i most certainly did NOT. such a load of shit. but at least the stuff was tasty raw. me and my friend, James, eventually would just give up, mix the packages and eat it like that. and i'm listening to
What is the difference between bread flour and all purpose flour? When I went to the Kroger looking for bread flour they did not have any. They had about a bajillion different brands of AP flour.
How many times do I have to bake something disgusting before I should give up on baking at all? I'm at 4 failures right now.
Is baking from a box really that terrible? I spent 4 hours on chocolate cupcakes that didn't even taste like chocolate and I spent 15 minutes on Duncan Hines chocolate lava cupcakes and they were fantastic and I ate 3.
I feel twelve.
How often do you stay up wayyy after you should be asleep?

Untitled, Silk-screen poster, Rene Mederos, Cuba, 1972. This untitled piece by Rene Mederos depicts the revolutionaries Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos. The artist had owned the copyright to the piece which was passed down to his estate at the time of his death in 1996.
Screenshot taken from the "Bombing Science" website on 7/18/2007. An image by Shepard Fairey titled 'Cuban Rider' was being sold as a T-shirt. Author Lincoln Cushing recognized the image from his book Revolución: Cuban Poster Art, as well as David Kunzle’s book, Che Guevara: Icon, Myth and Message. Cushing informed the family of Rene Mederos and discovered that the estate had not given Shepard Fairey permission to use the image or print the graphic.
Shepard Fairey acknowledged the copyright infringement involved with the 'Cuban Rider' shirt and had it pulled from the clothing line. The Mederos estate was compensated for an unknown amount-- though some sources claim the family was only paid $1,000. Up until that point Shepard Fairey had not mentioned the Mederos piece he had “referenced”-- he had claimed it as his own.
Shepard Fairey opened up about the Rene Mederos controversy during a 2008 interview with Mother Jones. He said, “There's a piece by [Cuban artist] René Mederos that I used, thinking, "Well, how would I ever pay this guy anyway because he's in Cuba?" All I really changed about that graphic was I put flowers into the gun and put a peace logo in it. With Castro and Che on horses I was definitely manipulating the original intention, but at the same time, it was a really beautifully done poster and tweaking it for my anti-war agenda was a way to pass that graphic along. So when [Mederos' estate] contacted me, I immediately paid him the exact same royalty rate that any artist would be paid." Again, acknowledging copyright law is an issue of respect-- respect for yourself and respect for the creative community as a whole.
So is Shepard Fairey an artist that we should admire or is he an art thief that should be exposed?

My question is:
Should I go to the event for moral support for my musician contacts?
Or, since now I'm no longer the middle man contact, should I skip it?

In Los Angeles, California, last week, a former money manager fatally shot his wife, three sons and his mother-in-law before killing himself.
Karthik Rajaram, 45, left a suicide note saying he was in financial trouble and contemplated killing just himself. But he said he decided to kill his entire family because that was more honorable, police said.
How does that make sense?
A 19-year-old Asheville teenager said she legally changed her name to CutoutDissection.com to protest animal dissections in schools.

2. Given that amount, now if for every time you lied, you were 10 cents poorer. How much money would you have now?
3. If life really charged/payed you for lying or being lied to, how much would this change the type of person that YOU are?

For example, can an ethnically Jewish person be anti-semitic? Why or why not?
I have a chalazion cyst on my eye and its been there a couple weeks and now after finishing my antibiotics it hurts. It feels more tender so I'm wondering if it burst and that's what is causing the pain. I tired looking on google for cyst + pain but all I saw were results about ovarian cysts.
What's the most shocking good news you've received lately? Bad news?
What is your favorite deli meat?
Edit: If you don't eat meat, what's your favorite high protein food?
Why is this happening?
You are taking a walk. You see a fruit tree you could identify (let's say an apple tree for the sake of argument, but it could be blackberries or whatever else applies) and see that the fruit is ripe, and is within your reach without having to stomp in someone's yard.
Do you pick some fruit? If you would pick fruit, would you eat it on the spot, or take it somewhere to wash it first?

This guy is saying that even if you're born to a mother that's an American citizen in a foreign country, you're not an American citizen.
What I'm saying, is that every government class I've ever had has said that if you're born to an American mother overseas, you're still an American citizen.
What is it that you have heard on this matter, TQC?
2: Are you allowed to surf the internet at work or do you have to minimize it when someone walks by?
3: Which is creepier -- being stalked irl or online?
4: If you were stalking someone online (and you of course wanted to hear back from them) and they didn't respond to your e-mail right away, would you say "Write back you bitch" and send dozens more nasty e-mails or would you try to be pleasant (even if you were fuming inside) so they would be more likely to respond?

I know it seems far too early to be thinking about ~*~CHRISTMAS~*~, but one of my Christmas gift ideas is rather expensive, so I need to decide soon in order to start saving up the cash.
The Idea: I should like to buy my boyfriend an iPod or other similar mp3 player as a gift for Christmas, because I know he's wanted one for a while.
The Questions: (A) Is this an appropriate gift for a gf to give a bf, due to it's expensiveness (expensivousity?)? Why or why not?
(B) Am I a weirdo for caring about how much it costs? I'm not terribly worried about affordability, just whether or not he'd be weirded out by getting one from me.
(C) iPod or other mp3 brand? Pros and cons of getting either?
(D) What model iPod/mp3 player would you suggest, given some of the Facts below?
( Collapse )
Help me, TQC. I don't want to send him another lumpy handmade scarf this year :(
ETA: To make this less self-centric, what is the most badass Christmas (or other holiday/birthday, if you don't celebrate Christmas) present you ever gave and/or got? If this doesn't pan out, I might steal some other ideaz.

Do you like writing thank-you notes? Is it something you do often or did your parents always have to nag you about it?
(Where are you from? I'm curious to see if it really is much more prominent in Southern US states to write them than anywhere else).

Dammit I failed. When is the last time you failed at anything?
Which of the following do you currently have 3 or more of?
And generally, on job apps, do you offer up salary requirements? I had a professor tell me that this information is none of their business and they only ask to see if they can pay you less than other candidates.
2. What do you look for in a potential SO?
Non-srs answers are SO welcome.
does it make a difference if it's a children's book?
*bonus points if it is available in the US because the person i am asking for lives there*
she thinks it's because of dry skin, if that matters.
and to make this fun, what's the most ridiculous ~*remedy*~ you've heard of? ones you've tried that have backfired? (i still hear people suggesting you put butter on burns... omfg no)
I know it's all quite fun but let's pick one.
1. what is your favorite?
sex and anything related to you having an orgasm.
did I leave your favorite out out? what is it then?
2. and pick the one you would give up to have your favorite guaranteed to be awesomely blissfull every time.
-Fencing - it'd be a cool skill to learn, and if I liked it, I could sign up for a real fencing course somewhere
-Harmonica - I like collecting useless skills, and being able to play the harmonica would be fun, wacky and maybe I'll end up entertaining people with it on some strange twist-of-fate day
-Tai Chi - I've seen the older Chinese people do it at the park, and it looks interesting. It might be useful and insightful. At least I'll know what the hubbub is
-Home Improvement - it's decent guy knowledge, from laying tiles to fixing toilets to fiddling with light socket stuff. It's stuff that could only improve my standing as a male
-Excel-advanced - I already am a whiz at basic excel, but there's loads of complicated next-level features I don't know much or anything about. It'll improve my knowledge and it'll be something I can put on my resume
Which classes should I sign up for?
For those of you out of college: What was your favorite easy to make dish during that time?
For those of you in college: What is your favorite meal on a budget?
For those of you who neither were in college, or are not yet in college: What kind of food would you like to see in a cookbook?
Bonus: If you don't mind sharing, can I use the recipe in the book? With credit of course.

I just took depressionscreening.org's test, and supposedly my answers are consistent with "moderate depression."
Should I get an actual screening, as in with a person, on campus? Would it even be worth it? It seems like everybody is depressed nowadays anyway, lol.
So I ask are there any words of wisdom, lyrics, quotes that you know that are not crappy Hallmark card sentiments (Footprints e.g.) that help you hang on through the mud and tall grass in life?
what do you think of Telus' Keybo?
i made anzac cookies :)
(they look like that if anyone doesn't know what they are)
Probably Skinny Bitch. I thought it was going to be a no-nonsense approach to weight loss, but instead it was veganism disguised as a diet, beat into your head with an entirely unnecessary excess of vulgar language and profanity.
