If it's not a word, and one must truly use either "dumber" or "more stupid" in its stead, WHY?!

If it's not a word, and one must truly use either "dumber" or "more stupid" in its stead, WHY?!
i have the hardest time trusting anyone, even those closest to me. i'm trying to get better, but i just don't know how to fix it. :\
and its rusty-ish.
I it POSSIBLE to have a bicycle chain made out of plastic?
Where can I buy such a chain?
2. What kind of drama is going on in your life right now?
2) sausage or bacon?
3) scrambled or fried eggs?
4) homefries or hashbrowns?
5) coffee or orange juice?
6) if you had pancakes/waffles AND homefries/hashbrowns, would you still have toast?
7) go out to eat or make it at home?
So TQC, which school should I choose?
ETA: I forgot to mention, the conflict I'm having right now is if I back out of my UC school and go back to my old school, my parents would totally flip and disown me in the act of rage (haha). So my question should be: How can I convince my parents to let me go back?
If you'd been dating someone for four years, with some breaking up and getting back together in that time, and you suddenly found out they're a racist, and have really horrible views of pretty much anyone who isn't Caucasian, would you stay with them? Or would that only be a small part of who they are, and able to be overlooked?
What are your thoughts and opinions of giving people the right to die on their own terms?
Do you think you would want to end things if you were a quadriplegic?
"I think people will start saying more often to doctors and nursing staff, 'I now want to leave this world, can you please let me do that in the most painless way possible'."
But Right to Life Australia president Veronica Andrew said Rossiter should have received psychiatric care.
"It appears he was in a state of depression and wanted to end his own life," she said. "He should have been given mental health treatment for that.
"To be told that your life is not worth living is a depressing message for the courts to send and a backward step for Australia."
Are any of the above statements true to your beliefs?
When's the last time you called in to work/school/life because you were sick? Were you really ill, or did you just need a day off?
You're driving down the highway or along some winding, wooded road. In close distance a figure appears off to the side, laying lifelessly on the pavement. And, as you draw closer and closer, you say to yourself, "Awwwwww, how awful. That poor, poor..."
"Oh, it's a bag."
Would you confront your SO about some texts sent to girls, wanting to hang out, on a night you were at home and he was out?
There is this group of kids who live around the block from me. When I go running they yell comments like "hey skinny legs" and "run forest." Not making fun of my weight or anything but just saying something because they are dumb kids. Yesterday while driving home they BARELY got out of the street for me to pass. I mean I had to drive to the left and then the right swerving around them because they wouldn't go to the sides. I'm kind of being bullied by kids ten years younger than me.
What should I do? They all hang out at this house but I don't think they all live there. I don't want to just go out of my way to avoid them.

Severe Weather Alert
Per Campus authorities currently the university IS NOT CLOSED.
However, several locations are flooding and driving conditions are not safe. Please do not come to campus unless absolutley necessary. We will update with new information as we receive it.
So campus isn't closed, but off-campus students (which are the majority of the school's population) are urged to not come to campus unless it's "absolutley" (lol...) necessary. Based on this, would you assume that classes are/are not cancelled? And what do you think would be considered an "absolutely necessary" circumstance? Class???
(Note: I don't have any classes today anyway, but I do need to speak with a professor who told me to come in between 12:30 and 1:30 today [during his office hour]. I already emailed him telling him that I can't make it (the driveway of my apt complex is flooded), but I'm curious about classes and stuff.)
Maybe if they were awesome in every other way.
2)What do you think about people who know the exact amount of calories in a peach, or calculate how many cups of rice are in their stuffed peppers, so they can know how many points the stuffed peppers are?
3)What do young folks nowadays do that annoys you?
I'm in the process of writing questions for a quiz night, and am stuck on the Pop Culture round. Do you have any suggestions for questions?
ETA: I love you all.
For me it was a couple of months ago. I seem to get added in fits and bursts every six months or so. I would say that this suggests that my LJ becomes interesting every 6 months or so, but that would be over-valuing its interest factor I think ;).
So, the questions:
When you bought your car(s), did you take it to a mechanic?
Where did you find the mechanic(s)?
How much did you worry about this and how did things turn out?
Any other advice?
what do you do to make yourself feel better when you're having a less-than-attractive day?
Will you please post something to make me feel a bit better?
1. What are some things that you've seen recently that you thought you would never see?
2. What is one thing you would love to see but doubt you ever will?
A 180 question;
3. What non-English word or words do you slip routinely in your every day English conversation?
I have a tendency to slip in Yiddish words. Schmuck, Kosher, Mensch, they're all good.
i feel like there are sooo many eye and lip make up removers but barely any for the whole face! i can only find ONE kind (the loreal one) in a typical drugstore.
what should i have for dinner tonight?
What do you think of it? (cost, service, etc)
If you don't mind, how much do you pay?
How do you like your peanut butter & jelly sandwiches?
What's your favorite jam/jelly?
A friend of mine has just offered to set me up with a friend of his. I've never been on a blind date before and I'm fairly nervous at the prospect of trying to make conversation with a stranger, though I also think it could be an adventure.
Should I go? If I do end up going on the date, do you have any advice for helping it to go smoothly?
If you've never been on a blind date, would you go on one of someone set you up? What's your general opinion of blind dates?
What did you do about it, if anything?
How does one become a 'warmer' person?
I have a budget of $100 total and almost half of that has gone to making the cake (although I DID over-estimate - that DOES include the supplies to make the stand, cupcake cups, mix, frosting, frosting bags, Nutella to be swirled in to the batter, and candles).
When is your birthday?
What is your favorite kind of wine?
Epically boring business paper, it's ridiculous.
I have a three day weekend coming up, should I go to Wyoming with one of my friends, or drive back home for it?

( Collapse )
Which of these options would you prefer
What would be your next course of action?
Also, what do you think of group projects in school classes?
non-college grads - what would you write about if you had a to write a thesis? assume it could be on virtually any academic topic.
How about somebody else's sacred stuff?
Optional @11:54pm UTC ETA: How about if they're a crock pot of crack pots?
I ask because it looks like a building I've been in...in Munich...land of the...historically burdened?
So, you know how some cultures practice genital mutilation on females? If you don't, some cultures have a habit of removing the clitoris along with parts of the labia before sewing up the girlie bits. Sometimes they leave a small opening, other times they just sew it all the way up. Anyways.
Do you think we should intervene and try to get them to stop? Why or why not?
Do you wear those "sexy" Halloween costumes?
Why or why not?
Do guys actually find them attractive?
Should I risk taking out the keyboard (doesn't void warranty) and dousing it with water (pretty sure that voids warranty) again? Or should I revel in the bubble wrap tapping?
I'm not really going to school tomorrow. Convince me to do homework anyway?
What was your favorite thing about recess?
What was the last thing you felt guilty about?
what is in monicas secret closet that chandler is not allowed to see?!?!?!
Do you have it or know anyone that does?
This whole concept is mind-blowing to me.
(House and Heroes start at 9pm my time and both run until 11. How I met your mother starts at 9 and Big Bang Theory at 10:30.)
If you don't care about that, what is your favourite kind of tea?
Do you have any mental problems?
It's snack time. What's your snack of choice?
(It's a boy).
EDIT: Decided to name him Ludo.
do you think my prof will curve it? do you think he'll scold us for not studying well enough? how pitiful is this for the first test? : /
if you've taken any tests so far this semester, how did you do?
For me, lemon grass soup, red wine, ginger tea (fresh grated ginger soaked in boiling water with honey) and staying in bed with a book.
edit: I forgot to mention, grappa!
(I have to hand in at least five pages of my thesis tomorrow...not started yet)
How do you take your coffee?
When did you start drinking it?
anyone here know of any good poems or sonnets that talk about writing, or the sanctity of writing? i know shakespeare has a sonnet about it but i can't remember which one. i need inspiration.
Have you ever broken up with someone and continued dealing with them far longer than you should have? How'd that work for you?
would it be okay to wear all black?
should i paint my nails some neutral/bland color, or is it okay to have them a bright fun color? (i'll be painting my nails the night before, so chips/tip wear won't be a problem.)
should i wear heels or flats? my only heels are plain black but i have flats in a variety of colors.
I have to get tested for HIV this Saturday and yeah, I'm worried. I was worried when I flew a thirty-five year old Russian plane in to North Korea on their state airline (incidentally, said airline isn't allowed to fly in some places because of safety regulations) but I'm really worried now, about this test.
- tuna, avocadoes, nuts, tomatoes with olive oil. The list goes on! I'll usually do this for a day and then forget about it. :(
2. What do you think will become of Facebook? Will it take over the world and become even bigger and bigger?
ETA: Can you explain some details? What types of costumes, drinks, food, etc?
( Collapse )

My hoopty... my hoopty rolling, tail pipe dragging..
3)Do you ever make fun of other people's music?
Yes, I make fun of that carwash song from the cashwash movie from the 70s.
If so, I was wondering what happens if you have been a good student and then due to being really sick, not talking to the instructor about said illness and missing the deadline on a paper, would they kick you out?
If they do kick you out, would you be able to get back in and what would it cost?
How long are your showers?
What should I do? Any generic gift suggestions? (She loves to cook)
Do you have any really wonderful coworkers? Tell me about them!
What about AWFUL HORRIBLE EVIL COWORKERS? Tell me about them, too! :)
Those of you dressing up, whatcha gonna be?
Those of you who aren't, why don't you like fun?
For those of you with MacBooks, how much was yours? Was it worth it?
For those of you who have a different brand, what kind do you have? Do you love it? Tell me about it. Thanks :)
Have you ever had a sugar daddy/mama?
Have you ever been one?
I just got one and I'm trying to think of things I would like to get offline.
I mean, I don't care if she comes but I think its a bit rude how she just invited her along even though I am the one driving (and they never chip in for gas.)
I like both of them but when they are together they basically giggle at inside jokes and ignore me. I feel like all tomorrow I am going to be the chauffeur.
Am I over reacting and what should I do?
There are two girls in your school, they are best friends. They are always together. In the halls, at lunch, and outside of school. You very rarely see either of them with other people, though they are not anti-social.
Would you think it's weird that it's only ever the two of them? Would you wonder if they were more than friends? Or would you not think anything of it?
I haven't looked up any prices yet and google only brings up DIY stuff and I'd really rather not attempt that. Other than the screen the computer is OK, the only other problems are keys and the mouse pad being worn out and a key missing but I'm fine with it.
Did you have any childhood paranoia like that, or was I just crazy?
What are you reading right now, and how did you end up reading it? I'm reading "Kids Say The Darndest Things!" by Art Linkletter. I got it from an impromptu book exchange we set up at the deli I work at. It's funnier than I expected.
Have you ever had physical therapy? How did that go and what was it for?
Whats wrong with me?!
Does anyone know where I can buy really cheap red boots? (I'm being Sailor Moon for Halloween) I haven't checked the local thrift stores yet, and ebay canada has been no help. I don't want to pay over $30 for them if possible.
For those of you in school, how is school going? Any favourite classes?
For those of you not in school, how are things?
Was it an easy fix or did it set you back, either financially or time-wise?
Someone threw blue paint on my fiance's silver car. But it was water-soluble paint, and started to rain shortly after, so a loofah took off all the blue, thank goodness. I'm just shocked that it happened- the neighbor kids love him.
