Aliens drop from the sky and without having any idea as to what their history or intentions are beyond exploration and a desire born of curiosity to make contact with another sentient race, and any knowledge of their life or culture beyond same basic necessities as humanoid species (food, breathable atmosphere, hydration, shelter, etc.) the world governments opt to make an offer of some kind of resource, technology or other items as a gesture of good will.
What would you pick?
I say beef cattle. They're easy to feed and raise, and branch theory of evolution guarantees that they are unique to our planet but are pretty adaptable and have a plastic genome, and probably would fit the protein needs of another similar humanoid species. But then again I'm largely of the opinion that you can make peace with food, and really is there nothing more Earthling than a big ole hamburger and fries? Welcome to Earth, home of the Whopper, I say.
You're in a hostel, in a private room. (it's one double bed, only one lock on the door. You're on the fourth floor and in a way hidden corner room. The only way into the hostel after 10pm is a fob key. The doors are actual lock and key, not swipe cards. The elevators also use the fob keys.)
It's 4.45am. You're in bed with your boyfriend, when someone uses what sounds like a key to get into your room. The door opens wide and there's a young male (whiteish, blonde curly hair) . He looks suprised to see people there, and quickly closes the door and runs away.
What would you do? What would you expect your S/O to do?
Would you expect some sort of compensasion from the hotel? (Ignore the spelling here, I'm fucking tired)
Would you be able to sleep the next night?
This happened to me last night. New Zealand's been great, but damn. the boyfriend did nothing, and I went down to talk to security (two large Maori guys). They searched the area, and asked if there was someone else in the room with me. I went back to bed because I was exhausted (I had been swimming all day). The next morning I asked the front desk what the fuck that was, and was brushed off until they realized I was in a private room, not a dorm. I was then told that this guys had checked in late (around 4am) without photo ID. Only a weird police report that his passport had been stolen. He took his fob key, and went from reception (floor 3) to the next floor (level 4). This is where he started picking locks. I guess secruity caught him and he was kicked out. No police were called, and I was given an answer until I demanded one. There was nothing really "done" for me. I cannot fucking sleep right now for the life of me :(

- "To anyone that has a Chase credit card be sure to keep an eye out in the mail. I received a Change in Terms Notice today that says they are going to more than double my interest rate from 7.99% to 16.74%.
They give you an OPT OUT option, but doing so will close your credit account with them. You will be responsible for paying off your balance at your current rate. There is one catch, even if you OPT OUT over the phone they still need to receive a letter from you by December 19, 2007 otherwise even your closed account will be charged the new rate of 16.74%.
If you are already paying a higher interest rate with them it will not go down. This change only effects those with an interest rate lower than 16.74%.
It amazes me how these credit card companies are screwing people. There are many people that are not going to even look at these notices and by the December 19, 2007 deadline will be paying a ridiculous APR with no hope of making it lower.
I hope by me notifying people will help some of you out."
I was under the impression that 7% was incredibly low for an APR. What are the rates for some of your credit cards? Anyone helped by this info?

2. You are walking on the beach when suddenly you find a genie lamp. You rub it, and out pops the genie. He proclaims that he is so thankful to you for letting him out after thousands of years that he gives you three wishes. What do you think he did with his time while he was in there?

He said to me, "You're going to call me, right?" And I replied, "Uh...yeah." He could tell that I was hesitating and said, "I'm not pressuring you or anything. I think it'll be cool if I could take you to a party or we could hang out." And I nodded. Re
The thing is, would it be flaky for me to not call? I never initiate, and although I do like this guy, I don't feel comfortable calling because I'm very sure that it will be awkward. I hate using the phone. Is it okay to not call? He did email me, then I emailed him back, and he emailed back, and I was the last to email. He hasn't emailed me back in like 2 weeks. I'm worried about keeping my word and how it'll be flaky. I don't mind if I don't see him again.
Oh, and I'll see him again at the next conference in Februrary.

I've had a soy mate latte, a Mojitea, and a sample of a mint chocolate tea and a white and mint chocolate tea.
I would like to try the blueberry Tea Sparkle, the Hibiscus Steamer/Chiller, and the Tea Sangria.
Tea concoctions intrigue me.
I'm at work, so I can't leave to go get any.
There's a box of Nestle Hot Chocolate mix on the microwave....

His mother basically disowned him a year or so ago, but constantly sends him these creepy letters about how she still loves him always and forever and acts like he was the one that pushed her out of his life. He got another one of those letters today and it resulted in him blowing up over the paint.
He has since apologized but it's getting to the point where I've had it. He needs to talk to someone professionally because his anger over the situation is really starting to wear on our relationship. Being how he's incredibly worried about feeling like there's something "wrong" with him and no matter how I try to explain it, it seems to come out like I want him to go because of how it's affecting me or something, he just won't go.
So um, what's the best way to encourage an unwilling party to seek professional help?

Two of my local friends, H and C, are also on my LJ flist. They used to like each other as well, but recently had an immense falling out.
I posted pictures last night with the heading, "Two of these pictures were taken by C." She was not in the pictures, nor was she mentioned elsewhere. H commented saying, "Please filter me out of any posts involving her."
I haven't responded yet. I don't use filters. That's stupid. Either I trust folks with my thoughts or I don't. I never thought anyone might want a filter because they want to read some things I post but not all.
Wtf is she thinking? Is this reasonable? How can I respond while maintaining my status as Not The Bitch In The Room? The logical next step as far as I can see is just taking her off the list altogether, but I know that if I do that she'll cut all ties with me irl too. Whatever.

My dog has terrible dandruff, it looks like she's been lightly frosted (black fur, white flakes...) and if you part her fur to look at her skin it looks like an entire layer of skin has lifted off and is suspended a few mm up in her fur. Any idea why she might have such bad dandruff? I've never seen another dog with anything like it.
If so, add me.

eta: do you talk on the phone in your sleep?
yes, and I think I am having dreams about talking on the phone.
ETA: I'm referring to having and keeping the babies, instead of putting them up for adoption. Of course, it's not like we need yet another baby in the world anyway, so abortion is preferred.
It means bringing a baby to what is probably just a single, poorly prepared parent. They are far too immature. Even if mother's parents help, it's still going to be a half assed attempt by non-parents to raise the kid.
This is precisely the kind of case that abortions are suited for.
full scenario: they don't really have any bills other than gas for their car, and even then they charge it. they live with their parents, so they really don't pay for anything other than miscellaneous wants...but their wants have them deep in the hole now, but they keep spending still.

2. Do you suspect that any of your couple friends engage in lifestyles outside of the norm?
You're quitting your job because other people above you are literally bipolar. One day you're doing a fantastic job, the next you're being chastised in front of the whole group because you're apparently an idiot. Mistakes that others have made have been blamed on you.
Overall, the job is just making you progressively more miserable.
Except, even though you logically know it's best to quit, you feel depressed. You've only been at this job for 6 months, and quitting after that short period feels like a failure.
How would you deal with these emotions? How would you get out of this rut and prove that you're worth more than this, and that you deserve a better job?

You are adrift in a life raft after your cruise ship has sunk. There are too many survivors for the life rafts, and yours is overloaded. The raft is certain to sink, and even with life vests, the passengers are sure to die in the frigid water. One person on the boat is awake and alert but gravely ill and will not survive the journey no matter what. Throwing that person overboard would prevent the raft from sinking. Could you be the one who tosses the person out?
A runaway trolley is heading down the tracks toward five workmen who can't be warned in time. You are standing near a switch that would divert the trolley onto a siding, but there is a single unsuspecting workman there. Would you throw the switch, killing one to save five?
Suppose the workman was on a bridge with you and you could save the men only by pushing him onto the tracks? (He's large enough to stop the train; you're not.)
Suppose you could throw a switch dropping him through a trapdoor-- thus not physically pushing him?
It's wartime and you're hiding in a basement with your baby and a group or other people. Enemy soldiers are outside and will be drawn to any sound. If you're found, you will all be killed immediately. Your baby starts to cry loudly. Smothering him to death is the only way to silence him and save the lives of everyone in the room. Could you do so?
Suppose the baby is not yours, the parents are unknown and there will be no penalty for killing him.

My old principal asked me if I'd like to do a gallery exhibit (the high school has an art gallery where local artists can have their own shows). I work in a few different mediums and would like a couple of pieces from each, but a lot of what i do now is digital. How would I display my digital work?
