I learned yesterday that a long cycle of insomnia is indicative of an upcoming manic episode.
My mind is still blown.
What have you learned recently?
I bought an iPod Classic about 6 months ago, and the HD has started having issues. I originally bought it from Walmart and purchased an extended warranty with it, but after reading reviews of the company that services products under the warranty, I'm wary to send it in. If I take it to an Apple store and they can't fix it, will they replace it with a new or refurbished iPod? I really don't want a refurbished one as I've had quite a few bad experiences with refurbished electronics in the past, so I'm just curious.
people with long hair - how the hell do you sleep?
'cause if i sleep with my hair down, i swear it just gets messed up and i end up waking up from pulling it while tossing and turning.
is there some secret i don't know?
what's a hair color/style you wish you either had or could pull off?
If a person knowingly/willingly goes to an orgy, gets very very drunk or stoned and has sex, was it rape? Did their presence at an orgy imply consent even if they were not able to expressly give it when the sex occurred?
How much money have you ever spent in a single bout on someone else and for what reason? Was it medical related or a present, or did you owe them, etc?
Speaking of, what's the most you've ever spent on yourself?
Last night, I spent $225 on a friend - super belated birthday present(s). It was the first time I've even spent $50 on a gift for someone.

I've just gotten a USB adapter for one of my old hard drives, but when I try to view files on it from my new laptop, it keeps telling me I don't have the correct permission to access the file location.. what do I need to do to get that?
I'm going to my friends house to make dinner tonight.
Do you have any suggestions for relatively cheap dinners that we can make?
We love everything, can handle relatively difficult, and have a budget of about $15.
I can go to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and about fifteen other random grocery stores along the way.
When I was making an answer key for my final today, I was leaning on a paper so that all of the answers were indented on one of the exams. One of my students raised his hand to let me know that his final exam had all the answers on it. Should I give him extra credit for being so ridiculously and wonderfully honest?
what are some of your flaws, either physically or characteristically? what are some things you're insecure about?
is it against the law to sell nazi relics?
I'm quitting my job, and in an ideal world I'd walk in, give her my notice, scream a little bit and then never turn up again. Obviously, I can't do this and have to work out my notice. What are some tricks to just make the next two weeks bearable? My boss is a self centered douche-canoe that does nothing but talk about her own, personal problems and belittles everyone else.
There was recently a discussion on a forum about people who come to conventions when suffering from colds.
Some people were of the mind that colds and coughs can be caught by other people and are an irritation to deal with so people who have colds and coughs should stay home from conventions.
On the other hand, if people stayed home they'd be forfeiting convention fees and often non-refundable travel costs (which can include air fares as some people travel overseas for conventions) and sometimes hotels are non-refundable as well (and in some cases people could be looking at losing £150 in hotel fees for a weekend convention)
What do you think, should people who have coughs and colds stay home from conventions?
How is a raven like a writing desk?
Have you ever had to pay your tuition out of pocket while waiting for you grant or other financial aid to come through? Did the aid come through ok? If it did, did you get the full amount you paid back?
Have you ever known someone with unrealistic dreams or an idea that they are really talented or good at something when in fact they suck? For example, someone who wants to be a singer even though they sound like an off-key Tom Waits or a writer who makes E. J James look like Hemingway? How did you cope with this? Just smile and nod when they talk about their talent or try and convince them otherwise?
What if the person is about to do something that will result in their utter humiliation, like audition for a televised talent programme or perform at a school talent show? Do you support them in their venture or try and talk them out of it? Would you ever be brutally honest?
How can I find out what played on 98.9 FM in Austin, TX at 5 p.m. today? It was the song that came on before Rod Stewart's Maggie May, it was a Beatles cover but I can't remember which song, just that it was amazingly fun to sing along to. It was a very powerful woman's voice.
I thought the website would have a show playlist like most radio sites do but I can't find it :(
I have a fish tank (that is only 3 weeks old - no fish yet!) which I think could be leaking.
It's sat on polystyrene, which is slightly damp and has a yellowy mould growing (very lightly) on it.
The water level seems to be dropping at a rate of about a couple of mm a week.
However, there's a fabric bag with filtery things in it, which had a cord running up and over the edge, where there seemed to be water collecting.
What are the chances this was the main culprit?
If your partner became incapable of using the bathroom on their own, would you help them? What would be your boundaries?
Can you recommend any audiobooks? I'm especially interested in extremely long books or series, in pretty much any genre as long as it's entertaining.
Today my coworkers and I finished the 5th book in A Song of Ice and Fire (the Game of Thrones series) and now our lives have lost all meaning :(
You may also use this post to talk about anything game of thrones related!!!!
My roommate/friend is in her room crying while talking to her mom about a recent breakup.
Is there anything that made you feel better during a breakup? Is there anything I could do that might cheer her up?
