When you hear something you find offensive to any degree, do you speak up or keep it to yourself?

If it depends on the situation/people involved, what situations would you speak up? When would you be quiet?

So I have googled this, and I can't find what I'm looking for. I have made an icon out of one of my pictures before on a website, and I can't find where I did it. I don't have photoshop or anything that I can make icons with. I just need something simple. Anybody know of a site where I can do this?

i want to see a movie that came out on february 15. how likely is it that it's still in theatres?

actually, a better question would be: how long to movies typically stay in theatres? because the movie i want to see apparently isn't to be found in any theatre ANYWHERE.

Anyone have portable speaker recommendations, for laptop use?

I'm looking for a compact pair; what I have in mind is stuffing them in my bag and taking them with me to work. Usually work by myself and listen to music, and headphones don't work well at all because a) I move around a lot and can't be tied down b) I have to listen for the phone and can't do that with something stuffed in my ear.

Privacy

I want to change the level of privacy for a large number of past entries, but to do this I need a paid account. Would it work to just set up automatic deposits, use the thingy, and then cancel before one month so as to only be charged $3?

Anyone ever used the mass-privacy-change tool?

Are you ever concerned about the "privacy" of your livejournal?

does anybody else have trouble staying focused on the present and not worrying about everything you have to do tomorrow/this week/etc? lately i've been basically unable to stop worrying about shit like that and it's driving me insane, especially because now i'm worrying about my future with my boyfriend, which i DO NOT need to be worrying about right now. and the thing is, most of what i'm worrying about isn't stuff i actually need to worry about. it's stuff like moving in with my boyfriend (which won't happen for at least six months) and school, cause i can't afford full time right now and don't qualify for financial aid, and the fact that i don't have a job and currently owe about twice as much money as i actually have. i'm really sick of freaking out like this because i know it's pointless and unnecessary but it just seems like i have nothing better to think about and thus have to worry about stupid shit.

so, does anyone have any tips or anything for how to stay focused on the present and live in the moment and all of that? i feel like i'd be a lot less stressed out and a lot happier if i could master this.

* Alzheimer's disease is an illness which can cause mild to severe memory loss.
* Parkinson's disease is a genetic defect which can always result in memory loss.
* Huntington's disease is an inherited disease which can result in memory loss.
* Stress-related activities are another factor which can result in memory loss.
* It is also caused by traumatic brain injury, which a concussion is a form of.

 Hey TQC. I'm so tired that when I went to bring my lunch to the kitchen, I walked into the bathroom instead. Which is down the hall and past the kitchen.

true story?

Yesterday, a decent looking woman wearing sunglasses in a SUV stopped my sister on the street and asked her to do her a favor. She said she'd give my sister $200 if she can come with her to a mall because she apparently forgot something. And she couldn't just go in there because the cops would chase after her or whatever. She said she couldn't get her husband to do it for her either cause they'd get a divorce.

My sister repeatedly asked the woman what it was that she forgot at the store in the women's dressing room...and the woman just kept on biting her lip, putting her head down, and tears were dripping down her cheeks. The woman refused to tell my sister what it was...and kept mentioning 'it's just a thing' and shaking her head and shit.

What do you guys think it could possibly be? I don't know how my sister stayed that long to hear her story...I'd bust outta there if some stranger asked me to do them a favor...especially one that involved money!

 a small black spider just crawled out from under my shirt sleeve and bit me on the arm. i've been wearing this shirt for almost six hours now. is this a sign from a higher(or lower)power? should i start washing my clothes in insecticide?

 ETA: okay, so i keep feeling small bites all over now, so i went to the restroom and took off the shirt. so i'm still wearing a hoodie, but truck drivers can smell a nipple from a mile away. they keep circling me like sharks swimming around a three-legged kitten. should i just say i'm sick and go home early? or should i stick around and put a stapler through the eye of the first driver that approaches within four feet?

Also, they test the sirens at noon on the first Saturday of the month here, so it is not likely to be a test.

my dad called me at 4:52AM, but i didn't answer because i was afraid of getting bad news. he didn't leave a message and hasn't called back. i'm not sure how long the phone was ringing and he might have hung up pretty quickly. it's been a while since he's called me so i'm probably not on his most recent calls, so i don't think it was an accident.

why do you think he called? should i be worried? i'm scared to call back in case there is bad news.

edit: alright, i got up the nerve to call back. he was trying to shut his alarm off and he hit the wrong buttons.

what the flip is going on with jeans these days?

i've been losing weight for over 3 years. i should have gone down 3-4 pant sizes but i've somehow barely managed to crack the size below the one i was at my highest weight, despite losing a significant amount of pounds and inches. i found one of my old pairs of jeans and despite being the same size and brand as the ones i've got on now, they're noticeably bigger. it's just a bit annoying.

the jeans i've got on now are the same size as the ones i had 4 years ago, when i was a few sizes bigger but they are much smaller.

Up to what age/stage of development is it appropriate to live with your parents? At what point do you become a hopeless loser, a mama's-basement-dwelling freak of nature not fit to be seen by normal society? When did you sever the apron strings - or when do you intend to leave the nest?

My parents have told me that as soon as I'm out of college, I'm on my own, and while they'll be glad to see me for Christmas I'd better get my own damn apartment! My father left home at 18 to join the army, and my mother married my father by the time she graduated college, so they were living together.

I just always think it's a bit... weird to read stories of thirty-year-olds with toddlers who are still living in their parents' homes, and not in separate suites paying rent but in their childhood rooms and so on.

I man the phones here where I work, and there is one caller in particular, Paul, who would do the rudest thing: he immediately interrupted me during my greeting and talked over me.

So I decided to just cheerfully continue on with my greeting, whenever he'd call. It forced him to have to repeat the name of the person he was calling for.

I am happy to report that this has "trained" him. Now he no longer interrupts, and he actually waits for me to FINISH. How great!

OK, TQC, this might be a tough one, but I'd like to settle a bit of an argument between me and a friend of mine. Nothing too major, but I'm pretty sure I'm right, and she insists that she's right. Which is where you all come in, because I'm hoping someone in here will actually know the right answer.

My friend's twenty-year-old cousin just gave birth to a baby boy at 5 AM this morning. My friend is all excited about it, obviously, and was telling me all about the baby on the way to breakfast this morning (including his name, which is, wow, as we were saying, just ridiculously long.) The baby's name is Jacob Thomas William Cooper-Adams.

Now. It's the "Cooper-Adams" bit that has caused the small argument between us. Apparently, the cousin decided to give the baby a hyphenated last name because she and her boyfriend are (obviously) not married, are not even close to being engaged, and she didn't want the baby just to have the father's last name in case they broke up. But, she didn't want to give him just her last name in case they got married, because then the father would have to adopt the child in order for him to have his father's last name.

I say that's bullshit, because even if the mother chose to give the baby just her last name for now, and they decided to get married in the future, why would the father have to adopt his own biological child in order for that child to take his last name? There's no dispute over this guy being the biological father; his name is on the birth certificate, so why in the hell would he need to adopt the baby in order to give it his last name? It doesn't make one bit of sense to me, and I used to work for Vital Statistics back in my home province and I know I had more than one case where a couple would come in with that exact same situation, and all they needed to do was fill out a "legal name change" form and voila! In ten business days, it was done. And this couple lives in the same province I'm from, so...unless the rules have changed majorly, I'm pretty sure I'm right.

But what say you, TQC? In the case of a baby being given his mother's last name at birth, would the biological father have to actually adopt the child if, in the future, the couple decided to marry and they wanted the child to have the father's last name?

I'm beyond sleepy, TQC, despite coffee and a decent amount of sleep. When you're exhausted for no apparent reason, what do you do to wake up? What time do you go to bed and what time do you get up?

Jumping jacks or stretching, plus more caffeine; between 1-2am and up again ~8:30.

What is the weather generally like where you live? What is the worst weather that you have experienced living there?

Nice, but the random tornados and hurricane remnants can get old. Exciting, beautiful to watch, but old.

What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you do it and if not, do you plan to in the future?

Either a doctor or a street artist in San Francisco. Didn't do either and don't plan to.

Do you have a cat? Is s/he neurotic? Does this piss you off or just amuse you?

Two, one of whom is definitely neurotic and the other who couldn't care less. It's sweet and I'm quite fond of her and all of her obsessively possessive, affection starved ways.

So as you may have heard, several airlines (particularly American) have been canceling tons and tons of their flights after failing recent Federal inspections. If you haven't heard about it but care, you can read about it here.

I am scheduled to take a trip next week, and indeed one of my flights is on American, and is one of the routes which they've been canceling. If you were in this situation, what would you do? Would you try to reschedule that flight on a different airline asap, would you just cancel your trip entirely, or would you just not worry about it at all and assume it will be magically (and safely) fixed by this time next week?

On a very related note, for those who think I should throw caution to the wind and go on my trip anyway, how expensive do you think it would it be to rent a car and drive it (on the highway) for 8 or so hours?

I had a plastic MacBook case for my 13 inch MacBook. I recently upgraded and bought a MacBook Pro so I no longer had use for the case. I left the case at my boyfriend’s place for a few weeks. Then this morning, he says to me: “Oh, I gave your old case to my neighbor.” I was in a great mood, but as soon as he said this, it was very hard for me to stay that way. Even if I no longer used the case, IT STILL BELONGED TO ME. When I bitched at him, he asked, “are you seriously mad about this? What’s the big deal?” He then asked why I had such an attachment to it, but this has nothing to do with attachment issues.

Is it just me, or does his actions display a complete lack of common courtesy and MANNERS? Did I have a right to get upset?

 TQC. A bunch of my old co-workers are getting together after work and I was supposed to go. But I'm bailing because I've hardly slept since Friday night, I have a horrible headache because of lack of sleep, and if I do go, I still have to drive 30 min home first, walk/feed the dogs, the drive 30 min to meet them, and that is way too much driving/activity for me right now.

Am I a scumbag for bailing, y/n?

So, I have that stupid arm fat thing going on. I'd like to start doing some bicep and tricep exercises every day, along with my trying to walk for at least 45 minutes a day and do 50 sit-ups.

1a.) How long would you recommend I do exercises for biceps and triceps each?

1b.) Which exercises specifically will be the best for toning my arms?

1c.) How long do you think it'll take before I start seeing results?

2.) In your opinion, is it a rickroll if you just play the music at someone in person as opposed to having them click a link?

My aunt once said "If your children were toys, the package would say, "High Energy! Action-Packed! Never Need batteries! Watch ''Em Go!"

What would the box say if you were a toy?

*my answer* "Needs massive amounts of caffeine to function even remotely well."

Does your pet mirror your mood/behavior?

I ask because I've been very busy lately and my cat has been totally restless, walking around the house meowing constantly and cannot sit still. She's been very weird and the only time I wondered if it had to do with me is when I laid on the couch to nap today and she instantly calmed down and went over to snuggle up with me and sleep too, and didn't move until I woke up.

Do you think honor societies such as Phi Theta Kappa are for pretentious and egotistical people?

Do you like being single? Why or why not?

Is the term "weird" mostly associated as being a bad thing or a good thing?

Also if you know what I'm talking about, have you ever said anything that could qualify?

If someone is showing visible symptoms of having a stomach illness, are they contagious then? Were they contagious before they started showing signs?

Basically: If I don't go around this person from now until he's better, like if I avoid him now, will I have less chance of catching it? Or am I potentially fucked already since I've been around him in close range?

Losing things

I can't find the receipt for my doctor's visit, and the prescription I got. I need the receipts to claim money back.

It was in my handbag, but it kept getting in the way, so I put it somewhere else. I just don't know which particular somewhere else.

So, TQC, if you were a distracted, slightly forgetful woman, where would you put important, folded pieces of paper?

So I just burned my face with some depilatory cream. So I put on some moisturizer and consulted google who told me to put some hydrocortisone cream on the inflamed areas and now my skin is burning a lot more, and is really fucking red.

SO, TQC, should I skip class?

Oh, and do you have any advice for my face?

I saw someone ask this a few months ago, and the answers were so helpful. Unfortunately, I don't remember any of them because I wasn't going on a vacation at the time.

What items (obvious or not so obvious) do you forget to bring/pack when you go on vacation?

I want to be extra prepared. I'll be gone 3 days, and will be staying in a decent hotel.

What is the exact name for these plates?

My mother said that they were given to her by a Japanese foreign exchange student we hosted back in the 90's. She can't remember what they are. They are plastic and about 5inches in diameter.

Would you be weirded out if your friend(of the sex you favor) told you they had a sex dream about you?
For all intents and purposes, lets assume you don't find the person (otherwise)creepy or unattractive.

ETA: Would you be flattered?

 If I absolutely loved the book East of Eden, would watching the movie disappoint me?

 I've read East of Eden, The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, Cannery Row, and Sweet Thursday.  What Steinbeck book should I read next?

 Do you know of any good activities I could make my class do on schizophrenia?  I'm doing a 40 min presentation next month and need some ideas besides a power point and video clip.

 Have you ever heard of The Economist?  I am thinking of subscribing--should I?  Only about $60 a year.

How do you feel about your last name? Would (or did) you change it if you could?


I'm asking because I just found out today that I got into the grad teaching program I wanted so I'm about to be called Ms. "Jooolia" by 50 sixth graders, which is both good and bad. Good because I'm psyched to be in the program, bad because I got made fun of because of my last name when I was in the 6th grade :P.

ETA: I was called "Julia Jerk-off" and like, didn't totally get it. Woe.

A question I need to ask for work:
What do you call oral sex?

If you would mention if it's only applicable in certain situations--girl on girl, guy on guy, wookie on incredibly distraught ewok--that'd be fabulous.

ETA: You all rock. Thanks muchly!

What was your last "I fucked up big time" moment?
Are there some days you just wonder if people are better off without you?
Have you ever tried E before and if so, how was it, both during and after it wore off?
Do you know someone in your life who you know is probably bad for you, but is just utterly shag-worthy beyond belief?
