Yahoo! Answers

(and to continue spamming posts on a Wednesday afternoon...)

So, I've been saying I was going to post about Yahoo! Answers, and now I am!

For anyone not familiar with the service, in a nutshell, people ask questions, and other people answer them! I thought Yahoo! was pretty smart originally for coming up with this (I realize other sites have similiar services). Anyway, in the years since it came out it's kinda gone down hill. But I frequently answers all sorts of questions on there. I come accross everything from physics problems to dating advice to maritial issues to politics and religion to, well, just about everything. Most questions I see are not very intelligent.
Anyway, I'm just going to list a bunch of them. And don't forget to keep in mind: these are REAL questions REAL PEOPLE are turning to other REAL PEOPLE on the INTERNET for help with.

I'm addicted! (to answering them)

I'll even number them so if you want to say something about them it'll be easy!
And I'll put it behind a Cut for everyone who doesn't care! :)

  11. how can i make eye contact when i go out without staring or miss percieving a threat? if i look at another?
    man and i look away because i feel scared, because im afraid to hold eye contact, i feel as though hes taken control and made me feel afraid, then it triggers a rage outburst and the urge to act really scared of this, because i dont want to get into trouble, but im angry and enraged that i can never hold eye contact, because i try desperatly to be condfident and in control, but then when another guy looks at me, my eyes lock, and i feel compelled to stare until he looks away, but i can never do it, and i always end up looking away, i percieve a threatening situation and dont no how to handle it, so then i have a rage outburst, and have been very lucky in the past, not to ruin my life. so because of this now, i wont go out because im scared ill flip, and do something i regret..
    i have bpd, but i just wanna feel in control of my life and confident to look where i want, not afraid to hold eye contact, because then i feel, ive lost control, and theyve taken it from me

It's good to hear them laugh, but I hate simplifying for them. Is this covered under any mental conditions.

    Sorry in advance for the mistakes and for writing so wirr warr but it would have taken even longer if I would have written it all correctly, so I hope yo understand it.
    A friend of mine told me about her life and I really don't want ot talk about it, but that's why I'm doing this anoym.
    She grew up only with mom and grandma. So I assume her first years were ok then, her mother got arrested because her insurance stamp on the car wasn't valid when she was 5. Her mom came out 2 days later and got community service. A year later they moved to florida then a year later back to the california ( the daughter got sent with a box to make money and was said to say she needs it for her school as a donation). Her mom got arrested again and this time because she never had done her community service because she forgot it as she moved to florida. The daughter came in a foster family, then her grandma kidnapped her from the foster family and then hid. After a while they found her and she came back in fostercare then her grandma kidnapped her again. And hey hid after a while they found the mom and arrested her (because they thought she kidnapped her) but the daughter and grandma hid. Then 2 years later they found the grandma and kid and took the kid to a childs home and arrested the grandma. Then a year later the family sent the kid to europe where the family is actually from and where there relative were. And Mom and grandma were still in jail after a year and a half the grandma came out because the mom took all charges on her although she didn't kidnapp the kid. The grandma went to the country where the kid was and the mom went to prison for another 1 and half years (so she was in jail/prison for 3 years altogether) meanwhile the kid was by relatives as the grandma came they started making problems etc. so then they sent the kid to a childs home in the other country. Then a year later she finally got to live with her grandma and a couple month later her mom came. they lived normal for a while but the mother started drinking really badly and getting abusive etc. then they moved from apartment to apartment in that country. Then when she was 15 she and her mom started travelling all around europe and also slept in a car sometimes.. and with 16 moved to london and has a normal life (from what I know) and her mom stopped drinking and that was it ..
    for example she already had her first boyfriend with 10 at her relatives then at 13 she feel in love and had a boyfriend until she was 15 and it broke her heart, so she started cutting her wrist.
    But she didn't have sex yet, hates to drink, doesn't smoke etc. She herself seems to be a really good girl though and beautiful really beautiful as well, hard to believe after all she's gone through....
    And there still are a lots of details but if I tell every detail it's to much to write and to much to think about as well.. because the details are even worse then the main facts.

  21. Is She Right or Am I?
    Okay my mom tends to counsel me on relationships. In her opinon she thinks its trashy/hoe-ish that i tend to get with guys ive barely known for a couple of weeks and not last more than a month with them.To me its not really that bad because its not like im going to get TO serious with them from the begging. I mean hey if we get serious on the way then we do so what. But she counsels me like im going to marry the dude or something and i hate it. Right now shes going on about my current bf Alex (Not his name). Because ive only talkd to him for about 2 weeks then got with him. In her view you have to know the person for more than 2 months before you "Get With" them. But seriously is some guy really gunna wait two or three months for you? I say just go for it from the begging.
    Anyone have ani point of view they would like to share or any advice?

  23. Is the Mormon faith a scam?
    The story behind the Mormon faith sounds way too far fetched, how did this become a religions?!
    so he found a "tool" to translate a scripture, then when his translation was hidden and he was asked to re translate he got angry and went to the woods to pray (think really) he came back and said "god was angry about this" and said he would translate a different doctrine, it was pretty much the same but a little different.
    I'm mean if it was true he could have just re translated exactly the same instead of going to the woods to think of a lye, then coming back with this load of cr*p story. When looking into how this religion was created it's pretty obvious it's a lye.

  26. My little doggie has a leg
    My dog's a Pomeranian mix. She fell from about 1 and a half feet from the ground outside yesterday. After that she wouldn't use her hind right leg. Today she still won't use it; she hops around on 3 legs.
    I've looked up things on dog leg injuries and they all say just wait to see if it gets better.
    She is 6 years old and I'm wondering if she'll be okay. I can move the leg and she only yelps if I move it in a certain direction. I know she's not in serious condition because she still eats and drinks.
    Can I wrap it or bandage it to help it heal?

  29. Should i visit him in jail?
    I have been talking to this guy for a long time and we recently had been talking about getting together and dating. But, unfortunately one night when he was out with the guys he got arrested due to little stupid decisions he made. Nothing serious. He was arrested at 3:00 in the morning and called me at 4:00 AM on the inmate collect call phones. Unfortunately i was sleeping and missed the call. So, i am not completely sure it was him who called me, but i don't know anyone else in jail and i have no way to find out who exactly it was. My point is that i can't call him back because of the inmate phone system, so should i go visit him on visiting hours? Or is that too forward being that we're not dating?

  30. List the reasons liberals are obsessed with sex and abstinence?
    I thing libs are obsessed with sex and sexual scandal. I believe in family responsibility. Yes I am a Christian and guess what sex is a part of my life. I enjoy it and I expect my children to enjoy it also in a good marriage. I do not expect them to stay abstinent, but I think it is a good idea. This is really simple. You pay to play. You drive a car and wreck it you pay the damage. You cause a pregnancy you pay for 18 or more years at the least. Sex with strangers is as dangerous as licking a toilet seat. Why not just be responsible to yourself and your family. Stop making this so complicated, people have sex so what, its a responsibility just like any other. No one goes to the bathroom on the side walk and then claims they have the freedom to do so. Why, because it is a responsibility to the health and Hygiene of others to use a bathroom.
