, I have to drive for 2 and a half hours, the longest I've ever driven alone. I'm a bit nervous, for some reason. But I'm in the process of making mix tapes (my car has no CD player) for the trip.

3. Is it just me or has LJ been really boring today?

A couple more questions about childbirth

if you're doing the whole hospital birth thing, you should be aware that positions they force on you (or pressure you into if you want to put it that way) are notorious for causing tearing to begin with, as well as pressure to hurry up with labor (induction, coached pushing, pushing at all), not letting the body prepare itself adequately.

This makes me wonder about some things.

1) Do you think some C sections are rushed because the birth doesn't happen in the prescribed time?

2) Have any of you had bad experiences with pushy and insensitive medical staff?

3) What about doulas and midwives?

update into a question

Earlier today I asked about the "Very Special Guest" at the Bright Eyes show I was going to. It turned out to be LOU REED. How exciting is that?
I was very excited. I was expecting it to be some shitty Saddle Creek band. I called my dad like immediately after to tell him and he didn't believe me.

Anyone here know much of anything about bike racks for cars?

I have an '07 Yaris and my boyfriend has a '95 Taurus (though it doesn't have too much longer on it -- but any car he'd get to replace it would be a similar size/model). We don't go biking allll the time but when we do it is the most enormous pain in the ass to borrow my brother's duct-taped-together '96 Kia and cram them into the back seat with the wheels hitting against our heads.


Anything at all you could tell me about what type, where to buy them, etc? I don't even know where to begin. We want one that would be easy to take on and off, hold two bikes, and fit on at least one of our cars.

can semen SERIOUSLY boost metabolism, fight depression, clear acne, prevent aging, increase breast size, reduce the risk of breast cancer and all the other shit the rumors say it can do? 

HONESTLY, what are the actual health benefits of semen, whether it be swallowing it, getting it on your face/skin/whatever... or anything else you could think to do with it?

Cat eyes

I have a male cat and a female cat. The female cat has wide round eyes, almost bug like and the male has almond shaped eyes. Does this equal true for all cat's eyes? Can you tell the sex of a cat by his/her eyes? This is probably a really silly question but it just popped in my head the other day and no one seems to know...

EDIT: Thanks everyone for replying! I knew it was a pretty stupid thought and figured it wasn't true, lol. Just one of those weird thoughts that you can't shake.

1. I found an extra $300 in my bank account yesterday. My first thought was to take out all my money and shut the account, so they could not take it back. What would have been your first impulse? (It turned out my paycheque was just larger than expected).

2. Imagine this hypothetical scenario: A woman with beauty beyond compare (with flaming locks of auburn hair, ivory skin, and eyes of emerald green) wants to take your man away from you, just because she can. If she does this, you know you could never love again. Do you beg her to please not take your man? Your happiness depends on this woman. What would you do?

3a. Are you ever complimented by strangers? If yes, how do you react?
3b. Do strangers ever make an "Eww, yuck" face at you? If yes, how do you react?

4. Do you thrive on adoration from others? If no, why not?

Poll #991868 Zombie attack! Decisions, decisions, decisions

You're leading a group of 20 people. There's 2 safe havens within walking distance. The first route is completely safe, but the haven itself only holds 10 people maximum and it's in the middle of nowhere, meaning extra travel through dangerous areas for the rest of the group who can't fit. The second route can hold everybody, but the journey is considerably more risky, but the journey itself isn't as long. Which route do you take?

The first route. If I can guarrantee the safety of 10 people, then it's worth it. The rest can make their way to the other haven afterwards. It's important that half the group makes it
Route 2. Why put half the group through excess danger when the 21 of us can all make it to sanctuary with hopefully minimal losses

15 of you are left. The safe haven's good, but the food supply ran out. You'll have to venture out again. There's 4 groups of protective gear/weapons you can choose from. Which package of gear do you pick for your group?

Package 1 - 10 bats, 5 machetes, 1 gun
Package 2 - 7 machetes 3 bats, 2 guns
Package 3 - 8 guns, 2 machetes
Package 4 - 10 suits of full-body, lightweight, tear-proof protective armor, 5 bats

You all make it to the location where the food is. There's various barrels of food and you can take only one. Which barrel do you take for the group?

Barrel 1 - preserved foods, like jerky and dried fruits. Not much variety. It will last 3 months and have a shelf life of 6 months
Barrel 2 - canned goods of all kinds. Lots of variety. 1.5 months worth of food, but the shelf life is over a year and a half
Barrel 3 - military ration kits, old school. These are high-density but bland eats, good enough to substain you but not far from delicious. 4 months worth, with a shelf life of 3 years
Barrel 4 - loaded up with Twinkies, chips and other junk food. 2 months of eating, but it's not exactly the most healthy munchies. Shelf life of over a year
Barrel 5 & 6 - you get two barrels for this option. It's full of fresh vegetables and food. However, all of it is perishable. Enough for 400 meals. However, the shelf life is only 1 month before it begins to go bad

Lastly, one of your companions is a close friend, and he or she gets bitten on the hand by a zombie. Only you and this person know about it. Within 3 days, if the infection has spread, they will become a zombie themselves. As leader of the group, what do you do?

Let the friend stay with the group. I'll keep a close eye on him or her and if there's obvious physical changes, I'll banish my friend from the group
Apologize to my friend and kill him or her on the spot. It's the only safe thing to do
Practice some denial. Maybe the bite wasn't that deep and the infection won't spread. Hope and pray that nothing bad happens, but otherwise, do nothing
Banish my friend from the group. I can't risk the lives of the other 13 people. Sorry, buddy, but it's too much to sacrifice. I will give my friend a gun and a weapon so they have a chance of surviving on their own
The 2 of us leave the group. The rest can manage without us. I won't abandon my friend in their greatest hour of need
Tell the group what happened, and let one of them dispatch my friend. I don't have the heart to do the right thing
Using my machete, immediately hack off my friend's hand, and cauterize the wound and bandage it afterwards and hope that it works
Tie up my friend, leaving just the feet. We travel as normal and if my friend turns during these 3 days, he or she can't hurt anyone. If he or she doesn't turn, then they're not infected

Last night at a concert the girl sitting next to me started making cigarettes. She took out a package of tobacco and the papers and made like 10 of them. It struck me as very strange. I told my dad about it and he was like "Uhh are you sure it was tobacco?" and I definitely am. Thanks for thinking I'm an idiot.

Anyway, would you find this strange?

EDIT: I don't mean in general, I don't find that strange at all. I mean randomly at a concert, especially because she seemed to be having a lot of trouble with it.

daytime insomnia!

I worked overnight at my job last night (9:30 to 7:00 this morning) and came home, fell asleep around 8, and I STUPIDLY forgot to turn off the alarm on my cell phone, which went off at 10. It's 12:07 now and I can't get back to sleep--I've got the blinds and windows shut, so it's darker and quiet, took a Tylenol for the muscle aches from lack of sleep...what can I do to get some sleep? I have to go back tonight and work the same hours!

Gift ideas for college graduate

My cousin is graduating from college this weekend, and he mentioned that he's interested in possibly going to Europe sometime soon.  What are some cool gift ideas that I could get him that would get him excited about going to Europe? So far I've gotten "Europe Through The  Back Door" by Rick Steves, and a few bottles of Spanish and Italian wine (cuz he loves wine).  But I'd like to throw a few more things into the gift basket that would get him hyped about going overseas. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

A few weeks ago my cousin was supposed to get married. She called off the wedding the day before, after all the presents were sent and several people, including my parents, had traveled to attend the wedding.

She cancelled the wedding because when they went to pick up their rings before the rehearsal dinner, she found out her lame-ass fiance hadn't been paying on their jewelry account, like he'd said he'd been doing for several months.

I expected to get my gift to them, a Target gift card, returned to me. I assume that's proper procedure for cancelled weddings.

Today I got a thank you card from her that said "Thanks for the card and gift! We have decided to indefinitely postpone the wedding, but I got a new apartment and the gift card helped me get set up there!"

Is it wrong that I'm angry and think I should have gotten the gift card, a gift that was for their wedding, back?

I was just flicking through a children's book published in around 1990, and I noticed the word "retarded." Lots. As in, "the children were all retarded," with some rather eyebrow raising descriptions of these children's disabilities thrown in as well.

1. What do you think about the word "retarded"? Why do you think it's such a taboo (or at least non-PC) word, given that it simply means "delayed"? What about the word "retarded" as an insult? Do you think it's losing its original meaning somewhat? Is it a word you use in any context?

2. What about the word "gay" as an insult? I saw it used as a mild insult in a popular children's TV programme a couple of years ago, and was completely shocked to see that it had apparently become an accepted term. Do you think it's another word that's losing its connection to homosexuality or branching out into yet another meaning, or do you think it's a homosexual slur and should be discouraged? Do you ever use the word as an insult?

(You don't need to answer each of the questions in 1 & 2, they're just to give you some ideas on the subject.)

On the storyboard and in the collections part some of the photos are just a blank box with a big red X through it and they won't appear on screen when I play it back. Any idea what it is that is wrong and how to get around it?

Gender Role Education

At the mall where I work, there's a store by the name of Libby Lu. It's a store for little know the type. Fuzzy pink boas, picture frames, butterfly chairs, Webkinz, costume jewelry, the works.

This store offers "Hannah Montanna" parties. Basically, it involves giving the girls long blonde wigs, horrible makeup, and fake microphones.

Do you think that this is:

1) Harmless fun?
2) A terrible idea?
3) No strong feelings either way?

Me? I think it's a horrible idea! It teaches these girls that they aren't acceptable as they are. It shows them that we, as a society, value blonde, superficial, famous women more than we value people that actually flippin' matter. And personally, I don't find that idolizing, y'know, the bimbo daughter of a one-hit wonder country music artist whose one crowning achievement in life is 'Achey Brakey Heart' to be a good idea.

advice needed

How does one work well with a boss that asks for the following:
- only come to the boss in the case of an emergency
- come to the boss if someone is goofing up and it is effecting business performance.IE tattle on your co workers.
- will confront you if someone said "no they said you DIDNT mention xyz" and than when I supply the email that I did do XYZ, nothing is heard from said boss. IE - This boss has a tendency to talk big, deliver small. I find myself constantly documenting any discussion with him because it changes almost every 2 seconds it seems.
- never sits with the team
- starts things off with "let me tell you a story on how I did XYZ"

You should know I do love my job, the people I work with and my boss(out of work) seems very personable. I think he just has taken on to much so he is a bit insecure and stressed. I know I have a lot to learn from - but I just don't know how to "deal" with him in order to be successful - if that makes sense? Also, the tattling really fosters a not so good work ethic in my opinion.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Question for anyone who works for a bank.

When I deposit checks (just deposit, no cash back) do I need to sign them? I've always been told by my family that I don't, but whenever I goto my local branch (US Bank) they make me sign them, even putting them back through the drive up thingy and taking lots of time. I always thought you signed checks only if you were cashing them.

::Edit:: Obviously I'm an idiot and my father is just used to banking at a local bank where everyone knows him. Thanks :) I think I will use "For Deposit Only" w/ my Acct # from now on, though.

i just don't get it...

1. my job requires me to deal with my own personal cash register. i have the only key to it so of course no one else touches it...

today the assistant manager did an audit on all of our registers..something he said is a weekly thing, yet i've never seen it done before. he checks my register and i am over $10.01. he tells me he's going to write me up. WTF?? i am OVER ten bucks..meaning i have more money then i should and i'm going to get written up? the chick next to me was short $5.45 and she didn't get written up. btw, i was over 10 bucks cause a lady tipped me. we're not suppose to be tipped, but if it happens and the customer insists like crazy [which the lady did] then it's fine to take it as not to offend the customer.

do you see something wrong here? serious and non-serious answers are fine.

i'm just a little ticked off because i haven't been working there for that long and he wrote me up. bastard!

2. i'll be taking over payments on a 2004 VW beetle gls and my dad's mechanic insists that i don't get it because the transmission will mess up on me. it only has 34,500 miles on it and dude has never seen it. any experience with beetles anyone?

do you believe in soulmates? if yes, then in what sense? (friends are soulmates, a SO is a soulmate, etc.)

do you think that fate brings people together? or is it all action and persistence, or a combination of both?

1. Do you like oatmeal?
2. What sort of milk do you drink? Do you like other types?
3. Have you ever saved an abundance of cans and then turned them in for money? (My closet is getting so full)
4. If you have an interview with a woman that is considerably short--do you wear high heels or not?
5. Do you think when people ask "how was your weekend" they really just want to tell you about their weekend? Do you ever do this?!
6. If the keys on your keyboard displayed no letters would you still be able to type at the same pace?
7. Are you more likely to post one question or a series of questions? Also, do you often include your own answers?


*sigh* I need to ask this again, but for other characters this time. I'm looking for actors, who fit these descriptions. It's for script frenzy, where people try to write a script in a month (June). And lots of us are trying to pick actors to go with the characters we're creating, as it helps us visualise what's going on in our heads. Plus it's just fun. So I'd love some help.

I know these descriptions are quite vague, but seriously, chuck any and all suggestions at me. I'd prefer Australian or british actors though, but American or other is fine.

Is Fate spyware/malware?

If someone had it installed, would you recommend then to uninstall it? or just keep playing it?

ETA: Are there any other diablo2 clones other than fate that are fun and not as controversal?

Is it ever ok for the state to coerce to help others?

Suppose, hypothetically, there is a society where everyone has equal wealth. Through a series of events one person eventually acquires all the wealth but assume purely through a fair and just manner. Should the state be able to force the one rich person to pay to feed and house everyone else if he/she could do so for a tiny fraction of his/her wealth (which would not impact his/her quality of life in any way)? Say .000000000001% of his/her net wealth to do so for a year.

alpine slide

I remember some TQC member mentioning they fell off of an alpine slide. Does anyone remember who it was? I fell off one and posted about it here a year and 4 months ago, but this was within the past 2 or 3 months. I tried LJSeek

Do you know what an alpine slide is?

I've heard of it, but I'm not really sure what it is.

Did you answer this same poll question when I asked it 16 months ago?

2 - What have you done recently that you didn't know you could do?

3 - Do you participate in fandom? Which ones?

4 - Have you ordered MOO cards? What's the design like? What do you use them for?

1 - Long-haired, club-handed, musically talented coffee haters.

2 - I sung a solo, not expecting it to be very good, but it was fab. =D

3 - Yes. Mainly Harry Potter, Good Omens, Narnia, the Hannibal series and Dune at the moment.

4 - Yes. Text ones, with amusing quotes on them. Haven't received them yet, so I haven't done anything with them yet. Probably going to use them for bookmarks, though.

How old are you now, and at what age did you feel like you really reached adult-level maturity, or at least was no longer plagued by adolescent fears and insecurities? (Was there some sort of event or occurrence that brought it about?) Or maybe you feel like you're still going through that stage, or that no one ever really grows out of it?
