I'm getting a standard ear piercing for the first time in a couple days. I've read up on how to tend to them after it happens. A lot of sites say not to remove the studs for 4-6 weeks to prevent the hole from closing.
Can I not remove them at all for a month? Can I swap them in and out for different earrings if I do it immediately (washing them of course to prevent infection)? How long should I wait before I can change earrings?
Edit - Thank you to those who actually answered my question. My question was NOT where should I go to get them pierced or how should I do it, and I have no idea why everyone decided to bring in their agenda in on this post.
Does anyone know where I can watch The Big Lebowski online? I'm at work and I have a terrible hankering to watch it.
If not, then just feel free to leave comments about how awesome it is, and favorite quotes...

There is a chance that I may be in Edinburgh next Saturday night, and I want to go clubbing. However, I've never been out in Edinburgh, and haven't a clue about any clubs.
So, please, can anyone tell me what clubs there are, where I should go, where not to go, if there are any clubs in the city centre?
* I'm looking for something very similar to a Liquid club [why is there not one in Edi? =(]
* I am 18 but the person I may be taking with me is 30, so I need somewhere without age restrictions.
Thank you mucherly!
I sold something to someone online and he payed me with Western Union. He gave me the code to retrieve the payment but when I went to W-Union, they said the code was wrong. So, he scanned the paper from W-Union. It's the grey copy and it's all written in pen, even the tracking code.
Is the grey copy the right thing he showed me, and is it normal that these things are all written in pen?
Canon Powershot SD1000 or Canon Powershot SD800IS?
I'm trying to pick one out to purchase. The SD800IS is more expensive, but has better ratings. Is it worth it?
Which is worse...

What's your favorite breakfast food?
Do you have your favorite breakfast food on a regular basis, or is just once in a while?
Once in a while, so it makes it that much better when I have it. Plus, I think if I had bacon every day, I'd be dead by now. It's so not healthy... but it's so damn good.
A little bird just flew into my office (I work at a yacht club and have the door open to get air). After scaring the shit out of my by flying into the window and making a huge noise, he continued to fly into the other 4 windows in my office. I removed the screen from its favorite window to see if it would fly out, but instead it flew upstairs to the offices.
Is it mean that I laughed at the poor little bird? I tried to help it out but it didn't realize it.
Also, has anyone ever had a bird hit their window so hard that it left a mark of the entire bird's body, but the bird was able to fly away, unhurt? This happened at my mom's house, and we had an imprint of it's body on our picture window, we could see the details of the feathers and everything but it was able to fly away, no problem.
This upcoming week at camp is themed Harry Potter. I'm thinking for the "A boom chicka boom!" repeat song we'll have a verse be, "I said a BOOM ACCIO BROOM!" but I still need to figure out the other line, which in the original is "A boom chicka rocka chicka rocka chicka boom" so it could either be "a boom accio broom and ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ _oom!" or "a boom accio _____ accio ____ accio broom!"
Any suggestions? Thanks!!!
1. Is it possible to remove dried acrylic paint from clothing without damaging said clothing?
The show Army Wives (on lifetime tv) is absed on an actual book, Who's the author of the book?
I've googled it, imdb'ed it and still can't find it.....
Does anyone know the recipe for sludge? That's what the craft fair I bought some at called it, but I'm sure there's other names for it. It's sort of slimy feeling but isn't actually 'wet' and it isn't runny, but it can be stretched out thin. It doesn't get caught on clothes, but you can't put it on paper. If it dries out you can wet it again and it'll work again.
Anyone know what I'm talking about and/or know where to find a recipe?
And, so that more people can answer this entry, what are some good starter conversation threads for a quiet fan forum's general chat section? More than just 'what's your favourite colour?'. Or if you're really good, what would be some good 'on topic' conversations/threads for a Lano and Woodley fanforum (guys in my avatar), The Brittas Empire, the Pagan books by Catherine Jinks, or the tv series Maid Marian and Her Merry Men? You don't need to know these shows and books to answer that one, just general on topic stuff would do.
Are you a member of any quiet/non popular fandoms? What ones?
1:Would you ever date someone younger than you? Older than you?
2:Do you have any hidden talents?
3:Do you prefer boxers or briefs?
4:Have you ever written a love letter?
5:Have you ever laughed so hard you peed in your pants?

I'm going to the store in a couple of hours to get some school supplies to take with me to college. As a rising freshman, I have yet to experience quite the workload college has to offer. So I have a couple of questions for my collegiate friends:
1. What do/did you find worked best in class? Binders, notebooks or folders? (I've got an intro to education class, a basic academic seminar, mathematical modeling, theatrical heiritage & sociology.)
2. Do/did you take a backpack, or did you just carry your things with you from class to class?
3. I have a pink planner book .. thing that I used during the school year to record assignments, etc. Is this going to be the best method, or will I need to do something a bit more drastic? (I have a dry-erase board that has the days of the weeks as magnets on it that I will probably put on my desk to assist in that department) I will be in the honors program, and taking six courses, so things definitely won't be easy street for me academically.
4. For those of you who have already graduated or are at least upperclassmen, what is one piece of advice you would give to your younger, rising-freshman self?
the wikipedia entry for tim kasher of the band cursive says that his birthday, for some reason, falls on both august 19th & july 8th. which one is correct?
How does one get the permission from the gov't (or whoever) to have a yard sale? I live in Illinois, if that affects anything.

So my boyfriend's father looooves this Italian beef sandwich thing. I remember a while ago someone shipped their family a big pack of frozen beef, gravy, rolls, sweet peppers, etc and everyone loved it. The packaging was full of little flyers about how you can order online and get it shipped anywhere, blah blah.
So now I'm trying to find it online and it is DRIVING ME INSANE! The company it came from was something like Perillo's/Perrilo's/Perrillo's and I'm fairly sure they're based in Illinois. No matter how many ways I google this I cannot find their friggin' website or any trace of their existence.
So, can anyone track it down for me? Maybe someone from up North?
I have an open house at two...and I have to be out of the house at 1:45 (it's 1:20 right now) and I can only come back around 2:30
I don't have my car with me.
Where should I go?
Should I just..walk aimlessly around town?
How would I go about removing the letters from the keys on my keyboard? I want the original keys on it, but some of the letters have worn off and some haven't- I'd like them all to be gone.
EDIT: I tried rubbing alcohol and acetone nail polish remover- neither seemed to help. I don't have sand paper but my emery board didn't do much either.I was gonna learn to be patient, rearrange the keys and wait for the other letters to rub off on their own, but the keys are slightly ergonomically designed so there are slight slopes to all of them that make it less than ideal to switch them up.
Any other ideas?

What would you do in that situation?
Just curious, I was watching Super Sweet 16 and can see some of those people turning into raging bridezillas.
Mkay. Girl 1 dates girl 2. 1 & 2 fall in love.
Girl 1 gets locked up for two years, loses contact with girl 2.
Girl 1 gets out of lock up, reconnects with girl 2 (who now has a daughter).
2 expresses leftover feelings for 1, wants to get married and raise children.
1 still has feelings...but also now has a loving, great, wonderful boyfriend.
1 doesn't want to upset 2 by telling her that she's dating someone.
And 1 has to see 2 in a week, for a 'sleepover'.
And by sleepover, I mean they'll probably do the hibbity jibbity.
1 needs to be loyal to her bf, and needs to gently break the news to 2, while simultaneously controlling her urges to touch 2's breasts.
How does 1 do this?
1. If you had a baby, what would you name him/her? (If you have a kid, what name did you settle on?
2. What's the worst name you ever heard?

The small of my back hurts, and I normally use this chair at work to crack it, but I have three days off.
2] When's the last time you got something free/discounted? Why?
Everyone at my job was dead tired so I went to Dunkin Donuts to buy 8 of us some coffee. The lady behind the counter was complaining about how she tried to buy a lighter but was refused because of her age. I offered her my lighter and she was so grateful she only charged me for two coffees.
3] Does anyone know a site for buying cute earrings?

2.when was the last time you saw a movie? what was it? was it any good?

1- How would you feel if the fate of someone's life was in your hands? Take this as literal as you feel like.
2- When stressed (really stressed, not small-stress) do you eat more, less, or find there to be no change in your eating habits?
3- Are there any chopsticks in the building you are currently in?
4- What should I order for dinner? Just for me, woe. :(

Can I get my yearly car inspection in a different state than my car is registered in?
For those of you who went to college out of state and took your car with you, how did you do that? Did you change your registration, etc? I'm moving from Texas to New Jersey for a 2 year grad school program next week and I'm wondering if it's absolutely necessary that I register my car there. I don't really want to, but if I have to I will.
1) When was the last time you were really, truly scared?
2) Have you ever been mugged?
3) - If so, did they have a weapon? Did you give them what they wanted? Did you try to defend yourself? Where did this happen?
- If not, how do you think you would react? If you were bigger than the person, would you try to take them on?
4) Have you ever beaten somebody up? How bad?
5) What is one of the coolest things you've gotten to do?
(I ask because my husband and I each got lost in New York last night, separately, and some guy tried to mug him, and my husband kicked the guy's ass, really, really badly at about 2am. He was hysterical when we finally were able to find each other after 4 hours of getting lost on the subways. Again, separately. On an up note, I sat ONSTAGE for a Broadway musical and it was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had in my life.)
To the religious:
Do people outside of your religion offend you when they say they don't believe in it?
How do I find out what my accent is? It doesn't sound like the predominant accent in any of the places I grew up, and it doesn't sound entirely like either of my parents' accents. What gives?

What's the best rap song I've never heard of?
If you don't like rap just skip it I guess.
Inspired by the rap question...
what songs can you absolutely not avoid dancing to? or just what kind of good dance music do you have? I don't mean techno...more like pop or hip hop..

Paging Dr. LJ!
Ok, guys, my ear hurts. I can't even remember the last time I had an earache, but this blows.
My husband asked me if I had an earache or swimmer's ear - I don't think it's swimmer's ear because I don't feel like I have water in my ear, and the only time I'm in water is in the shower. It started yesterday, but my throat also hurt. My throat doesn't hurt anymore except when I'm swallowing.
What can I do to make this feel better? I read on the internet to try a 50/50 vinegar/water mix - has anyone tried this?
Why do people put cotton balls in their ear when they have an earache?
When was the last time you had an earache?
I'll go to the doctor if I have to, but it's a pain because I don't have a 'regular' doctor picked out because I never need to go to the doctor.
What is a good, but free, program I can download to unzip .rar files?
all the ones i've seen so far look sketchy.
if you had a child or friend that had sound-related sensitivity issues (as in loud noises induced migranes, anxiety, or panic attacks), would you put them in loud noise situations to "train" them to deal with loud noises?

How do you define Khakis? Pictures welcome.
1) Am I the only one who gets nervous about calling people on the phone?
2) Am I the only one who hates hearing other people talk on the phone?
3) Is it rude to ask someone, even a close friend, how much money they've won in a legal settlement? (Note: I wasn't the one who asked)
4) Do you get annoyed when people start cracking up at their own joke/funny story?
5) What are some good scary movies or thrillers I should watch? I've already seen a ton of them, including the Saw series, The Ring Series, The Grudge series, The Hitcher, Darkness, Hide and Seek, The Return...
I hate those videos on American sites that can't be watched outside the US. Is there a program that bypasses this BS?
has anyone ever given up cracking their knuckles?
is it possible?
how did you do it?
1. I just acquired a full-size, real traffic light. It's about 4.5 feet tall and it works. What should I do with it?
2. How do you organize your photo albums (by year, etc.)?
3. Who is your favourite artist?

Did NO ONE miss me while I was on vacation these past two weeks?
....did anyone even realize I was gone?
All my friends were surprised when I called to tell them I was back. :(
why are you still awake, shouldn't you be in bed!?
i'm currently staying at someone's house cat-sitting for the entire month while they're on vacation. i was warned that the cats were rather spoiled, especially the younger one, who is a male that's about a year old.
he's a very sweet cat and loves to play, but he's a little TOO playful. anytime i lay down in bed to go to sleep, he comes over and nips, scratches, etc..and will not leave me alone no matter how much i tell him "NO!" or nudge him off the bed.
a simple solution to this VERY annoying problem would be to close the bedroom door, but the apartment is just one large room, the only separate room being the bathroom. i don't want to lock him in the bathroom every night because it gets really humid in there, plus, i'd feel terrible.
i even tried barricading the (doorless) doorway to the bedroom once with suitcases, nightstands, and a punching bag, and he STILL GOT IN.
i'm really getting fed up with this. i haven't slept without waking up at least five times during the night in a month!
can anyone suggest anything before i go crazy?
For those of you who have taken an African/women studies class, what's the homework like?
Have you ever told your SO or sexual partner they had vagina/cum/spooge/vajayjay/dick/etc. breath?
Have they ever told YOU that?
Where were you, physically, when you lost your virginity?
Did you have oral sex before having regular sex? (Not immediately before, but sometime in the past, whether it was days, months, or years)
Have you masturbated today?
I keep trying to register for classes online and so far have only been able to add one out of the five I need to be a full time student. I keep getting this error, "PREQ and TEST SCORE-ERROR", when i try to register for my required classes. The school website is pretty much useless, any idea what it means?
Have you ever been for a ride in a hot air balloon? How was it?
If not, would you?
Has anyone ever tried those things online where you take a survey and supposedly get paid for it?
Did you actually get paid? How much?
What website did you use?
Do you have or use to have a fake ID?
How'd it work out for you? Did you ever get caught?
Does anyone have Helio as a cell phone provider?
How do you feel they compare to the larger companies like Verizon, AT&T, etc?
I'm concerned about switching from a major provider to them because I don't know what their service will be like in comparison. I mean, I know they use Sprint's network, which I've been on for years with no real complaints, but I guess I'm just hesitant to switch to a new company without hearing some experiences first.
