I want (bad) candy.
I have been tasked with setting up a Bad Candy Day at work. The goal to have people bring in some type of candy that they dislike, and we'll all sit around and try the candy and laugh at how awful it is..... What awful candies can I buy to make people hate and love Bad Candy Day? [more inside]

My go-to OTC allergy med isn't working well, and my ragweed/pollen allergies are going crazy. I went to the allergist and she gave me a nasal spray to try, then said I could use allergy shots in the fall. I told her that I would like to try them right away (she said they have a chance of eliminating allergies, which would be a miracle!), but she doesn't want to use them yet. The nasal spray doesn't seem to be working. Should I force the issue, or is she right to be cautious? [more inside]

I have this suede Australian outback hat that I bought at a garage sale a few weeks ago, for $6. I didn't examine it closely at the time, but it reeks of mold and must, leather small, and saddlesoap from a stab at self cleaning. Can I dry clean it?
Here's pictures of the hat in question: My Poor Hat, two pics of it.
It's a Walkabout brand Australian hat, size small. [more inside]

Made white bean and kale soup (vegetarian broth) with small chunk of parmesan cheese rind. Left out on stove overnight and didn't see it before running to work this morning (as I said, special lame-o edition). Now need dinner. Should I risk the soup?

- i recently had to get an i phone 5 for work at a new job.
- i backed up the previous iphone 4 to i cloud.
- when i re-entered i cloud, it said the backup is incomplete.
- i thought i had changed my apple id username,
but i have only been able to use the old id so obviously i must have done it incorrectly
- i cannot sync my old contacts and photos to my new i phone.
- i assume all the contacts are on the old sim, but it doesnt fit a 5.
- i probably dont have access to the old handset.
- i might be able to use my girlfriends handset, but not reset it.
- i want the photos and contacts.
i am starting to really hate apple.
how do i do it - is there a way or have i lost all my contacts?

Huge jackpot lotteries in the USA, like Powerball and Mega Millions, offer the jackpot as either an annuity for the total amount of the prize, or a lump sum for a reduced amount. It seems that the vast majority of the winners pick the lump sum over the annuity. Which to me just makes no sense at all. [more inside]

I gave my boyfriend a surprise gift of a list of one hundred things I loved about him for valentines day. He found it after I left his house and called to say it was the most thoughtful thing anyone had ever done for him. I don't want to be the first to say "I love you" because I never have with any of my previous relationships and prefer a guy say those words first, but upon further reflection I am wondering if the list would count as the inadvertent equivalent of saying those three heavy words.

Songfilter: There was a song that I was listening on the radio a while back that I'd like to listen to again but my google-fu is failing me. The song is a little slow with light female vocals, and one of the lines in the chorus was or sounded like "I assume, I assume, I assume." Does this ring a bell to anyone?

I understand the normal rules for "I" and "Me" in sentences, but I simply cannot figure out the answer to this example.
What I want to say is that my dad and I are regional truckers (or me and my dad are regional truckers). If I stay true to the "I" vs."Me" formula I learned in school and eliminate the objective pronoun, the simplified version of the sentence can be written as either "I are regional truckers" or "me are regional truckers", and both of these look atrocious written down. I'm not a seasoned grammarian, but even I know that neither one of these seems to be the correct answer. Am I missing something?

But I'm not sure if taking out a loan on a car is a good idea, especially when the car won't increase in value. [more inside]
