ETA: Nevermind. Figured it out. Thanks.
The ennui, it crushes my soul. What should I write about to alleviate the lassitude?
Bah, nevermind... I found a BitTorrent download for it. 49 hours to go!
2. What's your favorite movie?
"1. Does anyone have any old neopets accounts anymore? They can be worthless, absolutely no NP, no pets, or a good name-- just 4 months or older? Email email@example.com ... this is very urgent!!! it would be so much appreciated!! she may even offer you something for them (:
2. what would you guys do if your boyfriend peed on the carpet because he is too lazy to walk to the bathroom? i cant find appropriate punishment/get him to stop
3. how do you guys react to queefing with a guy? Is it not totally embarassing?!"
And a question from me:
4. Did you do anything amazing today? If so, what?
Have a nice night/morning!
1) Less than 1 month-- Pro Life or Pro Choice?
2) 1 Month-- Pro Life or Pro Choice?
3) 2 months-- Pro Life or Pro Choice?
4) 3 months-- Pro Life or Pro Choice?
i agree this is better..
Abortions in the later trimesters.. Pro Life or Pro Choice?
Do you have any weird reactions or allergies? Particularly to common household items?
How can I increase the audio quality? Is there a setting that I need to fiddle with? It's kind of annoying having to really "crank" the volume and it's not even that loud.
You do not fake being polite
o Strongly Disagree
o Strongly Agree
What the heck does that question mean? The way I see it it can mean two things:
A) When I don't feel polite, I don't fake it (which would be a bad thing for jobs where you need to have good customer service qualities)
B) I don't need to fake being polite because I already am polite (which is a good thing)
What do you think? What should I say in order to give the best impression?
2. If you don't have kids, would you object to their watching Spongebob if/when you have kids? Why?
3. What shows aimed at children would you/do you object to your kids watching?
I ask because my youth pastor doesn't let his kids watch Spongebob, and I think that's....kinda strange, and my aunt won't let her kids watch Dora the Explorer because she doesn't want them learning Spanish(WTF?).
Absolut MANDRIN (Orange and mandarin)
Absolut VANILIA (Vanilla)

ETA: tally = raspberry 10, peach 4, grapefruit 3, mandarin 1, vanilla 12, pear 0.
EDIT: Never mind, the gods have been kind, I got it back. Whew.
My answer: maybe people really believe that this is the best approach to everything. I think most people mean well by giving this answer. People probably mean to save time and keep things interesting. I have gotten exasperated, myself, when people have asked me very general or simple questions ("what are some Jewish holidays?" "How to you make green tea?") and I've told many people to go use Google.
But I am finding it tiresome and nattery. And I wonder what those replying "google it" so frequently think about the depth and intricacy of information which often turns up from discussing, rather than simply googling.
I love Google and I use it constantly. But I can see its limitations, too. Google is not necessarily the last word in subjects which are enriched by discussion, especially discussion among a group of people familiar to the information seeker, a kind of peer group. Some questions really are answered better by human beings reading them, not by pages which happen to show up at the top of a Google search.
Another unrelated question: Have any of you tried Danactive, and if so, did it make you feel sick?
I've never been in this situation before and I don't know what my rights are or if I have any.
The dealership I bought this car from ripped me off on the price of the car and the interest rate of the loan. Now to find out that there has been previous damage that was merely covered up just kills me. I bought the car a year ago.
What can I do?

Does it bother you when other people tell you how you're feeling?
"you're being grumpy, you're in a bad mood"
I suspect I'm Bipolar and have to monitor every weird thing to do with my head but the problem is I'm not sure if this is weird or normal so..
I was laying in bed failing to sleep and kinda phased out (no real way to explain it, it's like you get really disoriented for a moment) and heard a loud crash kinda like an explosion and books falling over combined. I get this a lot but never take much notice. It's a split second in and out type of thing and I usually shrug it off. But it happened again a few minutes later except instead of an explosion type noise it was three voices I'm unfamilar with (not that I have many voices in my head) and the first one I did not catch, but she was an old woman, the other two were an old man (who said mother in Japanese) and a young boy (who said brother in Japanese). It lasted maybe a second or two before I came out of it again. I've had the loud bang one while not in bed or remotely tired, but this is a new thing.
So erm.. is it normal to just phase out for a moment and hear voices or bangs like that? I should note my room was silent except for a clock and the buzz of my PC fan. I'm used to these and my clock makes no noises except tick and tock.
You need to talk to someone at a business. The business doesn't open til 9 AM, but it is 8:20 AM. Do you just wait til 9 o'clock or do you start punching in extension numbers until you find someone in the office?
On to a more pressing subject: FOOD. I've got some crackers that I'm going to be setting out tonight at this little get-together. I want to stick some cheese and meat on the tray, too, but I'm stuck as to what kind. Cheddar and...? What other cheese can I slice up? Do they sell salami pre-sliced? (I never buy salami or even look at that section - I honestly do not know how salami comes.)
I really want to get a camera…not a digital camera, but an old fashion film camera.
For those of you who know about cameras, what would be a good camera to get that costs under $100.00?

EDIT: I'm a dumbass. The Catholic thing is fixed.
2) Why do people who say they "never smoke pot" or "this was my first time" seem to do it RIGHT BEFORE getting drug tested for a new job? Do you think they are lying to make it not look like they are a pothead?
3) For people who do not like the buttsecks: would you do it for $20,000?
4) Would you perform oral sex on a 400-pound 40-year-old deaf woman for $100,000
5) Do you belong to any macro communities? Which?
So, here's the question.

3. what happened to TQC chat last night ):?
4. Does it bug you when someone says "thanks" rather than "thank you"?
However today everyone left for a company event & I'm here by myself. Reading so many stories on crimelibrary has me paranoid as hell. This office is huge and I'm already scared so I can't read anymore stories and that was my only means of entertainment [solitare gets old after you've won for the millionth time].
Can you guys please link me to things that are interesting to read and/or ways to entertain myself? I am here for another 3 hrs and I need something to get my mind off all the creepy little noises...
Thanks in advance! Oh, and the reason I can post this is because I'm on my sidekick. I can't really use it to go on websites though because it takes too long to load. :/

I was thinking an ice bucket but honestly, who uses those? Then I was thinking a theater-style popcorn bowl but apparently I can only find it online.
Should I buy the bowl or should I just put the gift in paper bag with a big bow on it?
So, tell me?

4 What's the strangest eye colour description you've heard? A friend of mine says her brother has "piss blue eyes", which, if you mix yellow and blue properly, should make green, but his eyes are in fact blue. I don't know where the piss comes into it.
5 For those that do, what sort of moisturiser do you use? I'm using Olay Complete.
6 Does your hair get tangled easily? Mine gets knotty as I brush it. My friends torment me with how straight and smooth their tangle free hair is. Should I sneak in and cut it into horrible styles to retaliate?
I have very dry hair. It is icky. In fact, the underside of it is more of a frizzy mess than curly.
What leave-in conditioner do you recommend? I do not dye my hair anymore and I'd prefer the conditioner be something I can buy from a grocery store. Also, I'd prefer not to pay like, $15 for 4 oz of product. Because I am poor. With frizzy hair.

e.g. My mother can hardly write or read and doesn't think she needs school (she didn't even finish high school), yet wants to run a business. She can't balance a checkbook. She drives terrible. She lets the fact that she smokes run her life (she refuses to go to places that have no smoking... for example, I'm going to be working at Disney World soon, but she'll refuse to see me because smoking isn't allowed at all there). I lose something, she'll go on about how "she fucking knew I'd lose that, she should have kept it, I'm so fucking irresponsible and will never amount to anything," etc., but when she loses something she'll complain about how she has too much on her mind and just can't handle thinking about things. Like she just lost my driving lessons schedule. What else? She just never takes the blame for everything, it's always somebody else's (mostly my) fault. Not even going to get into what happens when her and alcohol mix.
Hoooowwww do you deal with that.

I remember hearing a story in which Gandhi attempted to go to a church in south africa, and was denied entrance (knocked flat) at the door by some elder/deacon/pastor/whatever, who declared that no khaffir (sp) was going to attend his church. And so Gandhi decided Christianity was not a religion he had an interest in.
I can't find this story. Anyone know a place that references it? Gandhi + south africa + church isn't helping in google.

[EDIT] Okay for clarification I don't mean deep spiritual awesome meaningful useful things (no I did not use a single piece of punctuation between those words). I mean, well, like the examples I gave.
1. Lighter fluid and Lysol will clean a paperback book better than anything else. (via my boss/personal experience during my time working in a used bookstore)
2. If you're going to cook chicken, buy a whole chicken. If a chicken is sold as only thighs, only wings, only breast, etc.. there's a good reason you aren't seeing the rest of that chicken. (via a former coworker who used to work in a poultry plant so no I can't swear it's 110% true but I trust him so :/)
If you answered the phone and
if it was your significant other calling and
if he/she wanted you to have phone sex and
if you said no because your best friend was in the room and
if he/she said that was okay because he/she had always been attracted to your best friend and wanted your best friend to be in on the phone sex and
if that thought made you feel weird but kind of aroused at the same time,
would you ask the folks in this community what you should do?
2) What's your favorite kind of 'ethnic' food?

My questions therefore are:
1 What are your favourite two or three comms that are not often recommended here? (since last time this was asked, the same three kept coming up...)
2 And, what are your favourite say, top 5 overall? (excluding any you mentioned above) And what are they all for?
3 How many comms are you a member of?
4How do you find them, and what makes you want to join?
5. What really quiet comm would you like to see get more action?
Or is the nameplate a better idea?
2. If so, what was your favorite one? Or which one are you most looking forward to?
3. What is the rave scene like in your area?
4. Drum and Bass or Trance or Techno?
5. Favorite DJ?
Edited because I forgot to put my answers, haha.
1. Yes, many many many.
2. Favorite= Nocturnal Wonderland last year. Looking forward to= Almost Better than Sex 2007.
3. "poppin'" LA is fantastic for raving.
4. DnB hands down....the more evil the better :)
5. DJ Craze! or Tiesto, hard decision.
I was previously renting a room for $400/mo in a 4/4 apartment in Texas that included everything but water and electricity. I am moving across the country (more specifically, New Jersey) and just applied for a 1/1 apartment for $910 a month that includes everything except electricity. :(

5. Do you enjoy the TV show "Scrubs"?
I'm freaking out because I'm living in an apartment for the first time and I don't know what the Post Office will do with my packages! Will they leave them outside for the crackheads? Will they put a slip in my tiny mailbox telling me to come get them? Can I request that they just let me come pick them up instead? I don't want my stuff stolen, like the neighbor's table that was left out or like my slobbery dog toy I left outside for an hour (! ANGRY! Why take that? It's gross!)
You get a call from Mama Hilton, and she says, "I want you to serve out my daughter's time for her. Name your price."

Do you know of any websites that have good photos (as in it shows the hairstyle in a way that would make it easy for a hairdresser to replicate) of up 'dos for any occasion, or am I better off forking over a little pocket change for a hairstyle magazine? If the latter, any magazine (that is easily obtainable in the US) that you'd recommend?
Also can you block numbers from texting you on your cell phone? My goggle searches say no, but my friend's boyfriend keeps telling me how awful I am via texts and won't stop.

Would you rather serve 5 days in prison (real prison, not a country club-type of prison), or serve 3 months of house arrest?
Would you rather serve 3 years in prison (no time off for good behavior) starting next year, or would you rather serve 10 years in prison, starting at the age of 50?
Would you rather serve 2 months in prison, sharing a cell with someone who's a murderer, or would you rather serve 2 months in prison in solitary confinement?

Will you post a random question to get this shit pushed to page 2?
1. Would getting my friend a gift in general seem like a weird thing, or would it be as welcoming as I would hope? (Seriously, socially slow here.)
2. Would a jar of preserves or something similar make a good gift if you said "welcoming" to #1, or should I go for something else? Please leave ideas for the "something else".
3. Given that we're talking about a glass jar here of food-type stuff, is that going to be a problem for her flying back to Canada, either from Customs or from air pressure causing the jar to explode? Should I wrap it in a lovely Zip-loc gift wrap so as to confine any potential leakage?
4. Would you also give something to the friends of a friend that you'd never met, assuming you'd give something to the friend in the first place?
bightchee applauds your effort.
Do you mind if I don't really ask a question so we can just move that shit on down?

Please share any experiances you might have with this sort of thing with me - if there's a company you'd recommend/avoid/etc, if you've done it in the past and found it to be more/less of a hassle than collecting the items yourself, etc! ANYTHING you have to offer will help me feel less overwhelmed, at the very least!
Thank you all very much for any and all help.

So, for my final project in my Documentation Project Management class, I have to do a presentation outlining (surprise, suprise) documentation project management.
Basically, the main themes of documentation project management are: Document outlines, proposals, schedules, budgets, contracts, copyrights, delegating tasks to different team members, managing personnel, monitoring progress, revision, translation, delivering copies of the finished product, etc. We pretty much have alot of creative room, as long as it's somehow related to one of those things.
Examples that the teacher gave us from past presentations: Technical documentation in the Bible (showing how the Bible has been revised over the decades, and the reasons for the revisions) and Shakespeare (showing how his works were translated.)
I need to think of something super creative, that has anything to do with the themes above. I'm completely stumped.. I thought I was onto something involving talking about how lyrics are "revised" in a way, when another artist covers the song. But I really don't think I can talk my way through that for 5 minutes... My friend has this idea about how menus are "revised" when the menu items are updated, but that's pretty dull.
Any ideas? I have two weeks before this is due, so if you have an idea that involves lots of research, I have time.
I'm kind of in the mood for a drama, anything like "Little Miss Sunshine" or "Everything Is Illuminated"... something bittersweet but not over the top.
What's your favorite movie snack?

I've heard so many women gush over how their all women's college has made them more strong-will, independent, and more powerful inside. But I don't get it. Can't you get that at other colleges, too? It's just that they seem more passionate about it than other women who go to co-ed schools. What makes an all women's college so great?
Maybe it's just that I've never felt incompetent compared to men JUST because I'm a woman.

I came home tonight to a note telling me to stop my dogs from barking "at 6am, 12 noon, and 9pm for 20 minutes at a stretch."
Since my dogs don't even go outside until 6:30am and are generally back inside at or before 8pm, I'm at a loss to see how this person can even be sure that its my dogs barking. I live in an area where almost everyone has dogs, they are all outside dogs, and they all bark pretty much 24/7.
Yes, I do have my dogs outside while I'm at work- I have no choice. They cannot be left inside because then they DO bark and tear up my trailer (they have some anxiety issues). And yes, they do bark when people walk by- as do all the other dogs in the compound. I'm listening to a few dogs barking as I'm typing, in fact.
So.. do I ignore this person? Lock my gate so they can't come in my yard?
What would you do?
