what the hell is the name of the song by the female country singer, about committing a crime (I want to say robbery) and she and the dancers are all dressed in what are supposed to be prison uniforms, running/dancing around stage?
Since it's been answered,
Does it snow where you live, how much? If not, do people flip their lid when they get so much as a flurry? If you do live in a place that gets snow, are you amused to hear stories about people freaking out when they get like an inch of snow?
Karl Popper said that religion and science will never see eye to eye because they are apples and oranges. In that, in order for science to work, you must go in thinking that everything you know has the possibility of being wrong, which leads to experimentation and the working on new and better equations. While in order for religion to work, you must go in thinking that everything you know is fact. God is concrete. You can't run Him through science because if you prove that God does exist using the scientific method, then you can prove that He does not exist. That is, this goes back to the initial thought of science, that everything you know has the possibility of being wrong.
TL;DR, the tools of science cannot and will not be able to prove the existence of God. That would be like only using a chainsaw to make a cake. You can't do it.
A lot of times my friends and lovers make me their ethnic food. I totally want to make my friends the ~food of my people.~ The problem is that the food of my people that I'm awesome at making are basically haggis, meat pies, sausage rolls, and meat with meat on top with meat dressing, basically. At shitload of meat.
so tell me, how would you feel if your friend cooked you a ton of haggis and other sorts of meat? would you be down with that, or would you be grossed out?
also, I broke up with my boyfriend. we'll probably get back together eventually. so should i just wait, or should i date a bunch of other people in the mean time?
i'm not a troll, bitches. but you can pretend we're not related if it makes you feel better. okay?
If you didn't click for the poop story (and even if you did)
My hair is cut in that little angular bob that everyone's doing nowadays, between my shoulders and chin. I recently got it trimmed to clean up the edges and stuff and took no more than like 1/4 inch off. Before I cut my hair, if I didn't blowdry it I could scrunch it and make really cute curls. I could never do this with long hair because, while my hair is naturally wavy with a slight curl, my hair is also very heavy so I couldn't do this until my hair was short. Now that I've cut the tiny bit off, I can't get my curls anymore. What the hell? I thought a haircut made your hair even lighter? Could a 1/4 inch really make that much of a difference? Did my hair revolt?
I see this guy all the time at my mall. He dresses like he's from the 50s or some shit (maybe not the 50s - I'm not great at recognizing eras.) But he wears a sort of plaid short-sleeved shirt, tucked in, and older style jeans, along with a black, Elvis pomp. And he's ridiculously hot.
This is my question: Do you think he's mentally unstable, or is he just a guy who likes Elvis? I mean, should I avoid him, because he's probably a little loony, or do you think he could be totally normal?
How should I start a conversation? Would it be rude to comment on his style of dress, even if I'm complimenting it?
Does your university offer recreation classes (SCUBA, rock climbing, mountain biking)?
At my old university, the class sizes for rec classes were much larger than my current university and filled up a lot faster. Why do you suppose people are not taking rec classes at my current university?
there is a strange beeping seeming to come from somewhere outside the window/near my room i cant quit figure out where it is coming from, but its freaking me out so bad i cant figure out what it is. it sounds like when a micro wave beeps and its 2 beeps, it goes off about every half hour/hour. help?! what is this? is there a bomb somewhere? O: im freaking out.
Have you ever had any dreams where you died or were told that you were going to die? How did it happen? I almost died 3 times last night from drinking bathroom cleaner, skin cancer, and a space alien worm.
Why do so many people on add_me communities describe themselves as "random"? Are people so desperate to be different? It seems like about 30% of people don't use capital letters in an attempt to be "random", being bi-sexual or bi-polar also helps(perhaps bi is a very random suffix?)
I have a very important meeting in about an hour that while, not entirely responsible for determining my future, will certainly determine my mood/finances/general feelings towards justice and fairness in the world. There are three possible outcomes: one really awesome that should have happened all along, one crappy one that will bring a lot of closure, or one potentially crappy one that will just bring me back to the same mindset as I am in today (but delayed until next month).
Which will it be, TQC? Will I be relieved in an hour?
When was the last time you had something like this? What was it about and how did it turn out for you?
It just occurred to me that I get extremely annoyed when people use nicknames for others that they only use when referring to the person, but don't use to the person's face.
For example, when someone says "The boyfriend," "The 'rents", "The little lady", or just uses someone's first initial. I would never call my mom "my 'rent", I would just use it as a reference term. But it doesn't bother me if someone goes by a nickname and they are called that to their face as well, like "Buddy".
Does anyone else have this weird pet peeve or am I the only one who analyzes stuff like this that obsessively?
My hair is graying prematurely. When my father was my age, he had a full head of gray hair for something like 10 years. I only have the salt and pepper thing going on right now, so I consider myself ahead of the game, although the salt-to-pepper ratio is rapidly shifting.
I'm looking for a book about Jesus (besides the Bible) that tells about his life and times. Something thats more just about the facts, historically speaking, and not something that has a lot of overly religious opinions in it. If such a thing exists...Any recommendations?
One day, your SO calls you at night and says that he/she is going to have to work late and can't get out of it. As your SO is explaining, you hear the ex in the background saying "C'mon, get off the phone already. We're not done yet". What do you think is going on?
Check SO for hickies, lipstick smudges, strange wrinkles or anything else out of the ordinary
Greet him/her and ask about their day. Then, we watch some tv to unwind, as always. Nothing's different
Pull SO into bedroom for sex. If he/she refuses, it must mean he/she just had sex and is cheating on me. Plus, the sex will keep SO loyal to me
Give SO the third degree, asking all sorts of direct questions, trying to catch him/her in a lie
Your SO is at a bachelor/bachelorette party in Las Vegas. In the middle of the night, you get a call from your SO. He/she asks, "Would you look down on me if I cheated?", and before you can respond, he/she says "I gotta go. Love you, talk to you later" and hangs up. All phone calls you make to your SO's phone goes straight to the answering service. What kind of cheating do you think your SO was talking about?
Nooot that this is somehow in any way related to any mischief I want to get up to tonight, I do not have a high-res version of this picture (edit: if that link isn't working... it is for me, not sure why... try this one or this one.. click to enlarge it on the second link), would it still print out okay and be readable? I would test it out myself but I don't have a printer. It would not necessarily have to be in color.
In other news, how are you today, TQC? I've been scarce lately and have missed you. Life going okay? Anything interesting happen to you lately? :)
Do you or have you ever left money in your mailbox with a note for the postman in order to buy stamps? (My co-worker thinks I'm insane, but my mom used to leave money in the mailbox for the mailman and he would bring her a book of stamps the next day.)
Do you or have you ever given your postal carrier a gift for Christmas?
Do you have sex whilst one party is on her period?
Whats the idea with putting cotton wool 'up-there'? Isn't it really difficult to get back out? EDIT 2: I see where I went wrong, I mean putting cotton wool up and not taking it out for the sex.
(EDIT: It was on 'Secret Diary of a Call Girl', it was suggested that one of the girls put a cotton wool ball all the way up.I thought A) thats not entirely hygenic, B) Hows she going to get it out? and C) even if you're going to use a tampon, youre not meant to have sex with it in!)
How do you suggest to someone that maybe they aren't caring for a pet or child the way they should be?
What do you think of pets being thought of as objects?
1. My friend has a parrot, and her live in boyfriend has one too and OMG are they loud. They just screech and you can't even cuddle them!
2. Said friend keeps the birds in tiny (in my opinion) cages. They have room to extend their wings fully, and walk back and forth a bit but they can't fly and I figure their few toys would get boring after a while, given parrots are smart creatures. She only lets them out for about an hour a day and sometimes not even that because she gets home late from work or whatever. I don't know what to say but I'm really sad for the poor birds.
3. It really shocks me. A friend's boyfriend threatened to put their cat down when they broke up because it reminded him of the relationship D: D: (It didn't happen, thankfully). And recently I heard about a cat whose owners abandoned it after 13 years together because they were moving and it was inconvenient to take the cat. HOW COULD YOU DO THAT?! (I understand that sometimes it is in the best interest of the animal to give it away, and that is different)
TQC, have you ever had a certain food trigger a memory of a loved one who passed away? What was it?
I just had every memory of my Uncle John play out since I was a baby, and I swear it was because we had baked ziti for lunch, which was his favorite food. Somehow the smell just reminded me of him. Today would also be his 51st birthday, so maybe that helped?
So, I don't have a washer and dryer right now and can't get to a laundromat until tomorrow. My son peed his bed last night and I had to wash the sheets and his clothes he was wearing in the tub and hang them out to dry. My dilemma! They keep blowing off the line, as it's a very windy day.
What household item can I use to keep my clothing on the line? I tried using these weird cog toys my son had, but they were too loose and fell off. It's too cold to be going out there every few minutes to rehang.
PS - The "line" is actually a 30ft serial cable cord that I tied around my porch, lol.
EDIT: georgefantana wins! I found some bobby pins and a hair clip and that seems to be working.
My last question sucked, I know, probably drove a lot of you insane. Sorry, but I had to ask TQC, since I value the opinions of complete strangers.
So, how about something a little bit more controversial, and completely beaten into the ground? What's your take on GOD? Do you believe in 'him/her'? What do you think of people who do? What do you think of people who don't? Why do you? Why don't you?
Edit: I am agnostic, leaning more towards athiest, on the believing front.
Edit 2: More so, gay marriages, abortions, and all those other nice things the bible and religion hate up on. I believe in them, I'm for them (gay marriages, and abortions not the bible and religion)
Do you know of any websites where you can take a test and it'll tell you what kind of careers are best for you?
I just wasted 20 minutes on this site and the results were crap. It said I was 100% for construction even though I said "not interested" for anything even remotely related to construction/building/engineering. My school used Wisc Careers and it was awesome, but you can't sign up for it for free without being a teacher.
If I want to apply for a job at Apple, is there anything I need to know beforehand, or do they do training on the job? I've only used an iBook in college - that's about the extent of my Apple knowledge right now. Any inside info that would be useful? What should I prepare?
My boyfriend and I have been talking marriage lately...Nothing too serious, no solid plans...But I believe my friend knows when he intends to propose and I know he'd like to be married within the next 3 ish years, kids in 6 ish. I'm getting stereotypically excited.
On a scale of 1-10, how hard should I punch him for asking, "Will you marr- just kidding. Will you put the water away?"
my father just told me(through my mom) that he has a lump in his throat which he is going to get checked at the hospital later at 3pm. it's now 2pm and i'm really worried it's going to be cancer and stuff like that :( he first got it detected at a clinic and the doc told him to get it checked at a hospital. i'm worried because he has been smoking a lot way before i was born and i'm 19 this year! :( what do you think it is?! omg:(
I wanted to buy this for my boyfriend for the holidays, but sadly I can't get it shipped to me in the USA. So, does anyone know of any good sites where I can buy weird Christian stuff, like popjudaica.com, but for Christians? I'm specifically looking for weird/funny Jesus statues. The glitter one was perfect, but it doesn't look like it's to be.
There are 4 of us working in the department and A's client offered to buy us pizza for lunch. There are 8 pieces left. Should the pieces be split up between the 4 of us to take home, or is the rest of the pizza A's pizza?
(FTR, I have no viewpoint on this but it's apparently srs business because the three of them are arguing about it. I have told them I'll ask the internet)
One of the word processing women at my company really likes her perfume. She walked into my boss's office next door about ten minutes ago and I'm getting a headache from the very vile smell she brought with her that's just lingering in the air.
Is there a polite way to tell someone they're wearing too much perfume?
Is there anything appearence-wise you generally dislike in the opposite sex? Are there any exceptions to the rule?
right folks, i am just wanting to get opinions on something. those of you who live in the UK, this doesnt really apply to you so much as, well, you'll know the right answers. What do you know about Great Britain?
im just wanting to see what people think of the UK, coz i know a fair bit about other countries that i was taught in school, and im just wondering if other countries teach much about us, as we are an interesting little country.
also apologise about the lack of LJ cut, i cant get it to work. tags seem to not like me today :(
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, what are your favorite Christmas movies? (If you have any.) Do you and any friends/family have a particular movie you watch every year?
Well, so far my personal list of movies to watch this winter are The Family Man, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Holiday, Love Actually, Elf and A Christmas Story. My family and I watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation every year. ;)
So, I am developing an idea for a screenplay and my original idea had the setting as an office...it was to be like an office drama/comedy but I've come to decide that there is too much going on in the main plot to throw everything into the work place and it just doesn't fit or flow like it should.
Without going into details, it does really need to be set in a communal type setting and the only other places I can think of that would involve a group of people in close quarters much of the time is a college dorm, or a hostel type living accommodation...or prison...but prison doesn't work at all for obvious reasons.
Any suggestions of other types of communal type environments that I could use as a setting?
Sorry for the vague and unnecessary Seinfeld reference.
Anyway, I've had these song lyrics stuck in my head since high school and I can't remember the name of the band. Google searches reveal nothing. I know it was a Ska/Reggae album my friend lent me. I am no longer in contact with that friend nor do I have any idea what the band or song titles are. Hopefully someone here will recognize what I can remember of it:
I'll be number two, If it means to be with you. But baby can't you see? I just can't be, just can't be number three.
Oh I'll be the other guy, But never just some other guy. Why can't you, why can't you see?
I work at Burger King. There's a manager there who loves to have fun and loves when people prank her. What are some good pranks to pull on her at work? Keep in mind we mostly work the closing shift together.
It freaks me out when people show their bottom teeth a lot. We have a customer at work who is generally an okay customer (not super nice, but not bad by any stretch most days), but she always has her lower teeth showing! When people talk to me or smile and they have all their teeth showing all the time, it makes me really uncomfortable and nervous.
WHY? D: I realize this is totally irrational. It's not that I find it gross, but it makes me anxious.
Do you have any weird things that bother you? I had a friend who didn't like looking at her own feet because her toes were deformed.
Are you sick? Do you usually get sick this time of year? When was the last time you got sick?
Do you have a GPS? Do you like it? What kind do you have?
So I'm looking to get someone a GPS for Christmas. I've been told Garmin is really good, but the base model only gives you one direction to where ever you need, and can not reroute directions based on traffic, etc. Is this true?
in the hall is this janky fire alarm. really, it's a toast alarm, cuz the thing goes off with the slightest provocation. unfortunately, it's up on a 10 ft ceiling and we have neither ladder nor chair big enough to get up there and pull the batteries. the only way to shut it off is to stand there like a fool, waving a towel at the thing to dissipate any fumes.
what stupid thing in your house or car or environment forces you to take silly, continuous half measures just to get through the day?
Does anyone here know of a good creative writing community? I mean, one where you can share your creative writing to get comments/critique. I did a search, but all that seemed to show up was inactive or emo comms, and for some reason a lot of comms with "grrl" in the name. Halp pls.
TQC, i want to make cakes or cookies or something tomorrow. i want to make something easy and simple, and preferably with cheap ingredients cause my boyfriend and i are poor students. what shall we make? take me to some recipes?
I have had this since 2004 and have noticed a decrease in the quality of my short term memory. I am 20 years old, wanna be journalist [need to remember facts], a student & a martial artist. I make lists & I practice forms etc, but are their any wonder foods, or supplements?
What song should I download?
ETA: I use BrainTraining on my DS already, though I don't do it everyday so maybe I should? And I'll listen to any music.
So I received a wedding invitation today. However, I have no idea who the bride and groom are. Should I go to the wedding anyway? The invitation is super fancy and nice, so maybe they would have an open bar...
