George died four years ago. He wanted to be buried at his country house, but his wife, Vera, buried him in the city with their adult children (who had died during George's long illness.) Sofiya, George's sister, got very angry and Vera for not burying George where he wanted to be buried, and the two haven't spoken since. Recently, Sofiya's husband died. He was pretty close with Vera, and was a pretty cool guy. Vera was NOT invited to the funeral and is very upset about it. Vera's grandchildren received no formal invitation to the funeral, but were e-mailed the information with the note, "attend if you please."
1. Who is more wrong? Who should apologize first?
2. What should the grandchildren do- attend the funeral and make their grandmother, Vera, sad, or not go and miss the funeral of someone they really liked?
3. Are you a forgiving person?
honestly, do any of you females have one boob that is a little bigger than the other?
If it matters, I'm a math major.

I know most American TV network websites don't allow non-domestic viewers to watch shows on line, and my friend really wants to watch this show, but she'll be going away soon. I have no idea if RTE are bothered about international viewership though, so I thought I'd ask for help.

2. Pretend I blew up the school...all the schools. Now that you're dead, what are you gonna do with your life?
I'm greeted with silence
no words left to say
yet my mind is racing with questions.
To live again
remember how to breathe
waiting for the right moment.
Ride the high as long as you can
don't look down
Rock bottom is close behind
Trying to live in oasis
carefree, cool and calm
fooling everyone around you.
They don't ask, you don't tell.
swallow the key to your soul
it belongs to no one
keep your date with destiny
and she'll be good to you
don't count the days
slap on that smile
put on some shoes
for tonight you will dance.
you have been through a wide range of addictions in your life cutting, drinking, pill popping, sex, anorexia, binge eating, bulimia etc.
And you have pretty much cut out all of that except for the cutting
and lets say recently you got back into cutting right cause you dont want to have a bulimic relapse
but is that an ok kinda thing?
i mena doesnt everyone need SOMETHING to keep them going?
espically if its preventing a relapse?
EDIT PT2: ok how do yuo deal with these stressful situations?
whats is a healthy coping mechanism?
Bored out of our minds, a friend and I "interest" searched "Top Gun" and a community came up about Scientology, fantasy/pilot fandom, and a "WE LOVE MEG RYAN" community.
What's the funniest/ most weird community you've seen on lj?
7:1 Then the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. 2 Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals,  the male and his mate, and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate, 3 and seven pairs  of the birds of the heavens also, male and female, to keep their offspring alive on the face of all the earth
1. How many frikkin' members of each species is Noah bringing on board the ark exactly? 16? 2?
2. For the animals that were considered unclean to begin with, like the cloven-hooved beasts, did God just let them all drown? If so, how do we have bacon today?
3. Is it possible for an old man with limited resources and limited means of travel to track down and capture members of every species on earth, including critters in Canada and Austrlia?
4. Assuming the bible passage above declares 'seven pairs of all clean animals and 1 pair of unclean' of each species subject to flood rescue, how large would a vessel have to be to hold 16 of each kind, including elephants, hippos and rhinos?
20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
5. How large would a fire have to be to burn 2 of every species on the planet?

SRS ANSWERS PLZ.

Does it make sense for me to email him and ask him to expound? Doesn't that almost seem like a given? He might do so in class on Tuesday, but we have another paper coming up and I'd like to know what I did wrong so I can improve for the next paper.
How do I word this email so I don't sound like I'm bitching at him?

No, but really folks. In retrospect, do you wish you had lived your life differently up to this point?
i have a crush on this guy who works at the bar me and my friends like to go to and we're really friendly 'cause we've got a couple things in common. but i have no idea if he's just doing his job and making friends with the customers or it's maybe a little more than that.
I had a friend whose doctors put him on anti-depressants and assured him that he would only need them for a very short period of time, just as sort of a jump-start to him feeling better. I'm not entirely sure how long he ended up staying on them, but I didn't realize before that this was an option.
I would be willing to go on anti-depressants if I knew I wouldn't have a life-long dependency on them.
I don't feel well :(
I was thinking like a treasure chest of costumes for her to dress up in? But since her birthday is a week before Halloween I figured that might get expensive.
Any ideas on how to go through with this?
Any other ideas?
ETA: Any idea on where to get a cool box/chest to put it in? I don't mind decorating it myself or anything, I just want something that will last and not just a regular square cardboard box. Something that opens like a chest.
No prefix or suffix "XxX"
And also, no numbers.
It seems the general consensus is that there is usually one person who loves the other more. Assuming thats the case, do you find that you're ALWAYS the one that loves more or ALWAYS the one that is loved more? Or does it change depending on who your SO is?
I feel like in relationships I always love less than I'm loved and I always feel guilty about it. But when it comes to friends and family I feel like I love *way* more than they do. I throw myself into my family and put them before everything. But thats a whole other topic....
I'm going to see Cake tonight. How much money should I bring for merch?
I ordered shoes from Nordstrom and selected to pick them up since it's only 5 minutes away. However they didn't say where to pick them up. If any of you have ever done this, do you pick your stuff up in the department it's from, or at customer service? What if you order multiple things from different departments?

For $2,500, would you crash a kid's birthday party at the park, and climb into the bouncy house (where all the kids are jumping happily) wearing ice skates and destroy the blow-up castle? The kids will cry and the birthday will be utterly ruined for that one birthday boy. You'll get away scot-free guarranteed
You get away and then are given another option. For $2,500, take the hired clown's place (under the maketup) and spend the full hour heckling and insulting the birthday boy in front of his friends? Mock his sexuality, accuse him of being adopted and that he secretly likes playing with Barbie dolls. All the kids will laugh at his expense and you'll probably ruin his life to some extent. You get another $500 if you make him cry
Finally, at the end of the party, there will be a water balloon catching contest. All the kids lined up in 2 rows and toss the balloon between them, and take a step back, and do so again, and repeat until someone has the balloon burst over them. Now, for $2,500, would you be willing to switch out the water balloons with ice balloons? Let's assume the kids aren't very bright and won't pick up on the added density. Good chance kids will get hurt, but nobody will see you switching the balloons
I've been in a romantic mood lately, so anything romantic or comedy-romance.
When was your last road trip? Any interesting stories to tell about road trips?

You venture down into Hell, and notice that he's really livened up the place-- he even installed curtains. But you seen your [whatever] hanging there over a bit of fire and AIDS ready to be turned into some multi-armed whore for Satan's minions/a sponge/a potato. He demands revenge and a rematch, and he demands it be done with Magic: The Gathering, because he just made this really cool deck and he wants to try it out. You, however, are armed with The Jesus Gun©.
1- Use The Jesus Gun© and shoot Satan in his unholy bastard chest?
2- Play Magic because Magic is awesome?
3- Taunt Satan further by defeating him in a pokémon battle with Dark Charizard?
4- File a restraining order against Satan so he'll stop bugging you while Wheel of Fortune is on?
5- Beat him to death with a jug of milk?
6- Double-click the power cord?
7- Leave your [whatever] because this is too much shit to deal with?

Every so often my family freaks out that I have a tumor in my head, because there's a family history of cancer and because I've suffered migraines since I was four - the kind of migraines that are more like seizures than headaches. There's nothing wrong with me other than migraines, but I get pressured to go in for scans every now and again.
2) If so what are they?
3) Do you take medication for them? And if so, what kinds, and did it help?
2) I break words down into the letters, that are the number three in some way, somehow. It's hard to explain typing out. I do it more when I'm upset, and will figure out ways to break the word down, like I have little 'cheats'. And then we these are the number three, it's OKAY and it becomes zero, and is complete. It's hard to describe.
I know this is bad, because there are times when I'm so stressed I can't sleep, and I keep doing this, or all I can focus on is the words people are saying by breaking them down. So I get annoyed when people assume I'm OCD because I like things clean. I'm not a clean fanatic, I just like things clean.
3) No. I just always assumed it was 'part' of me, but lately I've been wondering about getting meds, or help.
ETA: I aren't goodz with words 'n stuffz. =( x 1000
ETA2: I explained in a comment, sorta, how mine works.
The word: dog.
Now there's different ways to do it. And this will be long, since I'll space it to try to explain the cheats.
DOG - The D is 2, because it's a letter and has a closed portion, a 'whole'. O is also a 2. G is a one. So that would be 5. Then the word itself can count as one number, so DOG = 6 which = 3 which = 0.
Now if it's dog it's different. dog = 8, because d = 2, o = 2, but g = 3 (if I want it to, sometimes I'm okay with it being 2) because it has a hole AND it has a drop. Then if you count the word, which I normally have to do, it's 8. If I don't count the word, or the drop on the g, it can be 2, so then dog would = 6 = 3 = 0.
There are a lot of other things, but my mind does it automatically, and if it's too pressuring then I may have to think of ways to make the words equal 3, so they can equal 0.
Now, if it's a sentence it can be different, sometimes I can capitalize letters at the beginning to make it equal 3, sometimes I can't. It's just I'll know when it's okay, and when it's not.
I do not. They seem fancily done, ie. demonstrating their use of photoshop, but don't actually look any good, or convey what the original picture did.
I was looking for some amusing Star Trek: TNG icons. Do you know of any?
Particularly the one where it looks like Picard is bukkake-ing Wesley.

2. My roommate's boyfriend had been complaining of weird headaches, blurry vision and randomly losing the ability to grip things. This morning he had a huge seizure and they're running all these tests and stuff. It's pretty scary. What the heck do I say to my roommate?
should I get rid of this icon? every time I ask a question I get responses along the lines of "OMG SAMOA I love those" and it's starting to get on my nerves.
I'm just wondering because this happened to me, and my boyfriend doesn't understand why I'm freaking out over my eyebrows. He keeps telling me that I'm overreacting. (The lady made them too small and one, I swear, seems slightly arched while the other doesn't and they don't start out at the same area.)
do you like milk? I DETEST IT BECAUSE ITS SOLID WHITENESS what the hell!!!! is there any other drink that is so solid of one colour? it's like drinking white. my boyfriend loves it and it causes issues and also conflicts.
