Veggie Sushi

How much would you expect to pay for a vegetable roll?

Considering it's fish-free, would you go to just about any sushi place for a vegetable roll? Or would you still go to a good quality place?

Weird clicking sound, buffering videos on youtube...

I've had my MacBook for about a year now, and recently there has been a weird clicking sound.

I would be watching a youtube video, then the audio would cut out, and the video would pause. It would start to play a few seconds later and do it all over again. I'm thoroughly confused, and wondering why it does that.

When I go to put the volume up or down, it lags as well, when Its going through this moment. I can't play music or anything, either when it happens, because the weird (low) clicking sounds make it stop.

I've tried re-starting my computer, and sometimes that works, but not all the time. I just don't understand, and would like to know if anyone knows what might be wrong?

...assuming, of course, that I don't need to bring it to the Genius Bar at an Apple store. I'm trying to avoid that for now.

Thank you in advance! ♥

There was some crying this evening and now my head is starting to hurt from being congested.
Should I take some tylenol in hopes that it will stop me from having the mother of all headaches when i wake up?

Modern Day Slavery Questions

First question post, please slap me if I'm out of line.  I like questions, they help us learn about ourselves and the universe.  Here are some difficult ones.  Think carefully before answering.

1.  Do you believe you are free?

    1B.  If you do, what would it take to prove otherwise?

2.  Is it possible that slavery never really went away, but instead only changed form?

3.  Is is possible that much of what you have been taught is misinformation designed to keep you fearful, docile, and obedient?

4.  If you've ever realized you're a slave and concluded that everyone should be free if they aren't harming others, then what, if anything, have you decided to do about it?

I was invited to a bridal shower in June (it's a surprise party if that makes a difference), but I am not going. Am I still required to buy a gift for it? ( My mother is going, so she could bring it for me) I have only been invited to one other bridal shower in my life and I went to that one, so I don't know what you are supposed to do gift-wise if you are invited but don't attend.

TQC, I remember reading a website a few years back. It had content that was quite old (late 90s) but it was pretty interesting. It was forum-based (I think) but it still had normal webpages, like guides. It had a whole variety of guides on how to do things like picking locks, hacking computers, getting a new identity, so on and so forth.

Any idea what this website might be?

My phone is a flaming piece. It's just mine, as my husband has the same model (Vu) bought the same day and his is fine. It likes to restart and then act like it's frozen on the load screen, only to keep flashing the load screen until in some awkward gesture it literally GIVES ME THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH, even though I'm not even running mobile Windows.

Tomorrow I am going into Best Buy (where I got it) and try to get them to give me a new one instead of trying to referb a death dealing hunk of shit. I've heard they'll want to send it off (for up to 30 days) and if I try to send it back to LG, they won't even give me a loaner and will have it up to 14 business days. I bought it on 2.18.09, so it isn't even 3 months old (also, I have the receipt, box, etc and their Black Tie Plan).

HOW CAN I CONVINCE THEM TO JUST GIVE ME A NEW ONE INSTEAD OF TRYING TO PLACATE ME WITH A LOANER AND THE PROBABILITY THAT THIS PHONE WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE MY LIFE HELL? So far my thoughts include a pipe bomb to the face of anyone who tries to negotiate with me, but I don't know how effective that would be.

If any of you get, or have gotten, health insurance through United Healthcare (typically through employers, I'm guessing), how long did it take to receive your ID cards? They started taking deductions from my paycheck last pay period -- so, last Friday -- and I still haven't received my ID cards, despite the website saying that my benefits are in effect the week after deductions start. I plan on calling them once they open at 8, but I was just curious if any of you used them.

Those of you who drink alcohol, if you could have a drink or two while on the job, would you? Assume that your job is something that you can do safely with a drink or two in you. Said drink could be taken at any time—during your lunch, toward the end of your shift, whatever.

Why or why not?

Sorry for a vaguely morbid question, but...

If you had to die in a city other than the one in which you live, where would you choose to pass away? Assume a peaceful rather than violent end of days--I'm not talking about getting machine-gunned in the slums of Rio. No, passing in your sleep at home at age 90 is not an option.

I wouldn't mind passing on in Paris, Bangkok, or Istanbul, personally, ideally in a chaise longue under an umbrella on some rooftop or balcony with a nice view, or in an old wooden house along a canal.

I need meal planners, TQC.

Tonight I'm cooking up some chicken breasts in red pepper & garlic marinade, with "Italian seasoned" oven fries (olive oil + basil and thyme), and a salad with tomato/oregano vinaigrette.

What kind of wine would go with all of that? I don't like dry wines with a lot of tannin in them (my bf and his brother will drink "whatever").

If I buy a loaf of bread for dinner, which should I get: walnut-currant or apple-beer bread?

Have any of you guys ever enjoyed being at work with your co-workers more than being outside of work?


I used to be super social and have lots of great friends, but due to some slow changes in mah life that has changed. Now, I look forward to going to work for my social interaction. It's stress-free because you can kind of deflect any awkwardness in conversation by actually focusing on your job. I totally love being at work more than being at home when I have to worry about bills and problems and stuff. Is that very weird?

At the moment I am working on a three minute radio documentary that I have to edit (i.e. split and put together pieces of audio that I've recorded, maybe include sound effects and have underlying music). At school we use Pro Tools, but I'm a lot more comfortable with Garageband and I can do it from home without doing the 40-minute commute to university. So my question is, is Garageband sufficient enough to make a good radio documentary? Are there any other good FREE demo versions of any other programmes that I could use? I' almost downloaded the Reason demo but then I read that it quits after 20 minutes and you can't save or export.

A couple months I bought my boyfriend a pair of cargo shorts from Old Navy, 'cause they were cheap and he really likes them. When I brought them home, he tried them on quickly to made sure they fit and that they looked good, then took the tags off, and put them in his drawer until spring.

He just put them on, sat down, and the seam split down the thigh. They're the right size, it was just crappy stitching. They've never been washed.

Do you think Old Navy will let me exchange them? The closest store is half an hour away and I'll go out there if you guys think the odds are good (awkward internet girl doesn't like using the phone). I don't have the receipt, or the tags. Or even the bag.

ETA: Problem solved. They'll exchange on the spot if they're defective, or send me a merchandise credit in the mail if not. Either way they will take them back. The question still stands, though:

Don't you hate when you buy something and it falls apart?

Poor communication skills and shady jobs

Have you ever had a day where you felt like you sucked at communication?
I totally feel like everyone is misunderstanding what I'm saying today and it's driving me nuts.

I started a job the 20th of April, and the place seems mildly shady. Our pay periods are the 1-15 and 15-End of month. It's the 7th. I haven't been paid yet for the 20th-30th (nor has anyone.)
Does that seem like a really long time to run checks for anyone else?
How long does it usually take you to be paid after the pay period?

Speaking of being paid, I haven't filled out a W-4, two and a half weeks in.
What would you say the chances that they're withholding taxes are?
What would you guess are the chances I'm being paid under the table?
(I'd say 1:1000 that they're withholding taxes, and about 100:1 that the check is just a handwritten check that they give me, or worse.)

John Oliver (The Daily Show) is going to be in Atlanta one day and Nashville just a few days later. I can't go to the Atlanta show (21+admittance, it's two weeks before my 21st birthday, lame), but I CAN go to the Nashville show.

Here's the scoop on the shows:

Atlanta: I can't go, but my friend can, and whilst I have seen John perform live, she has not. And she can pick her own seat on the website. On a weekend, so we can stay the night in ATL. It's about five bucks more expensive than the Nashville show.

Nashville: We can both go, but we can't pick our seats on the website, so we might be sitting in the way far back. On a Monday, so getting home for work the next day would be a pain. It's about five bucks cheaper than the Atlanta show.

What show should we choose?


Never mind, we're going to Nashville. lol.

So uh, what's up?

in the office where i work, we have a kitchen that everyone uses. the kitchen gets really dirty sometimes. for example, one time there was a pile of dirty dishes in the sink that were left there over a long weekend, and we had to return to work to a sink full of dishes with moldy food caked onto them. there are tons of old stains from spilt things in the fridge. one time, someoen left some food in tupperware that got moldy and just really really stinky.

so now, HR has made up a "cleaning duty" list, where every thursday, someone from the office is assigned to clean the kitchen.

is this normal?

is this fair?

why should i have to clean up someone else's mess? i clean up my own messes. it's not my fault other people are not capable of cleaning up after themselves.

I live in Indiana where jobs are scarce. I want a job for the summer. I have the option of either staying here in indiana with a somewhat low chance of a job, or I can go down to San Antonio, Texas for the summer, where ill have  a much better chance. It would be a vacation in and of itself, because ill see old friends, plus a good chance at getting a job so i can save up some money. Also i would most likely be able to stay where i would stay completely free in exchange for watching kids. the only things that makes me unsure are 1, that my boyfriend of a year MIGHT be moving out to California this fall and I would like to have time with him, and 2, if i dont get a job down there it would be quite a waste of money to get myself there and back.

Polo or no polo...

Would wearing a tucked in polo shirt, black slacks, leather belt and leather dress shoes be "professional" enough for a retail interview?

I ask because when i went to the first interview i wore a sport shirt, which is a long sleeve, button up, no tie kind of shirt. And the rest of the guys that were there had polos. I felt over dressed.

What defines "cultured"?

What does one have to know or do in order for you to consider that person cultured? I have given it some thought, and I'm not sure what the answers should be. Each list I come up with tends to define "pretentious" instead.

However, one certain element is the ability to speak one's own language correctly. In America, this would mean speaking English with little or no accent, displaying mastery of such intricacies as subject-predicate agreement, having a broad vocabulary, and using minimal slang.

This is only one element of being "cultured" ... what are some others? What books does a cultured person read, what music do they listen to, etc?

I rent out rooms in my house mostly to college students. It's the time of year when people are leaving, so I have ads advertising the rooms in several places, including craigslist which I have had good luck with in the past.

This time, though, the only responses I have had have been from robots. They all claim to be well-educated American or English women currently living overseas and planning to move here. The funny thing is, they don't ask for anything. One of them asked for our mailing address so they could send us a money order, but that doesn't seem very sinister. They could get that from Google if they really tried. The rest of them didn't even ask.

What the hell, TQC? What do these bots want from me? I just can't imagine what kind of scam this could possibly lead to.

They worship you and think you're perfect

Hurrrr

My hair is annoying. It's neither curly nor straight. On a good-ish day, it will either do nice, even waves or these half barrel curl things. On a bad day it's uneven and very frizzy and puffs out. I wish it would just choose one way to be, but it has a mind of its own, and it won't let me straighten it without freaking out, either.

Based on this, do you think getting a perm to try to get some shape in my hair would be a good thing or a very bad thing? It's either that or attempting thermal reconditioning again (which worked once but didn't work the next two times I tried it), because I need my hair to be either straight or curly, dammit!

How did you discover Live journal?
on your own, friend, google...

Is there anyone you have talked to on here that you would want to meet IRL?

My brother told me about LJ right before he died

There is 1 person I would meet if given the chance and she was a friend of my brother. They also met on LJ.

tqc, make my choices for me

TQC, I have a 2000 word paper due tomorrow at 5:30pm for my political science class. I have collected all of my data/research, and have written my introduction. At this point I feel like it will be a fairly easy paper to write.

I am bone tired- finals are next week. I have been working really hard all week, getting up early and going to bed late. I studied intently all day today until the evening, then I went and played soccer for 2 hours. I am beat.

I could finish my paper tonight, but it would require an extraordinary amount of effort and it may not be as good as it could be if I just did it tomorrow with a fresh mind. I could do it tomorrow but if I come across any bumps or blocks, I will be extra pressed for time (but I don't think this will happen). However, I don't have anything to do tomorrow so I could devote the whole day to writing it. I've written papers the night before they were due before, and I usually do well, but never have I written a paper ON the day it was due, so the thought of doing that makes me feel weird.

If you were me, what would you do?

Have you ever gotten injured while doing something so mundane you wouldn't have thought it would lead to you getting hurt? walking, sneezing, coughing, whatever.

I keep getting minor whiplash from turning my head to sneeze so I don't get phlegm on my monitor and keyboard.

How do you feel about an older (like 30+) stranger calling you, "sweetie" or something like it?

I mean it in the sense that you do something polite, and they say, "thank you, sweetie." Or you make a mistake, and they say, "That's okay, sweetie". Not in a patronizing or perverted way at all.

If you found out that your SO was on webcam with a girl/guy, would you be mad? Is it cheating, even if it was innocent? What if it isn't innocent?

 

ETA: This girl/guy is a good friend of your SO.

ETA2: By not innocent, I mean.. showing each other private body parts..

Rocking the Boat

Why are people so afraid to rock the boat or disturb the status quo, even when they are fully aware that things need to be changed or a policy is silly? How is it that as soon as you decide to create some waves, most people abandon you?

So a few years ago, a girl was getting out of a train and fell between the train and the platform. She didn't listen to her friends or the conductor when they told her not to move and she was hit by another train as she tried to climb up the platform.
She was 16 and so drunk she was nearly three times over the legal limit.

Is the railroad at fault for having a large gap?
Is it totally fucked up that the newspaper didn't mention this girl was drunk until a few months into the investigation?
If you saw this happen, would you contact the newspaper or police about it or mind your own business?
