The living dead seek to make the living dead

Poll #1409043 Zombilaya

The dead are rising from their graves everywhere! Larger cities with a larger population and considerable history are the most threatening. The zombies seek to eat the living or munch on their brains or something equally nefarious. As members of the living, what will you do?

Hole up in my home. Board the windows, bar the door
Same as above, except I'll hole up somewhere that offers more protection, like a bank or library
There's chaos in the streets! Time for a goshdarn looting spree
Armed with guns, bludgeoned objects and whatever else, I join the volunteer militia in wiping out these afterlife flip-floppers
The end is near! I fuck the first thing that moves, and if I'm not dead yet then I'll fuck the second thing that moves, and keep on this pace until the world ends
Travel by car to someplace safer, like the mountains or small new towns with no cemetary
With my trusty camera, my friends and I make a few zombie Punk'd videos which we'll put up on youtube
High-powered rifle, check. Crate of bullets so big a gorilla could sleep in it, check. Rooftop, check. This'll be way more fun than Halo
Go to church and pray for humanity's sins, that they be forgiven and God's wrath be diffused
Honestly, I don't watch the news or get out much. There's a good chance I might not even notice the dead were on the march
Go to my nearest pub with my best friend, my best girl, her roommate, roommate's SO and my mom, and we hole up while enjoying a few pints
THIS IS AWESOME! Mass chaos like this means I won't have to work anymore, won't have to worry about rent or money or student loans. I'm finally FREE!
If you can't beat em, join em. I put on my zombie makeup and walk among their ranks, groaning pathetically. Eventually, they'll leave town or get bored and go back to the grave and life will be normal again
Zombies obviously don't know any better. Brains? Raw human flesh? Barf. I make them some of my yummy burgers and that'll be enough to make them swear off human meat

Situation: we're down to one roll of toilet paper. There's 5 people in the house. My father in law made a rule that nobody poops until we get more tp. It's almost 2am and he will be gone by 7, my sister in law will leave around the same time and MIL will be gone by 11. I have to poop. There's still almost the whole roll left. I don't use a lot of tp at all. We will have more tp by noon. Do I break the poop rule, y/y?

Srs and non srs because both are generally entertaining.

What'd you do this weekend?
I babysat my dad (he's recovering from abdominal surgery), so we hung out at my house and watched old war movies all day on Saturday. It kinda sucked being inside all day on a PERFECT day, but it was nice to hang out with him anyway.

What's the last good deal you got that really made your day?
I got 6 dress shirts, 2 casual button-downs, a pair of jeans, and a pair of shorts for a hair under $200 yesterday. Pretty out of character since I almost NEVER buy more than one item when I get drug out shopping.

For those of you with a spouse/SO, does your family, as a whole, like them?
All of my family likes her...she's meeting the last grandmother tonight.

 I made a friend about 9 months ago. We were pretty close considering how new the relationship was. Then I found out I was pregnant and pretty much curled into a ball and slept for months on end. Now that the baby is two months old I'm slowly starting to feel like my old self.

I lost contact with this person while in hibernation and I want to contact him again because we were pretty awesome together. I am hesitant though because it's been so long and I sorta just up and left (he knew I was pregnant). 

What is the best way? He doesn't use email so thats out and I lost his cell number. He has a landline shared with three other roommates (one I really do not want to speak to) or I could bike over to his place in 20 minutes and leave a fancy letter for him with my new contact info on it.

Would it be a dick move to call Wachovia and be like "Look, thanks for assuming that because I live in Florida, I like the Dolphins, but I DO NOT. Please send me a plain card or a sunset or something"?

I'm brewing beer, a pale ale with 2 weeks planned for fermentation. It's been a week. The primary fermenter is a plastic bucket with a spigot. As of yesterday the airlock was still bubbling about 10 times per minute. I'm not sure why it hasn't dropped off yet.

Should I rack into my 5 gallon glass carboy as a secondary fermenter, or leave it alone?

If I leave it alone, should I just use the carboy as a bottling bucket? Not as convenient as the plastic bucket with spigot...

If you don't like beer... why not? How old are you? Are you male or female?

I'm going to Bonnaroo this summer with a bunch of people, but of course we want to spend the least amount of money as possible, which means not paying for the food there.

For those of you who have been, and for those who are wise and knowledgeable in general, what kind of non-perishable food would you suggest packing? We need food that's going to keep us going. Brand names are appreciated.

Also, can you give me some other words of wisdom about Bonnaroo? I'm going with some people who have been before, but anything you could offer would be greaaaat.

Star Wars

I'm always been a geeky kind of girl but for some reason I haven't seen even one of the Star Wars movies which makes me feel like I missed something, I only know the tidbits I gotten from the Internet, I know a little about the main characters and some quotations like "Luke, I'm your father" and such.

I want to see them though but I don't know which one I should start with, do you suggest I start with the one that came out first or the one that comes first chronologically?

What movies that you think you *should* have watched, have you never seen?

I'm playing Lego Star Wars on my Nintendo DS all day and even if I known that Darth Vader is from the dark side for a long time, I never heard him breathing before and seriously it sounds severally strained like he would need to see a doctor.

What would you diagnose him with and how much would it hurt his image as a badass to get some kind of inhalator? ;)

What weird home remedies have you tried? Did they work? (mixing household food items to improve your skin, hair, etc?)

I have weird discoloration above my chin and around my nostrils from my skin getting badly burned using products with salicylic acid.
(From quite a few years ago, when "Pure Zone" came out, and each of the 3 steps had 2% salicylic acid in it, including the moisturizer)'
Now the skin can't hold moisture and I'm constantly reapplying moisturizer (Mmm Jergens). For the longest time I tried Vitamin E oil, but it basically just comes back.
I don't have a dermatologist where I live..
I looked online and I've decided to try either: white sugar and olive oil with a bit of lime juice, or olive oil with lemon juice and an egg white.

Does anyone have any suggestions? :(

Your poop loves you, your poop loves me

The day after eating garden salad and 2 pieces of this tasty, peculiar grape cake, you take a poop. When you're done, you gaze into the toilet and you see something amazing. Your poop is PURPLE and it's fallen in such a way that it looks like Barney! And 2 kernals of corn have landed in the exact place where the eyes would be. This will never happen again. Who do you show this to?

How does Kramer in Seinfeld make a living? He's unemployed and has been unemployed seemingly forever, except for his brief stint at the bagel place in the Festivus episode (purportedly he's unemployed because the bagel place has been on strike... but still, if they're on strike he wouldn't be getting paid). He doesn't seem like the practical type who might have put away money at an earlier time of life. He's estranged from his mother so it's unlikely she supports him. Even if he borrows a lot of stuff (i.e. food) from Jerry, and dresses as if he hasn't shopped for clothes since the 70's, he still has to pay rent and utilities, which can be pretty stiff in New York City. He seems to have a gambling addiction, but I think he loses more than he gains in that, or else he wouldn't be trying to quit. Maybe he's certified cuckoo (not hard to believe) and on disability? Any theories?

My dad has Fox News on downstairs, and apparently the guy in charge of GM through their bankruptcy stuff is illegally parked in front of a fire hydrant at the courthouse or wherever they are.  They were playing live feeds from it and all that, and then some nice guy decided he'd mention it to a police officer, who took the license plate number.  I don't know if they'll tow the car or not, but there was some guy sitting in it talking on a cell phone in the passenger seat.  I stopped watching at that point, but you could tell the news guys were all excited to have this story to put out there.  It was on for at least five minutes, probably mention on and off before my dad turned to that station.

What's your view on this, TQC?  Is it funny, stupid, waste of time, what?  The news station obviously has plenty of time to fill, because they play news and people's takes on the news all day long.

Do you tend to take the blame for things out of your control, especially at work?

The FDA enacted a new rule that changed a lot of stuff at my job and made it take a LOOOONG time to donate plasma (some people were turned away it was taking so long) and a random donor points at me and goes, "You! You're always here when this kind of thing happens! You always try to keep me from donating." And another said, "I realize you are busy, but you can't just turn me away because of that!" (We turned him away because we had evidence of him donating elsewhere but couldn't verify it that day) So apparently, I am in charge of the FDA now. It's a nice promotion.

firearm ownership.



I have been thinking about purchasing my first firearm, the weapon in question is the http://www.kel-tec-cnc.com/su16a.htm.

I will be getting the requisite license and taking safety courses. My question for people who know anything about guns, is this a good beginner weapon? It seems to be that it would be based the probably inadequate research I have done. This is due to me being not quite being sure what I should be looking for, however I have had the following suggested to me: get a rifle, get one in a smaller caliber, get a weapon that is simple to operate and maintain, and make sure you are comfortable holding/firing it. I have also been told the marlin 60 is another good first weapon.

Alternate questions.

How do you feel in general about gun control, should there be more or less restrictions, ie. should automatic weapons be easier to obtain legally or should certain types of guns be harder to obtain?

Finally how do you feel about current gun regulations, are they effective or are they ineffective?

Do they restrict the right kind of features on weapons or are some of the restrictions too arbitrary? (such as color)

How old do you think the Muppets (from the movies and Sesame Street) are supposed to be?  For example how old do you think Kermit is supposed to be in most of the movies? Or Miss Piggy? Grover? Telly? Oscar? Gonzo? Do you see them as all the same age? Or different ages?

I have to write a persuasive speech for my speech class.

Should I do "Why it's important to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior" or "Why everyone should be a vegan"?

Which would you find more offensive?

Who annoys you more- Christians or Vegans?

Hiring practices?

So the economy is bad. Businesses aren't pulling in as much money as usual. What do you think is the most ethical or socially just course for a business to take with regard to its employees? (Note that I'm not necessarily asking for the most economically feasible -- which do you think reflects the best treatment and concern for the employees?)

1) Employ as many people as they can, knowing that they will not be able to give them very good pay/hours/benefits, but something is better than nothing.

2) Keep all their current employees, but don't hire anyone new. Cut benefits/pay/hours until they are in line with the budget.

3) Let go of some employees, until they can afford to retain those they have left with the same level of pay and benefits as they had before the economy went to shit.

After an extremely harsh and tough break up i am kinda trying to take stock of my life a bit. Since the relationship ended I have found sex quite emotionally hard with other people(well except for steven but thats a WHOLE other story) anyway since then i have decided to go..semi celibate you could say. I have decided I'm not just gonna go out and just fuck but im gonna try at least to hold off on  sex for a little while. I do feel my head is clearing slightly since. I kinda have it in my head that if im really lonely i can always give an old lover a booty call but if i meet someone nice i will hold off!

I was just wondering have any of you decided to go celibate after a break up or at other times in your lives?
Did you think it was helpful to you in anyway??
Did you find it as tough as me? haha
juat what do you think about the whole issue of female celibacy and celibacy in general?

is there a food that you don't like, but you wish you did?

i don't like tomatoes, but i wish i did because there are so many recipes that call for them that would probably be fantastic... if i liked tomatoes.

The other day my Dad was talking about peanut butter and mentioned his favorite peanut butter growing up discontinued. Well, I googled it and they started remaking it 2 years ago so I ordered him some for father's day as a small extra present. What else can go along with it giftwise?  He already has tons of jams/jellies, and the only thing he uses peanut butter for is PB&J.

One of my mom's best friends died today, he was only 56.

I'm at school an hour away, and as much as I'd like to run down there it's finals time for me and she'd be MORE upset if I failed all my classes. In fact she's already banned me from doing so. Using $100 dollars or less what can I do to make her feel better from afar?
