What's the strangest syndrome you've ever heard of?
when someone asks you who you would bring onto a deserted island, do you assume there are still animals on it?
edit fine, fine, i was wrong. i'm not admitting it to him, though.
1. When/where was your first job?
2. How old were you at the time?
3. Did you enjoy it at the time? Why/why not?
4. Looking back now, what thoughts go through your mind at the thought of that job?
2. What schools are they from?
3. Why did you get them? Did you actually go to the school, have a family member or SO there? Or did you plan on going there and then decided not to?
2. Mount Wachusett Community, CSUN, Newbury, and SFSU
3. I went/am going to the first two, wanted to go to Newbury when I first graduated high school, and wanted to transfer to SFSU after getting my Associate's
Do you judge people by the cleanliness of their home when you visit?

And speaking of turkeys... What is your opinion of turkey-dogs?
If so, what do they look like? (Major bonus points for anyone who posts a pic of their slippers!)
If you aren't wearing slippers, what kind of footwear are you sporting?

1) Seriously, is any of this stuff actually true for you (if you're male)? Any of those '10 secrets about women' ring true for the girls?
2) I need to get a different e-mail because the Yahoo! news feed is actually destroying my soul. What's good nowadays? (I already have Hotmail, so I know that it sucks.)

I always think of lime green and hot pink, lawn sprinklers, thunderstorms, hot sidewalks, popsicles, and thrift stores.
ETA: I literally will not get my work done if I sleep in. Or, if I do, I'll be pulling an all-nighter (sort of expecting one anyway), which will mean less sleep later on, and I've already slept 5 hours.
So I ended up going in, i.e. biking all the way to school at 5am in the freezing cold, only to get there and have my all-access card not work. I hadn't used it yet and APPARENTLY it failed to get activated this term. I spent an hour on the phone with DPS trying to figure it out only to have to bike BACK home in the freezing cold, thus losing over an hour of sleep/work. My question, tqc, is how much does that stuck? How screwed am I now? Now I'm awake and itching to work and feeling sick/terrible :C
Any suggestions of ones you have used / liked / disliked?
If yes are you pleased with it?
Personally I keep hearing people call the most random things "paradoxes." It's weird because I thought a paradox was a simple concept (ironic?).
What the hell is this on my screen? When I press contrl-A (to select all), I get this bizarre blue square thing that highlights as well. But there isn't anything there.
In a different screen, I noticed that thing after the snapshot popup for a link went away and I selected all, but this was a new screen and there was no snapshot popup. What gives??

hi. for the past few days, i've been getting sharp chest pains. they usually last about 20 minutes and then before i know it, they're gone.
TQC, am i dying? it really feels like i'm dying each time this happens.
srs and non-srs answers are welcome, of course.

So you're working hard, and there's a decent number of customers so you're making pretty good tips, when a homeless guy comes along and starts begging your customers for money right next to the window (on the public sidewalk). Now, instead of giving you tips, everyone is giving their change to the homeless guy. Also, there are fewer customers because some people are avoiding the homeless guy.
1. How does this make you feel? (Sympathetic because he's got it worse off than you? Pissed because he's taking your tips/driving away customers? Indifferent?)
2. What do you do about it? (Ignore him? Call the cops? Kick his ass? Throw cheese at him?)
EDIT: 3. To make it even more interesting, what if you are the only manager on duty? And when you call the cops, all they do is tell him to go away, and he comes back as soon as they leave?

When I turned 21, we went out for my birthday and I had a margarita - but it wasn't very alcoholic. I tried my friend's mojito and I didn't like it.
I've never had a great interest in alcohol, just kinda wondered what the fuss was about. I still kinda wonder what's so great about it since I really didn't like the stuff I've tried. Some of my friends tell me it's better this way since I'm not spending lots of money on alcohol.
So, do you think I'm better off not drinking or am I missing out?
Should I make an effort to find one thing I like so that I can actually get something when I do eventually have the money to spend on going out? Or should I just order water or soda at bars?

It's this great website where you can list the books you own/have read and based off of that lists recommendations for future reading based on others in the community. For example, "other people who own/read those books have also read..."
I just started adding my collection the other day so I have quite a few books to add. Lately I've been on a Stephen King / Dean Koontz kick.
If you have one, please post it, I'd love to see the reading habits of those in this community, OR go ahead and make one today?

2- Do explain your LJ 'name' for me? (See your info, and what it says beside "Name:")
3- Why do you have the default icon you have?
Oh, and mine:
1- Rykani is a character I used to roleplay, and now she's a villain in a big ass story I've been working on forever. Hahahaha. :)
2- "I am totally confused"... it's a line from a Blumchen song. Yay German.
3- Because everyone likes dancing girl!
Should I read the Dark Tower series by him?
The ones that I can remember at the moment that I really enjoyed by him were 'Hearts in Atlantis', 'The Shining', 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon', pretty much all of his short stories, and um one other one about a summerhouse with the main character being a guy who is a recent widow. So based off of this any recommendations?
I've got a stupid question! :D
I'm on my university's wifi, and I'm curious as to whether or not they can see every website I go to, since I know nothing about computers at ALL. Can they see the websites I'm going to? I ask because I'm in wtf_inc, and occasionally, I'd like to click on the ones that are obviously NSFW, and I'm afraid that my college security or admissions or whatever will think I'm a pervert and evict me from the school, and I'll spend the rest of my life living in my parents' basement watching internet porn and House. Actually...that doesn't sound too bad.
for me it's "wonderwall" by oasis. I don't hate the song, but I don't think it's amazing like so many other people do.
Anyone have any ideas for immediate relief other than benadryl(maybe home remedies)? Serious and non-serious answers welcome, of course.

2) Relatedly, Is it possible to network between a Mac and PC? I have no experience with Mac networking, so if so, how would you go about it (specifically, using a Mac to access a PC network)?
3) For those of you with desk jobs and not much time in the evenings or weekends to really work out or be active, how do you go about staying fit and/or losing weight?
4) From where did the term "asshole" originate? It doesn't seem like an intuitive insult, so I'm wondering where the hell it came from at its very beginning.
1.) What is the worst compliment you have ever received/overheard?
2.) What is every clothing item you are wearing right now, and where did each originate from?
1.) "Mmmm, squishy.

I discovered that one of the jobs I'm considering applying for is at a CPA firm, and my father is friends with one of the partners. I feel it would be inappropriate to have him call and recommend me to his friend after I make my first impression. He says it's common and acceptable in business. Those of you in business positions where you make hiring decisions, what do you think?
Do most places looking for receptionists take kindly to waiting for two weeks before they can start? I genuinely hate my job, but I don't want to leave them completely screwed, because I like the people.

so, onto my question. generally about the skin on my hands, arms, and legs, as well as my back and stomach. if i scratch it lightly (e.g. scratching an itch) or brush it against something, it automatically raises up in the exact same spot it was touched and turns a certain shade of red depending on how hard it was brushed against. like, a normal bump against the edge of my locker will even do it. the annoying part of it is if someone sees the raised skin - it looks /exactly/ like a scar and doesn't go away for a couple minutes. so i basically have people looking at my arm going "WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN :O OMG YOU HAVE A BILLION SCARS ALL OVER YOUR ARM."
why is my skin this easily irritated? why does it react the way it does??? can i do anything to offset it, because it's just kind of bothersome.

i got out of a 3 year relationship last fall and moved back home to MI. my entire group of friends, close and not-so-close, were in long-term relationships/married. so i tried match.com just to meet some new people. i dated two guy for two months each. i don't mind the sites, other than cost, but would prefer to meet guys the traditional way or whatever. overall though, it was a pretty good way to meet some new people. currently i feel like im in a rut and im doing everything i can to meet new guys but its just not happening, so i have considered trying match.com again.

Ages of characters -
Noela: old 16
Nell: young 16
(when I say young and old I mean month wise and maturity wise)
We'll call Nora was dating a girl who we'll call Nadia. They really got on well, loved each other, Nora calls Nadia the first person she ever really loved and could see spending her life with. Et cetera. Now this summer who I'll call Noela, had a thing for Nora, and also introduced Nora to a girl who we'll call Nell. Nora and Noela ended up hooking up, but it was a one-time thing (to clarify, Nora found out that Noela had a thing for her, said a ton of times that if she hadn't had a girlfriend "things would've been different" etc and then one night...things were different.) After the summer, Nora, Nell, and Noela all kept in really close touch, and Nell ended up drunkenly talking to Nadia on the phone, and from then on, Nell and Nadia were CONSTANTLY texting each other, even though they'd never met. Nora, Noela, and Nell really wanted to hang out and decided to go on a camping trip, Nora invited Nadia and Nell and Nadia got on really well. Nadia and Nell continued constantly texting each other even though Nell wasn't really keeping in touch with Nora or Noela anymore. Weeks pass, Noela gets in a fight with Nora and Nell (separately for the most part) but then, the really really weird fucked up thing happens.
Nadia and Nell start to date. 21 (almost 22) and young 16. Nora is basically thrown in the dirt, but still tries to keep in constant with Nadia even though Noela and other character who isn't important enough to name keep telling her it's a terrible idea and she'll only be more hurt. (Noela knows from experience that cutting off contact is good because she just tried to do it to Nora.)
So, keeping in mind that
A) Nora cheated on Nadia with Noela but Nadia didn't know how far it went, in fact, she really has no idea.
B) Nadia pretty much left Nora, who loves her, for a person almost six years her junior with very little regard to Nora's feelings.
C) Noela kinda started the whole thing by liking Nora, introducting Nell, etc,
D) Nell betrayed her friend by dating her ex, who she full well knows how much she loves, and also said she'd NEVER do this. And in general is making bad decisions.

I used to use oink (RIP). I'm looking for a new place like that. I ran into a place called indietorrents. If anyone has an invite to that, or basically any other private torrent site, I'd totally love an invite (if you feel generous, respond in a comment I'll give you my email). My Oink ratio was always around the 5.0-6.0 range because I just constantly seeded.
