Are there any men's or unisex deodorants that don't leave a residue after you shower?  I wear Sure aerosol deodorant and even after showering and scrubbing that area there is a weird sticky-ish residue.

Please, TQC, where can I watch episodes of The Soup online for free? They used to post a new episode every Saturday at Ohnotheydidnt, but I don't think they do anymore.

DK/DC: What's a petty annoyance you have right this moment? Mine is how long its taking me type this entry because I am forcing myself to type correctly so I can become quicker at it. Oddly enough I can type pretty damn fast my weird little three finger method. :/

Have you heard about this? Care to discuss?

In short, the FDA unveiled their new graphic warning labels for cigarette packages. Seems like by September 2012 all cigarette packaging and ads for tobacco products will carry an image, a short warning message, and a 1-800 number to call about getting help with quitting.

Anybody know of any non-religious online resources for people thinking about getting divorced?

I have a headache that goes from my scalp to my waist. I've already taken 660 mg of naproxen, 60 mg of pseudoephedrine, 10 mg of zyrtec and 2 pills of 5/325 Vicodin. Nothing has helped. This thing is going to kill me, y/y?

Right now, a popular social movement is the fight for LGBT rights and equality (and, of course, the backlash). In the future, what causes do you think will gain more momentum and widespread attention? What will future generations be fighting for?

I woke up today to shipment notifications for $30 worth of stuff that I bought on Amazon.com at 3 in the morning. I don't remember ordering any of it. It's all stuff I want anyway, so I'm not really super bothered but I'm just like "Uh...I would have preferred to not spend that money right now" I wasn't drunk or anything. I think maybe I was just super tired.

When was the last time you didn't remember doing something? Were you drunk/high/whatever? What's the craziest thing you can't remember?

eta: Is my icon moving? It's not moving for me but I'm not gonna bother re-uploading it or anything if it's just another LJ problem. P.S. WHY IS LJ HAVING SO MANY PROBLEMS?!

What is amusing you today?

Im a nanny and today I had to bring the kids (1 1/2 years and a 4 month old) over to my place for a bit and the cats are very offended, the 1 year old is fascinated with them and very irritated that they keep running from him.

They are so jealous, its going to be funny when we bring our baby home in October.


Does anyone have a 16.4 laptop?
Or a Sony Vaoi?

Sorry if this was already asked but is anybody having trouble logging on to LJ?    I type my username and password, hit enter and then the screen refreshes as if I had done nothing at all and forces me to start over and type them both again before it will log on.  

Come on LJ!
I swear there is a new problem every week!

 Sorry, I know I can find this on Google, but my head is pounding and I can't get myself to read through articles to find the answer at the moment.

I created an action in Photoshop CS5 that is really just playing ten other actions.  I created it to batch edit to help speed up my workflow (editing about 600 photographs a day gets tedious when you're by yourself).  Only, when I run it, it stops half way through for a "The command "Delete" is not currently available." error.

All I would like to do is include the "Continue" option, so I don't have to sit around and click it 300 times while it's running the batch.  Is this possible? How do I do it?  It seems to  not include that action while I'm recording it.

If you had to spend $300 at Stop & Shop(or some other grocery store that you don't particularly like) by July 7th, what would you buy? Would you just do the majority of your grocery shopping there until July 7th? Would you go there for more expensive things that you don't usually buy? Would you stock up on non-perishables?

What is your favorite grocery store? least favorite?

I love Wegmans. Acme is fucking awful and I haven't been there in years.

My partner and I are looking to relocate, and both of us are pretty excited about the idea of Memphis, Tennessee.

There's a lot of pros that we can see, but we don't really know the area.

We were hoping to get in contact with some people before we make a decision, just to see what they think of the city.

So some questions!

What are some areas to avoid in Memphis?

I'm seeing a lot of really cheap home prices, but am worried about flooding. What are the areas to avoid in terms of flooding? Does this trend change, or does it pretty much flood in the same areas when it floods?

Any other tips, tricks, opinions, for me TQC?

Android phone users, do you use an outside app for your text messages? The one the phone comes with is so ugly.

TextPlus Gold is not liking me at all. I downloaded it when it was free on Amazon so whatever.

can you get kids to listen to you without raising your voice or yelling? how?

for those with kids-are you raising them any differently than how you were brought up? and/or does anyone here come from a really harsh upbringing and treat their own kids a lot nicer? if so, how did you get past the tendency to pass it on to them?

i dont have kids, btw. just curiosity.

I'm gonna feel really dumb but I just can't think right now.

I'm writing a paper for my classic liturature as film class, and I'm trying to think of another way to say "source text," instead of just saying "source text" or "in Austen's novel."

I feel like I'm repeating myself a lot, but I find it hard to say "in the original" or similar because the essay is comparing two different film adaptations and that wording almost always ends up sounding like I'm referring to the "original" film adaptation, not the original story.
