so what happens to your kids? do you let them live by themselves in the house for a few years? do you make your much younger brother (15 years older than your kids) move in with his wife and baby? you also have an estranged daughter from a previous marriage, but you never talk to her, and don't really want her to have the house.
eta: this is about the sims, not real life.
Since Prince Charles couldn't make it, it should've been Prince William, as he's the eldest, but for some strange reason, it was Prince Harry.
Anyone know why? It's been bugging me for the last two days.
How did you go about 'snagging' this person? How did things work out in the end?
Suppose you met someone who was perfect for you in every sense. They were well balanced, employed but not work obsessed, well off financially--and they were totally head over heels for you, and would give you anything you could ever want or need if you ever asked it. They put up with all your faults and errors completely. The one thing they won't compromise on is how much they love your most hated attribute (this can be physical, mental, personality, etc.), and wouldn't be able to stand it if you changed it. Would you be able to stay in this relationship?
Have any of you followed through on it? Stories, please.
I totally have the hots for one of my professors, to the point where I have a bit of trouble focusing in class.
A little creative googling has led me to his blog. His personal, I hate dumb students, heres my halloween costume, I love this movie, blog. Tee hee!
My mom tries to carry on conversations through closed doors, or from across the house. My friend was taking a bath and my mom was just talking to her through the door for 10-15 minutes. She also has the tendency to go off on tangents and never let you get a word in when she's talking.
If I'm wearing something that my dad thinks is nice, he'll ask, "How long have you had that now?" "When did you get that, again?" as if he should be keeping track or something.
My sister walks on the tips of her toes.
I could go on, but now it's your turn!
I know there is a huge stigma against them, do you notice people treating you differently because of the hearing aid? (hiring for jobs-wise, social life wise)
Are you able to listen to your music with headphones? Did you have to buy special ones?
How much are hearing aids? I was looking at ones by Siemens but I was hearing that they are $2000 or something. Yikes!!!
And do you speak "differently" because of the hearing aids? Do you hear everything in a mechanical, metallic sort of way? Is there static?
Thank you! I was considering a cochlear implant but apparently you have to be deaf or near deaf for that. I have had ear surgery in the past, but I don't really know how to explain it; the doctor broke my ear drums and they "grew" back, and I was able to hear a lot better but I still cannot hear like a normal person.
When you view standard def, how is it? Is it annoying looking at a 4:3 picture on a 16:9 screen? Because it annoys me when I am forced to stretch or zoom the 16:9 HD to 4:3.
I have an HD tube 4:3 TV and my picture isn't that great. I guess the TV probably just sucks but I don't know if it's the signal or the TV so I wanna find out if it's even worth it to get a new TV without satellite TV.
if you do, what religion are you normally? what other bits do you believe in? for the purposes of my question, atheist/agnostic/etc can count as the religion.
Do you think there are more people who like you than people who don't like you?
Do you find most people have pretty neutral feelings towards you? As in, whether it be like or dislike, they don't make a big deal out of it either way? Or do people usually feel really strongly about you, either hating your guts or having nothing but good things to say about you?
And lastly, how much do you care about being liked by people?
I find people either love me or hate me, both to the extreme. People rarely think I'm just meh, okay. I think it's because I'm very outgoing and upfront and it can either rub people the wrong way or they love me for it. I don't care if I'm disliked because it's rarely for a good reason, so it's their issue, not mine.
If you don't agree, will you give me an example of a movie being better than the book?
I'm always at a loss with this.
Execute them all and call it a trifecta???
EDIT-O-MATIC: IF YOU ANSWERED NO. Since you're
How much do you weigh?
How much does http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm claim that you should weigh? (both 'Peoples Choice' and 'Medical Recommendation')
Does that recommendation seem in any way realistic to you?
- 245 lbs
- PCI: 219 lbs
- MR: 160-211 lbs
- Anywhere between 200 and 210 sounds about right...I'd be insanely boney if I tried to get down to that 160 lbs range, though.
If you don't have an SO, what would you like to have in common with them?
If you don't ever want an SO, favorite breakfast food?
What's your favorite poem of his?
I like "Church Going." He reminds me of Modest Mouse for some reason.
What sound do you make when you're taking a poo?
I tried looking around myself but kept coming across "vinatge" sites that were 70s ish, and then I found one that had previews including a horse and I freaked out and ran away.
Did you do honours? How was that for you?
What did you wish you'd known beforehand?
(Other than the immediately obvious serious implications of taking it too far..I'm talking like creating an issue where somebody feels dizzy throughout the day or internal bruising or ...something?)
Do you understand this fetish?

I'm playing Heroes of Might and Magic III right now with my roommate and it's just like middle school :3
I currently have a Blackberry (hate) and an iPod touch. I'm due for a new phone. My parents both just got Droids; my boyfriend has an iPhone. I am currently on my parents' plan, but I am a Mac user.
Get a Droid and stay on my parents' Verizon plan?
Or get an iPhone and join my boyfriend's more expensive AT&T plan but have a phone that I know syncs well with my computer?

What is the silliest/funniest Thanksgiving picture/comic you can find?
I've never done it before and in the very near future, I have to book 3 round trip flights for my boss.
How much time is "acceptable" for a layover? How much time should I allow between connecting flights? She'll fly out of our local airport into St. Louis, and then from St. Louis to her various destinations.
Why the hell do prices have to change so much? I looked up some flights this morning and when I went back to check some info on them, the prices were a hell of a lot higher. :(
How easy is it to get a professor to let you use an older book for a course?
I'm taking an Economics course next Spring, and the syllabus calls for the 8th edition, 2008. Well I found the 8th edition, 2007 online for $15 opposed to $160+ for the 2008 version.

With preserves? With sliced apples on the side? Something more savory?
Give me your ideas!
I don't think I'll be hearing from him by tomorrow though because he has always been really bad about getting back to students in a timely manner. Do you think I should try to go up to my school tomorrow anyway or do you think nobody will be there? It sucks because I am really low on gas and cash and I don't want to spend an hour traveling there tomorrow if I don't have to.
I need help with Christmas gifts! I know it's early, but whatever. My mom and dad are both unemployed as of recently and are in debt, and even though I'm a 20 year old college student, I want to do something that they will appreciate and that will help support them a little. I'm getting my dad a new cell phone for his birthday next month because he's been using it to contact employers and his barely ever works, so it's practical and a nice gift and it'll help him. Any ideas for Christmas?
Is there any new goal you've set for yourself recently? I'm going to try to stop eating meat again!
(ie you hate stealing, but you cheat on your boyfriend all the time)
Why do people (in mass quantities) feel they have the right to tell me what to do with MY body, regardless of how they think it might affect others?

Will you put up a text you received recently and explain the context?
what's your favorite dumb meme?

What do you guys think about lip synching? If you knew an artist was going to lip synch for a concert, would you still fork out the cash to go?
There's been a big uproar here about Miss Britney lip synching at her concerts (she's just started the Aussie leg of her Circus tour).

Say you're driving down the interstate in the dead of night. A quarter mile ahead of you, an armored truck suddenly shits a satchel full of nonsequential large bills, to the tune of half a million to a million dollars. You manage to roadkill the bag in your grille and it stays there all the way home. You weren't seen by anyone on the way. What do you do?
Would it be better to do a program that excites me in a place that doesn't, or should I do something less exciting in an exciting place?

Should I change my username?
What should I change it to?
While walking through the hospital one day (visiting a friend), an older man of some indistinct third world country approaches you and talks excitedly in a strange language. His translator tells you that his daughter needs a kidney and he would like to buy yours. You try and explain the process of donors and compatability and so forth, and the translator says "I know. We've tried to explain to him how it's done, but he refuses to listen or understand. He's immensely rich and buys everything he wants, even if he doesn't really know how to work it. Right now, he wants your kidney, and he's willing to pay you $1,000,000 for it. If you agree, the removal will be done in a very sterile environment with a team of doctors who specialize in organ removal. You will be in the best hands money can buy. However, if you agree, you must give up the kidney right this very minute or else he'll find some other person who will." Will you sign over your kidney ASAP for 1 million?
What made it so great?
I think I do a pretty good job, but the hardest thing is balancing making my lessons challenging with making them engaging for the students.
What do you wish your high school teachers (of any subject) had done/would do differently?
People always say that their best teachers "made it fun" or "made it interesting"... how did they do that?
TQC, make me a better teacher.
I have to read a dialogue to my class tomorrow, while speaking in *some* kind of accent.
What kind of accent should I do?
Any dialogue suggestions? (Can be from TV/plays)
I also eventually have to sing a song to music in front of my class.
Any suggestions for relatively short, somewhat funny songs?
Is this correct grammar?
Also, according to the manual, it's not due till 100k. I'm at 78k. The dealership dude said he's seen them go usually between 80-90, but 90 is pushing it. Was he just trying to get more money out of putting the fear in me? How long do you think I can hold off?
If the $4-450 is right, I can do it pretty soon, but the reason it was at the dealership is because the check engine light came on and said it needed a new camshaft sensor. My new mechanic (the one I said I trust above) put one in and a week later it failed again. But his was after market and a lot of forums say only MOPAR will really work in Chryslers, so I am at a loss. If the MOPAR one doesn't solve it, the dealer wants $400 to tear down the engine and look at the actual camshaft, which would push back the time I'd be able to do the timing.
I fucking hate car problems...
Pros (of the job) are there it's relatively easy, that I don't have to be there for that much time every day, and that the pay is good.
The cons are that I'm starting to get "full-time" projects (like right now I am doing most of the work of getting stuff together on this tenure case), it's incredibly tedious, it adds about the same amount of time that taking another class would, I really honestly don't _need_ the money since I almost never spend money, and I plan on taking 22 credits next semester so I don't know how I'll be able to balance of that and a life (not to mention that registering and trying to find time for a job between 9-4 is insanely difficult).
What would you do in my situation?
"Don't make me ______. You wouldn't like me when I'm _____". What word?
( Collapse )
Will you tell me about your most annoying coworker?
Oh yeah, he went there. lol But joking aside, I remember a time growing up when I looked back at the sexist stuff of the 60-70s and I guess I naively thought that it had gotten much better. These days I feel like it's gone five steps back. Stuff is becoming as shockingly sexist and accepted as it once was. I don't know if anyone else feels this way. And I'm not talking just of women. I'm pretty sure this kind of portrayal does plenty of harm to the image of males as well. Again, am I the only one that feels this way? How do you react to that video?
So now I need to meet some new people. I've been invited to a birthday party tonight by a friend of the birthday person.
I'm feeling a night in doing essays, but know I should be trying to meet more people.
Do I go or have a quiet night in?
Has anyone elses actions made you feel better about yourself recently?
This has made me feel good for sticking a difficult course out.

No, you don't get ticky. You don't deserve ticky for losing your license, you lazy slacker.
What mind-blowing revelations have you had lately?
Chop it all off and go back to short like I normally have OR keep it growing/just trim..?

What about in the living room?
inspired by this article....
my question is this...is it legal, or constitutional to condemn a person to death a second time if the first attempt isnt successful? is it the criminals fault that the execution didnt go as planned and should they have to sit through a second attempt because of this? im torn myself. his crime was heinous, yes, but do we believe in eye for and eye here? where does the line between just and cruel and unusual end and begin? does anyone deserve to see death twice? thoughts??? legal insight if you have any?
How do you find good rates on hotels?

Let's tell a story. I'll write a sentence or two, and you comment with a sentence or two, continuing the tale from where I left off. Maybe it'll be a dialogue. Then somebody else will comment and so forth.
"Wow," said Dolores, "that tasted much saltier than I expected. I don't think that was custard at all!"
"SIR! Put your hands in the air and take your hand out of the llama's cage or I will shoot!"

Suppose you got some money out of a cash machine, and noticed that your account wasn't debited.
also - the next withdrawal from that machine wasn't charged...
what do you do?
Me - I'd probably pinch a bit, and then tell the bank or machine owner
