Someone asked this question on topicless and I liked it so I thought I'd ask it here.

"Songs with a sociology undertone

For my soc101 class he wants us to write a short paper about a song, that talks about the sociology aspects we learned this semester. Basically anything that talks shit about the government, corporations, or like Marxism, anything ~~controversial~~."

So what songs would you choose?

Why do I still have feeling with a guy I broke up with more than a year ago?

Why did he message me on facebook, was it purely to highlight the fact that I'm a total idiot over him and it's never going to work?

Are you currently taking finals? Hows that working out?

Pee in closet! Pee under the bed! Why?!

My beloved cat, chino, has taken to peeing in my closet! He has a litter box!!! Why is he doing this????

He's about 8 months old. An unneutered male, there is another male cat who doesn't really care about him that resides in my house.

So Chino has been "in jail" alot when I can't supervise him, otherwise he runs to the closet and pees!! :(

He's my baby & I don't want to get rid of him. Any ideas?

Do you tuck the blanket under your feet when you go to sleep?

I do this and my boyfriend hates it. He says I'm not maximizing the size of the blanket or something, but that's how mommy used to make the bed when I was a kid and now I'm used to sleeping like that.

Are there any German-speakers here?

What, exactly, does the word "jugendfrei" actually translate to?

I've seen it translated as "rated G" AND as "rated X", which, um, doesn't make any sense. I'm leaning more toward "rated X", because I see a derivative of "jung" (young) and "frei" (free), so...free from youth / adults only / rated X makes more sense. But I want confirmation. >:(

Before you ask, NO, it is NOT for a tattoo. I'm not that stupid.

Why do so many women say, "Look at her implants, OMG!" whenever they see a large chested woman? I know what implants look like -- we all do. It's actually pretty rare (at least, if you live outside of the OC) to see a woman with implants and not just naturally large breasts. It seems like a really catty thing women flippantly say just to dismiss another woman's looks.

While working as a waitress, I was actually asked on three different occasions if I had implants. That's not okay, either. D: Why would someone feel like they had a "right" to know about my rack at work?

"Hi, can I get you something to drink?"
"A coke, please. Oh, and are those implants?"
"Nope, our restaurant uses only the most natural breast tissue! We have a DD special tonight, if you're interested."

WTF. As if I'd have the money to get implants while working for $2 an hour at a restaurant.

I know people have asked in the past what others are using their tax rebate checks for. But, my question is: do you feel any obligation to use the tax rebate check for what they are giving it to you for?

This stems out of a conversation with a friend who was perturbed that people are going to pocket the checks instead of using them to "stimulate" the economy.

For those who write fanfiction...

Have you ever been afraid of writing a character out of character?

I feel that way all the time in my fandom. There's a character I'm obsessed with, but it's so hard to write him without making him super-duper evil. And I get sick of it every now and then.

What character have you had trouble writing?

Mine is Lezard Valeth from Valkyrie Profile.

Hey all, I'm after an elusive piece of software, hoping one of you knows of such a thing:

I need a WinXP/2K utility that will search through MP3 files for specific matching strings within their id3 tags (id3v1 or id3v2, either way). By "search through" I mean it will present me with a list of matching files in an explorer-style interface — exactly the way the built-in Windows search function does, only more precise and efficient.

(Windows' native search function does this, but it's overkill. The function searches through every byte of the file, which takes much longer and is very inefficient because I know that what I'm looking for is specifically in the id3 tag of each file. Why search through 4 megabytes of data (i.e. each file) when I know what I'm looking for is located in the first couple thousand bytes?)

Hence GREP is no good here either, not to mention that its output isn't usable to me for this purpose.

I just need to be able to say, "Show me all MP3's in D:\music\blabla with the word 'agent' in the comment field of the id3 tag(s)."

Not rocket science, but apparently no one has such a thing. I've Googled it six ways from Sunday but found nothing. Any of you know of such an animal?

(Just to clarify: I do not need a program to search for MP3's. I know where my files are — I need to search THROUGH a specific part of each one of them for a specific matching piece of data.)

I'm renting a cute little house in a good neighborhood, and my landlord's nice and doesn't charge me much. The house isn't perfect, but I love it.

On and off there's been problems with the plumbing here. Recently one of the pipes began to leak and spray out water and he's dragging his feet in fixing it. He told me he's spent over $200 trying to fix the problem, and that whatever else it costs, I should have to pay half because I probably did something I shouldn't have. (He accused me of washing a pillow in the washing machine. I did not wash a pillow.)

Some people think I should offer to give him some money to help, since he's been so nice & I don't want to burn bridges or get my rent raised or give him reason to want to get rid of me. Others say he's the landlord, it's his responsibility & his pipes & he needs to fix them.

Thoughts? What would you do?

When someone is complaining to you, do you listen and offer sympathetic words ("Oh wow, that sucks,"  "That sounds really difficult," etc.), or do you offer advice?

Sometimes, when I'm upset about something and I'm trying to vent to my boyfriend or my friends, they just immediately start giving advice, when all I really wanted was for someone to just, you know, listen.

Is there a nice way to say to my friends, "Hey, I don't want advice, can I just bitch to you for a few minutes?" They seem all butt hurt when I say something along those lines.

How would you say special effects in movies (3d) have impacted our society today?

I have always thought it was a big drive to get people to go to the movies/watch a tv series. The nice thing about effects today is that someone could have a story set in the future and if its done right, you feel like you are really there- that in part with the story and the music.

I always hate writing research papers because I horribly afraid of plagiarizing. If I have little to no knowledge on the subject, obviously I am getting the information from somewhere else, but mu paper can't be full of direct quotes. So as long as the wording is coming from my head it's not plagiarizing, even if I am getting the information from not me?

SICK DUDE

OK, so I just went out back to put a few things on the line to dry. There's a couple of garbage cans out there that the last people who lived here left, and we've never used them. I glance down into one, and it's about half full of rainwater...AND A GIANT FUCKING RAT CORPSE FLOATING IN IT. What the fuck do I do with this, TQC? I can't leave it out there, it's going to start decomposing and reeking up my yard soon, right?
ETA: I grabbed 3 trash bags (since I didn't have any heavy duty ones) and a shovel, then shoveled the thing out and dropped it into the bags which I put inside each other. Threw the whole mess into the dumpster, emptied the garbage cans and flipped them (so this wouldn't happen again) and washed my hands like fucking mad. I didn't ever get close to touching it, but still.

Second thing. What do you do when you wake up in the middle of the night to hear your neighbor having loud sex? Do you LOL, or does it make you uncomfortable? First time that happened to me last night, and I was pretty uncomfortable.

Doctor Visit?

Alright, I am 22 years old, and I haven't been to a doctor appointment thing since maybe middle school. My mother would always handle/do all the paperwork, my only job was to "wait" and practice not being bored.


My question is, I think there might be something wrong with me, and I probably need to see a doctor, but I have no idea how to even begin/start. When my mom used to do it, I would be taken to a pediatrician and I don't know if they are a walk-in type thing or if you have to make appointments. I don't have insurance, medicare, medicaid, or really even understand what most of that means.

My questions are, how should I go about getting checked out? I don't know of any doctor offices type things, other then the pediatrician I used to visit years ago. Are you supposed to go to the Hospital to schedule a doctor's appointment? Or is that a place you go to for emergencies/surgery? Can doctor appointments be made online? How do you go about paying for a doctor's visit? Do you need cash on hand and show them you have enough money? Is it like a haircut, they don't ask you if you have money, but after the service is done, if you don't have enough money you both are just staring at each other awkwardly? Do they accept Credit/Check cards? Do they bill on the spot or mail you a bill? How much does a normal doctor visit cost? What documents do I need to bring with me? Would visiting the Emergency room be cheaper/faster or do they charge a fee because it is "Emergency Aid" or something?

My second type of question involves, prescriptions. If I am written a prescription of antibiotics, I assume I go to a place like K-mart/Wal-mart, but what other documents do I need to bring with me? Do I need to bring my ID/SS Card/Birth Certificate? Do you pay for the prescriptions there, or do they bill you? How much do prescriptions normally cost? How long do they take to fill? Do I have to fill out a personal information type sheet so they have me on record? Is there a benefit to using the same pharmacist place over and over?

I know, these are probably common sense type questions, but I really don't know how to go about this and would appreciate pointers or even an answer to just one question.

You have recently been commissioned by a group of people, known only as a strange guttural sound you can't quite make without throwing up, to paint a portrait of them engaged in a complicated sexual orgy situation that can only be described as, according to witnesses of the even last decade, "Traumatizing." Generally speaking, you're displeased with having to go through with this, but you would much rather attempt to paint a portrait of it than suffer the consequences of denying the leader of the group.

Let's just say that the previous fellow who denied the leader wound up in a cell where he became very intimate with a farming implement--the result so terrible that no person can even begin to think about the event without falling to the ground in violent convulsions.

But, just before the day of the orgy/painting, you are approached by a man whose name you remember to be "Jim". Quite a simple name, really, because he's a spy for a secret organization who is going to clear these people and their odd sexual deviant paintings from the world. Mostly because it's gross and the paintings are just really bad quality--this is all for the arts.

The man gives you some options:

I had great fun with snowowl's quiz posts, so I made one. I tried to go for stuff that wasn't COMPLETELY obvious, but wasn't really difficult either. I generally arranged the questions from "duh" to "perhaps a bit tricky", at least as I see it. Not counting the last two, which are sort of bonus questions.

Obviously, no cheating with google or wikipedia, or looking at other people's answers. You're on the honor system. And if you don't know one, don't leave it blank. Just put "Don't know" or "Your mom" or something, so it's easier for me to tally.

Answers are in this comment here. BUT NO PEEKING UNTIL YOU ANSWER.

Edit: I have gotten bored and compiled a spreadsheet of your scores, up through godsickblues. It's here, if you want to see how you did compared to the rest of the class. Nobody got everything right, but sinkopayshun did the best with 14/15. Apparently the easiest question was the constellations and the hardest was the Peloponnesian war. E means that you got the point free for pointing out that you weren't American. Half credit was given if: (a) you said "Orion's belt" plugs two CORRECT constellations; (b) If you said "Henry" but not which one; (c) You said just "Bronte" or had the wrong Bronte; (d) I felt like you deserved it.

children of divorced parents, please read!

Here's my situation and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience or advice they could give me on it...

My parents have been divorced for nearly 14 years, since I was 9 years old. My dad never paid child support during that time, and I was on my own for most of it. My dad has begun paying back child support, a huge amount every month. However, the state sends every penny of it to my mom.

I am 23 now, and I'm wondering if there's a way I can get a cut of the child support sent directly to me, since my mom refuses to give me any. I know it's a unique situation, but I'm really getting cheated out of it by my mom and I have no idea what to do.

So basically my question is, since I'm no longer a minor, have been on my own for years, is there any way I can get my share of back child support or is there no way around it?

Do you ever go for coffee or a meal or whatever just by yourself? Does it feel odd?

I went on holiday for 2 weeks by myself but I don't think I could go and sit in a coffee shop without feeling a little out of place.

What do you consider a "real job"? Is it synonymous with a career? Does it require a certain number of hours per week?

Are you going to any music festivals this summer?

Do you have any coffee table books? What are they?

Have you ever been to a wedding that had really really shitty music? What were some of the craptacular musical selections?

What're some of your favorite songs to dance to at a wedding?



Also: I don't care if you don't like music at weddings.

I have a quote from a movie or tv show stuck in my head. I'm tried googling it, but I just can't get it. It goes somewhere along the lines of, "On our first date we watched Shindler's List. I cried. She didn't. I always thought that was weird" Where in the world is this from?

What are you most looking forward to this week?

girls don't poop.

is there ever a time of day or a certain place that you always feel that you have to poop?

for example, I noticed that I always get the urge to drop the kids off in the pool when I'm in a bookstore. I do not know why this is.

 what would you do in this situation... (sorry if its a long post)


so i've had this on and off mutual crush on a guy i met my freshman year in high school. we've never dated for various reasons.  when i liked him, he liked someone else, when he liked me i had a boyfriend. we were really close in 10th grade, and then in junior year (this year) we stopped talking. mostly due to his current girlfriend of nine months. 

he's been with her since last july. since then i've had a couple boyfriends, but i'm single now. and around last march this guy texted me and we kind of started talking to me again. he told me how crappy his relationship with his girlfriend had been going. 

we started out just texting a lot, and talking in school if his girlfriend wasn't around. then recently we started talking more, and hanging out. his girlfriend has no idea, but he's cheated on her with me more than a few times. and he's told me that he "loves" both of us. which i'm not sure if i believe but anyways, i dont know what to do.

i have a crush on him, and i'd love to be with him. but i've been waiting since march, and i told him on april 20th that i'm giving him a month and after that i'm done, and here it is may 4th and he still tells me he doesn't know what he's gunna do. 

should i just give up &move on now?
or should i wait until the 20th and see what happens then?

How long do cupcakes last unrefrigerated?

If I made some un-iced cupcakes and packed them very carefully, could I fly to California with them?

Would you like a cupcake? :D

What's the most pathetic, pansy, non-Y-chromosome thing you've done in the past week?




Me: just now, on a Sunday night before I have class at 8.30am, I got out the vacuum cleaner to vacuum up two bees, one that's been dead and one that was in the process of dying. They're attracted to the big window that slants with the roof in my bedroom, and try forever to escape. I would let them out but I'm afraid of getting stung, and the thing was still moving so if I picked it up with a tissue or a little hand broom thing, well, you never can know. So I let them die, and I vacuum them. One just happened to die on a 50 euro cent coin, and the other on a 2 euro coin, both on my desk under the window. Now I'm short 2,50€. That's like a million dollars, guys. I should've thought it through a bit better.

Bit belated but I was discussing with a friend earlier:

1. Vanessa Hudgens sent a nekkid picture that leaked to the internet. High School Musical 3 comes out in a few months.
2. Jamie Lynn Spears gets pregnant. Zoey 101 stays on air.
3. Miley Cyrus has slutty pics leaked from MySpace. Disney keeps mum.

Miley does an artsy photo shoot with a renowned celeb photographer and now Disney's making her lie low.

So, why is everyone shitting over this "controversy" when it's not even that racy to begin with, and when racier shit has come out before? Is it the fact that Miley posed for a magazine and not for her MySpace friends/boyfriend?

How do you avoid wasting stuff?

What do you use for stains/pet stuff/carpet spot cleaning? How much does it cost?

Me: I waste very little. I use my Dr Pepper boxes for rats or cats to play in. I save my leftovers, and if I don't get to them before they get untrustworthy I mix them in with the dogfood. My veggie scraps go to my rats. I'm thinking about growing herbs in the plastic tubs I used to move in. If I didn't live in an apartment, I would compost. I use all of the buffalo.

Graduation Poem

I was asked to read a poem aloud at graduation. I can write it (I'm having a hard time with this) or pick a poem or song by another person or group.

Should I read Collapse )

(as suggested by several friends) or something else? If not that, do you have a better idea?

I have comcast, and up until a month ago I was fine. Until it started disconnecting and lagging. So my husband and I bought a brand new router. Comcast came by yesterday, replaced the cable cord, the cable modem box, the switch in the basement.

I am STILL disconnecting and lagging. Someone just suggested to me to select a slower internet connection.. wtf.. Do you have any suggestions what I should try?

In Star Trek IV, how does bringing whales back to Earth stop the alien probe? I read the plot summary, but it doesn't clarify, except to say the transmissions from the probe where from whale songs. It's bee a while since I saw it, so I can't remember.
