Has anyone here read anything by Immanuel Kant? If yes, which of his works is easiest to understand?
We talked about him in college on Tuesday and I am intrigued but I'm afraid I'll be too "stupid" D:
(for reference, I have been reading "The Second Sex" for about two years and I'm sure it's easy compared to Kant's works!)
For the guys: how important is it to you that the girl you're seeing is well-dressed/well-groomed, etc? For the girls: how important do you think these things are to guys?
How often do you get 8 solid hours of sleep in a night? How many hours do you think you really need? I usually sleep 6-7 hours, and this is fine, but I'd like more.
Movie day! We always go see a movie on the day after Thanksgiving. Today Dad and I are seeing Tower Heist. Are you going to the movies today, TQC? What are you going to see?
Are you excited for Oscar movie season coming up in a few weeks? I am.
Where do you stand on the idea of giving gift certificates/gift cards/money to people in lieu of regular presents?
If someone gave you a gift card/gift certificate/money instead of a present, would you be disappointed?
Have you ever received any gift cards or certificates for a place you would never use?
Do you ever feel like an asshole for returning things that people buy you?
Its 10.30 - by the time I get dressed and have breakfast, it will be 11. is there any point in going shopping? or, seeing as a bunch of places have 2 day/weekend sales, should I just wait until tomorrow, when it will hopefully be less crazy?
Last night I went to Wal-Mart's early Black Friday sale in an attempt to get a couple of the $2.84 kitchen items my mom really wanted and a video game for my brother who was working at the time. The staff brought out a pallet of stand mixers and about thirty people crowded around them and started tearing into the shrink wrap. There was a woman stuck behind another woman who couldn't reach over her to get one, so she pulled down the pants of the woman in front of her. Of course the pantsed woman freaked out and scampered away, so the one who did it could get up to the front and get her stand mixer.
What is the most ridiculous and capitalistic display of asshattery you have ever personally witnessed?
amazon.com tells me that I need to "add $0.36 of eligible items to your order to qualify for FREE Super Saver Shipping".
What should I buy? srs/nonsrs answers. Whoever finds the cheapest thing (but more than $.36) wins.
I'm trying to spend $1.50 on BN.com to qualify for free shipping. I work at a library so I don't really buy books/movies (unless they are unavailable in the US).
What should I buy?
Also- What would be a good guitar or Mortal Kombat related gift for under $15?
What do you eat when you are super hungry but also super crampy and the idea of anything near your abdomen makes you want to die?
This is my life :(
Is the US the only country where we line up for hours to get somewhat decent deals on things we don't need and practically kill each other for it?
It's hard to picture like, Canadians or Australians or something, going crazy over TVs and pepper spraying people for products, like I heard someone did today. Does any other country have an equivalent to black friday?
Alternatively, why are my fellow Americans such nut jobs?
How much do you spend on gas (if you drive) each month?
If you don't drive, how much do you spend on transportation each month?
Did jcpenney fuck you over today? If not, who fucked you over today?
I made Penneys my Black Friday destination this morning because they had a bunch of kitchen electrics which worked out to $9.88 after rebate. The only restriction in their advertisement book was "1 rebate per item, per address." But now I am reading through the rebate forms, and some of them say that I can only get a rebate on one item -- a limit of a single rebate to any person by name and a single rebate to each address.
The rebates are $10 each, and I bought 4 different rebate items. So if I only get one of the rebates, I'm going to be out $30 that I expected back.
I'm annoyed. I've written to their customer service department, and if I don't get satisfaction there, I'll take it to my state's consumer affairs department.
I live in an apartment with a little balcony. I usually decorate out there for the holidays but I really want to string up some lights along the balcony rails. I've seen other people in the complex do this with their balconies so I know it's possible. But I don't have an outlet outside. As far as I can tell, my neighbors don't have any outlets either but they somehow manage to hang lights outside. How are they doing this? I'd ask them myself but I don't know anybody in these lit up apartments well enough to just knock on their door and ask how to copy their lighting techniques.
How many people or things are you the boss of?
What are you top 3 most listened to songs in your itunes/last fm/choice of music program?
Should I buy my whatever we are depending on what day it is a Christmas gift? (We started as friends, admitted we have feelings for each other and are at a standstill.) We haven't discussed it and I really don't want to bring it up (mostly because I feel like if I do, he will feel obligated to get me something and if he wasn't, it just makes the entire situation uncomfortable in my opinion)
What is a nice homemade gift I can get my co-workers? I usually like to put something small in with their cards, but since I am on a VERY tight budget it has to be cheap.
Who else do you have to shop for?
DK/DC/Bah, humbug: Would you rather go shopping with Carson Kressley from Queer Eye For The Straight Guy/DWTS, Randy from Say Yes To The Dress or Clinton and Stacy from What Not To Wear?
What's the largest amount of money you've ever wasted?
I can't remember what the amount was, but it was well over $5k for nurse aide schooling. I did it because mom was bitching at me to go to college for something. I hated it. I would rather be homeless than do that for a living.
It's really crappy pay, too. If you get $10 an hour to do it you're lucky.
Are "your mom" jokes funny? Were they ever?
Which is worse: "your mom" jokes or "that's what she said" jokes?
My bed is a big, not-too-well-made four poster in a dark mahogany stain. I picked it out when I was 13 or 14 and now I find it drab and dated looking. I can't afford a new bed right now, but i was thinking of painting this one white until i can afford a good quality bed I love. I'm eventually planning to paint my bedroom a pale blue-grey colour, my bedding is mostly white and so is the trim.
Do you think painting my bed white would be a good idea? Would it be difficult, given its current dark colour?
What does your bedroom look like? How do you feel about it? Pictures?
I want to make some weird Christmas cards but I have a dilemma...
Should I spell Christmas as 'Kristmas' or 'Khristmas'? I'm putting it with the words 'Kraken'. Or should I just spell it as 'Christmas' even though the sentiment would read 'Kraken Christmas' and not be as fun. It would still be alliteration though wouldn't it?
In a heterosexual relationship, do you think there is one gender that tends to end relationships more? I've noticed that in my social circle the girls tend to be the ones doing the dumping.
My friend has a theory about how men take longer to fall in love than women do, but once in love women fall out of love/move on faster. Do you think there is any truth to this?
DK/DC: What are your favorite stores for lingerie/undergarments?
If you see "69" in a screenname or e-mail address (suprhot69, badman69, joebiden69 etc.) what judgement do you make about that person?
What should I wear for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend to a sushi restaurant next week?
Can anyone recommend any good, cheap mp3 players? My sister has asked for an ipod for Christmas, but that's just not gonna happen.
I'm looking in the $50-100 range.
Edit: Found one! Thanks guys.
NEW QUESTION: What's the last thing you bought?
Previous to the aforementioned mp3 player, I had to purchase 16 pool thermometers for work.
Are you an only child?
If so, do you feel as though you missed out on something by not having siblings? If so, what do you miss about not having siblings?
If you have siblings, have you ever wished to be an only child? What was attractive to you about it?
1) What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?
2) What are some non-sexual uses for KY jelly?

Can I expect better phone deals next month? Or should I get a penny phone this weekend?
Looking to get the Galaxy Nexus.
What book should I read?
I've been fucking around on my Kindle for like two hours and nothing looks good at all. Bonus points if it's a series. Gold stars if it's under $6.
I'm starting my Christmas baking, and I was wondering if any of you have favorites or traditional baked goods that you like to make for the holidays. Will you share ideas and/or recipes with me?
For me, we make gingerbread cookies every year, so I started with those tonight, since they freeze really well. Only mine are ninjabread cookies, with thinkgeek ninja cookie cutters. :)
TQC what kind of cookware do you have?
do you recommend it?
I'm looking for new cookware (preferably in the ~$150 area) that does not have glass lids. Any thoughts? Amazon has only turned up one result that looks decent. I'd also prefer nonstick :)
How do you feel about sequins? Do you own any clothing with it?
