Do you believe in karma or anything similar? Why or why not?

If you are a spiritual person, do you have any sort of statue/decoration/altar that is important to your spiritual life? What is it?

If you are spiritual, how often do you attend religious services/pray/meditate/commune with nature?

If you are not spiritual, what are the code of ethics, morals, or values that you try to live by?

Have you ever had a 'direct' experience with the Divine? Like a dream or feeling or miracle or event that happened that made you feel closer to The/a/Spirit?

What exactly do you believe in, anyway?

My best friend told me she found a Hello Kitty purse sitting in the school bathroom between classes. She looked inside it and all that was in there was 2 dollars. She took the 2 dollars, ditched the purse and bought a coke. Her confession was hilarious.

Okay or Not Okay ???

I have been watching the coverage of Hurricane Gustav on Fox News and every half hour or so the anchors encourage the public to send in their photos of the storm. They also remind viewers to be careful and make sure it is safe to do so.

Is it irresponsible for news programs to encourage the public to go out in the storm to take photos?

I know they say not to do anything stupid, but they show the pictures of the people doing stupid things. Isn't this encouraging the stupidity?

I like seeing the pictures of the storm from different locations, but wouldn't it be more responsible to not show the pictures where a persons life could be in danger?

Am I just over-reacting?


I know that Fox isn't the only news channel/program to do this, it is just what I am watching at the moment and a few of the pictures they showed on air concerned me.  Here are is a picture that concerned me www.foxnews.com/photoessay/0,4644,4979,00.html#17_550  there where a few that I view as being worse but I can not find them online.

I have a Canon Powershot A85, and I need a new memory card for it.

My other camera (a Kodak) takes this little tiny card that was around $25, and gave me 311 pictures. This camera takes a gigantor Compact Flash card, and when I went online to find similar ones, the cards ranged in price from $50 to $200. I thought this was a lot of money for a memory card, is it?

Is a 4GB card going to be enough space?
How many pictures does that hold?
Is it okay if I buy the cheap $47 card or am I going to die?

I am far from a photographer and just want to have enough room for pictures when I go on vacation in a few weeks. The camera is 4.0 mega pixels if that matters.

I go to college in Virginia, and my cellphone gets horrible reception most everywhere on campus (my service is AT&T) and my battery doesn't last as long as it usually does. My roommate's service is Verizon and she gets reception just fine, but her battery drains really quickly and she found out that it was because her phone is trying to pull service from Lexington (her hometown) instead of the town where the school is. She called *228 and fixed it the other day, and now it works just fine. Does AT&T have something similar? I hope that my problem is the same as hers and it's not just how AT&T is in this area, because it's awfully frustrating.
Peek!

In memory of...

OK, I see cars all the time with "In Memory of" and somebody's name and the years they lived. It's a fairly new thing (only been seeing it the past few years), so I don't entirely get it. Do you do that if you're driving the car that belonged to the deceased? Or if you used the life insurance proceeds to purchase that car? Does it mean the person's cremains are stored in that car and it's a mobile monument to that person? Or do you just do it because you miss the person? I only ever see one name, so I would think it would be hard to choose just one person if you'd lost multiple people who meant a lot to you.

Plz to share your insight, TQC?

Tattoo Protocol question

Skeleton_by_KintzPhotography 

I’m considering for my next tattoo getting the skeleton pirate holding the wheel from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. I really like the look of the painting they did of him on the original Pirates movie teaser poster.

But I don’t want a tattoo of the poster. I’d want an original drawing of that guy in the ride, but something dramatic and kickass like that.

Now, what I’m wondering is whether or not I should try and draw something up myself and go in and be like “tattoo this on me” or if I should come in and just tell them what I want and let the tattoo artist draw it up themselves. Or should I draw a rough idea, bring in photos of the guy and then let them expand on what I’ve done or what?

I want to be respectful of the artist, but I also have a pretty good idea of what I want. What do you think?

bitch, please.

TQC,

I am sitting in the library of my college next to two "preppie, trust fund, get everything they want" girls. they are currently, going through their facebook and talking about every flaw that they can find about each person. I just heard one of the girls say "omg, her boyfriend is so skinny. why would he date a fat ass like her. she's huuuuuuge!"  i'm almost positive they're talking about one of my friends.


when was the last time you wanted to jump across a table and stab someone with a pen?


EDIT: I tried 4 different recordings and they were talking too quietly for my phone to pick it up. sorry guys :(

As a Canadian I know very little about U.S. Holidays.
I know that the July 4th holiday is typically observed on the day it occurs. What happens when it falls on a weekend? Do employees, schools etc, basically businesses and services that would only be open Monday to Friday, get either the Friday or Monday off instead?

So, it turns out I've been neglecting my car, and it's punishing me by both leaking and burning oil. I can't afford to visit a mechanic this week, so I thought I'd top up the oil. Turns out there's more than one kind!

1. How do you know what type of motor oil to use in a car? (This car is a '92 Mazda Astina, 5-sp)

I'm living away from my hometown, and I've heard all this stuff about mechanics seriously overcharging single women for basic repairs.

2. Any tips on finding a mechanic who won't rip me off for having ovaries?

Also, life is a little stressful. Close friends are having major personal crises, I'm struggling to pay the bills, and I feel like I'm about to flunk out of law school. I'm living away from home in a college town with nice housemates that I don't know very well. My solution thus far has been, somewhat irrationally, to bake things.

3. How do you motivate yourself to do [school/uni/professional]
work you've got to do, when there're lots of upsetting life distractions?

3b. Can you recommend a better solution than baking for my life-panic?

4. Should I bake raspberry cheesecake slice even though I've got four essays due over the next two weeks?

Stupid lameass dating question

OK, so you're dating someone new.  4 dates, about a month all together.  You talk every couple days, and are pretty open with each other.  However, they seem to have a lot of friends of the opposite sex.  Since you're not exclusive, it's sort of weird to ask if they're girl friends, or dates.  But you ant to be with just this person, and it seems like they are serious about you. 

So:

1) How long/many dates do you go on before you "have the talk"?
2) What is a non-spastic way of bringing this up?  Just up front ("Are you seeing anyone else?" or subtly?)
3) How long do you wait before sexing it up with a new person?  I've always been easy in the past, but here it is a monh later and we've barely brushed second base!  We've talked about sex, but haven't gotten there yet.  But I have the feeling that when we do, it's going tobe a kick ass good time!  I'm prety sure date #5- next weekend- will take care of this one.  So I guess my answer to this one would be "5 dates, or just over a month)

(And in case any one remembers/cares. yes, this is the guy I went bowling with last month.  I wore jeans, and he thought I looked hot- it's a relief, really- I don't feel the need to look super put together all the time, since I didn't set the bar super high the first time)

4) In the end if I go for completing my degree, what are some signs to look for when judging if a school has a program thats worth a damn? If I find one with a good program, would a non-accredited technical school be a viable option as far as future employment goes?

Are you bored?

If you could do anything at this moment, anything at all, that would remove said boredom, what would it be?

On the flipside, are there any obligations you should probably be attending to right now?

Car issues. So earlier this summer I was having some issues with my starter fuse blowing rather frequently. I took my car to the dealership where they "fixed" it at a $80 charge. That was Aug 18. Today Sept 2, I go to start my car...and guess what, BLOWN FUSE.

Would you be severely pissed if this happened to you?
Should I go to the dealership tomorrow and bitch them out?
Do you think they'll re-fix this problem at no charge or will they be assholes and charge me again?

ETA: I want to add a question!

Can you tell me about one of your bad experiences with getting your car serviced/fixed?

textbooks =[

My schools website doesn't list all the info about required books. I'm pretty sure they do this to prevent people from ordering them online. I have all of the books I need except one. The bookstore's website gives the following info:
"INTRO TO POLITICAL SCIENCE
Used $68.00
New $90.00
Author:ROSKIN Edition:10"

Do you think that it's this book or not?

Some things about it don't add up (the prices, the title). The thing is my school has listed titles differently in the past so it's possible that's what is going on this time.

Would it be weird to email the professor and ask? I always feel weird about emailing professors, especially before I meet them.

Where do people get those icons that are cartoon people? I'm seeing them everywhere and I'd like to check it out.

Also, I get to take a shower! I'm in the hospital and apparently because I may need oxygen every once in a while, I need a doctor's order for this. I am extremely excited that I can finally shower. When was the last time you took a shower?

I have a day/night out planned for my birthday in just over a week, I'm planning on wearing a pair of heels.

I haven't worn any in years...so going from that to wearing them for around 10 hours is gonna hurt like hell.

How do I go about making this as painless as possible? I was thinking about wearing them so often every day for the next week or so, what do you think?

taco salad

1. How do you make your taco salad?

My family has always made it with fritos, dennisons chili, grated cheddar, lettuce and tomato... but it didn't occur to me until I was at least adult aged that those ingredients don't even resemble a taco. Awesome together, yes; but taco, no. Now I'm embarrassed to call it taco salad even though that's what I've always called it!

2. What should I call this fritos/chili/cheese concoction if not taco salad?
