A friend found me on Facebook and I was looking at his photos. He has a pic of his back to show off his tramp stamp. That feels wrong to me.
What is the worst genre of music EVER?
What type of porn would you rather watch?
Out of the following, what do you dislike?

Where would you never NEVER place a tattoo?
I (jokingly) told one of my friends that I wanted to get a ladybug tattoo behind my ear, and she basically responded that if we weren't talking over IM, she would have smacked me.
Should I just buy an iPhone 3G instead?
What should I do tomorrow to celebrate? (not passing it, but finishing it)
I say tomorrow, because now I'm going to go sleep.

You and best friend plan a trip for 3/4 months.
Best friends finances stop her from going. Best friend backs out 2 weeks before trip.
Day after coming back from trip, Best friend informs you that she is going on a trip with her boyfriend in a month.
How would you react to this?
Would you confront best friend about it?
*Edit: Best friend mentioned boyfriend would pay, but best friend also mentioned that boyfriend had no money at all when it was suggested that the boyfriend could go to the original trip.*
Been looking everywhere on the net but I can't find anything like them.
On October 1st it will be exactly one year since I adopted my ( Collapse ). What should I get him for our first anniversary? He's very afraid of squeaky toys and picky with his food. Any home made treats your dog loves?
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
Anybody successfully quit smoking? I'm in dire need of some advice, man.
Looking for a few good book recommendations!
I found a preview of a really cool comic on Scans_Daily that was part of a Top Cow contest where people voted online for which comic out of six that they wanted to get an actual series. One of those that sadly didn't make it was a little number called "Urban Myths." The whole thing is just what is says on the tin: urban myths. Roman and Greek mythology plopped right down in the big city with a good heaping dollop of detective noir.
Quickie Scans_Daily preview here.
Nice full and legal issue here, on Newsarama.
And... it totally didn't win.
So are there any comics, manga, novels, cartoons, whatever that fall into a similar genre? Mercede Lackey's SERRAted Edge novels edge kinda close, but are more of a "Humanity must never know!" urban fantasy. The Hellboy comic mythos is even closer, but falls short of the whole, "Crap, the naiad upstairs is getting waterspots on the ceiling again," that "Urban Myths" seemed ready to set up.
Seriously. Up for anything kinda close to "Urban Myths" genre-wise.
Also, for extra brownie points, paranormal romance novel recommendations that don't focus on some permutation of vampires or werewolves. Werecat... thingies... count as werewolf permutations. All the freaking mythology to work with and people keep coming back to variations on vampires and werewolves!
the ex sex from this post ended much better than i thought it would!
re-ay ou-yay ored-bay as-ay I-ay am-ay?
My hand is starting to tingle, and it hurts... alot..

I wear my Converse All-Stars more than anything else...'cept my motorcycle boots.
What are you wearing right this moment?
Jeans, boots, blue dress shirt
Where are you?
Do you have any kind of family heirloom that is in your personal possession now?
I have my grandad's and my dad's dogtags. I have one of each on a ball chain that I wear all the time, and the other set is in a safe deposit box.
I also have my great-grandfather's shotgun, and my grandad's revolver from when he was in the Army pre-WWII.
Do you think sugar free "sweets" are good or a disappointment?

which would you choose?
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, Cofounders
Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc.
Dear Mr. Cohen and Mr. Greenfield,
On behalf of PETA and our more than 2 million members and supporters, I'd like to bring your attention to an innovative new idea from Switzerland that would bring a unique twist to Ben and Jerry's.
Storchen restaurant is set to unveil a menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75 percent breast milk procured from human donors who are paid in exchange for their milk. If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers-and cows-would reap the benefits.
Using cow's milk for your ice cream is a hazard to your customer's health. Dairy products have been linked to juvenile diabetes, allergies, constipation, obesity, and prostate and ovarian cancer. The late Dr. Benjamin Spock, America's leading authority on child care, spoke out against feeding cow's milk to children, saying it may play a role in anemia, allergies, and juvenile diabetes and in the long term, will set kids up for obesity and heart disease-America's number one cause of death.
Animals will also benefit from the switch to breast milk. Like all mammals, cows only produce milk during and after pregnancy, so to be able to constantly milk them, cows are forcefully impregnated every nine months. After several years of living in filthy conditions and being forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally, their exhausted bodies are turned into hamburgers or ground up for soup.
And of course, the veal industry could not survive without the dairy industry. Because male calves can't produce milk, dairy farmers take them from their mothers immediately after birth and sell them to veal farms, where they endure 14 to17 weeks of torment chained inside a crate so small that they can't even turn around.
The breast is best! Won't you give cows and their babies a break and our health a boost by switching from cow's milk to breast milk in Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Thank you for your consideration.
Executive Vice President
So I ask, which flavor of Ben & Jerry's do you think would taste best if made with breast milk?
If I have a headache, stuffy nose, and sore throat, what do you think is the best medicine I can go buy from CVS on my way to work so they don't have to send me home early? :(
If you care not about my terrible sickness, what's wrong with my puppy? He holds up his back leg when he walks around like a little tripod. We looked at it and put a little pressure on it, but he doesn't upset or hurt or anything. Been like this for a week and we're taking him to the vet today (payday).
Will you post the lyrics?

Do you think my dedication is weird? I was told that it's weird to dedicate that song to your offspring since its a "love" song. I didn't feel that it was particularly mushy..! :O Validate me!

1. What's the best/funniest quote anyone's ever said about you? What was the context?
"You remember Murf. The tall, mid-height, short guy with the brown, sandy-blonde, reddish hair...one eye...walks with a limp." - guy on a paintball forum...I'm pretty sure there was no context
"Murf, what has SCP done to you? All you think about now is beer and women." - guy on the same paintball forum (Stockclasspaintball...hence "SCP") responding to my thread talking about that beer they made from fossil yeast
"Clint is the most heroic human being ever...he saved my life with his mad SWAT skills." - friend called me one night when she was home alone and thought there was someone else in the house
My last car died. Dead and gone. It was flooded a year and a half ago and the electrical system spent all that time since rotting away to nothingness. Now it won't start anymore and it'd be a VERY expensive fix to rewire everything. That on top with the other expensive fix it needed, I decided to let it be dead and get something else.
I don't have much credit and I don't make much so I started looking for really cheap cars so I wouldn't have to take out a big loan. A friend of the family was selling his 98 Chevy Lumina for 2k. It needed AC work so I took out 3k and bought the car. It was a long process and I never felt right about it but I was kind of desperate.
I got the car yesterday. Yay, joy, I have transportation, even if it really doesn't... feel right... but I often ignore gut feelings to do what needs to be done and this was no different. I drove it around a bit today, picked up a friend, ran a few errands. On the way home last night... IT DIES. At a stop light. Which, by the way, my LAST car did... twice... in the EXACT SAME WAY.
I freaked, called the seller to bitch, but he was very reasonable and nice and came over to where I was immediately, as did another couple of friends I called. Seller did not have the tools to uncover the battery so he could try to jump it so I just went home to wait, nervous that it was NOT a battery issue, and once again I was faced with a giant electrical problem.
Turns out it WAS just the battery.
Thing is, TQC... I have the 3k check back now while the seller fixes the battery problem, but... I'm not so sure I want the car back. I'm not big into "omg it's a SIGN" sort of stuff but this hasn't felt right for a while and now it DEFINITELY doesn't. I don't know what to do at this point.
NON TL;DR VERSION: TQC, my old-new car died the first day I had it and I didn't really want the car in the first place and now I don't know if I want to keep it or give it back and look for something more reliable.
Should I tell the seller to forget it and find some one else? Can I just send the check back to USAA and tell them it didn't work out and figure out what the biggest/most affordable-for-me loan is that they can give me so I can start shopping for something more reliable (with much better gas mileage than this thing)?
Or should I suck it up and take this car back and deal with whatever problems it has?
Swing, waltz, rumba, foxtrot, tango, chacha, salsa, samba, balero (sp?)
- Pancakes (I made them fresh a few days ago and froze them and they are still delicious), I have chocolate chip and apple cinnamon
- Kashi Strawberry Fields cereal
- a toasted everything bagel with onion + chive cream cheese
HELP ME TQC, YOU'RE MY ONLY HOPE
2. If at the age of 14 you find out you were swapped at birth, and your current parents are nice, kind, and loving people but are extremely poor (struggling to get clothes, food, etc) and your biological parents come knocking at the door and say if you come live with them they will give you everything (due to being really rich, plus they're also really nice people), who would you live with? The stipulation is whichever household you choose, you can never see the other parents again ever.

Have you ever posted on TQC (or elsewhere on the 'net) or texted while completely drunk off your ass? What'd it say?
I just found out on a website that there are several child molesters, sodomizers and attempted murderers within a mile radius of my address!
Maybe I'm an idiot, but I'm not really used to the term "sodomizers". Wouldn't a "sodomizer" traditionally be a gay person? Or is it an updated version of the word that defines a rapist? If it is a rapist, wouldn't they just use the word rapist? Half of what I've found on google in reference to this is biblical and the legal stuff describes everything from bestiality to just plain anal.
so my question is: wtf is a sodomizer that someone would get a criminal record about it???
(btw, I'd like to thank the state of Pennsylvania and it's complete lack of a sex education program when I was a kid for me not knowing this.)
I have known people who had the distinct smell of having not bathed in SEVERAL days and obviously never washed their clothes when they could have. And they are not mentally ill. WHY do they do this?

Would you ever go on a talk show without knowing what secret your loved one wished to reveal?

The final scene when Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) joins the witness protection program and has to move, he goes out to get his paper in the morning and when he looks at the camera they show Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) shooting a gun at the camera, in a dark setting. At this point, Tommy has been dead for some time. Is this to symbolize the fact that the mafia did actually "whack" him because he had to give up the glorious life he was living or is it something else.
PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE help me!

i've lost almost all of my add ons and now the LJ login add on won't work. >:|
Were there any other similarly strange (at least in modern perception) positions/titles like this?
On an unrelated note, you have the opportunity to exchange your dominant sense (sight) for one of the other four senses (for touch, think a rat's whiskers; for taste, consider a snake's tongue). You won't be blind, but your vision will be fairly useless-- picture being very myopic, but able to make out movement/light/large shapes, and it's not correctable. Would you do it? Which sense would you take and why? How do you think the change would effect your day-to-day life, both positively and negatively?
Srs and non-srs answers welcome.

Some woman just cornered me on my way out of the washroom (I was practically pinned against the wall) to ask about my bridge piercing. She told me all about her son who is a tattoo artist who apparently hides his piercings while at work (which I don't understand). She asked me if piercings were similar to accupuncture. It was mainly uncomfortable because she was less than a foot away from my body.
Also: while on vacation this summer I was wandering in downtown Avalon and was stopped by a
