I got a lucky bamboo yesterday and today, I noticed a stalk had turned yellow and the leaves were beginning to change as well.
I took all the stalks out of the pot and found the problem immediately. The soil was rotting and gave off possibly the worst odor I have ever smelled.
I have them in water now, wondering what to do with them.
So two questions:
Do I plant them in soil or water with pebbles?
Should I throw away the stalk that turned yellow? Its roots are still reddish, and the one leaf thats on it is green.2 AnswersGarden & Landscape1 decade ago
Its that time again. My pms is back, and everyone hates me, including myself. My family annoys me to no end, and locking myself in my room and dwelling on it is not helping.
And the thing that really, really, really, REALLY annoys me about all this: my parents make perfectly sure to tell me that I have pms, when I know good and well that I have it. And when they tell me that I'm pms-ing, it just pisses me off even more, because I think that they are acting like they know everything because they've lived for 50 years. Go talk to a 100-year-old person, and just see what they have to say about 50 years! I can imagine it now...."You're just babies! 50 years is nothing. I remember when I was 50..." Oh, boy, would that be the highlight of my day just to win an argument with my parents.
Oh, god, I'm rambling. Help!?
What can I do to get through a week of hell?4 AnswersWomen's Health1 decade ago
I have PMDD, like my mom does, and it kills my family life for about a week. I do fine at school, but when I get home, fights seem to pop out of nowhere. My parents like to f*ck with me around this time, and that definitely does NOT help.
I'm clumsy. I cry because I get clumsy. I get irritated easily. I cuss more, and I feel like everything would be better without me. Little sounds and habits that my parents and brother make or have annoy me to no end, when normally, I wouldn't care. When my parents ask me a simple question, it annoys me. When I have to repeat myself, I can't help but say it again with menace.
My family hates me as much as I hate myself around this time. I can't get birth control so thats out of the question.
What can I do!?2 AnswersWomen's Health1 decade ago
I become afraid when I think someone is starting to like me. Its not that I'm afraid of commitment, I'm just terrified of intimacy.
I'm one of those people that has trouble saying I love you, and I've never held hands with a guy, much less had my first kiss.
I need trust, and the guy that currently likes me is extremely sweet, but I've only known him for 2 weeks. I know, its a really short time. I haven't had enough time to really know who he is, and that scares me.
I'm afraid that I'll be embarrassed, or not good enough for him, and I'm even afraid that my fear will hold me back and push him away.
But I can't seem to stop being scared. He was going to ask me to a dance this Friday, and I avoid dances at all costs. He ended up not asking me, but I know he wants to. The thing is, I don't dance.
I think the real thing is, I'm terrified of being embarrassed? What can I do? My fear is killing me.3 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
I'm playing Final Fantasy X, and I'm trying to get Anima from the Baaj Temple.
I went in the statue room and only two of them lit up. The two closest to the big glyph. Which ones are these, and how do I get the other treasures?
Also, haha, how do I get out!? I've swam around the entire circle and I can't find a save sphere or a way out.3 AnswersVideo & Online Games1 decade ago
My brother started me a game of Final Fantasy X, and I've been playing it for two weeks. He usually comes in and watches me play, or helps me on something. But yesterday, things got a little out of hand.
Whenever he helped me play the game, he would take the controller and use me as his maid to go get things for him. Whenever I was playing, he would either not help me when I asked, or, when he wanted to play, he would tell me what to do even if I told him not to.
So yesterday, I got tired of him bossing me around, and I kicked him out of my room. The bad part is, my brother is spiteful, and the game and the console are both his. So he comes back in my room while I'm playing and says, "Give me the game, or I'm going to take it." Either way, I lose the game. So I say no, and he takes it. I figure he took it because I wouldn't let him do what he wanted. My parents told me it was the right thing to do, kicking him out and all.
Today, while hes was at work, I asked my mom what I should do, and she told me to take the game and finish it, since I'm almost at the end. So I went in his room and got the game, only to find he had taken the memory card out so I couldn't play.
Hes not as dumb as I thought he was.
What should I do?6 AnswersFamily1 decade ago
I got a haircut today, and donated about 15 inches to Locks of Love.
The problem is, I asked the lady doing my hair to cut about 10 inches off! Instead she chops it off about an inch above my chin. I have terribly thick hair, and I think it looks ridiculous and childish. I'm 15 and I already look young for my age.
Its too short to put in a ponytail, or any other sort of clip in the back. I don't want to get extensions, and I'd rather not get it cut again, for fear that it would make it shorter and take longer to grow out.
I absolutely hate it, and no matter how much my parents tell me it looks good, I still think they're lying.
I want my beautiful hair back, and I want it fast. I spent the entire trip home crying. I'm afraid to look at myself.

On R&S, I've noticed some people making comments against 14 year olds,often insinuating that ALL of them have a low maturity level.
It annoys me when some people say these things, because everyone has their moments of immaturity, no matter what age you are.
And I think its wrong for them to assume that every 14 year old is a whiny, know-it-all, compulsive idiot.
Please, enlighten me.12 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
I know this has been asked many times before, but the issue of "In God We Trust" is eating at me.
This phrase, printed on all bills and coins, as well as "Under God" being placed in the Pledge of Allegiance, is unconstitutional.
In the US Constitution, Amendment 1, it clearly states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...".
So, does the government pass this statement off as if it were not there?
I was reading about a case where the phrase was in question. A man, Newdow, brought in a complaint concerning the Pledge. The article said, by word of Newdow, "that knowing his child is being led to say 'one nation under God' on a daily basis makes him feel disenfranchised".
In turn, the Chief Justice replied "that Congress unanimously added the two words "under God" in 1954, implying that no one found it offensive".
The father responded "That's only because no atheists can be elected to office.".
I'm wondering if this is true, and if this statement on our money and in our Pledge can be removed?
Also, since 1954, there has been an increase in the amount of people who have stated that they do not practice a religion, or that they do not believe in a god.
I think that this statement should be removed, given that it is unconstitutional and supports the character of "God". Removing the phrase would open up the freedom in Amendment 1.18 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
I've had some lower back pain for a couple weeks and I would love to be able to swallow an ibuprofen like food, but I can't.
I know its only in my mind, but no matter what I try, it won't go down. I've tried stuffing it in bread, chopping it into little pieces (one of which got stuck in my throat), throwing my head back, and taking gulps of orange juice. Nothing works.
Even with the bread, my tongue seems to have a mind of its own and separates out the pill before I swallow.
This is incredible frustrating and my mom gets angry at me because I tell her I can't swallow them. That only makes it worse.

I've been thinking about taking piano lessons, because I find the instrument's sound so beautiful, but I don't have a lot of drive.
I've wanted to take drum and guitar lessons at one point, but that never happened. I have a tendency to give up easily, and I get impatient. I'm 15, and I really want to accomplish something.
I don't have a piano or keyboard to practice at home with, and my parents would never buy one. Is it even worth it?
I need to know if piano is going to be easy or hard, and how long does it take? I personally hate dealing with teachers individually, but I think thats my only option.
Does anyone have any tips or advice for me?

Heres a picture:
I would love to be able to go to a professional and trust them with my hair, and let them make the decision, but I can't.
My hair is long and thick. I can't cut it short. The length weighs down the puffiness. I've tried layers, and they don't suit me. They always grow out and look strange. My hair also has a slight wave.
I'm turning 15 in June, and I look much younger than I really am, so a haircut that makes me look older would be nice.

My brother asked me if I wanted to play chess and I said no. Then he asked me why, and I said I didn't want to. Then he said "Why do you have to be such a pain in the *** all the time. Why don't you be nice once and a while?"
Later, he wanted me to try this enchilada he made and my dad and him were hovering over me. It had corn in it, and I hate corn. Eh...so I said I hate corn and my brother said "You hate everything! What do you not hate?" And my dad said "You won't even know its corn."
So I said, "I don't even want to try this anymore. You guys are assholes." and I walked away. Note: I didn't say this harshly.
As I was walking away, I heard my dad say, "You're the asshole."

He deserved it.41 AnswersCelebrities1 decade ago
To start, my brother is 19, still living at home, and acts like hes 10. I'm 14, and my emotions always run high.
This is slightly stupid. We finished watching a movie, the credits were running and I wanted to find out who played a character. My brother had the control, so I asked him for it and he wouldn't give it to me. He did this until I got mad and started yelling at him. He actually ENJOYS watching me get angry. (He has Aspergers and ADD if that makes any difference.)
So I went into another room to cool off, which didn't help much. By the time I got back, the credits were over, and he gave me the remote. I called him a f*cker cause I was mad, so he started getting all "oh, you hurt my feelings" and "god, calm down". HE was feeding my anger!
He told me that I didn't have to control everything, which wasn't my intention, and that I needed to stop getting so mad. I was getting mad because he was being a total ***, and pushing it by laughing at me. So it was on him too.
Now I have a major headache, and I often try to hurt myself when I get mad, which comes from a history of self-harm. He is really stressing me out and it gets hard to control my anger.
He does things like this frequently, and I would love to know how to deal with him. Please help, my head hurts.4 AnswersFamily1 decade ago
