2. Would you see a therapist who has struggled with mental illness him/herself, if you were somehow privy to that information? Does it depend on the specific disorder?
3. Oh- I got my wisdom teeth taken out this morning. My mom thinks I'm taking too much Vicodin. I got them out around 10:30 am and now it's midnight and I've taken 5. I'll probably take another before bed and one in the middle of the night. They wear off super fast. So, am I popping them too often?
If you don't care how miserable I am, what's making you miserable right now?
ETA: I just had my roommate inspect them, and there's a rash on my lips. A rash. On my lips. How does that even happennn.
do you look down on religious people for being religious? i try not to, but tbh it makes me view them as a little less logical.

Do you do that too? And why?
A girl I haven't talked to in months IMed me and asked if my ex and I would like to have BDSM-style sex with her and her FWB. The convo basically went like:
Her: Are you and Boy talking?
Her: Wanna re-enact this erotic BDSM story I wrote?
EDIT: We talked about it, I didn't really give a definite response (things are complicated with the ex). And when I asked the ex about it, he just said it didn't look like we'd all be in town at the same time.

I'm sure there's others I've missed. Please feel free to tell me which ones and which you like better.
EDIT: I had a theme, but I guess it wasn't too clear. These are bands that have the same singers fronting for both of them. It's pretty much "which iteration is better?"

What's your favourite font?
Do you happen to know of a font that resembles alphabet soup letters?
Invisibility or flight? If you choose invisibility, you and anything you're wearing will become transparent, but anything you touch will still be visible and you'll have to be quiet if you don't want anyone to know you're around. If you choose flight, you can fly anywhere within the earth's atmosphere at speeds up to 1,000 miles per hour, but you'll only be able to carry with you what you can carry now (e.g. people can't ride on your back unless you can already carry people on your back).
I normally can eat REALLY spicy food. We're talking 10-star Thai, hot as they can make it. Usually I can eat extremely hot Indian food as well. Today, however, I may have met my match, as I have a huge stomachache. Is this the end of my spicy- food-eating days, or a temporary setback? I can't imagine a future without hot curries and all the other hot stuff I adore!

This is a bit TMI but I've gained about 8-10 pounds in water weight since my surgery yesterday and I can't pee easily, it's only been 24 hours but it's freaking me out and I don't know if it's normal. I haven't eaten anything since 12 hours before the surgery so I know it's just water weight and I'm very swollen.
I'm creeped out :( Will this go away eventually?
edit: I called the doctor and apparently this is just how I'm reacting to the anesthesia and that in 2/3 days everything should be back to normal.

Personally, I want to fast forward about 4 months... I feel like this particular point in my life is just filled with waiting and it's completely pointless. I want to be buying a house, getting married, having a baby, finishing school.... not taking a bunch of classes that don't even count, working at a job that really isn't getting me anywhere, living at home, etc...

Sometimes I feel like I’m cheating on the various interviewers/internships/magazines I’m applying for. I don’t know, I feel so sketchy when I have multiple interviews and stuff. I've been applying to stuff like crazy and I'm just feeling guilty, but then again, I want to make sure I get something I want... and perhaps hold out for something amazing.
But, I don't have the same problem when I go out on dates with guys and stuff. Is it sort of the same thing? Or am I completely clueless.
I just feel really guilty about it for some reason, like I shouldn't be doing it.
How do you politely decline an internship or a job/position? And what is the typical acceptable period that a person has between being offered a position and how long they can "think about it" before giving a response?
Back story: I got offered an internship somewhere yesterday), but just a couple days ago I got an interview with another AMAZING internship this upcoming Tuesday. Now, I don't want to keep the 1st person on the edge or hanging.. so I don't know what to say to her. I want to address it, but wait until I hear from the second place.....
WTF DO I DO?

Who WAS in the kitchen with Dina, anyway?
There is a sandwich shop down the street from my office that is a trip. The older couple that runs it is… odd. The wife apparently used to be some sort of actress/artist. There are HUGE portraits that she painted of herself everywhere. She gets horribly offended at the sight of cell phones and there are at least 40 signs posted outside, down the walkway and all over the inside of the shop that say, "NO CELL PHONES!" and "CELL PHONES BELONG OUTSIDE!". They make 20 different kinds of sandwiches, but there are signs posted on the counter, the wall and above and below the menu stating, "NO CUSTOM SANDWICHES!". The giant portraits (there's one of her husband's ass, lol), the unbelievable number of signs and her theatre makeup creates a very bizarre feeling to the shop. The sandwiches are great, so we go, but my co-worker refuses to go in by herself. Haha.
For the last two days, I've woken up with the left side of my face feeling like I've been punched. It hurts to blink my left eye, and my face is slightly warm to the touch. Do you have any idea what could cause this? It really hurts, and I'm rather annoyed by it, to be honest.

I have never gotten a call from a credit collections agency before. I don't know what it was about because I have gotten no bills or written notices (it might be over some medical bills that were supposed to go to my insurance, but I'd have to call). I'm at work all day today and I can't call these people until my lunch break Monday. I can't find any good info on this company online, either.
WHAT DO I DO, TQC?
WHAT IS THIS ABOUT? Am I going to jail, TQC? :(
ETA: No, I know I won't go to jail. I should have specified srs/nonsrs, lol.
I haven't straightened it since May and haven't heat processed it since August because I want it to grow longer and be "healthier" (last I straightened it it was an inch or so longer than "bra strap length")). I can't afford to buy and try products to make it look better in its natural state right now, since I feel like I don't look pretty with natural hair. My hair looks sexy straight, but will take a few hours to do.

Epson R1800 printer
Mac PowerBook G4, PowerPC chip, Mac OS 10.4.11
In "printer browser" the printer shows up in the list of printers connected to the computer, but the "Add" button is ghosted out thereby preventing me from adding the printer to the computer. We have reinstalled the printer drivers multiple times, same thing. I can use Epson's Printer Utility tool to print a nozzle check, so the communication path between the computer and the printer does work, just the silly OS seems to want to refuse to acknowledge the printer as an "add"able printer.
Now, to add extra sauce to this situation, in trying to connect the same printer to another computer (Mac OSX 10.4.11, G5 iMac, PowerPC chipset) and get the exact same result (ie, the computer sees the printer but ghosts out the "Add" button preventing me from adding the printer to the computer.)
I've tried Firewire and USB connections, same problems.
I've tried different USB and Firewire cables, same problems.
I have a third computer that prints to the printer no problem, but the printer was added to the computer when it had something earlier than 10.4.11 (some version of 10.4 but I don't recall the exact patch set. I'm convinced there is a problem with Epson's drivers being freshly installed on 10.4.11 because that's the only thing I can think of.)
And yes, I have googled this but have yet to find the exact phrasing to bring me a magic solution. So far all I find are "how to print better" which I'll deal with AFTER I'm able to actually get my silly computers to communicate in a useful way with my silly printer.
So, I now turn to you great faceless experts on the Internet for input. While I'm looking for serious replies, given that I've been dealing with this frustration and help desk people on the fone all day, I could use a smile/giggle too.

I work as a Crisis loan Decision Maker for the UK government, basically my job entails giiving money to people who have literally no resources.
The amount of money i give to them is completly up to me.
I can award the money for anything but I have a question about the money I provide for food:
I give people who have access to cooking facilities - £2.50 a day ($3.7 US Dollars) a day for food to people who have access to cooking facilities.
I give people who have no access to cooking facilites (Homeless people etc) - £5 ($7.4 US Dollars) a day for food.
Am I harsh? I think it's enough to survive on.

How did my rum get flies in it? It was the most disgusting thing. I pulled my half gone fifth of bacardi from my freezer, only to find it filled with flies. How did this happen? I want to blame it on the nasty banana that my roommate left in the freezer to make banana bread with, but...wouldn't they have all died before infesting my alcohol?
Is there some kind of evidence that I'm not aware of that says being on HBC is unhealthy? How long is too long? I thought most of the information linking it to breast cancer proved to be inaccurate and that it lowers other cancer likelihoods.

I'm really about to freak out. Can you tell me what I should say to her? She said that since I'm not *in puberty* anymore I won't get cysts on my ovaries,horrible cramps or exorbitantly long periods anymore...any truth in this either? I totally disagree, or at the very least don't want to find out.

This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it! In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out! Try to do so without any coaching!
