What would you do in this situation:
You're at a video store, looking for videos. A man comes up out of nowhere, a man who really isn't your type, and says, "excuse me, I just want to say I think you are beautiful" and then goes on a bit about how you're beautiful, about how he thinks everything happens for a reason and that the two of you were at that store at the same time for a reason. He talks about his favorite bible story in which a king marries a Jew unknowingly, then decides he wants to kill all Jews, but then the woman says, "Wait, I'm a jew", and then he doesn't kill the Jews, and compares that to meeting you in the store. Says he feels so comfortable with you, feels like he belongs next to you, doesn't want to leave you, and you give him your number just to get him to leave you alone. He doesn't give up creepy vibes (even though what he's saying is creepy, it's more just him trying very hard to win you over), but you're not really interested based on the outside package.
then later he sends you a text message: "[yourname], you are indisputably beautiful. Gosh, you made my heart stop for a moment tonight. Please call me tomorrow. Good night."

2.What kind of pencil do you prefer? The normal wood pencil, the woodless pencil or mechanical pencil?
I have a new computer. How can I get all my music off the old computer and on to the new one? I don't have wireless in my dorm, and my boyfriend's apartment does but I don't really want to drag both computers over there and set up a network to move the files. Also, the old computer is a PC and the new one is a Mac, if that matters.
My university says that illegal downloading is the most common offense on campus, but they can't see what people download so they don't really know when it's illegal. However, they CAN see what people upload, so that's what people usually get busted for. Basically it sounded like they were saying that if you use torrents, don't seed, and if you use limewire, don't allow sharing. But if I'm downloading a file from a site like mediafire and not uploading it for anyone else to use, that's okay, right? I mean, aside from the fact that it's probably still illegal. =|

I have a really important follow-up interview tomorrow for a marketing manager of a mall. During my phone interview, the guy seemed to think I was pretty qualified for the position, but I don't.
I really, really want the job, I just don't think I have enough PR/marketing experience. I am going to put together a fake event so he can see what I'm capable of, but other than that I'm at a loss.
How do I make them believe I'm qualified for the job, when I secretly don't think I am?
Any other general interview advice? Dos/don'ts?
What are some suggestions for a hair straightener, TQC? I'm not going to be straightening my hair every day, so I don't need a professional-level one or anything like that, but I don't want a cheapo shitty one either. How much should I expect to spend? I have about $120AUD atm as a budget. My hair is very long, slightly wavy and kind of frizzy in some places, if it helps any.

I'm a member of a few fabulous ipod video communities, but would like to get movies in AVI (or higher size/quality) format. Bittorrent is my friend, and was wondering if there are communities for AVI lovers as well on LJ? Searches don't come up with much.
do you think it's a good idea to teach your children what racial slur words mean? Not in the sense of using them around them, but just letting them know what these slurs mean.
I'm not looking to start a flame war, but i've always wondered. When I was growing up, I never knew what any of those words meant - my parents didn't want me to know, and while I can understand why, when I got older it got me in a lot of awkward situations... it doesn't help that sometimes I can be a complete dingdong.
I'm particularly interested in the opinions of POC.
Hey TQC! I am planning my Sweet Sixteen (yay!) and trying to decide how to tell people to dress.

Why in the world does my chinchilla's water bottle keep spilling all over her cage all of a sudden?
At first I thought she had chewed on it or something, but yesterday I got her a NEW water bottle, and she didn't even have time to chew on it before it started doing the same.
Heck, it's not even spilling - it's just that the little metal ball things just seem not to have any suction powers anymore, since they just let the water drip out, instead of holding it in.
In Sociology, part of the stages of human development (I'm fairly sure it refers to completion of self, not the eight stages of man), there is a fairly recently introduced topic that refers to an adult taking time to search within themselves to complete their self-image; if I remember right it is the final and ultimate achievement a human can make as far as completion of self goes, not something everyone can or does accomplish, and has been debated heavily as to whether it should be applied to this area of study. There is a specific title, for that stage and for the overall topic, it is going to drive me nuts. Anyone know the title or can point me in the right direction?

So, last night while I was napping on my boyfriend's couch, apparently I started to put my hand down his pants. He and his little brother were playing video games, and his brother felt awkward and went upstairs. I don't remember any of this, but I'm equally amused and embarrassed. My boyfriend was super, super amused. I just know if I saw some girl fondling MY brother, I'd get out of the room too.
What's the most embarrassing thing you've ever done in your sleep?
I think I should just laugh this off, my boyfriend's brother is a cool kid. Good idea? At least it wasn't in front of his mom, right?
Have you ever read any self-help books? If so, would you recommend them?

I'm looking to get another MP3 player, this time a Creative Zen. My last one was an iPod, so all my music is on iTunes. I assume it wont be a problem, but I thought I'd ask you guys, Zen works with iTunes, right?
Also, I'm looking to get a laptop later this year and want to get all my music from my moms desk top onto my laptop. Do you guys know if there's any way to transfer my music from my Zen onto the laptop? I know I needed some special soft ware if I wanted to do it with my iPod...
I got my credit card in the mail about a month ago and haven't yet received my first statement or anything.

I have a Capital One Gold card.

Where can I buy a pair of nice, opaque black pantyhose? Most pantyhose I come across has a sheen to it which I don't like, and stuff I find that's nice and opaque usually turns out to be leggings, which I don't like. Are there any brands or specific pantyhose you'd recommend or suggest?
Thanks in advance!
PS: I live in Southern California, so I might not know about/might not have smaller chain stores and stuff found in other regions.
What can you make of this?
Is there an *actual* reason as to why some people snort when they laugh, and some people don't?
I've always thought I snorted because I was trying to hold back my laugh, as I have a VERY loud laugh, but then earlier I laughed at something and I still snorted (I didn't try to hold back my laugh as I'm home alone). Odd.\
Do you laugh?
EDITED AGAIN (because I'm an idiot)

mine: I just made baked salmon with rice, asparagus, and a delicious knock off of those cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster. I'm quite proud. even though salmon is really easy to make, my oven being on makes it hot as fuck in my house & I'm just glad I got through it.

1.Where do you live?
2.Do you like it? Why or why not?
3.If you don't like it, where would you rather live?
2.NO because it's way too hot down here all the time, there is no winter, and there's no real city around here to do things except Disney and all the tourist attractions.
3.BOSTON, MASSACHUSSETS. I will be living there when I am done with college.
In Brave New World; Why does John get sick in the helicopter factory?
I am thinking that it has to do with how he was disgusted by seeing the thousands of clones and how no one was an individual. Everyone did what they were told to do and soma takes over these people's lives.
I don't know if that's right though or not. :-/
When a job ad thing says to send a resume through e-mail, do they mean as an Word attachment, or copied and pasted into the body of the e-mail? I'm sure the answer is obvious but I just wanna make sure!

Ricky/Jake/Mickey (no not all three of them together) from Doctor Who
and Frank/Ricky from Showbands I and Showbands II. Not like anyone knows what Showbands is. :( (They're a set of Irish movies, about a girl/woman who wants to be a singer, and her manager, who runs a showband that she sings for, and her 'rival' Ricky who she dates to cover up rumours that he's gay, and it turns out he is, with Frank, his manager.)

1) Why would a girl who has a loving, committed relationship with a great guy, suddenly and without provocation want to be independently(ie, not living with anyone) single? (I'm not saying that she's weird for wanting to be single, I'm just wondering why it might have come on so suddenly. I don't know her well enough to ask)
2) Do you enjoy the smell of lestoil?
3) What is your favorite soup?
4) Should I wait until kitten season next spring (also when I get a bigger apartment) to adopt a second cat, or should I visit a shelter now and pick out an older kitty? I would love an older cat, but I'm still afraid my apartment is too small, and I'm wondering if Milo, my current cat, would get along better with a kitten (he's the runt and I'm afraid an older cat would boss him around). Give me advice, oh wise TQC :P

1. You've been with your SO for almost a year. They just confessed to you that your "first time" together a few months ago was actually their first time, despite their original statement that they'd been with two other people just as you had. They were afraid you would think less of them if they had told you they were a virgin to start with. What is your reaction?

I am going to the store tomorrow. Please to be helping me compile a list.
Have you ever lived in a city that has hosted the Olympics while the events were being held?

Every time San Francisco makes a bid for the Olympics, I get really excited and then I think, wait no, it'll suck ass traffic-wise and stuff...
Have you ever fixed something of yourself that you consider to be a character flaw? (Example: a tendency to be late all the time.)
How long did it take and how did you go about it?
Would you prefer that you child watches tv or surfs the Internet for recreation? Why?
Assume equal time spent on each, both forms of entertainment are easily monitored (so no porn or anything you deem as inappropriate), and your child knows what is appropriate and does not stray from the rules you've set forth. This kid probably doesn't exist, but let's just say s/he does for argument's sake.
You must choose one or both if you're apathetic. "Neither" is not an option, and telling the kid to get a book/go outside/whatever is also not an option.

The dress code is 'business casual' so we're allowed to wear jeans and sneakers, which I feel most comfortable in and what I usually wear. Should I dress nicely to begin with and gradually introduce my normal clothes or should I be 'honest' and wear my normal clothes from the start?

I don't remember who's in it, and that's all I remember of the movie. What is it?!
Are you generally the person asking semi-strangers and friends for pain relievers while you're out in public, or the person who always has it in your purse/pocket/bag/whatever and gives it out?
Have you noticed that the person asking for the pill usually uses a kind of shy "I'm in so much pain and would be so grateful if you could help" voice intonation?
