so why did some person call up at 7:30 pm tonight, asking to speak to the dj, so that they could do some advertising for their restaurant that was opening this weekend?
really - are people that fucking stupid that they assume:
1) we are going to give them advertising for free?
2) that advertising that weekend, the weekend they opened, was going to give them results?
3) that it would have done them absolutely no good to advertise where they were, what they were, or when they were opening, BEFORE the weekend they opened?

That is, their lack of intelligence causes them to often be annoying, because they try to defend stupid propositions as if they were a reasonably intelligent person.
EDIT: 2. Is there a semi-polite way of telling such a person that they aren't that bright so that they don't remain so oblivious to their own stupidity?
I realize that this is probably asking a lot. If there was a good solution, then maybe we could prevent the stupids from running rampant in society.
3. FICTION RECOMMENDATIONS. What good utopian/dystopian works of fiction (not necessarily books) are there that concern a society with a class system based on intelligence?

What is a good website for cute kitchenware?
So my moms driving me nuts. Instead of getting my tits fixed if this job pulls through, I'm thinking of moving out. I've got a sweet TV, DVD player and bedroom furniture. That leaves a few loose ends to tie up furniture wise. I'm going to have to go to the Dallas metroplex regardless because my town is so limited. I don't want an Ikea sofa. All I'll really need in the long run I think is a sofa, coffee table and TV stand. A small kitchen table and replacement desk can wait for a while. I'll be wrangling up all of my own furniture because either I live alone or I don't move out at all. I'd feel inclined to slaughter a roommate I'm sure.
Again, NO IKEA.

At my job (retail), we're allowed to play whatever music we want in the store. Thing is, our stereo that hooks up to the ceiling's speakers only has a CD player- no place for an input cable, and no cassette player.
Any ideas how I can play music via Zune over the speakers? If it's complicated, I'll just burn some CDs... I just really rather not.

If you could pick a band to do a cover song, which band and what song?
Personally, I loved Disturbed's version of Genesis' " Land of Confusion". And I don't like Disturbed. At all. But I love me the Genesis and Phil Collins and have to admit they did a good job.
I hate Alien Ant Farm's version of "Smooth Criminal" simply because it came out when I was in middle school and I got SO MUCH SHIT. My name is Annie. Everyone thought it was just the most hilarious thing in the world to ask me if I was okay. Harumph.
I would like to hear Dragonforce cover John Denver's " Annie's Song". I love that song, I love Dragonforce, and because of my name. I would shit kittens and rainbows if they covered that song.

What famous people do you get mixed up from time to time?
What do you do when you care about a friend, but she just makes horrible choices for herself?
Well, *my* interpretation of horrible. It's primarily centered on her boyfriend, who is just... a moron and a jerk. He's racist (She's latino, and he referred to their baby as "half a spic"), he gave her an STD, he slapped her around when she was nine months pregnant.. etc. She had me come to their apartment after having a huge fight while she was pregnant (As soon as I got there I saw huge hole they'd made in the wall), and she sobbed, saying that she didn't want him anywhere near the baby, she didn't trust him, she hated him, etc. But a month later she says "We're going to marriage counseling." The baby is named after him, she just put all of these pictures of him up on her Myspace..
I'm trying to be supportive, but it is really aggravating me that she's putting up with this. Should I just shut up and be friends with her, but not hang around him (which I already do, but since she had the baby, they're always together)? I think she's afraid that she can't provide for the baby on her own, and it's just easier to stay with him.. but MARRIAGE??
Or am I just overreacting? How long does it take a person to change?
noones ever seen me with it on, so should i surprise them all ?

What was your most ingenious hide and seek spot where no one ever found you?
If you were to play hide and seek right now (limit it to the building/immediate area you are in), where would you hide?
Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her. The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter? He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king, “If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured.” The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan.
The next day, he held a competition. Any man who could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king’s wealth.
Three young princes took the challenge.
The first brought a sword of the finest steel. But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted. The prince went away sadly.
The second prince brought diamonds. He thought diamonds were the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess touched them, they melted. He too was sent away disappointed.
The third prince approached. He told the princess, “Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there.” The princess did as she was told, though she turned red. She felt something hard. She held it in her hand.
And it did not melt!!!
The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed! And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.
What was in the prince’s pants?

I absolutely cannot stand the word "folks". Whether someone is referring to their parents as "my folks" or using it in the generic sense as a substitute for a perfectly good word like "people", it makes me want to slap anyone who says it.
what are some bible stories where someone breaks rules? like, how eve ate the apple when she wasn't allowed to... stuff like that..
This is confusing the fuck out me.
Under perfect usage, they are about 98% effective (source).
Unless I've greatly misunderstood things, perfect usage means that a given condom is used once, hasn't been torn/ripped, the right size was used, and was properly put on. In testing, condoms are filled with 1+ liters of water and stand up to the pressure just fine without leaking.
EDIT: The only thing that makes sense here is that 'perfect use' only refers to humans doing their part correctly, but the condom not being manufactured quite right and breaking. Is this correct? It's not entirely clear what the definition of 'perfect use' is.
Perfect use = humans doing their part correctly, ignoring manufacturing failures.
The statistics are for 1-year failure rates.
Microtears are not a significant factor, like I suspected.
I have two teeth with exposed nerves, and need them extracted. One has a temporary filling that kinda helps, but not really. I've had two attempts with my regular dentist, but she can't numb the area enough to do it, so I need dental surgery that costs more than my partner makes in a month, so we need to save our asses off before I can get it done. I've been combining paracetamol and ibuprofen, but really hate take painkillers for extended periods. If there's something I can do *before* resorting to drugs or a hammer, I'd love to know. Help?

b. How the hell do you find these things? (I'm looking in online search engines from my university, but I generally haven't been getting any results, maybe because internships are mostly unpaid, or because I want one in a particular city?)

d. ... What the hell do I even need an internship for if I'm not looking to work for any sort of company in the long-term? I want to move up from a fast-food job this summer and people have been telling me that I should get internships because they'll sound good later. But it seems kind of pointless. I just want cash and some experience, but I'm not looking for future job offers. Should I even bother?

What are some strange interview-like questions I can ask that will get them to go away quickly?
Edit: The reason I ask is because I gave 5 interviews today. One was impressive, two were decent, one was just okay, and one made me want to pull my own hair out.
When I asked the kid "Why should I hire you? What makes you a good employee?", he stared at his shoes for at least 28 seconds, and then responded, "I thought about that question before I came here...and I really don't have an answer for that."
