how do you motivate yourself to work out?
i've been lazy since marching band ended and i want to get back into shape. /:
What do you consider foreplay?
You have a box that's filled with to its entirety with water. I need to give the box some conditions that may not be possible; first, the box is truly airtight; nothing can get out. The box is also somehow unbreakable, for the sake of this experiment. The box also doesn't change shape when it's heated; it doesn't expand in any way.
So, you have this box filled with water. My question concerns what happens when that water is heated.
When something is heated – including water – the particles expand. However, in this unbreakable box, there's no room for them to expand into. There's not even room for them to vaporise into. So, does this expansion process just not happen? Will the energy be passed onto something else, somehow?
I was thinking, maybe the water would just "refuse" to take on the extra energy because it couldn't store it nor use it. Instead, the air around the box will just be heated as if the box wasn't even there.
What books would you recommend I pick up to read? Can you give me a very quick synopsis of what the book is about/like?
Does anyone know where its from?
What temperature should I reheat my food at in the oven until I can get myself a new microwave?
Croissant'wich or McMuffin?
Yogurt or pudding?
Apples or oranges?
PB&J or Turkey and cheese?
Pepsi or Coke?
Lo mein or rice?
Crunchy cookies or soft?
Pizza or spaghetti?
1: When you drink coffee or hot tea, do you put stuff in it or drink it straight?
2: Do you ever eat peanut butter,jelly or the like right out of the jar?
3: Dr Who or Torchwood?
4: Favorite color?
2. When was the last time you transfered balances between cards?
3. Is it sunny outside this morning?
4. Could you suggest a song for me to listen to?
b.) Is it really so terrible?
c.) Where do you buy your clothes?
d.) Do you like chubby girls/boys?
b.) Not at all (:
d.) Chubby boyfs are so much more cuddly.
Q: What's your favorite plus size store?
O: Mine is DEB.
For me it's Clerks II and Superman Returns.
Edited to add: You'd be sharing this with your husband and cat.
I had a Carly Simon tape that I adored, and the other kids made fun of me. James Taylor, too.
If you eat it, what is your favorite flavor?
In 2 weeks my husband comes home and we have a Marine Corps. function to attend, and I have actually never been to one before. He told me it's a formal occassion, so I will need to dress up, (He will be wearing his dress blues.)
Before I get all big in the tummy area from the baby, I want to look extra-good, especially since in 2 weeks it's our anniversary, and I just want to look extra-awesome for when he comes home.
As far as my dress choices go, I've narrowed it down to three.
Which do you prefer?
Are they formal enough?
Edit: In reponse to my "coloring" Unfortunately, I am very pale. I have (newly dyed) dark brown hair, and blue eyes. I can post pictures if it's really necessarry.

2. Which part of your body do you soap up first in the shower?
3. What are your favorite trip-hop artists/groups?
4. Do you like smoked salmon? How do you like to eat it? I'm talking about real thick smoked salmon, not thin lox strips.
I forgot to save all my favorites from my old laptop :(
what's on your computer??
<b>EDIT: NOT SANDWICHES. I am soooo sick of sandwiches, hahaha. Sorry!</b>
I'm sad. What do you do to cheer yourself up?
What are your favorite youtube vidoes? Post them?
Would a secretarial gig be a good or bad idea if someone had a suit fetish?
How do you deal if your friend has a boyfriend who is a douche (verbally abusive, controlling, dented her brand new car and ripped out one of the air vents, etc etc) who she complains about yet doesn't break up with him? How do you not get angry or cope with the anger because you know it's her life and her decisions? She can't go places without consulting him and it's taking a toll on our friendship because I'm tired of hearing her bitch and then seeing her give him chance after chance. I don't want to tell her not to vent to me because I'm her friend and she's a sweetheart.
Does anyone still get highlights with the caps anymore (instead of foil), what are the disadvantages of this?
edited to add: 2 yr old child in house. would prefer to find a way that doesn't require too many ant traps that the child could potentially get into.
What are good software and/or websites to help build a list of music completely from scratch?
I'm willing to pay if the pay system is significantly better than free ones.
Consider the following:
-I don't know the name of much of the music I like.
-I want a decent recommendation system.
-It would be preferable to be able to export the lis to use in other mediums.
-It should make it easy to look up song names, but if not, I can just use CDDB or something else.
Any other helpful features would be gret.
I know I do... and it makes for some hilarious conversation.
2)where would I buy saltwater taffy? *can't find it in krogers or snucks..*
Churchill, Vic or Bob??
Have you gotten it, or has someone close to you gotten it?
Does it bother you when someone posts a question directed to or about another person in the community? For example:
"Anyone remember what loanwords's favorite color is?"
"Hey, shippo, where'd you get your awesome icons?"
2. More fun: what mythological/magical creature would you most like as a pet?
(me: Goldfrapp - strict machine)
I just got an IPOD and I want more music to put on it!

For you single people out there,
Can you name a movie that's so bad it's actually good?
should I dye some of it blue? or another color? or is this a really bad idea? suggestions?
She doesn't want "I was born in... I have three sisters and 46 cats..." We're supposed to write about our interests, our passions, life goals, etc.
I have no idea how to even start the thing. Anyone have any suggestions?
(Sorry, I know it's a homework question, but I really, really need help)
I'm 95% positive that my county animal control is no-kill. They have bred pitbulls in the past... I don't know what happens with the pups, but I highly doubt it's good. :(
A couple years ago I heard about a school/course/class for personal safety that was offered somewhere in Montreal and I haven't heard of it since. I know I found their website at one point, but that was years ago. I'm considering moving to Montreal in the future, and I want to find this website again and look over it.
The guy who runs the business has a trademark class called "The Ripper" (I think...or something like that) that he does in cities across Canada and the US. The classes at this place aren't martial arts, they're the best ways to fight back when attacked (scratching, going for the eyes, etc.) and they're suppose to be quite good. I think kick boxing was also offered here.
Has anyone heard of this place?
My dad wants to buy a laptop but with too much brands in the market now, we are confused on which model to get.
Well, we have an acer laptop at the moment and don't wish to have another one.
So can you guys give an idea on what brand and which model is good.
I have macbook in mind.
Thanks in advance.
What should the shirt say?
Would you wear a shirt like this? What would you do if you saw a girl wearing this shirt?
2. Has anyone here ever been to Morocco? Did you like it?
2a. If you haven't, what's the best country you've visited and what made it so great?
3. If you are prone to depression, or even if you only get depressed occasionally, what are your "triggers"? Weather? A certain person? Money? A certain thought?
edit: go answer there first and then come back here!
For a minor point in my undergraduate thesis, I'm trying to argue whether or not Sandra Bullock's star image changed, if even slightly, post-Miss Congeniality. Like, before MC, she played a lot of tomboyish characters, and I'm pretty sure she still plays (mostly) the same kind of characters, but I realized I haven't seen many of her post-MC movies, or at least not recently enough to remember the details of her characters.
So my question is basically, do you think Sandra Bullock's characters from Infamous, The Lake House, Crash, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Murder by Numbers, etc., are more "feminine" than her characters from earlier movies, including 28 Days, Forces of Nature, Practical Magic, Hope Floats, Speed 1 & 2, The Net, and While You Were Sleeping? Feel free to describe specific character/plots to me to jog my memory if you'd like.
Thanks everybody, I appreciate it!
How is this affected by ~taking drugs~?
If you give a serious answer then I will handcuff you to a dead emu :P
How do you get over someone?
I really want to find out if 'Asleep' by the Smiths is in anything.
2. did anyone see reign over me? is it good?
We had decided if our baby was to be a girl, her name would be Ophelia.
If we had a boy, then Victor.
I was telling this to my in law's...
(The incredibly lol-worthy ones from last night...)
And they decided that those two names, sound like they are made for dark haired/dark eyed children.
Uh, I don't really care, we're going to name our kids what we please, but my question is:
1)Do certain names make you think of how someone might look, automatically?
When I think of little blonde haired, blue eyed girls, I think of names Like Autumn, Ellie.
2) What's your name and what are your natural features?
I'm Rachael and my features have been described above.
Edit: no poll
What about your favorite post made by one of your friends?
After it fell out, how was your hair (was it dry, damaged, ect.)?
How long did it stay?
Before TQC, I only used a few like lol, gtg, brb. Now many have been added to my e-vocab, like iawtc, i no rite, srsly, etc. and I find it weird because I always hated people who used such shorthand :(
I say "whatev" in real life. "Obv" is my favorite though.
I've just finished watching Season two and I'm in love with it, but if he's got some new companion who's just shite (I'm going to miss Rose horribly), well, I'd rather not watch it than be disappointed.
The last comm (again, besides TQC) you commented to?
2. which ones have a balance?
1. wickes, old navy, jc penney, home depot, lowes, sams club, kohls
2. home depot, jc penney
I'm in Canada and the only channel airing it is SunTV. it's been shaking and scrambled all day and I doubt it'll fix itself in time for the awards. I also have JLC's Internet TV thing and none of the international broadcasters are available on there.
I'm desperate. I'm an awards show junkie.
What was the high point of your day?
I recently donated blood and they are doing this thing where you can go online and see your cholesterol levels 3-5 days after you give blood. Well I looked at mine and it said my cholesterol level was 228! WTF mostly! I'm 19, I work out 5 days a week for at least 45 min. and I haven't had soda, chips, etc. in almost 2 years!!!
So my question to you, is it possible to have extremely high level of HDL (good) and low levels of LDL (bad) and they just didn't seperate the two when they told me my level?
I'm really worried now...
Did anyone have a shit-fit over the "white person" rendition?
Edit: Does anyone have the link for that?
EDIT THE SECOND! Thanks, found the post!
Edit: We don't see each other every weekend. I really made it sound like we do. We usually see each other once or twice a month if we're lucky. We don't always have the money for the gas to make the drive, and most of our relationship, I haven't had a reliable enough car to know if it would be able to even make it back to my house.
We do keep in touch daily, whether it's IM, phone, or texts. But I guess I just thought the longer we were together, the easier it would be spending gaps apart. But that really doesn't seem to be the case.
Do you own any? Do you wear them?
I'm trying to choose between a new lappy, bongos, a pink sewing machine, or feeding one of those children from Feed the Children. I can do the kid thing on my own though, so it's not a good gift idea.
Any other ideas? I really can't think of anything I actually want so I might go with a raincheck.
Six months ago I was sleeping peacefully in my bed when I awoke to noice a small shape (a mouse) scurrying across my bed.
Since then I have slept in the guest room because I have been too traumatized to go back to my bed.
So TQC, how can I get over the post traumatic stress of this event?
Has anything similar or gross happened to you?
a. flattered that there is still "chivalry" in this world
b. insulted that he thinks you should sit because you're female
Disclaimer: this is not my homework. The owner of the homework has asked numerous people including a relative who said "12" when she said she had a question for him. So, either we find the definition, or 12 it is! :)
If you can help, that would be wonderful. Thank you!
Oh oh, and the other questionable one is "concrete symbol" but we googled this one (as well as the other, with much less luck) and we came up with "concrete representations of an idea" ... is this correct?

2. Middle Eastern and Mexican
5. I don't need them to, but I generally like to see what they (and others) put.

2. What is your average resting heart rate?
3. What is your blood type?
Did therapy work for you? What did you do/talk about during your sessions?

2. Do you get stressed easily?
3. What is a goal you have for this year?

I adore fanfiction, but I'm really picky about writing quality. I love stories that explore the hows and whys of a universe that isn't addressed in the story itself, like how magic wands actually work, or what diplomacy involves when both parties are ninjas.
I'd have to go with Coupling.
Will you post a clip from it?
why do most live journalers use icons instead of pictures of themselves? i've never understood that.
2. how much are you annoyed by people that say they are lactose-intolerant, but then you always see them eating ice cream, cream sauce, etc.?

( I can crochet! )
So, what're you making me and what do you want in return?
Let's go people.
Today I feel sort of achy in my stomach but haven't gotten sick... no one else we were around or went to dinner with has been sick. My friend says he feels a "little bit" better but I guess he's still sick. Everyone in this area who has had the stomach flu (my girlfriend's cousins and brother and best friend) has felt better the next day without fail.
Do you think it is food poisoning or the stomach flu? What is the chance that I wouldn't get food poisoning from eating the same food (albeit off of different plates). If it is either of these things do you think I'm in the clear now or do you think there's a chance that I'll still get sick? I haven't been eating much and have been drinking lots of gingerale... I HATE throwing up. What other things do you recommend (I also took an Airborne yesterday) to prevent me from throwing up?
Or, how about your BEST roommate, and how they were great?
1.) I have finally decided to get a breast augmentation in July. Has anyone here had one? Experiences please?
2.) My SO will be leaving for Iraq on Valentine's day, shitty timing eh? Does anyone know of good websites that have "I support my troops" type shirts? Cute, girly stuff? He is in the Air Force if that helps.
EDIT: Since when did TQC become so fucking rude? Jealous much?
did you keep the films/get pics of the films?
can i see?

I've got a huge project to finish, but it bores me to death, so I find myself rewarding one sentence with 10 minutes play time.
I told my family I wanted to change my major from graphic design to criminal justice and basically got laughed out of the room. My boyfriend's reaction was almost the same, but with a lot more concern about income.
Do you have any super secret family recipes? What kind of dish is the recipe for?
is there anywhere that i can talk to someone online?
i am not suicidal, just very very sad.
[21:04] friend: ......ew.

What other vampire series do you recommend?
The new movie is giving me hope for Hellboy. Should I read the series?
Oh...as a follow up to a previous post, my Petsmart doesn't carry crayfish. In fact, when I asked a lady that worked there, this is what happened:
Me: Do you have crayfish?
Her: No...what do they look like?
Me: Like mini-lobsters.
Her: Oh, well, no, but we have shrimp down there. [points]
I go down there...there are no shrimp. She was talking about hermit crabs.
TQC, do you have a story about extraordinary stupidity from store workers?
My birthday is soon. I do not find myself wanting anything, so I figure I'll ask for things I know I'll need. I live with roommates atm, so none of the appliances/etc are owned by me.
What are some basic things everyone needs when they start living by themselves?
Fuck it, what are some basic things everyone needs, period.
PS: I already have a rhinestone Hello Kitty vibrator, so I'll not be needing another.
I'm feeling very pack-ratty today...
I got only 4/10. :(
So, how would you/do you go about storing pots and pans without scratching them up?
Oh, and for added difficulty, I live in a rented apartment so I can't screw into the walls for a mounting board or rack.
I'm wanting to purchase my very first SLR this coming month.

Bless him, he's 18 and not very worldy, and I don't think he quite gets the innuendo attatched.
What do you think he thinks it means?
Anyways, I was thinking about signing up for the $8.99 per month deal where I can have only 1 DVD out, but unlimited times per month. How does this work if I want to rent, say, a TV DVD series? For example: The Office season one. Do they just send one disc at a time, or all 3-4 discs for the season?
Breakfast - Cocoa pebbles in fat free milk, 1.5 slices of pound cake.
Lunch - Crispy ranch snack wrap from McDonald's, 4 bagel bites, handful or so of cheddar soy chips
Mid afternoon snack - Double decker taco thing from Taco Bell
Dinner - Curly fries, sirloin steak melt, root beer from Jack in the Box

Do your parents (if they're still alive and you're in contact with them, i mean) remember your birthday?
How do they celebrate the occasion?
Do they still buy you presents for Christmas, and the like?
What about your siblings?
Yes, twice. A couple years ago I had to get a plantars wart cut out of my foot. Yeah, that was fun. I couldn't walk for days.
The other time, my 12 year old brother was driving us (my half-sister and I) around in the ( Collapse ). He made a really sharp turn and then said, "look at the wheels!" and did it again. That made it tip over on top of me (I was on the right). I ended up dislocating my elbow and had to get it popped back in place. I also broke a bone in my foot. They gave me this really awesome drug and I remember laughing a lot. It worked out great because it happened in May, and I got to stay home the rest of the year and got out of taking finals!
It's always right next to my bed and (of course) I clean my room and it vanishes! When i actually need it!
I have a little hive break out, due to stress (and a lot of it) between personal stuff and school starting tomorrow.
