What's your go-to outfit or article of clothing for when you need an extra boost of confidence for a date/job interview/whatever? Is it the way the garment fits you that gives you confidence, or is it the connotations attached to it?

Safeway used to have The Skipper, but they eventually changed it to Dr. Skipper. Kroger has Dr. K., which I cannot drink without thinking of Henry Kissinger, so I feel morally conflicted buying it. Western Family brand generic Dr. Pepper is Dr. West, which makes me think of Dr. West And His Medicine Show and Junk Band, which did "The Eggplant That Ate Chicago". What's your favorite Dr. Pepper knockoff? or favorite off-brand supermarket soda?

I have some fabric that I would like to make a shirt out of. However, the fabric fades into different colours and in order to have enough fabric, I would need have the front of the shirt be the yellow/green colouring and the back be the blue/green colouring. Do you think that would be super weird or super...interesting? There is no more of this fabric so the alternative is I find some other use for it. =/

The first lawsuit has been filed in regards to the Colorado threater shooting last week.

http://www.tmz.com/2012/07/24/james-holmes-lawsuit-shooting/

Torrence Brown, Jr. was in Century 16 Theater when Holmes let loose. One of Brown's best friends, A.J. Boik, was shot in the chest and died. Brown, who was not physically injured, claims to now suffer from extreme trauma.

against:

1. The theater. Karpel claims it was negligent for the theater to have an emergency door in the front that was not alarmed or guarded. It's widely believed Holmes entered the theater with a ticket, propped the emergency door open from inside, went to his car and returned with guns.

2. Holmes' doctors. Karpel says it appears Holmes was on several medications -- prescribed by one or more doctors -- at the time of the shooting and he believes the docs did not properly monitor Holmes.

3. Warner Bros. Karpel says "Dark Knight Rises" was particularly violent and Holmes mimicked some of the action. The attorney says theater goers were helpless because they thought the shooter was part of the movie. Karpel tells TMZ, "Somebody has to be responsible for the rampant violence that is shown today."

-----------------------------

Any thoughts on this? At face value do you feel like any/all of those entities were negligent?

Dreams

I have been reading my dreams lately. I mean just like you read a book I have been reading my dreams. My questions are this: does this happen to anyone else and what does that mean?

Eid

I want to get a coworker a gift for Eid, as she and I frequently discuss our religions at work and she and I get on very well. We work in The Body Shop, so perfumes/body products are kind of out of the question haha. I am not very good at gift getting anyway, so does anyone have any ideas?

this might be a stupid question..

if divorced parents have complete split custody (child with one parent one week, the other parent the next week etc. etc.) can one parent still take the other to court for child support?

what if one parent has primary custody but still has an agreement with the other parent to share the child's time completely equally? can one parent take the other to court for child support

habits

1. what bad habit have you picked up in the last year? also, what habits (good or bad) have you let go of?

2. i have such a drive to get physically fit, but i don't know where to start. whats a successful, simple first step you've taken towards getting healthy that surprised you how well it worked?

3. i'm so paranoidly camera shy and always have been. how will i ever get over this?

both serious or non serious replies are welcome

Have you ever taken a job that (some might say) was "beneath you"? Why?

If the person interviewing you thought the job was beneath you, how did you convince them that you sincerely wanted it and wouldn't quit at the next opportunity?

I saw a help wanted sign at a specialty retail store today. The place looks pretty laid back, and it's close to my house. It's perfect for me because I've lucked into a situation with extremely low living expenses, and I want to semi-retire and focus on personal projects.
