I'm writing a play right now, and I need to know for the purposes of realistic human behavior, if you were sick and coughing, would you accept a cough drop offered you by a relative stranger, say a customer or someone like that?
DK/DC: what are the best/worst pick up lines you've heard?
Last night some 2nd year asked me how much I'd pay him to take off his shirt and dance for me. I said $2. Then he took off his shirt and danced. Later I tracked him down and gave his a toonie (that's a $2 dollar coin for you non-Canadians)
So, last night I hung out with my boyfriend and his friends. He's 22 about to be 23, and I am 24. His friends are all between 18-20, mostly 18. I have some young friends, but I felt right a vibe almost immediately that his friends were on the immature side. For example: One referred to something as "gay" and another came up to us, punched him in the shoulder and shouted "Thanks for fucking giving me a formal introduction jerk!" (She was referring to me). I attempted to start a conversation with his best friend, asking him how he was and telling him about my day (how it had been my best friend's daughter's 1st birthday and how I was busy all day helping her). When I asked my boyfriend later on why I got no response from him, he replies "He's not the one to talk about serious stuff with."
I think age can be a factor in a friendship, but I think maturity level is more important. I can definitely befriend someone years younger than me, but I'd think being able to carry a simple conversation should be a necessity. Am I wrong for thinking this way? Or am I being too judgmental? Does age and maturity level matter when it comes to forming friendships for you?
So I've tried googling, searching facebook discussions, and facebook help. No luck. It seems they're tinkering a hell of a lot and such, but nobody seems to have my problem.(And i can't seem to figure out how to post a question, particularly where i'd get a reliable response). So I figured i'd ask, anyone else not able to use various buttons on facebook? I can't use my friend request, private message, or status update buttons. They just become highlighted like this:
Also I seem to be unable to post any pictures to my wall, that link doesn't respond either.
Anyone else? Any fixes or known reason for the problem(s)?
So, I just moved into an apartment with a broken dryer, which the landlord won't fix. I, being awesome, learned how to change the broken drum belt and got it working yesterday!!! ... Only to come back an hour later and see that it was broken again! Apparently the dryer chewed up the new belt IMMEDIATELY, and I had to buy another replacement.
My questions are: 1) WTF? 2) Why would my dryer be chewing up belts? Is it more likely that I put it on wrong, or that the entire machine (which is not mine, thus I bear no responsibility for its condition) is fucked forever? Should I even try putting on the second new belt? If so, what should I do differently? 3) Why does God hate me?
I found a recipe for white chocolate brownies online, tried it out, and loved them.
The problem is that the sides of the brownies all around where they touched the pan were slightly burned. Not crispy or anything, just somewhat dark with a faint "burn" taste.
I had followed the recipe to a T with only one problem: The recipe called for a 9" baking pan but we only have 8" ones. At someone's recommendation I turned down the heat (by 25 degrees, I think?) and let it bake just until poking it with a toothpick came out clean.
Could anyone help me get these brownies just right? Or, alternatively, do you happen to know a good white chocolate brownie recipe that comes out perfect (for 8" pan)?
I want to bake them again tomorrow but I don't know a thing about baking and I'd like the edges to not be so overcooked like they were last time. I tried looking for a 9" pan, thinking that might be the problem, but I can't find one in a physical store and like I said I'd like to do these tomorrow.
So I just joined my local roller derby team, and I'm trying to come up with a name. I'd like it to Harry Potter themed as much as possible. I've been brainstorming for weeks, and I've got nothing. It's much more difficult than I thought it'd be!
Can you guys think of anything awesome and creative? Here is a list of all the registered roller derby names for reference.
Say a cashier gives you the wrong change from a 100.00 bill, the mistake is in your favor and you don't realize he gave you too much back until after you're home.
Do you go back and tell him what happened and return the money ? or do you keep your mouth shut and say oh well he should have been more careful?
I was at the store tonight and the cashier gave me 80.00 too much when he handed me my change. He was talking to some friends and not paying attention and i didn't realize it until I got home and counted my money.
I was using my TV to watch a movie through the PC, so I was messing around with the dual screen stuff. Sometimes the window appearance changes but it usually goes back. This time it didn't, even after I went to back to one screen.
You work in a restaurant/bakery/deli/somewhere where you can sample food. You have a customer who samples no less than ten items. At the same time, a pretty good-sized line of customers forms, and you're the only one working at the time. You eventually say something to the extent of: "ma'am/sir, I'm sorry, but I'm not usually allowed to give out so many samples." (Suspension of disbelief if you would never respond like that, please?)
The customer responds with, "I have never been so insulted in my life." S/he then starts crying and demands that someone else help him/her.
