Do you ever get bouts of tiredness that just go all of a sudden?

Like tonight I was losing focus, blazing pain in my head couldn't keep my eyes open, like it actually hurt to stay awake. But I had to babysit so I forced myself awake and after about an hour it went. This was about 7.30. But now it's almost 1am here, I haven't actually been to sleep but I don't feel the urge to go to bed for work tomorrow.

Would you say this sounded normal?

When was the last time you needed some mind bleach?

I just got on Facebook and saw my most recent ex, who came out as gay shortly after we broke up, talking dirty with his new boyfriend. We were happily together three months ago. Seeing that was just too weird for me. Has anyone else had this experience? How long did it take you to get over it? I'm perfectly fine with how things turned out, wouldn't want him any other way, glad he's happy, etc. But hearing about him having sex with other guys is a little much this soon after the breakup. Can I get some validation here?

I'm thinking about getting my mom at spa day package for her birthday. But I don't know the first thing about spas. What's a reasonable amount to be spent for a massage and possibly a facial package? Possibly foot massage as well? She's never been to one, so I don't want her to be too uncomfortable, so is there anything recommended for first time visitors to try or avoid? Swedish massage vs hot stone massage vs blah blah massage??? I can't really spend that much though, so any other ideas to make her feel extra special?

Treadmills

To those walk or run either freestyle or on tredmill, how brisk and how long do so to lose weight and or get fit?

I am getting treadmill today and plan on being on it everyday for about half an hour...but I want to lose about ten kilos(approx 20 pounds) in close to a month (for a holiday and for general health) and I am not sure if that will be enough.

I also have good diet, I dont eat much crap so I will be joining this with a good eating plan.

EDIT: I plan 10k in month...i have done it before and was still healthy, the only reason i need to do it again because meds I was on made me gain the weight

Hey guys!

Have you ever gone through a phase in your life where you are a lot happier going places alone, and where you actually had more fun being alone?

Right now I'm very far from home at a summer research program, and I have been happier than I have been in years!! I've met new people here, but I'm actually preferring to go out on my own and explore, instead of spending time with people.

Do you think that it's possible for a person to live like this, and stay happy? Or do you think this will fade out when I'm used to this place?

hi TQC
while i was sufing Russian blogs this morning, i've found tonnes of posts devoted to Marvin Heemeyer and to the event happened on this day in 2004
the story of him is *really* popular today here (i mean, in "russian area" of lj), I must admit
I think, in most cases bloggers wrote about him just to raise the topic of pressure on the individual and the topic of combating corruption, and other things. like a media-form of social protest
and, of course, it would be interesting for me to know, what do Americans think of him?
was he the man who had the balls to fight for his right, or did he solve his problem too radically?

Pets

So I rescued a cat the other month. I've never had a cat before. I've had many other animals though. 

My fiance grew up with a cat but said they never walked her. I find this weird. What animal wants to live it's whole life inside?! I used to walk my 6 ft iguana when he was alive, and my snake, and well just every animal I've ever had in my care. 

If you have a cat do you walk it? How did harness/leash training go? What harness is the best for cats?
I'm against letting your cat roam around by itself so I wont be letting her out of the house unless she's in a harness and on a leash and I'm with her. 

Will you tell me a story about a pet and post a picture of your current pets? (mine in comments)

ETA: Off to buy a harness to start training!

TQC, are there any tech geniuses in the house? For Christmas, I got a G Drive 500GB external hard drive. I used it on my iMac (Leopard 10.5.8) and on my old Macbook (running Tiger 10.4)

Then one day, perhaps to just frustrate me, the iMac stopped recognizing the drive.

The laptop still realizes the drive is connected, but the iMac ignores it completely. I've tried connecting it every way possible. Firewire, USB, it still won't recognize the drive.

How do I get this stupid machine to recognize my drive? I really need the files on the drive.

I've tried Googling the website for the drive, but it appears to have been designed by people who don't actually want to solve problems.

I'm watching the national spelling bee right now. Is anyone else? Is that totally lame of me, considering it's Friday night?

Have you ever been in a bee? Will you tell us about it? I was in my middle school's geography bee. I came in second because I missed a question about the official language of some island nation. The winning question? "To which country would you travel if you wanted to ride a bullet train and stay in a Tokyo hotel?" I pretty much facepalmed on stage. 

It's hypothetical. Really.

If someone asked you (The Question Club) what [guro, bukkake, a dirty Sanchez] was, and said they didn't want to "JFIG" because they're afraid they might get unwanted image results (even Wikipedia has some pretty disturbing images, and occasionally someone will post an image to UrbanDictionary), how would you react?

Would you just answer the question? Would you be a total bastard and post an image depicting whatever it was? Would you do something else, like ignore the question or post "in b4 drama"?

Let's assume that the person knew it was "something bad," which is why they didn't want to Google it.

Hypothetical situation.
You have a house in the country, so your yard doesn't have a fence. Late at night, you hear the sounds of a dog in distress. You go outside, and you see a huge dog flailing around in your swimming pool. It's trying to get out, but it can't. There apparently is no handicapped ramp or shallow, and no ladder. It is not near a drainage slot, and it's tiring, panicking. You are about five feet, and you're not muscular enough to lift the thing out, and plus it's a strange dog that could possibly bite you. But then again, you are a pet lover. What could you do to safely pull this mongrel out of the pool without getting bitten?

Spare tire cover
