I'm feeling crappy right now. I made a mistake and I fucked up a relationship with a guy that could have been good for me. He just wants to be friends now because I strung him along for to long and it sucks because it's all my fault..

How can I make myself feel better? How do y'all make yourselves feel better.

The zombie apocalypse has happened. You've banded together with a group of other survivors and somehow risen to leadership position in the group. One of the group members is being a complete slacker, mooch, not pulling his weight. You've spoken to him about it more than once, to no avail. Do you...?

Let him stay and do your best to compensate for his lack of contribution. No one deserves to be left alone in this harsh climate!
Give him enough of the group's supplies to survive for a few days and tell him he's on his own now.
Kick him out of the group with nothing but the clothes on his back.
Kill him and take his stuff

Saying I'm Sorry

There is a guy that I hurt (emotionally) pretty bad. I tried to call him a few months ago to apologize. I even tried txting. I want him to know that I am sincerely sorry for the things I said and did. Everyone keeps telling me to tell him. The problem is not that I am not willing, he did not want to talk to me about it before. My motives for apologizing are not to get back together, be his friend or get anything from him. I just want him to know I am sorry. Period. I would write him a letter, but I have a feeling as soon as he sees it is from me, he will just throw it away. Maybe that's enough though. At least I would have tried, right

Any suggestions?

***Thanks for the replies. I'm just going to let it go until he lets me know he's ready.***

Group test

In a few hours I'm gonna be taking a group test. In other words, my group of 6 people and I have one hour to complete the test in one hour. I'm a little scared because it's a lot of material, and as far as I know, my classmates haven't studied a lot. The questions are gonna be of analysis, and the class if Microbial Physiology. I have never taken an exam this way, and I'm scared that because of bad organization or coordination, we don't finish the exam in time!

Have any of you done a group exam before?

Will you share any tips that you could think of that have worked for you?

I would appreciate any help!

Dogs tl;dr

I have 2 dogs. A year-old Australian Shepherd and a year-and-a-half-old Corgi. So, two obviously high-energy herding dogs. I take them to the dog park religiously (it's right around the corner) and they get exercise. The problem is actually the Corgi in relation to the Aussie.

Corgi is a chewer. He'll chew furniture and drywall. So to combat this we used to give him chew toys a-plenty. However, when we introduced the Aussie into the house, he discovered he's far too possessive over really good chew things because she'll try to swipe them from him. After one or two scuffles (no bloodshed or anything like that, but two sufficiently pissed off dogs) we downgraded them both to simple non-food toys and they're quite fine sharing those. For the most part, they play together during the day and wrestle and occupy each other. However, lately the Corgi has gone back to his old ways of chewing out of (I guess) boredom.

-We can't leave them outside because the Aussie is a barker and we have an elderly neighbor
-We already only give them run of the front room while we're gone, so we're already containing them
-Corgi would surely be less bored with more tasty chew things but that's a big fat no
-Corgi does not seem the least bit turned off by no-chew spray, hot pepper or lemon stuff

Does anyone have any ideas for solving this? I am worried he's going to start chewing on our wooden stairs or something next (1920's house)! Doggie daycare is too expensive, and I want him to be entertained while we're gone, but not with toys that I know he'll get snappy about when the Aussie pup tries to swipe them.

Edited to add: they don't ever chew on anything when I'm home, just to make things tricky

What are some common traffic laws that you pay no regards to? Or things you do while driving that may or may not be illegal, but you do them anyway even though you're not sure?

For example, there are two lanes that are dedicated right turn lanes. You're the in the outer right turn lane, do you turn on red? I usually do, but I'm not sure if this is exactly legal where I live.

I'll be graduating in July, and have a summer job to see me through to September. After that, i'll just be looking for bar/shop work for a little while. When is too soon to start applying to places?

Money or Art

I have a wakeboard that I usually let my guy friends or whoever use. I've been tempted to sell it and use the money towards buying a new board for me. However,  part of me wants to take the bindings off, paint it and hang it on my wall. What would you do?

I brought home an old Royal typewriter from my grandma's and I'd like to try it out. However, I can't get the letters to strike—the keys seem to work just fine, but the typebars only lift up about halfway to the paper before stopping. I know nothing about typewriters. What might be causing this and how can I fix it?

When did you last see a child do something cute?

My 5-year-old cousin was sitting on the porch after playing soccer with his mouth hanging open. I asked why he had his mouth open like that, and he answered, "Acting like alligators. They open their mouths when it's hot to let the heat out."
Bite me, bitch...

Consider the following joke:

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Jessica Simpson: Why would chickens cross the road? I thought they lived in the ocean?
Machiavelli: The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The end of crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was.
Neil Armstrong: To go where no chicken has gone before.
George Bush: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or it is against us. There is no middle ground.
Dr. Seuss: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road. But why it crossed, I've not been told.
Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain. Alone.
L.A.P.D.: Give me ten minutes alone with the chicken and I'll find out.
Colonel Sanders: I missed one?

Who would you add and what explanation would they give?
I'd probably have House cite a neurological disorder or Peter Griffin claim it didn't wanna get its ass kicked again. :P

What do you use to keep your kitchen drain clear? I have those cheapie wire mesh basket dealies.

What home/office decor do you have that involves animal imagery? Any other images like fruit/flowers/fairies/sad clowns on velvet?

What amazing but probably useless fact have you learned recently?

I just learned that flax seeds are so slippery that you could drown in a vat of them. Wow!
That would make for an interesting post-mortem:
"COD: drowning."
"But there was no water anywhere..."
"No, she drowned in flax seeds."

Have you ever had a professor that was just so unbearable you rarely went to class?

I've never been one to really skip school, but this professor is awful. He is so elitist and classist it's unbelievable, and he will not shut up about his ~HARVARD DEGREE~. A good portion of every lecture is spent- not on the subject matter- but on how awesome and "cultured" he is. It sucks because it's hard enough for me to enjoy a religious studies class when it's a class of 100 people (and not a discussion forum), but now I also have to contend with his pompousness.

Also, what are your favorite chips?

Do you think cake legitimately counts as a grain product, when considering a balanced diet? *Not 'on' a diet, just general healthy eating.*

Healthiness is irrelevant, is it cake.
None of these answers express my thoughts; I will explain in a comment!
I am offended by this question
whoop de fuckin doo

Completely random questions

1. Are there any old memes or viral videos that never get too old for you to enjoy? If so, will you share your favorites?

2. What does ironic really mean? I thought it had to do with opposites? I suck at making up examples. I've noticed that some people on the internet become mindlessly infuriated over the usage of this word, and I don't want to accidentally incur their wrath one day. I have also, to my knowledge, never seen this word used incorrectly, except for once a few weeks ago...OR SO I THINK. What if she was the only person using it correctly?

3. Have you ever tried working around one of your flaws instead of trying to improve yourself (because your improvement attempts kept failing)? How did that turn out?

4. Do you have any green clothing that is part of your regular wardrobe, and is not just for St. Patrick's Day or other special occasions?

Who is your favorite musical artist, past or present? Please choose one. [tldr]I've been having a rough time lately, and I'm about to wash a bunch of clothes in the bathtub, and nothing I feel like listening to sounds good; it's all, like, "Eh, I've heard that, I know what it sounds like." So I'm hoping some new music might help bring some solace, so I'm going to make a Pandora station with your favorites. Please allow human compassion to make only serious recommedations.
