Tim onstage!

Is it natural for me not to be able to place phone calls through my cell phone right now? A friend called me right after midnight to wish me a happy New Year's, but I've been trying to get through to other friends and have, thus far, been unsuccessful. I don't hear a ringing sound when I'm trying to get through to them, and my texts won't go through. My uncle said something about so many people calling others right now, something with the company or satellites, or something...well, he's pretty drunk, so it's natural he wouldn't make much sense, but still. Is this normal?

Ever met someone who was a compulsive liar?

My 13 year old sister is a compulsive liar. You cannot get a true answer when asking her a question. If you ask her if she did something, she will deny it like there's no tomorrow even if you have proved it over and over again.

She also comes up with these false (and incredibly detailed) scenarios that she tells her friends. The most amusing one I've heard was that she was addicted to speed and my parents made her go to rehab in another state. When it came time to board the plane, my mom started crying and changed her mind at the very last second. Currently she's describing a party she's at right now and how drunk she is in bulletins on myspace (on the sidekick that she doesn't have), but she's sitting in her room drinking apple juice... doesn't seem like a very fun party to me.

What causes someone to lie like this? Trying to fit in? She wants attention? Deeper issues?

What do you think of the dress below the cut? Be honest.


Additionally:

Would your opinion change if it was a relatively expensive dress (more than $50)?
If you could alter it (sewing), what would you change?
Would you wear it with the shirt underneath, as in the photos, or alone (...or with something else)?

Film developing/photo CD

I know that a lot of big photo developing places offer photo CDs when you develop film, but does it work for black-and-white film or just color? I don't actually know how they make a photo CD so it all might be the same.

Edit: Kodak's Web site says:

"Pictures from 35 mm color negative film (all speeds) or from KODAK ADVANTIX Film can be transferred to a KODAK Picture Disk.

Pictures from color positive slide film, disk film, 110-size film, and film negatives can not be put on a Picture Disk."

It doesn't specifically say anything about B&W film.

Calories

How do you calculate calories when most lables include a "calories" and "calories from fat" content on them?

I'm confused because something has 140 calories, but 0 calories from fat, and I'm not sure what the difference is, healthy-eating wise.


EDIT: I'm asking how "fat calories" figure into the health of the food. If it's got less "FAT" calories, is it generally a good-for-you food? Or is it deceiving?

Car question

On the hood of my car, close to my windshield are two little black things that sprays the windshield wiper fluid onto my windshield. When I was cleaning the snow off my car, one of these came off and now there is just a little hole on my hood.

I want to call someplace and ask if they have that part and if I could put it back in or if they would need to do it but I have no idea what it's called. I have tried googling various word combinations of windshield washer fluid dispenser sprayer etc but nothing is really coming up. There are some diagrams too that label every single part but not that.

Does anyone know what this is called?
Do most cars not have this part?

EDIT: IT'S called a windshield washer fluid nozzle!

sexual relations between twins and popping rice like it's corn

Whenever you see twins, do you immediately wonder to yourself whether or not they've made out or touched each other in the past, or will in the future?

Do you wish that you had a twin for this exact purpose?

.... what about Siamese twins. Do you think that the fact that they're attached to each other raises the probability of them getting curious? Should this be considered masturbation?


BONUS 5th question:

If you are a twin, does this question offend you or arouse you?





Is it possible to pop rice the same way corn is popped? Is there anything else that can be popped? Apple seeds?

Serious question

You know those TLC shows about those 600-1,000 lb. people and how they get gastric bypass surgery or go about their day? They eat 33,000 calories a day and are just enormous human beings. My question is: how can they afford it? That's a lot of food per day, and these fatties are too big to get out of bed, let alone hold down a job. Where's the money coming from? Are there family members who are enablers? Even so, it's gotta exhaust their finances. Trust funds? Inheritances?

Okay, so. Let's say you have a job, and you work with a friend there. You notice that two of the managers (who, amongst other undesirable things) seem to be really needlessly mean to the friend you work with. Let's also say one of the managers is the boss's son. And, for the heck of it, let's say that there's another employee who is lazy and doesn't do hardly anything, and he is also the boss's son. What do you do?

Questions

Question for those of you who scrapbook out there.

I have a collection of postcards that friends have sent me over the years from various trips they took, and also some from doing Postcrossing. I would like to put them in something like a scrapbook or photo album type thing so they stop being in this messy pile in a box that is difficult to look through.

The catch is, I would like to be able to see the front AND the back, without having to detach the postcard from a page, or pull it out of a slot.

Does there exist a type of scrap-booking thing that is like... clear on both sides and I can put the postcard between it, and it will stay where I put it (so not like, a large page pocket thingy, if you know what I mean). I'd like to be able to put more than one postcard to a page, use all available space, you know? Kind of like those photo albums with the clear sticky paper on both sides, and the cardboard in the middle where you place the pictures... except without the cardboard (which, I tried just removing it, but the plastic doesn't stick to itself :(

Does such a thing exist? If so, could you point me to it? I haven't found anything like it in my searches.

What'd you do? 

My answers: 

I think it was decent. I've had worse. 

I stayed home with my bf drinking Merlot and we watched the ball drop. We stayed up until 3:00 AM watching the first two episodes of the first season of Rome and playing Sould Caliber II.

 First of all, I am working overnight by myself, so I am going to be really bored... don't mind all my questions. 

1. Do you buy your significant other a present for Valentine's Day? 

2. If so, do you think buying a DVD is not a good present for Valentine's Day for my b/f? He's a Pink Floyd fan and talks frequently about The Wall but I've noticed he doesn't actually have a copy of it on DVD. 

3. What are some good games (besides Boomshine) that I can play while I'm sitting here bored out of my mind for the next 7 hours?

job questions

i'm considering applying for a new position at my current place of employment. i'm only planning on staying at the company until july at the latest, since i'll be doing a work placement for my college program that will require me to available full days for at least 10 weeks. i'm also not technically available for the exact hours they want, but it's only 15 hours a week and i can work those on my days off from school.

the new position would give me extra training in a different section that would look great on my resume, and it will give me some flexibility if i ever need to go back to the company in the case that i don't get a full-time job after my work placement.

so, do i go ahead and apply for the position? how do i convince them that it's a good idea to move me over even though i'll only be there until july? is it even possible to convince them of that? they already seem fairly interested, and some of my co-workers have told me to apply, but what are the chances they'll want to hire someone for the position who won't be there permanently?

for those of you who have macs and the program iphoto...

whenever I crop my picture for a facebook picture, for example, it always ends up being HUGE on my profile. Does anyone know how I can get the thumbnail size to be the actual size?

or what I should do to adjust the photo to make it smaller?

thanks so much in advance!!

Hi there! Long time commenter, first time poster. =)

1. What is your favorite physical feature about yourself? 

2. Have you ever done something that you tell people you regret, but secretly you're actually proud of yourself for doing it?
