do i have an obligation to not laugh/dismiss when someone says they've "been talking to god a lot lately"?

jergins, Monday, 27 July 2009 02:43 (eleven years ago) link

no you do not.

estela, Monday, 27 July 2009 03:05 (eleven years ago) link

jergins, Monday, 27 July 2009 03:08 (eleven years ago) link

i had twenty minutes to think through the what if noone answerz scenario and came up with my own. "as a gentleman and person of the world it is your obligation is to be polite. no need to call them out. make fun on the internet all u want though."

jergins, Monday, 27 July 2009 03:10 (eleven years ago) link

i usually aim to be polite with inscrutable thought bubbles in my dealings with difficult others.

estela, Monday, 27 July 2009 03:26 (eleven years ago) link

i can scrute u!

jergins, Monday, 27 July 2009 03:41 (eleven years ago) link

jaq, Thursday, 30 July 2009 21:19 (eleven years ago) link

spite n ease (harbl), Thursday, 30 July 2009 22:44 (eleven years ago) link

i love patent law bc it is a place where you can make arguments based on like, one adjective, to show that your/their thing is different than yours! when i tried making these arguments/discussing word interpretation in my entertainment law class, everyone wanted to push me out the window.

u will go to the patent office to witness? that is awesome!

te,he (tehresa), Friday, 31 July 2009 00:03 (eleven years ago) link

also imagine if our dear jaq's testimony decided the case! how cool would that be?!

te,he (tehresa), Friday, 31 July 2009 00:04 (eleven years ago) link

i think i could fashion an argument allowing the sandbox to take all the credit

spite n ease (harbl), Friday, 31 July 2009 00:06 (eleven years ago) link

the sandbox is having a very highflying week!

estela, Friday, 31 July 2009 00:08 (eleven years ago) link

Alas, I was not expert enough. Oh well.

jaq, Thursday, 6 August 2009 20:34 (eleven years ago) link

spite n ease (harbl), Thursday, 6 August 2009 21:07 (eleven years ago) link

is it a bad omen if your light bulb burns out when you first turn it on in the morning?

tehresa, Sunday, 20 December 2009 18:20 (ten years ago) link

I don't think so - it's much worse to have one suddenly explode after it's been on for a few hours.

jaq, Sunday, 20 December 2009 18:50 (ten years ago) link

whew, thanks, jaq! what a relief :)

tehresa, Sunday, 20 December 2009 19:38 (ten years ago) link

lol we have that in nz

smoove operator, Sunday, 20 December 2009 21:09 (ten years ago) link

experts: in your opinion, if one needs to get up c. 3:45am to leave on time in the morning, is it better to just not go to bed at all?

tehresa, Sunday, 20 December 2009 21:34 (ten years ago) link

If there's no danger of one falling asleep on the sofa and missing the 3:45 am mark, staying up makes sense maybe? Me personally, I like laying in bed, even if it's just to drift in and out in anticipation of getting up stupid early.

jaq, Sunday, 20 December 2009 22:21 (ten years ago) link

i'd try to sleep a few hours, even if it's just 1-3:30

vance labar (jergins), Sunday, 20 December 2009 23:17 (ten years ago) link

with my luck, i would fall asleep around 3 and then turn my alarm off without realizing it at wake up at 10 like WAHT

tehresa, Sunday, 20 December 2009 23:27 (ten years ago) link

ugh yeah i would def sleep!

spite n ease (harbl), Monday, 21 December 2009 06:08 (ten years ago) link

iphone question: if i lock my sim card will that keep me completely safe from paying international roaming charges, or should i take the sim card out of the phone altogether. i'm going to nz for a few days and i want to still use my iphone for reading etc or for internet where there is wireless access. tia experts.

estela, Monday, 11 January 2010 05:10 (ten years ago) link

just put it on "airplane mode"--you can still access wireless internet but no phone things will happen at all

do bees sting animals?

jergins, Thursday, 13 May 2010 19:06 (ten years ago) link

yeah but since bees only sting you if you bother them it's not as often as humans

spite n ease (harbl), Thursday, 13 May 2010 20:03 (ten years ago) link

do bees sting other bees?

i received an "IMPORTANT NOTICE" about cobra benefits addressed to the "family of [tehresa] and spouse/dependents, if any"

q: am i dead?

tehresa, Friday, 14 May 2010 02:26 (ten years ago) link

no but i can email you my full name and ssn if it helps filling out the life insurance

jergins, Friday, 14 May 2010 03:06 (ten years ago) link

*wonders*

maybe this "tehresa" thing is simply a chatterbot/algorithm that generates message board posts in perfect imitation of the real, dearly departed Tehresa. so,

a: yes, you're dead in the physical sense, but your inimitable posting style will outlive us all.

Experts, I can't keep my eyes open this afternoon. What should I do to wake myself up?

jaq, Friday, 21 May 2010 23:49 (ten years ago) link

take a nap?

lxy, Saturday, 22 May 2010 01:09 (ten years ago) link

might have been a better plan than driving, I think!

help me experts - all my skin is itchy, all over. and i have a flat spotted rash in the itchiest places. how to make it stop????

jaq, Thursday, 9 September 2010 00:51 (nine years ago) link

calamine lotion?

smoove operator, Thursday, 9 September 2010 01:15 (nine years ago) link

I don't think I want to put that in my hair ;_;

jaq, Thursday, 9 September 2010 02:01 (nine years ago) link

lavender oil?

smoove operator, Thursday, 9 September 2010 02:40 (nine years ago) link

since it sounds like some kind of allergic reaction an antihistamine might help.

estela, Thursday, 9 September 2010 03:32 (nine years ago) link

Benadryl seemed to knock it out, but also me. Groggy now. I've been wracking my brains trying to think what it might be. Maybe some food on a stick I had at the weekend (music festival). Maybe because I turned on the furnace for the first time? I hope I'm not allergic to lovely warm air.

jaq, Thursday, 9 September 2010 14:22 (nine years ago) link

stress? i have been known to break out in the most bizarre rashes due to stress (has happened in years, but happened a bunch of times when i was younger).

smoove operator, Thursday, 9 September 2010 15:44 (nine years ago) link

I think it might be because I changed dishwasher detergent!

jaq, Thursday, 9 September 2010 17:18 (nine years ago) link

that was a rash thing to do.

A more likely culprit = macadamia nuts! I've been eating a few every afternoon around 2 - today by 2:30 I had massive hives all over my neck and the itching had ramped up to 9 when it had been around 4. Damn!
