Have you ever used Mederma scar gel? How well did it work (please also describe the severity of the scar)? Any pros/cons?
what is currently stressing you out?
Google.com and Youtube.com are both giving me errors that say "404 Not Found nginx" when I try to access them. All other websites work fine. I'm on a laptop with wifi.
Also, my desktop turns off randomly or doesn't turn on when I push the power button, UNLESS I go around the desk, flip the on/off switch on the power bar, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again. It's a rather old power bar. I'm hoping that's all it is. We just got the desktop on February.

My 12 year old nephew told my sister that he wants to have sex.
Why are kids so eager to have sex? I never thought about sex with another person in elementary school and I'm only 21, so there's not a huge age gap between my me and my young relatives.
How old were you when you first realized that you actually thought about having sex with another person?
If you have a pet, what are its favorite toys to play with?
The kitty has a mouse he loves.
My dog has a piece of a stuffed raccoon's tail that he carries around. Or his duck that quacks.
If you have a pet that makes noises, how would you describe those noises?
My cat's meow sounds like he's an old man that smoked a pack a day. Other times he squeaks.
The dog howls really loud. He also makes grunting noises that sound like he's trying to form words.
Today when I was walking to work, I got whistled at by a guy in a van. Aside from the creep factor, not a big deal. But this was in rush hour traffic, so I would walk past his van, then the light would turn green, he'd pull up ahead of me, and I'd walk past him again when the light turned red. This happened several times and each time he would aggressively whistle, yell, or honk his horn. He was driving a work van with a local phone number printed on the side. Would it have been appropriate for me to call that number and complain?
DK/DC: How uncomfortable does catcalling and whistling make you feel? I can usually ignore it if it just happens once as someone's driving past, but if it's not done and over with, I feel really uncomfortable.
Have you used Facebook to locate an ex ?
Is your info public or private?
I found an ex on there yesterday and we talked on the phone last night. Turns out he was looking for me for a long time and just coulldn't find me because I have most of my info hidden.
In a long distance relationship, how does one know if their significant other is losing feelings if, you know, he/she isn't doing the obvious and just breaking things off?
I'm toying with the idea of buying a bike to ride to school instead of driving or taking the bus. I haven't used a bike since I was a wee little thing. After some looking around I'm finding city bikes as little as $80 and others for hundreds of dollars. I see people saying to avoid the cheap ones, but they don't say why. So TQC, what's so bad about them? If all I'm doing is going on paved roads, are they fine?
Do you have any tips for biking in cities with heavy traffic? Are there any rules on where I can park/leave the bike, like if I'm going to a store, if there's no designated area to put a bike?
If you bike regularly, have you ever been in an accident? Do you bike in the winter?
who do you think is cool?
I'm beginning to think I might actually have a cold. How do I treat this in pregnancy friendly ways? I have orange juice, and was already planning to make chicken soup for dinner. Any other suggestions?
I live 45 minutes away from DC in the state of VA.... we just had an earthquake that shook houses, appliances, etc. I never thought I would EVER see the day and I must say I was TERRIFIED!
What's the scariest natural disaster you've been through?
Who else just felt an earthquake?
I'm sick of Spotify and have a Last.fm account, but don't know how to use it so well.
Any tips on how to get the most out of Last.Fm?
ETA: how do I listen to just one artist?
Who else in the DC area is having trouble calling people? I have Verizon and I can't seem to call or text anyone. Did the earthquake knock down cell towers somehow?
What are some of the best book-to-movie adaptations you've seen?
What about some of the worst?
What are some weird things you have memorized (maybe not necessarily weird, but out of the ordinary)?
I've got my library card number memorized and I can recite the poem In Flanders Fields word for word.
what's the last book you read?
do you buy books online? if so, where do you buy them?
as I mentioned in a previous post, I currently have an iPod touch, but I don't have regular access to a computer that I can sync it with. I'm a podcast junkie, and so far managing podcasts on this thing by itself is not easy. there are two main problems. first, the Touch's native iTunes doesn't allow subscriptions (or if it does I haven't been able to figure out how). now, I've seen a handful of decent-looking podcast management apps that do subscriptions easily, but they all stream, which brings me to my second problem: I don't have wi-fi access 24/7. so can anyone recommend an app that 1) does subscriptions, and 2) downloads for offline listening? thank you
my bridesmaids dress is slightly snug. it zips up with no trouble(except for all the fucking taffeta) but it is an eensy bit tight. is it 'cause it's new or should i drop a couple pounds to make it fit better before the wedding(September 17th)?

I went to the cardiologist because I was having chest pains. My regular doctor along with the cardio said it could be one of a few things, including just stomach upset.
He wasn't sure if it was stomach problems but he gave me stomach medication to take all the time anyway.
Would you take it?
