Oh woe.

So 14 of my relatives who live in Ireland are visiting Orlando. I live in the Tampa area and plan on going there to visit with them. The only problem is that my father will be there too. I haven't seen nor spoken to my father since October 2005. A ton of shit happened and it ended in him basically throwing a vacuum at me and me calling the cops. The last I heard from him was that he had hoped I would have died when I totaled my car a month later. Now I feel as though I should try and talk to him again, but there is no way that I'm going to apologize to him. And I'm fairly certain he won't be anxious to say sorry either. We're both very stubborn people, to a fault.

Anyway on to the question: How do you act like an adult and say sorry when you don't really feel that you were wrong?

When was the last time you had to make amends with someone?

Do you hold grudges?

My cat is sleeping inside my purse. How cute is that?

Have you ever just stopped liking someone?

I have a friend that I'm just not liking anymore. It could be that she's totally fucking another friend of ours over, but mainly she hasn't changed, I'm just realising she's a giant skankadelic toolbag.

Assume you're with your male significant other.

1.  If you saw a man pissing in his car (while standing outside of the car), who then proceeded to wave his erect, pissing dick at you, from about 10-15 feet away, what would your significant other be most like to do?

2.  What would you WANT the significant other to do?

What the hell?

Ok, I am confused. I have a few shows on my TiVo that have been saved until i deleted. I went through this afternoon, knowing that I would have time to watch them tonight. I go to watch the three House episodes that i had saved, and all but one are there. They are not in the deleted list, they are just....gone. They were there earlier, as in two hours ago, and now they have vanished. Is my TiVo possessed? Did the episodes just vanish? I know i can download them, but I have to send my laptop in to be fixed in the next few days, so not an option.

Any thoughts? Everything else is there, they are not in the deleted things, and this is just odd. Help! I just want to know if I need a new TiVo!?!

Freezing yourself to time travel into the future.

Assume that cryogenic technology is advanced enough to safely unfreeze a person very far into the future (currently you wouldn't be able to recover anyone at all).

How far into the future would you want to 'time travel' using this cryogenic technology?


1. Iff other people you know agree to it, they can be frozen just as long as you are.

2. You get only ONE chance to use it, so you can't go back in after being unfrozen.

3. You can only specify a time period for unfreezing, NOT a condition of the world under which you'd be unfrozen.

1. How do you go to sleep at night? With a light, or in total darkness? With music, or silence? TV on, or off?
I use a sleep mask, so total darkness. I like to listen to SIRIUS Symphony Hall to go to sleep, and I get that on Dish Network, so TV on.

2. If you use a sleep mask, what does it look like?
Mine is a blue and green patterned thing I'm using until I get my Holly Golightly sleep mask.

3. What time is usually bedtime, if you have one, and when it's left up to you, how long do you normally sleep?
I would like to get a normal bedtime down of about 11 pm, but usually I'm up until 2 am, at least. I would probably sleep about 10 hours before I crossed the "too much sleep, will be tired all day now" threshold.

4. What sleeps with you? Pillows? People? Pets?
Pillows. In Goldilocks fashion, two homemade ones that are just right, and a Pooh Bear pillow pal that I've had for years.

5. Do you dream and actually remember them? What do you dream about? Anything recurring?
Rarely do I remember my dreams. Sometimes I do, but they're either really fucking weird or like a rom-com. Nothing recurring, but I do go to a lot of concerts in my dreams, haha.

Tonight I saw one of our regular homeless guys scrounging for half-smoked cigarette butts in the rain (ew). Sad! I felt so badly for him, I bought him a pack of of cigarettes. He seemed grateful but now I'm wondering, would he have been better off with the 7 bucks?

1. When was the last time you felt so pleased with yourself?

I touched my hair which has somehow become silky in the last two days (I dyed it deepest of purples and now it's laying like a silky little hankie on my scalp, whereas previously it felt so ghetto and disgusting) and I felt like I'd triumphed over everything.

Also when I was on the toilet and peeked down and this really beautiful stream of bloody mucus was suspended out of my cooter and forming tiny patterns in the water. I thought, "Wow. I did that!"

2. Why did my buffalo wings come with a non-crispy skin that's about half an inch thick and the texture of rubber?

The inside is all cooked and tasty but I've never experienced chicken skin that thick (and disgusting) in my life.

2. How are you today?

3. Do you have pets? Are they your babies, or do they just happen to live in the same house as you? Do you have a favorite? Don't pretend like you don't. Pics?

Strep Throat, it kills

Alright, Doctor TQC...

Can a person get strep throat a week after having strep throat? Or is it still the same strep that hasn't gone away?

I had strep throat last week, took two whole days off work to sleep (and started a 10 day amoxicillin treatment), and now I think I have strep again.

Is it too early in the morning for an academic question?

EDIT: Ok guys, you only have yourselves to blame for this:

What do you think of libertarian paternalism?

The wiki article on it is kind of crappy. Basically the idea is that you can't avoid influencing people's choices (something as simple as the order in which you present options has a pretty substantial effect on what option is chosen) so you might as well influence them in a manner that is beneficial to the person/society. So instead of an opt-in policy for organ donation you should have an opt-out one, in a cafeteria you should put the fruit before the dessert (or the dessert in a separate room entirely).

SO, I found this report just now about a murder that happened several months ago.
I know the sister, Becky, mentioned in the story b/c she's one of my SIL's best friends. It's creeping me out quite a bit.

This is the second highly-publicized murder where I knew someone involved, the first being when a coworker on the office tennis team with me was murdered by someone in another department b/c they were bothing having an affair with one of my supervisors. Then the murderer tried to kill her husband and my friend was working in the emergency room at the hospital when the husband was brought in.

Anyone else here ever find themselves connected to shocking news stories? How does that make you feel?

What movies do you recommend that have best friends falling in love with each other? (Both of them falling for each other, not one like in My Best Friend's Wedding... but they don't have to fall for each other at the same time, it can be unrequited for a long time)
edit: It doesn't have to be the whole premise of the movie, but their relationship together does have to end happily.

lying liars and the lies they tell... but why?

I keep noticing random, pointless little lies that people tell that ends up getting them into more trouble than it saves. For example... a friend's car is in the shop, the guy who offered to loan the money for the repairs asked if she was going to be busy over the weekend, so she invented a trip out of town. The guy? Instead of paying the car tomorrow when its done, decided he's going to wait until she's "Back from her trip" so now she has to find a reason to not go on her 'trip' so she can get the car back before the weekend.

Other things, I dunno. My ex used to tell stupid stupid pointless lies. About everything, but he was compulsive. He could be standing next to the overflowing garbage and insist he's already taken it out... or holding the eviction notice and swearing he paid rent... right up until he opened his wallet and oh look, there's the money order, all dusty from sitting there for weeks when he was too lazy to go drop it off...

So. Lies, what silly, strange, or pointless ones do you tell?
Any interesting ones? Funny ones?
What unforseen complications have you caused by them?

Stories acceptable also from witnesses, or the lie-ee (Thats not a word is it, the person that got lied to.)

I sometimes catch myself lying about silly little things, like what I had for dinner. The wrong thing slips out by accident and then I'm like "What? Why did I say that? Is mcdonalds faux pas now? ah well...."

Mostly I just exaggerate things to make 'em sound more interesting. Its in the details, y'know.

 I just found out I have to write my own performance evaluation at work. I've worked here for over 2 years and have had 2 other reviews, both of which my manager did. Not this year, and not in this group apparently. I've also worked at other companies where I didn't have to write my own (and some of those managers were dumb as rocks). I think this makes the whole process look like a joke. So my question is, what should I write?

Also, have you ever had to write your own evaluation?

This isn't a self-evaluation. We have a screen where we write down our accomplishments and goals and such. The one I'm talking about is the actual evaluation. The manager doesn't do one. Well, they're supposed to...they just....don't.

Do YOU have what it takes to be a licensed physician?

This is a real question from one of my medical licensing exam practice tests. I thought you all might enjoy it:

A 24-year-old woman comes to see her male physician complaining of pain and stiffness in the left lower quadrant of her back. During the physical examination to locate the extent and severity of the pain she says, "Wow, you've got great hands, Doc. Just having you touch me helps me feel better." As the patient is getting dressed, she asks the physician if he is married, and then asks if he ever dates his patients. The physician is unmarried, is attracted to the woman, and would like to see her socially. At this point his best action would be to do which of the following?

A. Begin to see the patient socially as long as she understands that it must be kept separate from the medical relationship.

B. Explain that as long as she is his patient, no social relationship is possible.

C. Have the patient sign a liability waiver and begin to see her socially.

D. Refer the patient to a colleague and begin to see her socially.

E. Refer the patient to a colleague and refuse to see her socially.

F. Refer the patient to a colleague, wait six months, and then begin to see her socially.

G. Tell the patient that he will not pursue any social relationship with her, but that he would like to continue to be her physician.

[by the way, only 59% of the med students who took this test got this question right]

ETA: the answer.

How does one just stop caring about their dog?

There's a chocolate lab that lives down my street a ways, and down the next side street. He loves to swim and comes to our area via the creek-he'll swim up the creek and go play in the bay/boat launch hear our house. He gets out regularly-so much so that he knows our neighbor's house because sometimes they'll take him in and feed him. He's (the neighbor, not the dog) has brought him home a few times and they've pretty much stopped coming to the door even-at one point they said they didn't care if he took the dog but at the time he couldn't. The dog doesn't starve, he apparently will go back home and they obviously feed him, he knows how to sit, stay, lie down, and shake so clearly they took the time to train him but now they're just like 'we don't care' and let him wander all over, don't thank people for bringing him back etc. I think I found their house (he has no tags) so I'm going to call them and ask if they'd mind if the neighbor took him or if I gave it to the shelter I work at.

Which do you choose?

You're on a trip to a foreign country. In this country, there's genocide going on, along with an uprise against the government (reminiscent of Pol Pot's reign). As you're walking through the city or whatever you may be doing, you're captured by soldiers working for the government. They take you back to a camp to be executed. Before being executed, they separate you and other prisoners and have you alone in a cell (as a form of torture/to make your nerves get to you). Three possible scenarios can come out of this:

1. You're told that you'll be executed. They give you one last meal and give you a chance to say your last words. What is your last meal? What are your last words?

2. You're told that you'll be executed. Since then, you've thought about how to get out. Alive. You either need to overpower them or outsmart them. Which do you do? How do you do it? Keep in mind that you cannot communicate with any fellow prisoners, as you're in a cell by yourself, and you don't have any weapons unless you can manage to make some from what you find on the ground or take the soldier's weapons.

3. You're given a choice. You can either side with the government or be executed. If you side with the government, you'll be forced to kill prisoners, possibly including anyone who was with you when you were captured. But, if you side with the government, you'll be kept safe from harm. Which do you choose?

Does anyone remember the SNES Mario game that had Yoshi in it?  What was it called?  I can't remember for the life of me and I really want to play it again.

EDIT:  You guys rock!  Thanks!  :-D

It is 5pm, and according to the HP website, they have not shipped my laptop back to me yet. According to the info provided by tech support, I will get it back tomorrow. I have looked for additional info, and there is none. No email, and if I call, they tell me the same thing.

What are the odds I will get it back tomorrow?

How many computers do you have in your household? How many people live in your household? Are they all connected to the internet?

I have three, two desktops and one laptop. I just connected the laptop to the wireless, so now there are three internet computers--for TWO people! I'm sitting literaly three feet away from my desk on the couch with the laptop. I feel sort of lazy and very spoiled.

Have you had your wisdom teeth taken out? (I had mine out yesterday :-/)

Is so, how long were you numb? (My lower left jaw and the left half of my tongue are still numb, I fear nerve damage.)

When did you start eating things other than liquid or soft food? (so far I've had cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, vanilla yogurt, split pea soup, and a little vanilla ice cream.)

How do blind or visually impaired musicians "sight read"? Is there a system in braille for reading music, or do they just learn music by ear?
