My fiance is currently in Idaho for an internship. He gets paid $70 per week for living expenses, except that they're taking taxes out of that. He has to use his own car everyday, driving back and forth...I'm beyond annoyed, but it's what he wanted. Oh well.
The question: They were clear in saying these were just for living expenses, not his wage. It's supposed to be an unpaid internship. Is that even legal?

Say you've been dating someone for 4+ years and you want the seat down. He still forgets 75% of the time. Are you a bitch for not letting it slide, or is he an asshole for not making a point to fix it?
And for fun where do you stand on this important issue and how flexible are you?

Should I not watch Tipping the Velvet in the living room because my extremely prudish flatmate is almost certain to come out of her room during one of the steamier gay sex scenes or should I just watch it and not care about her delicate sensibilities?
WELL! Tonight, just to see what would happen, I got the urge to spin the ball for a second. So I spun it one rotation, and she flipped on her little back and then immediately righted herself. I giggled for a moment, because it was adorable, but then immediately felt like a monster.
So, TQC, what can I do to atone for my sins?
Has anyone ever volunteered in a third world country without having to pay out of their ass to help people?
EDIT, because people are assuming I am whining about airfare: A lot of programs call for an extra two, three grand even after you pay airfare and visa costs and lodgings and food yourself. These are for things like teaching programs, so it's not like you're covering building materials. Why? How expensive is 'bureaucracy' over there?

I want to be a veterinary technician and I plan on going to a four year college for it. I know you have to go to a veterinary school AFTER a four year school and get certified to be a veterinarian, but what about a technician? I can't find anything on the Internet about this for some reason. Maybe I'm not using the right searching methods. lol I really would rather not have to go to school AFTER school but if I must then I'd like to know about it beforehand. haha Also I'm not 100% sure but a veterinary assistant isn't allowed to do as much as a technician, right? I was going to do that but I wanted to be more involved in the taking care of the sick/injured animal. Would you need schooling after a four year degree to be an assistant?
If you do any veterinary work can you describe some of your experiences to me please? I already talked to a veterinarian to get a basic idea of what is involved but I'd like to hear more from others.

So TQC what would do you about this whole mess?
Should I call Racer X and ask her if she's going to let her husband decide who she can hang out with for the rest of her life? Or should I just leave well enough alone and accept the fact this is one of those "give and take" relationship things that people tell me I don't understand?
ETA:scone it is. thanks tqc!
since that has been decided, what are you going to do with your day?
she is about a 15 minute drive from where i live. she has a (apparently, very friendly) boston terrier and a shy cat. she and her husband are leaving next friday until next monday. i will have no commitments that weekend, school wise. she sounds very friendly and flexible. i have no plans that weekend that i'll be breaking. most likely, i'll be making the 15 minute commute to her house and back to where i live a few times during the weekend. i don't think i'll have to walk her animals, just feed them and love on them and let them outside to play and do their thing. i'm meeting up with her later so i don't know what my other responsibilities will be, but, with this information alone, what would you charge? since i've never done this before, i don't want to sell myself short.

There's a short movie I found that's only available on VHS, and I'd like to have it transferred to a dvd. I've googled and it's not available on any format that's relevant to this millenium :(
edited to add : I don't have a VHS player and don't want to invest in one just for this exercise.
A: Always Rafa. I will admit that Federer is an amazing athlete. However, Rafael is so much more delicious, and I really think he's going to start winning on hard and grass courts soon since he's getting progressively closer to winning Wimbledon.

Do you know what the Big E is?
Can anyone reccomend a decent foundation book? Amazon has so many...
Science is able to prove the existance of God, and shortly afterwards, discovers that indeed, God does kill a kitten every time you masturbate. How will this news change your life?
A few days later, the scientific community apologizes. They forgot to carry the one, and God doesn't kill a kitten every time you reach the big O, he kills a convict instead. How does this change your life?
No, it was definitely the kittens. The convicts aren't dying by lightning bolts. However, scientists discover that God will raise the kittens from the dead if you watch the Passion of the Christ. For every viewing of this movie (you have to actually watch it, not have it on in the background), a kitten will be restored to life. How many kittens will you save?

So how about it... were you the product of two careful type-A suburbanites finally getting money for a house, throwing out the shellfish and charting fertility? Or are you, like millions of other humans, evidence that birth control isn't *quite* 100% effective? Or maybe you were in the plan, just came a bit earlier/later than expected?
and finally... do you think reflecting on the situation affects your outlook on life from time to time? does being unplanned give you a sense of fortune/purpose or do you feel disconnected sometimes? does being planned make you feel wanted, or just more boring?

When I read the comments, it seemed like a lot of people didn't get the point of the article (which, to be fair, missed the bit of formatting where 3/4 of the way through, you're supposed to talk about how it relates to the real world, and other people, etc) and then others thought they understood it perfectly.

You decide, in turn, to open a competitive restaurant right down the street. Well within a distance that most people would be able to make a choice between the two places before settling on going to McDonalds to shut the children up (if you weren't going to have children in your restaurant to begin with, then I'm sure this is no loss to you.) However, the owner of the place who serves the Salad of the Abyss has decided that it would be in their best interest to blackmail you, threatening to release pictures of you doing rather unethical and possible health-code-violating things in various places of the establishment.
Unable to let this go, do you:
1 - Bribe the Minotaur Who Guards The Bathroom to kill him and work for you?
2 - Use Dark Charizard?
3 - Double-click the power cord?
4 - Seduce the owner, and kill him, so that your information will never be made public?
5 - Point out that those pictures are all manipulated from various porn he watches, and punch him in the testicles?
6 - Blackmail him, in return, with a large collection of clearly illegal "adult" items that he happens to have in his possession?
7 - Hire the Nazi Lesbians to take care of all of your problems?
8 - Remember that you beat Satan in a Pokémon battle, and set the owner of the place on fire with your mind?

Edit Nvm, after about a half-hour of Google-usage, I found it. Myproductadvisor.com, for the curious!
Students are invited to suggest ways to reduce social problems such as teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse, the AIDS epidemic, rising school dropout rates, gang violence, the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, abortion, political corruption, homosexuality, media decadence, or other social problems not listed here.
Am I being unreasonable for being upset about this?
If yes, how much do you pay for it?
My boyfriend has offered to help me practice, and we have been driving around in his car for the past few days. He told his parents that we were doing that, and they weren't sure that I was covered. They called to ask their insurance if I was, and with his policy, only guest drivers are covered by his insurance if they are 25 or over and have a valid driver's license. I asked if maybe I could be put on their policy (and I'd pay for all expenses, of course), but they said I needed to be a member of their household for that to be possible. And even if that WERE possible, they would need my driver's license number...which...I don't...have.
I called my mom and asked her if I could get on her policy, and she said yes, but I'd only be covered if I drove her car. And I can't because...she lives many hours away. Plus, she has a manual and is in San Francisco. Stick shift + steep hills + easily freaked out mother with a bad temper =/= driver's license.
Soooo...how the hell do I get insured so that nothing bad will happen to my boyfriend if I crash his car? Or am I just SOL in terms of getting a driver's license? How the fuck does someone who didn't get their license as a teenager get one?!
I wanna watch The Office.

What'd you do today?
but i'm taking this a step further. WHAT WOULD IT MATTER IF THEY DID KNOW WE WERE FUCKING?
i truly feel like our society needs to be more hedonistic and indulgent. i look at greek and roman society and i can't help but think ... man, how much more honest was that? we've all got freaky sides, but we feel like we have to repress them. i don't see why we should.
it's like, we have this complex about being "above" animals. i mean, animals fuck in public. they eat, they shit, they fuck. they don't try to make things have a deeper meaning. they just are. and i really feel like this is a much more honest way to live your life. and so i ask ... what's wrong with honesty? what's wrong with indulging? what's wrong with fucking orgies in the streets? the hawaiians used to do that. the greeks and romans used to do that. native americans used to do that. why not us? in some ways, their societies were so much fucking better than ours, so why can't we take a few cues from them? WHY. NOT?

3 What's your worst layover/messed up travel story?
4 What's your best layover/messed up travel story?
1 I used to love it, now I'd really rather stay home. Right now I'm stuck in Denver for an extra four hours due to the shit weather in the middle of the country.
2 Usually I just go with the flow, but this evening I came really close to screaming in frustration (and maybe strangling people). First off, because we've been upgraded to threat level Ernie here in the US, the TSA were searching one bag for every single person in the security line I was in. Then some fucking moron put each of his fluid items into their OWN quart sized baggies instead of into one - which lead to the TSA taking every single item out of his bag, stuffing all the fluid items into one baggie, and then repacking the whole thing... all while holding up everyone else in line. And then finally the douchebag behind me swiped two of my bins that I was trying to put stuff in while I was dividing things up for xray.
3 The worst would have been a 2 hour layover that turned into a 10 hour layover at JFK back in the 80s due to engine trouble.
4 Our flight leaving Las Vegas was cancelled and we were given the option of flying to an airport two hours from home then being bussed home or taking a flight the next morning. We took the flight the next morning, got our rental car back, got our hotel room back, got tickets to see Spamalot, and had a lovely late dinner at the Wynn.
Holy crap! I can't even imagine having that happen. :( The show was about 4 or 5 women who gave birth without ever even knowing they were pregnant. One of them even had TWINS.
