    I've used it a few times - I think it helps the formation of the stool... maybe? I haven't taken it consistently enough to really notice...

    Never heard of it for teeth whitening! Interesting. I use coconut oil

    I've tried slippery elm bark before. It helps to lubricate the digestive tract. It worked good but I need mag citrate no matter what. That's what I use now. I usually take up to 800 mg at night.
    Mag is one of those things that never worked for me... I guess it means by issues are not caused by a deficiency.

    What subject do you wish you had paid more attention to in school?
    I don't think there were any that I regret not paying enough attention to. I was a pretty good student until I got really depressed.
    What is your idea of heaven?
    I don't really have any beliefs as to "places you go", but I like to think it's just peace.
    What music do you and you father/mother have in common?
    The Beatles.
    In what way are you superstitious?
    Probably no ways. I can't think of anything.
    What musical interments do you wish you could play?
    The piano. I played from '97-'01 and I enjoyed it, but disliked practicing. I miss it now and keep wanting to get a keyboard & re-teach myself. I can't read music very well anymore.
    What is your favorite book?
    The first thing that comes to mind is Sabriel, by Garth Nix.
    What is the worst flavor of ice cream?
    Coffee is the first one that comes to mind (don't kill me).
    What is the furthest north you have traveled?
    Somewhere in Maine, unless Seattle is farther north.
    Where were you in life 10 years ago?
    I was between freshman and sophomore years in high school. This time of year, I was probably living at my friend's house and in the pool, or on my family's annual vacation to the beach. My depression was just starting to get really bad!
    What is the best costume you have worn?
    I used to have pretty sweet home-made costumes, but I think my favorite was Livewire originally from Superman: The Animated Series.
    Did you ever want to change your name? If is to what?
    See my username? In my mid-teens, I started feeling like neither of my names (legal & nickname) suited me. I started using nameless- as a format for usernames. It stuck, but I feel pretty concrete in my names now. I purposely started using my legal name at my jobs post-college since nobody ever called me that because I wanted to actually associate with the name.
    What was the first concert you went to see?
    I went to some with my family when I was younger (including Rockapella), but My Chemical Romance was my first w/o parents.
    What book have you attempted to read several times but have never been able to finish?
    Can't think of one, I like to finish books.
    If you could have a drink with someone from history who would it be?
    My grandfather. I don't really care that much about dead celebrities.
    What is the worst physical pain you have ever been in?
    That's hard to say because I've never been seriously injured. I've never even broken any bones.
    What color underwear are you wearing?
    White with some flowery things. They're very girly ><
    What do you do to impress someone you are attracted to?
    Movie trivia?
    What do you miss from your childhood?
    Being oblivious to bad things. Wow, that's pessimistic. I miss sleeping in my 101 Dalmatians bedsheets and the feeling of waking up on a cold morning and knowing there's no school. It's not the same now. There's always work.
    What is the saddest movie?
    Hmmm, The Green Mile made me cry.
    What is the longest you have been without sleeping?
    No longer than 24 hrs. I don't function well without sleep and caffeine doesn't sit well with me.
    What word do you love the sound of?
    Nothing comes to mind =\
    What is the best adaptation of a book to a movie?
    Shit, this is a good question and we see a lot of movies so I really should be able to answer this. I'm blanking. I fucking love the LotR trilogy. I know it's not super faithful to the books (have read them, but not for a long time), but they're just fucking good.
    What movie can you watch over and over again?
    I have seen Hellboy a lot. I watched the LotR trilogy over and over in high school, along with Pirates of the Caribbean, but I can't watch those too frequently anymore.
    What do you have an irrational fear of?
    The only thing I feel like I'm really afraid of is being physically assaulted, but I don't think that's irrational.
    If you had to move what city would you like to live in?
    Seattle. The rain might kill me, but I've always wanted to live there. Hulky was stationed in Washington for a year and loves the area. My parents met there while working after college.

    A Song of Ice and Fire--I love the entire series although books 1-3 are better than 4-5. And when is book six going to come out?!

    What is the worst flavor of ice cream?
    I agree with Derp here--mint is gross, and Ben & Jerry's usually too sweet.

    Either Boise, Montana or Seattle, Washington. Not sure which one is further north.

    Where were you in life 10 years ago?
    College (Berkeley).

    What is the best costume you have worn?
    Halloween of 2002, I dressed up as a vampire. Even had the plastic fangs glued to my teeth. They hurt, but it was a good look.

    Did you ever want to change your name? If is to what?
    Yes, and I did. My mom named me Michelle. I subsequently changed my name, and you know what I changed it to. I kept Michelle as my middle name though, and sometimes I still go by it, just to confuse others and myself.

    Oh, this is hard. Can't decide. Richard Feynman--but only if I also get to have sex with him (and, obviously, it would have to be Feynman when he was in his thirties or early forties, not when he's an old man ). If it's strictly drinks, I'll have to think more about it. Woodrow Wilson--but only if I get to shoot him.

    What is the worst physical pain you have ever been in?
    When I had severe abdominal pain caused by following instructions given to me by a doctor (never trust doctors). It wasn't the most pain I've ever been in, but it was the worst because it lasted 12+ hours at one point.

    What color underwear are you wearing?
    Oh, this is embarrassing. You couldn't have asked this on a day when I was wearing more normal underwear. Well, it's white with red ladybugs on it.

    What do you do to impress someone you are attracted to?
    Depends on the person.

    What do you miss from your childhood?
    Being young/having my whole life in front of me.

    What is the saddest movie?
    Conversations with Other Women. Not sure if it's really the saddest, but I remember crying a lot during it. I don't really pay much attention to movies.

    What is the longest you have been without sleeping?
    More than 2 days but less than 3.

    What word do you love the sound of?
    phenethylamine

    Not sure, but I guess Lord of the Rings was okay.

    I'm old enough to have clear memories of the prehistoric days of no internet.
