What songs are popular on your city's pop/rock/hiphop station right now? My radio station only shows a few songs out of the good amount that they play, and I'm trying to put together a play list for a friend's party. She specified wanting "music thats popular on the radio right now" ...

I am a slobby person, I admit it. But so are you, deep inside.
So let's have some personal hygiene questions.

1.What's the longest you've gone without showering? What do you consider an ok. amount of time between showers?
2.Do you ever get too lazy to brush your teeth at night? (like, well I'm doing it in the morning anyway...)
3.Do you change your socks/underwear everyday?
4.What's one thing you're really strict about?
5. What do you never do?

I asked how i could fix a vaccum cord. not advice on how i should raise my dog.

I have a roll of film, which i don't want to just bring to my localphoto store, but I want the film to go straight digital. I don't thinki even want the actual prints, just the film.

Anywhere you guys know of that I can send it, a webbased company or somewhere, hopefully not too expensive!?

p.s. I'm not going to buy a film scanner for one roll, I just want to get a roll developed, and put on CD instead of getting prints.

Grammar question

Regarding the part of this sentence that says "Northeast United States", is this the correct way to say this? Or would it be Northeastern?

Growing up in the Northeast United States, I was unfamiliar with the Christian Right as its influence is not as prevalent as it is in other parts of the country.

Poll #1125578 (Donner) Party all night long

You're in the Donner Party and your wagons are all trapped in the snow. The food's gone. You've eaten the horses. The winter is showing no signs of abating. In order to survive, you'll have to eat a human being. But someone has to make that sacrifice of their life. Let's say there's 15 of you left.. The leader of the group makes it fair: if you want to eat to stay alive, you must become part of the lottery. Whichever number is pulled in the lottery reveals the person who shall be eaten by the others in the pool. 9 other people agree to enter their lives in the lottery just in the hopes of being able to survive a few more days by eating the flesh of their co-traveller. Would you enter the lottery, and thus, possibly be eaten (1 in 10 chances then)?

Yes, I would enter the lottery
No, I would not

What are your thoughts on this situation?  Uproariously funny or highly inappropriate?

All the employees (and the boss) of a small medical-type office keep track of the hilariously inappropriate things that are accidentally said on a regular basis.  The office has a toy box for child patients.  Boss hilariously misspeaks by joking with a (grown-up) patient that, "they did so well at their appointment that they could get a toy from the toy box, but we don't have any adult toys."  An employee decides to get the boss an "adult toy box" (filled with mini packs of lube, suggestive and/or crude pins and key chains, wine charms with penises, and other "adult novelty" items).  Boss is a different gender than employee and is old enough to be employee's parent.  Workplace is a family business with half of boss's family working there, but no employee is under the age of thirty.

I'll post my thoughts in a comment.

opinions on evil raccoons.

I keep three rabbits in my backyard. They have a large, 3 story cage, a large hole they dug under it, and a 20 by 20 foot space or so to romp in. Maybe more. It's winter, cold, so I figure I shouldn't close them in because they may need a mad dash around the yard to keep warm every once in a while.

Well, a couple of raccoons have been coming by, and I've fed them. I thought they were scavengers. I had no idea they killed small animals, I just thought they'd eat them if already dead. Last night they came buy again. We watched, joyfully, as they chomped on cheese its and golfish crackers. They were so cute.

This morning one of my rabbits was found dead. Mauled. Fur everywhere. I'm in shock, but not total disbelief. I can't believe the raccoons would betray me like that.

Tonight I want to close the other two rabbits in their cage, and shoot the raccoons if they come by.

What would you do if this happened to you? Would you kill the raccoons or simply accept the loss and accept that it was your fault, that the rabbits should have been inside, or at least locked in the cage at night.

EDIT: I posted this almost immediately after I found out. I would never have really shot the animal, but I was angry. Next time I see them I'll scare them off. And I will be locking up the rabbits at night from now on. And I didn't know they were predators...excuses excuses. But I just want everyone to know that I'm no longer even thinking about killing it because it was my fault and I'm mad at myself and I can't turn back time.

Why is it that everyone but me knew not to feed raccoons?
I had no idea they killed, I thought they were purely scavengers.

[info]verytaken's post had me checking my bank account online, and lo and behold, I found a charge for $539.40 from Comcast on my credit card. We've been with Dish Network for over 3 years, so after checking with my husband to see if he knew anything about that, (he didn't) I called my bank to dispute it. This is the second time in 2 weeks that we've had to put in a DNR (Do Not Recognize) for charges on our credit card. (The first time was not from Comcast.) We're getting new credit cards and hopefully, the charge will be reversed like it was the first time.

1. So, have you had something similar happen to you? If so, what happened?

2. Do you think having that credit card cancelled and a new one opened will affect my credit?

3. What colour is the wall on your right?

not sure who else to ask...

Last month the orthodontist put brackets on my teeth and inserted 8 spacers. Yesterday I went in to have one spacer that had fallen out replaced. They told me that they put the wrong number in on my first visit and put in eight more for a total of 16. I went in to the office today for my first adjustment & to have an expander put in. He removed the bottom spacers & the wire. He had trouble getting the expander in. It hurt really, really bad. They said that I had plenty of space & my teeth were just sore from having the spacers in for only one day. It hurt so bad that tears were running down my face, I started whimpering, and I was shaking pretty bad. So another ortho came in and she got it in. They asked if I had taken ibuprofen (which I had). She was trying to do something with the spring so its attached but I couldnt handle the pain any longer. I told them I needed them to stop and leave because I couldnt calm down.

How fucking normal is that amount of pain? I'm supposed to return on Thursday (I HAVE to) to have the bottom corrected and the top expander put in. They also have to put my top & bottom archwires back on. Needless to say I am terrified and I dont want to go back.

Do you have any advice for me at all, please?

(Also, I went to the doctor on Friday & he told me I had shingles which definitely causes my nerves to be bad... I dont think this has a GIANT effect on the ortho thing but I wanted to add it in case)

If you've ever seen the movie The Warriors you know they have a whole bunch of different types of gangs in the movie and everyone in a certain gang dressed sort of alike.

Paper Questions

A couple of fellow classmates and I were discussing this huge 20+ page analytical paper we have to write for our Senior Seminar class. I was surprised when more than half of them admitted to paying money to have someone write their paper for them before, and will probably do the same thing again with this paper we have. So....

1. Have you ever used any of those websites that write papers for you? (dopapers.com, masterpapers.com, etc.)

2. If so, what reason(s) do you have for doing so? Did you get "caught"?

3. If not, would you ever consider doing it? And for what reasons?

4. For those who think it is wrong, would you tell the professor if you knew that someone submitted a paper that was not their own work?

Heath Ledger died. :(
TMZ has learned that Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger has died in NY.

He was found dead in his bed in one of his residences in Soho by his housekeeper at 3:35 PM ET today. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe it was not a crime.

The 28-year-old actor has a two year old daughter with former fiancee Michelle Williams. He was set to play the Joker in the upcoming Batman film "The Dark Knight."

Story developing...

Who's next?

from CNN:
NEW YORK (CNN) -- Actor Heath Ledger is dead, the New York Police Department said Tuesday.

Heath Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment. The Academy Award nominated actor was 27. Ledger's housekeeper found him dead in his Manhattan apartment, New York police said.

He died at 3:26 p.m., they said.

The New York Fire Department received a call at 2:27 today responding to a "cardiac arrest call" in New York. They found an unresponsive male dead at the scene.

In 2005, the actor played Ennis Del Mar in "Brokeback Mountain," about two cowboys who had a secret relationship. The role earned him the Oscar nomination.

from msnbc
NEW YORK - Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday at a downtown Manhattan residence in a possible drug-related death, police said. He was 28.

According to WNBC, Ledger was found with pills strewn all around him.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the Manhattan apartment believed to be his home. The housekeeper, who went to let Ledger know the masseuse was there, found him unconscious at approximately 3:30 p.m. ET, according to the New York Times. After receiving no response from the actor after shaking him, they called authorities.

Updated, 5:45 p.m. | The actor Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment in Manhattan inhabited by the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, according to the New York City police. Signs pointed to a suicide or an accidental overdose, police sources said. Mr. Ledger was 28.

Any ideas? (Ebay stores, websites, etc would be greatly appreciated. Doesn't have to be a brand)

Nautical Themed Songs

I hope this won't be TL;DR. I am a part of a choir, and our theme for our show this year is a nautical theme. We're having a talent show, and all the acts have to fit with this theme, too. Two other girls and I want to sing a song in the talent show. We were going to sing "River Lullaby" from the Prince of Egypt, simply because it was water themed and pretty easy (we are kind of running out of time), and because it had three verses, so each of us could sing one. But we can't find an accompaniment track for it. :(

So do you have any suggestions for a nautical song three time-crunched sopranos could sing?

Complete nobodies with talent. Americans call in and pick the one who's the most attractive or least annoying to win
Attractive girls competing for modelling contracts
Anything where Donald Trump is involved
Cooking/fashion/(what have you) show featuring a bunch of motivated talented folks, where the winner is selected by a panel of people who work in the industry
Bunch of people with arguably low qualities living together in a house for an extended period of time
Teams of people compete against each other in events around the world
People stranded on an island, competing against each other, perservering through the elements and general reduction of creature comforts
Annoying kids being put in their place by some nanny
Annoying spouses forced to pair off with other annoying spouses
Fat people competing against each other to see who can lose the most weight
Dating shows, where one attractive person who inexplicably can't find a decent relationship is forced to date from a pool of available members of the opposite sex
Like above, but with some twist in it, like the guy's an idiot or dirt poor or she's really a man
Complete slobbish packrats, living in squalor and clutter, are rescued by perky, neat people, who makeover their shitty hovel
Gay guys makeover clueless straight guys

Does anyone know of a website where users submit their artwork and it's then either voted on by other users or judged in some other way and the winner wins some amount of money (I think it was $20,000) and they get their artwork made into a t-shirt?

A guy came into my work today and was wearing this really cute yellow t-shirt with a robot on it listening to some music with a little girl so I commented on it and he told me about this website. I thought he had said it was called friend list or friends list but I just tried typing that in to the navigation bar with various endings and nothing came up. Then I googled friend list and variations on keywords I thought might pull something up but couldn't find anything. I know it's a long shot, but I'm really hoping someone here might know or be able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks guys, ilu!

EDIT: SOLVED! Thanks guys, it's threadless which I've totally been to before but now it's not going to kill me not knowing.

Quick fix?

Dear TCQ,
I am visiting my family in bumfuck, MA and I stupidly left my capo back in Virginia.
There is nowhere within a half hour drive to get a capo, and it's 7:42 and I want instant gratification.

What can I use in place of a capo?

I've already tried:

Tying string,twine, rope around the strings.
Tying string to a piece of leather.
Rubber bands.
Kill Bill - Elle

Let's say someone asks you on a date/for your phone number/whatever. You really don't know them at all, and have no interest in dating them. How do you normally turn them down?

I always say I have a boyfriend. They normally back off. Some guys are creepy and don't take the hint, though.

What are several key items that a high-schooler needs when she heads off to college? What are several things (under $100) that I could afford to buy for her? She'll be living in a dorm, btw. She does not need a computer or similar items.
not my dog...but about the same

art question

Where might I get a really big piece of scratchboard soon? I would prefer black with gold underneath but anything would be fine.
How expensive is it?
My options are Michael's, Hobby Lobby, a couple of little art supply stores, and I think that's all...unless there's another big chain art supply store I can't think of.

Sleeping kittens, wild cats, and fantasy art.

3. This morning my neighbors were the loudest I ever heard them - they woke me up screaming "FUCK!!!". I also heard "THE NEIGHBORS CAN HEAR YOU!!!" I was half asleep so I didn't think to then, but next time should I just yell back for them to shut up?

Would you vote for Arnold Schwarzenegger if he were allowed to run for president?

Edit: If you live in California, do you think he is a good governor?

Do you think that it is unfair that someone can't run for president just because they weren't born in this country?

Hey guys. I'm bored and tired of hearing about Heath Ledger. Soo...

Could you pretty please recommend on-line RPGs? I've done text-based, mainly. I've done Imperian, Howrse, random LJ RPs, although I don't like Gaia. Message-board-based works too, although I'd prefer a multi-player. Thanks!

PS: I know I'm a loser. Get over it. :D

 Trying to find a song..

It's a rap song, but you can tell it's mixed... Tori Amos' "horses" is in the background ... "I got me some horses to ride on, to ride on..." and then who wants to ride with me, etc. etc. by a black rapper.  Any ideas?

Should I wait an hour for the dryer to finish and then make my bed with sheets fresh from the dryer? Or make my bed with other sheets now and go to bed in about half an hour?

If it makes any difference, the sheets in the dryer are gray and the other ones I'd use are bright green.
