UGH nevermind! i tried to put down what was in my mind in words, and it didn't work. so new questions for those baffled by the first:

1. do you sleep naked?
2. how much do you recycle? do you throw away things you know can be recycled? can you recycle in your town/city?
3. how confusing was my first question?

You and your SO have been going out for a few months, but you don't love one another (and you are both very careful with the use of that word and know what love feels like). You started out going out because you were both in a similar situation, and originally relied on one another as friends, but it grew to a committed relationship (not love). Things are very stable, but one day you are both faced with the prospect of falling in love with OTHER people.

Assuming the stability will last, and considering the highs and lows and potential uncertainty of love, would you leave the stability of this relationship (which is likely to last a long time), in preference for the potentially unstable emotion of love, knowing that love can change and ruin the relationship, but the stability has other qualities at work that keep the relationship together, that likely will not change.

Assuming both aren't possible at once, and assuming the same feelings are returned, would you rather:
1. a fully emotional love with another person (the kind that makes you do crazy things and fills you with this unsmashable sense of hope, brings you back to life etc...etc...)
2. or a more stable like based on common similarities/circumstances (ex, you and this person grew up together, you and this person are in the same circumstance where you don't emotionally love one another, but care for one another greatly, and trust one another fully etc...etc...).

Would you choose not to let yourself 'fall in love' (if you can help it) with this other person in preference of the stability you have with your current SO?

Why? Is the first kind of love worth sacrificing in place of a more stable, but perhaps less 'emotionally high' feeling of like? Would you feel empty without that crazy love high?
Yeah..I made it..delete it if you want.

i need children's books (fiction or non-fiction) about music and musicians. do you know of any?

edit: i'm teaching a reading unit next month to fourth graders. they are accelerated students, and our story deals with music and the way people use it to express themselves. i'm particularly looking for recommendations on picture books or nonfiction/resource chapter books on music and musicians (possibly music as a career?)... but really, if they can read the book in 10-15 minutes, that's perfect.

i do intend to go to my local library later this week, but if there is something particularly fabulous i should include that they don't have, i need time to either initiate an interlibrary loan or order it online.

"So... you single?"

All of the people I've dated have been part of my social circle, so I've never had to deal with that phase of being interested in getting to know someone you're attracted to. So now that I have a regular customer who comes into my work and is kinda flirty, I have no idea how to approach the subject.

Is there any subtle or casual way to ask whether someone is single and interested?

Is there a way to ask if they'd be interested in hanging out that doesn't sound like its just a hook up?

How do you let someone know you're interested in spending some time with them to see if you could become friends, or possibly more?

I dunno, I'm just afraid I'll sound stupid or something, lol... but I'm trying to break out of my comfort zone and this guy seems like he'd be interesting to have as a friend, even if it doesn't go anywhere else.

Someone just asked if we stopped ourselves from asking questions because they might cause a stir...I'm not stopping!

Okay so I read a book awhile back where every single person on Earth was sterilized at birth. This was a reversible thing, but insured people who didn't want to have kids wouldn't have them until they applied for reversal later in life. I think there was a complicated thing about buying "baby credits" (for the number of kids you could have) and be financially stable and all this other jazz.

But if such a thing as sterilizing every single person when they were born and having it be a process that could be reversed later in life, would you support it's happening? Why or why not?

my boyfriend and i are getting an apartment soonish. thing is, he won't move further than middleport, which is 20 minutes away from work or his parents/family. this would put me 30 minutes from my parents, 40 minutes from school/possible job, and more than an hour from the rest of my family. i personally want to move to medina, which is closer to here what i need, and i'd only be like 25-30 minutes from school, and about 20 from my parents. last night he kept saying that medina was too far and he didn't want to move there EVEN THOUGH it's a bigger town (ie, there are actually things there and also THEY HAVE A GROCERY STORE).

what would you do in this situation? also, there's apparently a chance we might need to move out like NOW. ugh.

eta: he's not THAT concerned about his family. he's mostly concerned about how far away from work he is. i'm most concerned about work/school, but i'm also concerned about my family because i love them and i want to be able to visit them regularly.

Snowboarding

So I went snowboarding about a month ago for the first time.  I was smooth sailing down the intermediate hill and POW out of nowhere, I face planted.  I saved my face with my wrists.  I didn't know there was a problem at first except that evening I realized they were sore.  Then for a couple of days they were swollen.  I figured I just sprained them or something.  But now that a month has passed, I can't lift anything over a few pounds or my wrists will give out.

My question TQC is whether any of you have hurt your wrists from falling on your face snowboarding?  Have you sprained your wrists, how long did it take to heal? 

(Side note is that I don't have insurance and am dirt poor so I can't afford to go to the doctor to have it looked at but I wear a brace on my right wrist since its the one that bothers me the most, about 4 days a week)

help! ankle injury!

 So I fell down some steps at the movie theater where I work the other day while checking a movie in the dark. I thought that I had made it to the landing but I actually had 2 or 3 more steps to go and when I fell, my ankle twisted and I heard a loud snap. I just started working there and I'm sort of timid and shy, so I tried to not make a big deal out of it even though it really hurt. At the end of the night I decided that even though I didn't want to say anything, I should tell my boss and fill out an accident report in case it were to get worse and I would need to go see a doctor. 
The next day I woke up to an ankle the size of an orange and so needless to say, I went to the hospital to get it checked out. They took x-rays and gave me crutches and an air cast. The x-rays showed a definite line in my ankle but they said that it could possibly just be some kind of growth plate or something that hasn't finished growing yet and that they would call me by today to let me know for sure. I still haven't heard back about my x-rays and so I don't know if its just sprained or fractured. I've heard that "no news is good news" so if they don't call you back with any results then nothing is wrong. Is this true?
I've already missed 2 days of work over it and my boss doesn't seem to be mad or anything but I don't want to push my luck. My ankle DEFINITLY hurts but if its not fractured I feel like I should be going back to work. I tried taking the cast off today and not using the crutches just to put a little weight back on it and it ended up hurting me worse. I'm sort of worried that the hospital I went to just did a shitty job of looking at my x-rays and there may be something wrong that they just didn't catch (this particular hospital is notorious for sending people all over the world to a specialist because they don't want to deal with things or else just not doing their job to begin with and giving a misdiagnosis). 

So I guess my question to TQC is what should I do? Should I go and get a second opinion from a foot/ankle specialist? Should I make myself go back in to work or should I stay home for the week despite all the shit the people I work with are probably going to give me? Should I call the hospital and ask about my results even though they didn't call me

What do you do when you get a call for someone who no longer lives at that number?

I'm on the verge of tears right now...long story short, my MIL hates me.

We are currently living in her basement, the whole thing is finished and is our little apartment right now while I'm in Nursing school.

On easter night, she made 'bunny foot prints' for my daughter to wake up to, both downstairs and upstairs.

Upstairs, where she lives, she used baby powder. Down here, she used flour.

And Water.

And by morning, it's dried, and crusted all over my beautiful new rug. I've tried scraping, and brusing it out, but I don't know what else to do.

ANY suggestions/help, would be greatly appreciated. It's really thick, like pancake mix.

Edit: She made the mix, then gave it to my brother to put on the rug, so she claims it is not her fault, since he APPLIED it to the rug, though she admitted she made it, told him to do it. My brother is way young, and totally did not realize. She is NOT the type of person to take care of mistakes she makes.

While I have friends that could possibly be willing to go with me, I usually end up playing mother hen to them and I just feel like relaxing for once and enjoying myself without their drama. Do you think it would be weird to go by myself? Have you ever gone on vacation alone?

Have you ever aspired to be featured on stupid_free, without obvious trolling of communities??

My post earlier about forced sterilization I was sure would get sf'd!! I am slightly sad it did not. It was a legit question but I was sure within the comments drama wank would ensue and a sf police officer would swoop down and feature me!

What was the high today where you live?

60F

Would you rather have a car from: Ford, GM, or Chrysler?

Chrysler


How quickly do you realize that you just posted an entry to the wrong comm?

Immediately for this one! I totally saw where it was posting right when I clicked post. Whew, disaster averted!

when you get alcohol on a flight, do they check your ID (in the US of course)?

last time i flew, i upgraded to first class so alcohol was free and the flight attendant offered it, but i turned it down because i was afraid she'd check my ID. (i was 20 at the time, i'm still 20)

How do I get this old lady who comes into my job to stop giving me photocopied psalms? She gave me one, then the next time she came in she asked me "Did you like that thing I gave you the other day?" and I said "What thing? Ohhh- yeah! Sure."

Now she has a gift every time she comes in. I'm not religious at all, and I just chuck 'em, but I can't think of anyway to get her to stop without being rude.

The question -- What do you think of Zionism (i.e. do you support it or not & why or why not)? Do you think it's just causing needless blood letting for the sake of gaining territory and Israel further engorging its military-industrial-cockplex?

In a rather ironic twist of historical racism, the hunted has become the hunter.  Zionism, the belief that having some ancestors lived in some general region eons ago means that you own the entire region forever, is a belief pushed forward to the point that the creation of the nation of Israel.

How was this amazing feat accomplished?  The combination of the Jewish version of the race card being played (allowed for ideological immunity from criticism), hatred against Arabasterrorists,  and being visibly/aesthetically "white," allowed this group of essentially white people to reign supremacy over the terrorist-nations.

The UN and other policy-making groups granted them the state of Israel.  Did they just accept this gracious offering of land and learn a lesson from their history of oppression? NO.  Not only did they create a state which was explicitly sexist in policy, which was explicitly biased against non-Jews (no first amendment there), they started a RUTHLESS, BLOODY WAR against the Arabsterrorists.

Did they need this new, extra land?  Was there any justification for it that wasn't entrenched in some sense of greed and sense of conquering akin to the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR et al during the CRUSADES?  Was it at all based on something than a perversion of a very old religion? FUCK NO.

Israel...FUCK YEAH (think Team America)....fuck all those dirty fuckers who dare to get in the way of your expansion.

Just think--if this were a group of very, very non-white people, such as Africans or Middle Easterners, would this behavior be accepted unless they had oil?  Hell, if they had been white, but non-Jewish (i.e. no race card), would they have gotten away with this?

Regardless of what you think of my post, it's clear that "Zionism" is just a bunch of greedy, blot letting bullshit that results in POINTLESS expansion of territory.

So how is this for a movie idea?

Back story: There are three guys at my college that you look at and think "Jesus?" Two look like stereotypical white Jesus, except one looks more biblical (dirty) and the other one is well groomed and wears a bandana and aviator sunglasses (I about shat myself when I saw him walking down the hallway). And then the third one looks like PERFECT Black Jesus.

So, I want to pitch an idea to the three of them:

Passion of the Christ 2: Die Another Day, and I want it to be an intense movie that involves the three of them fighting to the death over the course of 2 and a half hours, and their battle will be rampaged through some cool ass city.

High speed motorcycle chases, hookers and blow, blatant heresy, and HILLAAAAARITTTYYY!!!


So, my question for you TQC, is who's gonna be on my crew?

I need camera men, money, writers, producers, and extras.
