Did this freak you out or surprise you?

Pesos to dollars

I was going through an old coin collection and found one of these coins, which appears to be 100 pesos.

Per google, 100 pesos = $9.30 USD. This coin dates back to the 80's and is phased out, but can I take it to a bank and have it exchanged for USD? And, if so, why are these coins selling for under a $1 on ebay?

 What should I do for my 21st birthday?

I'm one of those people that LOVE birthdays, but I can't think of anything 1) great 2) cheap 3) I haven't already done.

I'm just looking for fun themes, random ideas (like bowling, but not bowling) fun places to go (that aren't bars, most of my friends are poor) or any other idea you care to share with me.

If there is two boys and two girls one girl and one boy is a couple and the other two are single and they go out bowling and they go out to the mall all together and are always out together that is a group date right?

I don't smoke but a bunch of my friends do. Rather than be antisocial, I stand outside with them.
Tonight, while they bought cigs, I bought a cup of hot coffee and zipped it up in my coat. It kept me warm for the duration. I threw it out on the way in.

What's the weirdest thing you've done to keep warm?

1.

Someone in a community for natural products and such asked what my dream trail mix would be and I wanted to say MY DREAM TRAIL MIX WOULD BE CHOPPED GREASY FATTY BEEF AND FAKE CHEESE AND STINKY ONIONS ON A HUGE FUCKING ROLL THAT'S BEEN FRIED IN LARD just because that's what I was craving but then I realized where the question was from and could not do it.

1. am i wrong to think she's a bitch for being angry with me and calling me a bullshitter because i had a prearranged plan with my future inlaws that i didn't want to skip cause it was with my boyfriends very rich, very important, very judgemental father who i want to think i am good enough for his son?
2. am i being a snob for picking him over her?
3. am i a snob because any day i would pick him over her, and not because he is my boyfriend but because when we hang out i don't have the strong urge to punch him in the face?
4. am i wrong for staying in the friendship mainly because she owes me a whole bunch of money because i saved her cat THREE TIMES and paid for the bill even when it was at big cost to me (in total she owed me about 2,500 dollars)?
5. how do i tell her i am mainly sticking around for the payback of cash?
6. should i just end the friendship early and say oh well on ever getting the cash back?
7. how can i tell her i am not her flippin taxi and that gas is 3.79 a gallon here and that her little 10 dollars doesn't pay for me picking her up from her house, getting her to college, getting her the therapy, and getting her back home?? not to mention the meal i got her in between all that?
8. am i being over sensitive?

Okay, so my cat is dropping stink bombs bad enough to raise the color on the Terrorism Alert Color Bar and it's getting old. I scoop every day and replace the litter every week and it's still just... bad. The litter itself is fine, but what she's dropping really isn't. I bought iams which was apparently a bad move... not only is the smell a problem but she acts like it often doesn't sit well in her stomach, so...

What food do y'all recommend I buy for her that would help her apparent digestive issues?

Creepy y/n?

So, back story: Maggie is my future sister-in-law. She's never really warmed up to me in the 3 1/2 years I've been dating her brother, Ian. She's gotten better lately, having gone from completely rude to mostly pleasant in a "we're awkward acquaintances" way.   Anyway, as a good will sort of "hey, I like you, I'm marrying your brother, plz chillax, lets be friends" gift, I was thinking of getting her this locket  . Is a locket a creepy/weird gift for an icy [future] sister-in-law? I wouldn't like, pre-fill it with pictures or anything.  I want to give her something handmade and thoughtful, and I know she'd love the locket. I'm just having issues figuring out whether it's appropriate. Danke!

EDIT: I went ahead and bought it. I'll probably give it to her on Easter. Thanks, everyone!

Do you think there's a correlation between religious fervor and susceptibility to addiction? I keep hearing about people who become passionately religious after kicking some chemical habit. On the other hand, virtually all my non-religious friends are quite temperate. I know there are certainly exceptions, but can anyone else see a trend either way?

There's a strange girl upstairs in my brothers room. My brother's at work, so he's left this chick on her own and I don't know when she's leaving. I've offered her a cup of tea and she declined, is it alright to just leave her to her own devices now?
It must be weird sitting alone upstairs in a strange house with a complete stranger downstairs (which would be me) but I don't know if it'd be weirder if that stranger kept appearing and asking questions....

It's currently 10.47 am. I'm thinking of cooking some chips, chicken and parsnips in a minute. Is this too much for so early in the day? Will I explode?

What time is it where you are?

A good friend is trying to set me up with a guy she works with. I've seen a picture and I'm not impressed (I'm quite picky), should I go along with it or decline and go about finding my own boyfriend? 
Added difficulty: I've been single for the past 7 years, so obviously I'm not very good at that sort of thing.

Bad Boys/Girls vs. Nice Guys/Girls

Every so often I ponder the phenomena of the Assholes/Bastards/Bad Boys vs. the Nice Guys... mostly because I'm trying to explain to one of my male friends, or trying to understand my own tendancy to go with the former rather than the latter. However, every time it comes up I find different reasonings. (Someday i'll dig through my journals and compile a list of all the things I've written on the matter, hah)

So I pose the question, Ladies and also Gentlemen

More current events...

A woman has filed a $200,000 lawsuit against American Airlines alleging the flight crew failed to protect her from a passenger who moved into the seat next to hers while she was sleeping, then "masturbated to her" and—well, you've seen "There's Something About Mary"? Yeah, that.

The woman slept most of the flight, but awoke about 20 minutes before landing when the pilot announced the plane was on descent into Los Angeles. When the woman opened her eyes, she saw that an unknown man had moved into the seat next to her and was staring at her as he masturbated, the suit states.
The woman turned toward the window in embarrassment and in an act of nervousness began to run her fingers through her hair where she noticed "a substantial amount of an extremely sticky substance in her hair," the suit states.

The woman began to cry and tried to get the attention of a flight attendant, but was unsuccessful, the suit states. Finally a passenger in the row in front of the woman comforted her and verified the semen in her hair, the suit states.

When the plane landed, employee called airport police and the man was arrested.

The suit claims that during the police investigation, the flight crew acknowledged they saw the man move from his assigned seat to the seat next to the woman while she slept.

Do you think the suit has merit?
What would you do if you awoke on a plane and a man had just ejaculated on you?

One day you're walking home alone at night, when you're cornerred by a vampire. He says,

"Look, by the clan rules, I have to turn 2 people per year into vampires as part of my membership duties. 2 people to counteract the average number of vampires who get staked or get caught in the sunlight, so the vampire population is always at a certain number. The vampiric year ends in one hour and I'm 1 person short of my quota. I'm making you an offer to join us.

If you decide to become a vampire, you'll have eternal life, providing that no external harm ends it prematurely. You know the vampire legends. So, eternal life, and you'll never age beyond the year you are now. You'll have amazing superhuman strength and speed, and you'll be immune to poison, disease and normal physical injury. You'll be able to mesmerize/hypnotize people at will, and can change shape. You'll also have supernatural charm, which you can use to recruit your own harem of loyal servants. You can turn 2 people into vampires per year, but they cannot be related to you. You'll have superhuman senses.

The downside of being a vampire that you cannot step foot into sunlight again. You can no longer eat or even keep down normal food, for blood will be the only nourishment you can subsist on. You'll not only get used to it, but you'll crave it eventually. You must feed on the living, preferably human. You don't have to kill them, but you will need a pint or two. You can keep a loyal stable who will willingly feed you. You'll outlive everyone you know and love, barring those you've turned. Because you will no longer be among the living, you will cast no reflection. Your lungs no longer have need of breath, and smoking of any kind is pointless. Your heart does not beat, your veins do not transfer blood, and thus, you will be unable to circulate blood to your nether regions, meaning that sex will be impossible (if you're male) or painful and ineffectual (if you're female) from this point on. And, lastly, there are humans out there who believe we are evil, and they seek to slay us all, so you'll have to be covert and probably train your servants well to protect you.

So, what's it going to be?

Yes, make me a vampire
No, I do not want to be a vampire

What cheap but still tasty and filling foods should we bring with us so that we do not starve and/or get poor?

What other things should I not forget to take?

I've been really into fragrances lately. Not perfume but essential oils and the like.

What are your favorite singular notes? I like neroli, black pepper, vetiver, bergamot, cedar, citrus and frankincense. I hate hate hate hate hate HATE patchouli.

Do you have any favorite blends?

Do you know of any websites that have recipes for blending essential oils?

I got my tax return today. It's 138$! Where's the 300 I was promised by the Man?  Okay, so that's the rebate and it isn't coming until May. I guess I need to go learn about tax stuff besides just filing it.

Besides getting a job (I have one, searching for another), what are some (realistic!!!) ways to make and save money quickly?  The only bill I have to pay right now is my phone, so aside from that I'm not spending another cent until I pay for the program.

My dog has terrible acne!  We have special shampoo for him, and we follow the skin care isntructions just like the book says, but he has crazy pimples!  Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

Is there anyone in your life (or out of your life) who you can't help but act irrationally towards?

For me, it's my ex-girlfriend. We had a really long weird break-up where we just got more and more off-kilter with each other, and we ended up as nearly Manichean opposites. Even today, if I happen to think of her, I get a weird little emotional seizure and want to do stupid things like e-mail her just to argue with her.

Poll #1156522 A Farewell to Arms

OH NOEZ! While feeding the ducks at the park, one of them bit off and swallowed your dominant hand (the one you write with). You're left with a stump. They can probably give you a prosthetic, but you probably won't attain the dexterity of a real hand and will probably be forced to use your off-hand as your new dominant hand. What activities can you perform adequately with your lesser hand? You may have to experiment to see if you really can do these activities

Brush teeth
Use fork/spoon
Use scissors
Use knife (for meals)
Wipe butt
Brush hair
Put in contacts
Shave face/legs
Button clothes
Use keys (to open doors. Odds are, you probably never used your off-hand for this)
Use manual can opener
Snap fingers
I'm ambidextrous, bitch

Woo, putting off homework!

Obviously using SparkNotes instead of actually doing one's reading assignment is frowned upon in most circles, but would you/have you ever used the site to help you write a paper or to get a better grasp on a book?

Have you ever heard of SparkNotes?

Have you ever completely not read a book, and relied entirely on a website/Cliff's Notes or the movie for information? How'd that turn out?

So I was going to get a tattoo today, but couldn't. The first place was closed because they're all hung over from their party yesterday (which is why I couldn't do it yesterday), and the other place didn't have enough time to do a quality job. Now I have to wait till after spring break to get it done. I'm pissed!!! So....

1. Have you been thwarted recently?
2. What happened?
3. What should I do with myself now? I was expecting to be getting tattooed, now I'm bored and pissed.

What's the point of decaf coffee?
Yes, might be a stupid question, but I live in a country where it isn't even available. Telling someone I drink my coffee decaf would produce a lot of WTF faces and people would think I'm some kind of weirdo.

TQC, I can't come up with a suitable way to describe how bad and terrible and scummy it is that my friend is lying to me about a guy raping her. I've been good friends with this guy for a long time (and we actually just started dating.. could this be related!?), and I can't stand that she'd try to ruin such a nice person just because he didn't call her after a mutually drunken hook up. I don't accept crying "wolf" with rape. It's lower than low.

She's blatantly lying to my face about this. She never said it was rape until I started dating him, and I'm assuming she's just forgotten that she has told me in the past (before I got close to him) that it was (more than) consensual. Provided details that would definitely imply it could not be rape, in fact.

So how would you express to this girl how you feel, TQC? What descriptive words would you use to explain how scummy this is? Because alone, low and scummy don't quite do enough to get my anger across.
