I thought about this a long time ago, more so when MySpace was extremely popular...would "creating" a person/character (not myself, possibly using a friend) for somewhat of a social experiment would be:
A)Really stupid/lame
C)Stupid but fun
D)Other ____?

I don't know, it would interest me to observe or figure out what makes certain people appealing/interesting to others. I.E, this guy I know of is a so called "MySpace Celebrity" (like Tila Tequila and Forbidden) but he is the COMPLETE opposite of how he is in real life, and also gave one of his girlfriends a complete makeover and made her one of these e-celebs. They both have 60,000+ friends. They're now doing shows in Vegas together.

1. What should I do on New Years Eve? Boring...but...
a) Go out with my barely legal cousin and her friends at some street event.
b) Party with my college friends in Marriot, celebrating the year we turn 21.
c) Sit at home and start reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini that I just got.

2. Do you normally like crowds or crowded places?

3. Is it possible to get drunk from drinking one Cosmopolitan? (because my friend did a few months ago, it's weird)

Has anyone heard of Mannatech? What are your thoughts on it?
My ex was pushing my mum to try mannatech. I heard all of these wonderful stories about it, and thought it was a good idea, until I found out how much money his mum makes from it, and found that a bit dodgy. So I researched it, and found no scientific proof, no trials, no tests, just testimonials.. Obviously there are people who get better after taking it, but is that because of the mannatech, or is it just a placebo? Or stretching the truth to make more people buy it?
So, mannatech, good or bad?

EDIT: I'm talking about the ambrotose mannatech products.

What combination of foods do you like to eat, but others find weird or gross?

My dad thinks it's weird that I like to eat pickles and cheddar cheese together. He and I both eat corned beef/corned beef hash mixed with creamed corn and lots of pepper. The other day, he ate luncheon meat (aka spam) mixed with pork and beans and potato chips. He likes to mix tortilla chips together with various soups, too.

3. If you saw two people arguing on the street, would you try to break it up?
3b. Would anything change the way you react, such as:
- if one person suddenly hit the other
- if it was two men, two women, or a man and a woman
- if one was obviously trying to get out of it

4. If you listen to music while you're walking on the street, do you do it because you don't want people to stop and talk to you, or do you just want to listen to your music?

What do you think of the douchebag in this picture? Do you think he looks like a douchebag? Do you think he looks like he has a big cock and can keep it up all night? Do you think he'd fuck me if I wore black? Cause I'd totally fuck him and I heard guys like it when girls wear black. I hope he likes it rough because I really like it rough. And all night. With a big cock. While wearing black. I hope he fucks me even though I'm annoying and unimaginitive but I should be okay if I wear black, right?

have you ever felt like you were dying?

have you ever actually come close to death?

..when I was about 4 or 5 years old the dentist gave me over an adult dosage of laughing gas/nitrous oxide. I couldn't stay awake for 3 days and I had to be rushed to the hospital. they said I could have died but really I just remember being incredibly sleepy all of the time. now they wonder why I'm 20 years old and I still have a mini panic attack when I go to the dentist.

How do you differentiate between when you genuinely love someone and when you just care about them, in friendships mostly or other I guess?

My dog's asleep next to me right now.
Does your dog ever dream?
Do you wake him up when he does?
(I'll let Milo dream if he's just running or barking, but when he whines I feel really bad and wake him up.)

Also: Have you ever noticed how dirty some of The Beach Boys' songs are?

I also remember hearing one that said something like, "I like my women like I like my girls--thirteen, fourteen" but I can't remember the name. Sweet.

Maybe my mind has just been warped by public school? But I grew up with those songs and never caught the message.

Because Google has been spectacularly unhelpful, as has the Rogers website, so I'm asking the Internets.

If I change my cell phone number (since I've moved across the province, I need a number local to where I am now), will that affect anything I have stored in my phone, like contacts, notes, reminders, photos, etc.? I use Rogers and my phone is a Nokia 6101. I'm fairly certain it won't, since I think the SIM card with the number is separate, but I want to check.

Continuing the education theme:

Were you in gifted/talented classes as a student?
What grade did the program start in at your school?
What was the g/t program at your school called?
Were g/t students all in one class or pulled from regular classes?
Do you think it's important for schools to have g/t programs?

I ask mainly because the district I went to is basically dismantling their g/t program. Students will still be identified as g/t, but they will be in a regular classroom all day.

Say you have two daughters that are ~3 years apart in age. The younger one looks up to the older one, but is smart enough to know right from wrong.

The older daughter starts hanging out with the wrong crowd around the age of 13-14. She starts doing things like shoplifting, smoking, and drinking. However, around the time she turns 15, she stops doing these things, starts hanging out with different people, and actually looks down on people who do shit like that.

Now, the younger sister is 13, and has also started hanging out with the wrong crowd. She's doing the same things her sister was doing, plus others. She's shoplifting pills and cough syrup from the drugstore, she gets caught with speed in her school bathroom. She also steals cigarettes from her mom and weed from her dad.

Who is to blame for the younger sister's behavior? Herself, her friends, the older sister, or the parents?

ETA: I am the older sister.

Ever since the death of Megan Meier made national and international headlines, Missouri has been trying to pass a bunch of new internet harassment laws. The latest one would ban people from creating sockpuppets (ie: a false internet persona).

Question is, do you think internet bulling and/or sockpuppets should be illegal?

Do you think it's unconstitutional (ie: 1st Amendment freedom of speech) to ban people from creating sockpuppets?

What kind of punishment do you think should be given to those who are internet bullies and/or create sockpuppets?

Computer related stuff...

Where do I go on a Dell computer running Windows XP to find out how much RAM a computer has? How bout a Toshiba laptop running Vista?

Where can I find backup audio drivers for a 2002/2003 Dell desktop computer when the disc has gone MIA?

I'm reformatting my Dad's computer for him while he's on vacation and well my sis is asking about RAM and I think I MAY have found it on the computer for my Dad but I'm hoping I didn't cause the number I found said 64mb and I'd be really surprised if this thing was running at all if it only had 64mb of RAM. Also the Dell resource CDs did not have any audio drivers on them so I checked the website and they didn't have the right ones for this computer. My Dad thinks it was called "Santa Cruz", which sounds familar, however doesn't change the fact I can't find the CD. Any ideas where to go?

The people at my job REALLY stress the importance of proper identification. Non employees have to give at least their name and date of birth when they deal with employees. Employees must sign a form whenever they pick up their paychecks. We're all about making sure we are always dealing with the right person.

So how ridiculous is it that someone else (with the same first name, but different last name & initial) picked up my paycheck and didn't realize her mistake until the bank teller refused to cash it?

Is my bank going to give me drama when I try to deposit my check? It has the other girl's signature on it, with a line though it and her initials and date.

The One that Got Away

I just watched Richard Linklater's 'Before Sunset' and my question to you is one stolen straight off the dvd jacket:

Is there someone who lingers in your memory - someone who makes you wonder what might have been?

If so, who? How did you meet? Why didn't, or why couldn't you give it a shot at the time?

And lastly, if you had the chance, finances, time etc to try to find 'the one that got away', would you take it? Would you try to find this person again and see if the spark's still there? Or are you simply content with the memories you have?

The Ex and I dated for 5 years. Together, we have a daughter, who just turned 5. March of this year, The Ex and I broke up, but daughter and I lived in his house until the end of May. After that, daughter and I were in Cleveland for about a month and a half, visiting my boyfriend, and from July until now we have been living at my parents house.

Tax time is coming up.

In the beginning, after he and I broke up, we had agreed that since there is NO way in hell he would be getting back that much money without claiming our daughter, he was going to give the both of us some. Now he's going back and saying he doesn't feel he has to give us (basically me) a damn thing. He "bust's his ass off" for what he earns, but I feel like I bust mine raising our daughter, and I'm entitled to some.

Legally, who could(should) be able to claim our daughter?

My father, who's house we've been living in since July (I don't have a job's a long story)

or The Ex (who only sees our daughter when it's convenient for him..which is only maybe twice a week, and only hours out a time. He never has her days/weeks at a time like I do.)

I should add The Ex pays me $150 a month (something he and I set up as 'child support', until recently, when he had child support taken out on him legally.)

If legally, I'm not entitled to anything, then I'll get over it, and leave him alone. But I don't think it's right that I'm the one raising her, with a little financial support from The Ex (We haven't gone to court for's something we wanted to avoid, but as of late, I'm thinking it's going to be unavoidable), but he still thinks he's entitled to the benefits, where I'm screwed and get nothing.
