We will have a camp stove, coolers & access to ice. What kind of food should I bring?
You're given a superpower. The ability to magically heal. Any disease, any ailment, any condition. They're healed the next day, so you can use this power inconspicuously if you wanted. There's no limit per healings per day, but there is a price to pay. For every 20 people you heal, you must take the life of 1 person. For you, it's easy. You just look at them and mentally push a button, and the next day, they don't wake up, so you're never a suspect. You can do this with people on tv too. So, you could kill 100 people, and heal 2,000. Also, the credit you get per kill doesn't expire, so you could whack the serial rapist who's shown on the news and just save the 20 heals for yourself whenever you need it. How often would you use this power?
You're given a superpower. The power of teleportation! You can teleport anywhere in the world. You don't even have to know the layout beforehand. Your power lands you within a foot of the nearest solid object, so you'll never materialize inside a wall, let's say. You can look at a picture and teleport to that spot. Otherwise, just picture the image in your head. The only drawback is that each time you 'jump', 1 day of your life gets removed, so if you teleport 30 times, you'll die 30 days sooner than you would normally (whenever that may be). How often would you use this power?
You're given the Green Lantern ring! You can make anything with your thoughts, depending on your willpower. The only thing is, every time you use this power, the flashy Green Lantern costume appears on your body, regardless of how insignificant the action may be. So, pretty much it's hard to keep a low profile when you're out in public. How would you use this ring?
Today they almost lit the bush in front of my patio on fire when they dropped a still-lit blunt onto it and didn't notice. I only noticed because I'm home, and the weed-smell turned into a weird, earthy campfire-smell. They giggled when I shouted at them to look what they did.
I really want to call their dad to tell him what's up. Is that tattling, or the logical consequence of being a careless teenager?
What were you last year?
Do you get dressed up for work?
I'm going to be Miss Piggy :)
I didn't end up dressing up last year due to a severely sprained ankle
I won't be getting dressed up for work though, because I Don't think the judges in court would like that.
I've been with an amazing guy who I just connect with for about 2 months. He is American, I am British. I am living here till next May. He has been offered a job in Singapore for 6 months, leaving in less than 2 weeks. He says he's going to marry me, wants to settle down with me, come back to the UK with me etc when the time comes. However i'm terrified of the thought of a LDR especially with someone I have only been with for such a short time. The thought of not being with him/him not being here terrifies me. Him not going is not an option, however much he says if I really insist/won't give things a try he won't go, it's too good an opportunity and he's not happy here. I have no idea what to do other than to just see how things go, however every time I think of him leaving it makes me want to crawl into a ball and howl. Whilst 6 months doesn't seem like a long time, the circumstances make it more difficult.
WWTQCD? Any advice?
Which watch do you like the best?
My twins are both really sick. I've spent 10 hours in emergency with my son in the last two days. My daughter hasn't been feeling well but only showed signs it was getting worse today. My son should be on the mend soon but my daughter is getting worse and it's unlikely they'll be good enough by the time the weekend comes.
I emailed the guy and told him our situation. He said that the deposit is not refundable and he is keeping the damage deposit too if he can't find anyone to take the cabin because he could have made that amount of money off someone else. The damage deposit is $200.
Is he allowed to do that or is he only allowed to keep the deposit to hold the reservation?
