How can I explain to my aunt that this particular thing isn't worth the effort or money to help the planet?
My aunt is one of those really whacked out environmental type. Now, I have an ultra low emission vehicle, drive slow, recycle, weatherstrip, and all those economical energy/planet savings things, but this seems to me that it is impractical http://www.homemadeenergy.org/?hop=tank2008 she sends me this link today and wants me to start building solar panels. I am not a carpenter or skilled at this stuff, plus my free time is very valuable to me as I'm always working long hours. I want to save the planet, but I don't need an old lady spending my money and my saturdays. Please Help! (we co-own the house, so I can't just say bugger off) Thank you,3 AnswersConservation1 decade ago
She was a little upset that she didn't have a big 60th birthday party bash (unfortunately no one could afford to throw a nice party). This year we, her children, have decided to make it up to her by throwing her a 61st party bash. But alas! We need a theme, and I was thinking that the Prime Number Birthday party wouldn't be the most popular theme. It will probably be held in a Church banquet hall, and will be in November. Thank you!5 AnswersEntertaining1 decade ago
Why is Liberty Ave. called Liberty Ave.?
Is it sarcasm about how little Liberty the Police Chief gives them in season 4, or is it reminding us about the Liberty they have because they are out and proud. Or is it just the actual gay strip in Pittsburgh, much like Christopher St. in NYC? I am gay and have watched every episode.4 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 decade ago
Ok, I raised my child to be very open minded and understanding of all people regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation ect. But lately I've been starting to suspect something was up, he'd run up to his room immediately after dinner and would spend a lot of time on the computer and "out" with his friends wearing white shirts and ties. Then the other day I found mail from the Young Republican's addressed to him, I checked his internet history and found out that he's really very involved with Conservatives and Evangelical Churches. When I confronted him about it he said "Dad, I'm a biggot and there is nothing you can do about it!" and ran to his room. I didn't raise him to be a biggot, is this just a phase? Is there any way I can make him be liberal or do I just have to throw him out of the house? Please help.13 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 decade ago
Does anyone remember the name of this gay independent movie? It takes place in California, a guy owns an offbeat/independent music store and is in love with his best friend and employee, but it is unrequited. In the end he kills himself and expresses his long repressed love on his suicide video. I've been looking for it, but cannot find it. Please help!3 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 decade ago
As one car (A) was proceeding through a green light in a complicated intersection, another car (B) runs through the intersecting red light in front of (A). (A) hits (B). A witness stopped and told the police that (B) ran through the red light. However the police did not issue a ticket to (B). Is there any chance at all that car (A) will be found at fault or duel fault?13 AnswersLaw Enforcement & Police1 decade ago
I found this movie very funny, yet I watched it with a friend that is struggling with his sexuality. I think the overabundance of gay drama might have made him a little apprehensive about accepting his orientation. What is your opinion of this movie? Does anyone else share my opinion of this movie? How do you think I can relieve my friends aversion to homosexuality caused by gay drama as exaggerated in this film?6 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 decade ago

It is larger than a wren and has a long pointy beak. It's neck has black and white stripes. It has laid it's eggs on some rocks on a divider in the parking lot, the lot is adjacent a swamp and a highway. It gives out an angry chirp when you get close to it.

I work in accounting it is a fairly conservative field, we have to wear suits every day. I am gay, and out in every aspect of my life except work. I am a first year, and I don't have my CPA yet. One of my managers is an out lesbian, but she isn't very flamboyant. My manager is catholic, and most of the managers are jewish. If anyone has any advice I would appreciate it. Thanks.12 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 decade ago
I'm still not out at work, I've been here for 4 months. I didn't invite my boyfriend to the holiday party because I was scared (I work in accounting and didn't expect my coworkers to be receptive). However, I discovered last night that one of my managers is a lesbian. Now I feel like a fool for not inviting my boyfriend, next year they aren't allowing guests. I would like to talk to my manager about it, but don't know how to go about approaching her on the subject. I really just want to feel more comfortable at work! Some of my coworkers sounded a bit unsure of how to answer me when I asked "who's that woman with 'manager'", seemed like they weren't comfortable with the subject. Please give me advice.17 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 decade ago
