Does Mr Rogers still come out on public television?? if not, do you know why? 

They dont show him anymore at my city, they dont show baking with julia often either, i know she passed away but I still like the show.

Do you think its wrong to show tv shows of people who have passed away?

Do you have any favorite show from your local tv public station?

what is the funniest video you have ever seen in your life?

and link please or how I can look it up?

I'm in the mood for a really really good laugh. it can be anything.

WiFi

For the people who have computers that are able to access Wireless Networks, if you were to refresh a couple of times, what is the average number of Networks reachable around your home?

I live in a very small community but I live on one of the busiest streets and a lot would be 3-5 including my own..

I just wanted to see what bigger cities and communities are like for Wireless Internet.

I work at a fast food joint (specifically, Raising Cane's Fried Chicken) and all of my work clothes REEK.

I work counter sometimes kitchen others and I often close/open the store. I have some plain cotton work t-shirts (they just have the logo and are normal machine wash) and we wear jeans.... Well, after a few shifts I realized the stink wasn't coming out of my clothes, especially my jeans (which now means that I have four pairs of jeans and a pair of khakis that I don't wear except to work and to get messy in because they permanently smell like grease and filth...) Its not really a problem for just wearing the stuff to work because everything smells like fried chicken anyway so it's cool, whatever... but I want to reclaim my jeans! And I'm afraid the smell is going to transfer to my other clothes! D: I already wash them separately on Heavy Duty but they still reek.

My question is, then: How do you get the smell of fast food out of your cotton/denim clothes?

Video game t-shirts

I am looking for stores that sell awesome video game T-shirts. (I mean shirts that are actually awesome, not stupid "witty" shirts with dumb phrases on them. This probably rules out Hot Topic.) I know there are online stores that sell such shirts, but I want to go in person and try things on. What sorts of stores would sell such a thing?

Example of what I'm looking for: shirts like this

artsy tqc members:

when you are creating (painting, drawing, digital art, writing, etc.) do you prefer to work in the day or at night? do you prefer your workspace to be lit with natural sunlight, or would you rather have incandescent/fluorescent lighting?

i ask because: besides art classes in the days, i can only create at night because i cannot stand natural sunlight lighting my drawings. it bothers me.

to everyone: what borderline ocd quirks do you have about little things that don't actually matter, but are SO IMPORTANT and sometimes inconvenient for you? i have to check if my bedroom door is closed before i will be able to leave the house comfortably, but i am also forgetful and can never remember if i have closed the door, or if i have checked if i have closed the door. many mornings, i go back and check the door about three or four times. :/

Hypothetical situation. You're getting your morning coffee. You pick up a newspaper, then get a coffee and a doughnut from the counter. You pay, then walk down to the bus stop. You have five minutes before the bus comes. It's cold out, there is a slight drizzle, the lights of the city in the distance shimmer and glow. You realize that you'd put the paper under your arm, and they didn't see it so didn't charge you for it.
Which do you do?
* Go back and pay, and risk missing your bus
* Hell, it was only 50 cents.

going postal wonkyness

9:09 PM 1/8/08 · So, about a week or so back a bunch of people were going quite a bit nuts about new episodes of Futurama being on. I'm as much a fan as anybody else of this show but this was news to me. It still kinda is because I can't seem to figure out when they come on.

It's hard to search for something that comes on with old episodes multiple days of any given week.

I have decided that the simplest way to seek out the new episodes of Futurama is by threatening all of you. If I don't find out when the new ones are on I'm going to go postal. sure, doesn't seem like much of a threat, right? Why should it bother you if I go on a killing spree where I work? Well, that's the trick! I'm going to go postal at all of the places you work.

Think I can't huh? Don't answer this question and watch the chaos erupt!

When do the new episodes of Futurama come on?

I used to be friends with someone. Pete was my best friend. Pete said he fell for me and was in love with me. I never felt the same and I told him this (nicely, I wasn't mean or anything) Now, for various reasons I told him I didn't want to be friends with him. I didn't throw abuse and call him names, slag him off or anything.

He just messaged me with lots of abuse. Basically bringing me down. Said I was selfish, self centred, miserable. A whole load of things that aren't true. And although I know he's not worth crying over and I should suck it up rather than sit here almost in tears because someones calling me names, I feel like crap.

This 'man' is 29. Shouldn't he be past this stage?

HAIR REQUEST PLZ

Hey. My hair is naturally really dark blonde, almost light brown. I want to get highlights tomorrow, but DONT want platinum highlights (the only kind i've ever had). For the past year, I've been dying my hair a medium-dark brown, and am tired of how mousy it looks when it fades (it's demi-permanent). I want osmething that's a little more natural looking (at least color-wise), but my natural hair color is GROSS.

Do any of you have pictures of you with dark brown/light blonde hair that's been highlighted?? So that I can take it to the salon? lol.  I can't find much on google images cause I dont really know how to explain what I want. ;)

Thanks!

3. If not, have you ever in the past? If so, how old were you when you started smoking and how old are you now?

4. How much does a pack of cigarettes cost where you live?

My answers:

1. Yes.

2. Camel Lights.

3. I started when I was 17 and I am now 28.

4. They just upped the taxes, so they're about $6-$7 a pack, depending on where you go.

1) I wear earplugs to sleep(thanks, snoring boyfriend). A good amount of the time, when I wake up and pull them out, I get a terrible ear ache in my outer ear canal. I pull them out slowly and gently, so it's not like I'm ripping them out & creating suction. Why does this happen?

2) I shower at night because I'm terrible at getting anything done first thing in the morning. This is fine, except my hair usually ends up very limp and static-y after I brush it in the morning. It's nice and voluminous the night before. How can I try to preserve my hair a little better for the next day?

My bathtub is broken.

Our bathtub is not draining. Drano didn't do anything. The neighbor's suggestion of bleach didn't do anything. So now there's about 3 inches of water in the bathtub, along with Drano and bleach. The switch to drain or not to drain does nothing.

On top of that, when I turn the bathroom sink faucet on for longer than 5 seconds, water drains out of the sink, but also into the bathtub through the drain flip switch...and it's gray/dirty when it does so.

Is this a blocked pipe? I'm now afraid to flush the toilet or brush my teeth in the bathroom! The kitchen sink/drain/disposal is fine. I went around and asked, and none of our neighbors are having plumbing problems.

Is there anything we can try before calling the landlord in the morning and hoping they can send a plumber in the afternoon?

If you are in a "committed" relationship and your SO confesses to cheating on you "just once" in a "weak moment" and vows "never, ever, ever again", would/could you forgive him/her and stay in the relationship?
*I have a hard time forgetting and forgiving. I don't think I could continue being committed to the relationship.

Why do people cheat? 
*I think it has something to do with how the cheater feels about him/herself. Not necessarily how they feel about the person they cheated on. 

Would you blame yourself if your SO cheated on you?
*I'd do a bit of self-examination but in the end I'd figure it was his problem, not mine.

want to feed my sweet tooth

Ok, so I have some pie crust leftover, love chocolate and also have peanut butter, vanilla pudding, and the usual 'cooking supplies' (sugar, eggs, etc). 

Anyone know any good recipes I could use to make something of all this? If you can scale down the ingredients to a one person serving, that's great, if not, no worries I'll figure it out.  

EDIT: Ok, so went for what most people suggested - making the pudding, then combining melted chocolate/peanut butter into it and throwing the whole thing over the baked crust. YUMMMMM. Thanks so much for the obvious but overlooked suggestion! I'm getting chocolatey-peanut overload as we speak. This may just be food heaven.

Has anything made you want to stab someone today?

YES. I work in a school library and had to deal with an irate parent regarding the fact that we dare to have books on evolution that present it scientifically. Cue Xtians are SO OPPRESSED wank.

Do you think the endorsement from Kerry will help or hurt Obama? What would an endorsement from Bush do for a Republican?

I almost think it will hurt him. An endorsement from Bush would also hurt a candidate, IMO.

How can I get my cat to keep his collar on? The other two love theirs and have no problem with them at all. He'll manage to get his off within a couple of hours of putting it on. I tried rewarding him when I put it on and he's good about it, but now he just sits like a good boy until I'm out of sight, and then takes it off. Any suggestions?

Why doesn't my boss want to tell me exactly when seasonal work is over? She said sometime in february, promise dto look up when, but still won't give me an exact date. Is she maybe thinking of keeping me? There's so many people working there that I doubt it, but I guess it's posible.

If you could have ANY KIND of sandwich right this very moment, exactly what would be on it? Condiments? What type of bread?

If you cut your sandwiches in half, do you cut them straight in half or diagonally?

I want a smoked chicken and avocado on cracked wheat bread with spicy mayonnaise. Cut in half diagonally.

 My hairstylist forces me to straighten my hair before I go in for highlights. (my hair is curly.) But, he's a jackass.

is this typical? my hairstylist has also turned into more of a douche and is starting to suck on top of that (i keep having to go back for fixes). So, tomorrow I'm going to a random place I found in the phone book.

Question: should I straighten my hair before I go get highlights tomorrow? I hate straightening my hair just to have them wash it again right after. Or is that just something my old stylist preferred due to his jackassyness?

My teacher told me I don't have the authority to say Wuthering Heights is a terrible book because I'm not a literary critic. I think she is full of shit - I am literate and capable of reading it, I did, and it was terrible. Do you think she is full of shit, or am I just douche who hates proper literature?

What constitutes a terrible book, in your opinion?

Do you like to read?

Is a book necessarily good because it is a classic? Do you enjoy "classics"?

What books do you personally think should be considered classics?

word meters

I've been using the Zukutou word meter as a page counter for my reading. It was meant for NaNoWriMo, but same difference for my purposes. It doesn't work for me now. I registered with the site and still nothing. Anybody know what gives? I type in my numbers, hit enter, and nothing happens.

I liked how pretty it looked. =/ If I can't use it any more, anybody know an equally nice and free counter of some kind? I've found a few word meters by googling, but they either don't look good or say "words" or "word meter" right on them, which I don't like for aesthetic purposes.

You have been selected by the Government for part of a secret, underground, possibly immoral and unconstitutional experiment in an effort to better increase the productivity of the American [if you aren't America, substitute your countries name--such as "Communism"] Military and its other institutions. During your stay in the underground bunkers, you have been established as one of the most promising prospects of the experiments; having developed at a rate of at least four times that of your "peers"--if such a word is even worth considering in these circumstances.

During the final parts of your training, the compound you are staying at is breeched and a man whose motives you cannot quickly discern assassinates the people who have been training you and providing you with copious amounts of chemicals and porn and whatever else you might happen to want--pie, for instance. The man begins to tell you, in typical fashion, that you were going to be used by the Government to be a type of Super Assassin. You would be sent into various countries to eliminate "threats" (he even does the air quotes) that are stationed in those countries. By the end of the discussion, your previously zealous attitude for your situation has become rattled and you are faced with a choice:

Do you:
1- Accept the man's option to join with him, however long that the partnership may last, to expose the "truth" of this to the world--consequences be damned?
2- Punch the guy in the face, put on a cape, and bang reporter ladies/dudes/houseplants?
3- Punch the guy in the face, join the military, and continue your mission, knowing that you're doing the best thing you can do?
4- Kill the man in a fire-y explosion of superpowers, and take over the world?
5- Do your best to forget this incident via drugs, alcohol, and enough prostitute to choke and elephant?
6- MY PARENTS ARE DEAAAAAAAAAD.

1. to those of you that watch ER, or watched one of the previous 2349857934 seasons - - do you think this might be the last season? my dad thinks so, because they're bringing the people back that were on and left the show years ago.

2. what's your favorite fruit?

3. how old are you? do you think your age fits you? for example, i sometimes feel the same age as the residents at the nursing home i work at, and then sometimes like a 7 year old girl that laughs at fart jokes. i'm 23.

HALP

I am working on cover letters for internships and several contacts are females. All of them just have a first and last name, and no Mrs., Ms., Miss, etc. When starting the letter, I can't just say "Dear Jane Doe", can I? Or should I put "Dear Mrs. Doe" and hope it's correct? I feel like I shouldn't be addressing them by a first name.

I have an Alex. MALE OR FEMALE??? Now what do I do?

What is something you really hate doing, that you don't need to do and do not get paid for, that you do anyway? Why do you still do it?

If you told someone you had lost weight, and they replied with "are you doing alright" in a concerned voice, how would you react/feel?

 Who is a person that influences you? in any way, big or small.

in my artwork, I just realized that Peter Max is a big influence of mine.  I was a huge fan of Yellow Submarine and I just kind of realized that the artwork from that movie influenced me a TON.

You know that blue "stain" you get on white shoes when you wear jeans with them? How do you make that fade or go away?

I need some help with swimwear, particularly from other females who are well-endowed up top. I like halters best, but have a hard time finding one that keeps everything in & up. The best suit I ever had, surprisingly, was from Aeropostale but their selection doesn't seem so great this time of year.

So just a few questions --

1. Where can I buy good swimwear this time of year? Either online/in stores is fine..
2. Have you had any experiences with Victoria's Secret swimwear?

Anyone else east super crappy at night? I can do great during the day, eating healthy and all that. Come nighttime I start eating crappy. I just ate three Krispy Kreme donuts and chocolate pudding because I'm just a genius like that. My willpower is so good during the day. I don't know why it changes. I'd love to not have that junky food around but I live at home and no one in my family is over weight so they don't really care about what they eat. : (

How do you motivate yourself to eat healthier and/or exercise more? How do you curb your cravings for food like cake, pie, cookies, etc?
