magical tattoos plz

Let's say tattoos only lasted for 3 years before magically disappearing. What little symbols would you get tattooed on you?

(I keep on thinking that I'd get Wario and some little red slippers on my arm... and maybe a barbed wire. Tacky ftw!)

Do you ever get that feeling where you feel as if you're moving/swaying ever so slightly?

When you're just falling asleep to you ever have that state where you're sort of dreaming but it's not a deep sleep so you're half away of whatever may be going on around you or you drift in and out of the dream?

Okay, lets just say you have $12,000 to spend and no chance of financing. You have no car and really really need one for work/school!! What would you buy with your $12,000?

House of 1000 corpses

Last question for a while:

If you've ever seen House of a 1000 Corpses, there is a barely noticeable scene where the camera cuts away from an old man's eye to a crime scene right before they bust Otis and his friends, I believe. In the cut, if you look mad-hard, you'll find some cartoonish figures in his eye as it cuts away. What are they? I've watched and rewatched this film several times, and still can't make it out. No. I'm not halucinating. Something is there. I don't have the exact time on the video handy either. :(

Have you ever gone through a period where a lot of the food you know you like is just not very enjoyable?

Is such a phase symptomatic of some greater dissatisfaction with your life or wut?

When you hear someone say "original Olympics", which Olympics do you think of? The ancient Olympics or the 1896 Olympics?

I got a bugbite over 2-3 weeks ago, I didn't scratch it once and yet my skin is slightly darker where I got the bite. I did a google and apparently its not a rarity but it sounds like it should be gone by now. I'm annoyed.

My hair has always been straight but like a year ago it started to curl. At the beginning there was just a light wave, and then after like 2 months my hair from the tips of my ears up was straight and below that was just a huge mass of curls. I cut off my ponytail in December. Now my hair is starting to get corkscrews and they're wonderful but they're not really too corkscrewy. And they differ everyday. Some days they're curly and other days there is barely a wave.
Is this normal? I have never had curls so this is all new crap for me. I have no clue if this is how curly hair works.
How can I get the curls to curl a little bit more? I started using a curl enhancing shampoo/conditioner once I noticed I was getting curls, but I was curious if there is a way to dry the hair that helps the curls to curl. Something. Anything. Thank you in advance

Do you ever use the term "Drug store"?

My parents call it the drug store, and for some reason, in my head, "drug" is something illegal, and they are not going to a store to buy like, ten E pills lol It just bothers me..
I just say pharamcy, or the name of the store, although I usually say "eckerds" because that was the name of the pharmacy I used for a very long time before they were bought out.

I just read about this jamaican sprinter competing in the olympics who tested positive for a banned substance... He claims he had never taken drugs in his life, which makes me wonder;

If for whatever reason you wanted to ruin someones olympic dreams by spiking their food or drink with steroids or some other banned substance, would this work? And has there ever been any cases of it happening?

I could totally see this happening if 2 people were fighting for olympic selection and one made it through and the loser, being bitter about losing, decided to sabotage the winners career.

In this semester's Biology class, the professor has requested we buy the sixth edition of the book, that is about $120. The fifth edition, I can get online for about $30. Do you think I would be all right buying the fifth edition, or should I bite the bullet and purchase the sixth? From what I've heard, she tests mostly off notes, so the book isn't too necessary. (the sixth edition is 2007, fifth is 2005).

TQC,

I am buying a house and moving in the near future. The thing is, I love my job and they love me, but I don't know if I'll stay.

Is $8.65 an hour working as a cashier good enough pay to commute 20 minutes to work 4-5 hours a night?

Additional information:
I don't drive, so my husband would have to drop me off and pick me up every night. I could conceivably get a ride home on some nights because a boy I work with already lives out that way. I can't get a real full time job until fall of next year when my son starts kindergarten. Minimum wage is $6.15 an hour, gas is $3.57 a gallon and my car gets 28-32 mpg and the drive is approx 14 miles.

so does this mean that i can't sign into my email anymore because it's not a Windows Live address?? is anyone else having problems? i have six emails and it's making me insane not being able to check them.

2) Is it still worth going into debt if your major is in the Art (such as Graphic Design, Photography, and/or Advertising) field?

3) For those who have graduated and are thousands in debt, were you able to find a job and a plan were it isn't keeping you awake at night/how long will it take before you pay it off?

4) What do you think are some of the best Business/Advertising/Art Universities that you would recommend (with preferably on campus living)?

Today my allergist told me I have oral allergy syndrome. Have you ever heard of this? Do you or anyone you know have the same problem?

Do you have any allergies, other than pollen or dander? I'm allergic to cantaloupe, honeydew, and bananas, apparently.

If you've ever been tested for food allergies, did the results surprise you at all? I know I was shocked to test positive for corn, rice, soy, egg white, and almond allergies, since I've never had a reaction to any of those.

What's the part that sucks most about your allergies? I hate that I love cantaloupe but can't have it anymore, and I'm gonna miss banana bread like crazy. But I'm lucky; at least it's easy to avoid this stuff.

Okay, so when I was a kid I learned that when you chew up food, it goes to your stomach to be dissolved in digestive juices. Then, before it moves to the intestine it must pass through the pyloric sphincter. This little sphincter's job is to kick back anything solid so it can continue digesting.

Now maybe I just got the Magic Schoolbus version of human digestive education, but how is it then that people eat everything from Monopoly pieces to Barbie shoes and then they just have to wait until it "passes"? Wouldn't the sphincter never allow stuff like that to pass, or does it depend on size? I mean it's not like indigestible foreign bodies stay in your stomach forever. Help me Dr. Internet.

I sense some tension...

My roommate's girlfriend, who doesn't even live here, just asked me if I would mind loading up the dishwasher after  they were done with dinner.  I told her that I didn't mind, because I don't and I was planning on doing dishes in a couple of hours anyway.  It's just a weird request because of the way she said it (her tone), the fact that neither my boyfriend and I are included in this dinner and use of dishes (he's at work until later, and we do our own dinner thing anyway), and the fact that they don't have any plans after dinner so they'll be here and able to do their own dishes.  I'm not sure what to make of this, or if I should say something. 

I have the feeling they're complaining and talking stuff behind my back, and I'm sure it has something to do with my roommate because I've heard him talking stuff behind my back before on several occassions.  My boyfriend and I just got back from vacation, and we cleaned the house really well before we left... straighted up, vacumned, took out the trash, did dishes, and all that good stuff.  We haven't really made any sort of mess since we've gotten back because we haven't been here much.  We've been eating out a lot as well, and there were only a few of our dishes in there at the moment.  We do most of the cleaning here, so they shouldn't have a problem with that, but her tone definitely says otherwise.  I don't mind doing the dishes, but I don't want some problem or tension to develop because they won't speak up and bring up concerns or issues that they might have.

What do you think, TQC?  What would you do?
