I want some dumb online games to play. Maybe a city building game or something sort of Sim-ish. Anyone have any recommendations? I really enjoyed playing the mobile game Surviving High School. Something similar to that would be cool.

In response to the article I posted yesterday (oh god, I just watched the video, what the fucking fuck), someone on my facebook asked:

"Do any of you have any links to articles which argue against the basic stance taken in that editorial? I mean, specific arguments against the claim that women are using their sexuality to attract attention - but only if it is from the men they want.

It is a subject I don't know enough about and would like to see more in reply to this article..."

Any suggestions?

For those of you that consider yourselves good cooks, how did you learn? Family? Trial & Error? School?
What are some of your favorite recipes?

I enjoy cooking, but hate cooking for others because I'm afraid they won't like what I like or I'll mess up somehow.

Veg*ns, can you consciously smell if someone is a meat eater/has increased their meat consumption?

I know a friend who can, but I don't consciously notice, which means I go "this person is suddenly less attractive and I can't think of any logical reason why" until I figure it out.

Science for those interested.

How many times a day would you say you wash your hands?

Do you ever wash your hands "just because" (aka a time other than after using the bathroom, before/after handling food or eating, after handling something sticky or messy, after touching animals, etc.)? How often do you do that?

Do your hands/under your nails ever feel "dirty" to you even if you've just washed them? How do you make it go away? ETA: I already do scrub like crazy with a nail brush :[ :[

Isn't there some saying about the fall of Rome? Something like "Even Rome fell," but more eloquent and poetic? I'm having a major brain fart right now...

dk/dc If you have a favorite saying, quotation, or motto, what is it?

Vegans/Vegetarians

If you are vegan or vegetarian, what made you decide to do it?

Was it difficult? Do you ever miss meat/animal products? Hardest one to give up?

Also, what is the difference between vegan and vegetarian really? I believe I heard vegans are more strict and don't eat products made by animals period including milk and such, where as vegetarians it's mostly just the meat products they avoid.

Do you have any bumper stickers?
What do they say?


If you saw a bumper sticker that read "Civil rights are so gay" what would you think?


I have several, mind you these are spread over three vehicles:

"Pro-family, Pro-child, Pro-choice. Support sex and health education"

"Against gay marriage? Dont have one"

"If the fetus you saved was gay, would you still fight for its rights?"

"The top ten reasons to have your pet spayed or neutered were killed in shelters last year"

Needless to say I get a lot of nasty looks.

TQC, I have a friend coming over tonight. What should we get for takeout while we hang out and watch tv/movies? We've got Chinese, Chipotle, pizza and Thai on the table.

How should I celebrate getting not one but two jobs today (only one of which is paid but STILL)? I have the next two days off!

Debt free?

How much are you in debt? Do you have any inspiring get-out-of-debt stories? I find Dave Ramsey's books incredibly inspiring. If you've read his stuff, what do you think?

Is anyone watching the Daytona 500 tonight? Was watching Montoya hit the jet dryer the craziest thing you've seen happen during a race? If not, what's the craziest thing you've seen happen during a race?

Seeing him hit the jet dryer was the craziest thing for me.

Will you share a few singers or bands you're really into at the moment?
I've really been into rockabilly music for the past year or so, and found The Psycho DeVilles a few months back...have been listening to them non stop.

Have you ever been really into a singer/band from their CDs, videos, or what have you, only to see them live and be totally disappointed? Who were they, and what was so disappointing?
I haven't seen many acts I've been disappointed with, but have been disappointed by the acoustics of the venue.

DK/DC: when was the last time you did laundry?
