Mr. F
Leave the crow be, you'll only get yourself infected with some nasty diseases.

Wait for the 3DS. The release date is only a couple of months from now. DSi XL's (and regular DSi's, too) are a good purchase, but if you can choose between something that is soon to be outdated, or something that is the newest, coolest gadget ever, what would you pick?

Should I open an Art shop here? I know it says Fan Art, but I do more than just fan art, are those things usually successful or what? Though I won't get paid, I think it'll still be good practice for doing art for clients and such, but I'm not sure if I should bother.

It really does come down to your choice. If you'd be willing to do a lot of artistic stuff for people around these forums, then it would be a great idea for people to get art and for you to practise. Something unique that would be liked by everyone could also make you quite popular. I say you should give it a go and see what happens from there. ;D

Air Dawn says:
It's not.
Do your research.
LB says:

Yes.

You dirty heretic.
Air Dawn says:
The origin of Halloween is when priests were having rituals involving spirits.
LB says:

Fill me with your unsurpassable knowledge
Air Dawn says:
It is believed that ghosts will return to Earth, so the priest, known as Celts, held sacred rituals burning crops and animal sacrifices. They even wear costumes during these rituals.

...Awkward. But yeah, that's the best thing to do in these situations in general. Other than that, just avoid the topic. To be honest, some of that sounds tongue in cheek, anyway.


"Some of that"? It is clearly one hundred percent tongue in cheek. Kid needs to lighten the **** up.

Practice, do stretching exercises like every day for several minutes, keep your self in the split position for a while so your body gets used to it and over time it will be much easier to do and it will allow you to go further. Same for the back & shoulders, stretch and hold that stretch, don't over do it, don't break yourself.

So me and this girl that basically completes and makes me happy and the other day i told her that she's my best friend. ever since then she started to take a more of a interest in my life and been responding to text and facebook messages a lot quicker. and pretty soon after a long time in get her to hang out and it might be one on one knid of thing that i been trying to get forever. I like her more then a friend but i found it easier to go this very close friend and not be one those guys that just want to get into her pants. if me and her would hang out one on one what should we do?

Just play it by ear. Ask her what she’d like to do say some of your ideas and go off of that. If you do want to start something with her see how doing stuff together goes and tell her you have feelings for and see how it goes. She may return them she may not, but not saying anything and her not liking you back is not getting together either way. So apart from a little pain you got nothing to lose by her not returning the feelings.

L.F.D.

Not sure if this goes in the relationship thread thread or this.
Well, anybody remember me baww about that one girl that I messaged a lot and she told me to back the f*ck off? Well, she's my girlfriend, yesterday was our one week anniversary. Mind you we're both 14. We've taken it slow, only hugs, hold hands, put arms around each other, that kinda stuff. Prolem.

Her parents says she can't date til' she's 16. She hasn't told them about us yet, but my parents are pretty fine with it. Anybody care to explain why they're doing this, and the solution?

I still constantly message her on facebook, texting, that stuff. How to stop this addiction? And about half the time she doesn't even respond, I make sure I don't text her during her busy days (She has dance, and we both take marching band).

well. k.

I need to ask for some advice on behalf of a friend irl here.

Basically, just yesterday, he officially became a father. Which is nice for him, he's pretty happy about having a kid and all that, but there are some serious problems. The first is that he's only 16. The second is that he never told his parents that his girlfriend was pregnant right up until she went into labour, so they are absolutely furious at him. As far as I know, they won't even let him live at home right now; he's currently living at his girlfriend's house, and her parents pretty much hate him too right now so he can't really stay for long. The third is that he has no real money, no parents will help him out, and no job.

He's called me several times asking for advice, ranting, etc. I actually went to see him yesterday a few hours after the baby was born, and I want to be able to help him decide what he should do now.

Which is my question; what advice would you give him on what to do now?

well. k.

It kinda belongs in both, but I'd say relationship thread cuz it's about relationships.

Anyway.

My parents were the same way. There is no way to 'fix it'. They're her parents, and I'm sure they have their reasons for not wanting her to date (maybe they don't think she's old enough, or mature enough, or responsible enough, or that they don't trust any potential boyfriends). I don't know for sure, but my parents said that these were their reasons, so perhaps one or more could apply to this girl's parents, too.

That said, sneaking around won't solve anything. You're only 14, and you've only been going out for a week. If you get caught, she'll be in HUGE trouble, you might get canned, and then she'll be even "BUSIER" than before, because she might get grounded, have her phone/laptop taken away, etc.

Like you said, you've only been going out a week, but I can't help feeling like you're too into her. The reason she doesn't respond is because she's busy, or simply because you're trying WAY TOO HARD. Just calm down. Involve yourself in after-school activities or hang with friends to take your mind off of her. You're already in marching band, so that's a step in the right direction. Messaging her constantly will only get you dumped faster, because it really makes you look like a creep.

Honestly, it may just be your raging teenage hormones, so half this stuff probably won't even get through to you. If she's been telling you to f*ck off but suddenly accepts you, I'm not sure she's really all that into you anyway.

Which is my question; what advice would you give him on what to do now?

The best advice in these cases is usually preventative, but he's already dropped that ball. Pun not intended. This kid has made so many mistakes. =s

He's just sixteen, so there's still a lot of potential for him. First things first, he definitely should not drop out of school. If he can get a job and handle schoolwork at the same time, it's the best thing. If he can only handle one, it needs to be school, because that'll make it all easier for the remaining 60 years of his life, baby or not.

Otherwise, teens - especially those without parental support - are not fit to raise a baby. The most rational course of action is to put the baby up for adoption immediately. If that's not going to happen, then he can still relax a little, since it's extremely unlikely the baby's grandparents would be angry enough with its parents to let the it wither and die from neglect.

Finally, he needs to patch things up with his parents. If that means begging, apologizing, and letting himself be reprimanded or punished or any such thing, he'll just have to take it, because frankly he's messed up and has earned a bit of humble pie. He may be a father, but he's still just a sixteen year old kid, and he needs to let his parents be parents for him, as horrible as that often sounds to teenagers.

well you don't have to take request, you can just use it to showcase your drawings, and see what others think. I think its a good idea, but doing art for others is completely up to you
