Your Questions About Checklist Question Example

David asks…

what do i absolutely need for college?

i have the checklist that every store gives out for when i go dorm shopping. but my question is, what do i need that might not be on the checklist?
for example, it doesn’t cover school supplies. i would’ve never known to get a stapler if my friend hadn’t told me that some professors count down points if you don’t staple your papers ahead of time.

does anybody have any other tips of things i should get?
and also, do i really NEED pillow protectors like it says on the list? or is that for more paranoid people?

A three hole punch for the 100 of power points handouts
and a binder to hold them
dishes, (microwave safe,cups, mugs, and silverware
tavel mug and water bottle
a good backpack or messenger bag
a lock box or trunk to lock up your valaubes and lap top
I like a printer so that you do not have to walk across campus to print something just before class and it can also make a simple copy if you need it in a hurry.
A surge protector
charger for all of your electronics
a deck of cards

Pillow protectors. Do you use them at home? You are bringing the pillows. I would not.

Paul asks…

Problem with my 3 year old.?

My son will be turning 3 in june. Apparently, when I ask him a question, for example: Do you need some juice? His answer will be: Juice, and If i ask him something he doesnt need, he”ll whine!!!It has now come to a point where he says I need juice, but I couldnt make him tell Yes or No . and If I insist I feel like but I am not too sure I he understood what meant Yes and what meant No. I looked up on the autistic checklist too, HE doesnt coem under any of the points other than this. Any inputs will be helpful to get me an idea to how to make him understand yes and No.
This is a serious question and it would be really helpful if people can come with solutions than making fun of me!

financi4 answers:

I would say he probably understands, but doesn’t see the need to use yes and no. There’s no quick resolution, but i would suggest talking to him a lot and asking lots of yes/no questions: Do you see the bird? Do you hear the fire truck? That will get him in the habit of using yes/no, and establish if he understands. Another way to tell: does he know what YOU mean when you say yes/no? I bet he does.

On the other hand, he could just be going through a stubborn phase–we’re going through the same thing right now. That’s nothing to worry about. And, based on what you’ve said, i doubt autism is anything to worry about either.

Good luck!

Richard asks…

Most important things to decide upon before….?

My hubb and I are trying for baby (we have 11 and 13 y/o, and my mind is a complete blank….what are a list of questions/checklist of decisions to decide before birth?

to circumcise or not
breast or bottle feed

At this point, I don’t think anyone’s suggestions would be out of place, I’m the type the better prepared I can be, the happier I am

financi4 answers:

Home birth or hospital birth?
Doctor or midwife? (or go it alone?)
Natural birth or controlled birth?
Pain meds or no pain meds?
Who do you want at the birth with you?
Do you want to tape it?
How early do you want to transfer to hospital? (if applicable)
Breastfeed or bottlefeed?
Circumcision or no?
Do you want the baby with you immediately after birth and to stay with you until you are released?
Do you want prenatal care? If so…. How much?
Do you want your baby to have shots and routine stuff at birth?

Here is a few websites with a birth plan example on them. You can use it as a guide and start thinking of all this stuff now. It’s good to have a birth plan ready, and you can change things on it whenever you like, but when the time comes, others will know your wishes (when you’re too tired and such from labor to let them know your wishes verbally).

Good Luck!

Daniel asks…

What are some ‘games’ some Christians play at times?


Along the lines of that book years ago ‘Games people play’ by psychologist
Eric Berne. (And it’s the nature of people that this questions addresses,
not this psychologist).

Here’s an excerpt from a good article on this:

Games People Play
People often live their lives by consistently and predictably playing out identifiable games in their inner and interpersonal relationships. They play games to avoid reality, conceal ulterior motives, rationalize their reactive behavior or to avoid the responsibility of active participation in life situations.

There are many styles here, and there are always reasons this is done.

Here’s a couple just to get you thinking about some things Christians
might do.

(And you can think of things to do with the bible, church, committees etc).

The PURPOSE of this is for us to see and catch if we do any of this.
And we will remember that OTHERS, (read atheists!!) see this very well.
So why not have a look ourselves?

And atheists, you’d be surprised (?) (maybe?) that others like
yourselves ALSO do some of these things. But perhaps
you know all that …also.

These are JUST examples, not what Christians might do.

Kick Me
Played by people whose social manner invites them to be kicked. If people will not kick them, they will behave more and more provocatively until they have exceeded the limits, thereby forcing them to oblige. The jilted. . .the job losers.., the rejected.

Conditional Love
I will love you if… then comes the checklist. If you don’t accept my checklist in every way, I’ll withdraw attention, acceptance, affection. If you do match my checklist, I’ll reward you.

Here’s the site where these were found, but there are lots more where
those came from!!;_ylu=X3oDMTE0OGpmZTBwBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDNwRjb2xvA2FjMgR2dGlkA0NBQzAwMV83Mw–/SIG=12g9jq2k9/EXP=1341241835/**http%3a//

If you can come up with a name and explanation for this ‘game’,
that would make it interesting, helpful.

Sorry if this turned out long, but getting it clear enough required
some explanation.

This will be ‘carnal Christians’ who do these things. If you’ve served
on committees in churches, or been even to some prayer groups,
or been to some churches, or had any groups at all, you have noticed
repeated wrong behaviors that get into a fixated mode, and these are
wrong, but people can’t help it. There are books that put names to these,
so we can spot them, stay out of those.

‘Dodge ball’ is the single most popular carnal Christian
game played – right here on Yahoo answers.

When you ask a question which lands the ball squarely
in the court of ‘standing’ carny christians, they dodge
that ball, by answering as if you had posted a quite
different, impotent question.

The type of ball you rarely, if ever, serve.

Another popular one is the ‘Board’ game.

This involves the church committee, or
leadership ranks.

They discuss at length the problems
of the congregation or world at large
whilst remaining on high (ivory tower).

Or they cite those disobedient Israelites
of the OT or NT Corinthians/Galatians as
if they’ve removed that BOARD from their
own eyes.

They haven’t. Thus the game.

Great fun … For some.

I think it’s pathetic.

I should know. Been there done that.

Mark asks…

How many of you double-check “references”?

A recent question about a “Christian Checklist” was answered by a thorough barrage of statistics about the horrors of homosexuality–everything from the lie that AIDS is primarily a homosexual disease to gays being carriers of flukes. Or was it tapeworms? It was chosen “best answer” with a “thanks for the references” comment.

But I teach English (and research papers) and the citations looked suspicious. One, for example, was from a “Medical Journal of Homosexuality,” which just sounded… odd. So I checked. No such animal! The Library of Congress never heard of it. So… when you see a thorough “works cited” list of something, how often do YOU check to see if it’s BS or not?

FYI, here’s a full article showing the misrepresentations from the list in question:
I think this is the link for the original question:;_ylt=AsF2I.wnu2wj7DrBV.ZlkJbsy6IX?qid=20070102223306AAMCY9B&show=7#profile-info-6e49a2e02673c59d58a2fb7736b935eaaa

financi4 answers:

Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t.

I have learned, through experience, to be very skeptical of certain sources, and I always check references for those.

But if it’s an issue I care very much about, I’ll check references no matter the source.

Also, I urge people to go to the *appropriate* source for information, like going to the Department of Education for any CORRECT information about religious expression in American public schools. Not that it makes one darn bit of difference to people who want to believe that they are being persecuted. I doubt that they ever check to find out the truth.

Which simply proves that they’d rather feel self-righteous and “persecuted” than know the truth or ever graduate to questioning why their religious leaders tell them lies about the subject.
