About 10 years ago here in Australia, there was a TV ad, I THINK for some radio station, with two guys sitting around a campfire in the Outback, listening to a radio. The radio DJ says: "Give us a call! We'll talk about ANYTHING!" at which point one of them men is dragged underground by an ENORMOUS (car-sized) CGI trapdoor spider that pops out of a burrow behind him. Remaining guy rings the radio station and says: "I'd like to talk about spiders. Really big spiders."
Ring any bells, anyone? Trying to youtube it without success
She just turned 3 months old though so I'm becoming concerned about her rolling. Should I be buying a bed rail for my side? How do I keep her from rolling off our bed? I could put her between her dad and me (instead of me being in the middle as we do it now), but I've read that the father is more likely to roll onto the baby than the mother is so I don't want to do that. I know our best bet is a mattress on the floor against the wall, but we don't have an extra mattress and there isn't space to do that in our bedroom anyway. Our bed is only a full, so it's pretty tiny, and with my husband in bed with the two of us she can roll away from me like 1.5 times and end up falling. I'd be less worried if there was more space between her and the edge of the bed, but there just isn't. I'm guessing a bed rail is probably our best bet, but I was wondering if any experienced bedsharers had any better ideas.
Wish me luck! I defend the honor of us all!

I'm thinking about getting my helix pierced and the wonderful Internet actually freaks me out when I Google for this stuff. I'm looking for some specific recommendations of places, people, and/or practices that I should steer towards.
Considering I didn't get my lobes pierced until I was 17 as I was wholly afraid, lol, I'm looking for clean, friendly, and patient folks who can deal with me during the whole thing.

Do any of you folks have recommendations for affordable physio, and/or physio on a sliding scale? The closer to North York, the better.
Thanks, keep on rocking!
I feel like I'm in the right here, but maybe I'm not, so I'm seeking out the expertise of the Vancouver LJ community, who might know more about the legalities regarding moving out of an apartment.
I've heard from other building managers while viewing potential new livingspaces that 24 hours notice is required, legally, to show off a tenant's apartment. Is that true?
Because the building manager hasn't even been close to giving me that kind of notice, and it's getting kind of disruptive. She's been showing the apartment, sometimes several times a day, sometimes not bothering to call me, or usually the amount of notice I'm given is about 3-5 minutes..
I know the company that owns the building has financial interests here, and I try to be accommodating, but I didn't answer my phone this morning, because I was in the bathroom, y'know, naked and taking a shower, and it's a good thing that I had the front door bolted, because she tried to walk right into my apartment, without my permission/agreement or even knowledge within what would've been about 5 minutes from when she called.
I'd like to have a talk with her, and say "Legally, you're supposed to be giving me 24 hours notice" or something of the sort, but I just wanted to know if that was actually, true, or if anyone has any suggestions. Heck, I don't even want 24 hours notice, but like, how about half an hour, an hour, is that unreasonable?
Could anyone please recommend an agency that does temporary job placements? My friend told me that there were such that would put you on short-term assignments in different offices. They normally give you a very short notice and the length of assignments can be from a couple of hours to several weeks.
How do you find them? What are the good ones?
Will be really grateful for any tips!
I know it's a country song, and one of the points in the plot of the song was that a man went and robbed a store or a gas station with a woman sitting in the car while he did so. I want to say the lyric there was "She didn't sign up for this"...
I have googled and googled and am coming up with nothing.

Any luck? Thanks.
In the story there are places called Safe-Cities, which are basically small town and camps that have fortified and/or walled themselves in to make it a safe place. Of course nothing is completely safe and the Safe-Cities have options for those who are bitten but not dead or changed just yet. One City in particular has a pyre that they burn the corpse of the victim on after they have essentially killed themselves in a way of their choosing. The most popular is a form of poison/medication that peacefully kills the victim. Basically it's a final chance for the victim to die with some dignity.
So my Question is this: What is a poison or a medication that kills a person relatively quickly (within 10-30 minutes preferably) and, more importantly, peacefully. Plus thew person ingesting the poison would (again preferably) fall in unconsciousness some time after taking it. Also it would be nice if the poison can be injected or ingested (via liquid or pill)
I've searched a dozen things on google including "peaceful poison", "peaceful liquid/solid poison", "quick peaceful poison", "poisonous plants in Michigan". Plus I'm currently digging through the medicine: poisoning tag. So far the only thing ones I've gotten is carbon monoxide (which, in an apocalypse, would be a wasteful use of gasoline), belladonna (maybe, looking for more immediate sleepiness/unconsciousness), and Hemlock (which would work if it weren't for the being awake thing).
My best option from my research: Aconitum. Specifically a tincture of it, as it says in this article. It tells me that just 5mL of aconite tincture is lethal so I can assume that a higher dose would bring death quicker. I'm not sure though. If it comes down to it I can just handwave dosage.
Many thanks in advance!
12.5 weeks. My son and I both have it and my husband will probably be quick to follow. First time. :(
ETA: Walgreens just told me that there is no over the counter treatment available, even just until I can get in to a doctor. Is this true? Any alternatives to help in the meantime? I have an appt. for 9am tomorrow. The thought of another itchy night and waking up with bites all over is icking me out.
im pregnant with my 6th child, due this december...are there any communities for babies due at this time?
So, just found out that I have gestational diabetes, and I'm only 18 weeks right now. I'm meeting with my OB's nurse tomorrow to go over all the business of testing and such, and am meeting with a nutritionist soon. I looked through the tags and found lots of great into here on GD, but I was also wondering for those of who you have dealt with it, what sort of changes did you make to your lifestyle and diet? I understand that this is a different journey for everyone, but I'm just looking for a heads up, and am generally curious. :)
And then the rant...
I'm getting real tired of people always asking me, "How are you feeling?" This is our third pregnancy; after the first one landed us with an emergency c-section at 36 weeks and a week long hospital stay, and much the second pregnancy's coinciding with a military deployment... It seems all I hear out of certain family members is that incredibly annoying question. Part of me feels guilty when I know their intentions are good. But they just. don't. stop. And they're the type of people who politely asking them not to ask will have them on the defense, and/or they'll get the impression that I'm hiding something that is truly wrong. Sigh. It's simply not good enough for me to on the whole, be feeling fine.
Thank you kindly for any input on the GD stuff, and thanks for humoring my mini rage. ;) I hope you're all doing well and having a lovely evening!
Terms Searched: Essentially, I searched for "horses" and "broken legs", "horses" "shooting injured horses", "World War I" got some of what I was looking for: I found articles that discussed how injured/suffering horses were dealt with in WWI and general information on why broken legs are bad news for them. I also found on Wikipedia the American Academy of Neurology's grading-scale for concussions, which I'm using as a reference. However, some of the questions I have here are a bit too specific/unusual for Google.
(Warning, somewhat grim discussion of unpleasant horse death/injury below the cut)
( Again, mind that warning.Collapse )
Thank you to anyone who can help me with this, as I know those questions are a bit detailed and specific. Just want to make sure the story is as realistic as possible.
I can't remember if she was the main character, or just a friend, or if the dimple-deepening was seen as a cool thing or a totally stupid thing.
Location: Vancouver, Canada (phone calls would be made within the city)
Terms googled: many combinations of telephone, trace/tracing, call, history, police, all of which return many hits for how to trace your current phone history; have skimmed several articles about the history of telephones in general and in the 1950s/1940s; any suggestions for google searches also welcomed
And there's this shot of dude getting out of his car and walking slowly across the parking lot to his job, and it's almost entirely empty with row after row of blue handicapped logos. lol.
For some reason I was thinking it was Idiocracy or Office Space but I'm almost 100% it's neither of those.
