Why is WD40 as good a contact bug spray as Raid? Haven't found an insect it doesn't work quickly on, and it even dissolves the legs off of various species before killing them.

Nerves

I am getting some elective cosmetic work done tomorrow and as much as I won't feel any pain aside from the needles for anasthetic, I am feeling fairly apprehensive. What's worse is that I wont have anybody there with me to comfort and stop me from freaking out...

I am looking forward to this but at the same time I am just getting nervous

When was the last time you were nervous about something like this?

Do you know of any books or movies that involve three-way relationships?  Will you tell me about them?

I don't mean love triangles, but three people who are willingly in a threesome.   Or, because I suppose I can't be too picky, two people who are knowingly "sharing" a third is fine too.  

I don't care if it's all female, all male, or a mixture of the three.   I'm just looking for something and coming up empty-handed.

Edit: I went out to lunch on Tuesday and paid with my debit card. I just checked my balance and that charge has been reversed and the money's back on my card. How long do you think it'll be before the restaurant realizes the mistake and takes the money back?

2nd edit: Well, the money is gone again.

A genie has agreed to grant you a wish, but he's a very young genie and has only learned how to grant three very specific wishes. Which one would you choose?

1) You will never truly embarrass yourself again. You'll still make mistakes and fail at your goals sometimes, but you'll never again put your foot in your mouth, look ridiculous, or otherwise humiliate yourself. The only exception is making risky predictions, where you are on your own.

2) You will be completely immune to the common cold. Oh, and leprosy. All other diseases are still fair game.

3) When you begin collecting social security, a bureaucratic error will cause you to receive twice as much money as you are otherwise entitled to. This error will never be discovered, and will continue until you die.

I am getting my first tattoo soon - probably for my 29th birthday. I have wanted one for a decade but could never figure out something important enough to make permanent on my beautiful skin! So I've finally decided on a poem that I adore and as much as I want something super original, this poem is what means that much to me, so yeah. I'm excited but scared! So now I have to decide on where and font.

Do you have any text tattoos? (Pics if you have them..)

I'm meeting Pat Benatar tomorrow.
I bought her book a few weeks ago with the intention of reading it before meeting her. I've been putting it off, however, because I read 50 pages or so and was fairly unimpressed with the writing.
Anyway, there are about 200 pages left to be read today. How long do you think it'll take me to finish?
Idk what my reading speed is exactly, but if it's a book I'm really into I can get through 500 pages/night. My reading is obv slower with books like this where the writing rubs me the wrong way. :/


Alternatively, do you know your reading speed? When reading at your fastest, how is your comprehension?

Serious question this time.

I have two hamsters, a male and a female.

The female used to be quite aggressive, but now that she has a bigger cage she is quite calm. The male is a love, he won't harm anyone.

I want them to live in the same cage, since one is pretty big and the other one is small, and I believe they could keep each other company, but the girl won't have any of it. The one time we tried to get each other to meet them we cleaned the big cage to get rid of any female smell and place the two hamsters there, five minutes latter the female was trying to kill the male one.

Since that day we've kept them in separate cages, but I was wondering, is there a good way to try to make them friends again or we should just let them where they are?


ETA: 

Okay, thanks for the answers.
I thought hamsters liked to be together (This is the first time I have hamsters) but now I see they don't. I'll keep them in separate cages.

Thanks!


ETA AGAIN.

I'll close the comments now people, thanks for the answers.

I realize I asked something pretty stupid. I'm glad I asked though, because thanks to all the answers I know what I shouldn't do. If I hadn't asked then something horrible would have happened. So yes, it's better to look stupid in front of you people than ending up with a dead hamster.

I'm sorry if I made someone mad or something, it won't happen again.

I got a call at 8am this morning that I ignored. When I woke up, I googled the number. It was the collections line from my electric company. My housemate was responsible for the last 2 payments since I was on vacation. He looked up his bank account, and no payments had been taken out for the electric company. I just called and paid the $200 overdue bill with my debit card over the phone.

Is there still going to be a penalty because this went to collections? Did it hurt my credit? (the electric is under my name.) Am I done with collections now that I paid it through the main company, or did they send some other hidden fee to them?

How should I murder my housemate? He failed to pay rent as well.

Im not sure if this is allowed


 

So this is sort of a homework question and I know they are not allowed but I thought since I am not asking for help with my homework that some nice people might have a suggestion.  So this is my problem; I am in school taking on line classes from north Carolina but i live in Colorado.  I need help with a paper and need to visit a writing lab but all the Colleges around me only allow students to utilize theirs.  Since I cant go back to North Carolina to get editing help I was wondering does anyone know of any on line editing/paper reviewing sort of thing? I would prefer it to be free but I would pay for a credible and honest site. Or does anyone have any ideas on what I should do?.  So if this is too homeworky please don't yell at me just ask me to erase and I will.  I am really not trying to break the rules but I feel like this isn't me asking other people to do my homework for me.  I am just in a really tight spot and don't know what to do.  Thank you

TQC, I got myself into a pickle. My parents are divorced, and so I usually go back and forth between them during summers and weekends. I'm home for the summer, and both my parents made plans and bought tickets for the same day. My mom bought hers first, told me a general time for the event, like end of July, beginning of August. It's for a baseball game with her work, one of the biggest corporate events at the ballpark, and her work is where I'm volunteering - so I think it would be a great networking opportunity for me, in addition to being a lot of fun. And then my dad bought tickets after for a specific date, giving me options, and then I told them to just pick a date. It's for the musical Young Frankenstein, which I'm not very excited for, (I'm not a fan of Mel Brooks), and the tickets are pretty expensive.

My dad initially said it seemed fair to go with whomever got the tickets first, which would be my mom. But I feel bad, considering his tickets are expensive and he gave me options for dates and tried to make sure I would go. Of course I should have looked at the dates ahead of time, consulted my mom, but this has never happened to me before!

What should I do?

I have a friend who's had the same dog since the day he (the dog) was born. This dog is REALLY cool. Relaxed, dumb beyond belief, but really sweet. He just so happens to also be a Pit who's a little extra protective. A couple weeks ago, he nipped at a kid who was harassing my friend's son. The kid wasn't hurt at all, but the kid's mom called the cops. Besides having to go to court for it, they were just told they either have to get rid of the dog or move. My friend thinks of this dog as one of her kids, but she can't really afford to move. TQC, what would you do in this situation? Do you have any words of advise I can pass on to her?
