Would you keep trying to talk to them? Ignore them too, but secretly hope they come around? Say fuck it and move on?

When was the last time you actually went shopping at the mall?
My grandma and I took my daughter to JC Penny's last Friday, but we didn't go into the main part of the mall.
Why are the Hindus upset about it? There was something on the radio this morning about some major Hindu group filing a complaint against James Cameron because it offends them or something. I don't really know the details.
Okay, they just played the blurb again, and it said something about "avatar" being the principle of reincarnation in Hinduism. They are wanting a disclaimer put at the beginning and the end of the movie saying that it has nothing to do with Hiduism or reincarnation. Sounds like they only bring it up because it's slated to be a major release in India.
What are you wearing?
What would you rather be wearing?
Are you sick?
Do you have any particularly awesome piercings?
Edit: Got it. Thanks again!!
We are soon going to be hiring a person to replace my old boss. This person will take on the remaining duties of my old boss not passed along to me, plus starting additional projects not yet tackled by other colleagues.
I am going to be a part of the interview and selection process. I've never interviewed anyone to be my boss before. I know that my questions during the interviews should focus more on the candidates management style and less on their qualifications. I also know that I do not want to appear to be solely focusing on finding the best fit for me, but on the best fit for our team, which includes me as this person's employee.
Anyone ever interviewed their potential boss before? Or have some sample questions I can ask?
Isn't the hero who protects people from hurting themselves the person who says "I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend"?
Who needs another martyr?

i saw 'the swell season' last night and it was so incredible i don't think anything will ever top it <3
How do I make that happen again?
Will you comment back with ANYTHING to take my mind off this feeling of panic? Your life story, a random photo, your life problems, anything?
You are headed to an event and you are slightly behind schedule, but its nothing terribly important.
You take the toll road as it exits closest to this event.
At the exit, you pull up to the lane with a bill changer, since all you have is a $5.00 bill to pay the $0.50 toll.
The machine proceeds to eat your $5.00 and give you no change. You have no more cash.
You back up and change lanes to the tenant booth and politely explain what happened. He tells you he can't open the bill changer and that the only way I can get my money back is by pulling off to the side of the road and waiting (for who knows how long) for somebody to be "called in" (at 9pm on a Wednesday?!) to open the machine. He will not refund your $5.00. You ask if he will let you through the toll and he says "50 cents". There is not a gate across the lanes, only a red light.
What do you do?
In what ways other than that one and the common one is pot a gateway drug?
S. N. Aps

How do you act post-orgasm? Is it similar to how you act drunk?
I'm realizing just how terrible I am at it. :-/
Will you give me some advise on how to write a kick ass resume?
I've never bothered taking advantage of those sales or anything, but this year my disposable income is making me do silly things.

Pros: I save what little gas I have left, I can catch up on homework, and I can finish laundry/cleaning.
Cons: It's the end of the semester, and I'd be missing class, and then I have to justify it to my super nosy parents.
Pros of asking for xmas is you won't have to pay as much (you will still have to pay for part of it) Cons are you have to wait
Pro of it now is you can have it now but cons is you have to spend pretty much all of your savings.

I like Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and the Stephanie Plum books. Generally popular stuff.
Is there a movie adaptation of a book that you prefer to the actual book?
The Shawshank Redemption was better than the short story (from Different Seasons). The movie was almost identical to the original story except for two major plot differences.

I need to take two classes next semester (there are no other semesters, I'm fucking DONE in May), but they conflict with each other. My options are A: Take the 300 level course online or B: have one class @ noon on Monday & Thursday, thus screwing up my availability for my mandatory internship.
What would you do, TQC?
Considering the conditions of them, how much would you ask for Pair A? Pair B?
If I call the boutique and find out I can get replacement backs for Pair B, would that affect the value?
For those of you who do the whole designer thing: does it piss you off when you see fakes referred to as "Brand replica", "Brand-inspired" and "in the style of Brand"?
Yes, so freakin' much.
For those of you who dgaf: what is the last thing you spent any money on?
Is it reasonable to do $60/$40 or $70/$30 since I make way less than my sister?
Did I actually just get banned for that post in which I didn't actually break rule #8? Without so much as a warning?
Well, ban this one too, I guess. Is this a flounce post? Shit.
(It wasn't just a link - I actually wanted to know what people think of those requests that are very common, and it definitely was not self-promoting.)
(This is my hometown featured across the country and around the world, by the way. G'head, have a laugh.)
'Cause I just did it with "Tyler Perry's House of Payne", and man oh man is it terrible. I've done it with some good shows too though.
Does yours not have any navigation (play, pause, etc) buttons? WTF?
Or should I just go read a book?
I've had a sore throat all day (but not one that affects my speaking voice) and at rehearsal i started feeling downright weary. I could barely stand up. What kind of malady do I have? Is it Swine Flu? If not, what is it? Srs/non srs welcome.
What to do about school tomorrow? Should I go? I've got the SATs on Saturday morning. Should I just stay home and rest or tough it out?
How would you feel if a 19 year-old friend of yours started dating a 30 year-old?
Maybe pandas. They are surprisingly interesting creatures.
2. Have you had any strange dreams lately?
I had a dream of having sex with depressed Iggy Pop. :(
How long after a job interview would you expect to hear back from someone?
I had an interview a little over a week ago and I haven't heard back and I'm assuming I didn't get that one because they wanted several people for last friday from what they said during the manditory testing session, and they never called back after the interview.
Than I had an interview this past sunday morning (for a retail position) and they said they would call either way yet haven't and they wanted to start training this sunday.
I've got aninterview tomorrow at another retail place, my third one in a week and a half after months of not hearing from places and I'm nervous.
ETA: Mine - dengue fever about two years ago now, though a comparatively mild case (no bleeding out my eyes, yay!). Spent a week in bed, wishing for death, unable to stand up, crying just from the pain, daily blood tests for about five days straight, to the point where they were running out of veins to prod at, oral rehydration salts, complete loss of appetite to the tune of about ten or twelve pounds lost within two weeks, insane fever delerium and afterwards my aunt told me she was this >< close to having me admitted to the hospital for intravenous fluids.
I was really sick as an infant (preemie, surgeries, lung collapse, blah,) but I don't really think of it, as I don't remember experiencing any of it. Not that it's a big deal.
what is your current facebook status?
If you don't care, what are your plans for the weekend?
have you ever snuck out of your house? how did you go about it? why did you sneak out?
did you get caught?
tell me all about it.
are you a risk taker?
Also, are there any sites that will tell me what rocks form from different sediments?
Do you like physical geography? Because I hate it at this point.
What percent of people do you think are in relationships because they don't want to be alone or are afraid nobody else will want them?
Have you done this?
Or you know, if you want to tell me a fun story that works too. Like...... what's your favourite memory?
Or do you go have it done professionally?
If you do it yourself, what is your favorite brand of dye to use?
Do you leave it on for the recommended time?
I do it myself at home. The one time I had it done professionally, my stylist harped at me for saying I dye my hair (she said something along the lines of honey, you're a professional woman, you don't dye your hair, you color it....o_O)
I don't have a brand preference. I get whatever is one sale.
I always leave it on for longer because it never seems to take all the way if I don't.
sorry in advance if this is slightly lengthy...
so my job has been doing some shady things and my stepdad (who also worked there before) and i have decided it needs to be put to light.
several months ago they randomly started to fire people for things that were on people's backgrounds when they were hired. these people never lied about any felonies or convictions and never tried to hide them. most of the offenses were years and years old. at the most about 13 years old. there was no warning and these people were left to wonder why were they hired in the first place and allowed to work for years before any kind of problem arose. there was mass confusion and fear and it created a pretty uncomfortable working enviroment for anyone who had any kind of background. alot of people were left wondering when the hammer was going to fall for them. and then it just stopped. and not everyone who had a criminal background was fired. when the higher ups tried to "address" the issue no questions were ever really answered and we all were left wondering. "well what was all that for?"
and its not like these people had issues with violence or anything like that. most of it was things like possession, theft, traffic issues. and alot of the people who are still there had the same exact offenses as those who were fired.
and just recently they decided to take paid time off from part time workers, which i think is really unfair. they now get and alloted amount of unpaid hours a year while full time employees continue to get their paid time off.
there are other examples, but ive used so much space already...
how would you address this? do you know of any professional groups of any kind that could shed some light on the situation or assist, or have a site? i still work there, but dont plan on being there for too much longer. and though these things dont affect me personally i think it needs to be exposed or at least addressed.
**My SO just got out of the shower and is smacking his stomach with his hands. I can hear it two rooms over. LOL
2. Ever meet a shrink who didn't need one?
3. Why are you unhappy with your nipples?

I'm looking for an awesome bed frame but I can't seem to find anything I like. I was hoping I could get some inspiration from you guys/gals.
What are your favorite catalogs?
What drink would you have? What drink do you think they would have?
I want to help the world and make a difference, but how do you deal with realizing that in the end, nothing means anything and you will just disappear?
...or is that maybe not the case?
If so, who would you nominate?
How much does it bug you when someone asks for an honest opinion but then gets mad when you give it to them?
