I'm Scottish (and very proud of it) and anytime I hear bagpipes or hear any 'Scottish music' (currently listening to Runrig - Loch Lomond)  I get goosebumps like mad. Does this happen to you when you hear certain things? Why do you think it happens?

And if similar things happen to you, who and why?

Do you like Scotland? :)

What's your favorite/a good ab workout? I've been working out regularly for the past month and I'd like to add abs into my workout, but I don't know what exercises to do. Also, any strength exercises I can do to help with posture?

Do you prefer to work out in the mornings, afternoons, nighttime, or not at all?
I work out in the mornings. During the school year I prefer to work out not at all =\

So...I have a dilemma.
I want to train/show in two completely different horse classes.

English:


Western:


I’ve trained for both, but never at the same time. I'm showing western for sure, but can't decide if I should double train for English as well this time.
They both have their pros and cons.


Which do you like better?

TQC, want to tell me about the last really amazing day you had?

Yesterday was insanely good for me. I found my wallet, figured out that my FWB wants to be my boyfriend, had mindblowing sex with him, cooked a great dinner for him, my dad and me, and my dad brought me three of my favorite beers and two nips of my favorite liquor.

At a party I attended last night, a topic of conversation came up about whether "Made In China" stickers are made in China and, if so, would they necessarily be labeled with their own 'Made In China' sticker. Would they?

I just received an email from someone telling me they want to set up a job interview, but when I read it, something didn't sit right with me.

It said, "Hello, I will be calling you to set an appointment for your interview. Please take a few minutes to complete the following quiz, Here. Don't worry about being billed, this is setup as part of our interview process with a partner company.
 
Once you've completed the quiz you'll receive your score and time. Please note these so we can discuss this during the interview. This quiz will not effect your eligibility for the position - just something to discuss while I get to know you.
 
Are you available tomorrow after 10am?
 
Have a great day,
(her name)"

She doesn't say a business name and doesn't leave a phone number which is odd enough, but a legit employer would not ask someone to take a little IQ quiz online, would they?  I took the quiz out of curiosity, but at the end, it asks for your cell phone number.  I didn't give it out though, I think it's a scam.

Am I right to be suspicious about it?

For those who have moved a long(er) distance:

How did you end up finding a place to live?

We pretty much have to move by the 27th and we went and found an apartment we really liked but the office was closed on the weekends so I am wondering if we can sign a lease by fax?

So I'm back in my hometown til November after four years of college and I know NO ONE. Everyone I knew has moved away or become drug addicts and all my coworkers are older than me. I love my coworkers, don't get me wrong, but I could really use someone to just chill with.

THEN.

I *thought* I made a friend. He was very flirtatious when I met him and immediately added me on facebook. We talked for four days straight, including me driving him home at one point. He said he was okay with us just being friends because I'm in a relationship (after he thoroughly tested boundaries by trying to sext me one night), but now he's *poof* gone. I've sent him one text and one reply to an fb message thread we had going, but no answer. It's been like a week.

He didn't really want a friend, just my body, y/y?

...:(

Do you have a DVR you really like? I'm looking into them for my mother who wants to give up the TiVo for something without a subscription (which she stopped a while ago, so since then it's been useful for streaming netflix but only holds ~30mins of recording). If yours is user-friendly and was $100-$150 (or less!), you should tell me!

Also, does anyone know any good sites for electronics reviews besides Consumer Reports and Amazon?

Ever have a creepy hotel experience?

One night in West Virginia, my mother, my sister, my grandma, my great aunt, and myself were staying in this very dirty little motel. We had one of those joining doors, and we kept hearing the other door opening and someone was banging on it. What's more, they never uttered a sound. My grandma, who panics and is anxious over small things bad enough, was ready to dial 911. Finally we called the front office and they just moved us to another room. Why they didn't just yell at the people next door, I'll never know.

My aunt told me this one. She once stayed in a crappy motel in New Jersey, and she kept having someone pound on the front door screaming that he wanted his "mother fucking coke!" She called the front desk, and they called the cops, but the guy ran off and wasn't caught.

About 4 years ago, I did something really, really mean to someone. I  want to apologize because I think they deserve the apology. However, it was an ex-boyfriend, and he's married now (has been for about 2 years, we've always been friends on FB, but have not spoken). I also am in a relationship, if it matters.

I don't want to cause any type of problems by sending him a message or anything, but I do think it's necessary to apologize. I would send a brief message and just say sorry, cause it was honestly quite fucked up.

ShouId I send him a message?
