I need a good book. Just finished the hunger games trilogy; anything similar or far better?

Is there a way to make youtoube allow a longer-than-10-min video?

Would you be offended if your friends teased you by saying you remind them of someone most people find unpleasant?

One of my friends thinks it is hilarious to call me Paula Poundstone because of an unfortunate haircut and work uniform I used to have.

Another says I dress like Roseanne (who I like, but whatever)

Has this ever happened to you?
Who have you been compared to unflatteringly?

Can anyone tell me how to add sequential page numbers to a Microsoft Works Word Processor document, preferably numbers in the lower right hand corner of every page?

Clicking on Page Numbers under the Insert tab is just giving me numbers right in the centre top of every page, which is really fucking with my formatting (stage play script).

I feel like this is something basic I should be able to figure out, but I'll admit, it's a struggle for me right now. Trying to put them in by hand in the footer isn't working, either. Whatever number I enter for any page gets put on every page.

I'm just full of computing fail tonight.

I have a really nice moleskin notebook and not a lot to do with it. I'm not particularly artistic, and would like to put my thoughts/words in it, but would worry about it being found.

Any ideas for things to do with this notebook?

Should I work as a CNA while going to school for a bachelor's in Biology? I'm not sure what I want to do, I just know its something in the healthcare field.

My current job is $8/hr

CNAs pay $9-14/hr

CNAs do the dirty work, and I'm not sure if I could handle that.

I need a way to make more money than I'm making now, and it would be good experience for me.

Any suggestions? Are there any other alternative jobs?

Where the heck are my headphones? I want to rock out while cleaning my room but everyone else is asleep. ETA: They were in my car. I finally found a flashlight so I could go outside and I almost pissed myself when I spooked a herd of deer and they ran just a few feet from me.  The creepy wind and dog howls didn't help my paranoia, but at least now I have my headphones.

What are some good podcasts to listen to? I like funny stuff.

Will you show me pictures of your bedroom?

You are a recent college graduate and are unable to find gainful employment. You move back home temporarily but hope to move in with your SO in the near future.

You apply for a (shitty, dead-end) job, and during the interview, the manager tells you that s/he's not looking for "someone who will work there for a few months and then quit." You have every intention to work there for the foreseeable future. However, about a month into the job, you are presented with an opportunity to move out much earlier than you'd anticipated. You intend to take advantage of this opportunity and must quit your job.

How would you approach your manager with this news? Or, rather, am I a huge asshole for inadvertently going against his wishes?

Were you gullible as a child?
What are some things you believed?
What are some stories your parents told you when they cbf'd explaining complex workings of the world? Or did they just enjoy BS'ing you?

I used to think there were some things that only girls knew like a secret society and boys could never find out. And sprinkles were coloured as you shook them from the jar by a tiny man with a paintbrush (thanks mum). And the fact I looked like my dad, when I came from mum's "tummy", was an act of ~magic~.

Oh and also the car would only start if everyone had their seatbelt on.

My apartment is having the owner/property manager do inspections on, like, 75% of all the apartments in my complex tomorrow.
What do these inspections entail, especially if it's on such a large scale?
Anyone else get super paranoid and anxious regarding inspections?  I do, every time.
I should leave out my porn and toy collection, y/y?
Are they, like, going to go through my closets and stuff??

Have you ever been quoted in a newspaper? What was the story about? The one time in my life I was quoted in a newspaper was when our street was evacuated because of a gas line rupture and I got our neighbor's dog out of their backyard and took him with us because they were at work. The reporters interviewed me about the evacuation and the only part of the interview they used in the story was when I said "We couldn't leave without Daisy." Wish I said something more profound but oh well.

What is a ISS Staff position in a grade school? Is this a normal position offered in a school? I'm asking because I suspect it might be a made up position to give a big name in town's idiot kid a job watching kids in detention and playing solitaire on the computer.

Will you share your good news?

I has a job i is so excite rn. I've seriously been doing a dance in my chair since I got the phone call.

Will you share with us the ways you've destroyed a cell phone?

I threw one phone at the wall once because I got mad. My brother got into a hot tub with his phone in his pocket. And Friday I accidentally dropped a phone in a cup of water and didn't realize it. Luckily, it seems to have come out of the encounter unscathed after drying over the weekend.

What's your favourite way to celebrate?

Anyone here ever had a problem logging in to Flickr, and had to send an e-mail asking them for help? Did they EVER get back to you and help you?

I sent a help request last night and it's already 4pm and they still haven't responded. Are they ignoring me? :*( What's going to happen to all my family pictures? :*(

EDIT: They FINALLY sent me e-mail with a phone number to call, and on the phone they fixed it for me. :)

Is there a book that everybody loves (raves about, best seller, popular, etc. etc.) but you just couldn't get into?

I tried reading the Time Traveler's Wife and just couldn't finish it. It got me bored, I don't know why. I might pick it up again soon, though.

Oh, yeah. I also couldn't get into Nicholas Sparks' or Danielle Steel's books. I read The Notebook and A Walk To Remember and liked the movies better (which is rare for me).

Is it actually possible to be addicted to a certain food?

I think I am actually addicted to super spicy hummus with multigrain pita chips. When I first discovered it two years ago I think something clicked. I could not stop eating it. I would buy at least one tub a week, and I had to forcibly minimize it to that. Sometimes I can forget about it for a whole week, but when I start thinking about it again I can't help but buy it. When I have it at my house I can't stop thinking about it on the way home. I eat it even when I'm nauseous or stuffed. I just ate the rest of my tub. Eating hummus is seriously one of the best feelings in the world for me.

Am I actually addicted?
Is there any way to cure it ... um, without having to give it up?

What are some good ways to make some extra money? I was debating whether to apply for a retail job but I won't really be able to work all of next month so I don't think that would work out well. Are there any online sites that hire Canadians, lol?

What alternatives can be used instead of PayPal (with whom I've had the absolute worst experience dealing with ever in my life)? Their "payment holds policy" is complete and utter bullshit, but I digress.

Alternatives to PayPal (that are actually easy to work with and trustworthy)?

How do you set up your Ebay account to accept only money orders/cashier's checks?

P.S. PayPal sucks. Avoid them at all costs!

Does anyone have a good resource for why drug testing those who receive public assistance (Medicaid, food stamps, housing, etc) is a phenomenally stupid idea?  I feel like someone with a brain as outlined it somewhere on the internet (a blog, an article at huffpo, something).  I'm kind of busy and don't have time to look, but about 10 people on my facebook feed have answered that stupid "Should you have to pass a drug test to get welfare?" poll and I just want to just post the article and leave it at that.

Advice Requested

So, I've been seeing this guy for about a month now (read: hanging out [seeing shows, watching movies, talking, etc.] and having sex). We've known each other for years -- we go to the same university -- and have always clicked, but it's only recently that we've been spending a lot of time together. I really like him and I know he's really into me as well. I think about him a lot and often want to contact him, but I don't want to seem clingy -- but at the same time, I don't want him to think I'm uninterested.

Hence my question: how often is it appropriate to contact someone (via text, FB, phone call, etc.) when you're seeing them very casually? Everyday, every couple days, only on the weekends...?

Your $0.02 would be very appreciated! Thanks in advance.

It is Day One of a month long game of somewhat extreme tag called Humans vs Zombies, or HvZ for short. Essentially, students on a campus sign up to participate in a sort of war; one person is chosen to be the Original Zombie, who begins to infect everyone, and the humans try to survive the month while the zombies try not to starve. You can learn more here.

My side, the Humans, are already down 9/45 (roughly). What are my personal chances for survival?

Anyone here have any idea what's wrong with my truck? My check engine light came on a couple days ago, and since, my coolant reservoir has gone completely empty, however, me and a couple other friends who have been looking can't find a single leak. Also, when I've been driving, the car accelerates really jerkily, for lack of a better way to put it, and whenever I drive with the engine at around 2000 RPM, it vibrates really harshly, especially when I'm in third gear. I wanna see if what's wrong is something I can fix myself, but I'm stumped as to what's wrong. I drive a Ranger with the 4.0 V6 if that matters.

Crochet?

I'm trying to teach myself how to crochet using youtube videos, but I'm pretty sure nothing I am doing right now is actually crochet. This scarf is turning to to some terrible yarn abortion.

Have you taught yourself how to do anything?

we already don't spend as much time together as we used to. and it seems like every time he's online he's streaming so I can't do anything with him. and now he's started to go to bed at midnight so that's even less time.
