  • Why is it bad for all the countries to follow the same laws?

    It might sound stupid but I'm curious. For example, why would it be bad for all the countries in the EU to follow the same laws?

  • I'm always the one asking my friend to hang out. Should I even bother?

    My best friend and I used to hang out all the time before she got a boyfriend and another new "best friend". I have other friends but they're not allowed to hang out because of overprotective parents. Now, I just basically stay at home, wasting my summer away. I always ask her to hang out but she says she's busy or she's with her boyfriend or she cancels after saying yes. This happens everytime I ask her. Should I even bother anymore?

  • My friends want to smoke shisha. Should I let her or be worried?

    My friend got invited to go to a shisha bar but she's only 16. I think she's taking an interest in smoking and alcohol and stuff like that. I don't know how I should feel. We're both growing up and experimenting so I get that she's starting to get into those things. Should I just let her do her thing or talk some sense into her?

  • How to deal with a rude, inconsiderate older sister?

    Where do I even begin... My sister is 17 years old and she's graduated high school so she's an adult. But she still acts like a rude, immature kid. For example, she's very, very rude to my mom. Whenever my mom asks her a question, all she ever says is "No." in a really angry tone. She never considers other people's feelings. We share a room and this morning, it was her second day back at school and while I was in the middle of sleeping, she rudely turned on the bright light of the room to change into her clothes. Whenever I get ready and she's still asleep, I never turn on the lights and I try to be as quiet as possible. When she got home from school, she knew my mom was preparing dinner for her but she decides to tell her AFTER she's almost done preparing it that she's not gonna eat. She seriously pisses me off so much all the time but I can never show it to her because otherwise, she's gonna get all pissed and not talk to me. Another thing is that she never tells my parents anything, literally. My parents always end up asking me because there's no point in asking her because she's not gonna tell them. Oh, and I told her this (that they always ask me) and she got mad at them for not asking HER! My mom has told her very clearly that she needs to stop acting rude and she listens for a while but then she just goes back to her regular self. I have also told her as well that she doesn't learn from her mistakes. I can't take it anymore, I feel like I'm gonna burst one day and I'll regret it. I can't really talk to her about it right now because we're all so busy with school. There's more that she does and it's hard to deal with it everyday. I can see my mom hurting because of her so I try to be the better daughter. What do I do? How do I deal with her?

  • Not hungry, losing weight, feeling tired, help?

    School started today and before, I've been a little stressed out. Lately, I haven't been eating as much; I usually have a big appetite. As a side note, I'm really skinny (only 100 pounds on average and I'm 5'6). For the past couple of days, I have had an empty stomach but not feeling hungry and when I do eat, I can't seem to eat until I'm full, otherwise I feel sick. And now, I'm suddenly getting chilly. What could be wrong?

  • What is the best e-book reader?

    I'm considering the Kindle since a lot of people said good things about it but I still have my options open. I just want a tablet that's good for reading. I'm not looking for Internet surfing or any of that stuff because I have an iPod touch. Also, I don't want anything that uses backlight, just e-ink. I know about the Kindle, Nook, Sony e-reader and the Koby but not sure which would be the best to spend money on. Any advice?

  • Am I too underweight?

    Hi, I'm 15 years old, female and I'm 167cm tall so roughly around 5ft5in-5ft6in. I weigh on average 100-103 pounds. But I eat a lot. And I mean a lot a lot. I probably eat more than others ad don't gain a pound (mind you that this is additional info, not trying to brag). I don't look freakishly thin but I do look thin. I'm worried that I might be too underweight? And is this weight "healthy"?

  • Did all the work for my group project and putting my best friend's name on it...?

    For an art project, I did it with my best friend. I become a perfectionist when it comes to grades or projects and want nothing but the best. We had all our idea on the table but when it came to it, I did ALL the work. Literally--it's as if it was an individual project. She contributed NOTHING. Everytime I mentioned the project, saying we really had to start on it, she would say "Yeah," and changed the subject, as if our marks were all a joke. I literally spent my whole day working on it. Now, I have to hand it in with my and her name on it when I was the one who did all the work. I told her about this yesterday and she said that she felt guilty for not doing anything but then she changed the subject again. I couldn't openly say that it was not ok (she's my best friend...). I feel really uncomfortable and wrongful handing it in and her getting the free marks. She's my best friend, so I don't know what to do... Should I just let it go?

  • My best friend told me she smokes weed... What should I do?

    Today, my best friend and I were talking about gym class and she said she can't run far because she's lazy and she smokes weed. This came to me as a total shock because she's the silliest person on Earth and I would've never expected her to smoke. She said she had tried it once before. I know weed is not as bad for you as cigarettes but I personally don't support or condone drugs so I don't want to get her a biased response and tell her it's terrbile and she should stop. I don't want my friend to fall in the wrong crowd or end up going down a bad path. What should I tell her or do? Should I just let her do her own thing and mind my own business?

  • The elastic bands of my braces turned green... What do I do?

    I ate some chicken noodle soup and the elastic that wrap around the brackets of my braces turned green. I tried brushing my teeth but it won't go away. I can't take them off either and I don't want to call my orthodontist. Is there any way that I can unstain them? Or is there nothing I can do about it? Please help. My next appointment is in a month.
