It really bothered me and made me feel uncomfortable. Would it have bothered you?
Long story short, my question is: Have you ever been, in some way that wasn't clearly visible, disabled physically/emotionally[?] and had people mock/disbelieve in the issues existence? How did you/would you deal with this?
Also, what do you think about that liability theory? Do you agree?
I've heard that if they require you to pay, it's a scam. How can I find one that's not? I really need some extra cash.
What kind of everyday or ordinary thing is an adventure to you, worth telling everyone about?
For me it's going to the library. I love telling people what book I checked out, what it's about, what I've heard about it, and what I think so far.
I swear, my room mate does it all the time. It's freaking midnight and she's just putting on random clothes for no reason and then throwing them on the floor.
 for the link-phobic, it's a micro-blogging site, kind of like the "status" in facebook (from what I can see).
Am I really out of the loop with these things? I just heard about this today...

I get kind of nervous apply for waiting jobs because I don't have any experience to list on my resume. Just Dunkin' 4 years ago and the cafe where I volunteer at now. Should I just stick to retail (even though I don't really want to)? How would I go about trying to find a good/ decent/ wetting-my-toes waiting job? Or, how can I talk straight out of my ass?
Also, have you ever had cherry blossom tea?

Do you think that it's appropriate for a school to give out, as a prize for something, a gift card for Victoria's Secret? This is a high school (around prom time). If you were a parent, what would you think? What do you think now?
For the record... the high school I teach Social Studies at did this in May. I was like D: when I heard it over the announcement.

In what ways are you a hypocrite?
While living abroad, you hooked up with someone and moved in with them. During this time, money for you, despite working 3 jobs, was super tight because you were sending money home to your ill mother and paying off massive student loan debts.
Your partner that you lived with KNEW of your financial woes when you met. You made no secret of them, as you rarely went out or had 'fun money'.
In this time when you lived with your partner, he/she often paid for you and gave you a little money here and there. YOU always covered your rent/bills before sending your cash home to pay things off there.
Now, 3 years later, said partner is harassing you for $2000 in repayment that they claim you owe them for this time. They are threatening to take you to small claims court in Canada to recover the money. They have no receipts for this money and it was not as if they bought you a plane ticket or something large.
If you were the (still)struggling person - would you pay back the $2000? Would you talk to this person and try to work something out?
If you were the partner - would you demand this money back or write it off as money you would normally spend in the course of a relationship?
If you were the 3rd party (me) - would you fly to Japan and kick the arse of the partner because he is a tightwad little doofus?
Yesterday I saw a cat under the magnolia tree.
What is that person is bulimic?
Extra points for pics.

I often hear people say that PayPal always favors the buyer, but I wonder if that's really true.
2.) Do you have a PayPal horror story you'd like to share?
I'm googling it, and only finding 'hard yeast balls', which is actually a component for something else. :( I saw it in a movie, and wonder if it's just yet another bullshit made-up thing, or something real, that no one will dare write about on the internets.
What's the last thing you saw in a movie and/or book and/or something else, and tried to look up what the hell it was? Did you ever find out?
Have you tasted the "mystery" doritos that are flavored like Mt. Dew? Gross or Tasty? It tasted more like trix cereal to me.
Yesterday was my anniversary here at work and I get $100 cash. I have to spend it entirely on me and show the boss my receipts to prove that it didn't go to bills or serious stuff (he really wants his employees to splurge on themselves with this cash). What should I spend it on?
Conversely, if you are a religious person, have you ever been doing your thing with your religious buddies, and you started praying for whatever reason, and you noticed that one of the group wasn't joining in or was looking awkward? What did you do, and/or what did you think about that person?
Inspired by the fact that I ended up in a large group of praying Catholics last night. Longish story.
Don't rush it.
2. What color looks best on you?
3. What makes you comfortable?
Class ends, he gets up...it's a girl!!!!
Oy, androgynous Asians? I was shocked for about a day and a half, but I think the girl noticed me staring at her because now we give each other weird/awkward glances in class a lot. For a girl, she's still really kind of cute. I guess my heart kind of skips a beat when I see her.
Does that make me bi? I notice girls all the time (especially ones with nice legs and cute faces), but I've never actually felt doki-doki over one. And I started liking the girl when I thought she was a guy, so maybe any continuing feelings are from that false assumption?
Another thing is that the girl and I sit in noticeably distinct places in the lecture hall (although she did move over a bit closer after the weird-staring-day), so it would be obvious if one of us moved closer to the other. I have no pretext to approach her...any suggestions? I'd at least like to befriend her.
i just say "draws"
but is it drawers?
damu tqc, don't you know anything important?
and what do i do for 7 days now my other half has gone away?
So, TQC, why is whole milk so evil? Is it because it's also referred to as HOMO MILK?!?
Which guilty pleasure foods do you indulge in all too often? For me, it's chips and salsa.
Which popular consumable product would you never touch with a ten-foot pole? I do not drink energy drinks.
So I'm on this weight loss community, because I'm a fatty, and whenever someone says they want to "loose" some weight... I immediately stop reading and go to the next post because I can't not want to go grammar Nazi in the comments.
In mainstream media, do you feel there is a positive bias of news concerning whites, a negative bias of news concerning blacks, both or neither? (aka: thoughts?)
2. Do you keep an emergency stash of cash anywhere? How much do you keep?
3. I saw a guy on a motorcycle, and the back of his shirt said "If you want to drink all day, you have to start in the morning." What do you think was on the front of his shirt? (I didn't get to see it.)

1. Washington, D.C.-Baltimore, D.C.-Md.-Va.-W.Va.
2. Capital Pride Parade and festival, Taking Action For Animals, Animal Rights 2008 National Conference, and Otakon.
But I just realized... I am moving in about 3 weeks, and I really would rather they put my new address on my new license, but they would need to mail the license to my current address.
Has anybody had anything like this done? Do you think it will be a problem? Do I need to bring any kind of 'proof' that I will be moving?
When was the last time you checked your e-mail? how often do you check it throughout the day?
Have you ever participated in the dressing up of an animal? What was the occasion?
(And yes, I know sometimes dog sweaters or horse blankets are a good idea...but...yeah...)
What was the last thing you saw on the internet that made you happy? Pictures, articles, or otherwise.
Should I go to the doctor? or will it just go away?
Edit: And who are they?
I'm looking for ANYTHING, an LJ community, a website, some sort of resource, for a safe way to put on weight. It seems like my metabolism is finally slowing down, and I'd like to be able to give my body a nudge in the right direction. All I've managed to come across are diets to lose weight, and people who starve themselves to death.
Feel free to make fun of me. I do it all the time.
Edited to add - Thank you all SO much. You've given me so much to look over and compare. This is definitely going to help me!
2) Also, does anyone know anything about the Playboy Casino? I'm obsessed with Girls Next Door and Playboy so I really want to go, but my boyfriend said it might be exclusive and we might not be able to get in?
3) And on a completely different note I have a bunch of cauliflower at home but don't really know what to use it in. Any ideas? I can get pretty much any pantry items to go with it, but we don't eat meat.
Does size matter?
Ok, hello everyone! =D There's this movie i cant for the life of me figure out the name of. The person's name was Pat, but no one in the movie could figure out their gender due to them looking like they could go either way. I know women would be attracted to Pat, but I'm not 100% sure if guys would go after..uh.."it" too. Anytime Pat would reveal its gender, some kind of distraction would occur to drown out the revelation(a jackhammer goes off, a car accident suddenly happens, etc). I've looked on IMDB, wikipedia, other sites, but it just lists a bunch of actors by the name of Pat or characters in general(so....quite a few....) The movie was made somewhere between the late-80s to mid-90s.
Any ideas? I thought it was simply "Pat", but it doesn't look like it. Thanks for any input.
MYSTERY SOLVED, thanks all.
(I'm referring to work but feel free to share examples of other situations too)
Stupid little sister messed with my laptop. I can't find a plug in mouse and the left click won't work. I can't double click with my touchpad either.

We have a new guy...he's been here maybe a month...and he doesn't shut the door when he goes to the bathroom. It's a small office...there's only 4 of us here. Nobody else acts like they even notice this, but I find it very strange.
2.) What would you do in my situation?
I've considered walking over and closing the door while he's in there, but I don't have the nerve. I really think our boss should just be like "Dude, shut the door, you're stinking up the whole office!"
What are some summer jobs you had when you were young that were mostly inside where it wasn't insanely hot?
My job ends June 24th and doesn't start again until September. I'm not taking many classes this summer so I should find something to do.

my best friend and i are thinking about living together in an apartment after we graduate college. this is probably two years from now. we're looking around on teh intarwebs and we've found a couple places locally that we like.
so now, we're thinking about what we need to do. we're not ready to do anything just yet, so we've decided we both need to save up some money over the summer and over breaks from school. that and we've been trying to come up with ideas of what we'll need for our new little place, and we've made a fabulous list of stuff on target.com. i feel like i'm overlooking a lot, though.
if there's one thing you wish you had known before getting an apartment, what would it be, tqc?
My favorite pair of shoes EVER are slowly dying. The wear & tear after a few years is finally getting to the point where I need replacements. The problem is, when I bought them a while back, I should've bought two pairs - I can't find these shoes ANYWHERE. Are you feeling ambitious?
They are Rocket Dog women's shoes. If I knew what the style name was, I probably would have an easier time looking it up. But all the tags, writing, and ID'ing factors have all worn away by now.
Here is a pic of my shoe:
They look almost exactly like this one:
But instead of those criss-cross velcro straps, they have the same stiching/velcro placement as these, only brown/pink like above:
Any ideas on how to go about locating this lost style of shoe?
How tall are you? How much do you weigh? What is your pant size/shirt size?

What should I eat, TQC?
In an attempt to not be incredibly lazy over summer break and to get in shape, I've started using the elliptical 4-5 days a week for 20-30 minutes. I'm hoping to be working out for an hour by the end of the summer without getting tired. My question: with this kind of work out, is it possible to lose 15-20 lbs by August?
edit: In terms of diet, I've been cutting out the junk foods, soda, some carbs, etc. I try to eat healthier and eat smaller meals 4-5 times a day. In the past, I worked out a handful of times randomly and ate crap a lot so at this point, I'm doing better than I ever have. I just want to be healthier in general.
If so, where do you live?
If you don't, do you think it sounds like someone doesn't understand English very well when saying it?
I'm very very stressed out and wanting to scream obscenities at my school and teachers and most people in general. Can you tell me any obscenities in other languages that I could scream at the top of my lungs?

Would it be against the law to format that information and provide it on a publicly viewable website? You are not offering the game up for download. You are not offering any files up for download. You are not requesting money from anyone to be able to view the information. You are merely putting together a database of commonly-known information for people to see in one place.
When was the last time when went out to lunch with a friend?
What book are you reading?
Do you have any clothing that still has the price tags on it?
...get a sex change? You have to stay the opposite sex for one year. You can then switch back later
...tamper with a complete stranger's brakes? You're given instruction how to compromise the brakes of a car, so that they utterly fail after 5 taps of the brake pedal. You're then instructed to pick a car at random at a mall and fiddle with its brakes, so that they stop working after 5 stops. And then, you walk away and get paid. Whatever happens to the car is out of your hands
...serve 5 years in prison without parole? You're framed for a crime and given no special treatment
...move away from your native country, and never return? You can live anywhere else in the world and buy, manipulate or fill out the forms and become a citizen. At no point can you ever return to your native soil
...be shot out of a high-velocity cannon (this part is safe), and soar 100 feet, and land on a pile of pillows and cushions 15' radius. However, everywhere beyond the 15' circle is littered with broken glass and jagged rocks. If the expert can aim properly and hit his mark, you land safely and enjoy a life of riches. If he aims incorrectly, well, let's say you'll have either the best medical advances available to you, or the grandest tombstone in the land.
(This is the most boring question ever, seriously)
Have you ever told someone who talked way too much and never let anyone else get a word in and interrupted everyone and never really listened to anyone else for more than a few seconds that they talk too much? How did the person react?

Do you think different types of Injections vary in pain?

Girl #1 is sweet and cute and nice and amazing.
Things started working out, but died for a little, so I decided to go back and found Girl #2, who is the same but more into sex and short term relationships than snuggling and cute things. We start (and are currently) dating.
Suddenly, relations with Girl #1 opened up again. She doesn't want to date just yet, but possibly in the fall when we get back to school. She says that she trusts me, and given what's happened before to her, that's quite a feat.
I feel like I should tell her about Girl #2. And I don't know what to do. I'm not expecting my current relationship to last the summer, but I don't want to break it off just yet. I know I will eventually.
1. Does this make me a horrible person who is not worthy of either girl and should be castrated?
2. If not, should I tell Girl #1 that I'm dating Girl #2, but I'm still interested in Girl #1?
2b. How would you go about that?
2c. Should I just break it off with Girl #2 now for Girl #1?
3. What's your favorite roller coaster?
Flames welcome. I'm feeling guilty about this situation already.
edit: fine, it varies, whatever. how much does it cost for YOU to go bowling? i'm not looking for an exact dollar-and-cents amount, i just need a ballpark figure.
While discussing travel plans, I was trying to describe my desire to go to Edinburgh, Scotland to see those bits of the city that are underneath the city -- youknowwhatImean? There's a haunted one, they say, but I can't remember what they're called and am unsure how to google this.

TQC, what's the last thing that made you feel naive or gullible?
You receive an email asking for photos of the item, and giving the sender's exact address to ensure that delivery is an option. You send one blurry photo. The potential buyer, who is 10 miles away, agrees to take the item and asks how much additional you need for delivery.
You don't reply.

Also, what song do you find yourself liking against your will?
Usher, "Love in this Club". It's infectious. Like a disease.
Or how about a SPAM martini?
Why am I so fascinated by SPAM today? Will you post some really out-there pictures of things made of/with SPAM? I have already seen the SPAM penis, so you can skip those, thanks.
If you find something and don't return it (out of malice or you couldn't find the owner), is it stealing?

My question to you is this: In an ideal world, how would you torture/maim/kill him?
So, I graduated from high school last year. I'm dating a girl who is currently a senior in that school. We're the same age; I just graduated early. She wants to take me to the prom. Sounds fine, doesn't it? Apparently not.
Since I'm no longer a student there I can only go if I have a date. Well, obviously, she'll be my date. But apparently that's not allowed because you have to buy one ticket as a date to allow someone who doesn't go to the school, and we can't go as an official date because we're both girls. Apparently, our school doesn't let same sex couples go as official dates. Yes, this is a public school. Their excuse is that "friends might go together and pretend to be dating to get the date discount." Well excuse me but how is that different than a guy and girl friend going together to get the discount?
What are your opinions on this? Am I right in being pissed, and thinking it's pretty fucked up?
Minor problem: They have no job.
How long would you wait for them to find one before you consider it "too long"?
Is this a dealbreaker for you? How long before you move on?
If you're a fan, what is your favorite song?

So I've had three lab assignments so far in my class. Lab 1 is worth 5% of my final mark, Lab 2 is worth 10%, and Lab 3 is worth 10%. We just had our midterm, which is worth 25%, but I don't know my mark for it yet.
My marks for the labs were:
Lab 1: 100%
Lab 2: 95%
Lab 3: 87.5%
Can anyone tell me what my mark is so far for this class? If possible, could you also let me know what formula you use to figure this out so I can do it myself in the future?
Thanks in advance!

2. Within the last couple days or so my "Photos" folder within "My Pictures" has started taking an ungodly amount of time to load. It started doing this right after I put a bunch of pictures on CDs and deleted them from the folder, so I don't think it's just too full or something...any ideas of what might be happening?
3. Were/are you an honors student? Do you think it would be in bad taste for me to wear my honors cords as a belt around my graduation gown?
Also, /fit/ seems to think that if you do muscle training and cardio in the same workout period then you are a dumbfuck. Is doing both counter-productive, or are they just making shit up?
