How many of you go through religious confusion every once in a while?
*Raises hand*
How often?
About once or twice a year
What emotions do you go through?
Because my father is Seventh-Day Adventist, my mother raised Baptist, my ex step father Lutheran, and my stepfather Catholic, I've grown up around different sects of Christianity and started feeling jaded towards to religion, because a lot of Christians (now, not all, but a LOT that I came across) weren't accepting of other faiths and shunned the homosexual community. After reading up on the history of the Catholic church, I sort of looked at the Bible and said "Is this truth, or just a set of rules someone stuck here to control me?" And ever since, I've looked in to other things, knowing deep in my heart there's SOEMTHING out there - I've been to buddhist meditation groups, pagan ceremonies, I've read all different types of spiritual and religious literature, and I'm still not quite certain. But I always come back to Christianity. Go figure.
How do you deal?
I can't. I don't know. I try so hard to figure this out, and my mind never comes to any conclusion as to what I feel. I know there's something out there, I can feel it in my bones. I just don't know.

Do you have any piece of jewellrey you wear daily? Is there any story behind it?

Are there any basic words you ALWAYS mis-type?

And finally, the 'joke' from the back of my chips packet:

"Why was Cinderella so bad at baseball?"

Guys:
When you're pooping and you also need to pee, do you pee first standing up and then sit down for #2? Or can you pee sitting down while pooping? Because I usually do both simultaneously.

Kegger, or bachelorette/hooker and blow type party?

Do you like tea? Hot or iced? What's your favorite variety of tea? How do you take said tea?

Should I have a cup of hot tea? If so, should I have chai, earl grey, english breakfast, raspberry zinger, citrus burst, very berry, ruby tang or peppermint? Or should I have hot chocolate?

I have been having major trouble sleeping as of late. All of my normal tricks aren't working. I've tried sleeping pills, a glass of wine, a cup of hot tea, reading, watching tv, etc. A hot bath isn't an option, as I don't have a tub in my apartment, just the shower stall. Any suggestions on how I might be able to get to sleep?

For those that have been employed and/or are currently employed, what is the longest period of time you've gone without a job since you started working? How did you handle it?

2. What is the proper response to a coworker eating your entire medium-sized bag of baby carrots? I usually leave the bag out for myself, but offer them to others.

3. What is your favorite board game?

4. TQC, would you please help me figure out which city I should eventually move to? It should be a large, culturally diverse, American city where a decent number of bands stop at during their tours. A good public transportation system is a bonus.

Does it annoy you when you're watching a film/tv series/reading a book and a person in it will do something COMPLETELY out of character to them? Any specific examples of this?

It's one of my biggest peeves!!!!! I ask this as I just watched the latest Skins episode and I really couldn't understand why the characters were behaving like they were?

Oh yeah, what do you think about Skins?
LOL I have no pants!

Ok, so I'm debating on whether or not to travel home tomorrow. It would be completely impromptu and probably only for one night. It would probably cost me $100 in travel costs and $10 to a local show that my favorite band is playing. I most likely not visit my parents, and stay at a friends house. The show starts at 5:30, but they usually play last and the show ends by 10/10:30 usually. The train would go into Penn Station at around 6 and then from Penn to the show is about and hour and a half. I would get there by 7:30 and most likely see them.

Would it be worth it to go?
Would it be worth it to go for two nights?

For those who TL;DR:

How much do you love Spice Girls?

Are there any songs that were stupidly popular a while back, then you hear them again ages later and are completely flummoxed as to why they had such popularity?


I heard D.A.N.C.E. today and was totally underwhelmed, it's just all rather boring :( Also Gnarls Barkley- Crazy, WHY was that so insanely popular?

(sorry if I'm on a posting spree, my little sister had a nightmare so she asked if she could sleep in my bed and I'm not gonna go to bed until she wakes up I guess?)

questions about college?

I was wondering about the difference between a major and minor in college, specifically? I mean, how important is a minor in regards to your studies? Will all schools let you double minor?

Also, say I wanted to minor in a language, would I be able to study that language for a year abroad or would only a language major be able to do that? Also, if I were to study that language minor abroad, would I be able to study my major too or would that have to be put on hold? That's what worries me most. :/

If I am majoring and double minoring, can I also take some other electives - say, a language class or would that not be possible?

If I take a language classes, are they the same language classes a major in that language would take? I mean, you wouldn't need to major in a language if all you wanted was proficiency in that language and not culture, right?

And then I was wondering, will someone hire you if you have a minor in what they're looking for or is that not likely to happen? Say I major in English and minor in Anthropology - can I be an anthropologist? Totally hypothetical, by the way. I have no interest in anthropology as of yet, haha.

I'd really appreciate an answer to any one of my questions! I'm a high school junior who feels lost about where to go and what to study. Please and thank you!f

I used to be addicted to Yahoo's Launchcast Radio. On your radio player, you rated artists, albums, and songs... the higher your rating, the more they would play it on your personalized radio station. Yahoo would also recommend other artists based on your ratings... and also mix in "popular tracks". Loved it.

However.

Launchcast doesn't exist anymore! About a week ago, they replaced it with some crap CBS radio. Lame! Now I'm stuck without internet radio! HELP.

What's your favorite internet music site?

yer mugs inspired me

When I was in college I went to one of those pick-it-out-and-paint-it ceramic workshops and painted a coffee mug for my dad. On the outside it was blue with a guitar and the inside was painted yellow. It didn't look terrible but if you could actually see it, you could most certainly tell it was mediocre work done by someone with no talent. Yet my dad tells me he loves it and it's his favorite mug.

1)Have you ever given someone a handmade gift? Did they and do they still treasure it?
2)How often do you floss?

Are these shoes super frumpy? I got them for $30 yesterday and was psyched because hey, they're Danskos and are classic/comfortable/will hold up. But I am looking at them now and all I can think is "old lady shoes".

My day job is teaching 6th grade, so I need footwear that is practical, comfy, and business casual...but these are now looking kinda boring.

What should I wear them with? Should I just try to return them?

Have you ever had mono? what were your symptoms? how tired were you? my doc thinks that I do but gave me antibiotics in case it was not and all my symptoms have pretty much gone away. I have not got a blood test yet but I no longer have a sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and beyond feeling a little worn out I don't really feel sleepy

btw, have any of you had a swollen spleen? how can you tell if you have one? what does the pain feel like? cuz I mean I have little jabs at my side sometimes when I cough, how can you distinguish it from a swollen spleen?

Say you recently got out of a long-term (2 year) relationship. A few weeks later, you meet someone else and the two of you have an instant connection and things start to get serious pretty quickly. You do a lot of thinking, and you are sure that this new person is not merely a rebound, but someone with tons of potential for a meaningful relationship. Plus, you don't play the whole rebound game to begin with.

Your ex (who thinks the breakup was a mistake and wants you back) however is totally convinced that this new flame is a rebound because you got with them so soon after the breakup. Your ex thinks it is necessary that you tell your new flame that you just got out of a serious relationship not too long ago.

Is this necessary?? Or is this just the ex hoping that your new flame will be freaked out my the possibilities of you carrying a lot of baggage, and that you're merely using him/her to lift some of the weight?

I've googled certain terms with no luck. My two sisters are arguing, my little one wants to take songs and movies from my Itunes and put them on her Ipod. She claims it won't do anything. The older sister says Itunes will lock itself and protect you from doing it as its against copyright infringement and all that jazz. Can my little sister do it safely without messing up my Itunes?

Thanks.

Any suggestions on how to thin it out a bit? I was thinking vinegar + pineapple juice, but I'm not sure.

The lady I live with and I fight. A LOT. Enough that today, we both gave one another notice of my leaving. We don't get along, we fight constantly, and her terms of living here are insane. Like, she wants to conduct weekly inspections of my living space, makes me leave my door open despite the fact that she smokes in the house(which she didn't tell me about, even when I stated that I have severe asthma and can't live near smoking), and constantly leaves me notes saying things like "this dish has been on the counter for THREE DAYS!" when in reality it's been there for three HOURS.

The terms of her lease on the house state specifically that there is to be no smoking and no drinking in the house, rules which I have always followed, but which she disobeys EVERY DAY.

My question is: Am I justified in calling the lady who actually owns the house to report this? Or am I being rude and vindictive?
