I am not sure if I am wording this right but, let's give it ago, anyway.

Are you the type of person who shares underwear? For example, you are at your friend's house and for whatever reason something happens to your underwear and you need a new pair. Your friend says, "That's okay. I have a pair you can borrow." Are you the type to go for this? Or do you think this is gross?

The few people I've talked to about this think this is no big deal as long as the underwear is clean. I think it's nasty.

What are some things that you will ABSOLUTELY not share?

There is this guy friend of mine that I've known for roughly 7-8 years. His birthday was a few days ago and I totally forgot! I'm wanting to get him a small gift but the problem is... I have no fucking clue what to get!

What do you guys suggest? Nothing too fancy. Maybe a little bag of candy plus some other stuff. He doesn't even want me to buy him anything, but I do.

have you taken speech in college?
How was it? 
I'm taking it this semester and I'm really really nervous.  I have horrible problems even talking to one person, like someone I never talk to I just stutter and mumble and sweat and my heart pounds.  
Any advice?

So I recently started talking to my ex fiance again after not having spoken to him in 5+ years. We broke up about 7 years ago. My husband is fully aware and approves of us talking. There is no romantic interest there. Having said all this:

WHY are my family and friends FREAKING out about this?? Whenever I mention to someone that we're talking again they all react the same way: with shock and the question "Does your husband know???"

Is what I'm doing somehow wrong? Is it impossible to be friends with someone you used to date? I'm happily married and there are no romantic ties left with him. My husband doesn't give a crap. Why do they all care? He and I were always better friends than lovers anyways. They keep saying they're mad at him for how he treated me but it was seriously so far in the past. We were young and stupid. If I can forgive him and he can apologize, it's all good on my end.

tl;dr version: Is it okay to be friends with an ex?

My dad added me on Facebook after barely seeing/talking to him for the past 20 years. He only did so after adding my mom, which led to me sending him a message, and him acting like I never added him a million times. Um. Yeah.

Who else has daddy issues?

What is your favorite scent of air freshener?
Do you prefer to use a spray, a diffuser, a plug-in, or something else I'm forgetting about?

I hate sprays because they make me sneeze, and I don't want to keep candles burning, but my room gets all stuffy due to a lack of a/c and windows. So I bought a vanilla diffuser set and I don't think it's working as well as i'd like it to.

Monster policy

Pretend you're a scary monster, and you've just been hired to the biggest corporation in monster world, but you're some entry level peon.
When they hire you, they hand you a thick booklet containing company policy, dress code, and other important rules and information related to your job.

What's in your booklet? Quote a few sentences, or maybe a paragraph or two.

who else feels like crap tonight?

i've got a bladder infection from hell and i'm slightly anemic, so i'm weak and tired and haven't had an appetite in over 24 hrs. what do you do to feel better when you feel like this? sleep is an option, but i'd like to stay up another half hour or so.

what languages do you speak?

if you speak more than one language how did you go about learning the other ones?

what is the best way for me to start learning a new language? like what materials do i need? i plan on doing this on my own not taking a class i might take a class later on.

my goal is to learn french and japanese im not sure which one i want to start with but probably french.
should i spend a big chunk of money of rosetta stone or that a waste of money?

anything i should know when learning a new language?


Is it even still possible to travel to Europe from North America by sea as a passenger?   When people say "I'm going on a cruise", they usually mean ships that travel in coastal waters and make port every few days while drunk people party and fall overboard.  I'd like to know if it is possible to sail from New York to London anymore?

So, I couldn't sleep last night, and I have to make a seven-hour drive by myself today.  I'm not all that tired right now, but I'm worried that if I get on the road, I'll get sleepy. But if I wait until I get tired and fall asleep, I'll probably end up sleeping way too late, and will have to make a good part of the drive in the dark (and in potentially rainy weather).

WHAT DO I DO? Drink loads of caffeine and tough it out (I would pull over if I was in danger of falling asleep), or sleep a bit and hope the weather doesn't get too bad? Or something else?

Also: What was the last ridiculously long drive you made?

Etiquette Q

Last Monday the work ladies threw me a bridal tea and I received a card with $150.00 to put towards our honeymoon. It was thrown inside a card signed by pretty much everyone in the office.

Here's where I get confused: not every person who signed the card was at the shower. Furthermore, out of the people who signed said card, I am not sure who chipped in for what, or if they did at all; in which case wouldn't it be awkward to get a thank you card? Should I try to find out who chipped in? Should I thank each person on the card just to be safe?

I know there's lots of married ladies around - I'm sure one of you encountered a similar situation.

I think I have quite a good idea for a new website.

It would be called slagbook.

Basically it would trade information on chicks, such as rating for looks(legs, tits, ass, face out of ten), what kind of kinky stuff she does, where she lives, who long it takes to get her in the sack, etc. Subscribers could browse women by location and photo. And guys would have the option to write reviews, there could be a message board, etc.

I would need to host my website in somewhere like Afghanistan to prevent being sued. But it strikes me as a real win, win. Slutty girls would get more offers, frigid girls would be left alone and guys could find the really easy chicks quickly and easily.

What do people think?

EDIT- To be less sexist I would have a sister brother site for slutty men too.

So, Johnny Depp recently announced that his dream role would be to play Carol Channing (singer/actress). She has since given him her blessing to do so.

Do you think Depp would be able to pull off a good performance as Channing?
I think he would. He seems to have an ability to transform himself into completely different people even moreso than I think most actors do. I think he'd be able to pull off Channing's look, voice (speaking, I don't think he could do her singing voice) and personality and do it amazingly well.

Do you think this movie has a chance at actually getting made?
I hope so. I'd love to see it if it does.

Why did the Black Eyed Peas choose to put Hebrew in their new song, "I Gotta Feeling"?  It seems like an odd choice for a hip-hop group...

I love that song, but "Mazel Tov" and "l'chaim" seem a little out of place, is all.  at least the phrases are consistent with the party flavor.

For instance, do you stick it on the back of your tngue then drink water or do you take a sip of water and then pop the pill in?

Finger fetish

I bought my very first ring a few days ago. I started out wearing it on my right ring finger, and it fit a touch loosely, but pretty well. Then over the course of the day it became too loose so I switched it to my middle finger. When I took it off that night I almost couldn't get it off because it was too tight. So the next day I went to put it on my middle finger and it wouldn't go on, so I put it on my ring finger again. Then it became too loose again and I had to put it on my middle finger. Now I'm wearing it on my middle finger and it seems like it's almost too loose for my middle finger now.

Is it normal for fingers to swell and un-swell this much?

so the other day i posted about my alarm randomly getting unplugged. I finally talked to my roommate two days after it happened and she said hers was just blinking like the power went off. We kind of brushed it off just thinking it was something weird that happen. Then this morning HER alarm was unplugged! we decided that it's totally fucking creepy and we think someone came into our apartment. I called the apartment manager and he's sending someone over asap to change our locks. He was concerned with there being two girls alone here.

I'm really fucking nervous about spending the night here now. Should I call my brother and make him let me stay at his house for awhile? Will the change of locks fix this? I don't think anyone else has a key to our apartment but who knows! Why is this person coming into our apartment and unplugging our alarm clocks?

Acts 15 says: 10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?

Deuteronomy 30:11-14 says: 11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

Poll #1434234 Jumbotron Kiss Cam

You're at a sporting event with your closest friend of the opposite sex, when at some point, they start panning around the Kiss Cam on the Jumbotron, focusing in on couples, and the crowd starts chanting until they kiss, and then the crowd goes apeshit. Suddenly you see yourself and your friend up on the big screen, and everybody around you turns their head and starts shouting 'KISS KISS KISS'. It may be a little awkward, since the cameraman doesn't seem to be willing to move his sights off you until you two kiss. The entire stadium sees your hesitance and, in unison, starts to holler. Five seconds turn into ten seconds and the crowd's getting impatient.. What do you do?

Ignore them all. They mean nothing to me. I'm not kissing
I give a quick kiss on the cheek and hope that appeases the angry mob
Quick peck on the lips which means nothing but hopefully satisfies the throngs of onlookers
I grab him/her and start making out with them
Stand up and give the camera the middle finger

Same scenario, except this time you're with your SO. The camera focuses on the two of you and you're about to lean in to kiss, when suddenly, someone in the row behind you grabs your SO by the hair, pulls their head back and starts kissing them. This person is the same gender as you, except younger and hotter. The crowd hoots and hollers and enjoying the voyeurism, and the cameraman, seemingly titilated, keeps filming your SO and this bimbo/himbo making out. You're upset but understand that everything's being shown to thousands of people on the big screen. What do you do?

Grin and pretend this isn't bothering me. I'm just being civil as long as the camera's on us
Fuck the camera. I grab the bitch's hair, yoink him/her off my SO and start throwing down
This is pretty hot. I join in, kissing my SO on the other side of his/her face
Break down and start crying right then and there
Leave the seat, seething. Someone's got a lot to apologize for later
This is kind of funny. I join in on the hollering
Pour my drink over the floozy
Pour my drink over my two-timing SO
Pour my drink over both of them
Stand up and start flicking the middle finger to the camera
