One last set of questions for the day...

1. Do you consider yourself a shoe freak?
2. To the point where you'd be very happy to be able to squeeze a 3rd pair of shoes into a suitcase?
3. Are you deathly bored right now?

My answers:
1. Yes
2. YES! That situation was me when I managed to cram my boots (which I'll be lucky to wear once on the trip) into my suitcase with a lot of room to spare. Wanted to make sure this wasn't just me :P
3. Ugh, yeah. I guess that's why I'm haunting this community so much tonight.

1) After seeing the preview for the movie before HP the other day, I went out and bought The Golden Compass from the His Dark Materials series of books. Is it a good read?
2) Are silverfish random, or does one mean there is (are?) an infestation? I sure hope not...
3) What's your favorite Ben & Jerry's flavor? Mine is Dublin Mudslide, but they don't make it anymore. =(
4) This is such a stupid question but... the other day, I saw a commercial for a 90's rock compilation. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the disc or company that makes it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Found it! It was Buzz Ballads from musicspace.com, lol. Thanks so much stitch_vicious!

ADDENDUM: Have you ever made your own ice cream with one of those homemade countertop machines? Could I make my own ice cream with liquor in it, or will it not freeze?

I just got my long hair chopped off in favor of a Victoria Beckham-esque do. I now have a ponytail of hair. Where could I donate it? I've heard of locks of love, but don't they have a length requirement? I had layers, so the length varies from 2 inches to 8+

Thanks!


Never mind!! I found on the locks of love website that layered hair is acceptable as long as it's 10 inches from end to tip (straightened, it's about 14 haha!) Thanks again!

My boyfriend was supposed to stop by and help me with my math homework after visiting a friend. Supposedly he went to this friend's house at 8:30. It is now 1 am and I am thinking I'm being stood up. He doesn't have a cell phone and I don't know the friend's number. This is kind of out of character for him, but I'm fiending for a fight anyway. What should I do? Where do you think my bf is?

Now I'm going to school far away where there are few Chase ATMs, but a lot of TCF. However, there's absolutely no TCF in my hometown. Aghhh.)

Answer me this questions three

1. Have you ever used an erotic toy like this? I was flipping through channels and some sex toy show was on. This one made me giggle a bit.

2. What's your favorite flavor of ice cream? I was watching a segment on Ben and Jerry's, and realized that I haven't tried much more than traditional flavors.

3. Do you think the person who plays the steel drums for the music on all those "Girls Gone Wild" commercials puts it down on his résumé?

What's your resting heart rate?
Can you describe your exercise habits for me?

The reason I ask is because my brother has a resting heart rate of 60, and he's a dance major so gets tons of exercise and is very healthy. My resting heart rate is 52, which apparently is very low for both men and women, and my brother's kind of upset that someone who is in a lot worse shape than him has a better heart rate. (We did decide that his is high because of all the medicine he takes, but that doesn't explain how weirdly low mine is)

Does my lower heart rate mean I have more potential to do well athletically?

Okay, there must be some gamers in here.

What new games are people enjoying for either the Wii or DS? I finally have free cash again, and it's shopping time. (For the DS, 1-card multiplayer is a bonus.)

Also, where do you get your game reviews from? Most game review sites are crap *coughIGNcough*, so I'm wonder if there are any sources out which are trustworthy.

I currently drive a 2004 Toyota Corolla S (trade-in value at about $10,000). I have about $18,000 left on the loan. I'm looking to trade my vehicle in for a 2006 or 2007 Mazda 3 (which is about $17,000). I pay $452 a month for my car because of the ridiculous interest rate from the finance company.

What I was thinking about doing was trading my car and then also including a down payment of about $2000. I'm not exactly sure what the best approach is and am looking to find some reasonable suggestions since this is my first time doing this. Will I even be able to trade the car in? I'm okay with being upside down on the loan (but not too much!) and paying $452 if I'm in a newer car.

I made huge mistakes when I bought the car and am now painfully regretting it. Paying $452 for a 2004 Corolla S seems insane to me and I'd like to get out of this as soon as possible. I also plan on refinancing my loan in less than a year.

Small questions about something which is far more expansive as I see it-

HYPOTHETICAL

You're standing on acres of flat land fenced into lots and paddocks. The paddocks contain horses. Ten kilometres/miles* in the distance, this land is surrounded by large mountains. At any compass bearing you take, there are mountains in the distance.
You have a large mirror behind you. This mirror is as high as you are tall and is as wide as the the length between your left fingertips to your right fingertips when you fully extend both arms out to your side, at shoulder height.
The mirror stands perpendicular to the ground.

You sit down, one arm's length away from the mirror.

1. When looking straight ahead [the mirror is directly behind and out sight], would one's eyes focus on objects within the field of vision in the same manner one's eyes would focus on those objects if one was turned directly about-face and looked at the mirror-image of what now lies (unchanged) behind [behind ones's own reflection in the mirror image]?


2. Would a regular SLR camera focus objects in the mirror-image as though it was focussing on a flat 2D image displayed by the mirror an arm's length away, or would it focus them as though facing those objects directly?

[I should know this, but I'm having a vacuous moment. Like, I haven't been using SLR cameras, studying photography and processing negs/prints for the last oo, 12 years |: I want to know how YOU understand it...]

3. How is focusing on objects reflected in a mirror a different process from say, focusing on objects displayed or projected onto a screen [of any sort]?



*In this instance Metric/Imperial equivalents are acceptable and any difference(s) between either lack significance to the question.



Please ignore any heavy brain-drain and thought suckage in this question. More conducive to thought than having a bath... LONG TRAIN JOURNEYS, UNACCOMPANIED. I know what I'm trying to ask, but putting it into words? >< EEEEEEEEEE...
Worst part is, there's much more in this question than I can really get down right now. Maybe another time...

I got kinda mad the other day and started punching things. Now the swelling's gone down and it doesn't hurt, but the nuckle on my right ring finger rachets every time I move it. It doesn't hurt, and I can still move my finger just fine, it just feels funny.

Should I be worried and go see a doc or wait and see if it goes away?

I spent about 4 hours yesterday making a present for my boyfriend.  Last night he hung up on me for saying "I really need to see you tomorrow" because I was bugging him about it?  Anyways, I was going to finish the sentence with "..to give you your present."

I was, obviously, butthurt and cried.  If I had hung up on him like that and not called back all night, he would have broken up with me most likely.  (Yes, he's THAT much of an asshole)

Anyways.  Should I throw away the present?  I know he doesn't deserve it, but I put a lot of skillz to the test on this ): I'm proud of my creation. ):

I didn't get as good of grades as I'd like this year, and since I need to get into college and all, I was trying to think of good ways to treat myself for good grades, a reward system. Unfortunately, it's really hard to reward yourself, but I thought if anyone would know how, the honorable QC Gurus would. I was thinking of something based on how many As or Bs I get, or what my GPA is, both at the semester and the end of the year (or perhaps by the quarter). I'm not totally set in that, though, so if you get ideas, let them out.

So, do you have any ideas for a reward system like this?
Have you ever done something like this for yourself? Did it work?

I heard last night that the reason some religious people dont drink or smoke is because of the commandment " thou shall not kill" because well, smoking and drinking does harm to your body. I dont know if this is the ACTUAL reason why they dont drink or smoke and i'm not talking about EVERYONE that is religous , just some

but if that is why they believe they should not drink or smoke.. then would eating fast food be a sin for them? since it harms your body?

I'm just trying to point out that  religion makes less and less sence everyday.

ETA, since that one has been sort of asked already:
If you've seen them, what kind of name is Scorpius, I mean seriously?
ETA again, since I'm more awake now: if you trust the scans, do you think this is all JK Rowling's plot to have a story she can fall back on if she runs out of money? She said no more Harry Potter.. but she didn't say no books about later generations.

Sexuality.

I have a question about sexuality for those who are knowledgeable about that kind of thing.

Suppose that someone is sexually attracted to and has sex with men, women, trans women and genderqueer bio. males, but is NOT sexually attracted to and does not have sex with trans men or genderqueer bio. females. How would you define that person's sexuality? Bisexual doesn't quite cover it, but presumably pansexual is out, too, since that implies possible sexual attraction to all genders and sexes and the above person excludes a couple. Is there some term between bisexual and pansexual that would apply? And yes, I realise that labelling someone's sexuality isn't necessary, but if you had to label the above person's sexuality, what label would you apply?

As always, both snarky and serious answers are welcome.

Today is my boyfriend's full day off work (he works two jobs so it's rare he has an entire day off of work). It's already 4:30pm and I haven't heard from him - he told me he was going to go fishing with his father, and yesterday asked if I wanted to go, I told him "sure, if you want".

I called him about an hour ago but it seems his phone is dead... I don't know where he's at or if he actually went fishing with his dad. A friend just called me and left a voicemail asking if I wanted to hang out today.

Should I go hang with my friend if I can (dunno if I can get there, I have no transportation and it doesn't sound like she does either)? If I do that may mean I won't be able to hang with my boyfriend and that would make me very sad. :( But at the same time I'm sorta bored sitting here doing nothing.

Is there an appearance requirement for working at different stores? Most places, you see average people working there, but in stores like Forever 21 for example, people are not necessarily hot, but they look and dress a certain way like they went through hair and makeup before being allowed to appear, or like they only hire people that dress and look a certain way. In other places you see b-boys working at tennis shoe stores and kids with pink hair at Hot Topic. How do they judge you that way when hiring you?

You all know what page protectors do, right?  You put in a sheet of paper, and it's protected from the elements, but you can also remove the paper from time to time.

Is there any such thing as a magazine protector?  I have a magazine with autographs on the front, and I want to preserve it.  Anything with adhesives IS NOT an option.  Tearing the cover off is also not an option.  It's not a thick magazine like Cosmo - my magazine only has about 100 pages, if that.  I want something that I can put my magazine into to keep it protected, but I also want to take it out so I can look through it from time to time.

I'd rather not get anything along the lines of a picture frame, but if I did, about how big of one might I need to get?

Now, my father is a very rich man. He is very good with money, but not so good at communicating. Actually, a few months ago, we stopped speaking. I have no desire to have a relationship with him, or he with me.
I just got a bill from a collection agency for the amount. I just moved to a new city and I can't find a job. I don't know where next month's rent is coming from, let alone where $2000 is coming from. I really don't want this to affect my credit.
I'm super pissed and freaked out right now. I can't go to him about it, and I don't really want my mom to know about this (plus, she probably can't help me).
What are my options? Can I make a payment plan? Will that hurt my credit? Can I call the electric company and work out a payment plan through them instead? I don't have a credit card (I just haven't ever gotten one) and I have basically no credit history, so I can't get one with a high enough limit to pay it off.
I've never dealt with this before. Is it really as bad as I think it is?

Did anybody else watch Rock of Love?
(VH1's Flavor of Love spin off with Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison, trying to find the love of his life)

It's almost over and I'm pretty sure I just wasted an hour of my life.

BUT I LOVE IT.

Does anyone else HATE the word "super"? Am I the only one that cringes everytime I hear it? Do you say super? Why does it seem like everyone is saying super these days, when once upon a time, it seemed to be only a certain flambouyant male friend of mine who said it?

Skunk

Everybody knows that skunk smell, right?

I think my neighbour's little dog just got sprayed. I went over to see if he was okay, and the smell was so horrible I thought I was going to be sick. It was almost chemical and very, very acrid. Would the smell of freshly sprayed skunk musk be that much more sickening up close - not just a bit stronger, but like punch-you-in-the-face-want-to-barf foul?

because I'm obsessed with this movie/book right now

Have you ever seen The Peaceful Warrior?

Collapse )

What did you think, if so? Have you read the book? If so, was it before or after the movie? Any other thoughts?

I loved it, and I am totally obsessing about it. We bought the DVD last night and the book came with it, so I watched the movie and now I am reading the book. I really feel my whole perception of life shifting, in a good way. I love movies like this, though.

What imaginary world from a book/videogame/TV show/movie would you most like to live in?

I'd live in Morrowind from the Elder Scrolls game. Specifically, I'd like in the city of Balmora.

what is this movie.

I dont know if all trailers for a certain movie are the same everywhere. but.. anyways,
It was in TRANSFORMERS in the previews before the movie.

the trailer started out with all these people at some guys birthday party all haveing a good time.. then a sort of earth quake happens and everyone rushes outside. Next thing you see, is explosions and cars being thrown, and someone is like "It sounds like a Lion!!!" because there is roaring in the back ground.

1) does anyone know the name of this movie they are advertising? For some reason I cant remember it for my life, and its driving me crazy.

saying "I love you"

Who wants to share the story of when you or your (previous or current!) partner first said "I love you"? 

Did one say it and the other say it back?  Did one say it and the other not return the feeling and eventually said it later (or never at all)?  How far into the relationship was it?  Was it during a special event or just blurted out during sex?  :P  details!

mathematics or natural sciences(techincally math is a science, but I'm thinking more along the lines of chemistry, physics, etc). Which is cooler?

My vote is with math all the way.

How would you describe yourself politically? Don't tell me "republican, democrat" or that. I'd rather use words like "conservative, populist, liberal". They're more precise.
I'm personally a libertarian.

Have you ever played Risk? Do you like it? What's your favorite continent to conquer? I always go after South America.
