Have you ever had any random/strange sudden urges? Today I wanted to find out what would happen if I stuck my finger thru my plastic fan while it was on...luckily I still have my finger. And before when I was younger, I wanted to know what it felt like to get eletrocuted, so I eletrocuted myself. LOL.

Am I the only one that feels this way?

ok, TQC, let's get dirty;

1) do you like/partake in phone sex?
2) do you like/partake in cyber sex?
3) do you like/partake in (real life) sex?

how would you rate these as most to least satisfying? 3-2-1? 3-1-2? 1-3-2? 1-2-3?

Would you take this job under the circumstances I describe below?

I went to apply to a job at a tattoo parlor as a receptionist, since it sounded like it could be a lot of fun and I really need a new job. So I go up there, do the app and make myself look absolutely stupid (I admittedly don't read the header of the application and screw the whole thing up, which another employee had to go point out loudly). But I really want this job still and remember the manager listed a IM name to contact him at. So I talk to him the next day, saying how I didn't portray myself well and so on. He asks me to "prove I'm not a shy prude" and when I say I've never done anything all that wild or rebellious, he gets into asking me if I'm a virgin and what, if anything, I've done with someone before. Eventually he suggests a "trade" for the tattoo I do want to get sometime soon. After I refuse to consider it, he seems to...normalize.

So, I'm very unsure what to do if I am offered the job in the end. I'd like to think he was just screwing around with me to see if I could handle it. And I'd still really like this job, I'm just not sure if I'd have someone leering at me all the time or what. Maybe everything would be fine and I'd be missing out on a cool job. Would you take the job?

I go to a top ranked university but I don't even know how I got here. I take a lot of different classes that I like but I have no idea what I am going to do after I graduate. on some days I swear that I want to go to law school, other days I want to get my PhD in Political Science, and on other days I want to just do Teach for America so that I have a ready made career within 2 years. I honestly have no clue, every week I change my mind. Do any of you feel the same way? do you get exhausted just thinking about all taking the GRE or LSAT? do you ever just want to go on a five year cruise after graduation?

and by the way, do people invovled in student government at your school annoy you as much as the ones at my school annoy me?

what's student government like at your school? are there political slates? and do you know of any fun gossip or drama that goes down?

Situation: You are stopped at the intersection of a small suburban street and a major road, you will be turning right, some time, when/if the traffic lets up. It is a stop sign for you, nothing for them. The major road is 4 lanes. Traffic on this road is fast and cranky since it is afternoon rushhour- everyone is going at least 80kmh (convert it yourself you nonmetric bastards!) and not paying attention.
On the other side of the major road from you is a house. As you watch, a child wearing nothing but a diaper toddles down the driveway towards the road. No parent in sight. The kid gets to the edge of the road and is giggling and waving at cars as they speed past. No one sees it. Now it's at the curb. Cars honk but don't stop. In seconds it will be ON the road and in the traffic and then obviously splattered across the pavement.  You are alone in your car.
What would you do?

What are some gossipy, groupie-action packed band biographies? I just love stories of excess and chaos.

I've already read "Hammer of the Gods", "I'm with the Band", and "The Dirt: The Motley Crue Story". I also read "Saucerful of Secrets", which didn't have a lot of groupie stories, but was good masturbation material nonetheless (lots of pictures).

My semester has ended & I've already been home for about a week doing everything but working. My parents are fed up and so am I (I'm broke!).

So, I had many positions set up by the end of this semester. But now I have a few basic questions..

I'm making phone calls today, who should I ask to talk to?
-I applied to a few big business (cashiering jobs, etc) and already turned in applications. I want to follow up with them. Should I talk to a manager or human resources?
I really want to be there in person, but it's not possible today.


Also,

I applied, was hired (I believe), took a drug test for one company already and haven't heard back from them. What should I say if when I call them they say that I failed my drug test? (A little word-y, sorry)


Seriously, I'm worried. My dad kind of got me this job, although he is not currently working there, everyone knows I've applied and it could be interesting if I did fail.

Have you ever failed a drug test?

I am hoping that there are some camera geeks who can help me out.

I am looking to upgrade to a DSLR soon. Canon more than likely. Don't try to talk me into anything else, I am a Canon diehard, right or wrong.

I am asking for advice/opinions on lenses.

What 2 or 3 lenses would you think would be essential for a photographer? I take pics of lots of things, but mostly landscapes, macro shots and people. (Not pro portraits, just candids and friendly get togethers)

Many thanks in advance.

Honest Opinion Time.

1.) Which of the following makes more sense?
**FYI.**
Tarpon is 30 minutes north of me.
Tampa Road/19 is 20 minutes north of me.
Barn is 15-20 minutes south of me.
Boy is a counselor type person for special needs kids, and we're taking one of his clients out to see my horse today (of course this was not cleared with me first, it was just assumed that it would be okay, and I'm a nice person and more or less had to agree to avoid arguing with him).

A.) Driving all the way to Tarpon to drop boy off, so he can pick Michael up, to then come pick me up AT MY HOUSE to then go to the barn. (okay, so we'd only be taking one vehicle at a time. but, I'm also doing 2x the driving he is, so the whole gas-price-thing kinda negates itself there).

B.) Driving straight to Michael's house from my house (tampa road/19), picking him up, and going to the barn. (Less driving done all the way around)

C.) Driving all the way to Tarpon, both of us getting in his car (thus leaving mine at his house), then picking Michael up, then going to the barn.

or, hell, if you have a better idea... mostly I just don't want to drive all the way to fucking Tarpon today if I don't have to. And now that I think about it, none of them really sound all that great.




2.) Also, is it wrong of me to be irritated by the fact that he suggested to Michael, who is 17 and special needs (with what, I have no damn idea) about going to the barn to see MY horse, without clearing it with me first?

3.) How would you have done it? [click]

Ebay! [May. 30th, 2007|10:37 am]

[ex_lucindrie11]
I ordered something on Ebay on May 14th. I got about six emails confirming everything, and it was good. Yesterday (May 29th) I got sick of waiting for it like a good little girl and called the number they had listed in the auction to ask where the hell my item was. They claimed they had "no idea" why it hadn't shipped yet, claimed it was odd, and said they'd ship it out immediately with 3 day shipping for no additional cost.

Yeah, it took them three weeks, but I figured, "Hey, it's no big deal, shit happens. I just didn't want to get hosed totally".

Even though I checked their feedback before I purchased, I checked again to see more recent stuff after I called. Ebay says their positive feedback score is 96.9, and they have 131544 positive feedbacks. A few disgruntled EBayers in scores of thousands doesn't bother me, but I just now noticed that a lot of people have stated that they experienced the same thing I described as above. One person posted yesterday, in fact, with "shipped slow, asked and they finally shipped with 3rd day air at no cost. I'm satisfied."

Should I give them neutral or negative feedback, since it's clear there's something not kosher and others should be aware of that? Or should I just give them good feedback, since they took care of the issue when I finally bugged them about it?

Based on personal experiences:

You are a dietary aide in a nursing home. You have 14 tables (each with 3-4 people) that you need to serve appetizers, milk (three different kinds), juice (five different kinds), pour water (with ice), and give coffee. Many of these people will order one milk, two juices, get coffee, and they all get ice water. Everyone orders an appetizer as well.

Your boss has recently implemented a new rule stating that water cannot be poured until 5:50. Appetizers cannot be served until 5:50, and coffee cannot be made until 5:30 and cannot be poured until 6:00. Dinner starts at 6:00. You have no help whatsoever, and since dinner starts at 6:00 you must have every juice, appetizer, milk, and water down before the first resident enters the dining hall. If not, there's a very good chance a resident will report you and you could lose your job.

Also, now that these new rules are being enforced, you have an hour-long break on your hands before 5:50.

Now here are my questions:

1. Do you go start serving appetizers and drinks before 5:50 so that you'll have everything ready before 6:00?
2. Do you use any other techniques to get the job done before 6:00?
3. Or do simply start serving at 5:50 and hope no resident reports you for not finishing on time?

2) how old were you
3) if you were older(like in your teens or older) was it seriously intense pain?

A girl that works with me asked for a raise yesterday. She's a pretty unreliable and half-assed employee so she was told no. But that's not what matters.

Her reason for wanting a raise was that gas prices are going up and it's costing her more to drive to and from work. Do you think that's a just reason to ask for a raise? This isn't some serious careeeer or anything.. sort of a gourmet food shop. We don't have benefits or whatnot. She only works four days a week and shows up a few hours late to those anyways.

So. Even if she was just a awesome model employee, would it still be a just reason to ask for a raise? Please explain why/why not.

Oh and my answer is no because she 1. chose to work here knowing how far away it is, 2. this isn't a permanent cost-of-living/inflation issue, and 3. drives a goddamn 8-cylinder truck everywhere despite only using it for basic day-to-day purposes (ie she doesn't haul things, race, or off-road).

So I'm supposed to go to jury duty tomorrow. I was all set to do my civic duty until I mentioned it to my future mother-in-law who proclaimed, "I never go to jury duty!" Since then, a whole new world of malfeasance has been opened to me...
According to her, since they have no way of knowing if you ever received the letter (because it's not like you sign for it or anything), they can't really get too upset if you don't show.

Should I go?
What will happen to me if I don't?
Will the guilt of not showing up eat away at my soul for the rest of eternity?
Seriously, what can/will they do to me if I don't go?


EDIT: Does it change your answer to know that I work at a high school and I'm off for the summer and part of me is terrified that I'll get chosen and I'll have to be sequestered for the entirety of my summer vacation?

1. How soon do you think it will be until we have a major outbreak of some deadly disease like TB or bird flu?

2. Do you think an outbreak will eventually occur or do you think it's just the media desperate for a story?

3. How much does it scare you that this man who knew he had drug resistant TB decided to take two trans-atlantic flights knowing he could expose others to a very deadly disease?

1. No clue, I'd say in the next decade something might happen with the bird flu or at least some common disease that is now resistant to current medications.

2. Yes, I really, really hate how the media has handled everything. The moment they didn't get their giant story on the bird flu they dropped the entire thing and it has led a lot of people to think that it's no longer a threat. Also it always pisses me off how drug resistant TB has been ignored until now.

3. A lot. That man was all types of stupid, and it terrifies me that someone would be willing to stick themselves in an enclosed environment, in close contact with other people when they know they have any sort of TB.

Someone said this to a friend of mine:

Personally, I don't find being mean fun. I think it's... mean. I don't like it when people are mean to me, so I am not mean, even if I disagree with things they do or say (political, religious, sexuality, etc).

Are my friend and I in the minority? Do you find being mean to be fun? Do you think most people do? Or is the person who said this mis-guided and he is actually in the minority?

Does your vote change if I say that the meanness in question was in reference to people with alternate sexualities, and "furries"?

And since I'm linking to one side of this story, here's another.

In all seriousness, even if you don't like what Ken Ham has done here, would you go? I think I would if it weren't so far away from where I live.

These are all aimed at people who either have tattoos, or just know more about them than me. :)

So after much changing of my mind of what tattoo I want, I'm ready to go do it! Before I rush off to the first tattoo place I find though, questions for you darling ones.

1- On average, how much would a 1-2 inch square tattoo cost? I know different places would charge differently, so what are some lower and higher end prices you've seen, if they differ a lot?

2- Does amount of colours used affect the price a lot?

3- Aside from checking out every nearby tattoo place's BBB record, what should I look for in a place to do said tattoo?

4- Just for fun, wanna show off your tattoos? ;P I'm not stealing ideas, promise.

I have a question about a CD that won't load.

I bought the CD yesterday, and once I put it into my MacBook Pro, a minute later it would be spat back out. The CD didn't register on my iTunes, nothing. I tried putting in another CD and it worked fine.

I've tried checking online to see if its just this specific CD, but found nothing. Everyone has said that it works great.

So what's the deal? I have the newest version of iTunes and everything.

Blah : l

more dog questions [May. 30th, 2007|12:42 pm]

[si_infuria]
1. WHY is my dog whining? WHAT does she want? She sounds like a leaky balloon. No, she's not sick, in pain, hungry, thirsty, bored, or lonely, and the whining is pretty much constant. Is that just what some dogs do? This must be similar to how parents feel when their baby won't stop crying.

2. How can I stop my dog from pulling on her leash when we go for a walk?
My friend already suggested a choke-collar, and I tried that once, and she just choked herself in addition to dragging me down the street.

// BTW, thanks again to everyone who was so helpful when my dog swallowed the popsicle stick the other day. Per the vets' and TQC's advice, we just kept an eye on her. She pooped a popsicle stick about 36 hours later and seemed fairly unimpressed with the whole affair.

Which one and why?

**EDIT**

I thought I might note: The baby's room is pretty small. My sister actually has a long white dresser that she offered but the room just will not accomodate something of regular size. The purpose of buying a "changing table" is more for storing clothes, blankets, extra wipes, lotions, etc etc...it's mostly to double as a small dresser that matches the white/blue decor and staying in budget. Another option is a tall dresser - which I might look into actually, but I have always hated the tall dressers...perhaps that's because I'm 5'0 and like everything to be more at my height. :P

So the other day I posted about needing to get some sunglasses because I get stuff in my eyes when I ride my bike. Yesterday I finally bought some, and today I wore them when I rode my bike to my cousin's house. He immediately made some terrible Willy Wonka joke like "Did you just come from the chocolate factory?" or something equally unfunny.

Do they really look like Willy Wonka glasses?Collapse )

EDIT: I only wear them when I'm riding my bike, which is mostly on my street. So it's not like I'll be going out to places with them on.

Question regarding job position... [May. 30th, 2007|01:14 pm]

[dark_raven87]
So I work at a yacht club TQC...and I was just leafing through the newsletter for the yacht club, and it goes like this...

"Julie in accounting, Sam (me) in the office, Brian in the kitchen, John on the waterfront and Rick in the office..."

My question to you, TQC, is that all the names, beside mine, are all managers within the yacht club, including the person writing it. Now, this year -my third year- my boss has given me a lot more respnsibility, including scheduling of the office and snack bar, ordering for the snack bar, training office and snack bar emoplyees, and interviewing/hiring new office employees. He hasn't given me a title or anything, but it seems like I have just kind of assumed the role of office manager/supervisor. From what I read in the newsletter, it seems like I have been lumped in with the managers.

Would I be in any way right to assume that I have gotten the defacto title of supervisor? Not official, just kind of assumed? Any opnions would be appreciated.

In Massachusetts, minimum wage is $7.50. If you had this much responsibility and seniority, what would you ask for pay?

For money, would you do any of these? (on a day-by-day basis, not as a primary job)

Pose nude for art photography
Pose nude for pornographic photography
Be a go-go dancer
Be a stripper
Appear in a porn movie (no oral or... penetration, if you will)
Appear in a porn movie (hardcore)
Be a nude housekeeper or other fetish type person for an individual
Give sexual favors to an individual from, say, Craigslist

For "money", I mean the realistic amount you'd be paid if you actually took the job.

i want to get sushi today for the first time ever at a restaurant/ what is your favorite kind, or a good kind for a someone who's never had it? what should I avoid?

so, my company laid off about 20% of my dept in March. Last week I was offered a new position, it would be a lateral move and I'd have a different manager. It's not something I want to do. But, is it possible they can force me to take it, even if I want to turn it down?

Also they said they wouldn't replace me if I left my current position. This makes me worry that if I don't leave they will lay off someone with less experience. Would you take the transfer to a crappier job (if you knew they would fire a coworker if you didn't transfer)?

My computer is talking to me.

No, seriously, it's a mac OS X and whenever I click something, a computerised voice tells me exactly what I clicked.
"NewsEdit Pro pages window update button"
"Firefox Update Journal window scroll bar"

I'm sure this is for the nearly-blind or something, but it's incredibly annoying and I can't listen to music at all because this voice tells me everything I click.
I went to "finder services speech stop speaking" and clicked that, and it informed me that i clicked it, but it's still going.

Do I have an option other than "mute" ? (It's also not under sound, it seems.)
