Do you think it's rude to talk on a cell phone at a bookstore? I was at Border's and this guy was having a loud and long conversation on his cell phone (mostly about fraternities) while pacing around the entire store. The weather was really nice outside so he could have gone outside to do it.
Where is cell phone talking taboo, according to you?
What color looks best on you?
Who's texting you right now?

Where is the strangest place you've ever had sex?
I can't really travel bc I'm in summer school and I have no desire/time to buy clothes so what should I do with this money?

I partly get some but then the other half of the question confuses me.
Random but give me your answers. ... any answers!!
What's your opinion of it?
Would you ever buy one of these or your family?
What would your kids say if you brought that home? What would you have said if your parents had brought that home?
How do you watch Silence of the Lambs with no references to sex or violence? Or The Omen? Wedding Crashers? Could you watch any of those movies edited to remove all references to sex and violence?
What kind of filter could they possibly put on Ratatouille? Charlotte's Web? Muppets from Space?
I think it's disgusting. If you don't want your children getting the wrong idea about language, sex, and violence: talk to them. Explain why you don't want them watching the movie. You can't keep them in a bubble forever and they're going to hear about it from somewhere eventually. Plus it ruins any artistic integrity the film has.
2) Would you use a miracle cure (not too miracle-y, something that makes you look ten years younger, or fully regrows bald hair, or permanently cures flatulence, etc) that you took by mouth, had no taste, but was composed entirely of puréed pig anuses?
3) Let's say your best friend in the entire world is an alien, and you're out at dinner one night when it suddenly begins choking. The Heimlich maneuver worked, but they've passed out and aren't breathing. Would you give it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation? Please note that this particular alien species eats and defecates from the same hole, kind of like an owl, but much messier. Also, their poo tastes like cherries.

i love my phone in general but the fact that i can't make it work with my computer is pissing me off. every time i try and install the software it says i have an invalid drive letter, but i can't reassign my drive letter unless i completely reinstall my OS. and that's just a pain in the ass.
TQC, will I ever kill this little bastard?
Do you pronounce it "meem", as in "beam" or "seem"? OR do you pronounce it "meme", as in "pee-pee" or "Mimi from the Drew Carey Show"?
For me, it's figging, which is when a person gets off on having ginger inserted into their vagina or rectum. It creates an intense burning sensation that would be torture for most people, but if you're masochistic you might enjoy it.

3) Can you tell me a little about the last major change in your life?
edit pictures are welcome.
Do you think you're delusional about your appearance?
The house next to us has a mowing notice in their yard because the grass is seriously over one foot high. We think that this old guy is supposed to be mowing that yard but is too senile to realize it. He doesn't come a lot, so if he IS supposed to be mowing our lawn, we'd have had grass a foot high as well.
Is this old man senile? Did my landlord hire this guy and forget to tell him that someone moved in?
- McCain: Has a decent length last name and, despite having a really cute daughter and having done a better than average interview on The Daily Show, is generally touted as being older than dirt.
- Obama: Having a slightly shorter name but still be a reasonable, well thought out, intelligent man who seems to have a lot of really good ideas despite the tentative connection to a religious figure with touretts syndrome.
- Clinton: Having the longest name of them all, is remarkably stubborn, still married to a former president who was unfaithful to her...and, as we all know, she eats live puppies.
Who are you currently thinking you'd like to have as President of these United States?
Jarrolds is so damn expensive!

Why do you think they went with that as an ad? Do you think it's in anyway effective?
I had to look at the big version to see what was going on. But I have no clue at all what they're trying to say with it.
I remember scenes from Scrubs
That are quite funny
At inappropriate times
Edit: Except, unlike me, do it correctly. ;)
Say if there were all these rooms set up for this, all of them padded, and soundproofed, with a stuff that you could throw around (yet not do damage to yourself or the room with them), as you screamed and yelled and stomped, would you use it? There would be no danger to you with what you did in there, no one would lock you in and leave you, you could get out at any time, but you could stay in there and just get it all out. Do you think that something like this would help society at all? Or would it encourage more angry behaviour?
How should I make him prove he really did get married?
Do YOU think he really got married?
Also, I do not know how to dance at all. How do people actually dance? I'm assuming at proms people don't actually dance like they do in music videos, but I have no rhythm and can't do anything. Can you explain to me what to do or, even better, show me videos of people doing "real" dancing?

Is there anything that can be done to fix a laptop monitor that looks like it's having a seizure? It goes all wonky and turns into blocks of color, usually flashes different random colors a few times before it settles on a color block scheme it likes and stays like that. It fixes itself if I touch the screen in any way. It's an old laptop, so I'm not surprised this is happening. I just want to know if there's a cheap quick solution to make it stop because it's really annoying.

See, 90% of his friends are FEMALE. about 80% of them he has had sex with/kissed/dated or some form of sexual contact with. He also is a compulsive heavly flirter.
Im worried he will continue on with these female friends (some of his ex's he still has sex with) or do something to hurt her with one of his friends. I want to tell her not to date him. (she asked my opinion)
What would you tell youre friend to do? Would you trust/want to be with someone who is like this, and someone who has been known to cheat in the past? Even if they claim they will *change* and wont do it to you?

How do you feel about childbirth? Does it scare you?
If you've had a baby:
What was it like? Was it painful?
a) a career that interests you and offers a lot of mobility in the sense that jobs are pretty much always available somewhere in the country. This career option is also very stable and comfortable in the sense that almost every day is fairly the same.
b) a career that seems a bit more exciting than career choice A, but its market is very unpredictable. you'd only make tons of money if you became the head or started your own business. May have to work some weekends, and not as mobile in the sense that this career path is really only big in huge cities where the cost of living is high (NYC, LA)
Is it a fashion faux pas for a girl to wear men's board shorts not only at the beach, but in public on the way to said beach? I want to play in the waves and you'd have to kill me to get into any kind of women's swimwear. I find board shorts cute, but would people look at me strangely if I wore them?
Edit: I'm looking at women's board shorts, but they all seem to be way too small (you don't want to see that much of my thighs, srsly) or too form-fitting. I need baggy to be comfortable.
And yes, I'd have a top with it. Just a t-shirt.
Also, completely unrelated:
Your peanut butter - chunky or creamy? Or if you don't like peanut butter (yet are not allergic to peanuts), why not?
I like chunky, but it seems like my mom and I are the only people in the world. I also have an appreciation for creamy, though.

Any spider killing tips? (hitting with a book is not an option since this spider seems to have ninja-like capabilities and jumps)
Catcalling--creepy or a compliment?
The article seems to be directed toward women, which made me wonder what men think when women 'catcall' men?

Edit: I FAIL.
(I'm trying to name my idog. The poor thing is pink. My desk-buddy says I should name him Spike or Killer... but I'm looking for something more original. Any ideas?)
I'm seeing him tonight and, naturally, I want him to lose because I'm horny (though I won't admit it). What sorts of sexy things can one do/say to make their boyfriend absolutely miserable and, ultimately, cave into carnal desires (thus, resulting in amazing, pent-up frustration sex)?
Also, have you ever had angry sex before? If yes, how was it?
Have you ever tried to run over a bird?
The person in the room next to me keeps having these marathon rock band sessions (I'm assuming it's rock band). He's the only one, and he keeps playing the drums. It's been going on for over an hour now. Last time it lasted four hours. And he was singing part of the time. Do I shoot him, or just keep playing baroque music really loud?
I ran across this drama mess some stupid teen romance many years ago: Girl meets guy some sort of pen pal thing. They start to hit off, and imply that they both want to date, but no promises are made. Then girl meets an old friend whom she hasn't seen in awhile, and they start to get involved. She goes "ohnoez, turmoil!" and proceeds to worry and not want either guy to find out. She is also putting off meeting Mr. PenPal. What would you do if you were her?
I think I would just tell Mr. PenPal I didn't want a relationship, and hope that things with Mr. OldFriend would just go back to normal. Then I seriously consider removing myself from the gene pool, because I obviously don't possess the common sense God gave kumquats.
Pork or beef?
If you have had both, which do you prefer?
Where are you from?
A girl on my friends list was telling a foreigner to "get out of her state" in a Texas community for asking where to get pulled pork barbecue in Austin. I lol'd because she wouldn't accept that people outside of Texas generally think of pork as barbecue, not beef. Which is why I'm asking, of course, to see if my assumption (about other states) was correct.
Anyway, I like pork better, and I'm from Texas.

What is the most overrated book?
My best friend plays this videogame. It's an MMO on a server, so it's multiplayer. Now, this friend is ADAMANT that I not buy this game - even though it's out in public domain for anyone to buy and play - because he says it's "his private space" an he doesn't want me "interfering" with it.
This bothers me for two reasons. One, because it's a pretty dumb thing to tell someone they can't play something that's out there for everyone to enjoy. That's like banning your friends from playing DDR because it's YOUR workout routine, and nobody else can take that away. It's dumb and irrational.
The second reason his excuse bothers me is that he won't tell me WHY it's "his private space". I asked if he just didn't want me to catch him cybering or anything, and he said that wasn't it, so I have no freaking clue what huge secret he's got about that digital world that he can't allow any of his real life friends to join.
It makes it even more confusing when he sings praises about this game when we hang out, basically making me want to try it, but then he gets all snide and bitchy when I say I'm interested in playing it. The last time I asked him (nicely) to explain why he considered it "private", he called me a "pain" and acted like a total dick to me for the duration of the conversation. I have no idea what's going on.
Am I out of line for thinking his excuse is dumb and irrational? It's not like I'd be playing WITH him, I just want to try out the damn game. But he doesn't even want me to do that. Can anyone give me some plausible theories here? This is driving me batty.
I bought a wig at a thrift shop the other day, but I don't want to put it on my head until I'm sure its clean.

What is the most underrated movie?
How would you feel about that?
I personally hate reading online journals (for uni). I much prefer it when they're printed out. Also, I hate the idea of reading a novel online. I love curling up with a book on my bed and to have no books, no paper would be really awful. Plus, books look nice on my shelf.
I've got a couple of flights to book that require me changing planes, since I cannot get a direct flight.
Any idea on how long I should leave between each flight?
Some have me landing at noon but the next plane takes off at 12:45.. is that enough time or should I wait for a later flight?
Thanks for your help.

Do you thrash in your sleep? Snore? Talk?
Will you tell me your favorite sleep-talking story?
Are you a tummy, side, or back sleeper?
Strange thing for me is I like sleeping with someone, but I thrash a lot so people hate sleeping with me. I also do this thing where I'll cuddle, then I'll push, then I'll cuddle, then I'll push again. But I swear my boyfriend is magical, because I'll go to sleep on his chest and I won't move the whole night.
Edit, I forgot my story. I was in New York, and I had to share a bed with my little sister. We were taking a nap, and I woke up before she did. As I was lying in bed, looking at the ceiling, she smacked me in the face. I sat up and was all, "WTF?" but then she started singing "I'm a Little Teapot."
