I'm not ruling out rape in the PAW. If I'm going to have a baby, most likely it'll be because of rape. So let's face it, Darwins theory of evolution, the fittest survive. If I die, or my baby dies, then thats the end of that, the next generation will be stronger. If I survive, then cool beans, my bl...

Beans, beans, and more beans. Not only are they good for you, but they taste awesome. (well, for me at least) Lentiles and rice are good ideas too. For a snack or breakfast, I would get some of those 'fruit to go' things...those are too damn awesome.

I just carry around eye/ear drops with me everywhere. Ear infections can seriously hurt if it gets to serious. And who wants to lose an eye? In the Paw, you would probably have to remove it and just put on an eye patch or something.

I light my shoe polish on fire for just a bit to liquify the polish before I use it. That stuff burns really well, I wonder if you even need the candle wax if there's still a bit of polish in the tin. Has anyone lit a can of polish to see how long it burns for? The problem with lighting shoe polish...

Re: Killing People, Bad. Not Killing them- Good?

What if they are really annoying? Would it be less O.K. or more O.K.? I'm just joking- I too still subscribe to the killing people is bad philosophy. Though Fighting Christmas crowds at Wal-Mart has made me wonder if it's time to rethink that. :) *shudders* I work in retail...so imagine how I feel ...

You can get parafin wax at beauty supply stores the cheepest but they often will only sell to a licensed professional. If you have a "close friend" that is a hairdresser though you are in luck. No way! I got my paraffin wax from my corner store dude. A big box of it for like three bucks. You should...

This is exactly what boy scouts do, only they use a tuna can and a #10 can for the griller. I think the shoe polish can is great cause its got a lid, which makes it less messy. Instead of candle wax, you can also use paraffin. Its cheaper and you get more of it. Also, once the burner dies out, you c...

I like Orson Scott Card. And for the record, everyone lets something get to their head, so I think it's unfair to judge. I've only read two of his books, but Empire doesn't seem like a book i'd buy, might borrow it from work once my final exam is finished though...haven't made up my mind.

I'd have to say other. I havent read any of those so, It wouldnt be fair if i recomended one. Personally I would recomend Enders Game (because it seems like you enjoy Sci-fi, and that one is my favorite) If it was me, I would buy them all, and read them all (one by one). If it seems interesting, the...

Re: Undercover leg, arm weights?

Does anyone know of leg weights one could wear under their work/street clothes? I was thinking how easy it would be to get a work out (ok work out-ish) while going about my normal duties. Thing of it is the stuff I found online all looked either medical or like an 80's legging. And none appeared to...
