Well everyone else is doing a picture post, SO I'LL DO ONE TOO. *sheep*

Will you go to your Photobucket/Flickr/whatever account and post a random picture for us that makes no sense out of context, and let other commenters reply with a completely-made-up story for it? Just never, you know... explain the real story behind the picture, that'd be no fun.

I'm organizing a book project. I've created a community where people who are accepted into it will post journal entries about their everyday lives in a thoughtful kind of way. Kind of in the way of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, I suppose. The book will be in the form of four or five different peoples' journals.

Here is my problem, taken from my personal LJ:

For my book idea, around thirty girls applied to be a part of it, and two guys did. One of the guys had really poor spelling and grammar, so that is out. The only other guy is sixty years old. All of the girls who applied are between the ages of 16 and 21.

So, if the man became a part of the book, he would be a sixty year-old male among three to five girls in their teens or early twenties.

If the man still had something to contribute, do you think I should make him a part of the book? Or do you think it would be odd?

My girlfriend said it's discrimination that I don't think he should be a part because of his age and the fact that he's a guy. I just think he would be such a random part of the book and make it very unbalanced.

I don't know, I'm just kind of upset because I don't want to discriminate. But I also think it would be bad for the book if he was in it. I wanted to have a diverse group of people; all ages and both sexes, but it just didn't work out that way.

Your opinions, please?

1) Will you please show me a picture of your face where your skin is natural? (ie, no coverup or foundation or anything)

2) Can you show me a pic of you in natural light?

3) How about in flash-lighting?

2. 'Lo', Hebrew for no (I'm Israeli), I used to say it all the time according to my grandad, because I was very fussy.

It's past midnight. I'm working on a paper due in the morning. (I know. It is not a good idea to post in TQC while working on papers.) I'm wondering if I should put today's date on the paper or if I should put yesterday's date or the date from a few days ago, when I should have had it done. I have a bad feeling my teacher will be able to tell I started the paper after midnight and maybe laugh at me if she sees I've dated it a few days back. But it's possible she won't notice, as she gave me a high A on the last paper I turned in, which was written only a few hours before it was due as well.

When you put off a paper 'til the last minute do you date it a few days earlier to give a good impression?

Or did you just put the day it was due, no matter when you finished it?

If you are a teacher, do you take any note of the dates students put on the heads of their papers?

Do you think I could get away without putting a date at all?

Am I coherent? Am I making sense? How is my grammar? Would it be better to get some sleep before continuing my paper? I usually feel like I get stupider after midnight; do you think this is true?

Okay, yesterday I woke up with a really bad headache. Then I threw up. Throughout the whole day, I probably puked 10-12 times. I couldn't even drink water without throwing it up. I had no fever and my stomach didn't feel particuarly upset. I'm starting to feel a little better today, as I just ate some soup and its been over an hour and I haven't puked it back up.

Has anyone had symptoms like this before? It confuses me so. Also, don't direct me to ask_a_nurse because I got banned from there for diagnosing poison ivy without a medical degree or something.

Okay. Last night i noticed that my female betta's top fin, which had looked gross before, was now pretty much gone. I decided to get fishmeds in the the morning.
Just now I went over to check on her, and i said, "um, there doesn't appear to be a fish in this tank." And i found her in the drawer right beneath it. and I picked her up to throw her out, and she started flipping around!
So she's back in the tank.

HOWEVER she pretty much *looks* like a dead fish. She is now swimming, a bit, but she looks like... like a walmart betta at your average walmart with gross fish (my local walmart is actually really good with their fish, better than the local independent fish store).

I... I was planning on getting melafix for her fin, but any recommendations for fish meds of "bringing you back from the brink of death"?

I live in NYC and I have some quick question for anyone who knows about renter-landlord laws in my neck of the woods:

*Can my landlord keep making appointments to inspect my apt.? This will be the second inspection in the past two months
(Back story: We've been tenants for a year and a half now and the first lease we signed allowed us to have pets, but the second one did not. There was a dispute about whether there was a verbal agreement or not but to make the story short they let us stay on the condition that they were allowed to inspect our apartment ONCE to make sure that we were not contributing to a smell that was leaking into the building, due to our pets. We passed the inspection but now they want to do it again)

*Also, can anyone recommend a reputable website where I can read up on the laws concerning renting in NYC? I've been looking but most of the ones I've hit seem a little sketchy...

Thanks ahead of time!

Would you drink all 4 bottles for $300 now?

Meat-eaters

For those of us who eat meat

1) Have you ever eaten meat (excluding seafood) from something other than cow/pig/chicken? (that's possibly North-American-centric, I don't know too much about common meats around the world) Like snake, or horse, or something? Did you like it? Can you describe the flavour?

2) Is there any meat you would never try? (Barring some extreme situation like starvation.)

My answers:

1) I had wild boar once. I didn't like it at all, it tasted... earthy, or something, and extremely strong. My SO was there too, he says he thinks it was just not cooked properly (he's the cook out of both of us), so I might try it again given the opportunity.

2) I don't think I'll ever sample dog or cat. Just couldn't.

ETA: I posted this before lunch break, and now I'm back and this thread is making me extremely hungry, again.

Also, never expected so many people to say they've eaten alligator!

Asked a bajillion times already?

How often do you miss work? Do you usually come in late, leave early, call in sick, or take planned days off?

How often/have you ever called in sick when you weren't really sick, or given an untruthful excuse for missing work?

I'm missing a lot of work lately. It's all planned days off and/or for legitimate reasons like doctor's appointments for my kid, but I'm feeling guilty.

How do you be less competitive? This is honestly a sincere question.

I got the highest grade on a test and since then, a lot of people have been asking me for help on that subject. At first, I was really eager to help them, but they have been asking me everytime they see me so it's getting kind of annoying. And by helping them, they have since gotten really great grades. I know this is really horrible of me, but I can't help feeling a bit jealous/resentment when they get as high of a grade as me while everyone else gets pretty bad scores. I know I sound super arrogant, but I would really like to fix this competitive nature of mine.

I've been avoiding them today (so they don't ask me for help) because of this feeling.

What gets me the most is that they started to copy my studying skills, and it's getting them as high of a score as me. Not only that, but they've copied the style I do homework and everything. I really don't want to feel this bitchy. I couldn't sleep last night because I'm so distraught over this; I really hate myself for feeling this way. Please help. And please no snarky comments; I'm trying to change this part of me. Serious answers would be appreciated, too.

b) Go downtown to a hole-in-the-wall bar

I have a good friend who's in massage school. She just texted me asking if I want a massage because she has some techniques that she needs to practice.

Should I tip her? I would think that would be weird. The next time we go out, should I just buy her a drink and say, 'Thanks for the massage'? Or should it be dinner instead of a drink? Or nothing at all since I'm doing her a favor by letting her practice on me (I don't really think that at all, but just threw it out there)?

1. What is the most romantic movie you've ever seen?

2. I have a TruTech TV/DVD combination, and recently my DVD player won't work. It froze while I was watching a movie and I took the DVD out and ever since then any time I put a DVD in, it says, "wrong disc". Any ideas what could be wrong or what I could do to fix it?

Have you gotten excited about something geeky lately?  What?

I just opened a FREE Lorwyn booster for Magic: The gathering and got several goblins I wanted AND Jace Belren.  I dont even play blue, but I'm excited.  Sigh.


Plans for tonight?
Going to a party for someone I've met twice.  Ace.

Your local restaurant has a sign up that says you get free fries (or breadsticks, or a drink, or whatever) if they don't offer you a combo meal. When you order, the cashier doesn't offer you a combo meal. Do you demand your free item? Does it matter what the item is? Does it matter if the restaurant is really busy, or if they person running the cash register seems like a trainee?

ipod engraving

Do you have engraving on the back of your ipod?
If so, what does it say?




I've been saving up to buy my boyfriend one for his birthday, which is why I'm asking. I can't decide if it would make it more special, or more lame haha. Mine has no engraving.

 For the menses-having ladies:

Do you get really bad cramps with your period?  Muscle aches?  Fatigue? Anything else that's disgusting and unwelcome?

Have you ever used cramps as an excuse to get out of something, even though you feel fine?   What was it?

Do you feel comfortable talking about your period-business with your friends?

Halp!

What do you say when someone says, "God bless you"?

I was in the infant department today and some guy came up to me with a list. He goes, "ma'am! ma'am! Can you help me find this stuff... I have no idea what I'm doing".
After I helped him find the stuff on his list, he goes, "awh, thank ya garl (he had that drawl) Then, he's mummbled something and goes, "God bless yah, garl"

I said, "thanks". lol Now I feel dumb because are you supposed to say "THANKS" when someone says, "God bless you"?

1) If someone always seemed to call you while they were taking a shit, what (if anything) would you think of them?

2) Do you go to the bathroom while you're on the phone?

3) You have to personally stab to death your entire family or you have to wipe out half the world's population (you choose which people get wipe out, but you don't have to do it personally). Which option to you choose? Why?

4) You're visiting your hometown and go to the store. Someone you knew years ago who treated you like crap comes up and says Hello. If you had to choose, would you rather pretend to not remember them OR pretend you're not you ("I'm sorry, that's not my name. I think you have me confused with someone! I must look a lot like them, huh?")?

Student Loans

What are the steps involved for getting a student loan? I have an appt. with the Office of FA at my university next week, but I kinda wanted to have a clue before I go.

1) Do I have to fill out the FAFSA to qualify for a student loan?

2) Whats the difference between a dependent student and an independent student? Age? Living situation?


Basically, anything you guys know about student loans would be awesome.

Thank you!

1. There's a train carrying 15 passengers. You realize that the train will fall off a cliff unless you pull a switch that reroutes the train onto another track, however this track leads directly into somebody working on the railroad tracks.

Do you do nothing and let the 15 people die or pull the lever, saving 15 people but killing 1?

2. This time the train carrying 15 passengers is headed for a cliff, but you're standing on a bridge over the train tracks. Also standing with you is a really, really fat man. You are 100% certain that if you pushed the fat man over the bridge and in front of the train, the train would slow to a stop before heading over the cliff. You, however, are too skinny to jump in front of the train yourself and save the lives of the passengers.

Do you let the train go over the edge of the cliff letting 15 people die or do you push the fat guy into the path of the train saving 15 but killing 1?

3. If your answer changed from question 1 to question 2... why did it change?

1.  Did you ever write notebooks with stories with your friends when you were kids? If yes, what was the most intesresting one about?

2. What is the youngest age you remember something of? For example, do you remember things that happened to you when you were 2 years old?     My cousin says she remembers her first birthday, is that possible? Or do you think she is lying?
