what is your iq?
I kind of want to start taking riding lessons. I have images of myself jumping hurdles in the sun. What a dream ;_; But how far can a person really go without owning a horse?
I'm not the richest person in the world though I work fulltime - is this a terrible hobby to pursue? Is it better to not get involved, then to find out I love it but can't afford to keep it up? If you are poor, how do you keep horses in your life?
For the rest of you, what's your favourite farm animal?
Do they send any to you?
Should I really buy my mom a wii for her birthday?
What's in your wallet?
or...what's in your walls?! haha.
Edit:Not that you care but my cat was trying to rip up the walls so I figured something was in there. I got my cat some catnip, he got high, and now he's snoring on my bed. Good call eh?
SO my cat just was running around and i thought he was trying to rip my walls apart. turns out... there was a mouse. it was a joint effort. i moved something out of the way... and i saw the mouse. and my cat scrambled, got him...caught him in his mouth..the moused jumped out flew and hit the wall, my cat pounced again and caught the mouse in his mouth, again mouse got free, and then cat and i caught him once and for all.
I crack my knuckles and wiggle my fingers when I'm nervous. And stutter.

im hoping to move out of the US in a couple of years and im looking at what countries i would like the most. right now im mostly thinking about either Finland, Norway, or somewhere in the UK most likely Scotland or England.
I just heard Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart" and I remember how much I loved it when I was 10-11 years old.. in all its deep-voiced, cheesy glory.
Have you ever been nearly raped? (being raped doesn't count.)
Have you ever had your place been shot at? When was it?
Have you ever been thrown in jail? For reason(s)?
Were you required to go to court? What for?
How many times have you gone to mental institutions? For what purpose?
Details are welcomed.
Would you like to talk about it?
Will you try to make someone feel better?
Is there anything that you're really happy about?
Want to share the good news so we can be happy for you?
Like pop vs soda?
Any recommendations? Thank you.
I need help. I am in a panic.
I just woke up because I heard a scuffle in my house and it sounded like my cat was doing somersaults.
I got up to see what the fuck is going on.
My cat.... has a MOUSE cornered in the bathroom. She is normally scared of bugs so I don't get it.
My important question is, HOW did a mouse get into my house? And WTF do I do? I don't want her killing a mouse and then putting it in my bed or anything. I will not be able to sleep tonight or ever again!!! And ... does this mean there are MORE MICE lurking and waiting to come in?
What's the most painful injury you've ever received?
Are they fandom related? Any furries or slash fans?

What is the first word that comes to mind when you see the word crane?
Do it with other comments, too!
Shop-owner: Of course.
City: Yeah, well that needs to go.
Shop-owner: But there's no text or anything. Its just art.
City: Has to go. It's related to what you sell - bait and tackle.
Shop-owner: Nope, not removing it.
City: Well then we're going to cite you 5 times and then threaten you with daily $130 fines.
Shop-owner: Not removing it.
City: OK, here's 5 citations over a period of time.
Shop-owner: ok ok ok, I'll take it down.
Shop-owner: I've replaced it with a huge banner of the 1st amendment. So there.
City: You son of a bitch. We'll find a way to make you remove that too.
What do you think about this?
Should the man be allowed to display the mural?
Should he be allowed to display the First Amendment?
What if the mural were something one might consider obscene? (say, a graphic representation of iheartretards icons)?
Any murals you're particularly fond of?
What's the best date you ever had?
I think Chick Fil A has the best fast food, my roommate thinks Taco Bell does. TQC, where is the best fast food and why?
I'm sure that a credit agency is MORE expensive than fifty-four dollars, so my old doctor is losing money now. Also, if she needs fifty-four dollars that badly, she's in a place nobody can help, yes?
But more importantly, will you give me ideas of silly/good things to say to the credit agency when they keep harrassing me?
I already told them that my credit score doesn't matter much to me since I don't use credit, and the silence was great.
(P.S: I don't actually have the fifty-four dollars, so paying it isn't an option. Not to mention, insurance was supposed to take care of it.)

I recently got hired for a part-time job at a call centre. During the interview I realized that I didn't want the job, but I thought I might take it anyway because I wasn't sure if I could go back to my old job or not. Because of the nature of the job, I'm pretty sure that a lot of people they hire either don't show up for their first shift, or quit very soon after starting. A couple days after I was hired, my old job called me and said I could come back. My first shift at the new job was supposed to be today.
So, should I e-mail the new job to let them know I don't want it anymore, or just not show up? And if I e-mail them, what should I say?
Srs and non-srs.
Okay, I just e-mailed them. Since that's over and done with.. would you tell me your favourite job-hunting stories?
2. do you read a newspaper? which one?
3. if you have a cell phone, what kind do you have?

I have a dream where I'm walking through the neighborhood. I take a slightly longer way than normal and come to a bridge. I'm freaked out and turn around. Then it's a really short way back to the lake. I was freaked out by actual bridges today thinking about that dream.
2)Can you make up a meaning?
I don't know. My teacher would say I have unfinished business. and that my dad is a sex pervert.
3)Can you tell me something scary about your city?
well...I hear that if all our bridges collapsed, we'd be on an island!

I'm coming to the end of POTE and when I finished its sequel, World Without End, I was distraught and nothing could gain and keep my interest. I have already read The Other Boleyn Girl and Courtesan so even stuff like that would be good.
Thanks in advance!
I sold one of my favorite felt creations on Etsy. I'm mostly happy because I got a sale, but I'm a little wistful that I have to send it away.
or if you had a friend who went through the same thing, what would you ask them if you could ask them anonymously?
basically i'm looking for the most honest, intrusive questions imaginable.
Sunset Rubdown is coming out with a new album. supposedly. maybe. omg.

Everybody else: how is your day? Did you get enough sleep? How was the coffee/morning beverage?
There are 500+ employees so I can't exactly ask around with any hope of success.
One day, when you are dutifully doing your SO's laundry, you discover dried blood all over one of his/her shirts. Someone in your town has been recently killed. Do you get rid of the evidence or call the cops?
One night, the same SO comes home drunk and ready to beat you. You shoot him/her and he/she becomes a vegetable in need of around the clock care. Do you take care of him/her? Do you invite your new SO to come live with you and your vegetable?
What vegetable is your abusive SO?
This really happened so don't make fun.
I'd say people staring at me while I'm doing stuff. People. Stop STARING. I'm not that interesting, so what if I'm going out to check the mail when it's like -5 out, you don't need to stand at the door and gawk. Go away.
The idea of the tea lattes creep me out, and, while I like Caramel Apple Spice and teas, I want something coffeelike.

My ex is being really inconsiderate and bringing girls home. I feel like he is just trampling all over my feelings. When I asked him to not bring people over that he intends to have sex with or whatever, he said "oh...I'll try".
Am I being unreasonable? Is he?
and why is my heart all achey (no not physically)?
how can i fix it? :(
My ex of 10 months ago IM'd me last night, I guess him and his gf (the girl he cheated on me with) broke up and I really don't know why he contacted me. He said "just to say hi" and he wanted some kind of peace of mind that he wasn't a terrible boyfriend and I didn't think he was a colossal asshole. Except I do. I ended up having to block him because he got childish when I asked him to please not call me on the phone, because I don't really want to be bothered with that crap.
It kind of makes me nervous, because he's really my only ex-bf so I'm not very experienced with this stuff. He lives 6 hours away but I'm worried he's going to show up here and beat me up or something, idk I have irrational fears.
I work in a new office, and it's hella dry. Add to that the -37 weather outside, and I'm dying.
My hands aren't so bad, but my nails and cuticles are killing me.
Can you recommend a good product to help with that? I'd prefer something natural, and that doesn't cost 80 bajillion dollars. D
Have you ever had mono? Can you tell me about your symptoms and how long you hibernated for before you felt better?
If you don't give a hoot about my well-being, how often do you wash your sheets?

Still with the same boyfriend. You are watching the news and there's a report about al qaeda. You laughingly mention the best thing about the war on terror is you'd never noticed how hot asian guys are before. Boyfriend goes VERY quiet. He tells you he now thinks less of you and goes is a sulk to the bathroom. You ignore him and decide to putter about on the internet. After BEING PHYSICALLY SICK he storms back into the room and tries to drag you out of your computer chair. You hold firm to the arms of the chair but he persists until he manages to lift the chair off the ground and drags you onto the floor, pins you there and berates you, telling you Asians treat their women appallingly and stands over you shouting, 'You are nothing, you merely belong to your man, is that what you want?! I knew you were submissive but I didn't know you wanted THAT but I'll treat you like that if you want!' You manage to get up off the floor and he holds you tightly by your forearms stopping you from leaving the room. You struggle until you break free and run sobbing to the bathroom, terrified and full of wtf. His reasoning being when he was at school he worked in a shop owned by some asian people who apparently didn't show their women much respect.
So, when do you dump his ass tqc?
2.) Alternately, what is your current vehicle? Would you recommend it?
You've been bitten by a were-creature! You'll turn into a similar were-creature during the next full moon. Which animal will you turn into?

I had a new physical therapy tech yesterday. We got along pretty good. I found out he lives down the street from me! All of my friends have moved away and I get kinda lonesome for just-friends acquaintances. How can I ask my tech to hang out? I don't want to give him the impression that I'm asking him on a date or anything. Hes cute as a button but I'm not single and yeah.. I also don't want to come off as overly unprofessional or put him in an awkward situation. I'm totally okay with making myself feel weird. I'm just not all too keen on making others feel weird. Help a sister out?

I was considering having a bouncy castle, but in the middle f february, when it snows every year on my birthday, I can considering that I may have to relent and not do that. =( Stoopid snow. Either way, I still want to have a big kids party. I was planning on buying a mini-bouncy castle to have in the living room anyhow, and there will still be spacehopper races in the garden for those hardcore enough to brave the elements.
Anyhow, what I am after is some really cool kids games to play at my party. Do any of you remember any good ones that you always used to play I can incorporate in? Or introduce me to some new ones?
If there was a bouncy castle party in the snow, would you still go on the bouncy castle? (There is a snow cover so is just the cold that's the problem)
They have to be chldrens games, or childrens games with an adult twist! All suggestions welcomed.
I just bought some ham and cheese loaf, which I ate straight up when I was younger, and it's not as good as I remembered. My daughter loves it, though.

How hesitant are you to go to the doctor?
I have this bizarre, sharp pain in the top, outer portion of the cartilege of my ear and it's actually causing a twitch. I've been putting up with this for about 12 hours now and it is absolutely driving me crazy.

I regret snooping on my 16 year old brother's cellphone pictures and seeing naked pictures of his girlfriend who is about to come over. Oh, bad decision. Serves me right, though. I won't snoop again.
How much does someone's grasp of grammar and spelling (or lack thereof) affect your perception of that person?
My friend recently moved out of a house she was renting a room in, mainly because of another tenant, who was making things unbearable. She found the landlord's new Craigslist ad and emailed it to me. One of the things that caught my eye was her specification of "NO DRAMA EXCEPTED". I'm going to guess that she meant "accepted." I've never met the landlord, but based on this, I am assuming she is not bright.
honestly, where did that originate?
Also, why does my macbook's spell-check recognize the word 'touchscreen' but not its plural form? Whenever I type 'touchscreens' it gets a little red line under it.

i'm not talking murders or rapists. i mean just every day people who have no more flaws than anyone else, but they see themselves as this terrible person, while someone exactly the same with the same upbringing and similar experiences just doesn't hate themselves much, like me and my sister.
i've never studied psychology or anything and i've always wondered what goes on in our heads that makes a person so drastically different from another.
