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.

* I'm gathering up info for a study for a class and to use for a group project.
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.

My cousin left me a comment on myspace that suggested the concept of commenting was foreign and I was like, wait what? You're only seven years older than me, technology shouldn't be so far-fetched should it?
Or should I eat cereal and sit here until time to get ready and roleplay with my friends?

ETA2: I hope I'm making sense. This is why I don't ask a lot of questions.
Besides the big blockbusters and Oscar hopefuls, what movie would you recommend to watch?
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?

liannis I am looking at you... ;)

What irrational pet peeves do you have?

Why don't you do something about it?
~inspired by a stupid comment someone made in another community I read.
Do you recommend it?
Herd, herd, herd.
Cause those stupid kids don't know what they're doing, where they are going and would walk into the mouths of wolves if I didn't constantly fetch them in.
Because I am a bad Collie, I am neurotic, obsessive, and destructive and try to 'herd' everything from cats, to vacuum cleaners, to newborn babies.

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 want to get my boyfriend one for his birthday in two months and am not sure what would be a good one and not cost me a ridiculous amount. Know of any?

What is a piece of clothing you would describe as trashy?
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.

Does the bothering-you factor change based on who called whom?
I received a Canon PowerShot A560 digital camera from my parents for Christmas. I'm assuming it was bought during December. Last night the lens broke on it, it will not retract or expand all of the way, and the camera keeps flashing 'lens error, please restart camera'. Will I be able to exchange this camera, or am I shit out of luck? I have the box, and all of the items that came with it.
Watching Project Runway and cleaning the house.

Cape Cod Salt and Vinegar!!!
10. Favorite ride at the fair?
I love the Zipper! Swings would be a close second.
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.

So could you explain it to me please?
Don't tell me, I already know I'm thick for having to ask!
What could I drink whiskey with? Do I drink whiskey with something?
I have a bottle of cheap whiskey and a bottle of tequila that is a not so good one, acording to my friend. I wouldn't really know as I've not had a whole lot of tequila, especially after The Tequila Incident where a friend and I finished of a bottle of tequila and I spent the rest of the night barfing it up. ( I say barf instead of puke because of the noises I was making were kind of that noise and was causeing my friend to fall on the floor laughing.)

2. is it wrong to fantasize about other people during sex?
You don't have to work, go to school, take care of family, whatever. Although, if that's what you want to do, then say that.
ie, do you think it's people who ask stupid questions, when people ask questions that break the rules, something else...
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.

ETA: I'm landing at FLL (Hollywood Int'l Airport in Fort Lauderdale) and need to get to Port Everglades. The website states, "Yellow Cab taxis are available on demand around the clock at the Airport. Please check in at the Transportation Podium located outside the baggage area on the lower level at the curb of each terminal."
But by "available on demand," does that mean parked out front or available to call?
For example, I'm disabled but my friends refer to me as "the cripple" and we all make cripple jokes when I'm around. Maybe it should be offensive, but 99% of the time I think it's damned funny.
So, you? ;)
Women, what do you think about manscaping? Do you like you guys to manscape? And if so, how much?
- should i add it to my ramen or no?
- what do you like to put in your ramen or what have you tried?
i once tried to make a poor man's version of peanut sauce to eat with my ramen (i just mixed peanut butter with some water). it was disgusting. :(
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?

3)should I go to starbucks and get an expensive drink tomorrow or should I save my money?

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'm tired, bored and want to see some hot guys.
Anyone have some pictures they want to share?
a: Should I do anything about it?
