You're in the desert. You have a broken foot/ankle/leg. The nearest town is 50 miles away and you have a good idea in what direction to travel. The only supplies you have on you are a knife, your clothes (think tshirt, jeans, socks, boots, etc, nothing elaborate), a 1/2-full canteen, and hunting rifle with one bullet left. What do you do?

What was the last thing that frustrated you out of your mind?


I wanted to give my mom a Wii-ware game for Christmas and I know that you can gift a game from one system to another. So I am staying up late even though I am tired to try to send her this game. But you have to be friends first, and you're not friends until both users have registered the other. So I've got both Wiis on and registered them on each other and now hers has mine as a friend but mine still doesn't have hers as a friend. So I can't send her the game. And I don't know why it would add one but not the other. I am so frustrated I want to cry.
Do you know why my Wii would do this to me?

EDIT: It works now for no apparent reason. Why are electronics so weird?

i'm taking part in a competition to design a welfare diary cover for the student population. the welfare diary's an organiser that allows one to well, organise their school/daily work and also provides information about the school/its activities/gives emergency number etc.

what do you think i should put on the cover? i can't think of much, since the diary's gonna be distributed to students from all faculties, hence it feels like i should design for all faculties.. give me some suggestions? :)

TQC, this afternoon (4 pm) at the dog park, a woman was pulled down by her dog, and got a big gash on her head (right temple) from the gate latch. It was probably 1.5" long, 1/3" wide at the middle, and at least 1/2-2/3" deep (you could see inside her head. it was disgusting). I called 911, against her will, and me and some other people stayed with her and helped her clean up all the blood. She was adamant about not going to the emergency room. She kept saying she didn't have the time and it was too expensive. The EMTs told her she needed to go, but they couldn't force her. They told her she had an 8 hour window to get stitched up before it started healing or something, idk. She said she was going to call her doctor's office to see if they do stitches. She got the dog and drove home.

Do you think she made it home okay? Did she go somewhere and get stitches? How does a gash like that heal up on it's own, if she decided not to get stitches? D:

Somebody wants me to make them a mix CD of the Black Eyed Peas for Christmas (because they know I download music and they don't want to). I honestly don't listen to the Black Eyed Peas so I don't really know what to put on it. I downloaded their albums and put around 11 of the most popular songs on iTunes that didn't make me go "wtf is this," but I need a few more. Suggestions?

I was at the physiotheraptist the other day. I have been referred due to an ongoing issue with my ankle and this was my first examination with this physio. He said that I had "well developed calves".

Is this a polite way of saying my calves are fat? Because I do lean towards being big boned.... And they are rather large.

I took my last final for fall semester a week ago today. My final grades aren't posted yet. At what point should I panic?

I took three classes over the summer and completely overloaded myself, so I took advantage of one professor's really lax deadline policy. I turned in all of my work in November and sent her an email to let her know. A week ago yesterday, I sent her another email saying that although I can see online that the assignments have been submitted-by-me-but-not-yet-read-by-her, my final grade for the class is now showing up as an F (D:). She said she could see that they were submitted and that she'd take care of it. The final grade hasn't changed yet. At what point should I panic? (D: D:)

inspired by the investing post. i've been tossing this idea around for a while but i'm not sure if i should do it.

currently i only have grants and scholarships to pay for school. i have enough that those alone are able to pay for my tuition and everything, and i still have enough leftover to pay for living expenses without having to work. i live with my parents so i don't have to worry about rent or food, but i do pay for my car, phone, etc. however i can't really afford anything outside of necessities. if my car was to break down i would be seriously screwed.

i was thinking of taking out a small student loan, maybe like $4k spread out across 2 years. so that i would have a little bit of extra money and also so that i can take summer classes. grants won't pay for summer courses and i can't afford to pay out of pocket. an obvious solution to this problem would be to go back to work, but i'm doing a lot better in school (straight a's vs. mostly b's with a couple of a's) now that i'm unemployed, and i would rather be able to focus on research opportunities. i feel like taking out a loan just to have money is a really stupid idea, but at the same time i'm planning on going to medical school which is super expensive no matter where you go and i'll be in a TON of debt at the end of it (like, $100k or more). what's another $4k on top of that?

so tqc, is this a really stupid idea or should i go through with it?

TQC, the cd drive in my laptop isn't working right. I put a dvd in 15 minutes ago and it isn't recognizing it. It isn't just this particular dvd though, I've tried others and nothing. Up until today, it's taken some time, but the computer has always recognized it.

WTF is wrong? Should I just suck it up and call Toshiba on Monday and send it in for another warranty repair?

As if this isn't enough, last night my washing machine decided the water shouldn't shut off when it is supposed to. By the time we realized what happened, my laundry room, hallway, and kitchen were flooded.

Since bad things always seem to happen to me in threes, what's the next thing that is going to break/go wrong?

When I got in, he flipped his gourd and was jumping up and down and like waving his arms and doing the goddamn hula and then he peed on my iPod a little (it still works).

Now he is asleep and grunting like a pro. My weiner dog who normally hates everything was SNUGGLING with him this morning. It is a doggie bromance.

I have a question for some hardcore Lord of the Rings nerds. I'm rereading the books and as as I'm reading them I'm getting the impression that when they say 'Nazgul' they are referring to the actual flying beasts that the Ringwraiths are riding on, not the wraiths themselves. But this confuses me because in the first film Aragorn gives his speech in Bree where he flat out says "They are the Nazul, Ringwraiths, neither living nor dead..." and it seems like a pretty major mistake for the movie to make.

Can anyone clear this up for me?

In January, I will likely get a large refund from my student loans. Instead of spending it all as I did last time (because I had no job and it went to pay living expenses), I want to invest some of my money (possibly in a money market account or a monthly dividend certificate and have it grow so I can have it in case of emergency. I do plan to talk to my credit union if you're wondering but I wanted to know what you guys think. What's a good way of investing my money? Can you tell me about your investing experiences?

Got a hypothetical situation for you.  In the words of the immortal Chuck Klosterman:

'You have a brain tumor. Though there is no discomfort at the moment, this tumor would unquestionably kill you in six months. However, your life can (and will) be saved by an operation; the only downside is that there will be a brutal incision in your frontal lobe. After the surgery, you will be significantly less intelligent. You will still be a fully functioning adult, but you will be less logical, you will have a terrible memory, and you will have little ability to understand complex concepts or difficult ideas.

So I was just on the phone talking to my boyfriend about our hanging out/gift exchange tonight. We have only been dating since October and have not yet had a gift giving occasion come up. During this conversation he said "Now you'll be able to see how I give gifts." I tried to probe for an explanation of this statement but he kept quiet just saying "You'll see!". So TQC what does he mean?!

Serious and non serious answers eagerly awaited!!!

In New Zealand, women are greatly outperforming men in regards to University participation. AFAIK this is a fairly common trend elsewhere? Anyway, there's a lot of blame on the 'feminizing' of education disadvantaging males, etc.

I do think male success in tertiary education is something that needs to be discussed. However, one rant by a local shit-stirring politician about this also mentioned how University degrees were becoming 'too common' these days, and I started to wonder;

Does anyone know if male success in education actually gone down? I was still in high-school when they passed a law here stating that children must be enrolled in school or another sort of approved training until they're at least sixteen. Completing highschool has really only quite recently been something that most everyone does, or that most girls do. It seems that educational success in general has never been spectacular among men, and it's possible that it's just that this has become a glaring contrast now that women are there are doing well at it. This would also account for the increase in University graduates.

I'm really curious about this but I have no idea where I'd actually find it out.

I'm not excited about Christmas at all this year. I'm very grinchy this year. I want to try to cheer myself up by baking some cookies, but we don't have any ~fancy~ ingredients and I'm too broke to buy them.

We have the basic things like flour, sugar, eggs, milk, salt, and tons of spices. We MAY have other things, but I don't know what to look for, so I don't know.

What kind of cookies can I bake with a really simple recipe that requires mostly basic ingredients?
