What?! Unless we're thinking about completely different movies...the Last Unicorn wasn't that scary - I loved it as a kid, and still do!

Do I just live in an incredibly unrepresentative area?

What's your socio-economic background? Minorities and those of lower socioeconomic statuses are disproportionately affected by obesity rates. So it is entirely possible you live in an unrepresentative area.  

The Lounge Taking Notes on the News Oct 11 2009
20:01 (UTC)

Out of curiosity, why are you taking notes on the news? If I ever needed to remember something from the news, locally, nationally, or globally, I'd probably just Google it online and be able to find it. It seems, as you pointed out, kind of pointless.

If you're trying to retain the information by using tactile learning methods, then maybe you can employ highlighters as you're reading, or taking notes in the margins of newspapers. Or, try discussing what you read immediately afterwards with someone else. That will usually do the trick for me.

Yay!  A Churchy asking the questions she should have been asking all along!  You've made my day!Laughing

Wait till you get into comparative religion and you find out that all the biblical myths have been "done" before by other gods predating the Christian god(s).  Exciting stuffs!

 I already  know about other religions that are crazy Zoroastrianism

and I was never "churchy" but I do believe.

Cararie and Biatchita : yall really gave some helpful advice and some good things to think about so thanks.

And Jackattack..I dont think it is technology and spread of info that is making people disbelieve, its the now adays socity rule that its okay to have lots of sex, drink, do drugs, blah blah. THey'd rather live that FUN life then have to follow rules in the bible. But sex drink and drugs doesnt bring anything good to your life long term like God can

But I dont want to turn this into a big religion debate.

Morality exists without the Bible, God, or 'belief'. I opt not to 'have lots of sex, drink [irresponsibly], do drugs, etc' without following a book. I'm not turning this into a religion debate, but it seems like you're generalizing atheists/agnostics as such, and that's just incorrect.

So I transferred to a Methodist College where classes on the Old Testament is required the first semester and class on the New Testament is required in the second semester.

The more I read the bible and the more it is exapliend to me by my teacher, the more I am questioning

Education is all about questioning and the inquisitive mind. So I'm glad the college is getting you thinking into about this stuff. 

The Lounge Proof: Friends aren't always friends Oct 06 2009

It's not bad, and nor is it terribly addictive either. I've had ones at a fair where they dipped entire slices of bacon into chocolate, and also the Vosges ones where there were just bits of bacon in a bar. 

Calorie wise, they're not aren't that bad for you. I imagine it's no worse than eating just plain chocolate. 

Fried oreos, now that's a fair food I can get behind :D

Original Post by splitrail:

Cash just strikes me as being a rather crass gift.

Better to actually buy the drugs and wrap them up nicely.  It shows that you really put some thought into it.

You think that by itself is crass? I got e-vited to a graduation party where it explicitly said: "Cash donations are preferred over presents.
If you are unable to come, but would still like to send a present, my address is as follows: XXXXX" I'm not even that close to her!

 It's made me gain weight, too, sadly.  I have to watch it everynight with a big bowl of popcorn, instead of going to the gym or taking the dog for a long walk.  

I load up my favorite shows on my iPod and jump on the elliptical as I watch them. Best way to work out without continuously staring at the clock!

I'll have to keep it in mind to listen. I realize I sometimes fall into the trap of continuously firing off questions. 

Thanks for the great advice, everyone :)!

Original Post by anonomyss:

I think I have personality problems. I've takin online test after online test (and not facebook or myspace..but from websites that have info on disorders and ask questions..similar to ones I have takin before at a physicatrists office). and they all say I have this and that and that. Like I said, I've been to a pshyciatrist before but that was court ordered when I was 15.

From someone who has dabbled in mental health studies, just about anyone and everyone will fulfill the reqs for some kind of DSM-IV diagnosis. They have a lot of disorders in there.

And you think you're not normal, but a lot of 20-year-olds experience the same things you feel. A friend of mine, around your age, is amongst the most cheerful, fun, outgoing people I know, and he sees a therapist. So relax, your feelings of being 'not normal' is actually...quite normal.
