The Futurama Xmas elves/Neptunians song.... the whole "We are free and fairly sober with so many toys to build, the machines are kind of tricky, probably someone will be killed...."
....had it in my head since YESTERDAY. X__X ARGH. Go figure I don't own THAT DVD with the episode so I can play it and get it outta my head.

And, CHRISTMAS! YAY! PRESENTS SOON! (I got one piece early; gorrrrrgeous sapphire earrings. n_n)

Didnt we have an off-topic forum before?

I think it was closed because of how 'odd' it got, or something.

Or...am I confusing this with another site?

EDIT: Just read the rules post.

Funny, as I clicked on it, I said to myself "I'm gonna feel really stupid if it is mentioned that there was once a forum like this before here" because I had just asked that question.

...okay, the feeling has passed.

This is the first time our state has gotten snow on Christmas in like 100-something years. :D I LOVE IT. =DDDDD
My sis caught 20 snowflakes in her mouth and made a mush(snow+grass) angel. XD
And we made a little snowman on my dad's truck. We named him Jimmy. But, sadly, Jimmy never made it past his first Christmas. :'( We were just standing there, being happy little children, and we heard a SPLAT. And Jimmy was a mushball on the ground. T^T And I tried to make a snow gravestone, but it turned up as a skull. ;~; So we're saying he committed suicide and layed the skull next to him.
R.I.P. Jimmy the midget snowman. What was so terrible about that truck? D:

Might be pregnant.....if i am this was to unplanned, unwanted, i'm scared what will happen if i tell my extremely strict mom......or what if it's all in the head and just by chance i'm sick?

I love how everyone is saying how the movie Inception is so original, etc, when its a blatant obvious copy of Paprika.

Might be pregnant.....if i am this was to unplanned, unwanted, i'm scared what will happen if i tell my extremely strict mom......or what if it's all in the head and just by chance i'm sick? All these things are just pestering me so....whats worse is the father is only 15 and i'm going to be 18. .-.

I had a scare like that when i was 15... ^^; So just stay strong. Go to Planned Parenthood and get checked, or buy a test at a store. If you stress yourself out over it, you'll end up delaying your period and stress yourself more. I thought i was pregnant once because i missed a period, and i had missed it because i was so stressed over it... don't do that to yourself!

Good luck CosplayCinema ^^ My sister went through something similar except the father left her and claimed it wasn't his baby. She unfortunately had a miscarriage.

For me that same sister is on my mind. I want to help her stop doing drugs and such, but I feel that if I do I'll lose her love.

Note to anyone looking at making tasty food stuffs: Buy those little canned potatoes. Paprika the hell out of them. Fry them. Also some salt n' pepper. NOM.

I feel very proud that my boyfriend survived Christmas day at my family's house with my aunt, two uncles,mother,grandmother,3 cousins and one with a child, and my sister. He did very well. Love dat boy I do.

On more than one occasion when I look around me and see friends smiling back I wonder how I ended up so lucky. All in all the past several years have turned out to be incredibly difficult in more ways than I care to imagine and discuss but somehow I've woken up and things have changed. My entire world is different and I don't always know what to do with it, like being in a constant dream state where your afraid to wake up and have lost everything. For being the girl who never minded being alone and going to prom dateless, for being the person who never needed friendship and always said being on my own was better I am suddenly surrounded by people that I adore. I've gone to bed and woken up a different me. I have to keep telling myself "It's no use going back to yesterday, I was a different person then"

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!

Slut-shaming? Here? That's never cool.
Just because a woman gets pregnant doesn't mean she's a slut. That's an extremely hateful word. Pregnancy scares are completely legitimate. If Cinema HAD been pregnant, it could have opened the door for a whole range of problems. And this is the "Off-Topic" forum. She can talk about whatever she likes. She came here for support, and she should be able to receive such support without someone judging her for it.

QFT

yes don't tal about anything sexual it was fine till she posted :/ leave it to pms it makes things easyer , i now shes coming here for support but still even tho is a off-tpoic forum thats the one thing u dont talk about. as i was told before "keep it ot yourself"

I'm breaking the rules by saying this. And i don't care. But you're an insensitive asshole. Admin, feel free to ban me for that, but it had to be said. She came in here to ask for advice and consolation. I've had pregnancy scares before... well, one. When i was younger. I was 15 or 16 (i don't remember). And honestly, it can really scare someone. I was crying, and reaching out to anyone i could. That's what she did. The cosplay.com community is usually outreaching and helpful, so she came here to ask for help. And, since this is the "Whatever Is On Your Mind" forum, she could ask for help here. The fact you're calling her a slut and etc for that... well, it makes you seem like you're 12, not 19. There's a reason you're still a virgin at 19. In order to get a girlfriend, you'll need to learn to treat women with respect. And you've just proved to everyone here why you're 19, single, and a virgin.

Admin, i fully accept all responsibility for what i've said, and feel free to ban me. It needed to be said.

And apologies to everyone here who dropped the topic. I just really felt like this was needed to be said. Everyone was thinking it.

My 7th grade crush (he was in 9th when I was in 7th) came to visit me this summer, I was sooo happy! My mom always thought we would grow up and get married, but I knew he was the kind of person that wasn't going to settle down with anybody, so we ended up being more like siblings. He's 45 and I'm 43 now, so it was sooo awesome to see him after 13 years of losing track of each other. We're still just the same people, just older and wiser. Too funny, we were school rejects, but I ended up with a PhD and he's semi-famous.

Well said, Axelai. And I appreciate what Flora88 said, too. Words like slut and whore only exist to shame and demean women. There are no equivalent words for men. When someone uses those words, it says nothing to me about the woman, only about the hateful attitude of the person using them.

No problem! To be honest, I feel bad that it didn't continue for a bit.
In the end, Cinema asked us to drop it. If she hadn't, I'm sure this would be thirty more pages of me explaining how damaging slut-shaming is. Lol!

Also, punches were pulled because of keroki neko's "suicidal" thing. I didn't want to further depress keroki neko in order to protect Cinema.

But thanks for jumping in there! And for taking responsibility for your actions. Very awesome. You've got huge ladyballs. :D

Axelai - I would quote you, but I'm not sure which part made me love you even more.

What's on my mind? Well, I'm trying to deal with a death threat, a rape accusation, and the possibility of loosing all my friends, all because of an ex. Makes me kind of not want to date anymore. Or cosplay, seeing as how she's also a cosplayer. And sort of kill myself. It's too bad that my therapist is off until next week, or I'd have a hell of a lot to talk about.

This relates to my first statement because not only do I agree with everything you said, Axelai, but it gives me a greater faith in humanity to see someone standing up for someone else. I don't get to see that a lot, and it's something that really made me feel better.

And none of this is off-topic, because I am saying what's on my mind.

Say no to babies!

Hell yes. Staunchly advocating being childfree here.

On an unrelated note, FUCK I hate the holiday hours at the mall. Working in it, I'd get an easier time if I joined the damn army. I've been so screwed up from the wonky schedule, frantic pace, noise, crowding, incompetent employees, lack of sleep and proper food and standing 12+ hours a day that since Xmas I've been downing peppermint and chamomile tea to try and relax my shattered nerves and stomach. My long-awaited New Year's holiday and visit to my boyfriend can't come any faster....

TTATT -relieved- i'm not pregnant....turns out the day i was ganna test i started my cycle

I'm totally late on this haha but that's great! :D

Just adding my own two cents that losing one's virginity or being sexually active does not equal being a slut. -.-; Went through a similar experience cause my period hasn't shown up for a month and I was panicking and the day after I tested negative, my period finally came two months after the last one. (It was also during the time I was being emotionally abused by my ex but that's a different story...) Unexpected pregnancies happen and I applaud for those being responsible for their actions instead of just doing the complete opposite (or glamorizing the hell out of them on TV ... I'm looking at you, Teen Mom. D:<

And now for something totally different: I have a cute singing voice! :D

In contrast to the pregnancy scare, when I was 17 I was about to be sued ( I was in a therapeutic high school, the problems everyone in your high school were like graham crackers compared((mmmm graham crackers))) anyway, this girl told her daddy who was a lawyer, that I got her pregnant. I had not. I could not, impossible. But we'll get to that later. Anyway. The school gets in a fuss, my parents keep trying to explain the truth, but this girls parents are blinded by dumbassery. The principal has an entire room, filled with her family, my family, and the teachers, to see if we can get this settled without the law. (at this point, I was taking it humorously, I had had enough anger earlier about it)

The teacher asks me, in front of everyone

"Did you get her pregnant?"

I laugh and say no. When everyone but my parents gets angry that I am laughing they demand to know why, and this is the clincher, the entire thing went great from here on. Her parents were dumbfounded (really? I mean your daughters in a school that has therapy every damn four hours, and her making crazy unfounded claims is unexpected??)

"I can't get her pregnant if I tried, and believe me, I wouldn't even try with her. I'm infertile. Born that way. I'm as empty as the desert"


Five months later, I paid the price for it. Since I was sterile, I opted for an operation on my down-theres to see if I had any viable sperm. Went through the surgery, got stitches, and bladidy blah blah. Went to school a week later, the girl calls me over, says she wants to apologize. What does she do instead?


Kicks me as hard as she can in the balls. three stitches rip and I go through all the pain of giving birth all in one moment, look down, see my pants turning red and black out.

Wake up in the hospital. Go back to school three weeks later. I am told we should sue. I wanted to, but we never actually did since no actual damage was done in the long term.

Saw the girl a year ago, when I was 22. Accidentally backed into her in a parking lot. She was walking.

True.

Generally, the $30 ones last me two to four months, whereas $10-$20 last less than a month.

While I kill headphones, I think I tend to be more careful with the more expensive ones. xD; My poor SkullCandy Headphones have lasted over four years, but they were over $50 & a Christmas present.

I'll probably end up buying them, just because I fell in love with the concept design they're based off when it was released.

An unofficial pardon? ...wtf does that even mean, legally?

Being in Slytherin doesn't mean you're evil. It means you're devoted and cunning.

I'm just wondering if things are going to work out with my new boyfriend since his brother hates me pretty much, thinks I'm weird and a nerd. (Though me and Josh like all the same things almost and have a good amount in common.) Cause I'm pretty worried his brother will try convincing him to leave me.

She doesn't believe that young people (our age) can get arthritis. She says it's because we're lazy and we don't go out much. *shakes head* She says Western doctors also lie so she doesn't take anything they recommend and then sit home and cry about her diabetes and arthritis and gout. >_<

I know how you feel. I had a boyfriend whose brother HATED me. Like, extreme hate. He would constantly tell my boyfriend to dump me for a "real girl". Hey, just because i had super short hair and was somewhat wearing the pants in the relationship doesn't make my two X chromosomes any less existent :'| But alas, said boyfriend actually yelled at the brother to shut up and that he didn't know anything. Score one for me XD

So if your new boyfriend really likes you, then he'll either ignore his brother or do the same thing. Don't worry c:

Though Axelai makes a good point, there is a flipside to this situation.
If, somehow, the brother convinces the entire family to hate you, you've got REAL problems. I had a boyfriend with whom I thought I was very much in love, and his family...God, they were such DICKS!
They were religious fanatics. They were actually convinced that I was the reincarnation of "Delilah" from the Bible (despite the fact that reincarnation is a non-Christian belief.)

*Looks at avatar.* Yeeeeaaahhhh...

They made my life miserable. I ended up dumping him--not because I didn't care for him--because his family was fucking crazy! I could not be expected to potentially live with those psychos for the rest of my life.

Moral of the story: Watch yourself. This could definitely work for you in the long run, but if shit starts to look more bad than good, bail the fuck out. You won't regret it for long.

You get angry at me and call me disrespectful, disobedient and shameful for not killing the damned thing because I questioned your superior, moral authority? I mean, come on, Mom. I'll kill it.

What's on my mind:
1)Convincing my dad to let me go to AX 2011 and the Midwest because I can fly out there to meet him when AX is over. I don't want to be left out of my friends for a year more than I already am.
2)I'm in Color Guard and I have to learn Rifle to be on the Advanced Saber line. I'm terrified of rifles, and cry whenever I pick one up. I have to learn flourishes and tosses.
3)My mom might take us to court again, and even though I'm liberated, I need stuff from my mom that I can't get from my dad 'cause we're underprivileged.
4)I'm afraid that no one likes me because everyone is drifting away it seems, even though I have a couple of good friends (Like Courtney and Meghan when she's not around the 2) but... the people I've known talk behind my back, and I know it seems stupid, but I'm afraid of abandonment.
5)I need to think up some good New Year's resolutions. I only have two: Lose weight, and get a partner.
6)School is stressing me out.
7)I need to stop ranting, because I know this is getting too long, and I'm just complaining with all of that Teenage Angst, but I thank everyone that'll read this because you're listening, and that's all some people ever really need in life.

Anyone that considers smuggling an animal, and believes they will treat it with respect, I find hard to believe they know the meaning of the word respect.

Supporting illegal acquisition of animals, inevitably, INEVITABLY supports animal cruelty, down the line.

If you respect typically non-domesticated animals, leave them in the wild.

I've considered getting myself a wolf. But I'd do it right.
I'm an animal activist, and if I have any way of acquiring a wolf legally, I'll do it immediately. Because I know how gentle and trusting wolves can be.
I was 11 when I had new neighbors and they had this giant 'dog' named 'Ranger.' He was my best friend, and I thought that he was mostly Malamute with a little bit of wolf mixed in.
Then I learned he was pure bred, and I never forgot him.

For reference, they're not illegal in the US. Just California and possibly other states.

@Axelai: Adding to that, certain laws do vary between states. Regarding to pets, if they're not considered "pets" by the state of California then they're automatically illegal to have one as such. For Cali's case, I assume it's because of the big cities that can be harmful environment for the more exotic pets.

... And this just reminds me of Pets 101 from Animal Planet. They made mentions of Long Beach City College being overrun by abandoned pet rabbits that decided to multiply. o__o

I have a friend who moved from Colorado (hedgie legal state) to Arizona (hedgie not legal state) and she didn't think it was a huge deal to quietly bring a few hedgies and tenrec with her. Well... someone ratted her out and she ended up being arrested and charged on both state and federal level, and while she avoided jail time, the fines were ginormous and now she has a record that says she's a federal criminal, when she'd never been in trouble before in her life! She said it was beyond not worth it. :(

@Axelai: Adding to that, certain laws do vary between states. Regarding to pets, if they're not considered "pets" by the state of California then they're automatically illegal to have one as such. For Cali's case, I assume it's because of the big cities that can be harmful environment for the more exotic pets.

... And this just reminds me of Pets 101 from Animal Planet. They made mentions of Long Beach City College being overrun by abandoned pet rabbits that decided to multiply. o__o

In Cali, a lot of the animal rules have to do with the fear that they'll affect agriculture or native species if they get loose. Which doesn't really explain why ferrets who have been spayed/neutered aren't permitted.
Hedgehogs are currently illegal in CA, VT, GA, HI, AZ, ME (though, they may have permits now), and PA. And in NYC and a few of the counties around it (there, largely due to animal dumping). A lot of the times, if animals are seized in these states, the animal is euthanized, in addition to the consequences for the owner. Definitely not cool. And one of the reasons I live in the middle of nowhere, KS. The only animal law here that annoys me is I can't have chickens in my yard because I live in the city limits, so I have two tiny chickens who live indoors, LOL.

I've considered getting myself a wolf. But I'd do it right.
I'm an animal activist, and if I have any way of acquiring a wolf legally, I'll do it immediately. Because I know how gentle and trusting wolves can be.
I was 11 when I had new neighbors and they had this giant 'dog' named 'Ranger.' He was my best friend, and I thought that he was mostly Malamute with a little bit of wolf mixed in.
Then I learned he was pure bred, and I never forgot him.
I miss Ranger because they moved away.

If you were an 'animal activist' (and by this I am guessing you are someone who probably says they like cute, fuzzy animals, and probably still eats them and wears them), you would understand that a wolf is not a domestic animal. I knew someone who bought a dog that was mostly wolf, and she was so wild her entire life that she had to be contained in a large outdoor cage, which was not at all appropriate for her. She was sweet with those she trusted, but she never forgot her instincts to run wild, nor should she have been made to. The dogs we have now are domestic because thousands of years ago they chose to work together with humans.
Wouldn't you rather be in a mutually beneficial relationship than a master/slave one? If not, get a dog.

For reference, they're not illegal in the US. Just California and possibly other states.

Mostly, my original post was made in jest. I highly doubt she'd give me one of those critters. And besides, they ARE domesticated. Just illegal in Cali. Like ferrets.

Whether or not they're illegal, hedgehogs are not pets. They are NOT domesticated, they are raised in captivity. There is a distinct difference. For you to obtain one and literally enslave it just because you think it's cute, says a lot about you as a person.

Anyone that considers smuggling an animal, and believes they will treat it with respect, I find hard to believe they know the meaning of the word respect.

Supporting illegal acquisition of animals, inevitably, INEVITABLY supports animal cruelty, down the line.

If you respect typically non-domesticated animals, leave them in the wild.

I'd rather smuggle an animal then a person into the states :o

Oh they can be so bad! I had them running around the week before Christmas, and the white one (Arwen) decided that she wanted to investigate the ceramic nativity set. She knocked over a few of the Wise Men and broke the hand and thumb off of one of them. Nothing that can't be fixed with superglue but she got put away after that.

Funny thing is, she hasn't gone near the nativity before or since. Just that one day when she had to investigate...

Yeah, it is serious business, being responsible for another living creature, especially if you plan to get it by taking it out of its natural habitat and forcing it to live unnaturally under your roof.
As for the rabbit, I hope she does her research; they involve a lot of care and have special dietary needs.

It's WAY more illegal to smuggle humans into the state. I'd rather have my chance with a pet than a person....I have nothing against Illegals....my father was one till he married my mom and a few of my classmates are illegals as well.

I had two turtles that were from Mexico :3 they were smuggled here when i got them they were like...small enough that they were inside a large 7/11 cup together and still had moving space.

You said you were joking once or twice after the fact, seemingly out of pressure. Being that I dedicate a good portion of my life to animal rights (and not in an armchair activist way), I take statements about illegally smuggling wild animals into your home fairly seriously.

You seem not to be understanding WHY the animals are illegal. It's because they're either endangered or they shouldn't be pets. I doubt the poor turtles you had lived long.

I think you're still missing my point. Forget legal or illegal. SHOULD this animal be a pet? In my mind, the only appropriate pets are dogs, cats, and sometimes horses or other such species that are now dependent upon us. I don't think it's right to take an animal out of its natural habitat simply so we can enjoy having it in our possession. That's my point.

It's a turtle.... .-.

Dogs and cats didn't start as pets.....they were trained in early life and bred by humans to be PETS Horses weren't always pets either.

Horses ran the plains and were domesticated by humans long ago so that man could travel greater distances in a short amount of time. We made horses dependent on us but there are still wild horses in the world who don't need humans. Like the horses in Montana who live on a reserve and roam freely and do as they please.

Oh, so, 'it's a turtle', meaning it can't feel pain? Good luck with that mentality. White people used to think that of their black slaves. No, I'm not overexaggerating.

Yes, I know that humans domesticated dogs, horses, and cats, that's my point. They are dependent on us, so it's okay to have them as pets. Not reptiles.

Actually you are over exaggerating. :/

We don't hit the turtles, we don't throw them around, kick them or anything. They have really nice heating lamps to keep their water nice and warm, they have good food, clean water, and a nice habitat to live in. You can rant on and make me seem like i'm some sort of mental patient for having a turtle or something. Your choice, i'm sticking with it that everything has at one point been domesticated. People all over have turtles, it's not illegal, its not harming the creature if you can take the steps to ensure that it has a good home, shelter, food, water, exercise and such.

I'll admit there are some creatures that should never be kept as pets and those would be the Lion Fish, the Puffer Fish, Piranha or the snake head and such pets like that, a king cobra, rattle snake, any kind of spider or scorpion. Things like that, I wouldn't get one personally...i'm a scared of things like that.

I'm not accusing you of blatant cruelty. Again, in my mind, keeping an animal against its will is a cruelty of its own. You took an animal out of its natural environment so you could have it in your possession. You didn't have to, you just wanted to.

As i said i never took it on my own, i never thought to have a turtle till it was gifted to me and even then i kept them no longer than five months. Do you think ANY animal wants to be taken from their home? My dog chose to be with me, i didn't force him, we got him from an abusive family when he walked up to me and tried to follow me home.

Besides Ozzy the Turtle didn't seem to be all that unhappy being a pet. Besides the turtles were got at a pet store in mexico not from their home, they aren't that cruel.

And i'd appreciate it if you stopped ranting your animal rights things to me, do you speak to the animals and get this information from them? If you want to rant about how animals feel make a forum from it, but i can make sure of this i'm done on this subject cause nothing you say will change my mind on views of animals.

You don't have to accept education, that's your prerogative.
