I asked a 11 year old Arabic boy if he needed a "cous" when the word I meant was "cos". Cous means pussy; cos means cup.

What's the longest you've lived in one residence? Tell me about it, and if applicable tell me about the emotions you experienced when you moved from there.
So QC, what should be the topic of my proposed documentary if that doesn't work out?
Topic is not limited as long as it is not dealing with violence or drugs. Not only as a person and filmmaker, but as a student, I am trying to keep off those topics since they've been done a lot.
FF is going to bed, so she may reply back a little late. Apologies in advance.
Does anyone know of any writings (books, journal articles, etc) that delve into the fact that all cultures and traditional religions view women as subordinate (edit: or rather, place women in a subordinate role, even if it's justified in a 'nice' way such as women being sacred)? All the feminism discourse I've read tends to be very culture-specific but I feel like a pretty key issue is being missed in not considering it from a metacultural perspective. I am pretty sure I'm not the first person to think about this but I haven't had much luck finding anything.
Specifically something reasonably academic that has references. I'll read someone's anecdata-driven opinion piece out of interest, but that's not so much what I'm after.
Edit: If you disagree with this claim I am also really, really interested in anything verifiable that contradicts it. This is what I've learnt from my cross-cultural studies at University; the concept is widely expressed in a range of materials I've read and I've to date not found anything to contradict it. I'm studying cross-cultural communication rather than a subject that has a specific gender focus so I'm conscious that it's of limited depth on the matter.
But it can't credibly be denied that this is certainly the case for the vast majority of cultures and religions, even ones that are very different geographically and historically. There's a pattern there that goes beyond the individual cultures and I think that's important.
Or would you not give a damn if you knew you were more attractive than this person?
2. Would calling in sick to work on the Friday of Halloween weekend raise skepticism?
I was the first one down last night at a friends memorial gathering and I had way too much rose without eating beforhand and I am feeling pretty sleazy...At the moment I eating plain corn ships and black tea.
Aside from whining, should I:
a) Study for my sociology test?
b) Start working on my sociology paper?
c) Start working on my case management paper?
d) Say "fuck it, I'm sick" and play Sims?

You're on a first date. The guy seems nice and interesting enough and you have a couple things in common. Which of the following things could you overlook and would agree to a second date? Any option you leave blank you see as a 'dealbreaker' that would result in you not wanting to see him again

I'm babysitting a 2-year-old and I just noticed she was eating something small, round, and black and I about had a heart attack because I didn't give her any snacks. Luckily, it was not a rat turd, but raisins she'd apparently hidden in some toys.

This morning he wasn't even up at the time that we usually leave and took 10 minutes just to put clothes on. He then got angry when I told him it was rude not to be on time, and insisted we would be there anyway. I said that was not the point, I had asked him to be ready by 8:30. When we got to uni he stormed off.
Tl;dr, my housemate who is lazy anyway keeps making us late for uni, doesn't like to contribute to petrol and expects to be given a lift.
Should I just leave this morning's situation and get over it or point out that I won't be giving him lifts any more if this continues?

What is your favourite song to listen to right now? I realise this question (and variations of it) has been asked a million times before, but I'm bored of all the music I have so I'm in dire need of some new tracks.
I passed the scene what I can only guess is a murder (like three police cars and four ambulances, and hysterical people outside) on the way home from school today. It would be the fourth reported homicide this month. Just last night someone on the news read a comment from the TV station's website, saying that they are "scared to live here anymore". All of this is really starting to freak me out.
What's something confusing/irritating that's happened to you recently?

I'm just wondering about this in terms of very general discussion on stereotypes and image. I have orange hair and am sometimes surprised at how some people respond to it. Some people assume I do it for attention (a lot of people cannot fathom any other reasons for having dyed hair) some people think it means that I'm dangerous or something (it seems to honestly scare some people, and I'm astounded at the idea of these peoples' mind sets). But then there's some people (usually middle-age to older people) that love the orange and are really enthusiastic about it.
My options at present are black and cream but please don't let that limit you.
I am interested in finding a second job. I have pink hair and a facial piercing, and finding a second job is not so important that I am interested in changing my hair or taking out my piercing. What do you guys think would be the best course of action?
A.) Find out place's dress codes prior to applying, and only apply at places whose dress codes do not mention unnatural hair/piercings, or explicitly say it's OK.
C.) Not research dress codes, and just alert the people hiring at the time of the "Would you please come in for an interview" phone call that I have unnatural hair, and ask if that goes against their dress code (and if so, say "thanks but no thanks.")
B.) Apply everywhere I'm interested and not research dress codes, and assume the associates/receptionists taking my application will note my hair. And in cases where resumes are e-mailed/faxed/mailed, just show up to interviews without any warning.

You're at a club. You happen to be sitting at a table, alone, when a large musclebound guy in a trenchcoat walks over to you. As you look up at him, he pulls out a gun and the laser targeting dot appars on your forehead. It looks like it's the end. Suddenly, before he can pull the trigger, some blonde guy in a trenchcoat unloads on him several times with a shotgun. The large fellow lies in a pile of broken glass. People are running and screaming. The blonde man quickly hops over to you. He kind of stinks like a homeless person. He says "Come with me if you want to live". Do you go with him?

Your boyfriend is trying to figure out what to get you for your birthday. His mom suggests jewelry, flowers, stuffed animals, and chocolate. Your boyfriend tells her you probably wouldn't like those. (Assume you're not overtly fond of any of them.) His mom responds with, "what kind of girl is she?"

Is there such thing this person I have in my head?
I just moved to college 2 months ago as a freshman and I have been having trouble adjusting.
The worst is this huge fear I've developed of eating alone in public. I even have trouble ordering food and taking it back to my room if I am alone. I have been skipping meals every now and then because my roommate isn't available and I'm too scared to go to the dining hall alone. I realize how stupid of a fear it is, but I am actually scared of people judging what I choose to eat or the fact that I am alone and I'm not sure how to break this fear.
Is this normal for new college students? Or is this some kind of social phobia developing?
Do you have any advice or should I just face my fears and force myself to go alone?

On my mom's side, my sister and I are the first to speak only English (Mom's family spoke Polish and Yiddish at home). On my dad's side, my great-grandparents were the last (Italian). I wish I had been raised bilingual.
