I was really interested in Lojban when I first discovered it, but I lost interest when I saw the forums for people wanting to translate literature and poetry into Lojban. The whole point of the language is that it has no subtleties and that each word has only one definition and one definition only (the idea is that you could use it to communicate with computers), so anything that involved plays on words would be meaningless in Lojban.
What do you think about fans learning Klingon or Elvish?
Do you think the language of the Na-vi will flourish and grow with Avatar fans, or will it die out as soon as the hype for the movie fades?
Who wants to learn Na-vi with me? :D
Do you have an OkCupid/Eharmony/match.com/etc profile? Have you met anyone interesting there?
Am I right to be pissed off?
Do you still get crusties?
If you don't have piercings, where do you usually buy your clothes?
Specifically, if you have had acne, how bad was it? How did you get rid of it? What helped? What made it worse?

What's a stupid thread you've seen lately? Link?
The shorts the lass is wearing in this photo... Does it have a specific name?? Im looking for shorts like that online to buy.. and well, i cant find it.
How much sleep do you need to feel your best? I personally need between 9 and 10 hours to be in a really good mood, but I always feel so lazy if I sleep that much.
I always talked to my pets like they were people. At least, I was sensitive enough about them that I would have felt bad if I made what would be rude remarks if said to other people. It's a weird thing I had, I guess I wanted to feel like they could trust me in any way, which meant being polite & loving when talking to them.

What celebrity's death has impacted you the most?
So, I have too much music on my computer (a black Macbook) than I should. I currently have about 6 KB free. So I got an external harddrive and have been moving music to that.
My issue- I put the files onto the harddrive, delete them on my computer, and that works fine. But then I need them in iTunes so inevitably they just end up on my computer again.
WTF am I doing wrong?
Bonus: What is Time Machine and how can I a. use it? b. get it to fuck off?
i was born in 88... so this was probably early-mid 90's... i'm guessing they're too unsafe now or whatever because they sparked, but if they're not do you know what they might be called? or maybe where i could find some to buy?
i remember how AWESOME i thought they were and i want to get some for my nephews if i can find them somewhere.
what was your favorite give-away kids meal toy?
is it just me, or have they gone down the shitter in recent years? mcdonalds doesn't even give away halloween buckets anymore.
We recently found out our great great great grandfather was adopted by the people whose last name we all have. Several members of the family have a family crest hanging in their homes of this last name that really isn't ours. Kind of a surprise. And then there was the Salem Witchcraft Trials involvement....
Have you ever bought/used pheromones?
(we called the vet, and we're waiting for a call back)
I love the show "ER". I watch the reruns every day, even though I've seen all 15 seasons 23738290 or so times.
What's your favorite re-run series?
Posted via LiveJournal.app.
So far, my birthday kind of sucks.
Will you make it better by posting photos of cupcakes, cakes and other baked goods?
cough, complain at children.
2)What are you reading now?
The tough guide to fantasy land
3)Do you like A Series of Unfortunate Events?
What should I get?
Where did you last get fast food from?
I am home alone and the wind is going CRAZY right now.
American here. I love the GINORMOUS variety of cuisine here but hate the fact that corprotations hold the majority of power here, IMHO.
I'm in Dubai!
Its friggen HOT and my ears are ringing.
What should I do first?
ETA: I meant clothes. =)
Post from mobile portal m.livejournal.com
Mine's a coconut carved into a monkey head.
What was your favorite thing about it?
A good friend of mine is gifting me her tree of peaches as she cannot use any/many of them. This means I have at least 6 20L (5 Gallon) buckets of peaches. As such I'm making peach chutney, bottling/preserving peaches.
My question is though, does anyone know of any good resources in which to give a guide on making peach liquer(or on failing that possibly peach wine)? So far the internet has just provided me with how to make fruit-infused liqueurs, something which I'm well aware of and that doesn't really require a lot of fruit (which I will get).
I already have a still and fermentation barrel. Please note that what I'm doing is not illegal in my country (NZ) so I'm sorry if I have offended anyone whose country/countries it is illegal in.
I ask because I just got two days off from school (and work, because I work on campus) due to snow. There's supposed to be 4-5 feet by the time it stops. O___O

What are kids learning today that is different from what you were taught? Anything bug you?
This pluto thing kills me.
I have my step sister's wedding on Saturday night, and I'll be wearing a cornflower blue dress, black shoes and silver jewellery. I'm fair skinned (though slightly ruddy) with dark blonde hair.
I thought a dark blue would be good, but now I'm having second thoughts. Help me, TQC!
( Collapse )
I know I wouldn't mind getting candy as a gift, but in your opinion, if I wrap and display color coordinated candy as a wedding favor... is that a horrible and tacky favor to do?
2. Shouldn't 57 Democratic votes in the Senate be enough?
3. Where's my cow?
For example my hot water heater only allows us to take 10 minutes showers before it turns cold, and my fridge freezes anything within 3 inches of the back wall. This morning I had to take the milk jug, shake it vigorously to break up the chunks of frozen milk and pour it into a bowl and microwave it. Just so you know, cereal blows with lukewarm milk.
Referring to school subjects, are you an english/history person (or would it be english/art?) or a math/science person?
Did you do it? Why or why not?
When working at a convenience store the summer after my freshman year of college, a high school classmate came in with a fake ID wanting me to let him buy beer.
No, I didn't let him do it, mostly because my boss was in the office 10 feet away.</a>
Should I convince my daughter to let me put it up for display, or let her open it up to play with?
Edit: this is a bad picture, but this is the doll.
( Collapse )
And I just noticed, the doll is apparently porcelain.
Who is your carrier?
edit: okay you wallflowers, maybe you can INVENT a dance move for me
I have a pair of boot cut grey pants that got a ton of stains on them from when I was working on a boat and oil/grease stuff was all over the place. I love the pants too much to throw them out and I've tried stain removers, none of them worked. So,
What color should I dye my pants?
Note: Whatever color it is, it'll be a darker shade. And note that I have orange hair? Might effect your choice. Idunno.
What does the rooster say?
One university I would like to transfer to is upwards of $30,000 a year. A part of me says, eff it, if you can get into a school as prestigious as this, taking out loans would be worth it. I know there's always scholarships and work study programs but this is still a lot of money. What would you do?
ETA: I am going for an engineering degree so prestige can definitely make a difference when looking for a job.
With funny or sweet videos or macros or whatever? Between my class being canceled (which is more of a headache then it sounds, trust me), the weather, and the two random guys who came up to me to either lie/sweet talk me into buying shit OR to laugh in my face at my misfortune, I'm in need of a cheer up.
I'm almost 30.
I was a medical transcriptionist for about seven years.
I work as a cashier at a retail store that is not Wal-Mart, and have for over a year.
I like to write.
I'm interested in photography.
I can sing and act and play acoustic guitar.
I'm curious about and interested in just about anything and everything.
I don't want to apply/interview for another job ever again.
I want to be my own boss/have freedom to make my own decisions.
I love to travel.
I don't have much money.
I'm a fairly quick study when a subject interests me.
I work well on my own.
I'm warm, friendly, and people like me, but I have a shy streak.
I live in Iowa.
What should I go back to school for? Give me your advice, both serious and non. Have you ever made a drastic career change?
"Do I need to register for a Half.com seller account if I already have an eBay seller account?
Yes. To list items on Half.com, you need to register with Half.com and open a seller account. This takes only a few minutes, and once it's done you'll be able to list on both sites. You can use the same user ID and password that you created for your eBay account for your new Half.com account, and all your feedback from both sites will be in one Feedback Forum. However, you'll be billed separately by Half.com and eBay for listing and final value fees."
But when I try to sign up with my eBay username, it says it's taken and I have to choose something else. I can't find any information on how to sign up with the same info as eBay, or even a way to contact half.com to ask.
Does anyone know how to do this?
[Edit: Thank you!]
Does it fluctuate daily?
What makes you happy or unhappy?
"I know you were like one of the 1st people to reply to my post but I've already filled up the car w/ other people from work so you'll have to figure out how to get to [music festival] on your own, lol. We'll save you a camping spot or something tho'." - heavily paraphrased text message
What was the last thing that made you go "FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU--"?
Can I have some funny macros to cheer me up? :(
do you think men naturally have a faster metabolism than women?

There's this dude in my apartment who calls my friend "broseidon" every day and acts as if it's the funniest fucking thing ever. My friend and I are trying to think of something clever to call him back (brosef stalin, leader of of the broletariat?). Any suggestions?
They aren't impacted or anything & I only have 3, I'm not scared or anything but I have no idea about the healing process.
I'm getting dropped off & picked up by my cousin, but can I stay by myself for the rest of the day? The receptionist said that I should have someone with me, but I'd rather just come home & relax I think. Should I have a girl friend or 2 over?
AlSO, what can I eat?
AND, I have plans Sunday. I'm going to a fundraiser for Haiti, and I have a meeting with a group for school.
I dunno, I didn't put much thought into it seeing as how they're grown in and what not... But my one friend is all "NO YOU'LL BE OUT FOR LIKE 3 DAYS" and slightly scaring me that I won't be able to do anything Sunday. The fundraiser is pretty important to me, and we have some really great speakers coming so I don't want to miss it!
I'm sure she's exaggerating because that's what she does, but it's still a bit frightening.
SO TQC, WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT POST-WISDOM TEETH?
( Collapse )
I was wondering what a good gift would be to get her. She isn't a girly girl "I love pink" type of person. I just don't want to get her something lame.
What would you get?
I've tried googling everything I can think of, went to millionairetv.com, etc...
What do you like or dislike about them?
When was the last time you went to a shower, and what was it for?
( Collapse )
Don't know or care: What was your last purchase?
I've already decided on a hair bump, bronzer, and some kind of blue eyeshadow somehow. And black heels that I can fall over and be a trashy beligerent drunk in. But what the fuck do I wear? I don't own any crazy white short-shorts or anything, plus it's gonna be cold as shit. What would you wear to a guido/guidette party in MA in January?
If it counts for anything, I will be watching Jersey Shore tonight and taking notes, but you guys are great at dressing up for parties.
ETA: Also, what color should I paint my nails for this classy and extravagant event???
2. can mac fans tell me pros to make the switch from PC to mac? i was anti-mac for awhile, so i'm aware of cons.

i slept over at my friend's the other night and i swore to god he was like eating or something. so i looked over and he was totally asleep but chomping his jaw. i've never seen or heard of anything like it.
Let's pretend that you just registered a brand new ElJay account and you want to join TQC. How would you go about doing that?
Bonus points if you're the one wearing it!
If I meet hajiomatic tomorrow, what are my chances of surviving unharmed?

At what point in my car's life do I need to consider changing the cambelt?
I drive an X-reg (late 2000) Peugeot 206 with almost 50k on the clock.
How easy is lasanga to make?
I am trying for the first time with a friend tomorrow, but I am nervous because pasta sheets really weird me the fuck out. Yes, I'm crazy.
ETA: Been to Yellowstone.
I have several skin tags on my neck. I went to the doctor to get them taken off (and go over some other health issues too) but he said I had to make a specific appointment just for that. He also said I could just deal with them because, according to him, they aren't that bad or I can cut them off myself if I feel brave enough.
Have you cut off skin tags before? How much did it hurt?
I don't want to wait for an appointment because it'll take a long time to get one and I don't really have the money for another appointment.
WHAT SHOULD WE DEW?!
