1. Why do so many people believe that HIV/AIDS was created by the government, that the government created crack to make black people into addicts, 9/11 was caused by the government and other crazy conspiracy theories?

2. Why is it that a belief in an HIV/AIDS conspiracy results in substantially lower condom use?*

Surveys show that about 25% of Blacks, 20% of Latinos and 10% of Whites believe that a government conspiracy resulted in the creation of HIV/AIDS. I'm sure that if I looked up the surveys for the other conspiracy theories, they'd be alarmingly high, too.

*This is from this study, but it's not entirely clear from the abstract if they ruled out external factors, such as economic class, as causing the correlation.

So, TQC. I am needing some advice on what do to now.

Someone hit my car today, with their car, while I was at a film screening, so sometime between sunset and midnight. I was lucky that they left a note with a contact number on it. There's only damage to one panel, but it's still pretty distressing. I figured that by the time I got home it was too late to call them tonight, and I will call tomorrow morning. In in Australia, if that makes any difference to the law on this matter.

So. What do I do now? Should I call my insurance company and tell them? What do I say to this person when I call them tomorrow? (Aside from, obviously, thanking them for leaving contact details and not just driving off) What information do I need to get? How does this whole thing work?

Edit: I'm a little shaken, clearly use of the word "shock" gave some people the wrong impression.

The New School

 There is a university in NYC, located in Greenwich Village, called "The New School".  It seems to be marketed toward hipsters, and the cost of tuition is about $1,100 per credit hour.  Does anyone attend this university? What's it like?

So, I'm researching various and sundry things because I can't freakin' sleep. Again.

I keep running across this listed as symptoms to various conditions:

"Unrefreshing sleep (waking up feeling tired or not rested)."

Which is kind of how I would describe every morning of my life. I thought it was more or less normal.

1. Do you wake up feeling refreshed, tired, or just rested?

2. Are you a morning or a night person?

3. What do you do when you can't sleep?

You know those free re-entry passes the movie theatre gives to you when the movie you paid to see was having technical difficulties? Can you use those at any theatre of the same name, or are they only usable at the specific theatre you got them at? These are for AMC. The tickets don't say anything about where you can use them, only that they are unrestricted. So I assume you can use them at any location, but I just want to make sure.

I have a sweatshirt

I've had my favorite sweatshirt for a few years. Because I live in Arizona I only get to wear it for maybe 2 months out of the year. So the other 9 months it's stuck in the back of my closet. This year I pulled out my sweatshirt and it is incredibly musty. I've washed it a bunch of times but I can't get rid of the smell. It's still cold out (cause of global warming?) and I want to wear it but I don't want to stink. Help?

I'm looking towards going on holiday for a week sometime this year. It has to be within Europe though as I don't really have the funds to go elsewhere. Also, Greece is out because although I love it, I can't keep going back (I've been 4 times already) as there's so many more places I want to see.

So, where do you suggest?

I really do not want to end up in a tourist trap like Benidorm etc. I am mainly looking for somewhere with a lot of history & culture (pretty much most of Europe really) and an added benefit would be somewhere warm. I would love a few days spent on a beach.

Is there anywhere in Spain that is suitable?

Have you ever been in a situation where you should have felt a certain way (because most people, or society in general, would feel that way or expect it of you) but felt something entirely different?

Maybe you did something cruel or scandalous and didn't feel guilty. Or got into a relationship that might have looked abusive or fucked up to everyone else, but you didn't really care...

in line.

You go to the store with someone, you separate to find your goods, then you return to find them in a long line with a few people behind them.

Do you join your shopping partner at their place in line or do you get in the actual end of the line?

Do you find it awkward at all to be four people behind your shopping partner, like too far to talk, but close enough to notice each other?

If you were another patron in that line and you saw someone come up and join their shopping partner in front of you, would it bother you that they were cutting or would you not care because they were together at different points anyway?

I am finally moving out of the dorms for good this summer, and the one thing I've missed most living in them is having an animal.

At first, I was just going to go for the generic cat. But I've always wanted a ferret, and that's seeming more and more like what I want to go for. So my question(s) are for any ferret owners out there, or anyone who knows a lot about them.

What are the things you think someone should absolutely know before getting a ferret? How noisy are they? If I had only one, would it be lonely without another to play with? Do any of you know of any good ferret rescue organizations I could go through, especially around the Madison, WI area?

Thanks so much for any help you can give! I'd love to adopt a ferret or two, but I don't want to jump into it without knowing a whole lot about them.

Do you have any weird travel rituals?

Example: Whenever I go on vacation, I always buy a new lotion or chapstick flavor that I've never used before. I make an effort to use it throughout the trip so that when I come back home, the scent will always take me back to that time. To this day, Vaseline Waterproof Intensive Care reminds me of a cruise I took before and Blue Raspberry Chapstick reminds me of a vacation in 2001.

I lost about 25 pounds this year. Yay. The thing is, my breasts went down an entire cup size in the process. I'm having a hard time adjusting to the way they look now. I really miss having luscious hooters.

So my parents were married for 31 years until my dad walked out (for the third time) on Oct. 26th and they are now officially divorced. My mom bought a brand new house about 20 minutes away from our old house which is where I live. My mom is also 52 years old with one friend and has no life. I am 18 years old, working full time, going to college full time and have friends, a boyfriend, etc. Am I wrong in being pissed when my mom routinely bitches at me every Sunday for her sitting around the house all day? I should also add that my mom is too lazy to actually DO anything ie go to the mall or go to the movies, etc.

fourth grade short stories.

i teach my first reading lesson on wednesday.

i've been placed in a wonderful fourth grade class at an academic magnet school and i've been observing for the past three weeks. these kids are good creative writers, fluent readers, and make connections easily. behavior problems are close to nil. i love it.

for my lesson i'm doing an enrichment activity on story elements. i have a neat graphic organizer to use with them that my teacher loves. after we do a read aloud and work through the organizer as a group, i'd like to give them a short story to read and fill in the organizer by themselves.

my problem is: what are some short stories that are fourth grade appropriate? something that would take them 5 to 10 minutes to read. i am at a complete loss. even if you could point me to a specific author that would be on a 4th/5th grade level, i'd be eternally grateful.

But by "available on demand," does that mean parked out front or available to call?

I have trouble sleeping through the night.

I go to bed around 10:30pm-11pm most weeknights and wake up every morning, without fail, at about 4:21am. My alarm goes off at 6:15am, so if I do get back to sleep I always wake up feeling groggy and not well-rested after have been back asleep for 2 hours.

I've tried taking melatonin and valerian root, but both make me feel like a zombie in the morning and it takes a while to shake the feeling.

I moved in w/ my boyfriend last April, and I don't remember this being a consistent problem like it is now before that point. Also, in an attempt to sleep better, we got a latex mattress and a memory foam mattress topper - both are very comfortable, but haven't helped me sleep all the way through the night.

Any advice to help me sleep all the way from 10:30am to 6:15am without waking up at all?

it's 9:20pm right now, and it's due tomorrow at 1pm, but i kind of feel like making/eating a frozen pizza (i decided not to make it last night) right now instead, and i kind of want to watch a movie.

should i just get it over with now, or should i do pizza + movie first? i'm planning on pulling an all-nighter, fyi.

did you finish all your weekend assignments?
what are you doing tonight? (besides sleeping)
is anything fun happening tomorrow, or will it just be a regular blah monday for you?

Where do you go to watch movies online?

Edit 2: So, I apparently can't phrase things right. So, here's what I'm trying to ask. A couple of my friends & I were talking about watching movies online. Personally, I don't because I don't see the point. They do, so then they started to argue about what site was better. One is saying one thing & the other is saying another. So, what I meant by my question was that IF you watch movies online, what site do you prefer? Mainly as a general consensus so I can put my friends argument to rest. Like, "Hey we're not agreeing lets go ask ___ what she things to settle this!" kind of thing. I'm sorry if anyone thought I was asking for my own personal use, because I already know questions about downloading, etc are against the rules.

I have chronic indoor/outdoor allergies and have been taking Clariton 24 hour non drowsy which is over the counter for the past two years or so. Now that Zyrtec is available without a prescription, I was wondering if there's anyone here who has any testimonials to how effective it is compared to Clariton or alone? My biggest indoor allergy is pet dander which Zyrtec is supposed to help. I was also wondering if there's any testimonials from this community as to Zyrtec's effectiveness with pet dander allergies.

I can hear water trickling/running/whatever coming from my bathroom sink. It's definitely coming from the sink, nowhere else. I've never heard this before. The sink is definitely off. I'm not running water anywhere in the apartment.

a: Should I do anything about it?
b: Will this affect my water bill?

PS3 microphone

My puppy accidentally chewed through the cord on my PS3 Rock Band microphone. Unfortunately, for some stupid reason, you cannot yet buy the mic separately, and I don't want to wait until April. Will this work? It says it's for the PS2, but it also says it has a USB cable. Is there a PS3 version?

Does anyone have any other recommendations or suggestions? Thanks.

Today I took a nap. I dreamt about a man who went all around town gaffer taping pigeons. Like, he'd wrap gaffer tape around their legs and bodies, so they couldn't walk or fly. It was quite upsetting to see and I woke up feeling a bit distressed, and guilty for not helping the pigeons.

What's the weirdest dream you've had recently?

Females - do you sleep in your panties? According to my friends mom, girls need to go free at night and let their vaginas breathe.

I've always slept in my undies.....

I am having a really awkward conversation with an ex right now. He's all... 'oh you were so awesome for me' (and I totally wasn't, he's delusional), and I'm trying to be honest & say 'yeah, you sucked, I wasn't being me & I never really cared about the relationship'. I'm having a lot of 'umm... yeah... I need to go over ...here... now' moments.

What awkward things have you done lately?

What kind of bad relationships do you tend to have?
Clearly ones with clingy, socially awkward people.

If you got into a bet in which to win, you would have to eat and/or kill a beaver, would you do it?

What animal would you ABSOLUTELY NEVER eat, no matter how much money was on the line?
