What does cent on the dollar mean? I just got GTA 5, and finished my first heist, and Michael said they would get 50 cents on the dollar. I looked it up, but it didn't sound like it was a good thing, but Franklin and he acted like it was.

They get 50 cents for every dollar they make.

They split the money 50/50
User avatar #125496 to #125495 - vortexrain ONLINE (04/04/2014) [-]
The jewelry was sold for 50 cents on the dollar, how does that mean the split the money 50/50?
User avatar #125497 to #125496 - ipostcp (04/04/2014) [-]
They sold it... and got half of the money for what it was worth... That's what it means.
User avatar #125498 to #125497 - vortexrain ONLINE (04/04/2014) [-]
How is that a good thing? I'd rather have $4 million than $2 million.
User avatar #125499 to #125498 - ipostcp (04/04/2014) [-]
Because they are splitting it between people.

Also "Hot" items are generally sold for a lot less because they are illegal.

Are you stupid or something?

So my hard drive got wiped and I lost about half my music on itunes, can I get all the music back by plugging my ipod in with all the music still on it or will that just take all the music off the ipod?
User avatar #125620 to #125482 - hwangw (04/05/2014) [-]
You can use a program called senuti (itunes backwards) and it'll copy your music from your ipod back to itunes. If I remember correctly you'll have to google around for a serial number, I believe their's a youtube video with one that you can use if you look for it.
User avatar #125490 to #125482 - iridium (04/04/2014) [-]
There are a few ways to rip music from an iPod to iTunes, but I don't believe any of it is first party/official, nor did I see any free 3rd party stuff that let me do it either. Apple is kind of a dick like that nowadays.

I'd suggest just re-torrenting the stuff.

Hey Funnyjunk, recently broke up with my girlfriend and am talking to another girl already. I don't want anything serious but how should I approach going on a date with her?
Common interests: music, sports (baseball/softball), school (good grades)
Things to consider: She has overall low self-esteem and is occasionally moody.

User avatar #125483 to #125454 - adviceguy (04/04/2014) [-]
Well the most important think I feel needs to be stated is that you shouldn't move into a new relationship yet. Just sit down with this new girl and be very frank about your intentions and what you don't want from her.

She will appreciate the honesty and she will be able to tell if you two are on the same page. Telling a girl exactly what you're looking for may scare some off but that honestly just saves you future drama.

Just go on dates that are fun and that you two will enjoy, but that couldn't be misconstrued as being romantic in any way.
#125472 to #125454 - frankbeeflinks (04/04/2014) [-]
From what I have seen from other people. Just hang out with that girl and do some favors for her. Not everything though that is a really important because then that can cause friendzone. Also with the hanging out stay with here but not to the point that makes you look like a couple. Since she is moody try to be that shoulder to cry on a bit not too much then it will become more contact and can could go two extreme ways Good as in her liking you and becoming your girlfriend or bad as in her thinking you're her friend so much that you will corrupt the other rules and can puddle your chance of going out with her. One more thing, compromises try to establish so many to the point that you can't accomplish them then that makes you untrustworthy and can lead to separation. I wanted to go out with a girl like that but I didn't know any better and in stuck in friendzone. I am giving you what happened to me and it is a little but hope this helps.

User avatar #125468 to #125463 - awesomerninjathing (04/04/2014) [-]
so you want to hang out as just friends?

Pretty much.
User avatar #125471 to #125470 - awesomerninjathing (04/04/2014) [-]
you could offer to hang out but with a group of friends instead of 1-on-1

or if you're keen on a 1-on-1 thing you can go for dinner/coffee alone and not make any moves

Hi guys I wanted to ask on your opinions if I was being a dick or not and if I was still correct. Well today I was posting on facebook on a friends comment on religion (oh here we go again :/). Well they were having a discussion about it and there was 3 main people talking, Poster (lead girl), B-belt (small talking guy but has good points), And opposing viewpoint girl OVP (Idk who she is). Well they started talking and OVP Said that she didn't believe in a religion or wanted to do anything with it (yet she was posting). Later B-belt commented about since she was not part of a religion he called her either an atheist or agnostic to point out what her viewpoint is what she and he said (“I don't want to be part of any group so just leave me out of it” that is atheist. Absence of belief. Words have meaning, whether you like them attached to you or not.) OVP said she was neither. I am not sure how that works since usually people who don’t believe are atheist or agnostic or other depending. So I come in and tell what B-belt said was true and OVP denies to the fullest. Then I tell her (OVP don't be ignorant if you don't believe in a god then you are an atheist or agnostic, there is no other way to put it.) . Then she proceeds to call me a dick, ass, Ignorant; then leaves saying that she is not part of religion. So FJ Helpers what do you think? Was I correct in the convo or just completely wrong? Comment below and I will answer when I can.
User avatar #125484 to #125453 - adviceguy (04/04/2014) [-]
She simply didn't understand what an atheist or agnostic actually are and threw a fit. People getting upset because they don't know what they're talking about is quite common. Brush it off and move on my friend.

Pro Tip: Press enter every now and then so that you don't have such a wall of text.

You were right in what you said but you probably should not have joined the conversation. OVP should not have either, she just wanted to be a cunt it seems.
#125474 to #125458 - frankbeeflinks (04/04/2014) [-]
Not really I was being more of a cunt if anything compared to her but like I said I was more cruder about it. I go straight to the point. Lead girl and OVP had weak arguments and B-Belt was much better and he commented alot less compared to them. Thanks for reading alot.
User avatar #125475 to #125474 - lordleyva (04/04/2014) [-]
>more cruder
I don't know why she got so defensive over being called an atheist though. What did she say she identified herself as? Not many religions do not have a deity. I suppose she could consider herself as a Buddhist?
#125476 to #125475 - frankbeeflinks (04/04/2014) [-]
Yea sorry I just saw that. But Idk she said she didn't want to part of religion so I naturally called her what non believers are called. I think she thinks that being called an atheist is interconnected with religion. Idk but this chick is misinformed.
User avatar #125477 to #125476 - lordleyva (04/04/2014) [-]

You know, after being here awhile, it's funny how many confessions on this board that pretty much have the following answers to them:

-Yes, go for it/No, don't do it
-Don't worry about it/it'll be fine
-Therapy
User avatar #125485 to #125442 - adviceguy (04/04/2014) [-]
Sometimes people know the answer to their own questions but they need to hear it from someone else. Also some people just use it to vent.
User avatar #125461 to #125442 - hawaiianhappysauce (04/04/2014) [-]
I think this is due to the fact that at the top it says "Advice - love advice, dating advice..." And mostly love advice is the following questions:

1. How do I ask someone out? - 40%
2. How do I get over a break up? - 15%
3. How do I deal with this relationship issue? - 20%
4. I've been alone forever, how do I get a gf? - 4%
5. Is my gf prego? - 3 %
6. I can't seem to orgasm during sex, is this my fault? - 1%
7. Other - 17%

Mainly the ones where people need encouragement rather than practical help, or ones where people are opening up about psychological problems which can't be treated by just words.

Hey guys. I have a pretty big question. Is college really as important as everyone pushes it to be? I can't think of any career path that I would want to take that would require a college education but everyone tells me I will fail at life if I don't go to college.
User avatar #125487 to #125424 - adviceguy (04/04/2014) [-]
Depends what you want to do.

It is nice to have though an Associates Degree is now what a high school diploma used to be. If you're not sure what you and to do it can't hurt to start working towards the aforementioned associates degree. Because, regardless of what major, this degree is earned through core classes you'll need.

Would it really make sense to go to a college with no perspective career opportunities when I already have an opportunity for an above minimum wage full time job right out of highschool?
User avatar #125452 to #125428 - hawaiianhappysauce (04/04/2014) [-]
I would do that for awhile and take the time to figure things out. Keep in mind that going to college is expensive unless you are 1. born with a rich family who will pay for it. 2. Got full scholarships. 3. Going to a community college with a low reputation.

Debt is not a fun thing to have. If you have a job that pays decent you could go to school part time and have a nice job to help pay for expenses, also don't live on campus, that's more money you shouldn't have to spend.

some of the most successful people in the world dropped out of college
User avatar #125437 to #125425 - iridium (04/04/2014) [-]
That's not quite accurate. The reason they dropped out of college was because there was something they were already doing and college was holding them back.

Mark Zuckerberg dropped because he was already making his own website. Bill Gates had plans to start his own company while in college.
User avatar #125426 to #125425 - drakenumen (04/03/2014) [-]

So I've started to develop stretch marks on my hips. I'm 18 and male, I'm not fat by any means, but I've got a bit more chub than I should (I'm like 90kg ausfag). I've been doing more exercise to try and combat it and there has been a bit of an improvement, is losing weight just the key to getting the marks to fade? Cheers

OK, right, I wasn't sure where else to go... and well, FunnyJunk has always been like a home to me.
Here's the problem... I've been feeling more and more depressed as these weeks go on. The reasons being; I'm a music producer, and I have been for 4 years, but I really suck at it and I don't see myself getting better. I'm starting to suck terribly at school. and. The main reason being... I have a girlfriend. She's 2 years younger than me, and is absolutely amazing. The trouble is, I'm so so so shy, and I find it hard to talk to her... but, we get by. Buuut... She's all I have left to live for. I don't have any friends, apart from her and my best friend Jake. Problem is, Jake is also best friends with my girlfriend... and those guys hang out at school and after school. I don't have a problem with that, but I feel as though she deserves someone more like him... and I've been driven to cutting and suicidal thought because I don't see a point anymore... sorry for ranting, but, I needed a place to get this off my chest. sorry guys...

Well bud first things first with your producing gig, if it's a paid job you're gonna have to work harder to get better. If it's a hobby you want to make a job, same deal, work harder at it or look at other avenues you could go down, because if you're good at your job and you like that, it's gonna be nothing but beneficial for you. Now if you're having trouble actually talking to your gf, thats warning signs right there. She's supposed to be the one you can trust with everything. You need to get over the shyness and be a good boyfriedn to her. Because if you think your friend is better than you, chances are she will given time as well. I don't want to be a dick and say "Man up", but in this instance you need get up and do something about your shit. Get work doing what you want to do, and stand up and be a good boyfriend. That will make you a ton of a lot happier I can assure you.
User avatar #125420 to #125418 - cuteee (04/03/2014) [-]
Yeah it's more of a hobby, but, thank you, I'll try my best on that front. As for "manning up", I see what you're saying. But I can talk to her about everything and anything, but, It's like, she's all I have, but she has a huge array of friends, hobbies, and everything. She dances, acts, and has turned down multiple scholarships because she's "happy where she is". But, I'll try my best to get over it, it's just hard, I'm an emotional cripple and I cry all the time.. but thank you so much man. thank you.

So, I have no idea what to do so i'm coming here. Got decent advice in the past.
I have aspergers, young adult and I have depression and anxiety. Really bad. I only go out the house about once a week, no that is not exaggerating. My therapist thinks I have BD as well.
Problem is, I try to fight all this but recently as I look into aspergers more it seems to go with the territory. It is theorised that a lot of ASD comes with an issue with serotonin uptake.
I'm totally fucking terrified that I will be like this forever. That no matter how hard I fight, It is in me biologically. I don't know what the fuck to do, I can't live like this.

I feel extremely bad for you. My dad has it, he is a blood labratory manager making 70 dollars an hour, but.. he has a lot of issues.

I lived with him for 5 years and I got hurt by him almost every day. I just hope you don't turn out the same way with the anger and lust issues.

As someone with Asperger's who just like in your case, hardly ever leaves the house I actually know what you're going through. Though I can/'t really provide you with a thorough answer as myself, haven't exactly figured out how to communicate effectively with people. I say that in the indirect meaning, Yes I can "technically" talk to other people but mainly what Asperger's is is the inability to recognize facial expressions, and struggle with interpersonal side of communication.

My best advice is find a significant other who is above and beyond accepting of Asperger's syndrome. As for a career, try to find something that fits your personality type. For example, My friend, also has Asperger's has ADHD along with Asperger's and he is really energetic, all the time,so a fast paced, constantly changing job would be a good fit for him. For others, that do not have the "hyperactivity" with Asperger's a slower, repetitive environment might be a good match for them, And that's okay.

For me, I see being a security guard, or a police officer(in a fairly large city of 200K) is just slow and repetitive enough but at the same time changes enough to not get
bored.

The above advice is more long term. To deal with it in the short term, I recommend having a talk with your therapist and ask them what they think you should do. In my opinion, avoid any medication. For something you can do by yourself, try reading other people's experiences with Asperger's and what helps them cope with living with Asperger's Syndrome. It helps me when I feel like this.

Sorry if this is long. If you ever want/need to have input from someone with Asperger's PM me.

BD? Bipolar? You have to have manic episodes in order to have Bipolar Disorder.

Do you have a diagnosis of Aspergers as well? A lot of young people seem to want to point the finger of what is "affecting them" to Aspergers, but I can tell you as a person with Asperger's that there's a boatload more to it than depression, anxiety, and being non-social, and there's more at work than a mere serotonin deficiency.

Let me tell you from experience: nothing is going to get better if you get caught in the mindset that "it cannot possibly get better". The first step towards fixing a problem is acknowledging it's a problem, and the second step is acknowledging that it can be fixed. You will only be stuck in it forever if you let yourself be. Personally, I refused help for a long time because I insisted that I didn't have any condition, that it was just me being a failure at communicating with people, despite there being a lot more factors involved besides a lack of desire to socialize or empathize with people. Once I was willing to open up to people actually willing and able to help, things got a lot easier on my own mental burden. That's not to say I don't have my quirks and occasional bouts of sadness and angst because of it, but who doesn't actually something up with their personality and periods of sadness and frustration? Probably someone who is very boring.

Depression is an emotion. An extreme case, but it is one that can at least partially be influenced by cognition and mindset. So no, you're not going to be this way forever unless you let yourself or want yourself to be so. And I would advise seeing a psychotherapist if you can, someone who knows a lot about the issue.

Also, try to get yourself out of the house when you can, it is a better stress reliever than people give it credit for. Having something to do and work towards is nice, and lack of Vitamin D can be correlated to depression.
User avatar #125448 to #125440 - thedumbledore (04/04/2014) [-]
Ok, First of all, yes. I have a diagnosis of Aspergers from real qualified people, not doctor google. I also should have specified that BD is body dysmorphia, not Bipolar disorder. I know with aspergers there is a LOT more than a serotonin deficiency, but it is one theory with a bit of evidence as to why people on the autistic spectrum have a high rate of depression and other psychological issues- that just makes me worry that no matter how hard I try, I might not be able to overcome this bullshit.

That's the issue I have, I keep getting caught up in 'episodes' of the feeling of it won't get better. I am trying to get better, I am seeing a qualified individual but I was wondering what people do when they get that feeling that it won't ever go away. People don't seem to get what I was asking, I think I worded it wrong.
User avatar #125449 to #125448 - iridium (04/04/2014) [-]
I just wait through it, and talk to people (close family) about how I feel. Usually when I get sad about something I'm over it pretty quickly because there isn't much point to being depressed about something, though at least that's my rationale when it comes to it. Either I can sit and mope or I can do something about it and move on. That isn't always the case though. I've been in the position where I feel like the depression, the isolation, and my own weaknesses won't go away, even scared of it. Usually I talk to my sister about it, as she's someone I know who won't be judgmental, and getting it off my thoughts and with someone who is sympathetic and willing to help out often is a lot of relief.

Emotions don't sort themselves out, but I doubt you'll feel this way forever. Just give it some time, and make sure to spend time around those you do trust, even if there aren't many people like that. I find that to be very relieving of my own inner turmoils.

Body dysmorphia on the other hand I don't know really much about, so I can't offer advice about that.
User avatar #125441 to #125440 - iridium (04/04/2014) [-]
And Hawaiian is right that "you are who you are". But that doesn't mean you can't work to better yourself, that you always have to be a certain way, and that the best way to deal with things is to lie down in a corner and never do anything about them or work to overcome them.
User avatar #125391 to #125378 - hawaiianhappysauce (04/03/2014) [-]
I understand how you feel, sort of. I don't think I have aspergers, but I do keep to myself often and sometimes feel sad for no real reason.

You are right, you are who you are and nothing can really change that, but I think serotonin is right. You have to start somewhere to change, it's a slow process so you have to be patient.
User avatar #125409 to #125391 - thedumbledore (04/03/2014) [-]
How do you deal with the feeling of it being eternal though?
I know it's an odd question, but i can't word it any other way. I'm learning ways of coping that work for me with anything else- with a bit of aid from here, actually, but this is new to me and I don't know how to deal.
Therapist is fully booked until end of april, so I thought I'd come here again. Helped with a panic attack technique in the past.

If you cant live like that maybe you should change how you live?
User avatar #125381 to #125380 - thedumbledore (04/03/2014) [-]
I appreciate 99% of advice, but that is BEYOND stupid. I can't change anything at the moment. I am in no place to.
I am currently working just not trying to off myself and get out of my fucking bed in the morning.
User avatar #125417 to #125381 - serotonin (04/03/2014) [-]
you said `` I don't know what the fuck to do, I can't live like this.`` also now ``I am currently working just not trying to off myself``. That is exactly why I said what I said. I didnt mean SUCK IT UP but that maybe you should change your sourounding and way of life. Change town, go to fucking nowhere and work as a farm hand for a month or two. travel somewhere. Cooping with change in envioremant and life might get life juice flowing. Aspargers might be problem in doing this but hell, you cant just sit on your hands and slide down.

Now, I am not psychotherapist (i am just ordinary psychologist) so you should discus this with your therapist if you descide to take my advice

I'm not actually asking for advice on my life as I live it. I was just giving some background. I was looking for advice or people who have gone through the feeling of it being forever.

Saying to someone who is depressed or has a serious issue 'well, maybe sometime needs to change' is just so irritating.
Really? No fucking shit! That's what I have a therapist for. 'Just change something' is not easy even for a regular person. It's not 'good advice' it's just the most obvious thing ever.

So i have a problem with my eyebrows
I pluck them alot and get zits between them every now and then i usually pop them
but no i notice that i have a slightly darker area between them thats red sometimes could they be scarred?
User avatar #125379 to #125356 - thedumbledore (04/03/2014) [-]
I get darker/irritated skin for a while with plucking, but after moisturizer it usually goes away.
Don't pop zits. It spreads all of the yucky stuff on your face and is just likely to give you more of them. It CAN scar, but it won't often. Leave the area be for a while, don't pop and more zits and maybe try a different method of hair removal if it is REALLY bothering you. Threading, waxing and even some special facial hair removal creams are an option.
Just never EVER fucking shave them. My mate did it, and it was hilarious.
User avatar #125363 to #125356 - Ottovan (04/03/2014) [-]
Frequent irritation to one spot of your skin, like plucking hair or popping zits prematurely can cause scarring and dark marks.

Wash your face thoroughly with aloe soap, and don't pluck your eyebrows more than once every 2 weeks.

Talk to her about my advice in the comment below. Anxiety, stress, depression, fear, panic is all things created by the human brain.

If your brain created it, it can also get rid of it.
User avatar #125355 to #125353 - Ottovan (04/03/2014) [-]
Breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, hold it for 4 seconds, then exhale through your mouth for 4 seconds.

Do this repeatedly while using your brain to tell your heart to slow down.

Monks use this technique to keep tranquility. The human brain can control your body in many ways.

Look at the palm of your hand. Now imagine it getting hotter, like your holding a warm rock you picked up at the beach. Feel your hand getting hotter and growing red.

This is how monks keep themselves warm in cold temperatures. Train your brain to talk to your heart and your intuition.

No problem.

Also, if you think of thoughts like a happy memory, or a person you're sexually attracted to can help lower your heart rate. It's all in the mind, baby... It's all in the mind

So FJ, I just found out that one of my best friends cut himself because of something his parents said to him, and I really want to say something to his sister, as I don't know how his parents would react (They're crazy), but I don't know if I want to cause him some shit cause I feel like it is only gonna be a one time thing. What should I do? Wait and see if he cuts himself again or tell his sister ASAP?

So a few weeks back I posted about how I had become scared to go into public on my own since being chased through a park earlier that day, and being held at knife point the year before.

I've doing the journey home with friends or family ever day since, but I'm still absolutely terrified about going out by myself. I'm not sure if it's because of my past experiences, but for some reason I feel like my area has got a whole lot worse lately. For example today on my way to school this guy fairly aggressively asked me if I smoked (presumably wanted a cig/lighter) and I absolutely bricked it. Then on the next bus some other guy was shouting, hitting windows, barging past people and looking for trouble. I got a few dodgy looks, and felt like the only reason it didn't escalate was because I was with so many other people.

Which brings me to my next problem. In about a months time, I will go on study leave. Because of the way [continued]
#125352 to #125349 - anonexplains (04/03/2014) [-]
my exams are scheduled, I will have to make the trip to and from school on my own on 13 different days, all at 'odd' times (going into school 12ish and coming home later then when most schools finish for the day) I'm absolutely terrified to the point where I've bought a 3rd fucking calculator to give to one of my teachers, just incase I get mugged on the way and lose my other 2 (All subjects are dependant on me having a scientific one and If I dont have one I will straight up fail)

I don't want to live like this, unable to leave the fucking house on my own. I feel pathetic. Up untill I was held at knife point late last year I could easily go out, I'd been doing it for a good 6 or 7 years for no problem but now I'm certain the next time I leave the house on my own, I won't come back.

Where are you exactly? In my mind I'm thinking up north in the United States for some reason. You should take some self defense class, or you don't have to, but it might make you feel more secure.

One of my old teachers was from a bad neighborhood, the advise her father told her was to walk around with your key in your fist with the teeth poking out between your fingers. It's not much, but considering she's here today I'm guessing no one messed with her.

#125357 to #125354 - anonexplains (04/03/2014) [-]
Aha no, I live in England. I'm sort of a worrier by nature, and because of how close my exams are this year (Ones that will decide if I go to uni) most of my free time is consumed by working (Need AAA or I don't get in). If I do get in though (And If I do, i'll start in october) self defence classes will be a definite, especially as I will be living in a new city and won't know anyone (Christ knows how I'm going to cope) but until then, I just don't think I'll have the time.
