Mark asks…

Switching Schools?

Last year, my family thought I should switch schools, because I wasn’t completely happy (although now I realize it was just being a stupid middle school girl). But I applied to other schools and eventually did switch, partly because I though they knew what was best for me and partly because I had an unrealistic idea of what it would be like. Towards the end of the year, though, I found a niche/friends that I really liked and began having doubts. As it turns out, the doubts were right- this year has pretty much sucked. I hate my (new) friends and really really miss everything/one I left behind at my old school. Now I’m thinking of switching back (but my courses might be all screwed up). Any advice? Thanks :o)

Stop switching school and concentrate on your education, give your self time to adapt to the new school, and the friends their.

How do you get over thinking ‘what if’?

Last year, my family thought I should switch schools, because I wasn’t completely happy (although now I realize it was just being a stupid middle school girl). But I applied to other schools and eventually did switch, partly because I though they knew what was best for me and partly because I had an unrealistic idea of what it would be like. Towards the end of the year, though, I found a niche/friends that I really liked and began having doubts. As it turns out, the doubts were right- this year has pretty much sucked. I hate my (new) friends and really really miss everything/one I left behind at my old school, and I keep on thinking what my life would have been like if I’d stayed. I know that for me to be happy I need to get over thinking what might have been, but I can’t (and the feeling hasn’t gone away over the months). Any advice?

New Niche Finder answers:

Its normal to think about what would have happened when you’re tired of what is happening.

Next time you start thinking “What if…?” counter it with “SO WHAT!”

Look at the positive part of going to a new school. No one really knows your history, so you can become a new person! There are always new friends. If you don’t like these new friends ditch them and get better ones!

Chris asks…

Has she lost interest?

This is a long one. If you don’t wanna read it that’s cool but to those who do: thanks. I’m 14 and a freshman in high school and have had a crush on this one girl since the 7th grade. My buddy fucked me over that year though and asked her out for me before I hadn’t really talked to her before. She turned me down (obviously) and I was pissed off and pretty much gave up on her. All through 7th grade I only had a few not very close friends and was a pretty big loner, a lot of people thought I was emo cause I had long hair and sat alone all the time. But last year I found my niche and have stuck with them since. One of the kids in my group has also been crushing on this girl for a while so I gave up on her for most of the year. Since becoming more socially active I’ve cut my hair and changed a lot and last year a couple of my friends told me that this same girl found me attractive and talked about me to them sometimes. So the new school year just started and we’ve been talking a little and we have a few things in common. (mostly weed smoking and things that go along with that.) we have gym class together and she partners up with me sometimes and says hi a lot. My friends say she still says she likes me but I’ve been trying to text her and maybe hang out sometime but lately she’s been turning me down and giving me one word responses. I really like this girl and want to get to know her even as just friends if not more but despite how she talks about me shes been unenthusiastic and not wanting to hang out this whole weekend. I’m really confused. If anyone has any idea way might be going on in her head and could let me know that would be great. Should I keep trying or do you think that she just doesn’t like my personality and I need to move on? Thanks for reading and any responses would be helpful.

New Niche Finder answers:

I think you should keep trying. She might be in a bad mood and/or moody. Girls are like that I have a friend who is moody and just doesn’t talk to people then the next day she’s super happy again. Maybe she’s just having a bad day. Talk to her a little bit on Monday or whenever you see her again and see what she does and don’t mention the texting stuff yet…

New Niche Finder answers:

You can keep trying if you really like her still. I think she likes your personality ‘cuz she always talks to you. And I also think that she wants to be friends with you. But, I’m warning you, at first she didn’t like you at 7th grade, then now, she likes you. I think she judges people through the appearance and not the personality. She might get over you again from some of the time. Yeah. Ummmhm. Good Luck.

Lizzie asks…

O lazyweb, any thoughts on the biology of my planet?

I have a sci fi idea I’ve been playing with, and if I ever actually write it I’d like to not make any actual scientists who read it fall out of their chairs laughing at me. I’ll be asking variations of this question in several sections over the next few days. I’d appreciate everyone’s thoughts.

So. The planet is a little warmer, and probably a little larger, than Earth. It has almost no land (no individual chunks larger than, say, New Zealand, and the entire land mass smushed together would be smaller than North America). It has severe, essentially constant storms. The storms contain an electrical-based sapience (possibly quantum-entangled particles or something, or maybe just patterns of electrical energy in the storms themselves). But, other than the storms and the lack of land (and possibly other electrical effects in the upper atmosphere), it is entirely suitable for human habitation. That is, it has breathable air, a tolerable range of temperatures, comfortable gravity, and so on.

The storms are the larval stage of a life form that, as adults, live somewhere in the upper atmosphere (probably the lower stratosphere) as a group intelligence. Our Heroine will be a telepath hired to check the planet for sapient life by would-be colonizers (there are Laws about colonizing inhabited planets…). She, along with Our Hero, a professional pilot, (not a romantic interest, btw…) will be flying around in a surface-to-space craft that is probably not entirely unlike the best small plane we could manufacture with today’s technology, in terms of handling (think souped-up military jet or something)

So, any thoughts on the probable biology of my planet, and/or the biomechanical explanation of telepathy?

I’m assuming the planet would have little or no land life (“land” is not a very profitable niche when there’s so little of it), but likely abundant fish, algae, undersea invertebrates, and so on. A few slightly amphibious critters around the islands, and a little in the way of land plants (though maybe not much more than moss), but I’m not sure if the islands would be more colonized than that or not. I’d imagine the constant storms would mean there would be no tree-equivalents, however, and I don’t know if the storms would substantially effect ocean life.

On telepathy, I figured that it was a very subtle inherent human ability boosted by some drug to usable ranges. I figured an un-boosted telepath could just about be able to read your mind when she’s touching you, but a boosted telepath has a range up to several miles. But I’d like at least semi-plausible technobabble for how telepathy actually works.

New Niche Finder answers:

In some ways your planet sounds like what Earth used to be, except that your land mass is much smaller than Pangaea.
