This may be tmi, but--- After my SO and I finished having sex, we had talked about him buying condoms, to which he replied, "That's okay, if you get pregnant, I'll just pay for you to have a little procedure done."

I, myself, am completely pro-choice, however, there would be VERY little situations in which I would personally have an abortion. In fact, I am kind of offended that this is how he chose to "resolve" the issue.

I've tried pushing him into buying condoms before but he kind of just pushes the issue aside. I'd go buy them myself, but Idk what kind he wants nor the financial ability to do so.

Should I just be all, "No more for you" until he gets some?

And how would you feel about your SO saying something among those lines in order to solve the pregnant issue?

My friend just post this FB status: "1 out of 3 women in the military is raped, what is our world coming too?" (her grammar, not mine).

This sounds unlikely to me, but before I decided that it was total bullshit I just wanted to know, has anyone seen this statistic before, and do you know where it's coming from? Any ideas as to where she might have heard this? I Googled it, but couldn't really find a definite answer.

Creepy Pasta Children

Have you ever watched Psychic Kids on the BIO channel?

Do you or anyone you know have a child or adult friend that is psychic or a medium?

I come from a family with psychic or sensitive capabilities and its not unusual for my aunt in Texas (we live in Mass) to have premonitions or dreams that are the same that myself or mother have within the same time period.

Can this become a creepy pasta post?!

I've had a cartilage piercing in my right ear for about eight years now, and I don't think this has happened before. A few days ago, my earring started to bother me so I took it out. Now there's a sort of tiny white bubble on the back of my ear where the hole is, almost like a blister. It doesn't really hurt or itch and it's not leaking or anything, it's just kind of there.

Has anyone had something like this on a piercing before? Could it be infected? Should I be worried about putting an earring back in? Most of the earrings I wear in this particular hole are pretty cheap Claire's earrings, if that makes a difference.

What did you dream about last night? Do you remember whether or not it was in color?

I dreamt about grizzly bears and gnarly looking, large werewolves attacking my campus while i was having lunch in the cafeteria with friends and & bf. but it was as non-chalant as a grizzy bear/werewolf attack can get...

was late to some science class, had to borrow lebron james' book but ended up with his brown cardigan instead. and it was rather small and feminine.

class was over , accidentally took lebron james' brown cardigan and looked all over the place for him, but ended up dog walking a basset hound.

traveled to some relative's place for supper via toy train. it was like riding on an oversized tire swing. found out there was a gap in between the train tracks and my step-dad knew about it and told us his solution was to pile a bunch of spaghetti, squash, and onions in the gap. my younger relative did not like the idea of having spaghetti, squash, and onion for supper, so he shot my step-dad in the chest. right in the heart. 

the end.

Surprise!baby

Think back to when you lost your virginity. If you or your partner had fallen pregnant and kept it, how old would that child be now? Does your imaginary baby's age freak you out? Do you feel as if you're old/responsible enough to care for that child?

If you got up to same sex shennanigans, let's just pretend that one of you is magically pregnant regardless of whether you've got the equiptment or not. Surprise!babies for ERRYONE!

My government would lie through their eye teeth about something like this.  What would yours do?

Huh, I copied and pasted directly from my screen where it is running just fine, but when I hit the link it told me 404 not found too.  When I googled jibtv.com, it took me a couple of clicks and there it was.  I have no idea why the address in my browser isn't accurate, because I'm definitely watching it.

I threw a birthday party for myself and my best friend last night. And I drank quite a bit! Even though I've been up a few hours, my stomach is not so happy. I feel like I should try to eat something to soak up the angry in there. But I am pitiful and alone because my husband is at work and have to drag myself to make it.

Should I go with a little cheap frozen pepperoni pizza or some picante chicken ramen? I'm not sure which would go better, but I'm thinking maybe the pizza since tossing noodles is always the worst thing ever...

Have you ever had a hotdog with chili and slaw? The best way to eat a hotdog is with chili, slaw, and raw onions. I think this is a West Virginian preference.

PPPUUUPPPPPPPPIIIESSS!

So, today my boyfriend and I decided it's time for a dog. We've talked about it for years, and today was the first day that we've both agreed on everything and we're ready to include one in our home.

I'm leaning towards black lab mixes, but I guess it doesn't matter in the end (we're really hoping for this unbearably cute black lab/golden retriever puppy that needs to be rescued).


In your experience, what kind of dog would you recommend? We want a medium/larger but not huge dog that we can take to the beach and to the woods, and play fetch and go on doggy play dates with our friends' dog. There's a few super cute shepard mixes, do they like the water?

Let's say you're really obsessed about something. A tv show or a comic etc. Your best friend and/or SO (whomever you spend time with the most) also enjoys this thing with you, but aren't as obsessed as you. Obviously you talk about it non-stop with them. One day your bff/SO tells you that they're really not that interested, and that they only acted as though they were was because they know you love it so much, but you've already grown into the habit of talking to them. Would you feel hurt that they didn't tell you earlier, or would you feel like it was a sweet notion that they stuck with it for so long?

if you keep caged pets, do you ever feel like a jerk? i'm watching this show about people who keep snakes and the poor little guys just look so sad laying there in their glass case of emotion. i can understand crating a dog or w/e when you're not home, but to keep an animal in a cage practically 24/7 seems inhumane.

They introduce these characters and I'm like "oh god I am that person! I feel so bad for them!" and then suddenly "Oh woops they're a murderer!" and instead we're supposed to feel bad for the horrible bullies whose friend was killed.

There's a historic hotel in my city which is closing soon. As much character and history the place had, it wasn't kept up very well, but I do feel very sorry for the employees. However, in this thread about it on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/topic/las-vegas-sahara-closing-may-16, someone comes in and says "+100 on the Implosion and starting over.....with anything. Vegas is known for reinventing itself and innovating. We must continue what we do well. The loss of jobs does suck, but c'est la vie.....it happens"

Kind of a slow night tonight! What are y'all up to, what's on your agenda for this evening?

I have to, in no particular order, clean my kitchen, do a bunch of laundry and take a shower. I would like to also watch a movie (it will probably end up being Fast Times at Ridgemont High because I have had a strange urge to watch it lately), and if I feel like it I should probably do a stupid spreadsheet for work that's due tomorrow.

I should do these things while drinking milk + kahlua, right?

ETA: Ummmm didn't realize this question was literally just asked, in the post before mine. Oops.

Will you tell me about (or at least the name of) one of the most awesomely bad movies you've seen?

One of my favorites is Thankskilling. LOLS FOREVER


ETA 2: Omg you guys, if you haven't ever had Kahlua + milk, DO IT. It tastes like one of those Starbucks bottled "frapuccinos" (which we all know isn't a real frap, but it's not bad for what it is).

We all, more or less, believe computers and technology would be boasted by demons, not angels. I understand that religion doesn't guide everyone, or more simply, a lot of people don't give a crap but... if we believe these things aren't ultimately good... why are we still using them?

Psychotropics

Any TCQers know much about psychotropic drugs, in particular anti depressants?
So I've been on anti depressants for 7 years and it's went as follows; flouxetine (Prozac), sertraline (zoloft), amitriptiline (elavil), mirtazapine (remeron) and now venlafaxine (efexor). What would you say would be the next med to try? My pdoc wants me to try paroxatine (paxil) but I've heard that can cause major weight gain so I'm not sure.

Another question; I'm in the UK, how likely are they to prescribe buproprian (wellbutrin)?  Especially since Ive been diagnosed with EDNOS. 

Thanks :)
