Have you ever been stuck in a roller coaster, elevator, or train?

I went to this really sketchy amusement park, and went on the creepiest ride and it got stuck right on top. Luckily after like ten minutes it started moving again.

I got stuck on the 31st floor of an elevator during a fire alarm, when I was nine.

I get stuck on the train 24/7, anyone else in Boston probably has too.

2] What is your comepletely honest opinion on "goth"/"punk" peoples?

3] I am a 17 year old female, 5'4", 120lbs. I gained about 20 pounds a few months back and lost most of it, but my body is still a little wobbly-ish. So, I've been going to the gym about three times a week and working on mostly just ab-related machines. When can I start seeing results?!

4] Has anyone ever read The Enchanted Forest Chronicles [Dealing with/Searching for/Calling on/Talking to/ Dragons]. If so, can you recommend any books along the same vein?

5] Do you edit your pictures in Photoshop? And if you're brave enough, show me a before and after picture!

tonsillitis

How long is tonsillitis contagious through kissing for?

I've spent the entire time I've had tonsillitis so far researching tonsillitis on the internet and I haven't found the answer yet. I've been on antibiotics for tonsillitis for 5 days but I still have the attractive white spots. One website did say that if you're taking antibiotics you're not contagious but I don't know if that's true

Morbid:

I remember hearing that 2/3 of pregnancies miscarry before 6 weeks- so, some before the woman's even realised she's knocked up.
And I've also been told that ~2 months, a fetus is roughly the size of a jelly bean.
(These facts might both have been made up by the people I heard them from, i admit.)

So... at what point in time does a fetus become visually distinguishable from a menstruation-y blood clot?

Clothes question

I got this sundress thingie at Walmart tonight to wear to a pool party tomorrow night. It's got a string in front that I don't know what it does. Do I tie it in a bow, or do I tie it around my neck like a halter? It seems to me to be too skinny for a proper halter, but too long for a proper bow. Any ideas?

I have a tetsubin, which I picked up for about $50 (CAD). Apparently the place I got it from is fricken retarded, which is good for me, because they usually go for about $80 to $140. Something about them not being able to sell them so they had to mark them down a few times (college bookstore). It looks just like this teapot, except there is a faint dragon on it. Cast iron.

I need shoes

Ok, so I want what I call stripper/dancer shoes. You know the clear ones with the monster platform? I want those, minus the platform. The only place nearby that I know of that sold them, Dynamic Shoes in Kitchener...it apparently doesn't exist anymore!

So I need some store recommendations. Southwestern Ontario is cool, I'm going on a shopping trip with my brother Sunday so an hour drive or so doesn't matter, we want a new mall to check out! I live in Cambridge.

I don't mean people who left the country or hid or just didn't have their number called. I'm talking medical conditions, having a documented religious objection, or are openly homosexual (I have no idea how other countries feel about gays in the military, but the US is all "don't ask, don't tell" and will kick your Arabic/Farsi-speaking ass out in a heartbeat if you come out).

How do you prefer your toilet paper roll positioned? With the paper coming up over the roll or hanging down from the back?

Lately when I've been out for a short run, I've been getting a weird pain in the back of my shoulder (left or right, but never both at once), right where some people have a dimple. It feels like a really bad toothache, but in my shoulder (that's the best way I can explain), and sometimes, when it's really bad, I feel it a little in the corner of my jaw. I'm not terribly out of shape - 5'6" ish, 125-130 lbs, most of it around hips and thighs. Any idea what this is all about?

After I cut my hair short a few years ago, my ex-boyfriend told me that he thought short hair made girls' faces look fat.

See why he's my ex?

Anyway, after that, I never cut my hair short again.  I'm considering cutting it short again, though.  So I'm asking you, TQC:

Was that just my ex being an ass, or does short hair really make faces appear fat?  I ask because my face is already not extremely thin, and I don't want to do anything to make me appear to have even more of a double chin.


Ok, so new question.

Have you ever been emotionally/verbally abused by your SO?  If so, stemming from this abuse, was there anything strange that affected you in the long-term, such as my fear of cutting my hair short?

Hair help!

I have a wedding to go to tomorrow (not MY wedding), and need to do something with my hair.

I was thinking maybe lowlights as opposed to highlights... or something that isn't as obviously noticable when the color starts fading away (this is why coloring and highlights don't seem like a good option). Any ideas?

My hair is a dull, dishwater blonde/brown color. Length is to my shoulders.

Thanks!

I bought a pineapple at the grocery store today, TQC. Mmmm, pineapple. However, I haven't the foggiest idea how to go about cutting or storing it after I cut it.

Can I cut the ends off, cut it in slices, and eat it from the rind? Should I go to the hassle of cutting all the rind off? (I'm not relishing this if this is a better option.) Should I store it in the fridge once cut? How do you eat your pineapple?

For that matter, do you like pineapple?

I actually used to hate pineapple, my brother would eat it when we were kids and then purposely blow in my face so I'd smell his pineapple breath, and I hated it. Then I had it on a pizza, and grew to love it.

Help me choose a car, please. [picture heavy]

Okay, I am buying my first car (I'm a late bloomer at well over 19, I know, but before this I've just been walking). I am getting a loan of $10,000 to pay for the car and the insurance. Whatever is left, I will just put back. But please, the loan is not what I am asking about, I am already seeing consultants for it. I need advice on buying a car.

This is what I need:

+ Something very reliable. For 7 months out of the year I'm in school, and that means driving about 70 miles a day, round trip. My work is only about a mile away, so I'll probably still walk for the exercise.
+ Something great on gas. See above.
+ Something that can last me all through college, and maybe beyond. When I've graduated, I'm going to grad school, and I want to be chipping away at debt all the time, so I am aiming to get 10 years out of this car. At the very least, 6 or 7.

So I did a search on autotrader, and these are my top three, in no particular order:

Collapse )

So anyway, I really need advice. I don't know much about cars. In fact, I don't know anything at all. Not even how to change a tire. I don't know about mileage either. Mom said that 1,000miles a month is a good marker, so I guess all these cars are good, but I need something that will last. ADVICE PLEASE?

EDIT: People keep on saying Honda...I found a 2004 Honda Civic, 50k miles, for $8,900...is that good, or am I just being fooled by nice pictures?

Health/doctor kind of question

Is it wrong or right to keep hounding a doctor's office about answers you need from a test you've had done?

Here's the story: I had a lyme disease test done a few weeks ago. They just came back in the beginning of the week. Both nurses tell me it looks like I have lyme disease, but that the doctor needs to look at the test to confirm it. The week's about over and he STILL hasn't looked at the test, so I still don't know if I have it or not. I'd really like to know. It's driving me crazy and kind of scary to be sitting in limbo like this not knowing.

I've been calling almost every day asking if he has looked at my tests yet. Is it right or wrong to continue hounding them about it? I feel like I may be annoying calling them so often, but since it's my health, I feel I have the right to know.

So... is it right or wrong to hound them?

Utilities

You've recently moved into a new house/apartment. The first thing you do is call all of the utility companies and have them set up accounts for you, and you receive your first bills a month later.

However, you only get charged for gas instead of gas+electric. Thinking that they're on separate billing cycles, you send off the gas bill and ignore it.

Four months go by. You're only paying for gas, but you're obviously getting electric service as well. Do you:

1) Call the company and point out the error?
2) Let it slide: electric is freakin' expensive.
3) Throw lightswitch raves and set your air conditioner on 59.

Okay, so I'm watching a game on ESPN Classic right now (Iowa at Michigan in 1997--back when Hayden Fry was still at Iowa!) and it reminded me of something I always wondered about.

Why do football players tape their shoes on? Is it to keep them from coming off, or to gain traction? Stabilize the ankle? I'm a chick, so I didn't play to know, but I'm curious. And how long must it take to get that all off after the game!

corsets

I was looking at new corsets in an vintage clothing store today and I noticed that the boning wasn't very rigid- in fact, it was pretty bendy. Are real corsets bendy like that, or is the boning very stiff? I thought old ones used to be metal or bone, which to me means very hard, but what do I know. (And by "real" I mean a corset that you could really use to cinch your waist, not just one that looks pretty as lingerie.)

So this one site I'm a free member of tells you when someone else searches for you by name.  My name is pretty rare (the first name is spelled differently than the "normal" spelling, and my last name is an obscure French name), so it's pretty likely that anyone looking for someone with the exact same first/last name combo is looking for me.  

I just got a notification that someone is searching for me.  All I can see about them is their age & location, and both of those are close enough to my own stats to make me think that it IS someone I know.  Should I spend the $30 for a membership to find out who the hell it is, or should I just worry & wonder forever?  (BTW, to those who would think it's a scam or ploy to get me to buy a membership- I joined the site a while ago (6+ months?) and have never gotten a notification like that before, so it's pretty likely that there really is someone looking for me.)  I've got the money, it won't hurt me to spend it... and as a member, I can use the people search function a little more in depth myself.

Have you ever used a site to search for "lost" friends/loved ones?  How'd that turn out for you?

2. Why am I so bored?

3. What can I do with my 11 weeks of summer?

4. What band do you REALLY want to see?

5. Going to any festivals/gigs this summer? What ones?

please help ):

So I was absentmindedly chewing on a fork, and it kind of stabbed my gum in the back. My mouth has been bleeding for about fifteen minutes - kind of gushing, not just drizzling - and there's something that looks like a small chunk of tissue embedded in the fork tines. I'm sucking on ice but it doesn't seem to be helping. Should I call the doctor? What should I do??

UPDATE:
OK so I went to the doctor and he said that I actually stabbed through my gums into my esophagus. He told me not to eat solid food for a few weeks and I should be fine. So I have a new question for you guys: What are some foods that make good smoothies? I don't like corn or mushrooms.

1)I usually don't do this but I suppose 50 or so heads are better than one. What would be a good name to have on AIM? Preferably one that is not the same as my retarded username.

2)There was this kid on the train rapping all the way to my stop while wearing his headphones. Would this have annoyed you or would you have enjoyed his performance? I don't know who the artist was...from what I heard it was something about Jesus and then "fuck a nigga I'm not a nigga." Not sure. I may have heard that all wrong. If you know the artist please let me know too.

You're hungry.
You made a box of regular Kraft Dinner.
You eat four tablespoons of it.
Your phone rings.
It's your brother.
He wants to go to sushi.
Do you discard/put away the KD and go for sushi?
Or do you say, "No, thanks, I've already made KD and I plan on watching Dave Chappelle after I'm finished"?

My hair is a straggly mess, and the water is off (and will be for a few days) so I can't wash it. I'm going out tomorrow and would like to look less like a rats nest - is there anything I can do? I have a cool hat I could wear, but other than that.

If you like Rufus Wainwright, what album is your favourite?

On which arm do you wear your watch?

Are you happy?

Antibiotics

So I posted earlier that I may have lyme disease. My one doctor hasn't told me yet what he believes the test means, so I went to another doctor and showed him the test results and he thinks I may, but he's not for sure. He put me on Doxycycline for three weeks.

My question:

I've been on the antibiotics for only two days. I noticed my lymph nodes were kind of sore this morning (and prior to treatment, they were not). What does this mean? Do antibiotics make your lymph nodes sore? Does this mean it's stirring up the infection and working? What does it mean? Has anyone noticed this while taking antibiotics?

Just curious.

cute sweater!

Did anyone just see What Not To Wear? Did you see that cute purple cardigan with the clubs, hearts, diamonds, and spades on it?

I just tried Googling for it, but I can't find it. Any ideas??

I am so bored. What are some entertaining websites?

Can you recommend a long novel for me to read (ie The Tender Bar by JR Moehringer and The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory)? I want something that I can really sink my teeth into.

How much do you hate mosquitoes?

do you think people who post pictures of themselves on myspace (or whatever) in bathing suits are full of themselves?

would it matter if it was a one piece versus a bikini?

would your answer change if in your opinion they looked good?

yikes.

My friend is a MTF crossdresser. He knows I'm a fairly open-minded individual so he always wants to discuss it with me.

The problem is, it just kind of weirds me out. I normally love crossdressers. I guess it weirds me out because he really gets off on dressing like a girl and wants me to command him to wear female clothing, which is too close to cheating for me (we both have s.o.s and his is more than willing to dress him up).

How do I politely tell him I'd rather not buy his fishnets for him (tell him to wear them/discuss it with him, etc)?

1] I'm bored and want to watch movies. Any recommendations to movies you think are absolutely amazing?

2] Someone give me a site where I can buy cute cheap things. Any kind of things. Just not ebay.

3] What is the most hurtful thing anyone has ever said to you?

4] What is the meanest thing you have ever done to anyone?

5] What is your opinion on people who dislike people that only start liking a band after they become mainstream?

6] Someone buy me this? I will love you forever.

I live in Northern California, if it makes any difference, but is there much chance of my being employed this far into summer vacation? I've never had a job, but I applied to both Starbucks and Jamba Juice. The first said that they were not hiring at that particular location even though they had applications out and the second seems to have lost my application, even after I did two interviews. Is it worth it to keep applying at random places, or should I just focus on my summer classes? Did any of you have a difficult time getting your first job?

Sorry lads, technical question coming up.

I've downloaded some episodes of a TV show which also have the audio commentary, but I can't work out for the life of me how to access the commentary tracks, given that there's no menu. Any ideas as to how I can get to them, using either Windows Media Player or DivX player? It's a bit of convoluted problem for Google to help much with.


Ha ha, got it!

Just so this isn't a complete waste of a post, here's a new question:

Which fictional characters do you identify with?

Got any weird rituals/undiagnosed OCDs while doing things?

Whenever I have to go to the bathroom, I MUST have something to read. I will even hold it so I can find something. If I get desperate, I even read soap bottles or the back of the toilet paper package.
And, whenever I get in my car, I must rub Purell on my steering wheel. It makes it easier to grip and CLEAN!

1. I bought a new summery dress today that looks totally fab on me. Tomorrow I'm either going to a BBQ or my SO's work party - the weather is supposed to be overcast and off and on showers... should I wear my new dress even though it won't be summery weather? Or should I wait to debut it sometime more appropriate?

2. Has anyone ever used Verizon's phone insurance thing? I have insurance on my cell and it's not working very well - I want it replaced. Do you know if it's possible to get a different phone of equal value, or must it be the same make and model?

3. Should I play MarioKart or Diddy Kong Racing for the Nintendo DS?

Mechanics

So my car (1993 Ford Crown Vic) decided to start randomly turning the driver's side mirror. This when on for several hours, and didn't stop when I played around with the controls for the mirror (which had previously never worked). I was worried about killing my battery, so I took some pliers and cut through the wiring behind the mirror. While the mirror stopped, all my auxiliary power (interior lights, radio, clock) is currently off.

Can I pull out the mirror fuse or something to fix this? Or am I going to have to reattach the mirror wires (and if so, how)?

To the mothers (and fathers for the questions that apply):
What did you think when your baby first popped out? Can you explain the emotions you felt? How was the first night after birth emotionally? Did you and your baby bond well, were visitors bothering you, were you pissy or calm? How was the baby that night and the first couple days with you? Did you miss being pregnant?
