I had a question earlier this week about my neck and lower back feeling stiff/aching and a headache. I woke up today and felt fine. I stayed in bed all day today, still felt fine. I got up and ready to take my brother to the Twilight book release. Put on my shoes and left.

I just got home and my neck is killing me.

Is it the shoes that are hurting me? I got 2 new pairs of shoes. Both Skechers and have been wearing them all week. I haven't really noticed if its strictly when I wear them and if this is just coincidence. It's really bothering me.

Is this common? For shoes to cause that kind of pain?
Has it ever happened to you?
Why do my Skechers haaaaaaate me? I never had a problem w/ them before! :(

is this song about someone who died or about a break up?

I'm sorry
I heard about the bad news today
A crowd of people around you
Telling you it's okay
And everything happens for a reason

When you lose a part of your self
To somebody you know
It takes a lot to let go
Every breath that you remember
Pictures fade away but memory is forever

An empty chair at all the tables
And I'll be seeing you when all my days boil down
But it's better where you're going anyway

I'm sorry
I heard about the bad news today
It's really hard to get through
Tough times and long days
But it really just depends on the season

For now we'll say goodbye
We know it's not the last time
I've lost the best part of my day
But it's better where you're going anyway

This is the last thing
I will remember
It's better where you're going anyway

Fictional Driving

Why do drivers in movies and TV shows move the steering wheel back and forth despite the fact that the car is supposedly traveling straight?

(I thought this just happened in old programs and cartoons, but I've been seeing it on recent shows)

update to previous post/question

sorry I didnt reply to any of the helpful and thoughtful answers to my previous question but I completely forgot about it until now!

heres my original question:

http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/44448046.html

just a follow up question though to "queensugar" the last time I visited a drop in clinic to see a doctor for a check-up and a doctors note to excuse my absence from an exam I needed to show my province health card (which is my dads but im covered on it). So my question is an appointment and prescription (which I would pay for myself) they would not ask for the health card and thus my rents would not know? Just read your other comment about me having my own health number, so I am definately going to look into that, did not know. thankyou your comments were very helpful!

Also to "gnomestress" comment, would they really do a pregnancy test on me before I could get birth control, even if it was very obvious I wasent pregnant (I am not overweight, probably underweight by a doctors viewpoint)?

*this community is great, so glad i discovered it. and dont worry I wont be boring you with anymore bc questions, i think im all set!

1) I know London is insanely expensive. But I really don't know much else about the cost of living in other parts of England. What are some affordable places to live in England? We're talking "student who just finished college and wants to live in England for a year" affordable.

2) If you don't live in Europe: If you could move to any country in Europe, where would you go? If you do live in Europe: Where do you live, and do you like it there?

Earlier tonight, I was kicked out of my parents' house by my dad for the first time after a horrible fight. I am staying the night at a friend's house.
I really do not feel like going back tomorrow. Said friend will let me stay as long as I want but her family lives there too.
1. Should I just go back home, rent a motel or hotel room, or stay at my friend's? (If I don't go back home tomorrow, it's likely my parents will come hunting for me.)

2. Will a hotel/motel room take cash? What is the age limit of renting a room in California?

3. What is the last item you got for free?

Eta: Thank you the advice, I really, really appreciate it. I will take it in consideration but I'm not so sure what I should be doing.

My friend is really poor, and she just got a $700 hospital bill. She went and talked to them about it. She lives with her dad, but they said that as long as she pays rent and supports herself and all, she qualifies for Medical and won't have to pay it.

Then tonight, she got fired (for a dumbass reason). How is this going to affect the whole thing? What do the constitute as "proof that she supports herself"? Will they call her (former) job or what?

so, it's 6:30 in the morning and i am still awake. i've been in a bit of a rut and i don't see much difference between night and day right now, so i sleep when i want to. however, i'm moving soon and i know i should probably maintain that last bit of normalcy in my sleeping cycle that i have. i found, what sounds like, a stellar rummage sale about half a mile from where i live, but it starts at 8:00 (so, soon) and ends at 1:00. so what should i do now? should i:

a. go to bed now and get up at a semi-decent time and continue my day, or
b. stay awake and go to the rummage sale, knowing that i'll sleep well into the evening

How late do you have to be before you call the person you're meeting (or work, whatever)?

Do you call before you're late to say you're going to be late? Or do you call when you should be there to tell them you're running late? Or do you call when it's already obvious that you're running late?

I'm a cat, a kitty cat.

Have you ever successfully tamed a feral cat? Would you mind telling me about your experience?

I'm particularly interested in stories of older kittens/young adult cats, but any age cat is fine.

Also, are there any communities specifically dedicated to this subject? I searched under cat, and found a lot of general cat communities. I searched under feral and got a bunch of furry communities. *shudder*

You live in a small apartment building - there are only 4 apartments in it. One of your neighbors moved out and new people moved in. Within the week of them moving in, your landlord tapes a note to everyone's door saying that the new tenant is really, really allergic to onions, and could you please refrain from cooking with them.

If you don't eat/cook with onions, pretend it is something else that you cook with/eat regularily.

What would you say and/or do?

i has no musical talents :(

When I was in fifth grade, I couldn't wait to get to sixth grade so I could finally be in the band and play the saxophone. But when I tried out for band, I attempted to play the saxophone and couldn't make a sound! :*(

I wound up playing the clarinet instead, which I really didn't care for and never was very good at. After a couple years of being last chair on clarinet, I dropped out of band and haven't played my clarinet since.

But for some reason, I still have the damn thing. A teeny tiny part of me wishes I could play it, but realistically, I know I hate it and will never be good at it. Another teeny tiny part of me wonders if my son might wind up playing it some day, but as of now, he's almost 10 and has no interest in playing any musical instrument. (And how many boys play clarinet, anyway? I know when I was in band, ALL the clarinet players were girls.)

With all that in mind...

TQC, should I sell my clarinet?

Why does the idea of selling it make me so sad? How can I get over it?

Do you think people say they are "crazy" because they think it's "cool"?

What percentage of people who actually say they're "crazy" have been diagnosed with an actual psychotic disorder, in your observation or opinion? (anecdotal evidence welcomed)

On a scale of 1 - 10, if someone was diagnosed with a psychotic disorder, where would they fall?

EDIT: To clarify #3. On a Crazy Scale of 1 - 10, if someone were diagnosed with an actual psychotic disorder, where would they fall? 1 being NOT crazy or 10 being CRAZY!

1. Does this ever happen to you: You are in a large group of people where almost everyone is alone and silent immersed in thought/ trying to ignore eachother (packed bus, lecture, crowded elevator, etc), and you're thinking of something particularly shocking/scandalous and you look up and feel like you just said it outloud or that your thoughts are somehow being broadcast outloud, just for a second.. or more.

yes

2. Did you know that this (thinking your thoughts are being broadcast outloud) is a symptom of schizophrenia?

3. How crazy are you from 1 to 10?

Family drama, TQC!

My aunt (who I have not seen since I was, like, 2), is staying with my family for a few days. She keeps pulling me aside to "chat and catch up!" but all she does is talk smack about my mom. Then my mom overhears and they get into a fight. GAAAAH. She's here because my uncle died two weeks ago, and that's bad enough! The last thing I need is my aunt and my mom acting like five year olds!

What can I say to my aunt to make her shut up? I've already tried saying, "Oh, maybe later, Aunt Lordes, I have to do my homework." But then she guilt trips me. She's worse than my mom!!

And why aren't any of my friends picking up their phones? I need to get out of this house!

Can I come stay over at your house? ETA: I'll bake you cookies! Any kind of cookies that you want!

So since hardly anybody could think of a story where someone sacrifices their loved one in order to save others I just had to ask, is it so improbable that this might happen?

Do you think you would you be able to sacrifice your closest loved one (a child, SO, relative, friend, etc.) in order to save the rest of the world? How about a city full of people?

How many random people do you think would you be willing to let die for the sake of your loved one? I know this is kind of a loaded question but I am curious.

Guys, I'm being overpaid. I have an internship in the same hospital where I work but in a different department. It's paid, but it's supposed to be a lower rate than what I'm usually paid. Problem is, the new department is paying me my normal rate rather than the lower one. I've contacted payroll about it, talked to my boss twice about it, and payroll even contacted my boss and yet it hasn't been corrected.

Do I keep at it or decide I tried hard enough and enjoy the extra?

What should I do if they only show it in German?

a) Suck it up and watch it dubbed.
b) Download the English version.
c) Wait until the DVD comes out

Think about the next flight you might have to take.

If you had the option, would you be willing to fly between small airports in a twin-engine prop plane (example) flown by a properly trained and licensed pilot? Consider that you would not have to deal with TSA, you could keep your luggage with you (and not being charged extra for it), and you wouldn't have to park a million miles from the terminal, but you might be in the air longer and be delayed by weather that you can't fly over.

True or False?

Is the statement below true or false?

"Women don’t just like gifts; they like knowing that you (their boyfriends) were THINKING of them. The gift is a SYMBOL. Women feel the same amount of good inside whether it’s a card or a diamond (of course, the diamond lasts longer, so there are more ‘times of feeling good’!). But the fact is that women like to know that you’re thinking about them. Even if you’re telling a woman that you don’t like it that she was out with another guy, she’ll like it because it means you were thinking about her!"

I'm trying to work on some claymation movie I'm making and I need some help.  Part of it takes place with a little clay spaceship in outer space. I wanted to do this so that I cut and pasted the spaceship onto a real picture of stars in space.  The detail on the spaceship made it so that it is pretty much impossible for me to cut it out of the picture so it can be pasted on to the other, so I just left some space and made the background transparent. Only it's not showing up as transparent on the other picture I pasted it onto.  Anyone know any programs or ANYTHING to help me out?   I don't really have any decent picture editing programs on my computer.

How do you define alcoholism?

ETA: Do you think it's a fine line? If a person doesn't get drunk every day but drinks in excess when they do, is their drinking habit alcoholism or just .. heavy drinking? If you have a feeling they couldn't stop drinking even if they had a desire to, does that mean they're an alcoholic?

What would you do if you were eating at a restaurant with your 24 year old cousin and he decided it was completely acceptable to LICK HIS PLATE? Say something? Kick him under the table? Hide in shame?

hi tqc. its been a while.

Hey tqc. Here's the scenario:

I ended my friendship with my kinda ex-bestfriend (also my roommate) ten days before she was to move back to her home city for good. I really want nothing to do with her, and I've stated it to her as such (in nicer words) that I'd like to end the friendship. She said she wasn't angry/upset, but I know her too well to know that she was. I leave this Friday to go back to visit my mom, and I think she leaves either Sat or Sunday.

I'm kind of torn. My question is, should I say anything/do anything to her when I leave? One of my roommates says that I should because I'll never see her again. The other says just screw it, and don't think about her, and think of all the stress she's caused me. So. Suggestions?

Should I watch Big Brother in 6 minutes at 9.20pm or wait and watch it on C4+1 at 10.20pm?

I CAN'T DECIDE IF I CAN ACTUALLY BE BOTHERED TO GO DOWNSTAIRS RIGHT NOW.
You can tell how lazy I'm being as I'm asking you to make this decision for me :(

One of my friends that I'm not on very good speaking terms with right now has a pair of my pants. This wouldn't be a problem if I didn't own only three pairs of jeans right now. What do I do?! The last thing I said to him was along the lines of "I'm sorry you can't realize that I am doing the exact opposite of what you think I am, but if you choose to burn this bridge, this is the end."
Am I out of those pants forever?

Your last conundrum?
How many pairs of pants do you own?

It's my mom's birthday (I have no idea how old she is) and my brother told me to wrap a gift he got for her. We were out of birthday wrapping paper so I wrapped it with Christmas paper inside out so that the outside is just white.

Can you post an image or a link to a birthday related picture that I can draw on the paper?

Has to be clean, my mother is a  traditional cranky old Asian lady.

My boyfriend and I have put a deposit down on a flat. We'll be renting a beautiful furnished place, which we're totally in love with. The landlords are lovely, said we have free-range to do what we like as long as they flat isn't abused. It's a long-term lease.

Problem: My boyfriend and me have pets. Indoor small animals to be exact (a rabbit and guinea pigs) - but we haven't told the landlord. We've already paid the deposit and forgot about it. Should we tell them now and have them turn around and say 'oh no you can't move in now, no pets allowed' or just not tell them and hope for the best?

Okay guys. I have a new quandary. I am in the market for laptop. It does not need to be fancy as I have a desktop for storing extra crap. I really just need to take notes for school and surf the intertubes. I have found a computer that will suit those needs, but my boyfriend will not endorse this purchase because it is ~pink~. How can I change his mind? (Withholding sex has never worked and also, it is pretty much any color other than black, white, or grey- I suggested navy blue and he said that was stupid, too.)

ETA: Guys. I don't allow him to run my life. When I buy something that costs a good chunk of money and I don't know a lot about the object, I have him look it over first to make sure I'm not buying a money pit. Also, he doesn't like the pink because he says it might bee seen as unprofessional should I bring it to a work meeting or somesuch.


And also: I recieved a shot today as part of a tB test at Kroger's Little Clinic. The nurse practitioner did not use gloves. I should report this, y/n?
If y, who do I tell? I was too shocked to say anything to her.

How do you respond when your SO says they're going out driving with their cousin who brought drinks along for the ride?

I happened to be in a groggy state of mind so my response of "dfahgfdjg go away" while I was sleeping was probably not the right one.

Did you ever make a decision to wait until you were married to have sex? Why?
If you decided to wait but changed your mind, what changed?
If you waited or are still waiting, are you happy with your decision?

2)How do you feel right now?

Uncomfortable. I should have never had that dr. pepper.

3)what historical fiction should I read? I liked a year of wonders

For some really mysterious reason I love these shoes. Plus they come in the ever elusive 10.5 wide. I realize they are entirely hideous. I'm trying to come up with some situations in which I could wear them, so then I'll have a reason to buy them.

Where could one wear these shoes? Would you ever wear them?

Is there any halloween costume I could wear them with?

TQC, why did Netflix send me a DVD that was cracked from edge to center hole and taped up?

Is this a common occurrence or are they doing this because changing my shipping facility and confusing me wasn't enough?

Serious and non-serious answers, please and thanks. The latter is encouraged.

Oh, the joys of high school

So one of my 'friends' (Hah, not anymore) really upset me on Tuesday, and on Tuesday night I lost my voice. I was completely unable to speak in more than a whisper. No pain, no swelling, nothing.

Saw the doctor and a throat specialist on Friday who said there was nothing wrong with my vocal cords, that he sees this quite often, and that it's a stress thing. Like, the brain subconsciously stops the voice from working, even when you try to speak. He said when I get over whatever's distressing me, it'll come back. And it came back in like 2min because I was so relieved.

Has this (or something similar) ever happened to you? What happened?

I really want to learn American Sign Language.

1. Do you know any good websites you have used or would recommend (preferably with videos, not just pictures) to help me get introduced?

2. Also, I am cross dominant (left handed, write with the right). I want to learn to sign left handed, because it's easier for me, but is it more difficult to read ASL left handed, since most is right handed? Does that make sense?

3. For non ASL fans, what exciting adventures do you have planned this week/weekend?

What is something scandalous or bizarre you have found out about your relatives?

I recently found out my great grandfather was tried and acquitted of bank robbery.  The rest of the guys he was associated with who were also tried were all convicted.

1. Because I never actually read the fine print: what happens if you sell/trade a game to GameStop that was found out to be broken/faulty/not working after you signed the screen, knowing the game was faulty? (no, I haven't done this. Just curious).

2. Hershey, Cadbury, Dove? What's the best type of plain chocolate?

3. What's your all-time favorite commercial?
