Insecurity and fatness

Why are the most attractive girls the most insecure?

As an extension to the above, why are they the most concerned with weight?

Do you have a token ugly friend to make yourself look better?

(Or at least, concerned much more proportionately speaking.)

Conversely, why are so many fat girls disproportionately like "I am totally accepting and won't lose much of any weight?"

P.S. This post is not to be misconstrued as suggesting that moshimishi isn't actually fat.

I am THE Crime Resident.

More crime related questions from me:
1. Have you ever discovered a murder scene/body? (A simple yes/no will suffice)

Scenario: Your child is on trial for a murder. It's pretty obvious that your child is guilty and going to be convicted:
2. Say your child is under 18 years old. Would you deny your child's guilt despite the evidence against them? Or maybe leave the child to deal with their actions in prison? Or something else you'd do.
3. Same thing but instead your child is over 30 years old.

I just watch too much Law and Order and I need help diffrentiating fact from fiction!

first post here :)

1. what do you think about plastic surgery?

2. what do you think is a "normal" age to lose your virginity? (i know "normal" isn't quite the right word, and i know all the "the right time is when you're ready, blah blah") just from your experiences...

3. do you think there is an abnormal age to still be a virgin? (ex: over 30, should not be a virgin)

Question for the techies:

I bought a new computer and pretty much immediately decided that Windows Vista sucks ass. It was pre-installed on the computer, so I don't have an installation CD. If I use my Windows XP Pro CD to install Windows XP, how likely is that to work without doing something horrible to the computer? And is there any way to do that and keep Vista on the computer in case I want to use it in the future?

Do you get up early?

Do you like getting up early?

Do you ever get up really early just to enjoy the morning/watch the sunrise/something cheesy like that?

My Answers:

Depends. This morning I got up at 7:30 and I don't know why. I usually get up at like 10-11 and rarely 9. THIS IS WEIRD FOR ME I FEEL LIKE I AM IN HIGH SCHOOL AGAIN. ):

Kinda. I would like to be able to not be sleepy and feel like going back to bed for a nap until 11, though.

Yessssss. That is why I wish I could get up early every morning. The sun is pretty and my whole house is bright, from natural light! I don't like turning on lights so this is good for me. However, we have these thick red curtains that are always mostly closed... one time when a friend stayed over and she said when she woke up she thought she was in hell because of the red glow that they made the house have. lol.

TL;DRness

Please pardon my ignorance, but I just want to be sure.

Awhile back I made a post that mentioned a traffic ticket I received. At first I was all ready to pay whatever I had to pay, but later that day when I drove back by where I got pulled over, I noticed that there are absolutely no signs saying I couldn't turn left at that intersection, which is what I got the ticket for. So I took a picture.

My court date was scheduled for 8:30am on the 21st, which is this Thursday. Normally that'd be great, as I have Thursdays off, but I'm a personal assistant and we have a brand new Cardiovascular Center going live this week, and my boss really needs me to be here. But when I called to reschedule my court date (both the officer and I have one chance to reschedule, and must do it at least 48 hours beforehand), I was told it had already been "adjourned to the 28th." I know what "adjourned" means, but does that mean that the officer is the one who did it, using up his one chance to reschedule?

Also, my brother's wedding was this past weekend, for which I was the photographer. A distant cousin of mine (who happens to be closer to my brother than the rest of our cousins) was one of the groomsmen, and won't stop bugging me via Myspace for photos from the wedding. I've already told him politely that he'll have to talk to my brother and SIL about that, as they're their photos, and he replied saying something like, "Well I plan on buying a CD of them from you, I just want ones of me from the reception." How can I get through his thick head that just because I'm not a "professional" that doesn't mean I won't be handling this in a professional manner? My brother and SIL (Nic and Tonya) won't be back from their honeymoon until next week, and I really don't want to have to keep telling him that he can't have any photos until Nic and Tonya see them, decide what ones they want, and who all they want to send them to.

I don't know how to wear clothes

Okay, I have a lot of skirts that are this sort of style, where they are sort of poofy or flowy or basically just have a lot of fabric going on.

I really enjoy them and I want to wear them, but I have this problem where when I walk, the front of the skirt always goes between my legs, creating a sort of culottes look that I'm not really going for. It also falls like what when I'm just standing.

Is there some way to combat this or am I just not meant to wear these skirts?

This is a long shot:

Does anyone from the Sacramento area remember the murder of a 11-12 year old boy by his father that he had never met before? And the boy was tortured before being killed? This was probably around 2002-2003, and sentencing was this past December for the wife of the guy. 

(the boy had been sent to stay with his father for a month or a few weeks, but had never met him before that for whatever reason.)

edit: I want to know the guy's name. I was friends with the wife, and don't remember her married name and no searches under her maiden name bring up the story. And I would love links to the news reports.

Router setup

Anyone know how to change the settings in a linksys d-link DI-704P router?

I remember you need to go to 192.168.0.1 to access the setup and the login/password is always "admin" unless it's been changed. Does doing a factory reset (ie press the button on the back) reset this password and any other settings?

There's been a time restriction programmed into the router so that computers can only connect to the network between certain hours of the day. I wanted to try to remove this restriction.

you can't watch that

When you were a kid, were there any shows (especially cartoons) that your parents wouldn't let you watch even though other kids your age were usually allowed to watch them?

I couldn't watch Tom & Jerry or The Simpsons. T&J was because of the violence. Simpsons was less specific but it was just felt it was a bad influence on kids.

She said: "I love my kids! and I'm a good mother"

The time of year is mid June, it's about 75-80 degrees outside with a slight breeze blowing every now and again.
You need to run into the grocery store, which is part of a large shopping center, to pick up diapers and toilet paper. You're alone with your two children ages 3 and 1.
The kids are strapped safely into their car seats so they wouldn't be able to play around with any of the instrumentation of the car, and you'll take the keys with you.
The car is not running, and the rear windows are down about 1.5 inches.
Do you think it's reasonable to leave a 3 year old, and a 1 year old, alone in a car while you run into the grocery store to grab diapers and toilet paper?
What could possibly go wrong?

EDIT Just to clarify, this isn't about me. My children are 19 and 13. I discovered two children alone in a car on Sunday. I called the police. The childrens mother took off before they arrived...leaving a trail of bullshit behind her. "I love my kids" "I'm a good mother", "I haven't done anything wrong", "I have nothing to be ashamed of", "who made you my judge and jury?". When I saw them, I immediately saw dozens of things that could go wrong, and have this situation end in tragedy. But, mommy dearest seemed to think it was okay to do this. I just wondered if anyone, anywhere, agreed with her.

If you have a job that requires some sort of degree or other training, when did you begin to call yourself a (whatever your job title is)? For example, if you have a degree in nursing, did you consider yourself a nurse once you graduated, once you passed the boards, or once you got a nursing job? This also applies to tons of other specializations.

1. My SO's friend (who is also kind of my friend..) IMPLIED that I was stupid yesterday and I called him ugly for it...afterwards nothing was said about it, it didn't feel like a big deal.  Except yesterday night, he left w/o saying bye and we were all wondering why he was giving us the cold shoulder.  My SO (thinking HE had done something wrong) wrote an email to him and asked what was up, he wrote back today and lo and behold he's pissed at ME for calling him ugly....AFTER HE IMPLIED I WAS STUPID. PERSONALLY, I think this is the stupidest disagreement EVER because both shots were pretty petty and immature (I mean, come on "ugly" and "stupid" stfu) So I was like "wtf" and b/c I reacted like "dude what's HIS problem" now my b/f thinks I'M the one w/the problem and now WE'RE fighting....so seriously, wtf?

I have a job interview for a camp counselor position today. I have to leave in about ten minutes. I had an outfit picked out for it -- very standard interview attire. I just woke up & it's about 90 something degrees out so what I was planning on wearing isn't going to happen. Would a sundress be completely inappropriate for this interview? I have either a green sundress with bright pink splatches or a brown skirt with a blue tank top. I'm not sure if sandals would be okay to wear to an interview. Usually, I would say no but it's so hot and the only other dressy shoes I have are black heels.

So I don't physically have a ticket and the theater is an hour away. If you were in this situation would you drive out and hope you spotted your coworker outside or flake out and not go?

So the dumb-head who built my apartment decided a wooden windowsill would look most excellent in the shower. The only way we have to keep the wood from rotting is a shower curtain around the window. This isn't a very good situation because between that curtain and the regular shower curtain sucking in with air pressure changes, you're likely to suffocate in our shower.

Any ideas how to fix the window sill so we can get rid of the damn shower curtain? And we'd prefer to be able to set stuff on the windowsill.

Would you ever name your child (if you ever intend to have one doesn't matter, just play along) an old-fashioned 'old lady' kind of name? Like Gladys, or Pearl, or Olive? Are these names slated to vanish off the planet with the death of 80+ year old womens? :(

On that note, what's your favourite 'old fashioned' name anyway? Any language, I guess.

If you had been saving for about a year to pay off fines and eventually get a car again and you finally had the money ($3000) when your friend invited you to his wedding in Mexico that coincidentally costs the same as the amount saved, which would you do?..


Pay off fines and work on getting a car
or
Go to the Mayan Riviera for 3 days for a semi good friends wedding



edit:
its my boyfriend thats in this situation however i would benefit either way since i would finally have the car all to myself but on the other hand he would be paying most of the Mexico trip..

What is the dumbest thing you've ever kept for sentimental reasons?

When I was 16, I met my online boyfriend in person for the first time. At some point during the day he gave me a tic-tac. Instead of using it the way it was intended, I just stuck it in my pocket and I kept that thing for like, six months. I look back and LOL at myself.

I have a TON of manga, anime DVDs, how to draw books, books on graphic design, books on color theory, some video games, misc. art books of other types, to sell. Before I hit up eBay, I wanna try seeing if LiveJournal is kind to me.

Where do you suggest I sell my stuff? If not on LJ, is there another website to go to besides eBay?

Cleaning and a Job (this is long)

1. You need to earn money. You need a second job by the end of June because your hours at your current job have been reduced. Your options are:

A.) Work at a discount store that pays very well but the customers are awful.
B.) Try to find work at a restaurant even though it may not be possible by the end of June. You'd be able to make more money, even if it is in a shorter amount of time.
C.) Quit your current job and get one of the above jobs, even though it may pay less. The goal is to make more money by working more, even if it means you get paid less (per hour).
D.) Other (please explain)

Prostitution, drug selling, and exotic dancing are not options.

2. You are going to live with someone who does not have a house that meets and/or exceeds your cleaning expectations. Their pets have fleas (badly), the dishes aren't completely clean, no one cleans the bathroom, and you've never seen anyone mop the floors. You're sure by cleaning the house, you'll offend the people that live there.

What do you do? Clean up and risk embarrassment? Try to get out quickly? Clean up when you think no one is looking? Other?

Edited for a spelling error.

3. Does your SO have a hairy butt? Would you make them wax it if they did? If you don't have a SO pretend you do.

4. Have you ever told someone you had just met that you loved them? (Having known them on the internet before meeting them in real life does not count).

The end is near...

Yahoo! photos is closing and I've had it since I was in the 9th grade. I have over 2000 pictures there, that I no longer actually physically have. And now I'm being forced to choose another service that will host my pictures.

Flickr will only hold 200 pictures, but besides that, I hate the layout.
Photobucket ate my friends pictures and is not organized enough for me.
Kodak... well I haven't actually looked too into it, but its not too appealing.

I'm on the fence with Shutterfly and Snapfish.

Both will hold unlimited amounts of pictures, with unlimited amounts of albums.

Shutterfly is offering a Picturebook if I move to them and while they have the albums, I can't say I love the layout.

Snapfish offers me 50 free prints but I haven't seen the layout so I can't say much about that... ( I do like that they have a customer service chat though..very helpful.)




Help me TQC!!
Does anyone have any of these services? Do you like them? Any problems or issues you've had with either?
Help me get off the fence!



Thanks

A friend of my boyfriend had a nasty nasty cold. He passed said cold to most of his friends, who passed it on to their friends, etc. MY boyfriend refuses to take any kind of medication, he prefers to use good thoughts and meditation to get rid of anything. I don't buy into that at all. When i got sick, I went to the doctor and was put on medicine. My boyfriend is already feeling better. I've spent the weekend hacking up a lung and I'm still miserable.

Why did I stay sick longer?

Question for you guys, and i am looking for remotely serious answers....

So.. my bff and i don't feel as close as we were say.. in january.
Due to recent events(that were my own fault)
i feel as if she is mad at me, but when i ask.. she denies it.
I don't really know what to do, but if we aren't friends anymore, it is DEFINATLEY my fault.
I feel so terrible and i dont know what to do to get things back to the way they were..

So TQC..
Should i just wait this out and hope things work themselves out?
What can i do to fix things.. i've already apologized.
And lastly..
Am i just being stupid? Is it all in my head?
when is this all going to be over.. i just want my bff back.

So, I'm 21 and home for the summer...and while I'm here, my parents generally try to insert themselves in all of my financial matters (which I take care of myself fairly skillfully). Not only do they demand to see statements of mine, when they come in my room to use my computer when I'm not home (which they shouldn't be doing to begin with), they look for papers and receipts around my room and keep them for when they interrogate me about them.


This is incredibly fucked up. Short of moving out (as I'm only here for 2 months), what can I do to stop this? I've password-protected my computer but, other than that, I don't know what to do. Like I said, I'm well-accustomed to taking care of myself at this point and so I just want to be able to live comfortably without the fear of people coming in my room and snooping until they REALLY find something unsettling (vibrator, condoms, morning-after pills, etc.)!

There's a ton of ants crawling around the backdoor. They seem to be regular ones and flying ones and they're all coming through a crack in the door. Most of them are outside but a lot came inside when I opened the door.

How should I get rid of them? All I can think of is those poison ant boxes but I have a dog and I don't know if it can cause any harm to dogs.

1. I quit my job and my last day of work is on Friday. I work at a privately owned daycare. Before I leave I want to ask my boss and one of the women I work with if I could use them as references, and I know they'll say yes, but I would also like to get them a little gift to give to them on my last day, just to show my appreciation. I've worked there for almost a year. What should I get them? They're both age 50+. No food.




2. Can I mail taffy? Is there any way to do it and be absolutely 100% sure that it will NOT melt? I live in California and want to mail it to the east coast. Should I just forget about it?

Peace Corps, etc.

I want to take some time to go volunteer my life. I'm looking for something more along the lines of 6 months, give or take a few. I'd like to go volunteer, either overseas or in another state. And I was thinking about how interesting the Peace Corps are, and looked them up, but I found that you have to be in the program for 27 months, and that's a little longer than I want. And Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization, which I am not Christian, and you have to pay for all your housing and costs to get to wherever you're volunteering and I'd prefer a program that was cost-free like the Peace Corps, so I wouldnt have to worry about money.

So my question is, has anyone volunteered for, or heard of another organization that I could check out? If you've done so, what was your experience like? Would you reccommend it? What would you do again, and what would you change?

Here are the descriptions:

Race in the US: Survey of the history of African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicanos, American Indians, and other indigenous peoples as they become part of the United States, or in the whole Americas depending on focus.

Intro to White Culture: Studies the history, culture, religion, institutions, politics, economics, arts, and psychology of peoples of white culture as developed from experience in both the old and new worlds.

ive been watching episodes of "the black donnelleys" on the web recently, but $^*@^ing nbc.com keeps showing me an error message on this one episode entitled "when the door opens." I would skip it and just move on, but it seemed like it would be so good judging from the description. can anyone describe episode number 10 to me? what happens that is so monumental?

I'm under 18. I bank at Washington Mutual and I have a savings account. Is there a way to change my account to a checkings account and get a debit/ATM card without having to go through a ton of hoops//get parental permission? If I have to, it isn't a HUGE deal, but it would be lovely if I didn't have to. I checked the website, but it wasn't a ton of help.

If it matters, everyone at the bank knows me. REALLY WELL.

1. I use Almay's 16-hour eyeliner and I love it. It doesn't smudge on its own and I love the way it looks. Only problem is whenever I wear my contacts I manage to rub my eyes just enough to smudge it into my contacts, and then they burn and itch until I take them out. Eyedrops don't help, as they just kind of wet the eyeliner and make it worse. Any recommendations on an eyeliner that works just as well but won't give me such problems?

1. Does anyone ever read books that have amazing stories on the inside, but the covers are a bit .. um. I don't know. Not talking bodice-rippers, but people frenching it, or pentagrams and vampires, or what have you. I read at work a lot during our quiet time hour (they read, I read, there is reading going on - I work in a daycare) and I don't want to have to pull out a book with things on it that the little darlings (lawl) wouldn't deem appropriate. How do I get around this? (these are library books, I should mention, so I can't cut off the covers or anything like that).

Looking for an icon

1. Has anyone any idea who made, or where I can at least find, that icon with Kiera Knightley's Elizabeth Bennet saying something like "LOL I'm Elizabeth Bennet!" and Jennifer Ehle's Lizzy saying "Bitch, please" in response?
A friend of mine watched the 2005 movie before finishing the book, and now I'm trying to convince her to watch the BBC miniseries as well.

2. Also, has anyone ever confessed their long-hidden feelings of affection to someone, been kindly rejected, and then felt way better afterwards?
Has anyone at least confessed their long-hidden feelings of affection? What was the result?
