For my beginners jewelry/metalwork class I'm supposed to have five different design options for each project in my sketch book.  I suck majorly at drawing.  Do you think he's just looking for the general idea or should they be super intricate drawings?

i like my best friend :(

well yeah, she already knows, its been like this for like 2 years or so. We kinda just push it to the side because she has a bf and i kinda want what's best for her... or let her do her own damn thing. last night i had a dream of us kissing in grand central and i don't know what to make of it. Its very rare that i have dreams about us being together. Should i tell her? Have you ever had a crush on ur best friend? what happened?

Geek question!

For those of you who play roleplay games, be they the tabletop kind, the single player video game kind, the MMORPG kind, the LARP kind, whatever....... what is your "type?" What sort of character do you like to play, no matter the setting? What sort of classes and races are always your favorite? Or are you more likely to mix it up and play something completely different every time?

Me, I love stealth classes. There's just something really fun about being so stealthy I don't have to be all that strong. Plus being a backstabbing jerk is great. ;) I also tend to play really short races for some reason. Gnomes, Halflings, Hobbits, that sort of thing. I don't know, I think I just like being cute but deadly.

best tactic?

My son of a bitch boyfriend cheated on me, and I decided to give him a second chance.

I would say to him, "If you ever do this again, I will fucking dump your ass."

But in our (slightly complicated) situation, that might not be the best thing to say, because I'm not 100% sure that he'd consider me that much of a loss right now. I want to keep him on his toes, but I don't want to turn him off.

What's a good threat to use?

EDIT: People~~! I really appreciate your concern, but really now! My question hasn't been answered! I'm not looking for relationship advice here... like I said, it's complicated; I'm not necessarily a dumb bitch with no clue. I've been cheated on before where I dumped the fucker without a look back, but I've decided I'm going to keep this one (like I said, it's complicated!). No more validation/explanation necessary... thanks for the commiseration though. But doesn't anyone have an answer to my actual question?

For the coffee/tea/morning hot beverage drinkers (said beverage hereby referred to as coffee):

Do you brew your own coffee at home/work, or do you buy a prepared drink most of the time?

If you buy your coffee, do you bring your own reusable mug, or do you just get a disposable one? Have you ever considered getting/using a reusable mug? Why did you decide against it?

Have you guys seen that trend of home crafted reusable coffee sleeves? They're touted as a good way to personalize your coffee cup and create less waste. This strikes me as stupid because they're a reusable add on for a disposable product. Most of the waste is in the cup and lid. Has this occurred to anyone else?

Do you know of any other products like this, that claim to be reducing waste but actually enable waste?

What about science do you refuse to believe?

I refuse to believe that Pluto is not a planet. But that's mostly because my mnemonic device doesn't work if it's not. :-( And I generally root for the little guys.

I hate talking to people

My mom is trying to make me call her. She gives me a date and tells her I must call her on that date. Last time I worked out a time that would be convenient for me to call her, but this time she is trying to make me call her at 9 p.m. I use the phone at work because there is a land line and that gives me the best rate for my calling card. I go to bed around ten, usually, and I'm not going to come to work that late. And while there is a land line available at my apartment it's my landlords' and I have no idea if they would be charged because calling card companies really like to sneak extra fees in.

Also, my mom is making me pay for all the calls and even told me that I needed to call from my cell phone (which already charges me a ridiculous monthly amount and then charges me extra for doing things like accidentally going on the internet for two seconds) if I had to. And that would almost definitely end up costing me a load of money.

What should I do about this?

Does anyone understand what I mean when I say that I love animals I just don't want to really have to take care of them, or touch them..or see them?

I'm not a hater, I just don't want them near me, animals should be out THERE, not staring at me while I eat.

My friend said I obviously don't like kittens just because I said I don't want to touch or see them.

And I want to make salmon for dinner or some sort of fish dish, what should I make? I'm out of ideas.

OK republicans, conservatives, people who don't think Obama should be in power. We know you're out there, we know you feel outcasted and shunned because you are not of The Way The Hope Brigade. So here's your chance.

Please let me know,
Why is your candidate the better candidate? You don't have to name your candidate if you don't want to. Just let me know, why is yours better? If you're list is to long, would you list the top 5 reasons?

Why should I NOT vote for Obama? And again, if we're talking about going on and on and on, would you list the top 5 reasons?

Since we not only vote for Presidents but also Vice-Presidents, why is your VP the better candidate? If you feel like Ramblin' Rose, would you list only the top 5 reasons? If you're preferred candidate has not/did not choose a VP, who would you like to see as only a "hearbeat away from the presidency"?

Now let's get negative. What are the top 5 issues that are holding the Democrats back? What prevents them from being the party that you want to go to?

Saturday is my best friend's wedding. I'm his best man and I'll be giving a speech at the reception. I've been assured that all the old folks that will be there have bad hearing and I've been given permission by both bride and groom to say whatever I want.

A couple years ago (before he met his soon-to-be-bride)he was complaining about not meeting the right women and stated, "I just want to find a girl that will let me stick my penis in her." It just happened to be spoken at a coffee shop, and loudly enough that EVERYONE there heard. We've teased him about it since.

Can I make a reference in my speech along the lines of being happy for him that he finally found a woman that'll let him stick his penis in her?

Or is that one of those, "You can say anything you want, but don't say that" kind of things?

Or, should I just stick to the whole sentimental route and see how many people I can make cry?

ETA: I don't think I could say the whole penis thing in front of his parents and her grandparents anyway. Also, as *daha* pointed out, if he wouldn't say it (and he's saying he wouldn't), that's a great gauge to determine that I shouldn't say it either. As in, Even *daha* won't say it? Damn, avoid that shit, yo.

What stressed you out this week?

This is SERIOUSLY bothering me

I can't decide what to do about my internship. My contract is from August 1, 2008 to August 31, 2009 so I still have eleven months to go, although I can terminate the contract if I so choose.

I have been working here for seven weeks and:
a. I haven't really learned anything or felt I had a "purpose" here
b. I feel like the entire time I've been here has been a waste of time and I really have not enjoyed it at all, ever
c. I vacillate between wanting to quit and thinking I could stick it out and possibly tolerate the job but not once have I actually enjoyed or liked it
d. I haven't really been able to "feel", if that makes sense - my experiences are giving me neither highs nor lows, I'm just sort of surviving
e. In general, my job is nearly pointless. I do less than an hour's worth of work almost every day, and it's not because I'm slacking, there just actually is nothing for me to do
f. I want to go home like whoa

So even though I keep telling myself that it will get better it has shown no signs of getting better at all and not one single moment have I thought that I am currently in a better situation than I was back home.

Should I seriously contemplate quitting at this point or should I tell myself that it'll "only" be eleven more months and then I will have had the satisfaction of completing what I started?

If there is the possibility of me not quitting should I bring any of these issues up to my supervisor(s) since my problems have very little to do with the job and almost entirely have to do with the fact that it simply is not "my thing"?

This is a long shot, but does anyone know the name of the board game that was developed by researchers trying to create a better chess program? They developed some kind of notation or paradigm for expressing the difficulty a computer would have predicting an opponent's moves in chess. Then they used that paradigm to design a game that would be even harder for computers to play, but still simple for a human to understand. I think there were four different kinds of pieces, and the original set had them styled after Egyptian gods. [Edit: fieryphoenix saves the universe once again]
