if i am supposed to go tanning, will you give me some advice? i've only ever gone once before, like, 5 years ago and i don't remember anything that i'm supposed to do (outside of wearing those goggles and making sure to wipe all your sweat off the bed before you leave the room).
also, i bought a bathing suit top with the hopes that i'd find a perfect pair of bottoms to go with it. i'm not very fashionable, so i'm not sure what i should be looking for. the bathing suit top i have is a teal colored triangle top with big white flowers and i'm hoping to find a pair of boy short bottoms to match. should the bottoms be teal, or is this the kind of thing that doesn't really matter? i'd like this pair of bottoms to be: comfortable, inexpensive and looking like it's supposed to go with the top. am i worrying more about this than i should be?

I dreamt last night that Rebecca Black won a Grammy for "Friday." I should probably get off the
(also meaning you may not have been aware of your dealbreakers before but this relationship added them to/started your list)
My last [short lived 2.5 month] relationship made me see I can't date boys who cry more than I do, who weren't aware they had smegma problems, sweat just by sitting there and were borderline creepy with compliments and affection.
Snow White and Cinderella both wear wooden shoes in the beginning of the movies while they are doing their chores.

Should the US government release photos of OBL's corpse as proof that he is in fact dead or not? Why?
Keep in mind that they do have DNA that they say is a perfect match. Do you think that is acceptable as proof?

How much would you tip a tattoo artist for a relatively small, simple tattoo?
I'm getting one in a few hours and I don't want to be a cheapskate!
I would pay off student loans, buy a house and give money to family that needs it.
(with lots of shopping to buy things I don't need in between, of course)
I just saw on the news a woman who crossed a flooded highway and the water was like, raging. Comon now, lady!
Ladies, do you cry more or less than the average woman? How often do you cry a month, on average?
Gents, do you cry more or less than the average man? How often do you cry a month, on average?
Problem: It's an expensive habit to buy it daily. Even if I did buy a coffee machine, I don't have time to brew in the morning before work.
What can be done here?!
More details: I've considered teaching English, but I don't know too much about my options. I know about TEFL but I don't know exactly how it works. I've also considered going to grad school in Europe, but don't know exactly where, and I would like to save up some money (working for a few years) before doing that so I don't have to take out too many loans. I speak English and French and some Italian. In terms of actually expatriating, I don't know how to go about it since it's so difficult. Marriage has definitely crossed my mind, and while I wouldn't use it as a goal, I certainly wouldn't be opposed to meeting someone while studying/teaching abroad. I'm pretty smart and have a degree in architecture, but I wouldn't say my skills are good enough that I'd be able to get a visa that way. I've also considered getting a job with a large US-based firm with offices abroad and trying to get transferred.
Tips? Successful immigration stories? I don't really care where in Europe, I just want my EU citizenship. Prefer Finland, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands, Switzerland or maybe the UK.
ETA: I'm American.
My co-worker and I went to Popeyes for lunch and there was this guy waiting in line who bitched and complained about someone else getting their fries before he got his chicken. Then he takes the chicken and sits down only to return like .5 seconds after demanding a refund. I was waiting for him to start making a scene so that I could tell him to stfu!
I am trying to learn Japanese but it is very difficult to do by myself.
I know SOMEONE has written at least one article on the topic. And I am wracking my brain how to find it.
(Have also searched FT, WSJ, AT, and China Daily.)
Help think outside the box!
How is your mood right now?
This has happened to a friend of mine a handful of times, sometimes 2-3 times in one night. She doesn't seem too bothered by it, but I feel like I'd be creeped out.

I am looking at an apartment this Friday at 3 pm. Assuming everything is to my liking, will I be offered the apartment right afterward? Will I more than likely be the only one looking at it? I don't want to like, have to compete with other people for it. :\ lol
To have the apartment in my name, I need to pay a double deposit, plus the first month's rent and the first month's pet deposit. That will be a total of $1040. Are there any other little fees I need to consider? Will they charge me a rental application fee even if I haven't filled out an app? Will I have to fill out an app?
Any other details you would like to give me about apartments would be wonderful.
A few years ago I saw a youtube video about cordyceps fungi. They're the ones that infect insects and take over their brain, making them climb to a high point and die, after which the fungus can distribute spores. Recent articles about cordyceps fungi tend to say they turn the insects into "zombies". Kinda interesting, if a bit horrifying.
So when I first learned about cordyceps, I looked up different bugs that have been infected by it and found a picture and a wiki page that came with it:
I HAVE EATEN THESE THINGS. When I was a kid, my grandmother used to make me soups that were supposed to be really healthy, and these were a prime ingredient in one. I liked them. They were crunchy. She told me it was a fungus like a mushroom, even though it looked like a caterpillar. We called them "chong" anyway (a Chinese word meaning "bug" or "worm.")
I guess she was telling the truth. I'm not really grossed out by it really, but it weirded me out a lot to realize that I basically ate a ton of zombified larva when I was a kid.
DK/DC: What's your current favorite snack food? I've recently discovered a biltong shop in town and oh my god chili chutney biltong, stuff is delicious!
Tell me more about your fitness!
For those who enjoy hiking or camping:
Are your standards for what you will eat radically different when you're in the field? Like, will you eat food that obviously has dirt on it, from dirty dishes, with dirty hands? Do you stay that way for a while when you come back to civilization?
I'm bored at work with another half hour to go before I go home. What should I do to kill time until then?
And if you're too private for that: Do you have a photo album for something besides family?
I was 12.
I have a photo album for the Romanovs, the former royal family of Russia. I've collected hundreds of photos from 1895-1918.
I just think it's so cliché and vague and it never really means the same thing every time.
I really want to get an octopus tattoo (I've been wanting to get one for years) and I really want it to me on the front of my shoulder. But I'm worried that...I dunno, I'll get sick of seeing it there or something.
Hooray, answer found! Keeping on the same topic, what did you major in? And where did you go?
If that question is really dumb and there is a really obvious answer that will be the first reply posted, then where are you, and what colour are your bedcroom walls?

How was your dinner?
tell me about a really stupid decision you made that felt like a good idea at the time?
TQC, I am really awful at beginning to write essays and my head feels like it is swarming with too much information and I don't know where to start D:
Do you have any tips/techniques you could give me that you use when you have to write one? Once I'm started I will be fine but at the moment just ughh. I have to do a presentation about my essay for tomorrow, the actual essay isn't due for another 2 weeks.
I'm trying to study art movements but they seem so obscure to me and dadaism/avant garde/everything else just melts into one big mindfuck. I have always had this problem since high school.
So my question is... what have you recently rediscovered/remembered?
If it's nothing, then I'm going to the pub. Care to join me? And what would you like?
how are we alike? which of these things that make my eyes roll make your eyes roll too?

dk/dc - What was the yummiest thing you ate today?
i have tried:
"i'm bringing my own lunch, but thanks"
"i'm not really much of a seafood/banana bread/whatever person, but thanks"
"you really don't have to do that but i appreciate it"
"i'm not hungry"
but then her feelings get hurt and then i eat it but i have to run to the bathroom later that day.

In academic writing, can I use a source in a foreign language? I'm writing a paper (in English) about the modernity of the Mexican Revolution and have a book in Spanish I'd like to cite. Can I use quotes from it translated by myself into English?

2. Could you ever be in a long-distance relationship for an extended period of time*?
3. For those of you who don't live with your partners: how often do you see one another?
4. What is your "type"?

What is the accent in Act One of this episode of This American Life? It starts about four and a half minutes in. The speaker, Jon Ronson, grew up in Cardiff but I'm wondering if it's a Cardiff accent, a more general Welsh accent, or something else entirely.
how did you fix it?
Like, TV shows that are originally from X country and are remade by Y country?
Or old films turned into modern day takes?
