Do you use firefox?

When you use firefox, does it, after about two or three days, maybe less, suddenly stop working and anytime you try to go to a website, do that "loading" thing for about a second and then stop, like it's finished loading but it's still a blank page?

I have lots of downloaded illegal stuff on my computer like photoshop, movies, and rosetta stone. Might I have picked up something while downloading that would cause firefox to do this?

I can't stop jiggling my legs. Is this bad?

Repo! The Genetic Opera is just...a horrible movie. It's laughable, at best, yet my friends and I all love it to a rather unhealthy degree - I even traveled more than 200 miles to see it when Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich were taking the film reel from theater-to-theater on their little tour.

What is one movie that you absolutely love, even if most other people would say it's pretty horrible?

What's wrong with my body?

If the past few months:
1. My gums bleed sporadically, and always when I brush my teeth. I'm trying to be extra gentle and use a kiddie toothbrush, but they still bleed.
2. I have diarrhea every morning. This has gone on for a while, and I usually associate it with dairy, but not lately.

I have always been prone to fainting/low blood pressure, and I take Yaz (HBC) and 20 mg Adderall XR daily. I also occasionally smoke, have O- blood and am in otherwise good health.

Srs and non-srs answers only. I don't think things in themselves warrant a doctor's visit, but I just worry sometimes.

What was that?

If you see something suspicious, but not alarmingly so, do you take a mental note of the situation?

I drive myself crazy doing this and I'm wondering if other people do too. For example, last night I heard tires squealing at the end of my road. I look out the window just in time to see a pickup turning the next corner at a high rate of speed. I continue to look and see another pickup roll through the stop sign and continue down my street making the exact same turn as the first one. I make a mental note of the trucks and the time and then scour the papers today (and probably tomorrow) looking for an incident that I may have witnessed part of.

It's horrible! You must destroy all the work of one especially popular, gifted creator, while granting the other one eternal youth and fertile creativity. No one else will ever be able to enjoy the works of the deleted artist, and within a year all knowledge of their contributions will have faded from collective memory. Consider not only the existing materials, but any future works of supernaturally-inspired genius.

have you taken diet pills before? prescription or non, either one. which kind? did they work? how much weight loss did you see, and at what rate? did you increase your amount of exercise or improve your diet, providing you were already trying to lose weight and taking both of these steps before the pills?
serious answers only, please. and fyi, i am planning on both asking my doctor similar questions as well as retesting my thyroid and any other recommended tests when i get health insurance again. i am legitimately overweight, incorporating exercise into my daily routine, vastly improving my diet....and continuing to put on weight. IT IS THE MOST FRUSTRATING THING TO EVER HAPPEN IN MY PERSONAL LIFE, EVER.
have any of you had anything similar happen? how did you solve it?

Help with an 80's music video

Good morning all. There was a music video that came out when I was about 3 or 4. This would have been 1985-1986ish. I can remember a woman singing, and she had a white veil of some kind, and then there was something about a stone table. I seem to remember another woman laying on the table. But hell if I can remember what video it is.

Do any of you have ANY idea what video I'm talking about? Thank you!

Recently my 8-month old kitten has started acting like a real jerk. She's constantly throwing things down from my desk, going into places she shouldn't, stealing stuff from the bathroom (q-tips and cotton balls), sometimes attacking my feet, etc.

She's a shelter kitty (got her at 3 months), spayed, has plenty of toys and a buddy to play with (3-year old male cat from the same shelter, they get along very well). I give her plenty of attention when she's not being annoying. I'm on spring break this week so it's mostly just me home all day - usually nobody is home between 7am-4pm; I'm thinking this may be part of what's making her freak out.

Is there anything I can do to calm her down or is this just an annoying, destructive phase that I just have to put up with until she grows out of it?

I'm a student, and my professor invited me to have lunch with him to go over possibly pursuing a master's (he's in charge of the graduate program in his dept). I think he's cool, I'm not really interested in a master's in his dept since I'm from another major, but I thought I might as well see what it has to offer.

Anyway, what ist he proper etiquette for splitting the bill? Is it covered by him since he invited me, or should I be a  polite student and be insistent on covering it, or should I insist we split it if he tries to cover it?

1. Are you a lazy lesbian? Don't you know you'll never land a man by cropping your hair and flanneling out?
2. Do you think there's a point for the clitoris, or is it just there for the guy to lick to help him 'give up his sperm'?
3. Vaginal penetration sex is a 'good' kind of hurt. So is childbirth pains. But anal sex pain is 'bad' and God clearly is showing his distaste for 'upthebutt' loving by making it hurt. Do you agree with this?
4. Male masturbation is indirectly related to the possible depopulation of villages. What should we men do with our sperm to help remove our guilt?
5. When a man loves a woman and a little whoppie is made, at what point does the talking accented tomato come onto the scene? And if the talking tomato represents the product of spermy delight, what was daddy trying to penetrate the tomato with his spoon penis in the earlier analogy?

Can you think of any act that lacks a selfish element (either in cause, or in effect)?

Ex: sacrificing yourself to save another is somewhat selfish because you are satisfying your belief that "this person deserves to live...even if at the cost of my own life"...which seems to outweigh (even if temporarily) your own desire to live. Them living makes you happier (selfish) than if they died, even if you experience that happiness for a fraction of a second before death.

I believe that every act has a SELFISH element to it whereas some acts can lack a SELFLESS element. I think selflessness isn't the absence of selfishness (because it's always there), rather it is the degree to which an act beenfits others. Agree/Disagree, and why?

EDIT: The question may be clearer this way: "Is there such a thing as a truly altruistic act?"

Grocery shopping spree

I have up to $50 to spend on groceries. The trick is I have to spend the money all at one location where I'm only going to be for maybe 20 minutes and I have to be able to fit whatever I buy into one backpack. The groceries must be non-perishable as I'm going to be storing them in a place that has no refrigerator for five days, plus on an overnight bus trip.

So, which non-perishable groceries should I spend as much money as possible on? I don't want to buy rice as I have plenty at home and don't eat it that often, but what else would be useful?

I'm going to coffee with someone at 5:00. She dated a friend of mine pretty seriously, fucked him up pretty bad, then started dating someone in a music scene I follow and sort of started going up in the world after that. She's been very emotionally manipulative to my friend she once dated, abandoned a friend and I at a museum the first time we met (we were Internet friends)... just big dick moves. Essentially, she and I have had issues in the past. If she's a complete smug bitch like she has been the past couple of times we've met up, should I call her out on it then or just forget it and never talk to her again, even though I will run in to her at every single concert I'll ever go to ever again?
Last time we met up, she gave me a copy of her boyfriend's band's new single for free. Should I pay for it or give it back if things go badly?

I got an industrial piercing a year ago and I STUPIDLY touched it last week without washing my hands. Now it is extremely red and EXTREMELY sore, which I'm guessing means it did not like getting touched with dirty hands.

Anyway, there is no iodine-free salt at the pharmacy and I don't have time to go downtown to get some today, but if I don't clean this thing soon I think my ear's going to explode. Or fall off. Or something equally terrible. I can get unscented antibacterial from the pharmacy, or I can use some contact lense saline solution. I'm really confused because half of the websites I am finding say no to antibacterial and contact solution, and the other half say they're fine to use. Can anyone with piercings experience help me out? Contact solution, antibacterial, or just plain water until I can get to the store and buy some sea salt?

I got knocked up about 5 years ago.  I had one friend who was one of those crazy freetards.  The whole time I was pregnant she used her arsenal of lingo, moo, crotch dropping, etc.  Well needless to day she wasn't invited to my baby shower.  Later I found out she moved around and became a prostitute to support her heroin addiction.  Low and behold she's now knocked up.  She moved back to our town after her junky loser boyfriend (who is also a convicted child molester) said he wanted nothing to do with her or the baby.  Suddenly she wants to be all buddy buddy with me.  She contacts me to go to her baby shower next month.  Should I be the bigger person knowing she's had a rough past couple of years?  Should I go to the baby shower?  What would you do?

So in the land of all that is awkward...

the guy I'm dating said that I could sleep over (I live pretty far away) we're going out tomorrow night. Do I ask him if I'm sleeping over? How does one do this while avoiding painful awkwardness?

if you don't care:
What was the last thing that made you laugh?

The girl that I tutor thought only white schools had buses in the South to *avoid traffic problems*. GAH!

How would you feel if you found out a professor/teacher/T.A. was grading you more leniently because they were attracted to you?
-I would be pissed. I'm surprised that most people wouldn't be, actually.

How should I blow my tax rebate? Aside from hookers and blow.
-I'm thinking of buying one of those Diane+ cameras from UO. Waste of money, I know, but I've been wanting one.

Any interesting plans for this weekend, TQC?

letter of recommendation dilemma

I am applying for grad school this coming fall semester, and just I found out that the professor who I feel would write the strongest letter of recommendation for me is leaving on sabbatical at the end of this semester. Is it acceptable for me to ask for one before he leaves (with reasonable notice, of course), or is that too early? Any other ideas? I would really like a letter from him.

1. Anyone ever use Cash 4 Gold?

i have a gold birthstone ring and the stone has a huge crack down the middle. i'd rather not just throw it away.

2. Anyone live near Grand Forks, ND (or know of someone who lives around here) and is interested in various apartment things? I am moving in 1 1/2 months and am only taking what fits in my car.

So I had a verruca that I managed to get off with gel after about 6 months. It's now come back with two 'friends'.
My question is this - is there a quick easy way to get rid of them so they don't come back?
ETA: A verruca is an inverted wart. They're found on the bottom of the foot.

ETA: Also, is there a website like modcloth.com for the UK?
