how to follow through on plans [Jun. 28th, 2007|09:44 am]
The Question Club

[cynicalcleric]
[mood |curiouscurious]

Anyone have tips on how to make myself better at following through on plans I make for myself?

It's not an issue of not following through on plans with other people involved, its really all personal stuff. I say to myself "I will go grocery shopping after work" but then feel tired and hungry at the end of the work day so I skip it and go straight hope. Repeat for several days. Or "I'm going to get to bed early and in the morning I'll do some exercise, eat breakfast at home, then head to work" but I end up not getting to bed early, wake up still tired and sluggish and skip the exercise because of it.

I suppose maybe its a procrastination problem but I don't really know any way to deal with procrastination either. Hell, it may even go all the way back to self-esteem issues (since its only plans that just involve me) but that's an entirely more complicated can of worms...

- Is it slutty to not remember the name of somebody you had sex with the night before?
- What about having forgotten the name of somebody you had sex with five years ago; equally slutty or less slutty than above?



- Does anybody know is wild_root_fruit or brokensemaphore had their babies?
- Am I weird for wondering? lol



- How often do you have a little emotional outburst, tantrum, annoyed silent treatment, etc?
- Are you more likely to get moody with specific people than others? Who and why?



- My coworker is getting married in two weeks and she and her fiancee don't live together. Our boss jumpred to the conclusion that not living together equals that they don't have sex, and made the comment "Just for the record, premarital sex is BETTER." On a scale of 1 to 10, how inappropriate is it for a boss to say that to a coworker in the work place?



- A question for a friend. He has always considered "January to July" to be Summer and "August to December" to be Winter. I say he's WEIRD. Super weird. Is he weird? How weird. He's just weird. Oh and he says that the year is eye-shaped. "Summer" (Jan to July) being the top curve, and "Winter" (August to December) being the bottom curve. Is he weird? Just tell me he's weird.

You're roadtripping with your SO for 6 days. There will be points where you're driving for 4-5 hours at a time. Then you'll be staying with someone for the night and doing something during the day and then getting back on the road. (this is badly worded..but you know what I mean..driving somewhere, doing some stuff, driving somewhere else etc...)

1) What would you bring in the car with you to keep you occupied? 

2) Any games we could play together while he drives? 

3) Most importantly, what would you pack to munch on? 

(We'll have a cooler that we can grab more ice for as needed. Looking for either pick-up-able snacks or maybe a recipe if you've got it? Also, food that the driver can eat without being spoon fed would be nice too. I love him, but I don't want to spoon feed him until we're both much much older. )

1. What weird-ass clubs did you have in highschool?
2. Are there billboards where you live? As in, up around the town/city itself (meaning, not on big highways or anything)? You have to drive about thirty/forty minutes to see a billboard here.

[abbybernstein]

It seriously annoys me when people take pride in referring to themselves as something insulting. For example:

- My best girl friend proudly declares her "fag hag" status to everyone she knows. Especially if they happen to be gay.
- My sister thinks it's really cool that people think she's a bitch and openly refers to herself as a bitch.
- My cousin is proud of her reputation as a "tease".

I understand that in their minds this means:

- My girl friend is tolerant and open to the gay lifestyle. She also loves her gay friends.
- My sister is glad she's viewed as an upfront, aggressive, and honest person.
- My cousin likes that men recognize that she won’t just "give it up”. Never mind the fact she makes them think she will; she does this because in her mind this gives her the upper-hand in the situation.

So, my questions are these:

1) Isn't there a much better way for these people to describe themselves without using awful terms with obvious derogatory overtones?

2) Why in the world would anyone take pride in being called something derogatory?

Okay, so I need some advice.

My toddler, every single night for the past month, just about has been waking up at around 2-4 AM and seeing Monsters and ghosts. He scereams and wails until eventually (sometimes immediately) someone comes down and gets him for cuddle time because he's so freaked out.

He's sobbing, and shaking when he comes down, and often talks about something biting him, and him having owwies.

He says he's awake, and that there's no nightmares.. that its' real. He sees shadows and then they attack.

heeeelp?

Is my house haunted? Is my kid's imagination going wild? Does he just want to cuddle and is there for manipulating us with scary stories? Are these just nightmares?

And what's your favorite scary movie, to make this a little less me and my family centric.

1.  Why does it feel like my heart is breaking?  I'm not in the process of going into or out of a relationship.   Too many sad songs on the radio?  Indigestion after lunch? Guilt for playing online instead of working? Stress? a reaction to my vitamins?  What could it be?

2. What is the saddest song you've listened to today?  

3.  How do you cheer yourself up when you're feeling the blues?

Edit: It feels like an ache in my upper chest, kind of how you feel when you're beaking up with someone in a relationship, is how I'd define the pain. 

1a. I don't know.. but eating blueberries seemed to make the problem worse, so I'm voting indegestion
2a. Unbelievable by Def Leppard or the opening from Phantom of the Opera "
Will you still play when all the rest of us are dead"
3. Usually listen to happy go lucky cheerful disney songs, or Bananaphone, or the badger song, or the Rubber Ducky song.
 


Edit:  It was indigestion. Am currently having major shooting stomach pains. But thank you all for your help

my bread says "best if purchased by June 23". Is it safe to eat, y/n?

my Miracle Whip says "best when used by 26 JUN 2007". Is it safe to eat, y/n?

(it's 28 June here, in case you were wondering)

Native Americans [Jun. 28th, 2007|01:47 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[segunyo]
It has been many many years since I was in history class and learned just what happened to the Native Americans.

I have sincerely forgotten. I have had a complete brain freeze.

I am intensely interested in Australian Indigenous affairs and all this hubbub surrounding the recent emergency crisis intervention plans has incited in me a deep need to remember what the hell happened to the Native Americans

By this I mean, what sort of arrangements were made, are they a disadvantaged group now, just like, what the hell happened? I tried Wikipedia but that is such general information. Do we not have Indigenous issues? Or didn't we ever?

Any help would be much appreciated. :) As in, a Web site? Or do you know anything about it? News articles? Anything at all, surely one of you is writing a dissertation about it and can recommend a book or something

The reasons I am seeking this information are because I am wanting to compare how America versus Australia have addressed the disasters that colonization inflicted upon their respective native populations.

Thanks erybody

So on my birthday I let my cousin borrow The Sims 2 for a week.

I've since then been experiencing extreme withdrawal symptoms (those of you who are obsessed with this game know what I'm talking about).

Should I go out and buy a copy of The Sims 2 Deluxe which has The Sims 2 Nightlife Expansion Pack - something I've been planning to do anyway - and just let her keep this copy, or should I wait until she returns and keep the old copy and buy The Sims 2 Pets Expansion Pack instead?

Either way, I'm just about dying and trying to find bootleg copies on BitTorrent, I think I have a problem.

Halp!

Can anyone recommend some good, high-pressure shower heads?

My new apartment's shower is practically a trickle and it drives me crazy. My previous place was so high-pressure that it hurt if you had a sunburn... I loved it but it was an old shower and the head didn't have a brand name or anything on it.

EDIT: This is not a "why does my shower have crappy pressure?" or "recommend me a masturbator!!!" post. Please just offer recommendations for shower heads. Thank you.

the USA play Argentina in Copa American tonight. i can either go down town to watch the game at a restaurant or stay home and watch it on my computer.

going down town would be more fun but the only problem is the bus home. i'd either have to

1. leave before the game was over to get the bus that goes by my apartment at 9:45
2. take the bus that comes about 10 minutes after the game will end but drops me off 10 minutes from my apartment and walk two blocks alone after 10:00
3. wait about 40 minutes after the game for the next bus to my apartment

i don't like any of these options. if it were day it wouldn't be an issue. my neighborhood is perfectly safe, it's just the street i'd be walking on to get home that concerns me. all kinds of people drive it at night. it would probebly be ok but i'm 20, a girl, alone; you get it.

Does anybody know what population in the US is actually considered the most disadvantaged population? I mean in terms of over-representation in disadvantaged groups (e.g., poverty, prison, child abuse, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, bad things)

Is it in fact the Native Americans?? Or is it another group?

I did google search but I'm coming up with conflicting results and I'm just not entirely convinced either way. A source with your answer would be awesome (in case you were tempted to just respond without backing it up;-)

here's my source - for reasons you will see when you open the page, I am not convinced by the following statement which stands alone:

"A timely and scholarly legal analysis of the most disadvantaged population in the United States, the American Indians. A thorough and thoughtful study."—David L. Gregory, Wisconsin Law Review

(btw, Vice is defined as... a practice or habit that is considered immoral, depraved, and/or degrading in the associated society. Vice can also refer to conduct that is seen as depraved or degrading such as prostitution, incest, or pedophilia. The term can also be used to refer to a particular form of immoral conduct as in 'drug abuse is a vice'. In more minor useages, vice can refer to a fault, a defect, an infirmity, or merely a bad habit. Synomyms for vice include fault, depravity, sin, iniquity, wickedness and corruption. Vice is the opposite of virtue.)

I stood there kinda confused at the fact that she was afraid I was going to blow up but stuck around. She would've went *kaboom*, too. Right?
Then, she started to lecture me but I just hopped back in my car and drove off.

Soooo I do an unpaid, part-time internship that often wastes my time. It's a pretty casual situation where I just show up and kill time and sometimes like, make photocopies. My boss is going out of town tomorrow but I'm still supposed to come in and the other people in the department will try to come up with stuff for me to do. BUT just now I've arranged with my brother that I'm going to go shadow him at his job tomorrow, because I figured that out of all the days at the office that waste my time, Friday will probably waste even more. So what do I do, TQC?

-call the office tomorrow AM to say I'm sick?
-call the office tomorrow AM to say I'm going to shadow my brother?
-call my boss tonight and say I'm sick? / going to shadow my brother?
-email people tonight to say I'm sick / going to shadow my brother?

Other?

ETA: If it makes any difference, just yesterday I asked my boss if I could leave for the summer 3 weeks earlier than planned, and she said OK. But I haven't told her yet that I've decided to do it.

CELL PHONE ISSUES! [Jun. 28th, 2007|06:59 pm]

[mood |annoyedannoyed]

Recently I got a Motorola Razr V3r. It was fine for a couple weeks, and now all of a sudden it's not getting much singal strength in places that I KNOW damn well it should have excellent service signal.

My boyfriend has a V3 and we have a family talk plan on the same network (AT&T). HIS phone gets wonderful signal strength in most areas while in the same areas, mine is lucky to get one bar without standing on my head and holding the phone at weird angles. It used to have great signal at my work, too, and now all of a sudden the only place I can get a signal is in the restroom.

Anyone experience this or know what's up?

3 years ago I got an Industrial piercing in my left ear.  I loved it , but it soon formed a keloid.  I took out the earring, and the keloid halted, but is still there.  I have talked to some dermatologists about removing the keloid, and they said they would remove the keloid, and then give me a shot or some cream containing steroids to keep it from coming back.  However when  I asked about re-piercing the ear, they wouldn't give me a straight answer.  Could I not use the same cream/shot to keep it from re-forming?  If that is not possible, is it safe to get the piercing in my right ear, or would that keloid as well?

People say not to recharge my phone when the battery isn't fully dead because it shortens the battery's lifespan. What no one has told me, and what I would like the honourable TQC to tell me is WHY?

Do you follow instructions if you don't know why they tell you to do something?

I often don't, I need to make informed decisions. For instance, my fancy-pants towel said 'don't use fabric softener on this towel', however I like my towels soft, and it wouldn't tell me why I shouldn't use it, so I did. Then I found out you shouldn't use fabric softener on towels because it makes them less absorbent; I like my towels absorbent, so I stopped the fabric softener.

Why?, TQC? Give me the why for anything.

EDIT:
Why do my mugs say not to put them in the microwave?


Why does my cutlery say not to use lemon scented dish-washing detergent?

I need help finding a poem (and yes I've googled and also tried whatwasthatone.

All I can tell you is that part of it was the author comparing the woman he loved to a flower that he wouldn't pick because then it would die (and that was the greater tragedy). I'm fairly sure that it was by a famous poet. It was fairly long and broken up into parts (I believe).

Do any of you know what poem I'm talking about or where I might find out?

Okay, I need TQC's computer/gaming geniuses, please.

I play Everquest 2 on occasion (ie when I can pay for it for more than 2 months at a time), and the other day downloaded the 7-day "Play the Fae" trial.

Recently upgraded to 1.5 gigs of ram, and have a 1/73 GHz Intel Pentium processor. Nothing fabulous, but it works. I don't know if it's just this trial, or what, but after about 15-20 minutes of gameplay, my video driver crashes. ONLY with Everquest, and even with the graphics performance turned ALL the way down to the point where I can't bear to look at it. My boyfriend had me go to windows update (the site), but it couldn't find any updates. It ran better when I only had the 512mb RAM, honestly. And I'm sure it's not my internet connection, as it also ran better previous to my RAM upgrade and whatnot. Not saying it IS the RAM upgrade, as theoretically that would help it run even better...

I got a "video driver failed" error, and was wondering if turning it's entire performance down would help, and not just the graphics. If it continues to do this I might just invest in a better computer anyway (it keeps me entertained while at school, and I do not like WoW at all). The entire computer would lock up, so I'd wind up just unplugging it (laptop, so games are a pain anyway, and I do have a LT cooler).

Any suggestions on what I can do, either with the computer or EQ2? :(

Thank you!

1) Where can I find a video of Whitney Houston saying "Hell to the no"? I looked on YouTube but couldn't find one.

2) If your significant other slept with someone else, one time, and then admitted to it and apologized to you, would you take them back? Why or why not? 

If you would, let's say that after you took them back they found out they were pregnant/had gotten the other person pregnant. Would you change your mind about taking them back? Why/why not?

3) What's the best TV show ever?

4) Would you look down on someone if you found out they worked as a stripper?

5) If someone steals baby formula to feed their child, does this make them a bad person?

6) Is there a movie everyone else seemed to hate that you really enjoyed? What was it?

According to this article, the Wikipedia page about Chris Benoit (the dead WWE wrestler who killed his wife and son before hanging himself) was updated with the mention of his wife's death at 12:01am on Monday, 14 hours BEFORE the bodies were found, and before Benoit sent text messages to coworkers/friends that tipped them off to something being wrong.

The IP address traces to Stamford, CT, where WWE's headquarters are located.

Benoit's home was in Georgia.


Who updated Benoit's Wikipedia?

I have been a bad TQCer lately, but then again I've been very busy the last couple months.

I have a big question for you all! D: It's probably painfully simple.

How does one reformat a picture so it can be printed fully onto an 8.5 x 11 in. paper? Also the same for 4 x 6 in.

I'm trying to print pictures off of my computer that I've drawn for people so I can give them a copy of it, but I'm having the worst luck with it! Thank you TQC!

EDIT I guess I should say I have the GIMP program for any editing.
