Lights out?

Do you think that when businesses close for the night the massive amount of billboard lighting should be shut off for energy conservation purposes?   

- I noticed that in NYC numerous department stores are closed but they have thousands of lights on. Is this really necessary?

I just got a list of who is willing to interview me for my co-op next year, yay! One of them, however, is asking me to e-mail them (There's no number to call) to schedule an interview. I don't have a first name, it just is listed as "G Grayshaw".

I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S A GIRL OR GUY, how should I address the e-mail? D:!

ETA: Okay, I found it, but how horrible would it have been if I addressed this GUY as "Ms. Grayshaw"? :P

Was there ever a music video in the early 90s of a band playing music in a burning house? The interior of the house may have been pink, and it may have been a nighttime shoot. This image is so strong in my mind but I can't remember for the life of me if it was real.

Poll #1199701 For $50,000, would you....

...lose the memories of the first 10 years of your life? Every single memory before the age of 11 is erased. This doesn't affect the scholastic knowledge gained in this span, strangely enough, but every thing you did, every movie or book you enjoyed., every childhood memory, wiped clean


...lose your tongue's capacity to taste chocolate? All chocolate will be as delicious as a block of uncooked tofu. Procedure is irreversible


...Get Goatse's bunghole tattooed to your chest? Like this paint job, the hands go across your nipples, with the stretched asshole in the middle. Applied with the heaviest colors available and touched up with even more color later, so removing the tat will be difficult and painful for you


...give up one of your kidneys? It's removed safely by a skilled doctor, placed in a cooler, and whisked away to parts unknown. You can survive with just one kidney. Better hope it can do the work of 2 and won't konk out ever


...wipe out the livejournals of every single person on your flist? The databases, harddrives, backups or whatever location and format your friends' journals are kept, they're magnetized, erased or just crudely beaten into the ground with a baseball bat. You get paid, but all your i-friends lose every post, picture and story they ever had on their journal. Sucks to be them


...eat your weight in pork rinds within one month? I have no idea how many that is, but a full size bag of rinds is under a pound. You have 40 days to get er done


Edit: For the last question, yes, I'm aware I goofed and created a 40 day month. I'm too sleepy to go back and change it. Deal with it

I'm a sophomore at Florida State University. I've mentally changed my major about 4 times. (never actually bothered to fill out the paper-work). I'm about to have a mental break-down because I've been freaking out over what the hell to do with my life for...hm...3 years now? yeah it definetly started in high school. 
-i'm a kick-ass writer.
-i like designing page-layouts for newspaper. (lame, i know, but its soothing.)
-i can't draw/paint/be artistic in any way.
-i want to travel like hell.

these things have never changed.

any career ideas? maybe Major ideas? should i just say f*ck it and transfer to a different school?

hate to lay this on someone else, but seriously. it's been three years, and i'm no where near decided on my life's path and a couple thousand dollars out.

I've been relentlessly job hunting for the past month or more. To no avail.
The economy sucks, therefore no one is hiring, even in tourist filed orlando, florida. =[
Its quite depressing. I'm a broke college student. Come fall, I'm going to need tons of money for school.
I need to save up.

Is there anything I could do this summer to make money?
Any alternatives to a regular 9-5?

I'm not giving up on finding a job, but in the mean time, maybe I can make some other money?

I'm desperate.

Only serious advice.

My roomie baked some chocolate brownies and the smell is positively intoxicating, alas I can't have any because 1) they aren't mine and 2)they aren't vegan friendly.

So TQC, it's 3:30am. Is that too early in the morning to go to the store to get something chocolately yet vegan to sate my craving?
What's the wierdest thing you've went to the store in the wee hours of the morning to buy?

Welcome to an alternate Earth. Barack Obama and John McCain still have the same personalities and presentations as their counterparts in this reality, but the alternate Obama holds 'our' McCain's political stances and is the Republican nominee, and the alternate McCain holds 'our' Obama's values and is the Democratic nominee. In this alternate reality, the barriers broken are the same (Obama's still the first minority to become Presidential nominee).

Come this alternate November, who gets your vote, Obama (R) or McCain (D)?

If it's past 1:30am, don't feel obligated to call me because I tend to go to sleep early these days.

I was thinking about saying this to my boyfriend. We're currently in a long-distance relationship, and for the past week or so, he hasn't been contacting me at all for HOURS either via text or phone. I text him once or twice a day and he sometimes responds and sometimes doesn't. He does always call late at night however.

I live close enough to work to walk, but I don't walk when it's dark outside (so when I have to be there at 5 a.m. or leave at 11 p.m.). Most of my co-workers are willing to drive me home from work when we close together. One girl lives an hour away herself, and she is still willing to drive me home. I know my house is only about a five-minute drive, but I still feel bad for making her go slightly out of her way when she has such a long drive home so late at night.

Should I offer to compensate her in some way? And if so, how?

My boss made something up in his head- something I don't remember happening, and I've gone through all the files to verify that I am indeed correct, and that he is crazy. Not only has he totally made it up, but he's also flamingly pissed at me about it, even though it's totally inconsequential and superfluous to any aspect of work or life or anything.

Actually, a lot of my websites don't work, and unfortunately Google is one of them.

some questions

I live in FL which is a No Fault state. Let's say you get in an accident and the person technically at fault (the one that got the citation) does not have insurance. The thing is, the accident took place on private property and therefore the uninsured motorist can drive their car without insurance (only not on state roads/highways). Since it took place on private property, apparently insurance doesn't get involved anyway. Is it plausible that the person who was not at fault would have to pay anything? Besides the damage to their own car if the uninsured motorist wouldn't pay. For example, the damage to the other person's vehicle?

Do you believe that you once you start going to a chiropractor you'll never stop going? I heard this somewhere and was wondering....

You are going to die

That you will die is a given. You know this, as do I. However, what if you were given the choice. What if you were told that you would not have to die so long as you were willing to give up something important to yourself. If you gave up a part of yourself in exhange for a longer life would it be worth it?

Or, to put it another way, if you absolutely had to have a part of your body amputated (we're talking meat and bone people) what would you choose to lop off?

TQC, I am missing my cats like crazy. I haven't seen them since Saturday morning and I won't see them again until this next Saturday. Will you post pictures of your pets?

Also, since I'm on this hotel's nice high speed connection, and since usually I have to put up with dial-up (I know, I know), can you recommend me some funny (and cute) things to look up on youtube?

Unknown writer and books a go-go

I am in the middle of writing a novel.
The raw chapters are on my deviant account. I really would like someone people to read them in order to get some feedback. However, I have no idea how to go about and do that. Well, outside of going to each person, dropping to my feet and begging them to read my story.

So, all you writers out there who have online fiction, how the devil do you do it?

Now, speaking of books, I just finished Slaughterhouse-Five. I am not a big fan of Vonnegut. I read Cat's Cradle and was pretty "Meh" on it. But I read Slaughterhouse-Five because it is supposed to be a BIG influence on LOST. I can see it. With that said, I still don't have any idea what the book is about. Is it anti-war? It doesn't come across as one because of the anti-glacier comment in the book. Is it anti-fate? Is it pro-fate? No one I know has read this book, so I would love to hear someone's thoughts on it.


What was the first job you've ever had?

me, i've never had a job, but I have my first job interview ever on the 9th
so my first job might be at Smiths(a grocery store chain in Vegas), I'm not enthusiastic about that though, bagging people's groceries and rounding up the carts in parking lots day after day is way too redundant for me.......
but I also applied at Starbucks and plan to apply at Target once i'm done with my interview at Smiths.....

Will you motivate me to finish my chemistry papers so I can get to bed, TQC? I haven't had more than six hours of sleep in a week, and I am not having fun right now.

Also, I got new glasses today. They're the same prescription; however, objects farther away appear slightly blurry. Close-up objects are crystal clear, though. Is this something that solves itself with time, or should I go back when I am less exhausted and ask them what's up?


So TQC I went vegetarian back in February, and try to make as fresh a dinner as possible every night. I am, however, getting incredibly sick of chopping vegetables, especially onions. Should I get a food processor? Or will something else chop veggies better?

How would you feel if someone you knew wrote a fairly successful book inspired by events in his or her life and you recognized yourself as a character in the book?

Would your answer change depending on whether or not you were a likable character?

In the above situation, would that make shipping characters in the book like shipping the people they're based on?

my god.
The season finale of House just aired on Australian tv two nights ago...Did anyone else watch it? Do you agree that was nearly the saddest thing that ever could have happened? I nearly cried.

Compressing ringtones?

Are there any (free, preferably available on download.com, but that's not a requirement) programs that will enable me to compress a snippet of a song to a certain size to make it usable as a ringtone?

To clarify - I have a Samsung BlackJack, and my mom has a Samsung Sync, both of which require songs to be less than 300kb to be used as ringtones. I used an MP3 ringtone extractor to create song snippets from files on my computer, but it turned them into humongous WAV files. I used WM Converter to get them back to more manageable MP3 format, but they're still not quite small enough (the ones I want range from 313 to 657kb). Short of making the snippets shorter (thereby cutting out part of the lyrics/music I want to use), is there any way I can compress the snippets to be less than 300kb, without losing too much quality?

skip me if you don't want drama

tqc i'm cheering up!

now, i'm over all the self-pity questions i posted earlier, let's try a bitchy one!

so my boyfriend got arrested for drugs two nights ago (and i haven't been able to talk to him yet). i was out with my friend last night when i found out and we're pretty close, so i told her. she immediately said, "if i were you, i'd cut ties with him." now.. my boyfriend got arrested for drugs, trust me i know that's bad, but he wasn't directly endangering lives. this friend just got her license back after a recent DUI! she was absolutely hammered when she got it. she's been extra bitchy lately so when she texted me to ask about him today, i reminded her that she would've been a mess if people cut ties with her over her problems.

she flipped!

tqc: am i a bitch? ahha, i'm sure it was bitchy but she's been so rude lately and i think it was pretty necessary.

real question: what was the last totally bitchy thing you did? extra points if it's hilarious

man, the weather's been crazy up in here.

are there tornadoes where you live?

have you ever seen one?

when the tornado sirens go off, are you the type to pick up a few valuables and move quickly to the nearest basement/shelter, or are you that crazy person sitting on the back balcony with a beer and a camera?

this topic came up in a conversation between me and some friends earlier and i'm curious about other people's point of view.

the situation is basically this, there's two people, one is in a relationship, the other isn't, the two flirt a lot.
the question is, when exactly is there a line crossed? how far is too far, and who crosses the line, the one in the relationship, or the single one?

i'm not really sure, i think the crossing the line part is a mix between when you're doing something you wouldn't want your SO to do back to you, and when there becomes a more emotional attachment?

any other opinions? (:

1. Is EliteXC really fixed? More specifically, was the Kimbo/Thompson fight fixed?

2. If you don't like MMA, who are you rooting for in the NBA finals?

3. And if both of those don't apply to you.. what's your favorite food to cook/bake?

I've suddenly become extremely sensitive to certain sounds and textures. Has this ever happened to you? Do you know of any reason this would happen?
What are some sounds and/or textures that make you cringe?
Will this post get any comments while the drama ensues?

In this day and age, do you think it's weirder for a person not to have an MP3 player or not to have a digital camera?

What's one electronic device that seems to be everywhere that you could live without?

I have no need for a TV-- wait, no, I need one for video games. So for me, I guess it'd be a digital camera.

multi-question post!

hi tqc.

have you picked up any phrases or mannerisms (if that applies) from users here,or the community in general?

i opened up a bottle of chimay to enjoy before meeting my friend at a bar after half-time in the celtics/lakers game. was that a mistake? will i be able to finish it tonight? ETA: you can find out what chimay is here (wiki) and here (website)

are you watching the basketball game? if so, who are you rooting for?

will you tell me something good that happened in your life today?

my answers:

yes, i picked up using bb from latenightdrives. at least, i think it's her that uses it.
