Anyone know of any good, non-scamming, people-finding websites that are free? I just need to find the address of someone who is not in the phone book.  Any ideas?

If not free, then one that doesn't require a credit card?

On that note, why is it some people are in the WhitePages and others aren't? Do some people call them and request to be removed?

What happens if a non-incumbant presidential candidate dies or becomes otherwise unable to be president right before the election?  Does their VP candidate automatically step up and become the candidate for POTUS?

Have you ever stolen something? If so, what was it and who did it belong to?
Do you still have the item (if it wasn’t something like food for example)? Did you give it back or consider giving it back?
If you got caught, what happened?
If you had been caught, how would you have acted?

How would you go about planning a party in a derelict building?

I know of (Several) perfect locations and would love to arrange something, I just want it to be a little more than a few friends and I camping in a dark empty room with a couple'a candles and a few beers like last time.

There is always the risk of being caught. What would you do about music, lights, advertising it without being too obvious (Ie sticking posters up and having the cops find out a day later) ?

Has anybody else had any experience doing anything similar?

... I just donated $15 to a UN worker who came to my front door in a blue polo with the UN logo on it and khaki pants with a leather binder, and went on a very long spiel about the UN and what the UN does and how they help refugees, giving me a run-down of the various issues going on in the world that the UN is involved in, etc. He presented me with some laminated example pamphlets and a donation form to fill out that had a white copy and a yellow copy in back; I kept the yellow and he took the white. He was extremely nice, seemed to know what he was talking about, and it all seemed legitimate. And I tend to have a pretty good sense of intuition about this sort of thing, so I was like "Why not?"

here"s a photo of my copy of the form, in case that helpsCollapse )

Only... now I'm realizing that I've NEVER heard of UN workers soliciting door to door. Or any other humanitarian rights organization, for that matter. Did I just get scammed? =/

How much meth can you make from a box of Sudafed? I was disallowed from buying two boxes of Sudafed at the pharmacy yesterday. TWO boxes? One box was the 12 hour pill, which has a high milligram amount per pill, so maybe that's why? I sorta figured if meth requires a lab then you'd need to distill like a dozen boxes of Sudafed to make....well, to make whatever amounts to a useful single-person dose of meth.

Soooo, in another community I read, the OP was asking for advice on how to keep her neighbors dog from crapping in her yard. Apparently the drunken bozo next-door/across-the-street just lets the dog out, it wanders over and takes a crap wherever.

Aside from offering advice on fencing the OP's front yard, putting bushy plants in, along w/ edging to otherwise discourage a dog from squatting in their grassy areas.. I also mentioned the use of a BB Gun or paintball gun to help move the dog along while its trying to pick out a spot to do it's business.

Yes, I get it. I'm a horrible Horrible person.

What confuses me tho, is ANOTHER poster suggested taking a Golf-club to the pooch instead and gets no comment! WTF? How fair is that?

How do you feel about the practice of the police using "bait cars" - those cars designed to be auto-theft targets, that once stolen and taken from the scene, will eventually come to a stop and lock the doors, trapping the occupants until removed by the police shortly thereafter? (at which point they're charged with auto theft)

Your neighbours are having a massive fight and you hear someone get slammed against the wall followed by a sound like someone kicking the door down.

I haven't had to deal with domestic violence happening in an apartment down the hall from me before, but I am now. It is a neighbour I am friendly with.


For What It's Worth
I called the building super figuring he's more imposing and knows what to do in this sort of situation. The guy left after the super talked to them and I went and checked on her and her daughter to make sure they were okay.

Here's one google couldn't help me with (I couldn't think of a good search term) and my fount of useless knowledge of a husband drew a blank on!

What happens to someone's bills when they go to jail? There is no income so aside from the millionaire white collar criminals, they can't pay them. Do they get waived? Go on long term deferment? Is there a special hold for situations like that? Do they just end up going to collections after enough payments have been missed?

ETA: Obviously a lot of people in jail don't give a damn. I'm trying to imagine someone like myself in that position though. I have $50k in college loans I'm paying off. Were I to get arrested, I'd want to get out of jail and not have collection agencies breathing down my neck. Without income, is that even possible once my savings runs dry?

Additionally: No, I have no intention of killing someone if it gets me out of my financial obligations. Although...

Mine's shitty. I'd say, Don't get me started, but I'm not sure I have the coordination left to punch it out coherently. But I am very, very drunk right now and I think that by dealing with certain people this week, I have earned the privilege to attempt to kill myself by drinking.

Thank you very much.

Edit: Okay, when I say, die by drinking, I'm speaking figuratively. Not literally. Christ. Please don't call the cops.

Okay, so. You're a human being. You have a relatively 'normal', healthy human body, and a human mind. You're dropped on a planet with no recollection of anything. It's flat as far as the eye can see, and you know pretty much nothing of 'human' biology. You don't know what's inside your body or anything.

All you know is that you're alone. You're weak with hunger and thirst, because there's no food or water or anything. You're miserable, and you're dying.

For whatever reason, you know how to shoot a gun. You've got a gun. You've got one bullet.

You have one chance to end everything, and you're going to take it.

Remember- you have NO memory of your parents, your upbringing, society, science, anything. And you don't have any knowledge of how things die.

You don't know what a brain is, or what a heart is, or anything.

You have to end your life.

Where (into your body) do you shoot the gun?

[This is not a trick question, so let's not try to poke holes in the scenario. None of this "I would try to find sustenance!" nonsense. None of that. Don't wimp out on me!]

What's your thought process like, when you're picking the spot you're going to shoot yourself?

So, there was a bizarre traffic situation on the highway this morning and we can't figure out what it could have been.

I was northbound, watching this across the median. So they were going south on I-575 toward Atlanta, around noon.

First there was a police car parked far ahead of the whole thing, on the side of the highway, with his lights on. No traffic on the road after him, until we passed at least 15-20 police motorcycles in formation with their lights on.

You'd think funeral procession, right?

After that was a semi carrying a railroad train car. Then another semi, carrying the wheels and such to said train car. (...don't they usually just transport the boxes themselves, and the wheels are interchangeable?)

Behind them were even more police cruisers with lights on. Behind them, traffic was backed up and standstill for miles.

So, uh. What the hell was in that train compartment that warranted around 30-40 cops to guard/escort it?

1. Having sex with underage persons is illegal. Hence the appropriate slang 'jailbait'.
2. Increasingly, as time goes by, younger women are wearing more sexually revealing clothing.
3. The age of consent is not universal and varies from 12 to 18 all over the world.
4. Some places it's even younger.
5. Younger men do not really get more sexually revealing clothing. Life's unfair, girls rule.
6. Young people are sexually developing faster then they used to for whatever reason.

What does it all mean?!?

*cough*
Imagine this hypothetical scenario:
You download a lot of things illegally, and have started to get worried about getting caught since the police recently gotten tougher on this sort of "crime". You decide that it's still not a big risk, but invests anyway in an extra external hard drive where you can store most of the illegal things you download, like movies and music. The idea is that if the police comes, they won't find the illegal things on your computer. You will however need some place to hide the hard drive where the cops won't find it. It's rather big (about the size of a book), and your landlord would probably throw you out if you tried to saw a hole in the floor to hide it in. Where would you put it?

Okay, say you possibly have a warrant out for your arrest in California, but you're currently living in Texas. You didn't do anything particularly bad - you just have a lot of unpaid tickets. The car you drove in California is now back in your possession and you'd like to get all its stickers and such. If you have a warrant out for you, will you get in trouble when you take the car to get inspected? Will you get arrested in Texas for a mountain of unpaid tickets in California? On that note, how would you find out if you have a warrant out for you without actually getting arrested?
