Paradigm Shift

FOR $10,000,000, would you...?

...get an actual sized tattoo of Justin Bieber's head across your back? You can't get it removed or you lose the money

Yes
35(39.8%)
No
53(60.2%)

...work at a glory hole in a sex club that opened up a block away from your home? There's a damn good chance you'll end up giving oral to someone you know. There's mirrors arranged in a way that you can see who they are but they can't see you, and you have to satisfy everyone who puts their junk through the hole. No exceptions. If you're not into guys, then imagine it's some reverse glory hole where girls put their bits against a hole and get orally pleasured

Yes
37(42.0%)
No
51(58.0%)

...join the Westboro Baptists in a protest in front of the most popular area in your city? You HAVE to carry a GOD HATES FAG sign, and nothing you wear or carry can make it seem like it was ironic or that you were mocking the WBC. From all appearances, you'll look like one of them. For one whole day. $10,000,000 for a day of shame

Yes
35(40.2%)
No
52(59.8%)

...gain 100lbs and keep it for 6 months? You'll be given an enormous check a half a year later

Yes
30(33.7%)
No
59(66.3%)

...bang your best friend's significant other, and have your friend find you in bed together? You can't tell your friend in advance about the money. You can tell him/her after you're discovered though and offer your friend some, but will it repair the friendship?

Yes

No

Edit: the glory hole work would just be for one night only

Gift for Instructor

My daughter is enrolled in Mommy and Me swim lessons. They are two days a week and 20min each day. The lessons are free. I feel like I should give her instructor a small gift as a token of our appreciation. But I really know nothing about her. She looks young, probably 18. I don't know of she goes to college or even where she lives, so gift cards are kind of hard. Any suggestions?
come onnnn, thanks for the icon, like rly

SO. I graduated from college last year and for a graduation present, my mom told me that I would be receiving a Macbook since my profession would be dealing with photoshop and many other image editing software. I have to go to the library and use my boyfriend's university ID and pw to use photoshop but now he is graduating and we are moving out of town and using my boyfriend's laptop is nice, but I don't want to download a bunch of things onto his computer since it's not mine to begin with. Plus, I would be using a lot of time on his computer which is not fair for him.

Basically, it would be nice if my mom didn't fall through with her word, or at least said something so I wouldn't be left wondering. I would completely understand if she couldn't.  I am not making much money and am currently saving to fall back on when we move, so I cannot contribute all of my savings for a Macbook. I have been understanding because she got laid off but was hired again last year making decent money, but not money to suddenly drop $1,000 on, so I have been looking on places like craigslist and there are Macbooks going for decent prices.

How do I go about asking my mom, a year after graduation, if she is still going to purchase one for me? I don't want to be pushy but it did kind of hurt my feelings, mainly because she did not mention anything about it after talking about it for two weeks. The subject kind of just got dropped without any closure.

You're at a party and across the room, you spy your celebrity crush (the famous person you have the most romantic-esque feelings for). How are you most likely to act in this situation?

Walk over and start a conversation with them, one that shows how much I admire them and follow their work
12(18.5%)
In my head, I'm far more coherent and suave like in the first option, but in reality, I'd probably make a fool out of myself trying to talk to them
24(36.9%)
Just ask for an autograph. I don't think I could say much more than that
1(1.5%)
Smile at them across the room or flirt somehow and hope they approach
4(6.2%)
Just stand there, squee-ing, in sheer disbelief and happiness
4(6.2%)
Ask to take my picture with them
9(13.8%)
Just take pictures of them across the room. That's as close as I'd get to approaching them
2(3.1%)
I would probably just stalk my crush through the party, following him/her at a reasonable but safe distance
4(6.2%)
Nothing really. While it would be nice to see them in person, I'm sure I'd be pretty indifferent about them as actual people

You're at a party and across the room, you spy the celebrity that you 'fanboy/fangirl' over, or have a girlcrush/mancrush on, or just plain idolize. How do you picture yourself reacting in this situation?

I want to make my son a superhero costume for halloween (early, i know).  I want one of those one piece leotard/body suit things with either shorts length or full leg length in a bright color.  Where can I get one in a toddler size?  If I search leotards, I get all the girl cut ones and if I search bodysuit get the infant bodysuit/onesie.  Is there a specific name for those things?

I need some advice.

My dad's mother passed away a few weeks ago. We weren't close and her death hasn't affected me at all, but my dad is pretty torn up about it. I'm very sad for him. The problem is, though, that he keeps trying to give me all her stuff. I've accepted some sentimental things because I felt like it was the right thing to do, but he keeps trying to push things I will never need, will never have any use for, and have no sentimental value to anyone. They're things like duffel bags, old purses, reusable grocery bags... things that will just collect dust.

How do I keep saying no without hurting his feelings? He is starting to get a little upset, but frankly, I have no room for this stuff and it's better off being donated. I know the end-game is to donate what's not going to be used, but I kind of want to skip the "do you need/want X" step, because I don't.

I'm going to see my godchildren for the first time in far too long. They're four and five, and I want to bring them something, but I don't want to just fill their lives with cheap plastic. I want to give them something meaningful. I was thinking books, but I don't know what books they own. What should I give them? Are there any kids' books for those ages that they probably don't have that would be appropriate for an atheist godparent to give a Christian godchild? Or any non-book suggestions?

I've been getting calls to my landline, and when I try to call back, it is a disconnected number. How does this work? It's not like they called once and just shut down afterwards. Is there a way for people to mask their phone numbers?
Has this happened to anyone else? Should I notify the police?

I want to buy some new songs from iTunes to celebrate losing some weight.  I like fun, pop music for working out: Party in the USA, Thrift Shop, Ice Ice Baby (and other 90s hits!).  What songs would you buy for your workout playlist?

My step mom works for hampton. She gave me a pass for any hilton-owned company at the employee rate. I would like to do something with my boyfriend for around our one year anniversary which is in august. I live too close to Chicago to spend a night there (it has to be 40 miles away).
We are VERY limited on funds but I was thinking traveling early for random hikes, random small meals, more exploration, etc. Then have anything to eat at that point and enjoy the rest of the night together.
continental breakfast, small hike, and head home.

Basically enjoy the outdoors but I'm not sure of some good hikes to go on around starved rock? Could also go any other route for suggestions. I would love to surprise my boyfriend with a fun trip like this.

Thank you in advance
