Oddness!

Dec. 13th, 2012 | 09:19 pm
posted by: joospjos in ask_me_anything

I went down to my storage room to leave some stuff and noticed someone had left me a note which said they had stolen my guitar. They said the guitar didn't seem to have an owner so they "borrowed" it but would give it back to me if I wanted to. The note was signed with a name and a phone number which seems to be correct. I don't use a lock so I've always expected something to go missing eventually (the things that end up in my storage room are never of any real value) but I'm a bit annoyed at the nerve of the note writer! By my reasoning, the guitar was clearly in MY storage room, which means I own it. It is an unspoken rule in my apartment complex that the things that are left in the hallways are OK to take but you don't steal from the storage rooms. I don't really WANT the guitar back because I can't play the guitar and I have lost my urge to learn (plus I bought it for £10). But at the same time I feel like telling off the notewriter for taking it without asking first (he could have just rung my doorbell and asked if he could have it!!).

Do you think the note writer's reasoning makes sense?
Should I tell him off for taking stuff from my storage room even if I don't want the guitar back?

Last night, I stumbled on a website about the Men's Rights Movement.  While I haven't swallowed the red pill quite yet, I confess they have some interesting concepts.

(warning, long personal TL;DR ahead)

Some observationsCollapse )

Curious to hear what others think about the MRM.

I'm not all about sex but this is something I've been thinking about for awhile. I've been thinking about different colored sex belts like they do in martial arts. The colors and explanations are as follows:

White = Virgin of course
Yellow = Virgin with carnal knowledge and maybe some experiance
Rainbow = Gay & Lesbian
Pink, Blue & Violet = Bisexual
Brown = Anal
Black & Blue = Bondage & Domination

I would wear a yellow belt sorry for taking up so much space.

So what's your color?

Robertson said, "Because of the bad road conditions the Almighty has made, any gay activities that people were planning on doing will have to be postponed by a day or two."__ Additionally, he argued, God shut down major airports in the New York area "so that people who were hoping to fly to do something of a gay nature would have to take a train or a bus, so it might be days before the gay thing they were going to do could occur."

So, did the snow stop you from going out and doing something gay?

strange hair-hook things in feet

posted by: daisycake in ask_me_anything

today my mother asked me to take a look at the bottom of her foot because she thought she had a splinter or blister or something. i looked and there was a black hair about an inch and a half long stuck there. it was kind of thick, like it came from a dog or something. i pulled on it and she yelled out OW! the "hair" that came out had a weird hook-like thing that had been stuck IN her foot. but it was flimsy. um, it looked like this:



there was no resistance or anything; i know it wasn't a hair growing out of her. it just slipped out.

her foot feels much better now.

any idea what the fuck it was? :/ sorry this question is so poorly worded XD

 About a week and a half ago I was driving home and I came to a stop sign, there was a woman crossing the street so I waited for her to cross first. She was about 45 year old white woman, short, short permed hair and a little overweight. Well she ended up waving at me and walking to my car. She then asked if I could give her a ride home and that she lived not far away.

She gets in and says its only 2 stop signs up. At this point I am thinking "wtf? this bitch can't walk 2 blocks?". I get to the stop sign she wants out at and she is like "Do you want a blowjob?' "because yer cute"

I was like "uh.. no but thanks for offering" and then she tried to open my car door but the handle is sometimes broke and she was stuck in my car and I had to get out and let her out. She then said "bye blowjob" and I got back in my car and as I was driving away I saw 2 kids and thought "Shit, what if she thinks they are cute?"

So my question is. Have you ever gave someone a ride home who you didn't know and been offered some kind of sexual favor by that person?

Hi everyone

I know that this is a question community and I probably shouldn't post on AMA proper, but this is important. It's been brought to my attention that there are people out there that are insinuating I am Red or made Red up or some bullshit like that. Well, I didn't. I would believe that from the countless videos, pictures, posts, and people that I've met online, this would be clear. But just in case it's not, I'm pretty sure that you can look through all of the IP's that Red, Simon, or I may have had. Also, Red was in my home just last week from Wednesday to Sunday. I don't have pictures of myself with her but I do have pictures of Aidan, my son, right next to her that can be verified by any images or videos she may have on the Internet still.

From April of 2008, through May of 2009, I got to know what I thought was a really great man. I told him things that I had never told anyone else, and I'm not the only one that did this, either. A lot of people in AMA trusted Simon with many things that looking back on they probably shouldn't have. From the moment he 'died' up until just today, I got to know and care for and trust Red as well because she was the only link I had left to Simon. Yes, there were things that weren't adding up, but I took my time making sure that I wasn't jumping the gun on anything, because who the fuck would think ANYONE would make up another person and deceive anybody, let alone a full community with hundreds of people in it? Once I got my information, I started doing research and eventually let people like Alex (TMA) in on it so he could help me and ensure that I wasn't making a terrible mistake. If I could take back anything that happened, I would. I'm so very sorry for the people that were hurt, and to those of you that helped me last May and sent me books and gifts for my son and things like that. But I would never EVER do something this unbelievably cruel. If you believe that I could, then you really haven't gotten to know me at all, and if there's anyone out there that is an open book, it's me.

So, in the light of this being Ask Me Anything, if you have any questions, or any accusations, I urge to ask them here, so they can be addressed and not speculated about while I'm not around instead.

I also want to say that I know people were wondering why there was never a meet up or anything while she was here, but she was only in town from Thursday to Sunday morning. I had classes, a son, and everything else to take care of plus other plans. We went to the Orlando Science Center, Disney, and the beach on the three days she was here plus when I had classes and stuff. This, along with the fact that Catie and Carrie are pretty far away from where I live. And they have school, and work, and their own lives, too. It's not like they were particularly close to Red, anyway.

When eating colored candies (M&Ms, Skittles, Necco wafers, etc.), do you have a special way of eating them, or do you just grab a handful?

I usually try and make sure that each bite has one of each color. If I get down to the last few pieces and cannot include every color because I've run out of one or some colors, I'll eat them in rainbow order. For candies that have brown (like M&Ms) or white (like Necco wafers) pieces, I eat in rainbow order and then go to the non-rainbow colors and eat them from light to dark.

I like getting seasonal bags of candies because the limited colors make eating easier for me. I just got some Valentine's Day (woo, clearance!) M&Ms and there were only 4 colors as opposed to 6. Much easier.

Have you ever experienced sore TOES?

My big toes in particular are almost constantly aching. When it is a dull ache, it just feels as if the knuckles need to be popped. When it it throbbing pain, it feels like my toe is dislocated and needs to be snapped back into place.

I have bunions - Could this be part of the problem?

Obviously I need to see a podiatrist, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this bizarre toe pain and what I could possibly do to temporarily alleviate it?

A somewhat long and involved question about alternate realities and time travel

For this scenario, this is how it works: Of course this is all speculative verging on fantastical...Collapse )

Would you be able to settle back into your former life? Would you be able to accept this family as your own? Or would you just keep jumping through universes until you found one worth retiring in?

If you DID keep jumping through universes, would you act kindly or would the knowledge that these people are "just alternates" lift those moral restrictions? After all, for every time you choose to exploit the natives, there will be an infinite number of versions of you who didn't. Likewise, if you're even slightly prone to exploit somebody, there will be an infinite number of versions of you who did.

Oh my! Do you think it would be possible for alternate versions of you to run into each other? How awkward would that be?

After a mishap with a shrink ray, you stumble upon a vast insect kingdom. In the high court, you make a few cross-cultural blunders and have offended the monarch. Though well known for his ferocity and cunning on the battlefield, he is a mild-mannered and merciful ruler. Instead of lighting your sorry ass on fire, he gives you a less painful option for punishment...spend one week as a personal servant to a family of black garbage flies, or a family of cockroaches. The "people" of the insect kingdom are a very touchy-feely-huggy populace, and are quick to embrace newcomers, so your skin will most certainly be coming in contact with these creatures. Also, any attempt at killing these insects will result in your execution by a swarm of chomping mandibles.

In a nutshell, do you spend a week as a personal slave in a domicile with a group of large flies or a group of large cockroaches? For this exercise, we're going to assume that there are no language barriers. Or that shrink rays really work.

You're broke.
You really, really need 20 $.
Your cute friend lends you 20 $. You say: "I'll pay you back ASAP." You spend it on whatever you needed it for.
You take a walk in the park. You're clumsy, so you trip and fall. You start panicking because you think you broke your leg. But then something catches our eye and all thoughts of a broken leg disappear because you see... 40 $.
You're happy because now you'll be able to pay back to your friend and you'll still have some money for yourself.
But on your way back home, in some shop, you see something you really like. It costs 30 $. You hear some woman saying that she's going to buy it tomorrow, because she doesn't have money right now. You'll get money too, but in two weeks.
So what do you do? Do you buy it or do you pay the money back to your friend?

P.S. I hope all this made sense.
