So I leave my house, get on my bike, and in the street out of the square there are some guys jumping on a car. I have to past them, so I bike faster, and then one of the guys' dog gets in my path and I accidentally hit him with my bike and the dogs start to howl. I stop and apologize and the owner tells me he's going to kill me. So I flee, with the guy yelling how he's gonna kill me some more. The dog didn't seem injured.

So considering it's close to my house and I have to keep using that street, how fucked am I? Will they kill me or just beat me up?

For vegans:

If you were starving to death and the only food available was dairy-based, would you eat it?

For vegetarians:

If you were starving to death and the only food available was meat, would you eat it? Would it make a difference if the meat was already butchered (say, a steak), or if you had to kill the animal yourself? Would it matter what kind of animal it was?

For everyone:

If you were starving to death and the only food available was human, would you eat it? Would it make a difference, again, if the meat was already butchered, or if you had to kill the person yourself?

TQC, my husband received a month of Unemployment pay last year. Will they send us a W2 for that? If not, how do we pay taxes on it?

I am trying to fix a friend's laptop (old ass Thinkpad) but it needs an OS. My OEM Windows Home is out of uses and though I downloaded a copy of Professional the code on the back of the laptop won't work. Do Thinkpads come with special versions of Windows? Will the recovery disks put Windows back on? They did not provide me with an actual Windows Profession CD, just 8 recovery disks. I've never used recovery disks before.

I want a bicycle for my bday. What is a good, but cheap, kind of bike I could buy? I'd prefer it to have gears and the ability to stop by making the pedals go backward. And I want it to be purple.

Do you ride your bike on the road or the sidewalk? When was the last time you road a bike?

I have never ever taken out a loan. (I am considering taking out a loan to buy a used food truck so I can start my own business.) Do I, uh, just go into my local BoA the way I would if I lost my debit card or something, and talk to someone there? Do I need to dress nicely or bring any sort of paperwork? It wouldn't be the hugest loan ever, about $8000...well maybe a bit more.

What exactly do you think of when you hear godparent?

Can you be a godparent without being religious?

An old friend of mine is considering me to be godmother for her son, however I'm an Atheist and she's not particularly religious either, but she does plan on baptizing her son and I believe it will be a Catholic baptism because she was raised in the Catholic church.
What I've read so far is that I won't be recognized by her church because I'm not Catholic, but that I can still be a 'godparent' in the eyes of the law, if the proper legal channels are taken.
If I do accept, I do plan on teaching Beau different aspects of the world's religions, but not solely Catholicism (mainly because all I know about Catholicism is from Dogma).

Is there a good theological text that spans most of the world's religions and speaks about it from a purely academic standpoint? I'd like to have something on hand to use as a reference, though I won't need it for several years yet.

If you have godparents, do they teach you about religion?
What other things do your godparents do?

Last night, my best friend had a dream where she went down on Batman (and yes, he used that terrible voice in the movie) via a lift-up door in the batsuit that gave easy access to his genitals. In the next part of the dream, she and her boyfriend roleplayed as Batman and Robin, and she was Batman.

I have nearly 10GB of digital pictures on my computer, whats the best way to store them? I mean like, burn them to CDs, portable hardrive, etc..I want to keep them safe. They're backed up, but I also want to make room because there will be millions more to come. Is it "safest" to just keep 'em off my pc or what? Safe as in I'd faint if I lost them.

White Privilege

My friend and I have a reoccurring argument over white privilege. Basically, he does not think it exists, and if it exists, it's not really a big deal/problem.

He is a white male.

I tried to explain to him that he's blind to the privileges he gets, he denies that he is privileged in any way and claims that minorities cry racism and white privilege over everything. He complains of reverse racism. He describes himself as being a victim.

I tried to get him to understand why he'd not see his own privileges by saying that, because I am a white female, I am blind to many of the privileges I have, but I also see disadvantages and sexism because I am female. As a white male, he can't see the advantages he has. I tried to say "you couldn't understand what it is like to be female, or black, or Jewish".

He basically comes back with "You don't understand what it's like being male!" (because white men have it so hard, amirite?)

How can I explain to him that white privilege exists and that he does, in fact, benefit from it?"

(Don't bother with the "OMG your friend sucks comments", I'd really like to hear how you'd debate/argue this with him if he was saying all this to you).

Job applications

After sending a company your cover letter and resume, what is an appropriate length of time to wait before calling the potential employer?

The backstory: I called the company in early December, spoke with the assistant director (a friend recommended her to speak with), and she said she'd like to interview me - could I please send her my resume? I was super excited, so I had my college's career services people help me tweak my resume and cover letter so I look really impressive on paper, and sent it to her on December 14. My snail-mail address, email address, and cell number are listed on my resume, and I have yet to hear back from her.
What should I do??

ETA: She's more mad about the fact that I went behind her back to let him know about my feelings (she found out by looking at my texts, I'd forgotten those messages were there) than the actual part about liking him.

What's your pet peeve in the realm of word-twisting jackassery?

For me, I have a lot of hates in this but the pants-on-head stupid thing that will make me lose all respect for someone and wish horrible, agonizing death upon the gibbering idiot spouting it is the sentence: "Don't assume, 'cause it makes an ass of you an' me."

Another example of what I mean is the fundie practice of warping words to their own purposes, such as saying "wicked pedia" instead of "wikipedia" and saying that things are bad because they have the word "hell" in them.

Someone I know's new year's resolution is to "find love". Does this seem incredibly stupid to you?

I mean, being open to love, learning to accept love, becoming more lovable, that's all cool, but actively seeking it out seems like you'll be looking for it everywhere and just latching on to anything shallow so you 'have love'. Also I don't think one's new years resolutions should rely on other people, I think they should be self improvements, or things for you to do.

Sparked by the recent post.

I don't have anything to hide, so I could care less if my husband "snooped" into my text messages/emails/etc.
If I had something that I wanted to keep private, I would simply tell him, "That's private, please don't go in there." Or something to that effect and I can count on him obliging my wishes.

My question is this:

Do people actually make a point of saying, "Don't look at my cell phone/text messages/etc."?
Or is there simply an assumption?

In a mildly similar vein.

I actually find it comical when my husband hands me my purse instead of retrieving the item he needs from there. I have told him many times over that he can just go in it.

i am working in photoshop cs2 on a mac and i am creating a 100x100px icon. when i tell it to save as a jpg, it tells me that it will be ~32.19k, which is fabulous and exactly what i need. i save it to the folder/desktop/wherever and when i try to upload it to lj, it says it is too big. when i look at the info using command+i, it says that the file is 104k. WHY IS IT DOING THIS? i have been having this issue for a few months, but i don't make icons frequently enough that it's been a huge bother. i have tweaked every saving option (excluding making it look like TOTAL CRAP) and have tried it in a variety of file types.

The Receptionist Classic

My broomstick needs a rest

The neighbors upstairs have two little boys - ages 4 and 7 (or somewhere around those ages). Every day, the mom and younger boy leave (slamming the doors, of course) and return with the older kid around 2 (PM). Then the noise begins and continues until at least 10 (PM). They run, they jump, they body-slam off the couch, they bounce basketballs all over the place. It gets so bad that they make the things on our walls rattle and the ceiling fan shakes. We've already talked to them once before, when they first moved in (it was 11:30 on a weeknight and the kids were still at it). The guy didn't really apologize, he just said "Well, we have kids."

TQC, I'm getting headaches from this constant noise. Should I start buying the expensive medicine and tack the bills to their door?

At what time should I send my husband and his brother up there to talk to the parents again?

Or should I say screw it, we've already talked to them once, and just complain to the apartment management?

Laptop Bags

I'm a little stuck. I have a larger bag (which fits my previous laptop) that a sleeve could potentially fit inside... it could also go inside a backpack, which is convenient. On the other side of the issue, it would be nice to be able to put my cables (and possibly tablet) in the same case, which would require one of the larger, non-sleeve options.

1 - How many songs do you have in your iTunes/WMP/Winamp/Whatever else you use?
2 - What are your top 5 most listened to songs?

If you don't care/cbf,

3 - How intimate are/were your relationships with your teachers/professors? Like, were you friends? Would you stop and chat if you saw them out and about? Did you have each other's phone numbers? Did you ever hug each other or is that way too physical?

Baaaad to the bra

When you dance around the house half-naked because nobody's there to see you,

(1) how much clothes are you actually wearing?
(2) What kind of dance do you do?

I usually get on at least some pants or shorts. I like to pretend I'm a flapper lady (with a fancy fringed skirt) doing snazzy '20s hip-bumps.

I want to go to Florida for a weekend and stay near the beach. I'd like to go somewhere that is near an airport so I can get a taxi and not have to rent a car. Any suggestions for which beach/city to visit?

ok i'm changing question one a bit.

1. how many DIFFERENT body washes do you own? regular soap counts.
i have 3 ^___^

2. does it make me Anal McLooneypants that i take the white sleeve records come with and label them, so that if i have more than one album out, i don't put the white sleeve that came with album A with album B, or so that if the record came with more than one disc i don't mix those up?

i didn't think it was that weird until my friend was over and went, "wwwhy did you do that...?"

but keep in mind they're just.. white sheets of paper, basically.

So,on New Years Eve, my 2 girlfriends and I got a ride home with some random guy. (Bad idea I know)
Anyway, i left my camera in his car.
I found him on Facebook.. And he said I could get the camera back on Friday! He has pretty much saved my life as the memory card in it has all my Family Christmas pictures on it!
So, my question!
What should I give him to say thanks?
I don't want to just do nothing! he could have easily stolen the camera.. But he didn't.
And no sex. haha.

TQC, I am in a moral dilemma.

I currently live in a rental house with a lady who is slowly driving me to commit a homicide of epic proportions. I'm trying to find a new place, and I've told a girl from school that we can look for a place together. So far, the only places I can find for two people are out of my price range, and hers. If they're not, they're gross.

I found, however, a place looking for ONE female roommate that looks totally ideal for me. I emailed the girls renting it, and they want to meet me, they know people in my program and like us. Things are looking good.

I can't decide if I'm being disloyal to my friend. Nothing was set in stone and we just talked about the idea, but I still feel weird.

So, should I check out this other room? If I do, and things work out, what do I tell my friend?

*edit* I should also mention that while finding a place around here for two is pretty hard, finding singles is REALLY easy. ALSO: This girl is someone I met at school. I've known her for a semester, so we're friends, but not like, OMGBESTIES.

When you see a train wreck coming in a TV show and you just can't stop watching, what do YOU usually do? It's one of your favorite shows, say, but you can't help but look at the progression of events and go:... awww...really, you're really going to do that?

Do you stop watching because you know it's going to ruin it or do you keep going to see if your prediction is going to come true?
