Movies with children and evil

Need names movies that feature children facing evil. Movies can be horror, fantasy, drama, whatever.

Not children who ARE evil ... unless a large part of the plot comes from those evil children interacting with nice, normal, happy children, thus creating children who face evil (in the form of other children).

Loose definitions of children and evil, so as to get the most possibilities ... possible.

Any suggestions?

My fiance and son are gone for 11 days. This is the first night at home where I've had to sleep alone in over two years.

I've decided for my 21st birthday I want to go out to a fun restaurant and hang out with my friends. I'm teeter-tottering on going to a drag restaurant, but I'm not really warm on the whole idea. I also want to stay away from places like Mars 2112 and Jekyll and Hyde's. Do you know of any restaurants in NYC that are fun and have good food? Maybe someplace with bellydancers?

What's the meanest or funniest thing a sibling has ever done to you?

My brother held the phone up so high that I couldn't reach it when it was an important call from a prospective employer and shouted, "It's a boy!" repeatedly.  I still got the job, but I have no idea why...

Ok, so imagine your work requires you to deal with people and the exchange of money for goods. Imagine that a girl you have to deal with picks at a sore on her mouth and then gives you money using the same hand.
How do you react?

PS: Yes this really happened to me tonight. Yes I was horrified.

There's a big stupid zit on my nose. It's extremely annoying, since it's red and sore but has not yet "emerged" to the point where it can be squeezed, popped or prodded.

How should I attack it?

Seat belt question

So you're piled up in a van, going 60km/h (which is the speed limit) minding your own business when all of a sudden a BMW comes crashing into you. The BMW was going 200km/h. Three of the people in the van are now dead, having been ejected from the van.

Were they wearing seat belts?

And why would the papers not report this, if the people were to be wearing seat belts, they probably would have lived, right? Or no?

(btw, I don't drive, but I assume they'd be dead either way, there's just a larger chance of surviving if you're buckled up I think)

Paranormal Activity ending

I just watched a megaupload video version of Paranormal Activity, where the ending is different than the theater version.

Anyone know where I can find the theatrical ending that ISN'T a shitty cell phone video where I can't see what's going on?

EDIT:  lol at everyone saying, "See it in the theater".  Considering I've already seen it, just a different ending, I'm not paying 10 bucks to see the last 10 minutes of a movie I've already watched.  I just wanna see the different endings.
And to everyone who wants to see the ending NOT in theaters(Edit, briteflite reminded me of the no-sharing.  THANKS BB! <3)

Is it foolish to apply for a job you KNOW you can do wonderfully, but don't have the technical qualifications for?

The job I want doesn't specify any degrees, but it sounds like a really fast-paced job with a LOT of responsibilities, and sounds suited to a much older person with a long history of youth work.

Should I just write the best cover letter ever and apply anyway? Or will I be laughed at and shamed til my head explodes? Ugh

OK that Q was pretty much just me venting and obsessing, so a real Q.

Do you know anyone that grew up with corporal punishment as a no-big-deal fact of life? (In school or at home.) Do you think they've suffered from the "abuse," or do you think having the punishment be in a different context as modern Western standards (i.e., no social stigma surrounding it; it's considered "OK") led to damage being minimal?

TQC, I am appalled.

I decided to buy several types of Jello to make layered Jello. My boyfriend didn't know you could do that. I've never known anything but layered Jello so I asked some friends and none of them have had it either.

Did you or do you ever make Jello?
Do you just make it one flavor at a time, or do you layer it?
Have you ever had it layered?

What do you have saved and where?

I have a stub from a Blue Rodeo concert my dad and I went to, a movie ticket from when my first bf and I saw AvP:R, and the movie ticket from when my last ex and I saw Inglorious Basterds for the first time. Somewhere I have a stub from a Gogol Bordello concert but IDK where it is :(

I keep them all in a bentwood cedar box I bought in Vancouver.

I'm considering quitting my job today when I go down to the office for some mandatory training.
I've only been working at this job since Sept 15th. So not long at all.

I absolutely hate this job. I don't like the clients and the shifts are killing me with having such a young baby. My shifts are 16, 20, or 24 hours at a time and it's just too much. I hate confrontation at work though. I don't even know where to start. I feel like I need to justify myself and it's awkward.

When is the last time you quit a job? 
How long were you there?

TQC, I just found out some ~okay~ tickets I got for a concert actually are meet & greets! I want to look cute but I'm having a hard time deciding how to do my hair---do I just straighten it to hell and back, use a bumpit to do a bouffant with a wide headband, or do I pull it up with my bangs hanging down? IDK :( HELP :(

If you don't know/care, which do you prefer: the Tim Burton version of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory or the old school Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory?
Old school, all the way.

1. Would you rather go to school for Early Childhood Education or Cosmetology?

2. Would living in an apartment with your SO plus another couple be a good idea? What if you didn't know the other couple very well?

3. I've been working in a movie theater for about 2 months now. When I first started, I was just doing concession. Every time I did it, though, my inventory was always way off - around $30-$50. I even got a heads-up about it from the concession manager. So not wanting to get fired or anything, I explained myself to the HR manager. I told her how my inventory was always off but my till was always perfect so she moved me to box. Since then I haven't had a single concession shift until this week.

Knowing that my inventory will probably be off, should I try to switch shifts with someone?
Or should I just suck it up and do it anyway?

So my coworkers husband just called and said he was moving out of the house right now, as he needs time to think about what he wants, etc.etc. They've been married for over 25 years.

She doesn't want to leave work, or take some time to call anyone - so she's just crying here at work.

We're just letting her be right now...

Do you ever think about the things humans do and think 'it's odd we all do that'?

I do it all the time. Like wearing clothes, grocery shopping, driving, anything really. I just think, why sometimes. I mean like living eeking out an existance for some, barely making ends meet and still being able to go on. Being super rich and still getting pleasure out of life, even when you already have everything.

Or sometimes I think in 100 years people our age will be thinking what we think about people from 1910.

I mean does your mind ever run around like this? I hate it sometimes.

so hey, there's this outrageously gorgeous necklace that i'm in love withCollapse )the necklace pictured is almost $400 so i'm trying to find styles like it, but its IMPOSSIBLE to search for since its made of so many materials.  Is there a name for this type of necklace? I want one so bad :(

Going out for steak tonight

Which shall I order?

Sirloin 250g for £15.95
Rib eye steak 250g for £15.95
T-bone steak 450g for £21.95

I've never had rib eye or t-bone. If you think i should get one of those, what makes them better than sirloin?

In a perfect world I'd order the Kobe beef, but that one is £40!!! The price makes me curious!

Okay this might be a stretch. I remember a long time ago seeing a poster that was a bunch of colored squares in a special arrangement. It has something to do with space travel, or something about what they project into space.

Any ideas..?

And the dwelling continues.

I'll never understand why my mom passed away so young. She was the best. I'm quite confused though. My mom's side of the family has made no effort to ask if me and my sister and dad are okay. The day she passed my mom's side of the family left back to Florida and never called and asked if we were ok.

They left without asking if we were going to make it? They knew we had financial problems and never called to check on us whatsoever. It confuses the hell out of me! What did we do? We couldn't help our mom died. We didn't kill her. Cancer took over. We loved our mom. She would be so upset if she knew her family was doing us like this.

They've all strayed away and we don't know why. It's just hitting me now...hard. How can your "family" not call and for that matter not even be there?!

2. Last night I left my computer on so my iPod could charge, and when logged back in this morning, everything was teeny tiny. I just kinda ignored it and turned my computer off, then went to school. Seven hours later, I turned my computer was still all teeny tiny. What's goin' on??

Okay, so, long story short is I fucked up my credit when I first got a credit card. Never got into debt, just for about, oh, six months out of the first year I had it I made late payments of 30+ days. ANYWAYS, I'm fantastic at payments now that I get it, and keep an incredibly low balance and all that. But all those late payments are going to stay on there for seven whole years! Any way I can drastically increase that score? Can't get a new car, so car payments are out of the question. Students loans are no good either. Would doing well with another credit card help?

I actually don't even need these classes at my previous school so I'm not concerned with my record here and I'm doing poorly anyway.

I e-mailed my advisor and told her I wanted to drop my classes and I'd be withdrawing next term and she told me that I couldn't drop them without extenuating, documented circumstances that were approved by the dean and that she wants to meet with me.

Should I just be honest with her? If she doesn't let me drop I'll probably just fail everything instead because idgaf. And why the hell can't I drop classes that I paid for anyway?

Do you want kids?

If not, and you found out you were pregnant, what would you do?

Do you generally like kids?

What inspired these questions, if your interested (its stressing me out a bit). Just skip if you're not:

My best friend thinks there is pretty much no good reason, ever, under any circumstances, to get an abortion. I haven't told her yet that my aversion to having kids is much, much stronger than my aversion to abortion. If I'm honest with myself, if I got pregnant, I'd have an abortion in a heartbeat--I mean, I would hate being in that situation, but I know I would do it.. She knows I'm pro-choice but I've let her assume I wouldn't get an abortion myself. She has two kids (and wants more!) and every time it comes up, its almost like she takes my being pro-choice personally! Like its a dig at her boys--which isn't the case at all, of course. I like those guys :) I can't imagine what she'd say if I told her the truth, so I'm just quiet about it. I think she'd think I was a horrible, selfish person.

I like kids, I just don't want them for myself.
