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.

Thin and compact, fairly good quality.

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?

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.

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!

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

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!

So! What is something that you conquered, at work or wherever, by forging on and maintaining a positive attitude?

Okay, so I'm about to go drop off a resume at a few places where I want to intern as a healthcare records clerk.  Would it be okay to wear a blouse and a nice, new, non-frayed pair of jeans?  Or would a skirt and heels be more appropriate?  I'm just dropping off resumes, not interviewing, so I don't want to appear too formal or desperate, but I don't want to be too casual either.

Have you ever been an intern?  What did you do/what was it like?

I shop so much that I can easily tell where somebody got their clothing choice from based on the brand. Eventhough I don't focus on it for some ODD reason I can always remember what outfit a person was wearing the first time I met them. (ie. my best friend moved here about 5 yrs ago and I can still remember what she was wearing when I picked her up at the airport)

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?

Concerning this:
"Energy users are concerned about the fundamental reset of energy prices over the past 10 years and the resulting volatility."

Does anyone know what this "fundamental reset of energy prices" was? Or have decent guesses on what a "fundamental reset of energy prices" could be?

I'm really tired today and I just can't even munge my way through this. EDIT: But I do know it's -extremely- unlikely this deals with oil. My company doesn't deal with oil at all, except when it comes to the tiny handful of homes in the NE that use heating oil.

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?

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?

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?

Do you think that jails at the police station or prisons should cater to choice diets like Vegans or Vegetarians?  

What about longer term prisons?

Edit: It is a choice diet if you can eat food but choose to not eat it for religous or personal beliefs.


The reason I ask is that a few kids from the local university were protesting and subsequently got arrested and the thing that made the papers after talking to the students was that the police didn't have food that was Vegan or Vegetarian friendly.

Most little things can be given up temporarily with willpower, but what are five trivial things that you wouldn't be able to give up together for one day?




For me, it would be
- picking at nails
- Biting lip
- pulling out hair
- listening to music
- taking a walk


I have recently been trying to kick the hair habit, only to find that my other little ticks have expanded to fill the void. To my annoyance, the only way I can keep from doing all of them at once is to work off energy by walking around and distracting myself with my iPod.

Edit: Aw man, I forgot "biting off taste buds"...





....Also, non sequitur: is the text in my icon narrower and less blurry than the real text on your computer screen? I keep telling myself I will edit it one day.

[fame]
(i did an ljseek search to see if this had been talked about, but didn't find anything, sorry if it's a repost!)
Warning: This Video Contains Violence Which May Be Considered DisturbingCollapse )

So I'm pretty sure most of you have heard about the big Myspace beating that occurred in Lakeland, Florida, a few days ago. For those of you who didn't see the video/didn't want to watch, basically, the 14 year old victim apparently talked shit about these six different girls on MySpace at some point. They were friends/used to be friends, so when one of the girls invited her over, she went, only to be ambushed by five other girls who were hiding in the back room. Two boys were on lookout, outside the house. The girl was beaten for 30 minutes until she was unconscious, before she woke up. Three more minutes of tape show the girl being falsely imprisoned, beaten more, and confronted about some boy named Marcus.

The girl is in the hospital now, and will have permanent aural and optical damage to one side of her face. The six girls and the two boys are in jail facing charges of battery and false imprisonment. The DA wants them charged as adults.



So TQC, what are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with the charges brought forth? Should they be charged as adults? Like the video caption says, do you think MySpace caused this?

I will soon buy a new pc, and plan to multiboot on it (I have
acronis OS selecrtor, and may get disk director).

Are there any issues running win 98 and me on a core 2 duo system?
(other than minor compatibility, and the fact it may only use one core
- I'm only bothered about havibng the older os's for compatibility)

So, I sent a letter to oh_honestly_ and it got returned to me... but it didn't have any reason why it was returned to sender. It was stamped like it had gone through the post office, but it got sent back to me...

Can I just resend it like that? Or do I have to open it up and put it in another envelope?

:(

Is your hourly wage higher than your age?

Has your hourly wage ever been higher than your age?

Do you know anybody whose hourly wage is higher than their age?

If yes to any, include details pls?
