    What if you saw a guy riding his bike in the night? hes wearing a 16 inch glow in the dark strap on dido. the guy is going fast, breathing heavily , and his dildo is moving up and down.

DnD 4.0

 So, I used to play dungeons and dragons v 3.5. I was a cleric necromancer, and since the rules for necromancy varied from book to book I was pretty damn OP. Now a different set of friends want me to play with them, but they play 4.0. I'm really, really  bad at making good characters and I totally lucked out on the last one I made. What is a really, really strong class to be? How would you play it? What is your favorite class? My friends were really good about telling me what classes/prestige classes rocked in 3.5, but they got no clue about 4.0 and neither do I.

I don't really mind what class (although I prefer spellcasting classes), I just want to know how to make a strong character and not noob it up.

food as a tool for punishment or reward

how do you feel about using food as a punishment or reward for childrens behavior? Mostly sweets or junk food specificly, ie you can have this junk if you do what you are supposed to; if you misbehave you cannot have this(sweet, dessert, or junk) food?

I'm drinking out of a lowball glass that has the following sequence on a gold colored band around the rim:

ACD-AA-AC-T-AT-A-BS-C-DD-EK-GE-GF-GM-GT-HR-N-IP-JM-OI-PG-S-SD-J-SWX-TX-UK-UA-X-WX-Z-

The glass also has an annotated graph of the Dow-Jones Industrial Average from 1966-1976. The letters do not appear in that sequence anywhere on the internet. Well, at least until now. So, is this glass some super-sekrit stockmarket-related code? Is it the key to fame and fortune? Or is it just tacky 70s glassware?

If it helps you make your decision, on the graph July 1975 is labeled "NYC FISCAL PROBLEM BIG MAC". I'm sure that's important somehow.

Three young (blond, half-dressed) teenaged girls are standing on the edge of a train track and are sticking body parts on the track in the spirit of chicken.

Do you say anything? What?

You just this morning experienced a high-speed passing through this particular track. Anyone playing this game at that time would have been dead.

Now do you say something? What?

One of the girls starts to put pennies on the track.

Do you say something?

The platform around the track is extremely crowded.

Now?

Bonus: Can a train hit a penny on the track at the right angle to launch the penny off the track and potentially hurt someone?

A week or two ago, I posted about my best friend and I going on vacation and we've finally picked a destination... GREECE!!! The only problem is that neither of us have ever planned a vacation and we don't even know what to do now. My aunt is paying for our trip and after approving our choice of Greece, she said "please make your plans, tell me the budget for airfares, hotel, transportation in Greece, food and ouzo."

So.... um.... what do we do now?

A lot(to) love

You're hanging out with your friend, and she really needs to buy groceries and is broke and asks to borrow $20. You happen to have the money and loan it to her and you both head down the street to the quickie mart/AMPM/7-11/whatever. After purchasing her groceries, she's given back a dollar in change. She decides to spend that money on a lottery ticket. It turns out to be a winner, worth $1,000,000. In all fairness, how much do you think you should get?

Nothing. I just loaned her the twenty. What she does with it is her business, and what she reaps with it is all hers. I just want my twenty back

Have you ever done something nice for somebody in an effort to make their life easier and then have it backfire on you instead?  

Once again this has happened to me at work when I posted a sign in the office to help our guests and later learned that the person who the signs pointed to didn't want it up.    I had to take it down and feel stupid and foolish. 


Why do I even try anymore?

People with iPods, which iPod/generation do you have?

I have a second generation shuffle, but I'm thinking of upgrading since I've had it for 3 years and I'm almost at max capacity. The new shuffle is pretty much identical to the 2nd gen one I have (I'm glad they went back to the 2nd gen design 'cause it is by far the best design for the shuffle). I'm thinking about the new nano too, because the small physical size appeals to me, but I'm not sure about the lack of buttons.... Tell me about your iPOD and what you like about it.

I just got home from the dentist.

Before the lady started cleaning them, she wanted to check my blood pressure. It was 117/80 which she then described as "pretty high"

Basically she's crazy, right? Unless I'm an idiot and now all of a sudden everyone else in the world has lowered their blood pressure without informing me that I should too.

How stupid was it of me to allow her to use sharp tools in my mouth after that comment?

so i took a year off of school to live in another state and now that i'm back, i've realized pretty much all of my friends have graduated and/or left town.

how can i make some new friends? it's weird because i consider this town (eugene, or) to be 'home' in many ways, but now i feel like a newcomer again because i hardly know anybody here anymore. i'm in my final year of school and working on my thesis and taking only upper-level seminars with students in my major (and i'd like to meet people outside my major).

I NEED FRIENDS :C

i have nothing to cook. all i have in my room is cereal, instant oatmeal, yogurt, and two bottles of wine.
i don't want to go to the 'snack bar' and get something there.
i don't have a car and don't feel like walking 20 minutes into town when it's 90° outside.

 Have you learned or discovered anything lately that has made you really, really excited and happy?


Inspired by all of those people who responded to the ramen query with "Why didn't I ever think to add an egg?" Because then I thought about how they're all going to go home and try it, and they will be all like, "Oh my stars and whiskers, this is so good!" And they will be happy forever. 

But I cannot have that, since I already know to add an egg to ramen. So I need to make a new wondrous discovery that will change my life, at least for a little while. Tell me something awesome, please?


...This is also inspired by the fact that I am still at work, even though I technically get off at 5:30. My job sucks sometimes. I want something to look forward to later.

Hi TQC

I think I am getting a car from Hertz- basically you reserve one of their rental cars and can rent it for 3 days to see if you want to buy it. It's a 2009 Toyota Corolla w/ 40,000 miles (which I am a little skeptical about since that seems like a lott for a car in a year) and its $11,400 to buy. Does this seem like a good deal? Have you bought a used car from a rental place like this or known anyone who has?

Paypal

Have you ever had to file a claim through paypal for an item that was never received?
Was it a hassle or did things go smoothly? Did you get the full refund or end up with a partial?

I ordered an item off a website using paypal and ended up not receiving it after 30 days. I went through the Resolution Center and waited 13 more days before finally filing a claim. Now I have to wait 10 more days to see if the seller will actually respond. So the process kind of sucks, but I'm hoping to at least get a full refund... *cross fingers*

Do hair dye kits have expiration dates?

I've been wanting to do something with my hair for a while. I found a crimson dye kit at CVS and tried to do my bangs crimson, but I didn't bleach them first so all I got was a semipermanent mulberryish glow you could only see when a light was shining directly on my head.

Fate seems to like me tonight, though, because as I was going through the few dye kits we keep in the linnen closet, at the very back I found a crimson-red highlights dye kit made to be used ONLY on dark hair. Without bleaching first.

Holy shit yay.

The thing is, I have no idea how old this kit is. I suspect my sister probably bought it, which she'd have done before she moved out, so it's at least two years old. It might be older than that.

Neither the box nor the instruction sheet has an expiration date anywhere I can find. The little clear tamper-proof sticker had been broken but all the contents are there and it's quite obvious that nothing has ever been opened except MAYBE the direction sheet.

Given this box might be up to 5 years old, should I still use it to do my hair tonight?

You live in an apartment building. All summer no one lived above you, then a week ago two guys move in. They have wood floors and walk very very heavily causing the whole apartment to shake with each of their steps. They drop things on the floor and it sounds like a bomb, and they bounce some sort of ball off the floor. You work from 1am to 6am forcing you to sleep during the day but can't because of their noise plus you have college classes from 9am to 8:30pm every day. The inability to sleep is causing you stress and emotional break downs, as well as your SO's blood pressure to rise. What do you do?
