cheer me up, please?
What are your opinions on religion? Are you a follower of any?
I'm taking an Anthro/Socy/Religion (it's cross-listed like 30 times) class called "Religions, Magic and Witchcraft" this semester and I'm currently writing my first introductory reflection paper. I don't know if this is the time to go balls-out with what I think or if I just allude to my distaste for any and all religion in general.
The reason I'm taking this class is because I'm genuinely interest in how people who follow a religion think about that religion. I want to study the sociology and anthropology of religion to see where these passionate, deeply rooted beliefs come from. I think the psychology of faith and the ability to stand so strongly for something you accept as true with little to no proof is remarkable. That is to say, that no matter what I believe (or don’t), I don’t think one should remove those desire from anyone. I’m just very open to the idea of the origins, and dare I say evolution, of religions over the course of thousands of years.

If you had to Eternal Sunshine someone to forget they were ever a part of your life, who would it be?
If we buy them online, do the tickets start from the day we purchase them, or from the first time we use them at the park? Also, it didn't really give me any delivery options, it said something about an E-certificate. Do you think that will work for admission right away, or will I have still have to wait for the tickets to come in the mail?
I looked for a FAQs, but I really hate the WDW website and I didn't get too far with my questions.
will you tell me an urban legend/creepy post tiem?
Right colour, right style, right everything(Just add a corset)
I knew it as soon as I saw it.
When was the last time that or something similar happened to you?
( Collapse )
My parents and family tell me that I was being ridiculous because "that isn't what they do up here" and they just do regular coffee. I say that if you put it on the board, train your damn employees to serve a damn latte.
dk/dc What is your biggest pet peeve about clothing?
Is this something I should take a hit of albuterol for? The ER gave me a prescription for it and my aunt's mom was able to give me a brand new inhaler and albuterol since she gets one like every month on her insurance.
It can be a comic or a person or an object, etc.
Can fleas survive on human blood? I've read websites that said they don't like our blood and others saying they'll eat it but it's no good for reproduction. Which is true?
Will flea eggs get killed if I wash the clothes I was wearing while visiting? Do I need to wash with a special product?
( Collapse )
Finally found something conclusive. Basically; yes they will feed and survive on me. Eww ;_;
I can't call Verizon's insurance company or go to the store to get a new phone unless I'm the policy holder, right? I won't see my SO, who has the phone plan in his name, for a week.
I hate hearing about _________________________. Will you fill in the blank?
People like some ugly colors. y/n?
Donut holes or a bagel?
My life seems to have a pattern of people who _____________________.
2. What are your favorite breakup songs?
i have an interview later today and one of my nails is badly chipped. should i get a polish change or just hope they don't notice? :/
what's the most important thing you're doing today?
Sorry if that's awkwardly worded
What old TV shows do you love?
dk/dc When was the last time alcohol made you throw up? Last night was the first time ever for me.
Would it make a difference depending on what they left in the bowl?
2. Do you ever use the Express Check Out (15 items or less)? If you do, do you always have 15 items or less?
3. Where did you last go out to eat; what did you have?
I'm going grocery shopping today for the first time in WEEKS and I need some inspiration. What should I buy? What should I cook? (I'm a pescatarian.)
Should I bake mint chocolate brownies today?
I did an efile for my taxes, and I had to redo them and resend them because I got my social security number wrong.
So I fixed it and sent it back on April 15.
I got my state tax refund. Why didn't I get my federal refund yet?
I checked online at the "where is my refund" page, and it says that they can't give me any information
What was the last thing to frustrate you?
Also, if you have had this problem before, is it easy to resolve? I printed out the uninstallation guide I found on Google, and it's pretty straightforward, but I'm worried it won't be effective. Should I try it myself and then call Best Buy? Should I call Best Buy first?
Tell me a story of failed electronics in your life? D:
EDIT: Yay I'm not the only one!
DID I IMAGINE THIS WHOLE SHOW? Or does it exist? Please help.
who was the last person you stopped talking to?
i'm playing pandemic 2. every living human is infected. the vaccine has been deployed but it failed.
NOBODY HAS DIED THO.
seriously. fever, vomiting, sores, pulmonary edema. hospitals all shut. THESE BITCHES WON'T DIE!
What's the best deal/coupon you've seen recently?
Do you think it's odd for a woman/man to wear a ring that is not a wedding/engagement/promise ring on their ring finger? I have a ring I wear on my ring finger, but it's my only ring and I wear it there because it's the only finger that it fits on. I sliced the "matching" finger's knuckle off a long time ago, so it's all squishy and big.
After some waiting and reading (the whole paper) they don't appear to be coming and aren't answering your calls.
How long would you wait for someone you've made concrete plans with?
I was supposed to meet mentioned "friend" at 10:30am and waited for over an hour before going home. She just called me and said "My bad I thought we were meeting around 10:30." Since when is over an hour late around 10:30? Luckily for her I had reading material or I would have been really pissed. I know I'm not doing anything today, but still.
One morning while hiking alone, you find a UNICORN! It's friendly and approaches you without fear. What do you do?
I'm the latter.
2)What's the world's worst tv show?
3)Are there too many games and too little time?
Have you ever received a text from someone who dialed the wrong number? Did you ignore it or text them back?
What are you supposed to do when you accidentally send a text to the wrong number? Send another one that says "sorry, wrong number?" Do nothing and hope they just delete it?

I try to make mine last for at least two years. However my son gets a new one every year because he's growing so fast and gets his so dirty.
Where do you like to shop for coats?
When you see the Wizard, what will you ask for?
So, this leads me to two questions for you, TQC:
1) Do you think "everyone" takes pictures of themselves naked? (Or partially naked. Some kind of naked.) I have! I took one for my girlfriend years ago and she 'accidentally' sent it to her best friend. (And by accidentally, I mean intentionally. That'll teach me.) Personally, I think a lot of people do, but I don't think every single person who owns a camera has, or even the majority have.
2) Isn't arguing on Twitter pointless? I suppose it teaches you to make your argument in 140 characters or less.
Do you have any shoes wearing rules in your house?
Sometimes I wear slippers, mostly I walk around barefoot.
Two weird rules; no thunking up the stairs late at night which usually results in shoes coming off, and also no high heels on the soft pine floors as they leave holes.
However my parter's best man is most likely going to be someone who we have only been friends with for the last six months. Now that his choice and this bloke is fucking awesome guy who my partner just clicked with, they are almost brothers...thats how well they get along.
However our friend's partner is not going to be bridesmaid. I am not as close with as we are with him(The best man)
Is that going to be awkward? I know not all bridesmaids have to be partners with those in the groom's party but I am going to feel weird about not choosing her. Especially as we are good friends with her, in fact really good friends...but I chose these girls as my bridesmaids before I even knew her and got engaged.
I know its my wedding my choice but I dont want to piss anyone off.
How would you go about doing this?
EDIT: She will still be invited obviously.
What's the best way to avoid having to hold, watch over, or otherwise pay attention to someone's baby or child? Going to a wedding this weekend, and almost all of my cousins have at least one kid.
What is your favourite classic internet Flash Cartoon? (ex. How Is Babby Formed)
I'm constantly having to buy new tweezers. I don't know where they keep going to!
Should I walk out in the 90 degree heat 2 blocks and ask them to remake it? Or just eat it now? I know they'll replace it (they're really nice), but is it worth the effort?
DK/DC: Who is your favorite person outside of your family under the age of 12? how about over the age of 50?
ETA: I have no more cans and I can't add more hair to the existing cans; I tried having them with more hair but it didn't work well.
Have you ever been an extra in a film or a tv show?
How did you stumble upon that?
what do you think pirate werewolves sinking your refugee submarine means?
is it significant that these werewolves were the same ones that pillaged and burned your village, thus turning you and your entire village into refugees?
apparently, drowning means i am being overwhelmed, but the pirate werewolf part is where i get lost.
have you had any comparable dreams, tqc?
My fiancee has a friend who is getting married and she is claiming she is only spending $20 per person. Is this even possible? The website for the country club she is doing the reception has packages that start at $45 per person.
If I thought I could get away with that I would keep looking, but you can't even get a nice meal at a casual restaurant around here for that much, let alone service and alcohol.
GIVE ME MOTIVATION TO GO?
Mine is "sleek". Also "slick", "slicker", and "sneaky."
If I do decide to put something on the invitation, how do I phrase it? Should I phrase it, or just expect that if someone has a dietary issue, they can bring what they like?
How would you go about handling each one of these situations? Have a story on any of these happening irl?
5) Continuous hiccups
DK/DC: What's the worse/best/most random piece of computer software you've ever seen?
If so, what images do you typically use it for?
I HATE OWLS and apparently they're all the rage now. FFFFFUUUUUU-
No offense to kilolux :p
If not, do you think I should/would be right to say something to him about it? I realize he is paying for his room so he should be able to do whatever he wants in it, but I still feel like this apartment is mine considering everything in every other room belongs to me and I've been here for so long. What should I say to him, if anything?
What is you astrological sign? Does it even matter to you? Do you think that it suits you?
I think Boards of Canada is great, but the song "Aquarius" is SO FREAKING ANNOYING. >:|
ETA: Now that we've named, like, every Beatles song known to man... how about any other band please :)
What do you have planned for tonight?
How are you doing today? any interesting stories that you ant to share?
If you are vegan, or pretend that you are, what would be your thoughts on wool socks in the winter? Do you think most vegans will say no to clothes made out of wool?
What are the odds someone in North Carolina is going to lose a TRAILER????
I lost my phone at the weekend, went to the store to get a new sim and turns out I actually stopped my insurance two years ago for some reason and never set it back up again. So, yay, wayhoo, I can't get a replacement I have to buy it.
The phone I used to have was a HTC Desire so it was really expensive, new it would cost roughly £430 not tied to a contract.
So here are my options:
A) Buy new phone for £430, use it with the same contract/sim as before and insure the phone through my bank separately.
B) Cancel off the remainder of my contract with Vodafone, I'm only a few months into my contact so it would cost about £375. Get a new phone with Vodafone/another network in a contract.
C) Downgrade my minutes/texts/internet roaming access with the current sim. Use that as an emergency back-up in a cheap phone. Pay a minimal direct debit on that and take out a new contract with Vodafone/someone else with a phone included.
D) Buy a cheap phone, swallow my pride and wait until next year for an upgrade (if you want to chose this option, fine okay but chose another option too as a second one plzzzzzzz)
I love it because more often than not the groom gets it so right, despite the bride spending three weeks worrying herself sick about what it's going to turn out like. It's nice to see the wonderful reactions when they get it right, and sometimes quite enjoyable getting angry at how spoilt some of the brides are when you can see everything the grooms are going for them.
What's your favourite guilty pleasure tv show, tqc? Why?
thank you for adding a retarded feature that no longer allows me to tab-enter when i want to post a comment. i now have to tab-tab-enter and that is just ridiculous.
would you like to complain about anything?
*this of course on the grounds you are a nice enough person to give up your seat at all*
It tastes like warm diet Sprite to me. :/
It's going to be about 60 miles (95km) in one direction.
How much gas money would you ask for from each one of them?
I'd like to take her for free, her being my sister and all, but I'm a poor student and I can't afford to give out free taxi rides, especially not within these distances. I was thinking about something between 6,50 to 9$ (5 to 7€).
dk/dc: When was the last time you thoroughly cleanded your room/appartement/house/etc.?
Anything funny you've had to explain to your parents lately?
and my dads only 56, and quite computer/internet savvy...how he missed that, I don't know :)
I have friends..but not a set group. Which sucks.
Have you ever gotten a spray tan? Did you look like a pumpkin after? Am I stupid for waiting so long, y/y? What would you do?
Should I go to the Apple store tomorrow and raise hell/demand a new computer?
DK/DC: What kind of computer are you using?
ETA: I probably won't really raise hell, I know it won't get me far. The Apple store was great the last time I had to take it in, I'm just frustrated with the computer right now :(
WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?
Don't like folkish music/don't wanna watch streaming concerts: Will you describe your bedroom? Or post pictures of it?
no lurkers pls
What's grossed you out recently?
I need something to do or watch because I am so freaking bored right now. What games or movies could I entertain myself with?
Have you ever played The Game? Yeah, I just lost.
I'm having a bad week. Sunday night my laptop crashed just after I finished an assignment, and the laptop won't turn on properly anymore, I had no sleep, Monday I had a panic attack in my tutorial and then that night I ended up having to go to hospital with a suspected broken elbow. I headed up to university today with my laptop to bring it to the IT help desk to see if they could diagnose the problem and they told me to go away and take it to a computer shop without even taking a look at it. I'm borderline tearing up right now because nothing seems to be going right this week and my arm is killing me.
My question is; do you think my week will get any better/improve?
If a psychic, what would you want your power to be? If a wizard, what kind of magic would you specialize in?
Srs + Nonsrs ansrs ok!
mine has got to be "i still haven't found what i'm looking for"- u2.
it makes me yearn to live.
Wouldn't it make the most sense for me to just stay awake for the next 6-7 hours and pack/eat/____/shower/head off, rather than getting a paltry 30 min/1 hour nap? My sister is lending me headphones, and not many children travel on early morning business flights, so I'll sleep on the plane anyway.
After I finish what needs to be done, what should I do to occupy my time? Reading new Tumblr posts and watching Adventure Time With Finn & Jake is a given.
When is the last time you flew somewhere, and where did you go?
What is the most hilarious/ridic thing you've seen at Walmart?
And no "people of walmart" links, this has to be something YOU have seen personally.
I very rarely get riled up by other people, but this dude is making me crazy right now.
Caress Me Down
How would you prefer to do it? Me, I'd like to beat them to death with a pipe or something.
SN: I've perused Amazon & Google with the search of 'constellation globe' & 'light up constellation globe' & neither turned up anything that I'm looking for.
In your opinion, what are the most abused words in the English language?
She comes day and night.
What should I do?
How about some zebra green heirloom tomatoes? What are your other favorite varieties of heirloom tomatoes? I got some today but forget the names of them.
Also, what should I do with a ton of zucchini?
Do you like laser light shows at concerts?
Edit: and also, apparently, now my left leg
So, Question Club, what should my banner read?
Thanks in advance. :-)
What would your very first reaction be if this happened?
