What are some little weird things that your parents/other relatives/friends do that make no sense to you?
My friend's dad always says, "Raaaaiiin!" when something annoyingly bad has just happened. As in if he knocks a drink over his book, or if he parks too far from the parking meter or whatever.
Have you made any new friends lately? Are you still in the "honeymoon" phase where they don't annoy you at all yet? Isn't that the best?

I've been mildly ill for the past few days with nausea and either throwing up or wanting to whenever I eat. I started to feel better yesterday (just in time for work, yay) but this morning the wanting to throw up feeling is back with a vengeance. Problem is, I have a huge festival that I'm going to today, and cannot miss, so Dr. TQC, what can I do to make this feeling go away (or at least lessen it)? And what the hell is wrong with me?

You're renting a house with your friends. Something breaks and your landlord has to come over and fix it. It gets fixed and isn't a big deal.
Your landlord emails you/your roommates in the next few days asking you to keep the place cleaner: the litter box smells, there is dog poop all over in the front yard, and the appliances are pretty dirty.
Is the landlord within his rights to ask this, or is he out of line?
Edit: I'm not the landlord nor the renter.

My boyfriend's parents are racist. It started off as a few little jokey comments and has escalated to 15 minute trades about the asian "drug dealer" (a random asian guy who happens to have his hair in a bun) in the lobby of their building who they're watching from the car. There are at least two offensive comments every time I'm around them.
Every time I don't say something I feel guilty, and I resent my boyfriend for not saying anything to them either. He is close to his parents and I honestly think he has just turned a blind eye because he doesn't want to believe his parents are that ignorant/hateful whatever.
Have you ever been in a situation like this? What should I say/do? I've been trying to get my boyfriend to say something, but he's afraid of it escalating into huge fight that will dissolve into them never talking to him again.
Based on a question below, if you could kill any current television show, what would it be?

ETA: not too big of a dog, either. the first dogs that came to mind were labs or retrievers, but those get a little big.
ETA2: there is a breed whose coat is almost silver and gold and grey, and i cannot remember the name of the breed for the life of me. any help?

About a month ago I applied for a job I found on craigslist (lol) and I had a long conversation with the guy the next day about it. At the end of the call he was like well call me Monday morning (this was a Friday) and we'll arrange a time for you to come in and see if this works out. I of course called him Monday morning, I left a message, and I never heard back from him. I think I should have handled it differently (left a message but also said I'd call him back, etc) but what's done is done. ANYWAY I see now that the job is reposted. Would it be really out of line to send my info again? My impression was that as of ending the phone interview with me, he was still interested and I was definitely confused as to what I could have done wrong in my message to him on Monday that would have changed his mind.

Have you ever eventually read the instructions/directions on something you use fairly commonly and sort of went "...Oh"?
I've had a bad cough the last several days so I've been sucking down Halls like candy. Sudden curiosity led me to actually read the bag where it says "dissolve 1 drop slowly in the mouth. Repeat every 2 hours as needed."
. . . One every two hours? I've think I've tripled that some days.

I've only had one meal today but for some reason I'm not hungry. This happens to me once in a while and I never know what to do. My dining hall closes in an hour and I definitely won't be hungry by then, but I don't want to go to bed if I haven't had enough food. Helppppppp.

I have a personal trainer at my gym. We set up our next week's schedule on our last appt. of the week. So on Friday, we set up an appointment for this Tuesday 6-7AM. Saturday, I learned I had to work super early Tuesday morning. So I called his work voice mail at 6:45am on Saturday and left a message saying I could no longer make it in Tuesday due to my work schedule, but was fine for the rest of the week. I have not heard back from him and it is now Monday night. I called again today but he never picks up his phone. I am worried he did not get my voice mail and is going to expect me tomorrow.
Should I be worried? Is there anything else I can do?

I got my health insurance from work this month, and I'm looking on the website to find a primary care physician. I haven't been to a doctor in years, and have some problems I'd like to talk to someone about -- both physical and mental.
The doctors are listed by specialty, and a lot of them are listed under "internal medicine." Are these doctors I can't go to? I'm kind of confused which kind of doctor I should be looking for.
Anyone with some knowledge in the medical field that can help me out?
If someone is at the table at the post office where the line is, with a stack of letters in front of them that they're addressing, is it acceptable to go ahead of them in line? I did this today and she yelled at me that I was cutting in line, even though she clearly wasn't ready to mail her letters. The woman working there stood up for me though and told her not to hassle the other customers.
Who was in the right? She was there first, but I was ready and she wasn't, so I didn't want to have to wait for her to finish when there was an available cashier.
Is it ok to want something materialistic when you know you are godamn broke(in poverty i should say)? Is it ok to try and get it? What if people think "she cant afford much but she cant afford that my god.. "? is it still ok?
Canadian Question TIEM!!!
So recently I was able to track down the first season of Made in Canada. I would buy it on DVD but it's out of print. Who do I contact in order to convince to re-release it, and with the first season release the other ones on DVD? This series ran until 2003. It should all be on DVD.
this series was shown on the television channel CBC. But it was produced by Salter Street Company, which was sold to Atlantis, and then became the Halifax Film Company which turned into DHX Media in 2008. This is so confusing to me. Who owns this series now? Who do I contact? Do people do this kind of thing? I'm sure they have some "Public Relations" or "Customer Service" department. I know CBC does!
Thanks in advance for even reading this mess :) .

In the video game Heavy Rain, is there any way to backtrack or re-load earlier saves, or do you just have to start the game again if something doesn't go well?
@_@ Ethan keeps dying and I went to the trouble of playing the game through a second time only to have him get shot by the cops. I'm hoping there is some way to save, I don't want to play through again. I'm playing on the PS3, if that matters.
Edit: yes, yes you can. I am stupid.
