1. Have I loved well?

My cat was cleaning his chin this morning with his paw and ended up piercing his chin with one of his claws. He sounded like he was dying.
He's fine now, though, although if it's worse (I didn't get a clear look at it) I'll probably have to take him to the vet.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how stupid is my cat?

Can a family of 4 (two adults, 2 children age range 6-10) eat there comfortably for $100? Or could someone familliar with the restaurant suggest a more appropriate amount for a family dinner?
I'm looking for a J-pop song that I heard way back when (as in, in the mid-nineties). It was song by a very hyper chick who I believe had pink hair, and her music video was like a bad acid trip. The name of the song roughly translates to "Around and Around". Problem is, I don't know how to spell it. It sounded like "Kouru Kouru", but I am having no luck locating either that or a translation that sounds similar. So my question is: Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Even if you can give me the word so I can look it up that way...hNever mind, it has been found. Ty!

What if you were serving people who'd never been drunk before?
Do you think they would notice?
What if you were drinking non-alcoholic beverages that you thought were alcoholic? Do you think it would affect you in any way?
What if you had a bunch of drinks in front of you and you knew some of them were alcoholic and some were not. Do you think you would start to think you were buzzed simply by actual alcohol content, or just by the idea that some may or may not be alcoholic?

Smashmouth is doing a mini tour in the states and they are doing a secret mini tour in Europe this summer. They are going to be at a few festivals up in Scotland and a few other places in the UK.

I AM SO EXCITED!
Is anyone else going to see them this summer?

What method can I use to get rid of my hiccups that will actually work?
Why do so many people believe in crazy folk rememdies, especially when trying it reveals that it doesn't work?
I guess that because their hiccups EVENTUALLY go away, they assume that it was because of the FAIL remedy.
EDIT: ALL methods posted before 12:10 EST = FAIL. Stop being dumb, TQC. Drinking methods, head stand methods, and breath holding methods simply don't work. Common sense and science both say so. They didn't work for you, your hiccups just went away on your own, or possibly because they felt sorry for your FAIL.
PLZ 2 BE NOT GIVINGZ DUMB FOLK REMEDIES THAT NO WORKS

5. Any good weekend plans?
My BF and I just got a new puppy yesterday. We have 2 cats that are both 2 years old and have never really seen any other animals being indoor cats.
So far things are going ok. The puppy is naturally curious about the cats, but the cats are very unsure of him. I haven't forced them to interact much, although I have brought the dog up to the cats when they're calm to introduce. They tend to just smell him and cower or run away.
Do you have any tips on how to make sure they get along well?

Why do people who demand credits for "their" graphics never credit the people who actually created the graphics and own the copyright to the graphics (if they're different) that they used as a source? It's so hypocritical. The concept of crediting non-original, and especially, non-creative works is silly.
It's just an attempt by people with no actual creative talent to get an ego boost.
Congratulations, you managed to use photoshop to crop and do other simple modifications to a graphic graphic that you had no part in the creation of! Your skill totally surpasses that of millions of others who do the same thing to their favorite TV shows, movies, comics and other entertainment sources!

My boyfriend just woke me up for this. He's been trying to remember the name of this song, but this is all he can give me to search with.
It has the lyrics "You are beautiful" in the chorus or right before it, and it's a hard rock song. It has a male singer, and came out either this year or the end of last year. It has something about suicide or death.
Edit: He found it. -_- Thanks guys.
Why is laziness considered an undesirable trait?
What do you do as a luxury for yourself or your family? It could be going out to dinner, two hour long bubblebaths, long drives to nowhere, etc. Why is it a luxury? Like, because it's too expensive, too fattening, takes too much time, etc. Why is it so special to you?
Something you don't do often, but when you do it, it's just for the joy of it, for the positivity it gives you and yours.

I've deferred uni for the semester and have got a job working four short days a week at a call centre doing market research interviews over the phone.
It's 20 hours a week total, and while that would cover all my rent & expenses and a little more, I do still have plenty of time free to get a second part-time job, of ten hours or so.
My background other than the call centre job is all in hospitality (fast food then cafes). I like making good coffee, I don't mind the serving people / interacting with people bit, I don't really like food preparation or cleaning up (especially mopping/sweeping).
I'm also pretty good with kids but I don't change nappies!
I don't have to work in either of these areas though.
What should my second job be?
I'm really dragging this afternoon. I've never had any of those energy drinks but there is a fridge full of Red Bull here. Should I have one?

What's your favorite ride at an amusement park?
What about a carnival/fair, if different?
If you mostly don't like the rides, suppose for the sake of argument that your favorite person talks you into going to an amusement park for the day - what will occupy a good chunk of your time?
How about amusement park/carnival games - if you play them, do you have a favorite?
for those of you who use Facebook, what is your favorite application?
Do you listen to the Alkaline Trio?
If yes, are you freakin' excited about their new studio album, Agony and Irony? (July 1st!)
I was watching Big Fish a few weeks ago, for the first time. I feel like the motif of a town which can't be left (Spectre in the movie) is pretty common, but I couldn't think of any other examples. So-
1. Can anyone else think of any fictional towns which people never leave? (That's the best way I can think of to describe it, I hope you smart peoples know what I mean.)
2. Do you wanna buy a duck?
What do you do when someone you love dearly does something really irresponsible that pisses you the f*ck off?

i remember reading or hearing somewhere (yes, it was a reputable source) that scientists and astronomers and whatnot think that humans will discover some form of extraterrestrial life by the year 2025, whether it be a starship civilization or crappy bacteria on venus. what are your thoughts on this?
in a related note, exobiology/astrobiology is the study of what life on other planets could potentially be like, and includes studying what types of conditions will evolve what creatures, and how humans would communicate with whatever race of aliens we found. would this job be incredibly awesome? do you think that there's a good future in such a job?
So I'm reading Lolita. It's really funny and clever, and I don't bat an eye at the pedophilia while I'm actually READING, but the moment I put it down I start to get seriously squicked.

I think it would be fun to climax to the finale of "The 1812 Overture" or the end of "Symphonie Fantastique."

You know that smell when your mouth itself is clean/not smelly and it's not "stinkiness" but which occurs when you're really, really hungry (or nervous)? Some people have described it as "smelling like insides," "smelling like intestines," etc. It's a really distinct odor; I imagine it's the smell of stomach eating itself, but I'm not sure.
