Can you describe your first, or your earliest memory...

Car journey?

Train journey?

Bus/Coach journey (greyhound, national express etc)?

Plane journey?

Boat trip?

Car: Earliest I can remember, my granddad taking me and my family home after visiting him and his family, in an old 3 door austin metro. Navy blue with no back seatbelts.

Train: I think going to beach with my mum when I was 6.

Coach: I remember going down south to our supposed new home. It had a toilet and air con, and when you're 4 that's the coolest thing ever.

Plane: Flying to the us via iceland about 4 years ago.

Boat: Can't remember anything big, just a row boat ride with my dad.

You're riding in one of those outside glass elevators. There's one other person with you, of the gender you're attracted to, and an attractive specimen at that. Suddenly, the sky is lit by what looks like a burst of approaching light. "It's a nuclear missle! We're all going to die!", the other person says. You panic, and maybe cry. "In these last few minutes of life, wanna go out with some frantic, end-of-the-word sexin?". Your answer is ____

Yes. Let's go out with a bang as we go out with a bang
No. Impending self destruction or not, I still don't know you
I'll just lie here and go fetal. The other person can hump my unresponsive body all they want before it's all over

I'll veto all of the previous selections except for the first one. You've all engaged in passionate 'we're-going-to-die' lovemaking, lubricated with your own frustrated tears. The nuclear missle that was approaching nears your building and bursts into a brilliant array of fireworks. Guess your life wasn't in danger after all. What do you say to your elevator stranger-with-benefit?

"Oops. Our bad. Hey, let's pretend the last 5 minutes never happened"
"So...wanna get a cup of coffee?"
"OMG! What's that? That twinkling thing! Venus, you say? I bet it's another missle. What'll ya say we go for round 2? I'm on top this time"
"Rape! Pervert! Police!"
Awkward silence until the doors open, and you both scurry away
The other person bursts out laughing and says "I can't believe you fell for the ol Chicken Little stunt! Bwahaha. Wait'll I tell my friends", at which point you kill the other person with your shoe
"Thank God it wasn't the end of the world. I wouldn't want my last few minutes engaged in such a lousy lay. You! Take this second chance to watch some porn and get a clue"

In a related impending death question, you go to the doctor and are informed that you have 3 HOURS to live. How do you spend your last 3 hours of life?

Calling up and visiting everyone I care about and telling them I love them
Making all the necessary arrangements for my death, and the distribution of destruction of all the porn, kinky or drug-related material in my room
Mass killing spree. Then, as they surround me, I surrender. Won't it piss them off to know that in a few hours, I die and get away with it
With the hottest prostitute/escort/piece of ass I can find
Getting stoned or drunk off my ass. This way, I'm in the right proper mood to accept my upcoming exit off this ball of mud
WoW or chatting. I'll finish my life the way I lived it: without a point
Suicide. I can't take the wait. I'd rather go out on my terms
Cryogenics. STAT!
I'll take the subway and sit on the train for the next few hours. I pity the fool who ends up sitting next to my dead ass and not being aware of it until they watch the news later
ZOMG! This is so sad. I must make a weepy emo post in my journal
This is so ridiculous.

I'm gonna need a lot of books soon.

1. What is the last really good book you read?

2. Do you tend to gravitate toward a certain genre of books, or are you someone who reads everything?

2a. If you only read specific genres, what are they?

3. Care to recommend me a book?

En El Tiempo De Las Mariposas. Oh my God, so good.

2. I especially like history and biographies, and for the most part can't stand science-fiction/fantasy, though I did read Harry Potter. Right now though, I'm super into books pertaining to Latin American revolutions. I think I've read every biography of Che Guevara out there.

morning everyone.
i ahve to go to the dentist today for a "consultation" its  a orthodontist i think? dunno never been to one, anyways I was told during consultations they dont do anything to your teeth yet, like take x-rays and what not, that they only talk to you about what will happend if i get braces and look at my payment options and stuff

i'm just wondering if this is true? cause I always brush me teeth and not eat before the dentist but I am starving and i'm gonna get something to eat before going and wont ahve time to brush my teeth again in between... do you think they will care if they do look at my teeth?

I called the place now cause its open and they told me they were only taking pictures and talking about payment options and what will happend

Paging Dr. LJ, you have a patient waiting

Hola! For all of us with eye problems out there. Have you every experienced a "Floater"  ( A dark speck in your eyes that you generally see when you look at a plain background? ) if you went to your eye doctor for it, what did he do? Anything?  Should I go see my specialist that I saw for 15 years ( and do a two hour drive to see him, if I can get in soon ), or some other doctor I've never seen before?

Collapse )

Also, what is the longest you would expect to wait at the doctors office before leaving? ( if it was a non medical emergency ) 

1. Never had this sort of thing before, definately going to the doctors office to have it checked out.
2. I waited for an hour, then rescheduled an appointment and left. No one was getting in in the last half hour that I was waiting, and it was for the entire specialist floor. Not just my doctor.

Appropriate Punishment for Animal Cruelty?

So my husband came in this morning from getting coffee and told me about this story he heard on the radio. Being animal lovers and Pit Bull parents ourselves, we were of course horrified about this story and started talking about what we thought would be the appropriate punishment for serious abject animal cruelty like this. What are your thoughts? If you had the power, what would your sentence be for Mr. Vick?

Be the good person?

Okay, so this weekend I'm going to get a chance to see my favorite voice actor EVER, in person. I'll likely get his autograph at least once, but he's doing two signings and I want to try to go to both.

My husband's good friend, who is also my friend (I knew him before I knew my husband actually, he's one of the reasons we met) is also a huge fan of this actor. Said actor was the voice of his favorite character in his favorite show.

I'm not guaranteed two autographs.

Should I:
-Be selfish! Even if you get both autographs, make them both for yourself! You're the one going all the way there and waiting in line for hours. Plus, you love half his characters and can't pick a favorite thing for him to sign anyway.

-Be the good friend and great person! Get your stuff signed first, but wait in the second line to get something signed for your friend, then surprise him with it when he least expects it.

One more question: going to a celebrity signing, is it in poor taste to print up a picture on your computer/photo printer for them to sign? Since this guy voices anime characters, I don't have any way to get an 8x10 glossy except to print it myself. And if I wanted to get something for my friend, I would need to print it myself. It wouldn't be the actor's picture though, it would be his character.

Sorry for the tl;dr.

Germs in the bathroom?

For the women in the group...(and the men if you think it appropriate)

If you are one of those people who can't stand sitting on a public toilet seat, I ask why?

Is it because of people like you who get urine on the toilet seat and don't wipe it up? (since it's generally pretty hard to get urine on the seat when you're actually sitting on it)

And, what are you afraid of exactly? Is it the germs on the backs of people's legs? (Are you afraid that most people have some kind of strange "back of the thigh" germs that you may contract?)

And have you ever stopped to think that the germs acquired from using toilet paper are on your hands as well and hence living on your pants since you buttoned up before washing them?

So again I ask, if you are one of those people who can't stand sitting on a public toilet seat, why?

I'm just curious because I think the whole "hover" idea is stupid. If the seat is dry, I am sure it's fine. I have yet to see the headline about the woman (or man) who died from the germs she acquired from sitting on a public toilet seat, which is probably cleaned more often than your toilet seat at home. But maybe I missed that headline?

As an aside, if you walk into a stall and the seat is clean but the toilet is not flushed, would you change stalls or just flush it and do your business?

I have flushed and done my business, but I have also walked away. In both instances I just shook my head kind of like I do when people don't return their carts to the cart holder in the grocery store parking lot. But that's a whole other question...

I read the newspaper this morning and rolled my eyes. Have Harry Potter omg-don't-spoil-it-people-are-jerks fans really lost that much perspective of what the important issues are in the world?

(I ask this because I'm fairly certain they would cry if some one told them the ending (which is rude, but not heartbreaking), but can't be bothered to care much about [insert your pet heartbreaking human rights atrocity issue/international issue right here].)

EDIT: Before this gets me too far up the creek without a paddle (which it already has), I'm not saying that caring about world events and Harry Potter are mutually exclusive. They aren't. I do find a lot to shake my head at and laugh at, though.

You open the door and there are space aliens! Big green ones! They're willing to give you a cure for cancer and the recipe for cold fusion, and in return, all they want is to perform an anal probe on you, in the privacy of your bedroom. However, their probing equipment is located on their body, somewhere around their hips. Do you take one for the team to improve the human race?

I shoot them in the face, and hope they're carrying the goodies on them

For those of you that said yes, you'd give up the anus for the good of your species, you're in mid-probe, and for some reason, the probe involves a lot of thrusting. When the probe is completed, they say the cure and the recipe will be mailed to you in 2-3 weeks. As they're leaving, you notice a zipper on the back of their necks. They walk over, not to a spaceship, but to a parked rambler on the curb. What do you do?

"Oh boy! I can't wait for the cure for cancer to come! I might be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize!"
Notch this one up to live-and-learn and what not to fall for next time you see aliens on your doorstep
Call 911 and report an illegal anal probing by two guys in a rambler with plates reading...
The joke's on them. I like anal play. I would have given up the browneye for nothing, and they had to wear clumsy alien suits to bed
Lock and load. There will be a reckoning! I'm coming with a shotgun, and hell's coming with me!

Why do you suppose space aliens are obsessed with anal probes?

Pure scientifc data. Obviously such a probe gives away a lot of information on our digestive system, our diet, and exactly the nature of organisms we carry in our bodies
Like Japan, they're a little too preoccupied with butts. Anal fixation
They don't understand the human anatomy. They think they're looking down our throats. "Say aaahhhhh"
They're intergalactic frat boys. They get liquored up on weekends, drive down to earth, pick up a farmer in Wyoming, and do a train on him, and erase his memories afterwards
Humans have the finest ass in the known universe, that's why. EARTH FTW!

After several years of not talking, said parent (who happens to be slowly dying halfway around the world of his/her THIRD round of lung cancer) fires you an e-mail more or less telling you that you're an immature brat and claims that your (new) marriage is a sham.

Remember, you've not spoken with this parent for years and they've never met your spouse.

Then, they tell you that you need counseling.

What then hell do you do with that?

(Incidentally, I sent back an appropriately livid response. My sister, who is close with this parent, told me to speak with their spouse, with whom I've never spoken. WASTE OF TIME, Y/N?)

1.  What sorts of topics could I read up on that would allow me to converse more easily with and endear myself to a group of vaguely-nerdy guys in their early and mid twenties? 

All I have on the list now is comics.  (edit: I'm already somewhat knowledgeable about Star Wars trivia.)

2.  What is the most interesting article you've found recently? 
Neocons on a Cruise: What Conservatives Say When They Think We're Not Listening

3.  What's your favorite nonfiction book?

I really like Acid Dreams by Martin Lee, and I also really love the book On Being Authentic by Charles Guignon, but mostly because I just finished reading it.

4.  What is the last new word you learned? (also, if you provide a definition, that would be awesome.)
Ignostic: one who expresses ignorance of any knowledge of a god or gods due to finding theism incoherent.

Given that 16 is the age of consent in the UK, so there would be no legal repercussions:

What is the maximum age at which it would be uncreepy to screw Daniel Radcliffe, and would you?

Why I ask.
'Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe is happy to have sex with girls who are only interested in him because of his fame.

The 17-year-old actor insists he is too young to settle down and is keen to take advantage of any groupies he has.

Why are pandas black and white?

It makes sense for zebras and cows 'cause it breaks up their outlines and makes it hard for predators to single them out
but aren't pandas solitary?

Why be black and white if you're surrounded by green?

It makes no sense, damnit!

Scary Stuff

What was the scariest thing you ever lived through/experienced?

I lived and worked 10 blocks away from NYC's pipeline explosion today, and I also lived very close to a natural gas pipeline explosion in '94.  No natural disasters, though.

I bought a dress from Delias via internet over a year ago but it was too big and had a rip. I meant to return it but forgot about it and it kind of got lost in my mess of a room. I emailed them but almost a week later still have no response. Anyone know if they would take it back for store credit after all this time?
