My friend and I are going to Jamaica on Friday, we need to drive to an airport two hours away and we want to make a playlist for our 2am drive. Can I have your most upbeat/ wild roadtrip songs? Please?

DK? Does anyone in your family get really emotionally involved while watching sports on tv? How do they show it? Any funny stories?

When cleaning out your bookshelf, how do you decide what books to keep or give away? If you've finished a book do you pass it on or keep it?


DN/DK: If you've got a quandary about whether to throw out a book, will you post the title here and we'll tell you what to do?

Exploitative images [Apr. 25th, 2012|12:22 pm]
The Question Club

[dimwits]
'The American Apparel clothing chain has been warned against using exploitative images of women after a watchdog ruled a series of ads were likely to cause 'serious and widespread offence'. Eight ads on the retailer’s website and in a free magazine in October showed women modelling knickers, socks and sweaters in various poses that exposed their breasts or buttocks.'Why do they call these images 'exploitative'? What is exploitative about them?

I'm going to crosspost this to the more specific comms I'm a part of, but in general:

Anyone have weight issues AS A SIDE EFFECT of meds they take?  How do you deal with people's reactions to your weight?  Do you tell them "I'm actually on Blahblah because of XYZ Disorder"?  Do you just smile and nod as they launch into suggestions for their ideal diet and exercise regimen for you?  Something else involving your fist in their face?

Everyone from my landlady to my new ob/gyn both theoretically KNOWS I'm on lithium and at the same time utterly fails to see how that has any connection to my being overweight, and go right on yakking about "calories in, calories out" like I'm 10 years old.  When there are decades of patient data showing that hey, the drug has a very real effect.

Maury Maury quite contrary [Apr. 25th, 2012|05:05 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[fourcorners]

Your SO invited you to lunch at a new restaurant. He/she gives you the directions how to get there. As you're approaching the building, you realize that it's not a restaurant at all, but the studio for the Maury Povich show. You doublecheck the address. Yep. This is the place your SO invited you to without revealing what the place really was beforehand. What do you do?

Go ahead and enter the studio and see what my SO...and possibly Maury...have in store for me
23(25.8%)
Turn around and go somewhere else. No way I'm going on that show
12(13.5%)
Text/call my SO. "Um...are you really inviting me on the Maury show?" Leave if he/she says yes
34(38.2%)
Same as above, except I go on the show if my SO says yes, but only if my SO tells me
7(7.9%)
What's this bullshit? I break up with my SO while still in my car outside the studio. If he/she indeed invited me on the show, there's no way this was going to work out.

What are you cheesed about?

My university/department keeps scheduling events and announcing them less than a week in advance, as if students don't have jobs or prior engagements they may need to schedule around. Example: I would love to go to the English awards ceremony, but it's Friday at 3:30 and they just sent out the email today. WTF ENGLISH DEPARTMENT.

DK/DC: if you could eat anything right now, what would you eat? I'm craving a Cuban sandwich. Fortunately I have the fixins for it, so it looks like that craving will be satisfied shortly!

what's that song? [Apr. 25th, 2012|09:22 pm]

[roasted_kiwi]
I am trying to find a song by its lyrics and am having no luck. It's an angry pop/rock type song, female singer, and the lyrics that I can remember are "i'm like you, i can bleed, i can bruise" and "this is life, this is death" or something similar. Can you help?

Do you like comedy/stand-up?
I used to think it was just stand-up that I disliked, but now I think I just don't like live comedy in general. I saw a Second City touring show tonight and thought it was pretty mediocre. And come to think of it, I've hardly ever seen a comedy show that I enjoyed besides Eddie Izzard.

From an Assistant Art Teacher [Apr. 25th, 2012|09:26 pm]

[aysquid]
Do you experience drawing anxiety? (EDIT: Do you get embarrassed and frustrated whenever you try to draw?)

If you took art classes in school, what did you want to get out of them? (Like, did you want a space to doodle, or did you want to play with all the different art materials, or did you want to learn how to do something specific, like draw realistically?)

What did you actually get out of your art classes?

Do you think drawing (not art in general, just drawing in particular) is a skill kids should learn in school?

how much do you owe in student loans? do you believe a tuition based education is sustainable or just another form of capitalist idealism?
