Alright- I gotta ask because it is hard to find any stats on this elusive action.

Ladies, how many of you experience female ejaculation?
How often?
How much do you produce?
Does it happen repeatedly? (more than once in a sex session?)
Is it a squirt, a gush, a dribble?

Seriously- it's so odd that this bodily function is just recently being looked into. Wtf science...

How does an intrinsically jittery, hyperactive person develop a calmer personality? Can it even be done, or is one bound to their nature? Serious answers, please.

TQC, I've been dating my boyfriend for about 4 days. No exaggeration there. We've been taking things pretty slowly, per both of our decisions, and so tonight for the first time we walked holding hands and I kissed him goodbye on the cheek. My friend was walking back to my place with me after we parted ways, and she got totally surprised that we hadn't kissed mouth-to-mouth yet. TQC, does it make me that prudish? I mean it's not like I'm not planning on it - but I didn't think if we'd only been dating for a scant number of days that us not kissing yet was such a big deal.

If part of the new health care plan was that only African Americans got to choose their insurance while everyone else had to "wait in line like everyone else" and you are a black person, would you be stoked or think that was racist?
If you're white would you think it was racist?
If you are any other minority, would you think it's racist?

Socialization problem?

I find that I have trouble socializing and meeting strangers in public. I wouldn't go to say that I'm incredibly shy, I just don't know what to say and what I could talk about with someone I don't know. I'm frankly tired of myself being so anti-social and unapproachable, so I'm attending orientation this year because I want to meet new people and broaden my social circle.

How do I make myself approachable? How can I blend into a conversation without feeling left out? Does asking people what they're majoring in or what they think of the school etc. be enough as a start of a conversation? I find that those topics don't seem to last long and cools down pretty fast.

I hate when people use a ton of periods in text messages. I know a girl who with text me three sentences with all of them separated by "......" and then one nice one at the end "............." This absolutely annoys the piss out of me. It's really to the point where I can't even text her.

Since it's officially just about that time, do you have any 9/11-related stories?
I was only in the seventh grade and living in Florida, but one of my best friends actually worked in one of the surrounding buildings of the Twin Towers. His mom worked in the first building that was hit, with the Port Authority. He spent most of the morning trying to figure out where his mom and various friends were. He was incredibly lucky - he didn't lose anyone he knew, but he DID experience everything that happened, from walking up the subway stairs and seeing the first tower on fire to walking with his friends to safety. Turns out, his brother's method of transportation (his brother has downs syndrome) was unavailable, so his mom had to drive him that day and therefore was not in her office. Crazy. He posts his story every year on 9/11 on his LJ and it always makes me terribly sad.
I live in New York City now, the first 9/11 I've spent here. I didn't really understand how much of an impact the events of that day had on this city until I understood how New Yorkers live and work and just... are.

TQC, I'm looking at my credit card statement and I'm confused. Halp, plz?

Collapse )

Why am I negative $27, TQC? I don't see where the hell it's coming from. I JUST paid everything off, and haven't used it at all.. if it was there before I paid it off, wouldn't there have been $218.70 and then another $27 added onto the $218, making it $245? Or wouldn't that mean that I somehow ran up $227, AFTER my bill was paid, since my credit limit is $200 and I'm -$27? I tried to call the company but I ended up just getting automated information. I'm gonna try calling a different number of theirs, but I'm trying to figure out where it could've come from on my own.

Doesn't it drive you nuts when professors (or people in general, really) don't e-mail you back? Care to rave over this?

Is it safe to assume that since both exams are worth 200 points each, the 10 quizzes throughout the semester are worth 10 each and 100 total? He just put 100 down in the syllabus with no explanation..however, I would not be surprised if they are worth 1,000 total because this professor is a dumbass.

Eggy.

I was going to make scrambled eggs, but I cracked open the second and found this. (Along with the contents of what appeared to be a normal egg.) I tossed the offending egg along with the first that it contaminated. I had a veggie burger instead. It was unsatisfying.

Can anyone please recommend me upbeat, pop songs? I'm looking for songs like Can't Keep You Out Of My Head by Kylie Minogue. I would like either male or female singers, not necessarily in the same song. However, I would prefer not to be recommended Britney Spears, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, or Miley Cyrus.

What are some good names for an upbeat playlist containing upbeat pop songs?

Is anyone else irritated by how slow Livejournal is being?

I've been watching episodes of Red Dwarf during lunch at work, and I'm almost to the end of the series, so I want to find something else to watch. I like it because it's a nice show to take my mind off work, relax, and laugh at random idiotic funny stuff. So . . .

How can I grow out my bangs without looking retarded?

For years my hair has been long and straight, with short bangs. I want to try something different. I don’t know what to do with my bangs while they’re mid-nose length.

I wear glasses, so if I clip my bangs back with barrettes I look like a nerd. No wanna look like a nerd.

Bonus question: Why are they called bangs, and not booms, or kapows?

Yikes! Everything is too small!

Just a minute ago, I was foolishly letting my toddler sit on my lap while reading LJ. She hit some keys on the lower left hand side of the keyboard, and everything shrank!!

What the heck did she do, and how do I undo it?

My computer completely and totally died a few days ago, and when the guy at the Apple Genius bar typed in my serial number, he said it was still under warranty. I got super crazy excited (because I thought my warranty had expired), but then after a minute, he said, "Oh wait...wrong serial number. I put in an 'X' instead of a 'Z.' Well...crap. I just got your hopes up really high so...I'm going to have to fix it for free!" I couldn't believe it!

I just read some reports that 70% of the first responders to the twin towers are now ill, as well as a lot of the locals. It makes sense to me with all that ash and stuff, but I was wondering...For those of you who were either there, or live in NYC, do you have any respiratory issues from it?

song name?

Pardon the ambiguity...

I recently heard a tune with a long string of 'la la, la la, la la, ...' and I'm pretty sure it's a fairly recent tune (within a couple years? few?) but due to people talking I honestly have no other description available...

I was wondering if anyone can name it? Google has been of no help, it is not Kylie Minogue or ATB. (I will admit, Google's search suggestions do get fairly amusing)

Who are some authors that have surprised you by making something you normally don't like interesting?

Will you comment with the name and author of a book you've been interested in reading, and let other people tell you what they think of the book/author?

I'm trying to decide whether to attempt Gravity's Rainbow. Thoughts?

My children and I were all prescribed a medication by our doctor. My partner was going to go to the pharmacy to pick them up for us.

I called to ask if I needed to authorize him to pick them up somehow, and they said that he could just come pick them up. I told them that he didn't have the same last name as us or anything, and they said it didn't matter, he just had to sign for them and it was all good.

Is this normal? Can anyone just go pick up anyone else's prescriptions?

guys, i'm supposed to go to a party tonight. it's 2 hours away and tolls will be $6.30 total. there's a $3 if you want to drink their alcohol or you can byob. i've been friends with the host since middle school and haven't seen her since winter break. the girl i was supposed to go with sort of bailed because she has to drive her friend around (he lost his license because he had too many DUIs). i don't really know when she'll be done. the party starts at 7 and it's now 5:30, although i guess it's cool if i'm not quite on time.

should i wait for the girl to home and go with her? should i go now by myself? should i not go at all?

I am not particularly coherent right now, so plz let me know if I need to clarify.

I have a considerably large amount of money that I need to get from my school checking account with "Bank A" to my personal checking account with Bank of America. To do this, I will be writing myself a check. (Doing an online transfer is not an option, as Bank A charges me $50 to do this. FUCK YOU, BANK A.) In the past, whenever I've deposited checks from different banks of more than $100, the first $100 is available immediately and the rest of the amount is available when the check clears.

If I split up this amount of money into multiple checks, will I get multiple hundred dollar credits at once until the rest of the amount clears?
