Bidet Shower

While I spent a week visiting friends, I noticed that one of them would never wipe herself after having a bowel movement. She'd cleanse her bottom by using the shower head hose like a Water Pick/bidet and wash feces from her ass. This grossed me out since I was staying with her and when I called her on it, she claimed that washing instead of wiping soothes her asshole and prevents hemorrhoids.

I think that's a load of bull. But is it true that bidet cleansing prevents or decreases hemorrhoid occurrences?

Joys of APEC...

Why was it necessary after what was widely reported as a peaceful protest, in a place where the police had agreed that the protest could take, for the police to then go through the crowd arresting the organizers?

m4v to mp3 - best program?

I downloaded several videos from iTunes to use on my MP3 player, which is a Creative Zen, which also plays videos. But alas they are in m4v format, which I did not realize, and which does not seem to play on my Zen.

Can anybody recommend a good program to convert m4v -> mp3 or whatever would allow it to be viewed on a Windows-based viewing platform (wva?), or, alternatively, does anybody know if it's possible to install something onto a Creative MP3 player that will play m4v files?

Thanks ~

1. Has anybody seen Shoot 'Em Up? Is it enjoyable/should I see it tomorrow?
2. What is the least amount of time you've spent reading an entire book? Not a picture book or a baby book or anything like that.
3. What are your thoughts on college students dating high school students (more specifically, a high school senior and a junior in college)?
4. Do you like eating cookies with milk? I have a bunch of cookies and I don't know if I should or not, because sometimes the milk takes away from the magical taste of the snickerdoodle.
5. Do you think that Madeleine McCann's parents actually responsible for her dissappearance? I think they are obviously extremely careless, but I don't think they actually killed her.

Personally, I consider it risque, but not pornographic, because I've never seen anything explicit in any issue, just nudity.

What sound bothers you more than anything else? Why does it upset you so?



The sound of the Emergency Broadcast System makes me cry. It scares the everloving shit out of me. I've never had it go off for real for anything other than weather...but it scares me just the same. I'm talking, throw my hands over my ears and hum loudly until it's over kinda scared.

I think part of it is imagining it going off for real, like as an airstrike warning or something, not knowing how much time you have to prepare/evacuate, all other forms of communication down except for that crackling, obsolete sound, followed by a muffled voice that may or may not be able to inform you on what is going on and what to do about it. *shudders*

1. I'm a junior in college and most of my friends are people I met during my freshman year during orientation, and so we were more or less forced to socialize. And...I suppose that we were all a bit desperate for friends, being freshman and all. I'd like to branch out a bit. My question is: how do you go from acquaintance to friend when it comes to random people in your classes?

2. For those of you who have graduated, do you keep in touch with people you met in college?

3. Girls, how do you ask a guy out?

Hey this is my first post here.

I'm attempting to learn another language and I need to answer two questions first...

1.Which language?
2.How to go about it?

My list of languages I want to learn is:
French
German
Spanish
Russian
Japanese

I probably want to start with either French or German but maybe Spanish.
So which one seems best to start with?

Also I'd like any suggestions about how to go about learning one of these languages.

2. Would you be in a relationship with someone you're not physically attracted to?

3. Some people have said that they feel like people are joking when someone asks them out or compliments them because of the way they were treated in middle school or high school. No one ever treated me badly or asked me out as a joke but I still always feel like people are playing a big joke when they compliment me (on my appearence or something else) or ask me out. Does anyone else ever feel this way? How do I STOP thinking that?

1. What are some good things to eat and drink to make one's throat less phlegmy?

Due to a series of uninteresting events, I only got back to school this Friday, and it turns out that the auditions for our production of Chicago are on Monday. Doesn't leave me with much time to prepare, and I naturally have sinus problems. I've heard a lot of things from other people, some sensible (no milk or dairy products) and some bizarre (blue gatorade is good, but orange is bad...?), so I figured that a bunch of strangers on the Internet might know more than my fellow students do.

2. Every year, my Unitarian Universalist church reconvenes after a summer break and starts off the year with a Water Ceremony, in which church members bring water from (or tap water pretending to be from) somewhere they've visited or somewhere that's special to them. The water is poured into a vase and mixes with water from past years.

Say that you were required, for whatever reason, to participate. Where would your water be from (or "symbolically" from)?

Your are single and enjoy your singlehood. You meet 2 people of your choice. Attractiveness is not an issue as they are equal. You tell both of them that you are not looking for a relationship. You just want to take one day at a time. It's been a loooong time since you last got the nooki.

A has insecurity issues that comes out with jealousy and plays the head games. Knowing you don't want a relationship, they are still willing to have the sex. They even agree to a FWB setup.

B has a confident personality and you have some common interests. They don't play the head games but they want a relationship and won't have the sex until both of you are in the same place relationship wise. They are willing to be just friends until you're ready to move to the next level.

help an unexperienced rube, please? sorry if it's tl;dr

my friend and i are going on an excellent vacation here in about ten days. we're travelling for a total of twelve days. i'm compiling lists of things i need to bring with me, etc, that's all handled.

now i'm thinking about clothes. we're going to be spending six days of this vacation in new york city. two of those evening's activities have us attending broadway plays - namely Wicked and Avenue Q.


i want to dress comfortably for the whole trip - but i also want to dress appropriately.

how dressy do we need to be to attend these shows comfortably but appropriately?
is it allright if i wear a simple skirt and nice shirt, or can i get away with slacks and a nice shirt? or is that overdressed? underdressed?

can someone who's been tell me what the norm is? this is my first trip to NYC.

Would you (or do you) let your child wear whatever they wanted in public, regardless of how ridiculous or extravagant or "not normal" it may be?

I was at a picnic today and this woman was complaining that her (probably 6 year old) daughter wore her pirate outfit, and that she wore it yesterday and she just will not let go of it, and she keeps trying to make her not wear it but just gave up. Why is it such a big deal? The girl was really cute in her pirate look. :P

So during Thursday night out with the girls, after a few beers ... Dumb ass that I am, I managed to turn my head while making a gesture with my hand and smacked myself in the face. In the process, I left a gash in my chin from my thumbnail. It's since crusted over into a half inch wound that you cannot help but notice. Friday morning, I dropped something that rolled under the bed, and in my hungover state, I didn't notice the fairly large curious German Shepherd puppy perched on the edge of the bed. She jumped down to see what I was fishing out from under said bed, with her back feet coming down on my forehead, leaving a lovely lump that has since settled into a bruise that's the most gorgeous shades of blue, purple and green. Since there's no chance that any of this will be gone by tomorrow, TQC ... I need some kind of excuse to explain my injuries. Because the truth just sounds way to stupid. What excuse should I use? The wilder the better.

I just bought a bunch of movie posters. The problem is, they won't stay on my wall. I got those foam squares you can put on the back of posters, but they aren't holding.

I don't want to use tape on them, and I don't want to use push pins either. A few years ago, I used to use this kind of sticky putty stuff on posters, and while they held up on the wall pretty well, sometimes they'd stain the paper and I don't want that. And I'm a little strapped for cash right now, so I can't get them all framed the way I really want to. What else could I do to keep them posted?

What's your opinion on complete period suppression using birth control pills?

I personally think it's kickass. I've been skipping inactive pills for a while now so I only get 4 periods a year, and my doctor just prescribed one with no inactive pills so I get no period at all. I have horrible PMS and I am anemic, so not having a period is a very welcome thing and I don't miss it.

1. I just purchased the book Fight Club because I've never seen the movie or read the book. Was this a good idea? Which did you like better, the movie or the book? Was it an easy read?

2. Who is your favorite author?

3. Which book could you read over and over again?

So was Britney's performance a hoax?

Is she going to come out and do something for real?

EDIT: I have a theory.

The VMAs are the "new" 9/11 attacks, and Al Quaeda is ruining America by infiltrating our popular culture. Y/N? Discuss. THINK ABOUT IT. RIHANNA SINGS "UMBRELLA" AND WON AN AWARD. AL QUAEDA MEANS "THE UMBRELLA".

Total coincidence or subversive plot?

EDIT #2: Also, they are in a TOWER. AND WHERE IS CARSON DALY? HOW DO WE KNOW HE HAS NOT BEEN IN SOME TRAINING CAMP?

The question a few below reminded me:

I want to stretch my ears, but I'm afraid I won't be able to wear 18 gauges anymore. And I have a lot of really pretty 18s.

Do you think it'd look weird if I stretched my second piercings, and left my first ones at 18? Do you think fancy earrings in my first holes would look weird if I had stretched second holes?

Hmmmm.

[ETA] I have replaced the word "gauge" with stretch. That does not change the question. Nor does the fact that I used the word "gauge" mean my earlobes will explode if I stretch them. Gauge was simply the word I'd always heard used.

I haven't talked to my mom today. We live on opposite sides of the US, we have a pretty close relationship, and I usually talk to her at least once a day. I haven't skipped a day of talking to her since moving, and now I feel off, like I haven't completed my day.

Has anything made you feel off today?
If so, what was it?

I'm trying to budget my money and figure out how much I should spend on food. I'm single, so I'm only shopping for myself...

On average, how much do you spend on food when you eat out (on yourself only, not including other family members)?

How about when you cook at home (again, for yourself, not including other people)?

You are all a bunch of opinionated fuckwads that like to school together and attack people. Well you know what? Grow up! It's the goddamn internet not a social club or high school. All of you can kiss my lily white ass. 

Do any of you have lives? I mean seriously like at all? Or do you sit around dreaming up questions?

I'm done. I've played nicely and I'm not going to be attacked anymore.

since crying/sad things seems to be a bit of a topic today, what's the last really ridiculous thing that made you cry?


i cried today when i watched You, Me and Dupree 'cause most of my friends are crap and Dupree's friends kept taking him in. lolll. i'm glad i was home alone today 'cause i totally lost it when "Train in Vain" by The Clash played.

Refrigerator

I usually keep a decent variety of beverages in my refrigerator. Currently I have tea, kool-aid, apple juice, Hawaiian punch, gatorade, and some soda.

For a couple of weeks I was having a problem regulating the refrigerator temperature. It kept freezing my drinks. I turned it almost all the way down (or up, not sure which it would be..I really don't care at this point) but I'm still having problems.

so...TQC...

Why did my tea freeze and no other drinks did?
How can I keep my tea from freezing other than turning the temp gauge to the warmest setting?

The rest of the stuff in the fridge is just fine on the current setting.

Should I just give up and quit making tea?


Sorry if it makes no sense....I'm exhausted and can't sleep.

ETA: I've tried just about every spot in the fridge where the tea pitcher will fit and it still freezes.


ETA again: Since when are cock and noose dirty words? I was watching the Linkin Park VMA performance and they performed "Bleed it Out".

When Mike said "Filthy mouth, no excuse, Find a new place to hang this noose", they bleeped noose.

When he said "Shotgun opera lock and load, Cock it back and then watch it go", they bleeped cock.

1.) What's the first videogame you played?
2.) What's the first videogame you owned?
3.) What's the first videogame you ever wanted to beat solely so you could read the credits to find out who made it, so you could look them up in the phone book or on the Internet or whatever to find out their home addresses, so you could convince your parents to drive you over to their house, so you could punch them for making such a crappy game?
4.) Are there any videogames based on movies (or vice versa) that don't suck?
5.) If you were a burrito, would you have black or pinto beans?
